John: Chapter 16 verse 31
……… Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.
As Christians we know that God our Father is with us. When Jesus went back to Heaven He sent His Holy Spirit to be with us – to teach, comfort and also to fellowship with us. Where The Holy Spirit is, there also are The Father and The Son. Just think how blessed we are – we are never alone!
(You may like to check out what the Word says in your Bible of the Scripture above)
Well now – how about that? What do you think about being alone, do you think sometimes that you really are alone? Well even if we think that, sometimes we should remember that God our Heavenly Father can see us just where we are. If we are feeling lonely, sad, miserable and on our own, maybe we need to remember what the above verse says, whether we believe it or not as Christians The Holy Spirit of Jesus is always with us as He promised when He went back to Heaven.
So let us not be downcast or feel too lonely today, put on a happy face, dance and sing, talk to the dog (or cat) or whatever your pet maybe – if you have one. If not maybe put on some Christian music – the devil does not like that – because he has to flee away from you and from your loneliness… make a nice Cup of drink, have something to eat – to cheer you up.
A good idea is to phone a friend if you are really feeling very lonely, just to talk for a while makes a lot of difference to yourself and maybe also to the friend you are phoning. It is good to think of others in your circle of family and friends who maybe so pleased to hear your voice on the phone.
Hopefully your loneliness will just disappear, then you can Praise The Lord for His love toward you and begin to thank Him for all the Blessings He has given and will be giving you. (That goes for me as well) !
I hope you have a lovely day today – you may like to check out this Link for ‘Drink from the Cup’ book that the above Bible reading came from.
John: Chapter 14 verse 6
“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.
Taken from ‘Drink from the Cup’ book, by J.M.R.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’?

* I Pray that you have a lovely day today *
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.
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.
I Pray that God will Bless You and your family and friends today with the Love of our Lord Jesus. Amen.
Here is one that you may not have seen just click on the Link Below to see what it is about.
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. !!!
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 *
