FEELING CLOSER

ruthI am sorry your husband has passed away. I am sorry that I have nothing else to offer you. Please stay away from me and go your own way. I will not go away from you. I will not leave you in your time of heartache, seeking only my pleasure, I will remain with you and serve your God.

Your God and people will become my own. I will dwell in your land with you and become a part of your lineage.  Very well! Remain with me. Now listen to my words and become blessed. Because my words will follow the words of my God and he prospers those who are obedient to his will.

You may be at the verge of losing all. You may have lost it all. You’re choices thus far have served other gods and yourself. You come from idol worship and now you have chosen to receive a better portion. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has rescued many. He has saved and restored those who worship him. Those who turned away from wickedness have received his forgiveness and love. Becoming triumphant!

It seems the day I made the choice to obey and serve your God I have been feeling closer. Your God is a giver of life to those who serve and worship him. Your God provides and gives aid to the needy. He helps those who are outcast from the wealthy and those who appear wise in this world. I love your God! I am glad I made the decision to serve him. Thank you, Jesus, for providing your sacrifice for my sin and sanctification. I am feeling closer everyday.

TOUCH SOMEONE

holding hands
My alarm clock rings

I turn the clock off and rise from the bed

Missing the warmth of the bed and the silence of sleep

I think

I have been given another morning

possibly another day

What will I do with the day I have been given

I will use what I have been given to be a blessing to another

TOUCH ME

Screen Shot 2016-02-07 at 2.19.38 AMI recall from the womb the first touch. The touch of the hands of my mother. The touch of the hands of my father. The touch of the hands of the doctor. The touch of the hands my Christian School Teacher, who would lay hands upon my head and speak a mystery, she called tongues. The touch of the greeting members at church. The touch of the coach. The touch of my first girlfriend. The touch of my brother and sister. The touch of my friends embrace, after facing trouble. The Bible has a lot to say about touching.

The unholy and immature thoughts of the godless may at first be offended. The abused and those hurting through inappropriate touching may strike cords of hatred, resentment and anger. Touching has been a tool used to manipulate and cause anguish, but there is a touch that brings healing and warmth. All touching is not good and there is an appropriate time for touching and a time to refrain from doing so, but in its proper season it is powerful.

The women with the issue of blood cried within herself if I but touch the garment of Jesus I would be made whole. Many where healed through the touch of napkins from the apostle Paul. The anointing may be transferred through touch (1 Tim. 4:14).  The letters you see upon the screen appear through the touch of my fingers upon the keys and if you glorify God from reading this post, I assure you that God will touch you.
