In the last two months or so, my Prayer life has grown from a few fast minutes to extended Bible reading and meditation. My Prayers are not only for myself and my mind but, for others and their minds. OH MY LORD, what is happening? In our MINDS, HOMES, NEIGHBORHOODS, COMMUNITIES, CITIES, STATES AND COUNTRY. When we have nothing else to depend on, we must look to a HIGHER POWER! You may not agree with my belief but let me have mine; and I want throw shade on yours. As my Pastor wrote: ‘Father God, in these divisive times, give us wisdom on what changes we need to make to bring unity as we celebrate our diversity. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!’ That means a mind change from exclusion to…well…OK.
Don’t Limit God You are the creation. He is the Creator. You cannot out-think the One who made you. He delights in performing the Impossible. He is the Master of the Turn Around. Never underestimate Him.
“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible,” (Mark 10:27).
It seems that life is not important right now to some. There seems to be a lack of concern for the lives and well-being of some coming to America from lack of food, fear and oppression. Why entry for some is met with disdain and cruelty and others with jobs, homes and glad faces?
Grace is the most beautiful word in the Bible other than the name of our Savior. Grace is why God loves us when there is nothing lovely about us. We are not loved because we are valuable. We are valuable because we are loved by Him who created the heavens, the earth, the seas and all the dwells within them. Our lives do matter to HIM who created us. Show how grateful you are by being kind to someone today. You never know?
In life we suffer one of two pains, pain of discipline or pain of regret. The pain of discipline weighs ounces ~ doing what needs to be done, getting up earlier, develop a budget. But, the pain of regret weighs tons ~ heartache, divorce, lost of center/focus, loneliness. As we continue to make choices, which will you choose? The pain of discipline or the pain of regret?
There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
