MAJESTY! [A Happy Thought Post]

Right outside my door sits this beautiful flower pot overflowing with purple petunias. Just a simple reminder that I’m surrounded by blessings!

Today I was looking at it and thinking how awesome the color purple is! “Majesty” is the word that comes to mind when I see purple. Purple is royal, stately, it bears a quality of grandeur. It makes me think of Jesus – the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

I think if the flowers could sing, they’d be singing praises to King Jesus, our beloved Lord and Savior—

“Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.” 1 Chronicles 29:11

Taste and See!

“Taste and see that the Lord is good.” ~Psalm 34:8 

Life doesn’t always feel good, yet the Psalmist writes, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.”

Jesus never promised us a “feel good” life. Rather, He promised us HIS LIFE. And He is good, no matter how circumstances appear. While speaking to His disciples about the troubles that were ahead, He says, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Nothing Extraordinary

Nothing extra ordinary…

When I started my little mountain trek today, I was looking for extra ordinary flowers and nature scenes to photograph. The flowers weren’t much in bloom however, and I didn’t find anything that took my breath away. After walking awhile, my nephew bent down to take a close up photograph of a tiny yellow plant which I assumed was a weed. It was so small that I didn’t see it’s beauty at first.

God is My Rock

When you’re feeling down, depressed, anxious or afraid, remember that you can turn to God in prayer. He is our rock, our savior, our shield, and place of safety! May you find strength in Him today!

“The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.” ~ Psalm 18:2

Wishing you a joyful Easter!

Happy Easter to all my friends at Pawz and Pray

Hallelujah He is Risen!

Today, I am reminded once again that because of Christ, my eternity is secure in heaven. Not because of anything good I’ve done, but because of everything Christ did for me at the cross . . .

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live. – John 11:25
