Winsome Wednesday - Magnify The Lord!

All I have to say today is:

Psalm 40 v 16:  Let all those that seek and require You rejoice and be glad in You;  let such as love Your salvation say continually, The Lord be magnified!



Yes and amen!  That's all I have to say today!

God bless

Winsome Wednesday - A Great Idea?

Yesterday I was scrolling through my facebook page as one does and came upon this picture:

From the happy Wives Club

And it occurred to me that I am at a time in my life where my children are growing up, learning how to cope with their own lives, etc and I have a little more (a lot more) time on my hands.  So when I saw this I thought, "yes, time to put more concerted effort into my marriage!"

I love blogging and decided there and then to start a blog, which is private, for my use where I am going to start listing and marking all those "marriage moments" that I can remember and that happen as time goes along.  I thought it would be a great idea for me to document these moments as there have been so many that I have forgotten (and plan to try remember) and this is also a tool I can use to focus on my marriage more positively and look to make new moments.  Afterall, whose marriage does not need all the work and attention it can get?  It is a blessing one has to keep trying to fine tune and appreciate.

Col 3 v 23:  Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men.

My encouragement to you today is twofold, firstly, today, look for a marriage moment and remember it and celebrate it, and secondly, if you don't see one, be the cause of one, a good one!  Marriage is a precious and very under-appreciated blessing (I speak loudly to myself here too).  

God bless

Winsome Wednesday - Letting go... Brings Joy!

We have had a situation for the last 7 years which a year ago came to an end.  We are now in a position where in the worldly way of things: legally, logically, morally, we can pursue this further.... But what does God want of us?  I believe the Lord wants us to "Let it Go!"

The world would say, "But you are well within your rights to pursue this thing, morally etc."
The world would say, "To let go shows weakness, laziness, fear, guilt, etc."

But my God says differently! He says:
  • I will restore what the locust has eaten (Joel 2 v 25)
  • Vengeance is Mine says the Lord (Rom 12 v 19 and  Duet 32 v 35)
  • The battle is Mine to fight, let Me fight it for you (2 Chron 20 v 15)
  • Seek peace and pursue (Ps 34 v 14)


Yes, my pride would say, "I want the last word" or "I'm not giving in" but the Lord would have us hand the situation and the people involved over to Him.  They are God's problem and not ours.  God will not only deal with this in the perfect way (for us and for them) He will vindicate and bring peace and restoration - IN HIS TIME!

And in that LETTING GO..... There is peace....there is JOY!  Happy exhale....  They and this situation are no longer my problem.  Thank you Jesus!!!!

God bless
Tracy

Winsome Wednesday - FOCUS

I found this acrostic on facebook yesterday.  It really spoke to me because currently we are trusting the Lord for something really big.  Big to us, not to Him, smiles!  The thing is, one immediately starts thinking of a plan B or plan C, incase God won't come through, or incase we got it wrong!  When in fact we should hang on to what we believe the Lord wants for us, and not be double-minded!  Especially if you feel you have received a word or confirmation, or something that convinces you in the moment that this is the path the Lord has set you on.


James 1 v 8:  [For being as he is] a man of two minds (hesitating, dubious, irresolute), [he is] unstable and unreliable and uncertain about everything [he thinks, feels, decides].

My encouragement to you is to keep believing.  No matter how doubtful it looks or who is trying to change your mind, so long as you feel the Lord is in it, and guiding you, have faith, stand firm and do not be double-minded.

God bless
Tracy
