A reflection on those who have disabilities

Reflections for the day

Philippians 3:12-14

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

“If you want that splendid power in prayer, you must remain in loving, living, lasting, conscious, practical, abiding union with the Lord Jesus Christ.”

C. H. Spurgeon 

A reflection on those that have disabilities

Heavenly Father,

We are thankful that you are  able to guide all Mankind to see a way forward in a way that is clear that those that have what is described as a disability are able to make a success with a life.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that the games known as the Paralympic Games are ones that have been able to uphold many who have made a success of a life, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that the Paralympic Games are ones that have been able to uphold many who have made a success of a life in a way that has shown that those who have a disability can be as successful as those who do not have a disability.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there will be a time in the future when your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, will judge both the quick and the dead, and that this judgement will be for all of Mankind. We are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all Mankind to be at one with you, Our Heavenly Father, and in order for all Mankind to be at one with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in order for all Mankind to be at one with your Holy Spirit, there is a need to separate a self from all that is sinful.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all Mankind to separate a self from all that is sinful that there is a need to know, and there is a need to understand, what is less than desirable.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many references in your Scriptures which are ones that describe what is commonly known as a sin, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that the many references that there are in your Scriptures, are ones that decree that there will be a separation from a dearly departed loved one if a self is unable to separate from all that is sinful.

Heavenly Father, a separation from a dearly departed loved one would mean a time of sorrow, and a time of despair, and a time of helplessness.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for Mankind to separate a self from all that is sinful there is a need to have a courage, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for Mankind to separate a self from all that is sinful there is a need to have a determination, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for Mankind to separate a self from all that is sinful there is a need to be able to endure.

Heavenly Father, there are many who are able to see in a way that is clear that those who have a disability, and those who have been a competitor of the games known as the Paralympic Games, are ones who have a courage, and are ones who have a determination, and are ones who are able to endure.

Heavenly Father, many  will desire at a time in the future to be your obedient servant, and many will desire at a time in the future to lay down a life for you. Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there will be a reluctance, at times, to be your obedient servant, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there will be a reluctance, at times, to be ready to do your will.  

Heavenly Father, we ask you to help all Mankind to address all areas in a life of a self that are ones that are of a nature that is sinful, and we ask you to guide a self to say sorry for an error of a way, and we ask you to guide a self to make a change in a life that is necessary, in order for a self to be at one with you, and we ask you to guide a self to make a change in a life that is necessary, in order for a self to be at one with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we ask you to guide a self to make a change in a life that is necessary, in order for a self to be at one with your Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, much in a life is one that can be described as sinful, and much in your world is one that can be described as sinful, and many in your world is likely to do what is described as turn a back on you, and many will do what is described as remain in sin.

Heavenly Father, there will be a time in the future when each and every one of us will be made accountable for a life led in your world, and it will be at this time that we will be judged by your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. The judgement by your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is likely to be one that will occur at a time when we leave this Earthly place, and is one that is likely to be one that will separate all who are at one with you, from all who have turned a back on you.

Heavenly Father, many desire to be at one with you but know that there are a number of difficulties that will need to be overcome. Many desire to be at one with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, but know that there are a number of difficulties that will need to be overcome. Many desire to be at one with your Holy Spirit but know that there are a number of difficulties that will need to be overcome.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many will have seen that a competitor of the Paralympic games has done what is described as overcome a number of difficulties, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many have been able to succeed in what has been done, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many have been uplifted by the games known as the Paralympic Games, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many have been uplifted by the games known as the Olympic Games, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a self is able to be uplifted at a time when a self is at one with you.

Heavenly Father, in order for all to be uplifted in the way that many have been uplifted by the Paralympic Games, and by the Olympic Games, there is a need to draw closer to you, and there is need to place a worry, and there is a need to place a concern with you.

Heavenly Father, many desire to be uplifted in the way that many have been uplifted by the Paralympic Games, and by the Olympic Games, and in order to be uplifted in a way that can be described as meaningful, there is a need to leave behind all that is sinful, and there is a need to turn to you.

Heavenly Father, we uphold all that has been said to yourself, Our Heavenly Father, in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, and in the name of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the way, and who is the truth, and who is the life, and is the way to you, and we uphold all that has been said in the name of your Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on honesty

Reflections for The day

Proverbs 12:22

The Lord detests lying lips,
but he delights in people who are trustworthy.

2 Corinthians 8:21

For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man.

Romans 12:3

Humble Service in the Body of Christ

 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.

