What about Angels?

Angels are ministering Spirits.

Hebrews: Chapter 1 verse 14

Are not all Angels ministering Spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

***

Let us thank God our Heavenly Father for allowing His Angels to care for us, that they minister to us in ways we cannot see but they are there serving and helping us whenever the need arises. Thank you God.

This a book of Daily Readings to use each Year.

Hear is a Special Verse that I like – so I thought you may like to read it.

Are You a Ripple on a Pond. Are you a Ripple on a Pond? Do you see what I see? Can you pray for those who cannot pray? Will you pray for those who cannot see? Are you a Ripple on a Pond? Like a pebble thrown into the middle, our prayers can go out and around in a never ending and expanding circle. Are you a ripple on a pond?

Do you see beyond the horizon? Will your words or works reach out in that never ending circle of prayer? I pray I am a Ripple on a Pond. My prayers going forth throughout the world, for those lost souls to be gathered in and for everyone of them to be cleansed from sin.

Do try to be a Ripple, even starting with a trickle, of prayer and praise. Like a pebble creating waves on a Pond, may your Prayers go forward even beyond. So are you a Ripple on a Pond? With prayers, reach far beyond all that you see. Look and use your spiritual eyes for Jesus.

Do something for Him that really, really pleases.

I Pray you have a lovely Day today and that some of your Prayers may be answered today and in the future as you Pray through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen.

It is Good to Pray

Morning Glory in the photo above looks beautiful – it was taken in my Garden. The above picture reminds me of trumpets…the flowers are very fragile, the petals very soft to touch. It is a vine (a creeper) and looks nice along a fence line. But can get very much out of hand if not kept in check.

Psalm 116 verse 1

I love The LORD, for He heard my voice;

He heard my cry for mercy.

***

What would my life be without you LORD, you are my life, you did hear my cry. I praise you LORD with all my heart and soul and all that is within me. Amen.

We could send up a Prayer today.

It is good to start the day off with a prayer – because sometimes we seem to get so busy that we either forget or don’t get time to stop for a few minutes and think about things that we should pray for. What or who should we pray for then?

Well let us see – we need to pray for our own families so that our Heavenly Father would be kind enough to bless them. We can’t expect Him to do that unless we actually ask Him to. Also there are many things and people in this world that need help for healing, finance, the list goes on. So there is not a shortage of things to pray about.

One good thing to pray about is for the Town or City that we live in and the people who govern them. We cannot all be missionaries and to go to the underdeveloped countries to help – but in our own prayer time we can at least pray and ask God to Bless them.

My latest book is a Year book of small Daily readings from the Bible with a comment about the reading and can be useful especially for our own private time to read just a small piece from the Bible each day. Maybe while we have a sit down with a Cuppa ?

Here is the Link for the book….’Drink from the Cup’

* I pray that you have a lovely day today *

God Bless You with the Love of The Lord Jesus and fellowship with The Holy Spirit today and always. Amen.

Let us Talk to Each Other *

Let us be glad that we can talk to others with the Love of The Lord.

3 John verse 14

I hope to see you soon and we will talk face to face.

***

John said the above while writing to his friends and I was just thinking it would be lovely to talk face to face with you. It is lovely when we as Christians can talk to each other about the love of Jesus isn’t it? As I can’t see you today to talk to I would like to say that I hope you have a lovely day. God Bless you.

As many people are self isolating due to the Covid 19 – Corona Virus…… I thought this would be a good time to think – that yes, it would be nice to talk to you face to face. However may people are now talking on their iPads re: video talks….that is marvellous to do if possible.

For many people in isolation it is not possible if they do not have access to the internet or they do not have iPads but it is still a good idea to keep in touch with love ones over the phone. That is one way that the virus cannot be spread and also to help stop the loneliness that some people feel when they are not allowed to go out and socialize or for many elderly not able to go shopping each day.

Let us remember to pray for each other and maybe think about having a phone call to a family member who we have not seen for a while just to ask if they are o.k. and coping alright at this awful Pandemic time .

I Pray that The Lord will Bless our Families.

Here is a Link to one of my Books:

I Pray that you keep well and free from the Covid 19 Corona Virus.

*Have a really nice Day Today.*

***

It is good to pray for Family and Friends.

This Oil Painting may remind you of a Farm somewhere, how nice to pray for the people who are farming especially here in Australia trying to recover from the Bush Fires, Drought and Floods – also lately the Cyclonic Winds and Sandstorm that was over our State of W.A.

2 Thessalonians: Chapter 1 verse 11

With this in mind,

we constantly pray for you,

that our God may count you worthy of His calling

and that by His power He may fulfill every good purpose

of yours and every act prompted by your faith.

***

I pray today that you will feel worthy to be called by God and will know what He wants you to do for Him today. As you walk in your faith you will see things being fulled that you have been asking and seeking God for. Know that God sees you as worthy, because He has called you and you will know this if you have truly accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour.

