The Lord is My Keeper

"The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and coming in from this time forth, and forever more."
-Psalms 121:7-8





AMAZING LOVE! How can it be? That thou, my God should'st die for me!!!

....I am really so speachless right now, God is so GREAT! All glory and honour to HIM!

"My chains fell off, my heart was free! I rose, went forth, and followed Thee!! Amazing love, how can it be, that thou my God, should'st die for me!"

Isa 53:10 Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

I really didn’t want to turn on this electronic system to see if I got any email, I slowly checked my Blog and it happened that you wrote me. Before I Continue, I want to say God is so Good.

Rebecca, Thank you for sharing the words of God with me. Thank you for guiding my heart to focus on God and in His sufficiency. All sufficiency is found in the Most High God. God is enough for me when all things fail around me. And only when everything around me fails I will cherish the Most High Father.
I never thought fellowship can be possible through a blog spot. God is SoOoO Gracious.
When reading Psalm 37 it felt like I received a cold glass of water in the heat of a Desert. I am speechless. Especially verse 3-7 but now I look at it is all amazing especially when we look at vs. 16 and 18 but most of all look at verse 23 - 26. Dad is holding your hand and my hand; isn’t that amazing. This whole Psalm is great!
In today’s reading I have been blessed! Our Father showed me The Magnificent of His Son. Christ is God! (Contrast the 1st and 2nd part of vs. 39). God = Jesus. Just skim through chapter 6-9. That’s a lot of reading but so often I find the people Jesus heals at His feet. Or they are trembling. Parents who had their daughter resurrected from the dead were amazed. When Jesus cast the legions out of the demon possessed man the country men implored Jesus to leave because they were afraid. The disciples were afraid and amazed when Jesus commanded the waters to stop; making them calm. Peter, James and John were afraid and bowing down at the transfiguration, it continues on and on. That savior who saved us is above comprehension. HE is Jesus! And I am so unworthy. This is Grace. Amazing Grace!
Thank you for encouraging me to continue praying for Gods will to be evident in my life. I’m honest it’s really hard for me to walk through this land and not know what God intends to do with me. I mean career wise. My only hope for living is Christ and my desire is to live only for Him. Where ever he may guide me to go.
If you haven’t viewed this YouTube Clip I recommend everyone to do so. It’s a dear Missionary sharing. His name is Paul Washer. I think you should be familiar with him but Idk.

Thank you for your service,

Privet, (hello)

In my weakness my Lord is made strong. God chose the foolish things of this world and revealed his Glory to the lowly. Rejoice in your salvation; for that is where we see the work of God not our own. Rejoice in Calvary, not in the things of this world that are fading away. I was convicted of Idol worshiping today. The idol was me. Let me explain.

There are days where Christians awaken and are so blessed in their morning readings. It feels like we just came down from the mountain where Jesus was transfigured. Then we go on and we evangelize, we serve and end the day better than ever; being so joyous in the prosperity of the day. But there are days where we awaken, we are rushed and don’t read the bible, Go on and reject or miss out on the opportunity to evangelize, the day continues to go downhill from there. Why do I feel so downcast? It is because we have chosen to rejoice in our Christian duties than in Christ Himself. I must rejoice in the one who is within me. Not my Works, He must be the source of my Joy. Rejoice in the Lord always not in myself neither my Christian duties. It is still developing in my mind I can’t quite put it all into words.

Here is a passage that goes along with what God is doing in me. It’s found in Luke 10: 38-42.

But I watched a sermon by Paul Washer this morning that I couldn’t have enough of. It has to do with what I am meditating on! If you have time, I think it will be amazing for you to listen to it. It’s called “Clothe in Christ.” There are two parts to it. I can’t wait to listen to the second. But I will wait.

The Gospel of Luke is so amazing; actually the Whole bible is. It just reveals the greatness and the Godliness and holiness of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Also I read my Savior rejoicing. Look at how amazing our savior is and share in His joy. Luke 10:17-24
When everything goes wrong in my life it only confirms that God is enough. It reminds me I have nothing else. Not that I don’t need nothing else. I have nothing else. I had nothing but then HE saved me. Like Paul washer says isn’t salvation enough.

