Deeper into LOVE...Jesus Calling/What the Father is Like

Looking forward to this journey...going deeper into HIS love with these two books.  Wow I have already cried several times just reading the first couple chapters!!!  

Here is a preview:

"I am the Author of all truth, all life. Before an event comes into being in your life I know it. I have authored it. I am the eternal One, who has planned to disclose myself to you. When you seek me earnestly, when you yearn for my presence, when you long to know me as I am in reality-it is because I am calling to your soul. Yes, I call for you, and I come to you, my beloved child, because I yearn to meet you. I await your love and childlike trust. And the more you get to know me the more you will trust me. Open your heart to me now...just like a child. 
I am your Father...and your Friend...your companion on all the pathways of your life. I am never far away. I am present with you, to preserve and enrich every moment of your life. For I hold in my hand all things that concern you. I have planned...I have authored...all the circumstances of your life. All the circumstances that I authorize are intended to reveal-in the fabric of your life-that I arrange your circumstances in order to make clear to you the vast breadth of my character. I want you to know there is nothing that can happen to you that is out of my control. In everything I invite you to draw near to me. Be very sure I am near to you. And I understand you fully!"

Stand Still

"Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord."Exodus 14:13
These words contain God's command to the believer when he is reduced to great straits and brought into extraordinary difficulties. He cannot retreat; he cannot go forward; he is shut up on the right hand and on the left; what is he now to do? The Master's word to him is, "STAND STILLl." It will be well for him if at such times he listens only to his Master's word, for other and evil advisers come with their suggestions. Despair whispers, "Lie down and die; give it all up." But God would have us put on a cheerful courage, and even in our worst times, rejoice in his love and faithfulness.
Cowardice says, "Retreat; go back to the worldling's way of action; you cannot play the Christian's part, it is too difficult. Relinquish your principles." But, however much Satan may urge this course upon you, you cannot follow it if you are a child of God. His divine fiat has bid thee go from strength to strength, and so thou shalt, and neither death nor hell shall turn thee from thy course. What, if for a while thou art called to stand still, yet this is but to renew thy strength for some greater advance in due time. Precipitancy cries, "do something. Stir yourself; to stand still and wait, is sheer idleness." We must be doing something at once--we must do it so we think--instead of looking to the Lord, who will not only do SOMETHING but will do EVERYTHING. Presumption boasts, "If the sea be before you, march into it and expect a miracle." But Faith listens neither to Presumption, nor to Despair, nor to Cowardice, nor to Precipitancy, but it hears God say, "Stand still," and immovable as a rock it stands. "Stand still;"--keep the posture of an upright man, ready for action, expecting further orders, cheerfully and patiently awaiting the directing voice; and it will not be long ere God shall say to you, as distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel, "GO FORWARD."- Spurgeon

Matt Pitt-The Basement WHITEOUT 2012

"You don't know what's about to happen, you feel like you could get defeated. the closer you get to the DREAM, the BIGGER and HARDER the opponent gets.  When you lose, do you feel like "did I let the fans down??"  If you let God take your life God will take you from championship to game to game to game---if you know you are a champion you will play like a champion and God always has the victory.  What makes a champion is every single day. "-Matt Pitt

"We don't want big crowds we want a BIG heaven."

If you worship everyday, watch God take you further than you could ever dream. 

"Don't give up until the miracle happens! The Breakthrough is just one more step."

With a strength not my own...

This one is for my grandpa!  I heard this song this morning and it reminds me of the kind of music we listen to together!  Now put your hands together and praise and have BLESSED day! :-)
