No Matter The Cost!

As I handed him a blanket and some money I could see the dirt.  I could smell the days on the street.  I could sense the  loneliness.  As I drove away I thought of all the homeless people I have helped but not one time have I offered a hug.  I told them of the love of Jesus but have I shown it? Then I pictured Jesus washing the feet of his apostles.  I pictured him on his knees wiping away days of dirt and filth.  There is no way to know how long it had been since the man I helped had felt a human touch. Experienced a loving hug.  Christ calls us to move beyond comfort and into a unbridled love.  It’s time to put aside pride and offer Christ love to everyone.  No matter the cost.

Behind Us!

HATE…  Such a strong word that seems to be everywhere.  I see hate between people over ethnicity.  Hate between people over political differences.  Hate  because you believe different than I do.  I see hate because your life style doesn’t agree with mine… or your sexual preferences I don’t agree with.  Enough!!!  Our Savior, our King, our Lord, our Jesus, came to destroy hate.  He rose from the grave to prove that hate has no place in this world.  He rose to show us all that love can shine a light that destroys the dark.  Love can shine a light that puts satan and the hate he produces right where it  belongs.

BEHIND US!!!!

When God Shows Up!

I went because I love the people who run it.  I was simply providing music not looking for anything special.  Just being helpful.  Then it happened…  God showed up with one of his angels.  An angel in the form of a four year old blind  girl leading a little horse.  Such a small petite frame but she filled the arena with joy and blessing beyond measure.  As on cue and by Gods hand a song started “Ordinary Miracle”.  The tears started to flow as I thought of what this little girl has to endure.  Tears… because I take to much for granted.  Each day we experience “ordinary miracles” that we don’t even notice.  But if you keep your eyes open, and look with your heart, God will show up.  He will bring an extra special miracle with him and it could change your life.  It has for me.

What God Wants To Hear!

 The presence of God is not a place to bypass your emotions, but a place to process them! Are you angry… tell our Savior.  Are you disappointed… tell our Lord.  Are you worried… tell our Maker.  Do you feel like complaining… tell God about your complaint.  You simply can not fight the battles of your heart with your mind.  Regardless of who you are the devil has strongholds in your thoughts.  Inside your head… your mind will battle with your spirit.   You can only fight those strongholds, with your mouth, by pouring it out to the one who understands.  So when you pray let God know your needs.  Shout, whisper, or talk as a friend, but let your mouth say what God so longs to hear! 

Philippians 4:6-7

I Love You!
