Good Evening my dears..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth on this Sabbath ..
So glad you dropped by..
Just sharing a little thought from my heart today...
As you know this is a Christian home making blog..
I endeavour to use up this wee space on the internet to display the joy that Christ can bring into a home..
There is no place on earth that is as precious to us as our homes..
This is where we live..
Where we nurture our children and love our husbands..
Where we build memories that last in the hearts of our loved ones as long as they live..
When trials come then it is home where we find comfort..
Even Ikea has a slogan:
Home is the most important place in the world...
And it is...
Not that our home here finds Terry and I jumping up and down with joyful glee every day but just a steady even pace of life with the joy of the Lord blessing each day..
We go through storms of life just like everyone else but the blessing we have is of knowing and serving a God who is close enough for us to lean on ..
No matter what storm threatens us we can rest knowing that He does all things well and He will be right with us in the midst of whatever storm we go through..
He is standing right next to us..
He knows us on a personal level..
He knows where we live and He knows our hearts..
2 Chronicles 16:9
The Lord's eyes scan the whole world to those whose hearts are committed to Him and to strengthen them..
When we call on his Name he is faithful and true..
The Lord is good.
His mercy endures forever.
His faithfulness endures through every generation...
When we accept Christ as our Saviour through faith we have the peace of God because Jesus Christ made a Way for us..
Our days are blessed with peace because He lives...
Now that we have God's approval through faith, we have peace with God because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done,.
There are days that are joyful..
Days with family or friends or just each other doing whatever it is t that we love to do..
There are also days when we annoy each other to no end or we receive sad news..
Just living life like the rest of the world..
Thanks be to the Lord,
who daily carries our burden for us.
God is our salvation..
As we all know the world is changing so quickly..
The importance of God in our lives has almost completely diminished in so many homes..
Teaching our children that there is a God and that He loves them has changed it's focus and parents look to the god of this world..
Money and what it can bring..
It is scary to this old grandma..
I see so many sweet children who don't even know that Jesus Christ died for them and made a Way that they can have eternal life..
Life on this earth is so short but focus is on what can be accomplished and accumulated in this life and no mention of eternity and what they need to do to prepare to meet God...
If you don't know the Lord but realize in your heart that there must be more then this life can offer then please turn to Him today..
He will make a difference in your life and your home..
Putting Him first in your daily life leads to a life of joy and peace..
And a life eternal with our Creator God..
We try to give our children all the best that life can offer but do we try to show them a way to have eternal life when it is all said and done..
This is a choice we make...
Either to serve Him and teach our children that there is something worth living for or to live this life like there is not anything after it is all over..
Whether we believe it or not does not change the fact that there is a righteous God who made a Way for us to follow so that we could live with him through eternity..
At the end of the journey is God..
A dear precious God who loves us and gives us a life worth living and a hope for a life when this one is all over..
He came to earth as our Saviour and gave us a plan to follow so that we could be saved and have a home with HIM...
There are many people today who do not believe that there is a God or a life after we die.. They think it is a waste of time serving the unseen God..
He is real..
If you have ever physically felt the presence of the Lord then you know He is real.
And you will will never forget that touch in your heart no matter how far you wander from Him..
His love is long reaching and brings such a feeling of joy..
It is unexplainable but undeniable...
His mercy is unlimited and his grace is sufficient ..
He is so worth while..
God bless your sweet hearts this day..
