If it Looks Like a Duck and Walks Like a Duck

Wow. eye opening!


bu_043013_bThis survey by the Barna Group is worth a glance if it causes us to reflect on who others see in us; Jesus or Pharisee?

By the time I had made it through the article I was questioning some of my own attitudes and actions. As much as I didn’t want to admit it, it appears there may be a little  more Pharisee residing in this heart of mine than Kingdom living allows. Here’s a sampling, and the entire article with some neat charts can be found here.

Actions like Jesus:

  • I listen to others to learn their story before telling them about my faith.
  • In recent years, I have influenced multiple people to consider following Christ.
  • I regularly choose to have meals with people with very different faith or morals from me.
  • I try to discover the needs of non-Christians rather than waiting for them to come to me.

Back in the Box

We are all difficult to love and yet we all, in our secret hearts, desire to change others. What a great post this i to remind us who God is and that we are NOT Him!

What Are You Afraid Of?

August 28, 2013

Gosh, it is so difficult to face our fear(s) and this is made still more difficult since most of us cannot or will not admit to them.  They can be crippling though.  In seeking strength to face and be delivered of some challenges I’m dealing with just now I turned to the Bible.  Thanks to technology and Bible Gateway I can assure you that we are not alone in this.  The Lord knows our hearts and desires to make us new creatures.  In the NIV translation of the Bible this word “fear” is mentioned 336 times.  Clearly, He desires to deliver us.  I want to be all He wants me to be for Him.  Here are a few encouraging verses:

You will be protected from the lash of the tongue, and need not fear when destruction comes.

Job 5:20-22

then, free of fault, you will lift up your face; you will stand firm and without fear.

Job 11:14-16

You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,

Psalm 91:4-6

“Hear me, you who know what is right, you people who have taken my instruction to heart: Do not fear the reproach of mere mortals or be terrified by their insults.

Isaiah 51:6-8

to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him without fear

Luke 1:73-75


Sleeping On The Watch

August 27, 2013

Wow, is this timely for something I’m battling with. Gonna share it. Important message.


Beware, keep alert, for you do not know when the time will come.  Mark 13:28-37  I used to fight sleep; especially when I was trying to get something done. But the reality is that I’m just not that effective or creative when I am tired. I want to give God all that I have, receive all that God has to give and be ready when the time comes. The only way I can do this is to take the proper rest and trust God’s timing.

Rest In Him

August 27, 2013

I am on the way out the door and feeling in need of solving all the troubles around me . . . He knows so much better than I.  (stopping to breathe)  Joyce Meyer Ministries sent this quote which say sit all:

God wants to give you rest for your weary soul (see Matthew 11:28).
