almost noon devotional

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! Who knew we would have a rainy morning? When I stepped outside about 5:30am, the crescent moon was shining brightly amongst the sparkly stars in the eastern sky, which was clear at the time. Well, anyway, this is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!

On my way the dentist, which is why I am so late, I saw a beautiful rainbow right in front as we traveled west for awhile! God is Awesome!

I walked Saturday morning out to Mama Gator's nest and spoke to her. The water is now so high that she is completely covered except for her head. I saw lots of lizards running about, and once more, dragonflies flitting all around, hopefully catching mosquitoes. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Why should I be faithful?

Proverbs 3:3-4
Never let loyalty and kindness get away from you! Wear them like a necklace, write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will gain a good reputation.

One of our greatest securities in life is that of a good name. Faithfulness brings a good reputation and trust from others. When we have problems, sometimes our reputation can be the key to a positive outcome.

Hebrews 3:14 if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed we will share in all that belongs to Christ.

A reward in heaven awaits those who are faithful to God. Faithfulness brings eternal rewards.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