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

Bees drink from the Cup of Nectar
May we use our hands and Pray today to bless someone.

Well maybe today we can pray for whoever The Lord brings before us in the Spirit or in the Flesh. People who come into our lives each day are deserving of our prayers and also maybe our help. Each day is a New Day to start afresh to do something nice for people. Maybe it could be just a kind word to our friends and family. Especially to the children who are in our lives and those who are in great need of their parents love. We can pray that their needs be met and they are fed and watered throughout the world today……………..

If we are unable to go out we can keep in touch with others by phone, or a card or letter, maybe on the internet is quite appropriate in this day and age. Our God – our Heavenly Father has given each of us something to do, or someone to pray for: We are all different but we are one in The Lord. Jesus loves us just as we are yes – that is you and me and supplies all our needs. What more could we ask?

May God Our Heavenly Father Bless You Today and grant you all your needs. (remember not your wants but your needs)

That gives us food for thought!

*Have a Lovely Day*

Do we have Patience Today?

Here we have a Painting of the Lyons River N.W. Australia.
This is a good illustration of having patience while waiting for the River to Flow.
*

Psalm 40 verse 1

I waited patiently for The LORD;

He turned to me and heard my cry.

*

I pray LORD that I may always wait for you and that you will hear my cry,

wherever I may be at any time here on this earth.

I pray that The LORD hears your cry today

for what ever your needs may be.

Also that you may have peace in your heart today. Amen.

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’

Yes we do need to Pray.

Well we do need to have patience even to pray sometimes,
because time gets away from us and we think we will wait until a later time.

Then we find that the day has gone and we did not find that (later time) to pray.
If only we could start the day off with a prayer how much better our day may be.
It does take patience to let go of other things we would like to be doing
and to just sit and pray for a while.
Even five or ten minutes to start with if you are not used to sitting alone and having a quiet time instead of rushing about to get things done.
After all most things will not run away they will still be there waiting for us to do.
Unless of course there is something really urgent that needs to be done then we must get on and do it.
*

I like to think of this Painting that I painted as The Dove of Peace.

*

We do need peace in our hearts most times when we find the patience to sit and pray.

The Lord God gives us patience and peace when we are going through a difficult situation.

  But the thing is we do need to ask Him.

Also He will comfort us when we do cry out to Him.

Jesus taught us to pray His special Prayer ‘The Lords Prayer’

Which is best to pray if you are not sure how to pray because that

covers all that we need.

*May God Bless you today with His Love*

Choose to Love Others

Let us love others with the Love of The Lord Jesus

St. Luke: 6 verse 32

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?

Even sinners love those who love them!

*****

That’s true isn’t it!  But as Christians we are meant to love the unlovely, just as Jesus did – to help them, befriend them, most of all to show them the love of Jesus.  Even in our own families there are relatives that we feel we cannot be with for long, we have to overcome that feeling and remember God made them and we are not only to tolerate them but to love them.  It can be a bit of a problem that Scripture but remember we are to overcome and nothing is impossible with God.  So we had better ask Him for His grace to help us.  It’s amazing what happens when we ask His help.

*****

At this particular time where most of us have to stay indoors or isolated because of the Corona Virus the above reading is worth thinking about – because lots of families will be shut in together and will miss the freedom of going out to work or play.

It may be difficult to all get along together at close quarters for the 14 days that our Government wants us to do. 

But it is the best thing that we can do to help our family and friends also our work mates or colleagues.

So let us do it with a good grace remembering that it is not as bad as what Jesus had to endure for us.

I Pray that you all keep well and happy at this present time and will be able to help where needed if someone less fortunate than yourself needs help for shopping etc., if they are incapacitated or isolated with no family to help them.

May GOD BLESS YOU and keep you and your love ones safe.

A Special Way

Jesus is the Special Way.

John: Chapter 14 verse 6

Jesus answered,

“I am the way and the truth and the life.

No-one comes to The Father except through me.”

***

No other religion anywhere can go to God our Father in Heaven unless they accept Jesus Christ as Lord. We must invite Jesus into our hearts for our own spirit in us to be Born Again into the Kingdom of God. I praise The Lord that I have done that, what about yourself, remember today is a good day, if you have not already done so.

May we lead our family and friends in the Way the Truth and The Life! (Oil Painting by J. Larman)

As many of us know our God is the God of Love. So maybe today we can share the Love of God with all those who come before us. Just a smile will do or maybe say ‘hello’. There are many people who do not have anyone to talk to during the day so it is good if we can be pleasant towards them. If we can spare the time it is helpful to stand and listen to whoever we come in contact during each day.

Also the children need to eventually know the way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ, God’s only Son. Jesus say’s -let the little children to come to me. So as we talk to them let us give them a chance to talk to us. We cannot always say about Jesus but they will know that we care about them if we give them some of our time during the day.

