I am waiting rather impatiently for the "new thing" God has planned!! (Isaiah 43:19 says, "Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert."
He is probably already holding back the waters to let us get to the new thing!!! (Joshua 3:15, 16a, 17b says, "and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap . . . and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan."
Our part is to sanctify ourselves, become set apart for use by God, prepare ourselves, get ready!  (Joshua 3:5 says, "And Joshua said to the people, 'Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.'"
(Thanks, Pastor McGlammery, for such inspiring messages that provide raindrops for my faith!!)

I am so excited about this raindrop!!! 

In the mornings and before I go to bed at night, I read words of Jesus.  Last night, I read Matthew 24:35, where He said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."  (This is a very good reason to read the words of Jesus everyday, wouldn't you say?  Thanks for the idea, Pastor James Bond!)  This verse meant so much to me that I decided to keep that marked as my place so that I could read it again this morning!  You see?  God has promised me some things, and I do not intend to give up until they are realized!!!

Then, when I logged onto Facebook, my friend, Betsey Brisson had posted Acts 27:25: 
"Therefore take heart, men, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me."
I DO, TOO!!  

Last night, Evangelist Jonathan Zieglar preached that it is dangerous to give up, that it is dangerous to not believe God for Who He is and what He says!!  I do NOT intend to give up, but I intend to have faith that what God says, He will do, that His words will NOT pass away, even after heaven and earth pass away, that it will be just as the Word says it will be, that His promises to me are true!!! 

(See how God works things when He wants us to know something?  Thank You, LORD!!!)

What has God promised you?  Hang on!  Go after it!!  Do not give up!!!

I am sorry I have not posted in a while.  There have been so many ups lately!! 

One is this song:

Another is:  my husband got a new job that he loves.  Through all the ups and downs the last year, our God has remained faithful to us and has proven Himself our Jehovah Jireh, The LORD Who Sees and Provides, and as our Jehovah Shalom, The LORD our Peace."  He has been amazing, "a very present help in trouble."  (Psalm 46:1)

Another is just knowing that what God promised, He will do!!  I am reminded of this over and over.  The song linked above says, "Jesus made a way where there was no way," and He does!!!

The Word tells us in 1 Kings 8:56, "Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised:  there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant."  Psalm 89:34 makes it a little more inclusive:  "My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips."  There hasn't failed one promise that has passed God's lips, period!!!

I may have shared these before, but hang onto these promises.  They will get you through many an attack on your faith!!!

I feel like praising!!!!

A friend had a dream.

In this dream, two people were lost in the forest where it was dark.  People outside the forest were in a beautiful light.  They looked and looked for the lost people.  Finally, the lost walked out of the woods and were so happy to be in the light and to be found!!! 

This friend recognized one of the people as a lost loved one, but the other was a little elusive.  When this friend awakened and the characteristics were considered, the other "found" person was my lost loved one!!! 

This was a definite raindrop, a reminder of promises that will be fulfilled!

"Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost."  (Romans 15:13)

Good stuff!!  There is joy and peace in believing, in believing what God says!!  This results in abounding hope!!!

Good stuff!!
