Psalm 72

"Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.

He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.

The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.

He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.

He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.

In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.

He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.

They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.

The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.

He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.

And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.

There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.

Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.

And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.

The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended."

Pressing on.....

"Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God."

Psalm 84:5-7


Death Valley
"They not only walk in these ways, but they have them in their hearts, they lay them near their hearts; no care or concern, no pleasure or delight, lies nearer than this.  Those who have the new Jerusalem in their eye must have the ways that lead to it in their heart, must mind them, their eyes must look straight forward in them, must ponder the paths of them, must keep close to them, and be afraid of turning aside to the right hand or to the left. If we make God's promise our strength, we must make God's word our rule, and walk by it.  They are such as this will break through difficulties and discouragements in waiting upon God in holy ordinances....Our way to heaven lies through a valley of Baca, but even that may be made a well if we make a due improvement of the comforts God has provided for the pilgrims to the heavenly city..... They go from strength to strength...Thus it is promised that those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. Even where they are weak, there they are strong. Those that press forward in their Christian course shall find God adding grace to their graces. They shall be changed from glory to glory, from one degree of glorious grace to another, till, at length, every one of them appears before God in Zion, to give glory to him and receive blessings from him.  Those who grow in grace shall, at last, be perfect in glory. We must go from one duty to another, from prayer to the word, from practicing what we have learned to learn more; and, if we do this, the benefit of it will appear, to God's glory and our own everlasting comfort."
Matthew Henry

Five Minute Friday





 Today I'm joining in at 5 minute Friday where we write for 5 minutes straight, then publish without editing. The last is very hard for me to do - just saying! But here goes......




 Start.....

Today's theme is 'Still' which can mean different things, but today it made me think of these verses I shared on here about a week ago -

"....Their strength is to sit still.....In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.."

Often it seems I'm called to be still when I know I would much rather be 'doing', solving the problem, rather than being still and waiting on the Lord. 
Remembering 'Be still and know that I am God', and that He is still with me even in the darkness (Psalm 23).

Today I am.....

Still hoping...
Still praying...
Still waiting on the Lord.....
Still pressing on, putting one foot in front of the other....
Still trying to hold fast......
Still hoping for joy in the morning...
All by the grace of God......

Ending by remembering the verse, 'still hope in God, for Him to praise good cause I yet shall have' from Psalm 42.

Stop!

Just as a note, the verses I shared are written from memory, so any mistakes are mine.

Today's quote....

Those that fear God are his beloved; they are dear to him as the apple of his eye. They are often in distress, but they shall be delivered. God's own right hand shall save them; for those that have his heart have his hand.

Matthew Henry

Half full, half empty, or overflowing?

fill my cup to overflowing
"What is God's promise? I will fill thy mouth with good things. There is enough in God to fill our treasures, to replenish every hungry soul, to supply all our wants, to answer all our desires, and to make us completely happy.......And we may have enough from God if we pray for it in faith. Ask, and it shall be given you. He gives liberally, and upbraids not. God assured his people Israel that it would be their own fault if he did not do as great and kind things for them as he had done for their fathers. Nothing should be thought too good, too much, to give them, if they would but keep close to God."

Great faith

SermonsOfRobertMurrayMCheyne Over the last few days I've been reading in this little book. It's really good, and I've thought more than once while reading that I wish I could have actually heard him preach. While it's all been good, one sermon on Matthew 27:46 has stood out for me. I read it, then I read it again......it reminded me somewhat of this sermon: A Cry From The Depths, that I shared on here over a year ago. I wish I could share the whole thing, but that would be too long, so I shared one of his points on faith below. I hope it encourages you all too.

 "My God, My God."
These words show the greatest faith that ever was in this world. Faith is believing the word of God, not becasue we see it to be true, or feel it to be true, but because God has said it. Now Christ was forsaken. He did not see that God was His God - He did not feel that God was His God; and yet He believed God's word and cried: "My God, my God."

David shows great faith in Psalm 42:7-8: "Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of Thy waterspouts: all Thy waves and Thy billows are gone over me. Yet the Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the nigh His song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life." He felt like one covered with a sea of troubles. He could see no light, no way of escape. Yet he believed the word of God, and said: "Yet the Lord will." This is faith - believing when we do not see.

Jonah showed great faith: "All Thy waves and Thy billows cast over me, then I said; I am cast out of Thy sight, yet will I look again toward Thy holy temple." (Jonah 2:3-4). He was literally at the bottom of the sea. He knew no way of escape - he saw no light - he felt no safety; yet he believed the word of God. This was great faith.

