Especially for You!

Today is a gift… That’s why it’s called “the present!”

“… Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” I Corinthians 2:9

Not Forgotten

“How long will you forget me, O LORD? forever? how long will you hide your face from me?

How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

Lest my enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

But I have trusted in your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.

I will sing unto the LORD, because he has dealt bountifully with me.”

Psalm 13

Out of Darkness

“…Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him Who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light…”

I Peter 2:9

 

“Once I knew only darkness and stillness.

My life was without past or future,

But a little word from the fingers of another

fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.”

Helen Keller

“It is amazing what Helen Keller was able to accomplish in her life as a result of this, and it is a very inspiring example of how special we are to the Lord, as our lives can be taken from emptiness and darkness, and into the Light,  joy, and  rapture, of life in Him.”

From the Rising of the Sun

“Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.

From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’S name is to be praised.

The LORD is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens.

Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwells on high,

Who humbles himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!

He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap;

That He may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

He makes the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children.

Praise you the LORD.”

Psalm 113: 2-9

Our Father

Our Father, which art in heaven,hallowed be thy name;

Thy kingdom come;thy will be done;on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.And forgive us our trespasses,

As we forgive those who trespass against us.

Lead us not into temptation;

But deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

Amen.

New Mercies

“This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.”

“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.

The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.

The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him.

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.”

Lamentations 3: 21- 26
