Welcome to Noonday Devotion

I do hope you enjoy what I share. Today is special, because under my devotion are two wonderful poems.

Under those are some wonderful links, including one to a missionary family in Greece. Please click on these wonderful links.

Please pass these messages on to all your friends and groups. If you wish to print them out and share them with your church, then again please do.

LET'S GET THE WORD OUT INTO THE WORLD

AMEN

God bless you

Keith

Noonday Devotion by Keith

GOD'S LOVE EMBRACES ALL


2 Timothy 1

16 May the Lord grant [His] mercy to the family of Onesiphorus, for he often showed me kindness and ministered to my needs [comforting and reviving and bracing me like fresh air]! He was not ashamed of my chains and imprisonment [for Christ's sake].

17 No, rather when he reached Rome, he searched diligently and eagerly for me and found me.

This believer is a wonderful example to us.

Have you ever had your name included in a book?

In various parts of the New Testament.. Paul describes numerous people.. they are priceless friends to him. What a great privilege to have your name mentioned in the Book of Books?

This brother refreshed Paul.. like fresh air. He was like a breath of fresh air to Paul.

How many times have you acted like this brother?

Have you shown kindness to another brother? vs 16

Have you ministered to another brother or sister's needs? vs 16

Have you acted like a breath of fresh air to another brother or sister? vs 16

Have you sought out another brother who is in trouble?.. diligently seeking him/her out vs 17

This is love in action. What makes the church different.. their love one for another.. AMEN

The Holy Spirit is called the COMFORTER for good reason.. he is the PARACLETE.. one who comes alongside.

If we are truly filled with him, then we will come alongside our fellow brothers and sisters, it is more than how are you on Sunday morning and then move on to your friends. It is time to get personal with people, to take time, to get out of our comfort zones.. amen

This brother was not ashamed of being associated with Paul.. he was in prison, but this brother was so happy to be associated with Paul.. he identified with Paul. What would we have done in his situation?. Would we have gone to see Paul or kept our distance?

When we are around our brethren.. are we are a breath of sweet fresh air or do we carry the stench of gossip and backbiting?

Believer, if you are gossiping and backbiting your fellow Christian's, the Lord is telling you to stop it .. NOW. Because it smells in God's nostrils.. amen

Let us act like this brother did, to ALL the fellowship of Faith

God Bless you

Keith



Poem 1 by Susan Hughes

"For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
he bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does the LORD withhold
from those who walk uprightly." (Psalm 84:11)

YOU ARE MY PROVIDER O LORD
MY VERY PRESENT HELP IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES
YOU PROMISE YOU WILL NEVER LEAVE ME NOR FORSAKE ME
AND YOU DON'T!

YOU REMAIN BY MY SIDE
IN TIMES OF DOUBT
IN TIMES OF FEAR
IN TIMES OF QUESTIONING WHEN A LOVED ONE IS TAKEN
IN TIMES OF HOMESICKNESS
IN TIMES OF SADNESS YOU ARE THERE TO WIPE AWAY MY TEARS
TO REASSURE ME THAT TIME WILL HEAL
LOVE FROM OTHERS WILL HEAL

YOU SHOW ME THAT CARING FOR AND FROM OTHERS
WILL LIFT THE PAIN OF MISSING LOVED ONES WHEN
BEING SO FAR AWAY HERE IN THIS FOREIGN LAND.

YOU PROVIDE OUR EVERY NEED O LORD
THANKSGIVING IS A WORD AS NATURAL AS BREATHING
TO ONE WHO LOVES YOU WITH THEIR WHOLE HEART, MIND, SOUL AND STRENGTH
THE STRENGTH OF THAT LOVE CARRIES US THROUGH
THE POWER OF THAT LOVE KEEPS US GOING FORWARD FROM DAY TO DAY
THE GLORY OF YOUR LOVE CAN BE SEEN ALL AROUND
TO THOSE WHO HAVE CRYSTAL CLEAR SIGHT THROUGH THE CERTAINTY
OF THEIR BELIEF IN YOU.

HOW CAN WE NOT BELIEVE?
YOU ARE IN THE AIR THAT WE BREATHE
THE STARS GENTLY TWINKLING
THE MOON IN ITS EERIE BEAUTY EACH NIGHT
THE SUN IN ITS RADIANCE LIGHTING UP YOUR SKIES EACH DAY
YOU ARE IN THE SMILES ON OUR FACES
IN THE LOVE WE SHOW FOR EACH OTHER
IN THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO LOVE LIKE YOU O LORD.

HELP US THIS DAY AND EVERY DAY O LORD
TO EMBRACE YOU MORE
TO LOVE YOU MORE
TO BE ALL THAT WE CAN BE
NOT BECAUSE OF MAN BUT BECAUSE IN DOING SO WE HONOR YOU
AND ULTIMATELY OURSELVES

TO BE CONTENT WITH WHAT WE HAVE
TO BE RID OF THE EXTRANEOUS SO THAT OUR MINDS ARE UNCLUTTERED
SO THAT WE EXPERIENCE FREEDOM IN IT'S TRUEST FORM
GIVE US MORE DESIRE, MORE AND MORE HUNGER TO
SEEK YOU O LORD
NOT TO HOLD ANY PART OF US BACK IN FEAR THAT IF WE SURRENDER
WE LOSE CONTROL
HELP US TO BE CONSTANT IN OUR SURRENDER OF OUR WHOLE SELVES
INTO YOUR EVER LOVING ARMS.

THANK YOU LORD!

AMEN!


Poem 2 by Karen Crouse
Here We Are

Here we are in your presence
Lifting holy hands to You
Here we are praising Jesus
For the things He's brought us through.

I don't have the words to tell You how I feel,
I just don't know what I can say
I'm not worthy to speak Your Holy Name,
Yet You tell me You love me just the same.

Here we are in Your presence
Lifting holy hands to You
Here we are praising Jesus
For the things He's brought us through.

I never thought that it could be this way,
And I never thought I'd be the one,
But You found me dying in my sin.
And You looked at me with love that took me in.

Here we are in Your presence
Lifting holy hands to You
Here we are praising Jesus
For the things He's brought us through.
