Matthew: Chapter 24 verse 42
Therefore keep watch,
because you do not know
on what day your Lord will come.
How do we keep watch?
Well – I believe that to keep watch is to try to be ready,
to have our house in order.
That is to say – have our hearts prepared,
ready and waiting just incase it is today
– that Jesus comes.
The above us taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’
You can use this book year after year. It has recently been republished to go on the internet – I have been using this little book daily for at least 20years and each day there is something special for us to read and to know. Praise The Lord!
Let us continue to prepare out hearts while we wait for Jesus to come back to this Earth, that means me as well. Let us get rid of all unholy things that are in there. Like jealousy, hate, gossip, bitterness, strife, lies, covetousness, the list goes on and on, lets get rid of them and Praise The Lord ! We should then be more ready if today is the day that The Lord Jesus comes for us.
None of us can live forever on this Planet Earth, let us enjoy our life while we are here – remember we have The Holy Spirit to help us to overcome whatever it is we need to overcome. We have the love of Jesus with us and we have our Heavenly Father who hears all our prayers.
So let us Rejoice for – This is the day that The Lord has made –
let us Rejoice and be glad in it.
*May God Bless you today….. Have a Lovely Day.*
Psalm: 23 verse 3
He restores my Soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Thank you LORD that you restore my Soul, so that I do not long for worldly things but can walk in righteousness to the best of the ability that you give me today.

So what about our Soul? ….. we cannot see it….we cannot hear it…..we cannot feel it…..but it is there, it is here, it is part of our being. It is maybe our emotional part of who we are…it maybe our intellect….we may not be as clever as some people —- but —- we all have a Soul, we all have feelings. Feelings of love, sadness, joy, hopefulness plus other feelings of course. And we need to guard our Soul, it is precious, don’t let the devil have it. Let us try to walk in righteousness and truth all the days of our life on this Planet Earth. ***** I hope you have a lovely day today walking in the Love of The Lord Jesus who sent His Holy Spirit to be with us and to help us each day as we try to walk in the paths of RIGHTEOUSNESS. *
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.
Hebrews: Chapter 10 verse 19
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?
* I Pray that you have a Lovely Day Today *
Here is a book you may like to see – just open up to have a look by the link below.!!!
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 *

Psalm 55 verse 22
Cast your cares on The LORD
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.
