Psalm 33:4 For the word of the Lord is right and true; He is faithful in all He does.

Psalm 33:12 (Be in prayer for our country!) Blessed in the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance.

Psalm 33:15 He who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.

Psalm 33:20-22 We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.

While reading Psalm 33:20-22 and especially verse 21, it struck me that as we wait upon the Lord, our hearts rejoice in Him. Waiting on God and putting our hope in Him, is not a time of sitting around and doing nothing. Waiting for the Lord to do something on our behalf or open the doors He wants us to walk through, is not just a time of sitting back and doing nothing. During this time we are not only exercising our faith in Him by putting our hope in Him, we are to be rejoicing. “In Him our hearts rejoice.” Because we trust in His holy name, because we know that He is our help and our shield, because we know that He is on our side and wants only what is best for us, we rejoice! As we wait on the Lord, putting our faith to work and resting all of our hopes in Him, we praise Him, we worship Him. “In Him our hearts rejoice.”

Psalm 63:7-8 Because You are my help, I sing in the shadow of Your wings. My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
