“Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree”

I’m pretty sure that just about everywhere you go you’re hearing Christmas songs, hymns, hums, and jingles.

The excitement is truly in the air.

Things to do, parties to attend, plays to go to, gifts to buy and NOG to drink.

Yaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!

Judge You’re Not!

Happy Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Unchurched by Todd Dulaney

Why is it that we’re so quick to judge others.

Are we naturally conditioned to do so due to our religious backgrounds or home upbringing?

Why is it so easy to find the bad vs. the good in others?

Is it due to our own insecurities that keep us from uplifting others?

I personally think that it could be a little of all the above.

I also believe that due to us not knowing fully the magnitude of God’s love toward us it’s easy for us to believe that God himself couldn’t be completely nonjudgmental.

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Have Your Way by Casey J. Ft Jason Nelson

Have you ever thought about what mind frame certain people in the Bible must have had to succeed and complete their God purpose?

Take……..

Moses, and the Israelites deliverance out of Egypt. (Exodus 14)

Abraham and his strong belief that God would make his descendants innumerable. (Genesis 26:4)

David’s belief that he would one day be king in spite of Saul’s numerous death threats. (1 Samuel 19)

John the Baptist humble way of paving the way for Jesus. (Matthew 3)

Jesus’ death on the cross. (Matthew 27:32-56)

and countless others.

Read Hebrews the 11th chapter. (aka The Hall of Faith or God’s Hall of Fame)

You Will Find Him if You Seek Him

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Fill Me Up by Casey J

Now is the time to seek the Lord. With so many things going on in the world today–random terrorist attacks, senseless killings, suicides, job loss, depression, hearts being deceived–people becoming more and more desensitized to the needs and well being of others.

And why is that?

I believe it’s because we’ve become so overwhelmed with what we SEE and how we FEEL about what we see, that we’ve taken our focus off of God and the Word and taken matters into our own hands. The result? Messed up lives. Continue reading

Standing On His Promises

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Remember Me by Shana Wilson

Maybe you’re waiting on, or in the process of waiting on God.

How’s it going?

Are you feeling victorious, lost, apprehensive?

Or maybe a little in between?

During this time of waiting it’s imperative that you get into a place where you can be silent.

Because it will take silence, perseverance, and determination to surrender your will for God’s will.

Journey with God

Image result for I Need God

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on  Gave It All by Travis Greene

I Need Thee, Oh, I Need Thee;
 Every Hour I Need Thee;
Oh, Bless Me Now, My Savior,
I Come To Thee.

That song now rings fresh in my mind.

It’s a clear reminder from my soul that I should never forget what’s most important as I take this journey on this narrow road.

Surrendering to God’s will can sometimes be challenging because of the flesh. The flesh refuses to submit; therefore making it easy to feel the need to give up and just surrender to self.

But I know that if I just hold on and flee the flesh’s will then I’ll be able to submit and become one with God’s will.

God’s Way Is Free!

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on One Life To Love by 33 miles

I wrote this blog over a year ago and believe that it still stands true today.

Stress: A state of mental tension and worry caused by problems in your life, work, etc.

something that causes strong feelings of worry and anxiety.

physical force or pressure.

Just A Thought….

Today we’re living in a fast pace world.

Everything is rapidly changing.

We live in a time where it’s in with the new and out with the old.

And sometimes you may feel the pressure to keep up.

And if you’re not feeling the pressure, maybe you have kids who feel the pressure and therefore you now feel pressured.

It’s all about the latest shoes, clothes, tablets, Ipads, cell phones, and whatever else floats our way.

Things are moving so fast that we don’t even get the chance to enjoy what you already have.

It’s easy to become ungrateful and stressed out about how to get our hands on the next big thing.

So, what happens when we give into those temptations?

We may pick up more hours on our jobs.

We may pick up a second or third job.

We may even decide to turn to credit cards. (Yikes!)

We become stressed out, burned out, and physically and mentally drained.

We get so caught up in the “I want the best and I want my family to have the best” that we miss out on the most important parts of life.

Spending time with God, Family, Friends and our own Company.

When was the last time you were just able to relax your mind long enough not to think about anything but what’s right in front of you? 

Image-1 (6)

Remember the saying that the best things in life are free?

I’m starting to realize just how true that statement really is.

Going to the park, taking a walk, watching a movie, and praying together are things you can do with your loved ones.

And it’s free! Free I tell you!

It allows you to not only get in valuable time you’ll never get back, but it also allows you to become more in tuned to what’s really important in life.

It also allows you to draw closer to God, by drawing closer to the things that are important to him, people.

Isn’t it so good to be surrendering right now?

We not only get a chance to draw closer to our creator, but we’ll also get a chance to draw closer to the things of importance because we’re drawing closer to Him.

Just A Thought….

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Covered by Israel & New Breed

I’m just thinking about the word “Grace.”

What that word really means, and if I allow myself to extend grace to others according to the true definition of that word.

G-R-A-C-E

God’s Grace.

His “Unmerited Favor.”

He allows us to receive it, even though we don’t deserve it.
