    He said, "Go out, and stand on the mountain before Yahweh." Behold, Yahweh passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before Yahweh; but Yahweh was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake; but Yahweh was not in the earthquake. After the e...

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. Hagar had run away from the painful life. She was pregnant, caring for herself, and far away from where she should have been.

    Hagar means: "A stranger; one that fears." She was an outsider in her own house. The Angel of the Lord found Hagar wandering lost in the desert and told her to return home and submit. 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 about her future and took her mind off the pain of her past. Hagar 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 can't steer a car that isn't 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." When you get off course, He will bring you back with a word (Isaiah 30:21).

    If you feel that the Lord wants you to 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 who are lost.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your forgiveness. Please help me get back on my feet and give me the grace to stand strong, for I can't 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. Amen!

    Note: For those participating in the Creation Photography weekly themes, here is this week's challenge from group leader, Dianna Wyles: Ephesians 2:10 ~ "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."~ Did you guess it? This week our fun theme will be 'Hand Crafted' and, as always, is wide open for some fun, creative interpretation We also encourage you to post anything else that inspires you as well. My photos this week reflect a few of my favorite hand crafted things...arts and crafts and some beautifully 'Hand Crafted' by God blessings I am honored and delighted to have captured. Have an amazing week everyone and remember, 'We are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works', so go and 'Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might', and let's not forget to do those things in the love and joy of our Lord ~ God bless!

Thank you Father for never giving up on me. Especially when I'm wrong, when I sin... thank you Holy Spirit for Your guidance and conviction. Help me when I'm stalled, like now. Guide me and encourage me out of this rut I'm in. Help me keep my eyes on You Jesus... let Your Word be a light into my life and a lamp unto my feet. Restore me Father..Restore my marriage..bring conviction and repentance....forgive my sins and heal me for Your Names sake. In Jesus Name. Amen
