    For my eyes are on you, Yahweh, the Lord. I take refuge in you. Don't leave my soul destitute. Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, from the traps of the workers of iniquity. Let the wicked fall together into their own nets while I pass by. Psalms 141:8'10 WEB.A simple but effective t...

Just Around the Corner

  • When they came to Marah, they couldn't drink from the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore its name was called Marah. The people murmured against Moses, saying, "What shall we drink?" Then he cried to Yahweh. Yahweh showed him a tree, and he threw it into the waters, and the waters were made sweet. There he made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there he tested them. He said, "If you will diligently listen to Yahweh your God's voice, and will do that which is right in his eyes, and will pay attention to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I am Yahweh who heals you." They came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees. They encamped there by the waters. Exodus 15:23-27 WEB.

    When they arrived at Marah, the Israelites had been traveling for three days through a desert wasteland. The water at Marah was bitter (poisoned), and they could not drink it. Thirsty and without water, the camp soon began to grumble against Moses. After Moses prayed, the Lord showed him a tree that he threw into the water, and it became sweet.

    After the bitter water of Mara, their very next stop was Elim, where there were twelve springs of water. An abundance of water. More than they needed. There was a spring for each of the twelve tribes of Israel. There were also seventy palm trees so they could rest in the shade. They had found an oasis in the desert.

    Their test this time was no water in sight, but their breakthrough was right around the corner. The next trial the Israelites faced was no food in sight, though an abundance was just around the corner. Do you see the pattern? Each time they were near their breaking point, they were right before breaking through with an abundance.

    So don't give up when what you need is not in sight; it is just a test of your faith. Each time you are close to a breakthrough, you will be given a chance to trust God or to murmur and complain. The pressure comes on strong when all you need is just around the next corner.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know You love me and that you will provide for me. Please help me to be strong in the face of adversity and to learn to trust You. Cover me with Your peace and guide me by Your Holy Spirit today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

Amen. Thank you Jesus, I trust You. I love You Lord. 
My medical procedure I had yesterday was the easiest one iv ever had. My issues with going under anathesia is I always wake up with a terrible cluster headache triggered. Yesterday was the first time I woke up feeling great. No reaction. I couldn't believe it for a second, but quickly thanked the Lord for that..the power of prayer. I went to sleeping praising Him and woke up praising Him.

thank you guys for praying and thank You Jesus..

Never, never, never give up! That was Winston Churchill and also my dad's favorite saying. We might stumble and grumble a bit at times but don't wallow in it. Get up and drive on!
