BE-STILL,…AND: (“KNOW”)!...
Friends!... Make-no-mistake. God, hears-our-prayers!... Whether, they’re,…quick-or-slow!...

But, often-times,…the-very-pace / of-our-lives; mimics the pace, of our hearts. And, we need to allow,…ample-time / for Almighty-God; to speak into, not only our personal lives,…but also / the-lives-of, those: around us!...

Tell-me, dear-reader!... How many, life-giving moments,…have we / missed; by rushing?... And, by saying,…Amen!... *(and then, being done: with it all)*

So, let’s remember that,…*(Yahweh)* / is-our-refuge, and our: strength!... Yes!... Even, our-ever-present,…”Help” / in: troubles!...

Humble yourself, before,…His-Son!... Turn, your-washing-of,…hands / into: sincere – worship!... Yes!... Our-worldly-societies, scattered throughout this planet,…need-to-turn / their focus: back-to-God!...

Beset-by-quarrels, and countless,…fights; our battles for,…”one-upmanship” / make-us: enemies-of-God!... Yes!...

We, (“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”); must turn from, our sins. And, turn,…personally / toward: The-Holy-Spirit’s,…guidance!...
Friends!... Our, ultimate,…”well-being” / doesn’t-rest-on: the many false-senses,…of / security.

AND-SO,…IT: (“IS”)!...

Friends!... Have you ever, felt,…”worthless?”… Do you believe, no one will ever,…really / listen-to-you?... *(especially: if-they-know, your own past)*…

And, are you convinced that,…God / will-never,…use: you?...

Seared, into your,…heart-and-mind / are these; beliefs!... And, have these opinions,…ignited / years-long,…wars; easily believed, by,…you?...

Deep, within the,…inner-most-parts / of-your-soul; your own insecurities, and fears,…can’t seem / to ever: “escape!”…

Dear-reader!... Did you know, that the best,…kind-of-healing / comes-from-your,…own: personal testimonies?... Yes, sir!...

I-know-this, truth!... Why?...

Answer: Because, I’m a fine example,…of / that-person, mentioned: above!... That’s-right!...

Satan, will have you,…believing / these: full-out-lies!... *(if-you, allow,…him: to-influence-you)*…

Many-of-us, have experienced the,…”paralyzing-power” / of-negative-words; thoughts and opinions. Of both, yourselves and of what,…others / would-have-you: believe!...

Let’s combat,…”lies” / we’ve-accepted, about ourselves; by-learning,…God’s-Word!... Yes!...

Loving-Father!... “Help us, to prayerfully study,…our / Holy-Scriptures!... As, You,…help us / view-life; by-in-and-thru, the lens of,…Your-Truths!”… Amen.

Dear-reader!... We-are-those, who,…hope / even-in: grief!... Yes!...

Example: Being separated, from our loved-ones,…in-this-life / is-truly: hard!... But, losing a loved-one,…in / Death: is-much-harder!... Yes!... And, it creates a sense of,…loss / that-won’t, be made right; until we’re, reunited with,…them!...

When, the-new-believers,…at / “Thessalonica”; wondered about, such losses,…our / Apostle-Paul, wrote: *(read: 1st Thessalonians 4:13)*…

He, explained that,…as / believers-in-Jesus; we can live, in,…”expectation”: of a wonderful, reunion!... Yes!...

“Together”,…forever / in-the-presence,…of: Christ-Jesus!... The-Son-of-God!... Our Lord, and Saviour!... *(see: verse – 17)*…

Friends!... Few experiences,…(”Mark”) / us-as-deeply, as,…the-separations: we endure!... But, by-in-and-thru,…Jesus / we-have: Hope!... Yes, sir!... Amen. *(of-being: reunited)*…

And, in the midst of,…grief-and-loss / we, (His-Faithful-Followers); can find the comfort, we need,…in-that-enduring: promise!... *(see: verse – 18)*…

Father-in-Heaven!... “There’s nothing, on this,…Earth / that-can-fill; these deep places, in our hearts,…which-have-been / made: empty. By-in-and-thru, many previous,…losses!... Draw us, to,…Your-Son!... And, comfort us,…with / Your-own: Love-and-Grace!”… Amen.

P.S. Don’t be, uninformed about those,…who / sleep-in: Death!... So, that you don’t,…grieve / like-the-rest,…of: mankind. Who, possess no,…Hope!... Amen. *(read: 1st Thessalonians 4: 13)*…

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

FIRST,…(“FORGIVE”)!...

