Early Morning Thoughts

I wake up in the morning
and I begin to think
what am I going to write today Lord?


He gives me ideas
and I go to my tablet
and begin to write.

Somedays it may a poem
somedays it may be a verse
and somedays I write an event
that has happen.

It is an adventure to be writing this blog.

Almost gave Up

I was reading my personal devotions today and there was two themes running through the devotion. So I got it all written up and went back to read it over for any mistakes. There were some words spelled wrong or some words were missing. So I tried to correct the erThe format on my tablet is different then on my PC and I just could not correct the errors.

Now there are usually two reasons for this. The first is that I am not writing what the Lord wants be to write. The second reason is that Satan doesn't want me to write what I am writing and he wants me to give up and not write anything.

I believe in this case I was trying to follow someone elses format and the Lordagain showed me that I have my own style of writing so
 stay with that and allow the Holy Spirit to guide me.

How Rich Are You?

Read:Luke 12:13-21 Story of the Rich fool

Thought For The Day

In Luke we read about a rich man who had a lot of earthly prossestions. He was proud of this, but the Lord was not happy with his attitude. He said to the rich man, "You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get it all?"

Real life is not measured by how much you have. It is measured by how rich of a relationship you have with God.

So again I ask how rich are you?

Stones

Read:John 8:31

Thought For The Day


l am collecting stones as a hobby. Then I take the stones and I paint them or carve designs in them and make paper weights out of them. Sometimes the stones are small and sometimes they are big. This is a fun hobby.

In my personal devotions I learned today that sometimes when I get the feeling of unwothness, unbelief, or unforgiveness these things are stones getting in my way and blocking my soul so that I am separated from God my Father. This is the time I need Holy Spirit power to blast those stones out of the way.

Unfailing Love

Read:Exodus 34:6

In the Easy To Read Bible it tells us that YAHWEH passed in front of Moses and told him that the LORD was a kind and a merciful God. He also told Moses that YAHWEH was slow to anger and full of great love. He could be also be trusted.


YAHWEH, another name for God, is the same today. Aren't you glad he is? I am.

My God can be trusted and is full of great love, mercy, and is so to anger. What great quilties to have. O that I would follow Him and show these quilties in my life is my prayer for today.

Book Review: At The Feet Of Jesus

Read: Romans 8;31-33

I have been reading from the book At The Feet Of Jesus written by Joanna Weaver. It is a very good devotional book and I got it from Kindle/Amazon.

Thought For Today
Having an intmate relationship withGod our Heavenly Father is very important. It is more thank just saying a recited prayer, but it is when we go before Him naked and needy really praying from our heart.

The verse chosen today tells us that if God is for us who can be against us? God gave us His only Son and when we ask Him for other things won't He give them to us if it be in His will? He loves us and wants us to be honest with Him. God has given us right Standing with Him. So He is going to listen to us if we have the right relationship with Him.

So how honest are you with God when you pray?

How To Relinquish My Rights

Read Philippians 3:1-11
Today's Thought
How to give up my rights for Gotd's Best

Sometimes we are ask to do something but then tend not be told how to do it. Today I am going to
s3.  Let go one piece at a time. When you have done what God wants you to dohare with you how to give up your rights so that you can live your life in the best way.

1. Ask God to make you willing to surrender control to Him. If you have a hard time in this area ask God to change your attitude so that you are truly willing to do this.

2.  Recognize you have an adversary. Satan does not want you to totally surrened to God. Pray for wisdom and strength not to listen to his lies. Pick up your sword, which is God's word and battle those lies with truth.

Forgiveness

In order to live a live of a disiple we need to forgive others as God as forgiven us. Read Ephesians 4:32. This is not always an easy thing to do. Sometimes evil things are done to us.We dwell on them. Does this bother the other person who has hurt us? No! Some people might not even know they have hurt us, others do but they are consumed with their lust and their needs.

Jesus suffered much for us. He died on the cross and shed His blood for us. He forgave all the people involved. We can do the same with those that have hurt us. Sometimes it takes time to do this. Maybe writing a letter to the person or persons involed with your hurt would be a good thing. Tell them how you feel and what their actins have done to you. If the Lord would like you to send this letter or give it to the person then do so. He might just have you tear it up. Either way He will help you through your hurt and pain.

For forgiving is not always forgetting but it helps us to go on in our Chistian life and we are free in our own hearts. What a relieve it is to forgive.
