Thank you for your prayers!!! Now I been praying for the Lord to help me with my stress and procrastination and putting things off and being defensive to some in my family!!! I had the jeeters for sure and couldn't focus on anything!!! I just lay in my be moaning and almost shedding a tear of distress!!! Give me a break, I'm 52 and couldn't deal with my problem!!! I got up and read a spanish language but forgot my glasses and I dragged my self out of bed and took some broken glasses lying around and crashed into bed again!!! And I thought, I just listen to the Lord one more time before I totally turn off or tune off and continue my pity party!!! Let's turn there, ["...1Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill: 2And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes. 3And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard. 4What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? 5And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: 6And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. 7For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry..."] Before I go on, I read this portion and turned in my bed and looked at the wall, I couldn't see what the Lord wanted to tell me then!!! Now the Lord has given me the best life ever, every amenity and care, but I had a distraction that would not let me concentrate and every little intrusion would tip me off!!! The Lord me that he had heard my prayer for putting my thoughts together to get things done!!! But I just couldn't find the handle of the matter everyday!!! But I don't know how it happened that I figured and later found out it was your prayers, that the Lord not only wanted to me give good vine fruit, he wanted me to ask for the most excellent thoughts and meditation to entertain my brain-mind!!! I was bringing out wild grapes and instead of the good wine to share with freinds!!! And God let me moan and complain for a long time and I know thinking about his word, there not more excellent than that, but in the wait period, I was not praying to be useful still between harvest seasons!!! And I have peace to know that the Lord will have me have peace so I can put out more excellent wine and rightly God says that he looked for judgement, for righteousness, and behold he saw people crying and that made him sad, that well me, I wasn't praying like I should!!! God I know that now I know that, God expects nothing less than the best!!! My mediocre offering will not be as right as my best gift to God!!! I was not aware I was giving my God a blind goat, or a lame kid to his altar!!! And now I know what kind of dedication I should give God the next time I lift up my soul to him!!! Many blessings. Amen. thbg
I have a recurring vain thought of a vision of spaceship flying through space and encounters all sorts of wormholes and vortexes and in this blog I came out of a vortex in a quite uncertain way, lke coming out of curb in a mountain!!! The disclaimer is that the widow with the two mites did have something wonderful to offer!!!
Let's turn there for you widows out there in Christianblog Land,
["...1.Mark 12:42 (Whole Chapter)
And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
2.Mark 12:43 (Whole Chapter)
And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:..."]
And God is not impressed with big things but with little simple sincerity!!!
And simple faith goes along to accomplish big impossible things!!! Do you realize this site is a worldwide ministry, calling to join all hands???
May you be blessed. Amen.
The Lord gave His Best for us.. how can we ever do less?
Only when we allow the enemy to let us forget... lest we forget Gethsemene.. may He lead us to Calvary
May I be willing, Lord, to bear
Daily my cross for Thee;
Even Thy cup of grief to share,
Thou hast borne all for me.
Lest I forget Gethsemane,
Lest I forget Thine agony;
Lest I forget Thy love for me,
Lead me to Calvary.
Thank you ptl for you communion in this message.
["...May I be willing, Lord, to bear

How easy, easy it is to forget, what our Lord hasth done for us!!!
["... 1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Kidron, where was a garden, into which he entered, himself and his disciples.
2 Now Judas also, who betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus oft-times resorted thither with his disciples.
3 Judas then, having received the band of soldiers, and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
4 Jesus therefore, knowing all the things that were coming upon him, went forth, and saith unto them, Whom seek ye?
5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, who betrayed him, was standing with them.
6 When therefore he said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
7 Again therefore he asked them, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth..."]
And Jesus saw Judas and the entorage of soldiers and crowd, he knew what time it was!!!
