not defeated

 

Life is sometimes hard.  We do not always live on top of the mountain spiritual.  We don't always feel that God is at work around us.  But despite he is there.  He will not let us fall where he can't catch us.   Let us not give up on what God can do for us.

2 Corinthians 4:7-12 - 7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

 

 

 

 The spirit has been whispering to me for some time to speak at church, and this Sunday I am speaking for Women's Sunday.  I plan to give my testimony and share some verses.  Please pray this week that my words will be God's words and that others may find hope.

  3. not crushed, in despair, abandoned or destroyed...all because of our wonderful GOD...amen

    as you prepare, remember the man in Mark 5:1-20...never even heard JESUS teach, simply witnessed to what GOD had done for him in one moment in time.

    Although the people begged JESUS to leave, later, in Mark 7:53, look at how they clamored to be near Him...all because of one broken man's witness...

  6. I know I've read that passage more than once before, but it hasn't reverberated through me as it does today. That's why I am loving Hear It, Use It -- it's opening my eyes to Scripture in a new way.

    Thanks for linking up again this week -- and I will pray for you as you prepare for your talk at church!

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
