TO SHARE LOVE

Photography, Praise

in all thy ways

 Help me today Lord

           To keep my thoughts on You.

   May each thing I do,

     And each thing I say,

              Give honor and praise to You.

       For Your love to share.

 

 

IN ALL THY WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND HE SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS.                         (PROV 3:6 KJV)

 

AS I SEE YOU THERE

Photography, Praise, Video

One afternoon while sitting on my front porch, I noticed this Stick Bug.  I knew that it was certainly lost from its natural habitat.  I felt there were lessons that I and maybe others could learn from this Stick Bug.

AS I SEE YOU THERE

I wonder as I see you there,

How lonely you must be.

Far away from your home,

Your surroundings so strange indeed.

I watch you as you struggle to move,

Just to go a little more.

Can a lesson be found,

Maybe one about loneliness?

Giving thanks to God always,

That people never have to feel alone.

Hebrews 13:5-6 (HCSB)

5 Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I  will never leave you or forsake you.                      6  Therefore, we may boldly say,  The Lord is my helper:  I will not be afraid.  What can man do to me?

Hello Everyone

Praise, Thoughts Today

Two weeks, no post, that’s a long time. Doctor’s visits, an over night hospital visit for test disrupted any plans I might have had.   Suddenly, I realized I needed a plan when I was going to post to the blog. A plan so that anyone following me would know when to expect a post from me. I’ve learned this by following other’s blogs. I know when they are going to post, and that is really nice. So I have decided, I will have a post the first of each week. If there is something I can’t wait to share, I might post it earlier but I will still have a post the first of each week.

Understanding

Praise, Thoughts Today

Weeks later I am still trying to organize the blog to make it flow easily and but I am not sure that I am accomplishing that. I would like to see it organized as I see some other blogs but I have learned to accept and be happy with what I have done.  I hope that you can find my older post if you are visiting for the first time if that is what you desire to do. I will keep posting and trying new ways . Thank each one of you that have liked, followed, commented and supported me.

Beginning

Praise, Thoughts Today

I have to admit, blogging or should I say creating the site has been very time consuming for me. WordPress gives excellent instructions and help guides but my understanding of some terminology is lacking. However, if any one started following me at the beginning you have been able to see changes being made. As I continue with this you probably will see more changes as I hope I learn more about how to use everything that is available.

Do Not Be Afraid

Praise, Thoughts Today

 

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 4:20NIV

Wow! Do you really believe that? Do you know that you can accomplish anything that God wants you to. I know that I believe it. I also know that our big obstacle for accomplishment is fear. Fear that we will not do it the right way,that others will not like it, or that we will just simply fail with what we start. For some of us it is just getting up in the morning that is hard or having a smile on our face. While many others have therapy or exercises to do and my dear precious friends who are facing radiation and chemotherapy. So how do we overcome this fear? What do we do with it?
In  1 Peter 5:7 NIV, we are told to cast our anxiety on God because He cares for us.
So we give that fear to God and that means letting Him have all of it.
And then in Isaiah we read how God will strengthen us and uphold us. We are not to be afraid.Isaiah 41:10 NIV
So do not fear, for I am with you;do not be dismayed, for I am your God.I will strengthen you and help you;I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
He is our God. Do not be afraid or dismayed. He will strengthen us. He helps and upholds us.
This is what our minds and hearts need to be refreshed and filled with every day.
