"Yes I will rise
Out of these ashes rise
From this trouble I have found
And this rubble on the ground I will rise
Cause He Who is in me
Is greater than I will ever be
And I will rise" ~Shawn McDonald

What are the ashes in your life?
He wants you out of them.

"Those who hope in The Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary." - Isaiah 40:31

God, Thank You for the reminder to hand over our ashes to You and You alone.

God's State of The Union...

What if God were to appear and give His State of the Union Message....Maybe in that message, He would talk about important issues facing us....He might even offer His ideas on solving the nation's problems,
including suggestions for new laws and policies....
He might know of better ways to behave...better ways to treat each other

Wouldn't that be something?!
He might read a speech or talk from His Heart.

If we were all sitting there, would we pay attention or take heed of His wisdom?

Or would we be too busy texting...or checking our emails.

When He was finished, would there be an opposing response?
Would it be from you?
Would it be from me?
Would we be the ones offering God our ideas and solutions on how to improve things?

Sounds absurd doesn't it?
Absurd, but familiar...

It appears He has written a "speech"...we refer to it as The Bible.

God, Thank You for continuing to deliver Your Opinions, Ideas & Desires through Your Word.
May the "state of our union" be pleasing in Your sight.

Pinterest, I wish I could quit you.
You are taking up alot of my time.

Example.... Lloyd Dobbler. In your eyes, The light the your eyes, I am complete.
This is the reason I was late to lunch?
Things hit an all time low this am, when I actually stopped to look at these.Kakie and Carrie will be thrilled to know I am making them for Fiesta.
(I don't think Lisa will wear one.)

Of course the best part of Pinterest, is the virtual buffet that I am in line for.Krispy Kreme had a baby with a box of brownies...and gave birth to....
Krispy Kreme Brownies.

Are you kidding me???!!
In my mind- with all the food I am "enjoying," I am within 5 minutes from having Montel Williams show up to "tow" my 500 pound tush out of the house.

"How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth"
~Psalm 119:103

If I spent as much time in The Bible as I do on social media....the possibilities would be endless.

God, Thank You for the reminder that your word is sweeter than a Krispy Kreme Brownie.

Precious Life...

We dealt with three suicides in the past 7 days....
So, here is what I have to say.....well, what God has to say.
He has a plan and a purpose for every life, your's included.
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~Jeremiah 29:11

When things go wrong or life overwhelms you?
"You will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." ~Jeremiah 29:12

Many times in life, there are no words...although there are notes left behind.
There is no sense to be made of things...although some may try.
There are no answers...although there are multitudes of questions.

Thanks be to God at those exact times...and all others-God is still speaking.

God, Thank You for our precious lives.

Take Heart...

"Jesus didn't come so we wouldn't be unsure anymore,
He came so we wouldn't be afraid anymore" ~Bob Goff

Love this-
Jesus flat out said, no bones about it..."in this world you will have trouble."
but lest we forget,
He also flat out said, "but take heart, I have overcome the world" -John 16:33

He has the tightened the fear nozzle. Let's leave it alone.

God, Thank You for constantly reminding us, that there is nothing to fear.
