Fill Us

Love is patient when someone is annoyingly wrong
Love is kind when frustration runs high
Love is forbearing when your buttons are pushed
~~~
Lord Jesus,
We need to be more like You
In all we say, think, and do
Fill us with Your love
Let us rise above
Everything annoyingly wrong
Let love be our song
May we always find
Like You we are kind
No matter what we are hearing
Help us to be forbearing
All glory, honor to You
Thank You for what You do
~~~

Trust is a Must *Num. 11:1-3

Numbers 11:1-3
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=num.+11%3A1-3&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
This passage of Scripture is rarely talked about. I can’t ever remember hearing a sermon about this. Three times the Hebrews grumbled in the desert about food and water. But this is different. The Lord just finished giving exact instructions on the what, how, and who; what to do, how to do it, and who would do it. Each person, each tribe had a responsibility, and they all had to work together for the good of the whole community. They were headed to the Promised Land; filled with milk and honey. A rich, wondrous land God was leading them too, but they were consumed with the here and now. Not looking ahead at God’s promises and not remembering how God miraculously provided for their every need. They just broke camp and were only three days into their journey when they began to grumble and complain again. How displeasing this is to the Lord.
~~~
After all the blessings that the Lord had poured out upon His people, the people complained again. This time it was about the hardship of moving. The Lord heard and was angry with this unappreciative lot and sent a fire “consuming the outskirts of the camp.”

A little yeast affects the whole dough.

We are to have grateful, thankful hearts and acknowledge God’s faithfulness. If He calls us to do something then there is a very good reason for it. We might not see the benefits of it right away, but if we follow and trust Him, we will be blessed beyond measure.

God is good and greatly should be praised.

Anger

Anger get out!
I will not have you about!
You are not allowed here
Don’t even come near
I don’t need to shout.
In Jesus Name get out.
I am fully aware
I am in God’s care
I will live in peace
Anger, you have to cease
Your power will decrease
You cannot increase
You cannot stay
Leave now and go away
God’s peace will reside
In Him I abide

So Much

We have so much
To see or touch
There is so much more
To be thankful for
From the food we eat
To a flower that’s sweet
Plenty of everything
To birds that sing
A place to live
There’s so much to give
All kinds of trees
To animals and bees
From a job and car
To each and every star
For family and friend
The list could never end
Love and care from God
Give Him glory, honor, laud
Everything comes from Him
The bright and the dim
So give Him all the praise
Today and forever; always

Relationship *Num. 5:5-7

Numbers 5:5-7

Did you know that how you treat others affects your relationship to the Lord? This is a powerful verse. When we wrong someone (anyone) we put our relationship with God in jeopardy. Scripture says when we do this we are unfaithful to the Lord, we are to confess to the Lord our sin (wrong), and make restitution: not only pay back, but also add an extra 1/5 to it.
