Magnify

October 31st, 2013

Wow, I am still so embarrassed about the text of yesterday’s post. These ramblings are quite often full of bad grammar and typos, but not one that changes the meaning so violently. Anyway, i am glad you are able to move past it and not unsubscribe.

Today is All Hallows’ Eve, a very interesting holiday that you should spent a little but of time reading about. But in modern times it’s become the start of the Holiday season, and that’s because OCT 31 = DEC 25 ( math joke!).

So to celebrate this “holiday ” here is a little song from Disneyland.

With all this talk of souls and spirits, my mind goes to this quote from Mary.

And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, (Luke 1:46 KJV)

Let us let our souls magnify the Lord on this day dedicated to spirits.

OH MAN!

For Good

October 30th, 2013

I love this part of the story of Joseph the best. Joseph responds with such grace and mercy to his brothers. It is impressive to see how he knows that God is working through him. Let’s follow his example today as we let God use us for good.

As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. (Genesis 50:20 NASB)

With him

October 29th, 2013

I don’t have much time to write this morning, but I did hear someone talking about Joseph, the great leader of Egypt and how The Lord was with him even when things were just a little tough for him.

Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined. But while Joseph was there in the prison, the Lord was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden. (Genesis 39:20, 21 NIV)

Think about that and know that he is with you as well.

Great Expectations

October 28th, 2013

I had thought I had read the entire Psalm multiple times over my short time on Earth, but I saw something yesterday that I did not recall before. That’s one of the great things about the words of wisdom found in all the 66 books of the Bible. There are always additional nuggets waiting to be discovered. I mean seriously look at this

Listen to my words, Lord, consider my lament. Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray. In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. (Psalm 5:1-3 NIV)

I can’t believe it had noticed the last part of this before. ‘ I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. ‘. What a great thought to be reminded of. The creator of the world is ok that you do this as well, which is even more amazing! What great requests are you honestly waiting for with great expectations today?
