It will get you off of booze, valium, crack, Prozac...
get you up yonder on higher ground...
It will adjourn your silly little pity
party for good...
The Word of God washes all the earthy grubby trash away.
My thoughts are in this color and NOT inspired...
Maybe useful though... To
help you apply the Word.

one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son
from all sin.
Isaiah 62:4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken;
neither shall thy land
any more be termed Desolate:
but thou shalt be called Hephzibah,
and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee,
and thy land shall
Do you feel "forsaken"?

Claim it OUT LOUD... Right now!
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be
without covetousness; and be content
such things as ye have: for he hath said,
I will never leave thee,

not I, but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live in the flesh
I live by the faith

So, this life Christ gave you...
Will you just
live it as it comes...
And stop complaining about His arrangements?

that fear thee,
that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

calleth together his friends and neighbours,

sending Jesus to find you.
Psalm 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth,

shall the Sun
of righteousness arise
with healing in his wings;

You need healing RIGHT NOW...
But, are you satisfied
with healing that
makes you "grow up"?
Stop begging for deliverance

Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand:
be ye therefore sober, and

you want to see Him as soon as He
will let you.

by the works of the law,

will live by believing
in His promises to you.

loved not their lives unto the death.

and He gave you burdens with your blessings.
When will you thank Him for them?

have hazarded their lives
for the name of

a friendship by witnessing to an unsaved friend.

you to the shrink, you know.

do more tricks?
Ask Him to work on you soul for a while...
for Signs and Wonders.

21 Make you perfect in every good work to do

let's talk about "good works".

You work to do His will.

in this life with
So, who is in the yoke with you?
Jesus, or your shrink?

He planned it...
see you through to victory.
1 Timothy 4:10 For therefore we both labour
and suffer reproach,
because we trust in the living God,
who is the Saviour of all men,

You aren't much
if you aren't mocked.
Go see if you can catch some trouble

Not a Friend Like the Lowly Jesus."
And, don't you ever forget
I was about 15 years old in Mwanza, Tanzania,
I used to play Monopoly on the
back porch of the Manning home
with Mercy Manning. Inside, Augusta Manning
would be having
a Bible and craft club for Hindu women. These women are treated
about as bad as any women on earth by their husbands and culture.
remember one day hearing Augusta getting the ladies' attention,
and she sang,
"There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus..."
I peeked into the
living room out of curiosity, and every one
of those Hindu women was crying.
They had no friend on earth
whom they could trust, and Augusta had found
them a friend-- Jesus.
Is He YOUR friend too?
Yes? I'm glad to hear that...
So, tell me please, how long has it been since you introduced
Jesus, to some hurting soul?
sorry for yourself,
and be a blessing to someone... Today!
Proverbs 8:34 Blessed is
the man that heareth me,
watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts
of my doors.
Are you looking for Jesus?
you looking for another disappointment?
You will probably get just what you
are looking for.
40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit,
out of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock,
So, where are YOU going?

Since the Comforter has come;

Makes the trusting heart His home.

What assurance in my soul!
On the stormy sea,
He speaks peace to me,
How the billows cease to roll!

All around this heavenly Guest,
unbelief and sadness,
Changed our weariness to rest.
the rain that falls from heaven,
Like the sunlight from the sky,
Holy Ghost is given,
Coming on us from on high.

Blessed fruit of righteousness;
And the streams
of life are flowing
In the lonely wilderness.
a wonderful salvation,
Where we always see His face!
What perfect habitation,
What a quiet resting place!
