Monday Quotes!

Peter Marshall

1902-1949

Most of us know perfectly well
what we ought to do;
our trouble is that we
do not want to do it.

Has This Nation Forgotten?

Has this Nation forgotten,
The men who spoke and wrote these words,
Give me Liberty or Give me Death,
and the men who
fought and died for Freedom?
Abba, Yet You Remember!
Has this Nation forgotten,
The men who fought and died,
under the Stars and Stripes
that could only be seen
by the Rockets Red Glare
and Bombs Bursting in Air?
Abba, Yet You Remember!
Has this Nation forgotten,
the men who Fought and Died
At the Battle of Bell eau Woods,
on the Shores of Normandy,
For the Raising of the Stars and Strips
at Iwo Jima,
In the Jungles of Vietnam,
Middle East Desert Sands?
Abba, Yet You Remember! 

Abba Father, Thank-You
For Your Grace upon this Nation
Abba Father, Thank-You
For Your Love for this Nation
Abba, May I
Never Forget!
Amen.

God’s Love!

This week there has been a lot of post about Love so here is a little something I have found on the subject:

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?….

Love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High: for He is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish.

Luke 6:32, 35 Revised Standard Version of the Bible, copyright 1946 and 1952

While We Pray

God does not love as we love; God does not

Love us for any loveliness within

Our hearts and souls; He loves us knowing what

We are in all our selfishness and sin.

God does not love us weakly, with a blind

Indulgence; He must change our lives, since He

Is holiness, inexorably kind,

From what they are to what they ought to be.

~

We love the lovable, the wise, the good,

Those who return our love, those who have done

What we desire; but God’s fatherhood

Loves each ungrateful, selfish, loveless one.

God does not love as we love, but we may

Learn how to love as God Loves, while we pray.

Jane Merchant “The Greatest Of These” 1954

Monday Quotes!

A. W. Tozer

1897-1963

“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of One Accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers met together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become ‘unity’ conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.”

GRAMDMA’S PRAYER!

Many of you have read my testimony if not it can be found here:

https://menofoneaccord.wordpress.com/2012/09/06/a-son-off-the-edge/

A few years after I was saved my Aunt gave me my Grandma’s Bible sometime around the year of 1997. I placed it on a shelf and forgot about it. My Grandma died in 1970 and that is when I started to live the wild life. She was the grandmother on my mother’s side the one who I was raised by, and that is a story for another day.

In 2001 I was going through some hard times and was trying to figure out what my place was in God’s Kingdom. So I got Grandma’s Bible out and started to look through it and found this note. It was a note to me and it was written out on a note paper. Maybe to be written later on the back page of her Bible but she never got around to doing so. I called my Aunt and ask her if she knew about the note. She  did not and confirmed that Grandma would often write out things on scrap paper before she would later write them someplace later. My Aunt told me the Lord laid it heavy upon her heart that I needed to have Grandma’s Bible.

When I think that back in 1966 Abba had my Grandma write to me words of encouragement that I would need in 2001, is mind-blowing.

The note reads:

Dear Jimmy, I will sign my name back here. So you can always remember your Grandma. I hope Jimmy you will always serve the Lord. I will pray for you. Do what the Lord would have you do.

John, 3:14-16 Sept. 25, 1966

Grandma’s prayer is still being answered to this day as she now worships around the Throne of our Abba Father, Amen.

Monday Quotes!

A. W. Tozer

1897-1963

“God knows instantly and effortlessly
all matter and all matters,
all mind and every mind,
all spirit and all spirits,
all being and every being,
all creature-hood and all creatures,
every plurality and all pluralities,
all law and every law,
all relations, all causes, all thoughts,
all mysteries, all enigmas, all feeling,
all desires, every unuttered secret,
all thrones and dominions, all personalities,
all things visible and invisible in heaven and in earth, motion, space, time, life,
death, good, evil,
heaven, and hell.”

Looking for a Fight!

I went out today to pick a fight,

The one I went looking for

goes by many names;

Liar, Deceiver,

Murderer, Destroyer,

Devil, Satan.

You will never guess

were old Satan

was to be found?

I do have an ending for this, but the Holy Spirit said stop right here. Ask your brothers and sisters of WordPress how they might write an ending to this? Think about it, pray about it and then write about it, Please? If you would then link back here Please? This might be fun! 

One more thing to all You Moms and Grandmons:

Happy Mother’s Day!

Monday Quotes!

Charles Spurgeon

1834-1892

Our anxiety does not

empty tomorrow of its sorrows,

but only empties today

of its strengths.
