And So Here I Am Again..

When will I ever learn?  I am just not meant for a photo blog.  This morning I deleted another one called Capturing Moments in Daily Life for no other reason but that it just wasn’t working.  But this one, Take No Thought for Tomorrow, is still here as though waiting for me to come back and focus on what is really important..how does my being a Christian show in my daily life?  Surely the Lord knows that much better than I do.  So here I am again, and hope that the things that happen daily have some purpose on a spiritual level.

I do love to watch the birds, and love tending to my new garden, but these things will soon pass away and what will my life on this earth matter where eternity is concerned?  I hope it matters for something, and really, it is cathartic for me to write about the sometimes crazy things that happen in this otherwise simple life.

It’s a happy  day for me when I check the stats on my children’s bible stories blog and find out that on Saturday, the day before Sunday School, some people still come to that blog even though it is old school, based on the King James and just simple stories with simple coloring pages and simple crafts.

So these are the musings of my mind, I do have some things to share but all in good time.  And for those who followed me a long time ago, I hope that you will do so again.  Now it is time for me to look for a new theme for this fresh start.

 

Why Does God Allow Sickness?

It’s my turn.. after husband has been sick for almost two weeks with the flu, I have come down with viral bronchitis.  Not the first time, it’s getting to be an annual thing.  One thing I know is that I would rather be the one going through an illness then be watching a family member go through an illness with the feeling of helplessness that brings.  My husband is recovering and I am thankful for that.

But why does God allow sickness? and what should our attitude be when we become ill? For me, I say “I am in your hands, Lord” and let the sickness go through to its natural end, whatever that may be.

Why does God allow sickness?  This question is well answered at God Questions.org, a portion follows:

The issue of sickness is always a difficult one to deal with. The key is remembering that God’s ways are higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:9). When we are suffering with a sickness, disease, or injury, we usually focus solely on our own suffering. In the midst of a trial of sickness, it is very difficult to focus on what good God might bring about as a result. Romans 8:28 reminds us that God can bring about good from any situation. Many people look back on times of sickness as times when they grew closer to God, learned to trust Him more, and/or learned how to truly value life. This is the perspective God has because He is sovereign and knows the end result.

Called to Share the Gospel, Part Two

Yesterday I wrote how my husband has purchased 250 Gospel of John booklets and has made up packages with a booklet, an energy bar and a $1.00 coin to give to people who stand on medians at stop lights panhandling.   He hasn’t been able to do it since he came down with the flu almost two weeks ago, but this morning we had to go to town so he tried again, but there was another roadblock to sharing the booklet.

As we approached the stop light where most of the packages have been given out, we saw a lady standing on the median with hat out and a sign.  We had not seen her before and looked forward to giving her the package.  But that joy quickly passed. Husband tried to give her a package before he read the sign but she refused and then we saw that the sign said that giving to panhandlers enabled them and that the local police were not in favor of it.  She told my husband that if we wanted to give we should give to the local food bank.  He told her that there was a Gospel of John in the package and she said that was good, and that it was also good that there was food in the package.  We could not tell if she was with the RCMP or if this was her own idea to have that sign.

Husband asked her why she had her hat out to which she replied, “so I can talk to people like you.”

So one day at a time.  My husband and I both believe that places and people will be provided for him to share the Gospel of John booklet.

editing to add that after talking about this, my husband has decided to take the $1.00 coin out and add another food item.  We do know that some of the people have been collecting enough money to go and feed their alcoholic addiction, so giving more food will give them something to eat and the Gospel of John is their spiritual food.

Called to Share the Gospel

I have written in a previous post that my husband and I have left the church we were attending due to emergent practices.  It has been very difficult on my husband and recently, desiring to share the gospel, he ordered 250 Gospel of John booklets and began to distribute them to people who are in need, and who stand on medians at traffic lights.  We made up a little bag of a Gospel of John, an energy bar and a $1.00 coin (called Loonie in Canada).  Since these people who are begging appear to have little, it seemed a good idea to give them something to eat as well as “feeding” them the gospel which is, of course, the most important thing.  We hope that they spend the money on more food, as we hope that they do not toss the Gospel of John book aside but read it and become convicted of their need for the Saviour.

