Ain't God good? Oh, yes HE is!!!

Are you sometimes just overwhelmed with God's goodness?
Yeah....me, too!

Remember I told y'all that last Saturday was my birthday?!?!
Well....did I tell you how we celebrated?!?!?!

Pappy and I participated with our SONday school class in a day of prayer....
....and fasting!!! 
It was the most AWESOME day I think I've ever spent.  

At four in the afternoon, we met at the home of our teacher and had another two hours of praying and sharing and singing and just plain ole' worshiping HIM!!!  During our prayer time and reading the Bible, I knew in my heart that God was speaking to me about a certain situation.  I had felt that little "tug" earlier in the week and shared with a couple of people....who disagreed with a decision I was about to make.  On Saturday morning, I sent a text message to my best friend and told her I needed prayer....explaining what I felt the Holy Spirit prompting me to do.  She didn't try to "talk me out of it"....
....she was very supportive....
....told me she would pray for me....
....and her advice was.....
..... "follow your heart which is the Holy Spirit speaking".

Lesson learned....
....trust HIM and don't go seeking advise from others about "what would you do"....or "what do you think".  There's nothing wrong with that....but realize that HE does give me discernment and wisdom....'cause, after all....I prayed for those things!!!
;-)

Thanks be to our precious Lord and Savior for that "still small voice"....
....and for confirmations from best friends!!!

And....for the prayers of fellow believers to help us face challenges!!!

I this verse of scripture....

Joshua 1:9
This is my command—be strong and courageous! 
Do not be afraid or discouraged. 
For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. 

Hope your Thursday is full of sweet blessings!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  2. WOW, did you speak to my heart this morning....and yes God is so very good....good beyond my wildest imagination.....

    You are so right, talking things over with a Christian friend is good but trusting God to give us answers to our questions is the solution...He wants our total dependance on Him if only we will be quiet and listen..He is always faithful to give us what we need when we need it....

    Hugs and blessings today....
