This little chorus has been stuck in my brain for several days now so I thought I'd share it with you.  I am blessed with many people in my life that I can count on but the message in these words remind me that my faithful Friend, Jesus, is the One I can count on above all others. 
I just keep trusting my Lord
as I walk a long
I just keep trusting my Lord
and He gives a song


Though the storm clouds darken the sky
o'er the heav'nly trail


I just keep trusting my Lord,
He will never fail

He's a faithful friend,
such a faithful friend

I can count on Him
 to the very end

Though the storm clouds darken the sky
o'er the heav'nly trail
I just keep trusting my Lord, He will never fail

Are you experiencing storm clouds in your life?
Are you or someone close to you hurting right now?
Could you just use a hug?
Remember, if you know the Lord as Savior,
you have a faithful Friend in Jesus. 

PSALM 143:8
My prayer today is that you will experience
 the love of  your faithful Friend, Jesus, in your heart ...
Blessings,  Pamelyn

Creation Color

I thought I'd share some pins from my Pinterest board titled COLORS
Yes, I admit, I'm a Pinterest-holic, and here's three reasons why...

These colorful images inspire me to think of the beautiful seasonal colors in the creative work of God.   Even though there's not a lot of change in the seasons here in the Deep South, God blesses me with beauty all year 'round in my little corner of the world.  

Consider ...

the soft pink, lavender and yellow hues of spring;


a brilliant blue sky, bright sunny yellow-orange and
fresh green grass of summer;


the rich leafy brown, red, orange and purple of autumn;


the sparkling white snow and frost of winter.


 ... and I think you'll agree,
God wants us to enjoy His
divine color palette!


The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof;
the world, and they that dwell therein.  Psalm 24:1

Every time I see an empty and uncared for house I can't help wondering what sad circumstances have led to this beautiful place being abandoned?   What could have led the previous owners to forsake their home? 

The word forsake usually causes one to think of terrible times in their life when they felt abandoned, rejected and alone. 
The definition of forsake is 1. to quit or leave entirely; abandon; desert: 2. to give up or renounce (a habit, way of life, etc.).

Hebrews 13:5 & 6, "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me." (KJV)

The Bible tells us that although
God's people may have forsaken Him,
He promises to never, no not ever
forsake, quit, leave, abandon, desert, 
give up or renounce His children. 
If you are a child of God you can rely on this promise because... of His relationship to us.  Earthly family relationships may become broken but our Heavenly Father will never dis-own us.

If you are a child of God you can rely on this promise because... the Lord began a work in us at the moment of salvation and His honor binds Him never to forsake us.   It will never be said that the Lord left any work of His unfinished,  He will accomplish what He started.

If you are a child of God you can rely on this promise because... the past is proof that He will not forsake His own.  Any past trial that a child of God has experienced testifies of the future care our Heavenly Father bestows upon us.  Not one of His saints has perished into eternity without His hand upon them.

If you are a child of God you can rely on this promise because... even before we accepted the free gift of salvation, God loved us.   Once we are saved we can never be separated from our Savior.  It is not something that we do that keeps us secure, rather it is the unmerited love of our Savior that gives us eternal hope.

Romans 8:38 & 39, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (KJV)

There is joy unspeakable in the heart of the child of God because of the assurance of eternal salvation! My prayer for you today is that you have a personal relationship with the Lord that never forsakes His own.  If you are not acquainted with the Lord as your personal Savior I would be happy to show you from His Word what you need to do to have this assurance of eternal salvation.  Please contact me via email if I can be of help to you.
