See you at 6:45

And you’ll know you are alive

We’ll read the Word

And we’ll Know we’ve Heard

Together we will know

How to DO HIS WORD

 

2/19/21 Purim

If you want your soul to thrive

Meet us online at 6:45

We’re keeping God’s commandments to the very end

That is the message we want to send

Start in Genesis it is the first

We learned how God created the earth

To get a glimpse of heaven

Read Revelation

Everything in between is certainly for you

God will tell you just what to do.

So be sure you DO IT!

 

2/26/21 Purim

With brothers and sisters we read God’s word

Loving each other as we have heard

Every day we will walk in His ways

And keep His commandments all of our days

Together…

 

As One in Messiah

3/5/21

Yeshua is our Shepherd, and we are His sheep

In His Word He promised

Our souls to keep

If we make the choice

To listen to His voice

And not listen to any other.

Shabbat Shalom

 

3/12/21

As we have heard from the Prophets of old

How God loves Israel we are told

So awesome it is that we can know it

He sent His Son to show it

So, we read together that we can show Him

Together…

That we love Him!

 

3/14/21

It may be a happy new year

For the last one I won’t shed a tear

A new beginning, I can see

With God a happy one it will be

 

3/20/21

In the Psalms God said He will give His beloved peaceful sleep,

All His promises He always will keep

When you lay your head down tonight

Sleep peacefully till the morning light.

 

Undated

We gather together from near and far

Some by plane and some by car

We come to keep Passover for this year

And Feast of Unleavened Bread is almost here

In one accord we honor Him

Together

 

4/9/21 Week 1 of 7 to count before the Feast of Weeks

Shabbat Shalom to everyone,

It starts at the setting of the sun,

At the beginning of this special day,

To read in His Word and learn more of His way.

Even though we are far apart,

With our computers we can start,

Rejoicing Together!

 

4/16/21 Week 2 of 7 to count before the Feast of Weeks

As we make this seven week journey again this year,

We are reminded how God made it very clear,

To Keep his commandments that he wrote all alone,

With His own finger He wrote them on tables of stone.

Now we keep them with our whole hearts because by Yeshua’s blood we are atoned.

And in the letter of Acts when God’s power came down,

On the Feast of Weeks, it was heard all over town.

God never changes; He is always the same,

So, what will we do with this Power in His Name?

Together…

 

4/24/2021 Week 3 of 7 to count before the Feast of Weeks

Last night as I was thinking of the last few days, and the beautiful flowers I had planted, how in all the work, and the pleasure of it, only by the creation of God could I enjoy any of it.

Each flower and plant has its own unique beauty, and the variety is endless.

Who but our God, the mighty Creator, could have thought to give His children this wonderful gift.

When I look around me and see His handiwork, I think of Matthew 6 how the lilies of the field are more beautiful than Solomon in all his array.

Since I cannot make a flower or a tree, or even a rose petal, I thank my God that He can!

 

4/30/2021 Week 4 of 7 to count before the Feast of Weeks

Another Shabbat and online we will meet,

And we thank God that our fellowship is sweet.

We freshen up our minds with the washing of the Word,

To begin a new day with what we have heard.

Together…

 

5/8/2021 Week 5 of 7 to count before the Feast of Weeks

We read in God’s Word about the miracles He performed,

 Because of them many people were reformed,

 God is the same today and He will touch our lives

 As David said in the Psalms that His Word revives.

 In the gospels Yeshua said “If you only believe”,

 Then because of His Word we surely can receive…

 His Miracles

 

 5/15/2021: 6th Sabbath of the 7 we are to count to the Feast of Weeks

When thoughts begin to roll around in your head,

Remember in II Corinthians 10 where long ago it was said,

The good ones you keep and the others you cast down,

Because if you don’t you could cause God to frown.

Think on those things that are clean and pure,

Then you will be pleasing to God for sure.

So I think, that I’ll think thoughts of God’s Word,

So I think, you’ll think thoughts of His Word you have heard!

It’s not hard, just do it!

 

5/21/2021

Week 7 of the 7 Sabbaths we are to count

Last Week we learned:

SET:

Be immovable in what you know to be the truth of God’s Word.

