Georgia on my mind!

We are leaving for Georgia tonight.

I am so grateful to God for this gift,  as He made it possible for us to get tires,  lol yes new $345 total cost.

Someone might think this is a stupid thing to write but,  I am not ashamed to thank God for the overtime my husband had that enable us to spend over$300 that we did not have. The Lord,  our beautiful loving Father always,  I mean always,  comes through for us.

I told you previously how our Father saved us from losing our home.

I want to thanks, those they are very few but follow me and remember how God did that in the nick of time.

Well,  tires on,  Toby my sweet husband made a bed in the back seat so I will not hurt too much as he drives 10 or 11 hours long drive.

I had a serious back surgery 6 months ago and I am healing but the pain is there. Its OK I don’t feel sorry for myself, no need too.

Well,  I do have Georgia on my mind tonight,

Later,

Pat.

 

Waiting

Waiting is always connected to a promise
When we are in the process of waiting it means that we have an expectation, and we anticipate a wonderful end but this end was based on a promise we received. The promise we receive is both a seed and a harvest. When we first get a promise it is actually in seed form, and then we have to wait a while before we can see that seed turn into a harvest hence the reason for the waiting process. In other words, our waiting is based on an expectation of the seed turning into a harvest. A mother expects a baby after she gets the news that she is pregnant, and she then starts to get excited. She starts eating carefully, she starts thinking about the color of the baby room, and though her tummy is still flat she now has a hope and expectation for the end result. When a woman gets engaged, her ring is the seed that the harvest of marriage is coming, and she starts with great anticipation to prepare the way in advance for the happy ever after with the perfect guy. When a man is granted his first business loan it is the seed that he will one day reap a harvest of owning a multimillion dollar corporation. So you see everything we are waiting on began with a seed. 

In life sometimes we lose track of the promise, and when we do our waiting process becomes hard, long, laborious, and frustrating. We tend to blame God for the delay, and we can even become rebellious towards God and the people we do life with. The bible tells us there is seed time and there is harvest time, and this suggests that between the seed and the harvest, there is the thing called “TIME”. Maybe you are in this place where you are losing faith, growing weary, and frustrated and you feel like running ahead of God but I want to encourage you to hold on, go back to the promise God gave you in seed form and envision the harvest. What does it look like? What were your desires, dreams, and vision when God gave you the seed?

Take a few moments today meditating on the seed God gave you and see hope arise again, God is good on His promises, and He will never fail you even though it may be taking longer than you expected. Many people give up halfway, they turn their backs on their dreams and vision because they became hopeless. Hope helps us carry on when life gets rough; to hope means to have a joyful confident expectation of good and the only way we can maintain hope is by holding on to the promises of God. The main reason people take their lives is that they were convinced all hope was gone and the enemy loves to keep people hopeless. Our God is a God of hope so please go back to your promise and be revived again!

Hope is called the anchor of the soul (Hebrews 6:19) because it gives stability to the Christian life. But hope is not simply a ‘wish’ (I wish that such-and-such would take place); rather, it is that which latches onto the certainty of the promises of the future that God has made. –
