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.

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.

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 *

May God Bless you Today and Always.
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’
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

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.

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’*
