Living Beyond Yourself

While I have a brief moment during lunch today, I just want to share with you a thought I had on yesterday evening. Live beyond yourself!

We get caught up in so many things that hijack our thoughts and actions keeping us from doing and being all that God wants. You may be think that nothing is keeping you from doing God's work but maybe you should ask yourself am I doing what he wants to the fullest.

We get caught up in finding Mr. or Miss Right (by the away they could be right under your nose) while Jesus Christ is waiting with a heap of blessings in store but we are only focusing on the things we want, not on Him and building a deeper relationship with Him. We want promotions and increase but what are we doing for God and His kingdom to be deserving of His promotion and blessings.

It is time that we live beyond ourselves. Live outside of our small mindedness and shallowness. Get out of your box!!!!! There is so much for us to do and so much that God wants to bless us with. The sky is the limit!

Be Anxious for Nothing

Proverbs 13:12 KJV
"Hope deferred maketh the heart sick; but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life".

Ok everyone, I am sure you, like I, have been anxious for God to answer a pray. We wonder if the Lord hears us. Which He says in His word that He does. God does not have a cellphone were He hits the ignore button when we call on Him. But we do have to wait for Him to answer. We must not let anxiety about the situation over take us. Even when your heart is sick, down cast, while you are praying for what you are hoping for, remember that your desire is on the way and when it comes it will be the tree of life to you. It will bring you joy and happiness but most importantly it will be God's will for you.

It is the weekend

Hello All,

I am so ready for this weekend I don't even know what to do! Right now I am at play rehersal for our annual Singles Ministry play, but all I can think about it sitting on the couch with my dog Gizmo. Can't Wait!!!

Our God is so funny guys. One day I actually said, "Lord if I can't go on a date can I at least have a dog"? 5 days later I had Gizmo. One of the quickest answers to prayer I have ever had. LOL!! I guess He was like no problem. LOL!!!

What funny stories do you have about our wonderful God?

Big God, Big Job, Big Blessings

Hello All!

When was the last time you thought about how BIG our God is? Really! The fact that the "...Earth is His footstool". Isaiah 66:1 That He is Alpha and Omega the Beginning and the End. The depiction of His throne room in Revelation chapter 4 is like WOW!

Why am I bringing up this point? Because we need to meditate on the fact that since our God is such a big God then He also has big things for us to do. Remember little becomes MUCH!!! So whatever God has given you to do please don't sit on it because you think it is to small to matter do it! Therefore however you feel about your God given job remember He has actually given you a Big Job to do.

I have a sign hanging by my desk that says the, "The Lord is my real boss". So since my Big God is my boss then he must give BIG PROMOTIONS! He says in His wonderful word, "Promotion comes neither from the east, nor west, nor south." Psalm 75:6. (Also read verse 7) Promotion comes from God! So is the work that you are doing for God, even if you think it is small, worthy of His promoting you? Are we giving our all? HMMMM!

So what is the Big Job our Big God has given you?

This Is Only The Begining!!!

How awesome is our God!! He exceeds all of my expectations!

While typing this first blog I am feeling completely overwhelmed by God's favor on me. ( Faith And Virtue Openly Rewarded) My prayer for each of you who are beginning this journey of becoming saltier salt and brighter lights, is that you and I will give ourselves over to God completely and watch Him do great things through our lives. In Jesus' name, amen!
