Try the Everlasting Arms


How many times do we need someone to lean on but there just isn’t anyone around. When that happens we can know that there are always those Everlasting Arms. Happy Sunday.

Living With a Capital “L”


Here is what I learned from Dr. Charles Stanley, In Touch Ministries, on February 19th. He said, “You’re young and useful at any age if you’re still planning for tomorrow.”

Some of the ways to plan for tomorrow begin with a capital L. 

Learning…learn something new every day; I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; Psalm 32:8

Loving…love is the best feeling in the world; 1 Corinthians 13: 1-13 says it all.

Laughing…laughter is having an internal massage; A cheerful heart is good medicine…Proverbs 17:22

Leaving…your past behind. Don’t live with your junk. (Dr. Stanley)

Longing…long to know your purpose in life and then fulfill it. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28)

Looking…your best. You feel your best and do your best when you look your best. (Dr. Stanley)

Labouring…working…You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Psalm 128:2 NIV

Leaning…on the Lord…Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5

Listening…to God…Whoever has ears, let them hear. Matthew 11:15 (NIV)

These are just a few of the ways we can live with a capital L. It’s what I learned on February 19th.

 

 

 

Here and Gone


People are dropping out of my life at a rapid rate.

Three  days ago a friend went for her morning walk, and instead of returning home, she went to heaven….via a bus. I’m having a difficult time comprehending that.

The absence of others is not so dramatic, but just as incomprehensible.

Different instances giving different meaning to three little words…here and gone.

I cannot lean on my own understanding.
