April 30th 2012, Psalm 30

April 30th 2012 Psalm 30

Today I woke up at 4:00.  Folded some clothes that I put in the dryer last night then turned on a to watch while I did my elliptical for 30 minutes.  It was hard to turn it off because I was really liking it but I will watch more of it tonight when I get home from work to do 30 more minutes on my elliptical.  I went upstairs to make my coffee and read my Bible.  I read Psalm 30 and this is what I learned and am reminded of.

1.  Yes, You have lifted me up.
     Do I have enemies?  If I do, help me pray for them.
2.  Yes, you have healed me, and you continue to do that, thank you so much!!!
3.  You have kept me alive.
4.  Help me to remember to praise You because I want to.
     I am your godly one only because of Jesus, thank you for Jesus.
     Your name is holy.
5.  You anger lasts but a minute, thank you!
     You favor lasts a lifetime, thank you is not enough to say.
     Weeping lasts for a night.
     Joy comes in the morning.
6.  With You oh Lord, I have prosperity, help me never to be moved.
7.  Yes, You help me stand strong, because You love me, I can face tomorrow.
     If you hid your face, I would be dismayed but I would know that it would not be for long 
     because I know your promises.
8.  Help me always humbly come to you with my needs and problems.
9.  Help me trust you with my life.
     The dust can praise you if that is what you want.  
     You are faithful always.
10.  You hear all things and yes You are gracious to me, thank you!
       You are my helper.
11. Yes, many times you have turned my mourning into dancing.  
       Yes, You make me glad.
12.  Help me sing praise to you and not be silent.
       Help me give thanks to you forever. 

Thank you Lord for your Word, help me think about you and your word today as I go about my day and help me pray for each family member by name today.  Help me honor you in all I say and do.  Help me care about what you care about and help me make the right choices.  Help me make the hard choices.  I love you because of Jesus, Amen.

April 29th 2012, Psalm 29

April 29th 2012 Psalm 29

Why do I want to blog about God's Word?

God's Word is so exciting.  I just want everyone to know how wonderful it is, He is.
God's Word gives me great joy and happiness and satisfaction.
God's Word is so wonderful.
God's Word is powerful, it changes hearts.
God's Word is trustworthy, when so much these days can not be trusted.
God's Word is Truth.
It is honorable.
God's Word is Holy and I should tremble at His Word.
God's Word rebukes me, when I need it.
God's Word is for everyone.
God's Word is so much fun!!!
God's Word can help me everyday in so many ways.
God's Word teaches me about Jesus and who He is and what He wants from me.
God's Word teaches me how He works and does things and how I can know Him.
God's Word heals me when I am broken hearted.
God's Word washes me clean.
God's Word picks me up when I need it.
God's Word is His love for me written down.
God's Word is so helpful.
God's Word give hope and encouragement, when there is none to see.
I want you to feel my excitement about His Word.
There is so much more about His Word and my list is an embarrassment to how wonderful it is, He is.
He did it all for us because He loves us forever Amen.

Why do I forgot how wonderful God's Word is?

Because I want to be my own boss.
I don't trust Him.
I want to have my way in things.
Sin can be fun for a season but then it is horrible and brings death.
I don't want to know the truth.
I am deceived.
I am afraid.
I would rather hid from God.
I would rather blame God.

Why do I run to mere men instead of God?

Why do I run to books that men write instead of God's book, the book of wisdom that stands the test of time.  Is it because I trust some person that God created, to know more than the One who created him or her.  Is it because I think it is more fun to read something else, more entertaining.  Help me put your book first and then read others later and only if they pass your test of reading only things that are of good report like Philippians 4:8-9 says.

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Why do we all think that men have the answers but God does not?

I don't know, Lord, because that is mixed up, help me to trust in You & Your Word.
Help others to be excited about Your Word.
Your Word is a person, Jesus Christ.
Your Word is alive.
Your Word changes hearts.
Your Word is powerful.

This is a little long and I haven't even gotten to Psalm 29.

I always pray that the Lord, the Great Teacher, will teach me what He wants me to learn.

