A hundred years may seem like a long time to us, but to the Lord, it's merely a dramatic pause. The Lord had told Abram what was coming long ...

    Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him. I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble.

    For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEB.We have a proverb we live by when performing live music: "If you hit a bad note, hit it good." Yes, it should be "hit it well," but that's the phrase I grew up hearing in South Caroli...

He Understands

  • Haven't you known? Haven't you heard? The everlasting God, Yahweh, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn't faint. He isn't weary. His understanding is unsearchable. Isaiah 40:28 WEB.

    It was a hot Saturday evening in the summer. I was exhausted and in a pretty bad mood by the time we got home. We had spent the whole day pulling some very aggravating network cables through the attic of our church. Then I came home to find an unexpected tax bill in the mailbox for five hundred dollars.

    I read over the letter and angrily said, "If we had spent the time working in our business that we have spent working at the church over the last month, we would have the money to pay this." Then tossed the bill on the table. That sounds harsh, but I wasn't feeling very godly at the time.

    When we went to church the following morning, one of the elders handed me an envelope. He said the church felt they should pay us something for all the work we had been doing recently. I knew before I opened it what was inside. It was a check for five hundred dollars. Without us mentioning the tax bill to anyone, God had told them the amount to give us and when we needed it.

    God understands. You can be honest with Him. He knows what you are going through. The temper tantrums we throw don't matter in the light of eternity. He knows what you have bottled up inside and why you act the way you do. So don't give up when you stumble. Get up and try it again.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I trust that You will take care of me. You know my needs before I ask, and I know that you are a rewarder of those that seek You. Please be with me this day and work Your perfect will in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Yes, I have learned to wait on God's timing...with much patience!

Slowly but surely, I am seeing signs that He is helping me with my prayers.

I thank God for my 3 daughters even though I don't see them.  I thank God for helping my brother find me this home to live.  I thank God for sending me a new Christian partner for life, Philip.  In Jesus' name, Amen

I came here to Quinlan, Texas in August 2019.  I found a church home in January 2020 and joined.  I went 3 times and then the pandemic started.  If I had been living on my own, I may not have survived the pandemic.  God helped me to be Covid negative with 2 vaccines.  In December 2020, I met Philip during a Christmas concert.  i will be getting an engagement ring with a diamond soon, I hope.

Thanks RHM for accepting me as a member at RHM.!!!
