The Lord Bless You…

Where mercy, love, and pity dwell, there God is dwelling too. William Blake

God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform. He plants his footsteps in the sea, and rides upon the storm. William Cowper

soldier, conquer, King.

I believe God is managing affairs and that He doesn’t need any advice from me. With God in charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry about. Henry Ford

believing and trusting,

God will not permit any troubles to come upon us, unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty. Peter Marshall

Oh, how He loves us!

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. Jesus Christ (John 14:1)

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls. Mother Teresa

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be. Anne Frank

In other words find time in the quietness of nature God is found and in His reflections He carries us through…

Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He’s sufficient for all of our needs. When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life, I found that my worrying stopped. Charles Stanley

Accepting forgiveness and His love…

Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right. Abraham Lincoln

The Bible is one of the greatest blessings bestowed by God on the children of men. It has God for its author; salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture for its matter. It is all pure. John Locke

Honesty and faith are His calling card to anyone who seeks Him.

Yahweh looks down from heaven, He sees the whole human race; from where He sits He watches all who live on the earth, He who moulds every heart and takes note of all men do.

But see how the eye of Yahweh is on those who fear Him, on those who rely on His love, to rescue their souls from death and keep them alive in famine.

Our soul await Yahweh, He is our help and shield; our hearts rejoice in Him, we trust in His holy name. Yahweh, let Your love rest on us as our hope has rested in You. King David (Psalm 33:14-16, 18-22)

In whatever kind of famine you’re experiencing, God is there.

Happy the man whose fault is forgiven, whose sin is blotted out; Happy the man whom Yahweh accuses of no guilt, whose spirit is incapable of deceit!

All the time I kept silent, my bones were wasting away with groans, day in, day out; Day and night Your hand lay heavy on me; my heart grew parched as stubble (misery) in summer drought. 

At last I admitted to You I had sinned; no longer concealing my guilt, I said, ‘I will go to Yahweh and confess my fault’.  And You, You have forgiven the wrong I did, have pardoned my sin.

That is why each of Your servants prays to You in time of trouble; even if floods come rushing down, they will never reach him.

You are a hiding place for me, You guard me when in trouble, You surround me with songs of deliverance.

I will instruct you, and teach you the way to go; I will watch over you and be your adviser.

Do not be like senseless horse or mule that need bit and bridle to curb their spirit (to let you get near them).

Many torments await the wicked, but grace enfolds the man who trusts in Yahweh.

Rejoice in Yahweh, exult, you virtuous, shout for joy, all upright hearts. King David (Psalm 32)

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. James 4:10

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraidJohn 14:27

With Jesus in our hearts the Father Abba is always near.

Yahweh in Hebrew and YHWH in Latin script, is the four-letter biblical name of the God of Israel and us all.
