A busy, beautiful Monday morning hello!
So much to do this glorious day but just have to share a quick word with you from my Morning reading from Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon.
Speaking of the HOLY SPIRIT, he writes in part:
“. . . .who now visits the chaos of your soul, and creates the order of holiness.”
Do you get from this as I do that it is un-holiness that brings chaos to our souls? That it is sin, ours and others, that creates chaos around us and within us? And it is HIS holiness within us that brings blessed, wonderful ORDER to us? Yes!
Yes, come, LORD JESUS, bring us Your Order. Oh, HOLY ONE, come in this moment and begin and continue Your holy work of conviction and convincing us and those around us that holiness is the answer we are desperately seeking. Even as You have commanded us, ABBA, we pray to be holy in practice as You have made us in position in CHRIST JESUS.
Matthew 5: (King James Version)
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Psalm 18: (The Message)
16-19 But me he caught—reached all the way from sky to sea; he pulled me out Of that ocean of hate, that enemy chaos, the void in which I was drowning. They hit me when I was down, but God stuck by me. He stood me up on a wide-open field; I stood there saved—surprised to be loved!

Psalm 51: (The Message)
7-15 Soak me in your laundry and I’ll come out clean, scrub me and I’ll have a snow-white life. Tune me in to foot-tapping songs, set these once-broken bones to dancing. Don’t look too close for blemishes, give me a clean bill of health. God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life. Don’t throw me out with the trash, or fail to breathe holiness in me. Bring me back from gray exile, put a fresh wind in my sails! Give me a job teaching rebels your ways so the lost can find their way home. Commute my death sentence, God, my salvation God, and I’ll sing anthems to your life-giving ways. Unbutton my lips, dear God; I’ll let loose with your praise.

In your praying today, Dear Friends, please remember Kerri — continuing to ask for calcium balance and healing; Sandi Leon comes to mind here — asking for healing; and Kathy and Joe, still rejoicing over this miracle and looking forward to seeing what ABBA does with it; no doubt prayers would not be wasted on DeLois and family; and Megan, Dawn, Iris P; Torkel – hoping he will go home today, but don’t you know if you were in his place you would want prayers too; young ones, Grace and Lilly – I don’t have fresh word on them but we know JESUS says bring the little ones to Him, so lets do that; and another Kathy comes to mind, she and her family need the touch of JESUS; so does Sharon. And for sure you have others.
Blessed to bless,
