"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

S.O.S. ~ so many GOOD choices

It's been quite some time since I have shared any


{it's had different meanings}

but most often and lately

it has stood for

Study On SONday

(especially if it's posted Sun. around 6 p.m. like this)
however originally


A bottle with SOS washed up on the shore

was thought to stand for "help" as in "Save Our Ship" even "Save Our Souls" as a distress signal yet those were after thoughts (known as backronyms) yet on this blog, it stood for


with a song, scripture, scene and later added sermon and studies

but I have digressed from the reason I've not been sharing any


it's not because I am not doing any

nor that I don't have a song, scripture, scene or something that I'm soaking in/on

it's because I have too many and have gone in 
too many directions
 yet somehow God is weaving them together 
or else I'd be sending out a real
for HELP from
you and God
as I'm still being
(yes, that is the last study I began sharing 
but have not kept up with that here)

Here are the sessions:

Click here for Session 1.

but I now have a worse dilemma: 
I have two or maybe more that I have signed up for this summer
starting soon (I think) in June and 
perhaps you remember that I paused midstream in

"You Are Free"
by Rebekah Lyons

(hoping I'd be able to get back to it and finish it)

so that I could start

"REDEEMED" by Angela Thomas-Pharr

mostly because I can't choose

when I read about the Online Bible Study

I'm sure it's the ONE that God is leading me to do until ...

I read the next one that comes along 

after I already signed up


 one of these is one that I purchased quite some time ago

and decided that I couldn't do it because as I opened to the beginning, I felt that I needed the DVDs to go with the study to really be able to do it and now I'll have that opportunity so I don't want to miss out and because it's Lifeway's Beth Moore's:

A Study of 2nd Timothy

(which contains my life verse)

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." (NKJV) 2 Timothy 1:7 You see, God did not give us a cowardly spirit but a powerful, loving, and disciplined spirit. (TheVoice)

They ALL are so good and I'm thankful that they are being offered online 
but not all at once ... yet truthfully, I don't think I've ever seen 
a Bible Study that isn't good, just some speak to us more clearly 
in the current season of our life journey and where we're at ...

so I guess this is an indication that I need this other one too

the other choice over at

Faith Gateway OBS

is an excellent one from another excellent author

Anne Graham Lotz




the wisdom offered through the book of Daniel, his prayer and

Anne Graham Lotz
who was Chair of the National Day of Prayer
(if you missed hearing her, I recommend strongly you check this out)

[the National Prayer]

plus over at You Version, I'm working through 
and I have more saved to read

all of these helping me with

which one is for you?
which one do you think is for me?

Pray that I can receive from God what He believes is meant to guide me

As you can perhaps tell by now, I missed sharing my 
Walk On Weds.
due to 'storms'
tornadoes, thunderstorms
and those other storms
we all walk through
yet even through
these storms
heard a special
earlier this week
in two TPT emails
from a book
written by
Brian Simmons
{there are now 2 volumes}

"...Today's 'whisper' is a love letter from the Father reminding us of His consistent presence; that He holds tight to our heart and soul even when we are in our darkest hour." Brian Simmons &TPT Team

These words are so special to me and I hope you find
a part of this 'whisper' echoes in your heart too
as an encouragement or a much needed
short and  sweet
of HIS Presence and Love

"I HEAR HIS WHISPER... "Never let go of hope"

"Even in your darkest hour I will not abandon you. Speak these words over your soul: Even in your darkest hour I will not abandon you. I will heal you, I will bring My love and place it over your heart until you can say, "All is well."

Never let go of your confidence, for I will be more than enough for you. There may be a mother that could abandon her child, but I will never abandon you. Your very life is Mine and I have engraved you as nail prints into the palms of My hands. When I look at My hands I remember you and the price I paid to make you mine.
You may pass through the valley of deepest darkness and grief, but I am there with you. Your tears are liquid words and I can read them all. The ways of the world have never brought peace to your soul, but I have. Rest, beloved, in My love this day and know that in your darkness hours I will not abandon you, for we are one. Never let go of hope.from Brian Simmons

Hebrews 13:5-6 The Passion Translation

"...live content with what you have, for you always have God’s presence. 
For hasn’t He promised you, 'I will never leave you alone, never! And I will not loosen my grip on your life!' So we can say with great confidence: 'I know the Lord is for me and I will never be afraid of what people may do to me!"

then He invites me (us) with this

"Spend time with Me"

"I give you strength as you give Me time. The moments that you spend to speak with Me and listen to Me are moments filled with eternity. There is no weakness, no wavering, no doubting in My presence. This is where I energize your being, in My presence. Many influences have affected your life and your thoughts, but as you come into My glory I lavish upon you what you need the most, My love and My strength. So easily you are distracted and disturbed, so faithfully you must come and be with Me.

The peace I bring to you is not comparable to the peace known on earth. It transcends your mortal life and streams to you from My river of tranquility that pours from My throne of grace. Peace like a river will subdue your soul and wash away the words of hopelessness and pain. Come into My river of peace and float on My promises, you will never be disappointed. Listen to Me and peace will be your pillow to rest your anxious thoughts.

In My love you are able to do all things, for I strengthen you with My love. People make demands on your time and your thoughts, I wait for you to come and draw you closer when you choose Me above your friends and your family. Come as My dearest one and I will give you grace for your dearest ones on earth, so that you may show them My love.

When you give Me your time I give you My strength. Are you weak? Then come before Me until you are bathed in power. No human can empower you, for their weapons are puny and helpless. Trust in My strength, not in the affirmation of others. Watch Me work in your heart this day as you "waste" your time in My presence. I will pour you out upon the earth as My gift, My treasure, full of My love." from Brian Simmons

Can't think of any better way 
to spend
a rainy or stormy day

(or evening)

I know I need all the strength I can get from Him in the face of every kind of 'storm'
