Thought of the Day–12/11/17

Snowman

12/11/17 Thought of the Day—Why do we strive to be like everyone else when God made each one us so individualized and special?  Isn’t it time we attempt to delve into just how special we are instead of trying to mimic Peggy Perfect or Mikey Macho?  After all, if God made each of our fingerprints unique, just think how remarkably different our personalities and character traits really are?

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)

Peace Frog

Thought of the Day—It has been one month ago today that our beautiful sister/wife/mom/aunt/friend Jennifer left this world to live an eternal, abundant life with our Heavenly Father.  And while we all continue to grieve in our own way, memories about Jennifer remain a constant to ease the pain of our loss.  Here’s one bit of information about Jennifer I bet most people knew; she loved frogs, as was reflected in every room of her home.  She also loved the playful peace frog which seemed to be a throwback to the hippie era.  But did you know that the word frog is also an acronym for Fully Rely On God?  So here’s a Thought of the Day from Jennifer and her beloved frogs; FULLY RELY ON GOD AND HE WILL GIVE YOU PEACE…peace…love…out…

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–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…
