Good morning folks,
Yesterday Jackie and I went to Grand Junction to do some shopping and we went to a local restaurant for lunch. As we ate I witnessed an accident. A young waitress was bringing out a large platter of food and beverages when she caught her toe and tripped. The platter tipped and all the food was in a booth seat and on the floor. The poor waitress burst into tears and ran back into the kitchen. We felt so bad for her. What happened next however was a blessing to us. Two young men came out of the kitchen and quickly cleaned up the mess while talking to the couple in the booth to make sure they were OK. They were very friendly and caring. In short order the mess was cleaned up and everything made right. It was like two brothers stepping up to the plate to hit a home run for their sister. Very cool. After about 15 minutes the waitress came back out of the kitchen having composed herself and all was well.
We all need to be at the ready to encourage as those two young guys did. Whether in words or actions... whatever is needed.
11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV
Be blessed, Be a blessing, Who do you need to come along side today with encouragement?
Good morning folks,
I want to use two verses this morning. One from the Old, and one from the New Testament. These verses when used together indicate a truth. That is... Our Saving Lord rejoices over us. And, He rejoices over us to the Father and all the angelic host.
The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV
8 “Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God.9 But he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God. Luke 12:9 NKJV
Good morning folks,
I had been thinking since last night that I would post a certain verse this morning and all that changed when I read the news over my morning coffee. There is a headline on Fox News. Here it is...
Teen Vogue is defending its decision to publish a graphic tutorial to anal sex for children and teenagers.
Wow. Just how sick can this world get? The article is being "defended" by the sick editors of this teen magazine. I truly hope parents will wake up. Stop allowing this rag in their homes and put this magazine out of business.
We have allowed, even paid for, sick people to have a say in our lives and the lives of impressionable children and teens. Remember, righteous anger is OK. It means our conscience is still working. And, our conscience is a gift from God.
Of course such wickedness is addressed in our bible. The bible truly is our manual on how to live. Check out these verses from Psalm 1. Better read it before these evil type of people make it illegal to own a bible.
Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Psalm 1:1-4 ESV
Good Morning folks,
I had a customer come in to the RV dealership the other day and as I got to know him he mentioned he was from Delta Colorado. I mentioned that I go to church there and the questions started coming. He wanted to know if my church studied Scripture. Well yes! Each time we meet, was the response. He was pleased by that and then asked when I felt the rapture would come. What a conversation! Of course we have no way of knowing. Some things we do know. The spiritual condition (sinful condition) of the world would indicate that it may be soon. Even very soon. We need to be ready. Is my spiritual house in order? Have I sought for others forgiveness? Have I forgiven all those who have wronged me? Have I truly trusted Jesus as my Lord and Savior? Questions like that are good to ask one's self. Have I been busy sharing the good news of Jesus?
39 “But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into.40 You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.” Luke 12;39-40 NASB
Be blessed, Be a blessing, Be ready,
