Think About It

GOD IS CALLING HIS ROLL

 HEAVENLY FATHER, 

FRIENDS, ACQUAINTANCES AND LOVED ONES NAMES

ARE BEING CALLED FROM YOUR ROLL. 

LIVES ARE MORE QUICKLY VANISHING

AS THE BELLS OF DEATH SWIFTLY TOLL.

OH, FATHER, LET US NOT TAKE LIGHTLY  YOUR VISIBLE WARNING SIGNS.

LET US ALLOW YOU TO WIPE OUR SLATES CLEAN. 

GRANT CONTINUED INNER PEACE AND A GOD CENTERED MIND.

WE HAVE THE ASSURANCE, FATHER, THAT IN DEATH WE'RE JUST MOVING ON.

NO NEED TO FEAR OR TREMBLE

AS WE REST  ON YOUR PROMISES TO NEVER LEAVE US ALONE. 

WE'VE READ THAT HEAVEN IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE OF PEACE. 

WHERE WE CAN REJOICE WITH THE ANGELS 

WHOSE PRAISES HOLY, HOLY, HOLY TO YOUR NAME WILL NEVER CEASE. 

BEFORE OUR DAY COMES, OH FATHER

LET US NOT ALLOW ANYTHING BETWEEN YOU AND US OR MAN AND US..

THAT WILL PREVENT OUR VIEWING THOSE BEAUTIFUL SCENES. 

HELP US TO WITNESS TO OTHERS. 

THERE IS NO MORE TIME FOR DELAY

TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOU AS PERSONAL  SAVIOR, 

FOR YOUR FACE WE SHALL SEE ONE DAY.

I AM NOT RUSHING YOUR TIME, FATHER OR TRYING TO FORESEE YOUR MASTER PLAN. I'M JUST MORE AWARE OF THE SURETY

THAT IT'S INEVITABLE THAT WE'LL LEAVE THIS LAND.

SO, LET THIS BE THE SEASON FOR PROMPT FORGIVENESS AND AGAPE LOVE.

A SEASON OF CONTINUAL SINCERE PRAISE TO YOU

AS DO THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN ABOVE.    

MAN BORN OF A WOMAN

     

HEAVENLY FATHER, MAN WAS BORN OF A WOMAN 

TO BE ON EARTH FOR ONLY A FEW DAYS.

DURING THAT TIME YOU HAVE ADMONISHED

THAT WE CHOOSE TO WALK IN YOUR WAY.

LET US NOT TAKE LIGHTLY THE CHOICE YOU HAVE GIVEN US 

TO ACCEPT YOU AS OUR SAVIOR, TO BE BAPTIZED, TO OBEY AND TO TRUST.

THERE IS NO DOUBT LORD, THAT YOU SAID IN YOUR HOLY WORD THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES TO BE PAID 

FOR NOT ACKNOWLEDGING YOU AS OUR LORD. 

IN PHAROH'S  DAY, YOU TURNED HIM OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND 

HARDENING HIS HEART SO NO PEACE COULD HE FIND.

PEACE THAT PASSETH UNDERSTANDING IS AN AWESOME GIFT FROM YOU.

WITHOUT PEACE OUR NUMBERED DAYS CAN BE MOST MISERABLE...IT IS TRUE.

INNER MISERY IS NOT ALWAYS VISIBLE TO OTHERS  WE HAVE FOUND. 

BUT INNER PEACE IS OBVIOUS WHERE TRUE LOVE OF YOU ABOUNDS.

INNER PEACE CANNOT BE MEASURED BY OBVIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES OF LIFE. 

THE DEMON OF DARKNESS IS ALWAYS WORKING 

TO STIR UP WRATH AND EMOTIONAL STRIFE. 

THERE ARE ATTACKS ON OUR BODIES, ALSO ON OUR MIND.

BUT THROUGH IT ALL GOD'S PLAN PROVIDES  PERFECT INNER PEACE AS WE CLIMB... MOUNTAINS OF DISTRESS, JOY, SORROWS OR MULTITUDES OF BLESSINGS.

