The Promises of the Lord

Well, have we all survived the first 8 days of 2014?  I can tell you that God is an amazing God who really just keeps on giving us His children all the love and joy from His heart.  I am so amazed at how much the Lord welcomes me and loves me home no matter the mistake that I make.  I am so amazed by His never failing promises of life and joy and freedom.

I don’t make new years resolutions because a resolution is meant to get broken so I just keep on keeping on. I have desires to continue to a) loose more weight this year than I did in 2013. b)stay healthy, c) go so much deeper with the Lord that I will be able to see Him not so much in the rear view mirror but also to really gut wrenching deeply know that He is with me in the front mirror as well. I want to experience joy in 2014 that I have never experienced and I want to experience nothing short of glorious worship. I want to worship the Lord my God with all my heart, my mind, and my soul, and I want to take as many folks with me in worship as I can. But more than anything this is where I want to be in 2014 at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end going into 2015.

If I can trust one spoken declaration of God, I can trust them all! I am a new creation. He says I am forgiven. He says I am His child. He says His Word holds power over my sin. He says that I am the apple of His eye. He says He is coming back for me. Now, I need to walk in all of these because they are a certainty. They are truth statements of who God is. The question is NOT can I be transformed the question is does God do what He says? And according to Phil. 1:6 “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” And according to Psalms 138:1-3
“I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart; I will sing your praises before the gods. 2 I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed by all the honor of your name. 3 As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength.”

So, if He says that He will transform me than yes I will be transformed! This is my prayer for 2014 that I will continue to confirm the promises of my Father.  No matter what 2014 brings I am standing on the promises of God, Yahweh, Father, Son, Holy Spirit, Adonai, Jehovah.  Whatever name He is producing today I will be standing on His promises because His word is His bond and He will not fail me.

I am a flawed Christian who loves Jesus more than anything. Originally from the east coast of the US (Philadelphia, Pa). Currently living in Az. I am a single female who has no children. I do have a bunch of nieces and nephews. I do love to dance, swim, sing, travel, and play. I love dogs and am allergic to cats an sulfa. I don't drink or do street drugs or abuse prescription drugs. I love the USA and am ashamed of some of the folks that are running the show in DC (both parties). Personally, I don't think that our founding fathers intended for the service of our members of congress was supposed to be a life long job. I think that they meant for it to be short term. I love all kinds of movies but classics are becoming my favorite more and more. I do not like much of what is on television today because the world of make believe "reality tv" is unreal, and the rest well I just don't like the animation programs either. I love Jesus and try to serve Him with all I am becoming more an more like Him daily. I may stumble and I may make a mistake but I can always count on the loving arms of my Jesus and my Heavenly Father to come pick me up again and help me stand. I am not afraid of trying or failing but I am afraid of bragging and doing it on my own. I try to love all people and help all people (sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't). But even in that God is my all an all. That is who I am. Nothing more and nothing less. What you see is what you get. Like I said at the beginning I am flawed. I am human, and while I am not sinless I am able to sin less and help others to learn how to sin less. God is good. I hope that you enjoy reading the things that I write.
