Rejoice in your heart with Joy!

Psalm 118 verse 28-29

You are my God and I will Praise you;

You are my God and I will exalt you.

Give thanks to The Lord for He is Good;

His love endures forever.

Do you know that God’s love does endure forever..

God is our Father in Heaven.

If we belong to Him as Christians and have invited Jesus into our hearts, into our lives He is our Heavenly Father.

He will always love us even though we often ignore Him and take Him for granted.


Actually God does love all the creatures that He has made.

But as humans we do need to acknowledge Him, talk to Him, listen to Him.

That would be through The Holy Spirit that we have within us when we become a Christian.

Why not pray the above if you are not a Christian and would like to be one!

Here are some Links you may like to check out:

The Book of Prayers is written to help new (as well as other Christians) to pray for certain things and people. Some young Christians are not sure how to pray or what to pray for – so this book is a special help for them to pray specific Prayers.


True Stories of God Book talks about things that God has allowed to happen in my life. Hope you find it interesting.

I Pray that you have a good Day Today.

Should we Speak for Others?

Speaking out may help those who do not know what to say. The above is a Painting I did of a Father and Child..

Proverbs: 31 v 8

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,

for the rights of all who are destitute.”


We do need to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves,

especially the little children,

the babies,

the unborn that people want to abort.

Speak up for those who cannot speak,

pray for them,

don’t let the devil have them.

Pray for those in the world who are destitute,

that they may come to know Jesus today.

The above is taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ here is the link if you would like to see the book. It is a daily devotional that can be used year after year.



So – what can we say to make things better for someone today….. well we could say ‘hello’ and ask how they are. Or we could speak to them on the phone, ask how they are and also maybe ask if they would like us to pray for anything special that they need. We can therefore speak up for them in regard to a prayer….. many people are not sure how to pray….. how to ask God our Heavenly Father for whatever they may be in need of.

Many, even some Christians are not sure if they can ask God for something for themselves.

They pray for others but feel they don’t like to ask for themselves.

However in the Bible it says ask and you will receive…..that of course is if you know Jesus as Lord of your life….. i.e. that you have invited Him into your heart.

We can speak out and ask for other peoples needs. Also remember we can ask someone else to pray for us.

In the world we need to speak up in our communities, our towns, our villages when we see a need that others cannot speak up about. That is another way we can look after each other, wherever we live.

Let us Pray…… Let us speak up for others.

* I hope you have a lovely day today with your family and friends *

Keep Watch

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’

Here is the Link for this book: https://www.amazon.com.au/Drink-Heavenly-Blessings-straight-Bible-ebook/dp/B08F2YC95L/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=drink+from+the+cup&qid=1598250253&s=books&sr=1-4

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.


This is a help you to Pray Book.

It is nice to pray for the Children and those in need.

*May God Bless you today….. Have a Lovely Day.*


God hear’s us (you and me) !!!

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.

* God Bless you – have a Lovely Day today *

Adopted Children


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.


* May God Bless you today and always *







A Special Son


Matthew:  Chapter 1 verse 21.

She will give birth to a Son

and you are to give him the name


because he will save his people

from their sins.


I am so glad that Mary was obedient, because if she had not given birth to Jesus where would you and I be today?  It does not bear to think about it!  Praise God today for the birth of Jesus who also was obedient to Our Heavenly Father to the extent of dying on The Cross for yours and my sins.  I Praise you Heavenly Father that you allowed Your only Son Jesus to come to earth to save us from certain death.  Thank You that we choose the 25th. December to celebrate the Birth of Jesus Christ our Lord being  born on this earth.  Amen.

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


All of us as Christians know this story above.  How would you feel if you had to give up your Son to save someone.  We really could not do that could we? Or maybe it would be a Daughter that you could be asked to give up to save someone.  Both Sons and Daughters are very precious to us.  Just think how much we love them and then concider just how much God loves us that He gave His only Son to come to Earth for our sakes.  That is incredible and our human brains cannot fathom out the great love that God has for us his people.

Jesus was obedient to His Father in Heaven and all Power on earth is given to Him. 

So He can confidently say in the Bible John: Chapter 14 verse 6.

(No one comes to the Father except by me)

Now is the time if you have not done so already to ask Jesus to come into your heart – your life, if you would like to go to Heaven when your body dies.