You said you’re going to work. Where do you work? Do you enjoy it? From last Friday I am Jobless in a sense I have my other job that will last me until my departure to Ukraine but this job I used to work at I ended because of my departure to the land my God predestined for me to be born in.
The 8 min. Clip ‘Laminin’ was so cool. That is one Amazing protein. It shows that Christ is the creator of all things and He is worthy of praise. It reminds me of a passage that speaks about Christ dying and bearing the wrath of GOD for the elect from before the foundation of this world. Even Adam and Eve had this cell. That is amazing.

HEY God bless you Thanks for 1 Peter 5:6-9. I am thankful that I get to share in your readings! Amazing passage. I hope I may be transformed by it. WHEN things get hard I must cast my anxieties on HIM for HE Cares! I love my Dad, He has done such an impossible things to save me, and Gives me a joyous life to live and be in total dependence on HIM.

Hey What keeps you Busy? I find it fascinating to know How God is at work in you!

God bless!Eph 5:1-8

Alive Because of HIM,

Hello Rebecca!
Well my name is really easy to pronounce but hard to read. The easiest way to pronounce it is if you say the letter V in place of _Vi_ following with the word Tall (tal) and smoothly finishing it with the letter e say e the way you would say it in the alphabet not its sound but just e. It comes out to look like, V-Tall-e. My name Vitaliy means Life. And I’m Glad it means that because for the majority of my life I was spiritually dead but now I am alive. I tend to say my name means everything you see in me. But it’s hard for a person that only knows me by blog posts.
I am surprised that I may know you but not yet have I said one word. God is so knowing and Creative. I can’t even say the right word to describe HIM. What I mean is I know you through letters. It’s strange because although I don’t see you, your there! You’re more alive than this computer that I am typing on. It makes my mind fall in awe.
So you’re excited about College. That College is very formal. So you’re going to be away from family, that’s really sad but exciting at the same time.
Thank you for sharing a need that I can pray for. I will be praying for your grandmother.
Well what am I involved in.
It’s cool because is used to work at starbucks Coffee Company but now I am away from work. I’m done with both school and work that’s a relief. Well spend lots of time preparing for Ukraine, but I wish I could put so much more time into preparation. Our group of 11 people is so amazing. Everyone is so different but at the same time sharing the Salvation in Christ.

The fund raisers for the trip are time consuming. Things such as Carwashes, and Bake sales, but at the same time they are fun. About 1 to 2 times a week our Ukraine team gathers, I am the one leading the meetings. So I might be considered the Servant of the group. “He who wants to lead must be a slave of all”

At this moment I lead a bible study group in our youth. It’s mostly Gentle men that attend. It’s an honor to be studying Gods word and leading a study in it.

During Bible study preparations God Makes His name known so magnificently. He is LORD, and no other. I Cant express what confort I feel to hear that over and over through the old testament. At the same time I am humbled because when preparing I realize I know and have lived so little. I am the dust from which He made me.

When reading you say you are the oldest of 7 Kids I became shocked I thought only Russians have Lots of Children! I’m actually the second youngest. I have a brother that is 7. He is more than I can handle. His birthday is actually 2 days after yours, the 20th. Hey, you should post a Pic. Of all of your siblings! That will be cool.

I tend to try to be as much of a help in our church as I can, either I help organize events, Preach, or just wash dishes.
Well anyways I got to prepare for things and I feel a little behind thank you for your ears! God Bless you dearly!

Hey I was reading a passage and I was trying to find out its significant and application by looking at the context and so on. Check it out!

Luke 11: 14-36

Thank you for the passage in Corinthians God is at work within us. He saves us. He is so Great!

God Bless you!

Enjoy the sermon!

A slave that is at your side,
Vitaliy K.
