SEEMINGLY HAPPY...BUT REALLY... SO VERY SAD

SO VERY SAD

 

 

I was so sadden this morning to learn that a very funny comedian and talented actor had taken his own life.  How could someone who was so funny on the outside… be so sad on the inside?  I wish I could have talked to Robin and shared with him some good news.

When I meet people I don’t know…they look OK on the outside….but I wonder what’s going on in their insides.  I wonder if their soul is saved.  Have they made a decision for Jesus Christ?

People can look one way on the outside and feel another way on the inside.  Robin Williams seemed to have it all…money,fame, and talent but one thing he didn’t have was hope and peace.

Millions of people are like that.  Some other notables who had no peace were Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston , Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Don Cornelius, Donny Hathaway, Ernest Hemingway,Freddie Prinze , Herve`Villechaize(Fantasy Island) to name a few and the list of regular everyday people who had no peace and lost their lives to hopelessness is in the millions.

I was that person who had no hope or peace… so I know what I’m talking about!!!  I was completely healed in 1983!  There is Hope and there is peace available and the only person I know who can give it is Jesus Christ.  Let’s look around and see who we can share this good news with.  Let’s pray for the famous and share with those who cross our paths.

If you’re the one who has no peace or hope and are suicidal right this minute….call 911, go to an emergency room, mental health facility right away for your safety.  Please!!  Emergency help is available!

What is the Sovereignty of God?

5 Comments

 

Sovereignty of God best

 

Psalms 103:19 The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.

We Christians NEED to know this!!!!

 

Sovereign means – supremeness, absoluteness, unlimited power, unrestricted rule, total control, boundless possibilities, final and ultimate will, dominate, chief leader, ruler, unconditional, fullness in every capacity, all powerful, supreme  and infinite ruler, unlimited power, the power to do everything without accountability to anyone.

Has authority to execute His will over all at any time for any reason,  superior over all decision making, is commander and has control over all according to his own mind, knowledge and intelligence, has preeminence  and control over the entire universes, the present and infinity.  

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! Romans 11:33

In other words…..DON’T MESS WITH GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    God has the final say so!!!!

Recognize His power and have respect for His superior authority!

Psalms 135:6 The LORD does whatever pleases him, in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths.

So….I ‘m doing better now… but for many months I had been very sick since the beginning of 2014.  I was in the bed for many days.  It was a very hard thing to go through.  It was a lonely and painful time.  Also during that time the devil tried to discourage me and he waged a great battle against me.   I was in a weaken condition so he took that opportunity to try bring me down.  It’s a good thing that I had on my spiritual armor, my rhema word (rhema is instruction and comfort we get from the Holy Spirit when we need help… that we learned from reading and studying the Bible) , my prayer life up to date and knowing how to encourage myself in the Lord… going for me. (Hint- it’s how to get through a trial)

1 Chronicles 29:11 Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.

I knew this was a teachable time in my life and sought out the Lord for some answers.  The thing that helped me was knowing God’s Sovereignty over my life.  I was really comforted by that.  I knew there was a reason for my suffering and that God had a purpose.  I prayed for God to heal me and knew I would get help.  Until help was manifested I put my hope in the Lord.  I told my husband that God knows all about this…He’s aware of my situation.  I thought about the scriptures I knew and the meanings  were hiding  right there in my heart.  I held on to them and the Holy Spirit gave me strength through them.  God is God over every situation in my life.  I know that well now.  I thought back over all the many times I have been sick before and how He’d brought me through…even through cancer.  I was secure in knowing that even if it was my time to die I would be in God’s loving arms and pain free forever.  God is in charge over my life.  Thank you Jesus!

 Isaiah 66:1 This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be?

Sunday morning  when I was getting ready for church… a song came on called Halleluiah Anyhow by Thomas Whitfield   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASW6Dmo3AyY.  God spoke to me through this song and I cried and praised God so…that I could barely make it to church….but I did.  The Holy Spirit told me this is what God was teaching me through my last bout of illnesses.

I put myself in God’s hands when I repented of my sins and received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.  I let go of the steering wheel and let God do the driving!! I’m in God’s hand and He is sovereign ruler and authority over my life.  I depend on His grace and mercy for my soul.  I feast on of His love for me.  I’m awed by His holiness and know that He will ALWAYS do right by me.  His holiness and powerfulness makes me feel very small and microscopic which actually makes me feel very secure.

 

Sovereignty of God last last2

 

I try to let go of everything in my life and give control to my sovereign Father God. I read a book that told me His story and I look around at this planet, sky, sun and moon that confirms the true story of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I drop down to my knees and fall flat on my stomach in total submission to His divine authority. One day soon I will see His Sovereignty come to life as He will reign and rule over all the universe…over every kingdom. It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.'” Romans 14:11

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou

 

Philippians 4:11  I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.

 

 

God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
Amen.

 

 

“What I need for myself for today I share with you.  God is helping me to endure….God speaks…I listen…and share with you.”

Abide with me…Updated

Jesus…the Rose of Sharon will answer you when you call…if you ABIDE IN HIM John 15:7

 

 

I will be singing this song in church this evening and the words were hard for me to get so I rewrote some words and added new verses.  Sing these with the original melody and I pray you will be encouraged today.  God bless you!

 

 

                                                                                                           Abide with me

 

Abide with me, as nighttime fills the skies

I feel alone Lord, with me please abide

When others fail me, and comfort flees

You are my help o Lord, abide with me

 

Life is so hard; I need thee every day

This world grows dim; its beauty‘s fading away

Change and decay is all around I see

O God you never change, abide with me

 

I’ve learned to trust, in your abilities

I trust your word to have its work in me

When the enemy attacks me, he will have to flee

I know I’m strong because, you abide with me

 

I know I need to, humble myself and to pray

I need to live Christ, each and every day

You’ll never forsake me, for all eternity

You’ll grant my prayer request, if I abide with thee!

 

I’ve learn to trust you every single day

Your word has power, with it I will pray

With help from your Spirit, I’ll hide myself in thee

I know He’ll remind me this; “abide with me”
