They Begin to Grow.  

You, therefore, will be perfect growing into spiritual maturity both in mind and character, actively integrating godly values into your daily life. Matthew 5:48 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Growing into spiritual maturity and character and integrating godly values into our lives is an act of worship towards our Heavenly Beloved.

We submit unto His molding us into the children He desires us to be because we trust Him and love Him, which is an act of worship. Because we love Him we desire to be the children He wishes us to be which is another act of worship.

If there is no worship there is no desire to grow or to continue to grow.

There are times when growth is easy but it is in the times when growth is difficult that we show our trust and submissiveness unto Him that that is an act of worship which please Christ.

“It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow.”  Calvin Coolidge                       

 Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory ) for growing into the child You desire me to be through my worshiping You the greatest super star of all. I exalt Thee in the name of my best friend whom I adore Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Growing Older Brings Us Closer to God.

It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy Romans 9:16 New International Version                                                

Most times when we are younger we are cocky and depend upon ourselves more than we depend upon Jehovah.

As the years pass and we reflect how much our Beloved was walking with us through our trials and tribulations we respect and love Him more.

As we age we come to the realization that we will not be one this earth much longer and we have more aches and pains. We depend more upon our Cherished one and long to be with Him.

As a consequence growing older brings us closer to God.

Reflecting back I see a slow progression from self dependence to God dependence in my life. As well I see a deeper love, respect and admiration for my Beloved. I have grown closer to Him than I have with anybody or anything else. The consequence is a lot more peace, security and serenity in my life.

When the time comes for us to depart this world and we are laying in bed wondering if Jesus is real, if Heaven is real and if we are going to a Heavenly home the Holy Spirit comes to comfort and encourage us.

My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. Psalm 62:7 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for Your magnificent awesome infinite grace You have so richly showered upon me. Thank you for the comfort and encouragement of the Heavenly home You have so lovingly prepared for me to experience an eternity of love, joy, peace and good health with the one I so deeply love and long to live with. I exalt You in the name of my Heavenly king who is patiently waiting to greet me home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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