Great peace have those who love Your law, And nothing causes them to stumble.
Psalm 119 : 165
How do I obtain my passport?
How do I obtain my pass to that heavenly place?
I must acknowledge Jesus, if I wish to see His face to face.
How do I get that travel permit, what things must I do?
I must acknowledge all Gods commands, and not just a few.
I must have faith, agree that Jesus walked this earth and died but rose again,
He did all this, that one day I might live in eternity, without any pain.
How do I obtain that ticket, to spend a life walking the Streets of Gold?
I must believe in Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Let my life reflect Jesus’ love, the ending will soon unfold.
Birds of the air have an instinct, in that they know when to head north and when to head south again. They also know what foods they can eat and when to store up their food before a storm.
Mankind also have an instinct. Because of our instincts, we are incline to desire a peace of mind, happiness, love joy and much more. However, this is only the beginning of what we can attain, but most of us end up settling for temporary moments of peace, temporary moments of joy etc.
These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit. Jude 1:19
Life is not perfect as a Christian, but when we become Christians, we have much more than instincts to go by. We now have access to the Holy Spirit to be our Guide. Life will still be tricky because there is more than one Spirit, so we will still need to tread carefully. The bible tells us to test the spirits to see which is of God.
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4: 1 (Many end up following the wrong spirit which can then lead to a host of negative issues.)
So, we don’t just have to go by instinct and settle for less, there is much more to be gained with the Holy Spirit as our Guide. If we know or bible we will get to know the Holy Spirit much better. THIS SPIRIT HAS A COMFORTING VOICE
If you hear Jesus knocking at your heart’s door do not hesitate to let Him in. To hesitate could be the difference between eternal life or eternal death.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. Revelation 3:20
The ones who do not allow Jesus into their hearts will not have a life in eternity with Him….it’s a choice tat we are all making; either to walk with God or not.
He’s at the center of my relationship,
He’s at the center of my strength.
He’s at the center of my joy,
He’s at the center of my love.
My God is the center of my everything.
Within us humans, God has place an instinct or the know-how to take care of our young ones.
The animals also know what to do and how to take care of their young ones.
God’s creativity never ceases to amaze me.
Glitter on the water
Diamonds from up above
Man knows it, animals knows it,
God is blessing us with his love.
This winter, February has been such a dark dull month, lacking in sunshine, that it was a blessing and a gift, to see the many smiling faces out today enjoying the mild weather and the beautiful sunshine.
About two springs ago, I got to witness this most juicy and intriguing event right from my kitchen window.
I wasn’t quite sure what was happening at the time, but soon came to realize that I was watching the courtship between two Cardinals. The male Cardinal would fly to the feeder, fetch a seed, and then back to the female that he was trying to attract and offer her the finest sunflower seed he had found.
After his prospect had accepted the seed, I’m sure it made the male Cardinal feel spectacular giving him the hope that there was more to come.
The two lingered for a while beak to beak before the male flew off once again to fetch his mate another seed.
Well the courtship is now over. I’m not sure if Mrs. Cardinal knew what she was in for.
I see her and her alone, busy taking apart my coco liners as she flies off to make a home for her and Mr. Cardinal.
It all seemed to work out in the end, because when it came to the feeding time,
It was only Mr. Cardinal I would see doing this job. So in the end they both played a very important part, in the rearing of the young cardinal.
It’s amazing the instinct that has been placed in man and in all animals, the instinct to love, to care and to share. It’s so nice to see these positive instincts being used.
And that is my juicy tale about “The Courting Cardinals.”
It’s good to have a day when many turn their thoughts to love….if only for a moment. As much darkness surrounds us, I “Wait” for the Ultimate, for only “He” can make all things perfectly right again.
For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven…….1 Thessalonians 4
The verse goes on to say that we must encourage one another…..as we await that glorious day.
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. Mark 12:30
So it seems as though God has placed on my heart this message, and that is to relay that when all minds are focused on Him (God) there will be no place to harbour negative feelings. There will be no place for feeling the likes of depression. There will be peace, and there will be an abiding hope, that one day we will live in eternity with Him.
When we give God our full attention, it is only then that we will be led in the right direction.
