As for Me and My House

20170915_164838

“But as for me and my household we will serve the Lord.”

Joshua 24:15b

So here God is bringing the Book of Joshua to a close. And he is challenging the people with choosing or making the right choice.

He is asking, Who are you going to follow? There are so many ways we can go in our world today. Will we walk with the One who has made us all?

Will we turn to Him daily, laying down our own lives? It is not a matter of praying a quick prayer, and suddenly “we’re in”.

An initial prayer is supposed to be only the beginning of a faith filled life!

Heavenly Father help us to choose to follow you each day! Fill us with faith and hope, as we make the right choices!

Amen and amen.

The Meditation of My Heart

20170628_154130

“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart

be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and Redeemer.”

Psalm 19: 14

You see it’s not simply a matter of saying the right things, or sounding good. God has always been concerned about our hearts. Words that are pleasing to Him are good, but our hearts need to dwell on that which is good also.

When we follow God we should want to do what is pleasing to Him. Faith is not just a feeling. Faith is a way of life.

Heavenly Father help us to live lives pleasing to You. Help us to dwell, to meditate, on things that are good! We praise You God, and thank you for working in our lives. Amen and amen.
