Thou preparest a table before me

of the LORD for ever."

Just an image Prompt: "3 He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."
(Psalm 23:3-4, KJV)

The way we walk and the paths upon which we walk
demonstrate a great deal about the lives we live.
How can our walking come into agreement with the One,
Who determines the important direction of our lives?

I have always felt that it is of utmost importance to walk justly before the Lord. An old cliche says that "Christians are the only Bible many sinners will ever read. I have found this to be true. If I act like the world then the world does not see Jesus. They see the world. If I act like Jesus they see Jesus and they know there is something different about me. The difference attracts them.

Write about Starless nights.

First of all I want to thank whoever nominated Space Blog for a Quill Award. The group appreciates it and I love you for it.

Starless nights can be good if it's winter because that means the temperature is usually above freezing. Otherwise, the haze would not be there are the stars would be clear.

Prompt: "1 (A Psalm of David.)
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters."
(Psalm 23:1-2, KJV)

These verses indicate, that God has the role of Shepherd
and His redeemed ones (aka Christians) have the role of sheep.
What needs is the Lord meeting in verses one and two?

I'm still not fully awake! The mail has been fouled up around here due to the weather-related power outages. The doctor I see for narcolepsy has been closed due to the pandemic. She normally mails my narcolepsy medicine. So the prescription is stuck someplace in limbo and so am I. Therefore I hope I make sense today.

I think what David is saying is that believers are like sheep to God. Sheep are not very intelligent animals. They are pretty helpless. God takes care of us just as a shepherd takes care of sheep. The first need God meets is providing us life and all we need to sustain it. The second need is salvation and spiritual protection.

Just an image Prompt: "2 And Jesus called a little child unto him,
and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, Verily I say unto you,
Except ye be converted,
and become as little children,
ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself
as this little child,
the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven."
(Matthew 18:2-4, KJV)

How does an adult come to Jesus as a little child?

I think what Jesus is saying here is that we are to be completely obedient,, completely trusting, and completely open to Him. Children are like sponges when they are little. They are flexible and pliable. They believe everything and question nothing. They are wide open for whatever life throws at them and would even trust a rattlesnake because they know no better. They take everything at face value. I think this is what Jesus is saying we are to do with Him. We are to take Him at face value and be completely open and even gullible with Him. We must trust Him no matter what and be willing to go where He leads and value what He values. We must lay aside the walls and defenses we build as adults and become clean slates for Him to mark on.

A crazy cat has an issue
#2216850 by Lornda
What kind of ""cat or pet stories" do you have?

I have never really been a cat person. Cats are to territorial and don't seem to communicate as well as dogs. I have had several dogs though. My favorite dogs are Pomeranians. I had a female Pom named Sandy who I could have sworn could almost speak! Her actions let you know that she was capable of analyzing situations and reaching logical conclusions. One time for instance, I was arguing with my wife over something trivial. Sandy knew I was wrong. I laid down on the bed and she jumped up on my chest and gave me a look that would have wilted dandelions! I knew she was scolding me. I apologized to my wife and kissed my wife. Sandy again pounced on me and began licking my face. I think she would have smiled if she could. It got to the point where I wanted to make the dog proud of me!

Image for BCOF members to put in their blogs Prompt: “I used to try to decide which was the worst month of the year. In the winter I would choose February. I had it figured out that the reason God made February short a few days was because he knew that by the time people came to the end of it they would die if they had to stand one more cold day.” ― Katherine Paterson

Use this quote to inspire your entry today."

I read something on social media last night that I immediately stole. "2020 is the year Hell took over. 2021 is the year Hell froze over."

I think February 2021 is the month in which Hell froze over.

Blog City image small Prompt: "If you were given a bag of groceries and three hours to create a signature dish for one million would you accept the challenge? What marvelous creation would you create? Would you get stressed or take it in stride?"

I would have to be like some of the guys in the peer support group I run each week and say "I need more information."

I usually give a role play assignment and instead of doing the role play, they want to analyze the situation and know all the details instead of simply role-playing. In this case they would ask "What kind of groceries? What ethnic group of people?" Etc.

I was informed last night that my publisher was doing a special promotion for me. I was chosen Author of the Week and given a big page. Then they decided that since I was helping them out by making referrals and advertising for them that they wanted to give me a special promo page for my upcoming book. Other publicity is in the works as well. The link to the new page is https://www.readersmagnet.club/who-is-chris-breva-marvin-d-schrebe-aka-chris-bre.... Come and check it out.

Just an image Matthew 4:1-11 is the demonstration
of Jesus dealing with Satan's temptations
after forty days of fasting in the wilderness.

What can we learn from Jesus' example,
that will help us in our daily battle with sin
and Satan, the author of sin.

