The Morning Mercies of God

Good Morning! There is a good reason why Gods mercies are new each and every morning, it's so that we can dump and leave all the mess that we walked through yesterday behind us and start the new day a fresh in Him. The LORD'S loving kindness indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. "The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "Therefore I have hope in Him." Read Lamentation 3:22-24. Now say, Amen! We say Amen because we know of His love and His kindness personally, and there are people who are still living in darkness and carrying their mess day after day.

We live this truth each day when we wake up and know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we are free to face a new day with hope and anticipation that we are fully equipped in the Lord to handle whatever comes our way today because tomorrow will take care of itself. O LORD, be gracious to us; we have waited for You. Be their strength every morning, our salvation also in the time of distress. Read Isaiaha33:2.Yes, we will have some distresses, that's how we grow, life without issues means we can't experience what God will do for us when evil tries to influence us, and without that how can we celebrate in His mercies each morning, even if it's only to say thank You Lord for getting me through this trail? 

We must always remember, that our hope is to look good going through the day so that others who don't know Jesus can see what His mercies look like on us, so that one day, they can experience it too when they come to accept Jesus as their Lord. Have a nice....

Value Your Friends

Good Morning! People will come and go throughout our lives, but people of value will last a lifetime. Sometimes I'm puzzled to think of how some people will walk away from others for the simplest of things that they feel is so important when in the real scheme of things it doesn't matter.

I've been a loner most of my life because of my childhood, I don't have a real bond with any people from my childhood because of how I was raised. Don't get me wrong, I have a great many dear and loving friends now who have been in my life for many years because we love and value each other, and that's what made me think about how we have a friend in Jesus who is and will always be there with us and for us. I want you who are reading this to know this for sure if you meet someone and call yourself a friend, don't be willing to think you are so secured that you can cut people out of your life for the wrong reasons; just think about if God did that to you.

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. Read Proverbs 17:17. Better is open rebuke than love that is concealed. Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy. Read Proverbs 27:5-6.

The value that we have in our friendships should be as loving them as we love ourselves, so don't throw away a friend because of a false and haughty pride because that person may be the one placed in your life to be a blessing to you when you need it the most. King Saul's son Jonathan did not throw away his friendship with David' because his father hated David because Jonathan loved and valued David for himself. A valued friend is hard to come by, they love us, help us, and we can depend on them when needed, they will speak life to us when we need it, and they share godly wisdom if we begin to stray off on the wrong path, they will speak God's truth at all times and that's why they are a valued friend. Love your valued friends because they need you as much as you need them. Have a nice day...

You Can't Out Give God

Good Morning! Open your hands to give to others and watch what God will do. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Read Luke 6:38. The providence of our God is always at work, we will get back what we hand out, so let us give to help with generous hearts because we can't out give God. Have a nice day....
