Thank God; for another opportunity

Thank God; for another opportunity

To praise Him!

Psalm 39:4: LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.

We really are frail.

Psalm 90:10: The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

Psalm 90:12: So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Hebrews 2:6: But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Luke 12:7: But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

When God; allows; me another opportunity to wake up. I feel as though; He is saying to me, continue on in (Him)

I conclude; if God did not want me here. I would have been long gone.

When; I say “God is first” in my life; I mean that in every aspect of my life.

The Lord was gracious enough to me to have children; marry. Raise them. My first husband has passed away. I say that; because, I do not believe that God is finished with me as of yet.

Even in my desires; I am sure that my desires; line up with His Will.

One of the things that I have learned on this journey is; God’s Will; must be done God’s Way and in His Time; He will make everything beautiful.

This is what I get from:

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.

When; I am in need of assistance. Just know; if I ever ask you for anything. Whether it is; my family or it is my friends. I have consulted the Lord first.

I know God will; work things out.

At one time; I was too independent.

The Lord allowed me to be in a position; where I had to go to Him.

Please don’t misunderstand me; I am by no means complaining.

It has been a challenge for me to learn to ask; at 50 years of age.

Before; I felt; if I needed something. I will work and get it. Being on the same job; for over 19+ years; was a help to me.

Our jobs are not our source.

God let me know; I needed to ask and depend on Him.

There can be a huge different in a need and a want.

Trust me!

If I desire something that I do not have at the current time; there is something out of line in the equation.

I just look; at the equation.

God’s Will + done Gods Way + God’s Time = a Blessing.

If either of these do not line up; something is off.

I have acquired; a great amount of patience, oh; I yet have a long way to go.

From where; I started from; it has been nothing short of a miracle.

There are times; I have to tell Barbara; to calm down and relax.

I was a person that believed; now is the time to act.

I did not realize that; until I had retired; from the job and was instructed him to do something; he turned to me and said “Mama, you are not still working”

I was accustomed to people moving; when I spoke. (Smile)

I am not and will not be in control of everything, (Newsflash! Barbara)

Now; I just settle myself down and wait on God.

When everything lines up; it works out for the good

I’m telling you;

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.

Changed my life;

This released me; from anger; etc.

Now; if something doesn’t happen the way; I expect.

I know that something in the equation is off.

So; for instance; if it is something; I desire.

It is either not God’s time;

Or; it is not God’s Will

Or it is not God’s Way. (His best for me)

Matthew 7:11: If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

I have committed, submitted and surrendered my will to His perfect will.

I have not been disappointed.

When I think of just some of the things the Lord has saved me from; I began to rejoice.

You don’t really hear me!

I have choices; I choose Jesus!

I choose to show Him; my love and appreciation; by obeying His Word!
