Teach Me Patience!

Why do we look for answers with impatience?  Why do we struggle with faith not knowing for sure in our hearts that he will show up?  We worry… we get impatient… we want our way, in our time.  We look to our own understanding with no regard to his ways… his time.  We make our plans without regard to his plan or asking for his guidance.  The world has taught us to want it now.  He teaches us to be faithful and trust.   Holy spirit guide me in his ways…  in his time… that my faith may be strong.  Allow me to have an unwavering spirit as I wait patiently on him and his answers.  Lead me Oh Lord!!

God Has No Limits!

Why do we insist on putting God in a box so we can understand?  
When thoughts of God take us out of our comfort zone we rationalize his ways… his power… his infinite wisdom.  We try to put him into terms that make sense to us.  I don’t truly understand how gravity works but I trust it.  This week I was interviewed by a science show about the formation of the world we live in.  WHY is it so hard to believe that the theories of the scientific world and God can coexist?  Could God not form the earth in a manner as to prove science and also be true to his word?  I for one will never put limits on our father and his power.  It’s not my worry to prove it one way or another.  It is simply my honor to love and trust him.  Colossians 1:15-18

It’s About Love!

His question was “how often do you read your bible and when do you pray”?  As I ministered to his needs my simple answer was “What does it matter”?  God does not want us to keep a check list or a time table on how often we do things.  We are not making points simply by reading the word or praying for so long everyday.  As followers we have to start living and be lead in the Holy Spirit.  When we set up laws and lists. When we place demands on ourselves with regards to obedience then it becomes more about work and less about love.  It should more about love and less about rules.  Deep love for him will lead you to his word and to his side.  Not to list and record keeping.

Luke 20: 46 – 47

Deeper and Deeper

Deeper and deeper.  I never knew that as I studied and prayed more each day that I would see his face… I would look into his eyes… his heart.  Now MY heart is not mine to keep but wholly his.  As a common man I fear that he will lose faith in me.  That he will see the ugliness of my sin and turn away.  Then I return to his face, his eyes, his heart.  I look to the promises of his word and I remember that I am in his hands.  I remember his deep abiding grace. His love.  I remember I am the lost sheep he so desperately longs for. What an amazing Savior!!

Where is Hope?

Where do you find your hope?  I listened from afar and I could tell she was upset and worried. As she helped with my purchase I simply asked “I know you have a struggle how can I pray for you?”  She told me of her brain illness as she started to cry.  I told her I would pray and that God could heal her if it be his will.  I could tell her hope hung on that truth.  Hope… such an important word and emotion.  A part of our heart that allows us to live thru another day.  Hope comes from God.  Hope comes from Christ and his promises.  Hope comes from the resurrection.  Without hope the human spirit dies.  Without Jesus the same is true.  This sweet lady needs to hold on to both.  I think maybe we all should.
I Love You!
