#Laws are #changing within a #blink of the eye or should I say #mask! Who makes your #rules?  Do you have a Dictator, or Czar, or Potentate, or President, or Govenor, or Mayor decreeing statues by which you must comply?  We are seeing what child play of yesteryear called “fruit basket turnover”.   Rules/bylaws are being overturned daily!  I am so thankful to tell you GOD NEVER CHANGES HIS LAWS.  “Blessed is the one who does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly…but delights in the LAW OF THE LORD in which he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:1,2  Let us say ..”Teach me good judgment and knowledge of GOD’S statutes as I remember thy name, O LORD, and keep thy law.” Psalm 119:55,68 “For there is one lawgiver who can save or destroy” James 4:12   “FOR THE LORD IS OUR LAWGIVER AND JUDGE…HE WILL SAVE US” Isaiah 33:22  Who is really in charge?  “LAW OF THE LORD IS PERFECT” Psalm 19:7  “What shall we say then? Is the law sin?  God forbid.  I would not have known sin, lust, coveting but by God’s law…For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD” Romans 7:7, 6:23   THE LIVING GOD THE LAWGIVER  RULES    


#WORK seems to be #destained today.  I am observing many who seemly want somebody else to take care of them while they accomplish their self indulgence, because WORK is beneath them. “Exertion & toil of strength or facilities to accomplish something with labor” is Websters’ definition of work.  Obviously, many do not know the most High Majestic LORD’S WORK.   “CONSIDER THE WORK OF GOD” Ecclesiastes 7:13  “In the beginning GOD CREATED heaven and earth….GOD FORMED MAN in His own image Male and Female created He them”  Genesis 1:27  “WORKS OF LORD are Great, Honorable, Glorious, Pleasurable, & to be Remembered” Ps.111:2  “How Great are  WORKS of GOD’S HANDS which have made me GLAD” Ps.92:4   Does your work bring joy to others?  “Mighty in Work and Counsel, GOD’S eyes are open to all the ways of men giving them each according to the fruit of their doings” Jeremiah 32:18,19  [pay to play] It is God who WORKS IN YOU both to will and do of His good pleasure Philippians 2:13  Trust, follow, listen to the Master !  “BE CONFIDENT OF THIS VERY THING THAT GOD WHO BEGAN A GOOD WORK IN YOU WILL PERFORM IT UNTIL THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST” Phil.1:6


from Barbara's Bible

Do you ask yourself, ‘Who Cares?’  I answer myself, “GOD DOES!”  What or Who gives me that assurance ?  GOD’S WORD TELLS ME SO.  “Consider my affliction and rescue me for I do not forget thy WORD” Ps.119:154  “In my distress, I cried unto the LORD AND HE HEARD ME” Psalm 120:l “WHEN EVIL COMES UPON US, I CRY UNTO THE LORD IN MY DISTRESS AND GOD WILL HEAR AND HELP” 11Chronicles 20:9 “Trust in the LORD for He is our HELP and SHIELD” Psalm 115:9  You see YOU matter to GOD and HE actually listens to you!  You don’t need to have a code for He has your number…”I LOVE the LORD BECAUSE HE HAS HEARD MY VOICE AND MY SUPPLICATIONS AND HAS TURNED HIS EAR UNTO ME; therefore I WILL CALL UPON HIM AS LONG AS I LIVE.…for HIS MERCIFUL KINDNESS IS GREAT and the TRUTH of the LORD ENDURES FOREVER”  Psalm 116:1.2-117:2  GOD CARES ABOUT YOU !!!


Today I have observed that most individuals think #commands are to be #ignored, #negotiated, or #changed according to their #desires!  As I was growing up in Texas many years ago, parents, teachers, and police had #authority.  Today I hear something like…”this is your honey do list” if you wish to do it!  God does not change nor does His Word.  “ALL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS ARE SURE AND TRUE STANDING FAST FOREVER AND EVER” Psalms 111:7-10  I see our nation listening to popular self centered idolatry while actively turning their backs on camera to GOD’S COMMANDS.  What does Isaiah 48:17-22 say? “The LORD said, ‘O that you had hearkened to my commands THEN you would have peace and righteousness…but there is no peace unto the wicked”  As I  watch the news, I hear and see what is right being portrayed as wrong and wrong being made right. “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken, cast down, but not destroyed…We have the spirit of faith believing and knowing Lord Jesus shall raise us up…for GOD COMMANDS HIS LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS INTO OUR HEARTS GIVING KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST..THAT THE EXCELLENCY OF THE POWER MAY BE OF GOD AND NOT OF US”  11Corinthians 4


