“…but My lovingkindness will not be removed from you…”

Isaiah 54:10 "For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, but My loving kindness will not be removed from you, and my covenant of peace will not be shaken," says the Lord who has compassion on you. When we are bitterly betrayed, cruelly rejected, separated by barriers by those we love, where do we go? There is only one love that is unfluctuating, steadfast, and enduring throughout eternity. It is of the God who wrote a book of love letters for His children. How tragic to live in this world never knowing how deeply you are loved by God. The only way you will know is to listen to His heart for you through His Word, the Bible. Allow Him to give you your identity and security we all long for. No one can fill the voids you were created with, but the one who formed you in your mother’s womb. He is intimately acquainted with all your ways. Lovingkindness ,peace, and compassion are what He offers you this morning through Isaiah 54:10. Delve into His heart through His love letters to you. I guarantee you will be filled and left unwanting. In His love. Teresa Roberts Masterpiece Fitness 276-237-6680 Every woman loves to receive flowers.

“…is producing for us an eternal weight of glory…”

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 "For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. Most folks know that precious metals are produced by a refining fire. We find a parallel in scripture finding God Himself to be the great supreme alchemist! He takes the fiery trials we encounter in this life and produces in us eternal weight of glory that far outweighs them all. We must keep ourselves aligned in obedience to His Word during these times. It means waiting and trusting in His love for us. As we yield our will to His, we are transformed into His likeness! We must take our eyes off this world and other people during these times of affliction, and focus on eternity. What price is to great to know when we see Him face to face that He may see a reflection of Himself?" Desire the rewards that are eternal and never ages far outweighing the fleeting rewards of the flesh which are only temporal! In His love.

“The earth is full of Your loving kindness!”

Psalm 119:64 "The earth is full of Your loving kindness, O Lord; teach me Your statutes." Nothing brings me more pleasure than relishing in the loving kindness of my Lord! Escaping out of the demands of this world and immersing myself in His creation is one of the most effective ways I know of doing that. It is a battle to stay more aware of His Presence than the clamors of this temporal world. My weapon of choice this weekend was a highly anticipated return to the Appalachian Trail backpacking. I come off of the mountain ridges mesmerized by His loving kindness. My heart cries with the Psalmist, "Teach me Your statutes!" I want to be like the wonderful God of creation who is so full of loving kindness in all of His ways. May I encourage you to take time in life today to escape into more of His loving kindness? Do so in whatever way that causes you to experience a deeper awareness of His loving kindness He has surrounded you with on this earth. In His love. Teresa Roberts Masterpiece Fitness 276-237-6680 I saw and felt His loving kindness as I trudged along mountain ridges with my dog, Lady Godiva, and was provided with just the right seat for resting by a tree He uniquely designed for the weary travelers. I loved climbing all the different...

“…so the Lord surrounds His people…”

Those who trust in the Lord are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever." I am fortunate to live in a home surrounded by the mountains. I feel safely tucked inside the "Eagle’s Nest" surrounded by God’s Presence in an earthly home I know He provided for me and many others to enjoy. Yesterday some clients and I participated in a race in the western North Carolina mountains. I was very aware of being surrounded by God’s Presence during the race, and before and after. I was so blessed listening to Julie, a dear friend and client, telling of His Presence surrounding her and hearing Him speak to her as she met the challenges she faced while running. I ended up finishing the race with a young man who was trusting in the Lord with his life also, and we knew the Lord surrounded us with His Presence as we encouraged one another in Him. How wonderful it is to live life trusting in the Lord no matter where you are and no matter what you are doing or going through. There is nothing greater in life than not only being surrounded by His Presence, but having His Holy Spirit inside of you guiding and giving strength and peace....

“But as for me, the nearness of God is my good.”

Psalm 73:28 "But as for me, the nearness of God is my good. I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works." Having lived six decades of life now, i am so thankful to proclaim with David the nearness of God is my good in life. Nothing compares to experiencing the nearness of my God as I continually take refuge in Him. His love and faithfulness is beyond description. I must tell of His works. My heart and mind is full to overflowing with love for the love of my life. I cannot keep quite about the great things He has done for all mankind! Oh, that we would have eyes to see, and ears to hear, and hearts to receive His unfailing love in this forever failing world with forever failing people such as myself. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8) In His love.
