His Joy...And Ours
Always be filled with Joy in the Lord. I say it again--rejoice! Philipians 4:4
Christ made it clear; He intends that His joy should become our joy. Yet sometimes, amid the inevitable hustle and bustle of life-here-on-earth, we can forfeit--albeit temporarily--the joy of Christ as we wrestle with the daily challenges of living. Billy Graham correctly observed, "When Jesus Christ is the source of our joy, no words can describe it." And C.S. Lewis noted that, "Joy is the serious business of Heaven." So here's a prescription for better spiritual health: Open the door of your soul to Christ. When you do, He will give you peace and joy. When I think of God, my heart is so full of joy that the notes leap and dance as they leave my pen; and since God has given me a cheerful heart, I can serve Him with a cheerful spirit. Have a great day. Thank God and thank you.
Grow a wise heart--you'll do yourself a favor; keep a clear head--you'll find a good life. Proverbs 19:8

The World's Best Friend
Greater love has no one that this, that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
Who's the best friend this world has ever had? Jesus, of course! When you invite Him into your hear, Jesus will be your friend, too...your friend forever. Jesus has offered to share the gifts of everlasting love with the world..and with life and everlasting love wit the world..and with you. If you make mistakes, He'll still be your friend. If you behave badly, He'll still love you. If you feel sorry or sad, He can help you feel better. Jesus wants you to have a happy, healthy happy life. He wants you to be generous and kind. He wants you to follow His example. And the rest is up to you. You can do it! And with a friend like Jesus, you will. The dearest friend on earth is but a mere shadow compared with Jesus Christ.
Even zeal is not good without knowledge, and the one who acts hastily sins. Proverbs 19:2.
Seriously..this is the best thing in the world. I have put Jesus 1st and life gets so much better. Through everything God gets you through. Amen. Have a great day. Thank God and thank you.

A One-of-a-Kind Treasure
The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace.. Psalm 12:6
God's Word is a roadmap for life here on earth and for life eternal. As Christians, we are called upon to study God's Holy Word, to trust its promises, to follow its commandments, and to share its Good News with the world. As believers, we must study the Bible and meditate upon its meanings for our lives. Otherwise, we deprive ourselves of priceless gift from our Creator. God's Holy Word is, indeed, a transforming, life changing, one-of-a-kind treasure. And a passing acquaintance with the Good Book is insufficient for Christians who seek to obey God's word and to understand His will. After all, neither man nor woman should live on bread alone...The Gospel is not so much a demand as it is an offer, an offer of new life to man by the grace of God.
Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Proverbs 30:5

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 1 Peter 5:6
Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is to wait. This is especially true when we're in a hurry and when we want things to happen now, if not sooner! But God's plan does not always happen in the way that we would like or at the same time of our own choosing. Our task--as believing Christians who trust in a benevolent, all-knowing Father--is to wait patiently for God to reveal himself. We human beings are, by nature, impatient. We know what we want, and we know exactly when we want it: Right now! But, God knows better. He has created a world that unfolds according to His own timetable, not ours....thank goodness! Events of all sorts creep or fly exactly how God pleases.
Wickedness never brings stability; only the godly have deep roots. Proverbs 12:3
God does everything in his own time. Sometimes we have to go through the long route to get there. Just sit back and be patient. God knows whats best for it. He will let us know when its time to make that move. Be strong in your faith and never give up. Have a great day.. Thank God and thank you.

Sensing His Presence
Where can I go from his Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. Psalm 139:7-10.
If God is everywhere, why does He sometimes seem so far away? he answer to that question, of course, has nothing to do with God and everything to do with us. When we begin each day on our knees, in praise and worship to Him, God often seems very near indeed. But, if we ignore God's presence or--worse yet--rebel against it altogether, the world in which we live becomes a spiritual wasteland. Today, and everyday hereafter, thank God and praise Him. He is the Giver of all good. Wherever you are, whether you are happy or sad, victorious or vanquished, celebrate God's presence. And be comforted. For He is here. God is nearer to me than I am to myself; my existence depends on the nearness and the presence of God.
The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, observing the wicked and the good. Proverbs 15:3
God never leaves u nor forsake is and having a genuine relationship with Him is up to us. God is so willing to be in our lives if we let Him. Believe its so much better in life to know that God hears your prayers and enjoys answering them. Have a great day. Thank God and thank you.

