When people disappoint you and make you want to cry, you shake your head and ponder and ask the questions why. Then God gently reminds us to put our faith in Him for HE's really the ONLY one in whom we always can depend. HE is there to listen and HE won't ignore our cry and when others have forsaken us, HE's always standing by! #gigism

I don't care what the SIGN says!!

Several years ago, I was travelling with some friends in Pennsylania and we got lost. After a few miles of wandering aimlessly, we finally convinced the MALE driver to pull over and ask for directions. After he’d gotten the directions, we proceeded up the road. As we approached the highway that clearly stated which way we should go, the driver refused to go that way. He said, ‘I don’t care what the SIGN says, the man said bear left!!!!” Well, you guessed it. We were lost again. Years later, whenever I see this gentleman it is a joke that we still laugh about. He still utters, “I don’t care what the SIGN says, the man said……well you know!! LOL

Isn’t that how we do GOD!! We get lost, and FINALLY figure out that we need to ask for directions. Once He puts us on the right road, we get over confident and begin on our merry way! Then HE gives us a SIGN! A CLEAR, OBVIOUS SIGN so that we will know which way to go! What do we do???? We ignore HIM and choose what man says. We chose what the world says and low behold we are lost again and calling on God for new directions. I sure am glad that HE knows just where to find us and HE doesn’t mind helping us when we call. Just like the hymn says, “Ask the Savior to help you, comfort, strengthen, and keep you; He is willing to aid you, He will carry you through!”

I don’t know about you, but I would rather listen to GOD, follow HIS signs and stay on the road heading right! His road is smoother with fewer detours and NO DEAD ENDS!

How about you?

Getting EXACTLY what you want!

We are living in an instant society. We have high speed Internet and we want it at blazing speeds. We have fast food, fast cars, and phones. We want it NOW!

What happens when God says WAIT?! We go into a panic. What if waiting meant getting EXACTLY what you wanted. Would you be willing to sit back and patiently wait on the LORD? Even if it took years? Sometimes it takes GOD a LONG time in our concept of time to give us what we asked for. When we look back and see how we got where we wanted to be, we can see God's handiwork. We can see how He was precisely moving things around to prepare us for our blessings.

God's time is not our time though. The word says, "They that wait upon the LORD shall RENEW their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint! Isaiah 40:31 (King James Version)".  Re-new means to make new again. It means that you always have your strength. HE not only keeps you strong while you are waiting but your strength and endurance are increased. Just as lifting weights build strength and endurance so does waiting. Once the wait is over, you are able handle the NEW things that HE has prepared for you. 

You can RUN and not be weary! You can WALK and not faint! Wait in obedience on the LORD!

Walk on by?

When you see someone is hurting do you stop or walk on by? Do you ask if you can help them out or do you ignore their cry? Do you really want to know if there is something you can say that will help that saddened soul realize they can make it another day? Sometimes all it takes is listening to lift a spirit high so remember these words I say to you the next time you walk on by.#Gigism !

Love of a Lifetime

As my grandmother and I walked arm in arm down the hall of the assisted living facility, she pressed her cheek to mine and said, “I’ve been this way before, but I wanted to share it with you.” “What did she mean?” I thought. “It’s time for me to go. I’m tired.” she said. I looked at the nurse and beckoned for her to help me get her to her room for she was getting weaker by the moment. She sat down on the bed and in one fluid motion, began to fall back and took her last breath. In that instant, I saw my grandfather. He appeared in time to catch her in his arms before her head hit the pillow. As soon as she passed, in a split second, she sensed him and flashed the biggest smile as she turned toward him and their eyes met. He said, “Hello beautiful!” The moment was so intimate that I felt as if I was intruding. There was so much love that flowed between them that it seemed to radiate throughout the room. Agape love!

I awoke from my dream with with tears in my eyes, praising God for allowing me to witness such pure, genuine love. Then HE reminded me that we All must pass this way. Just as a baby must leave the mother’s womb, we must leave this earth. Such joy to return to HE who created us and experience that pure agape love.

What is AGAPE? It is - unconditional love that is always giving and impossible to take or be a taker. It devotes total commitment to seek your highest best no matter how anyone may respond. This form of love is totally selfless and does not change whether the love given is returned or not. There are different types of love such as Eros and Phileo but agape is the true form of love.

I pray that you experience this agape love, the love of our FATHER for HE is love (1 John 4:7-12). May your heart be filled with happiness and your soul with unspeakable joy, in Jesus name, Amen!

*** My grandparents were married for over 70 years and passed within 6 months of each other. He passed away first. They were in love for a lifetime***

Completing Installation!! FILE DONE!

While reinstalling windows on my computer, a message kept flashing. “Completing Installation! Completing Installation!” It seemed like the installation was taking forever. It required much patience.

“Do you have the patience to allow GOD to complete the work that HE has begun in you or are you going to try and do it on your own? “ God’s way may take longer than you thought. It may take re-booting your system several times. You may not see instant results but the lights are still flashing and HE is still at work. He is still completing the installation that HE started. Remember, while you are waiting patiently, God is continually working in you, on you and through you until the installation is complete. ~ (note to self)

Imagine that GREAT getting up morning when HE says, “WELL DONE my good and faithful servant!” FILE DONE!

Philippians 1:1-6 ..”being confident of this, that HE who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
