" Blessed be the Name, blessed be the Name,
blessed be the name of the Lord!"
I love the chorus to this hymn
and sing it in my heart
when rejoicing over the goodness of the Lord.
My dear and sweet friends,
blessed be the name of the Lord,
for He has blessed my heart richly.
" The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich,
and he addeth no sorrow with it"
( Proverbs 10:22 )
This is a beautiful piece of scripture
I claimed during my time away and,
with the health issues I have been going through.
The goodness and grace of my precious Heavenly Father
is more than I can put into words dear friends.
My God, my Savior and the healer of my body
has touched me with His tender hand and mercies.
In a very short time I have made great progress!
All my praise and thanks go to my God,
with an overflowing believing heart while
trusting in God's promises found in the Scriptures.
"Father I thank thee that
thou hast heard me"
This was the prayer of Jesus when he brought Lazarus back to life.
By faith I trusted in the Lord
knowing He would hear my prayer
because Philippians 4:6 tells me ~
" Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known unto God"
By "prayer and supplication"
supplication is for particular needs.
"We can continue in prayer,
and watch in the same with thanksgiving"
( Colossians 4:2 )
God desires that we would be in prayer always
and watching with thanksgiving
as He answers those prayers according to His will.
His love for us is far greater
than we can even fathom.
His ways are far greater
than all that we can do for ourselves.
His ways are perfect
no matter what the outcome of our prayers may be.
we watch we wait and we trust Him, with a thankful heart.
And then... We are to pray one for another.
"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man
You my dear and sweet friends
were out there praying for me I know,
because I could feel those prayers and your love.
From my heart ~ thank you!
Thank you for your love care and concern,
my heart is truly blessed.
Precious Heavenly Father.
Your love brings me to my knees
with a heart full of gratitude and praise.
You care about every detail of our lives,
more than we even care for ourselves.
Many times we fail and yet ~
You are there to pick us up
and love on us in all the areas we are so in need of.
Thank you. Thank you for so much!
To God be the Glory!
