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 *

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

Let’s do Something Nice Today

The Flowers above look beautiful. It is also beautiful when we do something nice for someone.

1 Samuel: Chapter 1 verse 18

She said, “may your servant find favour in your eyes” Then she went her way and ate something and her face was no longer downcast.

***

Today, let us too find favour in Our Father God’s eyes, let us think of something nice to do for Him today, then we too can celebrate with something good to eat and our face need not be downcast.

You may like to read the above Scripture in your Holy Bible. It is quite interesting.

The story is about Hannah the Mother of Samuel who was praying in her heart to God in the Temple. As her lips were moving they thought she was drunk as no words were coming out of her mouth.

It is good to remember that we do not always have to pray out loud for our Father in Heaven to hear what we are praying and hoping for in our hearts.

Maybe today we can do something nice for someone, then we need not feel downcast……(that’s if we were in the first place) But what ever we do – it should be done for the Lord. It could be just a kind word for someone, or a phone call to keep in touch. If we help someone in anyway at all that would be a blessing for them. So if Jesus is your Lord and Saviour – what a lovely thing to do something nice for Him today. One Special thing to do is to pray for someone and ask that God would kindly bless them. They do not need to know that you have prayed for them. God our Father in Heaven will hear the prayers of your heart just as He did with Hannah, Samuel’s Mother as it says so in The Bible.

Hear is a link to – Book of Prayers – this is a help for people who are not sure how or what to pray for and a reminder to some of us that there are other things and people that need our prayer. I hope it will be useful to many especially to new Christians if they cannot find the help they need.

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 *

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.

Doing Good !

Hands holding Bible

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’*

Contentment

ShepherdSheep2

This is an Oil Painting that I did of The Good Shepherd

Circle Blue Animation1

Philippians: Chapter 4 verse 11 

I am not saying this because I am in need,

for I have learned to be content

whatever the circumstances.

*

Today is the start of a new month, let us endeavor to be content if we can this month in what ever circumstances we find ourselves.  Let us rest in the knowledge and love of Jesus that He is with us everyday, comforting and guiding us by His Holy Spirit.

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

Circle Blue Animation1

The above Bible quote was spoken by St.Paul, so it would be good if we can follow his example and be content just where we are.  I know that we all have problems and hope for better things to come sometimes.  However that may take a while for our circumstances to change.  But while we are waiting for things to change in our lives it is a good idea to appreciate the things we have.

We can appreciate having a roof over our heads, food, shelter, water, especially if we are  blessed with a family, let us be content with having them in our lives.

Another thing that helps us to be content is if we have a Pet animal, we can be content that we are giving our Pet a good home, that can be a real blessing to our-self and of course to our beloved Pet.

When we can be content it is surprising what The Lord Jesus can do to encourage us with even more blessings that we ask for.

What about any talents that we have been given, are we using them to please God Our Father in Heaven?  Even in our everyday work we can be content in doing it to the best of our ability – then we will be content at the end of the day that we have done our best in what ever circumstance we have found our-self.

May God – Jesus – and The Holy Spirit help you to be Content today.

Children are Beautiful

The Little Children and Jesus

Jesus with Children

Oil Painting by Artist:  J.M.R. Larman

*

Mark Chapter 10 verses 13-16

People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them but the Disciples rebuked them.  When Jesus saw this, he was indignant.  He said to them, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it”.  And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

Taken from the TNIV Study Bible.

How do you feel about little children?

  Do you love them or think they are just a nuisance.  You may not have any yourself – but – just think they are all around us in this world.

How dare people abuse them.

Everyone who hurts a little child (apart from chastising them) will have to give account one day to God – Our Father in Heaven, who will judge them according to what they have done.

Oil Painting by J.M.R. Larman

Jesus may weep oceans of tears for all the little children that are not blessed with loving people to look after them. 

Babies when born are helpless and unable to look after themselves if left they will just die, they are not like some of the creatures that are born ready to feed and fend for themselves.

So we do need to realize that Children are precious, they can bring us much pleasure when we find time to care for them.  That also includes Teenagers – they are still our children and need our care and support.

Have a lovely Day and maybe share the Love of The Lord with a Little One today.

May God Bless You with His Peace and Love.

Proverbs: Chapter 11 verse 11 

Through the blessing of the upright

a city is exalted

but by the mouth of the wicked

it is destroyed.

*

Just think right where you are, you can  be a  blessing to the city or town that you live in.  In your own community you can be a blessing, by praying and being in the love of Jesus day by day.  We are not all called to go out to be a prominent person in our community but by prayer and supplication we as Christians can make a great difference in the  city around us.  Today let us pray for the place that we live in for peace to prevail and for the mouth of the wicked to be cleansed.

From the  Book: Drink from the Cup by J.M.R. Larman.

Key Blue

So in a special way we can have the Keys of the City in our hearts to pray for the place that we are living in.  It may not matter if it is a Great City or a Small Country Town.  Jesus will hear our prayers when we really pray for our place where with live to be Blessed.

No Prayer is wasted if it is prayed truly from our heart not just to pray idle words but words that we really mean what we are praying for.

Can we say Bless The Lord oh my Soul and enter into that place of Prayer for our City or Town.  Let us Pray that Peace will Prevail, Justice be done, Joy & Love to be Blessings for the people who live in and around us.  Let us ask our Father in Heaven to Bless the Children, the young ones, the teenagers, the adults, even our Pets, the animals in our City or Town.

Remember that the mouth of the wicked will want to destroy all the above, so we need to pray.   Also remember James 5 in verse 16…….. that the Fervent Prayer of a Righteous Man accomplishes much.

Thank God for His Grace

St.George's Anglican Church

This is a Pen and Ink Drawing of ‘St. George’s Church’ by J.Larman

John: Chapter 4 verse 22

Samaritans worship what you do not know;

we worship what we do know,

for salvation is from the Jews.

*

Jesus said the above and it is true, so we do need to pray for the Jew’s and thank God for His Grace that He receives us Gentiles into Salvation.  Let us be thankful today for the incredible love of Our Father in Heaven.

Snowflake blk

So the above gives us food for thought – as most people think it not necessary to pray for the Jews.  We must remember that a lot of them are not Christians, they do need our Prayers.  Yes the Jew’s are God’s chosen people but many have rejected Jesus and that is very sad as they do not recognize Him as their Saviour and Lord of Lords.

We are very fortunate that God our Heavenly Father accepts us Gentiles into Salvation when we acknowledge Jesus Christ His Son to be Lord of our lives and invite Him into our Hearts.  And what a Blessing that He allows His Holy Spirit to be with us – Praise The Lord.

So:  Let us submit ourselves afresh today to Our Father in Heaven.

Let us walk in the Love of Jesus

and

in Fellowship with The Holy Spirit. 

*

May God Bless us today.

Have a Lovely Day walking in the Love of The Lord.
