Rejoice with Joy

Wild Flower Field

Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory.

1 Peter 1:8

Wonderful Fall

Thank you God, for all the beauty of your creations.

American Goldfinch

 “Last year on the trip south, one of my hummingbirds said, “Hey Mr Goldfinch, I know where  there are a lot of zinnias. Just stick with me and I’ll take you to them next year.”

Mr. Goldfinch did just that and they made the trip this year to the zinnias. 

He is stripping the petals off of  my zinnias to get to the seeds.  Almost all of the petals are off of the flower behind him. Yummy seeds!  The Beautiful American Goldfinch

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

God gave us our greatest gift

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Be Without Fear

 

 

 

                                  Be Without Fear

Without fear, shall we be. Knowing God is here with us.

He is our God from where our strength comes.

He helps us and holds us with His righteous right hand.

Without fear, shall we be. Knowing God is here with us.

 

Isaiah 41:10 (HCSB)

Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.

 

In Your Presence I Stand

O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth! Psalm 8:8 (NASV)

D3D1E27E-2363-479D-A896-6DF9048774BF

I stand amazed in your presence.

Knowing the majestic wonder of your greatness.

Feeling the touch of your hand,

As you stand beside me,  walk with me,

And guide my way.

 

Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.
Psalm 25:4-5 (NKJV)

 

 

 

WHO AM I

I AM HIS

John 3:16 (CSB) For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.                                                      

 

Dead Sea Rising

#DeadSeaRising by #JerryBJenkins was released on 11-13-18.  This is the first fiction book I have read in many years.  I normally read short inspirational passages or books.  I knew I was taking a huge step, but I definitely felt God’s leadership in this decision.  I received the advanced reader copy of the book and began reading it with excitement and anticipation.  After reading the first few chapters, I was hooked.   With a few adjustments to my reading strategy, I read the book and I could not stop turning the pages.  It is not written to be read this way, but I had to read all of the chapters that related to the present day and then read all that related to history,  I could not mentally keep up with what I had read by switching back and forth.  This is just a stroke deficit I have, but I was determined to overcome this if I could.  With God’s help, I did.  If you like mysteries,  adventure and intrigue that will keep you wanting to know what is going to happen next, read this book. You will be waiting expectantly with me on the next one in the series.  #ReaderReview

Unshakable Hope

I finished this post on perseverance on the 23rd of last month and was planning to post it the following day. But it seemed that I had another lesson on perseverance to learn and more paragraphs to add before I posted it.

I woke up that Monday morning and was not feeling well, but I stuck with my routine of Mary getting me dressed and out of bed at 7:30. I found it so difficult to breathe, much more difficult than usual when Mary removed my breathing mask. Still, like thousands of times before, I lied to myself about being a tough guy and surged ahead.

When Mary finally got me propped up in my wheelchair in front of my computer I couldn’t breathe, even after Mary put my breathing mask back on. I struggled even to open my eyes, which is a real problem when you control your computer’s…
