Darling Hill is a quiet place with a narrow, welcoming lane. The view from the top is breathtaking and its vistas change many times throughout a day. I hope that you can visit often and enjoy it as much as my dear Husband, family and I do. God has allowed Syd and I to sojourn here until He leads us on to another place of service or until He takes us Home to Heaven. The little cabin He has provided sits alongside Darling Hill Road, nestled in, on a northwest corner.
Multi-tasking this morning brought me to doing dishes and listening to a precious sermon at the same time, which I try to do often. This morning's message was a special blessing from II Corinthians 1:20.
"For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us."
Put the promises of God in your cart! As I go down the aisles of Scripture I can know that God gives me His promises. Two things that the speaker said though, were good reminders:
Read the label; is this promise addressed to you (or are you getting someone else's mail?) or (for instance) is it for the nation of Israel? or perhaps addressed to a specific individual?
(r.e. Haggai 2:23, to Zerubbabel)
Due to the fact that Syd cannot eat certain migraine-causing substances, I am a huge label reader! I also work at the Post office, so these questions stood out to me.
Is the promise conditional? and am I submitting to the condition? Psalm 37:4 It is easy to say, "He shall give thee the desires of thine heart", but am I truly delighting myself in the Lord?
At this time I'm experiencing some changes in my body which seem to affect me emotionally. Am I faithfully committing every area and instance, where irritating "rubs" come along, to my heavenly Father? I say to myself, 'If not, I am out of the will of God!'
His Word tells me I cannot just "grin and bear it", gritting my teeth all the way, but
"...unto all patience and longsuffering, with JOYFULNESS..." Colossians1:11
The most important thing to me right now is that I stay in the Word of God so that I can faithfully do my daily tasks.
Our heavenly Father is so good to us! He's given me an opportunity to take orders for "name rocks" (my own I have at my PO window) At 5:30 this morning I was delivering my rocks to the Post Office, as this particular "order" came from one of the girls who works there. Here are a few pictures, which don't show the intricate detail, but gives an idea of what they look like:
Her order was for 10 "sister's" rocks (all her sisters and sister-in-laws) and for all 6 of her grandchildren
these are a little blurry, sorry
All boxed and ready to go out the door
I was able to finish the last three up last night. It was a fun project.
I'm so thankful that you stopped by Darling Hill today. Come back and visit often!
