A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Do it Before or During not After.


“It’s hard for God to walk with a man who gets his mind made up to do things his own way.” Norvel Hayes

We will say you know there is going to be an argument when you get to work or school.

Instead of making up your mind on what you are going to say and do and ask God to back you why not ask God to direct your words and actions. After all, you only see a small part of the picture while He sees the complete picture.
You may think doing it your way is going to make you look real good and the opponent real bad. That is the quickest way for foot in mouth disease, you know, where you put your foot in your big mouth.

Doing it Gods way may be a great way to witness and bring someone to Christ. It may not be your opponent, it may be someone watching.


“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10-11 New International Version

Let this be your first and most important decision you make in every event in your life to quote that verse. Especially the part of your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Say it like you mean it because Jesus will take you up on your offer.

Beware, it is better not to make a vow than to make one and refuse to observe it. In other words do not say it unless you mean it because if you say it and then refuse to obey Jesus’ will it will be a curse unto you.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Nissi (God who goes out before us) please always remind me to call upon and obey You before entering into any and all unknown situations so as to give glory not shame to Your name. I humbly request this in the name of He who possess infinite wisdom Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
