COURAGE – What’s That?

Monday, May 18, 2015

Welcome, it’s Monday Blog time, Everyone!!

Well, I’ve been thinking about COURAGE for sometime now and today is the day I’m going to check in on myย level of courage…

The Good Book says: “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.” – Psalm 31:24

We all know the story of “David & Goliath” – 1 Samuel, 17… it’s this kind of courage that comes from GOD and it’s also this kind of courage we can be comforted with when we have GOD on our side.

“The greatest battle is not physical, but psychological. The demons telling us to give up when we push ourselves to the limit can never be silenced for good. They must always be answered by the quiet, steady dignity that simply refuses to give in. Courage. We all suffer. Keep going.” – Graeme Fife

” When I am afraid, I put my trust in You. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.” ย  ย  ย  -Psalm 56:3-4

“The words “in God I trust” are where the statement “In God We Trust” comes from and is printed on American currency. To not be afraid is to put your trust in God and when you have this trust in God, you will think “what can flesh (mankind) do to me?” Trust is the opposite of fear, like peace is to anxiety. Trust and obey God and leave the consequences up to Him.” – Pastor Jack Wellman

************************

There’s not a day, not one, that I don’t pray for more courage….the courage of my convictions, trust and faith in the Lord – just like David, when he stood up to Goliath. That was a pretty tall order, and he slew that giant with one stone! Really?! Yes, really!!

Here’s a very poignant Bible verse that’s an awesome daily reminder of what God has given us to work with here: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย – 2 Timothy ย 1:7 ย (try it, it helps ME!!)

So let’s ALL go … with GOD and Courage, for the rest of our days here…Hallelujah!!

May God bless you ALL in the miraculous ways only He can, then praise His name!!

I love you,

F.E.A.R. and FAITH

Monday, May 4, 2015

Welcome, Monday Bloggers!!

My weekend was totally awesome and full of surprises! I had many projects going on at once and as usual, it was a pretty crazy schedule, but also as usual, it was outstanding in many ways. You know what I always say: GOD is Good. GOD is Greatโ€”well Heย still is and more!!

Among the many blessings I enjoyed this weekend was the receiving of severalย prayer requests; some from loved ones and some from total strangersโ€”I just love it when someone, anyone, asks me to pray for them! It’s one sure-fire way for me to show my love, faith and trust in GOD, by going to Jesus in heartfelt prayer. I’m constantly in prayer for anything and everything for me and mine, so when I get the opportunity to pray for someone else, it makes me feel better, ’cause I can give God a break from me ย ย and my stuff!

What does this mean to you: “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”? These words are taken from the Lord Jesus’ model prayer in Matthew 6:10 and Luke 11:2.

“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”, is the recognition that God deserves all honor and glory.ย It expresses recognition that God’s way is always the right way and direction to follow, regardless of the circumstances we, as human beings, may find ourselves facing. When we go to God in prayer, we must remember we are praying for His will, not ours. No matter how devastating or tragic our need is in that moment of prayer, if we claim our faith…without fear, and truly trust in God’s will, then we are pleasing God and walking our faith as He expects us to do.

Let me tell you, right now though…there was a very sad and dark time for me over the past years that I became so angry at God for “letting me down” , that Iย wouldn’t even talk to Him for months!! My heart was broken, my spirit was brokenโ€”I was just broken. Period. However, in His almighty wisdom, God just hung around and waited for me to come to my senses and ask for His forgiveness. He forgave me and we moved on…together.

You see, what happened to me was that I was praying for MY will and not God’s will. Although I always ended my prayers, even to this day, with ” thy will be doneย on earth as it is in heaven”…I said it, I prayed it, but obviously I didn’t mean it. I was full of fear and ย wanted whatย  Iย wanted, and wasn’t ready for God’s will when it applied to me. It was a baaaad time in my Life and thank God, it’s over!!

The moral of this story is that Fear & Faith cannot abide together. They are not compatible orย  synonymous, theyย are opposites, unless you look at the two acronyms below:

F.E.A. R. – Forget Everything And Run

F.E.A.R. –ย  Face Everything And Rise

When we choose to walk away from fear and actually Face Everything And Rise, we can be sincere and mean it when we say “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” and accept God’s will in our lives and truly walk our Faith.

My prayer for us ALL this week, is that we will be faithful and be aware of ourselves as we walk our faith, by putting our trust in our Lord, God almighty and meaning it.

Yes,ย GOD is Good! GOD is Great!!

I love you,

Margaret

Take a leap of faith and trust in God’s perfect timing. He’s always right!
