Tha' Believin' Heart, 6th in a February series on matters of tha' heart

I believed that my Daddy could do anythin’. I had great faith in knowin’ that he would keep our family safe. I especially admired his creative way of fixin’ things. He knew more ways ta’ use duct tape than anyone else I know. When tha’ screen door got cracked, he took one piece of tape and put it from top ta’ bottom on one side. Then he took another piece ‘n did tha’ same thing on tha’ other side. Oh, ‘n I’ll never forget that torn lamp shade in tha’ livin’ room. Yep, duct tape ta' tha' rescue. My sister 'n I thought it was tacky, but I believed that Daddy knew best.

Tha' Troubled Heart 5th in a February series on matters of tha' heart


Mamma told me that when Daddy was fightin’ in WWII, her heart was troubled not knowin’ what was happnin’ ‘r if he was ok. She ‘n Daddy shared great faith in God. They knew that even when their hearts were uncertain, He would take care of ‘em. And if it was His will, they’d be together again.

Durin’ tha’ last supper, Jesus was with His disciples. He knew what was before Him. His disciples were troubled ‘cause they didn’t understand ‘bout Jesus’ death. Jesus gave ‘em comfort. He encouraged ‘em ta’ believe in Him as they believed in God. Ta’ walk by faith ‘n not by sight.

John 14:1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.”

Lord, help us ta’ have strength ‘n faith ta’ believe in ya’ in good times ‘n bad. Ya’ gave us your life so we can have salvation ‘n eternal life. Thank ya’ Lord! In tha’ name of Jesus, amen.

Things ‘ta think ‘bout:

1.      Is your heart troubled?

2.      Are ya’ walkin’ by faith?

Would love for ya’ ta’ leave a comment! Do ya’ have any prayer requests? I’d love ta’ pray for ya’! Don't forget ta' pray for others!

Take Heart: 1st in Series of Looking at Matters of Tha' Heart

Tha’ Heart That Judges

Mamma always said, “Don’t judge a book by its cover!” Tha’ same thing can be said ‘bout judgin’ others. I remember when a new family moved next door. Tha’ girl, Betty Sue, always bragged ‘bout how much money they spent. From tha’ way she talked, it sounded like they had all kinds of money.

She’d say, this cost $10.95 plus tax. That cost $14.99 plus tax. Every time she said tha’ price, she’d say ‘plus tax’. It got on my nerves after awhile. One day I saw her in tha’ yard. I went over ta’ say hello, ‘n she invited me ta’ go in her house. Everythin’ was very nice, but they didn’t have anythin’ that looked like it costs a lot of money. Come to find out, tha’ place they lived before didn’t have tax on clothes or anythin’. Betty Sue thought that since they were payin’ tax they were spendin’ a lot of money. So, she wasn’t braggin’ at lot like I thought she was.

Matthew 7:1-2  Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Lord, give us heart that doesn’t judge. Help us ta’ always be mindful that ya’ know everytin’ ‘bout us. In tha’ name of Jesus, amen.

Things ‘ta Think ‘bout:

1.      Have ya’ checked your heart taday? Is it clear of judgment?

2.      Ask God ta’ give ya’ a clean heart.
