walk through the shadows

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. ps 23:4

Even though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
For You are with me
Your rod and Your staff
They comfort me
Oh, they comfort me

What do we really say when we sing lines such a these in worship. What do we really mean well in these past few weeks I feel as if I have found a better understanding of what it really means to count t the cost to walk throw the shows. The lord tells us to fear nothing because he had already gone ahead of us. He has made planed a path for each one of our lives. He has placed us in areas in our live wither that is the place we work or the place were we go to school or were we live in concordance with his plans. Goes that mean when we cry when we cry out to the lord he says I know. No not at all instead he listen and gives us confer buts people in out lives who can pick us people who can remind us that there is an end. The pain will not last for ever one day our harts will be hole and there will be now more tears. The lord is always there he tells us over and over again that he is their, there is nothing we can do to make our father our daddy go away. When our harts bark his breaks when we cry he feels our pain, when we scream and yell he listens. So cry out to the lord for he already knows and he has gone a head out of love and made a end to our pain. For the pain of a breaking heart hurt but it will not last forever even though it may fell like it will it won't. In the past couple week I have and am learning what the lord really meant when he said thought I walk throw the shadows of the valley of death fear no evil because I have gone ahead. He went a head and he knows. He knows and he will never leave. There is hope even though when walking through the shadows it may feel like there is not.

inside out

the lord has many plans for each one of our lives as his children we never really know what they are or what they will bring. lately my life as gone from crazy to hard. the other day i was reading in my bible in Matthew 21-28 about the faith of the Canaanite woman and how her faith saved her daughter. this passage made me think. can our faith my faith as a daughter of the king be strong enough to save my loved ones. can my faith reach the lost that i love and save them. this women faith saved her daughter so why can't my faith save my love one. but then i realized that it has to be through my loved one faith that they are saved not through my own. this made my hart hurt to think of love ones who are lost. but then i remembered that my faith can not save them but i can fight for them through praying for them. lately i have also been thinking about forgiveness and how i will never ever have the change to really share how i really felt in that time with that loved one. so brothers sisters if you have not forgiving some one talk it out with the lord pray through it , if you have something you want to tell some tell them do not Waite because you will never really know if your will have that chance. because after all we do not live for us but for the lord. and even throw times get hard and our faith is week and we may find our self's like job asking why or like Johna running the lord is still lord and we need to let him be . he will never leave us or forsake us.
The Faith of a Canaanite Woman 21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.”

23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”

24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”

25 The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.

26 He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

27 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”

28 Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment.

Life brings surprise lately, life a throw several curve balls at me. however throw it all I am remained how good the lord is in my life. Lately I find myself reading john 15. John 15 tells us about how the lord cuts the bad of and make the good bigger and brighter. John 15 also talks about how if we remain in the lord ,he will remain in us. We are the children of the lord we are like trees that are unmovable by waves. As I read john 15 I am remained of who I am, that I am a daughter of the king. That the lord is a good god that he never leaves or forsake me. Through the lord we are giving the strength to over come issues that are but in front of us. I am remind of a saying that a great women of God once told me “ what do you want, how badly to you want it, what are you will to do to get it ” and really as child of the lord what I want to do Is to follow the lord and only do his will. So I know that through the lord I can face anything that GOD buts in front of me. Because the will only give me what he knows I can handle. Yes sometimes I feel like my world is falling apart , it hurt and makes my skin crawl

but through the dark the lord brings light.

walking through

The Lord as a plan for each and every person and we never really know what the plan is. Sometimes however we get a small look and what we do with that small look is up to us. lately the Lord as turned ever plan i have had up side down and all around. even though i do not like the fact that my plans have change and a new plan as been but in front of me I know that it is OK because it the Lord plan. That the thing those plans that were change were mine and not the Lords and yes the new plan that the Lord is walking me down is hard but it is good. even though right now I look around all I see is things falling down and it hard i know it will be OK . The Lord tells us in his word even though we walk through the shadows of death and we see body left and right it OK because he is their. And that the thing that i have been leaning on. Because it not through me Strength but through his i will get throw, with the Lord we can over come all. look at David and the giant it was only through the Lord that he was able to over come him and have victory, that was it is that we have to remember not through us but through the Lord and his strength

grace leaning on the lord

every day brings new things , new experiences ,new thoughts and of course new battles. but with all of this a new day also brings a clean start for the Lord tells us in his word not to worry about tomorrow for today as enough worry in it self. but how many of us worry about whats coming next . what do i have to do tomorrow how will i pay for this? can i really do this ? am i really heading in to this situation this way?
the world we live in today is so focused on what coming next we miss what is happening now we miss the little things.
as a college student i am always going you can ask those who know me they never see me. but my point is this in today's run around our we missing what the Lord has for us because we are going so much we do not stop to hear him. to hear the Lord voice to say Lord here i am , do we have we missed something he has for us.
that is why i believe the most important thing we can do is to stop and lesson. let tomorrow worry about tomorrow and even if it only a little while spend time with the Lord because after all it in those times when the Lord does the great things in are life's. because after all i do not know about you but i do not want to live for this world i am living for him and his glory.
The lord already knows what is going on in our life each day, he knows what is happening even before we do. so why stress.
i know for me it because some times it is really easy to get caught up in the world and what is going on and forget that the lord as me in his hands and he knows what i need when i need even before i do.
he knows when i need grace to make it through the day when i just need time with him. he knows all after all he is Abba . Lord of Lord king of kings and so much more.

october fun

hey guys Nicole here

so October as show to be a good month with lots going on. currently i have just fished taking theology 1 and am about to start old testament 2. The classes here at bcom continue to push me feather in to the lord and his greatness. i am learning so much that will be very useful wither i am mistering to people on the street or i am on the mission filed.
every day beings a new lesson, lessons that grow me in my relationship with the lord.

the lord as been doing a lot of work in my heart in many area he had been removing things and replacing them with goodness. this as and is a good but hard time because as great as it is that the lord is working on my heart it is not always fun. but through pain comes growth.
i am reminded of a song lirc that says beauty from ashes. right now that is what the lord is going in my life he is bring good from the bad.

something that i have learned this semester is this the lord as given each person a story, a testimony of what he has done in peoples life. these story's are meant to be shared so that they can be used to 1-give Glory the father 2- change a person life and give hope.
i never really thought that my story would ever help any one but know i now it was meant to be shared and give glory.
