Move Over Mr. Easter Bunny!

We are celebrating Christ’s resurrection! This should be the BIGGEST worldwide celebration of all! Had Christ not died for our sins and risen up out of the grave, we would be without Hope. But now, we are given the gift of spending eternity with Christ. I am so grateful we are not shut off from the Creator of the Universe. What a miserable life that would be!

I can’t image not having the Lord with me in my life journey. He is the only One who will never leave me nor forsake me (Hebrews 13:5). My Savior, Provider, Healer, Friend, Husband, Father to my children, and even myself! Thank you Jesus for dying for all mankind and that You sent your Holy Spirit to help us through this life here on earth. Jesus is alive! Yes, He is risen… indeed. We rejoice in You! You are God and You are Great!

How to Accept Christ as your Lord and Savior

Look at the Birds!

Matthew 6:25-27

EagleBird watching is intriguing. Such amazing creatures. Did you know that Jesus commands us to look at the birds? In Matthew 6:26 Jesus says,  “Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?”

If you watch them, you will see what joyous creations they are! They are simply beautiful. Many sizes and colors, they sing and soar, and perch peacefully in the safety of high places. Birds playfully chase each other through the air. They watch from up high, then drop down when its safe. Carefree.

free t flyWe are to soar. We are to sit in the high places with our Savior, relaxing and trusting in Him, knowing that He is in Control of our situations. We are to be joyful! We are to sing, rejoice, and give praise to the Lord.

Slow down today. Take some time, wherever you are, to look at the birds. You will be amazed and blessed by their presence. And, you will then understand why Jesus commands us to, “look at the birds!”

Jesus… the Best Valentine

love is...Valentines Day in the United States is probably the most recognized and celebrated holiday we have and it is all about honoring the love of our life. Flowers, candy, and sweet loving sentiments are all expected to be a part of this day! And how exciting it is when someone pours out their love for you!

The Bible says that their is no greater love than this; to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:3 Christ poured out His love for us, for all of mankind. That means you! “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Imagine having the perfect valentine. One who would never hurt you or let you down. ValentineHe will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 says, He is always here with me, loving me, in spite of my faults and shortcomings. He thinks the world of me, as I am His precious daughter and bride. He blesses me continually, as I feel His presence in my life. He romances me daily by showing me a doe and her fawn first thing in the morning, showering me with bouquets of flowers in my yard, and painting a beautiful sunset for me most every evening. I am grateful for Christ’s love and His acceptance of who I am. Thank  you Jesus for loving me enough to die for me and all the rottenness about me! I am so undeserving. I am thankful that salvation is a free gift we receive just by accepting Christ as our Savior. There is nothing I could ever do to earn Your acceptance. Thank you Jesus for your love, grace, and mercy. I love you Lord! And You, Jesus, are the Perfect Valentine… and You are Mine and I am yours.whole heart Everyday Valentine!

Rejection

Nothing  to offer

We all want to feel a sense of belonging, worth, and competence. But we need to not seek this from the world or any one person. We need to fill this void with Christ. When you feel rejected you must remember, you are a child of God. The Lord loves you so much that Christ laid down His life for you. Romans 8:11 says the Holy Spirit dwells in you and gives you life. The Holy Spirit is your Helper. God says, you are in the Family! No one else matters because Jesus loves you unconditionally. Thank the Lord for His unconditional love!
