Psalm 19

I’m reading each morning in the One Year Bible this year. Psalm 19 was included in the daily reading this week on January 23.ps. !9

Take a look at the first four verses in the NKJV and AMPC version.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.

Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.

There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.

Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.    Psalm 19:1-4 NKJV


The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork.

 Day after day pours forth speech, and night after night shows forth knowledge.

 There is no speech nor spoken word [from the stars]; their voice is not heard.

 Yet their voice [in evidence] goes out through all the earth, their sayings to the end of the world.      Psalm 19:1-4 AMPC


Don’t you think it is amazing that God is speaking to us each day everywhere in the world we live in?

Look anywhere and He is to be found if you want to see. Are you looking?

Elizabeth Barrett Browning says it so simply.

earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with god, but only he who sees takes off his shoes;the rest sit round a

Morning Manna

2016-04-08_10.47.59

While reading my Bible and having coffee early in the morning, I see the birds getting their breakfast of seeds from the ground and feeder. I love supplying seed and watching the birds come each day. It brings me true pleasure to watch them arrive, feed and linger awhile. Add heading

I often think about the comparison of the bird’s morning feeding with the way I start my mornings. What a delightful thought to see myself similar to a little bird coming to spend time with my heavenly Father. My food, morning manna, is His Word and He is always there. He is always present, watching, providing, caring and even enjoying my coming to Him.

Come early in the morning and start your day with the King!

Living in His Constant Care

Corrie ten Boom 4The following is a little story that Corrie ten Boom told to share about God’s care for us. This story is found in her book  Each New Day.

     A little girl cried because her very old doll was broken. Her father said, “Bring me your doll.” Then he repaired it. Why did that grown up man give his time to mend such a worthless ugly doll? He saw the doll through the eyes of the little one, because he loved his little daughter. So God sees your problems through your eyes because He loves you.

Father, what a joy it is to know that we are Your children and live within Your constant care.    ~ Corrie ten Boom

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.                       The righteous cry out and the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.     The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart And saves such as have a contrite spirit.       – Psalm 34:15,17-18

Hurt, sadness, pain, confusion… bring it all to the Lord.                                                            Visit Corrie ten Boom page for more about her ♥                                             Corrie ten Boom 4
