TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA

Dear friend,

The first few taxis I waved down yesterday refused to stop for me when they saw my paralyzed streets ministry doggies & their wheelchairs as I needed to take Mr. Simeon to the vet for an emergency visit. Then Jesus sent a cab driver who believes in Him. We spent the whole ride talking about the Lord and the Bible!

The cab driver emphatically reminded me Christ’s followers are to be JOYFUL. Our joy may not be in our circumstances particularly when they are challenging as mine often are. Our JOY is in JESUS and knowing those of us who believe in and follow Him as Lord will be with Him FOREVER!

Regardless of the trials and tribulations you may be facing right now, I encourage you as I need to do to set your gaze upon the Lord Jesus Christ and the Bible and REJOICE that He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings FOREVERMORE!

“Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!” Psalm 105:3

“…Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”” Nehemiah 8:10

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” James 1:2-4

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” Philippians 4:4

love & blessings,

lara

TODAY’S DAILY INSPIRATION

““The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” Mt. 6:22-23
“Get your eyes off ____ ,” the Spirit of Christ who lives inside His followers admonished me one day.

Honestly, I can’t even remember what I was looking at. Only that the Lord made clear I needed to turn my focus away.

He also said this. “Use your eyes to glorify me.”

Friend, we are to focus on the Lord Jesus Christ, on the Bible, and on whatever brings Him love, joy, pleasure, honor, praise, worship, and glory.

If we find ourselves looking at something ungodly, or looking at something good in an ungodly way, we need to change our focus.

Let us look upward to Jesus and then outward to whatever or whomever He desires. With the ultimate goal of glorifying Him!

TODAY’S 365 BLESSINGS

365 BLESSINGS is a devotional book I recently wrote that will soon be available in print by the grace of the Lord for the glory of the Lord! 

Blessing #183

“You in Your mercy have led forth
The people whom You have redeemed;
You have guided them in Your strength
To Your holy habitation.” Exodus 15:13

Two words and concepts stand out to me in this verse even though every word in God’s Word is so very important and precious. Lead. Guide. How lost we are in this world without the Lord! But Jesus the Great Shepherd, the Good Shepherd, the blessed Shepherd, He leads and guides His followers! His sheep! His children! Believers in Him! Those devoted to Him! Those whose lives belong to Him! We who follow Jesus are His sheep and are so infinitely blessed to be led day by day – and forever – by the Spirit of Christ, AMEN!

TODAY’S THE CROSS DEVOTIONAL

THE ULTIMATE GPS

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.” Psalm 37:23

I can’t imagine life without a GPS or similar technology to help me with getting places especially given my poor sense of direction. I’m probably not alone in this. Having electronic help at our fingertips 24-7 to get where we’re going is a blessing beyond measure for those of us who use computers, phones, or car GPS systems to direct us, isn’t it?

If the truth be told, some of us are more dependent on seeking our GPS and similar systems to go places physically than we are dependent on the Lord God almighty to direct us where He wants us to go – if we even look to Him at all!

The Lord and the Bible should be our road map for living, and we should spend time alone with Jesus  and the Bible regularly for numerous reasons including to seek Him in prayer for His will and for His directions to go wherever He desires to lead us.

Let us depend fully on Jesus, friend. And let us look to Him daily for directions.

TODAY’S SERVING JESUS IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE

““You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created.”” Rev. 4:11 NKJV

” Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Revelation 4:11 KJV

See the difference in the KJV version in the verse above? It says “for thy pleasure”. Is there a message in this for you?

This world and we that are in it were created by the Lord to bring Him pleasure. And we were created to love, worship, glorify, experience, enjoy, and be in His fellowship forever which begins with turning from our sins and believing in and receiving Christ as Lord who died on the cross to pay our sin penalty and was raised from the dead.

I usually think of serving the Lord as it relates to loving and serving others and telling them about Jesus. But serving the Lord in our everyday lives most of all includes loving Him with all our hearts and bringing Him joy, pleasure, and glory.

Are we? In all that we do? If not, we need to make a change! For the glory of Christ, YES!

Are you living to glorify the Lord day in and day out? Oh, may it be so for us all!
