God is still doing great things!

I've been very bothered by many of the recent things that are happening in our world, especially this past month or so. It's hard to imagine that these events would come to light in the United States of America, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised in the Godless society which we have become.

Things such as legalizing same sex marriage, something that is totally against the Word of God and a President who celebrates that by turning our White House into the colors of gay pride, the rainbow, which really represents the covenant between man and God. That is turned into something worldly and unsightly. I almost threw up when I saw this one.

                  Our President had the audacity to turn the Peoples House, into a gay pride celebration.

Then, the glorification and celebration by much of our confused world of a man turning himself into a woman through surgery (Bruce Jenner into Caitlyn Jenner). He first received a Olympic medal and then years later, he received an award for courage for doing something insanely sick and much of the world, including some delusional Christians, are applauding him for being "himself."

The organization Planned Parenthood being caught on tape clearly speaking callously and nonchalantly about harvesting fetal body parts for sale during the abortion process, (can God forgive us for ending over 60 millions lives through abortion?) God help us when we can talk about the taking of human life in such a casual manner. Just watch below.

Plus the continued downward spiral of our government and their lack of concern for our citizens at home (the four Marines and a Navy Sailor just murdered right here at home by a Muslim extremist, yet our President refuses to acknowledge that we are at war against these lunatics) and abroad by our President turning this country's back on Israel (God's chosen nation) through this Iran nuclear deal just signed...What will happen to our nation now? The Bible is clear. Genesis 12:3 says "I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." Is God going to finally say enough with you America and finally turn his back on us?

It's all enough to send your head spinning. It seems that every day there is something new and it definitely seems like the world is falling apart and out of control. It's almost too much to take.

I throw my hands up and cry out to God. Where are you in all this Lord? I can't see you, Are you there??

Then I stop and seek His Face earnestly. I realize that in all this mess, He is there, just like He's always been. He knows exactly what is going to happen. It's all been preordained from the beginning of time and it will all turn out according to His purposes and plan. I just have to be quiet and Be Still and Know that He is God.

Then, just when you think you can't take anymore....Today, came the Sabbath, a definite God Day, was a day of revival, calming and peace. It turned everything around and put everything back into perspective..into God's perspective.

This morning we watched another uplifting service by Pastor John Hagee, live from Cornerstone Church in San Antonio Texas, with our dear friends Ted and Carol Smith, I was feeling inspired and encouraged. Just what I needed after a long, less than inspiring week of the world's problems. Pastor Hagee has a way of helping you realize that the God of the Universe is still in control, no matter what may be happening in Washington, DC. Thank you Lord for this respite from the worlds problems.

As I swam in the pool this afternoon with my sweet husband, we were listening to Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. We both had tears in our eyes as the songs played on from the Be Glad CD. This one song really got to me, as I thought about my life and all the great things that God has done for me over the years. the tears were streaming down my face. I realized something profound this afternoon.

He has always been by my side every step of the way. He has put people in my life at just the right time to meet the particular need I may be going through. He has surrounded me and my wonderful husband with so many people who have lifted us and our family up in prayer over the years. When I really stopped and thought about the way He has orchestrated my life and each event of my life, I was overwhelmed. And it's not over yet. Not until the day He calls me home.

Has it always been easy? No. I have had my share of hardships to endure, like this chronic, debilitating and progressive disease, multiple sclerosis, that I have been living with for over 25 years now. But, we all have hardships to go through. Life isn't easy for any of us, that is for sure. But, boy, it is so much easier when you have the Creator of the Universe handling the controls of your life.

How could I ever doubt anything He puts His Hand to? Why should I worry about one little thing when I know that each and everyday He makes the sun to rise and set. He makes the birds to chirp, the beautiful flowers to bloom and the He knows the names of each star in the sky. Psalm 147:4 tells us "He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name."

He is still there and He is still doing great things. You just need to be tuned into His frequency to see His wonders all around you. If you are worried about tomorrow. Don't! The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is still on the Throne. What we can do in the meantime, while we wait on the Lord and his perfect timing, is to pray. Turn your Face to His, Seek Him in everything and everything we become clear.

Pray for revival. Pray for our leaders. Pray for the lost souls who don't know Jesus. Everything is going to be ALL RIGHT. God has it all under control. Praise His Holy Name!

My verses for today are above in red.

My prayer for today:

Lord Jesus, Heavenly Father,

Why do I ever doubt? Help me Lord to give it all to you. Give you all my fears and anxieties because I know that you are in control of everything and everyone.You are a God of New Beginnings, and you are a God who does Great Things everyday for those who love you.

Help me to be a witness for your love. Help me to reach out to others in the darkness to show them the way. Help me to be the Light that you want me to be in this confused and dark world. Satan abounds here Lord, Help me to shine your beacon for others to see. Let me be your hands and feet on this earth.

Amen and Amen
