Still Waiting by Tammy Glover
I have given them everything. I’ve given them a magnificent place to live, yet they abuse it. I’ve given them plenty of food and water, yet its never enough. I’ve given them my Word, yet they say its fiction. I’ve given them my precious son to bring them salvation, yet they say he never existed. Even some that know better, still don’t truly believe. I’ve given them my Holy Spirit to guide them, yet they’re still lost, wandering the desert. I give them comfort, yet they are still broken-hearted. I send them my angels to watch over them, yet they still walk in fear. I give them healing, yet they still refuse to receive it.
I want to give them even more blessings, if they would just take one step towards me. There is nothing I can’t do or give them. They are my children and I will never stop loving them. Even if they don’t recognize me, I will still wait for them with open arms. All I ever wanted in return was their love and faithfulness. I have a place prepared for those who seek me. I’ll come for them soon.
Will you be ready?
Believe by Tammy Glover
I am a prisoner of faith, forever tethered to hope. I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way. When the waters are calm, believing is easy. The challenge begins when the storm comes. I don’t always feel like I have the strength to keep holding on. Its hard to think straight when my heart is broken. Its hard to see when I’m afraid. Its hard to hear when I’m angry. I have to let these things go, so that I can put both hands firmly on my chain and hold on to God’s promises. My survival depends on it. How else will my heart get mended? How else will I get rescued? How else will I get healed? Faith is what activates all of these things. I refuse to stop believing!
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Hebrews 11:6
Do You Really Know Me?
By Tammy Glover
I am the Creator of heaven and earth. I am your father and I created you in my image. I am love. I am merciful. I give my blessings generously. I am your protector. I am righteous. My hand is always open to lift you up. I always listen. I am patient and compassionate. I only have good intentions. I will never lead you astray. I never lie but I open your eyes to the truth. I am just. I care for you. I am the light and the only way to salvation. I am God Almighty. Do you really know me?
If you really knew me, you would not get offended when someone asks for your help. You would make time to listen and instead of offering judgment, you would offer encouragement. You would not seek things that only benefit yourself. You would pray for each other. You would not harm each other physically, verbally or emotionally. You would be slow to anger and quick to forgive. Simply put, you would love each other, for this is what I have commanded. I have given you many examples to teach you how to love each other. Now, think carefully when I ask you again, do you really know me?
“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.” Romans 13:8
Someone to Lean On
by Tammy Glover
I woke up about three o’clock in the morning. It felt like there was a weight pressing against my chest. It was hard to breathe and I started to panic. My mind raced with worries but not about my health. It was the worries of the day, week and future that assaulted my mind. I thought about things I regretted, people who hurt me and people who I may have hurt. Once those negative thoughts started, they just wouldn’t stop. I sat up in bed and cried.
I hate crying. I hate feeling out of control. I wanted to talk to someone but the late hour prevented me from even looking at the phone. Besides, what would I say, “I’m freaking out and I don’t know why?” How could anyone possibly help me? How could they know the right words to say?
As the tears and worries continued to flow, I heard a voice whisper in my ear, “lean on me.”
That was all I needed to be reminded that I was not alone. I always have access to a never-ending supply of love. Sometimes when we are in the midst of pain or fear, we forget this fact. The Lord is always with us. He understands what we are going through, even when we don’t know how to put it into words. He can bring calm to chaos. He will give us wisdom that no one else can even conceive. He comforts us. He loves us, immensely and He is always available for His children. In your dark hours, lean on the Lord. He will never let you down.
“He who watches over you will not slumber.” Psalm 121:3
