a repost ... from 8 years ago

i sometimes go back in my blog ... to see what i was thinking at another time and place in my life ... this post is from 8 years ago ... and it encouraged me today ... and reminded me of a BIG truth - each of us matters to GOD ...


have you ever had times in your life when it seems that your voice is so small, no one hears it?  when you call the maytag repair guy and no one comes ... when your normally speedy internet, just churns and churns, and the provider doesn't care ... when a loved one is in pain, and you can't do anything to help? ...


i have had so many incidents this past while, that it has to be more than coincidence ... it seems i'm under attack ... every day, my "smallness" shouts - "you have no voice ... it doesn't matter, so don't even bother trying!!!" ....


but it does matter - because though i may be small - the God i serve ISN'T ... and it is His battle, not mine ... i just need to keep my eyes on Him who redeemed me ... keep praying and keep reading my bible - which tells me that i was so important to God that He sent His only Son to die for me ...


the maytag guy may not hear me ... but God does!  the internet may be slower than molasses on a january morning - but God isn't slow to encourage my heart ...


yup - i need my focus on things that matter ... things that are eternal ... because though my voice is small and muffled on earth - it is heard with love and concern in heaven ...

my morning view

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.  ~ Jesus ... (Matthew 11:28-30)

Where does your strength come from?


Where does our strength come from?  From God ... who created the heavens & earth.   Now that is all the power we will ever need!

looking towards eternity ... and Jesus ...


i took this pic in the fall of 2015 ... 3 years ago already ... it seems like time is a speeding locomotive heading towards eternity ... time to seek HIM who will meet "the saved" on that train ... it's good to be found in Jesus ... the One and Only ...

God knows the beginning and the end ...


it gives me comfort to know that GOD has all my days ordained ... even before i was formed.  even if i am only known to a handful of people in my lifetime - i am KNOWN to the Creator of the Universe ... the one Who designed me ... my life matters ... your life matters ... take heart ...
