FOOLISH HUMANS!

July 10, 2019

If I was passed a glass of poison to drink, I would destroy it – not drink it.  God would urge me to.  He loves me.

Oh, the hug He gives!

Why then, when anxiety plagues me in so many painful ways, do I hold onto it and make myself sick?  Lose my joy?  Perhaps cause others to follow this wrong path with me?

Turn to Him, ask for help, turn it over!

 

DO NOT PICK IT BACK UP!

LOVE STORY

June 3, 2019

The story with no ending

and chapters I hunger to forget.

My soul stirs in wonder . . .

Could this be the day?

Trust comes hard for me.

But I need it for it holds the map!

Finally I study it and gasp!

In big letters, You wrote to me!

“Fear not!

I am with you!”

REPENT AND LIVE!

May 13, 2019

You snorted,

“I have something special for you.” she said with a smile.

Your face betrayed you

and you walked away

from the gift she held behind her back.

She never changges, you thought.

Her tears spoke more than you’ll ever know.

It is YOU who must change.

Jesus cried too.

She knows His love

and her heart began to heal.

THINK ABOUT IT

April 13, 2019

Read …Recite …Relationship

Pray,

It should mean something.

It does, doesn’t it?

When we’re finished, we sing and leave!

But . . .

I don’t need to read the book,

I can easily recite.

That counts, right?

Even if I forget the words?

Does it mean something?

How will He know what I said

if I don’t . . .

I’d rather have

A relationship with Him

using my own words

from my heart.

It matters to me

and to Him.

LITTLE WORRIES DON’T HAVE TO GROW LARGER!

January 30, 2019

MOST OF US go to the Lord in prayer only for big things and wonder why we become stressed.  He wants to be in relationship with us, His children!  DO NOT SUFFER IN SILENCE!  REACH OUT TO HIM!

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10

 


SHEEP VERSUS HUMANS

November 3, 2018

When I was a child my Sunday School teacher told us a story of the lost sheep.   I was NOT impressed.  Most of my young classmates thought “oh, they are so cute.”  Not me!

You see, after hearing about still water and green pastures and a shepard, I thought the sheep had a good life and decided the one the shepard had to hunt for to protect him from getting hurt . . . well I thought he was stupid.  Follow the leader, eat, play, sleep, trim the grass . . . ie snack time, repeat next day.so why not do as your told, wandering sheep?

HOW’S YOUR LIFE GOING?

The Bible tells us that we have a Good Shepard and we are His sheep.  All we must do is listen and follow.  How’s that working for you?  As for me, this sheep often neglects to pay attention, thinking MY idea sounded good, “maybe God will support MY idea instead.”  WRONG!  The loving Good Shepard came after me, protected me, loved me, and taught me which way to go WITH HIM.

Ultimately, supporting myself is NEVER going to lead me to the life and purpose God has for me.  I am trying to listen better.
