NONE

None

Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare. Psalm 40 : 5

Control

One thing God will never do is to control human beings.

[ The Believer’s Freedom ] “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

1 Corinthians 10 : 23

Well Rooted

Roots

It’s a good thing to be well rooted whether referring to families or to plants. My family roots come out of the sunny island of Barbados.

On my last visit, I became fascinated with the beauty of the trees, also with the roots that seemed to force themselves above ground as they continued to grow.

We also need to be well rooted in Jesus, as He is the one who sustains our life.

If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. Romans 11 : 18

Nature’s Chuckles

Chuckle

These are some of the things that make me chuckle in nature. They remind me of the David Goliath story, only that they are taking place in nature.

The Blue Jay in the photo above annoys a Hawk repeatedly. It must have a nest close by to take such chances. His young ones are in need of his protection.

Young Starling & Grackle

It makes me chuckle to see this young starling; only a few days old, fighting an adult Grackle at the bird feeder. He doesn’t want to be denied his next meal.

This Crow chases away a juvenile Bald Eagle, he also possibly is nesting have close by. It’s amazing what these little ones will do when they feel threatened.

We too also need to stand up to the Goliath’s in our lives.

You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7

 

Upward Climbing

Climbing

IMG_7085 Upward Climb copy.jpg

Climbing a mountain can be very strenuous. I imaging it would be painful, exhausting, exhilarating, yet at the same time depleting you of your energy supply. Some even die along the way while trying to make it to the top of a mountain.

Our Christian walk is one of faith and it could be liken to climbing a mountain. It will also be difficult at times, painful and exhausting, but if we take a firm grip of the hand of Jesus A Tenacious Hold On His Garment He will see us through. There may be blood shed along the way, sweat and tears also, but God will see us through. He will take us to the top of the mountain. So my pray for all Christians is, that we may keep climbing and that we may one day reach our reward.

Blessed

Blessed is he whose faith is not offended,

When all around his way

The power of God is working out deliverance for others day by day;

Blessed are you, O child of God, who does suffer,

And cannot understand

The reason for your pain, yet will gladly leave

Your life in His blessed hand.

Yes, blessed are you whose faith is “not offended”

By trials unexplained,

By mysteries unsolved, past understanding,

Until the goal is gained.

Begin the day with God!

He is your Sun and Day!

He is the radiance of your dawn;

To Him address your day.

Take your first walk with God!

Let Him go forth with thee;

By storm, or sea, or mountain path,

Seek still His company.

Horatius Bonar

“God leads us on by paths we did not know;

Upward He leads us, though our steps be slow,

Though oft we faint and falter on the way,

Though storms and darkness oft obscure the day;

Yet when the clouds are gone,

We know He leads us on.”
