Our Soul is Precious

This is a Painting of  a lovely peaceful Farm over looking the distant hills.

I pray that you find peace and love in God our Heavenly Father today.

Psalm 62 verse 1

My soul finds rest in God alone;

my salvation comes from Him.

*

When I sit and pray, do you know, my soul does find rest in God.

I pray that you find rest in God today.

We do know that our salvation comes from Him.

 God does love our souls to be at rest in Him,

whether we are at work,

play or in prayer.

 So today let us be at rest in God as we get on with our daily tasks etc.,

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

Well there we are then now we know what to do when we get stressed out !……yes, just sit for a while quietly and tell God our Heavenly Father what the matter is.  He can hear us you know, Jesus knows our thoughts and He sent The Holy Spirit to Comfort us .  However, unless we sit and tell God what is troubling us The Holy Spirit will not be able to comfort us.  We usually go on in our own sweet way thinking things will get better in a minute and are quite surprised that they don’t.  Well – what about stopping for a moment and telling God that we need help.

The Shortest Prayer that I know or can say when all seems to fail is:-………………Please Help me God………..

Be honest and say that you can’t do whatever you need to do on your own, tell Him the problem, it does not matter what the problem is He may not help unless you ask him to.

God our Heavenly Father has given us free will to choose to ask or not to ask – so it is up to us – if we would like His help or not.

So we can stay stressed out or Pray that God will help us and allow The Holy Spirit to comfort us in any kind of need that we are in.    As Christians we know that through Jesus we can pray straight to God our Father, no need to pray through Mary or any of the saintswe have a hot line or phone line to God.

Give it a try if you are a Christian……and you can only be a Christian if you have invited Jesus Christ our Lord into your life (into your heart) as some people say.

So if you are not a Christian reading this you may like to give it a go

with Jesus –  God’s Son.

*

I pray that you have a lovely Day today and that any Stress that is with you will start to dissipate any minute.

May God Bless You and your loved ones today.

Beauty

Psalm 93 verse 1

The LORD reigns,

He is robed in majesty;

The LORD is robed in majesty

and is armed with strength.

*

To see you in your majesty LORD would be wonderful,

while we live on this earth we can only imagine your glory,

with angels around you crying holy,holy,holy.

Although you are mighty in majesty,

you are our strength, 

those of us who belong to you through Jesus Christ our Lord,

praise you LORD God in your beauty and majesty.

From: ‘Drink from the Cup’ Book. By: J. M. R. Larman.

Have you ever thought about the Angels being around the throne of God our Heavenly Father.

They must be very beautiful.

No eye has ever seen the Glory of God.

However we can experience His Glory of peace, love, joy, also contentment.

They must surely be part of His Glory.

The beauty of the Universe, the sky, the sea, all living creatures – are surely part of His Glory.

Let us take time to appreciate the creation of this earth, our families, our friends, the butterflies, the birds, the new born babies of all species including us human beings.

As for us we were born in the likeness of God i.e. the likeness of Jesus, not in the likeness of Monkey’s or Apes.

So let us think that sometimes the Glory of God can be around us in the Sunsets, the Moon Light, also in our everyday lives – then we can Praise God for all His Blessings towards us.

May God Bless you and your loved ones today.

“Ungodly Desires”

This Angel is a Pencil Drawing – by Jessie Larman

*

Jude: Chapter 1 verses 17-18

 But, dear friends,

remember what the apostles

of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.

 They said to you,

“In the last times there will be scoffers

who will follow their own

ungodly desires

***

Today, maybe we can try to follow Godly desires a bit better.

It may be difficult sometimes

but I for one do not want to be a scoffer

nor do I want to do ungodly things.

If you are a Christian you will be feeling the same way,

God will bless us for trying, that we do know.

Taken from Book: Drink from the Cup. Author J.M.R. Larman.

***

*** 

Do you realize that when we find it difficult not to sin

– we do really have a direct line to God

our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The quickest Prayer that I know is:-

  “Help Lord”

To Scoff at someone is to belittle them

or to mock them or to speak derisively,

especially about religion

or to taunt someone making them a laughing stock

to friends or people who may be listening.

***

Let us not stoop to some of these UNGODLY DESIRES !

***

* May God Bless you today

with the

Love of The Lord Jesus *

WE CAN

cvon-sunset

2 Corinthians Chapter 2 verse 10

Godly sorrow brings repentance

that leads to salvation

and leaves no regret

but worldly sorrow brings death.

***

When we truly repent our hearts can sing because we know that we are forgiven, that we will definitely try not to offend God in the way that we used to.              Godly sorrow is good because although we can be sad about the circumstance that has arisen we are blessed so much when we take hold of the fact that Jesus has forgiven us and that our sin is blotted out from Our Father in Heaven.  In worldly sorrow there can be no joy, in Godly sorrow Jesus rejoices that we repent and grants us peace in our hearts.

