I Use Both

  “I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I use both as a light unto my closest friend. His name is Jesus.

I use both the good times and the bad ones as a light unto Christ.

The hard times shine the light of how He held my hand through the darkest clouds of sorrow and the difficultest of times. How He gently heals me of both big and small wounds. How He is strong yet gentle. How His love and strength was what got me through them. We are not to whine about them but rather to rejoice in them for it shows His providential care.

I use the good times to show His marvelous generosity to those He loves. How even the littlest of blessing shows His magnitude of love for me. Folks need to hear both. It makes Him real to them and some eager to join His Holy family.

“We are too prone to engrave our trials in marble and write our blessings in sand.” C.H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me with ample opportunities to give testimony of Your amazing blessings and how the best ones were how You walked through my many trials and tribulations with me . Allow me to speak of the wonderful loving blessings You have generously given me in my life time. I ask this in the name of the most beautiful blessing You have shared with me Jesus Christ. Amen.

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

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.

  1. One of my favorite verses, since I heard a Sermon last August. An 80-year plus Preacher during a revival gave these words new meaning to me! Part 2 of my post on that Summer Sermon will be published this weekend ironically. “Sermon Says: Alway, Always, and Forever” is the name of first post. Note: Always is situational, whereas Alway (without S) is as you note perpetual. Different versions of this verse use word with and without an S. As Rev. Ballard reminded us, God is WITH us – not simply beside us. As you touch on, as I heard in a Sermon last Sunday, we need to maintain our joy ‘in the midst of trouble’ – not just in good, troubleness times.
