Thought of the Day–3/25/18

Thought of the Day—God doesn’t want us to go through life like a simple pane of glass; thin, fragile and easily broken.  Rather, God wants to transform us into strong, transparent, sparkling diamonds.  But we must first submit to His authority and allow God to work in our daily lives; to discipline and teach us His ways.  Bit by bit, He chips away the unnecessary and harmful habits in our lives until we become a useful multi-faceted gem that reflects His beauty…not our own…

Thought of the Day–3/15/18

Thought of the Day—Somewhere along the way, we have lost something very valuable…faith…in God, in our fellow man, in ourselves.  The faith to know what is right and stand up for it, the faith to believe without seeing, to trust that a promise is honored by ones’ word.  We have replaced faith with fear…fear of the unknown, fear of political uncertainty, fear of being without, fear of being alone and rejected, fear of the inevitable…death.  And so we walk around blindly accepting anything that comes along including barefaced lies dressed in polished professionals offering alternative news, alternative integrity, and embellished truths.  Don’t you think it is past time to reverse this trend?  Let’s pray for a discerning heart, open eyes, discriminating ears and a disciplined tongue to sort through this blatant deception versus truth.  Fear drives a wedge between different races, creeds, and cultures.  Faith says we can get through anything together.  Fear won’t get you past your own front door but faith will take you to places you’ve never imagined…Today, may your faith become bigger than your fear…

Help, Lord, for no one is faithful anymore; those who are loyal have vanished from the human race. Everyone lies to their neighbor; they flatter with their lips but harbor deception in their hearts.  May the Lord silence all flattering lips and every boastful tongue—Psalm 12:1-3 (NIV)

Thought of the Day–3/8/18

Thought of the Day—I wonder what would happen if we tried to spend more time with God and less time spent on making more friends and likes on one of the social networking sites?  As important as friends are, friends and followers WILL come and go; we can’t afford to have a nonchalant prayer life and we can’t tweet our way to Heaven…Can I get a Like and Share? (just kidding…)

Thought of the Day–3/2/18

Thought of the Day—One of God’s greatest gifts is to have a clarity of purpose, to run unhindered toward the goal God has instilled in your heart.  Unfortunately, we have a tendency to sabotage our own lives to the extent of filling our days with ambiguous nonsense that leaves us paralyzed and useless.  Here’s to getting back up and continuing the journey; forgive the friend or loved one, forgive yourself, ask for forgiveness, pray that God WILL give you enough strength for each day…and move on…
