About Me

Bullhead City, Arizona, United States
I am a 50 yr young disabled woman with many chronic painful physical afflictions & a illness. I am married to a wonderful man with 2 adult children. I grew up in & out of church. One of my Uncles is a recently retired Pastor . I have been saved since 1996. I love serving the Lord & fellow-shipping with my church family,family/friends! I started this blog because I was inspired and encouraged by a couple of friends blogs and felt the Lord prompting me to start a blog page after our Women's Retreat in August 2009 to use the gift of encouragement he has given me to journal what he is doing in my life and to pass on to others articles that encourage me and help me in my walk with the Lord. My prayer is that you will feel the love of Jesus and that you will be inspired and encouraged by my post. I'm just a servant Girl and a Broken Vessel called to be a Heiress of Light for the Lord. The things I post will be from my heart and things that speak to my heart. Sometimes I will just journal about Life,Family etc. My prayer is that my blog will be a source of encouragement to all my friends, family members and followers.

“God is in Control” – What does it Mean? (Roy Lessin)

Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
Isaiah 40:28 NKJV
What does it mean when we say “God is in control?” It means that we believe certain things are true about God. Things that pertain to who God is, what He has said, and what He can do. God could not be in control if He was not…
Transcendent—God is above and beyond all that He has created. He is greater than anything that exists, no matter how great it might be in the eyes of the world. He is greater than the greatest need, higher than the highest hurdle, bigger than the biggest task. Compared to God’s greatness, everything is small. That is why we can say “God is in control.”
Immanent—God’s presence and power pervade His entire creation. He doesn’t stand apart from His creation as a spectator, but works within it. He is not a God who is far off, but a God who is an ever present help in time of need. That is why we can say, “God is in control.”
Infinite—God is not limited or confined by His laws of nature or how things work within the universe. Within His will are limitless possibilities, because He is the God of no limitations…no bounds…no measure. He can part a sea, calm a storm, quiet the wind, raise the dead, open blind eyes, turn water into wine, and feed a multitude from a portion meant for one. That is why we can say, “God is in control.”
Ineffable—God is knowable, and yet He is beyond any description or definition we can find. To try and define Him would exhaust our vocabulary and leave us still searching for words. He truly is indescribable. That is why we can say, “God is in control.”
Immutable—God is without change and He is unchangeable…He is and will always be changeless. He is dependable and reliable. In an ever changing world, we can build our lives upon the One who changes not. That is why we can say, “God is in control.”
Eternal— God is from everlasting to everlasting. He is without origin. He has no start and no end. He knows the end from the beginning. We can rest in His will for our lives because He knows exactly what He is doing and He is doing it with perfect wisdom. That is why we can say, “God is in control.”
Almighty—The Lord God Almighty is seated upon His throne. He is sovereign, and He rules and reigns with absolute authority. God isn't powerful, He is all-powerful, which means He has all the power that is needed to do all that He wills to do. He has all authority and He has the final say. That is why we can say, “God is in control.”

The Crown that I wear does not tarnish;
It's not made of worldly ores. I don't need to polish and store it in a vault or behind metal doors. The Crown is a gift from my Father whose Son died so that I could be free. What a honor it is just to wear it, For His last thoughts on Earth were of me. The Crown has speacial meaning; It's not about worldly success. It stands for the Love of My Lord and Saviour,Which I wear every day like a Princess.
