Another great message

I got this message in email yesterday as I was going over a huge bill list... trying to figure out how we are going to keep from drowning to the point we will lose it all... in the back of my mind hoping that God can allow me to be one of the lucky ones that will win the lottery. (at least enough to catch up the house payment and not be in fear of losing our home)

This was very well received though and felt the need to share in hopes it would help others.

Are you a kept woman, and praise God for it????

I Am a 'Kept' Woman?

You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind,
But GOD kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3)

There were times when I thought I could go no longer,
But the LORD kept me moving. (Gen 28:15)

At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong,
But the LORD kept my mouth shut. (Psa. 13)

Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough,
But GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid, etc.., (Matt. 6:25 -34)

When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up.
When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong! (I Pet. 5:7, Matt. 11:28-30)

I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me!
I'm blessed to be 'kept.'

Are you...or do you know a 'kept' woman ?
If so pass it on to her to let them know they are 'too'!

I'm Kept by the Love and Grace of God!

Yes, I'm kept, too, and sometimes take it for granted. Thanks for the reminder. Hope all works out with your finances.

Thank you for this. Every once in a while, we need to be reminded on how blessed we are instead of focusing on the bad things in life.

Your stitching is beautiful. Looking forward to more updates on your wizard. Thanx for leaving a comment on my blog. I've added you to my Google Reader and will definitely come back for a visit.

Hope everything turns out fine for you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Yes, I am a kept woman, too. Thanks for the well wishes about Pumpkin. I hope you can feel the big {{HUGS}} coming back your way.

Hugs to you Dawn...we have been there, we can fully relate to your situation. God is in control! That is the part we must remember! God took care of us when our big financial trial hit & my DH didn't even know God then. Helped make a believer out of him thou! Praying for you!!!

Amen!! I have been going through some of the same lately- whenever I start worrying I just remind myself "God is in control."

It's like I am driven to this one, so that I can forward this to my niece who has been mentally abused by her husband. I hope you don't mind me copying it and email it to her. God Bless you.
