Great scripture here in James 4!
We are not guaranteed tomorrow! Enjoy this day as a gift from God and his beauty all around you. Find 3 things to be thankful for. I’ve always tried to do that when I want to get too far ahead of God and do it myself and operate in my limited strength instead of Gods amazing power!
Our life is a mist….the Bible reminds us……here for a little while (in terms of eternity) and then gone….God wants us to make our time count when we are here! Lord Jesus help us serve you with our actions and our words!
God gives is the definition of Sin here- “if anyone knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them”. Ouch. That’s kinda close to home. Once God reveals himself and what he wants us to do it’s up to us to act and move….
I’m sure glad God is in control of my life and I will give him full surrender every day!!
Church should be a exciting, thrilling experience! Anytime we are able to be in the presence of God with other believers and worship Him, all is well. There is something about the anticipation of being with like minded people. Going to church should not be boring, routine or seem weird. It should come as natural as stepping out of your house into Gods house, only with more of expecting to feel and sense his presence. The upbeat music, the raising of hands and voices, the inward look at ourselves, all these sacred things make church a highlight of the week. It should be like icing on the cake of our relationship with our Creator. We practice His presence all week long and then on the weekend we celebrate Him with others. There is nothing more satisfying than watching the life transformation of a persons heart and life. It is why we do what we do. It’s the heart and soul of life!!
I look forward to being a part of a greater work in leading others to Christ. Life is not about ourselves, it’s about others. When we can invest in the lives of others, we can freely give what God has so graciously given to us.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!
We had our first Outreach Movie Night tonight at Broken Arrow Church of the Nazarene. We showed the movie “Up” and it was a success. Free Popcorn, good fellowship and of course, a good movie. Our family took a van down to the Indian Springs Apartments complex tonight and picked up some kids. We picked up 3 brothers and another 10 year old boy named Conner. Conner waited for us for 30 minutes before we showed up. He was really excited to come with us. We were all blessed to be able to serve these kids. It reminds me that we are look outside of ourselves and to try to be a blessing to someone else. Its when we take our focus off of ourselves and put them on others, that we truly find joy. What a great reminder, thank you Lord!
