Our Soul is Special

May our Soul be Gentle

Galatians: Chapter 5 v 16.

So I say, live by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

Dear God help us today not to gratify those desires of the flesh that are not right by you. We do need your help God, we cannot do any thing good by ourselves without You and Jesus, by the help of your Holy Spirit. Amen.

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’

Let us be Gentle as a Dove.
This is one of my Oil Paintings.

So where are we at today then? What desire of the flesh are we thinking of today to do that we should not do? Are we going to argue with our friends and neighbours, gorge ourselves with unhealthy food, try to steal from the Supermarkets, or take money that we are not entitled to. There seems to be a lot of unholy desires of the flesh including coveting our friends husband or wives, getting drunk and disorderly, taking people to court for no good reason to do so except to satisfy our own thinking that we are right and they are wrong.

Today let our desire be to please God our Heavenly Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.

Maybe we can do something nice for someone (God would be pleased about that) what can we do then for them? One good thing do do is to pray for whoever comes to mind or whoever we meet during the daytime. No need to stand and pray so that they can see, it is best to pray privately in our own Prayer time with The Holy Spirit.

I Pray you have a lovely day * today *

May God our Father in Heaven Bless you and your family wherever you are

Love each other as Brothers

In the Bible it does say to love each other as Brothers – that does mean I believe as Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews:Chapter 13 verse 3
Keep on loving each other as brothers.

*

Today let us keep that commandment of God to love our Brothers as ourselves. How much more peaceful our day will be when we have no malice or hate in our hearts toward our Brothers and Sisters, just the love of The Lord toward them.

The above was taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ Well – what do you think about loving others as Brothers and Sisters even those that are not very good towards you? I think it is good to pray and ask our Heavenly Father to help us to be nice to them.

Maybe you are my Brother or Sister in Christ.

Do you know that Jesus is our Brother, If we are a Christian we are part of Gods family, so if we are Brothers and Sisters in Christ that means that yes, we can all Jesus our Brother. That really is an awesome thought don’t you think?

Let us look after our Brothers & Sisters

Here is a link you may like to see of the Book that was written for my Family: https://www.amazon.com.au/Jessies-Story-Jessie-Larman/dp/0987207555

I Pray that you have a lovely day and can give a thought to your Brothers and Sisters whether they are Christians or not. How lovely to think of those that have gone before us to Heaven and think about them sometimes with love in our hearts for having known them as part of our family.

May God our Heavenly Father Bless us today as we walk with Jesus and The Holy Spirit.

Do you really know Jesus?

Jesus as the Good Shepherd. This is one of my Paintings.

1 Corinthians Chapter 8 verse 6.

There is but one Lord,

Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

The above is of course taken from the Holy Bible. Just imagine that everything that has been made has been made by God our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ His Son. So we did not evolve from anything, we are made in the image of the man Jesus. He did not evolve from an Ape or anything else, he was born as a baby and grew into an adult man. Each evolves after it’s own kind. Just think an Oak tree cannot from it’s seed turn into an Apple tree. Even as man is born from the first man and woman that God made on this earth. So there we are (how about that then)?

Here is one animal (a Kangaroo) specially made for our harsh climate here,
that I decided to paint.

I hope you have a lovely day in the knowledge that you and I are made in the image of God who loves us just as we are. Know that we did not evolve from some odd source and let us be glad.

Shall we walk in Love?

Shall we walk in Love with our Family and Pets?

2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6

And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.

Please would you help me to walk in your Love today Lord! Amen.

Well it would be nice if we could do just that and walk in Peace and Love with our Family and Friends one day at a time.

Here is a Poem taken from the Book of ‘Verses’ by J. M. R. Larman

God’s Love

Can it be Lord, that you love me, as I sit and wonder about Eternity?

One day I should be there with Jesus my Lord.

Who, I know by your Angels God  –  is truly adored.

Almighty God, Ruler of the Universe, how can it be that you think of me?

Small and insignificant that’s who I am.

Yes, you sent your Son Jesus to rescue even me.

It is beyond my comprehension to consider these things.

So I shall sit in Your presence and pray to believe in your unconditional love.

Love full of peace. Love without Measure.

Poured down upon us, as we sit, stand or kneel,

in wonder and praise at your Glorious Presence

in Eternity.

I Pray that you have a Lovely Day Today walking in the Love of The Jesus and in Fellowship with The Holy Spirit *

Walk in Love

What a beautiful Wild Looking Sunset

2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6

And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.

***

Yes you are a God of Love and to love you means just what the above verse says – that we walk in obedience to your ways. We can only do that when we have invited Jesus into our lives and we live in your Kingdom on this earth. Praise you Heavenly Father that you enable us to walk in obedience today.

We can walk in love with our family. What better love than to walk in Gods ways with our Love ones, today and always.

It may seem odd to think that to walk in Love with the Lord is to walk in Obedience to Him. The only way really that we can do that is to read our Holy Bible to see how! It is good to read part of the Bible each day – part of the New Testament of course but not to neglect reading part of the old Testament. Just a small bit each day is better than not at all. You could of course read one of the Psalms sometimes for something different to read. It is always special to find a quiet time during the day to sit and read even a few verses of a Psalm.  

I hope you have a lovely day trying to walk in Love with your family and friends so that you know that you are walking in Obedience with God – because that shows that you Love Him our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and The Holy Spirit. (The Holy Spirit will help us to be obedient if we ask Him to)

Good Health

Here is some Good News for Today.

