Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

God is... by Kathy

Ok. I knew I had to write this. I knew I write the second Tuesday of every month for this blog. Yet, I wait until the last minute. Sound familiar?

Sunday night I’m saying, ok God give me something to write about. Give me an idea please. I pick up Bible, thumb through it …..Nothing.

Ok no big deal. I have a book about speaking God’s word. I will get my idea from it. I pick it up and thumb through it. Ah, the perfect verse to write on. Turn on computer to type. Type the verse. Nothing. Nada. Zip. No idea.

By now I have a splitting headache. I’m starting to stress. I send Kelly (who is my sister) a text saying I have no idea at all what to write for blog. Her response……I know the feeling……..No help there.

So I decide to just go to bed and deal with it later. I turn everything off and start to crawl in bed. And God says to me, “Why don’t you write about what I am to you?”

I turn  around and get a notebook and pen and start writing.

God is…….

My  Rock. Psalm 31:3  Anytime I need him, he is there. Just like when I started stressing out, He came through for me. He keeps me balanced. Thank you God.

My Creator. Isaiah 40:28  He made me and you and everything in this world. And he never grows weary, or never gets too tired to watch over us. And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed  into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. Gen.2:7….. When we get to thinking that we are more than what we are, or that we are better than someone, think about this, we are just dirt until God breathes life into us.

Always there. When you feel that no one cares, and people are mean or rude to you, God is there. He will never leave or forsake us. When you belong to God, He doesn’t leave you to fend for yourself.

My salvation, my strength, and my song. Isaiah 12:2 Behold , God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. KJV

I love to sing and write songs. I love it when he puts a song on my heart Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!

My hope. Without him, we are nothing. But with Him, we are everything.  Romans 8:24-25 For we are saved by hope; but hope that is seen is not hope; for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?....But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

My love. 1John 4:8…He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. KJV

The list can and does go on and on. But you get the idea. Without him, we are nothing. Without his love , mercy and grace, we would have no hope. ……

  1. Great post! I'm amazed at how often this happens to me. I pray and struggle, and when I finally give up, God gives me a topic. My relationship with Him has grown deeper through my commitment to blog.

  2. Love Love Love this!!!! Truly ministers to my heart!!!
    It's it great when we stop and God speaks??

  3. I Really liked this post. Isn't it amazing when God finally decides to respond. When he does we start to think why now, not before. But we have to remember there is always a reason. I often find my self struggling to find something to post about, especially guest posts. And you are right, we are nothing without him... Have a Good day living in Gods presence and mercy

    God Bless,
