Lest; I forget!

I will not complain!

Maybe; this limp serves as a reminder: of what God has done for me.

I’ve gotten over those tears.

I now have tears of joy! People just don’t understand; people have died with less than the things I have been through.

I am a walking talking Testimony of God’s goodness.

There use to be a song; that we sang in church.

“Lord, I’ll never forget; what you have done for me.”

Lord; I’ll never forget how you set me free; Lord; I’ll never forget how you brought me out.

Lord; I’ll never forget no never.

Something like that. (Smile)

God has been entirely toooooooooooooooo good to me; to be anything but grateful.

I was thinking today; thank God; I have a choice.

I choose not to get angry.

Ooh; I can still get angry.

I just choose; what I get angry over.

I/You only live once.

I just do not believe; that God suffered and died; for me to have a temper tantrum; over anything!

I have really accepted; God’s will, God’s way, and in God’s time.

Ecclesiastes 3:11: He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

This is so fitting for me.

It goes along with my Testimony!

“But God”

As bad as I see the world getting; I’m not in a rush to leave.

God’s will, God’s way and in God’s time.

I have not completed my assignment; yet.

My life is not over; until God says so.

Joshua 1:8: This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Joshua 1:9: Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Deuteronomy 28:1: And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:

Deuteronomy 28:2: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

Deuteronomy 28:14: And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

When; I say “I trust God”; I must put my faith; where my mouth is.

Note: Maybe; I should say “My mouth and my Heart needs to line up; with the my faith; and where is my faith? In God!

Mark 11:22: And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
Faith; believes God; when the circumstances do not add up.

When; God adds…

Matthew 19:6: Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Romans 4:17: (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

God has a Math all His own!

Deuteronomy 2:3: Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.

I’ve come to encourage you!

Do you feel; that you have been in that situation long enough?

Are you T I R E D?

Are you worn out?

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?

Do you feel; like God does not even; know you are there going through all you are going through?

Are the abundance of bills and the lack of cash getting you down?

Are you trying your best?

Do you feel forgotten and all alone?

Are you doing everything right; that you know to do?

Don’t give up! Don’t quit!

Don’t through in the towel!

Deuteronomy 1:2: (There are eleven days’ journey from Horeb by the way of mount Seir unto Kadesh-barnea.)

Deuteronomy 1:12: How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden, and your strife?

Deuteronomy 1:22: And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come.

Deuteronomy 1:32: Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God,

Deuteronomy 1:42: And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them, Go not up, neither fight; for I am not among you; lest ye be smitten before your enemies.

Deuteronomy 2:1: Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea, as the LORD spake unto me: and we compassed mount Seir many days.

Deuteronomy 2:2: And the LORD spake unto me, saying,

Deuteronomy 2:3: Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.

I’m not a biblical scholar; I’m just me! (Smile).

It took 40 years; to make a 11 day journey! Now; that is reason enough to be tired.

And on top of that; the people Moses was leading:

Exodus 32:7: And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

Exodus 32:8: They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

Exodus 32:9: And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

Rest assured; God knows; He hears and He sees; YOU.

It can be difficult to try and lead your own family; let alone a group of God’s people!

Just know; God would not have given you the Job; if He did not know; that YOU could handle it!

Just from what I have seen!

God’s people can be the most loving; caring wonderful people.

Anyone would ever; want to be involved with.

As long as; God is leading them/us! (Smile)

My heart goes out to Moses!

Realize; that it was God; that declared it is a “stiffnecked” people; and you do know that God loves His children.

I just believe God was saying; enough is enough!

When God speaks; things will change.

Hold onto God; your/my change is coming.

Sometimes; we have to be like David!

1 Samuel 30:6: And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.

Per Barbara; do what you have to do legally and morally until your change comes.

Quitting is not an option. Regardless; of what you are going through.

I do not know what it is; God does!

I may as well continue to praise and thank God; for what I know He will do!

Be encouraged!

“What are the different names of God and what do they mean?”