As usual though, when you step forth in serving the Lord to spread his word, that old devil seeks to devour and this came in the form of a man whom my husband knew through this man’s occasional attendance at a morning prayer breakfast held every Saturday at the church we used to attend.  As we were driving towards a stop light, my husband saw this man standing on the median..again.  Previously he had given this man a bag with the Gospel of John, the energy bar and a $1.00 coin.  We saw that the man had been drinking, so husband just said hello, addressed him by name, and asked him how he was doing.  To which the man replied aggressively  “I know you are mocking me, get the “F” out of here”.

I can tell you that was a great shock.  And not long after that, to compound the situation, my husband came down with the flu and has been laid up for almost 2 weeks, thus preventing him from handing out any more gospel booklets in that time.

But he and I have hope that he will soon recover, and that he will be back out distributing the gospel books.

Going Back to Basics..

Today I am going back to basics, in my case basics are that I am a Christian, saved by grace through faith in what the Lord Jesus has done for me, in shedding of his precious blood and paying the  penalty for my sin.  Through his death, burial and resurrection, I have the hope that when my last breath is over, I shall be with him..

For the last few months I have been focusing on a photo blog called Living on Vancouver Island.  I do love photography but as it always did before, having a photo blog meant looking for new things every day or else resorting to posting old photos which I hated to do. And then, as it usually happens when I am focusing on things other than the Lord, changes occurred which made it impossible for me to go out to photograph every day.  Illness in the form of the flu bug entered our home and my husband has been down with it for almost 2 weeks.  Although his temperature has normalized, he is left with a bad cough and as of today, I am coughing as well.  Hoping that this is not the start of the viral bronchitis that I am prone to.  In any event, I have decided to give up my photo blog and go back to my Christian basics.  The name of the blog is Take No Thought for Tomorrow and so I will be focusing on daily life as a Christian.  In particular how do I/should I react regarding family, things around me, things in the news..

Always I am “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our (believers) faith..”

If there should be a particularly beautiful sunrise, or other beauty of God’s creation, and if I have my camera handy, I shall post the occasional photograph here but it will be to uplift the Creator, and not to focus on my photography.

I hope that you will follow my new direction.

Still Waiting

I wrote the piece below in December of 2016:

It’s been quite some time since I have posted on this blog, the reason is that husband and I have been, and still are, in limbo regarding the church we used to attend.  We left that church a year ago because of emergent practices, specifically spiritual formation,  that had entered into a bible camp that the church supported and when husband learned of these practices and brought it to the attention of the two elders at the church, he was shut down and shut out by the senior elder, and because of this, and because our financial donations were going in large part to the bible camp, he thought we had no choice but to leave.

In the last few months husband has heard from the other elder and has been having coffee with him and we hoped and have been praying that things could be worked out so that we can go back.  Each Sunday we have our own remembrance of the Lord in breaking bread and drinking the cup, and in husband’s scripture reading and prayer, but we miss being in the fellowship of the church.

And yet I hope for another miracle..  that the senior elder will approach my husband so they can work things out so that we can go back to the church.  Not that things will change at the bible camp, but that the elder will at least admit that things are not what they should be.  Should that happen, we could designate our donations that they do not go to the bible camp.

And so I continue to wait and pray..  last week there was a memorial at the church for a lady who had passed away and when we arrived at the church the senior elder was standing at reception and the look he gave husband was impossible to describe..  definitely not friendly or welcoming, but rather it seemed a guilty but challenging look..  husband offered his hand and the elder shook it..  so I continue to hope for a miracle.

With God all things shall be possible.

___________________________

Since I wrote this post things have changed.  The elder that was asking my husband out for coffee has stopped doing that.  Since the memorial when we thought that this would be a good opportunity for reconciliation, we have heard nothing from the senior elder.  Because of these things, we are pretty much convinced that we will never return to that church but at the same time, I still believe that with God all things shall be possible.  For that reason, we are still waiting..

Face to face with the cross.

a wonderful poem of encouragement.

A Call To The Remnant

When I have suffered great loss
I come face to face with the cross
Will I get down on my knees and pray
Or shall I turn and walk away?

Each day as I walk through this life
And face troubles and heartaches and strife
When the world has lost all its gloss
Then I come face to face with the cross

In the light of His glory and grace
As I behold His wonderful face
His fire burns up all of the dross
When I come face to face with the cross

So when you have fallen down
And it seems you’ve forsaken your crown
Come fall at His feet in remorse
Come face to face with the cross

His grace is sufficient for you
Honor Him in all that you do
And victory will come in due course
When you come face to face with the cross

How is a Salmon Run Like You?

seagull-salmon-eggs

It’s that time again, the yearly salmon run. We live close to the Cowichan River and during the annual salmon run, we go for a walk on the path that borders the river, with little paths here and there that go down to the water. The air is filled with the sound of the gulls that are flying all around, whether or not they are trying to get the fresh eggs, or are feeding on the dead salmon, I do not know, probably it’s both. Some of the salmon are still jumping although they are in the minority, most are near the shore swimming very slowly, soon to join their dead fellow salmon.

