Lord I will trust you with the seasons of my life

Dear God

I trust You with the times and seasons  of my life. I pray that your make Yourself known to me and to my family  and that we will follow Your ways. Instead of trying to control my life, I turn it over to You. O Lord, forgive me for ever doubting Your Presence in my life. I know that all blessings come from You. Your grace is sufficient for me and is not bound by limitations. It is through faith that that I may receive Your grace and  with faith comes trust, obedience and salvation.

Whenever fear overwhelms me, I shall seek You, whispering the name of Jesus, knowing that He hears me and will answer me. Jesus says seek Me, and you will find Me.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

The love of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ surpasses all understanding. It is unfailing, given in abundance and for all to receive.

Thank You,  Jesus Christ, that You will let no one separate me from Your love. Even now, You stands before our Father God, interceding on my behalf, knowing what to pray for me, knowing what it is I need. Your Holy Spirit lives in me and is my Guide and Counselor.

Let me not be discouraged, nor falter in moving along the path You have set before me. Open the eyes and ears of my heart that I may see, hear and act on your Word. Even when I don’t know why I am in certain circumstances, I know that you are there with me.

You are the Creator of all things, You sustain the universe, You are the great “I AM” , Who was, Who is, and Who forever will be. I pray that I shall never let the world’s condemnations stop me from moving on Your chosen path, nor keep me from speaking your Name or of the love you have for all of us. Your mercy and forgiveness is for everyone and I pray that I shall share this message and not be discouraged nor let condemnation or fear of ridicule keep me from doing so.

I pray in Jesus’s most precious and Holy Name.

Romans 8:34-36  New International Version (NIV)
34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered

Are your quilt squares filled with holes?

Are your quilt squares filled with holes?

An e-mail sent to me describes the life of someone who faced our Lord at the last judgment as squares of a quilt laid out in many piles with an angel who sewed the squares to make up a tapestry of  her life.

“I noticed how ragged and empty each of my squares was. They were filled with giant holes. Each square was labeled with a part of my life that had been difficult, the challenges and temptations I was faced with in everyday life. I saw hardships that I endured, which were the largest holes of all.” ………”My angel was sewing the ragged pieces of cloth together, threadbare and empty, like binding air”.

When this woman held up her quilt she felt shame, “I hadn’t had all the earthly fortunes. I had love in my life, and laughter. But there had also been trials of illness, and wealth, and false accusations that took from me my world, as I knew it. I had to start over many times. I often struggled with the temptation to quit, only to somehow muster the strength to pick up and begin again. I spent many nights on my knees in prayer, asking for help and guidance in my life. I had often been held up to ridicule, which I endured painfully, each time offering it up to the Father in hopes that I would not melt within my skin beneath the judgmental gaze of those who unfairly judged me.”

As she held her tapastry up before the Lord, light flooded the many holes creating an image of the face of Christ. When Christ stood before her He said: “Every time you gave over your life to Me, it became My life, My hardships and My struggles. Each point of light in your life is when you stepped aside and let Me shine through, until there was more of Me than there was of you”

This beautiful illistration demonstates the way Christ works in our lives, if we step aside and let His Light shine through us.
As we approach the time we remember and celebrate His great sacrifice, giving up His own Life that we may have a new life with Him, let us give our thanks to Him with great love and gratitude.

“It is not what we do, but Who He is, not who we are, but what He did.”   The Prince of Peace and Love
