A Prayer for Good Health

20161105_130136

As I get older Lord God, and this tent I’m living in continues to wear thin,

help me to take care of it, to respect this gift, the life you’ve given

and if it is Your will, please reduce the pain, give me wisdom

and keep me healthy. Amen.

A Cheerful Heart

20170915_165534

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

Proverbs 17:22

Did you know that being happy is like medicine? Or maybe it is medicine!

Now we all go through terrible things, disappointments, and sometimes we even get crushed internally. But God does not want us to live there. It’s not good to dwell on, and be overwhelmed by the negative.

Yes, there are traumatized victims that may need therapy, and professional help, but for those of us that are able, the Lord, the King of the Universe, the One who made us all, loves us so much he wants a cheerful heart for us!!

Lord God, You know everything, and that there are times we don’t feel like being cheerful. Help us, encourage us, and help us to be healthy internally. Help us to trust in you! Amen.

God is Light

20160912_144715

“…..God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.”

I John 1: 5b, 6

Have you ever met someone that talked a great deal about faith, and never really lived it? What a mess that can be!

We know that God is perfect and yet we are not. So, some may look at this verse and ones like it, and say that if there is any sin in our hearts at all, we are doomed!

And yet this is more of a warning to all of us, not to lie to ourselves. It does not speak to our occasional mess ups, it does speak though to being phony, or not living out our faith, not living for Him. That really is walking in darkness.

Fortunately there is forgiveness, and we have an advocate with the Father!

Heavenly Father help us to live for You and rely on Your grace working in our lives. Forgive us when we do mess up, and help us to live for You! In Christ’s name, amen.

A Note of Thanks

20170609_205835

First of all I want to thank each of you, for being here and reading these posts. More importantly thank you your faith, and your examples of faith that are so encouraging!

I also wanted to let you know that I am not a professional blogger, I make no money from it, and I have nothing to sell. Which means I work a job, and one with very difficult hours at times, so there are occasions where I will not be here for a couple of days, reading your work.

I do look forward to reading your work! I have several blogs because of my love for writing, but this is my faith based one, so it is very important to me.

Thanks again for reading!
