Keep the charge of the Lord your God, walk in His ways, keep His statutes, His commandments, His precepts,

and His testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may do wisely

and prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn,

1 Kings 2:3

When you pray, wait for the Lord. This means to look for, to expect, and to hope in God. This is not a passive state of mind, but one of expectancy.

Tell Him,”God, I have my hope in You. I believe that You are working on my problems. I believe that You are making arrangements for my day. You are posting angels all through out my walk, everywhere along my path where You already know I am going to walk today. Thank you, Lord, that you are a pioneer who has already gone before me and made a way for me to have a blessed day.”

But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!

2 Corinthians 12:9

Come apart and spend some time with God before you come apart. No matter how strong and healthy you are, no matter what your age is, no matter what you think you know, without God, you are going to get weary and tired.

God does not get tired, and the Word says He gives power to the faint and weary, and increases strength to those who have no might. But those who wait for the Lord, who expect, look for, and hope in Him, will be renewed (see Isaiah 40:29-31). God is willing to increase your strength. Get alone with Him anytime you need to be strengthened.

Prompt/Theme for Friday, January 16, 2009

This week’s prompt has two parts:

First, list at least one thing your husband did or said in the past week that reminded you why you love him. Everyone has to have at least one – even on a “bad week” – it doesn’t matter how big or how small! Nothing that touched your heart is insignificant!

And second, share a “Generous Wife Tip” – it can be on any subject – anything that you do or would like to do more often to make your husband feel loved and respected!

~One~

My hubby’s faith has made me smile this week. It seems like a small thing, but the strength of his faith makes mine stronger when I need it the most. His birthday was on Friday and I got made him a “love jar.” It is filled with strips of paper telling him why I love him, or why I respect him, some are just silly sayings, others are coupons on fake rose petals for foot rubs or other things, and others are just a  short little love notes. His reaction to the jar surprised me a lot. He loves it. He can not wait to make his daily pick out of the jar. He has already told me that he will be making me one. It really touched my heart the way he was so excited about a simple homemade gift.

~Two~

My Tip is tell your hubby every day not only that you love him, but you respect him and that you appreciate what he does for your family. He will appreciate this more than you know. You will be building up his spirit, his self esteem, and he will never have to question if you notice the hard work he does.

Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You

[progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with You, perceiving and recognizing and

understanding more strongly and clearly] and that I may find favor in Your sight. And [Lord, do] consider that this nation is Your people.

And the Lord said, My Presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.

Exodus 33:13-14


Everything we receive from God comes by faith. When you are waiting for Him to speak to your heart, just believe that He will speak to you, even if you do not hear anything right that minute.

Believe that because you have acknowledged Him, you can expect to see His hand moving in your life all day long. Then step forward, knowing  that He will keep you on the right path because you have asked Him to do so. Watching God’s hand of favor move on our behalf is one of life’s greatest delights.

The Lord is my Strength and Song; and He has become my Salvation.

The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents and private dwellings of the [uncompromisingly] righteous:

the right hand of the Lord does valiantly and achieves strength!

Psalm 118:14-15

Happiness is the results of a radical, outrageous relationship with God. If we want to walk in victory, we have to put some time into our relationship the Lord. There is much to discover about His plan for us.

Our contentment won’t last if we are not obeying God by seeking Him with our whole heart. God wants us to really talk to Him and pay attention to His answers. Spend enough time with Him this morning to walk in victory all day.

An Update on Jess

Well Jess has decided to stay till March so she can finish school. That is the best thing for her. She is a senior this year and if she were to come here she would be behind and not be able to graduate this year. She will be finished with school in March. Montana’s requirements are much more lax than Texas’ requirements for graduating. We told her, she is more than welcome to come here after school is finished. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

Psalm 90:14 NIV

This morning pray, “Lord, I am waiting for you to direct me.” While you honor the Lord by listening for His response, you may hear Him speak something specific to you right away. It may seem as though He inscribes direction in your spirit for the day. The devil may tell you that it wasn’t really God who spoke to you. Or while you are waiting to hear from God, Satan may tell you that you are wasting your time.

It is imporant to know the truth of God’s Word so that the direction God sows in your heart will not be snatched away from you through doubt. God may not lay out a blueprint for your day, but He will direct your path, if you acknowledge Him in all of your ways (see Proverbs 3:6).
