Why me?

Job 42: 1 – 2 “Then Job replied to the LORD:  ‘I know that YOU can do all things; no plan of Yours can be thwarted.’
Each day comes with its own challenges and normal day to day living brings its own challenges.  I think of the story of this man named Job.  He was wealthy and had great children, then to change things up a little disaster struck him, his family and even in his body.
As I think of my life I recall something Job said to his wife Job 2: 10 But Job replied, “You talk like a foolish woman.  Should we accept only good things from the hand of God and never anything bad?”  So in all this, Job said nothing wrong.
Sitting here I ask the question, Why me?  Why do I suffer and why do I have pain, why is it that everything I put my hand to just doesn't work out the way I think it should.  I look at my surrounding and see the people around me, plain sailing. 
I am working and the job am doing isn't plain sailing, and there is no respect between the people I work with.  I fee…

Daily Devotion

Please pray with me and help me identify the right name for my Daily Devotion book I am currently writing.  I need God's, wisdom and insight and most of all understanding.  I want to ask that you will pray with me, asking God to reveal to me What the name of my book should be and also that it will be words of wisdom, that God wants to reveal through me to you and other people.

Abba Father, Lord God, You know my hearts desires and Lord You know what is best for me, I pray and with friends on Blogger I am asking You, Lord please guide me and show me what the name of my Daily Devotion should be.  This I pray humbly in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen

Lord! Help me not to sit with scornful people!

“If you love someone, you will … always believe in him.”  1 Corinthians 13: 7
David a young shepherded boy came to see his brothers who were in battle against the Philistines.  David believed in God and I felt so sure that God would help him stand up against Goliath.
Now David’s brother Eliab was upset that this youngster came along, being full of himself he must have thought.  Telling everybody that he (David) was going to get this Philistine, and Eliab confronted David saying “Why have you come down?  And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness?  I know your insolence and the wickedness of your heart; for you have come down in order to see the battle.’
Eliab’s name actually means “God is my Father” so in actual fact I believe Eliab has great authority over the Philistine, he just didn’t believe that it was the case.  David on the other had felt he was circumcised and because of the covenant with God, David knew that God would be on David’s side.
This whole episode rem…

"Thorn in my side"

As I sit here today I am thinking about a famous person someone you also know, perhaps even better than I do.  The Apostle Paul, and as I think about this man who done so many wonderful things and wonders in the name of the Lord Jesus I am reminded of something he had to deal with on a daily basis.  “The thorn in his side”, we do not know what the so called “thorn” was, but we do know it kept Paul on his knees.
Each person’s life is different and we do not know the journey we need to take in getting to our destination.  My journey right now is really not that easy, I seem to embark on the most difficult of tasks and so many times very humbling too. 
My “thorn” right now is really a part time job I have taken to supplement my income.  I have seen and it is really funny how God has been working miracles for me each day.  The one thing I am sure of is that God keeps His eye on me.  Some days I find that…
