Let Me Love You More

'Let Me Love You More' by Misty Edwards

Psalm 25:6-8 NIV
Remember, LORD, your great mercy and love,
   for they are from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth
   and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
   for you, LORD, are good.
 Good and upright is the LORD;
   therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.

Psalm 119:46-48 NIV
I will speak of your statutes before kings
   and will not be put to shame,
for I delight in your commands
   because I love them.
I reach out for your commands, which I love,
   that I may meditate on your decrees.

Prayer Chain for Summer

Anna over at Bella Vita is hosting a link up prayer chain for Summer at Summer's Story

As most of you know I have been supporting Summer in prayer and this blog, along with Lisa, Emily and Milly, was started, with them in mind, by the urging of God.

Summer has been going through some very rough days as she has been coming down off of the prednisone and now the doctor's see the culprit disease is DM in a full out flare. There has been a decision made as to what drug Summer will be taking next. Please pray this drug works and sends DM into remission. Also pray that there are no adverse side affects.

Summer is such a sweet lady who loves God and her family. It is so hard to watch someone suffer but Summer does it with an upbeat attitude never feeling sorry for herself but always meeting the day with a smile on her face.

You can support Summer by purchasing a Team Summer t-shirt by clicking here. All proceeds go to JHU, research for DM.

Praying and praying for you Summer! DM take a hike!

Ezra 8:23 NIV

So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer.

1 Timothy 2:1-3 NIV

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior.

Luke 14:24-27 NIV

Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple."

The above is a very hard word to take in and digest. What does it mean to hate father, mother, wife, children, brothers, sisters and your own life? I believe it has to do with sanctification and the first commandment; "love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." Matthew 22:37 NIV

Sanctification defines sanctification as:
1. to make holy; set apart as sacred; consecrate.
2. to purify or free from sin: Sanctify your hearts.
3. to impart religious sanction to; render legitimate or binding: to sanctify a vow

Sanctification is Jesus in me not something He puts into me but the perfections of Jesus Christ are given to me, not slowly but instantly when in faith we believe that Jesus gives us holiness or sanctification. It is the point where nothing is more important than Jesus Christ Himself and where we give all of us over to Him and allow Him to let His perfection shine in us. It is when we say hate, and Jesus relates hate to murder so, in essence, we are murdering our number one ties to our father, mother, husband, wife, children and self. Where nothing but Jesus Christ is number one in our lives and this is the first commandment 

Matthew 22:37 NIV

"love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." 
Then, through the gift of Jesus in us, we will be equally yoked with Jesus walking along beside Him bearing our cross in life.

John 14:15-21 NIV

If you love me, keep my commands.  And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

The impartation of the Holy qualities of Jesus Christ is His love, patience, holiness, faith and purity that is obvious in every sanctified soul. This is not taking from Jesus His power, but drawing from His power that is manifested in Him that He makes apparent in us. This is not an imitation of Jesus but Jesus in perfection in us. This is very wonderful news, knowing that the Holy Spirit living in us manifests in us the power of Jesus Christ if we keep His commands which Jesus tells us in

Matthew 22:37-39 NIV

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ "

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 NIV

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. 

Come to Jesus just as you are with all of your baggage and stuff. Believe He is God's Son given up for you and He will take you as is and change you into the person He created you to be. The Holy Spirit will come in and live in your heart and give you the qualities of Jesus.

Keegan and Lisa

Karing for KeeganUPDATE:
Keegan has lost the movement in his legs and lower extremities.  He is receiving large doses of prednisone to reduce swelling in hopes of his legs being able to move again. Continue to pray that this cancer is gone. Please pray for Beth as she is very stressed out and worried. 

Beth from Karing for Keegan has found out the cancer in Keegan has grown and the 3f8 trial study drug cannot be used on him and surgery is out of the option. Please hold this family in your prayers and ask God to intervene for a miracle.

This sweet family has been through so much, please head over to her blog and let her know you will be praying for Keegan. I just cannot imagine what feeling are going through her right now.

Please also remember to pray for Lisa. She is going to have her surgery this Friday July 29th. She sent me an email and I told her I would be praying. I am heading into a fast this week, if you feel led please join me in intercessing for our sweet sister Lisa and our beautiful baby brother Keegan.

James 5:14-16 NIV

Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. 

Dear Holy God,
I stand before You a sinner who has been covered in the Blood of Your Son Jesus Christ. I come before You on bended knees and preparing to lie face down before You and Your Holy Throne to request Your mercy on Keegan, Lisa, Summer and all the other people You have given me to pray for. Father, You alone know the out come for Keegan. You alone can heal this precious child. You alone can heal my sisters and Your daughters Lisa and Summer. You alone can heal everyone, but I know You have bigger plans than I can see. You have a better work ahead and laid out so I beseech You, line me up with Your good and perfect will. Show me how to pray for the sick. Father, a miracle is needed and only You can provide this. In the name of Jesus Christ, I ask You LORD, please have mercy and heal them.
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, my LORD I pray. Amen and amen.

How Great is our God

Beautiful music video with Bible verses.

Deuteronomy 10:16-18 NIV

Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer.  For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.  He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing.

