Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing:for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Who Moved ?

We often question why God seems so distant, but guess what, God has not moved, rather it is we who have distanced ourselves from the warmth of His presence and replaced it with the coldness of the reality of the circumstances.

Have You Had An EKG Of Your Spiritual Heart Lately?

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 11.01.33 PM

I was spending time with God today contemplating my  heart surgery three years ago to ablate the electrical impulses which were backfiring and causing my heart to go out of sinus rhythm and draining me of energy.
As I was reading Psalm 27 God used my current situation as a parable to help me understand verse 2 on a deeper level.
Psalm 27:2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
“Dear Child,
Reins lead and guide you, they motivate your intentions, actions and words.
When I examine your heart I look deep into the motivation which is the energy of your spiritual heart.
Does it beat in sinus rhythm with My will or is it out of rhythm backfiring against My will draining you of spiritual power and energy.
When it beats in sinus rhythm with my heart you will rise up like an eagle and not be weary nor faint.” Thus saith Papa

CHALLENGE: When was the last time you ask the Lord to give your heart a spiritual EKG?

Harvest Thanksgiving UK Traditions

When we immigrated to the U.S.A. we brought many of our U.K. traditions with us. We obviously don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but we do have harvest thanksgiving services in our churches where we decorate the church with such things as fruits, vegetables, breads, wheat, grain, autumn flowers and plants to represent His abundant provisions.
The windowsills are lined with a variety of fruits,
We tie tall husks of wheat at the end of the pews,
The altar area is covered with many reminders of God’s provision.
The church doesn’t only look warm and inviting but I remember it smelling so good.
We would praise the Lord for His many provision with grateful harvest hymns
such as:
“ We plough the fields and scatter
The good seed on the land
But it is fed and watered by God’s almighty hand:
The seed time and the harvest
Our life, our health, our food.
Accept the gifts we offer for all thy love imparts,
And what thou most desirest,
Our humble, thankful hearts.”

After the service the food and displays are distributed to the needy and less fortunate.
While attending Hawthorne Gospel church in New Jersey in the 1970’s we offered to provide and decorate the first ever display they had in the church of God’s provision. We are told that forty years later this U.K.tradition is still alive and has become a tradition of Hawthorne Gospel Church. Perhaps an idea for your local church this coming Sunday as you prepare to celebrate not only Thanksgiving but also God’s faithful harvest.