Seeing these salmon up close, I always find the sight to be very sad and think about their lives. Further down the river path there is a little pond where last year’s salmon babies are swimming around with not a care in the world. At some point they will enter the river and go downstream to Cowichan Bay and then on to the ocean where, if they are lucky enough to escape being eaten by a predator or caught by a fisherman, they will live until the point where they are driven to come back to the place of their birth where they struggle to go upstream, and finally die a slow death. Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die:……”

Operation Christmas Child, and How I Came to Take Part This Year

Have you ever packed a Christmas Child Shoebox?  I had never heard of it until about 2008 when my daughter-in-law packed one because the church they were attending was sponsoring the boxes.  When I saw hers I asked about it and then wanted to take part.  It was such fun shopping for a child I did not know, and when the box was filled and given over to my daughter-in-law to take to her church,  I am sure that I got as big a blessing in doing it as the unknown child got in receiving it.

When we moved to Vancouver Island and began attending the only gospel chapel in Duncan, I found out that they did not sponsor these boxes.  They chose instead to have a box to fill for the sailors on board ships that came to Chemainus BC.  Although husband and I did this for the 4 years we attended the chapel, it wasn’t the same as the Christmas Child Shoebox.

For reasons that are not necessary to go into here, we left that chapel a year ago and I didn’t think about the shoebox at all until a couple of days ago and I am convinced that the Lord was at work here as he always is, directing my path even though I didn’t realize it until after the fact.

A Call to Witness

 

Sometimes the Lord calls us to do something for someone we hardly know, by conviction through His holy Word.

Such was the case when my grandson Gabriel was less than a year old.  I had met his father’s grandmother only once, on the occasion of Gabriel’s birth, when he was still in the hospital. She was a woman who had a strong presence, and I remember when she came into the room, someone asked if she were the baby’s grandmother, to which she responded “I’m the GREAT grandmother!” She was so proud of Gabriel.

But before Gabriel was a year old, she was diagnosed with brain cancer, and her health declined very rapidly. I remember the day when my daughter told me that this woman only had a couple of days to live, how they had taken Gabriel to visit her, and she was so upset that she asked them to take him out of the room because she couldn’t bear it. It was so sad for her to know that she would never see him grow up.

Right after that I was reading my bible, the book of Ezekiel chapter 3, why I chose that chapter is surely by the grace of God. And I read the following:

Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul” Ezekiel 3:17-19

Seeing What You Want To See

wise words here.. what do you see, beauty? ugliness of this world? or both?  Reblogged from Emotional Peace.

emotionalpeace

If you want to see the beauty that is around you, you will see beauty. If you want to see the ugliness of this world you will see ugly. Yet if you really want to see the truth, then you will see both. This world around you has both love and hate, beauty and ugliness. Yet this world is temporary, and for those of us who have received Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are pilgrims only traveling through it.

Missing Blog: Problem is Fixed

Yesterday I was bemoaning the fact that Take No Thought for Tomorrow was not showing up when I wanted to re-blog a certain post..   I have to say that it was not a WordPress problem, it was my own fault.  In looking on the dashboard under “my blogs” I discovered that Take No Thought for Tomorrow was listed as “hidden”  so a quick change to “visible” and I am pleased to say that now, if I want to change sites or reblog a post, Take No Thought for Tomorrow shows up.

I’m sorry for accusing you WordPress, please accept my apology.

Grace and Restoration

God’s grace, that which is freely given to us, His unmerited favor, bestowed on those who are saved.. indeed, it is by grace we are saved through faith in the Lord Jesus, by believing what He did for us on Calvary’s cross, in shedding His precious blood for our sins. We are not saved by works, although our good works after we are saved are evidence of our salvation, but this is not the same as salvation by works. Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

But we are imperfect people, and as such, it is so easy to step away from fellowship with our heavenly Father, because even though we are saved, we still have the temptations of the evil one to face on a daily basis. And so this is how we step away:

1. Desire – our mind is the battlefield of our desires. If we court any desire that takes us out of the will of God, we are in danger of stepping away. Better to “….bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”  (2 Corinthians 10:5)

2. Decision – taking the short view of life, thinking about what we will get now, and leaving behind accountability

3. Deception – when we step away we are deceived into thinking we can do it better ourselves, surely a tool of the devil.

