    The Journey from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the journey of life. Our thinking is often consumed with what is happening today, or tomorrow, or sometimes what happened yesterday. God thinks in the long term. He can see our entire life at once. Think of it like t...

    'He said to another, 'Follow me!' But he said, 'Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father.' But Jesus said to him, 'Leave the dead to bury their own dead, but you go and announce the Kingdom of God.' Another also said, 'I want to follow you, Lord, but first allow me to bid farewell to those who ...

    And on the seventh day God finished his work that He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work that He had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all His work that He had done in creation. Genesis 2:2 ESVAfter coming home from church, ...

Lost And Found

  • Yahweh's angel found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain on the way to Shur. He said, 'Hagar, Sarai's servant, where did you come from? Where are you going?' She said, 'I am fleeing from the face of my mistress Sarai.' Genesis 16:7 WEB

    Hagar wandered alone in the desert. She had always done what she was told, but now it had become too much and she had ran from the painful life that she knew. She was pregnant, having to care for herself, and far away from where she should have been in life.

    Hagar means: 'A stranger; one that fears.' She was an outsider in her own house. The Angel of the Lord found her lost in the desert and told her to return and submit because God had plans for her and her unborn child.

    Even when Hagar did everything wrong, God found her and took care of her. He spoke of her future, and took her mind off the pain in her past. She broke down and called the Lord: 'You are the God who sees me.'

    Each time I have messed up and later returned to the Lord in prayer, He spoke about the future, not about the past. If you miss the Lord, He will find you. We often worry too much and ask: 'Is this what God wants me to do?' until we get paralyzed and do nothing at all. You cannot steer a car that is not moving, but once it starts moving, then you can correct its course.

    When we get stalled in life, we pray and then try and make the best decision. Sometimes it ends with: 'Lord, unless you tell us no, then we are going to do this.' For when you get off course, He will bring you back with a word (Isaiah 30:21).

    If you feel that the Lord wants you do something but you have been held back because you may be wrong, or you have run away from it, know that He will always find you. The Lord still seeks out those that are lost.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for Your forgiveness. Help me get back on my feet and give me the grace to stand strong for I cannot do this without You. I give you permission to pull me back up and push me forward when I stall. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Good morning! We will be continuing to the next chapter of our online Bible Study tomorrow morning, but for those who would like to catch up, here is the link to all of the chapters. You are welcome to start any time :)! Bible Study

Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for Your forgiveness. Help me get back on my feet and give me the grace to stand strong for I cannot do this without You. I give you permission to pull me back up and push me forward when I stall. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Father help me to stop looking back at our past and start looking forward to all your blessings in our future. Soften my heart and help me hold onto forgiveness that is freely given in Christ. Release the burden of bitterness and contentiousness from my heart and help this house live in harmony once again Renew and refresh my spirit, Lord, and forgive me for any crabby attitude... Help me choose joy and gratitude once again and help me show my husband he is loved so he can be lifted too. In Jesus name Amen. Thank you Pastor, once again, you have hit the nail straight on the head and I needed that today <3 God bless

Oh Lord, it was Your mighty arm that brought salvation unto me! I stand in awe of You, You created all things, and yet You took pity on me and loved me so much even before I was born! I will never be able to repay what you have done, but I pledge my love and my life to You! Please stay with me, lead me and guide me, for I cannot live without You! I thank You and praise Your holy name, in the mighty name of Jesus I pray, Amen!