But, a greater than Jonah is here. Here is greater faith than David's - greater faith than Jonah's - greater faith than ever was in the world, before or after. Christ was beneath a deeper sea than that which covered Jonah. The tossing billows of God's anger raged over Him - He was in outer darkness - He was in hell; and yet He believed the word of God. He does not feel it - He does not see it - but He believes it and cries: "My God."
"Though He slay me yet will I trust in Him."

Dear believer, this is your surety. You are often unbelieving - distrustful of God; behold your surety - He never distrusted - cling to Him - you are complete in Him.

Shower Pictures

Today I wanted to share some beautiful pictures that one of my friends, Caroline, took at a baby shower last week. Another friend, is expecting her first baby in August and the ladies at church threw her a shower on Thursday evening. It's always good to spend time with friends, but this was the best shower I've been to because of the devotional given by another friend, Mrs. B. She talked about godly parenting, having a godly home, and even I was able to walk away with something from it. I especially appreciated when she said that we should try to never have a day where children don't hear the word of God, or prayer. Looking back I realize I can say that of my childhood which is something to be so thankful for. If the Lord gives me children I hope they will be able to say the same someday.

Mrs. B  and I scooping ice cream.

We made a cup like this for everyone.

Listening to the devotional.

Visiting together.

Opening gifts!

The means, or the end?

Our sermon from yesterday morning on the verses from the beginning of Luke 22 is on my mind today. It really was kind of a scary sermon in that it showed how close one can be (Judas) and yet have no grace. Though there was a lot more to the sermon; what has stuck with me and I'm still pondering today, is this question which was in regards to Judas being disillusioned and disappointed by what Jesus was doing. The question:
'Is Jesus the means to the end for me (or you), or is He the end?' 
Am I just looking to Him to give me what I want and save me from hell, or is He chiefly what I desire? It's a lot think about.......




"Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.
And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.
Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.
And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.
And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.
And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude."
Luke 22:1-6

Psalm 71

"In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.

Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.

Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.

Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.

For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.

By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.

I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.

Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.

Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.

For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,

Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.

O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.

Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.

But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.

My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.

I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.

O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.

Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.

Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!

Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.

Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.

I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.

My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.

My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt."

As of late

100_1496
I've been keeping very busy with different jobs,  Cephas and I have teamed up and started cleaning the church once a week. Cephas brought us this yummy meal one evening when we were cleaning. His explanation for getting a salad? I would be mad if he showed up with all fried food. Well I wouldn't have been mad....but the salad was awfully good:-). Thanks Cephas!


100_1497
My biggest news is that I now have a car! Pretty exciting, and a little scary cause it's a big responsibility. But I (and everyone else involved) felt that the Lord brought me this particular car so I'll trust that He'll help me keep it on the road. Speaking of scary.....I got to have my first experience of going to the DMV, courthouse, and buying insurance - all by myself. But I did it. It always feels good to successfully accomplish something you were afraid of doing.


Pumping Gas
Now that I own a car I get to do fun stuff like pump my own gas, be responsible for my own repairs and maintenance.....alright so I'm being a little sarcastic:-)


100_1090
We had our July communion season. This was my 10th one since moving to Greenville. A blessing and cause for thankfulness.


I also had a nice visit with friends, worked on my Etsy store, have been reading in Psalms in Matthew Henry, and Moses' Self Denial by Jeremiah Burroughs, and daily learning more and more to depend on the Lord for all I need. It was a busy month!

Keeping the heart....

"Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life."
Proverbs 4:23


"The Heart of the Matter is the Matter of the Heart."
Spurgeon

Today I'm thankful for this sermon from this past Lord's day. I listened to it again yesterday while doing housework and found it so good and helpful. Recently I've seen examples of what happens when one doesn't keep one's heart, or give God one's heart, and am amazed by just how devastating and far reaching the pain is as a result of not doing things God's way. And I've seen the pain of holding onto bitterness and resentment. All this, and the sermon, leave me wanting to once again commit my heart to the Lord, to commit to living in a way that pleases Him, and to pray for His help and grace to do that. I hope this sermon will be equally convicting and helpful to anyone else who finds time to listen.



"The heart is that which the great God requires and calls for from every one of us; whatever we give, if we do not give him our hearts, it will not be accepted. We must set our love upon him. Our thoughts must converse much with him, and on him, as our highest end. The intents of our hearts must be fastened. We must make it our own act and deed to devote ourselves to the Lord, and we must be free and cheerful in it. We must not think to divide the heart between God and the world; he will have all or none. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart. To this call we must readily answer,  
"My Father, take my heart, such as it is, and make it such as it should be; take possession of it, and set up thy throne in it." 
Matthew Henry

Your strength is to sit still......

