Flashback Friday 5

ImageHere we are with a bunch of most amazing friends having church in the park on a very hot day!  The view was captivating as the music was incredible while we were carried away from all of our cares that try to weigh us down.  I share this photo because when I was a child I used to pick these white flowers up and say my prayer and blow every one of them away…and if there were any left, well I would grab it off and toss it into the air and watch it fly, trusting in those little white helicopters.  Since those delicate moments, I’ve had some harsh realities that crush those soft flowers. But God is so much stronger, for the Bible says in Galatians “1:3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen”  So, as trials arrive, which they will…I can stand confident that I am never alone ❤

Saturday Stew 4

Sweet Lord, I thank You for all that You have done, for loving us like no one else does, for never leaving us, nor forsaking us….though we’ve run so far from You. I pray that as we feel the farthest from Life, full of the most pain…feeling sooo abandoned, that we know that we CAN call on You and you WILL answer us. I pray that we set aside ourselves and allow Your tender arms to hold, guard and heal us…that we may rejoice with You once again.

 

Yesterday my husband took me to the movie Gimme Shelter.  I totally recommend it!  Without giving away the movie (every part is incredible!), I would like to discuss it just a titch.

 

Apple, the main character, begins the movie in a setting and wants a change. When she tries to leave her current situation, the people there try to stop her…

The question I bring to the table this week is how do you overcome difficulties when you know you need to face a challenge? Where do you find support?

 

My challenge is my health.  The church I attend has a precious group called The Holy Huddle. We are only accountable to God, but are supportive to each other…and it’s through our Facebook site 🙂  When I am struggling with my health I pray, go to the Scriptures or my friends and family for prayer ❤

 

If you are facing a challenge and would like someone to pray through with you please email me at 2L2phant@midco.net

Taking Flight

This bird’s about to fly;
Test my wings and soar.
Lord, may I pass this test…
Not end up on the floor.
Hold my head up high
As I fight through storms today;
Help me use my wings
God I trust You today.
