The Feast Of Trumpets

The first of the Fall Feasts of the Lord 2017 started at sundown September 20 through September 21. It’s called Feast Of Trumpets. It is called Yom T’rooah in Hebrew. It is also known as Rosh Hashanah, Head of the Year, and is celebrated as the Jewish New Year.

The blowing of the Shofar announces God’s Manifest Presence.

Exodus 19:13; Leviticus 23; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

In the picture above of the apple and honey represent God’s provision and sweetness that He will manifest to us in the coming year.

Blessings as you celebrate and feast with the Lord!

#atozchallenge – Only You

O.jpg

Only You – The Platters

Only you can make all this world seem right

Only you can make the darkness bright

Only you and you alone

Can thrill me like you do

And fill my heart with love for only you
Only you can make all this change in me

For it’s true, you are my destiny

When you hold my hand

I understand the magic that you do

You’re my dream come true

My one and only you
Only you can make all this change in me

For it’s true, you are my destiny

When you hold my hand

I understand the magic that you do

You’re my dream come true

My one and only you
One and only you

The ‘Only You’ in my life is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Hope you find or know your ‘Only You’.

Karma Chameleon I

After I responded to what I thought was today’s  daily prompt I went back to find that this prompt was from April 18, 2015 and was connected to my prompt for today. Can’t remember if I wrote about it then but here it is now.

This just in: let’s pretend that science has proven that karma is a thing. Your words and actions will influence what happens to you in the future. How (if at all) will you change your ways?

Proverbs 18:21 in The Message (MSG) Bible says:

Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit-you chose.

Science does nothing but prove the Bible is correct-as if it needed to be proven.

I keep in mind that the words I speak can kill or give life to me or someone I speak to or about. With that in mind I choose my words carefully. If I can’t say something good I won’t say anything at all. I may wonder why someone does or say a thing. But at the end of the day only God knows the true intent of the heart which so often makes the lips speak.

Remember don’t commit suicide or kill anyone with what passes through your lips today.

Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other – He Knows

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other.”

Write a six-word story about what you think the future holds for you, and then expand on it in a post.

He knows His plan for me

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NLT

My future was ordained by the Lord before I was knit in my mother’s womb. It is for good and not evil. He has given me a future although it hasn’t fully unfolded before me. Along with the future came hope. That hope is what I hold on to when I can’t see anything resembling a future. One thing I have to remind myself of is what I see as my future might not look like the future the Lord as put together for me.

For that reason I keep in constant contact with Him through looking and listening and being quite so I can hear the still small voice that’s booming loud and clear.

A to Z Blog Challenge 2015 – Jesus Is

Jesus is the reason for the seasons. I’m not talking about Christmas but every season I’ve been through and will go through in my life.

He’s the rock I can lean on when I need to be steadied. He comforts me when I’m in the midst of turmoil. A dependable friend right here when my earthly friends have scattered in various directions.

Jesus takes my hand and becomes my guiding light on the dark and dreary path of life. He’s my Intercessor that keeps me on his list making sure I get what I need and roadblocks appear to keep me going in the right direction.

I’m glad we met many years ago and there’s no comparison anywhere.

I’ll stick with him on the sure path he has me on.

Kislev – First Fruit Celebration

This week the congregation at GZI celebrated First Fruits and the Hebrew month of Kislev. This new month of Kislev is the month that we enter the beginning of Hanukkah, an eight-day celebration that commemorates the rededication of the Temple. During the Feast we celebrate that the oil and light never go out! This is also a month of dreams, as well as the month linked with the tribe of Benjamin.

We give thanks for the bountiful blessings we receive every day of the month from the Lord.DSC01185