4. Departed – and suddenly we are away from the will of God for our lives, and there is distance between us and walking in fellowship with the Father. We are in the same position as the prodigal son was in when we took his inheritance and left on his own.

It is at this point that the subject of eternal security comes up, for there are those who say that when you step away from the Lord, you lose your salvation, but when you are saved by grace, you are made part of the body of Christ. Can you be cast out of the body? What was the outcome of the prodigal son? and what happens to us when we are out of fellowship with God?

OK WordPress, What Is Going On?

What is going on ?  In my settings I have Take No Thought for Tomorrow as my primary blog, but when I tried to reblog a post, it didn’t even show up, just my Bible Stories for Children and my Living on Vancouver Island showed up.  And when I tried to use the Switch Site option on the Admin page, still only the same two options.  So what is going on?  Is Take No Thought for Tomorrow even visible on the Reader to anyone but me?  My inquiring mind wants to know!

Reblog: Professing But not Born Again

I tried to reblog this post from Lukewarm Church but was unable to do so I am copying part of it and linking to the rest of it..  this is a subject dear to my heart and written about  better than I could.

Professing But Not Born Again

The church today is filled with people who have “made a decision for Christ” but have never been born again. They have been presented with all the logical arguments for the faith and asked to raise their hand or pray a prayer, but have never really committed their lives to Christ.

These people have been presented with a “gospel lite” that emphasizes the blessings of belief without repentance for sin. Without repentance for sin, there can be no reconciliation to God, and therefore no salvation. Our sins have separated us from Him. They are so grievous that God the Father had to sacrifice His only Son in order to make reparations and restore us to fellowship. When we preach a gospel that does not call for repentance as the first step to believing faith, then we belittle that sacrifice as though it really wasn’t necessary for Christ to go to all that trouble on our account.

The Bible says the heart is desperately wicked, that no man seeks after God, and that only when the Holy Spirit opens our hearts to receive the Word of God and confess our sins can we receive Christ (Jer 17:9, Rom 3:11,Jn 3:7) . None of us has the ability to choose Christ on our own. The Apostle Paul says no one has reason to boast before God because He chose us when we were still at war with Him and dead in our trespasses and sins (Eph 2:1-10). Dead men cannot make choices. Spiritual death cannot produce spiritual life. Spiritual life must come from the source of all life and righteousness and that is Jesus Christ (Jn 14:6).

Some people claim that they chose Jesus Christ. But Jesus says, “You did not choose me, but I chose you“(Jn 15:16). Believers have been chosen in Christ by God the Father from the foundation of the world and are a gift from the Father to the Son (Eph 1:3-8, Jn 17:6). Jesus told Nicodemas, “You must be born from above” (Jn 3:5-8) That means spiritual life does not reside in you.

The Fallacy of Seeker Friendly

 

 

The Importance of Convictions

Which do you have the most of? Convictions or Preferences? What are the beliefs that you stand on? Are they based on the Word of God? or are they based on your opinions?

An excellent example of a conviction is in the book of Daniel. There are several examples of Daniel’s convictions, this one is in Chapter 6. Daniel has been given much authority in the kingdom of Darius, by this time he is an old man. And as it will be, certain men “sought to find occasion against Daniel…but they could find no fault, forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.” (Daniel 6:4) And so a petition is drawn up stating that if anyone prays to God or man for thirty days, that person will be thrown into a den of lions.

And what was the first thing that Daniel did? “he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled down upon his knees three times a day and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.” (Daniel 6:10)

Daniel had strong conviction. Even though he had been taken away from Jerusalem a very long time ago, he continued, without interruption by the commands of man, to pray and give thanks to God. We know the rest of the story, Daniel is thrown into the den of lions, and the lions mouths are shut, and Daniel is preserved. Even King Darius said to him “Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.” (Daniel 6:16) What a testimony his life must have been.!

But sometimes beliefs are not based on the absolute truth of the bible. and sometimes we live by our preferences, not convictions. Living on preferences makes one waiver, to and fro, because they are personal opinions, not based on absolute truth.

Psalm 91 – The Lord’s Protection Over His Own

Today we who live on the Southern section of Vancouver Island await landfall of the remnants of Typhoon Songda, and do not know exactly where it will be.  It seems good to post Psalm 91 regarding the Lord’s protection over his own.  It is not time to run away (as my flight nature would like to do) but it is time to stay still, pray for His protection, and trust for whatever comes.

