Refresh and Renew Me....

Psalm 51:10 "Create in me a pure heart, Oh God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."

Good Morning Ladies,

What a powerful scripture that is....

What an awesome sermon we had yesterday.....The praise and worship was annoited....The songs we sang were certainly Gods plan....The presence of the Lord and Holy Spirit filled the air...

Arent we special that our GOD is FAITHFUL.....That HE is UNCHANGEABLE.....That HE is UNSTOPPABLE....and that HE NEVER LOSES FAITH IN US.....Even when we sometimes lose our "zeal" and "hunger and thirst" for Him.....But, its during those times that our wonderful Father and Daddy stays right beside us...He knows our hearts.....He knows who truly loves and believes in him....And when we are going through these times, He stays closer and puts his arms around us and lets us know that it's going to be ok, the ZEST and ZEAL and HUNGER and THIRST are still there, but it got buried amongst all the "STUFF" that has been happening in our lives...We sometimes dont realize whats happening, but one day it finally HITS US, FULL FORCE and we say "Wow what was that" its our GOD telling us "It's Time to Come Back To Me." "Its Time to Come Back to the Heart of Worship."

In these days ahead, we need to have that zeal and hunger and that special relationship with our God...These days ahead are going to be hard ones, we cant lose our sight on whats important. We cant let the fear, injustice, economy,family situations get in the way of whats really important in our lives....We need to have JESUS as our FOCUS and CENTER in our Lives. We need to each day, REFRESH our HEARTS, REJUVENATE our LIVES and FOCUS ON OUR WONDERFUL FATHER, who IS ABOVE ALL, who is MIGHTIER than any CIRCUMSTANCE, who LOVES US for who we are, because HE CREATED US through HIS IMAGE....He knew us before we were knitted in our mothers womb....How awesome is that?

Ladies, if today you are finding yourself in that place that you say "I have lost something along the way, I need that hunger and thirst and zeal, I need the presence of the Lord in my life again" I encourage you, find a QUIET place and just submit yourself to the Lord, tell him what is on your heart, let him know that you want those things back in your life, that you're sorry that you lost Him somewhere along the way..." He will understand....He knows that He was not going to be absent forever and HE will welcome you with open arms, because HIS ARMS were never closed....Because ladies, it happened to ME.....and I know first hand what a TRUE LOVING FATHER WE HAVE.....He Loves us ALL so much....What an awesome feeling that is....

If you know someone today that is going thru some rough times, call them and tell them that you LOVE them....If you see someone and you know they are struggling give them a HUG, because sometimes thats all it takes a HUG OR I LOVE YOU to get them back on the right road again...

I love all my ladies....I thank God every day for each of you.

Thank you Pastor Keith for a wonderful sermon yesterday. It's just what I needed and I know so many others also.....

Refresh me and Renew me Lord. Let my heart be filled with your presence and filled with the Holy Spirit. Give me the strength when I grow weak. Give me wisdom in situations that need to be addressed. Lord, give me a pure heart filled with your word and always let me find MY TIME and PLACE to be with you.....Thank you Lord for loving me and never giving up on me....Thank you for always being beside me.....Because without you, I am NOTHING.....in Jesus name, amen....

I am DESPERATE for you Lord...
I am LOST without you.....

Have a wonderful and blessed day....

Have a piece of chocolate too.....

In Gods Love
