Worry and Anxiety!

“Now faith is the substances of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 We get anxious – we worry – we fret. Why? Because we look at the circumstances. We probably do not recognize it, but we live in a natural state most of the time which means we are focusing on what is going on around us. In other words what is happening in our lives, our families, our friends, our community, and country and yes, even in the world. God, however, sees all this that is going on. While we are focusing on all this, we forget God can do anything if we put our focus on him and not the problems. He can change the outcome. He is all powerful and all faithful. Faith is believing God’s word; doubt is not believing God’s word.  Blessings to You!

Strength In Him

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 My friend of forty-seven years, used to get up and walk every morning before going to work. We lived next door to each other then. And we both memorized this verse and repeated it every morning as we walked. It gave us a focus on where our strength would come from for the day that was ahead, regardless of what might come. Very comforting to both of us. Paul is saying, that we can do all things through Christ, not that we could do all things in ourselves. It is only Christ in us that we can come through any situation we are in. You know Paul said he was content in whatever situation he found himself in.  Christ did this in him. It wasn't Paul's doing. But Paul being in Christ and Christ in Paul, was able to go through the trials and circumstances he found himself in. Our hope is in the Lord. He came to earth and dealt with many circumstances, and I believe to show us how to deal with them. He was

Can We Extend Grace?

  This is considered one of the great scriptures about Grace. Through God's grace, which is a gift that cannot be earned, we are given a new life.  Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.” The cross made this possible. The question is can we extend grace to someone who does not deserve it? Blessings!

A Kindness to Extend

"Grace means undeserved kindness. It is the gift of God to man the moment he sees he is unworthy of God's favor." Dwight L. Moody As we look around us today, in our own communities we are fortunate to see people who are extending kindness to others.  The news parades the terrible things people do each day to others. But praise God when there is one story about someone extending kindness to someone in need it warms out hearts. The thing is, God's grace to us is undeserved. He didn't ask us if we had done what was required of us. Let us not look at someone on the outside and determine if they are worthy of our kindness and compassion. Let us be Christ like. Blessings,

Your Free Gift From God

“When you pick up the cross of unpopularity, wherever you may be, you will find God’s grace is there, more than sufficient to meet your every need.” Billy Graham Grace is the unmerited favor of God. We don't deserve it, yet He gives it to us freely. Why? Because He loves us. When you look at the cross, Jesus died for me and you. He took our sins upon Himself. Because of Him, we have God's grace. We have forgiveness and eternal life. Our human mind has a difficult time understanding the magnitude of what Christ did for us and the grace that God so freely gave to us. I didn't deserve it! It was a gift! That is Grace!

Do You Pout or Smile?

"  Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." Mahatma Gandh i When you are walking to one place to another does your face show how you really feel? Does it show you are sad? Angry? Confused? Next time you are in a store, look at all the people. Which ones look happy? Which ones have the sad, angry or confused looks? My grandfather use to tell me, when I was a child, it was just as easy to put a smile on my face as it was to pout . . .and if I continued to pout I would trip over my lips! I don't pout anymore, but I confess I did when I was a child. Oh, not all the time, just sometimes. This is probably where I developed the habit of looking the expressions on others. It is better for sure, to have a smile on our face. It somehow gives you a lift. We can all be joyful that because of Christ we have forgiveness of our sins. That along should make us happy. Blessings!

What Is God's Will?

  “Whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him” Hebrews 11:6 “Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!” Psalm 105:4 Billy Graham said, “God wants us to know His will and He reveals it to us both through the Bible and through the guidance of His Holy Spirit. Seek God’s will when you pray, and He will help you know it.” How many times have we thought it was hard to know God's will? If He would just tell us. The funny thing is, He did tell us. His will is written in the Bible. However, if we don't read the book, then we will not know. He wants us to know what His will His. He has plans for us. Blessings!
