WHAT TODAY LORD?

 Isa 30:21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left

Lord what do you want me to do today? There are many things to get done.
If I do them all I know it will take much time, and I'll surely be on the run
Then I felt a tug in my heart and mind, saying " Do this for Me today."
So I followed His lead, and He gave me the strength, to do it all His way.
I'm so glad I listened to Him today, and went about doing His work.
It always pays big, when you follow His lead and His duty you do not shirk. (RP)

PHONE RECEPTION

Then Moses said to God, Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? what shall I say to them? And God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM. And He said, Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you. Exodus 3:13-14


The names of God are important to us and reveal to us very much,
In fact His names help us all through life, and bring us the Master's touch.
For each of our needs, He has a name that helps, displaying His loving care, 
If you doubt God's help don't forget his I Am, because it's always there,
When we are aware of the I AM who speaks, there's nothing for us to fear,
He supplies what we need with His special name, and we know he is always near. (RP)


My son appreciates the wonderful WiFi connection in my house. However, my special Lazy Boy place does not do so well when I want to use my phone to browse, etc.  Yesterday I decided to do something which I had in the back of my mind for quite awhile. I unplugged the microwave, which was in direct line from my office to the Lazy Boy.  The signal immediately went from "fair" to "good" reception.  So at least it is a step in the right direction. I still have a WiFi booster to install to improve that, hopefully.

PEOPLE NEED THE LORD

1Pe 5:7 Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

So many people are hurting Lord, and there is so very much grief.
I pray today that the hurting ones, will come to You seeking relief.
Bodies are aching, and families are torn; I pray You will help today,
As they come to You humbly bowing, and seeking Your face, and pray. (RP)

The burden of prayer grows greater, as I read and talk with you dear ones each day. I am so glad God has given us the marvelous recourse of prayer. How we all need to intercede for one another, taking these issues to Him. Thank YOU for praying.

GOD'S PRECIOUS WORD

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 

A three-fold command is given us here, to help us along life's way,
And all who diligently follow God's lead, will be blessed every day.
So cheer up fellow Christian, rejoice always in our wonderful Lord.
And I know without a doubt, that in doing so their is great reward.
Pray more each day, and give thanks to Him, and thus his will fulfill,
And you, my friend will be content in life, because you have done His will. (RP)

This verse from the Bible caught my attention this morning, so it became the theme of the poem I wrote.  How wonderful is His word. It is our daily food and inspiration. I pray it will be the same for you today. Thanks for praying.

FINALLY

The Lord ... never fails. Zephaniah 3:5

The Lord never fails in what He says He will do,
Everything in the Word about Him is very true.
It's refreshing to know we can rely upon Him,
Our hope in Christ will never never grow dim. (RP)


It has taken a long time, but finally all the required steps have been taken for my book to be published. I do not think they can get the first copies out before Christmas, but I will wait and see. Marketing is not my thing, so I will have to learn as I go. I do know that the books will sell for $20.99. Due to my surgery and recover, a huge delay has resulted in getting this book to the publisher. Thank you so much for your prayers. I am so glad the Lord is in charge of it all. I rest in Him.

WIND STORM

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea,
Peace, be still! And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 
Mark 4:39

God controls the winds and seas; all is beneath His command,
All nature moves and reacts to His call, everything is planned.
I'm so glad our Savior knows how to calm the troubled sea,
He's also the One to whom we go as we pray and make our plea.
Today, if your heart is troubled, go to the One who hears,
He will listen intently to what you say and stay while it disappears.(RP)

High winds were forecast the last two days. Last night we got plenty of it. I penned the poem because of the wind. In times past, the wind sort of kept me awake, but no more. Maybe because I have been through a few wind storms. How sweet to rest in Jesus when the storms are raging. Why not? He is the One who brings them. And He always has a reason. He doesn't share those reasons with us. All we do is trust Him. Thanks for praying.

PROOF READING

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
Ephesians 1:3

Believers in Christ have blessings galore; this is God's promise today,
These spiritual blessings are His love-gift to us; we thank Him and pray.
God is not stingy in giving these things; every blessing is ours to enjoy,
We gladly accept them and earnestly endeavor each one to employ. (RP)

I received the corrected manuscript for my book, and found one more mistake, which I noted on their special correction form. I am hoping this is the last. It has happened several times now, and there must be a glitch in the software system somewhere, because the mistakes are spacing problems. I thought the book would be ready by Christmas, but I hardly see how that is possible now.  Solomon said it best and I will say amen to it: Ecl 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. I have to say however, that I do like studying God's word. Thanks so much for praying.
