Happy Father’s Day

Matthew 19:19 Honour thy FATHER and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Our Father 

June 17, 2017

“Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.” 

Tomorrow is Father’s Day in the USA. A day when we honor our fathers. To some the day is a happy occasion. New fathers look at their babies and have joy in their new child. Some people are sadden on the day because their father has passed away or has abandoned the family. A day of mixed emotions. To the Christian, we know we have a Heavenly Father who loves us, and is always there, just a prayer away. We can call Him, Abba Father, which is translated “Daddy” in the English language.

Galatians 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Got Problems?

June 7, 2017

Are you hurting from problems, physical, financial or spiritual? Do not be discouraged, look to the One who can bring comfort to you, the Lord Jesus. Also, seek help from others. Physical, God gave us doctors and medicine to help us with our health problems. Financial, there are many good godly programs available to help you get out of debt. Spiritual, read your Bible daily and talk to a Pastor or Councilor who can help you have victory over the problem. 

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

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.

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.

Monday morning after a blessed and busy weekend. Maybe you are not looking forward to another work week. Remember that this is a day that the Lord has made, decide to rejoice in it. Attitude can make a big difference. I will rejoice. It is a decision.

Psalms 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
