Midday Musical Devotional Pt. 2

I am in Idaho this weekend sharing in the Word and worship. My internet may be a little sketchy; So I will catch up with all my comments when I return on Tuesday. For the weekend I have left you all some musical devotions and  questions I hope bless you.

Midday Question:  Where is your life out of balance?

Midday Scripture: Psalm 139 NIV

You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.

13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand—
    when I awake, I am still with you.

19 If only you, God, would slay the wicked!
    Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
    your adversaries misuse your name.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord,
    and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
    I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

Midday Prayer: Lord Your plans for me are good. I don’t want anything to hold them up. I especially don’t want anything inside of me or in my life to hold up Your plans. Lord I ask you to help me. Reveal to me any area of my life that is not pleasing to You. Show me any area of imbalance that may be making me ineffective or unproductive. Change me Oh God! In Jesus name A-men

Morning Musical Devotional Pt. 2

I am on my way to Idaho this weekend to share in the Word and worship. My internet may be a little sketchy; So I will catch up with all my comments when I return on Tuesday. For the weekend I have left you all some musical devotions and  questions I hope bless you.

Morning Question: What’s your ideal future?

Morning Scripture: Jeremiah 29: 4-14 NIV

This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon:“Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” Yes, this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Do not let the prophets and diviners among you deceive you. Do not listen to the dreams you encourage them to have. They are prophesying lies to you in my name. I have not sent them,” declares the Lord.

10 This is what the Lord says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”

Morning Prayer:  Lord I know You love me and want the best for me. I trust You. I have my ideas, my goals, my dreams, but I only want them if they are Your best for me. So I give ,my ideas, my goals, my dreams into Your hands and ask that You would take charge of them again. Open the doors You want me to go through and close the doors that are not Your best choice for me. Help me to move with Your Spirit. In Jesus name A-men

 

Midday Musical Devotional Pt.1

I am on my way to Idaho this weekend to share in the Word and worship. My internet may be a little sketchy; So I will catch up with all my comments when I return on Tuesday. For the weekend I have left you all some musical devotions and  questions I hope bless you.

Midday question: What challenges are you struggling with at the moment?

Midday Scripture: Romans 8:31-39 NIV

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Midday Prayer: Lord Jesus I acknowledge the challenges openly this afternoon. I also admit I don’t have all the answers. I know, though, that You do know the way…You have the answers. Show me the way. Give me your strategies to victory and come and work the win in me! Give me strength to stand until you have completed Your work! In Jesus name A-men

Morning Musical Devotional Pt. 1

I am on my way to Idaho this weekend to share in the Word and worship. My internet may be a little sketchy; So I will catch up with all my comments when I return on Tuesday. For the weekend I have left you all some musical devotions and  questions I hope bless you.

Morning question:

What’s important to you at the moment? Why?

Morning Scripture: Matthew 6:31-34 NIV

 

31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Prayer:  Lord help me to choose you and your way this morning. Help me not to fear or worry about tomorrow. Help me to keep my eyes on what you have put in my heart for this day…this moment. In Jesus name A-men

I love the opening quote. Is anyone looking to adopt a pet?

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.”

  Maggie and I are sending out our last minute pleading request of her followers & friends to vote for her in the Super Dog Sunday football photo contest. Maggie is #24. The vote is to bring awareness for homeless pets (and preventing euthanasia) through the Petfinder Foundation. Yes, Maggie is competitive and likes a win here or there, but she wants a win-win. It’s not all about her. In her #24 photo she looks super cute in her SF 49er football scarf. Hello, 2013 Super Bowl is this weekend…. Maggie realizes she gets to watch the big game lounging in a warm & cozy fleece by my…
