Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

How do you write on the photos? I like that. I posted one or two for Christmas that I got from another blog (by permission) and was looking for more.

Happy New Year!

Beautiful ... beautiful ... I am waiting too my friend.
We also had snow here too (NC).
God bless you.



The program is part of my camera. If you have a digital camera you probably have the same type of program and choices to do the same with photos.

Couldn't see the photo but I am new at your blog. I read some older post and thought it very good. I became a follower. I invite you to visit me and follow if you like.
God bless.

Beautiful, beautiful! Hasn't the snow been amazing this year. We've had a "ton" of it in Northern AZ! The wonders of His creation never cease to amaze me!

May you have an abundantly blessed 2011!

..I think that all this god-loveydovey-stuff is totally a crap. This is too much. Faith is not blindness or stupidity, faith is love&knowledge. Prayin' with words that you don't understand or with words that you think you understood it's a waste of time, 'cause nobody will hear you. Words don't matter. This is really too much, now I can easily understand why you all people are so intolerant and ready to start a war. This is pure madness.


Dear Anonymous:

So sorry you are not willing to tell us who you are. Your own words sound like they want to start a war. I feel sad for you going through so much pain that you think the Love of God is useless. One day... you will know the TRUTH... one day you will understand. My prayer for you is that it will be - before it is too late. Jesus is coming soon --- very soon. The Scripture says:

Philippians 2:9-10
9 Therefore God exalted [Jesus] Him to the highest place
and gave Him the Name that is above every Name,
10 that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

It takes more 'faith' not to believe God than it does to believe Him. Our faith is not blind - nor stupid - it is filled with love and knowlegde and compassion.

Matthew 11:25-26 [NIV]
25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.

I will pray for you because God loves you and because He is pursuing you right now or you wouldn't even be here on this site.

May you know the TRUTH - and the TRUTH will set you free. THEN - you will be FREE indeed!

Choosing JOY in this season,

PS: and Rick - if this is you writing this... He's already won your heart. It's just a matter of time.

Sorry to tell you that I'm not this Rick you're talkin' about but it's funny to see that you answer me again with words that don't belong to you. Is there something here that your brain thinks without being helped(by the so-called "god's words")? I'm sorry for you all because something, I reckon the inner need to be protected or the ancestral fears, made you think that this is the right way. And people keep dyin' because of this loss of reality's point of view. Yeah, my presence here is an experiment, a causal casuality, the wind the blows up everything when you think the day will be sunny and bright. it's a matter of revelations, right moments, real prayers, real faith,
