Prayer of Blessing

Dear Lord,

I ask  you to bless your children. We have been oppressed for too long. Break the Yoke of our enemies.  They have no legal right to be here.  We kick them out of this land that you have given us Lord.

Shine your light upon us Lord. You promised us we would not be put to shame. You called us to inherit a blessing. Enlarge our territories.  Deliver us Lord as we step on the heels of our enemies.  Bless our going out and our coming in. Provide provision as we bless Your Name, in Jesus Name.

Called to Blessing

Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderearted, be courteous;[not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing. (1 PETER 3:8-9 NKJV)

But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. (JAMES 1:25 NKJV)

But He said, “More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”  (LUKE 11:25 NKJV)

Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?
Or who may stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,
Nor sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive blessing from the Lord,
And righteousness from the God of his salvation. (PSALM 24:3-5 NKJV)

A Thanksgiving Psalm


On your feet now—applaud God!
Bring a gift of laughter,
sing yourselves into his presence.

Know this: God is God, and God, God.
He made us; we didn’t make him.
We’re his people, his well-tended sheep.

Enter with the password: “Thank you!”
Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
Thank him. Worship him.

For God is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.

REMEMBER

This song REMEMBER  made it in the TOP 10 at Broadjam, Inc. today for Modern – Jazz.  I remember I wrote it for my brother, John Roelle, for his birthday last year.  I have such fond memories of growing up together on the farm.  Feeding the cows from the bottle, riding the horses, baling hay, and even rolling around the driveway in an empty barrell just for fun!  John is a Project Manager in Reno, NV. and has some amazing skills with CAD drafting, and putting up buildings, and managing people.  Love you John!

GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU:

Psalm 136:23-26

God remembered us when we were down, His love never quits. Rescued us from the trampling boot, His love never quits. Takes care of everyone in time of need. His love never quits. Thank God, who did it all! His love never quits!
*

Psalm 106:44-46

Still, when God saw the trouble they were in and heard their cries for help, He remembered his Covenant with them, and, immense with love, took them by the hand. He poured out his mercy on them while their captors looked on, amazed.
*

Psalm 113:1-3

Hallelujah! You who serve God, praise God! Just to speak his name is praise! Just to remember God is a blessing— now and tomorrow and always. From east to west, from dawn to dusk, keep lifting all your praises to God!
*

Job 36:22-25

“Do you have any idea how powerful God is? Have you ever heard of a teacher like him? Has anyone ever had to tell him what to do, or correct him, saying, ‘You did that all wrong!’? Remember, then, to praise his workmanship, which is so often celebrated in song. Everybody sees it; nobody is too far away to see it.
*

Isaiah 46:8-11

“Think about this. Wrap your minds around it. This is serious business, rebels. Take it to heart.Remember your history, your long and rich history. I am God, the only God you’ve had or ever will have— incomparable, irreplaceable— From the very beginning telling you what the ending will be, All along letting you in on what is going to happen, Assuring you, ‘I’m in this for the long haul, I’ll do exactly what I set out to do,’ Calling that eagle, Cyrus, out of the east, from a far country the man I chose to help me. I’ve said it, and I’ll most certainly do it. I’ve planned it, so it’s as good as done.
*

Psalm 74:18-21

Mark and remember, God, all the enemy taunts, each idiot desecration. Don’t throw your lambs to the wolves; after all we’ve been through, don’t forget us. Remember your promises; the city is in darkness, the countryside violent. Don’t leave the victims to rot in the street; make them a choir that sings your praises.
*

Psalm 105:1-6

Hallelujah! Thank God! Pray to him by name! Tell everyone you meet what he has done! Sing him songs, belt out hymns, translate his wonders into music! Honor his holy name with Hallelujahs, you who seekGod. Live a happy life! Keep your eyes open for God, watch for his works; be alert for signs of his presence. Remember the world of wonders he has made, his miracles, and the verdicts he’s rendered— O seed of Abraham, his servant, O child of Jacob, his chosen.
*

Psalm 119:25-32

I’m feeling terrible—I couldn’t feel worse! Get me on my feet again. You promised, remember? When I told my story, you responded; train me well in your deep wisdom. Help me understand these things inside and out so I can ponder your miracle-wonders. My sad life’s dilapidated, a falling-down barn; build me up again by your Word. Barricade the road that goes Nowhere; grace me with your clear revelation. I choose the true road to Somewhere, I post your road signs at every curve and corner. I grasp and cling to whatever you tell me; God, don’t let me down! I’ll run the course you lay out for me if you’ll just show me how.
*

Isaiah 62:6-7

I’ve posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem. Day and night they keep at it, praying, calling out, reminding God to remember. They are to give him no peace until he does what he said, until he makes Jerusalem famous as the City of Praise.

