Why do we have no qualms about missing worship,
yet are so very quick to make the false claim that our prayers go unheard?
Thankfully, we are loved and forgiven! – Martha LShaw
The clouds break apart
dampened grass between my toes
Ah, new beginnings

Your love fills my soul
And your peace
Is like nothing I could imagine.
This morning I woke with a start,
I stopped to think
And stumbled off the path.
My fear frozen heart beat too fast
And my mind drew me
In another direction
But not a good one.
I breathed deeply,
I called out to you,
And you showed me the map
Leading me back to you.
The peace in my soul
Softly comforted me.
Ready for a new day
Filled with wonder,
Filled with you.

An apology is NOT giving up nor giving in. It is a statement that the relationship is more important than who was right or who was wrong.
Often, sadly, the bickering continues long after the cause of it is forgotten. Please don’t let this happen!
We get wrapped up in our request,
we wonder when the answer will come.

Our response all too often?

‘ . . . land flowing with milk and honey . . . ” Exodus 33
I was doing my usual morning things and suddenly in the middle of this, the Lord stopped me with a message He wanted shared. Maybe it’s for you.
We all have regrets which hold us back from all He holds out to us. A huge one was just placed on my heart. FORGIVENESS. It is hard, but by FAR the hardest one for me to forgive is MYSELF. He wants me . . . us, to do that. Receive His peace. IT IS YOURS!
Marked As Yours
Your arms stretched out,
“it is finished” is what you said,
But for me it had only just begun.
All those years before my birth,
Your hand print of love
Was already on my soul
And eternal life with you was mine
Before my first breath!
Yours is a love without beginning
And without end!
