God is More Than Enough!

Mark 8:19-20 says, "When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.  And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up ? And they said, Seven."

The other day, it hit me!  I was not and am not enough in the life of my lost loved one!!  Then it hit me even stronger:  but God is!!!  He is enough!  He is more than enough!!

I sometimes (really, quite often) question whether I have been enough, said enough, or done enough.  The answer is:  probably not!!  But then, I don't have to be enough.  God is enough. 

In the verses above, Jesus is reminding His disciples of two miracles.  Each time, He took a little bread and a little bit of fish and fed multitudes with full baskets left over!  He was more than enough to those hungry people, and He is more than enough for my lost loved one!! 

I am one grateful lady that I serve a God like that!!

God Receives my Prayers!!

Psalm 66:20 says, "Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me."   He does not reject my prayers, and has not withheld mercy, and that is reason to SHOUT!!!

God's Daughter

As I have blogged before, I "read the red" morning and night on most days.  The last few days, I have been in Mark 5.  I came to these sentences of Jesus: 

1. "Who touched my clothes?" (verse 30)  I wanted to scream, ME!!!"

2. "Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague" (verse 34).  I want to say, "Deal!!!"  Although my "plague" is not physical, I believe my life will be whole again, in full fellowship with my lost.

3. "Be not afraid, only believe" (verse 36).  Again, I want to scream, "Deal!!!"

These are powerful words! 

I am touching  His clothes in behalf of my lost loved one!!   Apparently, virtue is going from Him to minister to that person!!  I also receive the other two verses, too!!  They have really ministered to me!!   I will not fear, but ONLY believe!!  What an "only!"

Bless the Name of the LORD!!!!

God revealed something to me about Esther.

God made her beautiful for a reason:  to get her into the palace (to fulfill His plan for and keep His promises to His people)!  God made her content for a reason:  to give her favor before the king (to fulfill His plan and keep His promises to His people).  God helped her trust Him for a reason:  so she could call a fast and pray (to fulfill His plan and keep His promises to His people).  God made her confident for a reason:  to give her boldness to go before the king unbidden (to fulfill His plan and keep His promises for His people).  God made her wise for a reason:  so she would know what to say to the king (to fulfill His plan and keep His promises to His people).

God made us all beautiful in such a way that He could use us to fulfill His purposes and to keep His promises to His people.  Will you fulfill your God-given purposes?

"Let us pass over unto the other side."

I may have used this verse before, but I came across it again yesterday in my "Reading the red."  In this statement of Jesus is so much promise.  When He said this, the disciples should have banked on making it to the other side!  However, a storm came up, and Jesus said, "Peace, be still."  The storm obeyed and ceased!!  

When the Lord has promised my loved one's salvation, I can trust that we will make it to the other side of this.  And soon, I am expecting the LORD to say, "Peace, be still!"  I can hardly wait!!
