Hello from Barbara's Entourage

'Gather At The River' OR Jump In?

When I was young, a bunch of kids, along with our parents, would go down to the creek. There used to be only sand rock where there is now a high bridge. One could drive a car so far out into the creek, and wash it. We could also walk out there, and play around in the water that slid over the rocks at times. I always thought this was neat. But, as the years went by, they built a better road and finally a good bridge across the creek, leading to another town.

It was fun to 'gather at the river', but we didn't stop there, most times. We usually jumped in, playing around in the water. It was hot, and we wanted to get wet! It's no fun just 'looking' at the water; more fun to get it on you!

Just as with gathering at the river, in life, most of us gather at the river, spiritually. We seem to go so far, and never go far enough to jump in and get wet. It seems to be enough just to be saved, and not be bothered with anything else. Worship is singing a song, praying a prayer, and going home. But, God wants more than that from us. He wants a people that are unashamed to give themselves wholly to Him, to be used by Him. He doesn't want someone that is lukewarm, afraid to show emotion. So, be bold; step into the water - get wet for GOD!

Romans 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Romans 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Heavenly Father, help me be bold!! I want to give my all for you, to be sold out completely. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.

All Scriptures are taken from the King James Version of the Holy Bible.

*The 7 Ups*

1. Wake Up !! Decide to have a good day. "Today is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalms 118:24

2. Dress Up !! The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. "The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance; but the Lord looks at the heart." I Samuel 16:7

3. Shut Up!! Say nice things and learn to listen. God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking. "He who guards his lips guards his soul." Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!... For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything. "Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good..." Galatians 6:9-10

5. Look Up !!... To the Lord. "I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me". Philippians 4:13

6. Reach Up !!... For something higher. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path." Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up !!... Your Prayers. "Do not worry about anything; instead PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING." Philippians 4:6

A word or two from ......

Christianity Today
By:J.I. Packer

Won't heaven's joy be spoiled by our awareness of unsaved loved ones in hell?

First, I resonate with the question to the depths of my soul. Loved ones of my own, some living, some dead, have not shared my faith in Christ. That is painful.

Read the story: Hell's Final Enigma

<((< -- <((< -- <(< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((<


Excellence of the Interior Life

They let themselves be guided by Him, as the blind let themselves be led by the child in whom they confide; they bear all suffering that comes from Him, as the sick,in order to be healed, bear suffering at the hands of a physician; and they lean on Him, as the child leans on it mother's breast.

It lifts them above the troubles and miseries of life; the whole world may seem a prey to calamities; themselves, deprived of their good through injustice or accident; they lose their relations through death,their friends through treachery or forgetfulness, their reputation and honor from slander, a serious illness deprives them of health, their happiness is destroyed by hardness and temptations , , , Ah! no doubt, they will have these trials, no doubt they must shed bitter tears, but still God's peace will remain to them,the peace that passeth all understanding; they will realize God has ordered it, guided it with His Hand Divine, and they will be able to exclaim with joy, "Thou art left to us,and Thou art all-sufficient!"

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
