Job 8:21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.
This scripture prompted me to post some Sunday humor:
Haircuts and Walking
A young boy had just gotten his driver’s permit and asked his father if he could now use the car. His father made him a deal. “You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, get your hair cut and we’ll talk about the car.” The boy agreed and six weeks later his father said to him, “Son, I’m real proud. You brought your grades up and I’ve seen that you’ve been studying your Bible but I’m disappointed that you haven’t gotten your hair cut.” The son responded, “You know, Dad, I’ve noticed that in the Bible Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair and even Jesus had long hair,” to which his father replied, “Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?”
Many of us are truly horrified with what’s going on in our world today. Revelation tells us that Jesus has a vision for our world and what it will be like. It may not be in your time or mine, but there is always hope. Happy Sunday.
With all the statistics coming out about how many people are dying from Covid-19, and some thinking it’s the work of the devil, here is a short but meaningful conversation. Devil says, “They’re all mine.” Jesus responds, “Over my dead body.” Happy Easter.
We may ask what is so good about Good Friday when it was the day Jesus was crucified. It is only in hindsight that the answer is found. If Good Friday hadn’t happened we would not have Jesus with us today. This is something I can’t even imagine. Although it is heart-wrenching to think of His suffering, it is heart-warming to know that He didn’t live and die but He died and lives. Happy Good Friday.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
My scripture reading yesterday was Psalm 80 and within that Psalm was this plea, “Restore us O God; make your face shine upon us that we may be saved.” It was repeated four times referring to the problem of the day. How wonderful that we can make it our prayer today. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 NIV. Happy Saturday.
A few days ago a fellow blogger emailed me that he noticed I hadn’t blogged for awhile and hoped that I was not sick, hurt, or lonely; because he cared. It touched my heart.
Over two thousand years ago, a Child, Jesus, came to be with us because we were sick, hurt and lonely. It still touches my heart.
Because He cared we have hope for healing, peace, and love.
Because He cared, we are celebrating His birthday; Christmas.
Because He cared.
Have you ever heard the question, “What would your childhood you want your adult self to know today?” Here’s my answer…sing it out! Happy Sunday.
So many people I know are suffering from severe physical pain which is depriving them of the quality of life they are meant to have.
Will you please join me in a prayer for pain for all people who are afflicted.
Our Father in Heaven, we pray for your healing love to touch all who are suffering debilitating pain in different parts of their bodies. We thank you that as you hear our prayers, you will touch each one with your healing power and set them free from back pain, neck pain, knee pain…any pain that is limiting your people in their daily activities. We thank you for hearing our prayers and answering them in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Thank you to all who will participate in this prayer for pain.
A friend reminded me of this song and as I listened to it I thought…That’s what Jesus asks of us and how blessed we are if we take Him up on it. Happy Sunday.
(Let me start out by apologizing for this post being a day late in some parts of the world, but I was away.)
No, I’m not writing about a hangover. At least not the kind from consuming too much alcohol.
It’s the morning after the resurrection of Jesus and as in days of old, a feeling of jubilation continues to pervade the hearts of believers; a hangover of sorts.
On Thursday we attended the Last Supper. On Friday we witnessed the Crucifixion. Saturday we contemplated what was to come, and Sunday we celebrated the Resurrection.
Today, Easter Monday, we move on with the knowledge that something spectacular has taken place and there is no need for a cure for the morning after because Jesus, himself, is the cure for everything.
