Timeless

Dingle, Ireland

The place where God and earth and eternity intersect is timelessness and true beauty.

That place can be anywhere where your eyes are open, really open.

It is where your ears hear birds and wind, where your feet itch to keep moving.

Timelessness is the place of the heart, the yearning of the soul, the Voice of God.

Blessings, Lisa

Soul Health

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” – 3 John 2

“You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” – C.S. Lewis

“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?” – Mark 8:36

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.” – Psalm 23:1-3

“For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” – 1 Peter 2:25

May God bless your soul with good health today, and may the peace of Christ guard your heart and mind. Blessings, Lisa

Hold the Line

These rocks beside the Atlantic Ocean are holding the line. The fury of the winds, rains, and storms push hard against these cliffs in Donegal. There might be erosion, but the cliffs at Horn Head stay.

Events in this world are also pushing hard, attempting to topple us, to cause us to compromise, to collapse us into the sea. The storm of spiritual warfare is actively raging. But our anchor holds. Jesus Christ will hold the line. And He holds us. Praise God. He is the Victor.

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” – Hebrews 10:23

“They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience.” – 1 Timothy 3:9

“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith, be men of courage; be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13

“It is the Lord your God you must follow, and Him you must revere. Keep His commands and obey Him; serve Him and hold fast to Him.” – Deuteronomy 13:4

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” – Hebrews 6:19a

Hold the line. Blessings, Lisa

Thoughtful Thursday

As you listen to this amazing classic by Bing Crosby, use each sheep in the picture to represent one of your blessings. And yes, I realize we are now counting sheep and blessings. Sorry, Bing. Wink, wink. I pray that you run out of sheep to count, and feel the peace and joy of Christ today. Blessings, Lisa
