Love God and get busy

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! No sun this morning and the prediction is for rain later on, but that's okay, since we have not had rain for a week or so. We are slowly creeping into fall with high temps in the eighties and low at night in the low seventies. Feels good!

After I did some grocery shopping yesterday, I drove to the park and saw freshly mowed grass, squirrels, of course, and an egret in the canal.There were quite a few people out enjoying the sun and fresh air. Then, later on, I went to the Post office and since it was close to the Dunkin' Donuts, I picked up three pumpkin muffins. They are huge and so good! I am glad when pumpkin season rolls around, just so I get their muffins! I can only eat half at a time, but that makes them last longer. God is good! ( am not brave enough to try the latte.)

From the little devotional book Knowing God:

So don't get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time.
Galatians 6:9 NLT
The old saying is both familiar and true: actions speak louder than words. And , as believers, we must beware: our actions should always give credence to the changes that Christ can make in the loves of those who walk with Him.

God calls upon each of us to act in accordance with His will and with respect for His commandment. If we are to be responsible believers, we must realize that it is never enough simply to hear the instructions of God, we must also live by them.
And it is never enough to wait idly by while others do God's work here on earth; we, too, must act. Doing God's work is a responsibility that each of us must bear, and when we do, our loving Heavenly Father rewards our efforts with a bountiful harvest.

It is by acts and not by ideas that people live.
Harry Emerson Fosdick

Today's Prayer

Dear Lord, I have heard your Word, and I have felt Your presence in my heart; let me act accordingly. Let my words and deeds serve as a testimony to the changes. You have made in my life. Let me praise you, Father, by following in the footsteps of Your Son, and let others see Him through me.

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

Love and hugs,
