God’s Tattoos

I have three tattoos and each one is meaningful. I have one representing my marriage, faith and my baby girl. No matter where I go, they go with me. Same is true with God’s presence. We don’t have to try hard to get to God. He is with us. We are like God’s tattoos.

I’d like to share today’s Joyce message.

God’s Tattoos

by Joyce Meyer – posted September 14, 2012

Where could I go from  Your Spirit? Or where could I flee from Your presence? If I ascend up into  heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol (the place of the dead), behold,  You are there. If I take the wings of the morning or dwell in the uttermost  parts of the sea, even there shall Your hand lead me, and Your right hand shall  hold me. —Psalm 139:7-10

Sometimes we try so hard to get into the presence of God,  but the truth is that it is impossible to get away from Him. He is in constant  pursuit of us. You may sometimes feel that the Lord is not near, but that is  why knowing the Word is so important.

The prophet Isaiah brought a complaint before the Lord,  reporting that His people were saying: The  Lord has forsaken me, and my Lord has forgotten me. [And the Lord answered] “Can a woman forget her  nursing child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, yet I will not forget  you. Behold, I have indelibly  imprinted (tattooed a picture of) you on the palm of each of My hands (Isaiah  49:14-16).

Parents did not originate  the idea of keeping pictures of their children handy—God carries a picture of  His children everywhere He goes. The next time you question your self-worth,  remember that God has your picture tattooed on the palms of His hands.

From the book New Day, New You by Joyce Meyer.

Weekend fun

We have good days and we have not so good days but even then, there is always some good in any day! This weekend was good in every way. 🙂

 

A wonderful woman whom I accidentally met at CVS, 3 years ago took me out to a late birthday lunch on Saturday afternoon. We caught up for three hours. I had seen her a couple of months before that when she came over for my daughter’s one year birthday!

Saturday night, we chilled at home and then walked to Yogurt land with the fam and on our way back, stopped at my cousin’s place to see her munchkin who just turned 2 months. Emma was having so much fun playing with her.

Sunday, we had a Water Baptism service at church. So touching.

One of the take away lessons from the sermon was

When you decide to follow Jesus, the storms in life don’t go away but He won’t let you walk alone and He will walk with you and get you through.

Afterwards, took Emma to her first birthday invite at Kids playhouse. That was a crazy 2 hours but ton of fun.

We got home to daddy, ate pizza, and watched football until later in the evening when Emma fell asleep, I got to out to sushi with my lovely sister.

oh and then I got to edit one of my all time favorite photos of me and my hubby!!! This was taken 2 years ago, at my cousin’s wedding.

 

That’s what I call a perfect weekend 🙂

Consider This

This is by far one of my favorite videos by Max Dubinsky about leaving home to go searching for faith and rediscovering it all. Enjoyed all the pictures especially their wedding photos in the end and all the message behind it. Watching this made my heart smile and refreshed my faith. I wanted to share with you because I want you to CONSIDER THIS.
