The Great Value of a Pure and Seeking Heart

Earlier my son Peter had read in Jeremiah 29:13 (NKJV) “You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Now he had seen this promise spoken by Jeremiah come true in Cornelius’ life. He learned that God works to reveal himself to those that sincerely seek Him. I was so touched by the insight the Holy Spirit had given him.

1 John 5:20 (KJV) -And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

So with the promise of God; my eye must not be so much fixed upon the greatness of the mercy-that may stagger me; as upon the greatness of the promiser-that will cheer me. My soul, it is God, even thy God, God that cannot lie, who speaks to thee. This word of his which thou art now considering is as true as his own existence. He is a God unchangeable. He has not altered the thing which has gone out of his mouth, nor called back one single consolatory sentence. Nor doth he lack any power;..

Ephesians 4:21 Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, 22 throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. 23 Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. 24 Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

The Invisible Mom “ God sees you right where you are. I am reminded of the story of Hagar in the desert. Abraham and Sarah had forced her to leave and now she was alone with her young son in the desert. It is there, all alone, and presumably out of sight, when Hagar discovers she is never out of God’s sight. He is El Roi – the God who sees. He sees her right where she is even in her darkest moments. The God we serve is still the God who sees.

I wish instead of giggle it said laugh so hard you cry or pee your pants, but the concept remains the same. Make sure they make you laugh.

When God puts love and compassion in your heart toward someone, He's offering you an opportunity to make a difference in that person's life.

Careless soul, why will you linger, wandering from the fold of God. Hear you not the invitation? Oh, prepare to meet thy God. Careless soul, oh heed the warning, for your life will soon be gone. Oh, how sad to face the judgment, unprepared to meet thy God.
