Filled Up by God

“The poor and needy seek water, but there is none, Their tongues fail for thirst. I, the LORD, will hear them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. (Isaiah 41:17 NKJV) No matter how tired or stressed, depressed, anxious, or just worn out you are, God knows what your needs are and He will give you need. He will quench your thirst, soothe your soil, and fill you you up. God is like a lonnnng drink of water on the hottest summer day. God is your oasis when your soul thirsts.
Furthermore, God promises to supply all our needs and to fill you up. He even says I know your needs before you do, and I'm already working on it. So, the next time you spirit feels withered, dry, and empty turn to God and He will fill your soul. Love, Beau

Delight in Our Deliverance

"Then Hannah prayed and said: 'My heart rejoices in the LORD; in the LORD my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance." (1 Samuel 2:1) God gives us strength to war against our enemies and to be raised above those things which would harm us. He watches over us and gives us what we need when we need it. God also delivers us from evil and from our enemies. As Hannah did, we should boasts over what God has done for us and "delight in our deliverance." We should thank God for everything He does for us and for His ongoing, eternal protection. Praise to God! Amen!! Love, Beau

I Am With You

"I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you." (Genesis 28:15 NIV) God is with us always , and He will guide and lead us. God promises us that He will be with us until it's time, for those who believe, for His second coming to take us home. God is with us until all His plans for the world, and for each of us has been fulfilled. The fact that God is always watching us even to the end of times is a comforting thought. Amen! Love, Beau

The Power of Grace

"And now for a little while grace has been shown from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage." (Ezra 9:8 NKJV) Grace isn't just a girl's name. It is something amazingly special and wonderful that God gives to us. God gives us grace when we screw up soooooo bad we don't deserve to be forgive, but He does. He says I love you so much, and want to be with you so much, that if you're truly sorry I forgive you and you can still be with me in Heaven. With God's grace we don't have to do anything. He gives us this gift because He loves us. Not only that God forgives us over and over and over again. This leaves always leaves us an opening to find our way back to Him when we stray...not only to be with Him in Heaven someday but also to reveal Himself, and His ways to us, and to renew us. And, not only can we receive God's grace, but we can give it as well. We are to be like-minded as Christ, so God wants us to freely give grace like He gives to us. What a special gift to give to someone!...forgiving them even when they don't deserve it, and giving them a second chance. This week try being a more GRACE-ful person! Love, Beau

Nothing Can Separate Us

"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:38,39 NKJV) Nothing can separate us from God's love...not even death. Jesus Christ died, and not only did He conquer death, but because He died for our sins and atonement, as long as we are in relationship with Him, we have also conquered death. AND, as long as we truly repent of our sins nothing we do, and no matter how far we stray from Him, we are not separated from Him. All we have to do is look, or turn, around and there He is, ready to greet us, take us in, and give us a big warm, loving hug. For this we can feel blessed...and eternally loved! Amen! Love, Beau