All you have to do (if you do not know already) is to repent of your sins (that is to tell God you are sorry for all the wrong things you have done) and ask Jesus to forgive you. Then you can invite Him in – and yes He will be with you.

Unless you ask Him He will not be part of your life – He does not go where He is not wanted.

So  think of all the blessings you will miss out on if you do not invite Him to be with you.


Father & Son

God Bless You



Fear of The Lord

 Sunset Boat Harbour 3

Proverbs: Chapter 1  verse 7

The fear of The LORD

is the beginning of knowledge


fools despise wisdom




I think I shall ask The LORD for more knowledge and wisdom today, I do not want to be a fool, I pray that I do have the fear of The LORD and I certainly do not despise wisdom and knowledge.

For my part I know that I do love wisdom and knowledge, also I do know that I definitely need more!  Thank you LORD God that you continue to fill me afresh each day, also with the knowledge and love of Jesus.



So let us just think where are we really going to get this knowledge and wisdom from……well I think it does help to read our Bible  because it has been written for our learning. Therefore if we decide not to read, then we are limiting our brains to absorb knowledge and wisdom from the Apostles and followers of Jesus that are written about in the most Holy Book.

Lots of them were not clever people but with the account of their lives we can learn from their mistakes. (Hopefully we can!)

So where does the FEAR come from then?

You see we are not to be afraid of our God because He is the God of Love.  Our only fear is to be that we really don’t acknowledge Him as we should and that we don’t always walk in the knowledge that He is our Heavenly Father and He Loves us even more than our earthly fathers love us.

We do fear being chastised by our earthly fathers and need to realize that our Heavenly Father does chastise us too.


is that we DO NOT need to be



I hope you have a lovely day walking in the Love and Knowledge, Wisdom and Joy of our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Heavenly Father.



Sons of God


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 believe on His Name:


We must believe on and in the name of Jesus.

Then we can become Sons of God,

filled with all power and authority

of Jesus Christ our Lord.

With the knowledge that God is truly

Our Father in Heaven.


Isn’t it lovely to think that we have a Father in Heaven.  Also to think that He is the one and only True Living God.  Do you realize that Jesus is alive – He is not dead – 

God has a Son – His name is Jesus –

So – God is a Father and He wants us to become His Sons (that means Daughters as well).  Therefore when we receive Jesus we too become one of God’s Sons.  He made us to be a family for Him but we have a choice – we are not puppets – He lets us choose to be part of His family – He does not automatically include us.  If we want to live in the world without Jesus then we are free to do so.  But how terrible – then we would not be going to Eternity when we leave this earth.

How wonderful Eternity must be filled with the Glory of God and all the Heavenly Host.

Angel 1

May God Our Heavenly Father Bless Us Today.

Remember to Ask Him to Bless You.

Like our earthly Fathers I am sure that God likes us to Ask.



Spiritual Blessings

 Cornocopia   Cornocopia

 Ephesians:  Chapter 1 verse 3.

Praise be to the God and Father

of our Lord Jesus Christ,

who has blessed us in the heavenly realms

with every spiritual blessing

in Christ.


Can you ever imagine all the beautiful spiritual blessings that we have been given? Just sit and think for a moment on some of them  –  then, what about the earthly blessings that we have. God loves us so much He really wants us to have the best of His blessings.

 I wonder what special blessing is in store for us today?



So what are the Spiritual Blessings

that we have?

Let us have a think…. First would be our Salvation that Jesus really did die on the Cross for us.  We cannot really imagine how that could be but we can accept that He did it for us to become Sons of the Living God i.e. our Father in Heaven.

Spiritual Blessings can be Peace, Love, Joy, Contentment, Healing, Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding and normal everyday Commonsense etc.,

Also Earthly Blessings…

What could they be….well we can have another think….we have families, friends, food and shelter, finance.  But one really nice thing to think about is that we have all things that were made at the time of Creation….NOT Evolution.  Look around at the beautiful things that our God has made, none of us can make even a birds feather, a flower, the wind, the waves, the seas, the fish and animals.  Also he has made our Brothers and Sisters here and throughout this earth the we live on.

Let us Praise the God and Father of:

our Lord Jesus Christ.

God Bless You Today with whatever Blessings you have.
