how do you know?

SO HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD LOVES YOU?

God says He loves you…

Psalm 145:9 “God is all mercy and grace–not quick to anger, is rich in love.”

You’re never out of His sight…

Psalm 139:3 “You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.  You know everything I do.”

He cares about every detail of your life…

Matthew 10:30 “And the very hairs on your head are all numbered.”

He gave you the capacity to enjoy all kinds of pleasure…

1 Timothy 6:17 “Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable.  Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.”

He has good plans for your life…

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

He forgives you…

Psalm 86:5 “For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.”

He is lovingly patient with you…

Psalm 145:8 “The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy.”

And this is just the beginning…

the WHOLE serenity prayer…

purple-serenity-evening-water

Did you know that there’s more to the Serenity Prayer?

Goodness knows who wrote it, since originally thought to be Protestant theologian, Rienhold Niebuhr.   However, the origin isn’t what this particular post is about.  I’m more interested in the second verse.

Yes!  There is a second verse!  I think the second verse is even more important than the first verse!!  It’s beautiful!!!

God grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change;

Courage to change the things I can;

And wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;

Enjoying one moment at a time;

Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

Taking, as He did, this sinful world

As it is, not as I would have it;

Trusting that He will make all things right

If I surrender to His Will;

That I may be reasonably happy in this life

And supremely happy with Him

Forever in the next.

Amen.

Fear…the dark room where negatives are made…

Got phobias?

pho-bi-a: a persistent, abnormal or irrational fear of a specific thing or situation that compels one to avoid the feared stimulus.

Probably the biggest fear of all is uncertainty and lately it seems we have a lot to fear.

It’s also been said that exposing ourselves to our biggest demons is the best way to move past them……..what do you think?

Check out this list to see what YOU’RE afraid of……

  • Animals?  Zoophobia
  • Ants?  Myrmecophobia
  • Beards?  Pogonophobia
  • Bees?  Apiphobia
  • Birds?  Ornithophobia
  • Blood?  Hematophobia
  • Choking?  Pnigophobia
  • Crossing bridges?  Gephyrophobia
  • Crowds?  Ochlophobia
  • Dirt?  Rupophobia
  • Dreams?  Oneirophobia
  • Flowers?  Anthohobia
  • Flying?  Aerophobia
  • Frogs?  Ranidaphobia
  • Garlic?  Alliumphobia
  • Germs?  Mysophobia
  • Haircuts?  Tonsurphobia
  • Height?  Acrophobia
  • Hospitals?  Nosocomephobia
  • Illness?  Nosemaphobia
  • Insects?  Entomophobia
  • Lakes?  Limnophobia
  • Long words?  Sesquipedalopphobia
  • Men?  Androphobia
  • Money?  Chrometophobia
  • Moths?  Mottephobia
  • Night, darkness?  Nyctophobia
  • Plants?  Batonophobia
  • Shadows?  Sciophobia
  • Snakes?  Ophidiophobia
  • Spiders?  Arachnophobia
  • Sun?  Heliophobia
  • Touch?  Haptophobia
  • Trees?  Dendrophobia
  • Vegetables?  Lachnaophobia
  • Water?  Hydrophobia
  • Women?  Gynophobia
  • Worms?  Scoleciphobia

On the flip side, here’s what the Bible says about fear:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

“I can do everything through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13).

“So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?’” (Hebrews13:6).
