Remember

God blessed me with finding this wonderful blog post, at Song of a Wanderer. It was titled “Remember”. I  was really at a loss for words what to comment, and I still am.

It was so easy to understand, follow, and achieve, it was just right :

Remember

“We come here tonight to remember Jesus.”
Something in my soul stirred, a flicker of life from deep inside.
Remember.
Remember Who He is.
Remember what He’s done.
Remember who you are because of Him.
Remember.

So often I don’t. I get caught up in the daily routine, the swing of normality, and I forget.

I forget Who He is.
I forget how He saved my life.
I forget that He made me something valuable, a beautiful rose from the ashes of who I was.
I forget.

Remember Who paid your debt.
Remember Who set you free.
Remember the life-debt you owe.
Remember Jesus.

 

 

The Same For You

20170513_103338
Challenges, challenges everywhere
Where they come from I don’t know, and I don’t care
I call on the Lord and keep Him near
He’ll keep me safe until it’s clear
He shelters me, and sees me through
And God will do the same for you

Real Neat Blog Award

Maggie at Dreaming of Guatemala nominated me for this Award. Thank you Maggie, you are so sweet. Maggie’s blog is full of inspirations, accomplishments, blog spot lights, and delicious, tasty treats recipes :) She’s very supportive to all bloggers and shows lots of respect for her fellow bloggers, as well. Her love for God is amazing. Thanks Maggie, for the nomination, being a great blogger and a wonderful friend :)

  2. Why did you choose the profile picture you’re currently using? It is a picture of our beloved cat who passed away a few years back. Seeing him makes me happy, so, I figured it was a way I could still see him everyday, several times a day.
  3. Are you organized or disorganized? Organized but I am getting better about being less so.
  4. What’s one of your favorite words? God, although that is really a name, isn’t it? I don’t care it makes me happy so, God is my favourite word :)

I only have one question: (sorry for breaking the rules)

  1. Do you believe Jesus is your Lord and Saviour?

Thanks again Maggie for thinking about me and nominating me.

If You Want a True Blessing

One of my dearest friends, Bright Walker, a beautiful lady, that I’ve known for over 25 years recently told me she has started taking photographs again. It’s a real passion of hers. Bright began taking daily walks, and snapping some pictures with her phone. Bright  started an Instagram account and started posting her pictures.

Bright is one of the purest souls I have ever met and it shows in her pictures, and inspiring captions. If you want a real blessing today, go and see Bright’s beautiful photographs. I know you’ll love them as much as I do.

Bright’s Instagram is https://www.instagram.com/brightsingingbowls/ just incase you missed it :)

God Bless you.

Stand

20170513_102655 God You are the One I want to serve
You’ve given me more than I deserve
Always I want You to be my Guide
Never again to be fearful, or run and hide
Lord, I don’t always clearly see Your plan
But always I’ll follow, and on Your Word I’ll stand
