Faith enhances VISUAL PERSPECTIVE

   There’s not a tint that paints the rose

            Or decks the lily fair,

    Or marks the humblest flower that grows,

            But God has placed it there………

    There’s not a place on earth’s vast round,

             In ocean’s deep or air,

     Where love and beauty are not found,

              For God is everywhere. 

  (To the unknown writer I say Thank you.   This is my TRUTH also)

    Tarsha was a dearly loved cat who blessed our lives for 20 years.  She was buried on a bank beneath a tree.  I planted a small vine but knew the encroaching bush would probably overwhelm it.   One morning after rain, I took the above picture. It was a moment of pure joy because the small flowers had struggled against severe odds to burst out as a tribute to Tarsha.    

       I will keep watering when necessary and maybe again one day!

        When you have faith in the Saviour of human souls God’s amazing world will continue always to bring surprises of love and beauty.   

    Let’s keep our eyes open today.  The possibilities during even times of brokenness and strife are endless.   

 Blessings!

NO MORE THAN A HONEY BEE CAN CARRY

Of the heavenly things God has shown me, I can speak but a little word, no more than a honey-bee can carry away on its feet – into an overflowing jar. 

Mechtild of Magdeburg (a mediaeval  Christian woman writer) penned in the 14th century.

Oh the depths of the riches and Wisdom and Knowledge of God………

How unsearchable are His Judgments and how inscrutable His Ways.      Romans :11:33   

HIS DIVINE LOVE is BEYOND All human ability to measure.  

GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT- The Spirit of DIVINE W I S D O M ever leads us to  Christ and His atoning death on the CROSS.

             Have a blessed day!

FOCUS ADJUSTMENT NEEDED

Sometimes, like a child learning to ride a bicycle we as mature Christians still need to adjust our focus in life, so we stay focussed on the way ahead and not become distracted by the many loud and strident interruptions.

          Thoughts of the past must be surrendered to the ONE who holds our future and it must only be to love, comfort, and care for fellow travellers in THE WAY that we move our attention from our journey onwards.  

           Paul had a lot of distractions, attempts to kill, or capture him.  Perhaps he, suffered from memories of past sins and was haunted by Stephen’s face as he was being stoned to death, 

        Despite all this he could write to the Church at Philippi.       Phils: 3:13

‘Now, I focus on this one thing forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.’   

       Christ died to give us an abundant life.  Let’s focus onwards with HIM.

A PROGRESSIVE PROMISE

       Isaiah 41 v10  N.K.J.

Fear not, for I am with you,

                     Be not distressed, I am Your God. 

I will strengthen you, 

Yes, I will help you.  

I will uphold you with My righteous right Hand.  

  This ancient Promise is fulfilled for us in the New Covenant cut at Calvary.    

              In Christ…His Presence is with us.

  1.        His voice and assurance that HE is there.  I Will help you 

           But then as His Beloved redeemed child.

      He moves closer.      He extends His Hand.

     Take His Hand (Spiritually)  

 Beloved Lord Lead me/us  Onwards.

              a-men!!

FOLLOWED BY SPIRITUALLY LIGHT?

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

       Lord

    Forever.

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?

    Loving thoughts on this Sunday.

An Enriching Moment

BE STILL AND KNOW I AM GOD.

Hampton Court Palace England.    Tourists with cameras everywhere.     All eyes are focussed on the beautiful palace stonework when I looked towards the nearby waterway.

       I saw the white swan swim past.   I moved closer and took this simple picture.  

        I heard in my heart and spirit the words ‘Be still and KNOW that I am God!’ PSM.46v10

        I continued that day enjoying all the fascinating historical touristy adventures.

        However, for me something remained deeply entrenched in my heart.  

       One day I collected all the meditations and prayers from the Word of God concerning PEACE I had written, and this became a book.    It was meant to be a tool of comfort and I thank God that I was able to place some copies in a few places of need – an emergency waiting room. and in a breast-cancer radiation unit.    

         The cover touched and brought comfort simply ‘seeing PEACE’ 

          ONLY GOD!

           Father, I worship you this day for your amazing PEACE. 

           YOU ARE THE PRINCE OF PEACE!

           Thank you.     A-men.

Burning Coals

Devotional Treasures

“But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.”

Romans 12:20 (NASB)

I remembered this verse recently in conversations regarding folk making my life difficult; I used to apply this very badly as a young Christian, weilding it as a weapon of vengeance. I must confess there is still a side in me that loves being nice to those who are not nice; such as that person who ignores me will suddenly find me smiling at them and engaging them in conversation. Sometimes it works well and in other times it doesn’t work at all. This is “heaping burning coals on someone.”

The above verse is a quote from Proverbs 25:21-22 in the Old Testament, and is further elaborated upon by…

Memories and Challenges.

Yesterday one year ago our much loved daughter went HOME to GOD.

We remembered. The past and the future challenges of our own lives somehow intersected.

My Memoir Shafts of God was published and I had a ream of paperwork and ongoing necessary stuff to sort. Dave took a personal video and though unsure if it will attach here I will try. It was unplanned but somehow it was done.

God in the ongoing cycle of life does give amazing Grace and Strength.

I send Love and Blessings today on the airwaves of this butterfly cycle of life. \

May God Be with you!

A-men.

LIBERATED BY FULL TRUTH ABOUT GOD’S GIFTS

AM I A WITCH?

        Lack of proper teaching in my youth about GOD the HOLY SPIRIT caused me a lot of uncertainty.   His Divine Gifts need to be correctly explained from the WORD.     The enemy of our souls is a devious counterfeiter.      

         Many continue to be drawn into the dark when the true Light of God. Father, Son and Holy Spirit is not taught in fullness correctly.     

         Even people close to me as a child brushed my experiences aside as being a ‘creative child.’      How do you explain to an adult when you have actually SEEN something?      How do you tell a Pastor you Know something. If his answer is ‘What did you have for breakfast, dear? ‘

         This was the story of my life and I had journeyed far through it before I truly came to understand that our GOD is the creator of ALL THINGS.   

            Satan and the dark forces cannot create only IMITATE.       The original comes from God and All His Gifts ever point to Jesus Christ as SAVIOUR.      

            I thank God I have finished my memoir Shafts of Gold.    If only one younger person learns quickly this TRUTH about the Spirit’s Purpose in this world more will stop seeking and find their spiritual HOME in HIM……ONE DIVINE ENTITY before the Book of Revelations comes to its fulfillment.

 Blessings and Love to All travelling and willing to learn continuously on this journey.