Ok, a quick version of what I gather and what I need to learn and do from Psalm 29

1.  Ascribe to the Lord, the glory & strength due His name.
     Tremble before Him.
2.  Worship Him because all power & might & glory are Yours O' Lord.
3.  You oh Lord you control the storms (the weather & the storms of our daily life).
     You thunder with your voice wondrously, doing great things which we cannot comprehend.
     You control all things.
     You are sovereign.
4.  Your voice is powerful.
     You voice is majestic.
I had to stop and go listen to and sing the song Majesty.

That is one great song!!!

5.  Your voice O' Lord breaks the cedars, the cedars of Lebonon.
6.  Your voice makes mountains skip.
7.  The voice of my Lord can do anything, raise the dead, You speak and it happens.

I bow down to you and ask you to forgive me for failing you so much every day.
Please help me obey you.

8. We are at your mercy Lord.
    Help me fear You.
9.  You know when the deer and the mountain goats give birth.
     You know all things.
     You can strip the forests bare.
     All will bow down to you oh Lord.
10.  You are the one who brings the floods.
        You are King forever.
11.  You dear Lord are the one who gives us strength and peace and our every breath.

How can I keep my ways pure?

Psalm 119:11 By keeping it according to Your Word.

You oh Lord are rightly to be praised and I want to love you more.  Help me obey you, please.  I ask that you take special care of my children, all 5 of them and draw them close to You and help them love Your Word.  Teach them Your ways, each day.  There is nothing better.  Keep them away from evil people and evil places.  Help them love Your Truth.  I pray this for all my family members.  Help me pray for each family member by name through out my day.  Show me what to pray for them.  Help me to be sensitive to the needs of others.  Help me love You and others more than I love my self, because I don't right now but I know I need to.  Give me a love for Your house and Your people.  Help me to love Truth.  Your Word is Truth.  Help me tremble at your word.  Help me love your ways.  I pray these things in Your precious name.  Amen

Psalm 28 Saturday April 28th 2012

God's word is so wonderful and I learn so much reading it.  This is the short condensed version of what I learned from reading Psalm 28 this morning. 
His word is true and trustworthy and stands the test of time.   

1. God is my rock.
2. I may speak to Him from my heart.
3. I may ask to be treated special if I do right.
4. I am repaid according to my deeds.
5. I need to regard the deeds of the Lord and the works of His hands.
6. The Lord hears me when I obey Him.
    His sanctuary is holy.
7. The Lord is my strength.
    He is a shield about me.
    My heart trusts in Him.
    I am helped, so my heart exults and makes me want to sing and thank Him.
8. The Lord is my strength.
    He is a saving defense to His anointed.
9. I am God's inheritance.
    He is the Great Shepard and will carry me forever.

April 27th 2012, Psalm 27

God's Word is so precious and I like to pray to Him as I read it because then I know I am praying His will.  God is so good and I am so unworthy.  He says that because of Jesus, I can come boldly to His throne of grace.  So I come boldly but humbly, so undeservingly.  This is while reading Psalm 27.  Have a great day.  

Dear Lord,

Thank you thank you for all you do and that you are my light and my salvation.
Help me to fear you and no one else.
Lord, You are the defense of my life, thank you for that.
You protect me from evil doers.
Help my heart not fear but trust you.
Help my confidence be in You oh Lord.
Oh dear Lord, help me see you and help me want what you want.
Help me love Your house.
Help me to sing praises to You, You alone are worthy of my praise.
You are so gracious to me, thank you!
Help me seek Your face.
Please don't be angry with me, though I deserve Your anger, I'm so sorry.  
Help me be so sorry that I strive to please You and not myself.
You have been my help and you have not abandoned me, thank you!
Thank you Jesus for what You have done for me, because of You, I have salvation. 
I trust that You do what Your Word says.  
You are the living Word.
My Mother and Father have NOT forsaken me, thank you for them, they are wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.  I am so thankful for them and for all my family.
Teach me Your ways oh Lord and teach me Your Word.
Help me tremble at Your Word.
It is alive and it changes hearts.
Thank you so much for Your Word.
I love Your Word, it is so wonderful.
Lead me in your level path.
Help my hope be in You oh Lord.  
Thank you for the encouragement of Your Word. 
You are so good and all that you do is good.  
I ask you to take special care of my children, all 5 of them and bless them, protect them and draw them all so close to You.  
Thank you for them.  What a blessing they are.