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

This was going to be a Poem……but never mind, I hope you like what is written. It is called:

                                WE CAN

We are in this world of sin – We do not have to take part in it

We have been given a conscience – We can choose to do right or to sin

We can do all lovely things – We can sing and dance

We can eat and drink – We can love or not love

We can swim or drown – We can walk or run

We can write or draw – We can choose what we want

We can help others or not help – We can do all these things

We can do so much in this world – We can do good things instead of bad

We can decide not to sin – We can use our brain to decide

We can use our heart to discern – We can love The Lord our God

We can love each other – We can therefore have no need to sin.

* God Bless You Today, Have a lovely Day *

It’s good to make Music !

Angel with Trumpet

Psalm: 92 verse 1

It is good to praise The LORD

and

make music

to your name,

O Most High.

*

The Lord Jesus and God our Father loves to hear music either by singing or by playing an instrument.  If you are not gifted to play a musical instrument them lift up your voice and sing.  You cannot say you cannot sing because God gave you your voice and He loves to hear it, so sing in your house, sing in the bath or shower, sing in the car but best of all sing in the congregation.

From the book: ‘Drink from the Cup of Heavenly Blessings’ by J.M.R. Larman.

Singing Lady

Well – can you Sing Today?

?

Maybe you do not feel like singing, so perhaps you can put on some special Music that you like.

 In your own home you can be free to dance and sing on your own or with your family.

 If you have a small child what better way to interact than to hold their little hands dance around with them and sing.

If you are an older person look up some of the old Hymns that you used to like and sing quietly to The Lord in your Prayer Time…….remember you still have a singing voice in their somewhere.  You may surprise yourself that your song sounds very nice.

Everyone likes some sort of Music so put on the sort that you especially like or that you can sing to.

There is a time and place for different kinds of Music during the course of our day (or days)

* Have a lovely Day today *

May God Bless you with the Voice that He has given you.

“Because He loves me”

Psalm: 91 verse 14

“Because He loves me,” say’s The LORD,

“I will rescue him;

I will protect him,

for he acknowledges my name”.

*

Being children of God means that we choose to love Jesus.

So as the Psalm say’s, when we acknowledge His Name

He protects us and rescues us from all our iniquities.

If we are old or young – when we are a Christian we are a child of God.

I mean a child of God our Father in Heaven – the Father of Jesus Christ who is our Lord and Saviour.

 It is good to know that God Loves each one of us, whoever we are, wherever we are.

God can see us during the daylight or during the night when it is dark.  He never sleeps and can be with us always when we have invited Jesus into our Life. (into our heart)

When we have Jesus in our heart we have the Trinity – that means we have God The Father and the Holy Spirit as well as Jesus i.e. Three in one.

So how can you say that you are lonely when you have The Holy Spirit to talk to and fellowship with Him day and night.

I know we can be lonely – wanting and needing a human being to talk to sometimes and that is only natural – think of this – we are never alone, never because The Spirit of Jesus – The Holy Spirit – The Comforter whom Jesus sent to be with us when He went back to Heaven is with us in our heart.

So there we are, as Christians we are truly blessed with the Love of The Lord Jesus.

JesusLovesYou

This is the day that the Lord has made,

let us be glad and rejoice in it.

I Pray that you have a lovely Day today.

* God Bless You. (and me) with the Love of THE LORD *

Adopted Children

yellowwildflwrsleemanholiday2016

Here is a beautiful photo of children playing in the lovely Wildflowers.

As Christians we are Children in Gods Kingdom.

*****

Ephesians: Chapter 1 verse 5

Having predestined us to be adopted

as His children through Jesus Christ,

 to Himself,

according to the good pleasure of His will.

***

Imagine God loving us so much that He wants us to be part of His own family!      When we accept Jesus as our Saviour, Jesus then becomes our Brother and God becomes our Spiritual Father.

We belong to the King of Kings, the God of God’s.

We are very precious to our Heavenly Father.

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

***

It is good to be a Child of God, who is our Heavenly Father.  Yes we are God’s Adopted Children when we accept Jesus God’s Son as our Saviour.  With Jesus in our lives it makes a lot of difference to many of us just to know that we do have a Father in Heaven who cares for us even more than our earthly father does.

Our God is the same yesterday, today and forever, His love does not change towards us.

He does not make us love Him.

 He has given us a choice, we are not puppets, we have free will to choose His Son Jesus or not to,

it is up to us to decide.

