I am a kept woman

I am a Kept Woman

You see there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind,
But GOD kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3)
There were times when I thought I could go no longer,
But the LORD kept me moving. (Gen 28:15)
At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong,
But the LORD kept my mouth shut.. (Psa. 13)
Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough,
But GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid, etc.., (Matt. 6:25 -34)
When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up.
When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong! (I Pet. 5:7, Matt. 11:28-30)
I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me!
I'm blessed to be 'kept '

I'm "Kept" by the Love and Grace of God

Does God answer all our prayers?

So many times we ask God why things happen and we often feel that God is not answering our prayers. Well He does answer them but He often chooses not to answer why because it makes it seems like he is accompice to all the bad things that happen in our lives when He isn't. He is there for us to lean on when bad things happen.
We just have to trust that God is there for us, no matter what happens in our lives.

Last week I read about a twenty something year old that died of a heart attack and I wondered why God would allow that to happen when I should have just prayed that God would be with his loved ones and help them cope with such a thing.

In the book or John Christ says...If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. (john 15:7)

There may be some prayers that God does not answer. If you were someone who did not really believe in God but chose to pretend to pray to Him and ask Him to reveal himself, He probably would not answer it. He would turn away from you as you turned away from him. Only if you were to fall on your knees and repent would he listen to your prayers.

God is In control of all things

A handicapped woman once asked if she and her handicapped husband should have children. She was afraid that if she did get pregnant, she would bring a handicapped child into the world and would not be able to cope with it or the stress of having a child would be too much for her and her husband even though they both wanted a child desperately.

Exodus 4:11....11But the LORD answered, " Who makes people able to speak or makes them deaf or unable to speak? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Don't you know that I am the one who does these things? 12Now go! When you speak, I will be with you and give you the words to say."

13Moses begged, " LORD, please send someone else to do it."

14The LORD became irritated with Moses and said:

What about your brother Aaron, the Levite? I know he is a good speaker. He is already on his way here to visit you, and he will be happy to see you again. 15-16Aaron will speak to the people for you, and you will be like me, telling Aaron what to say. I will be with both of you as you speak, and I will tell each of you what to do. 17Now take this walking stick and use it to perform miracles.

That is what Moses needed to hear. God would find a way for him to speak to the people through his brother Aaron.

God Knew that Moses might feel he had a problem with the job He put before him so found a way to do it thru his brother Aaron. Just as God will find a way for any parents who has a handicapped child to work through things.

We all must look upon the chilren God gives us as a blessing. Not something that will further handicap us. God controls all things, even what some of us might consdier genetic mistakes.

God values a persons inner beauty and their relationship with Him more than he does physical beauty and intellgence.