PREPARE:

Make sure you have on God’s armor and you will be prepared for anything the enemy throws at you.

SEEK:

Seek God with all your heart and you will be found by Him. 

BE MINDFUL: 

All decisions are made in the mind so decide to keep His commandments and live.

FORGET NOT YEHOVAH YOUR GOD:

Everything He does and has done for us is for our good always.

Don’t forget Him and He won’t forget you.

 

5/28/21

Feast of Weeks Acrostic, a poem 

Following God’s feast days

Expecting His power from on high

Allowing our hearts to be filled with His love

Sharing the time with each other

Trusting Him to do what He says

 

Offering our lives for His service

Filling us with His Holy Spirit

 

Wheat is the Harvest during this season

Each week we looked forward to this time

Entering into a time of refreshing

Keeping each Sabbath until the seventh

Seeking His guidance to “Bring in the Sheaves”

 

Endure - June 5, 2021 

Enduring to the end in a biblical way 

Is learning God’s Word and living it every day. 

Yeshua said His Holy Spirit would be our guide 

If in His Word we completely abide. 

He said in this world we would have tribulation 

He also said to be of good cheer and that’s good information. 

Because He overcame the world and so can we, 

He is our example and through His eyes we see. 

Romans 8:38 & 39 says: 

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, or angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, 

which is in Yeshua Messiah our Lord.”

 

June 11, 2021

It is another new moon

It seems to have come so soon.

That little sliver of silver up in the sky,

Is so important for us to know why,

God lets us know when an old month ends

And a brand-new month begins.

So, rejoice and be happy that we are alive,

For it’s by His Grace that we can survive.

 

The Sabbath - June 19, 2021

 On this Sabbath day as we gather together,

No matter whether it’s sunny or stormy weather

We delight in His presence as the commandments we keep,

As we read in His Word, His mercy and blessings we seek.

We give Him honor and glory and His praises we sing,

In harmony we offer our hearts, our lives, everything.

Genesis 2 is where the Sabbath was created

It is a fact that it will never be outdated.

The Sabbath – a day of joy and peace!

 

From the past - 11.19.2015 Louise Psalm

You alone are the Mighty Creator

You alone have made Heaven and Earth

You alone deserve all the Glory

In You alone do I put my trust

 

The Heavens declare Your Glory

The sun and moon are at Your command

The stars and planets you put in their place

And in Your image, You created man

 

The seventh day You ended Your work

You rested from all You had done

You blessed it and made it a Holy day

To be remembered by everyone who obeys Your word

Important things I learned during prayer and fasting

Ephesians, chapter 1

Verse 3: Yeshua has blessed me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Yeshua

Verse 4: He chose me

Verse 5: He adopted me

Verse 7: I am redeemed through His blood

Verse 7: I am forgiven of my past sins by His grace

Verse 14: I have an inheritance

Verse 17:  The Father will give me the spirit of wisdom, and revelation in the knowledge of Him.

Verse 18: The eyes of my understanding being enlightened…

 

7.10.2021

This world really is not my home, I’m just passing through it.

My treasures are stored in heaven where everything is new.

My Father is the richest in the universe.  In heaven I don’t even need a purse!

I don’t need a credit card - Yeshua paid my debt in full when He died and rose.  Now He sits in Heaven on the right hand of the Father.

He said, if I love Him, keep His commandments.  I do that gladly because I do love Him.

When you think of these words it makes the “things” of this world unimportant.

When I do see my Savior Yeshua I will fall at His feet and thank Him forever.

I will have eternity to do so!

 

July 16, 2021

At One In Messiah Congregation some of us are young and some are old,

There are some in between, but all blended together in one fold.

We are all seeking to please our God all our days,

Reading through His word and learning to walk in His ways.

We joyfully keep His feast as He has instructed long ago,

Gathering together with good food, good music and love for each other we show.

We remember to keep His Sabbaths in commandment number four,

Yeshua said if we love Him we will keep all His commandments and then God will open Heaven’s door.

We will enter in and worship Him forever more!

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.