If you are not sure about anything just think ‘What would Jesus do’?

If you know that Jesus is The Way the Truth and the Life it will be easy for you to use the Hot Line to God… our Heavenly Father…. Prayer of course is our Hot Line…..
Let the little children come to me. (Oil Painting by: J. Larman.)

Shall we Gossip Today?

This is an ‘Oil Painting’ that I painted.
Birds are Beautiful and I am quite sure that they do not know what it means to Gossip! They seem to talk to each other in their own Bird Language.
***

Here is a quote from the Holy Bible:

Proverbs: 11 v 13

A gossip betrays a confidence but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.

***

We know that only with the help of Jesus can we truly keep a secret. Please help us Lord not to gossip, curb our tongue please and let your Holy Spirit speak through even my tongue today. Amen.

Taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.

My Drawing of the Dove of Peace.

Let us be like the Dove of Peace when we talk to our friends and neighbours to give them good news and try not to gossip about our friends today. Let us show kindness to others by listening to them and allow them to feel sure that we can keep their secrets if that is what they would like us to do.

As we talk to others we should feel secure that they in turn will not go about telling people of our problems however big or small they may be. It is good to have a special friend who we can confide in, to laugh with, to cry with and be comfortable with to share our special needs with.

It is especially good if the friend who we can confide in is a Christian, then we can ask them to pray with us asking the Holy Spirit to help us to pray for any special needs that we have at time. Also knowing that between us our prayers may be confidential and hopefully effective if we are truly praying them from our heart.

So there we are – let us try our best not to Gossip today but to enjoy the company of our friends and family talking about many other interesting things, walking in the love of Jesus asking him to put a curb on our tongue to talk and walk in a Christian way.

Here is a lovely Display of Flowers for you Today.

What are Scoffers?

My Photo of some lovely Daisy Flowers with a Bee after the Nectar

Jude: Verse 18

They said to you,

“In the last times there will be scoffers

who will follow their own ungodly desires”

***

Please help me today God not to follow my own ungodly desires. May your Holy Spirit guide me into all righteousness and truth. Amen.

‘Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’

***

Well what does it mean to be a Scoffer, what does it really mean in our lives today. In the Dictionary it says “to speak about something in a scornfully derisive way”

So that means if we ridicule a person or a thing we are being a Scoffer, that does not sound like a very nice thing to do, especially about our family members. Or if we ridicule our children or old people, people with disabilities i.e. deformities, deafness, failing eye sight, poor academic schooling.

As a Christian we can be free from being a Scoffer if we choose to not be one, therefore we need not follow our ungodly desires. It is difficult I know not to follow an unholy desire but we do need to think about these things. We need to realize that in Christ Jesus we have been set free if we choose to be.

So here is a Poem that I wrote because it is lovely to feel set free from awful worldly desires – even if it is only now and then that we can Pray this Poem as a Prayer to thank The Lord Jesus that He did come to set us FREE. !!!

Let us feel FREE and soar like the Eagle into the Heavenly Realms in our Prayer time with The Lord.

I am Free

I am free, Praise The Lord I am Free.

How am I free, free to Laugh.

Free to Sing, free to Walk

Free to run, free to Pray,

Free to talk, free to eat

Free to drink, free to play

I am free, free – Free.

Yes Free to feel the Breeze on my face.

Free to feel the Sand on the Beach,

Free to Swim in the Ocean,

Free to appreciate the Sky

The Beautiful Sunsets.

Free to watch the Lightening in the Thunderstorms,

Free to hear the Thunder.

Yes I am Free to walk with Jesus – with God my Father in Heaven

Free to appreciate the Holy Spirit in my life

Free to receive all my Blessings

From our Heavenly Father.

Yes I am Free because

Jesus is my Lord and Saviour. Amen.

***

* I am Free to Praise The Lord *

Speak Up for Others

This is one of my Oil Paintings. We do need to pray for the Children of this World.

Proverbs: Chapter 31 verse 8

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute”

We do need to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, especially the little children, the babies, the unborn that people want to abort. Speak up for those who cannot speak, pray for them , don’t let the devil have them. Pray for those in the world who are destitute, that they may come to know Jesus today.

Taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’

Each of us has a Guardian Angel

Well we do not just have to Pray for the Children of this world but as Proverbs: 31 v 8 says – we should speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. I think that means for some of our family members, also people who are incapacitated, those who need help in their everyday living. Young people, old people, those who are too ill to talk or to ask for help.

Let us be the ones to Speak up for some of those that we know of and others we do not know but have heard of in some of the War Torn Counties in this World. If we cannot Speak out for any of those who are destitute and need of help, let us Pray for The Lord Jesus to raise up someone who can.

Let Us Pray: Please Lord Jesus Help those who cannot help themselves. Amen.

* I hope you have a lovely day today *
