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.

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.

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

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,
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.
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.
* May God Bless you today and always *
Drawing of an old old Roman Doorway.
Psalm 141 verse 3
Set a guard over my mouth,
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 *
St. John: Chapter 1 verse 12
But as many as received Him,
to them gave He power
to become the sons of God,
even to them that
believed on His name:
We must believe on the Name of Jesus if we want to be a Son of God. Are you a Son of God? If not how about inviting Jesus into your heart today, even this minute, so that you can be a Son of the most High God. It is something us as Christians treasure, having Jesus in our hearts.
The above is taken from the book:
‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
To be a Son of God is a bit different than being a Son of your earthly Father. How can we describe the difference – well that is difficult if you have not experienced it for yourself.
One of the main things is that when you are a Son of God then He is your Heavenly Father, you belong to His family with Jesus His Son as your Saviour and Brother, with The Holy Spirit (that is The Spirit of Jesus that Jesus sent to be with us when He went back up to Heaven).
So we not only have Jesus in our hearts but the whole Trinity
– Father, Son and Holy Ghost –
We are never alone.
So when our earthly father dies and is gone from this life, we as Christians have our Heavely Father with us forever through Jesus Christ our Lord.
That can be a great comfort to know this.
Have a lovely Day today knowing that as a Christian we are never alone.
Proverbs Chapter 14 verse 31.
He who oppresses the poor
shows contempt for their Maker
but whoever is kind to the needy
Who of us that belong to God would want to oppress the poor? However this does seem to happen sometimes without us even knowing until it is pointed out to us by God. The poor are not only those without financial or worldly goods but are those poor souls without Jesus. The kindest thing we can do is to tell them about Him as well as befriending them.
The above is taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
Let us see how nice it is to be kind to one another. Sometimes just a smile will do. Other times we may need to do a bit more to be kind to those we love. How often do we take our families for granted expecting them to do things for us and grumbling when they don’t. Well – maybe we should look at our own attitude remembering that we will honour God our Heavenly Father when we take time to appreciate those who are in our care.
It is good to let others know that we have Jesus in our lives and as Christians encourage others to want to know why.
God Bless you today if you are a Christian and also if you are not maybe you may decide to become one. It is very easy – just repent of your sins and ask Jesus to come into your life, how about that then?………..Well one day you may give it a go……..
To Repent means: that you do not want to do that bad thing again whatever it is or was.
Have lovely day today.
Are you feeling lonely today?
Are you feeling lonely today? How about submitting yourself afresh to Jesus, ask Him to come into your life even more to-day.
Then thank Him for all your blessings and pray with the help of ….. The Holy Spirit.
If you have never asked Jesus into your heart,
now is a good time to ask Him to come in.
With God The Father, Jesus Christ His Son plus The Holy Spirit in your life, you will never be on your own again because you are immediately Born into God’s Spiritual Kingdom.
Then let a Christian know that you have done this. Because the declaration of your faith makes it become active!
We who are Christians know this to be true and know that it is good to submit ourselves afresh to God each day.
If you are not sure still how to become a Christian here is a Prayer you can pray:
