We are not Alone !
John: Chapter 16 verse 31
……… Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.
As Christians we know that God our Father is with us. When Jesus went back to Heaven He sent His Holy Spirit to be with us – to teach, comfort and also to fellowship with us. Where The Holy Spirit is, there also are The Father and The Son. Just think how blessed we are – we are never alone!
(You may like to check out what the Word says in your Bible of the Scripture above)
Well now – how about that? What do you think about being alone, do you think sometimes that you really are alone? Well even if we think that, sometimes we should remember that God our Heavenly Father can see us just where we are. If we are feeling lonely, sad, miserable and on our own, maybe we need to remember what the above verse says, whether we believe it or not as Christians The Holy Spirit of Jesus is always with us as He promised when He went back to Heaven.
So let us not be downcast or feel too lonely today, put on a happy face, dance and sing, talk to the dog (or cat) or whatever your pet maybe – if you have one. If not maybe put on some Christian music – the devil does not like that – because he has to flee away from you and from your loneliness… make a nice Cup of drink, have something to eat – to cheer you up.
A good idea is to phone a friend if you are really feeling very lonely, just to talk for a while makes a lot of difference to yourself and maybe also to the friend you are phoning. It is good to think of others in your circle of family and friends who maybe so pleased to hear your voice on the phone.
Hopefully your loneliness will just disappear, then you can Praise The Lord for His love toward you and begin to thank Him for all the Blessings He has given and will be giving you. (That goes for me as well) !
I hope you have a lovely day today – you may like to check out this Link for ‘Drink from the Cup’ book that the above Bible reading came from.
Walk in Love
2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6
And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.
Yes you are a God of Love and to love you means just what the above verse says – that we walk in obedience to your ways. We can only do that when we have invited Jesus into our lives and we live in your Kingdom on this earth. Praise you Heavenly Father that you enable us to walk in obedience today.
It may seem odd to think that to walk in Love with the Lord is to walk in Obedience to Him. The only way really that we can do that is to read our Holy Bible to see how! It is good to read part of the Bible each day – part of the New Testament of course but not to neglect reading part of the old Testament. Just a small bit each day is better than not at all. You could of course read one of the Psalms sometimes for something different to read. It is always special to find a quiet time during the day to sit and read even a few verses of a Psalm.
I hope you have a lovely day trying to walk in Love with your family and friends so that you know that you are walking in Obedience with God – because that shows that you Love Him our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and The Holy Spirit. (The Holy Spirit will help us to be obedient if we ask Him to)

We are not alone.
John: Chapter: 16 verse 31
……..Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.
As Christians we know that God our Father is with us.
When Jesus went back to Heaven He sent His Holy Spirit to be with us – to teach, comfort and also to fellowship with us.
Where The Holy Spirit is, there also are The Father and The Son.
Just think how blessed we are – we are never alone!
From ‘Drink from the Cup’ book., by J.M.R.Larman.
So if you are feeling lonely today, stop and think for a while, make a cup of coffee, tea or a favourite drink. Then sit quietly and thank The Lord for all the Blessings that He has allowed and is giving us each day.
Let us think do we have food and shelter, are we blessed with a Husband, Wife and children or good friends or even a special Pet that we can rely on and talk to when we need help or a shoulder to cry on.
Well we may have so many Blessings that is is difficult to count them all and yet………we still feel lonely.
Why oh! why do we feel like that ?……
While we sit quietly let us remember that Jesus must have felt very lonely at times when people did not understand Him. Sometimes He went off to a special place to pray on His own to His Father in Heaven until He felt better about things…….Jesus who’s Father is in Heaven is also our Father who we can go to at any time of the day or night if we are a Christian.
So let us try not to be lonely today, talk to The Holy Spirit and ask Him to comfort you and guide you out of that feeling of loneliness into the Joy of The Lord. Maybe put on some cheerful music – remember we need the Spirit of Praise for the Spirit of Heaviness. Then the spirit of loneliness will begin to go away and we can get on with our day in a cheerful way.
Maybe have another Cuppa!!!!!!!!!!!!
* Have a lovely Day Today *
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.

Are we Humble?
1 Peter: Chapter 5 verse 6
therefore, under God’s mighty hand,
that He may lift you up in due time.
Do you realize that when we do humble ourselves, to God – He does lift us up out of what ever situation we are in. If only we would remember and pray more humbly and quickly when we are in a difficult situation we shall be delivered out of it much sooner.
Taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
So are we HUMBLE – WHAT DOES IT MEAN? –
Well it could mean being modest, meek, respectful, also other things of course.
But to start off with it makes us think – are we being respectful of our elders, our friends and especially respectful of our own children and brothers and sisters?
It is not easy to be HUMBLE – we cannot always easily be MEEK, we want things our own way, likewise how about being MODEST?. Modest could mean to dress appropriately for whatever circumstances we are going to be in for the day. To be clean and tidy in our appearance. Also not to show off parts of our body in an unholy way. To show respect for other peoples feelings.
Let us be humble enough to listen while others talk to us, not to keep interrupting and putting words into their mouths. Wait to hear what they are really saying – not what we think they are saying……we may even learn something from them.
Today: let us practice being HUMBLE
Have a lovely day today – may The Lord Jesus help us all to be more humble in our daily living…..that of course means myself as well as other Christians.
* GOD BLESS YOU *
