Our Soul is Special

May our Soul be Gentle

Galatians: Chapter 5 v 16.

So I say, live by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

Dear God help us today not to gratify those desires of the flesh that are not right by you. We do need your help God, we cannot do any thing good by ourselves without You and Jesus, by the help of your Holy Spirit. Amen.

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’

Let us be Gentle as a Dove.
This is one of my Oil Paintings.

So where are we at today then? What desire of the flesh are we thinking of today to do that we should not do? Are we going to argue with our friends and neighbours, gorge ourselves with unhealthy food, try to steal from the Supermarkets, or take money that we are not entitled to. There seems to be a lot of unholy desires of the flesh including coveting our friends husband or wives, getting drunk and disorderly, taking people to court for no good reason to do so except to satisfy our own thinking that we are right and they are wrong.

Today let our desire be to please God our Heavenly Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.

Maybe we can do something nice for someone (God would be pleased about that) what can we do then for them? One good thing do do is to pray for whoever comes to mind or whoever we meet during the daytime. No need to stand and pray so that they can see, it is best to pray privately in our own Prayer time with The Holy Spirit.

I Pray you have a lovely day * today *

May God our Father in Heaven Bless you and your family wherever you are

Are we Obedient?

The Angel of The LORD.

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 Little Children and Jesus

Jesus with Children

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.

Thank God for His Grace

John: Chapter 4 verse 22

Samaritans worship what you do not know;

we worship what we do know,

for salvation is from the Jews.

*

Jesus said the above and it is true, so we do need to pray for the Jew’s and thank God for His Grace that He receives us Gentiles into Salvation.  Let us be thankful today for the incredible love of Our Father in Heaven.

Snowflake blk

So the above gives us food for thought – as most people think it not necessary to pray for the Jews.  We must remember that a lot of them are not Christians, they do need our Prayers.  Yes the Jew’s are God’s chosen people but many have rejected Jesus and that is very sad as they do not recognize Him as their Saviour and Lord of Lords.

We are very fortunate that God our Heavenly Father accepts us Gentiles into Salvation when we acknowledge Jesus Christ His Son to be Lord of our lives and invite Him into our Hearts.  And what a Blessing that He allows His Holy Spirit to be with us – Praise The Lord.

So:  Let us submit ourselves afresh today to Our Father in Heaven.

Let us walk in the Love of Jesus

and

in Fellowship with The Holy Spirit. 

*

May God Bless us today.

Have a Lovely Day walking in the Love of The Lord.

Proverbs:  12 verse 28

In the way of righteousness there is life;

along that path is immortality.

*

Today is another day for us to walk in righteousness,

to walk in true life on our way to immortality,

to eternity.

 Walk in righteousness with Jesus today,

tell Him you love Him and look forward

to the day when we walk in Heaven with Him.

*

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

Well what does it mean then to walk in righteousness?

I think it means that we should be careful what we say and do, especially in front of our little children and also in the presence of our grown up family and friends.  Children mainly only know what they are taught, so we do need to try to teach them the right way to live.  That surely would be walking in righteousness for us to show them how.

We all make mistakes and cannot be perfect all the time, however we can say sorry if we have said or done the wrong thing.  Jesus forgives us when we repent and say with are sorry, then of course we can feel free of any guilt that we have said or done the wrong thing and hopefully remember not to do it again.

Yes Children need to be taught to do the right thing – also they need to be taught to say the word sorry to their friends and family, even as we need to do so.

I hope you have a lovely day trying to walk in Righteousness with The Lord, remember The Holy Spirit will help you if you ask Him – especially if you are struggling with any problems regarding your walk with Jesus. 

* God Bless You Today *

HERE IS A LINK THAT MAY INTEREST YOU OF OUR LATEST BOOK:

 

 

 

 

*Do Something Nice today *

1 Corinthians: Chapter 15 verse 58.

Therefore,

my dear brothers,

stand firm.

 Let nothing move you.

 Always give yourselves fully

to the work of The Lord,

because you know

that your labour in The Lord

is not in vain.

***

Our labour in The Lord is definitely not in vain.

He sees all the things that we do for Him.

Everything is recorded of our works.

So today maybe we could do something nice for The Lord Jesus.

***

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

So what then is our labour in The Lord?  I believe it is mostly to keep the Ten Commandments that were given all those years ago to Moses.  Well, some people think that we do not need to read the Old Testament in the Bible but we do need to heed what it says.

If you have never read the Old Testament feel free to give it a go.

You may be surprised and learn something new each day.  You only need to read a bit each day, it’s no good just reading it if you cannot digest what it is saying and just reading for the sake of saying that you have read it.  Take your time and just read a few verses at a time so that  you can understand more fully what those verses really mean.  There is no hurry and just a few minutes at the same time each day will make a lot of difference.

