PRAISE THE LORD NOW YOU CAN CLICK ON THE LINKS BELOW TO GET YOUR OWN DAILY BREAD OR IN TOUCH DEVOTIONAL MAGAZINE OR BOOKLET. You can use the devotional below as well. As you learn to LOVE reading God's Word. I encourage you. To read one chapter a day, To memorize one verse a month. To have a closer walk with God. And another most important thing to do is take time to Pray, 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. I am still going to write in my own devotionals too. In hopes that it will further encourage and uplift you in your daily walk with Jesus. This will be my own words an/or poems and verses from the King James Version only. To God be the Glory Bonnie 2-18-2010
A Tragic way to go
March 17, 2010 When our
Children go before us Memory verse: Romans 6:23
It hurts so deep especially when it is a tragic death. My son Paul died because he turned away from God and sought his own way and made his own decisions. I wish I could have reached him. I wish God could have reached him, but he did not want to be reached. Maybe he was sad and depressed about the road he was taking and didn't know how to come back to God. God is in Control and took him home, because God knew there was no hope other than going home to Him. Today, a friend of mine lost his youngest daughter to alcohol. I pray he isn't blaming himself. My friend gave his life to Christ over 15 years ago. He is a alcoholic, and has been going to AAA for many years. He hadn't been a help to his children, before he was saved, but he became a wonderful Christian man. I know he tried to be a testimony to his children and tried to reach them for Christ. I am praying that God's loving arms and comfort will encircle my friend. I know his pain. We have a comfort that we will see our children again someday if they are saved. I Thessalonians 4: 13-18 I pray she was saved. God help my friend JD.
I am living by faith in Jesus above, trusting, confiding in His great love. From all harm safe in His sheltering arms, I am living by faith and feel no alarm

When a Neighbor is a Grouch
March 18, 2010 Ephesian 4:1-32 Memorize: Galatians 6:9-10
What do you do when a neighbor complains about things they don't know anything about?
I am living with a friend and their neighbor thinks she needs to confront me about matters that concern my friends, not me. Do I confront her back or stay out of it? Today I just waved at her and she started in complaining about my friends dog. I answered back and started to explain, but this neighbor didn't want to hear what I had to say. At first, I admit I was upset with her. I wanted to tell her to mind her own business. I wanted to say just ask my friends and don't ask me. I came back into the house and was shaking, because I don't like confrontations like that.
I am trying to avoid her and at the same time wondering if I should say anything when she talks to me. My friend says this neighbor has never been nice. Okay, I say pray for her Bonnie, let God speak through me, Pray I can be a testimony to her. Help me Lord if and when I face her again.
Help me, Lord that I might see. What is bothering my neighbor next to me. I pray that I can be a good example of your love. And show your strength and guidance from above.
