Does Jesus Know Me?

Does Jesus Know Me?

Do I Know Jesus?

It is possible to know all about the Bible and doctrine and yet not have a personal relationship with Jesus. We must be passionately devoted to Him. We must have an intimate relationship with Him to understand His voice. We can walk and talk with Him every day all day. He will know us and we will know Him. He is our very best friend. One we share all our secret sorrows and joys with. What a wonderful friend!

Light for Today: He calls...by name. John 10:3

Be Still...


It is easy to say we trust God when life is wonderful and fair, but the real test of faith is found when things go wrong and their are burdens to bear. Then we must "be still", reach out our hand and let God take it. We must listen to His voice and He will direct our path. His path is always the best path.

Light for Today: When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me? Psalm 56:3-4

We Are Used

Drive-Through Tree at Yosemite Natl. Park

God uses us in many ways ~ most of which we are completely unaware of. Spoken words that were not planned, a spontaneous act of kindness, a loving attitude or a simple prayerful attitude. God uses us to deposit an eternal measure of His love into many needy hearts.

taken from a reading by Roy Lessin

Light for Today: His Lord said unto Him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of the Lord. Matthew 25:21 KJV

In The Quiet

It is in quiet obedience

that we follow His footsteps.

It is in quiet reflection

that we hear His voice.

It is in quiet assurance

that we feel His rest.

It is in quiet trust

that we find His strength.

Roy Lessin

Light for Today: The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17

Think No Evil

artist: whimsy primsy

Sometimes gossip floats from mouth to ears about friends. Are you guilty of being the mouth? Perhaps it is true ~ or at least mostly so ~ but does that give you the privilege to tell the details to another? Are you adding some imagination to the story? Do you find yourself on the phone repeating the "news'? Next time it could be you that has done something foolish. Let's keep our tongues from doing unnecessary flapping!

Light for Today: Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 1 Corinthians 13:6

Burdens to Blessings

artist: cute colors

Are you crying? Are you wondering "why me?" Do you wonder why life is hard? Do you really think you deserve a perfect life? Really we deserve NOTHING! God is already giving us far more than we deserve. If you think you have it hard ~ turn those burdens into blessings. Learn to trust God more and lean on Him harder. Then you will be blessed beyond measure!

Light for Today: When Jehovah brought back his exiles to Jerusalem, it was like a dream! How we laughed and sang for joy. And the other nations said, "What amazing things the Lord has done for them." Psalm 126:1 NLB

Sing About Jesus


Sing about Jesus who died to save,

Who for my soul His life He gave;

Sing, for He's reigning above the grave,

Sing about Him, yes, sing about Him,

Sing about Jesus, my loving Lord,

Sing about Him, sing about Him;

Sing of His goodness in sweet accord,

Sing about Him, yes, sing about Him.

B. Elliott Warren

Sing about Jesus today (all day) in your heart. He has done so much for us. He is ALWAYS there whenever we call on Him. He is never too busy for us, no matter how small our problems may be. No one loves us like Jesus. Blessed be His name!

Light for Today: Blessed be the name of the Lord. Job 1:21

We Can Trust Him

artist: Trina Clark

We need to put aside our own selfish desires and find what God wants for our lives. He always has the BEST plan. We CAN trust Him. We can trust Him COMPLETELY with every part of our life. Our past ~ that He will forgive and forget our wrongdoing if we ask Him. With our present ~ because He knows our thoughts and feelings and what we are struggling with. Our future ~ because He has a plan for our life. He LOVES us.

Light for Today: For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Small Tasks

Look for small tasks that no one else wants to do. Do those little things as if they were great things. (Rick Warren)

Measure Your Life

the smiles you have shared

the people you love

the number of hands you have held

the stories you have listened to

the tears you have wiped away

the number of prayers you utter

the trials you've overcome

the knowledge you've gained

the friendships you've offered

the support you've given

the hope you've furnished

the memories you have accumulated.

Let Jesus Touch You


The Bible doesn't say we will never have trials, sadness or disappointments. But it does say we can come to Jesus in our need and ask for His touch. Don't be afraid to ask Him today for a healing touch.

I Choose Joy


I can't control the weather.

I can't control the people.

I can't control aging.

I can't control death.

I can't control the prices.


I can choose what I think about.

I can choose to count my blessings.

I can choose to learn from my mistakes.

I can choose to forgive.

I can choose faith when the way is dark.

I can choose to let the past go.

I can choose to have hope.


Light for Today: The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17 NLT

Heavy Heart


Do you have a friend that is carrying a burden causing her to have a heavy heart? Are you willing to share that burden? Are you willing to also have a heavy heart? Are you willing to spend time at night in prayer? Ask God to let you have part of the burden. It will ease the load on your friend so her heart will not be so heavy. Gladly help her bear the burden. You will be blessed.

Light for Today: Bear ye one anothers burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

Guarding thoughts


What you think ~ you are.

We can choose what we fill our minds with. If we choose bad thoughts they will eventually destroy us. If we let our minds go as they will we will soon have thoughts that are like thorns and thistles. Don't worry! Rather give thanks. By thinking and meditating on God's word we fill our minds with truth. We will become more like Jesus. Think about God and keep your mind pure.

Light for Today: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. Proverbs 23:7

Tuesday, August 3, 2010



I love sunshine and I thank you for it,

But just as much I thank you for the storms.

Because of the storms I cling tightly to Your hand

And realize I need Your strength.

Without reservation, I yield myself

to You

So that You can do with me

What is best and brings glory to Your name.

Light for Today: Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3

And There Came A Lion


One would not think that a lion was a special blessing from God but it could be God's opportunity in disguise. Every difficulty that comes our way is God's opportunity if we choose to let it be. We must recognize it as God's opportunity no matter how loud the lion's roar. The lion that came to young David was a wonderful opportunity. If he had faltered and not taken the lion by the beard and killed him he probably would never have come to be God's chosen King of Israel.

Light for Today: And David said unto Saul, thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion... 1 Samuel 17:34
