An overflowing heart

Happy Spring day from Auckland New Zealand my friends!🌻🌱

“My heart is bursting with a new song; lyrics to my king erupt like a spring for my king, to my king; my tongue is the pen of a poet, ready and willing.” (Psalm 45:1 The Voice)

Lord Jesus, you are so beautiful, so kind, so loving, so gentle and so gracious… My heart is filled with devotion to you!

Today is a beautiful time to reflect on the journey… Even in the midst of this pandemic invading our lives, bringing unprecedented changes, we have hope. I’m looking up to God, and remembering that there is one thing that will never change; no matter what life throws at us, “the lovingkindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him…” (Psalm 103:17).

Despite Covid-19 pandemic, God is still with us and He has not forgotten us. God still answers our prayers even when we sometimes lack in faith to persevere. This last weekend, my son and his wife finally got married, surrounded by their three children and just some of our close family members.

New Zealand is a beautiful place and the location chosen was at a tiny town by the sea. It has meaning as its where my son’s wife is from. A most idyllic place – on the sand dunes by the sea – with beautiful sceneries of the sea and mountains, hills of (Port Waikato, Maraetai Bay). The special occasion has given our family some beautiful memories to look back to especially at unsettled times like we’re experiencing now.

God promises:

“I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6 NKJV).

“For I know the thoughts that I think towards you says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV).

Therefore, how fitting it is to praise God from the bottom of my heart, giving Him honour for all He has done! God created time, and He is never late. No prayers are wasted for our loved ones…

And, I will continue to look up to God as the journey continues…

Be encouraged!

  1. Praise the Lord! …. thanks so much, for your encouraging words, dear Lome! I was SO blessed! I also thank you for your prayers last week, as I was sick in the hospital, and during my surgery. God’s presence was SO awesome, and HIS peace, the whole week. Not a bit of fear or nervousness, the whole time, and I got to share the love of JESUS with SO many, and pray with my doctors and anesthesiologists! I am healing well, here at home…..TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!!

        You know that you and your family will remain in our prayers, and thanks for yours, as I continue to heal. Still recovering from the general anesthesia…..usually takes about 5 – 7 days…..feeling a little loopy from time to time, and I’m not taking any pain meds.

        Love you!
        Linda & Gary
