People of Feelings by Pam Ford Davis (Free to Share)

5-16-20 TEA & TESTIMONIES-LADY TEAPOTS

We are people of feelings.

Our bodies alert us to temperature changes with feelings of hot and cold.

Emotionally, we feel happiness and sadness; peace and peril.

Tea may not always solve my problems.

I turn to someone who can.

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls (Matthew 11:28-29 NASB).”

 

 

Upside Down by Pam Ford Davis (Free to Share)

This teacup has been turned upside down.

That’s bad.

No, that’s good.

“As usual, Paul went to the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and showing that the Messiah had to suffer and rise from the dead: ‘This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Messiah.’ Then some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, including a great number of God-fearing Greeks, as well as a number of the leading women.

But the Jews became jealous, and they brought together some scoundrels from the marketplace, formed a mob, and started a riot in the city. Attacking Jason’s house, they searched for them to bring them out to the public assembly.  When they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city officials, shouting, ‘These men who have turned the world upside down have come here too (Acts 17:2-6 HCSB).”

Celebrate the risen LORD!

“After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, ‘Peace be with you.’ Then He said to Thomas, ‘Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.’ Thomas answered and said to Him, ‘My Lord and my God!’ Jesus said to him, ‘Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed (John 20:26-29 NASB).”

In this time of social distancing …

I’m having a tea party.  

Who will I invite?

Me, myself and I.  

Don’t pity me; I’m not really alone!

Jesus is always with me.

“And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:18-20 NASB).”

 

 

Ears to Hear by Pam Ford Davis (Free to Share)

Before cable television…

Before satellite television services…

Before Internet streaming…

We used outdoor antennas or rabbit ears!

“He began to teach again by the sea. And such a very large crowd gathered to Him that He got into a boat in the sea and sat down; and the whole crowd was by the sea on the land.  And He was teaching them many things in parables, and was saying to them in His teaching, ‘Listen to this! Behold, the sower went out to sow; as he was sowing, some seed fell beside the road, and the birds came and ate it up.  Other seed fell on the rocky ground where it did not have much soil; and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of soil.  And after the sun had risen, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.  Other seed fell among the thorns, and the thorns came up and choked it, and it yielded no crop.  Other seeds fell into the good soil, and as they grew up and increased, they yielded a crop and produced thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.’  And He was saying, He who has ears to hear, let him hear (Mark 4:1-9 NASB).”

 

 

He Fills My Cup by Pam Ford Davis (Free to Share)

Is the cup half full or half empty?

People have mixed opinions.

You decide.

I am blessed; my shepherd fills the cup.

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

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.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”

                                                      {Psalm 23:1-6 KJV}

 

 

The Act of Pouring by Pam Ford Davis (Free to Share)

A TEA & TESTIMONIES 2-1-2020-TEA FOR ALL REASONS

{Image: Tea For All Reasons}

The act of pouring tea brings comfort to the recipient.

Tea can soothe the body and ease the mind.

The act of pouring out one’s life in sacrificial service is highly commendable.

Apostle Paul gave his all.

“Yes, and if I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all (Philippians 2:17 NKJV).”

Take the time for prayer.

“Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, as he had been doing previously (Daniel 6:10 NASB).” 

We make time for what matters.

Make time for prayer.

“O You who hear prayer,
To You all men come (Psalm 65:2 NASB).”

 

 

Our Greatest Treasure by Pam Ford Davis (Free to Share)

Home is where the heart is?

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:19-21 NKJV).” 

We do treasure our families.

Yet, the LORD is our greatest treasure!

“… that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:2-3 NKJV).”

Watch your steps ahead…

“Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,  I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:12-14 NASB).”
