Cast Up A Highway



Somedays, Just Gotta Praise!

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 8:10 AM

Clean the counters; put the coffee on; wash my hands; look out the window. Smile. My busyness ceased for a few, as I beheld the sky full of lovely pink tinted clouds. A smile immediately burst upon my face. “O God, You are so good! Thank You for this gift!” We have so much to be thankful for, little things and big things.

Yes, good morning, my Lord. There is none like YOU. When I looked out my window this morning, and saw those pink tinted clouds saying “I bless your day, Mary!” My heart sang, “You are almighty God, Creator of the universe. You are the Alpha and the Omega! You have set the stars in place and named them all. You ordained beauty in our skies and on our earth. There is none greater than You! And You love me?”

Lord not only did You give us Jesus to teach us and die for us, You then sent Holy Spirit to indwell us, and from that close position, teach us, guide us, and protect us. We are Your kids and You love us so much! Because You love us we can trust You; You even wrote us a book, and in it You promised us many things, and You are always true to Your Word! Oh my God! Thank You!

As the years fly by, it becomes more work to remain healthy. The activities of youth have used up some of the body stamina and joint usage. Yes, pain has become a part of life, but it’s ok. I can deal with it, and it is not constant. It just reminds me to be thankful for the wonderful physical condition God designed for me. When nasty C attacked my body, You, Jesus, were right there walking every step of the way with me, bringing me to victory; and You brought out of me a book telling the world how one can go through hard times with joy in their hearts. [Cast Up A Highway]

Loving Father, this morning I want to thank You for mercy and grace. I am so imperfect, but You love me anyway! You continue to work with me, molding me, shaping me into the person You created me to be. Help me fulfill the potential You put in me. Give me words to convict, to open eyes to see. Let Your love flow through me to everyone I come in contact with; pour Your Words through me to hearts today as I work; guide me Holy Spirit today and everyday.

Psalm 103:1 (NLV)

Praise for God’s Love

Praise the Lord, O my soul. And all that is within me, praise His holy name. 

My God, You love us all so much! We are Your beloved children, and You care for us each moment of the day (when we let You). I trust You. I love You. I praise and worship You alone, my beloved Lord!

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.

Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!

Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:

Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.

Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
