Isn't It Wonderful?

Isn't it wonderful to finally have peace and knowing where God wants you to go? I have prayed and prayed about where to go next year. I have been reading the word and God has been giving me verses along the way. And this weekend I had a couple of verses again showing me that Mt. Zion is where I need to be. God will work out everything for me to go. Last night while I was laying in bed I was wondering could God's word really lead me in that way. And what do you know the verse from Psalms came into my head and kinda gave me a reminder..."Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path!" Talk about some peace that came into my heart! How Great God Is!!

To Know the Love of Jesus

Last night on my way home from singing with my youth group at the nursing home. I was kind of feeling sorry for myself. I was the only one without a boyfriend or the One! (I should say) Well I asked Jesus just to take the lonliness in my heart to fill it with Him. I needed Manna! I knew only that could satisfy my longing! This morning during my quiet time with God I came upon this verse
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:19)
I was like Omw!!! The love of Christ and the fullness of God! That's exactly what I needed for my lonely heart! God is so awesome and so loving

Looking Up to Jesus should I start this....I don't want to sound like I am desperate to have a boyfriend. Even thought sometimes my heart desperatly cries "When God? When?" But the Spirit inside of me is like "Set your affection on things above." Look to Jesus..let him be your wholeness in this lonliness. Oh it is so hard sometimes! You look around and you see other couples. I always have to remind myself "Your day is coming Tiffany!" I know God is trying to teach me patience and to get my heart totally focused on Him. I know I have a work to do for him. But this flesh wants to focus on the things at hand. That is all the flesh can see. But the spirit sees the things that are eternal and life everlasting! For we walk by faith and not by sight. We should ask for blinders on our eyes. So we won't look to the left and to the right, but straight at Him! I know my Man is coming. Right now though I have to look to Jesus. He is the only one who can satisfy the deepest longing and desire in the heart!

My Daily Bread

Yesterday during church while our youth minister was preaching I had a thought. Back in the old testament it talks about how when the children of Israel needed food. God sent them Manna every day. They only needed to gather what they needed for that day except on the Sabbath. I had a "wow" thought. I was like Jesus is our daily bread..we need him every day. His mercy is NEW every morning. We need to renew ourselves in Him each day. We need to hunger after Him. Even if we are in a wilderness or if we are on top of the mountain. Now I am not saying you have to go pray 2 or 3 hours on your knees or read a book of the Bible every day. But just continually lifting up your heart. So he can feed you and renew you...strengthen you. I need, we need him more than anything right now. Times are getting so hard. We will need him to lean on, to draw strength. He is our resevior...Oh Lord give me more and more!
