Start it Right

January 1st, 2017

It’s officially a new year! Rejoice, we’re still alive and well all thanks to our Lord!

In light of a new beginning, I’d like to share a page from my devotional: God Calling by A.J. Russell, Editor.

 

Between The Years

Our Lord and our God. We joy in Thee. Without Thy Help we could not face the year before us.

 

I stand between the years. The Light of My Presence is flung across the year to come- the radiance of the Sun of the Righteousness. Backward, over the past year, is My Shadow thrown, hiding trouble and sorrow and disappointment.

Dwell not on the past- only on the present. Only use the past as the trees use My Sunlight to absorb it, to make from it in after days the warming fir-rays. So store only the blessings from Me, the Light of the World. Encourage yourselves by the thought of these.

Bury every  fear of the future, of poverty for those dear to you, of suffering, of loss. Bury all thoughts of unkindness and bitterness, all your dislikes, your resentments, your sense of failure, your disappointment in others and in yourself, your gloom, your despondency, and let us leave them all, buried, and go forward to a new and risen life.

Remember that you must not see as the world sees. I hold the year in My Hands- in trust for you. But I shall guide you one day at a time.

Leave the rest with Me. You must not anticipate the gift by fears or thoughts of the days ahead.

And for each day I shall supply the wisdom and the strength.

 

Blessings to you all! May God work for you and through you in this year to come!

-Tiffany

  1. Will you listen to The King – Jesus?

    The Star of The Show

    Jesus calls us to Himself
    When The Show begins
    We’re infants – so He humors us
    It’s “Rocky and His Friends”

    Like a little squirrel dressed up
    As a flying superhero
    We give ourselves The Title
    And zoom around the atmosphere Oh!

    I have come to save the day!
    We proclaim with a big smile
    And Jesus is my co-pilot
    So I’m always on top of the pile

    God our Father loves his children
    He is patient as we grow
    So we take another step
    It’s “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show”

    As we journey with The Moose
    Faithfully by our side
    We get a revelation
    We have to swallow our pride

    “He must become greater”
    He really is The Star
    “I must become less,” but still
    With Him I’ll travel far

    “You must follow me,” says Jesus
    In His eyes I see a twinkle
    He is not MY friend I am HIS
    Jesus is The Star – like Bullwinkle
