I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight," declares the LORD.
We are to bear fruit for Him!
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in
the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me
and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:4,5 NIV
speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name isThe BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he
shall build the temple of the LORD: Even he shall build the temple of the LORD;and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit
and rule upon his throne;and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
Give ear to my words, O LORD;
give heed to my sighing.
Listen to the sound of my cry,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.
O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I plead my case to you, and watch.
Max Lucado on why you can't hold onto your children
For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
evil will not sojourn with you.
The boastful will not
stand before your eyes;
you hate all evildoers.
You destroy those who speak lies;
the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty
But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
will enter your house,
I will bow down
toward your holy temple
in awe of you.
Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness
because of my enemies;
your way straight before me.
For there is no truth in their mouths;
their hearts are destruction;
are open graves;
they flatter with their tongues.
Make them bear their guilt, O God;
let them fall by their own
because of their many transgressions cast them out,
for they have rebelled against you.
all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
so that those
who love your name may exult in you.
For you bless the righteous, O LORD;
you cover them with favor as with a shield.
The Path To Joy #1
The Healthiest Response to Life Is Laughter.
This first principle serves as an antidote to fear and sorrow by encouraging you to experience life as joyous....When you
feel momentary happiness, or you want to burst out laughing, or you smile for no apparent reason, you are glimpsing eternal
reality....In time, these moments of joy will begin to knit together. Instead of the exception, they will become the norm.
There is no better way to know that you are growing in God-realization.
2. There Is Always a Reason to Be Grateful.
This second principle is an antidote to victimization....The purpose of gratitude is to connect yourself to a higher vision
of life....Once you realize that you alone are the projector of reality, you will no longer be dominated by external events.
You will correct the mistake that lies at the very root of victimization: a belief that the movie controls you, instead of
the other way around.
3. You Belong in the Scheme of the Universe. There's Nothing to Be Afraid Of. You Are Safe.
The third principle is the antidote for insecurity....The role assigned to you is right and proper. It is tailor-made for
you, for your complete self....The voice of fear tries to convince you that you are a helpless victim of chance. The very
opposite is true. At the deepest level, the level of the soul, you are the author of everything that happens to you.
Do not worry then, saying, "What will we eat?' or "What will we drink?' or "What will we wear for clothing?'
the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first
His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow
will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:31-34 NASB
THE TREE OF LIFE...REV.2:07
You can grow all the good things in your life you want, but it comes from the SEEDS OF FAITH YOU sow. You sow and then
God will grow them. - Galatians 6:07
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
The greatest and first of them all is: Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind.
To read the Ten Commandments
In the Bible read
Why do we know Jesus?
Jesus said: But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the
Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and
I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.John 15:05
If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch,
and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. John 15:06
