Who is following you in beauty and with sanctifying intentions?
Psm 23 v 5,6,7 FOLLOWING THE SHEPHERD (Saviour)
You prepare a table before me in the
presence of my enemies,
You anoint my head with oil,
My cup runs over,
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life.
And I will dwell in the house of the
Tommy called out to me. ‘Mrs R. I’m scared. I told everyone in my class I had accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour. My big sister tells me Jesus is the Good Shepherd. She said goodness and Miss Murphy are going to follow me all the days of my life now.’
Miss Murphy was his very strict early Primary School teacher. ‘Please help me to escape. ‘
I tried to explain the difference between mercy and Miss Murphy.
He went away happier,
In more recent days I read a devotion where goodness and mercy were likened to two ministering angels goodness and mercy. They follow us through life as God the Holy Spirit continues His sanctifying Purpose to make us like Jesus Christ.
Are we being followed by a Light of Holiness? Who is following you?
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
I surely do hope & pray the Light follows me like Peter Pan’s shadow, but sticks and stays put without any stitching needed. 😊
I always thought Shirley Goodness was one of the people who were going to follow me! 😂
Glad it wasn’t Mrs. Murphy! ❤️&🙏, c.a.
