The Painting: This was completed yesterday and I love the contrast of the blues and oranges. Make me an offer and I will send it your way.

Okay, I do not know why, this blog did not post Saturday morning when I wrote it.... we have been with out I am going to set this to post for Tuesday morning, but know it was written on Saturday morning.

The Thought:       Are you strong and courageous? 

Now when it comes to God and the words strong and courageous many things come into play.  God speaks to each of us and encourages us to do certain things in our lives with our gifts.   Many choose not to stop to listen when He is sharing with us, certain in our destiny as we go our own way and not His way.

He looks to you to encourage you. Are you listening?  You must count on your personal courage to carry through the journey He sets up for you.  Nothing in life happens without your courage.  God wants you to be accountable for your choices and decisions in life.  He speaks to you about this all the time. You have to have courage to confront your children or to resolve family conflict. You have to have courage to make decisions which may affect the lives of others. You must have courage to follow through with those decisions.  I believe you must be strong to be courageous as you will face evil and opposition along the way. He will be with you every step of the way.

Maybe you should write down what you think God would want you to do.  Do you believe with all your heart that He wants you to do what you have written down?  If so, you now have a direction.  Now, can you be assured His presence is there with you as you take on this assignment.  Will anyone else be there to stand with you as you do it? How much determination does it require for you to do this thing that God wants you to do?  Do you face any opposition? Do you realize that success or failure is in your hands?  Everyday as you live your life, others are watching you.  You are a living example of God's love in motion.  Proclaiming His truth will always result in success.   God wants you to persevere against any opposition.  Negativity and the devil are always near to draw you from your goal.

God is calling you to be strong and courageous.  Act with courage and He will provide more courage. Use your little strength and He will provide greater strength.  This is how God transforms our lives.  I will pray for you this day...for all of us to be strong and courageous and for each of us to accept what He has given us in our lives.  He never give us more than we can handle at any one time.  You have within you the Power of the Christ.  Breath in this power and refuse to believe that you will not grow weary.  Affirm His Greatness... you are strong and courageous.

Be confident.


"The LORD replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." Then Moses said to him, "If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.  How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?"
 And the LORD said to Moses, "I will do the very thing you have asked, because I am pleased with you and I know you by name."
 Then Moses said, "Now show me your glory."
 And the LORD said, "I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion." Exodus 33:14-19
