How can a woman not love the Lord?

How can a woman not love the Lord?
He is a gentleman,
He is confident
He is a provider and protector
He is rich and powerful
He owns everything,
there is nothing He wouldn't do for me
He perfects all things concerning me
He antiipates my wants and needs
Every day He tells me and shows me how much He loves me
I don't have to perform in order to earn His love
He keeps all of his promises
No one can influence His opinion of me
He is the ultimate intimate partner
He can't "disown" me because I am a part of Him
He prepares a table before ME (Selah)
He covers me and doesn! 't expose me
He wrote his loving words down so that I'll never forget how
He feels about me!
NOW THAT'S LOVE!!!Any man, who wants pointers on how to love a woman, should study GOD!Wake up every day and thank God for being the best "man" in your life!TO ALL THE GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL WOMEN I KNOW!!! BE BLESSED!!!!
Each and everyone one of us are going through tough times right now ,
but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can.
Keep the faith.
This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.
The prayer:
Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. Where there is a need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' precious name. Amen.

i got this in an email. which gives a new perspective on love. God is love no doubt. I do like recieving these. However i have removed the if you love Him not ashamed etc you will forward this bla bla. I think that spoils the email. Other than that i think this is quite nice. How many women have men like this.

Philippians 4:13

21 November 2006
(Amplified Bible) Philippians 4:13 13I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who [a]infuses inner strength into me; I am [b]self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency].

I was sent this today in email and the focus was the above scripture

This will give you chills....
No matter how religious you may or may not be, this can give you chills.
Phil. 4:13 states: "I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.

Here's the story: A young man who had been raised as an atheist was training to be an Olympic diver. The only religious influence in his life came from hisoutspoken Christian friend. The young diver never really paid much attention to his friend's sermons, but he heard them often. One night the diver went to the indoor pool at the college he attended. The lights were all off, but as the pool had big skylights and the moon was bright, there was plenty of light to practice by. The young man climbed up to the highest diving board and as he turned his back to the pool on the edge of the board and extended his armsout, he saw his shadow on the wall. The shadow of his body, was in the shape of a cross. The man felt a strange feeling, like someone was speaking to him. Instead of diving, he knelt down and finally asked God to come into his life. As the young man stood, a maintenance man walked in and turned the lights on. The pool had been drained ! for repairs. Remember this story and send it to afriend. Yes, I do Love Jesus. He is my source of existence and Savior. He keeps me functioning each and everyday. "Without Him, I will be nothing. Without him, I am nothing but with Him I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me." Phil 4:13. This is the simplest test. If you Love Jesus, and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things he has done for you. Pass this to ten people and the person who sent it to you!!!!!!!!!!!
Live as though Christ died yesterday, rose from the grave today, and is> coming back

its quite a nice email to recieve. The only thing that spoils it for me is the end where the originator states that you must forward to prove your not ashamed of Jesus. Some people.

The way I see it I am not ashamed of Him. Have no reason to be. I wear earrings to work that have Jesus writen cross the middle. I am looking for bigger ones. Indeed its more than that. I must make a note to explore this theme in more detail. Maybe i need to meet with Pastor P or Pastor S. I feel its time i started getting a different kind of leadership

Last night i had an interesting sleep. I was thinking about my friends Baptism. Her story was so amazing. She went through a lot from homelessness to illness etc. All the while she kept Him near in her thoughts and she kept coming to church. Now she is Born Again. That where i want to be Born Again saved etc. But I am stuck.

I dont know if anyone knows what it is like to be stuck. I'm making more of an effort to pray and just simply say hello my Lord. I can talk about God for ages to where my excitement is spilling over and feel like the kid that just wants to speak but...there is something missing. A void that needs filling.

One of my challenges is being completely focused especially when i am in church but its hard. The best part of church for me is the singing. I dont have to worry about does that person like my voice because we are all singing at the top of our lungs. Pastor did mention in service that singing, music aka praise and worship is a key part of church. So that bits easy right. My focus is to get wrapped up in it when i sing at church. I sing at home, past week i have listened to only Gospel music. Only because I'm reaching for something.

Oh yeah there was a young boy that was Baptised sunday gone. He was choked up in tears. So you know i am sitting in church thinking he gets it, what about me

But then i think thats just it or is it! I need to focus on my relationship with Him on one2one basis. I am trying, am PUSHing. I just have to reach there well rather get there.

Im listening

He is powerful, so move over storm

It turns out i skipped a section on reading. I jumped straight into leviticus when i needed to read exodus. Anyway all day at work in between dealing with customers. I read the bible online.

Reading about moses birth pharoah the egyptians, israel out of bondage and the parting of the red sea. Oh yeah the passover.

What i am finding interesting is that my outlook on these stories have changed. For so long they have simply been stories told in sunday school. Now i am seeing the connection. Dots are connecting.

I do have questions, but unsure if i can question it. Your either destined to be in God's army or not. Then again maybe you can choose to be in God's army as the egyptian midwives did by not killing the baby boys as instructed by pharoah.

My concern was with egypts demise. My understanding is that Egyptians were the chosen people at some point and through times lost their way and so came about Israel. Please correct me according to God's words, if you feel i interpret this part wrong.

Whats even more bizarre for me is that my friend and my sons godfather sent me this text message :
"Stop telling God how big your storm is.
Instead tell your storm how big your God is.
Be blessed and let the world know that you are a wonderful child of God!"
I do believe that God sends His word to you in more ways than one. What is more amazing or makes me look in wonder at the Lord is that few days ago Pastor Patrick was talking about the fact that we as humans were given dominion over the earth. A gift from God. Have we lost our way. Jesus is a way indeed. I believe there is a power that we have but how to utilise for good.
Maybe I need a conversation with God, Jesus, Holy spirit. so far i do understand one leads you to the other. mmmm

chronological reading

14 November 2006
I was just browsing as I normally do on the world wide web. Whenever I type in google 'Bible' and shows up. I normally use the latter site as a means of onlime resource. I decided to explore the 1st site.

I am grateful to God that I did do this. For one I am now reading the Bible chronologically.

So far i have covered creation and the fall of man. I have just completed the story of Job.

I found Job's story quite powerful. It made my sleep quite stirring and restless. It made me think that when there is nothing left but my spirit I am still able to talk to God. Because of the earth is our flesh, but of spirit is our soul and ultimate being. Spirit to spirit

I will explore these themes in more detail later, just ensuring you see where i am with my reading verse. Moses is next in the reading plan

Stay blessed!

my spiritual journey

8 November 2006
This blog is to document my growth in spirit
i attended church one day and Pastor Sandra mentioned we need to think outside the box. So that is what i am doing.

The whole point of this blog is to record my journey and how i get there. I do feel that i have now reached a point in my life where my faith needs to go beyond a prayer here and regular church attendance.

I'm reaching for the light and praying I get there soon.

I go to PUSH - pray until something happens

Stay blessed!
