A little encouragement!

Maybe you need a little encouragement today. Well, I have something so special to share! I spent January-April in a wonderful, wonderful Bible Study... Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed: A Study of David. The video sessions are recordings of three gifted women at a 2007 Deeper Still conference. You might be familiar with Beth Moore and Kay Arthur. Well, Priscilla Shirer also joined them and shared what follows as part of her message. I get to do this study a second time with our summer Bible study and can't wait! And I was so glad to be able to get my hands on this little speech so I could share it. {If you have a link to it on video, I'd love to get it!} Enjoy!

These are Priscilla Shirer's words:

Get a good look at God, remembering who He is. You belong to HIM!

He is the first and the last. . . the beginning and the end.
He's the keeper of creation and the Creator of all.
He's the architect of the universe and the manager of all times.
He always was, always is, and always will be.
Unmoved, unchanged, undefeated and never undone.
He was bruised, but brought healing.
He was pierced but eased pain.
He was persecuted but brought freedom.
He was dead, and brings life.
He is risen to bring power
And He reigns to bring peace.
The world can't understand Him.
Armies can't defeat Him.
Schools can't explain and leaders. . . they can't ignore Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him.
Nero couldn't crush Him.
The New Age can not replace Him
And Oprah can not explain Him away. . . she can't . . . she can't do it!
You remind yourself -- He is Life, He is longevity & He is the Lord.
He is goodness & kindness & faithfulness and He is God.
He is holy & righteous & powerful & pure.
His ways are right. His Word eternal. His will unchanging and
His mind is on us.
He's our Savior, our guide, our peace, our joy, our comfort, our Lord.
And He rules our lives.
I serve Him because His bond is love, His yoke is easy, His burden is light
And His goal for us is abundant life.
I follow Him because He is the Wisdom of the wise, the Power of the powerful,
The Ancient of Days, the Ruler of rulers, the Leader of all leaders.
His goal is a relationship with me.
He'll never leave you, never forsake you, never mislead you, never forget you,
Never overlook you, and never cancel your appointment in His appointment book. . .
When you fall, He'll lift you up.
When you fail, He'll forgive you.
When you're weak, He's strong.
When you're lost, He's your way.
When you're afraid, He's your courage.
When you stumble, He will steady you.
When you're hurt, He's going to heal you.
When you're broken, He will mend you.
When you're blind, He will lead you.
When you're hungry, He will feed you.
When you face trials, He is with you.
When I face persecution, He shields me.
When I face problems, He will comfort me.
When I face loss, He will provide for me.
When we face death, He will carry us all home to meet Him.
He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time and in every way.
He is your GOD
And THAT , Sisters is who YOU belong to!!
