The Lord Liveth !

My life & learning to surrender to His Will

Peace !

sabbath 5-26-17

“Holiness is not rapture: it is an entire surrender of the will to God; it is living by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God; it is doing the will of our heavenly Father; it is trusting God in trial, in darkness as well as in the light; it is walking by faith and not by sight; it is relying on God with unquestioning confidence, and resting in His love.” Acts of the Apostles, p. 51

“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” Hebrews 12:14

Happy Sabbath !!

Shabbat Shalom !

I worked from home today as I was sick, but I did take breaks and went into my garden. And somedays it’s all about getting down on your knees and admiring the beauty of flowers I haven’t planted and I think no one celebrates the return of the sun like a simple dandelion. These little ones teach us that life is a glorious masterpiece and we should live in colours and acknowledge the Creator ! Happy Sabbath, everyone !

“But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.” Psalms 13: 5, 6

Peace…

So… I’ve been putting off state inspection for my car and I only remember it when I see a police car on my travels and then I cringe and hastily mutter to myself….”don’t let him notice my sicker”… so far it worked.. but today was a long day and after sabbath worship services, and lunch, I was getting home from church and I got stopped and I knew what he was stopping me for, as I wasn’t speeding for a change, much to my misery (do you know how boring it is to drive at prescribed speed limit ?), due to heavy traffic. But today is Sabbath and I was like oh no I am gonna get ticket, as I always make it a point that no one works for me like landscapers, house cleaners, handymen, etc. during sabbath hours and I’ve fired landscapers for that reason as well. And so when the police came up to me and he is like.. “my name is ….  and I’m recording audio-visually, etc.” and I didn’t quite catch that and I’m like what did you say ? you went too fast  and he actually laughed out loud and went slower this time and is like… you know your state inspection sticker is expired, why is that ? I went “because I’ve been forgetting in general until I see a police car” and then I proceeded to tell him, can you please not give me a ticket as today is Sabbath and went into the general discourse about my Sabbath rules. I am pretty sure he thought I was crazy but he went back to his car to do the routine whatever they do, after looking at my registration and insurance and came back with a form and told me that I need to get the inspection done in 15 business days and I’m like what is the date of the 15th business day and he is like I don’t have a calendar to which I wrinkled my nose and he is like “or I can give you a ticket”… le bastard ! so I got the form and he is like “do you have any questions for me” to which we both stared at each other and we laughed so hard the passing cars positively slowed down to look at us …… !

Shalom !

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well – Psalms 139:14

No matter how intellectually connected we are to the Scripture, that connection has no power except through the blessing of the Holy Spirit. And that blessing is only obtained through worship and prayer. And also Jesus is our best…and sometimes, ….. the only friend.

Sabbath blessings to us all !

 

And now for something different….

So Thursday evenings are one long race trying to get things done as I usually spend my Friday evenings preparing meals for Sabbath before sun goes down… so Thursdays it’s like go home, feed kids, eat dinner, go food shopping for them, food shopping for me (usually for Sabbath meals), get gas in the car, deposit the shopping at the house, take the rubbish to the curb for the rubbish people, run to ballet class, go to gym for an hour, go home, shower and get in bed… but today when I went home I had no food to consume and so I decided I’ll drop by my local pub (I haven’t been here before) and pick something up and so I marched in and then I realized I forgot my glasses and so I asked the girl to read the menu for me… she is like where are your glasses….. and I pointed out my car to her and am like do you see those blinking lights… that’s my car and the glasses are inside… after she and I laughed a good five mins, I ordered a veggie burger and I am pleased to say that 1. The veggie burger was edible 2. This is a newly opened pub and I can walk to it. 3. I can have nice Irish tea sitting outside on the roadside as I swear I’ll get buzzed just by inhaling the alcoholic fumes inside the pub. I always wanted an English tea shop at the end of a road near my house, this is no English tea shop but close enough !

Happy Sabbath

Happy Sabbath !

Sabbath 4-14-17

We keep the Sabbath because He is our God and because He is our Redeemer !

“No human agent can supply that which will satisfy the hunger and thirst of the soul. But Jesus says,….’I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst (John 6:35).’ The more we know of God, the higher will be our ideal of character and more earnest our longing to reflect His likeness.” Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing, p. 18

Happy Sabbath to us all, children of the Most High God !