HE GIVES PERSEVERANCE, ENDURANCE, EMOTIONAL BALANCE 

TO UPHOLD US DURING LIFE'S TESTINGS.

HIS WORD PROVIDES TO US AN AVENUE OF PRAISE.

OUR FATHER INHABITS THE PRAISE OF HIS PEOPLE 

AS BLOOD CLEANSED HOLY HANDS WE RAISE. 

WE NEED NOT  BE PERFECT TO RAISE HOLY HANDS TO HIM.

PERFECTION IS NOT IN US. WE'RE JUST SEPARATE, FORGIVEN FROM OUR  SIN.

ONLY THROUGH GOD'S FORGIVENESS PURCHASED ON THAT OLD RUGGED CROSS 

DO WE HAVE A RIGHT TO PRAISE 

IN CONFIRMATION OF THE SIN THAT HE TOSSED... 

AS FAR AS THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST, THE PSALMIST DAVID SAYS...

NOT REMEMBERED, NOT RETRIEVABLE.  IT'S TIME OUR HOLY HANDS TO RAISE.

MAN BORN OF A WOMAN HAS ONLY A FEW DAYS..

LET US WORSHIP AND SERVE OUR CREATOR 

AS WE OFFER GRATITUDE AND PRAISE.    

LORD YOU'RE ALWAYS THERE

 LORD YOU'RE ALWAYS THERE YOU KNOW JUST WHAT I NEED. 

YOU APPLY YOUR TOURNIQUET OF COMFORT

JUST WHEN MY HEART BEGINS TO BLEED.

YOU UNDERSTAND MY GRIEF... MY PAINFUL DESPAIR.

I JUST PRAISE YOU DEAR LORD FOR YOU ARE ALWAYS THERE.

BEFORE MY BIRTH AS A BABY AND

AS YOUR CHILD. YOU KNEW ME ...

PREDESTINED MY LIFE CALLED ME TO BE GENTLE...NOT WILD. 

YOU SUPPLIED TEACHERS, PREACHERS, OTHERS AS EXAMPLES FOR ME.

LORD YOU'RE ALWAYS THERE REINFORCING THAT MY SOUL IS  STILL FREE....

FREE FROM BEING COMPLETELY OVERCOME BY ANY OF LIFE'S CIRCUMSTANCES.

I PRAISE FATHER, SPIRIT, AND SON. MY LIFE IS IN YOUR HANDS. 

FATHER FOR ALL THAT YOU'VE GIVEN.

FOR ALL YOU HAVE TAKEN AWAY. I UNDERSTAND NOT, 

BUT I ACCEPT YOUR DIVINE WILL TODAY. 

ALLOW THESE TEARS TO FLOW GENTLY FROM MY EYES. 

I TRUST IN YOU COMPLETELY CRYING DOES NOT HURT MY PRIDE. 

CONTINUE TO MONITOR ME LORD WHENEVER MY HEART BEGINS TO BLEED. 

APPLY YOUR TOURNIQUET OF COMFORT FOR YOU ARE AWARE OF WHAT I NEED.  

I ACCEPT

ON THE MOUNTAIN WE FEEL REVIVED

ENJOYING PRAYER AND PRAISE FEELING EXTREMELY ALIVE!

BUT IT'S IN THE VALLEY THAT WE SEEM TO GROW 

STILL FEELING THE PRESENCE OF OUR GOD WHO LOVES US SO. 

IN THE VALLEY WE SEE OURSELVES IN RETROSPECT. 

THE PART OF OURSELVES WE ACCEPT 

AND OTHER PARTS WE NEED TO REJECT.

ACCEPT  THAT PART THAT GIVES YOU

A DEEPER LOVE FOR ALL SISTERS AND BROTHERS,

PREDESTINED RELATIONSHIPS BY OUR FATHER ABOVE. 

THE PART THAT GIVES YOU A GUT LEVEL APPRECIATION 

FOR THE POSITIVE PART OTHERS HAVE PLAYED IN VARIOUS SITUATIONS. 