Satan is always prowling looking for ways to take us down. He wants to kill our spirituality. It is not a matter of "if" he attacks. It is a matter f "when" because he will attack. He is waiting for the right opportunity and he will send temptation our way right when he knows we will fall for it. The only way to be prepared for the inevitable attack is to stay close to Jesus, stay in the word, and stay near Christians.

Image #2235060 over display limit. -?- Prompt: If Eternity with Jesus is the Lord's chosen position for every Christian, then is failure actually an option for any part of His Bride? We may grieve over things we have been unable to accomplish in this life, but if Eternity is eternal, then is it possible for any of us to fail to do what the Lord has Sovereignly-chosen for our talents to accomplish?

I don't think it is possible to fail at anything God has for us to do. We may fall short but God never falls short. He always accomplishes His will. The only way we fall short is sin. I think God knows what sins we will commit and plans around them. After all, He knows the future.

Apocrypha  (E)
We've turned our backs on the secrets of universe... but they await our return.
#1575418 by 🌓 HuntersMoon


Write about this in your Blog entry today.

The Apocrypha I am familiar with are the deutero-canonical books in the Catholic Bible. While I understand that the primary reason these books were not included in the canon accepted by most Protestant churches, I do find them to be fascinating. The secrets of the universe however are contained in the sixty-six books of the canon. I need nothing more.

Image #2235060 over display limit. -?- Jeremiah 2:31 says "And you, O genneration, behold the word of the Lord. Have I been a wilderness to Israel, or a land of thick darkness? Why then do my people say "We are free, we will come and go no more."

Explain this passage.

I think God is telling Israel, and thus us, that He is still sovereign. He is God. He has not hidden anything from us. He has said that if we do action A will get result B. If we do action C we will get result D. He has not hidden anything and he has not changed. All too often people think God changes His attitudes just because we change ours. God is not politically correct. What He wrote thousands of years ago still applies today. We need to wake up.

 Sad moments about valentine  (E)
Cupid don't touch singles
#2244294 by Z.shams


Write about Valentines Day.

Cupid doesn't touch anybody because Cupid doesn't exist. He's an idol. However love touches everybody. Love is not this feel good feeling we get when we are around somebody. That is an endorphin rush and exposure to them over time will make that go away as the brain grows accustomed to getting that same rush from them. Love on the other hand is a commitment yo do the next right thing for the next right reason. It is an action word.

Image #1997652 over display limit. -?- "Prompt: Use the following words in your blog entry: splinter, wind, love, crystal, celebrate, happy, and wish."

I got a splinter under my nail. I could not see to dig it out because the wind kept blowing snow in my face. The crystal flakes blinded me. I finally did celebrate success however and what a relief it was. I was very happy with the relief. I wish the soreness would go away.

What do you think? In your opinion, is mutual weirdness love?"

I think so. We usually fall in love with people who share our interests. It makes no difference how weird those interests are. For example, a lot of the writers here on WDC are into "shrinking/growth fetishes. personally I don't see it but they love it and they are attracted to one another. To each his own.

Image #2235060 over display limit. -?- Today I am going to go back to Proverbs for a bit. Explain Proverbs 14:14.

The Proverb says that the perverse get what their ways deserve. We have to ask what the ways of the perverse deserve. Many of the things we as Christians do are also perverse so what do we deserve? I pray the perverse never get what they deserve. Their ways deserve hell. However I pray nobody goes to hell. I even pray that God is merciful to Satan and the fallen angels. It is a shame for anybody to go to hell. So I pray the perverse do not get what their ways deserve. However the reality is that the perverse will get what they deserve if they do not repent and what they deserve is punishment.

The proverb goes on to say that the good will receive what their deeds deserve, which means that the good will receive good. The good will be rewarded.

Image #2235060 over display limit. -?- Prompt: "What are you praying for?"

My prayers usually consist of prayers of praise and thank you as opposed to prayers of request. I feel God already knows my needs and does not need me to continually pester Him about them. In fact, God knows my needs much better than I do. So instead of going to Him with a long list of requests and "honey-dos", I approach Him with thanksgiving and praise. The only time I make any requests to God is on Sunday morning when I am getting ready to preach. Then I ask His help in surrendering myself completely to Holy Spirit and to use my mouth to get His message across. I seldom pray about a physical need for I know He has already saw the need and is meeting it in His way and His time.

God So Loves The World  (E)
Poem written for prompt of God’s love, based on John 3:16
#2244031 by Marvelous Friend
she writes about a subject that is near and dear to my heart: Jesus!

Read this poem and give some feedback.

I love the way she took each line of John 3:16 and explained it in poetic format. Another form of expressing John 3:16 I have become impressed with was an acrostic I saw on social media that used letters in certain words to spell out "Valentine." Since Jesus is the ultimate expression of love this seems appropriate to me.
