Psalm 34. Bless the LORD!

 

psalms_34-17

 

Praise the LORD GOD and thank You GOD for your son JESUS!!! I was listening to one of my favorite choirs, and it the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. I am touched when I her them sing. And to see that they have a mixed group of cultures there is good. For GOD sent HIS son JESUS here on earth to save all people, not just a few.

Be free of the old ways of thinking about things and be right with GOD and His son with prayer and asking for help from JESUS as He is the mediator between us and GOD. We can not make it without JESUS. No matter how hard you may try….it is impossible. The flesh is weak and GOD is strong! Break those chains of the bondage of living in the land of the lost souls without Jesus!

So I am sharing the feeling with you today as I have sent a link to the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir below. You can hear more of them on your phone when you go to the link on you tube for free.

Psalm 34 King James Version (KJV)

34 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.

11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?

13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

16 The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.

22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

 

Be blessed and never stressed. Be blessed from the reading of the word of GOD, this blog sharing it as well too!

Peace!!!

Sunday dinner of salmon cakes and Prayer.

1 Corinthians 10:31 English Standard Version (ESV)

31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Good Sunday morning to you all, or what ever time it is for you right now!

Many families now a days spend their time away from each other during the weekdays and the weekends they catch up and have a good meal at the table with each other. But when they are grown and have to take on their own responsibilities as adults….things might change and so enjoy your times together when you can.

My baked veggies in some butter.

I enjoy praying and reading the scripture with my family and then having a good meal. Being filled with the peaceful spirit of the LORD and a full tummy is a total feeling of peace and comfort for me.

My grandmother was an excellent cook and no one I know can or could have cooked as well as she could. When we had family dinners , relatives we have not seen for a while would come and leave full. I remember seeing the men eat so much that they sat in the living room loosening their belts and then falling asleep. Everyone was a hard worker and when we all got together it was either in the church or at the house catch up on things.

Deuteronomy 12:7 English Standard Version (ESV)

And there you shall eat before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the Lord your God has blessed you.

John 6:35 English Standard Version (ESV)

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.

By the time dessert was ready to be eaten, most of the family was content feeling, but when “the eyes are bigger than the tummy” things lead to the belt loosening thing and falling asleep in the living room.

Everyone said my Grandmom was a good cook. But you can tell that when she didn’t have any leftovers to speak of to put away. My Grandma was a good woman who loved the LORD and raised up her kids to do the same.

Hebrews 10:25

25. Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near

Enjoy your new year with those who truly do love you and look out for you. Do not associate with those who envy you and say evil things about you when you are not around. They do not share the heart of JESUS and share the heart of the evil one. It doesnt matter if they are family. For they are people and make their own choices on how they want to live. With GOD the FATHER as the lead, or the fallen one who is lost.

You need no distractions on you path to righteousness. None.

Be joyful, encourage others and particularly for others who are followers of JESUS. For they maybe going through a trail that is weighing them down and you may not even be aware of it. if you are being to self centered at the moment to not see it. Not everyone physically shows what they are going through, nor speak about to others. They may keep things to themselves as they are going through what they are going through.

Enjoy your meal with your family, loved ones, and friends. May this blog post encourage you and bless you as you read and share the word of GOD. #passitforward!

 

Peace!

Listening to Jane Elliott. We need to s top the hate! part 2

jane elliott 2019Ms. Jane Elliott

 

Years ago I have seen on a Oprah TV show a small and serious-minded woman tell about the ideas of this society as it is. She held no punches about what is known to us all as racial hate towards people who don’t look like the people who are starting all of this non-sense of racial division.

I have for the first time in my life to hear a white person say the things she did that touched my heart to let me know she KNEW what it was that people of color was feeling. It is a hurtful thing, abusive, immoral thing that many white people who are lost in this hate and white privilege. She said all of the things many Black people have been saying and many who wanted to say about how we are treated globally.

Her name is Jane Elliott.

Here are some of the links I have found regarding Ms Elliott:

https://janeelliott.com/

Here she is explaing we are all one race of people.Which is very true since the creation of Adam and Eve. SHe has a mission on getting rid of racial hate. I agree and would like to think I am doing my part as well as a fellow human being who loves GOD the Father!

Here are more links written about her from other people…

Just so you know, as much as 79% of the world’s population has brown eyes according to World Atlas 11/5/18.  The color break down is in more detail at this link: https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/which-eye-color-is-the-most-common-in-the-world.html.  I did not think about how many people had brown eyes until the eye test was done by Ms Elliott on the Oprah show.

 

The first time I have heard of Ms. Elliott when I was growing was awesome. It showed me that there was a White person that understood what was going on in this world to cause so much strife and division amongst the people. How she was trying to put an end to it. How she saw this as wrong. I cried. I cried because this let me know that there are is a person who thinks like I do but who does not actually have to deal with other people’s ignorance.

Matthew 22:36-40 King James Version (KJV)

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Even though Ms. Elliott is not a Pastor….she is teaching a good bibical lesson as it is written in Matthew 22:36-40.
May you all be blessed from reading and sharing this blog and the word of GOD.

Avoid negative people. 1Peter 5:8

negativity 2017

Picture from “purehappylife.com”

Hello everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed and happy new year of 2019! May GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS always keep watch over you and all of your loved ones wherever you all maybe on GODS earth!

I want to share something with you about starting your new year off with joy and peace. We need to think about the different people we come across in our travels from year to week to days and so on.

During your course of the day , of any day in your life you will meet a negative person who just seems to maybe even enjoy being negative. These people we should pray for avoid and move on.

You may have even tried to show them about being negative is not good way to be, by being positive.  You know, telling them good things, showing them the blessings in life and all they seem to come up with is a complaint or something negative. as if to turn their backs on joy.

I know many people who are suffering with this negative mindset, and I do feel sorry for them even though I do know this is a choice they have made to be.

Anyone can feel depressed at any given time, but to dwell on it is not good. It will keep you down. Until only the LORD to throw a rope to them up and out into a wonderful perfect blessing!

King David in the Bible who wrote the Psalms dealt with negativity and by reading the Psalms you do see how much he did love GOD and depended on GOD to pull him up.  GOD did just that, and he always did.

You see the trails he went through in his time of life is no different from what we as the people of today go through right now. He had his haters too, that sought after him to destroy him. When you are a loving child of GOD this is what happens every single day when you have to work or be around those who are un GODLY and hate GOD. They will see that there is something different about you and will hate you too.

Matthew 16:24

1.Then said  Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Even if you have recently been saved and now love GOD and HIS son JESUS, those people you once called as a friend will now turn against you. Hating you, because now you are different to them. They can sense it in you. You are now covered with the blood of JESUS and do have Him in your heart.

Matthew 24:9

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

What you will need to do now is to see that were you were is not where you needed to be. Those people who you once associated with will not want you around them. For their heart is not like yours now since you have accepted JESUS as your savior.

Prayer, faith , trust, understanding and making GOD your 1st best friend in your life who is THE perfect best friend to have and HIS son JESUS is 2nd because he is the son who came after the FATHER GOD in heaven. That’s how it is for me, and I am very comfortable with that too. You will see you can not depend on people, or things of the world to find your joy, for it is in the LORD. You will never be alone of feel alone when you will see that you have two very, very, very good loving friends with you at all times in your life.

Here is a site with even more scripture to read that is encouraging. For we follow the lead of JESUS our savior.

John 15:18-27 King James Version (KJV)

1If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.

23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

 

Just remember….

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Please be safe as you may choose to celebrate the new year, keep GOD 1st in all you do. Blessed as you read this blog and GODs scripture included, and pass forward the blessing to others to read as well.
