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.

I Pray that God will Bless You and your family and friends today with the Love of our Lord Jesus. Amen.

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.

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 *

You may like to look at this Link to see some of the things that our God has done:

Or:  http://basketsofgodsflowers.com

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 *
