God Saved Me Out of My Distress

God hears your heart's cry and He will answer! Psalm 107:19 says, "They cried unto the Lord in their trouble and He saved them out of their distresses…"
There was an accident at my work with one of my students that left me hurting physically and emotionally.
I prayed for God to remove the pain.
He brought a lady who asked me to pray for her daughter who was also autistic and bipolar.
"Pray about that girl and your student the way you would have prayed for your own sons," I heard the Holy Spirit prompt me. I took the Word to heart and the pain in my body and soul disappeared. God saved me out of my distress.

God is My Turnaround-Specialist

We all come up against some stubborn situations or areas of our life, where it just doesn't seem like it will turn around. I am in such a situation right now.
Everything in me cries out, "This will never change. It is impossible to change"
Yet, as Pastor says often, God is my turnaround-specialist. He turns mourning into rejoicing (Psalm 30:11); turns darkness to light; turns the curse into a blessing, etc.
In one moment, God can turn around years of defeat and frustration and give me the victory I have been praying for.
God loves me and is willing to turn my suffering  into a blessing. I chose to believe not what my flesh tells me but what God says about me. My due season is coming. My turning point begins in my thinking today, in Jesus' Name.

Listen, My Most Beautiful One

Listen, My most beautiful one—
If you ever lose sight of Me
Just follow My footsteps
Where I have led my beloved ones.
Come with all your burdens and cares.
Come to the place near
The sanctuary of My shepherds—
There you will find Me.
My dearest one,
Let me tell you how I see you--
You are so thrilling to Me.
To gaze at you is like gazing
At one of Pharaoh’s finest horses.
The strong regal steeds
Which pull His royal chariot.
Your tender cheeks are so radiant--your earrings and gem-laden necklaces set them ablaze.

from chapter 1 of the Song of Songs (The Passion Translation by Brian Simmons
