“Prayer”

Scripture reference;

1And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.

And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.” Revelation 8:1-5 KJV

“Prayer” by Theresa Anne Moore

“Peradventure” she exclaimed.

“Please deliver those I’ve named.

Make them whole.

Cleanse them through.

Reveal to them

The good in You.

I love them Lord.

You understand.

Help me to trust

Your loving Hand,

And one more thing

That I request:

I confess You

Know what’s best,

But I long to see them smile;

To hold them close for awhile.”

Where to Look

I just had the strangest experience. I wanted to use a picture in this post that would illustrate looking straight ahead at Jesus and the path He has for each person who follows Him. My daughter takes a lot of pictures, and shares them on Facebook. Almost all of the pictures that I have used on this blog were taken by her. a few minutes ago I went looking through her albums. I saw the above picture and when I clicked on it in order to see it more clearly I noticed that she had put a Bible verse with it. Very few of her photos have Bible verses, and she has taken hundreds of them. The Bible verse she had selected was Proverbs 4:26…from the same passage I had already typed at the top of my post!  Isn’t that something?  :)

<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3

Scripture references;

25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. Proverbs 4:25-27 KJV

12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:12-17 KJV

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Hebrews 12:1-3 KJV

<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3

The enemy has many arrows in his quiver. His sharpest and swiftest arrows are the ones that are shaped like a pointing finger. We hear him hiss the phrases “Look at this” “Look at that”, “Look over here”, “Look over there”, “Look at him”,  “Look at her”, and “Just look at yourself!” as they whiz past us…and at us… on their way to their targets. He will do anything to distract us, to keep us from looking to Jesus.

What have you been gazing at lately? Has it been at the Lord, and the path He is directing you to follow, or has it been at something or someone else? Let’s take a moment to pause and look up and ahead to our lovely Savior and the wonderful things He has promised us.

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the…

“The Issues of life”: Introduction

I was reading a blog post that is written by someone who is so precious in both the Lord’s sight and in mine. It got me thinking about spiritual bread. Below is a link to her post and a prayer that I like to pray.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:1-5 KJV

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command…

We praise Thee, O God!
For the Son of Thy love,
For Jesus Who died,
And is now gone above.

Refrain

Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Hallelujah! Amen.
Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Revive us again.

We praise Thee, O God!
For Thy Spirit of light,
Who hath shown us our Savior,
And scattered our night.

Refrain

All glory and praise
To the Lamb that was slain,
Who hath borne all our sins,
And hath cleansed every stain.

Refrain

All glory and praise
To the God of all grace,
Who hast brought us, and sought us,
And guided our ways.

Refrain

Revive us again;
Fill each heart with Thy love;
May each soul be rekindled
With fire from above.

Refrain

Scripture Reference;

13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:14-16 KJV

G reater goals gone astray

Well, I am wondering if I should have inserted punctuation marks. I guess I will leave it as it is.

“The Commandments of Christ” (Introduction)

“…Lately I have had a desire to return to the four gospels and read what Christ’s commandments are…”

Moore to Ponder

heart-1407248_1920

Scripture reference;

 If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15

I think I am going to try to blog today. I still have other series that I need to finishmy “Loving Pursuit” series and a couple of others that I started and then abandoned about a year ago. But I have to feel “lead” whenever I write anything.  Recently I have had this verse on my mind:  
 
 If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15
 
Ever since my early teens I have wanted to be an obedient follower of Christ.
At times my heart would cool and the lure of the world would entice me for a season here and there. Yet even then, I had that drawing going on inside meconvicting me, and eventually compelling me to return to the Lord.

Autumnal Tasks

I enjoy her blog so much. She is such a thoughtful and inspiring author.

Cynthia Reyes - Author

Autumn is here, rustling all of the leaves

Soon ’twill be time to take care of the eaves

Last time we didn’t, we paid a big price

The eavestroughs were clogged, a magnet for ice

~~

And speaking of leaves, I’ve had cause to wonder

Why don’t they stay near their trees over yonder?

Why does the wind blow them into our place

Why, when around them is so much free space?

Photo by Hamlin Grange

And speaking of wind, there’s a shutter gone loose

Far up near the roof, nearly high as the spruce

And if it should fall, it may land on our heads

Or just fly away as we sleep in our beds

~~

And speaking of beds, there’s the garden to tend

And errors we really must hasten to mend

Those wild strangling vines and the tough creeping Jenny

You put up with one and you end up with many.
