sometimes life feels like a flood

sometimes life feels like a flood.

with the waters rising fast and hard.

with no escape and nowhere to turn.

and we wonder if we can make it.

if we can swim long enough. if we can tread water long enough. if we can fight long enough.

we wonder if God sees us flailing our arms.

if He sees the panic in our eyes.

if He sees we’re so obviously overwhelmed.

sometimes we wonder if God knows we’re about to give up.

if He knows we’re to the point where going under seems so much easier than going on.

if He knows the fight has been too long. that it’s been too hard. that it’s been too much.

sometimes we wonder if God sees us at all.

i know, because i’ve been there.   

in my own battle.

in my own flood.

and because i’ve been there i can look at you and tell that God does see us.

that He does care.

that He hasn’t forgotten us in the middle of our storm.  

we just need to find our promise.

God’s Word says in Psalm 18:16  “He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of the deep waters.”

HE DRAWS US OUT OF THE DEEP WATERS. There’s our promise!

and once we find our promise we need to hold on to it.

we need to speak it. 

we need to believe it. 

because satan may send a flood to threaten us…but God has promised He will never let us drown!

God took my mom

God took my mom.  When I was 6 years old and knew nothing about life.  Before I had a chance to know her. Long before I would have a way to remember her.  He took her.  And I grew up never having a mother. If God can see all, if God knows all, if God is in control...did He not think I would want a mom?  Or deserved a mom?  Or needed a mom?  Did He not care how painful it would be? Did He not care how awful it would feel?  Did He not care about me at all? Because I thought when you loved someone you wanted the best for them. You sacrificed for them. You made sure you did everything in your power to help them. And it didn't feel like God helped me. It felt like He punished me. And I had no idea why.  I just knew I hated it.  And there were moments that I hated Him.  When you're little, no one comes up to you and tells you it's going to be ok.  Most don't come up to you at all.  Because people shrink from talking about death.  They don't know what to say so they don

A Prayer for our Nation

Father, I pray according to 1 Timothy 2:1-3, for all who are in authority in this nation. I ask for Godly counsel and wisdom for the President and his Cabinet, Chief Justice, Associate Justices of the Supreme Court and all judges across this land.  Thank you for restoring to our nation righteous judges who hear Your voice and adhere to Your Word (Isaiah 1:26). We lift up the Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Defense, members of the Senate and House of Representatives, and all other leaders at every level of our government to receive the wisdom of God, to act in obedience to that wisdom, and for the power of God to flow in their lives.  I declare that they hear and obey Your voice, Lord, and the voice of a stranger they will not follow. Lord, I pray that righteousness be manifest in the hearts of all in authority in our nation, and that they seek after You with all their hearts, souls, minds and strength. In the Name of Jesus.  Amen. (Prayer from Kenneth Copela
