    Romans 8:26
    So too the Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
    ---This is from an Amplified Topical Reference Bible [which I love!], but I have omitted the typical parenthetical definitions and etc to avoid confusion.
    I have struggled with depression for most of my life. God created me this way to struggle with this issue. I do not understand why, and probably never will. I choose to put my faith in Him anyway, and to love Him regardless of what my life brings. He is my Savior, and my life belongs to Him.

    John 6:35

    "Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty."

    Surely this Word of Jesus speaks to us today and is so comforting and encouraging.

    peace and blessings of the season..

    for his steadfast love endures forever.

    for his steadfast love endures forever.

    3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    4 to him who alone does great wonders,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    5 to him who by understanding made the heavens,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    6 to him who spread out the earth above the waters,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    7 to him who made the great lights,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    8 the sun to rule over the day,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    9 the moon and stars to rule over the night,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    10 to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    11 and brought Israel out from among them,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    12 with a strong hand and an outstretched arm,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    14 and made Israel pass through the midst of it,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    22 a heritage to Israel his servant,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.

    23 It is he who remembered us in our low estate,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    24 and rescued us from our foes,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

    25 he who gives food to all flesh,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.

    26 Give thanks to the God of heaven,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.


    I posted this entire Psalm today, it was one of my readings. Sometimes when we are low...feeling without strength...waiting for Him to give us strength....sometimes it is good to remember all the things He has done and continues to do...to give Him thanks...to remember His steadfast love endures forever.


    Be Thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power. Ps 21:13

    We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners:
    the Lord fulfill all thy petitions.
    Ps 20:5

    Rev. 21:6

    "And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely." (Rev. 21:6) (KJV)

    I am using the last part of this scripture (on my other posts) as the scripture on my signature as we soon start 2009 with hope and peace in my heart for a good year in Christ.

    Jesus is our way, our truth, and our life..indeed, the beginning and the end.

    Psalm 23:3

    "He restores my soul,
    He Leads me in the paths of righteousness
    For His name's sake." (Psalm 23:3)

    This verse from Psalm 23..speaks of a Shepherd who comforts and cares for each of us; one who knows our every need. He knows when we are weary and when we need rest. He knows when we need to be restored and refreshed. His response to each of us differs according to what our needs are.

    As we are beginning 2009 we can be comforted and encouraged by this verse and thus be lead by Christ in the paths of His righteousnous.

    For His name's sake..

    Because He cares for His sheep.


    "The flowers appear on the earth,
    the time of singing has come,
    and the voice of the turtledove
    is heard in our land
    ." SofS 2:12 (RSV)

    Quote Originally Posted by PastorMike View Post
    This is the verse that brought me to Christ. I was raised in church all my life and yet I had a mistaken preception of what salvation is. I thought that God accepted us on the grounds of our merit. I had went to the altar time after time and promised God a bunch of things that I just couldn't do, such as, "I'll never drink again," "I'll never cuss again," "I'll never lie again," etc. And I would find myself unable to keep these promises, so I got to the place that I was bitter towards God. You see, I thought that God just didn't want me, because I was serious with all the promises I made, but I didn't understand that, "It is not in man that walketh to direct his own steps." I really thought that God meant for me to go to hell, because I really gave it my best to keep all of my vain promises. Then one night in a little store front mission, I saw a congregation with the love and the Spirit of God all over them. I sat there in that home-made slatted pew angry because I couldn't be like them. I thought that God just didn't want me. I thought, God why can't I be like these people? Then the young preacher in the pulpit quoted John 16:24, "Hitherto have ye asked nothing in My name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full." It was like the Holy Spirit sat down beside of me and said, "That's why you have never been saved. You've been trying to do it all by yourself and you've left Christ and His cross out of all your efforts." When the preacher said, "Every head bowed, and every eye closed, I ran to an old black mourner's bench in front of the pulpit in that little building and from my heart I told God that I hadn't come that night to promise anything, but rather to accept the promise that He had made to me. I told Him that I believed that He had given Christ to take my sin upon Himself and die in my place on Calvary's tree. I told Him that I trusted in His vicarious death, His burial, and in His glorious resurrection. And God spoke peace to my heart. That night I surrendered to my inability and trusted completely in Christs sufficiency. I have been saved every since! Bless His name!!!!!! Oh yeah, Remember, Charity never faileth!
    PastorMike, this is a wonderful testimony which belongs in our testimonies section ..so I am moving it to that section where more will read it. It will appear there as a new thread. But, I am leaving it quoted above so others can read it here too. God bless you for sharing it with us.

    Here is the link to it in the testimonies section.

    I was thinking of these ones, today. I was reminded that God is OUR God, always, and that He will love us and lead us through everything in our lives.... into eternity.

    Romans 8:28 -- "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."

    2 Corinthians 4:16-18 -- "Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
    -- Your ~sister~ in Christ.... a "Kaffinated Kittykat"!!

    ROMANS 5:8. Forgiven. Freed. Humbled. Amazed. Grateful. Relying on Christ.

    Love is not a place to come and go as we please
    It's a house we enter in, then commit to never leave
    So lock the door behind you, and throw away the key
    We'll work it out together, let it bring us to our knees.....

    Jude 24-25

    Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,

    To God our Saviour
    Who alone is wise,
    Be glory and majesty,
    Dominion and power,
    Both now and forever,
    Amen.

    Psalm 94:19

    Psalm 94:19 "In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul."

    God is our comforter. He doesn't forsake us. He is faithful.

    Ps. 119:105.

    Here's a scripture to go with the previous poster's post since one isn't included.

    "Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." (Ps. 119:105, NIV).

    Whatever we are going through it is comforting to know that His Word is lighting the path for us.
