In my personal communications with Bevery, I always called her Angel. As most know I use a lot of backgrounds and graphics in the emails that I send out, that come to me from folks who make those (called Stationary), with my email program Incredimail. Often times, they would send beautiful graphics and backgrounds of angels. Beverly was an angel collector. She had little statues and knit knacks of all differnt kinds of angels in her home, so when I would get one, I would forward it her, almost instinctively. And many also know, Beverly did send out a whole lot of emails everyday. LOL. Yes, when I see an angel graphic or a background or a poem about angels, I always think of Angel Bevery, and little tear of joy goes up to heaven to tell her that, "I will always remember you Angel, because you are forever in my heart."

Hey Everyone,

We are trying to reprint Angel Beverly's beautiful poem, because something messed up with the other one. So, let's see if it works this time. Say a little prayer, ok?

Thanks, Karen




PLACE YOURSELF IN THEIR HANDS

When things seem down
And often very hard
Just keep a smile on your face
And give it to the Lord

Jesus loves each of us
Much more than we'll ever know
He'll comfort and protect us
Till we're back on the go

We all must suffer hardships
As we go along life's way
It's the only way we'll appreciate
When we have a happy day

We can't have heat without cold
Nor rain without the dry
We must have dark, black clouds
To enjoy a bright blue sky

As we go through life each day
We will have ups and downs
This happens in large cities
As well as very small towns

There will always be an opposite
No matter what it is
Some drinks are very flat
While others have lots of fizz

Some days we'll feel very weak
And other days, we'll feel very strong
Just remember on those strong days
Our Lord and Savior is helping us along

God sends us so many blessings
To make our lives happy each day
He even sent His only Son
To wipe all our sins away

Have faith in our Creator
And in our Lord and Savior, too
Always know they are with us
Protecting me and you

Place yourself in their hands
They'll protect you from all harm
They'll bring you to the other side
Whenever there is a storm


ALL PRAISE AND GLORY TO GOD


BEVERLY LAWYER ~ JUNE 4, 2010

We hope that everyone can see this ok and that our dear "Angel, Beverly" will know that we will never stop missing her. God bless you all and we thank you for spending time with us.

On behalf of Doug and everyone else, whatever you do, Don't forget to PRAY AND PRAISE THE LORD.

Love to All!!!!!

This was one of Brother Doug's first bible readings dated April 13, 2009. I have posted it again. Our prayers and thoughts are with you Brother Doug! We all miss you and hope you will be back soon!



TODAYS TEXT ARE ALL ABOUT DIRECTION.


"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD:

And he delighteth in his way"

(Psalm 37:23).


"In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths"

(Proverbs 3:6).


"And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not;
I will lead them in paths that they have not known:
I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight.
These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them"

(Isaiah 42:16).


Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

Isaiah 42:13-17




The Lord will appear in his power and glory.

He shall cry, in the preaching of his word.

He shall cry aloud in the gospel woes, which must be preached with gospel blessings,

To awaken a sleeping world. He shall conquer by the power of his Spirit.

And those that contradict and blaspheme his gospel,

He shall put to silence and shame; and that which hinders its progress shall be taken out of the way.

To those who by nature were blind, God will show the way to life and happiness by Jesus Christ.

They are weak in knowledge, but He will make darkness light.

They are weak in duty, but their way shall be plain.

Those whom God brings into the right way, he will guide in it.

This passage is a prophecy, and is also applicable to every believer;

For the Lord will never leave nor forsake them.

Here is a poem that brother Doug wrote from his heart:



Inspirational Christian Poetry

Posted by Doug Holt on Sun Sep 09, 2012 9:13 pm

"The best way to cheer yourself up
is to try to cheer somebody else up."
Mark Twain


A smile can make a difference

It does not take too much

A Hug Is Extra Special

I Love Hugs . the Human Touch,

A chat on the phone Is Great,

When You want to cheer up a mate

Or need someone to show they Care

In Despair, together share a Prayer,

Written Letter or Cards We Treasure

Memories That Will last forever

Communication Is Important see

Whether you're alone or part of a family

So Let the people you Love Know

How you feel, NOW!

