Do you like Comfort?
On the Wings of an Eagle let your Spirit Soar.
Psalm 34 verse 18
The LORD is close to the broken-hearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
We all get broken-hearted and crushed in our spirit at sometime during our lives here on this earth. Let us remember to come to God at those times, sit at His feet, give Him our burdens and He will comfort us by His Holy spirit, whom Jesus sent to be our comforter. Today if this is a day of any sort of burden for you, please know that God is very close to you.

What else can we say about comfort?
Sometimes it is nice to just have a cup of tea, that can be a comfort when we get a bit stressed with whatever is going on during the day.
We should make time to have some kind of comfort for ourselves …… that can be things that give us pleasure, maybe going for a walk, gardening, craft work anything that we are able to do and enjoy doing can be called a comfort I think. For myself I like to do ‘Oil Paintings, Water colours, Pen/Ink drawings – they can be called my comfort zone. Also the books that I write can take me out of the everyday world into the lovely world of writing.
Another kind of comfort is to curl up in bed when we are not feeling very well. That is a great comfort to lay there and pray for the sickness or painfulness to go away. As we lay there in our comfort zone it is a good time to pray for others who maybe in need of some prayer, then some of our discomfort goes away!
Remember – The Holy Spirit is our Comforter…… however – we do need to ask Him to comfort us and He will. Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to help us, guide us and comfort us. That is a marvelous thing to remember when we are in need of any kind of help or comfort.
Praise The Lord He can comfort us, wherever we may be in this world.

* Have a Lovely Comfortable Day Today *
Are we Obedient?
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.
I Pray that God will Bless us Today as we try to be more Obedient to Him – Our Father in Heaven, Jesus Christ His Son and to the Holy Spirit.
I hope you have a lovely Day today.
Christmas is a Special Time of the Year so we can Celebrate the Birth of Jesus.
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.

God Hates Evil
This Oil Painting is by J.M.R. Larman it is of Rocky Pool in Carnarvon. W.Australia.
Psalm: 97 verse 10
Let those who love The LORD hate evil,
for He guards the lives of His faithful ones
and delivers them from
the hand of the wicked.
Thank you LORD for your protection toward me and my family
including all those I love and pray for. Amen.
Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
Today is a good day to not do anything that is evil, that is let us try not to do any bad thing today. I know that it is very difficult sometimes not to use swear words, or to shout at our loved ones or to make someone cry! Let us try to be kind today. Let us be kind to those that The Lord brings before us. It may be a stranger that we meet while shopping or travelling on our holiday.
If we can help someone without expecting anything in return that is good.
Anything that is good is not evil in the sight of God our Heavenly Father.
God our Heavenly Father protects us wherever we go i.e. down the street, or next door to neighbours, on holiday, or in the workplace just about anywhere. But we loose that protection if we go and join in where evil lurks. God will chastise us, remember He is our Heavenly Father – we are His children, so like our earthly Father would choose to chastise us so will He. (Not a good feeling if we have done wrong when we belong to the Kingdom of God).
There we are then – just a thought that we may like to consider, so that we can continue to have the protection for ourselves and our families. Today and always.
* God Bless You Today – Have a lovely Joyful day *
What about The Spirit
Luke: Chapter 4 verses 18-19
“The Spirit of The Lord is on me,
because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor,
He has sent me to proclaim freedom
for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to release the oppressed,
to proclaim the year of The Lord’s favour”
Today we can proclaim the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ.
Praise Him that He will anoint us to do so.
Let us ask for His special anointing of The Holy Spirit afresh today.
From the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
The above Scripture was spoken by Jesus but we should remember that He has asked us also to tell people about Him. To proclaim the Gospel of the Lord is to let others know about our Lord Jesus, about God our Heavenly Father and about The Holy Spirit. We should not be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ because as it is written in the Holy Bible – the Gospel is to be preached throughout the world before Jesus comes back again.
As Christians we know this but really speaking we rarely talk about the Lord to our friends, family or workmates. Why are we hesitant to do this?
Mainly because we do not like being ridiculed but Jesus said that we as Christians will be made to look foolish sometimes when we talk about Him to unbelievers……..But how are they going to know if we do not speak out the truth so that they too came come into Salvation before they leave this earth.
All we have to do is to plant the seed of the faith that we have and tell them what we believe and The Holy Spirit may even convict them of His Presence.
A friend and I talked a long time ago and we agreed with each other that once you have lived with The Holy Spirit in your life you would never want to live without Him.
Jesus sent Him to be our Comforter, our Guide in our everyday living – He is the Spirit of Jesus – we need no other Spirit to Guide us. He is with us forever when we invite Jesus into our heart – that is into our life –
And do you know that our God (Our Father in Heaven) loves us and He never sleeps – He will hear us when we pray day or night where ever we are. So Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to help us to Pray.
Why not give Jesus a go if you have not already done so.
He is just waiting to hear from you.
If you have never thought of asking Jesus to be in your life, now is a good time to ask Him if He would like to be part of your life – you may be surprised that He would say yes if you would like to have Him. You need to mean it though, we cannot be flippant as it is quite an important step to take, because then you would be a Christian and belong to the Kingdom of God. What an honour that would be.

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
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:-
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
Love of The Lord Jesus *

Zechariah: Chapter 9 verse 17
For how great is His goodness
how great is His beauty!
How can we comprehend the beauty of God, He must be magnificent. With Jesus sitting on His right hand side, surrounded by Glory, also with Angels singing Holy, Holy, Holy is The LORD. His beauty must be incredible.
From book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ with Bible verse from King James version.
What do you think about God’s goodness especially to us as His people……?
Goodness is different from being good.
Really none of us can claim to be Good only God is Good. We all fall short of being good in one way or another. We can try day by day to be better Christians but the fact still remains that God our Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit can truly be GOOD.
So what about Goodness then?
Well GOODNESS I believe is different from being GOOD.
God showers His GOODNESS on us day by day
What does His GOODNESS consist of:
I think it consists of our daily needs that He supplies us with. Also – although His beauty is great He allows us to see beauty….think of the lovely Sunsets, the Sunrise – His GOODNESS would include our family, friends, pets, different foods that we like to enjoy, rest & recreation – as well of the works that He allows us to do.
So it is GOOD to do something GOOD for our God but that does not make us GOOD.
Jesus is the only one who is GOOD that has walked on this earth as a human being, none of us can compare ourselves with Jesus. Nor should we try to compare ourselves with Him but we can try to walk a Goodly life in the Love of the Lord Jesus who is our Lord and Saviour.
I pray that you have a GOOD day in the Love of the LORD.
* Remember we are His Sheep and He cares for us *
