ALOHA FAMILY & FRIENDS,  Beloved in Christ Jesus,  John 3:16-18

THE REFRESHING,     “WORTH CONSIDERING”    10/22/19   (Across my desk this morning.)

Today’s Scripture
“When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs. The autumn rains will clothe it with blessings…”  (Psalm 84:6, NLT)
Be Transformed

Do you feel like you are walking through a tough place in your life today? The psalmist wrote of “passing through the Valley of Weeping,” but not of “settling in the Valley of Weeping,” or “getting stuck in the Valley,” or “building a house in the Valley.” The Valley is temporary; you’re walking through it, and God is walking with you. He wants to strengthen and empower you to keep moving forward. He is leading you to a place of blessing and refreshing!

Be encouraged today that God always causes us to triumph! The Bible says that weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning! It also says that the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn shining brighter until the full day. No matter how dark your circumstance may seem, you are on a path that is shining brighter and brighter. Know today that there is a place of victory on the other side of your challenge. Keep believing and keep expecting. As you continue to meditate on the goodness of God and declare His favor in your life, you will be strengthened and refreshed in your inner man. You will rise higher and higher, and you will live the life of victory the Lord has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, thank You for leading me to my place of blessing. I trust that You are faithful and believe that You have a good plan for my life. Help me to always hear Your voice so I can follow You all the days of my life.”

My Thoughts:
We have all heard the adage that there is no fool like and old fool.  Well,   I am finding as I am getting rather old now at 87 that I am learning to laugh at many of the temptations that use to dump me.  It seems that the lies of the lust of the flesh, eyes and pride of life are becoming such obvious lies that I nearly say out loud,  “Oh, it you again.  I am 87 now and that thought is dumber than a rock.  It is now a chore to get to the mailbox or drive 20 miles to town, devil, you are nuts.”  As I get older the array of temptations are now more easily seen for what they are,  a waste of time.  Time that could be invested in the soon coming of the Kingdom of Christ Jesus.  Time that I can send ahead even in this blog to family and friends.   I know that many are too polite to tell me to turn it off but then some read it from time to time and at least one brother has made a big book already of this blog.  So I see it as a good investment of my time in seeking to help others to join with me in having victory in this life over the world, flesh and the devil.  A hundred years from now in eternity, what is going to matter?  What will be the best investment of time.  If you really really believe you are headed for living with your Creator God in Heaven your life will totally reflect that direction of faith.  If your time is focused in the worldly creature comforts of this world perhaps you have been deceived.   Perhaps you are a hypocrite,  and actor?  Christ Jesus was very clear,  read this scripture with real determination for truth and light if you want to know where you are.

24 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains [just one grain; it never becomes more but lives] by itself alone. But if it dies, it produces many others and yields a rich harvest.  25 Anyone who loves his life loses it, but anyone who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. [Whoever has no love for, no concern for, no regard for his life here on earth, but despises it, preserves his life forever and ever.]  26 If anyone serves Me, he must continue to follow Me [[a]to cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying] and wherever I am, there will My servant be also. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.  John 12  AMPC

The New Testament if full of this kind of teaching,  do you really believe it???  If so , your life will exhibit that fact as above in the way you are now living your daily life.

Yours,  in HIS great love on the beautiful Tuesday morning from Kealia, Hawaii.  Ken<><   (For past blogs: find the link “Worth Considering” on our Homepage.  Also read “Keys To The Kingdom.”  )

There is but one Church of Christ Jesus and all who truly love and obey HIM are members.