A friend loaned me this book that I have been wanting to read and it's been really good. Below I shared part of what I read last night which I hope others might find helpful too.


mosesselfdenial"Although you think you have no strength to encounter such great trials as you are likely to meet with, yet labor to quiet your hearts in the exercise of faith alone, for that will bring in strength enough. Whatsoever you think would strengthen you, you shall find it in the exercise of faith. Isaiah 30 is very observable. Your strength  is to sit still. 

"....Their strength is to sit still.....In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.."

They thought their strength had been in the help of Egypt, as if nothing could help them but Egypt. "No," said God, "If you would quietly rest your spirits in me, you would have an Egypt. Whatsoever strength you expect from Egypt, you shall have it here."

When sufferings come, then stir up and put forth the grace of faith in the exercise of it; look up to God for strength and assistance; commit yourself and your cause wholly to Him; plead the promise; plead your call; that He has called you to this; plead the cause that is His.

Master William Tyndale, in a letter to a friend in prison gave four expressions of the work of faith in suffering,

"If you give yourself, cast yourself, yield yourself, and commit yourself wholly and only to your loving Father, then shall His power be in you, and make you strong. He shall set His truth by you wonderfully, and work for you above all your heart can imagine."

The True Shepherd

I'm reposting today. I shared this the first time almost two years ago and have gone back and reread it for comfort a time or two.......Here it is again for my newer readers.

sheep walking


"....Last of all there is another character of the true shepherd here mentioned, and that is, "He goes before them". In the countries of the east, brethren, you know that the shepherd goes before the sheep, and they follow him. When he says, "let us go the well," they follow him. When he says, "let us go down into that dark valley," they follow after him. So it is with Christ. Christ never asked a sheep to go where He never went Himself. He has borne all that He calls His sheep to bear. Christ went in a lower level of sorrow than you will be called to bear. Do not be alarmed then when you are called to suffer, you will not be called to go where He has not gone. Do not be afraid to put down your tender feet where He has put down His. And it is still true that He goes before you. "When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." Do not be afraid then when Christ is before you."


From a sermon by Robert Murray McCheyne, The True and False Shepherd, on John 10:1-6

God's Will

I need this reminder today -


Accept God's will daily.

Padlock God's will is the lock of the night and the key of the morning; we should open and shut our eyes with the thought of placing our lives in His hands. All resistance to suffering stems from the root of distrust; and unbelieving heart stands on a promise the way a man walks on ice - awkwardly and fearfully at first, wondering if it will crack. Now this daily resignation will bring you into a oneness with God's power, faithfulness and goodness - and will let you experience the reality of His promises, so that you may rely on them in the future.


Each morning then, entrust your whole heart, and all your ways into God's hand. "The poor commiteth himself to Thee; Thou art the helper of the fatherless." Psalm 10:14. And every evening, look back and see how perfectly God has kept you in that trust. Do not fall asleep until you have opened your heart to be flooded with His faithfulness - and purpose to trust Him to take care of you through the coming night. Then if you do experience disappointment, watch for God to fill that emptiness. And again, do not rest until God's name has been fully vindicated in your heart. It is important not to let any dissatisfaction slip into your spirit because of His sovereign decision on your behalf. Instead keep a close reign on your thoughts the way David did: "Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God." Psalm 42:11. Once you have done this, God's blessing will keep your faith "in breath" and increase your stamina for a longer race when it is time for you to run it."
The Christian In Complete Armor by William Gurnall

Psalm 70

"Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord,

Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.

Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying."

Thoughts on communion....

As we prepare for communion season this weekend these thoughts from Andrew Bonar's Diary on his communion seasons, are on my mind.....


The Lord's Supper

"I sometimes think that to the Lord's people dying will be very like going to the Communion Table. There is a little anxiety and sometimes a little bustle, about the going in to the table; but that is soon over, and all is calmness, and we do nothing else but keep looking upon the Lord."



"John did not rise up from the table because there was a doubt about himself and his steadfastness. He leaned all the harder on his Master's bosom."


"However weak you are if you value supremely the atoning blood, come to the Table."



 "At the communion table remember Him and forget yourself."



"Jesus is walking today among the seven golden candlesticks and He will stop at our table to see if any of us want anything from Him."



"Christ's nearer coming casts deeper solemnity over every communion."

Divided....

After watching this video that a couple of my friends shared on facebook, I had to post it on here. It's on an issue that's very much on my heart - our young people in the church. The video asks hard questions. Why are so many young people leaving the church, not interested in living for the Lord, etc, etc, and came up with some very good answers. While I'm not a parent, this hits very close to home for me. I have 12 younger siblings who I pray for every day and long to see them all love the Lord and live for Him. Then there are many other young ones in my life who are very special to me, that I have the same desire for. I'm so thankful for the siblings and younger friends I have who do show Christ in their lives.

