KNOW YOUR PLACE!

September 27, 2016

The phrase “know your place” CAN be greatly encouraging!  Many of us living in this world spend time and energy being so discouraged, but take heart!

If you are still this side of the veil, you are UNFINISHED!  God  is with you and has great plans for you!  Talk to HIM!

GOT IT ALL TOGETHER?

September 21, 2016

I find myself thinking of what a gift my brokenness can be

if I have given my all to the Lord.

Not only

does His Light shine through the cracks,

but oh the mosaic He creates

with all our bits and pieces!

STYLISH, ME?

September 21, 2016

And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[  Matt 22:39

There are so many sources for defining “stylish” for us and yet I see a world defined more by insecurity.  It may seem odd to some, but the verse from Matthew immediately came to mind as I considered this.  Does the length of my hair, my nails, or my nose define either my style or my ability to receive and share love?

It is no accident that the verse places equal  importance on loving our neighbors and self love!  I do not believe we can serve the Lord and reflect Him to others if we do not love all whom God created and this includes ourselves.  Obeying the verse above supersedes any suggestion or definition of “stylish” we are urged to reflect!

 REFLECT HIM! REFLECT LOVE!

1 Timothy 4:4

Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it

but receive it with thanks.
