Words Have Different Meanings Today!

I receive messages daily from my friend and my former Pastor. It is called Daily Prescription and it is written my Michael Peck. 

Today's message had to do with words. How words have different meanings now. He used Psalm 103:13 as an example.  Lets look at the verse: "Like as a father piteth his children, so the LORD piteth them that fear Him."

What is the first thought that comes to your mind when you here pity? Today it means "a strong feeling of sadness or sympathy." However in the text it actually means "to love deeply, have mercy upon, to be compassionate and tender for another."

What a different meaning. I like the second meaning better. To think that "Like as a father loves deeply, has mercy upon his child(ren), compassion, and is tender for not only his child but others, that is how the Lord feels about those who have Him as their personal Savior. We are His children. 

If you would like to read Michael Peck's daily prescription you can go to his site. I believe you will be blessed by his writing. Here is the address: dailyprescriptions@michaelpeck.org and if it comes up as an email he wouldn't mind adding you to his mailing list. Just tell him that Bonnie House sent you his address.

At Last !

I got my computer back. It is still not working just right, but at least I can get to everything but printing out something. Need to work more on this. I got everything else hooked up and working on printer, but somehow I don't have the printer hooked up to computer yet.

Other News
This morning as I was looking out my kitchen window I saw a chipmunk for the first time this year. They have holes all over our yards in the neighborhood, but I haven't yet seen any yet. This morning not only did I see one but I saw two. One went into our neighbor's water spout and the other went into one of its hole in the ground then it pop out again. So cute.

I am so glad that the weather is warming up where I live and the flowers, trees, and Spring animals are immerging. What a great time of year!

Rejoicing In The Lord

I have not posted in awhile as things here on the home front have calm done some. I am over my strep throat and my diabetic condition is doing better and Satan is slowing somewhat down on his attacks. There are a few days that I know he is there, but I have the verse that reminds me that greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. I John 4:4.

There is still one problem I do have and that is my computer is not working well and my printer is not working at all. So I am sending back my computer to the repair shop to see if they can fix it see if I may need to get something different. If I didn't use my computer so much I would not get another one but I do use it for many things. 

Now for the thought that I wanted to give you this morning I found while reading my private devotions. It is in Hosea 5:14, 15. "For I will be like a lion to Ephraim, and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear and go away; I will carry off, and no one shall rescue. I will return again to my place until they acknowledge their guilt and seek my face, and in their distress earnestly seek me. 

Thought
I became very sad when I read even God gets tears in His eyes. And He went back to His Home and was going to stay there until His people acknowledge their guilt and again seek His face and their distress earnestly seek Him. 

Israel is God chosen people, but atvthis time the Church is God's chosen people that He is working with along with Israel. We, as the church, sometimes turn our backs on God also. I wonder if God is crying now?