“I never prayed sincerely and earnestly for anything but it came at some time; no matter at how distant a day, somehow, in some shape, probably the least I would have devised, it came.” Adoniram Judson

A reflection on honesty

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate. Thou hath sent into thou world thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and in order to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thou for thou mightiness.

Heavenly Father, thou hath created thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things known to all of Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by all of Mankind. Thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and thou art in possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge thou love for all of Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of honesty. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life that is described as one that is honest, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life that is described as one that was obedient to thou. We acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to live a life that is honest, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to live a life that is obedient to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that if a self is less than honest there is a difficulty, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that, at times, relates to a family, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that, at times, relates to a friend, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that, at times, relates to a work colleague. We are able to see in a way that is clear that if a self is less than honest in a word that is passed, and if a self is less than honest in a comment that is made, and if a self is less than honest in a deed, a self will feel subjected to a pain. We are able to see in a way that is clear that if a self is less than honest there will be a breakdown in a relationship, and if a self is less than honest there will be a separation from thou, always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is one that is led daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to reflect thou truth that is of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, a truth in all that is said,  and we ask thou to guide a self to reflect thou truth that is of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, a truth in all that is done always. We acknowledge that in order to be truthful in all that is said, and in order to be truthful in all that is done, that there is a need to focus on thou, always.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide a self to remain silent at a time that is necessary, and we ask thou to guide a self to choose a word carefully at all times.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is much said in the media about the nature of honesty, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that all of Mankind do experience a situation where a self is less than honest, and that, at times, there is what is described as a half-truth spoken, and that, at times, there is what is described as an omission of a truth spoken.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that a self will reflect upon a need to be honest always, and we hope and we pray that a self will turn to thou always, and we hope and we pray that a self will say sorry for the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will make the changes in a life that is necessary, in order to show a repentance.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is Our Saviour and who is Our Redeemer, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.


A reflection on separation

Reflections for the day

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in
Christ Jesus our Lord.

How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls! These are souls who have the power to bless, for they intercede with sanctified hearts. They never begin their daily time of intercessory prayer without having first brought to the cross all that is unholy in their lives, so that their old self can be crucified there with Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb. –Basilea Schlink

A reflection on separation

Heavenly Father,

It is at this time during Holy Week that we reflect upon the time that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, spent in the garden of Gethsemane and it is at this time in Holy Week that we reflect upon thou  death  of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, upon the cross.

We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach us that death is a separation and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach us that death of the physical body is a separation of the soul from the body. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach us that there are many references to death in thou Scriptures and in thou Scriptures a physical death is described as one of sleep.

We are able to see that Mankind hath, since time began, suffered what is called a separation of the soul from thou, and we are able to see that this separation of the soul from thou is one that is due to a sinful way.

We are able to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died a physical death on the cross, and we are able to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, gave a life in order for Mankind  to find thou way to thou.

We are able to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed a power and a mightiness over death, and we are able to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed a power and a mightiness over sin, by rising from the dead on the third day following a crucifixion; and that the rising from the dead on the third day following a crucifixion is commonly known as thou resurrection.

We are able to see that during thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ’s time in the garden of Gethsemane that thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ took upon thouself the sins of Mankind, and we are able to see that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, felt a separation from thou. We are able to see that for thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ a separation from thou meant something more agonising than the physical death thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, had yet to encounter.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the sinful way of Man and it is at this time we reflect upon those that are separated from thou because of sin.

Heavenly Father, there are many influences in thou world which can lead Man astray and some of these influences are ones that are seen in the media.

Heavenly Father, we believe that many of the world’s issues can be resolved by thou by placing before Mankind opportunities to address issues that are of concern, and we hope and we pray that Mankind will make the right choice to resolve  issues of concern which are ones that cause a separation from thou.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that opportunities are placed before those who are responsible for what can be viewed by many on the internet, and we hope and we pray that opportunities are placed before those who are responsible for what can be viewed by many on television, and we hope and we pray that opportunities are placed before those who are responsible for what can be viewed by many at the cinema, and we hope and we pray that opportunities are placed before those who are responsible for what can be viewed by many in the privacy of our homes.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will reflect carefully upon the tragic death and the events of the death of Jacqueline Bartlam, and we hope and we pray that many will be able to see a way forward clearly in addressing all issues of a concern that will mean a separation from thou.

Heavenly Father, thou art a loving Father and thou art a compassionate Father, and thou art with us always. Many desire to draw closer to thou, many desire to always be in thou presence and many are thankful that through thou grace many are able to find thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thou all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within us, and who dwells amongst us, and who advocates for us, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.
