Be Present

Have you ever felt alone in this world? Maybe the newbie in a new job or moved to a new community?  Have you been out and about running errands and receive and unexpected greeting or gesture of kindness from a perfect stranger?  I certainly have.  How did that make you feel?  If you are like me, your sense of  loneliness departed you if only for a moment. Why do you think? You were recognized. You didn't do anything to receive the gesture other than "being present". What a powerful gesture of kindness!  Be present in a stranger's life. Bless someone today. Smile, look at a stranger in the eye and say hello.  It's the little things that you do that open people up. Jesus didn't know a stranger. He engaged others. So should we. "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20 ESV

Responding To The Call

Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I need Him!

I have gained much wisdom at the grace of Father.   I still need Him!  When swept into the torrent of life, when all I really wanted was a taste of it's water I need Him!  When I turned Left but meant to go right I need Him!  When trying to walk away and the Devil pics a fight  I need Him!  When I look in the mirror and then turn in the light  I need Him!  When my heart is heavy because I'm lost in the Forrest of doubt  I need Him!  When living in this world and there is nowhere to escape and I'm ready to step out  I need Him!  At the moment I realize I can no longer live for myself and there a purpose to my being when I've been blinded by the darkness and His eyes give me sight which is beyond my comprehension, or my own ability of seeing I found Him! I love Him! I know Him! I grow in Him!  I NEED HIM!

Joy

"Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart". Psalm 119:111 "Joy can not be hidden. Why? It isn't something to be found. It's not the outcome if a good condition but the evidence if good conditioning." Clint

Cornerstone

"Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed. I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the level." Isaiah 28:16-17 NASB "Behold, I lay in Zion a choice stone, a precious cornerstone, and he who believes in Him will not be disappointed." 1Peter 2:6 NASB "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and My burden is light." Mathew 11:28-30 What is the purpose of the cornerstone? Isaiah prophesied it, and the disciples witnessed it; Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the "cornerstone" of the Church. A cornerstone is a part of the foundation that establishes strength and a level line or plumb line for the rest of the building. Being level is essential in any building stru

Fertilizer Not Crap!

"As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive." Genesis 50:20 NASB I woke thinking of my prayers yesterday morning. I wondered how is it I'm being used by God let alone even being considered for use by Him? I've made poor decisions in my life that lead to regrettable actions against my deeply held conviction of faith in God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I've had a brief separation from Him in the past. Painful!  Bear with me. The thought of crap came to mind. How can my crap, wasted actions, thoughts, etc be used as scripture suggests in Genesis 50?  Animal waste, even human waste has a useful purpose. It can be used as fuel to cook with:  1) "You shall eat it as a barley cake, having baked it in their sight over human dung." ” Then He said to me, “See, I will give you cow’s dung in place of human dung over which you will prepare your bread.” Ezekiel 4:12‭, ‬1
