Love’s Light By Brenda Drake

          The world as we know it has been turned upside down.  What God said is dark is called light. What
God detests the world has declared good, Things once held dear are now cast aside as no longer valuable. Many churches are lukewarm, and fit in with the world system. The teachings and the presence of the power and authority of the Lord have been stripped from the lives of those who attend. Children of God need to stand and boldly profess the Word of God as they live a life that agrees with the Word of God. 

       The Church is at a cross-road; are we as Christians going to lay down our armor and give in to the pressures and the threats of evil control? Or are we going to get busy and pick up our armor? We need to be ready to follow our Lord to fight the forces that are taking our Country and our world into a place of no return. 

      I for one will say with God on my side what have I to lose?  I say I am not weak in God I am strong.  I stand and say I believe and will testify what the Word of God says is right is right.  What the Word of God says is wrong is wrong.  In my stand for right, I also admit God has given every man, woman, and child the free choice to do right or to choose the way of evil.  What is your choice?  If it is for God then stand for Him and boldly say so.  

Love’s Light

In the Light of Love darkness flees.
In His presence the heart receives.
Like a tree planted at the rivers side;
Full and filled vitally alive.
When rain clouds come and they still do,
God becomes a shelter too.
When you feel cold or in a storm,
God’s in control and your heart warms.
There is no place you go,
That your God does not know.
In the low times when you feel dry,
Your God becomes your supply.
As you lift up every problem, trial, and pain,
It is all covered in Jesus’ name.
Sadness, anxiety, worry or fear,
In Love’s Light has to disappear.
Love’s Light is health to heart, mind and soul.
It heals and in you overflows.
The wise abides in the Light of the Son,
As they are revived they also a light becomes.

John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Handled With God By Brenda Drake

            I wonder how I handled life without God’s help.  I now know I do not carry life’s burdens all by myself.  Whatever I face God is on my side and He is always as close as a prayer.  He is my strength and a very present help in time of trouble.

Handled With God

Climbing a mountain or riding waves hard and high;
That both takes great effort cannot be denied.
In your life both are true;
But the secret to success is who is traveling with you.
With God’s strength, faith, and peace reigning within;
The journey goes much better with Him.
The mountain of circumstances; with the walls of depression and fear,
With faith in God’s help the mountain may just disappear.
Those terrible waves of life; with things seemingly out of control,
With its turmoil and chaos that overtakes the soul;
All are handled with more grace with God at your side.
In fact upon His Word you can safely ride.
Then when the storms rage and you seek God’s face,
When He says “Peace be still” the raging’s threat is erased..
Do your best in any situation. Rejoice you do not travel life alone.
Trust your God and Savior to safely bring you home.

Exodus 33:14
And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Matthew 17:20
He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”

Allow God to Lead By Brenda Drake

With all the advantages of our modern forms of information there is certain disadvantage of misinformation. We if not careful are led astray and leave even common sense behind.  The Word of God along with a personal relationship with God allows us to have a God perspective.  He will sometimes give us a heads up as to what to listen too, and will give us peace when we hear the things that brings unsettling to our soul.

Allow God to Lead

Allow God to help you, allow Him to teach.
Allow the Spirit to inside of you reach.
Take warning of the danger that lies ahead,
To not into a trap be led.
Heed the instructions given to help you
Listen and obey what God asks to do.
Be aware of the false words that lead you astray.
Follow the written Word of the Scripture each day.
Do not let circumstances rule your life.
Trust God to make seemingly wrong things right.
Allow not the negative of the world to bring you down.
Only pay attention to the words of faith that you have found.
Attend to the One that dwells deep within.
And an exciting journey you will begin.

Isaiah 30:21 
And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

John 16:13-15 
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
