Most of All

Thanksgiving Day brings to mind
the blessings in our lives
that usually go unnoticed:
a home that surrounds us
with comfort and protection;
delicious food, for pleasure
in both eating and sharing;
clothes to snuggle up in,
books and good entertainment
to expand our minds;
and freedom to worship our God.
Most of all we are thankful
for our family and friends,
those treasured people
who make our lives extra special.
You are part of that cherished group.
On Thanksgiving, (and every day)
we appreciate you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

God Can

When you feel unlovable, unworthy and unclean,
When you think that no one can heal you,
Remember, Friend,
God Can.

When you think that you are unforgivable
For your guilt and your shame
Remember, Friend,
God Can.

When you think that all is hidden
And no one can see within
Remember, Friend,
God Can.

And when you have reached the bottom
And you think that no one can hear
Remember my dear Friend
God Can.

And when you think that no one can love
The real person deep inside of you
Remember my dear Friend,
God Does.

I Said A Prayer For You Today

I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart although He spoke no word.
I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind.
I asked Him to send treasurers of a far more lasting kind.
I asked that He'd be near you at the start of each new day.
To grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way.
I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small.
But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all.

God is Always There

We often feel as though
God is far away
And we often feel that He
Is distant when we pray

So often we feel lonely,
Not knowing where to turn
Just a touch from God above,
Our longing spirit yearns

So many times in our lives,
God seems slow to act
We cry out in desperation,
But it's faith we often lack

For God is not being slow
In coming to our aid
He comes through in His time,
We just need to learn to wait

The Lord is never distant,
He is there by our side
And continues to walk with us
Through the storms in our lives

He always hears our hearts cry
And answers all our prayers,
He won't leave us all alone,
For God is always there.

We Matter To God

As we come before you, Lord,
And worship at your feet,
You pour out your blessings upon us
And meet us in our need

Whatever we are facing,
We can leave it with you, Lord,
And walk away with confidence
Knowing you will bear it all

For you are God almighty,
Our God in whom we trust
To unload us of our burdens
And shower us with love

Lord, you are so wonderful
To care about our lives,
Each small, insignificant detail,
Each tear that we cry

For everything about us, Lord,
Is so important to you,
You want to be involved in our lives
In everything we do

So I can't help but praise you
For the loving God you are
You care so much for every soul
And you're never very far

That we cannot touch your heart
Every time we come to pray
And we can come into your presence,
Each and every day.

To Trust You Is To Believe

Sometimes it seems impossible
To trust in you, my Lord,
But then again, it's all I have
When my back's against the wall

The pressures forever mounting up
And worsens with little hope,
Though I pray and leave it with you,
It's so hard for me to cope

I know, O Lord, you teach us patience
Especially at those times,
You want us to trust completely,
Though answers are hard to find

And there are times it seems as though
You have stepped back from us,
We feel so much alone in our mess
Not knowing, you're watching with love

You never really leave us, Lord,
Nor forsake us in our need,
You only want us to trust you
And in your word believe

You know the circumstances we're in
And know the struggles we face,
The situation, when given to you,
Can empower our faltering faith

For in your word we're told to give
To you all our anxieties
And all the worries and fears we have,
Praying for the needed victory

For in due course you will come through
To bring the needed relief
And through it all we shall develop
A stronger and deeper belief.

The Fragrance Of Grace

We are your children, Lord,
Saved by your precious grace
And walking in your victory,
Living by hope and faith

We come before your holy throne
And worship at your feet,
Our souls renewed with new hope,
Our spirits now set free

We yearn to know you more, O God,
More than we do right now
And we long for your presence, Lord,
As before your throne, we bow

May we be as fragrant offerings,
An incense of the Lord
That you may take pleasure in us,
A vessel you have called

So you may fill to overflow
With your Holy Spirit of truth,
So we can take your gospel, Lord,
To those who don't know you

And be to them as Jesus was,
To love them all despite
Wherever they have come from, Lord,
For you can change their lives

So they can come before you
And worship you with praise,
To come into your presence, Lord,
And receive your saving grace.

Refreshing Waters

Sometimes I feel I'm in a desert
Trying to find my way
The heat beating down with no relief
With no shelter through the day

Day and night, I cry out to God
That He will come to my aid
And just when I feel like giving up,
In His refreshing waters, I wade

For God supplies streams of hope
That flows to wash over me
It seems, though, for a brief moment,
A short and temporal relief

Then once again I'm in the desert
Enduring the heat and the wind
Not long, O Lord, I start to pant
For refreshing waters within

I have to stop and ask myself,
Why am I where I am?
It seems I'm wandering aimlessly
With no purpose, direction or plan

I long, O God, to find a way out,
No longer to be in this place
When, O God, shall I be released
And dwell in your mercy and grace?