Dear-God!... “Help me, to humbly serve,…others!”... Amen.

Friends!... Let us, continue to serve,…one-another / the way,…a host; welcomes a guest. True-greatness, resides in,…”serving!”… Yes!...

May your life, be one of,…”reflecting” / our – Master: Jesus-of-Nazareth!... *(a-legacy-of: humbleness)*… (read: Mark 9:35)

“Anyone, who wants to be,…first / must-be; the very last. And, the servant of,…all”… Amen.

Having, tasted both,…”successes-and-failures” /I-today, credit my Faith: in our dearest,…Jesus!... Yes!... For, sustaining,…me.

Though, we-may-fall. We, shall-rise,…again!...

Dear-reader!... Those, who trust in,…”The-Father!”… These, very-same-will,…experience / difficulties: yes!... And, many hardships,…also / that’s-right!...

However,…The-Father / is: Faithful… He, will-give-us,…the strength / by-in-and-thru: His-Son!... Yes!... Put, your confidence in,…”The-Holy-Spirit!”…

He, shall guide you,…toward: Truth!...

Heavenly-Father!... “Thank-You, that,…in, every trial / and in, every,…disappointment: You’re-always-there, close to us. Offering, (who-believe); the comfort-and-strength, of,…The-Holy-Spirit’s / Presence-and-Power; this helps us, to rise-up,…once: more!”… Amen.

Friends!... From the seemingly-mundane,…to the / significant-struggles: “God-is-There!”… Yes!... God, also heals,…bitter / divisions: between-family-members!... Yes!...

But, 20-years-later,…Almighty-God / *(Yahweh)*,…calls-upon,… Jacob; to return to, their homeland. So,…Jacob / sent-ahead, bountiful-gifts,…to: appease – Esau!...

But,…Esau / ran-to-meet, Jacob; and embrace him. He, threw his arms,…around / his-neck,…and: kissed – Jacob!... And, they,…wept!... *(read: Genesis 33:4)*…

Their reunion, stands as a classic,…example / of; God’s-own-urging, to settle our anger,…with / a: family-member. *(before-ever-thinking,…of: offering God, any – homage)*… To include, even our own,…talents-and-treasures / to: God!... Amen. *(read: Matthew 5: 23-24)*…

Instead,…”First, go and be reconciled,…to / them; then come and offer, your,…gifts!”… *(see: verse – 24)*…

Jacob, obeyed,…God!... By reconciling with,…Esau. And, later,…setting-up / an-altar-to: God!... *(read: Genesis 33:20)*…

What-a-beautiful,…order!...

First, strive for,…(“Forgiveness-and-Reconciliation”) / then, at,…God’s-Altar: He, shall receive,…you!... Amen.

Dear-God!... “When, I hold onto,…hard-feelings / against-another; inspire me, on the way,…to,…Your-Altar / to - first: Forgive!”… Amen.

Often-times, it’s uncomfortable,…but / Almighty-God’s-Discipline; is truly a,…”Gift!”… Yes!... Although, we don’t always,…see-it / that: way.

Sometimes, we fear,…”God’s-Discipline!”… At-other-times, we,…misinterpret / bad-things, in-our-lives; as being,…”God’s-Discipline!”…

This, is-far-from,…the-very-heart / of-our: loving-Father!... He, disciplines us,…because / He: “Delights-in-us!”… Yes!...

And, He,…”corrects-us” / because,…He: “Loves-Us!... Amen.

May, we,…(“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”); learn to accept it, when we hear,…”God’s-Voice-of-Correction!”…

How do we, know it is,…present?...

Answer: In our,…hearts-and-minds / we will experience: “Convictions!”… Amen. *(especially-when-reading: His-Word)*…

May we, (who-believe); thank God, that,…He / “Delights-in-us”; enough to lead, us,…to-what’s: Best!... Amen.

God-in-Heaven!... “Help me, to recognize,…Your-Discipline / so-that-I,…can discover; the freedom,…You: offer!”… Amen. *(read: Proverbs 3: 11)*…

Jehovah!... You-are-my,…God!...

“Empower – me, by-in-and-thru,…The-Holy-Spirit!... So, I can show,…others / the-accessible-path; which leads to,…Your-Approachable-Son,…our-dearest: Jesus!”... Amen.

Friends!... We are all, invited to enter,…”Eternity!”… How,…so?...