But I'm really tired of seeing others finding being cool more important than following Christ, and seeing bad choices being made, seeing them hurt others... My prayer is that they will want to do what is right because they love the Lord and want to please Him, more than anything. And I wish these young people would realize what an influence their behavior has on the next generation - we all have lots of little eyes on us!

Thanks for letting me share what's on my heart and please join me in praying for the future of our church - our young people. Ultimately they are all in the Lord's hands and we can only cry out to Him for them.

Faithfully waiting....

I don't normally listen to Christian music, but the other day, when I was dealing with some problems, my friend sent me a link with this song (btw, I love the movie, Fireproof that it is from). I would venture to guess that every single person who reads this post is waiting for at least one thing....I don't know about you, but this is the way I would like to be found waiting! Then this morning I read this section in Matthew Henry on Psalm 63 which fit in very well with the theme on my mind.

"The best and dearest of God's saints and servants may sometimes have their lot cast in a wilderness, which speaks them lonely and solitary, desolate and afflicted, wanting, wandering, and unsettled, and quite at a loss what to do with themselves. All the straits and difficulties of a wilderness must not put us out of tune for sacred songs; but even then it is our duty and interest to keep up a cheerful communion with God. There are psalms proper for a wilderness, and we have reason to thank God that it is the wilderness of Judah we are in, not the wilderness of Sin."



I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience
While I'm waiting
I will serve You
While I'm waiting
I will worship
While I'm waiting
I will not faint
I'll be running the race
Even while I wait

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve you while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord."

One thing is needful.....

I put this post together about a week ago and now am thinking it's amazing how much life can change in just one week. But this is one thing that no matter what circumstances we are dealing with, doesn't change. In fact I'm realizing when things are hard, or we're hurting, we need more than ever to be at the feet of Christ. (...when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I." Psalm 61:2)


100_1462"But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."
Luke 10:42


The one thing needful is certainly meant of that which Mary made her choice—sitting at Christ's feet, to hear his word. One thing is needful, this one thing that she has done, to give up herself to the guidance of Christ, and receive the law from his mouth.

Note, Serious godliness is a needful thing, it is the one thing needful; for nothing without this will do us any real good in this world, and nothing but this will go with us into another world. However we may be censured and condemned by men for our piety and zeal, our Lord Jesus will take our part: But thou shalt answer, Lord, for me. Let us not then condemn the pious zeal of any, lest we set Christ against us; and let us never be discouraged if we be censured for our pious zeal, for we have Christ for us. Sooner or later, Mary's choice will be justified, and all those who make that choice, and abide by it.

But this was not all; he applauded her for her wisdom: She hath chosen the good part; for she chose to be with Christ, to take her part with him; she chose the better business, and the better happiness, and took a better way of honouring Christ and of pleasing him, by receiving his word into her heart, A part with Christ is a good part; it is a part for the soul and eternity, the part Christ gives to his favourites (John 8:8), who are partakers of Christ (Hebrews 3:14), and partakers with Christ, (Romans 8:17). It is a part that shall never be taken away from those that have it....Nothing shall separate us from the love of Christ, and our part in that love. Men and devils cannot take it away from us, and God and Christ will not. 
Matthew Henry on Luke 10


Before I end though I have to say sometimes I think we're all too hard on Martha after reading this story. If you go on to John 11 you'll see that when their brother Lazarus was sick she was the one that ran to Christ while Mary stayed in the house, and she made this testimony of her faith:

"Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God..."
John 11:27

 By the way the picture above is of me sitting on our front porch with my old, much loved, falling apart Bible - I had some free time the other day and was playing around with my camera and photo editing. Always a fun thing to do:-)

I will wait on Thy name....

God is our...
"I will wait on thy name; I will attend upon thee in all those ways wherein thou hast made thyself known, hoping for the discoveries of thy favor to me and willing to tarry till the time appointed for them; for it is good before thy saints,"....it is very good for us to wait on that name, that there is nothing better to calm and quiet our spirits when they are ruffled and disturbed, and to keep us in the way of duty when we are tempted to use any indirect courses for our own relief, than to hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord, (Lamentations 3:26). All the saints have experienced the benefit of it, who never attended him in vain, never followed his guidance but it ended well, nor were ever made ashamed of their believing expectations from him. What is good before all the saints let us therefore abide and abound in, and in this particularly: Turn thou to thy God; keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually, (Hosea 12:6)."        

Matthew Henry on Psalm 52

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
