Messages From Above

God is calling….not just me but all those who sit quietly and wait on Him…


 

A Message from God 1

Resting in the shade on a beautiful cool, crisp afternoon, I’m in between responsibilities. My love for life grows like the spring flowers on my porch. Nothing compares to gifts from God! The hummingbirds have flown south due to the encroaching season. This is a most beautiful time of the year. God above all, turns His harvest to many shades of amber and gold. Every tree is a different shade; I sit in amazement of all his splendid wonders. What an awesome Father we serve!

God protect and save the child that tries to live by your Holy Words from heaven.

I hear the bells that praise Your name and Christ, on High, delivers us from evil. A peace comes to calm the quiet and remaining still, I drift off like a fawn wandering in a meadow. Though my body may be old and tired, my soul rejuvenates by Your spirit. So I try to put into words that which is expressed from the mountaintops. God is calling….not just me but all those who sit quietly and wait on Him. It’s a wonderful feeling to have His spirit penetrate my tomorrows!

 

Isaiah 40:31

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

 

Casting the seed to the winds as though the sparrows will nurture, God shall bring them wisdom for they know not which way to fly. He is our only direction. Keeping us near His bosom, we desire those dreams of our heart.

I pray for every person that my writings touch you in some way. May they help pave your pathway to our Father. For it is He which saves the weary, cleanses the heart and strengthens the spirit on a cool, crisp afternoon such as this.

A Message from God 2

It’s a miraculous feeling to be a mere servant….to hand carry this message from God. We all need to hear it – it’s the first and every lasting word from above.

The Miracle Of Grace

Only God, and his ability to forgive us, keeps the chain of grace continuing on….


What does grace actually look like…..and the miracle of grace?

 

Psalm 145: 8-9
“The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The LORD is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works”.

 

Miracle of Grace cover

Standing on the edge of a mountain top, I look across the range. Storm clouds have passed and I’m standing under the blue. Feeling the sun from within, I know God is abounding. Reverently, the valleys are shaded from harm; I can see God’s grace protecting them. What a breathtaking sight! Standing 10,000 feet up, I know everything below my feet is blessed by grace from God’s eternal love. Infinitely, the animals protect their offspring and the balance of power is ultimately His. Even the dead branches serve in His kingdom….a perch for those that prowl.

Oh, but the meanings of grace (biblically called Charis), are far and wide. Grace by itself is a miracle to behold. It may be the birth of a child, the lame walking; a devastating accident and the victims walk away unscathed; a tree slides from a mountain top and lands in a creek right side up yet it still lives for years to come. Disasters happen but we should give God the glory for His merciful grace.

It’s also a miracle that two lost souls may find their way back together again after a lifetime of disappointments – only by His grace, my friend. Everything works out to the glory of God. There’s nothing better than happy endings! Love, by far, is the most powerful gift of grace. We share the miracle of grace tonight.

 

Miracle of Grace 3

 

Only God, and his ability to forgive us, keeps the chain of grace continuing on. As the sun reaches to the west, we give thanks for another marvelous day. We pray for those less fortunate….may God’s grace be bestowed upon thee. I thank God for the opportunity to just to sit here and think about the blessings He has brought me- the Grace of His love never-ending.

Miracle of Grace 1

We all are to be so thankful, for God gives grace to those who have faith, are humble, and forgiven. We receive forgiveness according to the riches of God’s grace, and grace drives our sanctification.

 

Ephesians 1:7
“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace”.

 

I pray for His grace, comfort and protection, like the mountains and valleys do after a fearless storm has passed. God bless you, all my friends!

 

Hebrews 12:28
“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear”.

The Last Dance

God watches the intentions that connects the spirits of the heart and instills hope….


The Last Dance 1

With best intentions, my integrity precedes and daily obligations manifest. Never would I ever believe the twists and curves I’ve been through. My life has now led me down a path of heaven’s way. From the gates of hell to the silver reflections as oceans wash ashore, God has certainly protected the innocence of my heart.

With riches from gifts that cannot be assessed, blessings pour from my writing hand to yours. Wanting to do my best for readers to share, my wealth now lies in God’s hands. In all the years of tribulations and trials, only a couple of bright spots exist in my mind – my son and daughter. My life appears as a child’s chapter story book. And I know many of you can relate.

