TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage!

Are you sitting on the side lines, watching others do the things you wished you had time to do? Has opportunity knocked at your door, only for you to have to turn it away? Or, perhaps the enemy made you feel you couldn't attack anything else - your life was too full already.

Don't let the enemy make you miss something for which you feel you are ready. Don't pass up the opportunity, only later in life to say, I could have done it - only I didn't have the faith and courage to go ahead and try. He is always going to make you feel inferior, but he doesn't know you like God knows you. Know that, when something comes from God, that God has already made provision for the time in your life. He won't let you fail - failure is not in His vocabulary!

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

I see in the stars, in the rivers, I see in the open fields, patches of heaven and threads of paradise. Let me sew the earth, the day, the way of my life into a pattern that forms a quilt, God's quilt, to keep me warm today and always.
--Christopher de Vinck

~~ Great Sayings ~~

Give GOD what's right, not what's left!
Seven days, without prayer, makes one weak!
Trade GOD your pieces for HIS peace!
Life is fragile, handle it with PRAYER!
Man's way leads to a hopeless end! God'S way leads to an endless hope!
Everytime, the devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future!!!
He who kneels before GOD can stand before anyone!
Grace is not an excuse to sin, but it is the power not to!
When JESUS is all we have, we realize, JESUS is all we need!
Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, FAITH looks up!
JESUS became what we are, so we can become like HE is!
If you're a Christian, earth is the only hell, you'll ever know!
If you can't sleep, don't count sheep, talk to the shepherd!
In this life it's not what you have, but who you have that counts!
There are many things in my life for which I am ashamed, but JESUS is not one of them!
Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death!
Be an organ donor, give your heart to JESUS!
If you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything!
Christ's return is near......don't miss it for the world!!

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

Hindrances to the Interior Life
Continued from last week:

3. Cowardice. God does not forbid patient, submissive pleading, but murmuring fears are displeasing to Him, and He withdraws from the soul that will not lean on Him. Cowardice manifest itself when in the trials of life we rebel against the Divine will that sends us illness, calumny, privation, desertion; when in dryness of soul we leave off our prayers and communions because we feel no sensible sweetness in them; when we feel a sickness of the soul that makes us uneasy, and fearful that God has forsaken us.

The soul estranged from God seeks diversion in the world; but in the midst of the world, God is not to be found; when temptations come, wearied, frightened, and tormented, we wander farther and farther away from Him, crying, "I am forsaken,: when the trial has really been sent in order to keep us on our guard, prevent our becoming proud, and offering us an opportunity for showing our love.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
