Lord Heal My Heart! By Elaine Davenport November, 2013

AAHEARTBROKEN

Most of the time that we speak of healing, we are talking about sickness and  disease in relation to things sometimes and sometimes not treatable by a medical doctor.  But one of the subjects that we do not often enough speak of is:  a broken heart.   Yet. we all have faced it at one time or another.

Broken relationships,  Family inflicted pain, unexpected loss, severed friendships, unexpected aggression,  business dead ends,  financial woes,  bad decisions, being naive, fractured trust, misunderstandings….

We have to be so careful…but we have the freedom…and the right to say:

Lord…I give it all to You…it’s a faith thing!

Psalm 34:18

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.

The Fullness of His Grace! February, 2013

John 1:14-18 (#1 of 18 Bible Verses about Grace)
14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ ” 16From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. 17For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only,who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.

Memorial Day…Is a Special Day! May, 2012

On rhe last day of May in the United States of America we celebrate Memorial Day.  It is a day that we celebrate our soldiers past and present.  It is  now officially observed on the last Monday in May.  At our church they ask anyone who is a Veteran to stand and every claps.  It is a warm robust moment.  It’s also a little teary eyed for many of us who have lost loved ones or whose heart strings are tugged just thinking about the love, faithfulness and sacrices of those who served our country and the depths of that service.

 

I am a patriot.  I love my country, but more than that I am proud of those who have and do love our country so much so that they would serve in any capacity in our Armed Forces!  It sure makes me thankful and grateful for their service.

 

I found the Following article ….it’s great….

 

 

Soldier of God

G.I.
God Incarnate
Saviour of the world

 


I am a soldier in the army of my God. The Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer. The Holy Scripture is my code of conduct. Faith, prayer and the Word are my weapons of warfare. I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity and tested by fire.I am a volunteer in this army, and I am enlisted for eternity. I will not get out, sell out, be talked out or pushed out. I am faithful, reliable, capable and dependable. If my God needs me, I am there. I am a soldier. I am not a baby. I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, pumped up, picked up, or pepped up. I am a soldier. No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me or lure me. I am a soldier. I am not a wimp. I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name and building His kingdom! No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards or candy, or give me handouts. I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for or catered to. I am committed. I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around. I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside. I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.

When Jesus called me into this army, I had nothing. If I end up with nothing, I will still come out ahead. I will win. My God has and will continue to supply all of my need. I am more than a conqueror. I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ. The devil cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me. Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me. Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me. Governments cannot silence me, and hell cannot handle me. I am a soldier. Even death cannot destroy me. For when my Commander calls me from His battlefield, He will promote me to captain and then allow me to rule with Him. I am a soldier in the army, and I’m marching claming victory. I will not give up. I will not turn around.

I am a soldier, marching heaven-bound. Here I Stand! Will you stand with me?

The army of the Lord is an all volunteer force. No one will be drafted, and those who serve will do so eagerly rather than grudgingly. That army will make up “the body of Christ” (1Corinthians 12:25-27). We are to be “a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Timothy 2:3-4). We are to “put on the whole armour of God” (Ephesians 6:10-11).

 

Romans 13:12, “…let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.”

Know your enemy: The “wiles of the devil” is our enemy, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:11-12, 2 Corinthians 10:3). People are not your enemy, we are not to fight against one another. The things of the world are our enemy (James 4:4, Romans 12:2, 1 John 2:15, Luke 16:15).

A good soldier knows his weapon. We are to take the “helmet of salvation” and “the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17). When Jesus said, “…I came not to send peace, but a sword ” (Matthew 10:34), He didn’t mean a literal sword. He came to set men striving for a better world with a soldiers fervor and force of spirit.

Know your weapon: “study to show thyself approved unto God” (2 Timothy 2:15). Know your weapon: we are to “search the scriptures” (Acts 17:11, Luke 16:29, Isaiah 8:20; 34:16), and compare scripture with scripture (Isaiah 28:10) to come to the Truth. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God” (2 Corinthians 10:4). “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him” (Proverbs 30:5, Ephesians 6:16). We are to put on the “breastplate of righteousness” (Ephesians 6:14), and our “feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:15).

A good soldier stays in step. We are to walk in the “same steps as Christ” (2 Corinthians 12:18, 1 Peter 2:21). And most important, our secret weapon: we are to be “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:18), so that you may “open your mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel” (Ephesians 6:19). “We are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37). We are “fellowsoldiers” (Philippians 2:25, Philemon 1:2).

 

“A man may have to die for our country, but no man must, in any exclusive sense, live for his country. He who surrenders himself without reservation to the temporal claims of a nation, or a party, or a class is rendering to Caesar that which, of all things, most emphatically belongs to God; himself.” C.S. Lewis.