Could be their, Or Your Time to go

We never Know when It Will Be

Our Lord And Savior has it in his Diary

My Advice is communicate While you can

And do our best to follow our Saviors plan

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR

Focus Day Two Of Two: Fear, Anxiety and Worry… What Does the Bible Say?

Image

OPENING HYMN:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zC617kE1 ... re=related



BIBLE READINGS:

26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:26-28 NIV



“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work” 2 Thes. 2:16-17 NIV

Image

MESSAGE FROM DOUG:

SIN IN YOUR LIFE –



Sometimes fear and anxiety are the result of one’s own sin and guilt.



If you have committed a sin or done anything evil, your fear and anxiety is probably God and your own conscience trying to get your attention.



You need to repent, confess your sin, seek God’s forgiveness, and set it right.



Many people are worried and anxious about events that will never actually happen.



Relax.

Chill out.

Focus on today.

Do something different.

Smile a lot.



If You Have Nothing to Smile About, TAKE ACTION and FIND SOMETHING TO SMILE ABOUT.



Take life one day at a time.



LET US PRAY:

SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BagH-zTfnsQ



Lord another trial has come my way,

Please stay close to me today.

Lend me the strength to carry on,

May my decisions be right and not be wrong.

Hold me up when I stumble and fall,

Please show me I'll get through it all.

Let me forever lean on you,

Knowing you know what to do.

Lord, with you there is always hope,

Thank you for helping me to cope.

When I am down, Lord let me see,

That you, dear God, are still molding me.

Written by Eva Dimel, inspired by God



This was one of the first prayers our dear sister Eva posted at Nethugs. Thank You Eva. (HOPE)

Doug.

Image

IN CLOSING:

Friends Guest and Visitors, thanks for being with us once again today.



We thank our Lord for giving us the opportunity to share his word for HIS GLORY.



Love as always in His precious name,



Doug, Eva, and the team.

OPENING HYMN:

LET US PRAY:
IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD.

The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

THERE WAS A MAN SENT FROM GOD, WHOSE NAME WAS JOHN.

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the LIGHT, that all men through Him might believe.

He was not that LIGHT, but was sent to bear witness of the LIGHT.

That was the true LIGHT, which LIGHTETH every man that came into the world.

He was in the world and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.

But, as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the SONS OF GOD, even to them who believe upon his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of man, BUT OF GOD.

And the WORD was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of that of the only begotten of the Father,) FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH. (John 1:1-14)

The next day John seeth JESUS coming unto him, and saith BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD, WHICH TAKETH AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD. John 1:29

Image

POETRY:
The heavens are endless leading to who knows where
Yet, you hear my voice calling to you, in secret prayer!

The world is full of grief, sorrow and pain
Yet, your comfort is bestowed on many, time and time again!

Your love is endless, unconditional to everyone
Over and over, you have proven this to us, since the world begun!

Your beauty surrounds us, every which way, we look about
Carefully you thought about us, so we would not do without!

My Creator, My God, My Heavenly Father, you've given us so much
What would we do, without your loving touch?

Forever, keep us safe within your loving care
Watch over us and guide us, as we come unto you in prayer!

Praise and glory be given unto you on this, your Holy Day, most Gracious Lord, O Mighty One,
And unto Our Lord Jesus, King Of All Kings, Your Most Divine Loving Son!

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Mark 12:13

BIBLE READINGS:
Encouraging Bible Verses.

I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me. Psalm 13:6

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23:6

KAREN’S DEVOTIONAL, FROM JOY IN THE MORNING MINISTRIES:
PRAYER MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Good Morning and God Bless You All. I am so excited about the new format and by the Way God is using all of our ministries and workers to combine our efforts all for the Glory of God...........!!!

DAY AFTER DAY, PRAYER AFTER PRAYER THAT IS PRAYED AND DONE SO IN FAITH, OUR GOD IS ANSWERING. WHAT IS THERE ABOUT THIS JOY IN THE MORNING GROUP OF PRAYER WARRIORS THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE???

In order to be heard by God, there are some basic hints that will help us all to become more successful. We MUST believe the scriptures; We MUST be faithful to our calling; We MUST KNOW that God hears and recall that we have seen Him perform these miracles constantly when we have come together to lift people up in prayer.

