Good Morning and Happy Tuesday,

      As I got dressed this morning, preparing for my primary care appointment, I realized that I have been going to the Doctor for two years.  So much time, money and discomfort, and yet I am worse off physically then the first day I saw her.  No it is not her fault but yet is discouraging to spend so much money and to have tried countless different medication and no improvement. While I am waiting on the last biopsy report hoping for a diagnosis that will show what medication, I should be on, my frustration grows.   We as Christians, can often feel that way.  It seems that we have spent countless hours down in the valley and yet our souls do not seem to have improved as much as we would have thought they should.  It can seem that we have wasted so much time and still not be where we think we should be, spiritually. Living in our bodies we cannot see the journey of our lives, as God sees it.   We often cannot see the growth that has taken place.   When our children were small we often did not really notice the growth in statue, until we noticed that the clothes that fit so well in September, in June are tight and too short.  Just like that, we often cannot see the spiritual growth in our lives, but that does not mean it does not exist.  We must step back from ourselves and rejoice not in our spiritual growth, but in the journey God has taken us on.   Realizing as we look back that the pain that we went through though hard and depressing at the time, has brought us to a new wonderful place in the Lord.  This is why God has told us through Paul, to rejoice in all things.  It is not about thanking God that you had a blow out or thanking God that you are going through physical challenges.  It is thanking God that He has you on a path of spiritual growth and reminding yourself, that through all of it God is with you.  If you feel that you have made no spiritual growth in a while, ask God to show you where you were and where you are today.  If there is truly no growth, then ask God for forgiveness and ask Him to begin a new work in you.  We can grow stagnant and disobedience can cause our growth to come to a stop.  Seek the face of God and ask for ways that you can be open to His leading.  Do not be come complacent in these last hours of the Church Age.  Jesus is coming back soon.  Are you ready?  Do you need to seek forgives from God for hidden sins?   Do you need to seek forgives from others?  Let us feel our oil bottles and be like the wise virgins and be ready and waiting for His return.

Saw tiny squirrels in the yard.  Already getting warm.  I look forward to fall weather.  The change of Seasons show us that contrary to what the world thinks, God is still involved in our world.

Good Morning and Happy Monday,

      Today is August first.  Today parents of young children are starting to get excited about School restarting.  Teachers are saddened to see their vacation coming to the end.  Those of us in the South, are looking forward to the fall and cooler weather.  There are many times of the year that we look forward too.  Those who have a party and a big celebration look forward to Halloween.  Americans look forward to Thanksgiving, the biggest travel day, when family gets together around the Thanksgiving table.  Most of us look forward to Christmas.  Young children look forward to presents and parents to the decorations that brighten the cold dark winter.
Christians and non Christians look forward to the New Year.  Around the world, the New Year, the time that gives people hope of a new beginning and a "start over", if you will.   Yet as hard as we try most New Year resolutions are broken and just a memory by March.
              There is only one who can promise a new beginning, a new birth, and that is Jesus.   We do not have to wait until January first, to begin again in the Name of Jesus. He wants us to be born again in Him, and we can do that any day or night.

       John 3:16King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
     Romans 10: 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.


  To God's children, God calls us to come to Him for forgiveness, refreshing, and guidance.   God does not save our souls and walk away.  He doesn't send us in our way with a platitude of "have a great life, see you in Heaven".  God wants to walk with us everyday.  He wants us to trust in Him and seek His truths.   Is it possible to get saved and never seek the face of God?  I honestly do not know, but if we did, we would remain a baby Christian till the day we died.  We would have no rewards in Heaven for we would have lived a selfish life.  Doing good deeds only to receive the praise of man.  Let us walk with Jesus daily.  Seek to grow into a mature Christian.  Seek His ways in all things.  Let us as children who love our Heavenly Father, live out our lives until the end so that we may face our death with the words of Paul.

        2 Timothy 4: 6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
 
    As Christians we are now looking forward to another prophecy to take place, the rapture.   As we look with hopeful eyes for His return, let us strife to work for Jesus and allow Him to work through us.  Be blessed my friends, even in this days of turmoil and distrust, for God has not gone on vacation, neither is He sleeping.  Things are falling into place just as Jesus said they would.  This is the time to seek his face more then we have ever done.

The humming birds have almost emptied their feeders.  It is emptying  quickly.  We too as God's children are being empty by living in this world.  Go to Jesus daily for a renewal and a refilling.

Good Morning and Blessed Sunday,

                       Psalm 36:7-9.  7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

      When we have suffered for a length of time, whether emotional, physically, or both, we tend to run away from what we need most.  Humans have a tendency to want to crawl into themselves when they suffer.  What we really need is God and to be among the people of God.  While it is great for us to sing praises to God every day, on our own, there is a extra bonus if you will, from praising God together with a group of believers.  As we magnify the Name of our Lord and Savior, even in our troubles we are revived by group worship.  The more time that passes from our last night in Church, the easier it gets to stay home.  Yet, when we go we wonder why we did not choose to attend sooner.  There is a reason Paul said that in the last days do not neglect the gathering of yourselves with fellow Christians.  Not only do we need the fellowship but we need to be hearing the Word of God spoken to us.  I often listen to preaching on the radio but there is a specialness about being fed in the house of God.  The call on our hearts should be: "Come let us worship together".

   Betty

Good Morning and Happy Saturday,

           As I walked around the front and back yard putting out feed for the birds and squirrels, this morning, as I do most mornings, I looked up at the sky and asked God, if this was the day He is coming back for His children.  I admit, because of having 4 health issues and my age sometimes my cry for His return, is for selfish issues.  I am looking for my new body, free from disease and pain.  Yet, there are many morning like this morning when my heart is yearning just to be in the very presence of my Lord and Savior.  To be able to kiss the scars that Jesus suffered for my salvation and thank Him as I look in His eyes.  What a day that will be for all Christians.  Paul tells us in God's Word, that God wants His children to yearn with hopeful hearts for the return of Jesus.  There is even a crown rewarded to those who long for the return of Jesus.
It is not selfish to yearn for the return of Jesus.  As we wait though, we must use our time wisely.  Praying for the lost, sharing the love of Jesus with those you meet each day and asking Jesus to use you for His glory. 

    Today as you go about your day ask God to bring to your mind, those you should pray for.  With the Lord's help seek to live each day in a way that is pleasing to our Heavenly Father.  When you do act in a way that is not pleasing to God, seek forgiveness from God and anyone you might have hurt.  In a rush rush world,
it is easy to let unkind words slip though your lips.  Always swallow your pride and apologize.  Most of the time people will be shocked that you took the time to apologize and be gracious.  There will be those times that your apology will not be accepted, just move on and pray for that person.  Remember hurting people are not always able to accept apologies and may incapable of forgives.  In the world today there are people who have given their hearts and souls to evil.   They are not capable of love.  Do not interact with these kinds of people anymore then you have to.  Their hearts are cold and evil and they will not accept kindness and love.  Pray and leave these in the hands of God.  There comes a time when people have embraced evil and rejected God to the point that God has allowed them to go into perversions and their own destruction.  As evil as the words that pours out of their evil hearts much more evil is deep into their hearts and souls.   The less time you are around these poor souls the better.
Betty
Have a blessed day and enjoy those you love and seek ways to share your love with others.
