Let us Talk to Each Other *

Let us be glad that we can talk to others with the Love of The Lord.

3 John verse 14

I hope to see you soon and we will talk face to face.

***

John said the above while writing to his friends and I was just thinking it would be lovely to talk face to face with you. It is lovely when we as Christians can talk to each other about the love of Jesus isn’t it? As I can’t see you today to talk to I would like to say that I hope you have a lovely day. God Bless you.

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’

As many people are self isolating due to the Covid 19 – Corona Virus…… I thought this would be a good time to think – that yes, it would be nice to talk to you face to face. However may people are now talking on their iPads re: video talks….that is marvellous to do if possible.

For many people in isolation it is not possible if they do not have access to the internet or they do not have iPads but it is still a good idea to keep in touch with love ones over the phone. That is one way that the virus cannot be spread and also to help stop the loneliness that some people feel when they are not allowed to go out and socialize or for many elderly not able to go shopping each day.

Let us remember to pray for each other and maybe think about having a phone call to a family member who we have not seen for a while just to ask if they are o.k. and coping alright at this awful Pandemic time .

I Pray that The Lord will Bless our Families.

I Pray that you keep well and free from the Covid 19 Corona Virus.

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.

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.

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.

What about Moses?

2GlowBookGlasses2

Malachi: Chapter 4 verse 4.

Remember the law of my servant Moses,

the decrees and laws

I gave Him at Horeb for all Israel.

***

Do you remember the law that was given to Moses, we know that as Christians we live by grace now and not by law.  However we do need to live according to the Commandments that were given to Moses.

If we break one we may as well have broken the lot because in the eyes of God – sin is sin however large or small.

 I am thankful that we can ask Jesus to forgive us and that He does, especially as we go before God asking for all that we seem to ask Him for!

Yellow Scroll

I have put a picture of a Scroll on here today to remind us that the Ten Commandments  may have been put on a Scroll to be read out to people.

Moses of course brought them down from the mountain on the tablets that had been written “with the finger of God” 

We are very fortunate that we can read them in our Holy Bible (Exodus 31:18) it is good to check them out once in a while to see what we should be doing and possibly not what we are doing.

One of them says ‘that you should have no other Gods”

So what other Gods do we have in our lives…. maybe some sort of Idols, or maybe the love of money, food, gossip, television, there are lots of things that take priority in our lives instead of living a godly life with the love of Jesus and walking with the Holy Spirit in our daily lives.  One thing is to love our neighbour as ourselves (difficult that one – if we are not keen about talking to some people) even family members.

It really is a Christian challenge to try to keep the Ten Commandments isn’t it? 

Hands Colour

Let us Pray that we can become more Godly day by Day walking in the Love of The Lord.

May God our Heavenly Father Bless us Today

The Blood of Jesus

Hebrews:  Chapter 10 verse 19

Therefore,

brothers,

since we have confidence

to enter the Most Holy Place

by the blood of Jesus………

*

It’s good to read the next few verses in the  Bible, of the above scripture to know that we have been cleansed by the Blood of Jesus to enter into that Most Holy Place.

For us to pray directly to our Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

So today have confidence to come before God as one of His children to pray for your needs, then give Him the Glory that He is entitled to.

Because there is no-one like our God.

He is Almighty God the one and only true God maker of Heaven and Earth.  Amen.

The above is taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.

Just imagine – Jesus shed His blood for us  –  yes – you and me and all our families and friends.

The blood in our veins is the life force of our bodies, without it we would die.  Our blood did not evolve, it was there in the beginning when God our Heavenly Father made us Male and Female.  Likewise all the animals, the birds, the bees, the creepy crawly things.

Our blood did not come from Ape’s or Monkey’s it is special to us as Human beings, Almighty God is the Creator of the Universe and of all things.  He did not mess about evolving things  – He spoke them into being  – that included us and when He did he breathed His Breath into us and made us a Living Soul.  Each one of us is different from each other, none of us have the same Finger Prints but we do have Fingers and Finger Prints – just look at your hands and see.

So each one of us has BLOOD in our bodies the same as Jesus had in His but He shed His Blood for us on the Cross so that we can be forgiven for our sins to become Christians when we acknowledge Him and accept Him into our life and heart which will still be beating not just with the Blood but with the Love of God our Heavenly Father.  We do not have to shed our Blood to become a Christian – how marvellous is that –

Do you know that God our Heavenly Father made us and loves each one of us?

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.

* Have a lovely Day today *

* May God Bless You *

God hear’s us (you and me) !!!

Psalm 55 verse 22

Cast your cares on The LORD

and

He will sustain you;

He will never let the righteous fall.

*

Isn’t that marvellous, that our God will sustain us!

Whatever our circumstance,

being righteous in Jesus Christ –

when we call on God He does hear us.

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

*

Do you know that God does hear our Prayers.  To be sure that He hears them we do need to have Jesus in our heart as our Lord and Saviour.  So we then can Pray straight to God our Heavenly Father.  When we are learning to pray – a good Prayer is The Lord’s Prayer.  If we are a new Christian and not sure what to pray this is a good one to learn.

This is the Prayer that Jesus taught His Disciples to pray and it really covers every thing that we need.

Of course we can pray for anything at anytime and as long as it is within God’s Will He will allow it for us to come into being.  Maybe not straight away and that is when we start to doubt whether He has heard our prayer.  You see sometimes it is not good for us to have everything we want just when we want it.

When we were a child we had to wait until we were old enough to have certain things or to go to certain places maybe on our own and our Parent would say ( ‘no’ you have to wait)  Well God is our Heavenly Father and He knows what is best for us and He cares for us.  In whatever circumstance’s we find ourselves it is good to know that He cares about us and loves us and will provide for us at  the right time.

It is good to know that we have a God of Love who cares for us and our families.

We do need to Pray for our loved ones so they can also be  blessed.

* God Bless you – have a Lovely Day today *

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.
