We know that life is difficult and filled with all kinds of things that call for our attention. Sometimes the call is loud. Sometimes it is just aggravating. Sometimes it is like a sore toe that you keep hurting over and over again. These things will try to steal not only our peace and joy, but also our time with God. The time we spend with God in His Word and in prayer, meditation, and praise is the most valuable and productive thing in the garden of our life. Let us not get so caught us in the cares of today, that we forget the One that has all the "good seeds".

May we look unto God who is our shelter and our deliverer when calamity comes our way and there seems to be no answer.

Psalm 57:1-3 KJV

Be merciful unto me, O God: be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me. He shall send from heaven and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.

Let us give praise to God because He is our God. He is full of mercy kindness, love, and blessings! Psalm 67:5-7 KJV

Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

There is an old saying that sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never harm me. This is not true. Words are important and powerful and once they are said you cannot "unsay" them. God’s words are powerful. When darkness covered the earth, He said, "Let there be light or light be" and there was light. Do you know that your words shape your life? What we say is very important. We must listen to what we say. If you have a tendency to open the mouth and let the words fly, you need to ask God to help you. We need to think before we speak. We can avoid lots of drama if we only say what God says.

Planting seeds! Is there an art to it or do you just throw them out on the ground and hope for the best? We know that if we are to have pretty flowers or a garden that produces a good crop of vegetables, we must prepare the ground. The same is true with us spiritually. If we expect a crop of love, joy, peace, etc, we must prepare our hearts to receive God’s Word and act on it. Many people hear God’s Word and agree that it is right, but do not do what He says. We must prepare our heart, mind, and soul to receive if we are going to have production. Let us prepare to hear and do things God’s way today.

What are you eating these days? It seems that everyone is concerned with food, natural food. It is a good thing that we eat correctly, but it is a much better thing if we eat spiritual food. Jesus said that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God. Where do we find these words? The words of God are written in the Bible. In these days we need to know what God has said to us and know that these words are personal - said personally to you. When we receive them as our personal words, we will be able to stand and shine in the storms of life.

Jesus said that you are the light of the world! He also said you are the salt of the earth! Therefore we need to be light and be salt. What does that mean? We are to let the light of the good news of hope in Jesus shine in our lives so others may see Jesus in us. What does salt do? It is supposed to season food in order to make it pleasant to the taste. Too much salt will ruin the food! We are not to be "salty" but we are to "season" our world with the goodness of God. If you will be light and be salt as Jesus commanded, you will see the results of the good news of the gospel in your life.

Where is your treasure? Is it on the earth or is it in heaven? Treasures on the earth can disappear over night. When we lay up treasure in heaven it is eternal. Where our treasure is that is where our eyes and thoughts will be. Jesus said that when we are focused on the things of eternal value, our eyes are full of light, but when we are focused on the natural things of this world the light in our eyes is very dim. If the light of God in us is dim, we will stumble and probably fall as we travel the path of life. Victorious living comes as we have our focus on eternal things so that God’s light may shine on our path.

May we give praise to our Mighty God who is merciful and blesses us day after day. Psalm 67:1-4 KJV

God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us. Selah That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all the nations. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.

Let us remember that even when we do foolish things, God does not forsake us. He is always there when we repent and return to Him.

Psalm 73:22-26 KJV

So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee. Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou has holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
