One of the many anomalties with our makeup is that we eat because we think our body needs it when it really needs something to drink. So in these moments when I am actually thirsty, I go through the refridgerator and cabinets to find what I am looking for but never find it. In the same way, there is a hole in our life that only the Lord can fill. It is for this reason that we go to the world to find what is missing in our life like wealth, fame, careers, and love. Yet no matter how much we obtain, we always seem to be missing the “one thing”. When we accept the Lord into our lives and walk in His grace, everything that we have garnered will become secondary to the Lord. You see, the Lord G-d made us by forming us in the womb so He made room for Himself in us. His commands are from all eternity and everyone that is accepted them into their lives has known life and that more abundantly. No matter what life throws at us, we have a Rock on which we can stand that is unmoved by the world’s threats and pressures.

Famous Quote: “Whatever [the] fears, encourage [yourself] to face them – then turn them over to G-d. G-d loves [you], and when we know Christ and have put our faith and trust in Him, we know He’ll never abandon us” – Billy Graham.
As Billy Graham put it, “we’ve always needed G-d” (Prayer 9/11/01). The ways of the world are shifting sands because they are always changing one fad to another. Help me to daily put my trust in You no matter what comes at me or where my mind takes me. Help me to be an encouragement to my readers that they accept you into their lives and find the freedom and the missing part of their lives. I pray that you will continue to shake the world and its elected leaders so that they may be silenced before you. I pray for the military, law enforcement, and EMT communities that you will be with every one of them and bring them safely home. I pray over our politicians that you will continue to shake them to their core with the message of the Ephod so that they fully understand who they serve. I pray for the city of Stacy, the state of Minnesota, and the USA may your Spirit fall fresh upon us. I pray for the truckers who carry supplies to our communities. I thank you for healing our land by rain that refreshes the land and the storms that shake the heart of mankind. I pray for those who need a special touch from you today. Finally, I pray that my words will always be an encouragement to all who read these words in Jesus’ name I pray. May your peace be upon my family, city, state, nation, and world. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer (Psalms 19:14).
