September 11th

On the radio this morning, they shared stories of people who were supposed to be in the twin towers on the floors where the planes hit on September 11th, but didn't make it into work. One woman got stuck in traffic, so she was late. For another man, it was his day to stop and pickup doughnuts for the office, Another woman's alarm did not go off. A man put on a brand new pair of shoes, and stopped by the store to pick up a bandaid because he was forming a blister. Another woman spilled food on her clothes and had to go back home to change.

So the next time your day doesn't start out quite right, just remember that you are exactly where God wants you to be. He just might have a reason for interrupting your morning.

He Knows

Check out this video of Indiana Bible College singing the song, "He Knows". The girl singing the song wrote this song about 3 days before her father died unexpectedly. God knew what she was about to go through and gave her the song just in time! If you are going through a difficult time right now, you are not alone. God has not forgotten about you. He is right there with you and knows exactly what you are going through. Put your trust in Him, and He will carry you through this. He promises He will in His Word.

"The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;He delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
Psalm 34:17-18

God is Everything You Need

You'll probably see a lot of Beth Moore material on this blog. I absolutely love Beth Moore! Here is another recent commissioning she gave at a conference in Rhode Island...

My Dear Sister
God’s Divine Power
Has given you everything you need
To do life and to do it His way
God has given you
Great and precious promises
Start believing them
And acting on them
When circumstances overwhelm you
Or people annoy you
Turn your faith into action
Dispatch what you need
From the holding tank of the Holy Spirit
And God will blow your mind
With what He can do through you
Never ever forget
You have been cleansed from past sins
Go FREE from this place
And live on purpose
Pour out your life for others
Then one day
When you close your eyes on earth
You will open them and see Jesus
And with arms full of riches
He’ll say, “Welcome Home!”
“Aren’t you beautiful!”
Now, go out into this world
And live like crazy!
Because your God
Is everything you need!
