Psalm 16:8-11: Power Up your inner strength

I know the lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety. For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your holy one to rot in the grave. You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures
of living with you forever. (Psalms 16:8-11 NLT)

After reading this doesn’t a sense of peace just wash over you? To know despite your mess and where you are now God is not leaving you to “rot in the grave.” God’s promises always set me at ease. His ultimate example of love, of having Jesus martyred for our sins, and then have Him rise from the dead makes me feel forever indebted. I can never do everything right but I can attempt to live righteously.

So even when I know I may mess up, I know He knew it would happen and has already provided a way out. Jesus says, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know.” (Acts of the Apostles 1:7 NLT) He knew when Judas would betray Him, and He knew would I fall as well. However as the bible is my instruction for life I try to live like a David as a woman after God’s own heart. As a child of God, I know He will pick me up when I fall. I know as a follower of Jesus temptation will come but I have an inner strength to tap into to see me through……. Have you tapped into your inner strength? Do you know you don’t have to be shaken because The Lord is with you? Do you trust God to show you the way?

What is Grace?

I heard of this thing called Grace

and everyone is talking about it.

They even have a song about it,

have you heard it Amazing Grace?

 

I long to get some of it but I’m being selfish

you have given me a taste.

But Father O God is it wrong to ask for a buffett?

 

You speak about greed and that’s a trait we shouldn’t have

but if you look in my heart

You are a mate I couldn’t have.

 

It wasn’t your choice but mines

because I wanted to act a fool

and push you behind.

 

I always knew there would come a time

when you would turn my head

It’s like that forbidden love that one’s heart

could never shed

 

But there is a difference!

 

You are giving it freely well,

What is the problem?

What can’t I see?

 

I say I surrender, all praises go to you, you have spared me,

shown mercy, delivered me, and

yet you still aren’t through

 

Lord what do you want me to do? Tell me and I will

Remove me from situations not to be tempted

so I can hear  only from you

 

I am begging for relationship like I have done so many times in this fleshly world

You said you were different and I can experience true love through you and your word

Well God you made me so you know what it takes to make nothing not shake me

I want you to wrap me in your arms and never let go

and I vow that in return I will share your goodness bringing more to the Kingdom letting all your righteousness show

Use me God as an example let me be the pawn, elevate me to the Queen with elegance and brawn.

You are magnificent my God thank you for showing your face.

Showing mercy on me.

now God where’s that Grace?
