Memories

just us kids 2 (2) quote

There are times when it seems so easy, natural even, to look back on our past and ask, “What if?” But I’ve come to the realization that we are where we are because of, maybe in spite of, the things, the people, and the circumstances, of our past. Every look, touch, word, and happening helped shape us into who we are and place us where we are today. Me, I love where I am, and I’m at peace with who I am. I have no doubt or fear regarding the future, because it seems the farther I go… the more brightly the path before me is lit. Faith is my light.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

The Sound of Love

sunrise-12-2-2016-quoteTime with God is like drinking coffee. We sip from the cup of hot brew, and when it begins to cool, we refill it so the heat returns. In the mornings, I refill my heart with the warmth of God’s love. This rekindles the fires within me—the desire to know Him and be a part of His world and His plan.

It’s just me and God in the morning. We talk and we listen—I to Him and He to me. I read, and I write; He watches and smiles. I’m like a child in my search for His knowledge.

I lay my requests before Him each morning, then wait expectantly as I go about my day. Sometimes… I can feel His loving gaze.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

A Little Help Here, Please

I say I’m fearless and strong, and I try to encourage others to be fearless and strong, too. But when someone I love is hurting—whether it is spiritually, mentally, physically, or a combination of any/all of those—it’s hard for me to tell them to be fearless and strong. I often wish I could take their pain upon myself, but then I wonder if I could even handle it.

Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

The Truth Is…

It appears truth has become what we want to believe in order to justify our actions. Apparently, the end justifies the means; if a lie gets us the results we want, then it’s our truth. But people aren’t blind; we might fool them temporarily, but they will soon know the truth of our hearts by how we live. It’s been said our children learn more from watching how we live our lives than they learn from what we tell them. I agree.

sunlight trees 2 (2) quote

When we love Jesus, we will live in the light, and He—The Truth—will set us free!

If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and don’t tell the truth. 1John 1:6

Big Buts!

I’m a positive person, but sometimes my big but gets in the way. I’ll start off thinking it’s going to be a good day, then say, “But! What if it rains?” I let my big but lower my expectations by anticipating something bad.

clouds and trees 2 (2)

We mustn’t allow our faith to be diminished by a big but! We must proclaim our trust in God and kick buts out of our vocabulary! God is for us, and there’s no but about it! I could go on, but… I think you get my point.

He didn’t do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Matthew 13:58
