week 8 - Trust in him

Week 8 Challenge Word:


Think of how Jochebed (Moses’ mother) had to completely trust God as she put Moses in the papyrus basket in the Nile. Read more about it in Exodus 2:1-10. Wow, do you or I trust Him that much? How about our children that want to go off to foreign countries to be missionaries? Do we trust Him that much to let them go to do His work? Do we have doubts? Of course we are scared. Of course we have doubts. It’s our human nature. Well thankfully, our great and awesome God is worthy of our complete trust! We need to let go, and let God! Turn to Him.Trust Him as your ever-present guide for today and everyday. You can pray daily that He increase your trust in Him. Read His Word. We can trust it! The Bible is His revelation to us so we can know Him!

As I studied this week, I came across this wonderful devotional in my Bible. It was an amazing devotion, and I thought I would share it with you. I not only love this hymn but I now have a new understanding and love for ’Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus'.

The devotion reads:“In the late 1800’s, Mrs. Louisa M.R. Stead watched as her husband died while trying to save a drowning boy. This familiar hymn was written as a response to her struggle with the ‘why?’ questions she asked God during that difficult time.

‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus,Just to take Him at His word,Just to rest upon His promise,Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord.

”I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;And I know that Thou art with me,Wilt be with me to the end.

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!O for grace to trust Him more!--Louisa M.R. Stead

What an amazing trust. Learn to trust Him. Take Him at His word. He was there for you yesterday, He is there for you today, and He will be there for you tomorrow.

I've learned to Trust in the Almighty for all things, all things work for the best in GOD..... Her is my Layout for the week 8 - for the 52 week Scripture Challenge hosted by Patter on FOOS (Faith of our Sisters) a wonderful site to be a part of.... Psalm 4:5 -New International Version

Trusting in my All Mighty, Glad was great for me this week - I'm so Glad i'm not were I am, But sure GLAD to see what GOD has instore for me....

Scripture Challenge - Week 7 -Glad -front

Week 7 Challenge Word: Glad
I was so glad to see God at work! He really told me He would take this challenge far and wide, and He did. Wow!Anyway, as I began to study this word, I first decided to look up the synonym for “glad.” Here is what I found: animated, beaming, beautiful, blithesome, bright, can't complain, cheerful, cheering, cheery, contended, delighted, delightful, exhilarated, felicitous, gay, genial, gleeful, gratified, gratifying, hilarious, hopped up, jocund, jovial, joyful, joyous, lighthearted, merry, mirthful, overjoyed, pleasant, pleased, pleasing, radiant, rejoiced, sparkling, tickled, tickled pink up, willing. Wow, so now what do I study after a list of 39 words like that? Then I looked up the word glad in my Vine’s Concise Dictionary of the Bible. It says “rejoicing, being glad, to be glad, rejoice greatly, exceeding joy, most delighted.” I thought those were great definitions.I decided to focus on my days. Some days are rough, some are relaxing, some make me just want to crawl on the couch and stay there, and some are filled with tremendous joy. Do you ever have those “Monday morning blues,” or feel down on a rainy day, or have the winter blahs? Well, look at what God has done around you. What makes you feel glad to be called His precious daughter? How are you showing others that you are glad to be His? What one thing can you find each and every day that makes you feel glad to be His? Each day He gives us is a gift. We can be glad and enjoy what He has for us each day.
Here is my scripture challenge for week 7 - GLAD - Front and back..

Happy Sunday and Be Blessed -

Challenge from Faith of out Sisters.....
Matthew 6:21 Challenge
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” ~ Matthew 6:21
This week, create a layout using Matthew 6:21
In reading through and studying the Sermon on the Mount, my heart has been challenged to really think through and evaluate if my heart is seeking after self or after a real, relationship with God. In a lot of ways, we put on masks and faces so people perceive us as spiritual or godly. In reality, deep in our heart of hearts or in our private life, we struggle with fears, temptations, and desiring the things of the world for man’s praise instead of glorifying God. Jesus directly addresses the heart by asking the question, “Where is your treasure?” He says in Matthew 6:21, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” There are a lot of things vying for your heart, as this is the control center for life.

Today I didn't make it to church but I did listen to the service and .... I just wat to thank GOD for all that he has done for me and in my life.... Reading thru my bible. I came across this passage that was adapted from Matthews 14:28-30...

**** Jesus, I pray that I will be like Peter and always trust You enough to step out in Faith when you call. Help me to keep my Faith strong and not doubt.....

What a powerful passage in the Joyce Meyers - Everyday life Bible (1514) it's under Speak the word.
