  1. @turtletwo Yes, that is so true. The longer I’ve been saved and the more I get to know Jesus, the longing to be with Him gets stronger. Especially since my mother went. That turbo charged my relationship with Jesus that I have never experienced in my life before. What a 12 months I’ve had with Jesus. I was a believer and was saved years before my mother went to Him last year, but the last 12 months, my relationship with Him has soared and I have grown much closer to Him. This worldly system now just passes me by. I just want to live in Jesus.
  2. Love that crush'd for us its Treasure, Him in who was all Thy pleasure, Christ, Thy Son of love? Couldst Thou bruise Him, there forsaken On the cross His love had taken, 'Gainst Thy Son Thy sword awaken, 'Gainst Thy Son of love? Couldst Thou crush Him, Man of Sorrow,- Pierce His soul with wrath's fierce arrow, Melt that heart, rend joints and marrow- Doom Thy Son of love? Cross that outraged Love Paternal! Cross of agonies supernal! Cross of grief of The Eternal! Cross of boundless love! @turtletwo What beautiful scriptures. I have just read through them all and so refreshing and gives all of us who are in Jesus such comfort, security and looking forward to such a wonderful eternal future with Him. Thank you for posting this. Love you sis. Xxx
  3. I love this one. O soul, are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see? There’s light for a look at the Savior, And life more abundant and free! Refrain: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace. Through death into life everlasting He passed, and we follow Him there; O’er us sin no more hath dominion— For more than conqu’rors we are! His Word shall not fail you—He promised; Believe Him, and all will be well: Then go to a world that is dying, His perfect salvation to tell!
  4. @Jubilea Amen to what you’ve said and completely agree with you. What you said reminds me of this wonderful hymn. O soul, are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see? There’s light for a look at the Savior, And life more abundant and free! Refrain: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace. Through death into life everlasting He passed, and we follow Him there; O’er us sin no more hath dominion— For more than conqu’rors we are! His Word shall not fail you—He promised; Believe Him, and all will be well: Then go to a world that is dying, His perfect salvation to tell! I shall also post that hymn on @turtletwo’s hymn thread. Thank you Jubilea. xxx
  5. Agree with you @Jubilea On that link that takes you to the longer version of that devotional, it says worry and fear go hand in hand. Rejoicing and praising the Lord and keeping our eyes on Jesus at all times is the way to combat focusing on our worldly circumstances. God bless you. Becky.
  6. Continuing to pray for you @Willa Please keep us up to date how you are and what’s happening. We all love you. God bless, Becky.
  7. I’m so pleased she’s ok. Only just seen your prayer request as I would have been praying for her too. You are regularly in my prayers John. God bless, Becky.
  8. Praying for you and your mother too @Debp Praise the Lord you aren’t affected by the fires. I am relieved. Great to hear you’re feeling better @plavious I continue to pray for you and your family. I also get concerned when I don’t see your posts for a while. You are a much loved member here at Worthy. Becky.
  9. Praying for your Aunt. And for you too Samantha. God bless, Becky
  10. Praying for James. God bless, Becky.
  11. Oh I am so looking forward to seeing Jesus. My mother has beaten me to it. I long so much to see Him. It will be overwhelming and more than awesome. Glorious. And we will be there before we know it. We’re on our way Home saints! Rejoice always and praise the Lord.
  12. For what does your soul long? Do you long to make the big bucks? Do you long to tell your husband off once and for all? Do you long for a full night's sleep? Do you long to get your own way or express yourself without reserve? The Psalmist longed for the courts of the Lord! David longed to simply spend time with God in the loveliness of all that was found in God's presence. You will never experience the joy that was intended for you, until you solve this issue of your longings in life. When at last you long for the presence of God and for doing life His way and not your own way, it is at that precious moment that you will receive His joy. When at last you realize that your life is not about you ... but that it is about Him ... that you will experience the rich satisfaction of the joy found only in His presence. Your soul's deepest and most urgent longings will only be delighted by Him. I hope that you have experienced the amazing satisfaction that comes from singing a song of praise to God. Next time you "feel" like exploding in anger ... how about singing a song of rich worship instead? Next time you "feel" like telling your side of the story ... how about bowing your head and allowing the words of a hymn to bring peace to your soul? Next time you you are criticized by the girl at work ... how about humming a worship song under your breath? Reprogram your responses from anger to song ... from frustration to worship ... and from impatience to praise. God really does care how we respond to these daily issues of life and I, like the Psalmist of long ago, will choose to sing!
  13. Don't Get Caught in the Worrying Trap - Your Daily Bible Verse - October 16 2018Apr 26 BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10) Don’t Get Caught in the Worrying Trap By Jennifer Waddle Peace, contentment, and overwhelming joy are the real attributes of an abundant life in Christ. But sadly, the cares of this world often overshadow those beautiful sentiments. Interestingly, right before Jesus spoke about having life abundant, He reminded His followers about the thief that comes in to steal, kill, and destroy. He didn’t share that to burst their bubble or discourage them. He said it to alert them to a very real and present temptation. Worry is one way the enemy robs us of enjoying the fruitful life Jesus spoke of. If Satan can get us to focus on the stresses around us, instead of focusing on the Holy Spirit within us, he has succeeded in stealing our abundance in Christ. Worry distracts us from God's truths. The father of lies wants nothing more than to distract us from the Word of God. From the very beginning, when he challenged Eve with the question, “Did God really say,” Satan has been on a mission to divert our attention from the truth. Often, when we are caught up in the cycle of worried thinking, we are too distracted to open our Bibles. Yet, that’s when we need God’s truths the most. My suggestion is to print out several key Bible passages to have on hand during times of worry. Post them in prominent places and read them often. The enemy doesn’t stand a chance in the light of God’s truths! Worry is a false comforter. People who deal with persistent worry have become severely dependent on the anxious emotions they feel. Sadly, it’s almost like a drug that is unwanted but hard to give up. Worry becomes a go-to source of comfort. Some of us even start to feel empty or lost if we aren’t continually worried about something. This may indicate it’s time to seek some help. Making an appointment with a trusted physician or meeting with a Christian counselor might be the best course of action for chronic anxiety. The truth is, worry is by no means a comforter or friend. It is a tool from the enemy to mask the true comfort we receive from the Holy Spirit.

  14. Hi @existential mabel Thank you for your prayers. I think it happened around late July, as first noticed the rash at the beginning of August. Not sure what the season times are for them, but before we moved, when we lived in Scotland, my dog Izzy was getting loads of ticks and we were always having to take them out of her. We moved on August 2nd and it was just after that I noticed the rash. How are you doing? I regularly pray for you as I know you are having a difficult time. God bless, Becky.
