Thrust Them Out Lord!

Or should I say "us"?

Came across this verse in the Amplified Bible

Matthew 9:37-38
37 Then He said to His disciples, The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few.
38 So pray to the Lord of the harvest to[a]force out and thrust laborers into His harvest.

I have never seen this before.  
So I will begin to pray this as commanded. 

 I pray He will thrust YOU 
and you pray He will thrust ME 
and THEM  
and THOSE!
So that the world may know!

He Only Has Eyes ....

For you!!

Watching an old show with mom the person said...."I think they have eyes for each other"

Interesting wording right?

Some might say "doves eyes".  Un distracted and unable to focus on more than one thing at a time.

Isaiah are precious in My eyes and I love you....

Ok so His Love for you is certain
How about you....does He have your undivided attention?  Your Whole heart?
I'm afraid He will not be satisfied with anything less

Ask for His Grace to draw close to Him
He promises to do the same!  James 4:8

Dove’s Eyes by Misty Edwards

Dove's Eyes - Misty Edwards - YouTube

I don’t want to talk about You like You’re not in the room
I want to look right at You I want to sing right to You
I believe that You are listening
I believe that You move at the sound of my voice
Give me dove’s eyes
Give me undistracted devotion for only You.

Now You See It ~ Now You Don't

God's Word sure does have the Power to Convict

That is WONDERFUL NEWS right!?

Matthew 6:1-4

When you give....give in secret....don't let your right hand know what the left is doing.

Now I've had success with this before but there have been times I may have shared something I did with a couple of people.  I think in my excitement of being "led" I just leaked ;)
The Pharisees "blew their own horn" and purposely brought attention to themselves.

I am going to take this to heart and be thoughtful to this command

Father.  Sometimes You ask us to live incognito.  Help us....
I pray that GIVING will be Your mark on Your children..


We are simply to be His Servants....called to do His bidding.

HE Knows!

Matthew 6:8
"....your Father knows what you need before You ask Him"

Ummmmm.   So why bother?

He loves to hear your voice
He cares about your cares
He watches and listens

Let's look at it from a parenting view

You know your young watch and take note
Sometimes you wait....wanting your child to come and talk to you....even more so when they grow older.  You never tire of them and you pray that you will have favor in their lives and that they will seek out your wisdom and advice.  Nothing satisfies more!

Well I think our Father feels the same!

Also I think that God wants us to realize the truth of that Scripture and be willing to just sit in His Presence in faith, trust, comfort and peace knowing FULL WELL He has control over every thing that concerns us wonderful is that?

Practice Sitting  in His Presence  in thanksgiving and rest proving your faith, trust and security

I LOVE THIS!  He makes my life easier!
My prayer life can now just be filled with Praise!!   HE KNOWS!

Will I or Won't I

Today I was feeling "hemmed in"
I longed for freedom and no constraints.
My service to Mom felt like a noose around my neck. (I'm sorry if that offends)

I wanted to attend my Bible Study (that's not bad right?)  I wanted to be free of someone constantly calling my name to ask where I was, what I was doing.
 I wanted a "grown up" conversation.

Harmless.             ?

I felt the prompting of the Lord.
I began to read His Word.

I came across  Romans 15:5-6

Now may the God Who gives the power of patient endurance (steadfastness) and Who supplies encouragement, grant you to live in such mutual harmony and such full sympathy with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,
          6 SO THAT  you may unanimously and  with united hearts and one voice, praise and glorify the God             and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ .

United hearts,  One voice?   
Ah yes
I needed to silence the voices in my flesh ...
I needed to submit my divided heart and simply

How difficult is that?   Well after I've "done away" with my flesh it's not so hard
 but killing that old man sometimes seems to be a real chore especially if my Sword is dull.  :)

I'm better because His Word is alive and creative.  It is doing It's work in me and I will remain on the "wheel" until I'm finished

The Helpless

Thinking today about 
the Helpless
the Homeless
the Least of these

How often have I just walked past?
How often have I said in my heart;
..."someone else's responsibility" 
.... "not my business"
.... " I don't have anything to spare"
..."They have chosen this life"
.... "I'll be taken advantage of" ?

I've decided that that is wrong thinking
Its God's Business not ours.
In Matthew 25 He has directed us as to what to do.

Everyone DOES NOT have to do Everything!

What will you do?

First of all I'm simply praying 
that the Lord will make me mindful of this.

   That He will help me 
   to see differently, 
 hear differently.

I'm going to make myself ready.
Whether it is to make 
small care packages of toothpaste, brush, soap etc.  
buy packages of socks and underwear
have some "ready" food items on hand and/or
gift cards for coffee or a sub.


I will be ready.
and when those things have been given out 
I will ready myself again

How about you....
I think I now know what the "Samaritan's Purse" stands for.

Home on the Range

Well Friends,

We have not chatted in a while....

My life has been stretched the past months with mom, the holidays and life in general.  Everyone is doing well here on Pumping Station Road and in one month mom and I will celebrate her 2nd full year living with me.  I find myself doing what I said I never would or could and trusting God  Bigger and Better.

I have missed certainly does not mean that I have stopped it seems I do that really well ~ all of the time!  

I am trying to get on a new format called Mail Chimp and have been having some technical difficulties getting set up so I ask for your patience as I try to iron things out.  But you will be hearing from me once again.  MC gives the unsubscribe option along with  a nice readable format ..I only hope I can get it together

As I sit in my office watching SOME MORE big fluffy flakes come down from the sky I am thankful for each and every one of you and once again .....   an old hymn comes to mind

God will take care of you!  Today and everyday!!

With Diligence
