Run Your Race 

As I was praying and pondering what to write for this post, I kept thinking about what the Lord gave me to encourage our Prayer Team with at church. I believe the following scriptures will encourage you in your walk with the Lord.

Whatever God has called or told you to do, always remember that He is right there beside you to help you carry it through.

 Look at the first part of Genesis 18:14. It says, “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”.

Now look at the first part of Numbers 11:23.    “Is the Lord’s hand shortened?”

Sometimes we can get our eyes on ourselves and our inability to do something. 
We need to get our focus back on God! 

Whatever God has called or told us to do, He is NOT going to change His mind about it! 

Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 19:26: But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Whatever God has called or told you do, I urge you to get started on it! Even if it’s baby steps-start walking! Then at the end of your race, when you stand before the Lord you can say, “I glorified You on earth, having accomplished the work you gave me to do.” John 17:4.

                 In God’s Love,

My Dove 

I hear His Whisper… “My dove”

I call you My dove. I have hidden you in the split open rock. Into the wounds of Christ I have hidden you and will keep you secure. 

Why would you worry about a thing, when I have hidden you on high. You will see My glory and taste My grace. Mercy has fastened you to My throne and I will never let you go.

My cherishing love is upon you. You will never be able to say, “I am unloved,” for My love is set upon you. My Son was wounded so that you will be Mine. The Rock of Ages was split open to provide you a hiding place. 

Come away, My dove to your resting place on high. Though storms and winds blast at you, I will keep you safe. Though others ignore and resist you, you have moved My heart. Fly to your resting place, dove of My heart, and you will discover who I truly am. No earthly thing is needed when you are at My side. 

Don’t say, “I have a need,” but say, “I have all that I need when I have You.”

Song of Songs 2:14 The Passion Translation
For you are my dove, hidden in the split-open rock.

It was I who took you and hid you up high

in the secret stairway of the sky.

Let me see your radiant face and hear your sweet voice.

How beautiful your eyes of worship

and lovely your voice in prayer.