ACCEPT YOUR ZEAL TO STUDY GOD'S WORD

ENHANCING YOUR DAYS AS YOU WALK HUMBLY WITH OUR LORD.  

ACCEPT  THE HOLY SPIRIT'S GUIDANCE IN PICKING YOUR BATTLES

EVER AWARE OF THE  ONE IN CHARGE

WHO KEEPS YOU FROM GETTING OUTRAGEOUS AND RATTLED. 

WHEN LIFE PRESENTS  AS CHALLENGE AFTER CHALLENGE

THREATENING YOUR DETERMINATION TO STAND STILL AND STEADY...

NEVER LOSING YOUR  BALANCE. 

ACCEPT ALL THE PROMISES GOD'S WORD PRESENTS TO YOU & ME 

TO WALK WITH US HERE ON EARTH

THEN SEND ANGELS TO GUIDE US INTO ETERNITY.      

.

Comfort & Consolation

HEAVEN

  


NOW JUST THINK OF YOUR HEAVENLY HOME

WHERE WITH JESUS  AND LOVED ONES YOU'LL BE.

WHEN ALL THE BATTLES OF LIFE 

HAVE BEEN FOUGHT AND YOU'VE  GAINED YOUR FINAL VICTORY. 

WE HAVE READ OF THAT PLACE  WHERE THE STREETS ARE MADE OF GOLD.

WHERE NEW BODIES PREVENT US FROM EVER GROWING OLD.

WHERE THINGS OF THIS LIFE THAT GROW UGLY AND TRIVIAL

ARE OUTWEIGHED BY THE FACT THAT THERE WILL DWELL NO EVIL.

I  KNOW YOU LONG TO SEE  YOUR LOVED ONES , 

FAMILY AND FRIENDS. SAVED, BAPTIZED BELIEVERS 

THAT STRIVE TO PLEASE GOD TO FOLLOW HIS GUIDE FOR BEHAVIOR.

BY FOLLOWING PRECEPTS  OF OUR SAVIOR AND LORD. 

THEY WERE  SAFE HERE,  

THEN BOUND FOR GLORY TO RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE AND REWARD.

LIVING LIFE ITSELF GROWS SWEETER AS FAR AS RELATIONSHIPS GO. 

ALSO WITNESSING  GOD'S GRACE AND MERCY AS IT CONTINUALLY FLOWS.

BUT YES,

SOMETIMES JUST THINK OF HEAVEN

WITH JESUS AND LOVED ONES AGAIN.

WITH THE BLESSED ASSURANCE

OF A WORLD  THAT WILL BE WITHOUT END.      

FOCUS

FOCUS...FOCUS.   PRAISE GOD  IN  ALL THINGS. NOT FOR ALL THINGS  THAT LIFE TO US BRINGS. FOCUS...FOCUS. GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL. PRAISE HIM,  STILL PRAISE HIM AS BELLS OF DEATH  HAVE ALREADY TOLLED. FOCUS...FOCUS... 

SPECIAL ANGELS WERE ASSIGNED. 

THEY GENTLY  GUIDED THE WAY TO ETERNAL PEACE OF MIND. 

FOCUS NO MORE  ON DISEASE. 

FOCUS NO MORE  ON DISTRESS.

NO MORE ON  DETERIORATION  OF BODY AND DIGNITY. 

FOCUS  ON A MIND THAT IS SOARING FREE! 

FOCUS ...FOCUS. ON HEAVENLY BEAMS IN FLIGHT. 

THAT  GUIDED FROM A WORLD OF DARKNESS INTO GOD'S  PERFECTING LIGHT!        

THE GARDEN

         PSALM 92:13 TLB  " FOR THEY ARE TRANSPLANTED  INTO THE  LORD'S OWN GARDEN AND ARE UNDER HIS PERSONAL CARE. "  


ALL GLORY AND PRAISE TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER WHO DOETH ALL THINGS WELL. WE PRAISE YOU IN  PRAYER AND IN SONG AS YOUR SOVEREIGN WILL PREVAILS. FATHER, AS YOU HAVE TRANSPLANTED  OUR LOVED ONE INTO  YOUR GARDEN 

UNDER YOUR CARE. 

