Hello, Saturday

 6.11.10

Good morning, Saturday!

It is very cold this morning; I am still on my pj's and coffee is almost ready; I am ready to bake some orange scones for my family, I am sure they would love to wake up and find some warm treats... I will be back in  a minute.

 ************

Here I am ready to enjoy the day; the scones turned out great! You should give them a try! (Petra, if you are reading this...I thought about you while baking them, hope one day we could have a real "tea- party" with our friends!)

Today I want to share with you my grateful note....

I am grateful for my dear friend Eileen, for all the effort she has been putting into writing our Philippians study. She has done an incredible job, and has put a lot of effort into it. This is the first time I have studied a book like this, and I have learned a lot. It has been a joy to dig into the Scriptures and treasure these words in my heart.

If you have not followed the study I encourage you to start it today. It is here for you, take advantage of it; I am sure you will be blessed and you will also exercise some discipline into the constant study of the Word of God (there is homework for 5 days of the week). You can start on the introduction, or directly into week one.

I wrote this prayer after one of the studies (based on Philippians 1)



Thank you, Lord, for remembering me and my children; 

I glorify you, O God, from whom all grace and peace flow.

Thank you, Lord, because you have called me to be part of your family, 

to have partnership in the gospel with the saints around the world.

Thank you, because whenever I see my sin, 

whenever I struggle to mortify my flesh, 

your Spirit remind me that it is You who began the good work in me, 

it is by grace that you have called me and by grace that I will finish the race; 

it is You who will complete the good work in me. 

It is not because of me, but because of you, and on this promise I rest assured.

Lord, help me not to forget in my prayers those who are suffering persecution for the gospel's sake, 

and help me to be ready, if the day comes, 

to stand firm as the saints who have been willing to die joyfully while defending and confirming the 

gospel.

Father in Heaven, help me to abound in your love, in your Word, 

that I might be ready to discern and approve what is excellent in your sight, 

and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ;

let my life be fruitful at all times, 

in every season, 

let me bear the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ,

to the glory and praise of God.

In Jesus' name which is above all names.

Amen


Have a wonderful Saturday, dear friends.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
