What Is Life!

I pose this question to the churched and un-churched. To the saved and unsaved. Those who know him and trust him and those who have problems with the concept of God or a loving heavenly father they can"t see.

"For what is your life? It is even a vapour that appeareth for a little time and then vanisheth away."
James 4:14

Christ gives us all an invitation; even to those of us who have the basic doctrines of Christianity and think we're set, where we are. We sit in the same pew, we hang with the same people at church, and give our ten percent. We may give more, monetarily. How much time do we spend in actual relationship with Christ, hearing his heartbeat for us and the lost. Do we possess the power and glory of the Holy Ghost within us-with the evidence of speaking in tongues "stirring up the gift within us?"

Open up to him and let him come in to your heart. If he is there, let him move you into the inner chambers, commune with him like you never have before. Love him with your whole life, let him have all you are. He already owns all you have.

What is your life? Is it Christ? I hope you enjoy and are challenged by the message of this song.

God Bless You.

The Book is Here!

After years of work, restructuring, revising and editing, it is finished.
My husband Chris is a preacher of the Word, but he is also a writer. He writes what people read to reach them about real life. It happens. Life isn't pretty and he doesn't sugar coat it. He preaches it straight and he writes it straight. Christian fiction is the genre and his first work is now available on Kindle. It is a good read about the Holy Roller, the Unchurched, the Rejects; Life and the Forces that influence them all.  I hope you'll read and enjoy. $3.99 for the Kindle version. The hard copy is not presently available at this time but is coming soon.

Praise Him Before the Proof

We are so used to complaining when things don't go our way. We balk at the rules laid out when it comes to returns or check cashing policies, presenting license when purchasing certain goods and commodities (for those who partake Hey I believe in a good bowl of drunken beans and you need beer to make them). So today brought its own frustrations and challenges of faith. I have to say I failed miserably in the beginning. "So inconvenient!  We're just cashing a check by a member of the bank. Ugh! So, what; we no longer have an account there?"
We prayed during our journey across a long bridge on bare tires (in front!), "God You really Need to get us across!"
It wasn't until we arrived at the tire place that His Spirit reminded me: Don't complain about and beg for stuff. Praise until you see the promise fulfilled. Praise until God works it out, even if it  means you wait. "Praise when I don't do it the way you think it should be done. Rejoice until..."
So, as my husband gave the service man his tire size and waited to find out availability and price; I silently praised the Lord. I rejoiced that he would provide. He did. Two tires aligned for $30 each.
So,.not only did we safely get there with no incident, but we met a man who just received the baptism of the Holy Ghost and was going through the fiery trials of losing both parents within months of each other. He encouraged us by his spirit and attitude. We assured him that we would do business in the future; just for the sake of befriending a kindred spirit.

Oh and he also gave us a brand new hose for our ac to refill coolant. Praise God for even the little things. Praise him even for the smaller victories in the process-along the way. Enjoy his work, his beauty-his wisdom. Take the scenic route and praise him along the journey. It's hard sometimes when there is pain and loss involved, but we're in the hands of a wonderful creator who can make anything happen with a word from his mouth. Watch it unfold. Never lose the wonder. Can you wait? Can you submit and be dazzled?

Be Blessed!