The Last Dance 4

God watches the intentions that connects the spirits of the heart and instills hope. Though we wait in frustration, our souls hold on to faith. He allows our tough times to happen to test out our dreams before He gives us our gift. It is against all logic that He then places certain people in our lives to carry out His purpose. How can one not be in awe of His works??

 

As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
~ Isaiah 55:9

 

Personally, in my eleventh hour, hell appeared to be an avalanche of no escaping. Miraculously, God heard my dreams that rang out years before. Saving the best for last, as an old Philco of songs we knew every word to, she waltzed back in for the final dance. A Scandinavian blond, with babes in hand, brushed my conscience with her poise and presence. The embryo of unforgotten love was held on to as the years moved onward.

The Last Dance

 

As seasons gray and gravity plays games, 20/20 reminisces with bifocals. But the band still plays our favorite tunes. Now embraced, I’m dancing my last years with her! Cheek to cheek, looking into teary eyes, I see dreams of fulfillment.

 

The Last Dance 2

 

Pray for your dreams and hopes and see what happens. Share it with me – I would love to hear your story! For it is He that now controls my destiny and yours too. What an awesome God we all serve!

And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.
~ Matthew 21:22

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
~ Ephesians 3:20-21

Can ‘One’ Make A Difference?

If you pursue the gift God has given you, He will ensure that it becomes successful….


Can One Make A Difference

On a sunny morning in August, a young skipper pacing the docks patiently waits. An escorted entourage appears on the pier; the young man kneels and takes a hand. Kissing her hand, she looks at him and a tear falls on his cheek. “Fear not my lady I shall return.” Shaking her head she replies, ” I bid you safe travels. With a king’s ransom, I pray for you. So away with you,” he hears. The lines are chopped and the tiny fleet of three heads not south, but west, into the sun. Was the earth flat? They’ll find out!

Did he make a difference? Just ask the people of the Bahamas.

 

Working in his shop, the candle oil burns to the wick night after night. The phone rings. “Thomas, can you come here please?”….. No longer in the dark, finally, the filament glows. Living in the dark was a thing of past.

Did he make a difference? Just ask GE.

 

As the auto engineering race headed onward, another sat quietly in his attorney’s office. He had drawn up the way we contain our leftovers. My dear old granddad designed the screw top lid!

Did he make a difference? Just ask any bottling company.

An illustrator dabbled in charcoal when he wasn’t busy. Now retired from a local hometown paper that started his career, he sketches for Boy’s Life.

Did he make a difference? Just ask the Saturday Evening Post.

 

Getting on her hands and knees, she asserted her muscles to scrubbing and disinfecting every inch of the hospital. Later, a queen rewarded her with an engraved brooch and $250,000 for making sanitation a necessary change.

Did she make a difference? Just ask any hospital.

 

What a beautiful morning to just open up a window and sash! Thank you to the first woman to be awarded a U.S. Patent. She lets us have fresh air in our homes.

Did this female make a difference? Just ask Anderson Windows.

 

Who would of thought a man could stand on the bow of a boat and write a poem of what he saw? Four years later, his brother, John Alfred, (who by the way gets no credit) took an Englishman’s music and applied it to his poem. And to this day we sing it at every event.

Did he make a difference?  Just ask any flagmaker.

 

There’s many others….the Jobs, Gates and even Zuckerberg. One person can change the world!

The stories untold….. “for God so loved the earth that He gave His only begotten son, Jesus Christ to change the world….” Indeed, God sends one person at a time to alter our way of life. Let us not forget it is God that blesses them with their creativity. So, don’t we all have a chance to change the world?? I think so….

With tired and heavy eyes, I owe my life for the gift I received from God above. Committed like Moses to do God’s work, we all have venues where God’s mission in our lives plays a part. If you pursue the gift God has given you, He will ensure that it becomes successful. What an awesome guarantee!!

Can One Make A Difference 2
I pray tonight for us all to become what God wants….to make a difference – one by one. Make a spot in your world or someone else’s today!

Who’s next? Will you allow it to be you?

As Christians know, we are here for a purpose — to do God’s work!!!!

 


Matthew 19:26 
“But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”

 

2 Timothy 1:7 
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
