*****God's love and Promises******

Happy Sunday my Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

Gods creatures big and small are such perfection, the color the way their systems work the way the flowers are pollinated by the bugs, wind, and how this bug is that bugs food, and this animal is needed for the prevention on infestations, I mean, our God worked it all out perfectly, for the plants, trees, and animals, image His great plan for us, His loving Children. He created us in His image, wow created in God's image, we say it often, but when you think about that, it is loaded with responsibilities, and we can't let our Father down. We must be obedient and fulfill our purpose, and give him the GLORY. As He tells us in Jeremiah,

Jeremiah 29:11New International Version (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
God also tells us it's all good in Romans,
Romans 8:28New International Version (NIV)
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.
I pray we all enjoy the rest of this long weekend, continue to be a vehicle for God, let His light shine through all we do and say, and may the wisdom, and clarity of the Holy Spirit, lead our week of circumstances, temptations, and trials, as we wear our armor fully and proudly, so He can keep His promise in 1Corithians,
1 Corinthians 10:13New International Version (NIV)
13 No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[b] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[c] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
We lift this and all things up in the blood and name of Jesus amen
Hugs and love Patricia I pray the below poem from my upcoming book "Poems of the Eternal Heart a Daily Devotional encourages your week xoxox
Our Loving Father
Our loving Father does all he can,
to help His children grow,
 at times it's clear and we understand
yet during others, we just don't know.
But in the end it's all so clear,
there was no reason for us to doubt,
because the loving Father's there,
to help His children out..
His only Goal from the start,
is to highlight what truly counts,
So once we're out in the world,
it's His wisdom  that begins to mount.
For we're taught our Heavenly Father,
is right here by our side,
and that is where He will remain,
until our final ride...

*****Stick To Our Chosen Paths******

Happy weekend To All God's loving Children,

I pray that we all have a weekend full of the love of our Father surrounding us, the Protection of our Savior watching over us, and the wisdom and discernment that the Holy Spirit communicates to us, from them both, so we may fulfill the tasks they have planned for us to complete.

We pray we keep our eyes on the Lord and not our circumstances, no matter how hard they may be, for that is just the deceiver and enemy trying to detour us off our ...path, and miss the awaiting gifts and blessings that God has placed there, the Devil makes it so appealing, or perhaps makes us feel we are somewhere to help that friend that has been lost for sometime, however, after a certain time, God makes it clear what we are to do if there is no change.

 That is why studying His word is so important to our relationship with Him, and how intimate He desires each relationship to be. So when we know His wishes, and stick to the path He chose for us, allowing us to receive ALL, not some, of the gifts and blessings, because we were not pulled onto the path of whomever we have been helping for so long, without real growth, but stuck to God's path, hand selected for us.
That is when the power of prayer comes to the rescue, because we can still lift that friend or family member up, amen.

I pray that we remember what He promised us in:

Hebrews 13:5-6New International Version (NIV)
5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
6 So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?”

Have a blessed weekend and thank you Lord for your Grace, forgiveness, and love, we lift this and all petitions up in the blood and name of Jesus, amen. I pray the below poem from my upcoming book "Poems of the Eternal Heart a Daily Devotional"
He has seen our lives,
from beginning to end,
He's our loving father,
and our dearest friend.
He does all He can.
to make sure we complete,
the life He has chosen,
without interference and deceit.
From the devil and his demons,
who presently rule this earth,
and have kept their eyes on us,
from the time of our birth.
For our Savior won the war,
and the devil knows he lost,
so he wants as many people,
to take down at any cost.
But as believers we know the truth,
and need never give into fear
because that's the weapon of the enemy,
And our God is forever near....
