God Is Always By Your Side

I've just read a few words from one of my new 40% off books from Barnes and Noble. I can tell it's going to be a good one!  I just love it when that happens!

This is where I found today's inspiration.

In good times and bad, in every hill and valley of life, at any time of day or night, God is always by your side.  He is willing and waiting to share His blessings with you and help you rise above every obstacle.   There may be days when you feel as if you can handle everything on your own and days when relying on God is the only way you'll make it through the day. 

As for me, I need God's help in everything I do, everyday, all day.  I know that He is with me in all instances and in all the moments in between.  I call on Him often, to guide me, and to light my path.

God will never leave us alone.  He is there to give us strength, if we will only trust in His plan for our lives.  He is there for us to rest in His promises, He cherishes each of us for we are His very own.

God is always by our side, isn't that the most reassuring words you've ever heard?  Just knowing God is always there for us, that we are never far from His care, His comfort and His love, sustains me each and every day.

"The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." Deuteronomy 31:8

The GLOW Ladies are still studying The Circle Maker. 
It's a book about praying circles around your needs or wants.

This short paragraph from this week's study on Chapter 7 made me laugh.

It reminds me of the man who was sizing up God by asking, "God, how long is a million years to you?"  God said, "A million years is like a second."  Then the man asked, "How much is a million dollars to you?"  God said, "A million dollars is like a penny."  The man smiled and said, "Could you spare a penny?"  God smiled back and said, "Sure, just wait a second."

The message I got....don't ever put God to the test, He'll get ya every time!


  1. First of all, I had to laugh at the little "joke"....God sure does have a sense of humor, doesn't He? Second...I love your background and header. I usually look at your blog on my phone but I'm on the desktop....sooooo pretty! Thirdly...Ms. you realize what a heart you have for Women's Ministry because that's exactly what this blog is, a type of ministry? You reach out to us each day with such inspiration and from your precious heart! Love you, sweet Friend.

    1. Thank you Deb for your encouraging words. Sometimes I feel I have nothing to say but God always sends me something and when I feel like quitting He always sends someone with encouraging words to keep me going. Ain't God Good!!!!? Love you too sweet friend, you are a blessing.

  2. Oh Mary, thank you for that, it feels good to be reminded that He is by my side everyday of my life.

    Bless you sweet friend,

    Debbie Kay