So to do something nice today – would be perhaps to get up and go for a walk and say ‘Hello’ to someone.  Or to visit someone you know who has not been able to go out for a while.  We can take a little gift, perhaps a posy of Flowers, a packet of Biscuits to stay and have a cuppa with them.  If you have made extra cake or cakes, someone may appreciate your visit if you take some to them.

We don’t always have to stay and talk – just deliver your gift to them at the door and say * God Bless * to them.

That I believe – is  also working or doing something for the Lord Jesus.

We can’t all be in the limelight doing great things but I am sure that The Lord acknowledges our efforts to help our families and friends.  

One of the Commands is to Love our Neighbours as ourselves…….a bit difficult sometimes but never the less it is a Commandment that we should think about…..well you may ask who is my neighbour?  Just the normal people we meet each and every day, I think that they are our neighbours in this world.

* May God Bless Us Today

as We Stand Firm

to do the Work of The Lord *

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 *

It’s good to make Music !

Angel with Trumpet

Psalm: 92 verse 1

It is good to praise The LORD

and

make music

to your name,

O Most High.

*

The Lord Jesus and God our Father loves to hear music either by singing or by playing an instrument.  If you are not gifted to play a musical instrument them lift up your voice and sing.  You cannot say you cannot sing because God gave you your voice and He loves to hear it, so sing in your house, sing in the bath or shower, sing in the car but best of all sing in the congregation.

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

Singing Lady

Well – can you Sing Today?

?

Maybe you do not feel like singing, so perhaps you can put on some special Music that you like.

 In your own home you can be free to dance and sing on your own or with your family.

 If you have a small child what better way to interact than to hold their little hands dance around with them and sing.

If you are an older person look up some of the old Hymns that you used to like and sing quietly to The Lord in your Prayer Time…….remember you still have a singing voice in their somewhere.  You may surprise yourself that your song sounds very nice.

Everyone likes some sort of Music so put on the sort that you especially like or that you can sing to.

There is a time and place for different kinds of Music during the course of our day (or days)

* Have a lovely Day today *

May God Bless you with the Voice that He has given you.

Remember Mary?

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about:

she was found to be with child

through The Holy Spirit.

ShepherdSheep2

Oil Painting of Jesus as (The Good Shepherd)

Well – do we remember about Mary the Mother of Jesus – what has been written in the Holy Bible?  She must have been a remarkable young woman.  Maybe only around sixteen years of age.  I don’t think she would have been out drinking and doing drugs like some young people (and older ones) are doing now in this world that we live in.

If we could put ourselves in Mary’s shoes – whatever would we think, how would we cope with our everyday living knowing as she did that God had planted His one and only Son into her womb?  Also she was engaged to be married, imagine telling her husband to be what had happened to her.

It could not have been easy for her.

If you are a man reading this your thoughts may have been the same as Joseph who she was engaged to – until of course the Angel told him what had happened.

So you see there is quite a lot to consider when we think of Mary – the Mother of our Lord Jesus who is my Saviour and I pray  that He is yours too.

As it is now getting near to Christmas I believed this would give us food for thought.

* God Bless You over this Christmas Time *

Be Still

Rocky Pool

This “Oil Painting” is of ‘Rocky Pool’ that I painted,     it is in Carnarvon. Western Australia.

***

Psalm 46 verse 10

“Be still and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth”

***

Have you ever sat still for a while and felt the presence of God.  Be still and know.  That is what He wants us to do.  As we sit with the The Holy Spirit how lovely is the presence of God.

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

***

I did hear quite a long time ago that someone asked how could they feel the presence and peace of the Lord as it had never seemed to work even though they sat and waited.

Well….the advise they were given didn’t seem to be very good but they thought they would give it a go.

So that evening they turned off the television, the radio etc., and sat quietly in the lounge room.   They were told to just sit and look around the room, thank the Lord for just being able to sit and look around at what ever was in the room.  Thank Him in their heart for the day, for anyone they had met or for where they had been if they had been out of the house.  To look at their special things in the room remembering if necessary any one who had given them anything that was there.  Just to sit and thank The Lord for the day and for just being able to sit and pray or not to pray but just to sit and be quiet.  No need to get up and rush around, also no need to ask or feel anything -just to sit.

After a while, the person felt such peace sitting alone in the room, something they had never really felt before.

It was a revelation to know that they had not even had to strive and ask for the Presence of The Lord to be with them but in the quietness of their heart they just felt The Peace of The Lord.  It was so lovely they just wanted to stay in what they then knew was the Presence of The Lord.

*** 

The Peace of The Lord is beyond our understanding.

***

 It is lovely to Share the Peace of The Lord –  you are able to do that by just giving someone a HUG.

***

Have a lovely day.

God Bless You.
