Why Are You Here?

"Why are you here: You were created for God and to glorify God (Isaiah 43:7), because it pleased him to do so (Ephesians 1:5). Simply put, God's glory is how he makes His presence known. You, my friend are a platform from which God displays His magnificence and makes His presence easy to see. Knowing you were created BY God and FOR God confirms that you have great value and great purpose, regardless of how you feel about yourself, regardless of how you came into this world, regardless of what others have said about you in the past. Every human life is sacred, no matter how it began.
As you ponder God's speaking the universe into existence, do you think anything in your life is too difficult for Him to take care of? Any problem too complex for Him to solve? Any illness beyond His power to heal? Any child too rebellious for Him to tame? Any marriage too far gone for Him to restore? Nothing is impossible for Elohim, the mighty Creator. He can breathe life into any seemingly hopeless situation that comes your way. "For nothing is impossible with God." (Luke 1:37). You can depend on Elohim to weave a design out of the tangled circumstances of your life, even when they seem as shapeless and dark as the earth prior to His first utterance of "Let there be." Prayer: Elohim, mighty Creator, I praise You that You spoke and what was not became what is. From the minutia of an atom to the grandness of the sea, the whole earth shouts the truth of Your creative glory. I thank You for Your mighty power that can create order from my chaos, fashion beauty from my brokenness, and bring light into the darkness of my world. I rest assured that NOTHING is too hard for you to handle. In Jesus's name, amen." From the book, "Knowing God by Name" by Sharon Jaynes, Gwen Smith & Mary Southerland.
Praise Him all day long!

Don't tell God that you have a big problem! Tell your problem that you gave a BIG God.
Your greatest test is when you are able to bless someone else while you are going through your own storm!

Thanks for all your prayers and personal notes of encouragement.
Please continue to remember us in prayer, and pray that the Lord will encourage those folk who can provide the resources to obtain an FM radio station in these needed communities.
Thank-you.... In HIS grip

A few months ago our boss walked into my office and announced he wanted me to manage a multi-million job. I have little experience in this area and he faced a back lash from other colleagues but he insisted he wanted me.
I was excited but more nervous of what the outcome might be. I posted a prayer on the prayer wall here and I thank you all that prayed for me. The job is coming to an end and almost every turn, I have faced grate oppositions, things that could have resulted in a catastrophe but just as soon as I face the mountain, there opens a door for me to step out of the situation and through it all I’ve grown in my experience and even my trust in God. I want to give Him the glory for being so gracious to me. The very people that scorned the decision to make me a manager of the job now want me to take on other jobs, reason being that they are complicated and would require someone like me. Isn’t God awesome? I say He is over and over again. Praise Jesus Amen.

I had posted a prayer request about a month ago in regards to a tough situation that was going on at my job since the owner past away. I am posting a praise request because the Lord has provided for me a new job with a different company where I will be able to have many opportunities to experience many different positions in my Accounting career and learn a lot. I am also praising the Lord for the fact that the company I will be working for has very good benefits, including health insurance, which my husband and I have not had for awhile. Thank you also Lord that the current company I am working for took the news well that I am leaving. You are truly an Awesome God!!!

Thanks to all who prayed for my mother-in-law in the hospital with pneumonia. She is out of the hospital now and back in her care home. The family drama is quiet for now but may stir again someday when her time comes. Would appreciate continued prayers for my work situation that I can return good for evil and have the Lord's peace.
