SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/24/15- “Its A Brand New Day, Therefore, It’s A Great Time To Ding About You, O LORD!” (Psalms 59:16)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/24/15- “Its A Brand New Day, Therefore, It’s A Great Time To Sing About You, O LORD!” (Psalms 59:16)
Premise Question: What day is it, what time is it, what are we to do about it and where are we to go?
“But as for me, I will sing about your power. Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love. For you have been my refuge, a place of safety when I am in distress.” (Psalms 59:16 NLT)
But as for me, I will choose to begin each new day, by rising up and singing a song, about Your marvelously strong and all powerful matchless strength. I will choose to rejoice, with celebratory worship and praise, by singing out, at the top of my lungs, using all of my breath, letting everyone, within earshot, know of Your incomparable, always constant, never failing, immeasurable love. For You, O LORD GOD Almighty, are my place of refuge, the tower of strength, that I run into for shelter and cover, my place of safety and aid and my escape from all that is troubling, harmful, harassing and dangerous, my sanctuary of peace, my eternal resting place and my all sufficient provision for all of my needs. (Psalms 59:16 PDCP)
Bottom Line: I don’t know about anyone else, and therefore, I won’t speak for anyone else. But this one thing I do absolutely know for sure. Each and everyday of my existence, I know what day and time it is and I do know what I’ve decided to do about it and where and what direction I’m headed and going towards! For each and every day is a brand new day, given to me by The LORD, that I have the privilege, honor and blessed opportunity to say: This is the day that The LORD has made; therefore, I will rejoice and be very glad in it! I will choose to sing of the mercies of The LORD everyday! I will sing about His marvelous works and how His unfailing love endures forever and is extended to all generations everyday! I will sing everyday about how He is my safe hiding place, the place that I always run into when I’m in trouble or distressed, in desperate need of His comfort and peace, His protection, aid and relief and a strong shelter during life’s tumult and storms. What day is it, what time is it and what should we do about it? It’s a brand new day, and therefore, it’s a great day to sing, shout and proclaim to everyone, including declaring it to ourselves, that The LORD is good and greatly to be praised and worshipped, with songs of thanksgiving and heartfelt gratitude! Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/14/15- “When All Else Fails, He Still Remains The Same And Continues To Sustain!” (Psalms 73:26)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/14/15- “When All Else Fails, He Still Remains The Same And Continues To Sustain!” (Psalms 73:26)
Premise Question: Regardless of what may happen or what we may have to go through and endure in this life; what and who always remains a constant and through it all, will never abandon, forsake or let us down, but will continue to remain, forever and ever, the same?
“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.” (Psalms 73:26 NLT)
Everything around me, including my health and my heart, may falter and fail, but The LORD GOD Almighty, is now, has been, and shall always continue to forever be, without end, the unfailing, ever refreshing, truly encouraging and renewing, joyful strong force and strength of my innermost being, deep within the within, of my heart and soul, as He shall always be, (for nothing else can even begin to fulfill or satisfy) my portion and lot in life, the epitome of all that completely fills and sustains my life. (Psalms 73:26 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There are probably, in many of our individual lives, going to be an occasion, a time, an event, situation or circumstance, whereby, we may be subject to slipping, faltering, floundering, fizzling or falling short and perhaps even completely failing; and as a result, becoming embittered because of it all, torn up on the inside, by resentfulness, malice, hate and an unforgiving heart, lacking any physical or spiritual vim, vigor or vitality, completely bankrupt and devoid of a flourishing and refreshing life. But, The LORD GOD Almighty, who is ever merciful and enduring, faithful and true, will come to our aid and rescue, when we call upon His Everlasting Name. And then, He will lift us up out of the mire and mud, stuck in the ditch, trench or chasm we’ve fallen into, and set our feet upon solid ground, even The Rock of our salvation. He then begins leading, guiding and giving us wise counsel, that directs our feet onto the path and into the way, that will bring us back into a right and holy relationship with Him and that ultimately leads us to our most glorious and divine destiny. That is why we desire Him more than we desire anything else upon this earth! He, The LORD GOD, is the quintessence of our existence, as He is our treasure trove, our wellspring of life and the secret to a thriving, more than just surviving, flourishing, completely satisfying and fulfilling existence! When all else fails around me, even when I fail, He remains ever the same, for I am His and He is mine, nothing’s ever going to change that, for He will always continue to sustain me, forever and forever, without end! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/07/15- “The LORD Is Loving And Kind, Towards His Own!” (Jeremiah 31:3)
Premise Question: Can someone come to The LORD, on their own, without first being drawn to Him, with His never failing, everlasting love?
“Long ago the LORD said to Israel: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.”
