Words



I felt it slipping out of my hand, seconds later, crashing into the zinc. One of my favorite vision pots - glass was everywhere … splintered glass ...chunks of glass … glass in all shapes … glass in all sizes. I loved cooking with that pot. I stared in shock wishing I could put the pieces back together. It was too late. Like my words sometimes.  Brash words, that slip unexpectedly through the door1 of my lips of clay. Words I wish had never spoken.

Father let my words always be pleasant2 and gracious,3
                             In Jesus name,
                                    
                             Amen!

The Untold Story vs The Told Story


    Recently a visiting pastor shared a very significant message at my church.
He talked about how many of us have an untold story that we would prefer to share with NO ONE! The good news though, he said, was that our Heavenly Father has answers for these untold stories ~ the told story of what He has done for us.
This is how I immediately saw myself  >>> this equation:
               my untold story =
                   guilt  +  shame  +  regret ...

            His told story:


     forgiveness =  freedom2  =  peace3  ...
“Father, today, I give you my untold story, and you know what? I  never want it back," in Jesus name,
                        Amen!

Warning - 2010



A recent warning from the Abundant Life Enrichment Center advised that the following may pose a serious threat when moving into 2010:
Fear1   …
                 Anger2
                                 Unforgiveness.3
These have been known for their destructive effects on victorious living. It is highly recommended to avoid at all cost if planning to experience a successful and productive New Year. Immediate information about how to evade any of the above safely and quickly is referenced below. For more comprehensive details, kindly refer
to pages of the Abundant Life Enrichment Manual ~ The Holy Scriptures.
Further support may be obtained by connecting with a local Bible soaked church of choice..
                              May you embrace life 'more abundantly'4 in 2010.

New Year Resolutions


The beginning of a New Year is an ideal time to propose some life changing resolutions. Over the years, most of mine have had the same trend: exercise more regularly … include more fruit and vegetables in my diet … eat less double churned butter pecan ice cream! This year, I have added two to the list: be more patient with others, and share Jesus more often.
My dad shared Jesus with me at a very early age. That sharing was the foundation built on by those who followed; pastors, Sunday school teachers, Christian radio and television, Christian family and friends, and the reading of many, many books, including the Holy Scriptures.
My dad is now in heaven, but I do not believe that he ever imagined what a life changing impact those moments of sharing would have had in my life.
“The greatest honor you can do for anyone is to introduce him or her to Jesus Christ.”1
 
“Father this year, help me to keep my New Year resolutions, but most of all, help me to share your love with others boldly, even though I may never see the life changing results in their lives.”
                                    In Jesus name,
                                                Amen.
