Memory Monday & Early Morning Orange

Merry Memory Monday to you. I'm so glad you have received and are enjoying your cards. They are a gift to you all, no charge. I do pray that the Word of God richly dwells in you.

This week I tucked James 5:16 in my heart:

James 5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. James 5:16

As I thought about this verse, in my flesh, I don't desire to confess to "one another"; but with the confession and prayer, God says there is healing. His Word is always true. My sins aren't an exception, praise His glorious Name! In the last part of the verse, a choice is available to me, to us, with the word can. I have the choice to spend time in prayer. I can pray, or I can _________. (Fill in the blank). To me, the Lord is speaking that it is a choice. He is not making me spend time in effective prayer; but after tucking this verse in my heart, I feel Him tugging at mine to spend more time in effective prayer.

This next week, I'm going to tuck Romans 8:1 in my heart:

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

His Word is so good!

I have a few photos I snapped of God's magnificent handiwork in the sky as I let Lilly Belle out. Our God is amazing - His handiwork is amazing!

The whole earth is full of His glory!

Hi Lora-
Whenever I read the passage, the part that usually stems out is the portion about the effective prayer of a righteous man\woman but never really concentrate much on the confessing part. I must say it is not easy to confess my sins to another. Of course, I don't mind confessing to the Lord because after all he knows it all already. Thanks for highlighting that.

God bless

Myriam