Revelation 12:17 … which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Yeshua the Messiah.

 

July 23, 2021 - While attending my garden J

Have you ever wondered why God made bugs?

They are everywhere, in your house and in your coffee mugs.

When you are outside and don’t wear socks, they will snack on your ankle,

With a bumble bee I don’t want to tangle.

When you go in your garden they feast on your arms,

Unless you wear long sleeves and gloves then they’ll do you no harm.

Surely God has a reason so we must endure,

If you could ask a bird, they would tell you for sure

Bugs are their breakfast, lunch, and dinner,

Without them they would be much thinner.

God in His infinite wisdom and enduring love,

Surely will not allow bugs in heaven above!

 

 

Louise Writing July 30, 2021

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Let’s make a list of these things.

Whatsoever things are:

·       True – conforming to reality or fact; not false

·       Honest – honorable in principles, intentions, and actions

·       Just – guided by truth, reason, justice, and fairness

·       Pure – clear; untainted; free from contaminates; free from blemishes

·       Lovely – delightful; highly pleasing

·       Of good report – good reputation; a good statement or announcement

·       Virtue – behavior showing high moral standards

·       Praise – the act of expressing approval or admiration

With all the ungodly things going on in this world today, it is more important than ever to apply this verse.

Selah

 

August 6, 2021

We had a lot of rain today, it is important, that is so,

It is essential for the trees, flowers, and gardens to grow,

When it rains it causes the creeks and streams to flow,

God only makes it rain to water His earth we know.

There is another kind of water that Yeshua talked about in His word.

He told about the living water which our ears have heard,

If your soul is thirsty and dry,

Listen to Yeshua, there is an abundant supply.

Yeshua told the woman at the well she would never thirst anymore,

If we drink freely, then like her we won’t be thirsty as before.

Drink freely One In Messiah

 

No Night There - August 13, 2021

In the book of Revelation,

It tells us there will be no night in heaven.

Even as a child I never liked the night,

I was much happier when I had a light.

With God there is no difference between night and day,

When I go to be with Him, I can surely say,

He is the light there can be no darkness there.

In God’s new earth there will be light everywhere.

I’ll have a new body and perfect eyesight,

Being in His presence I’ll praise Him with all my might.

And be so thankful there is no night!

 

August 20, 2021

I Corinthians 12:14 says “For the body is not one member but many.”

As I was pondering on this verse, this is what came to mind:

Surely, we are thankful that each member of One In Messiah is an important part of our congregation, making up the body of Messiah, each one with their talents and abilities.

This is especially evident when we gather together during the feasts and Holy Days.

I think you all will agree that together we make up a loving and caring body, pleasing to our Heavenly Father, by the blood of our Messiah!

 

August 27, 2021

God planted me in Hohenwald a city that’s small,

There are no fancy shops or even a shopping mall,

But when you bloom where you’re planted that doesn’t matter at all.

The folks here are friendly, and some have grown dear.

I must sow the good seed of God’s Word, that’s very clear.

Sprinkling the good seed everywhere that I can,

Some plant, some water that is God’s plan.

God gives the increase when it falls on good ground.

When one soul repents and joins the Israel of God, there is heard in heaven a joyful sound.

Keep sowing the good seed One In Messiah!

 

September 3, 2021

 

There is a song that goes like this:

I have peace like a river.

I have joy like a fountain.

I have love like the ocean.

I lived near the Mississippi river at one time and I can say it is a BIG river.

That’s a lot of PEACE when you consider the analogy.

We have all seen big, beautiful fountains in different places and how the water just keeps flowing.

Remember, the JOY of the Yehovah is our strength,

So let the joy keep flowing.

We all know how vast the ocean is, and out God has LOVE like the ocean, and we should be the same toward our brothers and sisters.

Peace, Joy, Love = One In Messiah,

From His Word.

Important Things I learned From Ephesians 1

 

Verse 3:   Yeshua has blessed me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places

Verse 4:   He chose me

Verse 5:   He adopted me

Verse 7:   I am redeemed through His blood

                 I am forgiven of my past sins by His grace

Verse 14: I have an inheritance

Verse 18: The eyes of my understanding are being enlightened

It will bless you to read the whole chapter and think on it.  In other words – SELAH!

