TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage!

Today's world is moving at a fast pace! Just get out on those over-crowded interstates, especially during the day, and you'll realize what I mean. Other drivers don't want you to get in front of them; it's too intimidating! Then, there are those that think tail-gating is a sport! To them, maybe it is, but, to those of us that are being tail-gated, it's definitely not!

There's another tail-gater that needs to learn that it's not kosher! He keeps popping up when he's unwanted, or least expected. He thinks he needs to be 'in on' every little detail of your life. He pushes and pushes until he succeeds in most cases, unless you are very diligent in keeping him out! The enemy will be upon you like a knot on a log, if you aren't careful to read the Word, pray, and seek God daily! If you aren't 'prayed up', you'll definitely be 'staying up', trying to figure out the strategy with which you can defeat him.

2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

'THIS AND THAT' ...
Joy, Humor, and Faith on the net!

PRAISE THE LORD

He is the First and Last, the Beginning and the End!
He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!
He is the Architect of the universe and
The Manager of all times.
He always was, He always is, and He always will be...
Unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone!
He was bruised and brought healing!
He was pierced and eased pain!
He was persecuted and brought freedom!
He was dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings Peace!
The world can't understand him,
The armies can't defeat Him,
The schools can't explain Him, and
The leaders can't ignore Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him,
The Pharisees couldn't confuse Him, and
The people couldn't hold Him!
Nero couldn't crush Him,
Hitler couldn't silence Him,
The New Age can't replace Him, and
Donahue can't explain Him away!
He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.
He is goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God.
He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure.
His ways are right,
His word is eternal,
His will is unchanging, and
His mind is on me.
He is my Redeemer,
He is my Savior,
He is my guide, and
He is my peace!
He is my Joy,
He is my comfort,
He is my Lord, and
He rules my life!
I serve Him because His bond is love,
His burden is light, and
His goal for me is abundant life.
I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise,
The power of the powerful,
The ancient of days, the ruler of rulers,
The leader of leaders, the overseer of the overcomers, and
The sovereign Lord of all that was and is and is to come.
And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size.
His goal is a relationship with ME!
He will never leave me,
Never forsake me,
Never mislead me,
Never forget me,
Never overlook me, and
Ever cancel my appointment in His appointment book!
When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!
When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!
When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!
When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!
When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution, He shields me!
When I face problems, He comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!
When I face Death, He carries me Home!
He is everything for everybody, everywhere,
Every time, and every way.
He is God, He is faithful.
I am His, and He is mine!
My Father in heaven can whip the father of this world.
So, if you're wondering why I feel so secure, understand this...
He said it and that settles it.
God is in control, I am on His side, and
That means all is well with my soul.
Everyday is a blessing for GOD Is!

PASS THIS ON IF YOU MEAN IT
I love the Lord and thank Him for all that he does in my life,
therefore, I passing this on. Yes I do love Jesus.
He is my source of existence and my Savior.
He keeps me functioning each and everyday.
Without Him, I will be nothing.
Without Him, I am nothing but with Him I can do all things.
Philippians 4:13

SNIPPET FROM THE MANTLE
A word or two from...

Maranatha Christian Journal

CNS NEWS-Members of the House and Senate Wednesday along with religious parishioners and leaders held what was billed as the first ever "House-Senate Majority Faith-Based Summit" to discuss how the public and private sectors can work together in hopes of getting faith-based services to the poor and needy of America.

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

The work of the Sower is given to each of us in this world, and we fall short of our duty when we let those with whom we are brought in contact leave us without having given them a kind thought or pious impression.

Nothing is so sad as the cry, "I am useless!" Happily none need ever be so.

A kind word, a gentle act, a modest demeanor, a loving smile, are as so many seeds that we can scatter every moment of our lives, and which will always spring up and bear fruit.

Happy are those who have many around them . . . they are rich in opportunities, and may sow plenteously.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
