Maybe I’m getting older but singing hymns do put a smile on my face.  This hymn was sung last Sunday and I fell in love with the last verses – yes, my wandering heart, prone to leave the great I AM.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do while pondering on His great love.

This is a keepsake from a good buddy of which​ I kept it at work to remind me of God’s words.

I chewed on today’s verse, I know  that God’s path lead to the everlasting; but what does the psalmist say?  That God’s path leads through the sea!  That can’t be easy, no walk in the park?  But it’s true, Jesus had said that it is not easy to be His follower (Luke 9:23).

God’s way is through the mighty waters.  Oh dear, as if through the sea isn’t enough!  Remember the parting of the Red Sea?  Those are mighty waters, but it is no trouble for the Creator – it formed walls on either side of the path at God’s command (Exodus 14:21-22), so that the Israelites can pass through; in keeping His promise to His people.

God, Your promise is everlasting, they never goes to void.  We forget and we fret so easily when we don’t see Your footprint by our side.  Remind us daily of Your presence with us, through the sea and the waters.  Help us follow your lead, amen.

The pastor shared with us what God had revealed to him, His promise to him many years back.  His sermon ended with an encouragement to all that we shouldn’t let go of God’s promise to us, but remember that no matter what challenge we may come across, trust Him in keeping His promise.

That was a great message, as I think back to what God had promised to me.  It is not a grand promise of making me king over Israel, but it was something for me that He will keep.  That day as I stood up in despair and confusion, I heard Him say “I’ve got you, do not worry.”  I should remember that today, and for a long time to come.

God, thank you for your promise, thank you for reminding me.  May I hang on to it all the days of my life, so that I do not stray from your sight.  Amen, thank you that You have got me, many years back, so I get to live today.

God clothes the lilies of the field, and they are sure more than just a pretty face….

Very good song to start devotion time.

2017 Jan 8

Sometimes I wonder what God tries to say to me, today I think I got it loud and clear – attended 2 church services and took away similar messages from both.  Have personal time with God.  Know my Savior.  Rely and submit to Him.  Trust. Then I shall hear and know what He has in place for me, or why I am where  I am.

Sounds like a plan, for the new year.  Thank you Lord.  May 2017 be blessed, really blessed.

Never been a fan of new year resolution.

But perhaps THE year to start. To change some false beliefs.

1. I can change.  I am within my control.

2.  There’s nothing wrong with conflicts. Don’t need to avoid it like a plague, and definitely not to be stressed when it isn’t within my control.

3.  Admit there’s no value in arguments.  No one needs to be right all the time.  And can’t be, for that matter.

4.  Don’t sweat over none value-adding stuff.  Arguing being one of them.

5.  Write more blog posts.

Let’s see how I go.  Happy new year to all.