 

A Day of Atonement

L oving God with all our hearts, minds and souls

E xcited that one day we will be with God forever

S ukkots covered with branches representing Yeshua as the Branch

 

 October 1, 2021

 

The days of the Feast of Tabernacles are finished,

But the joy, peace, and praises have not diminished.

Being together for those days was a gift from above,

It brought joy, laughter, and an abundance of love.

We increased our faith by reading God’s word,

We built our succoth by what we heard,

Remembering that one day we will live forever in glory,

But while we are here, we can tell this wonderful story,

          From the greatest to the least

it's all about the meaning of this Feast!

 

October 8, 2021

 

It’s a new month of God a new moon to see,

A new month filled with blessings for you and me

A time of joy and gladness for each new day,

With praise and thankful hearts that Yeshua has made the way.

That one month, ha Ethanim, He will come with a trumpet and a shout and say,

“Come my children, Your new home awaits”,

Then we will arrive at Heaven’s open gates.

We loved Him and kept His commandments, every one,

Some of us may go sooner if our life on earth is done.

But one day we will all be together in the presence of the SON!

Who bought us and paid our debt, the Victory He has won!

(Oh, and remember there is no night there so we can always see)

 

 Oct.15, 2021

After we read Revelation, I realized how many times God was worshipped.  These are wonderful examples of how we can also worship.  Saying…….

Revelation

4:8 “… saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.”

4:11 “saying, You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou have created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

5:12 “… saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.”

5:13 “… saying, blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever.”

7:10 “… saying, Salvation to our God which sits upon the throne and unto the Lamb

7:12 “… saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God forever and ever.  Amen.”

11:17 “… saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which are, and was, and are to come; because thou have taken to thee thy great power, and has reigned.”

 14:7 “… saying, with a loud voice Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come:  and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”

15:3 & 4 “… sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.  Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name?

For you only are holy:  for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

These are examples of specific ways God was praised.  

We surely can follow these examples and bless our God by the fruit of our lips.

 

 

Louise Writing October 22, 2021

Reflections on Galatians 5: 22 & 23

The righteous bear fruit and the fruit of the Spirit is:

          Love

          Joy

          Peace

          Longsuffering (patience)

          Gentleness

          Goodness

          Faith

          Meekness (strength under control)

          Temperance (self-control)

Such good fruit, so let’s bear some today!

 

God’s Fall Season - 10.29.2021

This is God’s beautiful time of the year called Fall,

The leaves are changing to vivid colors in the trees so tall,

The Colorful leaves of yellow, orange, and red,

Are a sure sign the trees are preparing to go to bed.

Who told the trees to display such beauty in this season?

Of course, God did, and He created them for this reason.

In the brisk fall breezes the leaves float and dance around,

And after a time, they all fall to the ground.

Goldenrod also blooms in the fall and makes some sniffle & sneeze,

But we won’t think about that, just focus on the trees!

Thank and Praise Our God for this beautiful season!

 

Louise Writing 11.12.2021

I will praise my Father with my song,

I will gladly praise Him all day long.

I will praise Him in the morning light.

I will praise Him in the noon day bright,

I will praise Him when the sun goes down at night.

I will praise Him and from yesterday’s problems I will not borrow,

I will praise Him in joy and gladness if He gives me another tomorrow.

Praise ye Yehovah!

 

The Gift - 11/26/2021

As I sit here with my pen ready to write,

I’m searching my mind with all my might.

What can I say that would encourage and uplift?

Of course, it is about God and His perfect gift!

Yes, it is Yeshua the Messiah, and it’s very clear,

When we lift our voice to Him, He will always hear.

He will keep us in perfect peace when our minds stay on Him,

Then the things going on in this world will become very dim.

He has overcome the world and so will we!

(Be cheerful and joyful!)

 

12/3/2021

Today I will make this short and sweet,

No Facebook for me, nor do I Tweet.

I have a direct line to my Father above,

Who tells me in His Word of His great love.

