TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

When I'm on the road, I constantly look at billboards, and especially those signs in front of churches. Today, near my daughter's home, I saw a church sign that read 'The birds have returned, the grass is green, and God has done it again!' I wondered just how many people might read that sign and think it wasn't much of a message. But, within those few words, I saw God's goodness, His ability to fill our life with pleasant things such as the birds, and make the world beautiful.

Coming home tonight, I looked as far as I could see across town from the interstate. The world was lit up with lights. I looked up at the sky, and the night was dark, with only a couple light spots, which happened to be two planes flying into the airport. I thought to myself, GOD is so good! He has provided us with talented people who have made life so much easier with all our conveniences, and safer with all the the safeguards in place.

But, without God, we are lost. Life is meaningless, although many may disagree. But, I've found, through the years, when others leave you, He is still there. When you think you've lost your last friend, He is still there. When prosperity leaves you out, He is still there. When the electricity goes out, He is still there. When the storms come, He is still there. And, when the safeguards fail you, HE is still there!! God never changes!

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

WHAT IF GOD HAD VOICE MAIL?

I have learned to live with voice mail as a necessary part of modern life. But I have often wondered, What if God had voice mail?

Imagine praying and hearing this:
Thank you for calling My Father's House. Please select one of the following four options.

  • Press 1 for requests.
  • Press 2 for thanksgiving.
  • Press 3 for complaints.
  • Press 4 for all other inquiries.

What if God used the familiar excuse, "All the angels are helping other customers right now. Please stay on the line. Your call will be answered in the order it was received."?

Can you imagine getting these kinds of responses as you called on God in prayer?

If you would like to speak with Gabriel, press 1. For Michael, press 2. For any other angel press 3. If you'd like King David to sing a psalm for you, press 4.

To find out if a loved one has been assigned to heaven, enter his or her social security number. For reservations at My Father's House, press the letters J-O-H-N, followed by the numbers 3-1-6. For answers to nagging questions about dinosaurs, the age of the earth, and where Noah's ark is, wait until you get here.

Our computers show that you have called once today already. Please hang up immediately.

This office is closed for the weekend. Please call again on Monday after 9:00 a.m.

Thank God, you can't call Him too often, you only need to ring once, and God hears you.

Because of Jesus, you never get a busy signal. God takes each call and knows each caller personally.

"Then you will call and the Lord will answer, you will cry for help and He will say, 'Here I am.'" - Isaiah 58:9

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

Charisma News

Jesus hits the big screen this weekend in parable form. A new movie set to open nationwide today follows the character Joshua as he arrives in small-town Auburn, gets a job as a carpenter and proceeds to perform acts that appear to be miracles, leading many locals to suspect that he may be Christ.

Read the story: Film is "Modern Parable of Jesus"

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

Excellence of the Interior Life

All saints must lead this life, and their degree of holiness is in proportion to the perfection of their union with God.

CHRIST animates their souls, even as the soul animates the body.

They own Christ as Master, Counsellor, and Guide; and nothing is done without submitting it to Him, and imploring His aid and approval.

Christ is their strength, their refuge, their defender.

They live in constant dependence upon Him, as their Father, Protector, and all-powerful King.

They are drawn to Him, as the child is drawn by love, the poor by need.

To be cont'd.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
