Every Day is a Journey

Every day is a journey from when I wake up in the morning till I go to sleep at night or the next morning.  Some Journeys are short, and some are long. Many journeys have a trial or two along the way, but what is great about my journeys, no matter what, I know my Lord is in complete control.  I have to remember every trial, great or small is for His glory!  (For we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 kjv)  Every journey and every trial through that journey has a purpose.  HIS GLORY!

So may the Lord help me to glorify Him through every trial.

Love and Seek True Wisdom (Spurgeon’s Faith’s Checkbook)

From Charles Spurgeon’s “Faith’s Checkbook”
Love and Seek True Wisdom
August 23
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. (Proverbs 8:17)

Wisdom loves her lovers and seeks her seekers. He is already wise who seeks to be wise, and he has almost found wisdom who diligently seeks her. What is true of wisdom in general is specially true of wisdom embodied in our Lord Jesus. Him we are to love and to seek, and in return we shall enjoy His love and find Himself.
Our business is to seek Jesus early in life. Happy are the young whose morning is spent with Jesus! It is never too soon to seek the Lord Jesus. Early seekers make certain finders. We should seek Him early by diligence. Thriving tradesmen are early risers, and thriving saints seek Jesus eagerly. Those who find Jesus to their enrichment give their hearts to seeking Him. We must seek Him first, and thus earliest. Above all things Jesus. Jesus first and nothing else even as a bad second.
The blessing is that He will be found. He reveals Himself more and more clearly to our search…. Happy men who seek One who, when He is found, remains with them forever, a treasure growingly precious to their hearts and understandings.
Lord Jesus, I have found Thee; be found of me to an unutterable degree of joyous satisfaction.

My Daughters First Symphony-Daily Prompt

I can remember my daughters very first Symphony. A family friend had given her and several others a ticket to go to this special event.  She was about 16, and so excited. She had long wanted to go, and at last the opportunity arose.

She was so unsure what to wear, but wanted to look her best. So she decided on a black dress accented with white pearls.  She was just glowing.

She has played the fiddle ever since she was 5, and even before played some on it. So the interest of hearing a Symphony with all the different instruments had been around for a long time.

Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.

Psalms 33:3 KJV

When she got home she was telling her dad and I all about the conductor and the different pieces of music they played. There was many different instruments, and she was amazed with it all.
She had such a great time.

Then she went on to say, when they got to the Symphony all the girl assistants or workers to her surprise were also dressed in nice black dresses. 

When they were handing out programs they were unsure whether to give her one or not.  Politely, she smiled and took one.  She won’t be wearing her black dress again, but did really look beautiful.

What a blessing it is when the Lord puts it on someones heart to give in a special way. That was special to Charlotte. It will be a time in her life she will always remember.

I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Acts 20:35 KJV

The Eunuch’s Journey

I love reading this story.  It is such a blessing to read how the Lord speaks to hearts in different ways.  There are so many beautiful stories in God’s word, which is the best of best books to read.


​And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.

And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

  Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

  Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 

 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

  And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.

  The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:

 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?

  Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? 

And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

  And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

  And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

Acts 8:26‭-‬39 KJV

How did the Lord touch your heart?

 It was on a Sunday night for me.  I was under deep conviction all day.  When the preaching was over Sunday night, I stepped out and to the alter I went. Praying, I confessed my sins and gave my heart to Jesus.  How forgiving and how merciful our Lord is!

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Ephesians 2:8‭-‬9 KJV
