January Judiciousness (Joyful Blessings of Encouragement)


January’s Bible Verse: Psalm 28:7

                        “The Lord is my strength and my shield;my heart trusted in him,

and I am helped:therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;and with my

song will I praise him.”    KJV

January’s Poem: Being Joyful Always

Always be joyful in the Lord,

Show that He is loved and adored;

Sing praise songs and lift up your voice,

  Always in the Lord to rejoice

 I say rejoice and be joyful,  

Within the Lord who is trustful;

Remember the Lord is at hand,

Who will help and does understand.

   Relax and do not ever fear,

For the Lord our God is near;

  Never worry of anything,

As long as to the cross you cling.

Show how considerate you are,

Your light shines brighter than a star,

 While being humble and kind,

During stressful times  ease their mind.

Then think of the power of prayer,

With the Lord what you  can share;

    Everything you can impart,

That has been brewing in your heart.

 Let Him know of what you need,

For  your life to help you succeed,

  Give thanks while you request,

What will help you do your best.

 Always remember to instill,

         Asking if it is His will;

     If it were for the will you own,

Then your words will just stand alone.

Keep your thoughts whatever is right,

    That  is fair and true in His sight;

  So practice what you have been taught,

Then God gives peace in what you sought.

                           ~Richard Newton Sherrer

January’s Quote:

“The hope that God  has provided for you is not merely a

wish. Neither is it dependent on other people,

possessions, or circumstances for it’s validity.Instead,

biblical hope is an application of your faith that supplies

a confident expectation in God’s fulfillment of His

promises. Coupled with faith and love,hope is part of

the abiding characteristics in a believer’s life.” 

~John C. Broger