Psalm 91 (based on the KJV) – the Lord’s protection over His own.

1. He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2. I will say of the LORD, He is my shelter and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3, Surely he shall deliver you from the trap of the hunter, and from the deadly disease.

4. He shall cover you with his feathers, and under his wings shall you trust: his truth shall be your shield and your buckler*.

5. You shall not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day.

6. Nor for the pestilence* that walks in darkness, nor for the destruction that comes at noonday.

7. A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.

8. Only with your eyes shall you behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9. Because you have made the LORD, which is my shelter, even the most High, your dwelling place..

10. There shall no evil come upon you, neither shall any plague come near your home.

11. For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.

12. They shall bear you up in their hands, to prevent you from stumbling.

14. (The LORD speaking V14-16) Because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name.

15. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him, and honour him.

16. With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.

________________________________

This psalm speaks of the LORD’s protection over those who have trusted him for salvation. The last three verses are the LORD speaking, and He is saying that because he (that is anyone that has trusted the LORD) loves the Lord, and placed his trust in Him, the LORD will deliver him from evil. The LORD will answer those who call upon him, the LORD will be with those who believe in Him when they are in trouble, and if it be His will, that person will have long life and the LORD will show them the joy of salvation.

Some of this psalm is like a picture. The LORD is pictured as a bird who hides her babies under her wings when danger threatens. Under her wings, her babies are sheltered. And we say that the LORD is our fortress (strength) he is “my God”, that is personal, and we trust in him. The psalmist says his truth shall be our shield and buckler*. That means the Word of God, the holy bible, is God’s truth, and as we cling to its promises and teachings, it is our shield from the trials and dangers that come our way. Its truth will carry us through.

Because we trust in him he will deliver us from danger and we don’t need to be frightened by any trouble, whether by night or by day. The LORD is able to protect His own through any time of trouble. If it be His will there shall be no evil come upon us, or any sickness to our home. But we must remember that it may also be His will to take us home to him, but in this psalm, it is about the LORD’s divine protection.

The LORD will send his angels to be our protection in all our ways, they will keep us from danger, standing guard over us, even though we cannot see them. We just never know how many ways the angels have protected us from danger. Perhaps we can think about dangerous times, and maybe we wonder how we ever got through. It was because the angels, who are ministering spirits, protected us and carried us through.

Because Christians love the Lord He will deliver them, because they have known the name of the LORD. When the Christians prays and calls upon the LORD, he will be with him in time of trouble, he will deliver him and honour him. The Christian will be satisfied with long life and the LORD will show him his salvation. (long life could mean everlasting life as we know that not all Christians live a long earthly life. Also, in eternity we will know all things regarding our salvation.)

words noted with a * are described below from Noah Websters 1828 dictionary:

V4 *buckler – was composed of wood, or wickers woven together, covered with skin or leather, fortified with plates of brass or other metal and worn on the left arm. On the middle was a prominence, very useful in causing stones and darts to glance off.
V7 *pestilence – causing contagious disease; 2. mischievous, destructive, 3. troublesome, making disturbance

Morning Thunder Clouds with Psalm 77:14, 17-18

morning-thunder-clouds

The second storm that was predicted passed through the night and it is still raining this morning, but unlike the first storm of Wednesday past, this storm had heavier rain, stronger winds and early this morning, thunder and lightning which are my favorite.  One clap of thunder made our home tremble, “thank you Lord for the thunder that is so rare in this valley.”.  Thankfully the wind was not strong enough to cause us to lose our power.

Daylight is still an hour away as I write this, but the photo above was taken on a similar morning in 2012 when we had thunder later that day.

Psalm 77:14,17-18 “Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.  The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound:….The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.”

A Joyful Moment

joyful-moment

Today, according to the weather statement, we are expecting 3 wind and rain storms over the next few days.  The past few days have been glorious sunshine but it remains to be seen just what will materialize.  While we are waiting  I am posting this joyful moment taken last Autumn at Quamichan Lake.  I don’t know this little child, but she was having such fun feeding the seagulls.  Usually it would be a mob of ducks and not seagulls.  There is a rainbow faintly seen towards the mountains and the rainbow always makes me think of a little Sunday School song that I always sang with my granddaughter when she was about this age.

“Whenever you see a rainbow, whenever you see a rainbow, whenever you see a rainbow, remember God loves you.”