All I can say is:  that a friend and I agreed – once you have lived with the Holy Spirit (who is the Spirit of Jesus) you would not want to live without Him in your life.  Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to be with us after He went back to Heaven after dying on the Cross for us, so that we would not be left as orphan’s but could be part of the family of God.

Father & Son

It is good to have a Father, if we are not fortunate enough to have an earthly one – as Christians we can be sure of a Heavenly one.

Have you been Disciplined?

2GlowBookGlasses2

Psalm: 94 verse 12

Blessed is the man You discipline,

O LORD,

the man you teach from your law;

***

Yes, we are disciplined by our Heavenly Father.  Often we do not like to be disciplined but it is necessary.  The same as an earthly father teaches and disciplines his children, our Spiritual Father needs to correct us His spiritual children.                                           We have to learn a whole lot of new things when we  become Born Again, we have to learn spiritual things and let go of all the worldly ways.

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

So there we are – what about that then.  You see a lot of people don’t realize that God our Heavenly Father can see us where ever we are.  Therefore it is no good trying to hide like we may have done when we were children, hiding from our Mother or Father thinking they would not find out what we were up to!

No, God can see us and yes we need to repent so that Jesus can forgive us……well we don’t always want to repent because we may be getting pleasure from what ever wrong thing we are doing.

But as Christians – we come under a different Law…..the Law of God…that He has set down in the Ten Commandment that He gave to Moses.

You may like to look them up in the Holy Bible if you cannot remember them, most of us can’t remember them all on the spur of the moment, so we do need to refresh our learning by not just reading them but trying to do what they say.
Just think how good we can feel when we have overcome some awful thing that we should not have been doing or thinking.

To truly repent is to not continuing doing that unlawful thing!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is very hard to give up lying, smoking, drinking to much alcohol, gossiping, gambling, violence against our loved ones and others of course.  But we do have to try if we really want to walk in the Love of our Heavenly Father, who does love each of us even more than our earthly Father does.

Let us start afresh today and do something nice for our Heavenly Father – one nice thing to do is to pray for our family and friends, also for those in need of help in anyway that they can be blessed in some way today.  We can ask The Holy Spirit to help us to Pray through Jesus Christ our Lord, who can help us ourselves to overcome with His help to live according to the Law of our God.

* May God Bless us Christians

who are His family on this earth *

Remember Mary?

Mother& Child

The above is a drawing I did of the Madonna & Child.

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.

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

ShepherdSheep2

Oil Painting of Jesus as (The Good Shepherd)

Well – do we remember about Mary the Mother of Jesus – what has been written in the Holy Bible?  She must have been a remarkable young woman.  Maybe only around sixteen years of age.  I don’t think she would have been out drinking and doing drugs like some young people (and older ones) are doing now in this world that we live in.

If we could put ourselves in Mary’s shoes – whatever would we think, how would we cope with our everyday living knowing as she did that God had planted His one and only Son into her womb?  Also she was engaged to be married, imagine telling her husband to be what had happened to her.

It could not have been easy for her.

If you are a man reading this your thoughts may have been the same as Joseph who she was engaged to – until of course the Angel told him what had happened.

So you see there is quite a lot to consider when we think of Mary – the Mother of our Lord Jesus who is my Saviour and I pray  that He is yours too.

As it is now getting near to Christmas I believed this would give us food for thought.

* God Bless You over this Christmas Time *

Guard my Mouth

SecretDoor

Drawing of an old old Roman Doorway.

————-

Psalm 141 verse 3

Set a guard over my mouth,

O LORD;

 Keep watch over the door of my lips.

Sometimes I think it is a good thing to ask The LORD to put a guard over my mouth to stop me saying something wrong and then wishing that I had not said it.  As Christians we must be very careful what we say to others so that we do not offend them because in doing so we offend God if we do not speak righteously.  Today please God guard my mouth, the door of my lips and my speaking.  Amen.

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

*****

Why put a drawing of an old Roman Doorway on here…….well as you may know they were very very large for horses and carriages to go through.

The doorway of our heart is our mouth…..our tongue especially is the instrument that speaks.

 Mostly as you can imagine our tongue is untamed.

So we need to tame our tongue, lets face it we can never do that on our own.  The best idea is to ask The Lord to help us to speak in the way that He would prefer us to speak to others.

i.e. to encourage and not put them down.

But no, we have to have our say – whatever it may be with not a thought sometimes how it will affect the person we are talking to.

We should remember that:  out of the Heart the Mouth speaks.

When we speak – people will often know what we are thinking in our heart.  Our tongue is very unruly sometimes and it is good to pray now and then to ask God if He would put a guard over the door of our mouth. 

I pray that God will tame my tongue and guard the door of my mouth how about you, would you like to do that?

* If you do – I pray that your tongue will Bless someone today *
