How can we maintain the Peace that Passes all Understanding?

This is a repost from 9-9-2008 When one works with four year olds there is never any down time. It really pays to stay a step or two ahead of them. This can be extremely tiring and mind boggling too.
I was really stressed after spending seven hours dealing with non-stop behavior issues. All the while trying to actually get some teaching done. Never mind the personal issue I have going on in my family.

I prayed about the bad attitude I had and the way I was feeling. I prayed for God to please help me be the light to those children that He wanted me to be.
I felt better as I went to bed but I was still feeling bad about the ugly feeling I had and what it might have done to the children.
God spoke to me from His word the next morning when I opened my Bible to read scripture and pray for two High School students. I participate in Wall of Prayer where I read a scripture and pray for two High School students everyday to keep them covered in prayer.
The scripture was Psalm 19:14
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.”
This spoke to my heart to be sure to control the words and the tone of the words that come out of my mouth because they reflect the meditation of my heart. I must control them so they will be acceptable in the sight of the Almighty God whom I choose to serve.
He is my Rock and my Redeemer whom I thank daily.
Until next time think about Romans 8:28 “We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who are called according to His purpose.

Adonai God Our LORD

This picture was drawn by my son.

Adonai is the Hebrew word that means LORD  in English.
Adonai (a-do-ni) is found in the Bible  439 times
Exodus 15:17(NASB)
You will bring them and plant  them in the mountain of Your  inhertiance,
The place, O LORD, which You have made for Your dwelling,
The sanctuary, O LORD, which Your hands established.
Deuteronomy 10: 17(NASB)
“For the LORD your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords,
the great, the  mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality
nor take a bribe.
1 Corinthians 8: 6 (NASB)
yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and
we exist for Him; and one Lord, JesusChrist, by whom are all things, and
we exist through Him.

Don’t Let Your Light Blow Out

God will see us through anything and everything.
He wants us to come through the storm with our light shinning.  
Trust God to help us not let our light blow out.
Then we will not go through the storm in darkness.
God will be our light and we will be a light to others for God.

ISAIAH 55:8-9 (NASB,Tecarta)
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher that your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

Until next time. Romans 8:28

El Roi The God Who Sees

This picture was taken in Zambia as we traveled through the mountains.

El Roi is commonly translated as
“The God Who Sees”.
El Roi is only used one time in the Bible, in Genesis 16:13

How many times do we need to hear it to realize that God sees everything?

Genesis 16:9 Then the angel of the LORD said to her, “Return to your mistress,
and submit yourself to her authority. ” Moreover, the angel of the LORD said to her,
“I will greatly multiply your descendants so that they will be too many to count.”
Genesis 16: 13 
Then she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, “You are a God who sees.” for she said,  “Have I even remained alive here after seeing Him?”
This was Hagar’s response after she encountered the Angel of the LORD.
Hagar,  the maidservant of Sarai, had run away because she was being mistreated by Saria.
Do we need to return to something that we have run away from?
God–El Roi sees everything.  He will not leave us alone. He will provide exactly what we need. Exactly when we need it.
Make it a Romans 8:28 day.