My Prayer for You:

Dear Lord,

I thank you that you remind us of how big you are, especially in the times when we feel small.  I thank you that you REMEMBER us and that You will work all these things out for our good.  Help us Lord, when we don’t understand.  Surround us with your presence like the morning fog, because in your arms – everything is good, in Jesus Name.

Open the Doors!

 When I am fearful, I read the Psalms….they give me strength and peace.  

This is from Psalm 34…

I bless God every chance I get;
my lungs expand with his praise.

I live and breathe God;
if things aren’t going well, hear this and be happy:

Join me in spreading the news;
together let’s get the word out.

God met me more than halfway,
he freed me from my anxious fears.

Look at him; give him your warmest smile.
Never hide your feelings from him.

When I was desperate, I called out,
and God got me out of a tight spot.

God’s angel sets up a circle
of protection around us while we pray.

Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—
how good God is.
Blessed are you who run to him.

Worship God if you want the best;
worship opens doors to all his goodness.

(Psalm 34:1-9 MSG)

Singing a New Song

Psalm 42

Psalm 98

A Psalm.

O sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have wrought salvation for Him.

The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness has He openly shown in the sight of the nations.

He has [earnestly] remembered His mercy and loving-kindness, His truth and His faithfulness toward the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have witnessed the salvation of our God.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth and sing for joy, yes, sing praises!

Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and the voice of melody.

With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!

Let the sea roar, and all that fills it, the world, and those who dwell in it!

Let the rivers clap their hands; together let the hills sing for joy

Before the Lord, for He is coming to judge [and rule] the earth; with righteousness will He judge [and rule] the world, and the peoples with equity.

Delight in the Light

Image

The entrance of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.(Psalm 119:130 NKJV)

Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105 NKJV)

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world.

He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.

(John 8:12 NKJV)

My husband took this picture this morning and sent it to me.  He knows that I love things like this!  And in these times I am reminded to look for the Light.  The darkness that I had experienced in my life can only be overcome by one thing – Light.  I can wish it away, pretend it’s not there, talk about it, write about it, sing about it, etc.  But the only thing that will get rid of the dark places of my heart and broken soul is Light – Jesus.  Yes, I have been camping in the dark lately, bringing forth songs and treasures of the darkness – songs that God has sung over me and my friends – to be shared in the light of His presence.  Places that need healing, thoughts that need to be brought into captivity, attitudes of the heart that need to be broken – all things are changed in the light.  Turn around my friends, there is a new day dawning, and God’s mercies are new each morning.  Yes, we have made it through the night, now rest and delight in the Light of His Presence!

light

 In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.

He was present originally with God.

All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.

In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.

And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it]. (John 1:1-5 AMP)

God is higher than anything and anyone,
outshining everything you can see in the skies.
Who can compare with God, our God,
so majestically enthroned,
Surveying his magnificent
heavens and earth?
He picks up the poor from out of the dirt,
rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash,
Seats them among the honored guests,
a place of honor among the brightest and best.
He gives childless couples a family,
gives them joy as the parents of children.
Hallelujah!

Psalm 103 (Amplified Bible)

[A Psalm] of David.

Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name!

Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits—

Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases,

Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy;

Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]!

The Lord executes righteousness and justice [not for me only, but] for all who are oppressed.From 365promises.com

He made known His ways [of righteousness and justice] to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.

The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy and loving-kindness.

He will not always chide or be contending, neither will He keep His anger forever or hold a grudge.

10 He has not dealt with us after our sins nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great are His mercy and loving-kindness toward those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him.

12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

From dailylifeverse.com13 As a father loves and pities his children, so the Lord loves and pities those who fear Him [with reverence, worship, and awe].

14 For He knows our frame, He [earnestly] remembers and imprints [on His heart] that we are dust.

15 As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes.

16 For the wind passes over it and it is gone, and its place shall know it no more.

17 But the mercy and loving-kindness of the Lord are from everlasting to everlasting upon those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him, and His righteousness is to children’s children—

18 To such as keep His covenant [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying it] and to those who [earnestly] remember His commandments to do them [imprinting them on their hearts].

19 The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, and His kingdom rules over all.

20 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, you His angels, you mighty ones who do His commandments, hearkening to the voice of His word.

21 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, all you His hosts, you His ministers who do His pleasure.

22 Bless the Lord, all His works in all places of His dominion; bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul!
