         I was reading in Deuteronomy 2 1-3 where GOD was giving HIS people a new direction in which to take. Verse 3 states ” You have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.”  Glory to GOD!!!

     As we enter into the new year ahead of us our hearts should be filled with more than just Hope. As children of a just GOD  who hear HIS Word and listens to HIS voice we should be filled with a Holy Expectation of things to come . The year ahead will be filled with miracles,signs,and wonders from the Heavens above!!! GOD is indeed Good!!!

       Oftentimes GOD is telling us to take a new direction and ,speaking for myself , I wonder if HE is speaking to me or just to those around me. I sometimes do not feel as though I deserve to hear from HIM  ,and, I know that I do not deserve all of the Blessings which HE has poured upon me!!! In my daily walk with HIM I am assured of one thing; HE Loves me!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

   I am so looking forward to the year ahead. As each day’s testings and temptings fall my way I am overwhelmed with HIS presence. I know that HE is with me each and every step!!! As with the children of Israel ,I know that this New Beginning brings me into Moab, However , knowing that HE is there makes the journey into this new year a delightful one!!! Amen!!!

    Headed to the Well!!!  I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

Psalm 121

Image via Wikipedia

  I was reading in Psalm 57 :1 where we can find comfort in the Knowledge that GOD has HIS wings around us in times of trouble. GOD is Good ; all of the time!!!

   As the new year approaches I am convinced that there is no problem which I will face in the year ahead that is too big for GOD!!! I have seen so many signs of HIS Grace and Mercy in my everyday life that I am overwhelmed . GOD certainly has and does take care of  those of us who long for HIS Love. Thank You JESUS!!!

     There are times when I get caught up with everyday Life and , for a short while , not remember that GOD is with me . One sharp thorn and I am corrected once again; in the knowledge of HIS ever-present Love. I firmly believe that my prayer-life helps me stay connected with HIM , however , I am not always in prayer during the day. I need to be ,however , Life happens!!! Thank GOD for HIS Understanding!!!

   I can picture myself  like the Angel in Revelation ; with one foot in the ocean and one foot on the ground. GOD has given me a manner in which I can keep a perfect balance between the “earthly” and the  “Divine”.  I just need constant prayer in my life to enable that balance. May GOD grant me the ability for constant prayer. Amen!!!

    I thank GOD for HIS wings!!! I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

        I was reading in Ephesians 3 14 – 21 where Paul was praying for the church . He wanted the members to know the power of GOD through the Love of CHRIST!!! He wanted the people to share in a LOVE that surpasses all Knowledge . Glory!!!

     As I go through each and every day I am noticing those things about myself which before were hidden to me . As my walk with GOD strengthens my Love for others grows without bounds . I can see , through all that I witness on a daily basis , that I am indeed Blessed!!! Never before have I felt so much confidence with my situations in life. Nothing seems to affect me in a negative fashion, and , I am continuously happy for those around me. When I  think of all that GOD has done for me I am Humbled beyond explanation!!! GOD is Good!!!

       I take long walks every morning , rain or shine , that I am able . During my walks I am filled with a Joy that I cannot comprehend. I know that I am surrounded by HIS Angels at all times!!! It is such a Blessing to lay hands on a dead tree and return the next day to see the tree thriving . Or to be accompanied by the same birds every time I hike through my wilderness and listen to their songs of Joy as we hike together marching to nowhere in particular and everywhere in the Knowledge that HE is not only with me , HE is in me !!! Even the birds know!!! Thank You JESUS!!!

      Headed to the Well!!!  Thirsty!!!

    ” For this reason I kneel before the Father….”   I LOVE YOU !!!!!!! Mark

The Holy Spirit depicted as a dove above the H...

                       I was reading in Luke 1 where Mary had come in to talk with Elizabeth and upon hearing Mary’s voice the Holy Spirit came upon the child in Elizabeth’s womb and the child jumped within her.  I believe that ,  at that time , in the womb , we had John with us !!! Later in Luke I read where Mary became pregnant with JESUS  by the Holy Spirit . It is at that time we humans experienced Immanuel, GOD with us!!! Praise GOD!!!    

                 I know ,without a doubt , that had Mary or Elizabeth had an abortion that they would have committed a crime against the Will of GOD!!! Abortion is murder , a premeditated manner in which a person chooses to eliminate a child while that unborn child is still in the womb. To consider the act of abortion anything less than murder would devalue the moral fiber of life itself!!! There is sanctity in Life !!!    

        Can you cheat GOD???  When did GOD quit being GOD???  ” You shall have pain in child-birth ….”  pretty much covers the Almighty Will of GOD!!!  Whether or not the child is wanted is irrelevant.   Being a victim of rape does not place you upon the “Great White Throne”!!!  Any unwanted pregnancy does not give you the right to decide whether a child lives or dies!!! GOD did not create man in HIS image to see man destroy HIS image before the procreation is complete!!!  They are not the Ten Suggestions!!!  

     I honestly believe that a woman has the right to choose ; I just differ with the timing of that choice!!! In my humble opinion the right  to choose comes before a man and woman ” KNOW ” one another!!! After which ; there is no choice!!! No choice!!!   

       GOD loved us in the womb!!! GOD loved you in the womb !!! I am not the brightest mind on this matter , however , I can only conclude that if you are reading this that your mother loved you while you were still in the womb!!!  At the very least your mother did not abort you!!! 

   Perhaps you were “unwanted”; a mistake in judgment.  Maybe the timing wasn’t just right!!! Oh well ; “there will be tribulation”!!!  

    On the matter of past . What if I have already….?   Get over it!!! We all make mistakes on a daily basis . Not only are we all  sinners falling miserably short of HIS Glory , we are all overcoming one mistake after another . Thank GOD for Repentance!!!  Thank GOD for Forgiveness!!!  

    When I conceive in my mind a Hope which I harbor for the future I give birth to that Hope!!!!!!!  When I conceive!!! To abandon that Hope would be an abortion of Faith!!!  

    I Love you!!!!!!! Mark
