Thought of the Day–4/15/18

Thought of the Day—How many times have you slid behind the wheel and expected to get to your destination…without turning over the ignition and putting the car in drive?  Sounds pretty silly, doesn’t it?  It’s the same way with being in God’s will; sometimes (many times) you have to step out in faith…it takes action on our part…and you won’t truly be where you need to be until you take that first…step…forward…

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 4/1/18–It’s Not About the Bunny

Bunnies

It’s not about the bunny or the patent leather shoes

It is not about the colored eggs or mama’s brand new do,

It is not about the spectacle of baskets with candy heaping full

It is about the selfless love God has for me and you.

***

For God so loved the world that He gave his only son

To take our place, to take our shame, to die for everyone,

And on that first Easter morn when God raised Christ from his tomb

Hope also arose for all mankind, that our destiny would not be doomed.

***

So as you celebrate Easter, celebrate also the empty cross

And praise the name of Jesus Christ without whom we would all be lost,

For it’s not about the bunny but yet a sense of life renewed

Eternal life for us is possible because of the empty tomb.

Thought of the Day–3/23/18

Thought of the Day—Believe it or not, the only constant in life is change and that is a very good thing.  If we never allowed God to change our attitudes and behaviors, we could never be molded into what He had intended for us to be.  So as you face another of life’s challenges head on, have faith that God actually knows what He is doing.  Just consider your pain and tears, your loss or your trials as life experiences that can be transformed into uniquely hued embroidery floss, applied by God to the beautiful, intricate and very ornate tapestry of your life.  Allow Him to delicately but deliberately interweave the ordinary into something quite extraordinary…YOU…

Thought of the Day–3/17/18

Thought of the Day—I may not have the “Luck O’ the Irish” coursing through my veins, but I have been empowered by the grace of God in my life.  And I may not have a pot o’ gold at my disposal, but I feel truly rich every time I hear the innocent laughter of my little granddaughter.  Besides, who wants those creepy little leprechauns running around anyway…
