We want to go out "Like Elijah!"
Then it came about as
they were going along &
talking, that behold, there
appeared a chariot of fire
& horses of fire which
separated the two of
them, & Elijah went up by
a whirlwind to heaven.
2 Kings 2:11
|Go Out Like Elijah
With a whirlwind to fuel my
chariot of fire
And when I look back on the
It'll be like a candlelight in

|APPLESAUCE ON A PAPER PLATE!
I have loved and been blessed with Doris' daily devotions and with her blessings -
want to share them with you. Enjoy her enlightment of God's Word!
By Doris Bookhart
I'm familiar with the power of words since so many of mine blow up in my
face. Instead of apples of gold in frames of silver as described in
Proverbs, I end up with applesauce on a paper plate! A lot of that could be
avoided if I just used fewer of them. (I can just hear all the "amens" now!).
I read about a blind beggar who sat with a sign stating "I'm blind, please
help," but people walked by ignoring him. A well dressed young woman
stopped and, instead of throwing coins on his pallet, she changed his sign to
read "It's a beautiful day and I can't see it." When she returned at the
end of the day, the beggar's pallet was covered with money and she
explained to him that she changed his sign to read the same, but in
different, more positive, words.
Every world religion has a teaching similar to what we call The Golden
Rule. The difference is that all of them begin with a negative approach, like
don't treat people unkindly because then they will treat you unkindly and bad
things will happen to you. Jesus conveys the same message, but in different,
more positive words. Jesus' positive teaching was to treat people the same
way we would like them to treat us. There is power in words because they
can either build up or destroy, which is even more reason we need to make
sure what few words we use are positive.
"Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any
thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let
thy words be few (Ecclesiastes 5:2)."
Love, Doris (& Melody!)
