Midnight Prayer.

Apart from momentary help, Prayer is the most humble thing that we can offer in the path of the storm!  “Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.” Psalms 107:28-29 NKJV

           ~In The Path~

Lord, for those who have been caught,
In the path of the storm;

I ask for Your angelic assistance,

To bring peace and calm.

Lord, for those who are homeless,
And left without hope;

I pray that You would give courage,

And help them to cope.

Lord, for those who feel helpless,
With no place to turn;

I pray that they find grace and mercy,

At the seat of Your Throne!

The Storm Is Over.

Day # 82: Of My 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Today, I am slamming the door on Stella and I am Counting It All Joy that the storm is over. Tomorrow I am springing into action by planning, preparing and executing the things that old man winter has left on the back burner. 

    
        🌹I’m Thanking God🌹

I’m thanking God for the flowers,

That are starting to bloom.

I am thanking Him for the ray of sunshine,

That is replacing the gloom.
I am thanking God that old man winter,

Is walking out the door;

And spring has finally spoken up,

And is saying, ‘NO MORE!’
I ‘m thanking God for the birds,

That are circling the skies.

But this sunshine girl has grown a few wings,

And she is ready to fly!

Day # 58: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

Today I am Counting It All Joy because when life circumstances leaves me feeling perplexed, …….I can look to Him!
             

                
               ~For He Is~

For He is the only Anchor that I know,

He is the light that leads me where to go.

He is the only stabilizing force I know,

When the stormy wind is blowing to and fro.

He is the only balm that calm my fears,

And the true comforter who dries my tears.

Day # 22: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

I can Count It All Joy because even on a dark night there was light on my path!

~There Will Always~

There will always be light,

On the path where He leads.

There will always be provision,

To meet every need.
There will always be peace,

In the midst of the storm;

There will always be strength,

And the grace to go on.
There will always be laughter,

Where once was a frown.

For the Holy Ghost will Pick me Up,

Whenever I feel down!

Day # 7: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

I can Count It All Joy because God has delivered my soul from the battle that was against me.

           

            ~Through The Storm~

God brought me through the raging storm,

When all hope to carry on was gone.

He took me from the battlefield,

Saying, ” Your redemption in Christ Jesus has been sealed.”
He placed me on a Solid Rock,

When the wind was beating on my back.

When my mind said that things would never change,

He said that my life He would rearrange.
He said that old things have passed away,

And that His Holy Spirit is here to stay.

He told me that I can do all things,

For the Mighty power He will bring.
He told me that I have overcome,

By the power of His Blessed Son.

He told me that His precious Blood,

Was poured out on me like a flood.

He told me that I need not fear,

For wherever I am, His Spirit is there.

The Gift Of Wisdom

Day # 11: Today, you can be thankful that when you ask for wisdom you will receive.

King Solomon, the wisest man that ever existed did not seek after riches or fame. He sought after Godly wisdom for everyday living. Today, that same wisdom is available to anyone who would seek for it with all of their heart. Wisdom is calling. It is saying, you don’t have to keep going around that same old mountain. Instead you can pray and ask God to give you the gift of wisdom that is better than gold and more precious than silver.#AskAndYouShallReceive!

~ Thank You~

Father, thank You for keeping me safe in your care,
And for bountiful blessings down through the years.
Father, thank You for the wisdom and knowledge that You give,
For courage and strength that helps me to live.
Father, thank You for giving me Jesus your Son,
Who has triumphed in every race that I’ve run.
Father, thank You for the strength that I’ve gained through the storm,
Thank you for the courage and love that You give to go on.
Father, thank You for comforting the pain in my heart,
And for giving me life and such a new start.
Father, thank You for lending an ear to my cry,
And for never a scold or a question of why.
Father Thank You for washing away all of my sins,
And for opening Your gates wide so that I can come in.

I Am Holding Steadfast:

Whenever we lose anything that was of great value to us it is normal to mourn or feel sad. But there comes a time when we have to make a DECISION to take off those old grave clothes and keep on pressing. For any extended period of grieving and mourning over ANYONE or ANYTHING will derail our destiny and become detrimental to our soul and physical wellbeing. 

After our NIGHT of weeping is over, we need to  have hope that our MORNING of joy is coming. “This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.” Hebrews 6:19 (NLT)

Joy is really a God-given gift that we have the ability to nurture from the inside out. Happiness on the other hand is something that we constantly have to chase after. Unfortunately, we can never fully catch it  because it is fleeting and ‘Always’ dependent on our surroundings and natural circumstances.

But while we may never be able to fully control all of the natural circumstances of life, we can keep hope alive as we hold steadfast to the Hand that will never change and the steady Rock that will never move!

        

       ~I Am Holding Steadfast~

I am holding steadfast to the hand that will never change.

And the steady Rock that will never move.

I am holding steadfast to the One,

Who spoke and still the storm,

And gave me the courage to carry on.


I am holding steadfast to the One,

Who has set me free;

And fashioned this special jewel,

That I am able to see!

Boahene© 3/20/15

His Love

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. ( John 3:16-17 (NLT)

When you accept the pathway of God’s love hate looses its power! For no matter what you have been through or are going through God is keeping the books and He will settle the score! So press on in His love.#AndDon’tYouQuit!

~His Love~

His love is far greater than the hateful things,
That you have experienced from day to day.
His love is far greater than the obstacles,
That has sought to block your path.
His love is far greater than the negativity,
And the unjust things that you can see.
His love is far greater than any violent storm,
Or ill words that were sent to do you harm.
His love is far greater than all of your weaknesses,
So let Him sanctify your soul and claim you as His!

Joyce A. Boahene© 2/2/15
