I cried unto the Lord and He heard me!

Dear Friends,

Having gone through some rough circumstances over the past few months, I can tell you one thing
without any doubt. When we call upon the name of the Lord, he HEARS!

I don't ever remember (in all my 50+ years of life) a time that was rougher than the last several months.
I know many of you have gone through hard times also. There is one common thread in all of our lives.
That is that the Lord is faithful! When we cry out to Him, He hears us, and He NEVER forsakes us, He NEVER
leaves us, and He NEVER fails us.

God is calling His people to a higher place, with that call will come a degree of pressing that you have
not experienced in the past. The place of pressing is where all that is good (all that  is God) is supposed
to show in and through us. It is the place and time that is hardest to show that we belong to Him. It is
the place that it is hardest to act like Him... It is always a time right before promotion also.

Here is the good news. Tears may endure for a night, but Joy comes in the morning!

In Psalm 18, David said "I cried unto the Lord, and he heard me", Psalm 142 David said "I cried unto the
Lord with my voice, with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication"...

David KNEW how to reach the heart of God, even in times of things seeming that God had forsaken him,
David knew that God was never more than a breath away. He knew that when He cried out to God, that God
not only heard him, but ALWAYS rescued him. He knew that God was just waiting for him to say "God, I can't do
this without your help".. 

It is  in the hardest of times when we realize how weak we are, and how strong God in us is!
Let God strengthen and uphold you my dear friends.. He is with you!

Isaiah 41:10 says "Fear thou not, for I am with thee, be not dismayed for I am thy God, I will strengthen thee,
I will help thee, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness" KJV..

My 3 thoughts for you today are:

1: God is a good God.
2: He loves you.
3: He is in control, and will take care of you.

Hang onto Jesus, He is there for you!

Jesus loves you, and so do I.. 

Joe

Hey Joe, Mike F. just reminded me to think of you today, and pray for you. I was planning on surprising you as we passed your area last May but our rig never made it that far. We only made IN and back. Anyway, I see you are still eating from the Tree of Life and not the other tree. This year many things are ramping up and I believe that 2014 will be even greater. When we are about to achieve the greatest of breakthroughs is when the enemy is at his best evil self against us. Count it all as good and that you are worthy of such attack. I think we are all in the crosshairs right now. I just don't like to focus on him any longer than I need to put him in my crosshairs and pull that trigger! Bang... he's dead. Let Christ arise my brother. Love you, Bob

Bob and Mike,
Hope all is well with you both. 
Yes, it has been over a year since I was in here. 
A lot has happened in the last year and a half..
Gayle and I, and kids are all well. We moved to Tulsa Oklahoma in September of 2013, and I became a partner in a datacenter in Tulsa at the same time. 

My cell is still the same 402-670-3282
Lets talk..
Blessings to you both, and yours!

Hey Joe, much water has flowed through the dam since last hearing from you. Many changes have taken place in our lives as well... as God would have it. Many huge miracles to report also. Glad to hear you are well and doing well too. I'll be in touch when I can. I still don't own a cell phone and am working a job right now to pay the bills until I get the WayTea on shelves... coming soon... so it's hard for me to spend much time on the phone. My email address is now Waytea@centurylink.net or if you have iMessage or iPhone I could put you in and we could FaceTime or something?? Love to you and your family. Bob
