Seeing my eyes through His? Are your eyes wide shut? To recognize opportunity knocking at your door you have to be paying attention. The most wonderful thing about youthfulness is that it is blind, you rarely see it coming or going. I have no shame in my game, I know things change, which is all the more reason to drink, drink while the water of life is running. Free-flowing water is opportunity knocking at your…
Today’s Spoken Word: “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 Believe this ~Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend~ Martin Luther King Jr."Today’s Spoken Word"
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hope, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they…"HAPPY VALENTINES DAY WITH LOVE"
On more than one occasion I have had a conversation with at least two preachers about today’s trend of churches paying guest preachers. Now, I will step lightly on this subject because I know that I can come off as a little radical sometimes. But, I said to the two preachers “I don’t get it?” Are you telling me that out of more than 1000 members in one case and a few hundred in the other,…"Is the Contemporary Church is Being Dishonest When it Claims to be Following Apostle Paul"
“Be still, and know that I am God!” (Psalm 46:10, NLT). One of my favorite scriptures in the bible is Psalm 46:10. My late mother often recited this verse when she felt overwhelmed or moved to share her wisdom on the subject of being discontent. Mother would say “sometimes you just need to be still, let go and let God.” It seems that every time I heard her say this, I was going through something. Clarity was out of…"Be Still and Know that I am God"
A few days ago I starting giving some thought to what kind of work-at-home career I can have when my unemployment runs out in a couple of months. Even though I’ve applied for jobs as required to receive unemployment benefits, nothing’s panning out. So what I’m doing is being pro-active! I’m not waiting until I get that last check. And actually I love blogging, so I’ve even considered making that a career instead of a…"IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND A PSYCHIC?"
You are alive tonight because He lives. The Lord God will see to it that whatever you need today, this morning, afternoon, evening or night you shall have. Just don’t confuse needs with wants. God’s priorities do not take our wants into consideration unless they fit into His will. For many, this concept of shepherding may seem confusing but they need only read Philippians 4:19, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to…"TONIGHT YOU ARE ALIVE BECAUSE HE LIVES"
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking at your own interests, but each of you to the interest of others. Philippians 2:3-4 NIV About four years ago, I belonged to a church that is considered progressive. The pastor allowed young men to deliver the sermon on youth day. I thought this was pretty cool. Not only did young pastors preach young people ran…"When God Speaks I Listen"
Does God promise to not give us more than we can handle? I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”John 16: 3 If you are like me you need prayer today, and may be asking the Lord,”if not now when?” Should you find yourself there pray to God. Do not be ashamed to admit…"PRAY TO GOD: IF NOT NOW WHEN?"
When we look in the mirror it’s rare to see what God sees. That’s because our vision, thoughts, and opinions of ourselves are not his. In other words, “no matter how much we think we got it all right the possibility that it’s mostly wrong is very very real. Why do you think that is? Well, for starters we are not perfect. Yes, even perfect Patty, pretty Paula or smart Susan fall short somewhere. All…"SEEING WHO GOD SEES IN THE MIRROR"
