Created Anew

We are consistently in the process of being made new. Bear patiently with that process. Work on doing those things that He planned long ago for you to do. As we work, we learn more and more. You are indeed being made new with each passing day.

A Confident Hope

 

I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. ~ Ephesians 1:18-20 NLT

Thanksgiving Week Day 7

 

 

David’s Prayer of Praise
Then David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly:
“O Lord, the God of our ancestor Israel, may you be praised forever and ever! Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength.
O our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name!  ~ 1 Chronicles 29:10-13 NLT

Learning to Cultivate

I desire to learn how to cultivate a life that is in line with how I was created.

So many things get in the way of planting generously. I don’t want to give in to those things.

I want to sow lots of seed so that I reap a generous crop and a fruitful life of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

I need God’s help to do this consistently.

It’s a good thing that He is always available to me!

Why Do Bad Things Happen?

In the past few months, there’s been flooding, fires, hurricanes, as well as a mass shooting! It’s a lot to process.

Of course I wish that bad things would never happen but there is another side to them.

When catastrophes happen, people come together. People help. People pray. There is no racism. People simply help other people. And…this is where you see God even in the midst of bad things. God helps people get through bad situations and He uses people as His hands and feet.

Bad events help us to realize just how vulnerable we are as human beings. When things are going good, we forget. We feel strong. We do whatever we want. We even argue over petty things. But when things turn bad, we feel hurt deeply—our own and other peoples’. Our only thought becomes, How can I help? And this is a very good thing! Helping people is an important part of life.

Life is precarious and precious. Cherish it with all your heart. Honor the Creator and love people through the good times and the bad.
