Christian Poems David NOVEMBER 11th FROM THE HEART A DAILY INSPIRATIONAL CALENDAR by HELEN STEINER RICE TENDER LITTLE MEMORIES OF SOME WORD OR DEED GIVE US STRENGTH AND COURAGE WHEN WE ARE IN NEED. FOR THE RIGHTEOUS WILL NEVER BE MOVED; HE WILL BE REMEMBERED FOREVER. PSALM 112:6 TODAY REFLECT UPON A PAST KINDNESS AND THE STRENGTH IT AFFORDED BOTH THE GIVER AND THE RECIEVER. LOVE IS AN ACT OF ENDLESS FORGIVENESS, A TENDER LOOK WHICH BECOMES A HABIT. -PETER USTINOV- LOVE IS WHERE YOU SEEK IT- IN THE LAUGHING EYES OF A CHILD, IN A GARDEN LUSH WITH COLOR, IN THE SOFT WARMTH OF A LOVED-ONE'S EMBRACE. THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF LOVE ANYWHERE...ONLY SEEKERS. UNKNOWN BELOVED, LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER, BECAUSE LOVE IS FROM GOD; EVERYONE WHO LOVES IS BORN OF GOD. 1 JOHN 4:7 THE LOVE OF A FRIEND HAS OFTEN SEEMED LIKE MY LIFE PRESERVER, KEEPING ME AFLOAT IN TURBULENT WATERS. UNKNOWN LOVE IS NOT JUST TOUCHING OF TWO HEARTS; IT IS THE BLENDING OF TWO LIVES. UNKNOWN AND NOW FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE ABIDE, THESE THREE; AND THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE. 1 CORINTHIANS 13:13 STREAMS IN THE DESERT DAILY THOUGHTS FROM THE DEVOTIONAL CLASSIC by MRS. CHARLES E. COWMAN DO NOT TAKE REVENGE, MY FRIENDS, BUT LEAVE ROOM FOR GOD'S WRATH, FOR IT IS WRITTEN: "IT IS MINE TO AVENGE; I WILL REPAY,"SAYS THE LORD. ROMANS 12:19 THERE ARE SEASONS WHEN TO BE STILL DEMANDS IMMEASURABLY HIGHER STRENGTH THAN TO ACT. COMPOSURE IS OFTEN THE HIGHEST RESULT OF POWER.

ACTS 1:8 I AM NOT COMPETENT IN MYSELF TO CLAIM ANYTHING FOR MYSELF, BUT MY COMPETENCE COMES FROM GOD. HE HAS MADE ME COMPETENT AS A MINISTER OF A NEW COVENANT, NOT OF THE LETTER, BUT OF THE SPIRIT; FOR THE LETTER KILLS, BUT THE SPIRIT GIVES LIFE. 2 CORINTHIANS 3:5-6 A GENTLE ANSWER TURNS AWAY WRATH, BUT A HARSH WORD STIRS UP ANGER. THE TONGUE OF THE WISE USES KNOWLEDGE RIGHTLY, BUT THE MOUTH OF THE FOOL POURS OUT FOLLY. PROVERBS 15:1-2 SINCE I HAVE GOD'S PROMISES, I WILL CLEANSE MYSELF FROM ALL POLLUTION OF BODY AND SPIRIT, PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD. 2 CORINTHIANS 7:1 LORD, I THANK YOU THAT ALL THINGS COME FROM YOU AND THROUGH YOU AND THAT YOU HAVE EMPOWERED ME THROUGH YOUR INDWELLING SPIRIT. I THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME COMPETENT TO MINISTER: HELP ME TO USE MY TONGUE WISELY AND KEEP MYSELF CLEAN AS I SEEK YOUR HOLINESS. MAY THE LOVE OF CHRIST BE WITH US TODAY AND ALWAYS! IN JESUS NAME WE PRAY, AMEN. What does it take to live a life of hope? Nothing more than a willing heart... Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. -Romans 12:12- Have a nice day Sunday my friend filled with lots of peace, comfort and happiness in the love of Our Lord...May God's richest Blessings be poured upon you and all you love... Sending you my love and prayers...God Bless you.... Your forever friend....David I Was Lifted Up On Angel's Wings by WhtDove I was lifted up on Angels' wings, And through the Heavens soared. When I came upon a brilliant light, I found it was my Lord. With hair like snow and eyes of fire, I bowed before His feet. In His presence it was hard to stand, My sins felt like concrete. Head hung in sorrow, tears filled my eyes. My mouth, it couldn't speak. My sins were overpowering me. My soul, it just felt weak. A gentle hand reached out to touch me, A voice like thunder spoke. The love He gave enveloped my soul, My heart no longer broke. He put His loving arms around me, Such peace that I felt then. I was quite content in knowing that, He'd do it all again. Our righteous acts are like filthy rags, The Lord reminded me. Come in unto Me my precious child, For I can set you free. I was lifted up on Angel's wings, And through the Heavens soared. I had been forgiven my sin and... My soul had been restored. In every moment of every day God is by your side, ready to help, guide, and protect you. Seek Him, and you will find Him. When in Need of God’s Presence In every moment of every day God is by your side, ready to help, guide, and protect you. Seek Him, and you will 5nd Him. WHATEVER YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, be sure that God watches over you. Because He loves you, and since God Himself is love, you can be con 5dent that you are never out of His sight, nor His loving concern. How can you make yourself believe this? First, repeat it to yourself. Repetition is a powerful method of persuading the mind to accept a truth. Epictetus called it the most classical of all studies. It brings about acceptance. Thank God constantly for watching over you and protecting you. After every journey, thank Him for His protecting care. In every di 4cult situation, thank Him for seeing you through. Visualize your loved ones as always being protected by the everlasting arms, and supported by the great hand of God. In this way, you will be sending out protecting and guiding thoughts that God will use for their protection. Help God to protect your loved ones and yourself. A 5nal technique is to commit to memory many of the following Bible passages that deal with the protective love of God. Every day, repeat them to yourself, meditating upon them with gratitude. The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth. (Psalm145:18) Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5,6) In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. (Psalm 56:11) Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you. (I Peter 5:6,7) If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.
