Happy Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on NO Longer Slaves by Jonathan and Melissa Helser

I think today is a great day to start back on the road to trusting God.

Sometimes the storm may get so hard that it seems like the only way to get any relief is by occupying your mind with something else.

It’s usually not even intentional. That reality t.v show, that delicious sweet you can’t seem to live without, shopping without purpose, internet surfing with no direction, or just becoming a couch potato and watching movie after movie.

Anything to bring peace to your surroundings and current situation.

I’ve buried myself so far down in the rabbit hole that I couldn’t see my way out.

Faith That Moves!

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Stay and Wait by Hillsong United

I wrote this blog awhile back, but still and always will believe that if you completely let go, God will do the impossible. And, I’m talking about the thing that you know there is no way you’ll ever acquire on your own, or with your own might.

Whew, have you ever thought about how easy it is to give up?

I mean seriously, faith can sometimes be a lot of work. It requires a lot of stamina, energy, strength, and perseverance to see your way through all the darkness.

It sometimes makes you want to scream, cry, and shout from the top of your lungs.

Having faith and not seeing the results you wish to see may even make you want to blame God or whoever’s closest to you.

But I’ve heard that it’s in the times of testing that we are made. That’s when we find out what we’re really made of.

Song for meditation, Click on It Took A Child To Save The World – Fred Hammond

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a……

“Ahem!”

And so it was, that, while
they were there (In the City of David), the days were
accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her
firstborn son, and wrapped him
in swaddling clothes, and laid
him in a manger; because there
was no room for them in the inn.

Wow! Can you believe that Christmas is right around the corner?

It seems that we were just celebrating Thanksgiving the other day and now, Christmas is right on our tails.

So what better time to start the two-part series of Jesus’ birth then today?

You may not have had time to sit down and read the story to either yourself or your family and loved ones due to the demands of life, but what better time than now to prepare for a two-part night of story time where you gather everyone together, have some popcorn or baked goods and just experience the humble magnificence of our Savior Jesus Christ.

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.

Start by Walking!

Image result for the health benefits of walking

Quick Tip Monday!!!

Nowadays doesn’t it seem like everything that’s good for you cost money? Well have I got a freebie for you!

Look out the window and just begin to daydream about the fresh breeze of air against your skin, your feet hitting the pavement and glowing beads of sweat lightly grazing your brow bone?

What are you doing,  you ask? You’re walking!

Now refocus and actually step outside. Your daydream has just become your reality with loads of potential and advantages.

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
