Happy Halloween!

Have a safe and happy Halloween!

An Apple a Day: Psalm 84:3 (NIV)

~3. Even the sparrow has found a home and
the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have
her young--a place near your alter, O Lord
Almighty, my King and my God.~

We are no different than the sparrow.  After
we are saved or born again, we have found
a home or nest in God's Arms!  In fact,
His spirit lives in us! Let's thank God
for this earthly home, sheltered in the
arms of God.  ~~Amen~~

An Apple a Day: Psalm 23:1-3 (NIV)

1)The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2) He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3) he restores my soul.

I love these verses. It  reminds me to 
whenever possible; to rest in the presence
of my Shepherd.  How crazy is this world
when people "feel guilty" about meeting the
basic need of rest and peace that God built
into our being.  

We need to rest and depend more on God, and
he will shower Peace on all our paths.
Have a blessed day.~

An Apple a Day: Psalm 21:6 (NIV)

Psalm 21:6 (NIV)
"Surely you have granted him
eternal blessings and made him
glad with the joy of your

No matter what your circumstances
are today, you can find Joy in God's
presence.  It is easy on days that
are good and happy!  The test comes
when your days are overcast and gloomy;
and you feel the strain of the day, which
seems endless.

But remember, this day is not a chance
occurrence, God created this day. God is
with you even when you don't sense him.

Joy is attainable!  Search for it as for hidden
treasure!  Talk to God about your day, and soon
your load will lighten, and joy will seep into
your day.  Be aware of God's presence with you
and embrace joy as it returns to you!
Hope you have a blessed day!

An Apple a Day:Job 1:21 (NIV)

"Naked I came from my mother's womb,
and naked I will depart.  The Lord gave
and the Lord has taken away; may the
name of the Lord be praised."

Job went through many troubles, yet

he did not sin by charging God with

Ask God today to bring to your awareness

any resentful attitude you may be harboring.
Ask God to free you from them.

When God thwarts our hopes or takes

something from you, it is best to not
hold resentment, but remember that every
thing you have are gifts from God.  We
are not entitled to anything that is ours, but
should feel gratitude for them.  We must
be "prepared" to let go of anything God
takes from us.  But don't ever let go of
God's hand!

An Apple a Day: Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV)

~~1)Therefore, since we are surrounded by
such a great cloud of witnesses, let us
throw off everything that hinders and the
sin that so easily entangles, and let us run
with perseverance the the race marked out
for us. 2) Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the
author and perfecter of our faith who for the joy
set before him endured the cross, scorning
its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the
throne of God.

Today Lord help us to stay conscious of you
throughout this day. Your presence is a promise
and a protection to us.  Help us not to take our
our eyes off of you, lest we fall in pits of self-
pity, despair, pride and self--will.  Let us be
aware of your presence all day, everyday.
This is our greatest protection!
