Stuck!


Moses stands on the edge of the Red Sea with the Israelites bleating like scared sheep while the Egyptians bear down upon them. “It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!” NIV (Exodus 14:12).

Moses’ response to the Israelites is much like God’s response to us in the unbelievable moments of our lives when the Red Sea blocks our way and the Egyptians of our day are closing in. “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still” NIV (Exodus 14:13-14)

Who are the Egyptians bearing down on us today?  What is the Red Sea that threatens our hope? Where the tendency may be to worry, panic, and run, God tells us that we “need to be STILL.”

This day, this minute, STUCK between the Egyptians and the Red Sea, YOU can choose to LAY aside panic and instead BE STILL!

Blessings.

A Christmas to Remember !!


PART 1: TWINKLING LIGHTS.

Hello everyone! I hope, you’re all getting ready for Christmas. Please never forget who Christmas is about: JESUS, the SAVIOR of the World !!!

I love Amy Grant, this title is from one of her song. Every year, we listen to that song while decorating our Christmas tree. We specially like those words:

Twinkling lights
A chill is in the air
And carols everywhere
Close your eyes, it’s almost here
Candles and cards
And favorite movie scenes
The smell of evergreen
As special as it’s always been
And I have a dream or two
Maybe they will come true

Setting our hopes on a big snow tonight
We’ll wake up to a world of white
It’s gonna be a Christmas to remember
Light up the fire, play some Nat King Cole
Always sentimental and don’t you know that
It’s gonna be a Christmas to remember

I know it’s true
Time doesn’t stand still
Many things can change
But we know some things never will
The memories we share
The songs we always sing
The mystery of life
The hopefulness this season brings
And I have a dream or two
Maybe they will come true…

This year, once again, for our family, it’s gonna be a Christmas to remember. We’re excited to share with you our wonderful Christmas stories:  “a dream or two that came true…!

See you soon, I will have a lot to share 😉

Why???


 Why  So  Much  Suffering . . .

Why must children suffer, for the wrong we do?

Why must children pay the price for the ugly hate we spew?

Why must children have to cope with hunger and with war?

Why must children feel the wrath at Mother Nature’s core?

Why can’t children just be free and learn the way of love?

Why can’t children have no cares and love their God above?

Why should children have to worry about their future’s air?

Why must they endure these things because we were aware?!

Why is the question we must ask to truly make things right.

Why is the question we must answer so we can sleep at night.

Why can’t we now take the stand and help our children win?

THIS is why I take this stand and hope you all join in!

All You Have To Do Is Call!


Have you ever left a message for your doctor to call you and then waited all day for his reply? You can’t leave the house because you might miss him, and every time the phone rings, you’re disappointed when it’s not him.

We live in a quick-fix society, but we don’t always have quick access to those who can give us the answers we need.

Easy access and a listening ear are blessings offered by the Father to His obedient child. He is always on call!

David knew that well, and he took full advantage of his loving relationship with the Lord in calling upon Him continually. David had no trouble crying out to the Lord. He never hesitated; he easily and confidently lifted his voice to the One he knew could help. He poured out his heart; he wept; he pleaded for the Lord’s intervention.

I sometimes struggle with feeling I have to be strong when I speak with others Christians. I think I’m supposed to exhibit all the fruit of the Spirit even when I’m weak and in great distress. I think I should be joyful, patient, kind toward any enemy that may assail me. I want to show others what a “big girl” I am. I want to be strong in my own strength!

In truth, I am the Father’s imperfect child who will always be in process of growing. So what should I do with these feelings of desperation, this sense of a crushed spirit?

Our Father wants us, His children, to share freely our whole hearts with Him. My relief always lies in being honest with Him.

David is a wonderful role model for how to cast my burden upon Lord and find relief for my soul. He truly lifted up his soul to his Father: “God, here is what’s going on, and this is how i feel. I’m losing all hope, and I’m paralysed with fear. I need you!”

David easily became the child seeking refuge and solace from his Father. He admitted his inability to save himself, his total dependence on God. His intimate knowledge of God enabled him to say, “I will call on the LORD, who is worthy of praise, for he saves me from my enemies”  (Psalms 18:3).

David did not try to do for himself what he knew only God could do.

What David did well was cry. What God did well was answer and he still does!

ALL I HAVE TO DO IS CALL !!!