Answer: Each of the many names of God describes a different aspect of His many-faceted character. Here are some of the better-known names of God in the Bible:

EL, ELOAH: God “mighty, strong, prominent” (Genesis 7:1; Isaiah 9:6) – etymologically, El appears to mean “power,” as in “I have the power to harm you” (Genesis 31:29). El is associated with other qualities, such as integrity (Numbers 23:19), jealousy (Deuteronomy 5:9), and compassion (Nehemiah 9:31), but the root idea of might remains.

ELOHIM: God “Creator, Mighty and Strong” (Genesis 17:7; Jeremiah 31:33) – the plural form of Eloah, which accommodates the doctrine of the Trinity. From the Bible’s first sentence, the superlative nature of God’s power is evident as God (Elohim) speaks the world into existence (Genesis 1:1).

EL SHADDAI: “God Almighty,” “The Mighty One of Jacob” (Genesis 49:24; Psalm 132:2, 5) – speaks to God’s ultimate power over all.

ADONAI: “Lord” (Genesis 15:2; Judges 6:15) – used in place of YHWH, which was thought by the Jews to be too sacred to be uttered by sinful men. In the Old Testament, YHWH is more often used in God’s dealings with His people, while Adonai is used more when He deals with the Gentiles.

YHWH / YAHWEH / JEHOVAH: “LORD” (Deuteronomy 6:4; Daniel 9:14) – strictly speaking, the only proper name for God. Translated in English Bibles “LORD” (all capitals) to distinguish it from Adonai, “Lord.” The revelation of the name is first given to Moses “I Am who I Am” (Exodus 3:14). This name specifies an immediacy, a presence. Yahweh is present, accessible, near to those who call on Him for deliverance (Psalm 107:13), forgiveness (Psalm 25:11) and guidance (Psalm 31:3).

YAHWEH-JIREH: “The Lord Will Provide” (Genesis 22:14) – the name memorialized by Abraham when God provided the ram to be sacrificed in place of Isaac.

YAHWEH-RAPHA: “The Lord Who Heals” (Exodus 15:26) – “I am Jehovah who heals you” both in body and soul. In body, by preserving from and curing diseases, and in soul, by pardoning iniquities.

YAHWEH-NISSI: “The Lord Our Banner” (Exodus 17:15), where banner is understood to be a rallying place. This name commemorates the desert victory over the Amalekites in Exodus 17.

YAHWEH-M’KADDESH: “The Lord Who Sanctifies, Makes Holy” (Leviticus 20:8; Ezekiel 37:28) – God makes it clear that He alone, not the law, can cleanse His people and make them holy.

YAHWEH-SHALOM: “The Lord Our Peace” (Judges 6:24) – the name given by Gideon to the altar he built after the Angel of the Lord assured him he would not die as he thought he would after seeing Him.

YAHWEH-ELOHIM: “LORD God” (Genesis 2:4; Psalm 59:5) – a combination of God’s unique name YHWH and the generic “Lord,” signifying that He is the Lord of Lords.

YAHWEH-TSIDKENU: “The Lord Our Righteousness” (Jeremiah 33:16) – As with YHWH-M’Kaddesh, it is God alone who provides righteousness to man, ultimately in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, who became sin for us “that we might become the Righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

YAHWEH-ROHI: “The Lord Our Shepherd” (Psalm 23:1) – After David pondered his relationship as a shepherd to his sheep, he realized that was exactly the relationship God had with him, and so he declares, “Yahweh-Rohi is my Shepherd. I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1).

YAHWEH-SHAMMAH: “The Lord Is There” (Ezekiel 48:35) – the name ascribed to Jerusalem and the Temple there, indicating that the once-departed glory of the Lord (Ezekiel 8—11) had returned (Ezekiel 44:1-4).

YAHWEH-SABAOTH: “The Lord of Hosts” (Isaiah 1:24; Psalm 46:7) – Hosts means “hordes,” both of angels and of men. He is Lord of the host of heaven and of the inhabitants of the earth, of Jews and Gentiles, of rich and poor, master and slave. The name is expressive of the majesty, power, and authority of God and shows that He is able to accomplish what He determines to do.

