Hand of Kindness

The Lord’s hand of kindness
Removes the blindness
Sin is then exposed
The question is posed
What will you do
It is posed to you
Repent and be glad
Or ignore and be sad
The choice is ours to make
Turn to the Lord or forsake

Selfless Love *Ex. 33:7-23

Exodus 33:7-23
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+33%3A7-23&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
This is a wonderful ending to a chapter that started out so sad. Because of the extreme sinful behavior of God’s people, God didn’t even want to see them or be with them. The people mourned and repented when they heard God’s words about them.
Moses again intercedes on behalf of the people. God answers Moses with a yes; His Presence will go with the people throughout the rest of their journey.
Moses, realizing the magnitude of his responsibility of being a leader of a multitude of people, asked God to teach him God’s ways, that His favor would be with them, and to remember the people are God’s chosen. God was pleased with Moses selfless response and agreed to go with them throughout their journey.

We, too, can intercede on behalf of others. God is please when we do so. We can make a huge difference in people’s lives when we look outside ourselves and ask God’s blessings over them.
We are all on a journey, which eventually comes to an end here on earth. How we go through this journey is what really matters. God’s example of selfless love by giving us Jesus Christ His one and only Son is powerful and benefits all who take hold of it. Jesus, Himself, also is an example of selfless love. He gave up everything to become human only to give up His life for the salvation of all mankind. Wow!!! What selfless love – nothing can match that or even come close.

First Day

On this first day of May
It would be wise to say
Thank you Lord for this day
Guide me along Your path today
Help me to walk in Your way
Keep my thoughts from going astray
And keep worry and fear far away
Protect and place the enemy at bay
May Your presence with me stay
Be with me at work and play
My burdens at Your feet I lay
Your glory in my life display
Knowing You’re the Potter, I’m clay
Trusting everything will be okay
All this to You, Lord I pray
