OUR DIFFERENCES WERE INTENTENDED!

June 22, 2019

God created us in His image yet each different in his and her own way.   But we’re forever at war with one another over the discord we see and hear. We refuse to see His face in others and further refuse to see and hear all that can be created when we blend together!    LET’S START A NEW TRADITION!  THE ONE HE INTENDED ALL ALONG!- Martha L Shaw

UNRAVELLED

 

 

We begin life finely knit together,

One to another,

No labels,

Many colors,

Plump or delicate,

Uniquely different yet all the same

In likeness to Him.

Sadly,

We mature and our eyes,

Those human orbs,

Deny the truth held in our hearts.

LAWS . . .Wondrous???

Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.Psalm 119:18 ESV

As a child, I often thought “Why is the teacher always picking on me?” At the time it seemed not only was I picked on, but a very high percentage of the time!  As an adult, I saw things differently. Rules and laws save and protect us and for certain keep us on the right path so that we will learn and accomplish what we very much need to.  As we mature in life and in relationship with our Heavenly Father, Teacher . . . it is espectially important!  We are created out of His amazing love for a blessed purpose which could result in our hurting ourselves and others if we do not obey!

Our Father God is waiting for us to seek forgiveness when we disobey and His sadness while waiting for us is due to His immeasurable love!  How incredible is it that once we repent, He eagerly holds us and leads us to the right path!!

 


WE DECEIVE OURSELVES!

Before we judge and

close our doors and hearts to one another,

we need to remember that

our church buildings would be empty of any but

our Triune God

were it not for

we sinners present!

To bless her Creator!

LOVE THY NEIGHBOR

The Stranger’s Cat

cat2

Glancing outside my window

and across the street,

I see a tired home

in near darkness.

I wonder who lives there

for I have never seem

your face

oh neighbor of mine.

I wonder if you are happy

or sad,

tall or short.

I know you have love in your heart,

for I have met your cat.

I see the garage door

is always left open . . .

not much,

but just enough for my furry friend

to pass in and out.

I’d like to someday meet

the one who loves my furry friend.

The Pathway . . . What Are You WAITING For?

October 11, 2013

i often hear folks complaining about “what’s wrong with the world today” and saying “things must change.” Are you one of them?PATH 2 How are you working toward making things new? Christians! Sitting in the corner quietly is no more effective than the whining is. PATH AND PERSON Jesus did neither of these things. Are you being Jesus to the folks in your piece of the world? If we are not, then WE are why things are the way they are!PATH AND TREES Folks are placed in our path for a reason! Seek the answer! Be Christ to them!PATH IN THE WOODS