John: Chapter 9 verses 1 – 3 

And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man which was blind from his birth. His disciples asked Him, saying Master, who did sin, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents; but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

If we think about this, surely we can praise God for the things that He allows to go wrong in our bodies so that we can come to know Jesus through the healing He has received for us on the cross and be glad that Jesus is our healer. We need to come to know God our Father more and more each day, He wants us to give him praise and thanks for healing us to know that He is God and He is in control of our lives, that he loves us and wants us to be made whole. We do need to pray and ask, then to receive our healing and thank Him for it.

Well we know that we can’t talk to God on the mobile or landline phone but we do have a Hot Line to God and that is the Prayer Line. We can  use this Prayer Line day and night. i.e. Twenty Four hours a day as God our Heavenly Father is always available when we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. If you have any sort of problem or aches and pains please remember to use the Prayer Line right where you are, you do not have to sit in Church to specially Pray you can sit in your own lounge room or outside or wherever you may be – on the bus, in the train, on the plane – in the town or the country side. Remember it is not compulsory to kneel and pray as that is not always convenient, also to pray out loud or in your heart is O.K. as our Father in Heaven will still hear your prayers if they are relevant.

Are we Obedient?

The Angel of The LORD.

Matthew: Chapter 1 verse 18.

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph but before they came together, she was found to be with child through The Holy spirit.

***

Mary must have been a beautiful young woman spiritually to be so obedient to God saying yes to what He asked of her. How many of us can truly say that we are obedient to submit ourselves to the ways of The LORD? Dear LORD God I pray today that I may be more obedient to your voice and not to my own wants. In being obedient to you I know that you will be blessing me even more than I can ever imagine. Thank you for Mary the Mother of my Saviour – Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

I Pray that God will Bless us Today as we try to be more Obedient to Him – Our Father in Heaven, Jesus Christ His Son and to the Holy Spirit.

I hope you have a lovely Day today.

Christmas is a Special Time of the Year so we can Celebrate the Birth of Jesus.

The Secret Place

Psalm 139 verse 15

My frame was not hidden from you

when I was made in the secret place.

*

God made us specially in that secret place,

we must be very precious to Him.

Today let us ask if there is anything special

that He would like us to do for Him

instead of asking for something for ourselves.

He must be so pleased when the creatures that He has made

show respect  and love for Him and His Kingdom.

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the cup’

Remember that Jesus was made in that Secret Place in His Mother Mary’s womb, when the Holy Spirit came upon her.

We also were made in our Mothers womb by our earthly Fathers.  However God our Heavenly Father could see us and has been with us from the beginning of our conception, it is He that has made us, hoping I am sure that He would like us to accept Him to be our own Heavenly Father.

When we do that then we become a Christian and are very precious to Him.

So what can we do to show Him that we are really pleased to  belong to The Kingdom of God.

Let us try to walk in Righteous and Love towards each other, to be more like Jesus who had compassion on all who came to Him.

We can walk in the Secret Place each day with the Love of God and Fellowship with The Holy Spirit who is our Comforter and Guide.  He lives in us and walks with us each day of our lives in that Secret Place in our Hearts.

So what can we do for Jesus today?

We could ask God to Bless all who come before us today – that would be one nice thing that we could do. 

* May God Bless You Today as you Walk and Talk with Him

through the Holy Spirit of Jesus *  Amen.

Jerusalem is Special

This is a photo of Morning Glory in my Garden.

I reminds me of Trumpets.

Psalm 122 verse 6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

“May those who love You be secure”

***

Let us not forget to pray for Jerusalem.

The Holy City, where Jesus will be coming back to Zion His Holy Hill.

As we pray, we can feel secure in the love of God our Father and Jesus His Son.

So pray today for the peace of Jerusalem, be glad that God is in control of everything.

From Book. “Drink from the Cup”

I think the above Psalm is a reminder for us to pray for Jerusalem – God’s Special City.  Let us pray for His Peace to be there day after day for those that live and work there.  We can pray that any hostility begins to cease and everyone can begin to live peaceably in Israel and Palestine.  So that the everyday people can be at peace in their hearts.

We can also Pray for the place that we are living in at the moment be it a Town, a City, a Village or a Provence somewhere. 

It is good to remember what the Bible say’s ‘The Prayers of a righteous man availeth much’ really that means that the prayers we utter should come from our heart, not just idle words, not prayers that we speak out to impress anyone but prayers that we really mean if we want God to answer them.

* I Pray that you have a lovely day today,

with the Peace of The Lord in your heart

whatever the circumstances you find yourself in *

Doing Good !

This is one of my “Oil Paintings”

3 John: verse 11

Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good.

Anyone who does what is good is from God.

Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.

Today let us not grow weary of doing good!  That is a word The Lord gave me when I got a bit fed up one day and thought – what is the good of trying to help whoever it was.  Then the quiet voice of The Holy Spirit said “Jessie never weary of doing good”  so I pass that on to you today, please don’t grow tired of doing good.  God is Good, He is Love, He is all goodness. He is the LORD!

Well the thing is – what can we do today that will be good?  One of the best things of course is to Pray.  But that is not what I mean, what I mean is what can we do to help someone, there are so many people that need help in the world.  However our family should come first in all things.

Sometimes they make us cross by doing things that we would prefer they don’t do, especially any children that we are looking after.  They can be a real trial at times.  We do have to look after them though and not get fed up seeing to them.  One other thing is to be good to our Parents and Grandparents, all older people should be able to find that we have time to talk to them.  Some are very lonely and we can do some good today even just to say ‘Hello’ to them.

Remember you may be the only person that speaks to them today, so why not smile and say ‘Hello’ – no need to stand and talk if you are not sure what to say but just a greeting for them to hear will be a blessing that you can give.

A good thing to do is to say ‘God Bless you, have a good day’ to someone while out shopping or travelling.

So today I would like to say to you –

*’God Bless You, have a really lovely Day Today’*
