The above is an ‘Oil Painting” of a Vision that someone had.
Leviticus: Chapter 19 verses 1-2
The LORD said to Moses,
Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them:
‘Be holy because –
I, The LORD your God, am Holy.’
Today we need to be reminded of this – we need to be holy because the LORD our God is Holy. How can we do this you may well ask? Possibly in lots of ways but one thing we can do, is to try to keep ourselves from the evils of this world.
God has called us to be Holy.
That means we are set aside for Him. Let us try to stay that way for The LORD our God each day.
The above is taken from book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by. J.M.R. Larman.
We can only take one day at a time while we live on this earth to try to be Holy.
We are not that clever to be able to do this by ourselves.
We need the help of The Holy Spirit to help guide us each day.
Really when you think about it this can only happen if we are a Christian, so we best become one and get on with it.
So, you may say that is not very holy to talk like that but it is the truth and in the Bible it says ‘the truth will set you free’ Therefore for us to be holy it is an on going thing. We don’t like to not be able to do some of the worldly things. However, we should really try to obey the Ten Commandments that were give to Moses. If you are not sure what they are they can be found in your Holy Bible……if you do not happen to have one…….then maybe look on Google because there you can find most things.
Today let us hopefully not get really cross with anyone and upset them, let us not swear or steal or commit different kinds of crime. Let us try to love our neighbour as ourselves (that is one of the Commandments) I am not going to list them here because if you want to be Holy then it is up to you to try, no-one else can do that for you.
Please let us remember to Pray and ask God our Heavenly Father to allow The Holy Spirit to help us as we walk in truth and love with Jesus our Lord.
* I pray that you have a lovely Holy Day today *

Kingfisher – Oil Painting by J.M.R. Larman.
Galatians: Chapter 1 verse 3
Grace and peace to you
from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is lovely today to know the grace and peace that can only come from God and Jesus. If you have a spare minute right now, sit and receive that wonderful peace, remember – ask and you shall receive.
Taken from book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
Have you ever just sat quietly on your own to try to receive that peace that comes from God our Heavely Father. It is worth a try – after all what can you loose when you find time to sit without the tele on or the radio on or any of the family around.
It can seem quite odd
if you have never sat quietly
on your own
but it is worth a try.
If you are indoors – sit in your favourite chair, if you are outside maybe in the garden find somewhere to sit on your own. Wherever you decide to be – look around where you are and begin to feel the peace in your heart even if it is only for a few minutes.
Try to sit a little longer, all the chores of the day will not run away, they will still be there for you to do. So treat yourself to a bit of quiet time to receive the Grace and Peace of The Lord.
Have a lovely Day.
(The Peace of The Lord is beyond our understanding)
