Redeem the time ... do not worry ... God IS in control.


One of my fav authors, CS Lewis, wrote this in 1948:
“How are we to live in an atomic age? I am tempted to reply: ‘Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat any night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of chronic pain, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accidents.’
In other words, do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, dear sir or madam, you and all whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going to die in unpleasant ways.
It is perfectly ridiculous to go about whimpering and drawing long faces because the scientists have added one more chance of painful and premature death to a world which already bristled with such chances and in which death itself was not a chance at all, but a certainty.
The first action to be taken is to pull ourselves together. If we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things—praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts—not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about death. They may break our bodies (a microbe can do that) but they need not dominate our minds.

Resting in the only place there is REST ...


 Isaiah 40:28-29 28Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

LIVE in the MOMENT ...


As i was enjoying my morning coffee and farmer's market flowers, i was reminded again that we live in the present ... we only have today ... all things in it are new ... it will then roll over and become tomorrow's memory, never to be savoured in quite the same way again. something that absolutely thrilled us yesterday, may only bring a brief smile today ... so enjoy the newness of this very moment ... live in the present ... it's nice to dust off yesterday's memories to look at - but ENJOY the dust free moment you are in ...

GOD is always waiting for us to seek Him out ...


         .... in the morning when i rise ... give me Jesus ...

grace grace, God's grace ...


"Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."        1 Thessalonians 5:18 ...

my thought is that for those of us who are redeemed by the blood and living daily for Jesus - everything we encounter is there for a purpose ...

a passing shadow ...


 we are only guaranteed  the moment we currently occupy  ... and that is all ... like the grass that grows, then withers ... a mere moment in time ... but GOD, gave us His only Son Jesus - that by believing in Him - we might have more than just that wisp of time ... we can have eternity with Him.

the WHOLE armour of GOD


The day will dawn SOON that sin will be done away with ... we won't be battling each other because of the devil's planted seeds on the earth ... God will totally eradicate it, and we will only know His Presence & love ... sinless ... imagine!  But until that day ... put on the whole armour of God ... 

Ephesians 6:10-18   Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.   Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,  and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;  praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints

Living Word, Unchanging Word, GOD's Word


 in our day and age of untruth passing for truth ... of right being proclaimed wrong ... stay the course, read the bible ... as Billy Graham once said, " “I’ve read the last page of the Bible. It’s all going to turn out all right.” " ...

God's eye is always on His children


 i remind myself that tho' life seems confining at times ... God has the larger - eternal view of all things ... everything will work out according to His perfect plan ... thank you Jesus.

Charles Spurgeon quote:


 Live for Jesus ... live according to the bible ... love others, but don't expect love returned from everyone.  It's sad to say, but some folks hate GOD so much, that it will reflect on those who believe in Him ... Life is short - eternity is long ... live with eternity in mind.

we ALL need that "come to Jesus" moment ... do it today ... before it's too late.

 

“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him."  John 3:16-18

Almost there ...


 "We are not far from home - a moment will bring us there."      Charles Spurgeon.


"Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—  in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."
The Apostle Paul to the Corinthians - text in 1 Corinthians 15:51-53

Jesus paid it all ...


 i have used only my own posters in the last couple of years ... but this one (sorry i do not know who to give credit to) was so powerful - that i need to put it here, as we head towards Easter ... Jesus PAID IT ALL ... none of us can earn entry to heaven ...

blessed from 2000 years ago ...


 i have always loved this verse ... Jesus was blessing me - from 2000 years ago ... i BELIEVE in HIM, i have confessed my sin and need of the salvation that HE bought with HIS blood ... i have not seen HIM, yet i believe in HIM ... therefore, HE blessed me - because HE saw that i would come to faith ... and it's the same for ALL who come to HIM through faith ...

think on these things ...

 


i like the fact that there is "no law" against us behaving this way ... wouldn't that be heaven if we would allow the Spirit to make us a people who behave like this ...

"now for a short time time you have had to be distressed by various trials ... "
BUT wait for that " ... inheritance that is imperishable, uncorrupted,

2021 is all about Jesus


 "LORD, let Your Presence BURN through the pettiness in my soul.  May You find your RESTING PLACE (Isaiah 66:1) in me ... Holy Spirit burn the rubbish away - may i only see GOD opportunities - not imagined slights.  Opinions of others do not matter -- only JESUS matters ... let me walk as a warrior ... in Jesus Name."
