The words in this song, is getting me through such a rough season in my life right now. Sometimes when life is so full and busy with stressful events that we can't escape, he provides ways to heal our broken hearts one step at a time. Worship music and reading His word is providing me enough strength to start healing. Thank you my Father for loving me for who I am...
My daughter Emilee decided to plant sunflowers plants from seeds like her grammie does, wow what a beauties they are turning out to be.
I can not believe I haven't posted or blogged anything in months, but in these months I have been very sick and dealing with much. God has laid it on my heart to start blogging about what I have been dealing with and going through. Yes another "Season of Healing"! So please be sure to check back in for another post to come...thank you Lord for loving me for who I am.
My time with busy family schedule and sickness that has been going around my family as kept me way to busy and I forgot to post my memory scripture for Siesta 2011
Sing to the Lord, you saints of his; praise his holy name.
For his anger last only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime, weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Psalms 30: 4-5 (NIV)
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
James 1: 5 (NIV)
my prayer today is that you delight in the Lord during your day.
blessings, Peggy Lee
Morning everyone, wow my life has been so busy with family and school events that I haven't had a moment to post my 15th memory verse for Siesta's Memory Verse. Let's get right to it:
Memory Verse 2
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure, the peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. James 3:17-18 (NIV)
God is so good, with our busy life-an emotional roller coaster was upon us this past weekend, we took our oldest daughter Olivia to a college weekend trip. We are so excited she wants to attend a Christain College-Master's Program down in Portsmouth, NH. It was bittersweet for me as mom-my heart was full of so many emotions and thoughts of this is it in a few short months she will be leaving our nest Home a safe place to go explore her adventures.(God's plan for her.)
This momma is having issues with letting her baby go, as parents we all come this place and season in ours lives with our children. And all we can really do is teach them God's ways and pray for them. Thinking I better go buy some knee pads because I know I will be on my knees alot in prayer.
Olivia is one in glasses, here she is with best friend Beccy who is already attending the Master's Program. God is so good.
Reading from Psalms 139 today, as I sit and chat with you, I am also praying for you all. (this video is late going up I have been sick with a bad cold).
Psalms 139: 1-4
O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar
You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord.
God knows all our inward thoughts, our desires, fears and knows our actions. He knows all from when we wake until we sleep..wow He knows everything I do...(that will make you step back and listen) that's why everyday I must ask God to forgive me for anything that might keep me from is awesome love and goodness.
Remember God loves you and wants a relationship with you. Start today by taking 5 minutes of your time and talk with Him in prayer and read a scripture.
Here is my Siesta Scripture Memory Team Spiral Book-yes it's not Beth's beautiful Spiral, but this is what I will have to use this year...I did make it from my heart...I already wrote my first verse in it and I felt such a peace and joy as I read it over and over. God is so good.
That's right Beth Moore is starting the memory verse 24 in 12 months again, so I knew this would be perfect to go along with the study I am preparing for the blog. If you haven't heard or partaken in Beth's memory verse challenge I would strongly suggest you stop over to her blog and read up on it. I love to read the comments that others leave of their memory verse they chose. There is no memory verse that we all learn at the same time, it's ours from our hearts, souls, and minds...with God's leading we pick our own verse to memorize. This way it fits us and our season or circumstances we are going through in our lives. I find this is a great way to open my own personal morning studies with prayer and reading out loud my verse I chosen.
Here is my Verse #1 (1-1-11)
But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord,. Jeremiah 30:17a (NIV)
I am super excited about this memory verse challenge-here are just a few that Beth wrote in her blog and they touched my heart so I wanted to share them with you.
Beth's verse: All generous giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or the slightest hint of change. James 1:17 (the NET Bible)
You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. Psalms 65:11 (NIV)
"Forget about what's happened! Don't keep going over old history. Be alert! Be present! I'm about to do something brand new. It's bursting out. Don't you see it? There it is! I'm making a road in the desert and rivers in the badlands." Isaiah 43:18-19 (Message)
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NIV)
Father I pray right now that I will commit to this awesome challenge of memorizing your Word into my heart, soul and mind. I pray that who ever is listening and reading these words will feel moved to take upon themselves a memory verse challenge to. Thank you Lord for this verse you gave to me today, I do need to restore my health and my families health and I do need healing of some wounds that are open and bleeding of hurt. Thank you also for Beth Moore and her big heart. Amen.
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
