The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Saturday Silly

Captive Dreams Window

A pastor opened his mail one morning. He took a single sheet of paper from an envelope, and found written on it only one word: “Fool.”

The next Sunday, during church, he announced to the assembled congregation, “I have known many people who write letters to me and forget to sign their names.  But this week I received a letter from someone who signed their name but forgot to write a letter.”

Don’t Just Sit There

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

The Gospel According To Jesus – Part 139

bible
“Can you make the friends of the bridegroom fast while the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them; then they will fast in those days.”
Luke 5:34-35 (NKJV)

“Consecrate Yourselves Today To The LORD”

“…Consecrate yourselves today to the LORD, that He may bestow on you a blessing this day…” Exodus 32:29 (NKJV)
Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days;
Let them flow with ceaseless praise. F. R. Havergal

I have noticed that wherever there has been a faithful following of the Lord in a consecrated soul, several things have inevitably followed, sooner or later. Meekness and quietness of spirit become in time the characteristics of the daily life. A submissive acceptance of the will of God as it comes in the hourly events of each day; pliability in the hands of God to do or to suffer all the good pleasure of His will; sweetness under provocation; calmness in the midst of turmoil and bustle; yieldingness to the wishes of others, and an insensibility to slights and affronts; absence of worry and anxiety; deliverance from care and fear;–all these, and many similar graces, are invariably found to be the natural outward development of that inward life which is hid with Christ in God. H. W. Smith
