Hey friends, how are you today? How was your weekend? We had a very enjoyable one; well at least I did. On Saturday, I completed a few chores and then indulged in a very soothing, pampering day.  I washed my hair and applied not one, but three face masks. Also gave myself a manicure and painted my nails, which I had to remove before church on Sunday, because it chipped; all that time thrown down the drain. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. After service on Sunday, I helped serve at our Fellowship dinner, which was a lot of fun.  Usually we leave soon after, but this time, we were actually one of the last people to leave the church! Shocking! Who are we?   Sooo, how was your weekend?John 10 10I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior at a very early age.  I have said before, I didn’t really grow up with a godly, father figure in my life, therefore the Lord fit that bill.  He became my Heavenly Father.  For years, that’s really all He was; my Heavenly Father.  He was the best Father; I could not ask for any better.  PS 139 16He totally loved me, and He made sure I knew it. He protected me and provided for me; just like any earthly father would and should do.  For years, I ran to my Heavenly Father every time I needed something.  If I needed to do well in a subject at school, (I didn’t like school, ‘well’ would do) I spoke to Him about it.  Just not failing it, would do (I know, I know… mediocrity; something I would never accept from our girls).  As I was saying, my Heavenly Father came through every time I needed Him.Is 64 8As time went on, I realized my prayers were not answered as quickly as I was used to, nor sometimes, were they answered in the way I wanted.  I wanted to teach after I left school, I waited three years for that dream. Our first child ended in a miscarriage, that certainly wasn’t my plan.  What happened? Where was my Heavenly Father? Sometimes, I think I’m a tad bit slow and hard headed.  Do you know it was quite a few years before that mystery was solved? I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the Lord tried to get my attention in various ways through His Word and also through various people, but I kept on going.  I was content with a Heavenly Father when my God was so much more.  He is so very much more!Isaiah 66 1

  • He is my Miracle Worker and a Way-maker and so much more
  • He is the Great Friend and so much more
  • He is the Great Comforter and so much more
  • He is the Great LOVE and so much more
  • He is the Great Judge and so much more
  • He is my Great Savior and so much more
  • He is my Great Redeemer and so much more
  • He is my Great Sanctifier and so much more
  • HE IS SO VERY MUCH MORE…
  • Is 46 9

He is more than the one box, I wished to assign to Him.  He is all of it and so much more.  He is beyond my imagination. He is my Heavenly Father, Miracle Worker, Friend, Comforter, Savior, Love, Judge and still He is so very, much more.  He is the Creator of the Universe and so much more. And He desired that I know that, He, GOD, will not be assigned to a box; not my box and not your box.  He is GOD.  Do you know my GOD?thanks buttonclosing1brenda

  1. Yeah, many people withdraw from God because He refuses to be their “Sugar Daddy”, providing their every whim. The title God means He is Sovereign. It is for Him to decide and not us. The quicker we learn that the sooner we will stop stumping our spiritual toes and banging our spiritual heads against the wall. It is so much better to know the God of the universe, the Savior of the world than the kind daddy of our own making. Thank you for the reminder.

  2. “He is more than the one box, I wished to assign to Him. He is all of it and so much more.” I love this statement. I have been working on my prayers and not just coming to Him with my requests “as though I’m His administrative assistant” (Pastor Steven Furtick, “Backseat DJs” sermon). I want to come to Him just to thank Him and more often just to talk with Him. Instead, I feel like I notice that even when I am just talking with Him I start to mention my needs. He knows them. He’s already worked them out. I want to know more of Him and stop confining Him to being the task doer but feel more of Him as lover of my soul, as I already know He is providing all of my needs.

  3. I had a father who walked out on us when I was 14 and my mother fell apart emotionally. I then found a verse in the Psalms that said “When my father and my mother forsake me, the Lord will take me up.” And He did – He does.

  4. Amen! I didn’t accept Him as my Heavenly Father until my 40’s (The Power Of Word’s, a two parter in my blog) but He is my everything now! Today I cling to Him as my Father of Truth because the father of lies is trying to feed me junk, but I rebuke those lies with my Fathers truth! Standing on the Rock of my Salvation! Thank you for your loving post!
