Such A Gift

Christ is such a GIFT! He was given and given so much on our behalf. What a gift to know Him, love Him, and serve Him. I pray that you are able to accept and enjoy your gift in Him too! ❤
God is such a GIFT! He has been generous with us from the moment He gave us life. Without Him, nothing and no one would be. The most precious thing He ever gave me… was His Son! He gave Him for you too! God loves you! ❤
The Holy Ghost is such a GIFT! He gives me guidance, comfort, and peace that passeth all understanding! The most beautiful comfort He ever gave anyone was to my Savior as He hung on the cross for me and you. He is more than willing to give you the peace and comfort you seek! The Holy Ghost loves you! ❤

Heavenly Friendship

Friendship of a Savior
Who hath the Greater Love
To faithfully give that Good
And Perfect Thing from above.

Friendship of a Creator
Who made me for His Pleasure,
Who tells me my Image
Makes His treasure.

Friendship of a God
Who knew the Law
Would require a Blood Sacrifice
For us all.

Friendship of a Father
Who longed to Reconcile
His Prodigal Daughter
To being His Child.

Friendship of a Spirit
To Comfort, Guide, and Teach.
Who loves to Whisper, Nudge,
And Unconditionally reach.

Friendship of a Family
Preparing a Place for me.
Alas one day I’ll Fellowship
Where I was Always meant to be.

Isaiah 61:10

“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
my soul shall be joyful in my God;
for he hath clothed me
with the garments of salvation,
he hath covered me
with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decketh himself
with ornaments,
and as a bride adorneth herself
with her jewels.”
– Isaiah 61:10 KJV

Dominion is His

gaillovesgodspoetry

Great and strong is the LORD
Mighty and powerful is He.
His enemies flee His wrath.
His prodigal children plea.
His strength displays His character.
His character conveys His demand.
His holiness validates
His authority to command.
His vengeance is His pleasure.
His pleasure is to forgive.
Condemnation is His to sentence.
Clemency is His to give.
Pardon is His escape.
Redemption His restoration.
Salvation is His to offer
Because of His resurrection.

3. I am grateful that Jesus didn’t give up on me either! ❤

5 Questions from Tasha for me:

1) What made you want to start blogging?
I began Gail Loves God as a private blog to talk just between me and God.
Last summer He led me to open it while doing a challenge for a friend…

which led me to doing the…
21 Day Self Care Challenge with Lovely Anita of Discovering Your Happiness.

4) What is your favourite hobby/pass time?
Spending alone with God! ❤

5) What’s the best/worst practical joke that you’ve played on someone or that was played on you?
My family use to do practical jokes of scaring one another as a past time.
The stronger the fear the better. Hysterics were the goal.
Later when I was a part of a local young adult community organization of adults from ages 21 to 39, when we did the famous annual haunted house, for at least 2 months fear was the favorite joke. Again hysterics were the goal.
As a result, fear is a huge part of my anxiety when there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. It would be God teaching me to reverently fear Him, and learn in His Holy Word that He did not want me in hysterics, to teach me to face my fears. I may not be able to prevent sudden fear from arising, but I can turn to Him for how I face it.

“Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.”
– Proverbs 3:25 KJV

Gifts 2017 #8 Rain

Christmas Countdown: Rain is a GIFT. Of course we do not wish for flooding or heavy storms, but God is kind enough to send what is at times a much needed blessing. I love the hymn…  There Shall Be Showers of Blessing

There Shall Be Showers of Blessing
lyrics by Daniel W. Whittle

There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.

Chorus:
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead

Chorus

There shall be showers of blessing,
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.

Chorus

There shall be showers of blessing;
Send them upon us, O Lord;
Grant to us now a refreshing,
Come, and now honor Thy Word.

Chorus

There shall be showers of blessing:
Oh, that today they might fall,
Now as to God we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!

Chorus

There shall be showers of blessing,
If we but trust and obey;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
If we let God have His way.

Chorus

Gifts 2017 #5 Mercy

Christmas Countdown: Mercy is such a GIFT: Only a loving God could create such a loving gift as mercy, and only His mercy could endure forever. Through His mercy we are given a chance to be better people, to be more thoughtful, more caring, and more grateful that we have not gotten exactly what we deserve. Thank you, Jesus, for the mercy you have given me in your loving salvation. I love you.  ❤
