Live or Die, Believers Win!

Morning Inspiration: For to me, living is for Christ, and dying is even better. Paul, in Philippians 1:21 Even though he suffered greatly, Paul understood the Big Picture. If he were to live, he’d spend every day glorifying Jesus. If he were to die, he’d spend eternity with His Savior. Either way, he knew he couldn’t lose! To those who don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus, this life is all there is, the best they will ever know. They have to fight for pleasure, power & prestige every step of the way. Living & dying for Jesus, bring us much more rewarding & joy filled ways to spend all of our days.

Why We Shouldn't Worry

Morning Inspiration: Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course not! And if worry can’t do little things like that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things? Jesus in Luke 12:25-26 While worry can’t add to the length of our life, it sure can shorten it.
Worrying is something a Christian should never do. It’s a total waste of our time, & detrimental to our health & well being. Jesus tells us again & again to place our trust in Him, & to believe that God will always give us all that we need. Work hard for the good of others. Plan for success. Prepare for the worst...but never worry! Trust that whatever the Lord allows into your pathway of life is there for a good reason. Knowing that Jesus loves us & watches over us, should give us the comfort of a small child in his fathers arms.

Life Is Short!

Morning Inspiration: “Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
Remind me that my days are numbered—
how fleeting my life is. Psalm 39:4 The shocking death of a vibrant, young community leader, who was a loving wife & mother, has many trying to make sense of it all. In a freak accident, a jet engine exploded & the debris blew out the window she was sitting by. There must have been hundreds of other airliners flying around the world at that very moment. 149 passengers were onboard her plane. The odds of her being the one in that spot, at that instant, were astronomical. I can’t even begin to try & explain why it happened. Yet we trust that God can. We could quote many scriptures that we hope will bring some comfort, but I suggest refraining from for now. I prefer this one, that asks the Lord to remind us that our life is incredibly short, & uncertain.
Most never stop to think about life’s brevity, & how precious each day should be. Are there people you need …

Unity In Spite of Disagreement

Morning Inspiration: Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. Ephesians 4:3-4 We are reminded that getting along with other Christians, takes hard work. We are each by our nature, selfish, stubborn & judgmental. We can argue over which method is best for baptism, communion, music...& even the color of the carpet! This Scripture calls us all to unity, even through disagreement. God created amazing variety in animals, people & plants, so it makes sense to think He would welcome a wide range of worship. We honor Him by working alongside the various Christian denominations who do things differently. As long as we all believe the same basic foundations of our faith, we can be united as one through His Holy Spirit. One Savior, Jesus, born of a virgin, to live a sinless life, then be sacrificed for our sin, to be buried…

Benefits of Devoting Yourself to Prayer

Morning Inspiration: Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart. Colossians 4:1 The word devote is a verb, and I mention that, because prayer is faith in action!
When we devote ourselves to prayer, we set aside special places & times, so we can concentrate on the purposes & people Jesus has placed in our hearts. Focusing on the needs of others, helps us be alert to God’s will in how we might help, & encourage them. Sincere & honest prayer should always bring us to our knees in thanks and gratitude, for all the Lord has done, all He has protected us from, & all Jesus promises is still to come.

Scripture & Your Weather Forecast!

Morning Inspiration: “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”
Jesus, in Matthew 7:24–27 We’re expecting a powerful windstorm today, strong enough to blow down trees & damage buildings.
This Scripture came to mind, because Jesus used the example of weather & buildings, to explain the importance of true faith to us. When we really ‘hear’ what Jesus teaches, & obey all He has to say, we are building a solid foundation on The Rock! When we go our own way & refuse to obey, we create our own personal crash of crisis. The storms of life are coming to us a…
