Be Merciful to me, Lord, for I am faint:
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
My soul is in anguish.
Turn, O Lord, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.
Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Blessed is he who has regard for the weak;
the Lord delivers him in times of trouble.
The Lord will protect him and preserve his life;
he will bless him in the land
and not surrender him to the desire of his foes.
The Lord will sustain him on his sickbed
and restore him from his bed of illness.
I said "Oh Lord, have mercy on me;
heal me, for I have sinned against you."
The tongue of the wise brings healing.
truthful lips endure forever.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;
then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with wine. Proverbs 3:5-10
A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones. He who listens to a life-giving rebuk will be at home among the wise.
Let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who ve your name may rejoice in you.
For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
The Lord has heard my weeping.
The Lord has heard my cry for mercy;
the Lord accepts my prayer.
Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
for you are good, O Lord.
Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
O Lord, be my help.
You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.
In you my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. I cry out to God Most High,
to God, who fullfills his purpose for me.
Father you promised that there would be faith and strength and hope to meet life's problems. Father, give that strength to those whose anxieties have buried their dreams, whose illnesses have hospitalized their hopes, whose burdens are bigger than their shoulders. Please guide our lives today, guide us in our treatment decisions, give us wisdom on how to handle our challenges, help us with the direction you want us to go and show us how to rely on you. We ask for healing, guidance, wisdom from above & we praise you and thank you for our lives. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen. Reinhold Neibuhr
I can do all things through him who gives me strength.
Why are you so downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
God is the Father who is full of mercy and all comfort. He comforts us every time we have trouble, so when others have trouble, we can comfort them with the same comfort God gives us. We share in the many sufferings of Christ. In the same way, much comfort comes to us through Christ.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5
Even if I walk through a very dark valley, I will not be afraid, because you are with me. Your rod and your walking stick comfort me.
Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Accept my teachings and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit, and you will find rest for your lives. The teaching I ask you to accept is easy; the load I give you is light.
The Lord hears good people when they cry out to him, and he saves them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, and he save those whose spirits have been crushed.

Holy Ghost, with light divine, Shine upon this heart of mine; Chase the shades of night away, Turn my darkness into day. Holy Ghost, with power divine, cleanse this guilty heart of mine; Long hath sin without control held dominion over my soul. Holy Ghost, with joy divine. Cheer this saddened heart of mine; Bid my many woes depart, Heal my wounded, bleeding heart. Holy Spirit, all divine, Dwell within this heart of mine; Cast down every idol throne, Reign supreme and reign alone. Andrew Reed (1787-1862)
The hearts of the people cry out to the Lord. . . . Let your tears flow like a river day and night; . . . pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord
"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
1 Peter 5:7
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
A Strong Woman:
A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape...but a Woman of strength kneels in prayer to keep her Soul in shape....
A strong woman isn't afraid of anything ...but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear....
A strong woman won't let anyone get the best of her...but a woman of strength gives the best of her to everyone.
A strong woman walks sure footedly ...but a woman of strength knows God will catch her when she falls....
A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face, but a woman of strength wears grace....
A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey, but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.
....The shortest distance between a problem and a solution can be the distance between your knees and the floor....... in both praise and worship to the Lord God.~Author Unknown

I know everything about you (Psalm 139:1). I know when you sit down and when you rise up (Psalm 139:2). I am familiar with all your ways (Psalm 139:3). I even know how many hairs you have on your head (Matthew 10:29-31). For you were made in my image (Genesis 1:27). In me you live, move, and exist. You are my child (Acts 17:28). I knew all about all you even before you were created (Jeremiah 1:4-5). I chose you when I planned creation (Ephesians 1:11-12). You were not a mistake, for every day of your life is recorded in My book (Psalm 139:15-16). I determined the exact time of your birth, and where you would live (Acts 17:26). You are a wonderful and marvelous creation (Psalm 139:14). I made all the delicate and inner parts of your body (Psalm 139:13) and brought you forth on the day you were born (Psalm 71:6). I am not far away or angry, but am a total expression of love (1 John 4:16), and it is My desire to pour my love on you simply because you are my child and I am your Heavenly Father (1 John 3:1). Every good gift you receive comes from my hand (James 1:17). I am your provider and I meet all your needs (Matthew 6:31-33). My plan for your future has always been filled with hope (Jeremiah 29:11), because I love you with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3). My thoughts about you outnumber the grains of sand on the seashore (Psalm 139:17-18). I rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17). I will never stop doing good to you (Jeremiah 32:40), for you are my treasured possession (Exodus 19:5) and I want to show you great and awesome things (Jeremiah 33:3). If you go after me with all your heart, you will find me (Deuteronomy 4:29). Get excited about me and I will give you your heart's desires (Psalm 37:4), for it is I who gave you those desires (Philippians 2:23). I am able to do more for you than you could ever imagine (Ephesians 3:20). I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). When you are hurting, I am close to you (Psalm 34:18). As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart (Isaiah 40:11). One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes and take away all the pain you have ever suffered here on this earth (Revelation 21:3-4). I am your father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus (John 17:23), for in Jesus, My love for you is revealed (John 17:26). My son Jesus is the exact representation of Me (Hebrews 1:3). My Son came to show you that I am for you, not against you (Romans 8:31), and to tell you that I am not counting your sins (2 Corinthians 5:18-19). My Son died so that you and I could have a relationship (2 Corinthians 2:18-19). His death was the ultimate expression of My love for you (1 John 4:10). I gave up everything that I love that I might gain your love (Romans 8:31-32). If you receive the gift of My Son, Jesus, you receive Me (1 John 2:23), and nothing will separate you from My love ever again (Romans 8:38-39). I have always been and always will be your Father (Ephesians 3:14-15).
Love, Your Dad,
As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for you. O God. My soul thirst for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night. While they continually say to me, Where is your God?
Psalm 42 1-3

A GREAT START TO A DAY!
idea from Beth Moore.
For those who cannot get up in the morning, you can always go back to bed afterwards.
Take a chair & your bible or print this page out if you do not have one. Position yourself toward the East.
Lift up the day's needs, tell God your worries, your fears, your hopes & all about your physical & emotional pain. Also look around you and above at what he has created. Ask him to guide your day & your path in life. Do this as the light begins to dawn and the sun rises. Meditate on the truth from God's Word.
As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease.
Because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning:
great is your faithfulness.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may remain for a night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
