TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

The Directions

We were given directions right to the soccer field this afternoon, or so we thought. We turned on the correct road, rode the two miles passed the school (mistake), passed the school buses, and no field! We were told, 'if you get to the stop sign, then you've gone too far'. Hey, the stop sign was no where near the school - way beyond that. So, we turned around and came back. Then, we were phoned new directions - turn left at the school buses. Hey, there was no road by the school buses, but then, the message came: 'turn right at the light by the fire station'. Now, why wasn't that in the original directions?

Have you ever tried to follow directions, only to find yourself lost, or you've gone so far out of the way, you wonder if you will find your way back? I don't like second-hand directions! I want the message relayed to me personally, and then, only by someone who really knows where they are sending me.

Spiritually, we need to be following directions, but only from someone who knows where they are sending you - someone you can rely on to give you directions you can stake your life on! The Bible holds directions from God - the one who lays out the directions to follow to eternal life. Directions should be easy to follow, and I don't think there is another set of directions that could get you directly on the right path more than these! His directions are: 1) Follow me, 2) Keep my commandments, 3) Endure to the end. We are to follow the straight and narrow path, always walk in love, and trust totally in God. The enemy will come against you at every turn, but, if you keep your eyes upon the Lord, then the enemy can't get to you. Be careful never to leave the door open to your spiritual life with sin, or satan will surely attack!!

The next time you feel you have gone in the wrong directions and lost your way, stop to talk to God. He's ready to listen and guide you safely back into the arms of safety!

Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Joy, Humor, and Faith on the net!

Did Jesus use a modem, at the sermon on the mount?
Did He ever use a broadcast fax, to get His message out?
Did the disciples carry beepers, as they went out and about?
Did Jesus use a modem, at the sermon on the Mount?
Did the Apostle use a laptop, with lots of RAM and ROM?
Did he use an email alias such as Paul@Rome.com?
Did the man from Macedonia post an email saying "come?"
Did the Apostle use a laptop With lots of RAM and ROM?
Did Moses use a joystick at the parting of the sea?
And a Satellite Guidance Tracking System to show him where to be?
Did he write the law on tablets, or are they really on CD?
Did Moses use a joystick at the parting of the sea?
Did Jesus really die for us that Friday on the tree?
Or was it just a hologram, a bit of wizardry?
Can you download the video clip to play on your PC?
Did Jesus really die for us one day upon a tree?
If in your life, the voice of God is sometimes hard to hear.
With other voices calling, His doesnˇ¦t touch your ear.
Then set aside the laptop and modem, unplug the fancy gear,
Open up that dusty Bible, And talk to Him in prayer.

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

LABOR

Begun cheerfully.
Continued perseveringly,
Interrupted and resumed patiently.
Finished perfectly and devoutly.
Repose and care for the body, as in God's Sight, under God's protection.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
