Thankful Thursday

Father God, I cry out to You with an overflowing heart at this midnight hour. The enemy continues to try to defeat me, but he is nothing but a big loser. You and I together cannot, and will not be defeated. You are the banner I proudly wave over my head, now, and through out eternity. You are the lifter of my head, the healer of my heart, soul, body, and mind. I am forever grateful for You, and Your love. Without You, I would already be dead, but with You, I can, and will face tomorrow. If more storms come my way, You will be my Lighthouse. You are my precious Father God, I love You, I love You.

Denise, I'm praying and agreeing with you. Indeed He alone can heal us, He alone can restore our strength. May the Lord embrace you in times like this.

I may not visit your site so often but I'll remember you always in my prayers. Thanking Him for allowing me to visit your site.

Blessings!

I appreciate the reference to storms and lighthouse...as God IS your guiding light.

I read a few posts below this one dear Denise, and am as always in awe of your stamina and will to carry on in the trust of your maker!! You, as I've said so many times before, are an inspiration to all of us.

Precious Sister, I know that your heart for GOD is pleasing to Him and your heart-cry prayer is heard in Heaven. God is at work in every situation and I'm trusting Him along with you.

Thank you for your recent visits to my blog and your ever so loving and warm words.

Praying for you dear one...

Hello Denise.. this is the first time I'm reading your blog. It is heart-breaking to see the suffering you are enduring.

I know about those voices.. they come at me sometimes.. telling me I'm not ever going to be loved by anyone, that I'll never be good enough. I know about the weak moments when you can give in to them and end up a crying heap of flesh on the floor. They attack my own daughter as well.. they've made her scratch herself with scissors.

We CAN break free, because WE are children of God and in Him we can do all things, because Christ strengthens us. I loved that phrase you used about God being the banner waving above your head. I've said the same thing except I used the words shield and sword.

I will be praying for you to have strength and courage. I pray for your physical challenges as well. No mountain is to large for God! Trust in Him!

God bless you!

Remember that the God of the Universe is a sovereign God, the only God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who reigns NOW and FOREVER! He will accomplish his purposes. He is loving and good.
Blessings, Denise!

Remember: It's not that 'there's nothing that God and I can't accomplish together,' but that 'GOD will accomplish His will in my life. I will hold on to Him and trust Him.'

I know what you mean in the dark hours how hard it is..... Nancy never gets much better. We were at the hospital on Tuesday with her and the lab work came back saying she has inflammation in her blood. I am waiting on calls from her specialist to tell us what to do about this.... Much love, Carolyn

I still have my arms wrapped tightly around you in a never-ending hug filled with faith, hope and love.

My prayers continue to rise UP to our Father on your behalf.

I love you dearly my friend. He has wrapped you securely and ever so safely in His garment. Rest there and take refuge. Continue to take little bites and little sips sister...He's standing before you with His offering. He wants to see you flourish here on this earth for Him. He loves you. I love you. We all love you.

Yes Yes Yes...He is your Lighthouse. The lifter of your beautiful head, the healer of your beautiful heart, soul, body, and mind.

Oh Lord how we love you so.

Stand tall sister and firm even in the weakest of hours. Our prayers along with yours shall surpass anything here on this earth. And you know that all that is impossible here is absolutely possible through Him.

He hears our every heart cry, feels our every pain and ache and catches every one of our tears.

You are so very beautiful and so very loved my sister...my friend. You've stood by me over the past couple of years when the rough waters seemed endless. YOU ARE STRONG for He lives within you. You are worthy of life. You have so much to offer everyone whom you meet. You are that person that everyone hopes to meet in this lifetime...the one who's heart is filled with endless love for people, for Him. Oh sister, you are so worthy.

I love you...

Denise, I will not be blogging for a while and will be out of town next week. We're going to help get our grandson settled in college. His mother is having a hard time with his leaving home so she needs pray and support as his sister also.

Will be praying for you and look forward to hearing good news from you.

May God be with you as He has been and give you the healing that you so deserve.
Blessings, my friend, <3 AE

I'm standing on God's Promises and praying for you who are "fearfully and wonderfully made" to be WELL in Jesus Christ, standing and praising Him with you and with all the LOVE we have for Him and HE has for you. You need to purpose to BE WHOLE and WELL; this is His plan for you! Full recovery.
There is nothing to difficult for God! He is more rthan enough! Give all your pain and suffering to Him. Do what you must to change the course of this disorder and get back to eating and maintaining a healthy YOU! We need you! Eddie needs you. We are WAITING!

Hug and many prayers believing God's BEST for you,

Ohhh, I forgot why I wanted to leave a comment. I am having internet connection problems in and out. I did not want you to worry if you come back and can't reach me or get a response. I will be using "cyber" places but not daily as I wait to see what my IS Provider will be doing.

Thinking of you always and sending my love,
Peggy
