Hope Bubbles Over

Learning to rejoice in our sufferings is not always easy – yet it is the only way to be BAPTIZED BY FIRE!

Hope bubbles over. Yep. Think of when you make pasta.  You start with cold water and put it on the stove.  I have a gas stove, so the fire goes on.  And watch and wait until the water boils.  The water wouldn’t boil without the flame.  Then you add some pasta and if you don’t lower the flame the water boils over right?  Those bubbles are HOPE.

Up, Up, Up, and over.

And isn’t it funny that the water has to boil before hope can bubble?

Only when it’s hot do those bubbles of Hope multiply.pasta

God is a God of Hope – not despair.

He is a God of possibilities – not impossibilities.

He is a God of life, revival and renewal – not death.

God’s Promise to You:

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you…

Angels Descending

A Word from the Lord

STAND

STAND

Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen, Dedicated to Bob

When the money’s gone and the bills come in

When the sky turns black lightning, thundering

When our friends or family betray

We’re gonna forgive them anyway

 

We’re gonna get through this

We’ve been through a whole lot worse

We’re gonna get through this

Dig down deep and take my hand

Together we stand

 

When the work is long and the pay is slow

When our hair turns gray cause we’re getting old

When the kids move out to find their way

We’re gonna love our life anyway

 

We’re gonna get through this

We’ve been through a whole lot worse

We’re gonna get through this

Dig down deep and take my hand

Together we stand

 

 

They may kick they may bite

They may slander and they may fight but

 

We’re gonna get through this

We’ve been through a whole lot worse

We’re gonna get through this

Dig down deep and take my hand

Together we stand

 

 

Be careful—watch out for attacks from Satan, your great enemy. He prowls around like a hungry, roaring lion, looking for some victim to tear apart. Stand firm when he attacks. Trust the Lord; and remember that other Christians all around the world are going through these sufferings too.

 After you have suffered a little while, our God, who is full of kindness through Christ, will give you his eternal glory. He personally will come and pick you up, and set you firmly in place, and make you stronger than ever. (1 Peter 5:8-10 TLB)

Rise Up, My Love (132): Which Way Does the Wind Blow?

Originally posted on Summer Setting:

Quiet GardenSong of Solomon 4:16 “Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out.” The bride now calls out to awaken the winds. Most commentators say the north wind speaks of adversity and the south of pleasant circumstances, and conclude that every believer needs both the storms and sunshine of life to mature. The conclusion is doubtless correct (since God has universally ordained tribulation and joy for each believer), but most commentators must live to the north and west of Israel, because the Bible’s own commentaries on the wind are quite different! SS 132 Lady and Tramp Gardens in Flower PotsAccording to the Scriptures, the north wind brings fair weather (Job 37:22) and drives away the rain (Proverbs 25:23). The south wind quiets the earth (Job 37:17) and brings heat (Luke 12:55). In the land of Palestine, it is the east wind that brings rough weather (Isaiah 27:8), withers…

Rest in the Sacred Space

Rest in the Sacred Space

~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen

Some days I have nothing to say
I can rest in our sacred space
Knowing that your love covers me
and You will lead the way
I trust Your Word my Lord
to your promises I cling
I’ve said my prayers and
I’ve held my tongue
Your peace and presence
Now You’ll bring

peace 9

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.

He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,

But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:28-31 NKJV)

Glitter Sprinkles 

 GLITTER SPRINKES

~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen~

 

With our feet standing firmly on the ground
We release Spirit to go forward into the future
Speak God Promise Words into the moment
Mix it with faith and expectation
We can grab handfuls of goodness
Carry it back to the present
Open up our hands and
Sprinkle God’s mercy and kindness
Everywhere we go as
Glitter Sprinkles Gods Grace

And the Lord said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy,and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. (Exodus 33:19 NIV)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever. (Psalm 23:6 NKJV)
