WORKING OUT PRAYER

Painting by Natalie Plakhotnyk

“The only limit one has is not having God in your life.”

–Prophet Robin D. Bullock

God breathes in us His Holy Spirit to work out prayer.”

–Henri Nouwen

Lord, I worship you

For your name is

Holy, holy, Lord.

How shall I return

all the good you have done for me;

You have loosed my bonds.

I will take the cup of salvation

And call on the name of the Lord.

…This melody plays in my soul…

CELEBRATE MEMORIAL DAY

Painting by Leroy Neiman

“Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

–Hebrews 12:1

On this Memorial Day I can envision all who have bravely served in the Armed Forces.  I must thank my family cheering in heaven for me to finish my race.  Their support is immeasurable.

Who is your great cloud of witnesses to cheer you on in life?

I salute to the land of the free and the home of the brave!

CALL TO COURAGE

If you look closely, exhaustion seems to permeate everyone everywhere these days.  People are either afraid or idle to go back to work.  Parents want their children back in school to catch up on their education.  The flow of optimism is faint, but giving up on life isn’t a good choice either.  I am praying for a wave of courage to inspire everyone in this world to get up and go about their business with optimism and courage.

Boing!  Less Zoom meetings. It’s time to see everyone in person.  I have reset myself from the virus setback.  Have you?

Rolling fog evaporates

Sky brilliantly azure

Capture Love omnipotent

EVERY BLOOM IS UNIQUE

The Roses by Paul Serusier

Every mother is an unique bloom given to her children by the good Lord so that we can return to them when we reach heaven.

With each passing year, I seem to cherish mine more and more…don’t you?

My special friend Kamal at Boundless Blessings describes this mother’s celebration perfectly:

“Forever loved, never forgotten.”

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms around the world!

THE ETERNAL SEAT

Can you see, as I do, many strange events happening around the world – enemies making strange bedfellows, Tsunami averted for the Philippines, ground shakings, volcanos erupting, bad leaders pressing against freedom of speech, yet the virus is waning because God’s amour is at hand for He is a military genius.

We are in a big shift, a turning of spiritual warfare.  God’s Word is a faithful sword against evil, the remnant knows that the battle is already won.  Time to blow the shofar.  With faith and prayer the good of the world is being restored by God’s mightiness.  Watch and see.  Racism will be crushed.  Justice,  Freedom, and Liberty will be bestowed on all the righteous.

Praise the Lord, Allelulia!
