    For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEBWe have a proverb we live by when performing live music: "If you hit a bad note, hit it good."

    Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him. I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him, and honor him. I will satisfy him with long life, and show him my salvation.' Psalm 91...

    I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? Psalms 56:11 WEBI walked down the aisle at Church to the offering basket and dropped in my tithes for the week.

The Pursuit of Happiness

  • I love those who love Me. Those who seek me diligently will find Me. Proverbs 8:17 WEB

    I came out of my prayer room that morning feeling like I was walking on a cloud with tears of joy in my eyes. If you would have told me that the world was getting ready to explode, I would have said 'Let 'er blow!' I truly did not have a care in the world. An hour earlier, I felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders and I had too many problems to even start the day. I had not even wanted to get out of bed, and felt more like rolling over and covering my head with a pillow.

    Scripture reads: "You shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart' (Jeremiah 29:13). 'But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul' (Deuteronomy 4:29). So I say to you: 'Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you' (Luke 11:9).

    When you spend quiet time with the Lord, He will reveal new things to you, and take worrisome things off of you. Jesus sometimes spent the entire night alone in prayer (Luke 6:12). I know that Hebrews 13:5 tells us that 'He will never leave nor forsake you' and that is true, but there is a whole new level of living when you begin to actively seek Him instead of letting Him follow you. There is a level of joy, peace, love, and trust that nothing on earth can give you except the Lord's presence. True happiness is not found anywhere else.

    I encourage you today to stir up your relationship and actively pursue knowing the Lord Jesus. Spend some quiet time talking with Him, and invite the Holy Spirit to help you. Read or listen to the Bible for a while after praying. Building your relationship with Him is the ultimate pursuit of happiness and will unlock doors you never dreamed were there.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You draw my heart to You. Make what is important to You, important to me and let me see the world through Your eyes. Remove the things that hold me back, give me a clear vision, and a gentle push in the right direction to get started. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Ladies, today is Thankful Thursday at the "Ladies in Distress" group (our RHM women's group)!

Dear Father sometimes I feel like I have all the weight of the world on my shoulders, give me Your Holy Spirit to help me deal with this situation. That what is important to You be important to me, lead the way through the door You have opened for me. In Jesus name I pray, Amen. Lord guide us to be what You want us to be.
