"Do you believe..."

Do you believe God is who he says he is?
- That this present suffering is not worthy to be compared with the things that God has prepared for those who love Him!!
- That all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose!!
- That He shall have his angels encamp about me!!
- That He hears the cries of the righteous!!
- That He is a strong tower in the face of my enemies!!
- That He will never leave me or forsake me!!
- That He sets a table for me in the presence of my enemies!!
- That every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of Lights!!
- That in my weakness, He shows me His strength!!
- That He is all I will ever need!!
He is the author and finisher of my faith, and as long as I am willing to remain pliable clay in His hands, He will mold me into the image of His dear son, Yeshua Ha Mashiach! That is who I want to be like!!! Not a platitude of the lips, but an attitude of the heart!!
Do you believe God is who he says he is?

- This was in my church's bulletin enjoy! :O)

On Thursday June 11, I was driving my Aunt Joan home when a person backed out of their driveway and struck me on my passenger side. (see photo) as I was driving up the road, I saw in the intersection ahead of me 4 kids were walking across. My Aunt shouted he’s not stopping! I turned my head to the right and that’s when I was hit. The driver hit me pretty hard. Abba protected my Aunt. My work requires the employees to carry a disposable camera in the car and a accident report sheet. I grabbed the camera and got out of the truck. I came around to the back of my truck and the boyfriend of the driver got in my face and started to yell and scream at me. I stayed calm but I couldn’t assess the scene. He was blaming me for the crash and saying I was speeding and I could have killed his kid and made other threats. My aunt believes he was the one driving but the lady says she was and he doesn’t have a license. He also stated to the cop he was inside the house when the crash occurred. I am surprised I stayed calm. Abba must have taken over and gave me peace. After all the crap they were saying to me and blaming me for the crash, I just keep quiet and spoke very little. My Aunt called my Uncle and he called their son, a retired police detective and who is my cousin, he came and waited with me until the police arrived. I have a white 2003 GMC Sonoma. The person who hit me has a Chevy Avalanche. They came at me not perpendicular but at an angle and the only damage to their truck was passenger side tail light broken and the bumper end a little bent. My insurance company is Nationwide. My truck to them is only worth 4,000. They wanted to total it but the repair place they had me take it to did a estimate of 3,800. I’m glad it wasn’t totaled. Going back into debt, especially in this economy, is not good. I need to trust Abba and let him take care of this. Abba allows things to happen for a reason. I don’t know why Abba allowed this but I know it was his mercy for me and my aunt to walk away from it. Psalm 31:7-8 “I will be glad and rejoice in your mercy, for you have considered my trouble; you have known my soul in adversities, and have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; you have set my feet in a wide place.”

"Ice cream, ice cream - we all scream for ice cream"

On the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th Tuesday of every month are dill nights for WAFD and last night's drill was at the MTB tower in Colonie. We took two pumpers and I was on 459. Station 2 nicknamed the pumper "Rudolph" red nose fire truck. See the pic you'll know why. Anyway, the drill was on car fires. We did 4 evolutions and the last one was a bus. Really cool. On the ride back, pumper 454 was in front and all of a sudden it pulled into EMS 3. We were all puzzled and then someone said "they're getting ice cream!" There was an ice cream shop next door. Then we all said "Hey! We want ice cream!" The driver was more than happy pull the pumper around for ice cream. A nice treat at the end of a hot drill. Abba will do that. He loves us so much. He has done things like that for me when I had a real ruff day or whatever. Just out of the blue he will do something totally unexpected and turn things around for good in a second just because he loves us. James 1:17 says "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning." Todah Abba!

"A Father's Love Letter"

I saw this video on TBN about 5 years ago. Abba had me see this just at the right time. I needed to hear how much he cares for me again. There are going to be low times in your walk with Abba. It is inevitable but Abba cares for us and he wants us to get in his word and pray to know him more intimately. Seek him with all of your heart - he is waiting for you.
