I have seen God working in my life alot during this last week. I found out that I was pregnant and was having complications that should have caused a miscarriage, my dr could not understand how I wasn't miscarrying but I know God was the one that was keeping my womb closed and keeping my baby healthy. My church was praying and so was my family and today my pregnancy is right on schedule with no complications and I give God all the glory!

Holly Spin said...

my all time favorite scripture verse is Psalm 23:1-6 ...it is s well know psalm that King David wrote .. i learned it as a child in the Awana Program SPARKS that attended ..and ever since then .. it has been my favorite ..and whenever i am going through a valley of some sort ...i find myself opening my bible to Psalm 23..and reading it out loud ..and after reading it out loud ..it gives me a great amount of strength and comfort..to draw on to get through whatever valley i may be going through....feeling the Lord's presence through whatever valley i may be going through ..and it reassures me that the Lord is there with me during the valley , and also comforting to know that the Lord will be with me through the good and the bad ..and that the Lord's mercy will be with me all the days of my life

I do the bookkeeping for our small business...and it is tax time...this year has gone smoother than years before even with new forms and paperwork to deal with...last week a sweet note was in my mailbox (not my inbox, but the REAL snail mailbox)...it said:

"We chose your card from our prayer box, so we have been sending up extra prayers for you during the month of February. We hope that you have felt an extra dose of peace and protection."

God's grace...shown thru precious people and their prayers...He is so good!

My husband and I have had some bad things happen to us lately like our car catching on fire and burning. :( We were already low on money but things keep seeming to add up. But I know God is with us daily and that is my comfort. My favorite verse: "God is our refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1

Sunny said...

My Sis had a brain aneurysm on January 23 and was transferred from our local hospital to a bigger hospital in St. Louis where she received awesome care by doctors. We could see God's hand in all that happened from the initial injury to a full recovery with no deficits. She is home now and doing well. We are so thankful and so grateful to a loving caring God.

Stephanie said...

The verse that has been on my heart lately is from John 21:22 "...what is that to you? You must follow me." As I read this chapter of John, I am struck by the simplicity of Jesus' call to us: Follow me. I hear Him saying: Stop looking at what I'm doing in the lives of others, or comparing your relationship with me with theirs. Simply look to Me and follow Me. That's all He's asking, I just make it more complicated. The chapter also shows the dangers of gossiping :p

I saw God working in my life after my son broke his arm. It was not healing right and I didn't know whether to let it heal and go through a process the doctor would say would work, but I didn't understand, or to have him have surgery. I told God I needed his direction. A few minutes later a man I barely knew walked up, saw my son's x-rays and proceeded to describe in detail the process the doctor had described to me. He said he had seen it work 100's of times and that I shouldn't worry about it working. I was utterly amazed! And I still am. God is so sweet to me. :)

God's Grace amazes me. I've gone from being a Mary to being a Martha, distracted by many things. I have far too much on my plate and there just doesn't seem to be enough time to accomplish anything.

On Sunday I was running late for Sunday School class before church. This has become the norm for me and I've missed a lot lately too. So as I pulled out of my driveway and headed down the street I was lifting all of it up to God. "I'm tired of living like this God. I'm tired of always running late and not being able to make time to spend with you. Even when I make the time and open your Word, I can't focus and end up just frustrated. I want to be a Mary again. I want time to sit at your feet and learn from you. I need your help. Please set my heart on fire for you again and help me to stop being pulled away by the distractions."

As I was waiting for the light to turn green, I heard God whisper "Don't go to class. Stop right now and spend time with me." So I turned into the McDonalds on the corner, placed my order in the drive-thru, parked the truck and prayed. Then I opened up a new Bible app I had downloaded the day before but hadn't looked at yet and found that it had several reading plans to help me get back on track. I went to church with my heart on fire again.

God's Grace is just Amazing!

Ephesians 2:8-9
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

I absolutely love this verse!! It is such a great gift!!!

I see God working all the time in the form of answered prayers. I pray over my family and friends everyday and nothing fills me more than when one of my children tells me of a incident where they could have been in an accident or mishap of some sort but how they were spared. PBTG!!!!!

Pamela said...

7 months ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. My family could not wrap their minds around my attitude the morning of my surgery. It was a win/win for me...if I was called to Heaven I would get to meet the One I have tried to serve my whole life and if He didn't take me that meant I had more work to do on earth...so here I am patiently waiting on The Lord to show me what is next.

Kandice said...

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

I'm reminded each and every morning that his compassion for me never its, its new every morning. Each and every morning I am reminded of his promise, and I am so thankful for that. :)

God Bless!

