LAWS . . .Wondrous???

Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.Psalm 119:18 ESV

As a child, I often thought “Why is the teacher always picking on me?” At the time it seemed not only was I picked on, but a very high percentage of the time!  As an adult, I saw things differently. Rules and laws save and protect us and for certain keep us on the right path so that we will learn and accomplish what we very much need to.  As we mature in life and in relationship with our Heavenly Father, Teacher . . . it is espectially important!  We are created out of His amazing love for a blessed purpose which could result in our hurting ourselves and others if we do not obey!

Our Father God is waiting for us to seek forgiveness when we disobey and His sadness while waiting for us is due to His immeasurable love!  How incredible is it that once we repent, He eagerly holds us and leads us to the right path!!

 


Let Everything Praise the Lord

November 15, 2018

Poor sleep made me grumpy this morning. . . knowing better didn’t help.  Puppy kisses thawed me out some . . . temporarily.

Then this quote from Psalm found me and brought with it a definite deterging quality.  “Trouble and anguish have found me out, but your commandments are my delight.” Psalm 119:143 ESV

GRUMPY?  Not me!

Psalm 150 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens![a]
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!

Praise him with trumpet sound;
    praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
    praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals;
    praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

WHAT I LEARNED FROM SHEEP

November 13, 2018

It seems we ALWAYS seek to do

things we choose, in our own way.

But sheep are never left alone

to make up their own minds.

They seem so calm and rested

and do as the shepherd tells them to.

Love and care he offers

and they easily accept.

They are totally dependant on him.

Yet when God reacts this way to us,

we turn the other way.

I used to think sheep foolish creatures!

But, they aren’t the fools,

we are!

FOREVER LOVE

November 10, 2018

It always seems so difficult

to have lost the ones you love

even though we know that they

are pain free up above.

But oh the happy memories

that come back with a start!

For I know that they are nearest

When I look inside my heart.

LIFE CHANGING TRUTH!

“Remind yourself every day you get up

and everywhere you go,

‘I am in the presence of God.’”

HE IS NEVER FAR . . .

November 9, 2018

When love seems the farthest 

from my heart,

and my grasp,

that is when,

in truth

I am the most closely

wrapped in His arms!

My Father

November 6, 2018

My residence – so disappointing,

there was nothing I could do.

I was ready to give up

but then my Father spoke to me.

He started with the woodwork,

old ceilings to bad floors.

He renovated tattered walls

and then the windows had to go!

He worked hard day and night . . .

took up residence right there.

Instead of leaving in the night,

His love did me repair.

I learned  so very much from Him!

Soon everything was new!

I want to be so much like Him,

giving blessings in His name!
