Morning Meditation 12-11-19

I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever;
    with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known
    through all generations.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
    that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
    I have sworn to David my servant,
‘I will establish your line forever
    and make your throne firm through all generations.   Psalm 89:1-4

Think about God has established David’s throne forever. What does this say about the nature of prophecy?

This is the challenge where Melanie asks questions and in answering her we all share our worlds.

Here are her weekly questions and my answers. When you have finished reading my responses click the link in the opening line and check out Melanie’s site for more sharing posts.

QUESTIONS FOR THE WEEK 12-9-19:

What is truth? (Credit to Ursula https://anupturnedsoul.wordpress.com/2019/12/05/which-side-of-the-mirror-are-you-on/Jesus said “I am the way, THE TRUTH, and the life.” John 14

What’s one thing people would never know about you just by looking at you?  There is not much you can tell just by lookng at a person. Here are a few things people would never know just by looking at me: I am a minister, I play the piano, the flute and I sing, I have a sister, a son, two daughters and a grand daughter.

Do loud noises bother you? It depends on the loud noise. I am bothered by loud obnoxious people even though I am occasionally one of them,  but I love loud music.

If you were guaranteed the correct answer to just one question, what would you ask? Where do all the threads lead?


GRATITUDE IS AN ATTITUDE

Share Your World 12-2-19

Well here we are breaking into the last month of 2019! I can hardly believe it! I can also hardly believe all that has happened between this time last year and today. Well, we don’t have time to share it all today…BUT WE DO HAVE TIME TO SHARE A BIT OF OUR WORLDS BY ANSWERING MELANIE’S SHARE YOUR WORLD QUESTIONS. 

By clicking the link above you can go to Melanie’s world and there take part and reading and if you desire answering her questions. Here are those questions and my answers.

Questions:

What’s your remedy for the Holiday blues?    For myself,  filling to much of my holiday world with events and not saving enough quiet time is one sure way to fall into a holiday funk. So making sure I keep time and space aside to breathe and be alone helps me. Also keeping the reason for the season front and center is a must for me. The old adage is true…”Know Jesus, know peace. No Jesus, no peace.”

Your favorite beverage (if it differs) during the holiday season?  If it doesn’t differ, just answer the ‘what’s your favorite beverage” part.  I am actually a fan of winter wassail.

This one has been asked before, but what’s your take on pumpkin spice? I love pumpkin spice, but I am a bigger fan of slated caramel and mint.

Is there is a person or god connected with your holiday?  Yes and as stated above, keeping Him front and center in the holiday helps me keep the holiday blues at bay.

  • Who are they and do you believe in them? Jesus is the center of Christmas for me.
  • If you do not believe in these people or gods, does the celebration/honoring of that being, bother you in any way (e.g., ignored, dismissed, angry, etc.)?

Gratitude:

Share a song that you enjoy during this Winter season (whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, The Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa and so forth.

This is actually pretty hard because there are so many. Ok I will break it down to two.
