Our Heart...

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would like to comment and say that I am thankful to those who realize how important it is to support our military people, and our veterans.

I feel I must say that I feel sad seeing how few people actually wore a poppy.  And, some of them did not even wear it the way it is meant to be worn.  Over a person's heart.

In some cases, I saw people wear them on straps, belts, hats and more.  While I was glad to see people at least wearing a poppy, it was disheartening to me to realize that people didn't really seem to care on the reflection they were sending out, silently.

Oh well.  So be it!  That's life.

Hopefully, the feelings they had in their hearts reflected to God, better than the way the wearing of their poppies reflected to me, and possibly to others.

Now, I suppose I should move forward with today's LwL entry.  It's been a while since I let you know what I've been up to!

Last Thursday evening, I attended Bible study.  As always, it proved to be a time of faithful teaching, fun, fellowship and... food.

Yes, it is a time of learning.  However, with the group that meets at Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church (WEBC), we have a good time together, while doing so. 

Learning, laughing, talking and praying are only a few of the things we do.  The fellowship time we have is truly enjoyable.  And, so are the snacks that people bring.

I signed up to bring some, for the last Bible study day of the month.  Knowing that I also wanted to bring treats to the Saturday class, a couple of days after the Bible study class, I decided it would be a good time for me to do this.

One thing I must say I am happy about, is the love and heart-warming welcome everyone shares.

After all, this is what God wants from us.  He wants us to love one another.

And, He knows the condition of our heart! 

Just as He told us in 1 John 3:20, " For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things."

God is so much greater than we could ever dream of being.

He knows the end from the beginning.  He knows what we think, what we do and the decisions we will make, even before we've made them.

And yet, whether decisions are good or not so good, He still loves us.

Yes, He loves us, His children.  His children, who have shown the world that they need to trust in/believe upon Christ, in order to become one of His children.  Or, in other words, become saved.

God told us that He will prepare a banquet for us, in the presence of our enemies.  Will you be at mine?

Or, will I see you in heaven, because you are my brother or sister in the Lord?

What must a person do to become saved?  Believe upon the Lord, Jesus Christ and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).


Until next time...
