Yepper, I am thinking about God today...how wonderful, powerful, loving, and forgiving He is!!

I love that song by Chris Tomlin...and just about anything that is played on KLove.

With Mother's Day being tomorrow, I am also thinking about Mary.

I am so thankful that she accepted God's call on her life.


Luke 1:26-38

26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth's pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee,

27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary.

28 The angel went to her and said, ``Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.''

29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.

30 But the angel said to her, ``Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.

31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.

32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,

33 and he will reign over Jacob's descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.''

34 ``How will this be,'' Mary asked the angel, ``since I am a virgin?''

35 The angel answered, ``The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.

36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month.

37 For no word from God will ever fail.''

38 ``I am the Lord's servant,'' Mary answered. ``May your word to me be fulfilled.'' Then the angel left her.

Good point! I never thought about Mary on Mother's day. It just goes to show how important God thinks mother's are.

Chris Tomlin is good. Like that song Lymetoo.
Dekrator, that is beautiful for Mother's day.

Helplessness is really dragging me down. [Frown] An oldie.

Leaning on
Psalm 34:7

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.


Hebrews 4:16

Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.


1 Peter 5:6-9

6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.

7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

--------------------
2 Corinthians 12:9-11


9 But he said to me, �My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.� Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ�s power may rest on me.

I've been having some rough days lately and today after choir as we were going to eat out, I saw this verse on the back of a truck window:

``Be still, and know that I am God"
Psalm 46:10

It was displayed big and bold! Thank you, God! [Smile]

It is a verse I have on my wall and a favorite of my husband's grandmother. She's been gone awhile so it made me think of her today.

Thought I would pop in before I forgot my pass word. [Big Grin]

Pocono...your song brought a tear to my eye. Lord Jesus is with you and hears your cry. Patience dear, in His time. May you receive peace as you wait patiently for His answer to your call. May Lord Jesus give you mercy and understanding. Hugs, dear one.

Where would we be without Godly mothers? Moses had two, a biological and an adopted mom. Each gave her best. There was Naomi. Ruth was not her child, but Naomi interrupted her own grief to share her hard-won wisdom until Ruth could become a mother herself.

There's Mary, Jesus' mother. In her defining moment, she responded to the angel, "Let it be unto me, according to thy word." No wonder at her son's defining moment He echoes that phrase, "Not my will, but thy will be done." Thank God for mothers who enfold children and grandchildren and other people's children in love, wisdom and the life-sustaining stories of God's grace.

Thank God for those mothers "we love but see no longer," mothers who live with God now, and as Lord Jesus watches over us from heaven's balcony may He offers us peace as we miss our beloved mothers.

To all the mothers, we your children "...rise and call you blessed." Proverbs 31:28

--------------------
God's promises mean you always have something wonderful to look forward to.

Thanks for the verses on Mary, Dekrator!

Pocono... Jim Reeves was a great singer! Love that song too!

The verse about "Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour" is in our bulletin every week. I'll print it out tomorrow here. I forget how it's worded. I think it's in our closing. A good reminder!

Lymetoo... It warms my heart when I see or hear God being present in one's life. Especially young people.

It seems when we're down, something happens to bring us back up. No coincidence!!!

MDW...You are that happening for me. I haven't seen you in quite a while and have missed your posts. And here you are!

You brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.
I needed the reminder that Jesus is with me. He's taught me patience but I am so tired, weak and worn.

I really needed the hugs. [group hug]
umm If you use your password more often, you're less likely to forget it. [Big Grin]

I didn't think of Moses' two mothers, nor put Ruth and Naomi into that perspective either. Both are great examples.

I had a card that I kept at my computer that said "When you're down, Look UP" I sent it to an old friend in an attempt to encourage her.

Good night my brothers and sisters in Christ.
God bless you all.

Will be looking for your print out tomorrow Lymetoo.

Awe Pocono, you bless me with your warmth and gentle words. I to have missed my God Thought family. I posted a wee on FB this day and thought I would share with you, dear one.


I sometimes think hope is a very misunderstood virtue. Many people think you should have hope because, even when things get real bad, God can make them better. I actually don't think this is what hope is all about.

I believe that God is aways with us - with us in suffering, darkness, pain, loss and death. I have hope, not because somehow God might take away all the death and pain. No, I have hope because God abides with us even in the times of our greatest darkness and deepest loneliness. I have hope because I know, come what may, I am never abandoned by the God in whom we live and move and have our being.

If I find when I am walking along the path and view a dried up tree standing - even if only one branch is dead, I smile and whisper to it, "God is with you." Let's call it the tree of hope.

Isaiah: 41
When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst,I the Lord will answer them. I will make the wilderness a pool of water,and the dry land springs of water.

Pocono, as Lymetoo posted... "Be still and know that He is God." There is no such thing as helplessness when we reach our arms out to Him, Lord Jesus' arm is much longer than ours and will meet you way past the half way mark. [Wink] You rest well and may tomorrow be brighter for you as you have a healing rest this night, May Lord Jesus comfort you with His almighty blanket of love.

--------------------
God's promises mean you always have something wonderful to look forward to.

Silverwolf... My mum was not a praying woman, but my grandmum was. I think she must have prayed for me in all her living years. My mum passed away March 25th of this year and is in heaven with the Lord. She accepted Jesus during the time that I spent caring for her. One day I will see her once again. My sister went to Missouri to spend time with her for Mother's Day, as it is her first and my first year of not being able to hear her voice and feel her smile as we did not forget her special day.
My sister did post a poster on FB before she left and it read something like this:

The hardest thing in life to bear is to want your mom and she is not there. So forgive me Lord if we still weep for a mom we love and long to keep. The sorrow we feel I cannot explain....etc. etc. etc.

If not for Daisy, Payne, Lymetoo, and Dekrator...I would not be in the Spirit as I am today. The supportive love of brothers and sisters in Christ and the grace and love of Jesus is a beautiful blessing to receive.

Good night my dear family. [group hug]

MDW... When reading what you wrote on fb, Daniel in the lion's den came to mind and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace.

This song also came to mind.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRn7gpxUSg4

Jesus did hear my cries as I'm feeling more at peace today. Thank you Jesus.

MDW.. Your loss was so recent. Knowing we'll be with our loved ones is such comfort. So wonderful she accepted Jesus!
Matthew 5:4
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

My dad died when I was a kid. 1978.
My mom died last April.

Lymetoo's post "Be still and know that He is God" did sink in. Finally! [Smile] One of the services I watch/listen to daily has this monthly theme. Keep Calm and Carry On.


Being homebound, I am blessed to have all of you to share the Word of God. Have a blessed day brothers and sisters while remembering all mothers.

On earth and those in heaven with our Father.


We trust in Jesus for eternity, we must trust Him for today...

I am blessed by all that my God Thought Friends shared.

I am so thankful for all of you dear friends.

Someday we will all be together in Heaven and we will have lots to talk about in person....no typing required!

Philipians 2:1-2

1 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,

2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.

Philipians 4:4-9

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.

9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me--put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Mary, Mother of Our Savior..
We saw what the cross did with Jesus..
did we think of what Mary felt,
How Crushing,
Her heart must have all but burst...
then to see the Stone Moved,
Her Son riseing to the Word..
Mary must have felt my son,
My Son the SAVIOR....THE KING of kings !
Mary has always held a special place in my faith,
actually calling on Her.
