Makes me Shiver!

I can't stop thinking about this verse: John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. My God!

Be Good to One Another

In John 15:12, Jesus says to His disciples "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you." He didn't say, "You know, you should probably think about loving one another, it couldn't hurt". So, if He commanded this, why do we think that we get to pick and choose whom we will love and to what extent? Why is it so hard to treat everyone, not just family or close friends, with love and compassion? I would like to challenge you, as well as myself, to show some love and compassion to at least three people outside of your circle of close friends and family this weekend. It doesn't have to be some great deed, but rather a simple act of kindness. Let's meet back to discuss it on Monday, 3/23/09. Godspeed!

Where's the Love?

So inspiring...I Love This

To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did. When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence...The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Calm Down

Why am I easy to anger? I often ask myself this question once I have settled down and realize that it wasn't as bad as it seemed at the time. It's as if I am stepping outside of myself and watching "the show". Unfortunately, it is always a rerun of the last episode and I am left feeling ridiculous, confused, embarrassed and sinful. I despise this feeling, so why do I continue to go there if I know the ultimate outcome? If I know this about myself why do I keep falling into the trap? Why do I continue to allow the devil to use me as a puppet? When I ask the question "why do I...", I am speaking of all of us who have and will fall into the enemy's traps. Does it give me comfort to know that I am not alone in this? Yes and no. Yes, because we are all born with a sinful nature and only God can save us and it is a gift that He has extended to us if we desire it. No, because it doesn't make it okay. Is hell a little more tolerable if I take my friends and family with me? I don't think so! So, I must keep reminding myself that He loves me and He only wants the best for me. He doesn't desire for me to live in bondage to "my ways". Tonight, I will meditate on this: "Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." (Mt. 11:28-30).