WE ARE CONFIDENT  OF YOUR AWESOME PRESENCE THEY WERE  SURELY AWARE. 

YOU HELD THEM,

CALMED THEM,

ROCKED THEM IN THE CRADLE OF YOUR LOVE. 

UNTIL FROM YOUR GARDEN  YOU SENT ANGELS  TO ACCOMPANY THEM, 

TO THIER HOME SWEET HOME...ABOVE. 

YOU SURROUNDED THEM  WITH GENTLE KINDNESS

AND THE INNER PEACE  THAT  COMES ONLY FROM YOU.

NOT APPREHENSION BUT ACCEPTANCE 

THAT YOU WERE GUIDING THEM SAFELY THROUGH. 

WE COMMITTED  THEM  COMPLETELY, FATHER. 

AS IN OUR MIND WE KNEW 

WE COULD NOT PARTICIPATE OR HOLD HANDS WITH THEM 

ON THIER FINAL PRIVATE GARDEN WALK.

WHICH WE MUST ALSO,  ONE DAY TAKE.    

ENVISIONS

 I AM ENVISIONING THE LIVES OF  LOVING SAINTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE. 

THEY ARE PASSING BY IN ROBES OF WHITE  

WORSHIPING THE GOD WHOM THEY ADORED.

THERE ARE GOOD MEMORIES  AND THOSE WHICH I CONSIDER AS BAD.

THERE ARE SWEET AND HAPPY MEMORIES  AND SOME THAT ARE QUITE SAD. 

ARE THEY PREPARING TO WELCOME HOME ANOTHER LOVED ONE DEAR?

I PRAY THAT INTERCESSORY PRAYERS  FOR A GENTLE CROSSING BE HEARD.

ONE WITHOUT PAIN OR FEAR.

ARE YOU SENDING YOUR ANGELS, FATHER , TO BREAK THIS BIG CIRCLE OF LOVE. 

THAT CAN ONLY BE RECONNECTED WHEN WE MEET IN GLORY...ABOVE? 

AS THAT DAY SEEMS TO BE SWIFTLY APPROACHING 

CONTINUE TO GRANT INNER PEACE. 

THAT PEACE THAT PASSES UNDERSTANDING 

AND GIVES INNER JOY THAT WILL NOT CEASE. 

I SUBMIT TO YOUR WILL, DEAR FATHER, 

FOR OUR WAY IS PREDESTINED FOR US.

I AM ACCEPTING OF YOUR PERFECT PLAN 

THAT REQUIRES NO EXPLANATION...ONLY TRUST.     

Quiet Time Meditations

INNER PEACE

INNER PEACE 

  I THANK YOU HEAVENLY FATHER, THAT INNER PEACE HAS RESURFACED AT LAST. WITH THE DAWN OF THIS BEAUTIFUL MORNING, DISTURBANCES OF UNPLEASANT DREAMS HAVE PAST.

 I THANK YOU THAT NOTHING CAN TRANSPIRE DURING THIS DAY... 

THAT WILL DIVERT YOUR PLAN FOR ME 

OR ESCAPE EXECUTION 

OF YOUR WILL OR YOUR WAY. 

I THANK YOU FOR AWAKENING ME WITH A SOUND MIND AND A FIXED HEART. 

STAY MY MIND ON THEE, 

DEAR FATHER,

 AS NEW MERCIES

 EACH DAY YOU IMPART. 

ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR WILL  WILL ONLY BECOME EASIER FOR ME, 

AS I MEDITATE DEAR GOD,

 ON YOUR AWESOME SOVEREIGNTY. GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, 

GOD THE SPIRIT, YOUR TRINITY...

THREE IN ONE.

 LET THIS DAY BE ONE THAT TRULY GLORIFIES YOU... 

AS YOU MINISTER TO MY SPIRIT, 

AS YOU WALK ME , 

GENTLY, THROUGH. 

