My Daddy

Filed Under (Blogs) by Susan on 23-02-2009

Hello everyone!  I want to introduce you to my Daddy, my heavenly one, that is!  He is LORD, and as Psalms 18:2-3 says:

 2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
 3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Verse 2 was my promise verse for the year 2009.  Never did a verse have so much meaning to me as in this past week!  I’ll explain more in the next entry!  I can truly say that I’ve tasted and seen that the Lord is good, blessed are they who trust in Him.

I remember as a child, my earthly daddy and our shopping excursions.  If I asked him for something, just one thing, chances were pretty good that I would receive two items.  I remember wanting to make a surprise cake for Biju Uncle, one of my uncles.  My dad returned from the store with two boxes of cake mix.  This was how my earthly father operated.

The Bible says in Luke 11, how much more then would our Heavenly Daddy, Our Father, give good gifts to His children who ask him?  If we asked our earthly daddy for some bread, will he give us a snake?  No.  So then how much more would our Heavenly Father give us His Holy Spirit?

Take heart, dear readers, God is our strength, our refuge and our rock, Trust Him.  Know who He is, and who you are in His sight.

God bless you always,
Susan

Innocence of Children

Filed Under (Blogs) by Susan on 14-02-2009

I do not have a green thumb, (it’s brown actually, haha).  However, I have wanted to plant pansies for the past 3-4 years, and have been unable to do so for one reason or another.  I just wanted to see if they would really live after being planted during the winter season. 

Well, in December I finally had the opportunity to buy pansies, and to plant them.  I asked the clerks at the Barn Nursery “I heard it’s still not too late to plant pansies, right?” They affirmed everything, and tried to talk me through on how to plant them.

Well, after planting them, we had a horrible freeze for about 2 weeks in January.  My youngest baby, Caleb, came to me after looking at the pansies I had planted.  He had tears in his eyes and pointed at the green shrubs and said “Where’s the flowers, mommy?”    He made me want to cry.  I felt horrible for him.  He remembered seeing the flowers, and now they were gone, leaving only the green leaves.

The precious children are so innocent, aren’t they?  They do not have a clue.  They are so trusting, never doubting a word.  I think this is all the more reason that we should do everything to protect them.  From conception onwards, fight to protect the lives of the innocent.  If no one stands up for the unprotected and innocent babes, then what will happen to our future generation?  I urge you readers to take a stand for the lives of our children.  We must protect our future and our posterity.  Pray for the children, and ask God what you can do to work and speak and transform the lives our innocent children.

Because every child matters!

Intercession!!

Filed Under (Blogs) by Susan on 14-02-2009

Hello everyone!  I hope that you all are in the best of health.  By the grace of God we are all in good health, however, things are extremely hectic in the house without my better half.  I’ve fallen off the wagon as far as updating my blogs.  I’m sorry for that!

Unfortunately, there has been plenty to weep over these past few weeks.  I heard on the radio recently of yet another instance of young people enslaved in sex trafficking.  It was a typical scenario.  I am still trying to get more details, but I ask you all to sincerely pray for this 14 and 17 year old young women.

A pastor and family serving God in Pakistan as missionaries apparently were having financial struggles.  Their oldest two children, 14 and 17 year old sisters, desired to help the family by searching for employment through simple jobs.  A “trusted” neighbor told the father (the pastor) of a particular easy job in the town that would fit the children.  He did not want them to go, however, the children persuaded him, and he finally gave in.  Of course, you know the story.  The neighbor sold them to a brothel, where they immediately were repeatedly violated and sexually assaulted.  The good news is that the young women were rescued.

The bad news is that now those dear young women must psychologically, emotionally, physically heal.  I grieve for that father, the pastor, as well.   Would you commit to praying for them daily?  May God give them peace and healing, that only He can do.  There is nothing and no one in the world who can grant peace like Jesus can.  Amen?  What is that old gospel song, “Can’t nobody do me like Jesus?” God is faithful.  Even in the hardest, most grievous, most questioning of times,  He still promises to never leave us or forsake us.  Please pray that the parents and those young girls will know that, and know that God has them engraved in His hands.  They have been rescued for a purpose, and may God help them to be in His perfect will.

I pray that for you, too!   God bless you as you seek His face and His will for your life.

Because every child matters,

Susan
