CHANGE IS POSSIBLE
Our responsibility is to respond to God's ability in humility.
(Our Daily Bread)

SCRIPTURE:
"It is God who works in you to will and act in order to fulfill his
good purpose" Philippians 2:13

When we get older, we do not like change, if you are like me you
have become a creature of habit, eating at the same place, setting
to watch TV in the same place, going to bed the same time, getting
up at the same time. Setting on the same side of the church each Sunday.
When our routine is upset, so are we! Perhaps that's why God forces change
upon us. we need to change to grow in the Lord, so if you've been forced
into an uncomfortable change...thank God...He's still working on you

THE WORD OF GOD
My Book! My Book! My grand old Book! By inspiration given!
Thy every page, from age to age, Reveals the path to Heaven!
(Beside The Still Waters)

Scripture:
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
2 Timothy 3:16

I try to thank God every day for the men and women that have gone before
me and sacrificed to much, so I can freely read His Word. I have
several translations  and can carry my Bible everywhere, know that is a
privilege, that some, even in today's world is denied. Please do not take
His Word for granted!

JOY IN HARD PLACES
Lord, no matter my circumstances, help me to find joy in You.
(Our Daily Bread)

Scripture
Yet will I rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.
Habakkuk 3:18

Habakkuk, proves that there is aways, always, something to be thankful
for. He was a minor prophet in the time of Jeremiah and like Jeremiah,
he prophesied the fall of Jerusalem to Babylon.  Not much to look forward
to, but 70 years under Babylon rule, yet he rejoiced in the Lord. Not
many of us find ourselves in such unpleasant circumstances!

STEADY STEPS:
Contrary to our physical experience, our spiritual steps should
become more and more steady as we grow older.
God's Word strengthens us to step steadily onward and upward.

physical steps, concentrate on your spiritual steps by reading God's
Word and going to God in prayer.

THE BLESSING IS COMING
Not all rewards are immediate or visible.
(Our Daily Bread)

SCRIPRUE:
"Let is not grow weary of doing good, for the proper time
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
Galaions 6:9

One of the hardest lessons in our Christian walk, is to keep hopeful
when things seem hopeless. God is always working in the background
of our lives, He may sometimes seem silent, but He's never still, He is
doing things for us...visible and invisible.

us hear Him...remember He's still working on you!

IT COSTS GOD
God chose to send Jesus to this earth as His Son. Jesus was
the only One capable of living a human life without blemish,
thus satisfying God's requirements of the law regarding payment
for human sin which began with Adam and Eve.
(Norma Privitt-Power for Today)

Scripture:
At the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
Romans 5:6

She choose the song: "He paid a debt He did not owe"
The rest of that refrain is: "I owed a debt I could not pay,
I need someone to wash my sins away."
And that is what Jesus did.

Gentleness helps us make a point without making an enemy.

Scripture:
"Let your gentleness be evident to all"
Philippine 4:5

When my granddaughter was in Kindergarten, we went to see
a performance she was in. The teacher guided them with her fingers,
she spoke very little and when she did, it was a soft voice. The kids
paid such close attention to her. Gentleness works so much better
than unkind words.
