    Who Says?

    In Romans 8:33-39, it says: “33 Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies. 34 Who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is the one who died, but even more, has been raised; he also is at the right hand of God and intercedes for us. 35 Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: Because of you we are being put to death all day long; we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered. 37 No, in all these things we are…

    He Bends Down to Listen.

    I was reading this Psalm yesterday afternoon and it just stopped me in my tracks. There were so many important words used in these verses that I just kept reading them over and over again. Psalm 116: 1-2 says, “I love the Lord because He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because He bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!” Then I thought about the times when I saw only troubles and sorrows in my life, but I kept praying continually just like in this Psalm. Verse 5 describes such a beautiful call to God in times of despair and need: “Then…

    Count your blessings.

    It’s a sure sign I’m getting old when I begin to reminisce on the old hymns! But these hymns were written by men and women inspired by God in their season, and I believe God continues to use these words to encourage us today, and remind us of His Care for us. The hymn I am referring to is Count Your Blessings. It says When you are discouraged thinking all is lost- Count your blessings. The word count is very significant because as we name our blessings one by one what happens? We are “surprised” by what The Lord has done. It is an exercise in gratitude. Sometimes our “…

    Sharing a good laugh together.

    For more than a month we’ve had to conform To staying at home but it’s just not the norm I want my life back to the way it has been And say a goodbye to this COVID-19 I thought I’d be happy to lie in my bed And not go to work but to stay home instead But would you believe through what I have seen My thoughts now have changed thanks to COVID-19 I’d rather be active and back at my work But more so than that I miss my dear “kirk” To be back with the saints I am really most keen But that is not possible due…

    You can trust Me.

    There are many verses in the Bible about trusting God. But let’s be honest with ourselves I think we all have trouble trusting God in at least one area of our life. What are some of God’s promises to you when you place your trust in Him? God will bless you. Psalm 1:1-2 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. God will give you wisdom. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the…
