Let God.............

~ As mere mortals... it's simply not possible to look beyond heavens veil to see why God allows things to happen as they do. The simple truth is that God is God... and we are not! And let's face it... sometimes the things that happen don't seem fair! But thankfully, God has sent his son Jesus Christ to "save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them" (Hebrews 7:25)
Though we may suffer temporarily on this earth... and... no one is denying the intense grief we experience as human beings... we can rest assured through faith in Christ of an eternity where "there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain" (Revelation 21:4)
I tell you.... I look forward to that day!

Hugs... Love & Blessings!

Will God meet all your needs?

Have you ever pondered the real meaning of Philippians 4:19, “My God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus”? If so, then you may also have encountered some frustration.

“What about this need I have had for years?” you wonder. “Doesn’t God care about that aching hole in my heart? Why doesn’t He just fill it by meeting my needs automatically?” The truth is, God wants us to trust Him and not look only for the blessing. In other words, keep our focus on the right thing, which is a personal relationship with the Savior. Circumstances have little to do with lasting joy. Peace, joy, and contentment come from knowing God and having a personal relationship with Him. The only way to be fully happy is to have a heart that is set on Jesus Christ. Then when difficulty comes, we won’t feel lost, confused, or disillusioned.   Now please understand... this doesn't mean we wont have days of sadness... frustration... fear... etc.   God gave us emotions for a reason... to FEEL.  Feel for others... feel for Him... and yes even feel for ourselves.   What we have to remember is to not "live" in those emotions!!!  Feel them... cry it out... be hurt... be angry.... but then,  Give it all to God and feel the comfort of knowing He will tend to all your emotions and needs!

Many people attempt to meet their own needs apart from God. But this never works. It only leads to frustration and deep disappointment. There will be times when we wonder if He hears our prayers. He always does. And He also is the only One who can answer correctly and satisfy the desires of our hearts. So why do we struggle? Usually, it is because we think we know better than God. We fail to realize we cannot meet our own needs or compel Him to comply with our personal desires, schedule, or concept of how we think something should be done.  Basically... we are control freaks.  Our hearts are willing to give it all to God ... but our heads think we have a better and faster way to resolve our own issues.  I will be the first to admit I know this is true about myself.  Maybe its because I'm a mother and as a mom you really do need to control a lot of what goes on in your home with children.
But the reality is.. I'm not the one in control.  God is!!!  So I find myself not always praying for my "need"  God already knows what that is... but I pray for God to take control of my "Need" to be in control.  Just like the child I am... scold me... slap my hands and say, "no no" !   Letting God have it all is the trust He desires from us. Which creates a wonderful relationship with Him!

The first step to having our needs met is to trust Him completely with the entirety of our lives. He knows what is best for us, and His purpose in allowing any delay is for our good. Waiting prepares us for a greater blessing. It strengthens our faith and reliance on Him and consequently rids us of a desire to be self-sufficient.

The second step is to obey Him and allow Him to work fully in our lives. Many times, He stretches our faith by allowing us to have a need. He knows how we will respond, but He wants us to learn how to say yes to His design—even when we do not have all the information and facts.

The third step is to trust and wait for Him. In a very real sense, your unmet need is a form of trial and temptation. It’s a trial because its lack of fulfillment can feel truly painful, and it’s a temptation because it urges you to turn away from God to meet your own needs. But James says, “Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him” (1:12).

So what are you to do when the delay goes on, the pressure to give up increases, and you feel weary of beating yourself up with false guilt? It may sound like a platitude, but keep your eyes on the Lord and follow Him—no matter what. James tells us that the testing of our faith leads to perseverance, which works to make us “perfect and complete, lacking in nothing” (1:4).

God bless

Going for God...........

Going for God

The struggle has come...…

Hello my friends and family!  First... let me ask for prayers!
I'm reaching out with a great need for my boys.  Since their dad's passing our financial state has slowly become a struggle.
Finances have become more of an issue this year now especially trying to pay for two boys to go to college.   We've filled out papers, forms and anything else we can find.   The boys are looking at more scholarships and even grants for more help.   But as of right now... we haven't had much of any luck.   With school starting in a couple weeks... we are reaching out here in hopes to get some help for David's Freshman year and Michael's Sophomore year.

Michael wants to become a Youth Pastor

David wants to pursue Worship Arts and Deaf Ministry.

I know the need seems large... but its to help them both.

We would appreciate the help!
As we sit here with our need... we understand that we aren't the only ones.   So if you cant spare the money ….. we could certainly use all the prayers we can get also!

Thank you all so much!
<>< God Bless!!!

Grandbaby #9 ~ I'm so in love

On Friday, July 13, 2018 at 12:59 P.M. we were blessed with our newest little addition to the family.
She was about 3 weeks too soon, so her little lungs had a ...hard time keeping up at first, but with the help of the amazing staff in the NICU, the insane amount of love and support from our families, and our peanut putting up one heck of a fight, we were able to get her into a much healthier position. She’s doing really well and we believe she’ll only improve more each day.
Name: Emma Charlotte Weyers
Nickname: Peanut
Date: July 13, 2018
Time: 12:59 P.M.
Weight: 7lbs 6.9oz
Length: 19.75 inches
Mommy and daddy are insanely in love, and big brothers and big sister think she’s “the cutest.”🎀

 God has so blessed me
