Good Afternoon and Happy Friday,

                       Did you wake up in physical pain this morning?  Are there problems in your life related to your job, finances, or your marriage?  Is there a strained relationship with you and a friend or a relative?  Most likely you could say yes to one or more of these questions?  The devil would love to use your circumstances to convince you that God doesn't care about you or the devil would even imply to us that God has forsaken us.  What do we do in these time?

             We go to God's Holy Word.  We read about how throughout time God's people had times when they felt deserted,  but God was with them always.  You might say that you do not feel the presence of God at the moment.  Yes there are times, that we can't feel the presence of God, but our relationship is not based on feelings.  Our relationship with God is based on the truth of God's Word and our faith. 

       We must not judge our relationship with God on feelings.  Feelings come and go.  Sometimes we are up and sometimes we are down, but God's love for us is consistent.  Yes, we sin and we seek forgiveness from God when we do.  God's love is strong for us even when we sin. 

     Remember the devil is the father of lies.  Reject his voice that whispers in your ears lies and discouragement.   Instead trust in the God, who sent His Only Son to die for yours and mine, sins.
Seek God face in the midst of pain and troubles.  Praise His Name in the middle of life's storms.  Trust in God in the middle of the battle. 

                               
Romans 14:8King James Version (KJV)8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.

        For whether we live or die we are in God's protection.   Fear not my friends.  Our future is secure in God our Heavenly Father.

Psalm 18:6, “In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice”
__________

A poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store. She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries. She softly explained that her husband was unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food. John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store. Visualizing the family needs, she said: "Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can." John told her he could not give her credit, as she did not have a charge account at his store.

Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation between the two. The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family. The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, "Do you have a grocery list?" Louise replied, "Yes sir."  "O.K." he said, "put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries." Louise, hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.

The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down. The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, "I can't believe it." The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance. So he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more. The grocer stood there in utter disbelief.

Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement. It was not a grocery list. It was a prayer which said:  "Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands".  The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence. Louise thanked him and left the store. The customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said, "It was worth every penny of it." Only God Knows how much a prayer weighs.

Further thoughts:

I read some time ago about a machine repairman who had an unusual knack for correctly diagnosing where the trouble was in faulty factory equipment; wherein, he could fix it quickly. His co-workers noticed that he normally left the lunchroom 10 minutes early. One day someone followed him to see what he did before the others started working again.

The repairman didn’t touch a wrench or screwdriver. Instead, while everyone else was gone and there was no sound of conversation, he stood in the middle of the large room, closed his eyes, and listened to the machinery. His ear caught every subtle sound, every click, every change in pitch or vibration. He could identify the first signs of a problem before it became apparent to others. It’s as if he knew each machine personally.

My beloved, God knows us personally and intimately. He monitors our thoughts and feelings all the time. As King David declared, we can be sure that when we cry out to Him in prayer, He hears us (Psalm 18:6). He hears the shouts and the groans of our hearts. He knows when we are “broken” or “out of tune,” And when we call on Him, He knows exactly what we need.

Facing a problem today? Cry out to the Lord, You can be sure that He will hear you just as He heard the prayer of the woman in the above story.

God’s help is only a prayer away.

Good Afternoon and Happy Thursday,

          My dear friends,  are we still looking for our diamonds of joy throughout the day?  Yesterday, Bertha (my dog) and I were walking to get the mail, and I glanced up at the sky, and the clouds and colors were refreshingly beautiful.  I stopped walking and thanked Jesus for the beautiful view.  We can find refreshments in every day, if we open our eyes and look for them.

        God is so good to us and He will bring little diamonds of joy into every day, if we ask for them.
George Strait has a song called: "I Saw God Today". We can see God in the little things and the big things if we look.  The devil will seek to discourage us, so we turn to God and we ask for encouragement from Him.

           Along with looking for our diamonds of joy, let us look for ways to encourage others.  Be a ray of sunshine to those we come in contact with throughout the day.  Pray for one another.  When we read of someone who is struggling, pray for them.  We do not have to know someone to pray for them.   God knows them.  Ask for prayer from others, when we have a need.    Share life's  joys and struggles with other Christians.  Rejoice in our little diamonds of joy and look forward to the blessed hope, when Jesus comes for His own.

Betty

Isaiah 45:3, “And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness—secret riches. I will do this so you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name”
__________

Today I want to share with you a poem that I came across this past week written by Nancy Elftman regarding treasures that we can enjoy right now.  In this beautiful poem she talks about gold, diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and topaz. I trust that you will be blessed by this simple poem that is so true, if we only open our eyes.

The gold that You promised me came today
Though I’ve never quite thought of gold that way.
But this morning while combing my daughter’s blond hair
The sun kissed it, Lord, and I found it there.

And diamonds, my God, I have found all around
From the stars in the sky to the snow on the ground.
And sapphires, dear Lord, in my baby’s blue eyes…
I see them twinkle – what a nice surprise!

Emeralds abound on a carpet of green
As Spring brings more jewels than I’ve ever seen.
Rubies and topaz, there in a flower
And I grow richer, Lord, hour by hour.

I found all these riches right here on earth
Your love gave me wisdom to know their worth,
And Your blessed Spirit gave me vision to see
That I have more treasure than I’d dreamed could be.

I’m glad You gave them to me in this form
Treasures like this are living and warm,
I’ll not lock them up – they’re for all to see
And no their on earth can take them from me!
__________

Further reflection:

If you are a believer in Christ, we as His children, have so much more for which to give our praise and thankfulness to the LORD. My beloved, thankfulness is an attitude of gratitude that ought to be a characteristic of every person (Psalm 34:1) who has put their trust and faith in the living and risen Savior.

Our life will take on a much different perspective when we spend time counting our blessings and looking for those treasures.  They are there; however, we’re too preoccupied with other things of the day and miss them. So, my beloved let’s pause for a few minutes throughout our busy day to think about the abundance God has so graciously showered upon us  ... those treasures in the above poem are there and waiting to be seen by you.

Closing thought:

"One of heaven's pleasures will be to share our earthly stories"

Good Afternoon and Happy Wednesday,

                            If the temperature was 99 (occurs too often in Texas😛) and you saw your neighbor mowing, dressed in a snow suit, you would be shocked.  You most likely would run and check on your neighbor to see if they had had a stroke or something that effected  his mind.
Yet, we as Christians often do battle with satan, without the armor that God has provided for us.

       We get into spiritual arguments without studying the Word of God.  Not preparing for such a battle, can leave us wounded and our own faith weakened.  Not only do we come out the loser but we can turn people away from God instead of towards God. This doesn't have to be.  Studying God's Word should be a regular part of our day.

Ephesians 6:11-18King James Version (KJV)11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

              We must remember the devil often uses people to battle us.  The devil wants to cause to lose faith in God.  We need to be dressed for battle every day.  The devil does not warn us, ahead of a battle.  He sends arrows out from nowhere in attempt to cause us to backslide.  He will use strangers, coworkers, and even family members to attack us.  We must not give in.   While we fight in love, we must fight but we do not have to fight unprepared, nor do we have to fight alone. Pray every morning that God will help you be equipped for what ever the devil brings your way.

         We are close to the end of the battle my friends.   Let us press on, remembering that victory is just in sight. When discourage comes go to God.  Soon, Jesus is combing for His children.  Keep your focus on Jesus.  Everything we suffer down here, will be rewarded in Heaven.
Betty