EL ELYON: “Most High” (Deuteronomy 26:19) – derived from the Hebrew root for “go up” or “ascend,” so the implication is of that which is the very highest. El Elyon denotes exaltation and speaks of absolute right to lordship.

EL ROI: “God of Seeing” (Genesis 16:13) – the name ascribed to God by Hagar, alone and desperate in the wilderness after being driven out by Sarah (Genesis 16:1-14). When Hagar met the Angel of the Lord, she realized she had seen God Himself in a theophany. She also realized that El Roi saw her in her distress and testified that He is a God who lives and sees all.

EL-OLAM: “Everlasting God” (Psalm 90:1-3) – God’s nature is without beginning or end, free from all constraints of time, and He contains within Himself the very cause of time itself. “From everlasting to everlasting, You are God.”

EL-GIBHOR: “Mighty God” (Isaiah 9:6) – the name describing the Messiah, Christ Jesus, in this prophetic portion of Isaiah. As a powerful and mighty warrior, the Messiah, the Mighty God, will accomplish the destruction of God’s enemies and rule with a rod of iron (Revelation 19:15).

I Won’t Complain!

If we choose; there will always be something to complain about.

It is our choice; whether to complain or not.

When you do choose to complain; does it solve anything?

My relationship; with God is of such; I can go to Him about anything.

I mean; anything.

I believe; I should be respectful to anyone I talk to.

How I say anything is important. I am mindful; to remember; who I am talking to. I learned that as a child.

There are some things that will remain between God and me.

There is an advertisement about some movie is states “You can’t handle the truth”.

God can; handle; anything my brain can come up with.

I can go to God; and just be me.

My mother use to say “Don’t get the taste slapped out of my mouth.”

I can go to God; if I m angry; hurt; happy or sad.

I had someone say that they didn’t want to tell God how they were feeling.

I could not understand that. I just believe that God already knows; he is just waiting for us to admit and come to Him; so together we can work it out.

I choose not to hold onto things or try to hold on to people anymore. That is just me.

I don’t need to try and hold onto something that is already mine.

As long as I treat it the way I should; it will last. It is when I get careless and non-shalant that I lose things and people.

The things or people that choose to go away; and I haven’t done anything to them and they haven’t told me anything. It must be time for them to go.

Now; back to my original point!

I was reading about Moses: going up to die.

Deuteronomy 31:14: And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thy days approach that thou must die: call Joshua, and present yourselves in the tabernacle of the congregation, that I may give him a charge.  And Moses and Joshua went, and presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation.

Deuteronomy 31:15: And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle.

Deuteronomy 31:16: And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.

Deuteronomy 32:48: And the LORD spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying

Deuteronomy 32:49: Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:

Deuteronomy 32:50: And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people:

Deuteronomy 32:51: Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel.

Deuteronomy 32:52: Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.

I do not see in the scriptures; where Moses complained; got angry; etc.

Number 12:3: (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)

Deuteronomy 34:7: And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

I can’t speak for anyone else; God has been so gracious and merciful to me; I dare not complain.

Oh; I have in my younger years; when I look back I have to “Repent.”

God has shown me personally; so much Grace; Mercy, Compassion, etc.

I would be “Ashamed of myself” to utter a complaint.

That does not mean that I have not been challenged and that the enemy has not tried.

I have chosen Jesus’ way anyway.

In spite of; the situations and circumstances; that is going on in my life at any given time.

I have learned more in the dark with the Lord; than at any other time of this journey.

I tell you it as if the Lord and I have been on the backside of the dessert; I’m ready to tell it on the housetop.

Matthew10:27: What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

To live; for the Lord; and then go and rest in the Lord for eternity!

My God! My God! My God!

Yes; I read about the dispute; about Moses body.

“But God”

Better yet; per Sister Barbara Fisher “But my God!”

I have never known a love like this!

Note: James:4:10: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

I just believe that I can humbly go to the Lord at anytime and ask for His guidance.
