Is It Possible

Is it possible to love without limits

Is it possible to forgive no matter who’s at fault

Can love be allowed to flood your very being

While joy is your strength as love overflows

Let down all defense and open your heart

Let unconditional love do its part

Don’t lose sight of me

I’m here right where I’ll always be

So you can reach out and touch me,

Caress and hold me

Let the comfort flow that we each enjoy

Love me like you mean it

Don’t treat me like your toy.

Something you can pull out today

And when you’re tired of me you put me away

If that’s what you want to do

I’ll turn and walk away from you.

What’s Going On

Today I went to the Post Office to purchase postage stamps. As always I was asked which stamps I wanted. I looked at the samples and was surprised to see one of my favorite entertainers from times past-Marvin Gaye.

I remember not too long before his life was taken I won tickets to see him in concert through a radio station give away. My seats were wonderful. There were seats in front of me blocking my view. I could actually see what was going on. He gave an awesome performance that evening. It was a real treat for me.

ARE YOU READY

Are you Ready? Ready for what, you say. Marriage when Father God releases your husband to find you or your wife to be found. When the time comes will you be ready? You might be saying what do you mean be ready? 

Have you considered what you are about to commit to when the marriage proposal is at hand? Do you realize your life won’t be solely about you. When you make plans there is another person to consider. Your decisions are plural, not singular any more. These are just a few things to think about.

Marriage is a covenant. It is a serious commitment. It is more than planning the most elaborate  wedding of the century and going on the honeymoon of a lifetime. Spending your last dime on a house bigger than you can afford does not make for a great marriage. After all of that then you may be saddled with a lot of debt unless you’ve been saving for years. If you’re not careful that debt load can become a problem in your new marriage. There have been many divorces over money problems.

Entering into a covenant is when you are so connected to a person that death will be the only parting factor between the two of you. You are willing to take the back seat and relinquish what you want for what the other person desires. It’s just like when Jesus died for us to redeem us back to God. Marriage covenant should be just like the covenant God has with His people. He is with them through the good and the bad. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13 (NIV)

Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not boast. It is not proud. It does not dishonors others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs, Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophesies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

In Ephesians 5:33 (ESV), Paul writes, “let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”

Are you willing and ready to love someone with the everlasting love of 1 Corinthians 13? Can you see yourself committing to someone until death parts you? Now is the time to seek the Lord and be ready with an answer.

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!
