I AM WEAK BUT HE IS STRONG

Jesus Loves Me

And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?  (Matthew 21: 16) 

Please listen to the childrenhttp://youtu.be/KBALcN701NU

It’s all right to be human.  When your mind wanders while you are praying, don’t be surprised or upset.  Simply return your attention onto Jesus.  Share a secret smile with Him, knowing He understands because He sees your heart.  Rejoice in His love for you, which has no limits or conditions.

Intersperse peaceful moments throughout your day for this practice enables you to attain a quiet and gentle spirit, which is pleasing to our heavenly Father.  As you learn to live in close contact with the Lord, the Light of His Presence will filter through you to bless others.  Your weakness and woundedness are openings through which the Light of God’s glory shines forth.  God’s Word says, “My strength is made perfect in (your) weakness (2 Corinthians 12: 9).  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; He will NEVER leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31: 6)! 

The Lord would say unto you…

“I want you to be all Mine.  I am weaning you from other dependencies.  Your security rests in Me alone– not in other people, things, or circumstances.  I am always before you, beckoning you on, one step at a time.  Trust Me to know what is best for you; I created you because I love you and have a plan for every day of your life!”

    just passing this on

    I wanted to share some good news from Capitol Hill! As you know, I
    lead a ladies Bible study here in the Senate. One of my girls, Jordan,
    invited us to a private screening of the movie “Courageous” here at
    the Capitol sponsored by the Congressional Prayer Caucus. This
    screening was open to members of Congress, Staff, and U.S. Capitol
    Police and their families.
    It’s highly unusual to be granted permission to show a movie when it’s
    currently in Theaters.

    You must understand that securing a room anywhere in the Capitol
    complex is a royal pain in the neck.

    – A room must be approved for use by the rules and ethics committee

    – A member of Congress must make the request

    – Once the room is secured, you have to ask one office to help turn on
    the lights

    – You need to call another person to bring a podium

    – You need to call yet another department to bring a microphone

    – You need to call another person to bring the cord for the mic to
    secure it to the podium and to plug it in so it will work.

    *(You can’t make this stuff up. I promise… it’s ridiculous)

    About a year ago a friend asked me if I was aware of the Congressional
    Prayer Caucus. (The Congressional Prayer Caucus is a group of 100
    members of Congress who meet in a room just off the House floor to
    pray once a week for upcoming votes.) I had never heard of it.

    When I saw Jordan yesterday, I learned that not only is her dad a U.S.
    Congressman from VA, but that he also CHAIRS the Congressional Prayer
    Caucus. The CPC sponsored the screening of “Courageous,” and it was
    paid for out of the personal funds of 10 members of Congress (i.e. no
    tax payer money was involved).

    My cyncial self was anticipating a handful of folks showing up for the
    screening and at least one group of protestors. I was STUNNED when I
    arrived in the Jefferson Auditorium in the Library of Congress to see
    the place packed. There had to have been 300-350 people there. The
    Capitol Hill Police Chief was present. I spotted one USCP Officer who
    brought his wife and all 10 of his children (who were more
    well-behaved than a lot of adults I know). From my spot, I counted
    about 35-40 members of Congress, including one Senator. I was later
    told that 90 members of Congress had RSVPd, and many stood in the back
    but left early for previous commitments.

    As we watched the film, I was even more SHOCKED to hear the gospel
    CLEARLY proclaimed. No one made any apologies. The member sitting in
    front of me cried throughout the entire movie.

    As soon as it was over, there was an immediate standing ovation from
    the audience. No protesting. Then, to my delight, the writer of
    “Courageous” and the lead actor were introduced *(they were in the
    audience the entire time). Another standing ovation for them… I
    couldn’t believe it. We had three separate standing o’s. I leaned over
    to my friend Hannah and said, “I’m sorry, am I in the U.S. Capitol or
    am I at church?”

    The chief of staff for Congressman Forbes ( Jordan ‘s Dad) told me
    that I wouldn’t believe the hours of prayer soaked into this evening.
    By the time they had reserved the room, opened up tunnels, and paid
    the Capitol Police overtime, it cost about $5,000 to pull this off – and
    about 10 members of Congress paid for this out-of-pocket.

    There was no doubt that God was present in that room and that the
    message in the movie “Courageous” resonated with many people. Eternal
    things took place.

    I know all of you care and are praying for our country. Know that YOUR
    prayers are being heard and being answered. God is not finished with
    us yet. He is still here and His remnant remains in the halls of our
    government. AMEN.
