How long, O Lord, how long?

9/30/10 You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book. Psalm 56:8. God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew5:4. - It is a beautiful thing when a broken man cries out to God. Then after the cry, you wait.- I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned to me and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1. WHEN THE DARKNESS WILL NOT LIFT – JOHN PIPER This has been a difficult year Lord with my marriage in the beginning of the year struggling then growing, with Trinity falsely accused of assault in teen court but charges for that dropped, with Jimmy losing his job but starting his own business looking for full time work, with my brother and I losing our close relationship over choices we had to make for the benefit of our own families, with Josh ticketed for breaking curfew and awaiting trial, with me losing my job but blessed to be a help meet to Jimmy right now, with Sean leaving for Naval boot camp but graduating mid October, with Cindy leaving for the Philippines and to go to school in Victorville to make a positive life change. All year I have cried out to You and You have heard and I have waited and You have answered. You are so faithful.

What is the great work of Christ outside of us?

9/29/10 Justification is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, to the glory of God alone. Romans3:28,4:4-5. WHEN THE DARKNESS WILL NOT LIFT – JOHN PIPER . Lord in Your grace You extend Your loving hand towards me. Lord in faith I accept all You have done for me. Lord only You and Your perfect sacrifice justifies me. Lord help me to give glory to You in all I think, say and do today. http;//

How do I give to God’s work?

9/28/10Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21. A treasure of my heart I give time to is sitting here in the morning hours, in the word, in prayer, watching the birds fly about, the tree sway in the breeze, the sun shine against the pale blue sky. A treasure of my heart I give love, honor, and cherishing to is falling asleep next to my husband for the last 19 years. A treasure of my heart I give prayer to is my son Sean saying he is reading the word. A treasure of my heart I give my tithe to is so that my son Josh can step away from friends at camp and step forward in worship. A treasure of my heart that shares so many of my talents is my daughter Trinity desiring to make a change in her life and stepping out to go where You call her to. A treasure of my heart that supports the spreading of the gospel is my daughter Cindy returning from the Philippines where she saw God's hand work in the lives of those with far less than us. Help me to recognize and be thankful for all the treasure You have given me instead of striving for the temporal treasure of this world.

How do I wait on God?

9/24/10 Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act. Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper-it only leads to harm. For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land. Psalm 37:7-9. Lord I fail to be still. I scurry about trying to fix it in my own way and then I bring the broken pieces to You to ask You to fix it instead of waiting. When I bring to mind the wicked schemes by the evil people against me I do have anger, rage and I lose my temper. Forgive me Lord when I harm others with my words that burden their souls. I trusted You the day these schemes took place, I trust You today as I feel the effects of these schemes, and I will trust you in the future when I see how You turned these schemes for the good because I love You.

How can I understand the leading of the Lord?

9/23/10The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring. Isaiah58:11. Thank You Lord for the pictures Your word gives me to help me understand who You are and how You lead. You are the lamp to my feet and the light to my path to lead me. You are the living water to lead me out of the dry spots in my life. You lead me to do all things through Your strength, not my own. You are the vine and I am the branch in Your well-watered garden through Your word and prayer. You are an ever-flowing spring that through all things gives me life abundantly.

How can I handle condemnation?

9/22/10So there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. Romans8:1. Thank You Lord there is no condemnation for me now that I am in You. I know that doesn't mean I won't be excluded, hated, mocked, or cursed because the world condemned You I know I too will at times be condemned. But when I am persecuted and rejected for who I am in You, I have peace knowing there is no condemnation the world can give that will ever separate You from me. Thank You Lord.

PLEASE PRAY for Cindy’s second half of the mission team returning tonight. For safety and joy for my parents and Cindy remaining in the Philippines another week-How can I be an effective witness?

9/21/10 The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; and those who wins souls is wise. Proverbs 11:30. Lord give me opportunities to be an effective witness by giving good deeds, give me wisdom to see and act on them when You do. I pray I bring life to all I come in contact with today. My primary purpose here is to give You glory and share that glory with souls in need of You. Lord I desire to be the good seed-sower, the life giver, the wise winner of souls.

