This Morning's Walk...

Food, Feasts, and Fun!
Several years ago I did a post entitled
which had to do with Jesus' ride on a donkey.
Palm Sunday is less than two weeks away,
and we often read this story at this time.
But today I want to talk about a different donkey story.
This one is about Balaam, the prophet, who had an encounter with a donkey.
You may recall the story from
where Balaam stubbornly insists on going his own way
but is stopped by a talking donkey.
In studying further about Balaam in the Bible,
I was curious how God's words of blessing could come out of his mouth at one time,
and then how he could be spoken of so badly in other references.
2 Peter 2:15-16 NLT - says Balaam loved to earn money by wrong doing.
Jude 1: 11 - 13 says he deceived people for money.
Revelation 2:14 says he taught Balak how to trick Israel to sin!
He did this by making sin, sex and idol worship look attractive!
He lured the Israelites with Food, Feasts, and Fun!
And apparently Balak paid him good money for doing this!
The consequences were grave - 24,000 people lost their lives because of this.
What can I learn from this?
Money can affect judgment!
I must guard my own heart that I not be deceived -
not only by money, but by others words or ideas!
2 Corinthians 11:14 says that Satan can disguise himself
as an angel of light.
Paul the Apostle warns us about this in Galatians 1:8,
and says these heavy words:
"Let God's curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you."
I guess we need to heed Solomon's words:
"Guard your heart above all else,
for it determines the course of your life"
Thanks for taking time to drop by.

My husband and I were recently on a program
from our church called
"What's in Your Cup?"
I hope you enjoy it!

Wrens are such unique little creatures!
to see some of my wren photos and learn more about them!
This is a "Yellow bellied Sapsucker".
He's a pretty hard one to catch with the camera,
and even harder to portray with a paintbrush!
Watching the birds fascinates me.
Spending time painting them relaxes me...
...Much more than watching the news these days!
May the God of Hope
fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust in Him
during these perilous times!
I am reminding myself today that
Jesus said that if God takes care of the birds,
He will surely take care of us!

about "Prophetic Dreams"...
"If I only had a weapon"
The "Fight or Flight Syndrome" kicked in!!!
Maybe we can't sing together in church at this time,
but that's no reason not to sing!
May you have JOY in your heart today
as you lift your voice in praise and
SING! SING! SING!