I long for your refreshing waters
To daily be part of my life,
To continually be immersed in the streams
Of the blessings that flow from Christ.

The Rain Of God

Lord, you send the rain,
Giving water to the church,
To wash us and to cleanse us,
To quench our endless thirst

The rain that falls on us
Is often what we're needing,
To refresh us and restore us,
A time of awesome blessing

For often we may feel
That we are in a drought,
In need of refreshing waters
When we are running out

For with the rain of God
Comes the growth that we need
And life springs forth from it
Just like a little seed

For if we don't have rain,
How can our spirits grow
And flourish to produce
The crop that God has sowed?

So rain on us, dear God,
Draw us deep into your spring,
So our thirst can be satisfied
When we come and freely drink.

Philippians 4: 13

I have strength for all things
Through Christ who empowers me
I'm ready for anything that comes my way,
Even what I may not foresee
For it is Christ who infuses me,
Strengthening me in His might
And I am sufficient in His sufficiency
With the power of Christ inside.

Psalm 89:13-17

Mighty is your arm, O Lord,
Your hand, exalted and strong
Your righteousness and your justice
Are the foundation of your throne
Your mercy and loving-kindness
Go before your face
And blessed are the those who know you,
Who walk in your favour and grace
For in your name, they do rejoice,
Their horn is lifted high,
For you are the glory of their strength,
Their righteousness and their light.

Scripture Poetry by M.S. Lowndes

1 Peter 5:8-9

Be on your guard every day
Don't let your armour down
The enemy, the devil, is on the prowl
Like a fierce lion, he roams around
Always stand firm in the faith
Against Satan's fiery darts,
Don't let him have a foothold in
Or leave open the door of your heart
For we need to continually stand
Upon God's holy word
And not to give up on our faith
But remembering what we've heard
And all the while we remember
The same suffering comes to all
On our fellow sisters and brothers
For their faith in the Lord.

Scripture Poetry

Isaiah 43: 18-20

Do not earnestly remember
The former things of the past,
Neither consider the things of old,
Following the same old paths
Behold, I am doing a new thing,
Do you not see it, nor understand?
It springs forth as rivers flowing
Through a desert and barren land
It makes a way in the wilderness,
Refreshing those that honour me,
So do not be looking back on the past,
But look forward to what can be.

I Will Stand

When the enemy comes in
Like a flood to consume me,
You raise a standard against him
And give the victory
When you deliver me

Chorus:

By your love, and by your grace,
I will stand
The chains that bind fall away
And Iím safe in your hands
By your mercy, and on your word,
I will stand
My strength comes from you, O God
And Iím safe, so safe, in your hands

No weapon formed will prosper
No tongue shall condemn me
For my hope is in you, O Lord
And you give the victory
When you deliver me

(Repeat chorus)


Music & Lyrics © 2008 M.S.Lowndes

Based on Isaiah 59:19 & Isaiah 54:17

So shall they fear The name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him... No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me,Ē Says the LORD.

Friendship Duet

We meet new people every day;
Why we like some, who can say?
Maybe it's because they think like us;
It might be because they seldom fuss.

It's hard to know why closeness grows;
We like some better; that's how it goes.
I think you're special; Iím glad we met;
Let's keep having fun in our friendship duet.

What Is A Friend?

A friend is someone always there
in the back of your mind,
providing feelings of comfort and security.
A friend is someone
who adds happy sparkle to your life,
joy, fun, a predictable creator of happiness.
A friend is a stormproof shelter
from lifeís challenges, troubles, uncertainties,
an unassailable bond overcoming any challenge,
strengthening the connection in the process.
You are all this and more, my friend.
Thank you.

The Armor of God

Put on the armor of Almighty God,
so you can withstand Satanís schemes.
Our battle is not against flesh and blood;
no, things are not as they seem.

Our fight is against the powers of darkness,
with the forces of evil on high.
But He gave us His armor so we can stand firm,
on the Earth and in the sky.

Gird your loins with truth, which will always bear out,
the breastplate of righteousness wear.
Shod your feet with preparation of the gospel of peace;
take the shield of faith everywhere.

Take the helmet of salvation to wear on your head,
and the Spiritís sword in your hand.
And pray in the Spirit all of the time so
against Satanís plots you can stand.

More Than Ever

In todayís chaotic world,
With everything around us crumbling,
Morality held in contempt,
Our leaders false, corrupt, or bumbling,

More than ever, we need Christ
To lead us through this darkening place;
His absolute truth will light our way;
Heíll lift us with His love and grace.

The Bible is our cornerstone;
In Godís word, we take our stands;
Role models we will strive to be,
Examples of our Lordís commands.

Dear Lord Jesus, strengthen us
To complete the tasks youíd have us do;
We pray youíll lead us, guide us now
To know and love and follow you.

