Charles Spurgeon

"Holy wonder will lead you to grateful worship and heartfelt thanksgiving. It will cause within you godly watchfulness; you will be afraid to sin against such a love as this. Feeling the presence of the mighty God in the gift of His dear Son, you will put off your shoes from your feet, because the place whereon you stand is holy ground. You will be moved at the same time to glorious hope. If Jesus has done such marvelous things on your behalf, you will feel that heaven itself is not too great for your expectation. Who can be astonished at anything, when he has once been astonished at the manger and the cross? What is there wonderful left after one has seen the Savior?"

Charles H. Spurgeon

Something to think about...

"We are too apt to forget that temptation to sin will rarely present itself in its true colors. Never when we are tempted will we hear sin say to us, "I am your deadly enemy ... I want to ruin your life."  That's not how it works. Sin, instead, comes to us like Judas with a kiss ... But we cannot alter its nature and character in the sight of God."

J.C. Ryle

Prayer needs..

Would you please pray with me for these needs?

#1. Craig, an Elder in our church, has pneumonia in both lungs and his kidneys aren't functioning as they should. He has been put on a ventilator and transferred to a larger hospital downtown.

#2. Mary, a lifelong friend of my Mom's ... was hospitalized this week suffering from delusions.

Thank you! Blessings.

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

We had a Sanctity of Human Life service at our church this morning. We need not only to pray for the groups that help women (Crisis Pregnancy Centers, etc.,) but also pray for those who work in abortion clinics. Pray that God will changed their hearts because unless and until there is a heart change, there will never be an end to abortion.

May God forgive us for our lack of care and committment to this need ... may He grant us wisdom in supporting and giving of our time in volunteering and praying for the groups who support life. Prayer does change things but only if we pray!

This was a living human being .... what would he have been like? What color were his eyes? What would his laugh have been like?
Oh God, forgive us, for we have sinned against You!

Oh it's COLD here in this part of the world!
So thankful for a warm house,
food in the cupboards,
shoes to wear,
a coat to put on should I need to go out..
We have so much to be thankful for!

Country roads...

 I don't live in an area like this, but on days like this, I wish I did.
I think.
Then I stop and think about country roads...
hard to maneuver in snowy weather.
Muddy and sloppy in wet weather.
Icy and slick in really cold weather.
But they're beautiful to look at especially
when you don't have to get out ...
so, I'll just think about them from time to time
and be grateful for what I have and where I am.
Thinking is good.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

Read this in my devotional this morning:

"We need never doubt the truth of God's presence with us. Jesus Christ is Immanuel - a name that literally means 'God with us'. Christ's life, death, and resurrection are the supreme evidence that God will go to any lengths - even paying the ultimate cost of His only Son - to dwell among His people.
God is truly with us ...
Wherever we are.
Whenever we feel abandoned or alone.
Whatever circumstances we are going through.
It is our privilege to be in relationship with God for eternity. This is why He came to earth, and this is why He died. May our lives be filled with Immanuel."

by Cynthia Heald, Abiding in Christ, pg. 31-32

Thought you'd like to read this. Blessings!

In case you haven't noticed, I've been playing with the new design templates on my blog. Not sure which one I'll end up with ... maybe just keep changing them till I find one I like. Sometimes, too many choices is not a good thing!

Blessings to you!
Hi Friends!

Happy Thursday to you all.
