Psalm 18 New International Version (NIV)
For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord.
He sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said:
1 I love you, Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
and I have been saved from my enemies.
4 The cords of death entangled me;
the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
5 The cords of the grave coiled around me;
the snares of death confronted me.
6 In my distress I called to the Lord;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears.
MIDNIGHT HOUR ~
God hears the cry of your heart .
I remember years ago, laying on my floor and crying out to God. Something huge was going on and I didn't know how to handle it. I didn't know how to turn it to God because I kept taking it back. If we truly believe God is able, then allow him freedom to grow you. To grow you into a stronger person and cast away the things that try to entangle you. The devil wants to destroy you and keep you from victory in life. I can look back now and see the difference in positive choices.
My life is full of family and friends. I can see sadness but I choose to live in happiness. I choose to see the good in each day of life and learn from the other stuff that happens. Sometimes I say things and wish I had never said them, Once those words come out of your mouth, they often plant in someone else's heart. Be careful the words you speak about yourself and others. God wants us to spur one another day, not put them down or say negative things about them. Who knows what someone else is truly going through but God.
Hebrews 10:24-25 New International Version (NIV)
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
LET US CONSIDER ~
I spur someone toward love and good deeds
It is so refreshing to get up in the early morning to pray and write you. I seek God and ask what should I say today and the words begin to come. I count it an honor that God give me words and I can spur you on in a new day too. I always start with myself and learn in a new day. Life is about change and daily we don't know what we will face. Facing it with God makes life so much better. Purpose this a good day and count those blessings in your life.
It was in the midnight hours years ago, when I felt God speak to me. Speak me to write, show others the importance of getting back up from mistakes. Living in their now with joy and making the best of what God has given them to now. Keeping our eyes focus on our lives and not comparing it to someone else's life. God is good all the time my friends and able to bring you through the hardest things of life. Look how far you are today and gives thanks. I know it's hard sometimes, but praising through a storm makes it so much better. Life is better today than yesterday and each step is a purpose step by God. New beginnings happen and I thank God for that each day of life. I hope you do too!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
