Sorry that I haven’t been posting too much.

This year has been BUSY! Not that that is bad…it’s been good.

I always find it amazing when I read something in God’s word and then I hear something on the radio that is the exact same word (scripture). Today it was dealing with Stephen and his dissertation to the high priest.

I’m thinking — if I was in that situation, would I be able to do what Stephen did? I would like to think so…since it really wasn’t him but the Holy Spirit working through Him. He was in tune with the Holy Spirit. Why…he was full of FAITH and of the Holy Ghost. Full of faith.

FAITH – Strong’s Concordance:
1) conviction of the truth of anything, belief; in the NT of a conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, generally with the included idea of trust and holy fervour born of faith and joined with it

a) relating to God
1) the conviction that God exists and is the creator and ruler of all things, the provider and bestower of eternal salvation through Christ

b) relating to Christ
1) a strong and welcome conviction or belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through whom we obtain eternal salvation in the kingdom of God

c) the religious beliefs of Christians
d) belief with the predominate idea of trust (or confidence) whether in God or in Christ, springing from faith in the same

2) fidelity, faithfulness
a) the character of one who can be relied on

Later on it says POWER —

Can we still have this same FAITH and POWER today?

I Give Myself Away

I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me

Verse 1:
Here I am
Here I stand
Lord, my life is in your hands
Lord, I’m longing to see
Your desires revealed in me
I give myself away

Verse 2:
Take my heart
Take my life
As a living sacrifice
All my dreams all my plans
Lord I place them in your hands

My life is not my own
To you I belong
I give myself, I give myself to you

I Need Wisdom

November 17, 2007

If you need wisdom – if you want to know what God wants you to do – ask Him, and He will gladly tell you. But when you ask Him, be sure that you really expect Him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
James 1:5-6
