The Real Story of that First Christmas Eve Please allow me to begin this story by sharing that over the many centuries, since the beginning of what we now celebrate as Christmas, our societies have painted … Continue reading →
God is not a one-time creator. God is with us every day. God is behind all the change that happens to each of us and everything in this world. Without God we would not be here today. Why does God work so hard?
Always try your best and know you are special too. God loves you as you are! It never pays to get angry, because so many other people get hurt by your anger. Share God’s love and every one will smile at you.
So listen to what God says: “Quit your fussing and fretting – Quit fighting with yourself and others! Know I am God, your God who loves you and wants to care for you.” (Psalm 46:10)
You can try to control your own life now, which will deny the values and promises of God in this life, or you will choose the life that God has promised and follow the lead of Jesus as your Savior, as God the Father looks on with a smile of approval.
If you trust Jesus, in the next storm you will not wake Jesus but crawl up next to him and sleep in peace like Him.
A genuine child of God never has to tell others about their beliefs with words, their actions and attitude will testify much louder and more convincingly than anything we can say.
Never seek to be the lone leader trying to lead others on your own. Rather, show others how to follow you as you follow in the footsteps of Jesus as your leader and role model. Others should find Jesus by following you.
As long as you have a strong circle of friends and family, you will be rich in this lifetime. Love and friendship are far more lasting value than gold!
Walk in the footsteps of Jesus by faith, trust His message, and you will be blessed. The Devil’s ways will never bring you anything but regret and sadness.
Be the best you, you can possibly become, pleasing your parents and your Heavenly Father – Jesus did it, and so can you!
Just as God is your Heavenly Father and you can be adopted into God’s family as a brother or sister of Jesus, God embraces the value of family.
Just as the baby Jesus ultimately changed the lives of all who were in Bethlehem that night long ago, Jesus still is changing lives today.
“with God nothing is impossible!” If He can choose to have His Son born into this world, can God have His Son enter into your heart as well?
What difference will I make on the roots and fruit of my family tree?
Not even death can defeat the purposes and plans of God for you and your life with Him.
Never allow your fears to cause you to run away from what is right, true, honorable, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent and worthy of God’s praise.
God knows what we need and He is forever faithful to reveal His love for you, and He wants to be in your heart in the good times and the bad times.
God’s Word is the beginning and ultimate source of finding our way onto God’s HOLY HIGHWAY! God will do the rest if only we will believe.
It is good to have right and good friends to hang out with and I pray you will have many awesome friends in your life because they will help you to do what is right and good, just as you may help them to do the same. But, choose your friends carefully.
Where there is a prayer of faith, fear cannot survive within your heart. You can be scared about the storm as it threatens you because if you did not have God’s promise in your heart then the Devil will win and fear will defeat your faith.
I pray our family trusts God first with filling every heart with His love, and is obedient as God brings us through whatever challenges we may face in days ahead…
My hope is that no matter what storms may arise in your lives, you will never, never, never quit on God, because He will never give up on you and will take care of you, if only you will trust in Him and listen for His quiet voice to guide you through the storms.
A great story to watch this holiday season that reveals this truth is the story of “Scrooge in the Christmas Carol.” See how his life was changed. He became a wise and wealthy man after he realized life is not summed up in your bank.
Friendships are built over time! Choose carefully who you allow to be your friend and adviser. Always know the difference between being friendly and having friends.
