                                                         Discipline

I AM A CHILD:
                                  
Discipline me not for the childish things I do – I am normal . . .  LOVE ME.

I AM "ADAM’S CHILD": 
                                 
Discipline me when I behave as Adam’s child – I am sinful . . .   LOVE ME STILL.

I AM YOUR CHILD:     
                                  
Discipline me with tenderness, compassion, mercy – as your Heavenly Father does 
                                    you, t
hen through your actions I may learn His ways, see Him, become His child–I am
                                    teachable . . .   
LOVE ME INDEED. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     (c) B. Abley

 


 

     Steady Stimulus

 

 

The LORD is my Shepherd ... 

... surely
GOODNESS and MERCY
shall follow me

("dog my steps")
ALL
the days of my life ...



What a thought!!!    GOD's goodness and mercy "hounding" me as long as I live!

Unrecognized Answers to Prayer
God ALWAYS provides... for the need that is GREATEST.
 
 
 "O God," I cry, "I really need some quiet -- O blessed solitude!"
  His wisdom knows I need fellowship -- so He sends a multitude.

 "Lord, in my present circumstance what I need is real prosperity!"
 He sees my greatest need and, because He cares, gives scarcity.

 "I'm desperate, O God, to know You are listening, hearing my request!"
Then, Divine silence is all I hear; His love chooses what is BEST.

     Food for Thought 
 


Contentment should be the hallmark
of the man or woman who
has put his or her affairs in the hands of God.

"God is far more interested
 in what a person can be than
 in what a person has been."