Wouldn’t it be #nice to be #comforted today?  Are you #stressed?  Feeling #lonely?  Heard  #bad #news?  Tired of #isolation and #masks?  Where do you turn?  In times like these, I need warm loving #reassurance from THE LIVING GOD.  I just read Isaiah 51 “Fear not the reproach of men or their reviling – moths shall eat them up like a garment..but God’s righteousness shall be forever and His salvation from generation to generation.  Awake with the STRENGTH of the ARM of the LORD AROUND YOU as HE SAYS, I, EVEN I AM HE THAT COMFORTS YOU”  Do you need a hug today?  Turn to our maker the Eternal Living God.  Paul tells us in 1Corinthians, “Blessed be the GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, the Father of mercies and GOD OF ALL COMFORT: WHO COMFORTS US IN ALL AFFLICTION so we may be able to COMFORT OTHERS IN ANY AFFLICTION  with the COMFORT which we ourselves are COMFORTED BY GOD”  Pass it on…...SHARE

WHATCHA DOIN? is a popular #Bitmoji today. What are you doing #NOW?  Have you resumed your #lifestyle and #work routine?  Covid has curtailed our activities and caused many changes to the way we view life.  I have observed that the people who are working seem to be doing double duty for those who refuse to labor.  As a child I was taught to help (work) around the house with dusting, dishes, polishing furniture and floors, gardening,  cooking; however, today I see all ages wasting away on video games or glued to their phone!  We are made in the image of GOD.  What’s GOD DOING?   DOES GOD WORK?  “The WORKS OF GOD’S HANDS ARE HONORABLE AND GLORIOUS STANDING FIRM AND TRUE FOREVER”  GOD keeps on keeping on….”The WORKS OF THE LORD ARE GREAT AND SOUGHT OUT BY ALL THAT HAVE PLEASURE THEREIN AS HE MADE HIS WONDERFUL WORKS TO BE REMEMBERED”  Psalms 111  Are you seeking guidance now?  “THE MIGHTY GOD, LORD OF HOSTS IS GREAT IN COUNSEL AND WORKS BY OPENING MENS EYES TO GIVE EVERYONE ACCORDING TO HIS WAYS AND DOINGS”  Jeremiah 32:19    ‘WHATCHA DOIN?”


Are you always #searching for #directions?  I have observed our present #population glued to #technology transmitted over the air waves?  Even walkers have on earplugs keeping them entertained or giving information.  I wonder if they ever #look up? or #smell the blossoms? or #smile?  If you ask a question of someone today they get out their phone and check the internet.  Does it seem that society is being directed and steered by data stored on our airways?  Who is your source in life?  To whom do you turn?  Do you ever read a book today?  Or do you just rely on what is being promoted by prominent individuals to influence your decisions for their personal welfare?  I think it time to read the Word of the LORD for guidance!  If you can’t read then listen to an audio Bible reading while hearing Truth proclaimed.  We all need a guide through the rough dark waters, and even during  the beautiful bright events of our life. Who or What is your source for life directives?  “The Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, is His name, Great in Counsel and mighty in work, opening your eyes to all the ways of men; giving every one according to the fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 32:18,19  God knows all, sees all sooo seek His wisdom and strength by walking with THE LIVING GOD.  “FOR THIS GOD IS OUR GOD FOREVER AND EVER: HE WILL BE OUR GUIDE EVEN UNTO DEATH” Psalms 48:14


Suddenly #No #Power in your #surroundings!  We are all having more setbacks caused by power #outages whether it is no #electricity, #gas, #water, #food, #internet or #leadership.  Where is your power source?  Have you not known?  Isaiah 40 tells all….”Understand from the foundations of the earth that it is the LORD who sits upon the circle of the earth …and brings princes to nothing and makes the judges of the earth as vanity….HE shall blow upon them and they shall wither being taken away as stubble.  Lift up your eyes on high and behold the LORD who has created all things and can bring out the hosts in great number whom He calls all names by the greatness of His Might, for GOD IS STRONG IN POWER.  Have you not heard?  The Everlasting GOD, The LORD, the CREATOR of the ends of the earth – faints not..The LIVING GOD GIVES POWER to the FAINT and INCREASES THEIR STRENGTH.  Even the young shall utterly fall, but THEY WHO WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH.”  The Living God is our “Power, Light, Water, Bread, Fortress, Victor, & Redeemer.”  God’s supply never fails!
