Patience!

In this day of fast foods, fast cars and fast communication we see less patience than any other time in our history. The only place we find a lot of patience is the doctor’s office. Being adopted children of God through the shed blood of His Only Begotten Son; we are to be patient. Patience is listed as a sign of growing in grace. We read in 2 Peter 1: 5-8 “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”.

Soaring!

Soon, I will be leaving,

without a jet plane,

flying without wings,

caught up in the air,

to meet the Lord of Lords

and the King of Kings.

Soon, I will be leaving,

without a jet plane,

I know why,

but I don’t know when,

when I return,

I will be in New Jerusalem.

Soon I will be leaving,

without a jet plane,

flying without wings,

to meet in the air,

my Lord of Lords,

and King of Kings!

Longings: Dear soul, do you long for a place of perfect rest? Do you long for a place where the sun never sets? Do you long to be free from toil and stress? Do you long for a place with cloudless skies, no sorrow and no goodbyes? Dear soul, do you long for painless days, and where the roses bloom forever? Do you long for a place with eternal gladness and to give eternal praise? Dear soul, that place is Heaven, with Christ to remain. Dear soul, you need no money or fame, come to Jesus, He will put you on the train! Winston Staples

Sheltered: Through the pines, where soft breezes blow, through the pines, we see traces of snow, through the pines, where birds, build their nests, a doe and her fawn take rest. In His arms, we can safely go, in His arms, we find shelter, from the wild storms that blow; In His arms, we find sweet rest, gather strength, and are richly blessed.

Homesick For Heaven: I am homesick for heaven, I have a deep longing in my soul, to see the blessed face of Jesus, and be made perfectly whole. I’m homesick for heaven, my loved ones to see, to sing praises to God, our Savior, for eternity. I’m homesick for heaven, where those saved by Jesus dwell, through His blood He redeemed them, and saves their souls from hell. I’m homesick for heaven, soon Jesus will take me there, cast on Him, your every care and join Him in heaven, where eternity, we will share. I’m homesick for heaven, I have a deep longing in my soul, to see the blessed face of Jesus, and be made perfectly whole.

Attitudes: Is your attitude a thankful one? Or do you grumble and complain? Is your attitude a serving one? Or when asked to serve,pass to another’s name? Is your attitude a loving one? Or do you put yourself first in life’s game? Is your attitude a prayerful one? Or do you seldom call upon God’s name? Is your attitude one of sharing? Or do you show, very little caring? These negative attitudes are not God’s plan, they are the attitudes of selfish man.
