I am marveling at what God does when I get still. When I stand. I don’t need to work it out, but watch what happens when he is brought in on any matter. Today, just stand. Stand on his word, stand on his love for you, stand with his peace. Stand and watch what God is doing. enough for now.

Stay Strong

Isn't odd that a change in atmosphere can mess up your health? Maybe not odd, but in a similar way a change in community can mess up your spiritual health. Too often we don't think about that. We go about our way trying to pray, trying to be compassionate to others, trying to love one another and it happens. We find ourselves in a different community - of believers. But this community does not have the same values, and if we are not strong, we can slide into their habits. Oh my goodness. What can we do?

Stop, get direction- from Holy Spirit. Stay prayerful, and become the strength, the one who draws others to God and not the one who draws other to self. Stay strong in following Holy Spirit's guide. enough for now.

Too Hard Not To

As I was finishing my sermon on forgiveness, this song by Tina Campbell came on-“Too Hard Not To.” I encourage you to listen to it today. You think it’s too hard to forgive, but it’s too hard not to forgive. Oh how true. That is not what God has for you. We forgive as we are forgiven. We forgive and are forgiven. Let that permeate your spirit. enough for now.

Living in the App

We have been relegated to living an abbreviated life- living in the app. Apps are our quick source, quick fix; but when we really need more, we have to go to the website. And on the website we have so much more available to us than what we have on the app.

What does it mean? We have used a day of worship as the day we get it all done. . . living in the app. but in order to receive the fullness of life that is promised we have to check in with the source. We have to walk getting all that is offered, and not just by checking in one day a week. Holy Spirit guides us along the way and cannot be fully received in the app- in an abbreviated life. Stay connected. There will be times that you will use the app, but stay with the source and you can live a more complete life. enough for now.

Don’t Let It

You are more than you know. You can make it. Find your joy in your peace. Get your peace from God. When you do that, nothing can stop you. Not even you -when you let Holy Spirit guide you. Yes, your life is yours to live fully without the negativity of “it.” 

Don’t let your “It” deter you from what God has for you. There will be down times just as there will be up times. Make sure you are clear that the down times are not in your mind only. You are more than you know. You are loved more than you know. Your life has meaning. Live it to the fullest following Holy Spirit’s guide. Watch what God is doing in your life, and celebrate! enough for now.

Do It

Distraction will sneak up- just like that. You cannot let it lull you into where you do not want to be. Stay focused, stay secure in what you are trying to accomplish, and do it. enough for now.

What Brings Joy?

I talked with my grandson on his twentieth birthday. What brings me joy? That I have three grandsons who are doing well and safe. That the middle one is twenty today. That I have been a part of nurturing him and watching him grow. That I have a loving son who loves his sons and who loves me.  What brings me joy? That my younger sister celebrated her birthday day before yesterday and that she is well and now on a trip for her job. Family brings me joy. Friends bring me joy. Talking and laughing, crying and supporting them brings me joy. The love God has for me brings me peace, and out of that peace I can enjoy those th8nhsntat bring me joy.

What brings joy to you? Write it down. Look at how it can spread. I only wrote a little of mine. Believe me- there is more. There is more for you also. Go ahead get started. enough for now.

Joy in Living

I was so encouraged and inspired by a conversation with a close friend this morning. Life is indeed what we make it. We can have joy - true joy, regardless of whatever circumstance we find ourselves. That joy emanates from the peace we can have. That peace comes from God. Our lives are meant to be joyous - not necessarily happy all the time. But a real peace and a deep joy. With that, all seasons of life can be smoothly experienced.

What season are you in? Find the real joy of the season and experience every bit of what God has for you. enough for now.

See the New Day

See this day. No, not as ‘just another day’, but a day of great expectations. A new day in your journey. A day to see, hear, and do marvelous things. See this day as your gift and unwrap it a little at a time. Don’t just pull the wrapping off. Treasure how it has been wrapped for you- for this moment. Enjoy all tatthis day has for you. enough for now.
