God Kept Me


There have been times in my life when I thought I would completely loose my mind, but God kept me sane.


Isaiah 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.




At times in my life, I felt I couldn't go on, but the Lord kept me moving on.




Genesis 28:15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.




Oh so many times I wanted to lash out at those who did me wrong, but the Lord kept my mouth shut.





Psalm 13
How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.




Sometimes it seems I just don't have enough money for all my bills, but God the lights on, the water on, the car insurance paid, everything needed paid.




Matthew 6:25-34 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?




Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.




Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?




(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.




But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.




Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.




How many times can I count where I thought I would fall down and he kept me from falling.




1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.




As my body grew weak, he strengthened me.




Matthew 11:28-30 28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.




Oh, what a marvelous God to keep us even when were unworthy.

Lance, You are not unworthy. God Loves you more than you can ever imagine, but to reach His love, you must first of all be able to enter into your own heart. To reach Him, you must first reach your own within Being. We are never apart of God. Like Jesus has said " He and I we are One"." I am the Son and the Father in itself". Jesus show us the way, but we are walking still without see it, isn't...? The way is not the God that lives outside us. But like Jesus have been showing for centuries, the way can only be the God within us. Finding our own divinity. Being always humble, peacefull and lovable with all beings. Some of us are ready to start to be an example, like Jesus was, but... will it be that the rest of us are willing to finaly wake up of this blindness sleep and awakening, taking the responsability of true of who they really are? Are you ready to hold the true of your Being?
