"Be still and know that I am God."
A simple message; so easy to say.
Yet when the storms of life hit,
does a lack of faith get in the way?
He tells me in His Word
"Cast all your cares upon me"
So what makes that so hard to do ~
to just let go and let it be?
Nevermore to pick it up
or try to handle it on my own.
Simply take it to My Father,
and place it at the foot of the throne
Instead of trying to understand
all the hows and whys of things;
why not trust Him enough to handle it
and receive the peace surrendering brings?
So simple yet so difficult;
surrendering brings about peace.
With an act of faith believing
He bears the load and I find release.
Such a welcome relief to find shelter
in arms that offer comfort and rest
of the Living God who will never fail me
when I trust Him through the test.
"Be still and know that I am God"
The place where all struggles cease
For He'll faithfully see me through everything
when I just "Be still" and embrace His peace.
"not I, but Christ"
"When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you." Isaiah 43:2
"...call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me."
There are always times when we question things. Whether or not you have been "good" enough to make it into heaven should not be one of them though. Being a good or moral person will not get you into heaven. What matters is whether or not you have received Jesus into your heart as savior.. because THAT is the only way anyone will ever enter into heaven. Maybe it is time you asked yourself some questions afterall. Click on me and I'll take you to a page that will help you find the answers.
Father, I am so thankful that when the storms of life hit us that we can seek refuge in your arms... that we can be confident that no matter what You will never leave nor forsake us. You have given us the Holy Spirit as our comforter and have provided all the we could ever have need of through the death of Your Son, Jesus, on the cross. I can't even begin to comprehend the agony of His sacrifice and the depth of love it took for Him to do that for us.. but I am thankful for it.. so very thankful. Help us to turn to You when we don't know which way to go. Help us to look to You when all our eyes can see are the circumstances around us. Help us to call out Your name when we are so numb with pain or fear that we cannot utter anything else. Help us to just be still and let the peace that passeth all understanding saturate our souls as we remain standing and trusting in You to work Your good and perfect will in our lives. Bless each person that visits this site and begin a work in their life as only You can do. In Jesus' most precious holy name we pray.... in all things we give You the praise, honor and glory, Lord. Amen and amen.

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
Sometimes I ask the question, "My Lord, is this your will?"
It's then I hear you answer me, "My Precious Child ...be still."
Sometimes I feel frustrated, cause I think know what's best.
It's then I hear you say to me, "My Busy Child...just rest"
Sometimes I feel so lonely and I think I'd like a mate.
Your still small voice gets oh so clear and says,
"My Child ...please wait"
"I know the plans I have for you, the wondrous things you'll see;
If you can just be patient, Child, and put your trust in me.
I've plans to draw you closer. I've plans to help you grow,
There's much I do you cannot see and much you do not know.
But know this, Child ...I LOVE YOU. You are Precious unto Me.
Before I formed you in the womb, I planned your destiny.
I've something very special I hope for you to learn.
The gifts I wish to give to you are gifts you cannot earn.
They come without a price tag, but not without a cost;
at Calvary, I gave My Son, so You would not be lost.
Rest Child, and do not weary of doing what is good.
I promise I'll come back for you just like I said I would.
Your name is written on my palm, I never could forget;
Therefore, do not be discouraged when my answer is... "Not Yet"
"Worship Medley" played by Luke Teo
This poem came about at a time in my life when there was total chaos in my life. I found myself in a position where I was so desperately searching for answers only to find more confusion and questions. I knew in my heart what the Lord was telling me, yet I was having such a difficult time doing that. I knew that only totally trusting in Him would bring about the peace and truth that I needed in my life. I praise God that He continued to reach out to me until I was finally able to do what He kept whispering to my soul.
Love Him enough to trust Him. He will never let you down.
Love in Christ,
"not I, but Christ"
