Trivia:

Our riddle yesterday was, What goes around the world but stays in the corner? You had some great guesses, but the correct answer is...... drum roll ..... A stamp!!!


On the lighter side ... "You know, there's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot." Ho, ho. ha, I'm afraid I am most of the times standing on the shore like an idiot.


Challenge:

Psalm 1:5 "Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgement, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteousness."


This verse points out two sides that we can stand in,

The ungodly - those who stand in rebellion and refuse God's saving grace, they are unable to stand in the forgiveness of a loving gracious Father, though they are living in easy distance.


While sinners - are those who have received the grace of God, but are continuously standing

askance of those believers who are standing confidentially in the communion of the faithful who are

bound in the fellowship of caring believers.


Oh it is so sad when a believer receives the forgiveness of sin but refuses the sweet, warm fellowship of that company of the people of God. Their life is one of worry, uncertainty, loneliness, struggle, lack of meaning. How sad is the daily loss that those who are saved but are walking outside the joys of those who are within the fold of our loving Savior. Somehow they feel either that they don't measure up, or are still striving to be one of those who are worthy of being in the presence of the loved.


SO GO WITH GOD my dear one for should you receive the forgiveness of the Father, then you indeed measure up, and you are covered by His grace, you need not count yourself worthy, for you truly are His child, one of His family and your need is not to be good enough but rather to allow yourself to be, covered by His blanket of forgiveness. He calls you His own my dear one, so just walk in that light, the glory of the child of God. Revel in it, joy in your place in the family, its not a matter of being worthy, but rather walking in his light, and His love for you, my dear one.


Oh we thank you Father for your love, forgiveness, and for your desire to flourish our lives with your love coming from your children. We give you thanks for all of these blessings that you yearn to fill our lives with. We many times fail to enjoy, or even experience the full extent of your care for us. How loved we are, How precious is your love for us. Thank you Dear Father.
