Direct Line

May 31, 2017

Today when we want to communicate via phone we have freedom to talk (or text) anywhere, anytime without having to be in one place to use the phone as this child in the picture. Prayer is like that. We do not have to be in a specific place only able to speak to God in church or at a designated time of day. God is always ready to hear our prayers directly without any person, place or thing. Jesus is the reason we have a direct line to God. 

Luke 11:2 And (Jesus) he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven,

Happy?

May 30, 2017

Want to be happy in life? There is an old hymn that says it all; Trust and obey for there’s no other way, To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey. I have included the words because each verse gives us an answer for our problems.

Psalms 62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. 

When we walk with the Lord

  In the light of His Word,

What a glory He sheds on our way;

  While we do His good will,

  He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.

Chorus: Trust and obey,

For there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus,

  But to trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise,

  Not a cloud in the skies,

But His smile quickly drives it away;

  Not a doubt or a fear,

  Not a sigh or a tear,

Can abide while we trust and obey.

Not a burden we bear,

  Not a sorrow we share,

But our toil He doth richly repay;

  Not a grief or a loss,

  Not a frown or a cross,

But is blest if we trust and obey.

But we never can prove

  The delights of His love,

Until all on the altar we lay;

  For the favor He shows,

  And the joy He bestows,

Are for them who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet

  We will sit at His feet,

Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;

  What He says we will do;

  Where He sends, we will go,

Never fear, only trust and obey.

Romans 13:7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

Love or Hate

May 28, 2017

Written on a church sign:  I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

Mark 5:43-44 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Memorial Day Weekend

May 27, 2017

As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation’s wars. This is not just a weekend to have a picnic or party with friends and relatives, but a time to remember we are free in America because of the men and women who have fought and some died to give us that freedom. Take time in your busy schedule to pray for our troops and if you have someone in the service call, message or text them to thank them for there service.

John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Terrorist Attack

May 23, 2017

Another terrorist attack in England this time mostly young people were the targets. Out hearts go out to the parents and loved ones of the victims. Pray for the survivors and families who lost someone in this evil act. The world holds many dangers from evil doers but as Christians we must trust the Lord for safety and peace.

Psalms 37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

Brighten Your Corner

May 22, 2017

There is a little song “Brighten the Corner Where You Are”.  Today why don’t you encourage someone with a phone call, text message, note or a simple smile may make someone’s day brighter. Maybe a single Mom, a lonely person, a friend who struggling with a problem or a stranger who needs a friendly greeting. You will be the one who gets a blessing along with the person you are encouraging.

Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
