SUNDAY SPIRITUAL

Prayer

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.

SUNDAY SPIRITUAL

God Bless America

God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home sweet home.

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free.
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer

Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home sweet home.
God bless America,
My home sweet home.

WEDNESDAY WISDOM

GOD through the eyes of a child

 

The following essay was written some years ago by Danny Dutton, 8 years old, who lives in Chula Vista, CA.  His assignment was to write about GOD.  It’s a little long, but so, so worth the read, a little at a time.

One of GOD’s main jobs is making people.  He makes these to put in place of the ones who die, so there will be enough people here on earth to take care of things.  He doesn’t make grownups.  Just babies.  I think because they are smaller and easier to make.  That’s so He doesn’t have to take up His valuable time teaching them to talk and walk.  He can just leave that up to mothers and fathers.  I think it works out pretty good.

GOD’s second most important job is listening to prayers.  An awful lot of this goes on, as some people, like preachers pray other times than bed time.  GOD doesn’t have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this.  As He hears everything, not only prayers, there must be a terrible lot of noise going on in His ears, unless He thought of a way to turn it off.

God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere.  Which keeps Him pretty busy.  So you shouldn’t go wasting His time by going over your parent’s head and asking for something they already said you couldn’t have.

…to be continue.
