WHATSOEVER is……..

John Henry Kensett is remembered for his legacy of artwork.    He painted many different scenes but his art always, on every canvas , replicates the beauty around him with honesty and perception but always portrays inner stillness and a sense of PEACE  

           Christian Meditation should achieve the same result.   Never intended to be a self-focus or about self- improvement but to focus ‘higher’.  

    Paul’s letter to the Church at Philippi

Phils. 4:8  

 Finally, brethren whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue, if there is anything praiseworthy meditate on these things. 

This is the heart of true biblical meditation and connected to prayer and spirit led Bible reading it is a life enhancer.

            Blessings and Love to All.

SUNRISE

Glorious LIGHT flooded three sides of our house.

Blood-red shafts of sunlight hit the rain-soaked grounds.  

It was awe-inspiringly STUNNING. 

    In my heart a bubble of joy heralded this new day.    Then my spirit was stirred by what is part of an old chorus.  

                                                  ONE HOLY TRUTH

        The Son’s reason for coming forever will remain

        His sacrifice for eternity stays the same,

         His shed blood (a crimson never ending flow} sets human souls FREE. 

         His Cry on the wind resonating with DIVINE LOVE still…calls

       FOLLOW, FOLLOW only ……….

                                                  M E! 

 To God be the Glory,  

                       A-men. 

           Good Morning ALL!

Wednesday Question. Have you ever felt like this?

I have on a couple of mornings this week.

This has been our experience here this winter. Unusually COLD with unseasonable rain. The sun infrequently appeared.  

     Here in our state of Queensland we are accustomed to winter chill but usually the sun rises early and our days are brilliantly sunny and warm.  

      Some claim this is All due to climate change,   Older folks remember a  pattern of winter rains followed closely by no rain or very little in summer or autumn.. 

God is still in control of the weather but in my youth folks prayed to God for HIS Grace and Peace in the midst of it all.

         How do we stay warm and youthful on the INSIDE.  (spiritually speaking).?   There are a lot of remedies involving the creature comforts like a stiff drink!  Or even a gentler action on the liver of a hot chocolate, coffee, or cup of tea.  

          But most times it is vital to be WARMED UP SPIRITUALLY.

               My remedy has been a gentle focus on the WORD.   

I wrote down a short list detailing words that reminded me of the LORD.   LIGHT, LAMP, WAY. BREAD, LIFE, were a starting point.    

   Finding in the WORD of GOD references to these led me on a rich journey that not only activated my mind but warmed me up.   The WORD indeed is a Handbook to enrich our life in all circumstances, 

             That’s why it is not just a book but a LIVING Word that can pierce our hearts.  Ephs 6:17 reminds us it is the SWORD of the Spirit ever reminding us of WHO our Lord is.    

        I warmed up and SUNSHINE now is in my heart. 

       Blessings!   

           A campfire is cheerful summer. Winter, autumn and spring.

Then the poem as it was written stands true. The weather outside is frightful but the fire is quite belightful.

A gentle SUNDAY Thought

                                     Follow ME.   I AM THE WAY

                                                                                         Jesus Christ

     The best things in this life are ‘nearest’,   breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand and the certainty of knowing the path of God before you.   

           Robert Louis Stevensen

Jesus’ invitation leads to ETERNITY.

The poet Stevenson ‘s life reflected his certainty of Jesus as the author and finisher of all beauty and life.

Live abundantly and enjoy ALL His… Jesus Christ’s creative works.

Blessings and Love

ETERNAL CREATOR

  The elderly man grieved over the ‘losses’ in his life. -friends, the prestige he once knew in his former job now new losses in personal health failures and even to face now the death of his spouse and one of his children.

         He knew God was with him.   He had walked with him through many years. Still he grieved. Losses loomed as greater than anything even with the Promises of eternity ahead. Still he grieved.

          Suddenly, he was aware of the sunlight of the new morning dancing with diamond sparkles on the tree branches outside the window.

          A clear and sharp reminder came into his thinking. He gained new strength to get up and explore life.

  OUR GOD IS THE Creator of ALL THINGS AND HIS CREATIVITY WILL NEVER END.

      This then is my prayer for us today.   Let us find His creativity in every leaf or petal on a flower. Let us determine to show and bless others to experience ongoing creative life.

       Rejoice and be Glad!

       KNOW His life force is sacred in you and in this world around us all.

       Let your EYES be open.

        Your EARS listening

          And your HEART receptive,

  God will never cease His cycle of creativity.

          R E J O I C E!

Genisis: 1:31

Psalm 8:1-8

An Almost OCTOGENARIAN gives thanks.

Thank you to all my friends and family who blessed me with messages and love on my

birthday yesterday. Thank YOU!

Thank God for His Presence and ongoing Strength on THE WAY ahead.

The image of the little girl reminds us all that once we were young but all of us will age if we are granted the privilege of walking onwards. However, changes is us while visible externally, will be accompanied by internal spiritual changes.

IF,,,,,,,,

If we make the CHOICE to accept the WAY of following the only ONE who came to be the blood-soaked bridge to eternity. (Spiritually) Then, His Presence accompanies us.

THANK YOU SAVIOUR LORD. YOU ARE THE ONLY UNCHANGING ONE.

THE WORD from Genesis to REVELATIONS must also be seen as the Handbook for LIFE IN ALL ITS FULLNESS.

Love, Repentance, Forgiveness and GRAC E all along the WAY.

THANKSGIVING SUNDAY…..for the One who is THE WAY! THE TRUTH! and THE LIFE!

PEACE…… BE ….STILL!

        When THE PRINCE of PEACE speaks the very elements are gentled.  

     I love the Gospel Song.   Troubled waters.

         It sometimes takes a mountain or facing troubled seas.  It sometimes takes a desert valley to get a hold of me. 

       BUT.  HIS LOVE is so much STRONGER than whatever troubles me.  I take His Hand and journey onwards.

           TRUST HIM and Believe!

                     This is my TRUTH.      

                     Peace is our legacy…….   

Thank You Saviour Lord.   I worship YOU!

AN UNCOMPLICATED SALVATION MESSAGE

KISS. A DIVINE LOVE…law. Keep it Simple Saint

Follow Me 9nto ETERNITY

Prayer -A conversation between a Redeemed Child with Father. in their native language or in their Kingdom Language.

The Simple Message. Jesus Christ came to Earth as SAVIOUR of all human souls.

END OF LIFE LEGACY of FAITH STATEMENTS

My dying friend to all the assembled family and praying friends. “Don’t worry about me. ‘I’m GOING HOME!

The Bushman in the paddock dying to his son. “Don’t grieve for me, my child. My best Mate in Heaven will come to take me home.’

Paramedic to dying woman ‘Are you OK?’. “Yes she replied.’I KNOW HIM.’ Are you ok?. \

In that Emergency Room two nurses and a doctor confessed their sins and accepted the simple message her husband shared with them. JESUS SAVES!

Blessings and love to you all as we continue to STAND and walk with HIM on this narrow WAY of THE CROSS.

A MID-WEEK THOUGHT ON PRAYER

Alfred Lord Tennyson, POET. wrote,,,,, More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.

Psalm 116:1-2

I love the Lord because He hears my prayers and answers them. Because He bends down and listens. I will pray as long as I breathe!

Talk to Father like a little child.

LET US PRAY!
