From My Heart Posts


HOW WONDERFUL TO BE A CHILD OF THE KING! My sister, Mary Ann, came down from her beautiful home in Georgia to visit for a few days and we had a fun time talking about the “good ole days” back when we were kids. We decided to “visit” the old neighborhood, the place we were raised, and so we did. The house is no longer there and the few houses that are still there don’t look the same. We could have looked at our old home place, the place where the house once stood and had feelings of sadness but we didn’t, we chose to think about all the happy times we had there when Mama, Daddy and all the kids were there. We reminisced, laughed awhile, circled the block several times, saw the “fallen tree” the place where we all went to play and then we left the old neighborhood REJOICING!! My how far the Lord has brought us! He replaced the old house with a home in Heaven for our Mama, our Daddy, and two of our brothers who have gone on before us. We have been blessed more than words can say! God is so very good to His children and I thank Him. It’s nice to look back just to see where God has brought us from and where we might have been. We have been blessed! Same is true as Christians in our walk with the Lord. When we are tempted to grow weary in well doing, when the world tugs at us and Satan tries to convince us that “everything is beautiful in this old world,” when we are tempted to look back and ask “what if” and “why this” just remember where God has brought us from and where we might have been. My sister, Mary Ann and I went to the old neighborhood, we looked, we saw and we left thanking God for all His blessings… “The Cross before us, the world behind us, No turning back, no turning back.”

We are right in the middle of Flu season and what a terrible illness to have. Seems like folks never get over it and have severe complications from this dreaded sickness. I would like to share with you the following article that was printed 60 years ago in the Baptist Bible Tribune. And is just as up to date and true today as it was back then… Flu and the Sundayitis “We have noticed that in some cases this flu has been lapsing into the dreaded disease called Sundayitis. Sundayitis is a disease that affects mainly the spiritually undernourished Christian. It’s symptoms are much the same in each case. The first attack almost always comes on Sunday mornings when a person thinks about getting up and going to Bible School, at this time. Sundayitis strikes it’s dreaded blow, and the thought comes, “I’ve worked so hard all week and besides that I’ve had a touch of the flu and beside that Sunday is the only day that I can rest and I need the rest.” At this point the said afflicted person usually makes one healthy turn in bed and back to sleep they go, while at the Church a faithful few struggle to keep the Church doors open, make it grow a little, pay the bills, so the Church will still be there for the afflicted persons to enjoy after they recover (if they do) from Sundayitis. About nine or ten o’clock when it’s too late to get ready for Bible School or Church, Sundayitis usually recedes and the afflicted person eats a hearty breakfast, goes to Aunt Susie’s for dinner, a drive in the country in the afternoon, or some other sport. Then about seven in the evening just before Church, another attack will most surely come to the afflicted person, the only known self-prescribed remedy is a quiet evening at home or at the neighbors. After Church the patient can enjoy a restful night and will not suffer any more attacks until the following Sunday.” (copied) We might get the Flu, but Sundayitis is one complication we will not have if our hearts are right with God. “I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord.” (Psa. 122:1). To be in God’s House with those that love Him and to sing praises to Him and hear His Word being preached should bring joy, sweet peace, and happiness to us if we are truly His Children. See You Sunday!

Another year has come and gone and we have been blessed! So many prayers answered, and all our needs met, good health, strength and so many blessings we can’t name them all. What a good God we serve! When He saved us He promised to keep us, and He has. Now a brand New Year is here and He is standing ready to see us through it. He will protect His children no matter what the future brings…

“Jesus is near, to comfort and cheer,
Just when I need Him most.”

Rest in the Lord and don’t spend all your days worrying about the “what if’s.” If this New Year brings sickness, loneliness or even death, just remember that you are His child and He is with you through it all, the good times and the bad.
The important thing is to make sure you belong to Him. Make sure you have accepted Him as your own personal Saviour. Open the door of your heart and ask Him to come in and He will. What a joy to know that He is yours and you are His forever and forever. As a child of God you will have a Heavenly Father to watch over you, to care for you, and to be with you in every situation, the good times and the bad. Don’t go through another year without the Lord. Accept Him today and rest in Him. I don’t know what the New Year will bring but I do know my Heavenly Father will be right there with me, without a doubt.
Have a New Year filled with His Blessings!

Are you upset, frustrated, and just plain ole disgusted with the way things are going in your life? So are most folks around us. Things are not working the way we think they should so our nerves are a mess and we are all upset. We worry, worry, and worry some more. We are not happy campers right now to say the least, but don’t give up. Remember Moses was once a “basket case!” Well, DON’T worry because I have good news for you! YES I DO! God is still on His Throne, He is still in control and I have confidence that everything is gonna be alright! The Bible tells me so. I have read His promises and have been assured that His children are right in the palm of His hand, safe and secure. He has us under His wings and I don’t know of a better place to be. He has promised to be with us always and he will never leave us nor forsake us and that’s good enough for me. Get busy telling others about His saving Grace. Let’s talk more about Him and His Goodness and Mercy toward us and less about the things in our lives that get us all upset and nervous.

 “Have Faith in God, He’s on His Throne,
   Have Faith in God, He watcheth o’er His own,
   He cannot fail, He must prevail,
   Have Faith in God, have Faith in God.”

Now, get that worry wrinkle off your brow, turn that frown upside down, and have a “MERRY CHRISTMAS!!”

I have a hard time understanding where the convictions went and why. Only one explanation–we have back-slid. Shouldn’t we as Christians be growing stronger in our walk with God instead of becoming weak and not caring? If we had convictions “BACK WHEN” then our convictions should be even stronger now after we have walked with Him and listened to His Word, and have experienced His blessings, His healing and absolute goodness to us. Where did our convictions go? Why are some things OK now that were not OK “BACK WHEN?” Seems as though anything and everything goes these days and no one has a problem with it. I guess we just don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings these days, but “BACK WHEN” we didn’t have a problem with speaking and living our convictions. Of course our convictions have to come from the Word  and just plain ole common sense! I believe we need to be reminded that the Church building is the House Of God, the place where we meet to worship Him and to  fellowship with our sisters and brothers in Christ. We need to respect His House and dress in a manner that is pleasing to Him. Where have our convictions gone? Not only God, but people, lost and saved are watching the Church and what do they see? Can they see any difference in the ones coming out of the Church than they do the ones coming out of the bar? “BACK WHEN” we would know a Christian by the way they were dressed, now it’s hard to know by looking at them so we have to ask and if they say “yes” we then wonder where their clothes are. I’m just saying, “BACK WHEN” we had some convictions and was bold enough to let our convictions be known. Let’s repent of our slackness, remember our convictions and get back to the “BACK WHEN” days.
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Heb. 13:8).
