thy words be true: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

2 Samuel 7
“28 And now, O Lord God, thou art that God, and thy words be true, and thou hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:”

At this time the Ark of God was still residing in a tent.  David had wanted to build the Lord a house.

image

The Lord would not allow it, but He promised to build David an everlasting house. (family). 

Jesus was born from the family line of David.

In Davids prayer of praise and thanksgiving we find verse 28.  David acknowledges who and what God will do.

“You are God, Your words are true, You have promised me good things….because I am Your Servant.”

Gods words are true, He is God, He has given us many wonderful promises. 

How many do we realize?   Not as many as He promised. 

Why?

David was a true servant of the Lord.  A love slave, who knew how to sing, pray, praise, honor and obey the Lord.

We are promised so much in the Word.  From the peace that passes understanding to joy unspeakable, full of glory.

From healing the sick to raising the dead.  From being the head, to receiving a crown. 

Blessings here on earth now, to our homes in heaven.

All these promises are true.  Are we true Servants, (love slaves), of the Lord?

We must learn to yearn to be His, desire to be holy, spotless, perfect in our love, if not our lives. 

Our old man refuses to stay dead,  we sin, we miss the mark, we disappoint each other and ourselves.

As long as we take responsibility for our actions and ask forgiveness, He is Faithful and just to both Forgive and Forget.

We are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, as long as we remain under the covering of His blood.

Become a love slave.  Read, Meditate on all the Word of God.

Jesus freed us from the law, but not from the Blessings of Holiness, Trust, Obedience.

He didn’t relieve us the Blessings of Praise, Prayer or Fellowship with the the Lord.

He just made it more Personel, Easy, Fruitful.

Learn to sing the Word to the Lord, from the writings of Moses to John, there is plenty to sing, praise and pray.

Find the scriptures that speak to you today.  They are there for the Strength, Forgiveness, Hope, Direction, Comfort….whatever, whosoever (you and me), needs.

God is there.  His promises are true.  He has Goodness and Good things for those who are true Servants of His.

A simple truth.

He sent His Son, not to condemn, but to save the world.

A simple truth.

A simple truth.

(Are) the desires of thine heart. . . (just lust)? :

Psalm 37:4
Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

The desires of thine heart. . . . Sometimes our hearts desire is not a wonderful thing.  It could be something that brings us grief,  sorrow,  troubles and pain.

We love to think of getting the desires of our hearts,  but we neclect to delight ourselves in the Lord;  and that my friend is our down fall.

Has our desire grown into lust?   Do we want something so badly that God will give us this desire,  even if it is hurtfull?   I have always concidered lust to be a sexual thing.

Mt 5:28
Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

We lust after many things,  not just sex.

I heard the Lord say: 12/20/14

“This is your last Christmas “.

IT WASN’T. It is funny how you can be sure you have heard His voice, and have misunderstood, miss heard, don’t understand the time frame. Well I am not sure which I did, but I have lived through an other Christmas.

If you are Interested, this is the post that was supposed to follow my departure.

If you are reading this, that was a word from the Lord. As I write, It is now April of 2015, I feel alot better than I  did in December.  But I  woke up this morning  with the thought to get my house in order.

Today I tune a couple of pianos for Gail Ebron.  What a treasure she and Gene have been.  God fearing customers since I started in business, along with the Tunnels probably my most steady customers for 20 years.  Thank you.

I  do have a very small life insurance policy,  but I am afraid my trust is in God to take care of Bette and Celeste. I am sure He will do a better job without the help I’ve given Him the last 30 years.

My 2 girls have been my biggest blessing,  they have given me love and joy that I  have not deserved.  I am so proud of them both.  It is just God, that I ended up with such a wonderful family.

I failed  to be the miracle working man of God I desired to be.  I tried to Submit to God and Resist the Devil.  I wanted to be a useful vessel.  A man God could trust, rely on, depend on, to walk with Jesus.

Some days I almost am.  Others I am out in the puker brush doing my own thing.  God forgive me.  I ‘m not anything but a sinner saved by His Grace.

Work wise I have a few pianos I wish I had never seen.  Work that I failed, never should have attempted.   I gave every job my best, on some my lack of knowledge, experience led me down the garden path.  Thank God I  gained the knowledge and experience to see fewer of these each year.

Other than family, this blog has given me a reason to go on.  It has been a blessing to share whatever insights I’ve received from the Lord. I  pray it has caused some to get a little closer to our Saviour.

I may add more to this as time goes by.

12/16/15
Get your house in order….I have failed at that also. Will I die before Christmas? Some days I think so. Others I feel fine, till I don’t.

I need to finish getting the piano parts ready for Bette to sell, same with the train things. There is so much stuff I should throw away, before I go away.

More importantly, Celeste graduated from UNCW, with a gold cord…so proud, Lord, please bless her with work she enjoys and is financially satisfying.

Taylor is a good kid, bless them both please Lord. If they marry, may he be a better husband, father and provider then I have been.

I worry about Bette, lots of low sugars lately…Lord, please guide and protect her….Thank You for her, she is a blessing.

Lord, thank you for this blog and the people who have read, followed and liked my writing. I pray You have been Glorified as I have been satisfied. I do hope You have used it to touch hearts.

I look at this, (the blog), as all I have to leave my girls, and they don’t even read it. I had hoped a book would be the result of some posts…..lol.

Jesus, thanks for allowing me to teach your Word at FMUMC. I pray they walk closer to You because of what they have learned.

The choir has been a blessing also. Thanks.

Bless our extended families. I trust You will take care of my girls. I love You.
Blessings

ps
I am obviously alive, it doesn’t change my feelings of failure, regret, and satisfaction. Our lives don’t run in a straight line, we weave and bob, zig and zag.

We do our best to be the people we dream to be. Faithful, loving, selfless, forgiving, helpful, joyful, peaceful, Christ like.

Well, there’s always next year.

Blessings to all. May the Lord, help us to see Him as we look at our reflections in the eyes of others. Change our hearts O Lord. . . .