PLEASE PRAY for Cindy’s remaining mission team in the Philippines at the pastors’ conference to have God’s guidance and wisdom – How can I have an effective prayer life?

9/20/10If two or three of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. Matthew 18:19. Lord I come before You trusting and believing Your word that You will answer prayer. I ask all who read this to join in prayer for my friend suffering. I pray for strength, peace and hope that can only be found in You. I pray that through this You become real in their life and that You could bring healing and renewed life. The pain their eyes as they spoke to me broke my heart and I just ask for You to continue to chase after this one You love.

PLEASE PRAY for Cindy to have life changes on the second half of her mission trip and safety for the mission team returning home- How can I have true service?

9/17/10If any of you want to be my follower, you must turn from selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow Me. If you try to hang on to your life you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. Mark8:34-35. I want to have true service as a follower of Christ by turning from self pleasing and turning to pleasing Christ. Lord help me to take up my cross in what only You give me to bear not on all things I put upon myself to do. Lord I hold my life with an open hand. I know my days are numbered and you know their end. I desire to give up my life for You because without You everything is meaningless, but in a life of service for You I am saved and have purpose.

PLEASE PRAY for those on Cindy’s mission team preparing to return and the last evening crusade in Langkaan – How do I find contentment?

9/16/10"So don't worry about these things, saying 'What will eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?'These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything You need. So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today." Matthew6:31-34. I can find contentment that lasts a lifetime by not worrying about having my needs met. I am seeking to follow You Lord with all my heart, soul, and strength. I want the words of my mouth and thoughts of my heart to reflect a life that outlives me. Help me to stay focused on the tasks before me today and trust You for the rest.

PLEASE PRAY for Cindy’s mission team in the Philippines as open market evangelize and for salvation and healing at the evening crusade in Molino – How can I have God’s divine protection?

9/15/10The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord. Proverbs 21:31. Lord I desire Your divine protection for me, for my husband, for my children. I prepare for the battles that lie ahead by being in Your word, in prayer, in fellowship. I prepare by laying up my treasure in heaven through using my time, tithe, and talent for You. Protect me from allowing my thoughts, words and actions to stray from Your purpose for me. Protect husband Jimmy's health and give him strength as he does his intrinsic work today. Protect my son Sean, who received his first Navy paycheck today, as he is at boot camp. Protect my son Joshua, who takes the ASVAP test for the military today, as he decides on a career field in the military. Protect my daughter Trinity, who is trying to make a life change, to stay strong in that. Protect Cindy, who has opened her heart and mind to serve You, to have and see life changing miracles. We all already have victory in You, Lord.

PLEASE PRAY Cindy’s mission team in the Philippines to show God’s love for each student at the schools they visit this morning, for salvation and healing at the evening crusade in Bacoor, Cavite – How can I face old age?

9/14/10For we don't live for ourselves or die for ourselves. If we live, it's to honor the Lord. And if we die, it's to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Romans14:7-8. As I face old age Lord I want to live out my days for You. Lord I want my life to be looked back on when I pass as a life lived for You. Lord I didn't honor You with my youth. But you took who I was and made me who I am now. You have allowed me 20 more years from the darkest point in my life. As I am almost a month shy of my 38th birthday, I pray that whatever age I am finds me closer to You and my life spent honoring You outlives my death. Thank You Lord for today.

PLEASE PRAY for Cindy’s mission team at a pastor’s conference today and God’s wisdom and guidance for healing and salvation at the evening crusade in Bugnan –How can I be established in trust?

9/13/10 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose. Romans8:28. I know because time and again God has shown Himself faithful and I can trust Him. He has patiently showed me how all things, really ALL things, work together for good; maybe not how, when or why I wanted. But I keep loving Him and He continues to achieve His purpose in me. In God I trust.    

Friday, September 10, 2010

PLEASE PRAY for God to guide Cindy’s mission team open market evangelizing by day and crusade in Camachile tonight – How do I enter into God’s rest?

