The Bible says:
The eyes of the Lord are in every place, watching the evil and the good.
Proverbs 15:3
Watch out for Joy stealers, gossip, criticism, complaining, faultfinding, and negative judgemental attitudes.

God’s eyes are going to and fro……
He sees all the evil and He sees all the good.
Fret not thyself because of evil doers.
“They will get there’s “.
The Lord shall fight for you; and ye shall hold your peace.

The Bible says:
Pray without ceasing.
1 Thessalonians 5:17
Prayer is like:
A pitcher to carry the water of Life
A Chemist that turns all life to good
Incense with which to Worship God
A bow to carry the arrow of your needs
The Porter to watch the door of our lips
The guard to keep the fort of our hearts
The hilt of the sword to defend our hands
A master workman who accomplishes things
A barometer to show our spiritual condition
The chariot to hold our petitions
The Spirit being the wheels thereof
The tuning of an instrument to get us in tune with heavens melody.
Author unknown
Look at all the benefits of prayer.

Turn away …… from what is stealing your joy and confidence.
Turn away ……..from darkness to the marvellous light.
Quit staring at your problems.
Look to Jesus who is the Author and Finisher of our Faith.

Sufficient Grace
The Bible says:
My Grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

We are to grow so that we know that God is greater than anything that we might face in this world.
