Safe and Sound

RedDoorblog

Dear friend, guard Clear Thinking and Common Sense with your life; 
   don't for a minute lose sight of them.
They'll keep your soul alive and well, 
   they'll keep you fit and attractive.
You'll travel safely, 
   you'll neither tire nor trip.
You'll take afternoon naps without a worry, 
   you'll enjoy a good night's sleep.
No need to panic over alarms or surprises, 
   or predictions that doomsday's just around the corner,
Because God will be right there with you; 
   he'll keep you safe and sound. 

Proverbs 3   The Message


Grace

2 Corinthians 12

  1. He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
    He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
    To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
    To multiplied trials He multiplies peace.
  2. When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
    When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
    When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
    Our Father’s full giving is only begun.
  3. Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
    Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
    Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
    The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.
  4. His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
    His power no boundary known unto men;
    For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
    He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

He Giveth More Grace

The Armor

Ephesians 6 fix

Finally, be strong in the Lord and

in the strength of his might. 

 Put on the whole armor of God,

that you may be able to stand

against the schemes of the devil.

  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood,

but against the rulers, against the authorities,

against the cosmic powers over 

this present darkness,

against the spiritual forces of evil 

in the heavenly places.

  Therefore take up the whole armor of God,

that you may be able to withstand in the evil day,

and having done all, to stand firm. 

 Stand therefore, having fastened on

the belt of truth,

and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

 and,as shoes for your feet, having put on

the readiness given by the gospel of peace.

  In all circumstances take up the shield of faith,

with which you can extinguish all the

flaming darts of the evil one; 

 and take the helmet of salvation, and 

the sword of the Spirit,

which is the word of God, 

 praying at all times in the Spirit, 

with all prayer and supplication.

Ephesians 6


Love

Loveclipped

no matter what I say, what I believe,

and what I do,

I'm bankrupt without love. 

Love never gives up. 
   Love cares more for others than for self. 
   Love doesn't want what it doesn't have. 
   Love doesn't strut, 
   Doesn't have a swelled head, 
   Doesn't force itself on others, 
   Isn't always "me first," 
   Doesn't fly off the handle, 
   Doesn't keep score of the sins of others, 
   Doesn't revel when others grovel, 
   Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, 
   Puts up with anything, 
   Trusts God always, 
   Always looks for the best, 
   Never looks back, 
   But keeps going to the end.

1 Corinthians 13
