Show a kindness

How often are we given the opportunity to show a kindness and we let it pass by? Sometimes it is the simplest of things, offering a smile to someone. Yesterday, a man on the street was asking for change; I have change, so I gave it to him at the light. His response, “God bless you”. This stood out to me simply because most of the time the people who are asking for money on the streets don’t really give this type of response when you give something to them. Yet, this gentleman who was asking for so little...

Eye of the Storm

God is doing a new work in you! He is renewing your spirit. Refreshing your mind. He is giving you joy where there once was sorrow. He is preparing a place just for you! Be encouraged! Know that the storm you are going through is only temporary. You will find yourself in its eye, filled with silence and quiet, a time for you to refresh and renew before being swept away again. Fear not! For He is with you! What He has planned for you is joy, peace, prosperity and love. What you receive, make sure you give it...

For you I am praying

My own struggles are often at the forefront of my mind: the challenges I am going to be facing and the journey that I am on. Yet, when I went to pray this morning, my thoughts were for you. For the one who comes across this blog post, I want you to know. I am praying for you. I don’t know your name or your situation. I don’t know where you are or where you are going. I do know that I am praying for you. I am praying that you will allow God to direct your path and your journey. That you will know His love and His light. That you will know you are surrounded by His angels as they keep watch over your each and every step. Know that God is there to give you strength, to lean on, to help you through until you reach the other side. He cares for you, even when you don’t care for yourself. Even when you curse His name for the wrongs you find in the world. He is there. He is there waiting. Offering you hope and peace. He is there to comfort you if you will allow Him. Even if you don’t want Him in your life; for whatever reason, know this one thing: that someone somewhere cares enough to pray for you as you read this....

Back to Basics

Isaiah 40:28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. Tom van Hoogstraten Is this your season of renewal? Have you been worn down by the weight of the world? Are you struggling to make sense of things that are going on in today’s society? I admit to being puzzled by all these ‘movements’ that insist they are seeking change in order to help make the world a better place. Often you find people united under one banner – yet they are all pulling in all different directions. Going nowhere fast. It is confusing to me how people will talk about creating something better and yet often, they are not willing to allow for spiritual purpose in their lives. Christianity is often used as a negative instead of a positive. We find ourselves at the end of the blame stick. We know that we fight against spiritual principalities and powers, that the battle isn’t in the flesh, yet sometimes it doesn’t feel that way, does it? When you are faced with harsh confrontations and there are people who use the label of Christianity to promote some unseen agenda that does not show any of the attributes of the fruits of the Spirit, it can be difficult. I...

Do you know me?

Here is an exercise for today. Go to a mirror and look at yourself. I mean, really, look at yourself. What do you see reflected? Do you see your flaws? Do you feel unhappy with what you see? Do you find yourself picking apart the reflection in the mirror? So many of us won’t even take the time to look at ourselves because all we see are the flaws. Sure, you use a mirror as a necessary evil to prepare for your day. Or for some people, it simply hangs on the wall and you do what you can to avoid it. Here is a reminder: You are beautifully and wonderfully wrought. The physical body not only can change, but does change with time. Sometimes you may not like what you see, but take a moment and look deeper. Look in your eyes and what do you see there? Do you see the reflection of Christ? Do you see the light that has been set aside? Do you see what God sees in you? How perfect you are? You remain perfect just as you are. Psalms 139:14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. Tiko Giorgadze If you look in the mirror and see a stranger, take the time to get to know yourself....