(Jeremiah 31:3 NLT)
The LORD God Almighty Himself, has shown up in times past, by making His manifest presence visible to us, in order to declare, as well as, express, His deep, heartfelt disposition and strong propensity towards us, which is: “I have loved you, I do and will continue to love you, and I shall always love you, with an endless, boundless, enduring throughout and beyond all generations, all time, everlasting love; for I Myself have enticed and allured you, with My powerfully attractive, never changing kindness, that’s inexhaustible, constantly reliable, benevolently affectionate, full of gracious favor, and shall always be faithfully indulgent towards you.” (Jeremiah 31:3 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Papa God has shown us, all of humankind, His unique and greatly beloved creation, just how much He loves us, by kindly sending His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world, to take our place, in order to pay for each of our sins, so that we can have the wonderful opportunity of taking advantage of His merciful and most gracious gift of salvation and eternal life; that our loving Papa God has made available to everyone, through the offering of His Only Son upon the cross. This actually, is what real, authentic love looks like: He, The LORD, who is the personification of real love, first loved us, with His perfect love, that casts out all fear, as it is an everlasting love and one that shall never disappoint nor fail us in anywise; with regards to why He has openly put His lavish love on display, for all to see, which is His strong disposition and propensity towards us. Finally, remember the very words of The LORD, when He said that no one can come to Him unless Papa God, His Father, the one who sent Jesus to the world, draws them to Him. And, Jesus also said, that when He is lifted up before the world, (which is part of our divine call and mission as members of The Company of The Redeemed) that He would then draw everyone unto Himself! So, no! Unless someone is first drawn to The LORD, by and through the unfailing and everlasting love of Papa God, then one can not come to The LORD, but The love of Papa God compels all to come to His Son for deliverance from sin, salvation and eternal life! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/22/15- “Pursue Righteousness And Unfailing Love, And You’ll Find Life!” (proverbs 21:21)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/22/15- “Pursue Righteousness And Unfailing Love, And You’ll Find Life!” (Proverbs 21:21)
Premise Question: Where in the world can a person go to and who can they run to, in order to find a satisfying, really enjoyable, abundant living, virtuous, spiritual life, of dignity and renown; that’s sustainable, as well as, having the greatest amount of longevity, and, that’s also full of an inexhaustible, completely trustworthy, reliable, never ending, matchless love?
Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor. (Proverbs 21:21 NLT)
It matters not who you are or from whence you came, for if you choose to strive to gain, following hard after, in order to attain, right and just living, as well as, with earnest devotion, seek Papa God’s love, the only love known to humankind that’s unfailing, incomparable and freely given, a redemptive love that endures forever, you shall prosper; enjoying and experiencing to the fullest, a life filled with His goodness, His love, His everlasting joy and peace and that, with great value, dignity and high honor. (Proverbs 21:21 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Where can a person go to find dignity and real life and who does a person run to, in order to experience authentic love, be valued and given great honor? Well, it really is quite simple and easy to answer; for anyone and everyone, anywhere and everywhere, can go to the place of safety, comfort and refuge, the place of The Almighty’s presence. And then, once there, can choose to run into the anxiously awaiting, accepting and embracing, loving arms, of the full of grace and mercy, Sovereign LORD, Papa God Almighty, and there receive the fullness of everlasting joy and peace, living eternally in His glorious presence and light! We, as humankind, have a holy quest and are to run this race of life, treating it and approaching it, as the greatest and most honorable thing in this life, a lifelong pursuit of His holiness, His righteousness, with honor and Papa God’s great endless love! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/11/05- “The LORD Revives Us With His Boundless Love And Fills Us With Joyful Expectation!” (Psalm 94:18-19)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/11/15- “The LORD Revives Us With His Boundless Love and Fills Us With Joyful Expectation!” (Psalm 94:18-19)
Premise Question: Thank The LORD that He is there to pick us up when we slip and slide or fail and fall down; but, why is it the case for many of us, that the only time we seem to call upon The Name of The LORD is when we are in utter despair or desperately in need of His help and assistance?
I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O LORD, supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. (Psalms 94:18-19 NLT)
It was when I came to the full realization, O LORD, that I was absolutely loosing my grip in life, not able to hold on any longer, feeling like I had completely lost my bearings and was literally coming apart at the seams, having lost any semblance of sure footing on the extremely slippery slope I was trying to negotiate, that I began to call upon Your Name with a great sense of urgency, lamenting out loud, with tortured and grievous tears. It was then, at that very moment, that I began to experience Your great love washing over for me, wave after wave, it overwhelmed and undergirded me, steadying my walk and calming my mind, by removing all uncertainty, worry and angst from my mind and deep within me, with Your boundless and great consoling love, which brought exhilarating joy and a complete reviving of an expectation of optimism back into my life! (Psalm 94:18, 19 PDCP)
Bottom Line: It truly is a wonderful blessing, honor and privilege to be able to call upon The Name of The LORD in our times of turmoil, trial, trouble and terrible tribulations, our times of distress and despair, when we are full of doubts and desperation; for He will surely overwhelm us with His unfailing love; filling us with exhilarating joy and reviving in us an expectation of optimism, by renewing our spirit and completely restoring our soul. We should make it our common practice, though, to not just call on The Name of The LORD when we are in trouble or need, but at all times, on all occasions, in every situation and circumstance, whether it’s in good times or bad times, high times or low times, up or down, even during times when we have all that we have need of, as well as, during those times that we may have little of or not have anything of what we are lacking and in great need of. The LORD has promised to answer us when we call. (Jeremiah 33:3) He’s told us that when we call upon Him to not be afraid or fearful. (Lamentations 3:57) He has encouraged us to seek Him and call upon His Name while He is near. (Isaiah 55:6) He has commanded us to be at peace and instructed us to be still. (Psalm 46:10) We are to always be full of and expressing The joy of The LORD, being considerate towards others, not worrying about anything, but praying about everything, telling The LORD what we need and always being thankful to Him, and constantly keeping our focus on Him, while serving and doing good to others. (Philippians 4:4-9) Call on The Name of The LORD everyday, at all times, on every occasion, in every circumstance and situation and fully experience His boundless love, being revived and renewed, filled with an expectation of optimism and joy! Blessings…
