Without Him Part 1

The joy of the Lord is my strength.  Nehemiah 8:10

*************************************************

Without Him, I would be nothing

Without Him, I’d surely fail

Without Him, I would be sinking…like a ship without a sail

Jesus, oh Jesus – do you know him today?

Please don’t turn Him away.

Oh Jesus, my Jesus, without Him, how lost, I would be.

— Mylon LeFevre

If you’d rather listen, you can look at Elvis’ pretty face as he sings!  I think he was so handsome when he was a young man.

Several of my blog readers and friends have inquired about my strength and positive attitude through this journey.  It is not something I accomplish on my own, that’s for sure.

It is God’s provision for me.

*************************************************

Do you know Christ?  You can!!

Romans 10:13 “For whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”

I have way more to write about this, and hope to do so soon!  In the meantime, feel free to email me questions or check out this website to see HOW YOU CAN KNOW GOD’S LOVE!

*UPDATE* – I changed the site for the weblink above to a different site.

Been a long time since you prayed?  That’s okay.  God is waiting to hear from you!  Talk to him.  It doesn’t have to be out loud!

    Love this post!!! For some reason, I’ve had one of the Psalms on my mind a lot lately… this is Ruth’s paraphrase (read: too lazy to look it up) The Lord is my light and salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? We sing it as an anthem in the choir and I love it. I’ll have to come back later with what the actual Psalm is, but it helps me and I hope it does you, too. 🙂 Praying as always…

    And I wanted to add that I think it’s okay (and important) to also admit (at least to ourselves) when we don’t feel strong or full of faith or that we have it all together. Many of the Psalms are ones of despair, when the psalmist talks about feeling abandoned by God but crying out to Him for help…

    Not saying that you feel this way at all… but I think sometimes people are expected to put a brave face on and I don’t think God expects us to do that at.all. I’m probably not making any sense, but I hope you get the gist of what I’m saying…

    Amen!!! I can’t begin to comprehend how I’d get through even one day….without HIM!! HE. IS.ALWAYS.WITH US!!! and He also places others in our path to help us bear our burdens when they become too heavy; just as Aaaron and Hur stood on either side of Moses and held up his hands when he became too tired (Ex 17:11-12). You are never alone in this battle. Praying continually. Buckets of love to you!!

    Thanks Candece for posting these words of encouragement. The world is in need of love and encouragement and it’s an honor to serve Christ by being obedient as you have just demonstrated. God is good all the time. (AND) All the time God is good.
