As we face the peak of hurricane season and, as well, with many of us – MYSELF INCLUDED-  in the path of Florence right now – A LEVEL 4 AND SOON TO BE 5 -, let’s pray  for protection for all!

Is it just the breeze

Or the brush of angel’s wings

Which refresh my soul

And bring me such peace?

Feel Desperate?

Ephesians 6:10-20
King James Version (KJV)

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Did You See ’em?

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

A Child’s Trusting Heart

March 21, 2013

The other day, at my part-time job, I was in a great deal of pain.  My job is very physical and I was working hard at smiling and reflecting Him but the pain threatened to bring tears.  I wrestled with this and was washing the floor by the drink station at work.  adjacent to this area is the door to the playground.  I suddenly realized a small boy of perhaps three years of age was outside, but not playing.  Instead, he was watching me mop the floor.  He opened the door and peering at the mop, asked “what are doing?” I responded “washing the floor.”  Keeping it simple, I wondered what he’d say next.  He then asked me why and I explained that someone had an “oops” and spilled something.  He came into the restaurant having lost sight of his mama.  He suddenly looked scared.  I saw her behind me ordering their lunch and pointed to her.  I then warned him to walk carefully as the floor might be a little slippery.  He stood very still then walked in a rather amusing way.  It was like a movie in slow motion.  lol  I saw the look of fear on his face, and said “do you want to hold my hand?”  He looked relieved and took it.  He reached his mom, reassured, he turned back to return to the playground.  This time he walked right up to me and extended his hand, knowing I’d take hold and walk him safely to the door.  He smiled and ran to the colorful slide.

I never did learn the small boy’s name.  I did, though, learn much from him.  Trust replaces fear with joy.  It really is that simple.

Use Protection!

March 22, 2012

Nobody ever said being a follower of Christ and living the life He desires us to live would be easy.  Afterall, look at the way He was received during His 33 years in human form.

That being said, we are provided with all the help we need to do as He leads us.  He promised to never leave us.  We simply need to BE His, to BE focused on Him and to BE at peace.  He gives us all we need including His armor, so why do we look at the evil coming at us and not use what He has given us? 

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Ephesians 6:10-11 KJV

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.Psalm 5:10-12

We are challenged, as followers of Christ, but He is always with us and we will always find our needs met.  We are covered with His protection and wrapped in His loving embrace.  He will never abandon us nor will we face more than we can bear. 

I am dealing a few challenges just now and yet I know He has me covered.  One of the challenges is finding  a new computer at a time when provision does not seem to be appropriate for doing so, yet a friend had a very old one which I can use for some of my work while I discern the next step which the Lord will direct me toward.  It, like me, needed protection and so I took care of that just as the Lord takes c are of me. 

Here is a picture of the covering I made to protect the wee notebook computer and it is laying on a quilt I am currently finishing.
