Psalm 27 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ADONAI IS MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION;   Whom do I need to fear?  ADONAI is the stronghold of my life;  of whom do I need to be afraid. When evildoers assailed me to devour my flesh, my adversaries and foes, they stumbled and fell. If an army encamps against me, my heart will  not fear; if war breaks out against me, even then will I keep trusting.    Just on thing have I I asked of ADONAI, only this will I seek: to live in the house of ADONAI, all the days of my life.  to see the beauty of ADONAI, and visit in His Temple. For He will conceal me in His shelter, on the day of trouble, He will hide me in t he folds of His tent. He will set me high on a rock. Then my head will be lifted up above my surround foes, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, sing praises to ADONAI.

Listen, ADONAI, to my voice when I cry; show favor to mel and answer me.  My heart said of you,”Seek my face.”   Your face,  ADONAI, I will seek.  Do not hide Your face from me, don’t turn your servant away in anger. You are my help don’t abandon me; don’t leave me, God my Savouir.  Even though my father and mother have left me, ADONAI will care for me.  Teach me Your way, ADONAI; lead me on a level path, because of my enemies——  don’t give me up to the whims of my foes; for false witnesses have risen against me, also those who are breathing violence.

If I hadn’t believed that I would see ADONAI’S goodness in the land of the living,…………    Put your hope in ADONAI, be strong, and let your heart take courage! Yes, put your hope in ADONAI!

A Time to persevere, not to give up and declare your victory……………..

I am guilty of giving up a moment, a day, or just a segment/facet of time before the victory I do have in God/Abba! I love to use the microwave and not the typical oven/stovetop.  I abhor waiting, for most things I have waited for, been promised of by mankind, rarely come to pass. But this is the season and hour that is changing; well for me anyway!  I also abhor to fight, but growing up, I fought and won, in regards to my younger brother. I beat him up alot.  Now I abhor confrontation in many ways. So as I don’t usually play games (have worked jigsaw puzzles most of my life),  on the internet, or board games, well recently I have played one game : Candy Crush.  I stopped for I got stuck on a level, well :                                                                   From a recent blog I found :  When I look at the design of it, each level is a little square puzzle, connected by a track,  and as each puzzle is solved, I then move on the track to the next level. Some levels are easier to pass than others and, I’ll admit, there have been a few levels that I got stuck on. When faced with this “adversity,”  I could have given up.  I could have thrown my phone.  I could have researched cheat codes. I could have whined and cried,  lamenting my misfortune.  I could have paid for an upgrade.  Instead, I relied on the generosity of friends (ie. free lives and extra moves) and just kept persisting until I got to the next level, knowing that eventually I could beat it.                                                       http://kbakerbyodlit.blogspot.com/2013/05/the-existentialism-of-candy-crush.html?spref=fb

Now I will do better when I am stuck, and thinking it will never end. I have heard for years, that it is so often darkest before the dawn, and this is true for all of us. Each of us have areas, where we give up, or even refuse to try. We allow others and their words/actions keep us in denial of the real issues at hand.  So now, whatever it is you have an issue with, be it finishing what you start, keeping your mouth shut, or just open it.  How about instead of complaining about stuff, jump in and help. You most likely are a teacher, and because no one listens, maybe you quit telling others your point of view.  Or, instead of saving all that money, start spending it, wisely of course. Don’t always buy the least expensive, but try a more regal of a product, a more valuable item. Ok, it is TIME for victory in that which you haven’t had victory, or maybe just a partial victory. YEAH GOD!

WHO ARE YOU…………………. ??

Nicole Nanette~~~

May I?  This whole posting on April 10th, 2014 is to share, and ask you , Who are you?  Let me now introduce myself to you and I look forward to your response and even your photo as well. This image of myself is from 1975, and I graduated High School in 1976.  Now you know how old I am.  LOL…. I have always had this image, but back in grade school I was called a dog, and so many called me other names and the girls had very colorful names for me. I was an adopted child in infancy and the cousins as well had names for me, basically from their parents (aunts/uncles).  I was told from all but my mom (adopted) that I could marry my cousins, for I was really not related to them. 

Now my mom, (Mary), was a jewel, and I never let her love me, and was so UGH to her. So several years after she passed (2001), I asked a sweet older woman I knew to forgive me (she stood in for  my mom), for not letting her love me, as well as treating her so badly.

So, I have noticed many have been (on social media), been sharing graduation, childhood, wedding, photos and so I thought I would share mine. THIS TIME, though, (after a major demonic deliverance), I can see myself truer than ever! I actually love myself now! WOW!  What a breakthrough! 

I chose to blog this light bulb and its wattage for many of you. FOR SO MANY OF US, think we are either ugly, or pathetic, or blank, or, well you fill in the blank ____________.              I wonder truly how many of us could list a dozen good, beautiful attributes about themselves, and truly believe them. 

So now, WHAT adjective can you describe yourself with or see yourself with?  Come on, look at yourself in the mirror and answer this question!

Think of I Corinthians 13………  Love is _________.                                                            One should try and fill in their name in the same manner. If not this is a wonderful goal for your season.  AND REMEMBER GOD IS LOVE!  Shalom!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