Train Ride Through Life

Yesterday was a very interesting day for me. My family and I woke early so we could make a 2 1/2 hr drive north to catch a train. Not just any train but a ‘children’s wish foundation’ train ride. This is something my husband has wanted to do his whole life but never had the opportunity to do so until yesterday. With the money going towards such a good cause how could we refuse?
We had invited a couple that we knew and them and their two boys met up at the train station for a fascinating ride. Now I, being a pretty active person, was fussing inside wondering how I was going to survive hours and hours of sitting down on a train and then bus being bored out of my mind. God, through, had other plans! 
The couple we traveled with are friends that I haven't had much contact with for over 3 years and before that it was very sporadic, chit chat during the hour our kids did Taekwondo together. Darling, name changed, and I started talking and as it turned out we talked from the moment we sat down on the train til the moment we got off the bus back at our starting destination. 
Darling is not a Christian but a non practicing Jew by birth. She is sweet, vivacious and eager to learn new things and would give the shirt off of her back if she saw that you were cold and in need. I knew from other friends that Darling was attending a woman's Bible study so I thought I would ask her how it was going. That was a question that led into witnessing about Jesus and the end times that we are now living in. I thought it was pretty neat how God set this whole thing up on a moving train. Made me think about how we move through life twisting and turning going through tunnels and climbing mountains. Riding along either letting life and opportunities pass us or observe, learn and grow. 
As I started witnessing to Darling about Jesus being the Messiah and telling her about all the weird things happening in this world, I could see a spark develop and grow right before my very eyes. The opening up of a Jewish gem, a deep knowing inside of her that what I was telling her was truth. I watched her spirit come alive and a deep thirst for Jesus and the Truth, grow. I am amazed at how God works, you see I didn't want to go on this train ride and almost missed it but because of my son's persistence in me coming along, I went. If I had stayed home Darling and I wouldn't have had this talk. We parted ways with her wanting to find a Bible study about Biblical prophecy and finding her true roots in Jesus Christ.
Praise God! How He works astounds me time and time again. If we are just willing to be free and talk openly and honestly about Jesus, we will be surprised to see how the Holy Spirit works. I am praying for Darling and her husband Gazelle. You see Gazelle is not a believer but a hard shell man who I noticed was listening in on our conversation with eager ears. I can see his shell cracking and I know the Holy Spirit is moving in.
Step out and speak freely about Jesus and embrace the opportunities that are set before you even if they seem dull and boring I guarantee you will not be disappointed that you did.
Timothy 6 11:16 NIV
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.

John 17; Jesus' Prayer

John 17
1 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
Jesus Prays for His Disciples
    6 “I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8 For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.
   13 “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
Jesus Prays for All Believers
    20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
   24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
   25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

My mind is blank! I have nothing to say so I figure God has nothing for me right now. That's fine with me. :) Praying for all of my followers and some that are not following. 

Thank you again for praying for Shinzou Takara, he is back to normal!! Praise God!!

Thank You & Update

I want to thank all of you for praying for Shinzou Takara. He has food poisoning and will be at the vets for at least one or two more days receiving IV antibiotics and fluids. Hope is that his bowels have not been damaged but he is a very strong dog and our God is so good, I trust Him.

1 Chronicles 29:12-13 NIV

Wealth and honor come from you;
   you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
   to exalt and give strength to all.
Now, our God, we give you thanks,
   and praise your glorious name.

Pray for Shinzou Takara

I have a different request today, prayer for my dog Shinzou Takara. Yesterday he was listless and by last night he was hot, not eating or drinking. Since he has an ongoing issue with kidney infection, we gave him some antibiotics and waited to see how he was doing this morning. This morning he is the same as last night so my hubby brought him into the vet. I have a funny suspicion that he has poisoning either from some bad meat he ate or the neighbours poison set out for coyotes. He is a loved family member and it is very sad to see him suffering so much.
There is a story behind his name, Shinzou Takara which means God's gift, treasure. It is a Japanese name given to him because he is a Japanese Akita. My husband really wanted an Akita for as long as we have been married, since he had one as a kid, but we always got our dogs from the humane society as I couldn't see buying a dog when there are so many without homes. Seven years ago my husband said to me there were Akita pups for sale and he wanted to pick one up. Usually you have to be on a list for over a year to get one of these pups, so our family got together and prayed asking God if it was His will for us to get a pup then  please let everything work out. A phone call was made and the breeder told us that there were two pups from the litter for sale as the people wanting these pups just back out. We made the 3 hr drive out to the farm saw Shinzou and fell in love. We brought him home and again prayed asking God for a name and came up with Shinzou Takara and this name over the years has lengthen to Shinzou Takara rawhide pee a paw pawsy papa pup.

Psalm 36:5-7 NIV
Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, 
your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, 
your justice like the great deep. 
You, LORD, preserve both people and animals.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! 
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. 

Proverbs 12:10 NIV
The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
 but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel. 

Thank you!!

What Time Is It?

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NIV
There is a time for everything,  
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,  
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
The older my children get the more I have to back off. I am in a season of refraining from embracing. This is a lot harder than I ever imagined, but I know that with God all things are possible. What season are you in?

Mark 10:27 NIV
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

I am so proud to be Canadian. Thank you Father for creating Canada, the land north and free! Thank You for providing so many natural resources! How well provided we are.

Steven Harper is Canada's president and I am so proud of him for standing up for Israel. Way to go! For those of you who don't know much about Canada here is a Wikipedia site this should give you a good idea about your neighbour to the north. :)

Genesis 27:28-29 NIV
May God give you heaven’s dew  
 and earth’s richness—
   an abundance of grain and new wine.
May nations serve you
   and peoples bow down to you.
Be lord over your brothers,
   and may the sons of your mother bow down to you.
May those who curse you be cursed
   and those who bless you be blessed.”

Deuteronomy 28:11-13 NIV

The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.
The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.

Let's always remember to pray for our nation and the nation of Israel, for God has promised those who bless my people I will bless.

Romans 10:1 NIV

Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved.
