Sabbath Music - Shalom


Sad news this past week, with the terrible shooting at Parkland.  At times like these, I'm grateful for prayer, and for the Sabbath, because I know how He can lift a heavy spirit.  Adonai tells us to cast all of our cares onto Him because He cares for us.  This includes our concerns for the stories we hear on the news.

One of my favorite Scriptures is found in Isaiah 61:3, where Adonai says He gives us the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. I've found that praise and worship will lift one out of the deepest pit of worry, anxiety, or depression.  



Give it a try.  This Sabbath, turn on some dance music.  Lift your hands and praise Him.  Dance in your living room. Wave flags. Play your tambourine.  If you don't have flags or a tambourine, please get one!  You will be amazed at how your spirit will lift when you praise him with a flag or an intrument.  The same thing happens when you lift your hands or dance in praise to Him.


This song, SHALOM by Ted Pearce, is a good one to lift your spirits.  Listen closely to the words.  I hope you enjoy it, and if you are weary and heavy laden, take this day to rest and give Him your cares.  Praise Him most of all.  I know you will be lifted and refreshed.  One meaning of shalom is peace, and I pray for you to have that sweet, special peace, Gail-Friends.


Love and blessings to you all.

The Devil Smiled





My heart hurts and my prayers are for all of the people affected by the Parkland shooting yesterday. Gun control is not the answer. Heart change - repentance and turning to God's Word, will, and ways is the answer.

I read an article by Tod Starnes today, and he says it well:

"Another American high school has been turned into a killing field. And the nation wonders why.
Well, I’m going to answer that question for you. And the answer may leave you a bit unsettled...."
Read the remainder of Tod Starnes' article at this LINK.

Pray for America, Gail-Friends, and BELIEVE a change will come to this country.  I believe it will happen because people are praying and turning to righteousness.  We are called, as believers, to be light to the world.  That means to teach others to obey the things He has commanded.  Righteousness exalts a nation.  We are to be righteous and obey Him in all things.  This is what will make America great again.

And I was touched by these words spoken about the tragedy:

" In times of tragedy, the bonds that sustain us are those of family, faith, community, and country. These bonds are stronger than the forces of hatred and evil - and these bonds grow even stronger in the hours of our greatest need."

Pray for him because he is under tremendous attacks for his efforts to turn the country around.  He and his family are under constant threat.  My prayer is for his safety and for him to be led in the paths of righteousness and justice.
