          This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night,that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous,and then thou shalt have good success -Joshua 1: 8

    He Lifted Me

    Jesus stretched forth His hand and caught him.” Matthew 14:31

    Jesus was near by to help Peter in one of his lowest ebbs of life. He cried, "Master save me". Jesus did not hesitate but reached down and lifted Peter up when he sank low. Peter than with the disciples declared," This is God's Son for sure." There was no more doubt. They had watched the whole thing. They worshipped God.
    God is always close by when we need Him. In our lowest valleys he will reach down his hand and pull you out of the depts. of despair. He will hear the faintest cry when his children cry out to him.

    Somebody came and lifted me
    Out of my sin and misery
    Somebody came, O who could it be,
    Who could it be but Jesus?

    -Fred P. Morris, 1907

    Wed, Jun 2nd - 8:32AM


    As I faced my Maker at the last Judgement, I knelt
    before the Lord along with the other souls. Before
    each of us laid our lives, like the squares of a
    quilt, in many piles. An Angel sat before each of
    us sewing our quilt squares together into a tapestry
    that is our life. But, as my Angel took each piece
    of cloth off the pile, I noticed how ragged and
    empty each of my squares was. They were filled with
    giant holes. Each square was labeled with a part of
    my life that had been difficult, the challenges and
    temptations I was faced with in everyday life. I
    saw hardships that I had endured, which were the
    largest holes of all.

    I glanced around me. Nobody else had such squares.
    Other than a tiny hole here and there, the other
    tapestries were filled with rich color and the bright
    hues of worldly fortune. I gazed upon my own life
    and was disheartened. My Angel was sewing the ragged
    pieces of cloth together, threadbare and empty, like
    binding air. Finally the time came when each life was
    to be displayed, held up to the light, the scrutiny of
    truth. The others rose, each in turn, holding up their
    tapestries. So filled their lives had been.

    My Angel looked upon me, and nodded for me to rise.
    My gaze dropped to the ground in shame. I hadn't had
    all the earthly fortunes. I had love in my life, and
    laughter. But there had also been trials of illness
    and death, and false accusations that took from me
    my world as I knew it. I had to start over many times.
    I often struggled with the temptation to quit, only to
    somehow muster the strength to pick up and begin again.
    I had spent many nights on my knees in prayer, asking
    for help and guidance in my life. I had often been
    held up to ridicule, which I endured painfully; each
    time offering it up to the Father in hopes that I would
    not melt within my skin beneath the judgmental gaze of
    those who unfairly judged me. And now, I had to face
    the truth. My life was what it was, and I had to
    accept it for what it had been.

    I rose and slowly lifted the combined squares of my
    life to the light. An awe-filled gasp filled the air.
    I gazed around at the others who stared at me with
    eyes wide. Then, I looked upon the tapestry before
    me. Light flooded the many holes, creating an image.
    The face of Christ. Then our Lord stood before me,
    with warmth and love in His eyes. He said,
    "Every time you gave over your life to Me, it became
    My life, My hardships, and My struggles. Each point
    of light in your life is when you stepped aside and
    let Me shine through, until there was more of Me
    than there was of you.

    May all our quilts be threadbare and worn, allowing
    Christ to shine through.


    Cast your cares upon the Lord, for he cares about you. - I Peter 5:7

    My soul finds rest in God alone: My salvation comes from Him. - Psalms 62:1

    The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning. . .-Lamentations 3:22-23
