Thought of the Day–5/4/18

Thought of the Day—God wants to clear away all the unnecessary clutter in our lives so we can concentrate on what is really important in life; serving Him.  Just resist the temptation to start dumpster diving after what was just slam dunked into the old dumpster…

Thought of the Day–4/14/18

Thought of the Day—It is simply incomprehensible to think that One so holy could take the place of one so unworthy…call it love…call it grace…call Him Jesus…

Thought of the Day–4/6/18

Thought of the Day—Have you ever noticed when sunflowers bloom, their large mustard yellow heads and black faces continue to follow the sun all throughout the day?  It’s part of their DNA, how they are created.  Here’s a question for you; what turns your head?  What drives you, where do your passions lie, what peaks your interests?  If you have trouble answering that question, you are not alone.  But there is a caution that aligns with our hesitancy.  For in this age of gimmicks, fads, trends and instant gratification, we are very easily distracted by those things that fade almost as fast as they appear and we end up looking like…well…bobble heads, never really focused in on anything of substance.  Today I challenge you to reexamine the “head turners” in your life.  Are they contributing to your life or eternal goals? Remember, we all have the same hours of every day and only one life here on this earth with no promise for tomorrow.  Are we being good stewards of the time we have been given?

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.  Hebrews 12:1 (NLT)

Thought of the Day–4/5/18

Thought of the Day—I know most of you have heard the old adage, “time heals all wounds” which is true, especially when forgiveness was applied.  Many times, what’s left is a scar that serves as a reminder of a painful but teachable experience and when put in proper perspective, can give strength to one’s character.  But when we are in the process of healing, we need to be on the lookout for what I call scab pickers; those that attempt to reopen that same painful wound by throwing out reminders of the hurting incident and therefore, keep you from healing.  Satan is a pro at doing this; so are some “so called” friends or family…don’t be deceived by their tactics but always keep these “antagonistic monsters” at arm’s length and pray for peace, healing…and perhaps selective memory loss?
