We have so many things to be thankful for each and every day. But, today, as I reflected on the miracles I have witnessed  this year, the prayers answered and God’s goodness I felt led to read 2 Peter 1:3-4. Maybe God knew I needed this reminder, as we head into “The Most Wonderful Time of The Year”. He who created me knows me well, leads me faithfully and fulfills all my longings. Sometimes He does it by allowing words to be offered as a reminder of His indwelling presence,reaffirming the beautiful truths handed down to me…us all.

 

I pray these words, bless you and offer up encouragement for the approaching “season”. I struggled with the title a bit, and at last it came to me…this was not just a  “Holiday Meditation”, or a prayer for the assault to come from within and without through retailers, marketing media, and our own fleshly desires, but truly a meditation for all seasons.

 

God bless you this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!

May He be your contentment and joy!

A meditation from my morning Bible reading …I actually wrote this earlier this week as I read and pondered  1 John- one of my favorite letters in the New Testament.

May you be blessed as you read my offering and as you also seek the Living Word today.

…we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially sin that distracts us. We must run the race that lies ahead of us and never give up. Hebrews 12:1

Good Morning, Friends. Do you recall on my last post I mentioned I’d written two poems that morning? Well here is the second, based on my meditation and reflection of the readings in Hebrews. A lot really stood out to me, and as you know, every time we read scripture new insights are revealed. This is why we never grow weary reading the same books. If we approach the Word of the Living God with expectation, humility and sincerity, we will hear new things.  I know this is true for me. I pray it is for you too. Our God is an infinite wellspring of inspiration.

Great is His faithfulness!

A Better Country

 

Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind. C. S. Lewis

This morning I have written two poems. I pray this one causes you to consider the Better Country referred to in The Book of Hebrews.

A reflection on Hebrews 11-13…