Answer: By walking, this narrow-path,…of / reconciliation,…with: The-Father!... How,…so?...

Answer: By-in-and-thru, a personal relationship,…with / God’s-Son!... *(Jesus-of-Nazareth)*…

Your Friend,

Dear-reader!... Life, doesn’t always work-out,…the way / we’d-like-it: to…

WATCH,…(“HIM”),…CLOSELY!...

Friends!... Have you, mistakenly interpreted,…God’s-Gifts / as-some-object: of – praise?... Instead, of realizing that,…it’s / His-Mercy,…and: Grace?...

This-is-what, God,…extends / to-us: the most!... Yes!... Only, our,…Holy-God / *(Yahweh)*: is-the-truest, source of every,…”good-gift!”… Amen.

Both,…The-Father and His-Son / are worthy, of,…our: worship!...

Dear-God!... “I worship, You!... As my, all-powerful,…God!... The-very-One,…Who / hears-my: prayers. Yes!... Thank-You, for,…sustaining-my-life,…and / for: caring-for-me!”… Amen.

Dear-reader!... Know-this-Truth!...

The-Holy-Spirit, uses all of,…God’s / reliable-words; to truly transform,…us!... This,…”Spirit-of-Truth” / affirms-that, God’s-Story; will end,…well: for-all-believers,…in,…”His-Son!”… *(Jesus-of-Nazareth)*…

Friends!... We, (“Jesus’-Faithful-Followers”), may not know,…or / understand-everything: in – our, Bible!... But, we-do-know,…*(unequivocally-and-emphatically)*… That,…The-Son-of-God / returns,…and: He-will-not,…tarry!... No, sir!...

Jesus, brings,…with / Him: His-Father’s-Glory!... Yes!... Jesus, “vindicates” – us,…from / the-grasp-of: sin!... He, will,…”right-every-wrong!”…

Jesus,…makes / all-things-new: *(according-to: His-Father’s-Will)*… Amen. He, shall,…reign-over-us / as-our: Saviour!... Yes!... Forever!...

Now, I-don’t-know,…about / you,…but; in-my-eyes, that’s a great,…ending!... Which, only leads us,…to / a-new-beginning!... Amen.

“Just-Come, Lord,…Jesus!... Yes!... Just,…Come!”…

Dear-reader!... Our-living-God, He,…is / The-Master, of,…many: unanticipated-mercies!... Yes!... *(Yahweh: His-Glorious-Name)*…

He,…is-well-able / to cause: “Great-Good!”… And, He,…often-times / “springs-up”,…unexpectedly; out-of-the, hard,…gravel-pits,…of: Life’s – itself. Yes!... Look, for,…Him / in-your-most: unfavorable-circumstances!...
So,…(“WATCH,…HIM,…CLOSELY”)!... He,…may-do-it / again: today!...
Heavenly-Father!... “I-praise-You, for never changing. Your-Mercies, are truly,…new / every: morning. *(read: Lamentations 3: 23 )*… Help me, to look forward,…to / what,…You: have for me, today!”… Amen.

Friends!... Centuries, later,…our call / remains: pretty-much, the same. Yes!... That, is,…of-being,…able to / tell-others, about the wonders,…of-both: The-Father and His-Son!... Yes!...

Will you, leave your,…comfort-zone / to-talk-about: Jesus, to others?... Oh’, how-I-pray,…so!...
Each-of-us, in our own,…way / can, let someone,…else: know-about,…The-Father’s: “Saving-Grace!”… Yes!...
Jesus!... “Help me, to-be-ready,…to / tell-others,…of: Your-Good-News!”... Amen.
In-closing: Just know, that,…Jesus / has – (“satisfied”): His-God’s-Demands!... Yes!... You, today,…*(should-you-believe)*…stand / (“justified”) – and – (“reconciled”),…with: Your-Creator!...

That’s-right!... All-thanks-to,…Jesus’ / “many-good-works!”…
Dear-reader!... God’s-Loving-Mercy, continues to be,…”dispensed!”… Yes!... Because,…of / Jesus!... The-Son’s-Merits, are,…bar-none!... So, let us,…act,…justly / and-love, one-another: being – merciful. And, learn-to-walk,…”humbly!”… *(with-your: God)*… *(read: Micah 6: 6-8 )*… *(as – Jesus: still – does)*… Amen.

Your Friend,
Izzy!...
