Change of Times: Prophetically Speaking

I see now, the Lord had been preparing my heart for the upcoming daylight savings time change we had March 8, 2020, with a song by Housefires – “I’ll Give Thanks”
Little did I know it was more than simply a rhythm for encouragement He was speaking Prophetically that we would be in a “Change of Times”
We know now, in part that is, how things indeed have changed with the world pandemic.
As a Faithful Father, He was imparting the lyrics of this song in my spirit that as they began to settle in my heart I would make it a song offering back to Him, singing over my household, to my husband, singing when doubt would attempt to creep in, I sing these words I’ll Give Thanks…He knows!!! Why do I worry, God’s not worried, He is more than enough, more than enough..He knows what I need…sing with me, will you?

In the morning You sing over me
And I receive Your mercy
Your faithfulness is clear to see
Is constant everyday
In the morning
In the morning You sing over me
And I receive Your mercy
Your faithfulness is clear to see
It’s like the sunrise
Constant everyday
Every breath I breathe an invitation
To believe You are creating
Something good
Though this season doesn’t tell my story
I know You’ll move mountains for me
You’re just that good
So I’ll give thanks to God
When I don’t have enough
‘Cause He’s more than enough
And He knows what I need
So I’ll give thanks to God
When I don’t have enough
‘Cause He’s more than enough
And He knows what I need
Oh, He knows what I need, yes
In the silence, I choose to believe
You’re working in the waiting
Though the future isn’t clear to me, no
I trust You anyway
Every breath I breathe, oh-oh-ohh
Every breath I breathe an invitation
To believe You are creating
Something good, oh-ohh
Though this season doesn’t tell my story
I know You’ll move mountains for me
You’re just that good
So I’ll give thanks to God
When I don’t have enough
‘Cause He’s more than enough
And He knows what I need
So I’ll give thanks to God
When I don’t have enough
‘Cause He’s more than enough
And He knows what I need
Oh, He knows what I need
He knows, He knows, He knows
So why do I worry?
Why do I worry?
Why do I worry?
God knows what I need
Come on
Why do I worry?
Why do I worry?
Why do I worry?
God knows what I need
He does
Why do I worry?

Why do I worry?
God knows what I need

Why do I worry?
God knows what I need
So I’ll give thanks to God
When I don’t have enough
‘Cause He’s more than enough
And He knows what I need
I’ll give thanks to God
When I don’t have enough
‘Cause He’s more than enough
And He knows what I need
Oh, You know what I need, yes, You do (Oh, You know)
You always know what I need
So I’ll give thanks to God (So I trust You, God)
When I don’t have enough (God, I trust You)
‘Cause He’s more than enough
And He knows what I need
He always knows what we need
He always knows what we need
Before we even ask, He knows what we need
So we can trust Him, we can trust Him
We can trust Him, come on
Oh, we can trust Him, mm
God’s not worried, so why do I worry?

Lord, Protect those who Protect Us

In Honor of Memorial Day

Today’s blog comes to us courtesy of  enews from AACC.  First, my thoughts to you. If you or a loved one has served in the arm forces – May I offer to each man and women one huge and sincere Thank You along with a holy hug for your service and honor to our country. While I may never know the extent of your sacrifice I do desire to honor you. Below are a few book resources with a brief excerpt written by men who have either dealt or have had experience with the workings of combat stress and trauma. I hope you find these resources a benefit to both you and your family. Certainly share with those in need or who may be currently serving. 

At this time, more than ever, let us humble ourselves before Almighty God and pray for our country…

‘Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good, but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. Amen!’
Billy Graham

 
Combat Stress & Trauma
by Major General, U.S. Army (Retired) Bob Dees

The reality of war is that everyone gets wounded. Some wounds heal rapidly, but some last for a lifetime. Some wounds can be seen. Some wounds are invisible: inside the heart, soul, and spirit of the warrior. These unseen wounds (ranging from mild reintegration issues to severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)) are often the most difficult to heal – they must truly heal from the inside out.”

Our Warriors Today and “Combat Trauma”
by Raymond Kahle

In the Armed Forces the average age of today’s young Americans serving in uniform is 20 and a half years of age; making them about ten months older than their grandfather who would have served in my war. They are high school graduates; are all volunteers; they are brighter and better educated and trained to lead than any soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen, or marines of any other country in history.

“Today’s warrior can use his body like a weapon and his weapon as a part of his body, and he can take a life or save one because he is so remarkably trained. The images of today’s warriors going to inner Faith Services and/or Bible studies are not staged – they’re all real and initiated by these young warriors. When they huddle up in prayer circles before deploying on a mission they’re not preparing to go to play football, they’re going into mortal combat and they know that some of them are liable not to come back – and they do it because they have faith.”
