I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble, and you will answer me.

How magnificent is it that we have a Father whose love is so unfailing that throughout the span of the universe, the entire galaxy, He knows right where we are, what we are up against and exactly what we need. Even when it would seem that we are all alone, even when it would be that we have become weak of heart and cannot see the way before us, He still stands, ever ready, to breathe His very life and perspective into each and every moment of our lives. With such unfailing love and compassion lavished upon us in a world that is desperately lacking, why then wouldn’t we call out to God in each and every situation we face and seek out His heart, vision and perspective?  It would seem the most natural response to one who is aware of the goodness and fullness that resides within His very being. 

 “I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble, and you will answer me.” Psalm 86:7


Don’t you care is often the question that crosses many a mind in times of trouble, just like it did with the disciples when they were in the boat and with Martha in her reproach of Mary’s decision that day. For all things were made by Him and for Him and in Him all things find their meaning.  We desire to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we are not alone and that someone truly cares.  Sometimes it does not even take a trying circumstance to bring us to this point. Sometimes it is the everyday weight of a heavy workload bearing down upon us.


Just as Jesus rebuked Martha in her reproach of Mary’s decision that day, so did He with the disciples on the boat. And here is the thing….He did not rebuke these people because He did not care. Quite the contrary, He has a heart filled with love and compassion that we have not yet even seen the depths of – for them and for us. What He addressed, what He rebuked in those encounters was a spirit of unbelief that was attempting to take root within the soil of their hearts.


Do we choose to believe that God is who He says He is? Do we agree and partner with the word He speaks over our lives? Does it take root deep, down within us?  Or when the times of trial come does that seed merely get blown out upon the wind? Do we forget that Jesus is riding the wave with us and His voice and very word can still even the most insurmountable force; this Jesus Christ who lives within you.

Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
