The Answer, The Rock

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

I guess that we all need a little help from time to time. I mean, I never have all the answers, as much as I’d love to think that I do. But, I know the one ‘true’ answer to all of my discomforts, diseases, and stress… JESUS CHRIST, and  Him alone!

The old song, “I Go to the Rock” rings throughout my being.

Where do I go when there’s nobody else to turn to?
Who do I talk to when nobody wants to listen?
Who do I lean on when there’s no foundation stable?
I go to The Rock
I know He’s able
I go to The Rock!
I’m thinking we all need that little encouragement.  Don’t let a day go by without running toward The Rock!

I run to Him,

Heart to Heart

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Perhaps it would be best to NOT rely on the Newspaper or MSM for correct information. (fb incl.)
i.e…”Some trust in chariots…etc.
My trust is in The Lord!

That being said. My prayer is for our nation, our President and this administration. I add, for our Pastors and spiritual leadership.

I was just thinking… as a pastor, if a person leaves and goes to another church, it is not correct for us to go meddle in the affairs of that church. (i.e. Don’t step in another pastor’s pulpit without being invited by that pastor.)
The news media continues to ‘remind’ people of what ‘used to be’. The media is causing division and strife and the church seems to be buying in. I’m reminded of the children of Israel with Moses, remembering Egypt fondly when the hard times came (the leeks and the onions).
To the church today…set yourself to move forward. Pray, and seek the face and heart of God. It’s really up to you. Folks, I choose to follow after God’s Word and pray for our President, our nation’s leaders, our pastors and churches.

We need #wisdom.

Precious Time With Him

Friday, May 6th, 2016

Late night prayer and study time:

Sometimes I’m looking for answers and I feel the need to get quiet before Him.

James 4:10 AMP

HUMBLE yourselves [with an attitude of repentance and insignificance ] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up, He will give you propose].

I don’t know every answer, but I do know The ANSWER!  In Him will I trust. There is nobody like Him!

Praying for family members. Giving God thanks.

 

‘My’ Testimony

Monday, August 18th, 2014

This is my personal testimony:

God has been faithful to me.   He watched over me, and protected me over and over again.

A few years ago, we were preparing to leave the house on our usual Wednesday morning jaunt.  I was rushing, grabbing  my purse, my books and my cup of ‘hot’ tea.   (we had just boiled the water for the tea and placed it in a to-go cup)  As I was rushing out of the door, my foot got caught in a cord.  I was thrown into the front door with the hot tea going directly into my face…I fell into the wall screaming.  Eugene was in the car waiting for me…  by the time he got back in the house the skin was already coming off in clumps.  I was drenched with cold water, but the burning would not stop.   He rushed me to the hospital here…. and they did what they could to stabilize me, and then sent me to the burn unit in Wichita…(60 miles away)  I don’t remember the ride, but I woke up when we arrived at the hospital.   Once the doctor had seen me, wrote the prescription(pain meds) and put the ointment on my face… we headed home again.

What a day….

‘Important note’ :

At the time, we had been studying… “The Power of the Blood of Jesus, and the Healing in His Blood” during our Wednesday evening Bible Study…..  That  study proved valuable to me:  It was my ‘sustaining power’, it was ‘life’ flowing into me physically and spirtually!

Once home, the real journey began.  I didn’t ‘just call’ everybody…. I had to have folks that were on the same page, that would stand and agree with me in prayer.   I had to sit up to sleep for a few days.  My left eye was completely shut on Thursday, but by Friday I could get it open and then my right eye was shut.  (On Saturday… they both were swollen shut)  I couldn’t go anywhere….  My skin itched so bad that I cried and cried.

My daughter had a friend that worked in a burn unit, and she told her some things that would help me. I had to have a certain diet…. (I only took advil, and never took the presciption)We prayed and asked God for a miracle….  (I didn’t want to be scarred for life)  We went back to see a cosmetic surgeon the next week.  He took a look, left the room and came back several times….  He said that there was no natural way for my skin to be at the point of healing.  But God said different.

I did however for the next few months have to be very careful when going out in the sun.  I had to wear ‘large brimmed’ hats and scarves…I had to use sunscreen and some other protection for my skin… I had to wear sunglasses for my eyes…  I did this daily, as I praised God for complete victory..

I never had to have the surgery or skin graft.  I never had to go back.  But God………… and I thank Him daily…. “NO” scars. I ‘know’ HIM personally……. HE is, Jehovah Raphe….. “The God that Healeth me”  

God Bless you,

Pastor Lovie
