Treasured Tuesdays

Joy Through Trials

From this trial, how can I grow?
Joy during pain help me know.
What lesson can I learn?
Grant me wisdom to discern.

After it's over it's easier to see,
how a trial has strengthened me.
Father, as I'm comforted by you
Please give me a spiritual view.

Help me never grumble or complain
but look to you to always sustain.
When at last my life is o'er
I'll be with the Savior I adore.

Songfilled Sundays

I went for a walk this morning. I looked down
and saw a dime. I started focusing on the ground
and looking for change. I ended up finding 2
pennies, too.

After walking and focusing on the ground for
awhile a thought came to me. By focusing on the
ground and searching for lost change I was missing
out on more important things. I focused so hard on
looking at the ground I couldn't hear the birds
singing or feel the gentle breeze blowing. I didn't
see the beautiful flowers and trees.

Sometimes we lose the focus we should have. We
forget to focus on God, on reading His Word, on
praying to Him and listening to the Spirit. We
get too focused on our busy schedules.

It's amazing how God can use things that happen
everyday to teach a lesson. What kind of lesson
has He taught you today? I'd be glad for you to

Marvelous Monday

David's Prayer Life

David came boldly before His Father:

Falling on his face
Begging for grace
Pleading his case

Asking God to hear
Expressing his fear
Drawing so near

Taking the blame
Praising God's name
Proclaiming His fame
