A Golden Message From Heaven

Rommie stopped by last night to deliver a message to those of us who are struggling with various adversities. Rommie embraced life every day. She lived out Psalm 118:24

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

She rejoiced and was glad every day, despite having hip issues. Every day was a beautiful day to play ball, chase squirrels off her fence and bite skunks on the rear end.

So wherever you are and what ever skunk (grief, divorce, unemployment) is spraying you remember

Life is beautiful2

May your day be filled with lots of love, hugs and sloppy wet kisses.

52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled Year – Week 17

Good Sunday to you.

This week I decided to publish the entire section, as I believe it will help you understand this week’s verse. The actual verse for this week is in bold.

I don’t have too much to write as I am too focused on my upset stomach.

May God  work this verse mightily in our lives this week.

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

Ephesians 10-20

(NIV)

 

Weekend Wisdom

Weekend Wisdom is back.

This is a series I started shortly after launching this blog. I was trying to publish a post 7 days a week and decided that finding uplifting poems, quotes and scripture would be an easy way to come up with posts two days every week.

Today’s quote comes from The Undistracted Widow by Carol W. Cornish. In the book she quotes A. W. Pink

There are seasons in the lives of all when it is not easy, not even for Christians, to believe that God is faithful. Our faith is sorely tried, our eyes dimmed with tears, and we can no longer trace the out working of His love. 

Though you cannot now harmonize God’s mysterious dealings with the avowals of His love, wait on Him for more light. In His own good time He will make it plain to you.

The Nature of God

We are human, so we are not perfect. Therefore we will have a hard time believing God is faithful. While my grief over Joe’s passing is mostly gone, my frustration with rebuilding my career is in high gear. But it too will be resolved in God’s time not mine.

Though your eyes be like mine – tired and filled to the brim with tears,

remember

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

Romans 8:32
