Seeds of time...becoming fruitful

wikpedia image


THIS IS THE DAY Seeds of faithfulness...yield fruit.

My Pastor shared with us last night during our weekly prayer meeting; of a young man who called him to say THANK YOU. A young man he hadn't seen in YEARS.

More than 13 years ago, my Pastor was asked to debate another Pastor about some Bible Doctrines. The other Pastor would quote the "man" he followed and his own interpretations...while my Pastor always used KJV Scripture. During this time this same young man...was in the meeting listening. A follower of his dad's religion.

He spoke with my Pastor about the troubled heart he has had ever since that meeting! Though he stayed in this religion many more years, even to the point of becoming a Pastor himself...admitted that the day of the debate, he was IMPRESSED by the fact that my Pastor used nothing but Scripture to prove these doctrines of truth in the GOD of the King James Bible.

He testified that he came out of his DECEPTION! and believes the BIBLE with all his heart.

Over TIME...after this seed was planted...it began to bud and blossom as the photo shows in the perfect illustrations found in creation..by our GOD.

During this time of watering...another Pastor spoke only the Scriptures to prove GOD. He too mentioned the importance of SCRIPTURE with SCRIPTURE!!

This young man, as he preached...became convicted each time as SCRIPTURE he had begun to read... comparing Scripture with Scripture.... bore truth in his heart against the very words he was preaching and in his deceptive religion. He could no longer believe this false religion.

Many years....but fruitful in it's time.

God knows...how encouraging....as we wait on the LORD...and LET HIM...bring forth the fruit of righteousness and a heart seeking TRUTH.

THIS DAY...once again...in Gods faithfulness...I am...ENCOURAGED
to be faithful...to wait on the LORD...and see the GOODNESS OF THE LORD!

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8

I pray this day...you also are encouraged!!

THIS IS THE DAY...LET US REJOICE...AND BE GLAD IN IT!!!

My Favorite Furry Friend...

This is my GUS.



He is the most obedient pet and so much fun!

He has his own Fan club believe it or not!! Whatta DOG!

Many admirers...He's just that way. To know him...is to love him

One character...



His eyes speak volumes...


as does the cocking of the head!! So funny.

"Can you say that again...please?"

He can catch a ball in mid air and flip around as he does it! I guess he thinks he is "Circus Dog" ??


I don't know about other Schnauzers...we did have one...a sweetie..but GUS..well he is just... One of a kind!!!

He does not let me out of his sight...what a protector and buddy.

I don't dare mention C....A....T....S use to be my favorite pet...

If you say the S word...Squirrel...he runs soooo fast it's a blurr!

One day last week...not having my glasses on yet (early let out for dog) He was just jumping to go out...
oh you saw an S...okay
...but upon letting him RUN...I noticed the grey blurr was a poor grey tiger Kitty!!! I was yelling..
RUN KITTY...RUN KITTY
...he made up the fence as one HUGE FUR BALL..whew. Relief. He looked like he hit an electrical wire!!!

Gus is adventurous so I know there will be more post about him in the future.

What kind of pet do you have?

THIS IS THE DAY...I appreciate God's sweet creations, that bless us in numerous ways. Gus has helped me in many a lonely moment. He's just there.

Blessings...

God of Our Fathers....July 4th


On Independence Day...July 4th.

THIS IS THE DAY...

We all who are patriotic and love our America, joined in festivities, celebrating FREEDOM...Bravery...safety of our loved soldiers home...thankfulness...and the HISTORY of our country that has made it great...FOUNDED by men of FAITH and HOPE and THE BIBLE.

How oft have our FOUNDING FATHERS quoted scripture in their applications and desires of God's intercession and wisdom in putting forth the CONSTITUTION of our AMERICA...

...and the FOUNDING FATHERS of our FAITH.

Men who followed God's commands and HIS will over theirs..men who stood strong on the leadership of Godliness.

In church Sunday we sang this hymn.

God Of Our Fathers

God of our fathers, whose almighty hand,
Leads forth in beauty all the starry band
Of shining worlds in splendor thru the skies,
Our grateful songs before Thy throne arise.

Thy love divine hath led us in the past,
In this free land by Thee our lot is cast;
Be Thou our ruler, guardian, guide, and stay
Thy word our law, Thy paths our chosen way.

From war's alarms, from deadly pestilence,
Be Thy strong arm our ever-sure defense;
Thy true religion in our hearts increase,
Thy bounteous good-ness nourish us in peace.

Daniel C. Roberts 1841-1907 George W. Warren 1828-1902

These words as we sang...brought joy to my heart; knowing I have trusted in this same GOD of Faith. I have watched his hand of mercies, not only in the our history of America, but in my own life.

I love the music to this hymn also. Our orchestra has played this with the trumpets sounding prior to the words sung..and so majestic and powerful.

If you have never heard this hymn...search it out. It will bless you!!

Keep the DEPENDENCE of AMERICA on GOD!

...and we can be that nation we have always been!!

IN GOD WE TRUST

Blessings to you!
