We ain't gonna cancel joy.

I’d like to share this beautiful and kindly effort with you by my fellow blogger and Christian Friend Ali. Her work is highly commendable and noteworthy and I was so inspired by this latest positive message from her that I was truly moved and felt the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ moving in this very troubling time with so many doubts swirling around the planet; but here we have Ali my Christian Sister giving me a shot to my heart of the only medicine that matters, the one true cure for anything that ails any of us and it comes to us direct from God in heaven if we just have an open heart to receive it. Ali is a motivator and she certainly motivated my positive energy that I admit can be dampened or skewed at times by the actual resentment I develop toward some very nasty people running amuck on this planet doing great harm and not caring who they pull down in the process. But let me include here what I had to say to Ali just before I realized I had to take this action.
Dear Ali, thank you for this lovely effort and dedication to serve our Lord Jesus Christ and you’re seeking His guidance to serve! I’m very touched and moved by your heart and work that you do in the community!
No suspension of our belief and faith in Jesus Christ who is always with us and to allow Him to handle what we aren’t required to, but to continue being inspired by Him to encourage and serve those in need where and when we can to also receive God’s love and hope for His children, for He alone is our Savior and Redeemer.
“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Isaiah 41:13

Post Script: A few hours after posting this blog article I received another notification about a very beautiful poem by another blogger friend which brought out the following response from me in just a few minutes which I know was because God’s will is working within us all, if we will just listen to Him in silence.  The following script fits I feel, like a dovetail!  I didn’t plan any of it; it all fell into place, thank God.

Excellent Robbie! Such encouragement is a powerful force for those who worry and tremble in despair, wanting to hear a voice of assurance from anywhere. Pensively they wait all cloistered in their homes, then while all shut in; they wonder if some good will soon come from within. But, at last a voice like yours breaks through that wall of fear, letting them know its OK to let out a tear; as we can rest assured we are not alone as surely the dawn will bring a reprise, when we all will witness another beautiful sunrise. 🙏🏻
God Bless.
This is such a beautiful photo with the words to match, my Friend.

It's a God thing...

We’re seeing the suspension of a heck of a lot at the moment.

It’s discouraging.

Heartbreaking.

Worrying.

But let’s boldly decide NOT to cancel joy.

Or hope.

Or peace.

And lean into Jesus at this time.

What is he showing you right now?

Below is a video I made today, for the community centre I work at.

I hope it reminds you you’re not alone in this.

Love,

Ali

    1. 🤗 Hi Sally! Absolutely, and thank you for saying that! Like our Christian Sister Ali has reminded me, and now because of her generosity I can reach out to anyone else that I can do the same for; that it’s so important to know and remember the fruits of the Holy Spirit which you and Ali always seem to have in plain sight, and just like my mother had to remind me over the years of these blessings I’m still occasionally in need of a reminder or two, or even three! Isn’t that video beautiful and what a wonderful job Ali did in promoting all the good, representing our Lord’s Holy Spirit of peace and love at work, that will overcome all our difficulties. This blog of Ali’s reminds me of my walk with my dog and meeting the nice grandmother with her baby granddaughter, of how precious the beauty of life is that God has bestowed upon this world, and our great need to recognize that fact each moment of every day; then to seek His will for us! Our faith is our vital connection to all that matters in the universe; our Savior Jesus! Amen.

      1. Yes, Lawrence – that is well said : ‘Our faith is our vital connection to all that matters in the universe; our Saviour Jesus.’
        This also reminds me of the words of St. Teresa of Avila. These words were found written in her prayer book.

        Let nothing disturb you,
        Let nothing frighten you.
        All things are passing ; God never changes.
        He, ( or she) who has God, has everything.
        God alone suffices. 🤗

      2. Perfect Sally! 🤗 See, already I witness that God’s Holy Spirit was moving and I felt that when I saw Ali’s blog/video and knew there was reason to share it immediately and you have delivered a good portion of that reason, by your sharing these words from St. Teresa of Avila. Those very words are beautiful and perfect to keep in mind during these tumultuous times in the world, because people need encouragement and to gain a willingness to seek the “only light that shines forever” which can only come from the source of all things our Creator, God Almighty. With God all things are possible and without Him nothing but loss. Amen.
