Divine Friendships

Dear Lord, thank You for this warm, richness of divine love from my friends.  When they or I need, You pull us together though we may be miles apart.  Remembering prayers, joys & hardships over the years.

Thank You for new friends and the funny things we share and how we meet.  Thank You for renewed friendships we rediscover each other further along the river of life, and welcome the joy in common bonds.

“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”                    John 15:15

“A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”      Proverbs 18:24

Do Your Part

For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.               

1 Corinthians 13:9-10

Be part of God’s plan.

“Bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.

“But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the LORD. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the LORD JESUS, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

Colossians 3:13-17

 

 

That’s Not Food

 “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:2, 5 (KJV)

Many of us read labels these days amidst the controversy over what’s healthy to eat. My son once said, ‘I’m not feeding my kid food that’s made in a lab.”

Do you wonder why these are still being added? high glucose corn syrup, sodium phosphate, aspartame, food dye, etc. We’re all in a hurry sometimes, do you at least try to limit the bad stuff to 5%?

Todd White Notes

“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” Hebrews 13:16 (NIV)

Here are some notes from an explosive Todd White conference, Hallelujah!  Praise God.

God’s love produces faith

We need to go after Him with everything we are

Start fresh everytime you pray, not based on last results

Can’t embarrass a humble person

Kingdom thinking

1 John 3:8

Bring heaven everywhere you go

John 3:16

All of you is covered with all of Me

Fight for stuff – it’s a war

Acts 2:38

You’re empowered with Holy Ghost

 

All The Lonely People

You’re My friends, if you do whatever I command you (John 15:14)

I think I met the loneliest person in the world: in need of deliverance, 10 years wandering, friendless, if he/she would only surrender to the One Friend, Jesus. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and go see a psychiatrist, also.

“He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will—” Ephesians 1:5 (NIV)

“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.” Acts 2:42

We took sweet counsel together, and walked to the house of God in the throng.” Psalm 55:14
