Do not let your heart envy sinners,
    but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord.
 There is surely a future hope for you,
    and your hope will not be cut off.   Proverbs 23:17-18


Prayer:I agree with you today, that there is a future hope for me. Help me not let go of that thought. Amen

Prayer:Help stay focused on You

The hand of the Lord was upon me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of the valley; was full of bones. And he led me around among them, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and behold, they were very dry. And he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live, and you shall know that I am the Lord.”   Ezekiel 37:1-6 ESV



Prayer:Oh Lord, let faith arise in me that no matter what the need-spiritual, emotional, mental or physical-I will look to YOU to breathe new life into the area.  Speak to my dry bones and bring life I pray. Amen

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.   Jeremiah 29:11


I would like to share with you my New Years post on Dominate Your Diagnosis. I hope you will take time to read it and be blessed.

Happy New Year!  As we enter 2014 I am certain we all face some sort of challenge.  In our little family, guidance and wisdom areguidance key needs starting 2014.

  • Guidance as my husband considers career adjustments and looks for new employment.
  • Wisdom for me in several different areas.
  • Direction for our daughter as she graduates college in May and has many changes to look forward to.

For some readers,

  • courage and hope are your key needs starting out 2014. You are facing challenges bigger than yourself.
  • Perhaps health and strength are your key  needs at the start of this year as you cope with the physical needs of lupus and lonelinessother autoimmune diseases.
  • Maybe friendship and family are areas of need.  There may be a void in your life or healing that needs to take place.  I could  go on  but I think you get the picture.

What is a person to do?  After the celebrations end and life falls back into the daily routine, where will we find help for the key concerns in our life?  For me, the starting place is always God.  I simply cannot handle the big issues of life alone. The people close to me do not have the ability to soothe all the inner stirrings of anxiety, doubt or what have you, in my soul.  My prayers usually start by explaining the situation to God, even though He already knows.  They are usually short and to the point, but consistent, until the situation is resolved.

Even though the answer  is not always what I want or expect, prayer helps calm me going through the situation.  I do not feel so alone inside with all my feelings, fears, and apprehensions.  People are great, but for me, nothing soothes my soul like leaning on Someone bigger than myself.god-of-all-comfort

Whether or not you deal with the challenges in life the way I do, I sincerely pray that you have

  • all the resources you need to meet your challenges in 2014, and that you will have a good resolution.
  • I pray you will have wisdom and guidance when you need it.
  • I pray you will be courageous and filled with hope as you meet every challenge.
  • I pray you will find increased health and strength to live life more fully than last year.
  • I pray your relationships will thrive this year and your family will have peace.
Thank you for following this blog and for your encouragement which usually came at just the right time.

Hope in HIM

 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him,
    on those who hope in his steadfast love,
 that he may deliver their soul from death
    and keep them alive in famine.

  Our soul waits for the Lord;
    he is our help and our shield.
  For our heart is glad in him,
    because we trust in his holy name.
  Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
    even as we hope in you.    Psalm 33:18-22    English Standard Version

Prayer: Thank you God that we can hope in The One who created all things and holds all things in His hands. We have nothing to fear.  We are truly blessed. Amen

  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.
  I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
    therefore I will wait for him.”

  The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
    to the one who seeks him;
  it is good to wait quietly
    for the salvation of the Lord.  Lamentations 3:22-26 New International Version 

Prayer: Thank you Lord for your great love for me.  Thank you for your faithfulness to me.  My hope is in you no matter what I encounter this day.  Amen
