I Do, Don’t You?

pexels-photo-1477359.jpeg

I know a great Savior, I do; don’t you? I live by His favor, I do; don’t you?

For grace I implore Him, I worship before Him, I love and adore Him, I do; don’t you?

I need Him to lead me, I do; don’t you? Heaven’s manna to feed me, I do; don’t you?

Whatever betide me, I need Him beside me, In mercy to hide me, I do; don’t you?

I love to be near Him, I do; don’t you? He speaks and I hear Him, I do; don’t you?

For me He is caring, The cross I am bearing, I love Him for sharing, I do; don’t you?

I want Him to use me, I do; don’t you; For service to choose me, I do; don’t you?

I want Him to bless me, To own and confess me, Completely possess me, I do; don’t you?

Hymn- “I Do, Don’t You?” by E.O. Exill and M. Miller

Behold, I Am Doing a New Thing, Now it Will Spring Forth

It’s Blooming in the Desert!

After 5 years of devastating drought in southern California, the mountains and deserts of Death Valley are exploding with beautiful blooms and color!

Thus says ADONAI…

“Here I am, doing a new thing; Now it is springing up!”

“I will make a way in the desert and rivers in the wasteland”

– Isaiah 43:19

In The Secret Place

“He that dwells  in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.

Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness; nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

For He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.

With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”

Psalm 91

Turbulence

Image result for airplane

A few days ago, a friend of mine encouraged me with these words…

She said, “When a pilot is flying and sees turbulence ahead, he approaches it head on. He does not go around it, over it, or under it; he goes right through it. The pilot can’t see beyond the limited view of his cockpit, so he must rely totally on the instrument panel for guidance. He goes right through the turbulence, difficult as it may be, and presses through until he reaches the beautiful clear sky on the other side.”

This life, as we know, can bring us to turbulent times that cannot be avoided. We’d rather go around them, but we must press through. As we rely on and put our complete trust in the LORD, even when it gets rocky, He will lead us through to the beautiful clear skies on the other side.

Shielded by Favor

“Let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice:

Let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them:

Let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt thou surround him

As with a shield.”

Psalm 5:11-12

Reaches To The Heavens

Image result for ocean and sky

Your love, oh Lord
Reaches to the heavens
And Your faithfulness
Stretches to the skies

And Your righteousness
Is like the mighty mountains
Your justice flows
Like the ocean’s tide

And I will lift my voice
To worship You, my King
And I will find my strength
In the shadow of Your wings

Your Love, oh Lord
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness
Stretches to the skies

-Third Day

 

New Morning, New Mercies

“This I recall to my mind, therefore I have 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

One Day

Image result for in like a lion out like a lamb

It’s said that the month of ¬†March comes¬†“in like a lion” and goes¬†“out like a lamb,”

This picture reminds me of God’s wonderful promise that one day,

In the beauty and peace of a new heaven and a new earth,

“The lion will lie down with the lamb.

Isaiah 11:6‚ô•

Love That Will Not Let Go

Image result for rainbow sun ocean

O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O Joy that seeks me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

O light that follows all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

You Are God Alone

You are not a god
Created by human hands
You are not a god
Dependent on any mortal man
You are not a god
In need of anything we can give
You are God alone, that’s just the way it is
From before time began
You were on Your throne
And right now
In the good times and the bad
You are God alone
You’re the only God
Whose power none can contend
You’re the only God
Whose Name will never end
You’re the only God
Who’s worthy of all we can give
You are God alone
And that’s just the way it is
Phillips, Craig, and Dean

Strength for Today

¬†“Don’t be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow shall be anxious for itself” Matthew 6:34

“Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, it only empties today of its strength.”

Charles Spurgeon

Just Float

“When you sense that your dark night is one of pregnancy and oceanic return,

You could react accordingly and be still.

Watch and wonder.

Take the human embryo as your model.

Assume the fetal position, emotionally and intellectually.

Be silent.

Float in your darkness, as if it were the waters of the womb,

And give up trying to fight your way out¬†or make sense of it.‚ÄĚ

Thomas Moore

The Living God

“…He¬†is¬†the living God, … steadfast for ever, … His kingdom¬†¬†shall never be destroyed, …His dominion¬†shall be even¬†unto the end.

He delivers and rescues, and¬†He works signs and wonders in heaven and in earth.”

Daniel 6:26-27

Keep on Keeping on

We’ve  all had times, when the going gets tough
The smooth ride suddenly, feels bumpy and rough
The good times are gone, it’s all rather gruff
You let out a sigh and exclaim ‚Äď ‚ÄúI‚Äôve had enough‚ÄĚ

We are all entitled at times, to gripe and to moan
What’s happened to my life, you say with a groan?
My backpack seems weighed down, by a big heavy stone
How do I move away, from this miserable zone?

When a curved ball hits you, and you feel all alone
Remember the good days, when the sun always shone
Go forward in faith, that you’ve already won
Hold to the course, and keep on keeping on

Michael Sage

No Worries Mate!

As they say in Australia,¬†“No worries Mate!”¬†and here’s the Bible version…

“Be anxious for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. ¬†And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:6

Two Beautiful Violins

128

Our youngest daughter began taking violin lessons at the age of three. She is now 12 years old and I’m happy to say that she has had the same sweet teacher all of these years! ¬†When she first began, she was too small for the smallest violin. so her teacher made a small “violin” for her from a stuffed margarine box, wrapped in paper from a brown paper bag and attached to a yellow plastic ruler, (I still have it to this day!). By the time she was four we were able to fit her for the smallest violin and it was adorable!

We started off renting and continued to do so for each stage of violin until she was ready for a full-sized one. After renting for all those years, nearly ten years, we were told that a percentage of our rental fee would one day apply towards the purchase of a full-sized violin. Well, when this time finally arrived we were disappointed to find out that, long story short , all of the money we had contributed, would only be a percentage of our payment on a very low quality instrument, for which we were expected to pay a very unreasonable amount of money ON TOP OF WHAT WE HAD ALREADY PAID ALL THOSE YEARS!!!!!

We had been duped… Or had we?

I spoke with our daughter’s teacher and she told us that one of her adult students was selling a very nice violin in great condition, and asked if we would be interested. “YES!!” I replied, and we were able to purchase a beautiful quality violin for a great price! It was a real blessing…. But that’s not all.

A few months later, the teacher told me that the lady who sold us the violin has gotten to know our daughter, in passing as they met between lessons, and she would love for her to have another violin as a gift. It would be a spare for her and it wouldn’t cost us a thing! This kind lady just wanted our daughter to have it.

So you see, what would have turned out to be a loss for us, actually turned out to be a blessing. We hadn’t lost a thing, because now, by God’s blessing, and the extraordinary kindness of this lady, our daughter has two beautiful violins!!¬†‚ô•

Hope

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

Emily Dickinson

I’m Sorry!

“Confess¬†your¬†faults one to another,and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

      James 5:16

Comfort Food

During the most painful and trying times of my life, I discovered that reading God’s Word gave me the deepest peace and greatest comfort. I often say that during those times, I read my Bible so much,( morning, noon and night), that I actually “ate” God’s Word. ¬†I really delved deeply into it, and read as if my life depended on it, because I believed it did… I “ate” God’s Word and ¬†was comforted… God bless you.

“For this is what the¬†Lord¬†says:…As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you…”‚ô•

Isaiah 66: 12-13

From the Beginning

“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knows right well.

My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God!

How great is the sum of them!”

Psalm 139:13-17

Marvelous Light

“But 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
