Child of God

He's got the whole world in His hands!

Our honeymoon in Spain - July 2017

“Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)

“Even to your old age and grey hairs, I am He. I am He who will sustain you and carry you.” (Isaiah 46:4)

I saw a very amusing post on Facebook the other day.  It said something along the lines of, "Inside every old person is a young person, wondering what the heck happened!"  I could relate to this.  They say the older you get, the faster life speeds by and, as a 60-something, I can vouch for this.

My grey hairs are being judiciously covered up with the right chemicals on a regular basis but we can't stop the march of time.  We are all programmed to get old and this life won't last forever, but remember that Jesus offers you eternal life if you believe in Him and accept what He has done for you.  

For our honeymoon, we were fortunate enough to be offered the use of my sister-in-law's apartment in Murcia, Spain.  It was luxurious, including a beautiful rooftop area with a hammock, which I loved to lounge on.  We had the use of an outdoor pool and it was very peaceful - the perfect setting for a honeymoon!

It was July and the weather was scorching hot - much too hot for me most of the time but Kev thrived on the high temperatures.

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Matthew 21:22)

This verse isn’t a guarantee that we can get anything we want, simply by asking God and believing. There would be a huge increase in the number of lottery winners, if that was the case! God doesn’t grant requests that would hurt us or others, or that would go against His own nature or will. To be fulfilled, our requests must be in harmony with God’s principles. The stronger our belief, the more likely our prayers will be in line with God’s will, and then He will be happy to grant them.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” (Romans 8:35)

No matter what happens to us, no matter where we are, we can never be lost to His love.

“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.” (Hebrews 13:6)

I rely on the Lord to help me with every single aspect of my life and have become quite dependent upon Him!

Well, that's it for another week.  Mixed weather at the moment - it's more like April than May!  Nothing exciting planned this weekend.  We are going to do some work in our church on Saturday, though.  

May God be with you, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.  Have a good weekend.
