So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught and overflowing with thankfulness. Col 2:6-7
I was about to read my devotional and a prayer struck me. So I prayed, I read the verse and then an aroma wafted by my nose. I realized I hadn’t taken a sip of my coffee yet and voilà I was having coffee with Jesus!
The prayers of the day are many today, as everyday I guess, but today there is illness and spirit that need to be healed. I pray that the Lord will hear my prayer and bring peace to not only me, but those others who are also praying and needed answers.
Bless us this day oh Lord with peace and love for one another as we should love you! Fill our hearts with happiness, kindness, compassion and the zeal of David! Empty our hearts of loneliness, sickness, hatred and complaining. Thank you Lord for not forgetting about me. I am only one and you love me…
Ephesians 3:17-19 So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, *may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ *and to know this love that surpasses knowledge- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
It’s like a love poem. I found it while reading “Reduce me to Love” by Joyce Meyer and I feel like it really is all love. I hope you find what makes you happy today and do something to make someone else happy today, just because.
I have just watched a fantastic heartwarming movie. The Letter Writer. I hadn’t ever witnessed a preview previously, but caught a glimpse on Netflix. It looked good, so gave it a try. It is so sentimental and symbolic. If you are wondering why you exist you should watch this movie, pray and listen for God to tell you! You are here for a reason you just have to stop being so stubborn and listen for the path that God wants you on. And remember to bless someone else during the course of your day.
This book I am reading talked about the dare devil who would walk across the Niagra Falls on a tight rope. He decided to do one better and told everyone in town that the following saturday he would push someone across the rope in a wheelbarrow.
He was standing outside the pub when he heard one gentleman tell another I believe he can do it and I have this much money to bet. He was amused so he went to the gentleman and said he was so glad the man had so much faith in him, because he needed someone to get in the wheelbarrow! HA!!!
I laughed out loud. That is a great visual picture of what we are supposed to do when God nudges us to follow him. We say all the time we are believers, but are we really? Are we willing to get in the wheelbarrow and be pushed across the millions of gallons of water falling over a cliff? Really?
I sometimes have trouble talking about my faith with people I know and trust. Am I going to put myself out their for perfect strangers to ridicule me too? That is what God wants us to be willing to do. Faith, belief, trust, love… The end result is that God will have a good result. Faith, belief, trust, love…. That is what we are ordered to do. If we don’t we have nothing.
I touched someones life. I didn’t jsut make them smile or give them something to make them happy. I actually mad a difference in a little girls life.
One of my pris has a more than somewhat complicated home life – to say the least. Her Grandma came up to me yesterday at church and said that she talks about me constantly. She was so proud because I told the class that I would be at their spring program at school. She told her Grandma that only two people came to see her perform. Her mom and me. The anxiety I experience each Wednesday when I am rushing off to church and not cooking my family supper has dissapeared. I have made a difference. I am doing my job!
I am beginning a new book today. It is called The Last Lecture. The man in it has been given only a short period to live. He has a wife and three young children. He gave a lecture at his college and wrote this book for his children as they grow older. They were all very young, probably too young to understand the loss, but he didn’t want to be forgotten, so he wrote too them.
With all the worries we let creep into our midst how can we learn to just enjoy the day? I often hear people say, “Live for the moment! Don’t worry about tomorrow, with it comes a whole new set of worries!”
But I find it hard to live every minute like it’s my last, presumably because it’s not. I find it hard to remember to enjoy every second, because it might be my last. I wish I could. I might have to add that to my twenty wishes and work hard on it.
My baby is 4 weeks old tomorrow! How did that happen? I have no idea. It has gone so fast already. He is starting to smile a little and that is so cute! He really turns his head when someone is talking to him.
Mitch keeps telling me that I am spoiling him too much, because I am holding him all the time. I really can’t help it. He is just to cute!
I really need to figure out when we are going to baptise him. Our church doesn’t baptise they dedicate, so we are going to do both. I will probably have to have the baptism at Oiland and that will be just fine. I will ask pastor Bob if he would consider it at our church first. It can’t hurt right?
I better get my butt in gear or he won’t fit into his baptismal gown. He is growing so fast I can’t keep him in clothes! It’s so funny how chunky he is. He really likes to eat which comes from the Kjersten in him. My people like to eat.
I started to teach a Missionettes class at our church. Last week was my first week and I was more than somewhat nervous! This week went so great! The girls are 8 year olds and they are so sweet. They love to read and volunteer! That age is so different from what I am used to.
They want so much to be accepted and loved for who they are and what they accomplish.
We are on our Prayer badge and I think it’s going great. I read three stories to them last night and by the third one they had had enough of that. They get squirly if we go to long without something fun to do.