THANK YOU, FATHER, THANK YOU. ACCEPT THIS ATTITUDE OF PRAISE. REFRESH...RENEW...

LET ME FEEL YOUR PRESENCE,

 AS MY HANDS 

WITH HUMILITY ARE RAISED  

AMEN...AMEN

OUR FATHER GOD IS SPECIAL

   OUR FATHER, GOD IS SPECIAL FOR OUT OF CONFUSION HE BRINGS PEACE.

 HE SPEAKS CALM INTO OUR SITUATIONS, 

EMITTING  AN INNER JOY

  THAT WILL NEVER CEASE.

 HE HAS AN EYE TO SEE THE FUTURE. 

HE CAN SOFTEN AND WARM A HEART THAT IS HARDENED AND COLD.

 HE SPEAKS LIFE INTO OUR CIRCUMSTANCES. 

GENTLY GUIDES

 THOSE OF US WHO ARE OLD.

 OUR FATHER  GOD IS A HEALER OF MIND, BODY AND SOUL.

 HE FULFILLS PROMISES IN HIS WORD AND RECORDS OUR NAME ON HIS ROLL.

 HE SENT HIS SON TO EARTH

 TO GIVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU AND ME.

 HE PAID THE COST FOR  OUR SINS,

SO FOR ALL, ETERNAL LIFE IS FREE.

 HE DOES NOT BEAT US INTO SUBMISSION. THROUGH HIS WORD HE WOOES EACH ONE.

 HE IS THE HEAD OF THE GODHEAD...HOLY SPIRIT...AND THE SON. ONE HAS ONLY

 TO BELIEVE AND RECEIVE. 

CONFESSING THAT BELIEF WITH THEIR MOUTH. ASKING FORGIVENESS, FOR ALL HAVE SINNED...OUR HEAVENLY FATHER SAVES AND BRINGS US OUT.

 OUT OF LIFE'S DARKNESS

 INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT. 

ACCEPT, 

TRUST AND OBEY.

ACCORDING TO HIS WORD WILL SUFFICE.

 IN A WORLD OF SO MUCH 

TRAGEDY AND CONFUSION 

 ONLY OUR SPECIAL FATHER GOD 

CAN BRING PEACE. 

ONLY HE 

CAN TURN OUR MOURNING INTO GLADNESS WITH AN OBVIOUS JOY THAT WILL NOT CEASE.  


PREPARATION FOR THE DAY

  The father is preparing his children

  for the day that stretches out before us.

 He says, I know exactly 

 what this day will contain.

 All you need to do is trust.

 We think we would feel more prepared

 visualizing,   in our mind, what is up ahead. Maybe a map,

 or blueprint,

 or news flash instead. 

 But God says, however, there is a better method of being  prepared

 for whatever we encounter this day. 

He says, spend quality time with me 

as only I can reveal the way.

 He will not show us

 what is  on the road ahead, 

 but will thoroughly equip us

 so we have no need for dread. 

His living presence is our constant companion 

 each and every step with Him. 

If we stay in continual communication in prayer  whispering His Name Jesus

 He will redirect our thoughts to the fact that  He is always present, 

 Yes, He is always there. 

So let us accept that He has already 

prepared us for our day

 By keeping our focus on Him 

Remembering to praise, worship and pray!    

THE BLACK SEA UKRAINE

TO KEEP YOUR HEAD ABOVE WATER

FOCUS ON IT'S SOVEREIGN CREATOR!

FROM A MOTH TO A BUTTERFLY

WHEN SOMEONE BECOMES A CHRISTIAN HE BECOMES A BRAND NEW PERSON INSIDE HE IS NOT THE SAME ANYMORE.

 A NEW LIFE HAS BEGUN.


RESTORED FOR A PURPOSE

AS RESTORED CHRISTIANS WE CONNECT PRESENT DECISIONS TO FUTURE CONSEQUENCES WITH A CAPACITY TO SEE ALL OF LIFE WITH A DIVINE PERSPECTIVE.
