“The steadfast love of God never ceases; His mercies never come to an end.
They are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness.” Lam. 3:22, 23

Life can often remind us of a roller coaster. Sometimes we are up. Sometimes we are down.... but always we are moving on… toward a destination where we will finally make our eternal home.

Strained family relationships and financial problems have us feeling wounded and searching for answers.

Migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, cancer, depression, and a multitude of other health issues can leave us feeling weak and winded, and wondering what to do next.

When we turn our hearts and minds to our Lord Who created this world and “knit” these bodies together for answers… and seek Him for the strength and wisdom to walk through another day… and for the endurance to continue to meet the responsibilities in life that are our own, we will receive everything we need from Him.

We discover that He is and has been walking beside us every step of the way. When we have gone as far as we can go, He picks us up and carries us… through the pitfalls and struggles of life until our strength is regained. Then He sets us back on our feet, brushes us off, and continues on with us as we walk the path of life.

God our Father loves us with an unfailing love.
He is an ever present refuge in our time of need.

Praise His name.

Daily Rules from God

1. Wake Up!! Decide to have a good day.

"Today is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalms 118:24

2. Dress Up!! The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

"The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance; but the Lord looks at the heart." I Samuel 16:7

3. Shut Up!! Say nice things and learn to listen. Stop complaining! God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.

"He who guards his lips guards his soul." Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!... For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything..

"Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good..." Galatians 6:9-10

5. Look Up!!... To the Lord. "

I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me." Phillippians 4:13

6. Reach Up!!... For something higher.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, And He will direct your path." Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up!!... Your Prayers.

"Do not worry about anything; instead PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING." Philippians 4:6

And remember: God answers Knee-Mail.
