Forget Not His Benefits

Originally posted on Revelations In Writing:

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. – (Psalm 103:2-5, NIV)

My soul, praise the Lord and never forget how kind He is! He forgives all our sins and heals all our sicknesses. He saves us from the grave, and He gives us love and compassion. He gives us plenty of good things. He makes us young again, like an eagle that grows new feathers. – (Psalm 103:2-5, ERV)

No matter what our present lot in life, we have reason to praise the Lord. If we have given our life to Him, we are forgiven and set free from eternal death and darkness, and…

Nature of God!!

Originally posted on New Heaven on Earth!:


God’s nature is Love, Spirit, Truth and Light! God is Light and in him there is no darkness at all! God’s nature is perfect love that casts out all fear! Our only commandment in the new covenant of perfect oneness with God, intimate relationship with God as bride to our Husband, is to love Him and love one another as ourselves!!

Jesus comes with the clouds; our suddenly, God filling our body temple with his Christ Spirit, comes as refiner’s fire and fuller’s soap to refine the gold hidden in your body, the hidden splendor of Christ in you!!!! Your innermost being is Christ, the hope of glory: the eternity, love, peace, joy, righteousness, holiness, godliness, light and Spirit of God! Let there be light; and there is!!

When we see Jesus face to face and we behold his glory, he begins to purify, refine and make our soul white…

Quiet Time

Originally posted on Martha L Shaw - Poet, Writer, Artist:

I sit in silence

as a gentle breeze refreshes me

and brings me new life.

Your love’s quiet strength

restores me like none other.

I am yours.

I Did NOT!

Originally posted on Martha L Shaw - Poet, Writer, Artist:

I have a friend who wakes up all aglow and usually singing.  My late Mom often woke up singing church hymns.  Me?  Clear the way!  I need my coffee, shower, and quiet-time!  Yes,  I sometimes awaken in song, but not too often.  Not today.


How we feel does not need to rule the day.  Hope is within us

freedom thoughts

.  Pray with me . . .


I give my all to you and

ask that you enable me

to reflect your joy and hope

on this day and always. Amen


In you, Lord my God,

    I put my trust.

Psalm 25:1

When I stand alone

I cannot hear the music

but when instead I hold your hand

the lyrical voices of freedom, hope, love and peace

make my heart soar!
