    'Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.' (Eph 6:16) Praise God! For His provision in Christ Jesus
  2. 'And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, .. behold, there were twins in her womb. .... And the first came out red, ...... all over like an hairy garment; ........ and they called his name Esau.

(Genesis 25:24-26) Praise God!
  3. 'And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: .. Abraham begat Isaac: .... And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, ...... the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, ........ the sister to Laban the Syrian. And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, .. because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, .. and Rebekah his wife conceived. .... And the children struggled together within her; ...... and she said, "If it be so, why am I thus?" ........ And she went to enquire of the LORD. And the LORD said unto her, ..

All these were the children of Keturah .. And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.

And he said unto me, .. "The LORD, before whom I walk, .... will send his angel with thee, ...... and prosper thy way; ........ and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, .......... and of my father's house: ............ Then shalt thou be clear from this my oath, .............. when thou comest to my kindred; ................. and if they give not thee one, .................. thou shalt be clear from my oath."'

    Hello @Sister Cess, Psalms 73 and 77 both deal with distraction, distractions caused by occupation with others, and with self, and in both cases the answer was to become preoccupied with God. However, you are a young single woman who has very natural feelings toward a young single man, who shares your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, which is lovely. The Lord knows your heart, he knows how you feel: talk it over with Him, commit your feelings to Him, and ask that His will be done; then just enjoy this young man's company when you have it, and get on with your life. For if it is the Lord's will that this young man should reciprocate by sharing the same feelings of attachment, then he will. Your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is not based on the way you feel, but on the promises of God, and is sure and steadfast, and cannot be lost. So smile and perform the function that you occupy within your Christian community with thanksgiving. You are God's workmanship, so rejoice in Him, and be glad. Within the love of Christ our Saviour, our Lord and Head. Chris

  14. 'And the man wondering at her .. held his peace, .... to wit ...... whether the LORD ........ had made his journey prosperous or not.' (Gen 24:21) Praise God!

    'Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.' (2 Corinthians 1:3) Hello @turtletwo, Your poetry reveals the comfort wherewith you yourself have been comforted of God. You have been given the ability to express that comfort for the comfort of others. Praise God! When I read the words of your entry quoted above, I thought of the following verses. 'Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him: ... ' (Job 13:15a) 'But He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.' (Job 23:10) 'Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. .. For I am persuaded, .... that neither death, nor life, nor angels, ...... nor principalities, nor powers, ....... nor things present, nor things to come .......... Nor height, nor depth, ............ nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.' (Rom 8:37-39) Praise His Holy Name! With love to you In Christ Jesus Our risen and glorified Saviour, Lord and Head. Chris
