Have you not heard??

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak." (Isaiah 40: 28-29 NKJV) The word of God, and His grace, should be enough to silence all fears and anxieties. God finishes what He starts, and the work God has begun in each of us He will finish and perfect. God will perfect His grace and He will help those who genuinely lean on Him. God is always available for us and His wisdom is far greater than we could ever understand. But, we must guard our hearts and minds. If we lean too much on our own understanding we will fail. But, if we put everything into God we will be raised above all our trials and tribulations, and be given the gift of eternal life in Heaven. "Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God...He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom!" Love, Beau

God, Our Father

"He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.’" (Psalm 89:26 NKJV) God plays many roles in our lives. In addition to being our God and our salvation, He also is our father both spiritually and by inheritance. God loves us deeply. He gently and lovingly disciplines and guides us, helping us to mature spiritually. God disciplines us as needed, but He also rewards us as well! As David, the writer of this Psalm, shows, God is our everything and we can always count on Him. We can always turn to Him for everything. We can rejoice in these blessings, and take comfort in God's love for us! Love, Beau

Trusting Faithfully

"Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass." (Psalm 37:5 NKJV) We all need help sometimes. That is how God made lean on one another and be there for each other. Sometimes w have financial woes, sometimes life makes us sad or frustrated, and sometimes we just need a friend. Whatever it is that need, God is there for us. The Holy Bible tells us that if we trust in Him and commit our troubles to Him, we shall pass through it. The hard part is that once we commit it to God we are to completely let go of it, and not worry, stress, or think about it anymore. But human nature gets in the way. That is where faith and trust come in. Once we let go, we have to totally trust in God and have faith that He will do what He says. The blessing is that once we do, life not only gets much better, but God delivers. And, God ALWAYS has a plan, a backup plan, and a backup plan to the backup plan! Praise be to God! Love, Beau

Our Hope and Salvation

"O Israel, hope in the LORD; For with the LORD there is mercy, And with Him is abundant redemption." (Psalm 130:7 NKJV) Only God can heal us from our sin. We often try to heal ourselves through ways the world suggests, and or we distract ourselves from our pain by working, getting involved in social activies, physical activities, or even worse drinking or drugs. But, at the end of the day we can't run from our sins and or the pain it has caused us (and maybe others). The good news is that we can turn to God for healing. And, as this Bible verse says, with the Lord is mercy and abundant redemption. With God (and only with God) we can be whole again! This is a wonderful gift and a blessing! Thanks be to God for His mercy and grace! Love, Beau
