I consider old age a humorous daily challenge and just accept things they way they are rather than be frustrated by them. It makes life interesting and a lot less stressful. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

And Never Apart From
We persevere through faith and never apart from it. Sinclair Ferguson
Can Only Occur If
Reconciliation can only occur if there is a two sided coin used. One sincerely repents, the other completely forgives. Joseph- Anthony: Green
God delights To
“God prescribes individually for each of His patients. God delights to restore each depressed soul to a sphere of increased usefulness,” J. Oswald Sanders
Flee From Those That
[We must] pray constantly for His enabling grace to say no to temptation, of choosing to take all practical steps to avoid known areas of temptation and flee from those that surprise us.
Make Us Either

It Empties Today of Its Strength.
Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength—carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.

And He Must
True forgiveness breaks a man, and he must forgive. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Sponges are Like Christian Testimony
There are 5 sponges laying on your kitchen counter top. Each member of your family has been cleaning up different areas of your home, but all the sponges look the same. You are curious as to what was cleaned in your home, but you can’t tell by looking…they all look the same…so what do you do?
You squeeze each sponge to see what comes out.
As you squeeze the first sponge, you see that cola comes out, and so you decide that someone cleaned the kitchen with that one. Upon squeezing the second sponge, you find tub and tile cleaner – that one was used to clean the bathroom. Next, in the third sponge, you find motor oil – hubby was cleaning the garage! In the fourth sponge, baby powder puffs out when it is squeezed – yep, the baby’s nursery was done with that one! And finally, in the last one, is floor wax – that was the one you used on the hall floor!
As you lay the last one down, you look again at their similarity – and they all look the same until they’re squeezed.
Christians are the same way.
As life squeezes us, different things come out; anger from one, a need for revenge from another, tears from one, remorse from yet another – also greed, untruth, lust – and finally, from one saint, pours forth the love of Christ.
Just like the sponge, we can only squeeze out what is put in – stay in the Word daily, and be in continuous prayer, so that when life puts the squeeze on you (and it WILL), Jesus, and Jesus ALONE will shine forth from you!
Have a blessed, squeaky clean day!
