Prayer Alert!

To anyone who happens to find their way here, I am asking you to join me in praying for Stellan McKinney, a precious 5 month baby boy who is having heart surgery even as I type. His mother is Jennifer, known as "MckMama" on her very popular blog "My Charming Kids". If you haven't read his story, you should. This sweet baby boy is a miracle and his family are big time Jesus lovers with a beautiful testimony of God's grace and strength in the midst of uncertainty.

One of the scriptures I am praying over them today.....

"Blessed be the Lord who daily bears our burden, the God who is our salvation. Our God is to us a God of deliverances. To God the Lord belong escapes from death." Psalm 68:19-20

They need our prayers...would you join me?

Going boldly to the throne.....

Just as He said...

"The angel said.....He is not here, for He is risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying." Matt. 28:6

They didn't remember. On several occassions Jesus had told His followers of His predestined death and resurrection (Matt. 16:21), but they didn't remember. Fear...despair...worry... have a way of doing that to us don't they? We forget His words....His very sure words. How ironic that those who hated Jesus remembered what He said (Matt. 27:63), but not His sheep.

Like the angel who reminded the women at the tomb that He had risen, "just as He said", the Holy Spirit reminds me of a few "just as He saids"......

Your needs will be met (Phil 4:19)...just as He said.

He is your stability (Isaiah 33:6)....just as He said.

He will never leave you (Matt. 28:20)...just as He said.

He's listening to you (Psalm 116:1-2)....just as He said.

He is for you (Psalm 118:6)...just as He said.

His righteousness is yours (2 Cor. 5:21)...just as He said.

As we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, may we remember what He has said to us and not only remember, but believe Him! His word is as sure as the resurrection! Praise His glorious name!

Celebrating our Risen Lord......

The Glorious Impossible

Here are just a few of the Glorious Impossibles that I have been meditating on the last few days...

A New Life.....Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17

Reconciled to God....For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Romans 5:10

His righteousness is ours...God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Cor. 5:21

A Holy God dwells within us....Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? 1 Cor. 6:19

The power of the resurrection works within us....I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms...Eph. 1:18-20

Access to the throne of the King of Kings...Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Heb. 4:12

Every need supplied...And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:19

How great is our God? He faithfully, lovingly, consistantly makes the impossible....possible! Now take a few minutes and have yourself a little mini-worship service as you watch the video.

Worshiping with you.....