But Abram said, "Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?" Then Abram said, "Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!" And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, "This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir."
Henry Drummond, a 19th-century Scottish evangelist, observed, "Christ never failed to distinguish between doubt and unbelief. Doubt is can't believe; unbelief is won't believe. Doubt is honesty; unbelief is obstinacy. Doubt is looking for light; unbelief is being content with darkness."
When God promised to bless him (Gen. 15:1), Abraham responded, "How are you going to do it?" This was not a lack of faith, because Abraham believed God was going to keep His promise; he simply didn't understand how God would do it. Since "blessings" were always believed to come through children (Ps. 127:3-5), and Abraham had none (nor from a human perspective did it look like he would have any), he inquired as to how God was going to do it. God honored that question and told him, "One who will come from your own body shall be your heir." Abraham was satisfied. The case was closed.
It's not wrong to ask questions about God's plan; it's only wrong to question the rightness of God's plan. There's a subtle but important difference here. It's only natural for people to want to know, "God, how do You plan to pull this off?" In essence Abraham said, "I'm to be the father of a great nation, and yet I have no children. I know You can do it, Lord. But I'd sure like to know how."
If you're wondering how God will work His will and His way in your life, it's perfectly legitimate to ask. But always ask in faith. Feel free to question how God is going to work out His plan, but never question His ability to work out that plan. The first is inquiring faith; the second is irreverent unbelief.
Doubt asks how; unbelief asks why.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff - they comfort me. (Psalms 23:4 NRSV Bible)
There is a story of a family who was on their way home from church. The son asked his mom, "Is it true that we are made of dust like the minister said tonight?"
"Yes, darling," his mom replied.
"And is it true that we go back to dust again when we die?
"Yes, dear," his mother replied.
"Well, mom, when I said my prayers last night and looked under the bed, I saw someone who is either coming or going.
Life is a continuing process of coming and going. Are we ready for what life and death will bring us?
And Jesus said to them, "Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see that the kingdom of God has come with power," (Mark 9:1).
Dear Jesus, may your kingdom come in my life, as I prepare my life for eternity. Amen. Have a great day. Thank God and thank you.

The Gift Of Salvation
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
God has given us so many gifts, but none can compare with the gift of Salvation. We have not earned our salvation; it is a gift from God. When we accept Christ into our hearts, we are saved by His grace. God's grace is the ultimate gift, and we owe to Him the ultimate in thanksgiving. Let us praise the Creator for His priceless gift, and let us share the Good News with all who cross our paths. We return our Father's love by accepting His grace and by sharing His message and His love. When we do, we are eternally blessed....and the Father smiles. The grace of God is sufficient for all our needs, for every problem, and for every difficulty, for every broken heart, and for every human sorrow.
Trouble chases sinners, while blessings chase the righteous. Proverbs 13:21.
God can do anything that he likes but he loves for us to yearn for His love. The gift of Salvation is so great because like mentioned earlier we don't deserve it. But God's love for us is so priceless that even when we don't deserve it He still gives it to us. Isn't that great. Have a great day. Thank God and Thank you.

God's Word commands us to be generous, compassionate servants to those who need our support. As believers, we have been richly blessed by our Creator. We, in turn, are called to share our gits, our possessions, our testimonies, and our talents. The theme of generosity is one of the cornerstones of Christ's teachings. If we are to be disciples of Christ, we, too, must be cheerful, generous, courageous givers. Our Savior expects no less from us. And He deserves no less. The rich man is not one who possesses much, but one who gives much.
The liberal soul shall be made fat; and he that waterth shall be watered also himself.
