Praise God For His Goodness!

Here’s the song for the day!  This one works perfectly with today’s message.  When we get this attitude to stay in our awareness throughout the day, we’re sure to remain in that Sabbath Rest in His Presence.  Bethel Music does such an awesome job here!

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

The Sabbath Rest Empowered

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that God’s friendship is truly deep, intimate, and abiding.

Quoting directly from the message: “But to My subjects I have given the right to enter My Presence when they will, nay more they can summon Me to bedside, to workshop – and I am there.”  We have access to Him any time we want or need it.  We have but to call Him, and He’s there.  Isn’t that a wonderful assurance?!

When we cultivate a constant awareness of this truth, all fears, worries, doubts, etc., truly do vanish.  The Sabbath rest of walking in God’s abiding love, His presence, is empowered.  The longer and stronger our walk in that Sabbath rest is, the more our faith is empowered.

Remember Where Your Strength Lies

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that we will not always be aware of God’s guiding and leading.  There will be times when we won’t feel those wings beneath us.  We are bid not to panic or fear, but to continue on with our daily duty (s) in quiet trust.

This is where our strength lies; in quietness and trust.  Our daily duty(s) are not just in the church, per say.  We are not in the church, really anyway, because we are the church.  What this means to me is that whatever I’m given or called to do, I do as if unto the Lord.  It means that I allow the power of God to help me -because I can do all things through Christ Jesus, who strengthens me-do everything excellently; to the very best of my abilities.

God always shows us the very best way, and always magnifies what we give Him to work with, multiplying it, even to a hundred fold.  That fulfills that rule of progress in the Kingdom of Heaven.  Progress may entail a more streamlined and organized way of doing something; which results in time and money saved, and maybe increased production.  Think of how many areas of work, and even daily life we can apply that to.  You see, there is no limit to progress, because it leads us to more doors, and more creativity, etc.  So, whatever you’re task, do it as if unto the Lord, and allow the power of God to work through you…when you’re His child, that’s a given that comes naturally.  Just trust and press onward.

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

The Sea Will Part For You-Trust Him

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that we need to cling to the Lord/LORD, much the way a child clings to his or her parents.  The closeness that one thinks about when you think of a clinging child, is arms wrapped around your neck and body snuggled as closely to your own as possible.  Can you imagine clinging like that to the Lord?  It is exactly that, that is meant.  But we are not to cling fearfully or as if we were helpless.

We are to cling in intimacy and trust, or confidence; as two being one. This message goes hand in hand with Saturday’s message about having confidence that the Red Sea-whatever it may be for your or me, will surely part when we reach it.  We’re not to even think about it until we get there.  Once we’re standing on its shores, we are promised passage through the parted sea, and on into our promised land.  That’s the reason we must cling so closely that we move as one being.  This is where we find our strength, our courage, our peace, and our power.

Whether it is a month of total chaos, day after day, or a battle with weight, anxiety, depression, etc., or some health crisis that represents your Red Sea…God leads us by a cloud during the days, and a pillar of fire by night to show us the way we should go.  That tells me that I’m going to survive the heat.  It tells me also, that nothing can obscure the path in front of me, or stop me from getting to my promised land.  The chaos will not prevail, but order will be restored.  I will not lose the battle of the bulge.  I will not be afraid.  I will not be immobilized by fear, anger, or doubt-but I will have strength to rise and praise the Lord upon rising!  I will overcome and win the battles; because the Lord and I are as one.  I move in Him, and He moves in me.  This, by the way works one dependent on the other.  When I move in Him, He is more able to move in me.  As He moves in me, the more able I am to move in Him.

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

Saturday Silly – June 22, 2019

bb04e6109a02681586e08ae274c2e94b_with-two-daughter-clipart_1468-1600The doctor said he found a heart in my chest, girls, so I don’t want to hear anymore of that “Mom, you’re heartless!”  Your brothers?  Umm, I’ve cut them out of my will!  LOL  Just kidding, kids.  I love you.

Husband to surgeon:  “Well, doc, tell us the truth; there’s no heart in there is there?  Wife to husband:  “Knock it off, Aaron!”                                                                                             Surgeon to husband:  “I’m sorry, Sir, but there’s definitely a heart in there…and it says, “I love you forever, Enrique`!”  Ha ha!
