Thought of the Day–12/1/17

NATIVITY

Thought of the Day—As we transition from the season of thanks to the season of giving, we need to continue to be in an attitude of thanksgiving.  For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)

Confession

Thought of the Day—Do you want to know a secret?  There are no secrets with God; He knows everything we’ve done and said anyway…it’s just a matter of being real with Him and confessing what He already knows.  Don’t you think our human relationships would go a little smoother if we were more open and honest with others?  I’m not talking about brute force honesty but speaking out truth in love…

Thought of the Day–11/7/17

Hand to hold

Thought of the Day—It may take a village to raise a child, but that doesn’t give anyone the permission to abandon their children in the village square.  We need to once again cherish and treat our children as they really are; a precious gift from God, an eternal soul entrusted to our care, the next generation in a pint sized form.  They are not someone else’s responsibility, your best friend in training or constant irritant…they are a reminder from God to us that we too, still need to find the wonderment in the everyday, what it means to once again enjoy the essence of innocence in trusting others, to possess a colored blind heart… Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

Thought of the Day–9/5/17

Doll

Thought of the Day— Do you ever feel like one of the broken, one of the walking wounded, perhaps one of the not so perfect inhabitants on the Island of misfit toys?  If you do, don’t feel so isolated for there are many of us walking around this earth.  But guess what?  Jesus preferred to run around with the out crowd, the outcasts, the least of these probably because the need was so great and so much grace was able to be given.  Even on this day, this hour, this moment, Jesus wants to meet you just where you are…to apply much grace, more mercy, and most of all full forgiveness.  But just remember one thing, He WILL meet you where you are but has no intention for you to remain the way you are…
