TROUBLE or call it what you may

Trouble or Call it What You May…

 

Dear brothers and sisters,

Life is hard! I was just telling God Thank You for His great love. Specifically His love for me through my eldest daughter. A light went on inside me and God gave me a new perspective on an old difficulty: ‘TROUBLE’. It is as ancient as breathing.

Trouble or call it what you may...

High-jacked by the enemy who comes

to kill, steal and…

Choices by Seekers

Choices…..  for Seekers

 

We( Our study group) have contemplated much this past year about the deeper life from David Hazard's teachings from St John of the Cross. And now I want to share what has also blessed me with God’s guidance through the words of A.W. Tozer, in regards to the deeper life. Words I find challenging and thought provoking.

 

Oh, Holy spirit…

Oh Fire! That burns so intimately

and tenderly penetrates the

fibre and core of my…

Gleanings

Dear fellow Seekers,        Thursday July 16

 

Jesus , God’s Son, is His living Word—He has no other. Having spoken His true message to us altogether in this one Word, once and for all, He has no reason to speak anything that would replace His word. So anyone seeking God for a vision or revelation of some so-called ‘higher truth’ Take care! When you seek a new ‘word’ from God- a new means to live the spiritual life- you are in danger of pushing aside the one perfect Word that…

“The Perfect Path”

“The Perfect Path” 

 

Is it a matter of definition or perspective?

 

If I were to paint a picture of the  perfect path… it would be done in muted, peaceful colors

​and ​

depict a trickling water fall that accompanied

​a bird singing, would almost be heard by the viewer. The sky would filter sunshine on the path and it would be nearly smooth. The trees would line the path providing shade as required. There are places to sit and…

Do Dark Days Have Purpose?

 

DARK DAYS

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His  marvelous light… I Peter 2:9

 

I have much to think over LORD, some are new thoughts, after reading in “The works of St. John of the Cross. Are dark days necessary?

 

LORD, I will trust You to lead me even in my…

Praying to no avail?

Praying…



Praying for years…



Praying for many, many years…



Praying for those who seem un-helped by my fervent, loving, prayer.



Deaf to my hopes, unaffected by my pleas.



Existing in a world that has bewitched them body and soul and they are deceived by the worlds system of thinking. Fear moves them from point A to point B. It is a fear of what could happen if they do not apply some principle…

"All Things Serve Him"... do you really believe that?

 Dear Sisters and Brothers,

 

When I think of you, I can only commit you to the Lover of your souls, knowing He has chosen thee for such suffering. He sets the jewel of His joy in pain and suffering. You are His jewel

 

So from the fnish line, will we say, ‘\'It was worth it all’?  Has someone you love come against you, accused you with words that shame and correct, when they are in no position to even lift their eyes?

 

He was…

Old Man, New Man



Brothers and Sisters you are loved by the King of kings,

 

Until we come to the end of ‘self’ and plumbed the depths of our own sinfulness, we are not ready to be used by God to share the Gospel of Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

How do we know Him as merciful? Is it not, as He opens our eyes day by day, to see the depths of our utter sinfulness? Yes! As long as we have a pretty good opinion of own strength and capabilities, we will not be cast on…

Woe!

TEARS

“But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort. Woe to you who are well fed now, for you will go hungry.

Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep. Luke 6:24-25

 

Jesus words.

 

Brothers and Sisters who long for the LORD’s return, Christ’s love to you!

 

Woe to you who are rich, for you have already received…

The Peace of Christ is Ours!

He (Christ) Himself is our peace. Ephesians 2:14

 

Brothers and Sisters,

I heard said this past week that, “Peace doesn’t reside in circumstances; peace resides in the heart.” 

 

Yes, thankfully this is true. The apostle Paul came to mind. Even with all he suffered in life, He trusted God to be with him, and lead him every step of the way. Read this next paragraph and really look at…

A Short Walk

Taking the blind man by the hand, He brought him out of the village… Mark 8:23

 

Brothers and Sisters, warm greetings in Jesus name,

 

Imagine for a moment, that you are this person who took a walk with the Lord of heaven and earth! A short walk. A life-changing walk. A walk that changed everything. A never go back or be the same again walk.

Do you feel the warmth of Jesus hand as He takes your hand and leads you out of…

God's perfect way!

 As for God, His way is perfect! The word of the Lord is tested and tried; He is a shield to all those who take refuge and put their trust in Him. For who is God except the Lord? Or who is the Rock save our God, The God who girds me with strength and makes my way perfect? He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly or make progress on the dangerous heights of testing and trouble]; He sets…

The struggle is real!

But as for me, the nearness of God is my good;

I have made the Lord God my refuge,

That I may tell of all Your works.

 

l am sharing a letter I wrote to one of my daughters. So often when we struggle we will not share it, because our pride worries about what others will think. May we receive grace to be truthful and walk by faith, instead of…

Three Magic Words?

What’s in a name? or Three Magic Words?

 

Q: Why do we pray ‘In Jesus name’ when closing our prayers?

 

I think a better question is: What does it mean to pray in Jesus name? Are we praying in His name when we tack on those three words at the end of praying all we want to pray? Is it the only prayers God will accept?

 

Then up-pops another question, “Wherein lies my acceptance? “ To mentally empower those three words as if they were magic, is to…

Reasoning Makes All the Difference

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 

Brothers and sisters

My mentor taught me early on ‘trying’ is not trusting.  Trusting is…. well, trusting!  We are created with a mind, emotions and a will. We have a body, soul and spirit, being created in the image of the Holy God. We know we are to walk by faith and yet we so easily live, pray and work in our own strength. The flesh is in control. To walk by…
