Those Amongst Us………

Matthew 25: 35 ~ 40

Don’t forget those amongst us who face life alone,

Don’t forget those amongst us who sit or beg on the street “Can you spare some change please”

Don’t forget those amongst us when they beg and fear, tears, uncertainty and pain is reflected in their eyes,

Don’t forget those amongst us who are tormented through lack of sleep,

Don’t forget those amongst us, who have not eaten today,

Don’t forget those amongst us who have not heard the words “I love you”

Don’t forget those amongst us who have not felt a human touch for a while,

But……….

There are those amongst us who can bless a stranger today,

There are those amongst us, who can give a smile, a touch, a hug,

There are those amongst us who can give someone a drink or something to eat,

There are those amongst us who can ease the flow of tears of those who cry,

There are those amongst who can love and ease someone’s pain,

Be kind to those amongst us and be a blessing each and everyday.

This Poem was inspired by Neil, a man I saw begging in Oxford Street on Saturday 6th December 2914. My daughter and I gave him something to eat, a hot drink and a hug. He was so overcome that he cried and I cried with him.

Pure Words

Psalms 12:6 (The amplified bible)

” The words and promises of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times over”

Recently I was reading this verse during my quiet time one morning and I was reminded about the integrity of God’s promises and word. The Word of God has integrity.

The word pure in this verse comes from the root Hebrew word ‘taher’ which means to be bright, physically sound, clear, unadulterated, un contaminated, innocent or holy.

Websters dictionary defines the word pure as:

1. Not mixed with anything else
2. Clean and not harmful in any way
3. Having a smooth and clear sound that is not contaminated with any other sound.
4. Unmixed with any other matter, free from dust, dirt, spotless and stainless.

As a result of reading these definitions, can you believe dear heart that the word of God and his promise to you can be trusted.

No matter what you are currently going through, His word can be trusted and will not return empty. At times we can be quick to believe what man
says and doubt what God says.

Meditate on his promises until your heart ignites again with the flame of hope and faith. Keep fanning the flame and let no circumstance put it out. Keep fanning until His pure words manifests and becomes your reality.

Be encouraged Dear Heart ❤️

Sow in Tears Reap in Joy

Nearly all of us at one time or another have shed tears about situations or people close to our heart. Our tears are a reflection from the overflow of pain.

Pslams 126:5 says “They that sow in tears shall reap in Joy”. The bible also says that God shall wipe all tears from our eyes. When the reaping season comes our tears of pain and anguish will be wiped away and replaced with tears of Joy.

Your tears are never wasted they ascend to God as a living memorial of your request to him. Psalms 56:8 says that God collects our tears and keeps them in a bottle. Can you imagine the amount of bottles God has and yet he is intimate with each tear drop in each bottle.

Do you remember the tears of anguish Hannah cried to God in 1st Samuel chapter 1? She desperately wanted a child and the chapter states that she was in “bitterness” of soul about her longing.

What ever situation you have lifted up to God in prayer, your tears of sorrow will be turned to tears of Joy. Continue to cast that burden up to God, release your heart to him in prayer because he has you and the situation you are going through in his hand. He has promised to never leave you or forsake you. He has said that his name is written in the palm of his hand.

The Lord is your glory and the lifter of your head (Pslam 3:3). Be encouraged dear heart for The Lord himself is your refuge and strength. Your time to reap is around the corner.