No satellite needed, nor fiber optic cable,

Just open His word and you will see that He is able,

To hear His children, anywhere, anytime, who keep His Word.

Isn’t that the best news you have ever heard!

 

Louise Writing 12.11.2021

As God’s people, what is our purpose on the earth?

Learning to please God, as parents teach their children from birth,

To keep His commandments according to His Word,

To delight in His statutes, and not forget what we heard.

It’s an honor and privilege to know this today,

That we can please our God and do things His way,

When we delight in Him, He delights in us!

 

Follow 12.17.2021

Yeshua said:

Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.

My sheep hear my voice and I know them, and they follow me.

If any man serve me, let him follow me.

Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Yeshua saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and He said unto him, follow Me. And he left all, rose up, and followed Him.

When He calls, will you follow?

 

My Deliverer – 12/24/2021

Again, I say, this world is not my home. Every day we see more and more evil from those in authority.  They want to take away our freedom, even to keep us from serving our God.

Of course, God’s Word is our guide and comfort.

He is our Deliverer!  We can take encouragement from David as he wrote in the Psalms:

Psalm 31:15:  My times are in Thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from him that persecute me.

Psalm 43:1:  Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.

Psalm 59:1:  Deliver me from my enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.  

Psalm 119:134:  Deliver me from the oppression of man:  so will I keep thy precepts.

Also, 2 Timothy 4:18:  And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto His heavenly kingdom:  to whom be glory for ever and ever.  Amen

Be encouraged! God will deliver us!

 

Louise’s writings for 2022 are below

 

God Remembers – 12/31/2021  - for the Sabbath 1/1/2022

God remembered Noah when he was in the ark,

On Mt. Ararat, when the waters abated, the ark He did park.

God remembered Rachel and she did conceive,

And she had Joseph who in his Godly dreams he believed.

God gave Moses the commandments one day,

And said to remember the Sabbath to keep it holy God’s way.

Hannah cried out for God, to remember her, and her prayer was heard,

And God gave her Samuel, a great prophet, we read about in His Word.

I’m reminded that God knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust,

If we keep His commandments, we remember that He is Holy and Just.

He remembers us!

 

God’s Benefits Jan.7, 2022 for Sabbath Jan. 8, 2022

 

Psalm 103:2 Bless the Yehovah, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:

          He forgives our sins

          He heals all our diseases

          He redeems our life from destruction

          He crowns us with loving kindness and tender mercies

He satisfies our mouth with good things; so that our youth is renewed like the eagles

He executes righteousness and judgement for all that are oppressed

He is slow to anger

He pities them that fear Him

He gave us salvation

He gave us Yeshua

He gave us eternal life through Yeshua’s blood

He gave us His Spirit

He gave us His word

And the list could go on and on.  Think of the things you can add to the list of God’s benefits.

We are truly blessed One In Messiah!

 

Jan.14, 2022 for Sabbath the 15th

When I sat down, I didn’t have a clue what to write.

I began to search my mind with all my might.

Then I remembered David who wrote so many wonderful Psalms,

How every night I listen to them and how sweetly they calm.

He tells how God gives His children peaceful sleep,

I fall asleep so peacefully, I don’t need to count sheep.

When I awake in the morning, I read another to start my day,

God sends His angels to protect me because that’s His way.

I’m thankful David so beautifully expressed about God’s mighty love.

No matter what happens in this world, I’ll keep my mind on God above.

He will keep me in perfect peace because my mind is stayed on Him!

 

Jan. 21, 2022

When the storms of life are raging, I know someone who can calm the sea. 

Even if the storm still rages, He is there beside you to keep you from harm.

In that still small voice, He whispers “never fear, I am here.

There is peace in His presence, and He said He would never leave you nor forsake you.

You may not see the shore on the other side, but He is your lifeboat, and you will make it there.

Your life will be changed forever, but the strength and courage you gain will make you a worthy sailor.

Since God is the captain of the ship, the pain and heartache will eventually be washed away. 

The calm will come, and it will be like a soft balmy breeze by the sea.

May the Spirit of the Living God be your Comforter!

 

Shalom All
