AMAZING GRACE!

Do you live each minute, of each day, with a heart of praise or do you wait for everything to go your way?  He had faced so many hardships.  Sickness, stoning, beatings and prison.  Thru it all his heart of thanksgiving never wavered.  His praise to our Savior never faltered. The apostle Paul was giving thanks even as he was beheaded.

Do you have a bed to sleep in? – God’s Grace.  Do you have money in the bank? – God’s Grace.  Do you have food to eat? – God’s Grace.  Are you addiction free? –  God’s Grace.   Do you have people that love you? – God’s Grace.  Do you have a job? – God’s Grace.  Everything we have, everything we own, every blessing in our life is because of God’s Amazing Grace.  Pride says we did it.  Pride says we are the makers of our life.  Truth is – EVERYTHING in your life and mine is by God’s grace.  His AMAZING GRACE!!

You Say You Love Me!

My Heavenly Father!

You say you love me but I don’t know how to be your child.  You say you have grace untold for me but I don’t deserve it.  You fill my life with favor but I don’t know why.  I try each day to make you proud.  To be your hands… your feet… your  love.  I try with unwavering devotion to put a smile on your face but I fall so pitifully short.  My sin makes me want to hide.  Then you wrap me in your love.  You fill my soul with the warmth of your embrace.  You peer into my heart and without hesitation you tell me that I don’t have to know how to be your child.  All I have to do is accept and love you.  What an amazing Father.  What an amazing Savior you are!  Father guide me down the path you would have me to follow.  The path that leads straight to you. 

Ephesians 2:8 & 9

I love You!

Purpose, Priority and Passion

As I listened to his ability on the piano the tears started to flow. He played with  such passion and such purpose.  Many people can play the piano but only a few find the passion. I then thought of the fact that many of us know Jesus but only a few know him with passion and purpose. God will not provide provision without purpose…  without priority… without passion.  Purpose for the life he gave you.  Purpose for giving him glory.  Priority for the love of him.  Priority for making him first.  Passion for the love of others. Passion for being his hands and feet.  Learn to live with purpose, with priority, with passion and watch as he provides provision.

Romans 12:4-8

I Know Him!

I had my blinker on.  I was moving forward and trying not to crowd… no luck.  No one was letting me in the slow moving traffic.  People looked… people noticed… but they wanted to be first and besides what would they gain by letting me in. If only I could see someone I knew, they would let me in.  Then I thought of the day when I will stand at the gates of heaven.  I will have tried to do what God ask of me.  I will have moved in the right direction but what do I have to offer God?  How will he benefit by letting me in?  Then I will see the one I  know.  I will see my loving Savior, Jesus.  He will open the gates, spread his arms and say “doesn’t matter what you have to offer.  I love you… you love me… so come to me and I will give you rest”

Matthew 11:28

I Love You!
