A Time for Rest....

Sunday, September 04, 2011

Today I'm having a quiet and restful day, after the past 2 weeks with my busy days with having my grandkids here I'm taking a break and allowing my body to heal and rest. I'm feeling it today and feel I must pull back and get ready for the Fall Season, my life is going to be busy with going back to my regular schedule at church with teaching my ladies Bible Study on Tuesdays, and then I have my regular monthly newsletters to prepare for, weekly prayer focuses for our church bulletin and I've been asked to bring the message this month at our Seniors Luncheon, so this gal surely has her plate full. I would appreciate your prayers, thanks for your support and for your friendship, I am blessed to have such great friend's. Let's keep on sparking together and cheering each other on as we meet our goals.

I'll leave you with an encouraging verse from Hebrews about Rest...

Hebrews 4:9 NKJV

There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.

    You certainly are a busy lady and I am pleased to hear you are taking a day for you....

I do that at least once a week....thats what keeps me on top of things...well most of the time anyway.....

Church I think is the place where we can get the busyest.....I know since we started pastoring our little church I could be twice as busy as I am however I so know how to put boundaries in place and those who don't want the boundary to be there are finding they can't jump over it or knock it down anymore....lol....
That to me is how leadership should be and it is how we sustain ourselves.....

Prayers coming your way....
Enjoy your rest day...

Grandkids are a Blessing

Saturday, September 03, 2011

Last week I had my grandkids here from Tuesday till Saturday and this week I had them from supper time yesterday to this afternoon, wow, they are sure cute, a bundle of energy though, they keep me on my toes but I love every moment of it...Today as I was packing up their stuff I suddenly realized that I hadn't seen my "sunshine", my kitty...I looked in the bedroom and he was snuggled up on Nyla's bed with his head on her pillow and her elephant she sleeps with, I managed to snap a shot of him beside Ellie but not with his head resting on the stuffed animal, it sure was cute...The kids thought it was funny, you never know what kids and animals will do but you can always count on them bringing you some joy...Yes siree...

When The Unexpected Comes (Poem)

Friday, September 02, 2011

Good Morning Everyone, hope you enjoy the poem below...Have a great Labor Day weekend, be safe and be blessed with your family and friend's...Hugs..



Through the unexpected things
That happens in our lives
We draw from God the strength we need
To carry on with Christ

For He will always hold us up
Whenever it gets too tough
And carry us through the hardest times
When we can’t feel His love

I know that at these times we feel
Abandoned by our Lord
We wonder what is going on
We can’t feel His presence at all

But He has not abandoned us
Nor forsaken us in our need
He allows the unexpected things
Be life lessons we should heed

So we will grow with deeper faith
And be strengthened in the Lord
Then when we face the storms of life
We’ll be stronger than before

So when the unexpected comes
Remember God’s in control
And nothing in life is ever wasted
But are memories that we hold

So when others come across our path
That are facing what we’ve faced
We’re more than able to share God’s love
And touch them with His grace.

© By M.S.Lowndes

Personal Revival: A.B. Simpson, Vision for a city wide revival in Louisville.

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Yesterday we discussed about how Prayer lays the ground work for answers to prayer and for personal revival in our lives and of those who are seeking the Face of God in prayer.

Today we will look at what happens when the Spirit of God stirs the hearts of His people. In these times of prayer the spirit of God speaks to the individual heart and as people respond to the moving of the Spirit, we see God move in great and mighty ways. It is times like these that lives are transformed and communities are forever impacted as the Word of God is preached and lives are drawn towards the Lord.

Today we will look at the life of A.B. Simpson. A man of God who touched lives on both sides of the Canadian and United States of America Border's, his life began in Prince Edward Island on December 15, 1843. His parents were devout Presbyterians and of Scottish descent. In 1858 he was converted and surrendered his life to Jesus. Later he felt the call of God to enter the ministry and he enrolled in Knox College in Toronto, Ontario.

A.B. Simpson graduated from Knox in 1865 and was ordained and became Pastor to the congregation of Knox Church in Hamilton, Ontario. He served as Pastor until 1873. It was there that he grew in his walk with the Lord. He was used of God and touched many lives in Hamilton. It was there that he was given a burden for lost souls. He had a deep compassion for the lost. He surrendered himself completely to the Lord. He died daily to self with committing himself to the work of God.

He had a deep desire to evangelize, he was consumed with it. He wrote a hymn called A Missionary’s Cry:

A hundred thousand souls a day,
Are passing one by one away, in
Christ less guilt and gloom.
Without one ray of hope or light,
With future dark as endless night,
They’re passing to their doom,
They’re passing to their doom.

After Hamilton he ministered in Louisville and in New York City. God gave Simpson a vision for a city wide revival in Louisville. As he waited on God in prayer revival broke out in the city. Simpson was used of God and hundreds of people were converted, many were received in to the churches. Lives were delivered, healed and gloriously saved by the Power of God. Simpson lived a consecrated life devoted to reaching souls for Christ. He remained devoted to serving Jesus and was known as a man of Vision and of Faith.

FROM the DESK of JUDITH SCOTT

A.B. Simpson was a man full of Vision and of Faith. As he yielded his life and surrendered to the Lord he was given a heart that was full of compassion to win souls for Christ.

He spent many hours in prayer, quieting his spirit before God. He sought to please God and he sought to listen to the Still Small Voice of God. He sought to “Be Still and Know God”.

He wrote a poem entitled: All for Jesus

How can my heart the world refuse,
Content my earthly all to lose,
That I the better part may choose?

I do it all for Jesus.
How can I meekly suffer wrong,
With patience sweet, and courage strong,
Repeating still my happy song?
I do it all for Jesus

How can I seek and save the lost,
The souls forlorn and tempest-tossed,
Regarding not the hardest cost?
I do it all for Jesus.

We can follow after Simpson’s footsteps and be men and women of Faith and have a Vision for the Lost. As we wait on God, seek the Lord in Prayer and seek to surrender all to Jesus we too can hear the Still Small Voice of God and be Men and Women after God’s Own Heart. God is looking for Men and Women who will seek to serve and worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. We too can make a difference in our own communities, in our work places, and in our neighborhoods, touching lives and impacting souls for the Kingdom of God. Canada is ripe and ready for harvest. Let us make a difference in the community in which we live. Let us pray that Canada will be restored and be drawn back to its First Love.

God desires to see His Land proudly living for Him. We can learn from Simpson and be men and women who inspire others to live a live that is committed to serving Jesus and one that is committed to serving others. As we seek to hear from God and fulfill our calling there is no telling what God may do with a life that is totally surrendered.

A life that is fully surrendered to Jesus can be a life that will do great exploits for God. Indeed Revival begins in the hearts of the people. As our hearts are changed, it then spreads out to others, and beyond, impacting lives to the Glory of God.
