Our God is Greater, Our God is Stronger



I was at the Solid Rock "One" service yesterday with a bunch of my good friends and we sang that song together, "Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other our God is healer, awesome in power our God, our God... and if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us, and if our God is for us, then what could stand against?" And then just last night we all heard the enormity of the thunder that was all around us. Oh my goodness we serve a Mighty King. Just think of what the Lord is capable of? I couldn't sleep after that. I was in amazement of how small thunder is in the grand scheme of just how Powerful our savior is. Thunder is terrifying and beautiful in it's own mysterious way, I praise His name for keeping me safe, and I know I am safe because I am in his hands. I do love thunder storms though. We hardly ever get them, but I just find such beauty and romance in them. Could be due to movies I have seen, but I would like to think it's the mysterious work of God that I find so intriguing about them. The world is so full of beauty that it is sometimes hard for me to fathom what the Lord is going to do when he sends Heaven crashing down to earth. I am unsure what it will be like, but I can tell you this, I am excited!! I own the fact that I am ready and excited for the coming of a new age, when Jesus claims what is rightfully His! Oh Glorious Day!
Friends own that our God is Greater, stronger, bigger, more mighty, more capable, than any other man, spirit, "god", King, President. Know who it is that created you, and know who it is that is capable of something as beautiful and scary as thunder and raging storms.

Love and Thunderstorms,

Keep the Faith

I woke up this morning to do my devotions, and spend time with Jesus and I read a passage from "Streams in the Desert." The Lord always knows what we need to hear. "O you of little faith, God has not failed you yet! When all looks dark and gloomy, You do so soon forget- Forget that He has led you, and gently cleared your way; On clouds has poured his sunshine, and turned your night to day. And if He's helped you to this point, He will not fail you now; How it must wound his heart, to see your anxious brow. Oh doubt not any longer, To him commit your way, Whom in the past you trusted, and is the same today."

Yesterday as I was celebrating our country's freedom, I was talking with my friend about losing hope, which in my mind is losing faith as well. I am not going to disclose what it was that we were losing hope in, but I can assure you it is something that we need not to worry about. It isn't always the most comforting to hear that God has a plan for you, and all of those things your mom tells you to make you feel better. You just want to see those results, NOW. But you have nothing if you do not have faith. My life has been pretty blessed along the way so far, why be anxious about tomorrow, when I know the Lord loves me, and he does have a plan for me?! Friends, those of you who know me well, do not let me lose faith! I pray that I will wake up each day with hope in my heart, and my mind at peace with the fact that I have no control over my life anyways because I decided a long time ago to give my life to our Savior. Best decision I ever made. If you are reading this by any chance, and you do not know Jesus, please please start asking questions. Look into this Jesus character, you will not be disappointed. I promise He is the only one who will not disappoint. He shows up to every coffee date on time, He is always there when you need someone to talk to, He comforts, He loves, He never rejects.

Love and Faithfulness