You are so welcome, ANNABELLE1957 happy you are being blessed and encouraged...

Youíre Always There for Me

When the world comes crashing in
And chaos rules my mind,
I turn my heart to you, Lord,
And pure, sweet peace I find.

You lift me out of trouble
You comfort me in pain;
You nourish, heal and cleanse me,
Like cool, refreshing rain.

In times of joy and bliss,
When things are going right,
You lift me even higher,
And fill me with delight.

You listen to my prayers;
You hear my every plea;
Iím safe because I know
Youíre always there for me.

The Power of Friends

Everyone knows of the power of friends,
The terrific result, when everything blends.
When people have friends, they donít stand alone;
Friends always help, when you face the unknown.

Friends give you courage to face problems untold,
So the love of a friend can help make you bold.
They can help you to live a much richer life,
So your every day living will be less filled with strife.

Thanks for being my friend!

Friendship

We grow closer to each other
When we're closer to the Lord,
The common faith that we share
Binds our hearts in one accord

For friendships last a life time
When built on Jesus Christ,
Throughout each different season,
We find we are in life

Friends are there through times of grief
And times when hope is gone,
Always there with encouragement
So we can carry on

So thank the Lord for giving you
A true and faithful friend,
To laugh with you, and cry with you,
On whom you can depend

For friends will stay no matter what,
Giving you support
And together your hearts truly unite
With the love of the Lord.

So your every day living will be less filled with strife.

Thanks for being my friend!

Good Morning, this is GOD I will be handling ALL your problems today.

Please remember ... I WILL NOT NEED YOUR HELP!!!

If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFGTD Box (something for God to do). It will be addressed in My time, not yours. Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it.

Holding on or removal will delay the resolution of your problem. If it is a situation that you think you are capable of handling, please consult me in prayer to be sure that it is the proper resolution.

If you find yourself stuck in traffic, don't despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

Should you have a bad day at work, think of the man who has been out of work for years.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad, think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

Should you grieve the passing of another weekend, think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.

Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance, think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror, think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose? Be thankful! There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities, remember ... things could be worse. You could be them!!!

Because I do not sleep nor do I slumber, there is no need for you to lose any sleep. Rest, my child.

If you need to contact me, I am only a prayer away.

Love Eternally, The Lord your God

The Beauty Within

The beauty we have
Is found within
And is more than a pretty face
It's the beauty of God
And is only found
In His love and transforming grace

The world only looks
At the outward shell
And not on what's there inside,
But God will reveal
The beauty within
As the beauty of Jesus Christ

Poem by Helen Steiner Rice

Never Borrow Sorrow from Tomorrow

Deal only with the present ó
never step into tomorrow,
For God asks us just to trust Him
and to never borrow sorrow,
For the future is not ours to know,
and it may never be,
So let us live and give our best
and give it lavishly. . .
For to meet tomorrowís troubles
before they are even ours
Is to anticipate the Savior
and to doubt His all-wise powers,
So let us be content to solve
our problems one by one,
Asking nothing of tomorrow
except ďThy will be done.Ē

The Seasons Of Life

Through the different seasons
In life that we go through,
God still walks there with us,
Through good and bad times too

We don't need to stop
And ponder why we're here,
We just need to trust in God
That He won't leave us there

It is but for a season
That we are in this place,
We need not sit and question it,
Just receive His loving grace

Don't look around at others,
They can't give you what you need
Just turn your eyes heavenward
And put your trust in thee

Hard times that you're facing,
The Lord will see you through
To bring you to a better place
That He has planned for you

We may only call on Him
When going through bad times,
But when things are going well,
He's seldom on our minds

For even in the good times,
We still need to look to Him,
So we don't become complacent
And let our love grow dim

So trust Him in the times ahead
Even when you do not know
That He is there beside you,
For He does love you so.

Isaiah 43: 18-20

Do not earnestly remember
The former things of the past,
Neither consider the things of old,
Following the same old paths
Behold, I am doing a new thing,
Do you not see it, nor understand?
It springs forth as rivers flowing
Through a desert and barren land
It makes a way in the wilderness,
Refreshing those that honour me,
So do not be looking back on the past,
But look forward to what can be.

Friendship

We grow closer to each other
When we're closer to the Lord,
The common faith that we share
Binds our hearts in one accord

For friendships last a life time
When built on Jesus Christ,
Throughout each different season,
We find we are in life

Friends are there through times of grief
And times when hope is gone,
Always there with encouragement
So we can carry on

So thank the Lord for giving you
A true and faithful friend,
To laugh with you, and cry with you,
On whom you can depend

For friends will stay no matter what,
Giving you support
And together your hearts truly unite
With the love of the Lord.

