God Is Never Late

The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand.    Psalm 121:5

 In order for a tree or any plant to grow and bear fruit, its seed must first be planted in the ground and die. In order for spiritual fruit to appear in our lives, we must first be planted in the Word of God and then die to self. In the face of chastening, adversity, discipline, and affliction, God's Word nourishes our lives and fruit begins to appear. But it doesn't happen overnight. It takes time and patience.
  Joseph would never have been of use to God had he not been sold into slavery by brothers who hated him, and then wrongly accused by Potiphar, who put him in prison. Even after he had told Pharaoh's cupbearer he would be restored to the king's court and asked him to tell Pharaoh of his unjust imprisonment, Joseph had to wait two more years for release from prison.
 As we wait upon the Lord, He may sometimes seem slow in coming to help us, but He never comes too late. His timing is always perfect.

It was Love

I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. Jeremiah 31:3
  Many people have difficulty believing God is a God love. "How could He be," they ask, "when the world is filled with so much suffering and evil?" It is not an easy issue but if you really want to know the reality of God's love, look at the Cross.
 It was love, divine love, that made Christ endure the Cross, despising the shame.
 It was love that restrained Him when He was falsely accused of blasphemy and led to Golgotha to die with common thieves. He raised not a hand against His enemies. It was love that kept Him from calling legions of angels to come to His defence.
 It was love that made Him, in a moment of agonizing pain, pause and give hope to a repentant sinner who cried, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom" (Luke 23:42)
 It was love that cause Jesus to lift His voice and pray, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do" (Luke 23:34)
 Does God love us? Yes and the proof is the Cross.

A phone call

Look who Andrew got to talk to. Mary and I try to call each other once a week. Just because she lives all the way in Boston. So I was talking to her and look who else wanted to talk too. Andrew was so cute. He was laying on my bed and listening to Mary sing and talk. Mary thank you for your time and your love to this little boy. We love you and miss you.

Fall is here :)

We have been waiting for these season for a couple of weeks now. It has been here in W.V 65 to 70 degrees. Everyone is enjoying playing outside this weekend. We even cleaned up our biggest garden. Puled alot of dead flowers. Now the garden looks really nice. After that we went and bought 30 pumpkins. We always like to carve them. After we carve them we put candles in side of them and light them up. It looks really cool.

Poor in Spirit

Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.  Matthew 6:21

 One of the hardest truths for some people to accept is that there is absolutely nothing they can do to win their salvation.
 No matter how compassionate they are it is never enough. God is holy, and His standard is perfection. If  we think we are good enough, it simply proves our pride.
 Only when we see ourselves as God see us sinners, guilty before Him will we realize our need of a Savior.C.H. Spurgeon said, "The first link between my soul and Christ is not my goodness but my badness, not my merit but my misery, not my riches but my need."
 But the amazing thing is this: In spite of our sin, God still loves us. He loves us so much that Christ died on the cross for us. All we can do is believe and receive believe Christ died for us and by faith receive Him into our lives. No, you can't win your salvation but Christ has won it for you!
