Put Together Your Heart

Psalm 86:11-17 Train me, GOD, to walk straight; then I'll follow your true path. Put me together, one heart and mind; then, undivided, I'll worship in joyful fear. From the bottom of my heart I thank you, dear Lord; I’ve never kept secret what you're up to. You've always been great toward me—what love! You snatched me from the brink of disaster! God, these bullies have reared their heads!
A gang of thugs is after me— and they don't care a thing about you. But you, O God, are both tender and kind, not easily angered, immense in love, and you never, never quit. So look me in the eye and show kindness, give your servant the strength to go on, save your dear, dear child! Make a show of how much you love me so the bullies who hate me will stand there slack-jawed, as you, GOD, gently and powerfully put me back on my feet.

Dear Friend:
When my youngest daughter was 6 years old she wrote silly kid songs and would walk around singing them. I kept them and one had the words repeated over and over “Put Together, Put Together your heart.” I saw the above verse and it reminded me of her song. Putting together our heart and mind with God’s word creates energy for us to live! What a heart cry from the above Psalmist.

I’m looking you in the eye and showing you kindness, giving you strength to go on! I’m snatching you from the brink of disaster and the bullies! -GOD-

Let’s pray: Father in heaven put together my heart and help me to experience FREEDOM.
Thanks you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Putting together,

Jumble Puzzles

My grandma passed away last night around 845p. Yes, that is my mom’s mom, 89 years old. I was with her and she fought the good fight. She was as sweet as can be. Had actually a beautiful day with her.
As I sat with my grandma yesterday in the morning. She was still coherent and holding my hand. My sister had given me a verse the day before Phil 4:8. It is a famous verse and I always used the verse for my children saying “Philippians 4:8 that TV show, movie, music.” I even caught my son saying to his sister “Philippians 4:8 that show.”
Philippians 4:8 8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
I had been caring my mom’s bible to read passage to Grandma and saying “oh mom marked this and that.” I looked up Phil. 4:8 and my mom did not have that verse marked but she had verse:
Philippians 4:9 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
I had my computer with me and just being filled with such joy knowing I was sitting in the right place comforting my Grandma, I began to play with the two verses. I will now call Phil. 4:9 my “Learn, Receive, Hear, put it into practice” verse. If you put it into practice the results will be, “The peace of God will be with you.” When I was young, I was the Jumble queen in my home. I could get the newspaper and do the word jumbles in no time. I loved that my mind worked so fast. Philippians 4 the verse eight has 8 things we are advised to think on, so I took the beginning of each word and tried to come up with a word so that I could remember the 8 things I should think on each day. Here is what I can only come up with “TRANPPLE” I thought of “APPLE-NRT.” Wish it could have been a word.
Pray with me: Father in Heaven may I today remember the things that you would want me to think on. Thank you for my Grandma’s life. As I learn, receive and hear from you may I have the courage to put it into practice. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Love from above,

Fear Not

My pledge not to fear circumstances or man. May this become your pledge too!
Lord you are light,
Shall I fear?
My heart shall not fear.
Though war may rise against me,
I am fully armored,
My weapons are up,
I am standing firm
With my feet firmly planted on the solid
Rock of Jesus Christ.
The Lord is my helper;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
I am a conqueror through Him who loves me.
I will fear no evil for you are with me.
Nothing shall separate me from the Love of God.
I shall not be afraid of the terror at night,
Nor the arrow that flies by day,
Nor the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
Jesus takes fear!
I shall have angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways.
A thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand;
But it shall not come near me.
I shall be far from oppression, for I shall not fear;
And from terror for it shall not come near me.
I have a spirit of power, love and sound mind.
I do not have a spirit of bondage;
Again to fear. I received the
Spirit of adoption by whom I cry out “Abba, Father.”
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment.
I will not be tormented.
I am hidden in the secret place of the Most High
Under the shadow of the Almighty.
I am covered with His feathers, and under His wings I am taking refuge.
His truth shall be my shield and buckler.,
God is for me, who can be against me?
Neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate me from the love of God
Which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