I have found that certain experiences
in my life have led me to the following favorite Bible verse:
Psalm 46:10, Be Still and Know That
I Am God...This really helps me find solace in life!
Many thanks, Cindi

My favorite scripture:

Isaiah 40:31

King James Version (KJV)

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

I want to mount up like that eagle, I want to go higher in Christ...He's my everything!! ~Nita~

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? (Psalms 118:6 NKJV)

Jennifer B. said...

Even though I'm being hard pressed on every side the Lord has been faithful to send me a word of peace and hope daily...something to help me hold on for one more moment/day...He is faithful to never leave us...

"IN THE DAY WHEN I CRIED OUT, YOU ANSWERED ME, AND MADE ME BOLD WITH STRENGTH IN MY SOUL!" Psalms 138:3

This verse has become a reality in my life when I cried out to Him after the death of my son in 2004.

Jeremiah 29:11, 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.i This is an example of how GOD had and has my life planned out. Once a single mother, working full time and in college as a full time student was not easy. Even at one point not having my own transportation, God allowed me to be surrounded by God fearing women who mentored me spiritually and showed me who God can be inane through my life. I have since graduated from college, purchased my wn vehicle and can say I am now married and it has been 9 years now. I can look back over my life and see the works of Christ. Areas that I did not see for myself, "we walk by faith and not by sight"!! (Paraphrased). 2 Corinthians 5:7, 7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.

GOD IS A GOOD GOD!!! AMEN

“For God loved the world in this way:[a] He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:16-17.

Currently I am battling the possibility of having Cancer and although it seems unreal and hard for me to understand, I know Jesus is in control and I take comfort in that. His GRACE is sufficient ♥

Dala Osborn said...

I have seen God in so very many parts of my life lately. He is showing me his Grace and teaching me how to have Grace toward others. It is amazing how he just makes things fall in place when you are in line with his Will! He has pointed me in new directions in almost every aspect of my life from family to finances. He has led me to a job I would have never even tried to do.

Joy Kittrell said...

1 Thessalonians 5:18

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

I had this book at one point but a family member swiped it. I remember days that i woulf be so down and i would pick it up and read exactpy what God had for me in that moment.

The verse is an example of my life and God showing himself to me every day that i cam get up out of this bed. GOD carries me throuh this illness and gives his mercy and grace to help me throuh every second of every day. I am so thankful he is in my life.

I see God working every day in the life of my Sister. She had two aneurysms and is now, by the Grace of God, on her road to a full recovery.

We are so blessed!

Gina Rampy said...

I have had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since age three (am now 50). There are days when my pain is almost unbearable but if I stop concentrating on the pain and simply pray, the pain is often lessened and I can go about my day. God is with me always!

II Cor. 12:9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."

So many times in my life have I had God's "amazing grace" poured out on me. When I was 15, my mother committed suicide, 5 months later my brother was killed in a car wreck, in 2008 my son was in a near fatal car accident that left him with brain damage, that same year in nearly had a nervous breakdown, lost my job, then lost my home. Each time God's grace is what pulled me through. He's always there for me, pouring out His love, His Mercy and His Grace. Without Him, I would be nothing! So I end my note the same way I started it....

II Cor. 12:9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."

Hazel Williams said...

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your[a] life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4
This is my theme scripture for this year. Reminds me that I am a new creation in Christ. I no longer need to be bound by the sin of the past. Look ahead, look up to God,don't look back. The past is the past. God is my today and tomorrow.

Cindy said...

I see God all around me all the time. When my husband entered the hospital with a serious ill that was nearly fatal. We felt the peace of God with us through the ordeal and the love and pray from our Church, carried through this time.

Willow said...

I have seen God's grace and Hand in my life a lot in the past 3 1/2 month beginning when my husband went Home to Jesus. My sweet husband waited for me. I was put to bed by the hospice nurse for a nap and when I got up, I hurried into the room where his hospital bed was. I crawled into bed with him and kissed him, and told him I loved, while stroking his hair and chest. I wept as I told him I was not mad at him for leaving, and that while I would miss him, I'd be ok. And I just kept touching him. A few moments later, he breathed his last. I looked at the hospice nurse when she told me he was indeed gone and said through my tears, "He waited for me. She said with awe, "Yes, he sure did." It was so totally the grace of God that I was so richly blessed to be cuddling the love of my life as he left his earth suit and went Home. Praise God!

I just found your site. Very nice from what I have had a chance to see. I am a full time working mom and student. I was just sitting here turning everything over to GOD! for I am overwhelmed with work, school and family life. I am not sure how I am going to get it all done and done well, so I turned it over to GOD. I know he has a plan and I need to start trusting in him and his plan. It is hard to let go but I know with his guidance I can do anything. I carry a pewter cross in my wallet that says Believe, I have carried it for years and find myself pulling it out more and more these days. Believe and he will deliver.
Thanks, Lynn
