Check Your Gauge! You probably check the fuel gauge in your car every time you start the engine. It’s a habit…but, do you check your spiritual tank? We certainly know what happens when we run out of gas in our car… or when we fill…

What an incredible blessing it is to watch your children, train up their children…it is a gift I NEVER take for granted…praise you Father for your faithfulness!
This weekend, my Son and Daughter (in love:) ) shared with me that although their son is rarely fussy, at night, when they say prayers with him…he is restless and a bit grumbly.
My sweet Daughter (in love) said that my son told HIS son…”look, the Lord has given you the gift of life…you are HIS MIRACLE, the least you could do is give him a couple of minutes.”
Those of you who have been following my blog, know that my precious Grandson fought for his life for almost 9months in the hospital, and God’s provision never ceased to amaze us all.
We all squirm and grumble a little when we commit to obedience. It’s not something we naturally want to do. Thankfully, we have each other to speak truth in love…to encourage…to spur us on when we least feel like surrendering our stubborn pride.
God has given each of us the miracle of life, and with Jesus as our example, the least we can do is get out of bed to thank Him:)
Thank you Father, for the conviction of your Holy Spirit,
Processing grief and trials of all kinds, requires an open heart…one that is willing to allow God entrance, at the very time we often want to deny Him…because of the fire we are in. I love yesterday’s (June 25) journal entry from Oswald Chamber’s “My…
Before there was “Jesus Calling” there was Oswald… I was introduced to “My Utmost for His Highest” almost 20 years ago. It is a beautifully written devotional that was first published in 1935. Biddy Chambers, Oswald’s wife, took on the incredible task of transcribing her…
I strive to LOVE my fellow man, and to fight against the spiritual forces of evil that desire to kill and destroy and steal from us.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” -Ephesians 6
“The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have [it] abundantly.” -John 10:10
But then Jesus, how should we live an abundant life among those who we don’t see “eye to eye?”
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it:You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:36-40
It’s a waste of our LOVE to taint it with judgement…for that is not love at all. Love does not win if we focus on ourselves or on our differences. Putting others before ourselves is what God is asking us to do…and we CANNOT do that apart from Him. The enemy’s plan is to divide us. God’s plan is to unite us. Until we take the time to know our God for ourselves, spending time with Him and His Word, which is CHrist…we cannot see beyond our limited human mind.
“For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ. “(only through the revelation of the Holy Spirit) 1 Corinthians 2:16
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
I choose to LOVE.
Father, please grow my desire to seek you with my WHOLE heart and to LOVE as you have LOVED.
