Job 33:26


I have been trying to keep up with a new resolution lately–mostly with success. “It’s a bit late for a new year’s resolution, Elizabeth…” Yeah, I know. It’s not a new year’s resolution, it’s actually a resolution to conquer pride, which I have been fighting with for years. The resolution that I made to help with that, was to memorize a Bible verse every day (except Sunday, since it’s a day of rest. On Sunday I just work on strengthening the ones I memorized during the week.) So, it is from that that I bring you this verse which I found in Job. It’s beautiful, and I wanted to share it with you. The entire chapter is beautiful, so make sure you read that too! Have a wonderful Lord’s Day!

"...then man prays to God, and he accepts him; 
he sees his face with a shout of joy,
and restores to man his righteousness."
Job 33:26

I have perceived…


“I have perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him. That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away.

Ecclesiastes 3:14-15

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Deuteronomy 31:6

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.

And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope [is] in thee.

For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.

๐Ÿ“–Proverbs 3:7-8๐Ÿ“–


“Be not wise in your own eyes;

fear the Lord and turn away

from evil.

It will be healing to your flesh

and refreshment to your

bones.”


Good morning my many friends!!ย  I was reading this verse this morning, and it stood out to me.ย  You know, if you think about it, doing the right thing really does make you healthier, because you are happier!ย  The only way to be truly happy is to be truly obedient to God’s Word.

Blessings All!

Family 029 (1 of 1)

He is the son of David,

the heir of Jesse’s son,

He is our mighty Savior,

He has now for us come.

Yet He will not come in the clouds,

nor with Heaven’s trumpets blasting,

but to a lowly stable bed,

a child, to raise the living and the dead.

~Magi

Our Lord: A Poem


Family 022 (1 of 1)

As I draw near to the end of this tale;

as I read back on all the times I did try, yet fail,

and I all the days I did smile, and my heart grew steady, and hale,

I see how the hand of the Lord moves,

I see how his wonderful plan goes,

and it is a great lesson of trust in a time of need.

He is ever swift to listen and to hear;

He is ever speedy to answer the prayer,

and I realize that all through these tearful pages,

still my Lord was near.

Sometimes when things seem hopeless,

they are really a herald of hope,

for our Lord doesn’t simply help us cope,

but He gives us triumph over fear.

So with every tear you shed,

and every longing prayer whispered quietly in bed,

remember that the Lord is near;

He hears and knows your every fear,

He sees ever word you write,

and every repentant cry in the night.

Even the king’s heart is as water in His hand,

He knows the names of the stars,

and the numbers of the sand.

He knows the days ahead,

He sees the days behind,

so let your own words always you remind,

our Lord doth love, our Lord doth hear,

and the Lord ever in our hearts and our homes,

is near.

~Magi
