Turkey All the Time!

The grocery store we shop at sells fully-cooked turkey breasts in their deli section, and every now and then, Sherry and I will buy one and fix a Thanksgiving dinner. We did so a few days ago, and it was delicious! But more than just the wonderful meal, it gave us pause to think how blessed we are that we can celebrate and give thanks on not just any day, but every day. We are blessed, and our joy is boundless.

No matter your circumstance today, I can assure you the Lord is good, He loves you, and His love endures forever; He will never leave you, nor forsake you, and His faithfulness continues through all generations.

Thanksgiving is not a one day thing, it’s an every day thing!

 

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100

Let’s Color Our World!

I believe the thing God desires most is to be loved by us, and when we love Him and His love is shared with others through us, it gives Him great joy. It makes me think of those maps we see on cell phone commercials; you know, the ones with maps colored to show all the areas the provider’s service covers. I think God has a map of the world, and He wants to see every inhabited space colored with His love. And, each time another space is filled He celebrates because it means another believer is spreading His love. You would think the whole world would be covered by now, but sadly it isn’t. So:

I’m Sure

I can’t even imagine all the things Jesus did that we don’t have a record of. The story of Jesus, as told in the Bible, is a condensed version of His life, and I’m quite sure He did many more miracles than are documented.

BELIEVE IT!

day 2 - 6 QUOTEWhat would this world be like if God wasn’t in it? Well, think on this: If God were not in the world, love would not be in the world.

Yes, there is evil and greed, murder and mayhem, but there is also love. God is here. And He is in control. I know, especially when bad things happen, we sometimes wonder how God can be in control. But it is at those times we must turn away from the bad, and focus on the good—God and His love for us.

I believe we can go boldly into each day without fear, knowing our God goes into the day with us to fight against all that will come against us, and… He will give us victory.

Believe it!

… For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” Deuteronomy 20:3-4

What’s In Your Heart?

River walk 3 - quoteI used to wonder how a person could pray without ceasing then I realized prayer is not always about asking for something, and it should actually more often be about praising God and thanking Him. Praise and thanksgiving are prayer, and that’s how we can pray without ceasing! God is not complicated. Keep it simple; focus on the good stuff, constantly thanking and praising Him for His love and faithfulness. He not only hears the prayers that come out of our mouths; He hears our hearts.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1st Thessalonians 5:16-18

Keep On Smilin’

I’ve been there; weak and worn out, beat down, with no hope of things getting better. Yes, there have been times when I felt I had nothing to look forward to and no prospects for the future.
