HE DID NOT CREATE US WITH LABELS

The happy little dandelion

growing in the field

smiled toward heaven

all the while.

No one ever said

“you’re just a weed”

so he had no doubt

that he was loved.

Perhaps

there is a lesson

here for me?

WE ARE BORN WITH OPEN MINDS  AND LOVING HEARTS.

LET’S REMEMBER HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS!

SEASONS OF RENEWAL

November 7, 2016

A change of season always brings renewal.

 When we open ourselves to the possibilities,

we see the beauty!  

When we walk in faith,

we reflect the sun!

BRICK WALLS AND MOUNTAINTOPS

October 3, 2016

 

Obstacles . . . we grow so accustomed to them that we are completely blind to their existence . . . and all too often, we created them ourselves!  Life brings us lots of “I wonder why” moments but it also brings us “no, really! I am fine!” discussions when folks around us try to help us breakthrough our prison walls and be all we can be. Take me, for example.  For years I was encouraged to attend a        Christian retreat called Cursillo.  I always politely said “no.”  Mythoughts were “I know who Jesus is” and “I go to church.”

 

After years of urging, I noticed folks who went on the retreat came back so happy . . . so changed.  Of course I knew I did not need to change, but decided it might be fun and my friends would finally lay off.  So I went to Cursillo.  BREAKTHROUGH!  MY life was forever, eternally, changed!  There was so much more for me in life with and IN Christ than I realized.  He is my lover and best friend and so much more!  I can do NOTHING without Him and do not want to.

 

Life has many obstacles . . . preventing us from:

 

  1. Returning to school
  2. Buying a home
  3. Paying a bill
  4. Dieting
  5. Cleaning out the garage
  6. Growing in relationships
  7. Writing a book

 

Are you being held back in some way?  Facing an obstacle?  In need of a breakthrough? Pray about it!  Reflect and listen to your heart!  Seek counsel.  KNOCK DOWN THAT WALL!
