Feeling Blessed

I just have to write an entry about God's faithfulness and praise him for all he is doing.  By the skin of my teeth my electric was able to avoid disconnection.  I was stressing over it, because I didn't think I would have the money untill Friday to go towards the bill and the disconnection date was yesterday.  Ofcourse I could of and should of asked for help with it but um maybe it was pride or just knowing how everyone else's funds are low too I couldn't bring myself to.  I called the electric company Monday to see about making an arraignment (I hear ppl do it all the time) and ask if they could wait till Friday when I could pay the bill in full... but who ever answered in INDIA (don't get me started about that) was not very helpful on that front and said I didn't qualify (maybe he just didn't understand what I was trying to say cuz I sure had a hard time understanding him.. ugh again don't get me started).  So when the electric was still on yesterday and this morning I was happy for the bit of grace.  I checked my bank account balance before I left for work this morning and very happy to see my pay check was deposited early!!!  And there for I was able to pay on my bill, in the nick of time too... they said the order for disconnect was already out in the field.

See it's little things like this that I see his hands on, not just the big miraculous.  For some it maybe just a coincidence, for me it is my God taking care of me and my family's needs.. on his time table ofcourse.

Also this morning I got a chance to call into a radio program and comment on the clip of Oprah they had played in regards to what some are calling her new age church (google it or look it up on youtube or godtube).  I was commenting on the fact that she said faith and God, is a feeling that you don't have to believe in one particular book or theology but on your feelings towards a higher power.  My comments are you can not base your belief system on feelings or interpit the Bible on feelings.. because feelings change day to day, they are inconsistent and can be wrong.  But God is The same yesterday, today and Forever, he never changes.  Sometimes I don't FEEL like I am forgiven, and there was a time when I FELT I needed to do good works to enhance my salvation or earn my way to heaven but I now know that despite how I felt, what Jesus Christ did on the cross paid it all in full and I can not add to what he did by doing good deeds or take away from what he did when I fall short... IT IS FINISHED.  His grace is sufficient!! 


  1. God is faithful, isn't he?   Even at times when I am not, He still is.

  2. Yes, dear, God is good and He is faithful!  -  I stopped listening to or watching Opera years ago when I started hearing her say things that I knew contradicted scripture.  She does some marvelous good works, but I think she ought to go back and check her salvation.  -  Barbara

  3. Hi Mary-what an excellent testimony- especially these days when many ofus are struggling.  I too have seen God move this way for us- time and time again!  Also agree completely wth your comment on Oprah- feelings can be VERY fickle!  Thank God for His consistancy!!!!  May He Bless you always Mary! Carolyn

  4. I'm so behind! So awesome how God showed his faithfulness to you with th electricity!
    As for Oprah, that woman is beyond ugh...I won't get started, but like you there is only way one to Heaven and it's not through our "feelings", as you say they change from day to day. I of course God gives us instincts, but that's so different imo than gooey feelings. Satan has ahold of that woman and she's just played right into his hand like a fiddle.
