I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 7-16-11

In today’s Daily Encouragement, I talked about how worrying is basically a waste of time and accomplishes little or nothing. I ended the encouragement by saying “we should dwell on the good things, attack the bad things, and do the best you can every day.” That’s very easy for me to say; but not always easy for me, or anyone, to do.

I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 7-15-11

I talk a lot about my yard and the beautiful flowers in it. In this morning’s Daily Encouragement, I mentioned the crepe myrtles in our front yard and commented how badly we need rain. It’s the same way all over Texas, worse in some than in others. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 7-14-11

In today’s Daily Encouragement I said: …we should be content with who we are at this very moment and move into the next moment with our eyes and hearts focused on God, so that he might make any changes He deems necessary. He has a plan for each of us, and our part in His plan is not to be chosen or contrived by us. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 7-13-11

In today’s Daily Encouragement I said: When we love God and make Him—not His laws—our focus, He will become a part of us, and His laws will be in us.

My point is we should not put the cart before the horse. Common sense tells us if the horse is behind the cart, we aren’t going anywhere. Read the rest of this entry »

The story I posted today, Did You Hear That, was about a strange noise we had been hearing at our house. The mystery was solved, when we saw the pesky woodpecker tapping our chimney cap with its beak. I asked if anyone else had any strange noises, but only got one response. Come on, now! Y’all aren’t going to tell me I’m the only one who hears strange noises… are ya? Read the rest of this entry »

I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 7-11-11

In my story, He’s Untied My Shoe, I state the following: When something happens that seems to disrupt my life and change the course of things, I try to think of it as God’s way of slowing me down, and I look around to see what I’m missing.

This line of thought goes right along with the philosophy behind my book, Be Still… and know that I am God. The title of the verse comes from the Bible (Psalm 46:10), and it is the simplest and best advice and encouragement I can give to you. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 7-10-11

In today’s Daily Encouragement, I said this: When we can arrive at the point in our lives where we begin our day with “show me the way, Lord,” we have at last taken the important step of putting our hope in Him. I think when we arrive at that realization—that point of trust—we will be able to stop chasing our dreams and allow them to catch up with us.

I read the Daily Encouragement to Sherry each morning, as we sit at one of the tables on our back deck. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 7-9-11

In this morning’s Daily Encouragement, I talked about how we seem to constantly wander off the path God would have us follow. Sherry and I did some wandering today, but it was a good kind of wandering. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 7-8-11

I made the following statement in today’s Daily Encouragement: According to what I read, hear, and see, the world is reeling in a chaotic time like we have never seen before. It appears to me that the world we live in is virtually on fire with hate and greed, and its foundations are crumbling beneath our feet. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 7-7-11

Change is sometimes the thing about God that most frightens people; we are afraid that the change will entail giving up things and becoming a different person.

This was a part of my daily encouragement today, and I believe it bears repeating. I think too many times, people run from God rather than to him, because they are afraid of what they will have to do if they become a part of His family. I find this terribly sad, but I certainly understand. I felt the same way. Read the rest of this entry »
