Blessed are those . . .

who may not see but believe!

Got to share this quote because the truth in it must be shared.

I’ve seen and met angels wearing the disguise

of ordinary people living ordinary lives

– Tracy Chapman –

Speaking plainly, I must say that if you’ve not seen angels, you are just now looking closely enough.  The Lord sends them to each of us all the time.  Trust and believe.  You are loved.

For he will
command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

Psalm 91:10-12

AN UNEXPECTED GIFT!

February 11, 2019

When The Storm Passes . . .

The threat of a storm lasted long, but now that the storm is over it seems as though it was quite brief.  How often do we find this to be true?  After it has gone, the beauty in its wake seems brighter than ever before  . . .

Here are some photographs taken after other storms have gone.  It seems there is a message in their beauty.

 

29 He stilled the storm to a whisper;
   the waves of the sea[a] were hushed.    – Psalm 107:29


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!

So Eli told Samuel, “Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say,

‘Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.'”

1 Samuel 3:9

 


Sitting At Your Feet

August 4, 2018

My thoughts just drifted back to my childhood and to how much I loved sitting on the floor at Nana’s feet, feeling unconditional love and listening to her stories, memories, advice, and so much more.  Time was meaningless as I knew such love and acceptance and encouragement and lost all sense of time.

How fitting to immediately find this before me! “Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”  – Jeremiah 33:2-3

 

Can I have an

AMEN?

 

 

 

 


HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT!

August 1, 2018

You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word.

Psalm 119:114 ESV

 

“My hiding place” initially seemed like a joke.  Sure, before I truly knew the Lord, my life was one big hiding place.  Thinking about it now, my new life as a reborn creature reveals so much more yet my hiding place and shield are REAL and always there but seen by me while mystifying others.  For example,  Let’s  look at Daniel in the lion’s den.  Pretty vulnerable, no?  But the story didn’t end there, did it!  The lions walked on still hungry.

Then there’s David . . . young and small and left to defeat Goliath, well – expected to lose  the battle against the giant warrior.  But who was it that walked away unscathed?  The psalmist sure got it right! My hope is in Him – my Lord and my God.

 

WHERE HE LEADS, I WILL FOLLOW!