I Refuse to Be Discouraged

I refuse to be discouraged,
To be sad, or to cry;
I refuse to be downhearted,
And here's the reason why . . .
I have a God who's mighty,
Who's sovereign and supreme;
I have a God who love me,
And I am on His team.
He is all wise and powerful,
Jesus is His name;
Though everything is changeable,
My God remains the same.
My God knows all that's happening,
Beginning to end.
His presence is my comfort,
He is my dearest friend.

When sickness comes to weaken me,
To bring my head down low,
I call upon my mighty God;
Into His arms I go.
When circumstances threaten
To rob me from my peace,
He draws me close unto His breast,
Where all my strivings cease.
And when my heart melts within me,
And weakness takes control,
He gathers me into His arms,
He soothes my heart and soul.
The great "I AM" is with me,
My life is in His hands,
The "Son of the Lord" is my hope,
It's in His strength I stand.

I refuse to be defeated,
My eyes are on my God;
He has promised to be with me,
As through this life I trod.
I'm looking past all my circumstances,
To Heaven's throne above;
My prayers have reached the heart of God,
I'm resting in His love.
I give God thanks in everything,
My eyes are on his face;
The battle's His, the victory is mine;
He'll help me win the race.

1 Peter 5:8-9


Be on your guard every day
Don't let your armour down
The enemy, the devil, is on the prowl
Like a fierce lion, he roams around
Always stand firm in the faith
Against Satan's fiery darts,
Don't let him have a foothold in
Or leave open the door of your heart
For we need to continually stand
Upon God's holy word
And not to give up on our faith
But remembering what we've heard
And all the while we remember
The same suffering comes to all
On our fellow sisters and brothers
For their faith in the Lord.

Youíre Always There for Me

When the world comes crashing in
And chaos rules my mind,
I turn my heart to you, Lord,
And pure, sweet peace I find.

You lift me out of trouble
You comfort me in pain;
You nourish, heal and cleanse me,
Like cool, refreshing rain.

In times of joy and bliss,
When things are going right,
You lift me even higher,
And fill me with delight.

You listen to my prayers;
You hear my every plea;
Iím safe because I know
Youíre always there for me.

When We Face Rejections

Though we often face in life,
Rejections of every kind,
We need to know itís not the end
And to leave it all behind

And carry on with faith in God,
That He will see us through,
To fulfil what He has called us for,
The work we need to do

And sometimes these rejections,
Is a turning point in life
That lead to other avenues,
To bring our dreams alive

If we can only see this,
As a chance to expand our wings
And see thereís opportunity,
To fulfil our godly dreams

For God knows whatís best for us
And He will show the way,
We only need to trust in Him
And be on our knees each day

For He will bring it all to pass,
Releasing hope inside
As we keep walking with the Lord
And in His love abide.

Noah's Ark

Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark.


Don't miss the boat.


Remember that we are all in the same boat.


Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.


Stay fit. When you're 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.


Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.


Build your future on high ground.


For safety's sake, travel in pairs.


Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.


When you're stressed, float awhile.


Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.


No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.

God's Peace

Godís tender love and peace
Is what we all long for
In a world so hopelessly chaotic,
So unstable and unsure

It brings stability to our minds
And calmness to our souls,
For that is what we desperately need
As this world can be so cold

We need to have Godís peace
When turmoilís in our lives,
For Godís peace doesnít depend
On the daily pressures of life

When we have those stressful days,
Godís peace can often soothe
And bring us such a quiet hope
That chases away the blues

So when you feel the pressure on,
Remember Jesus Christ,
Receive from Him the peace He gives
As His daily dose for life!

Judith, I made the link clickable. That's a most beautiful song. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for that reminder that with God all things are possible.

Playing my sax is how I connect with God. That gift is from God and I use it to Glorify His name. It's not bout me..it's all about HIM.

Good Morning All

We all go through desert periods during our spiritual life, some call them dry periods, one thing for sure, God is with us through the plentiful times and through the difficult times,

I remember an old hymn, God Leads us Along. By George A Young that was shared to me as a young single parent when going through a difficult time in my life to bring encouragement my way by a very dear friend...

One final thought: Whatever we go through in our station of life we go through it covered by the Blood of the Lamb...

God Leads Us Along by George A Young

In shady, green pastures, so rich and so sweet,
God leads His dear children along;
Where the waterís cool flow bathes the weary oneís feet,
God leads His dear children along.

Refrain:

Some through the waters, some through the flood,
Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
In the night season and all the day long.

Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright,
God leads His dear children along;
Sometimes in the valley, in darkest of night,
God leads His dear children along.

Though sorrows befall us and evils oppose,
God leads His dear children along;
Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
God leads His dear children along.

Away from the mire, and away from the clay,
God leads His dear children along;
Away up in glory, eternityís day,
God leads His dear children along.

Here is the Link for the entire song by George A Young
