Church Picnic

Saturday we had our yearly church picnic and as usual it was a great time of fellowship, food, fun, family and friends!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures I took:

O lead me, Lord, that I may lead
The wandering and the wavering feet;
O feed me, Lord, that I may feed
Thy hungering ones with manna sweet.
O use me, Lord, use even me,
Just as Thou wilt, and when, and where,
Until Thy blessed face I see,
Thy rest, Thy joy, Thy glory share.

Wait on the Lord

Noah was a truly patient man
So God called him to build an ark
And in the middle of the driest land
Where faith just like dust blew apart
Throughout so many years
And through some dark despair
Noah's faith was building strong
The hope and promise
That the Lord had shared
It gave him the strength to carry on

So no matter how dark this life may seem
We can stand on His word with believing
That He will never forsake us
When there's one thing we're willing to do

You gotta be willing to wait on Him
Just wait upon the Lord
Put every bit of your faith in Him
'Cause He'll open heaven's door
You gotta be willing to wait on Him
For His blessing He'll reward
If we don't accelerate
We can then celebrate
If we can just wait
Wait on the Lord

Even though the winds of life
Blow swiftly by
The pace of His grace we will feel
And in our times of needed let's realize
That the hope in His word is so real

So no matter what life may have in store
We will know that His will
Is worth waiting for
And He will never forsake us
When there's one thing we're willing to do

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone, to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly ad exclusively.

But, God says to a Christian, "No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and content with being loved by Me alone; not until you resolve to giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me.

Only then will you be able to have the intensely personal and unique relationship that I have planed for you.  You will never be united to another until you are united with Me, exclusive of anyone or anything else, exclusive of any desires or longings.

I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing -- One that you cannot imagine.

I want you to have the best.  Please allow Me to bring it to you.  You keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things.  Keep listening and learning the things I tell you.  You just wait...that's all.

Don't be anxious.
Don't worry.
Don't look at the thing you think you want.

You just keep looking off and away, up to Me, or you'll miss what I really want to show you.

Then when you're ready, I'll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any of you could ever imagine.

You see, until you are ready, until the one I have for you is ready (I am working at this very moment to have both of you ready at the same time), until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me and the life I have prepared for you, you wont be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me..... Thus, the Perfect Love.

And dear one, I want you to have this wonderful love.  I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me.

I want you to enjoy completely the everlasting union of beauty, perfection, and love that I offer.

Know that I love you utterly.  Believe it...and be satisfied"

Matthew 6:34

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Uganda Missions Trip

My heart is very burdened for missions and when I heard that my friend's daughter and son where going on a missions trip to Uganda, I knew I wanted to help spread the word so others could also help, both by praying as well as giving.  Check out their blog for more details!