9/10/11 Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will help you. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice for your cause will shine like the noonday sun. Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act. Don't worry about evil people that prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Psalm 37:5-7. I can rest when I commit everything I am doing to You Lord. I can rest when I am still enough to hear You speak to my heart, to see Your beauty in nature, to smell the change of the seasons in the air, to taste the food You provided for our family, and to touch my loved ones here with me. I can rest when I wait patiently for You to act; when I hold it all with a open hand and know that I have no control over others thoughts, words or actions. I can rest when I don't worry about why others seem to get away with so much and the trials surrounding my family seem to overwhelm, You see, You know, and You will act in Your good time. Thank You Lord.

PLEASE PRAY for Cindy’s Philippine mission team to boldly witness as God guides their door to door evangelizing today; for salvation and healing at the evening crusade in Bantog. – How can I maintain hope?

9/9/10 The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:22-23. Even though the love the world has shown me ends, Your love never does. Even though the words and actions of my enemies seem to be relentless, Your mercy for me never ceases. Even though things may seem great and stable in the world's eyes, Your faithfulness to me is the greatest. Even though one thing after another as the day wears on tries to chip away at who I am in You, I am a child of God; Your mercy for me is new this morning. I admit I failed yesterday, I believe You have what I need today, I confess You are the hope I need for tomorrow.    

Wednesday, September 8, 2010


9/8/10Then Jesus said," Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. "Matthew 11:28. I can overcome despair Lord because You take the time each day to speak to me and I am so blessed. I forget any despair I might have had as I come into Your presence each morning and dig into Your word. I become weary of the onslaught of trial after trials. I carry the heavy burdens of what I could have, should have, and would have done. Only in You Lord do I have the rest of knowing all works for the good of those who love You and You have called to Your purpose.    

Tuesday, September 7, 2010


9/7/10Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10. I can stress Lord because I fear the unknown. I can stress Lord because I am discouraged because I don't understand how this will all work out. Yet You tell me You are the I AM…the I am that is with me, the I am that is my God. You strengthen me when I am weak. You help me when I am hurt. You hold me up when I feel like I am drowning in despair. Lord I can handle stress by giving it over to You because the victory over it is Yours. I am not alone.

How can I survive financial problems?

9/3/10How can I survive financial problems? Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or to have everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:11-13. Even though I may have felt I was in need, I have always had enough. I have learned to be content because I have learned that things come and go but my Lord never leaves or forsakes me and is what I have no matter what. Lord You know that my heart is to right by You. I don't have the strength to make it through this day without You. As financial problems overshadow, protect my marriage from bitterness, protect my kids from worry, and provide the way for us to have just enough to satisfy our needs to not deny You in riches or steal in poverty. (Proverbs 30:8)

How can I handle suffering?

9/2/10How can I handle suffering? So then, since Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm yourselves with the same attitude He had, and be ready to suffer, too. For if you have suffered physically with Christ, you have finished with sin. You won't spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do His will. 1 Peter4:1-2. Lord I don't think You ask us to approach the day looking for how we might suffer but inevitably suffering finds us and You ask us to be ready. Be in the word to know what You want to say to comfort. Be in prayer to ask in Your name for the things I need and want. Be using my time to do Your will. Be tithing to Your ministry. Be using my talent to share You. I am so anxious to do Your will today, help me not fall back into sin or frantically chase what's for me. Help me walk alongside You since You know where I am going.

In the begining God.
God says come to Me and I will give you rest.
Jesus Christ is the Prince pf peace. Jesus is our hope.

How can I face serious illness?

9/1/10How can I face serious illness? He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By His wounds you are healed. 1 Peter 2:24. I don't understand the purpose for serious illness except that somehow through it You give us the ability to live right in the sight of others which gives glory to You. This doesn't make it any less painful, less exhausting, or less depressing. You suffered pain as You were beaten, scourged, and crowned with thorns. You were exhausted as you carried Your cross to Your crucifixion. You faced oppression and didn't become depressed but said, "Father forgive they don't know what they are doing." Thank You that serious illness here doesn't change my eternal healing of salvation because You have healed my most serious illness of sin Thank You.
