Sabbath Keeping


"...but I gave them this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in obedience to all I command you, that it may go well with you. But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward."

"Disobedience and assurance 
don't sleep in the same bed."

"God does not will He should follow what man initiated. Other than following God's direction, we have no right to direct him. We have no ability to offer save to obey God's guidance."
 ~ Watchman Nee ~

"Faith never knows where it is being led
but it loves and knows the One who is leading."

"Every great person has first learned how to obey, whom to obey,
and when to obey."  ~ William A. Ward ~

"Only he who believes is obedient and only he who is obedient believes." ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer ~

"If you look up into His face and say, "Yes, Lord, whatever it costs", at that moment He'll flood your life with His presence and power."  ~ Alan Redpath ~

"God has no more precious gift to a church or an age than a man who lives as an embodiment of His will and inspires those around Him with the faith of what grace can do." ~ Andrew Murray ~

"Nine-tenths of the difficulties are overcome when our hearts are ready to do the Lord's will, whatever it may be. When one is truly in this state, it is usually but a little way to the knowledge of what His will is." ~ George Mueller ~

"We might come closer to balancing the budget if all of us lived closer to the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule."
~ Ronald Reagan ~

"Wherever you are, be all there. Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God." ~ Jim Elliot ~

"Obedience is the key to real faith."

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,
shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; 
but he that doeth the will of my 
Father which is in heaven."

Keep in prayer... ~ Bonnie Jean ~ Mary ~ Ronnie ~ Jim ~ Anita ~ Diana and her Hero ~ Patty and her daughters ~ Nancy and Julie ~ Sandra ~

  3. WONDERFUL! HELPFUL! What a rich combination of sentences, who advise the right way! I have some intensive meditations about obedience to the Lord's will also especially in this time, so it fits perfect to my situation here and now.

    Dear Sandra, have a good time carried by the always best and most wise will of the Lover! - - -

  6. Hi Diana, you/yours have been in my thoughts and prayers...am putting you on Sunday's prayer list.

    Grace, you're welcome...hugs.

    Hi Dori, God is faithful, gracious and merciful, isn't He. In a world gone mad, He is always love.

    Hi Anita, Begg is good and so are all the others, imo. So many wise people from whom to learn.

    Hi ---, another brain cell just went to sleep. For the life of me, cannot remember your name over there at Down on the Farm and I humbly apologize. It's been a rough morning that was preceded by a rough week. Your prayers are most welcome and needed (no doubt in your mind, is there? -grin-).

Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
