DEVOTIONAL : Good To Be That One In Ten 


PSALM 100:4 
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His Name.

It seems as though by now I would know better than to so heavily rely on weather reports when I have things to do or places to go.   

As I was getting ready to leave and do something with a friend, I HEARD there were storms (not in our direct area, but close enough to broadcast locally). Instead of looking around and seeing the skies were not threatening, I saw overcast and gray clouds. Perhaps the weather (miles and miles away) MIGHT impact us! 

Before I left, I said a prayer, reminding The Lord how upsetting it was those times I traveled in storms and would He please give me His protection.  As I prayed, I was convicted of the times the  Lord did shield me and how. I reached home only to grab my cell phone or jump on social media. 

I have written about this before, mostly because it really bothers me when I realize just how ungrateful I can be or how quickly I forget to give praise to God for His protection and provision.

Don’t you know how much whining, grumbling and complaining Moses heard!  Time and again, God provided for the people and yet they continually doubted Him.

Who is to say we don’t live in a time of miracles.  Every time we wake up, we see, hear, touch, smell, taste, reason and understand, we are  blessed by God’s  Almighty Power and we as His creation have the honor to give praise  to the Lord for all He has done, is doing and will continue to do through out our lives!  Let’s not waste any opportunities to worship and give praise to our God and King!

PRAYER
 Father, Merciful Lord and Savior
We give You thanks for each and every
Blessing in our lives

For the victories  
We return to You
For the difficult times
We praise You for the lessons
You impart

Thank You that in and through Christ
We can hope

Thank You for Your  love
For Your grace and mercy
Wisdom, discernment and conviction
Teach us, please, how to engage those gifts in our lives

Praise You for our talents
Let us accept what You have given us with humility
And use it to bring honor and recognition to our Father
Please don’t let us hide, deny or neglect to use what You  Have given us, but use it as an opportunity to show Your  Greatness and Power
Let our skills humbly display how precious and Generous You equip us to serve You as we were created To do!
Please let us live out the meaning and will You have for each of our lives
Let us live to please You!
Longing to hear “Well done” when our race on earth is finished
Then we will know we did what You intended with what we were given.

Father, we read in
 Luke 17:11-19 And it came to pass, as He went to Jerusalem, that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as He entered into a certain village, there met Him tenmen that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.And when He saw them, He said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.

Please, Father, let us be the ONE who will turn back every time to give You glory!

In the Name of Your Son, Jesus
AMEN

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
