LOOK UP FOR THE ANSWER!

December 14, 2016

Why do we make Christmas such a conundrum when all we need to do is open our hearts and follow His lead?

The Work of the Master’s Hand

November 12, 2016

Not a pretty picture! Raw diamonds do not look like much until they are broken, shaped, cleaned, polished . . . the work of the Master’s hand makes all the difference.

 


BE BORN ANEW!

December 10, 2015

Jesus sat around the campfire with thieves, murderers, and other down trodden, smelly “low life” folks. He loved them and their lives changed. He set the example we are to follow. As we celebrate His birth, let us be born anew as well! – Martha L Shaw

 

 


I Have Decided!

September 14, 2015

I just read the words “hope is a way of seeing.” In a physical sense, how I see may seem beyond my control yet it is not. My heart soul, and mind are involved. I can look out my window and see untidy landscaping I am unable to change or I can look up at branches of leaves swaying in the September mild breeze, at the blue sky, the absence of clouds, and feel blessed. My choice!

Can I get an AMEN?

June 10, 2015

Not sure how it is where you are, but where I am the rumble of distant thunder today was overtaken by sunshine. ONCE AGAIN the darkness could NOT overtake the Light! Amen! – Martha L Shaw

Nailed – A Lent Acrostic Poem

February 26, 2015

No sin left unforgiven

At the last day

If you but ask.

Let Him fill you with His grace . . .

Eternal life with Him.

Do you love me?” I do.

Lighten Up! – A Quote For Tuesday

June 24, 2014

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.Matthew 5:14,16

Wow, what a day yesterday was!  So much going on in my life!  How about you?  Ever feel like “all at once” and wonder “how am I going to . . . ” fill in the blanks.  Some good, some “I can’t fix this” and some “Lord, what’s up with this?”

Know what?  He’s in it!  It sure is too heavy to carry . . . alone!  Hey, I wasn’t meant to do that!!!  Jesus wants me to lighten up!  Hey, in more ways than one!  I only need to carry my part and the heavier part is HIS – so I’m working hard on handing things over.  Guess what?  The more He and I work closely together, the lighter I feel!  Know what else?  His radiance reflects on me and through me onto those in darkness!

Isn’t that our purpose?  To reflect Him in all we do?  The good stuff is easy to smile about.  The things in life that are held together with DUCT TAPE?  NO problem!  We will be just fine – Jesus has it covered!  In all things, let your light shine, people!

Lead on, Lord!  I’m ready!