I am so filled up with JOY IN THE LORD today! Prayer is so powerful. Our God teaches us to be:

1) OBEDIENT; if we are truly saved and truly love the Lord, we will be obedient. Each of us are given gifts and we are unique unto ourselves. He will bring these gifts to our hearts and minds and teach us how to use them for Him. We cannot do it on our own. Pray for God to guide us to do His will. If you trust in Him, the Holy Spirit will teach you and you cannot fail.

2) Trust the Lord in every circumstance of your life. Do not try to figure it out. IF YOU LOVE GOD, you will obey Him. If you do that, He will guide you and take care of you. Remember His love is unconditional. Let us try to never let Him down.

3) Psalm 27:14 says, ‘Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart; wait, I say, upon the Lord’. This is one of the most difficult things to do. We are not patient people. But God's timing is never wrong. Have faith, continue to pray and WAIT!!!

4) Be Patient; and from Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding. In all of thy ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy path.

God ALWAYS answers our prayers. Remember that when God's answer is "NO", there is a reason why and I have found that it is because He usually has something far better in mind for you, than that for which you have asked.

EVERYDAY THAT WE LIVE DRAWS US CLOSER TO THE RETURN OF OUR SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST. WE MUST MAKE SURE EVERYONE KNOWS THAT HE IS NEAR..........EVEN AT THE DOOR.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL TODAY AND IT IS MY PRAYER THAT YOUR PRAYERS WILL LIFT YOU INTO THE VERY PRESENCE OF GOD. GOD BLESS YOU ALL TODAY AND PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO ‘PRAISE THE LORD!’

LOVE KAREN

PRAYER UPDATES:
The Prayer Warriors of Joy in the Morning Ministries have had a busy week. BUT GOD HAS BEEN MUCH BUSIER AND HE HAS SENT US WONDERFUL BLESSINGS ALL WEEK. Here are just a few updates:

Matthew Cecil: After a rather frightening experience with what appeared to be an infection in his leg, with God's guidance to the doctors in putting him on very strong antibiotics, he was able to go fishing last week. We PRAISE OUR GOD for his progress. Continue to pray that God will restore him completely.

Karen Kelley: Karen continues to have a battle but that is why she is such a Warrior. She faces many difficulties and it is a long road ahead. Please keep her in your constant prayers and ask God for a miracle for our Karen.

Chandler Gonzales & his mother, Angela: Chandler has been sick on many different levels for a long time. Because of his wonderful mother, Angela, and such a compassionate God who heard all of your prayers, after finally getting appointments with 2 doctors on the same day on Thursday, Chandler was checked out for both his kidneys and for his eyes, given new medications and does not have to go back to those doctors for 6 months. Angela is praising our God and has told me to thank all of you who have been praying. Please continue to pray for this family.

Remember, the entire internet Ministry Team as they are all in need of prayer for different issues. They are so dedicated that Doug and all of his team are second only to God in keeping this all coming to you. Remember them in prayer.

There are many, many more. Please go to http://www.openmyeyeslord.net which is Steve Politte's wonderful website and look on the PRAYER REQUEST pages for daily updates from JOY IN THE MORNING and many other prayers groups who need your prayers.

Thanks to Brother Doug and his team of God's Faithful for this opportunity. I'll see you all next time. Love to all of you from Karen Bunker and the Prayer Warriors of JOY IN THE MORNING MINISTRIES.

MESSAGE FROM DOUG:

I remember from my earlier days PRAYING this prayer at every church service.

PEACE IN OUR TIME LORD

In these days of conflict the world is in turmoil. We have to pray for the world’s leaders.

We MUST LET OUR LORD GUIDE US.

"LORD, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us" Isaiah 26:12

~+~ God's Guidance~+~

There're times when I just want to cry,

It seems like so much has passed me by.

Because of fear I can't be free,

There is so much to do and so much to see.

I want to laugh, not be afraid.

To live life to the fullest each and everyday.

And then I realize where I've been,

How God has stuck by me through thick and thin.

How far I've come since yesterday,

With God's guidance showing me the way.

His love and strength help me get through,

And do the things I want to do.

There are times to laugh and times to cry,

And times that I still wonder why.

My answer comes from God above,

Who's teaching me patience and how to love,

Without Him I don't know where I'd be,

Thank you God, for forever taking care of me.

Written By Eva Dimel, Inspired By God

IN CLOSING:
