Follow Him

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! More sunshine, more thunderstorms, the same ole, same ole! But it could be a lot worse! So I am thankful for the weather we have during this hurricane season.

I have already been out to the lab for fasting lab work. I was really hungry by the time I finished, which didn't take long at all, so, since there is a MacDonald's in the same shopping strip, I ordered a sausage egg biscuit, if not for the first time, but it has been so long that I cannot remember ever ordering one before. I also ordered an orange juice and could hardly wait to get home to eat my fattening, hi chol. breakfast! But it was good to have my usual hot tea with the food. I'm really happy to have the lab so close to home.

Yesterday, after running some errands and grocery shopping after the thunderstorm, I went on to the park and was surprised at how quiet it was. Once again, very few people and not many signs of wildlife. I guess I did not get there at the right time. But, anyway, I am thankful for the birds and squirrels which are always busy!  As I left the park, I was careful to straddle a large snake that was making its way across the road! God is good!

From the little devotional book Knowing God:

Whoever serves me must follow me.
Then my servant will be with me everywhere I am.
My father will honor anyone who serves me. 
John 12:26 NCV

Whom will you walk with today? Will you walk with people who worship the ways of the world? Or will you walk with the Son of God? 

Hopefully, you will choose to walk with Him today and every day of your life.

Jesus has called upon believers of every generation (and that includes you) to follow in His footsteps. And God's Word promises that when you follow in Christ's footsteps, you will learn how to live freely and lightly ( Matthew 11:28-30)

Are you worried about the day ahead? Be confident in God's power. He will never desert you. Are you concerned about the future?  Be courageous and call upon God. He will protect you. Are you confused? Listen to the quiet voice of your Heavenly Gather. He is not a God of confusion. Talk with God; listen to Him, follow His commandments and walk with His Son--starting now.

                                                     Great Thoughts

Peter said, "No, Lord!" But he had to learn that one cannot say "No", while saying "Lord" and that one cannot say "Lord" while saying "NO.

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

Love and hugs,
