Listen ?

This is a Painting that I did, thought it would be a change to put on here for no special reason except you may like to see it.

Proverbs Chapter 4 verse 1

Listen, my sons,

to a father’s instruction;

pay attention

and

gain understanding.

*****

Yes plese Heavenly Father, help me to listen to your instruction, so that I can receive more understanding today.

The above is from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.

Well there we are….how well do we LISTEN…..to our earthly fathers instruction…..not always very well do we because then off we go to do our own thing.  Not always to our advantage might I say.!

So this makes me think – how well do we LISTEN to God our Heavenly Father.

It is hard to LISTEN to God with so much going on in our lives.  However if we can find a time each day to sit and read part of our Bible then is the time we can sit quietly and LISTEN when we have prayed for something or someone special.  We may not get the answer we want but be assured that if you are a Christian then God has heard your prayers.  So then we wait for His will to be done in the situation that we are praying for.

God Bless you today as you try to LISTEN to God our Heavenly Father.

A Gift of Love?

2GlowBookGlasses2

St. Luke Chapter 3 verse 11

John answered,

“The man with two tunics

should share with him who has none

and the one who has food

should do the same”

*****

Is there anyone today that you can  bless with a gift, it’s lovely to be able to share.  I don’t mean an expensive gift.  There may be someone near you who is unemployed, disabled, sick or in need of even a nice loaf of bread, biscuits, cake an item of clothing.  The main thing is when you share, it is a gift of love.  As Christians we can bring a lot of pleasure to those in need and it could be a chance to share the Gospel.

*****

Cup of Tea Blue

Just think a gift of love can be just offering a cup of tea to someone.  Or to invite them out for morning or afternoon tea especially to ask someone who you may know that is lonely.  Even a young mum with a child can be lonely for someone to share and talk with.  Other than that there could be an older person you sometimes say ‘Hello’ to while shopping who lives quite near to you.  You could extend the ‘Hello’ to stand still instead of walking on and just ask ‘how are you’ or words to that effect.

You may be the only person who speaks to them today – so what a gift of love it is to share, to let them know that you care enough even just to say a few words.  Before walking on just say ‘God Bless you’

Hot Line to God Colour Text

Yes we can even phone a friend to say ‘Hello’ if we have not seen them for a while and ask how they are.  Then before putting the phone down say ‘God Bless You’

Even this is an act of Love to find time to do that.

So I say

‘God Bless You Today’

I hope you have a lovely day.

Husband & Wife

Hippyistra in Vase

1 Corinthians:  Chapter 7 verses 2-3

But since there is so much immorality,

each man should have his own wife

and each woman her own husband.

 The husband should fulfil his maritial duty

to his wife

and likewise the wife to her husband,

the wife’s body does not belong to her alone

but also to her husband.

***

This is pretty awesome when you think about it and is quite profound, we really should take note and act in the way that we were made regarding husband and wife.

Well there is not much we can say about the above reading except that we need to be willing to obey God’s Word……I know that we can’t all have a Husband or Wife but for those that do it is a blessing to read and understand the meaning of the above.

God didn’t put that in the Bible just for something to say – He really meant it and what a blessing it is to be a Christian in the Kingdom of God here on earth.  To have someone to love and for them to love back in return.

I Pray that you have a lovely Day and for anyone that is not a Christian reading this all you have to do to become one is to ask Jesus to come into your life (your heart) tell Him you are sorry for all the wrong things you have done and really mean that you want Jesus in your life.……and guess what?   He will be there with you, with God the Father and the Holy Spirit (that is the Spirit of Jesus).

Just remember that we were all sinners

before we invited Jesus

into our lives to become Christians.

God Bless You Today with Love.

Let us have Joy

EagleFlying

Romans: Chapter 14 verse 17

For the Kingdom of God

is not a matter of eating and drinking

but of Righteousness,

Peace and Joy in

The Holy Spirit.

***

Today let us walk with The Holy Spirit of Jesus in that lovely Peace and Joy that only comes from 
The Kingdom of God.

As this is a new day today, let us choose to walk in Peace and Joy if we can with our families and friends.  When we get a New Day it is good to think what are we going to do with it?????????

We do really have a choice – sometimes we think we don’t have, if we are feeling ill or lonely or neglected – but we still can make a choice not to be a victim even in those circumstances.  We can try to find JOY in something during the day.  Even to cuddle the cat, pat the dog, read a book, sit in the sun or eat something nice.

Today is to be lived,

tomorrow – today, will  be gone.

Well what are you going to do today? It says in the Bible it is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness, peace and joy in The Holy Spirit.

If you are a Christian The Holy Spirit is with you and can help you to walk in JOY today – he does like you to ask Him though.

I pray you have a lovely day walking in the Love of Jesus.

Soar in the Heavenlies with Joy in your heart.
