Praising You

Lord, today, I choose to praise You. You're the only One Who deserves our thanks and praise! Amidst the trials and tribulations we are all going through, Your wonderful promises constantly remind us that You're always there with us, for us. We are never alone and to have that thought and "truth" will help us get through all these ordeals.

Thank You Lord for Your wonderful, faithful, everlasting love. Thank You for Your mercy. We hurt You many, many times, yet You always readily forgive us when we turn to You. Who is like that among us Lord? None..."For Your ways and thoughts are higher than ours".

I choose to seek You. I choose to receive Your love. I choose Your forgiveness. I choose to believe in You. I choose to have faith and trust only in You. I choose to sing this song You had given me in my heart. I choose to love You.

Thank You Lord for always carrying me whether I'm in troubling times or not. Thank You for saving me. Thank You for reaching out Your hand to me. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Deuteronomy 10:21 - "He is your God, the one who is worthy of your praise, the one who has done mighty miracles that you yourselves have seen."

You, Oh Lord Jesus

Lord, I give my heart to You
Lifting up my hands to praise and thank You
Sometimes I have no words to say
But I know You’re here with me, come what may…..oh Lord


You… saved me
And You…healed me
You…..carry me
And You….love me….oh Jesus…

Jesus, I trust in You
No one else loves me the way You do
On the cross You died for all
You call us friends if we choose to believe in You…Oh Jesus…

[repeat Chorus]…

  1. AMEN...what a beautiful reminder: "No one loves me more than my Heavenly Father."

    Blessings, andrea

  2. Amen. What a beautiful post and reminder that God loves us. Thank You for this, I have read it twice. Many Blessings,

  3. I love praying with you and am in agreement as we praise Him today.

    I've been singing a song with lyrics: "I shall be still and know that you are God; Your ways are not my ways..." I've been singing it for over a month in my trial. Then I realized it was a song written for a retreat I participated in over 20 years ago. I mention it because you referred to that scripture!

    Love ya,

  4. Amen, amen. I am praising Him with you dear.

  5. Hi,
    I say Amen , He is worthy of our praise!Thanks for such a beautiful song & thanks for stopping by my blog & leaving the sweet comment.Have a blessed week.8-)

  6. Rosel,

    I love how God sets the standard for what real love means and how we too can take that back and apply it to the people in our lives. He is a great example and I can only hope to be just like Him in all I do and say.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  7. He is wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing about your father with me. It is hard to explain how something so heart-wrenching, can be beautiful at the same time. I cannot imagine what it must be like to lose someone with out Jesus...

    Thanks for your encouraging comments. It is so wonderful to have people come along side of me and simply understand right now!

  8. your strength and dedication to God amazes me. Thanks for being you and this is awesome. Do you know how much strength I get from your blog? I do. A lot. God is using you. Sarah

  9. Good! I like Psalm 22:3 - "You are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the praise of Israel." The alternate reading is "You are entrhoned on the praises of Israel." Our praise enthrones God!

  10. So beautiful Rosel!
    You have such a way with words - when you cry out to the Lord I can FEEL your love pour out through your words.

    I hope you are having a good week so far my friend!
    Blessings to you,

  11. Rosel, I have been missing you. Been lost without internet or my laptop for several days and slow at getting back to visiting. I have missed so many days of visiting that I am slow at getting caught up. I am so glad to visit you today. Thanks for the reminder of His love for me. No one loves me like He does. NO ONE! Thanks Rosel,
    Love, Christy

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]

Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.

Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.

All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.

When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.

The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.

When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himself and ended up injuring his attacker severely.

[Source: NLT Bible ]:

We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.

“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14

Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].

Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.

Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.

Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
