Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!
This morning the half moon was visible in a clear sky, so it looks like no rain today.
Because we have a boy with a sore sunburn, we did not go to the Park yesterday, but he is healing and should be able to wear a shirt today. Instead, we made and baked cookies, which was fun.
From The Promise Bible:
What do I do when problems overwhelm me?
"The Lord is my light and my salvation-so why should I be afraid? The Lord protects me from danger-so why should I tremble?"
Problems can turn our eyes from the Lord. Use them instead, as opportunities to turn our eyes to the Lord for his protection, his guiding light, and his saving power.
Psalm 145:14 "The Lord helps the fallen and lifts up those bent beneath their loads."
God finds the fallen and never passes them by. When we feel we can't go another step, he shoulders our loads, easing our pain and burdens.
Psalm 42:5-6 "Why am I discouraged? Why so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again-my Savior and my God! Now I am deeply discouraged , but I will remember your kindness -from Mt. Hermon, the souirce of the Jordan, from the land of Mount Mizar God's Mercy. "
He has been faithful in the past and will be faithful in the future. Memory ignites the fire of hope and drives away the darkness of despair.
I always give thanks for you remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
Amaryllis (15 and counting)
