Take Courage if Success is not to be Today!

Take Courage If Success is not to be Today, Try Again, it will Come Tomorrow!

Take Courage That if Success is not to be Today, Try Again, it Will Come Tomorrow!

Take Courage if Success is not to be Today,  Try Again, it Will Come Tomorrow!

Good morning!  Today I was thinking about courage.  It takes courage to get up out of bed in the mornings.  I know that sound a little drastic, but hey, we live in a world that is full of dramatic and drastic changes every day.   Courage is the get-up and go of every success.  Without Courage, no chances of success or failure would have ever been attempted.  I would rather try and fail than to stay seated and never attempt to succeed.  The picture of the squirrel depicts a failed attempt to get birdseed, but if you’ve ever had squirrels at your birdfeeders, you realize really quickly that they do not let failure deter them.  They continue to come to that birdfeeder over and over again until they figure it out.   They take courage that if success is not to be today, try again,  it will come tomorrow, and so it goes with us. Take courage my friends if you’ve made a courageous attempt and it did not work out quite the way that you thought.  Pick yourself up and learn from it, and take a deep breath and start again. Take Courage if Success is not to be Today,  Try Again, it Will Come Tomorrow!

Love Never Fails

13 Apr

Love Never Fails!

      Good morning all!

Love Never Fails! This morning I was pleasantly surprised by my

two children!  They simply wanted to show me that

they loved me and so while I was outside on my front

porch, they cleaned my bedroom for me.  They did

special little things for me one of which was to create

a little area in my bedroom where I could sit and read.

They know what Mommy loves.

     As I thought about how much they wanted to bless

me and please me, I thought about how  that

I could possibly be pleasing to others.  Without trying to be

preachy or too corny,  the best way I know is

to simply let the love of our Father GOD show through

me.  I hope this blog is one of those little ways!  As

I pour my heart into what I feel the Lord would have

me to say today, it is simply that He loves you.

   It doesn’t matter to him what you do, or do not do,

he chose to love you.  You can’t earn his love, he just

lavishes it upon you every day.  You might be saying

“Hey girl, I don’t know what you’re talking about, my

life is in the toilet right now! How could anyone

love  me  when I am like this?”    I would say to you,

that you’re the very one he wanted to speak to today,

“I love you with an everlasting love!”  He says.  Will you

just fall back into his loving arms and let him love you

today?  I have fallen today!  His arms are safe and feel

wonderful! Love Never Fails!

The Father’s Good Pleasure!

Little Lamb Luke

Luke 12:32  (KJV) Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

As I write this, I was thinking about the past few weeks and how the Lord has just blessed my family beyond anything that we really asked him to.   I also thought about people who are still waiting for their promise to come.   Sometimes when it seems the Lord is passing out to everyone but to them, something just sort of rises up in them and mumbles, “Wait a minute, why am I not getting blessed? They are asking the Lord, “When is my season going to come?”  I know about those questions because I’ve been there, and I have asked them myself.  The one thing I’ve really learned, however, is that it is all available to me and has always been available.  I don’t want to get upset because others are getting theirs and totally miss mine because I’m off pouting somewhere. My Pastor calls a pouting mentality an orphan spirit.  If I am a child of God then all that He has is mine!   I’ve learned to rejoice with others, because I know that the same blessings are available to me!

When the prodigal son left the Father’s house to go and “live it up and waste what his Daddy gave him” He had to come to a place of realization.  He had to realize that regardless of what he did or didn’t do the Father’s love was enough and that he could go home to the blessing. His older brother, however, was upset that the Father would just welcome the prodigal son back home and throw him a party, kill the fatted calf, put a ring on his finger, give him His best robe…Why? The older brother didn’t realize that all of it had been available to him all along.  The eldest brother could have lived in a perpetual party, but he let envy and bitterness rob him from receiving the blessing of the Father. How sad it will be that many Christians will get to heaven and only then find out what was made available to them while they lived upon the earth, but they never received it because of envy and jealously.  

When Jesus bled and died, He said “It is finished!” So everything is available to us, but not all things are entrusted to us right away.  Like the prodigal son had to go through some character building lessons, so do we.  My son would love to have a mustang car, he is only 13.  Do you think I will give him a mustang car now?  NO WAY….Why?  Because he is a child and he is not mature enough to handle a mustang…Many Christians are still childish and they are not mature enough to handle all that they want from the Lord.   As the above scripture states, Luke 12:32 (KJV) Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.  The Father is not withholding from you, but maybe he is protecting you long enough for you to build up a strong character, that whatever you want from him will not destroy you, but will benefit you!

The First Signs of Spring to Lift the Spirit!

First Signs of Spring! 001

Matthew 6:26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

The past few days in Georgia the weather has been simply beautiful, the earth is waking up!  It is amazing to see how green the grasses have become.  It blew me away to see how fast my beautiful jonquils shot forth out of the ground and began to bloom! Less than two weeks ago, we had an ice storm and snow!  Also my wisteria is starting to have little green shoots.  They will probably bloom this week as well.   I don’t know about you, but with the change of season, comes a change in mood!

The mornings are still really cool, but I throw on a flannel shirt and get out on my front porch and just listen to the sounds of the birds singing their songs!  The other day I had the privilege of getting to see a huge flock of Robins land in my yard.  There must have been several hundred of them!  I love to hear them communicate to each other.  I am sure they were saying “Look at what treasures our Father has provided for us beneath all of these dead leaves!” This usually always means Spring has sprung.   Through the signs of Spring, the Lord lifts my spirit!

With everything coming alive and the birds singing their praise to the Lord, it seems as though the following scripture is coming alive! Matthew 6:26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

Why worry, when the Lord has already told us in his Word and showed us that He intends on taking good care of us!   I hope as you hear and see the signs of Spring outside your window or if you are like me, you get right outside in the thick of it, that you will know that you are valued and that the Father is taking good care of you!
