Can God Fail? “Prayers for Japan, A Nation” A testimony of God’s mercy. Inspirational Poetry.

I can a test
God is the best
I should have been dead
But Instead
God kept me out the grave
That’s why I rant and rave
I called on the Lord
He heard my cry
I didn’t want to die

The Lord picked me up
He carried me to the top
I didn’t have the strength to stand
God held me in His hand
He told me He had me
It was up to me to believe
It was hard when I looked at my circumstances
There was no reason to dance
I kept my eyes on God
I knew with Him I didn’t have to rob
There was no need to be afraid
He didn’t give me fear
I knew God was near
I felt like I would faint
I began to see pictures that only God could paint
The colors began to race through my head
I wasn’t dead
I was alive
That’s no jive
I don’t care what no one says
Only God can give us another day
Things won’t always be the way we won’t them to be
Remember Jesus died on a tree
He did that for you and me
What more do we need
God is with us indeed
Eventually all will pass away
Only God’s word will stay
Stand on God’s word today
He can’t fail
That’s no fairy tale.

Psalms 104: 33-34

I will sing to the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
May my meditation be sweet to Him;
I will be glad in the LORD.

I pray that we will repent and turn from our wicked ways, seek God’s face and humble ourselves before the living God. May the God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac hear our prayer and forgive us of our sins. Praise God this day for His mercy, grace and forgiveness. Thank you God for your love. It is truly unconditional.

Bless the LORD, O my soul!

Praise the LORD!

When I woke up this morning, I heard the Lord speaking the words above to me. As I sit here typing these words, I know how great our God is. In life things don’t always go the way we desire for them to go. God said in his word that there would be trials and tribulations. Romans 5:3 “and not only this, but this we also rejoice in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance. And perseverance, proven character, and proven character, hope and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

We aren’t supposed to get discouraged through the trials and tribulations. The bible says we are to count it all joy. James 1:2, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.”  Many would ask how in the world you go through difficult times joyous. Who can do that? We need Jesus Christ. We can’t do it without the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We need God to guide us. We need Him to direct our path. We must appreciate and trust God to be all that He says He is. We must believe in His word.

My prayers go out for Japan. I pray that they will see God’s hand and He will restore their land. May the God of peace be with them. I pray the people everywhere will draw near to Him. James 4:8, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” Let’s pray for one another. Prayer is the only thing that changes anything.

Love is the answer; forgive and live today.

I mention in my last blog that my website was hacked.  Praise God that He always has a ram in the bush.  My site was back up and running in less than two days thanks to a college friend of mine at Solutions by O.G. Brown.  He owns this business and is a business genius.  They do websites, quickbooks, quicken, fix computer problems which includes building and diagnosing problems such as virus, harddrive crashes, hacker issues, etc.,  He is also an excellent photographer who works in the Dallas Forthworth, TX area.  His website is   Praise God for friendship.   What Satan meant for evil, God worked it for good.  Glory to God in the highest. 

If I didn't know the Lord, I would have been really mad at that guy or who ever they were.  When I think about how much God has forgiven me over and over again, how can I not forgive?  Life is too short to  be angry or bitter.  God sees everything.  He is our source. 

I pray for people who seek to destroy others through hatred and violence. May they come to understand that love covers a multitude of sins and that hatred is a tool used by the devil to keep us apart. A house divided can't stand. Together we can move mountains.  1 Peter 4:8  "And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins."
Are you ready to move some mountains today?  Is it hard for you to forgive? 

Today is a new beginning.  It starts with you.  Forgive and live today.  

God bless.
