Me and My Shadow « Two Minutes of Grace


Me and My Shadow « Two Minutes of Grace.

Debbie, as usual, has done it again!

I wonder if Debbie’s blog and our blog should just merge. We are thinking along the same lines, often! 🙂

Ravished By The Beauty Of Christ « Samuel at Gilgal


Ravished By The Beauty Of Christ « Samuel at Gilgal.

A wonderful message that will challenge us, once again, to check our motives for service.

“What is grace?”


“What is grace?

I know until you ask me;

when you ask me,

I do not know.”

Augustine

Grace is given to heal the spiritually sick


“Grace is given to heal the spiritually sick,

not to decorate spiritual heroes”

Martin Luther

Verse of the Day – Your love has given me great joy and encouragement


VERSE:
   Your love has given me great joy and encouragement,

because you, brother,

have refreshed the hearts of the saints.    

Philemon 1:7

THOUGHT:   

Wouldn’t this description of Philemon

be a great one to have said about you!

To be loved,

supported,

and encouraged by an encourager

is to have your heart refreshed

and your attitude lifted.

Let’s make a commitment to be an “encourager”

who refreshes the hearts of those around us this week.

PRAYER:
   Tender and loving God,

thank you for leading the people into my

life who have encouraged me when I most needed it.

Please give me

the eyes to see and the heart to serve

those around me who desperately need my encouragement.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Daily Promises – August 31 – You can look forward . . .


2 Peter 3:13 KJV
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise,
look for new heavens and a new earth,
wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Promise #243: You can look forward to the new heaven and earth that I have promised.

We have something really big to look forward to! … A new heaven and a new earth! If that is not cause for celebration, I don’t what is! All of the reminders of a fallen world will be gone and we will have the privilege of enjoying an untainted new residence for all of eternity! No matter how difficult our circumstances become, we all can hold onto the promise of eternal life.

In Jeremiah 29:11, God promises a hope and a future to all who belong to Him. The next time you turn on the television and watch the news, don’t lose heart! There is a time coming when our God and Father will make a new heaven and a new earth for us! How amazing will that day be for all those who are in Christ!

He chose to love you


You are loved by your Maker,

not because you try to please him and succeed,

or fail to please him and apologize,

but because he chose to love you.
