Real-life God Gold

God Gold of the Day

“Many people say, “Who will show us better times?” Let your face smile on us, Lord. You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭4:6-8‬ ‭

Saw this awesome picture God created when I was on the road today. His face literally shining on us! Stinkin crazy!

Think on this today:

The One who makes that picture happen, is the One who loves us, cares for us, fights for us, and fulfills our every need.

I could write all day about how awesome, capable and powerful God is but just think on that and live in the peace, comfort and confidence that comes in knowing God, having full access to God, and having this same God who created that, love you!

Shortest Gold ever because what else can be said about Him that He isn’t already showing us!?!?!!!

I love you but God loves you way more!!! Happy Friyay everyone!

Mid-Week Mining: “Jesus Spotting”

God Gold of the Day

Amidst the latest news reports filled with tragedy and troubles coming at the hand of the “invisible enemy,” the coronavirus, this picture was caught right in the middle of one of the roughest areas of this virus. The country of Italy, as many know it as the home place of some of our favorite foods, like that of lasagna, spaghetti, and pizza! Italy has been one of the countries taking the biggest hit from this extremely harmful virus thus far. Many have lost their lives, many families have lost the lives of loved ones, and many have been under weeks long of quarantine in their homes. Despite going through all these tough times, one morning a very well-known figure made His presence felt. This figure is none other than Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Savior of all!! Yes sir!!!! THAT JESUS!!!!

I’m not one to be skeptical so when I saw this, I didn’t question that this is really a picture that was taken in Italy of all places!!! How truly AMAZING is this that Jesus would show up in such an unbelievable and awesome way such as this!!! This isn’t just a fluke or a coincidence as some might claim, this is Jesus and this is the way He works in our lives on the daily! It may not be in grand and huge pictures of Him drawn in the sunrise as this is here but Jesus is just as real and just as present in our daily lives working at all times!!!! Even in the valley’s of our struggles and the toughest times we’ve ever faced, Jesus remains just as present as ever!!!! He is there for us, no matter what, loving us and working for our good at ALL TIMES!!!! Hope this is a BIG encouragement for you today and hope your mind is blown as much as mine is!!! WOW JESUS!!!! He never disappoints!!!

Meditation Monday: “Grab onto His Word and ask ?’s”

God Gold of the day

‘It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” ‘

Deuteronomy 31:8

Wanted to share this verse with you today because it was such a big encouragement to me, I pray it will be just as much or even more so encouraging to you!!! At first, I was going to send this verse because it’s one of those “encouraging verses” we see all over God’s Word and it fit because of the troubled times we are surrounded by but I felt convicted just sending this without really digging into it myself. What I found, and I hope with the help of these questions I asked myself. you will find that it’s more than just an “encouraging verse!” It’s TRUTH, and it’s REAL!!!!

So easily, I’ve found myself just reading verses and glancing over them saying, “oh yeah that’s good stuff!” But then I just go about my day and that verse has no effect on me in the way I live or handle situations that come my way. What I realized is this; God’s Word is more than just words on a page that are meant to make us feel good temporarily. God’s Word is meant to be grabbed onto and not just glanced over but looked into deeply. And when I say “grab onto” His Word I mean grabbing tightly and squeezing it for all the Gold that He has in store. I’ve noticed in my own quiet time this week how easily and lazily I don’t do this when handling His Word but when I have dug deeper, God’s Word sticks to me throughout my day. It molds and shapes every action I take and decision I make, it reminds me of who He is and how He feels/acts towards me constantly when I need it the most. I wanted to pose a few questions for you here to use with this verse or whatever verse you’re reading that I pray will help you grab onto God’s Word and dig deeper like never before!!! I pray that this helps you in some way, as I’ve already seen the few times I’ve tried this method and the life-giving/changing results that His Word has, I want nothing more than for you to experience His Word at work in this way too in your own lives!

Why is this encouraging to me?

Who does God show that He is here? How does those things or attributes play into my life?

What is God saying He will and can do in my life?

What situations that I have faced or face on a daily basis that having this understanding of who God is and how He works in my life, what situations would this truth play a role in? How would this truth about God move me or help me?

Build a list of questions, whatever comes to mind, these are just a few questions of many that could be asked. What’s cool about asking questions when it comes to God’s Word is that the answers you find will without a doubt change your life as you grow to know God more deeply.

What an Awesome Opportunity We Have Before Us
