Out For Recycle

So, ok! You know God has this, whatever it is you’ve got on your mind and your heart. Whatever it is that’s being difficult for you to manage. You know for sure He’s right there in the middle of it right? I know that we know He takes the bad, blesses it in recycle and makes good of it! Yeah, we do know that don’t we? We really do know that! But when He has to take the bad, to use it for good, it’s really hard on the rest of us isn’t it? If only, oh if only, He could just always use the good, and not have to take us through the thicket of consequences and the trenches of pitfalls. We’re thankful and blessed that He can do it and does it to perfection but it’s those hard places in the getting from the bad to the good that are so difficult to maneuver through and around and in and out of.

We need to remember in the hard places there’s been no abandonment. God hasn’t left us! He has not thrown us aside for something better. No… He’s just got to take this old sinful world with it’s pathetic baggage and tweak it here and fine tune it there to redeem it, make it of some value, as He works it out for our good and His glory. But He’s with us through the confusion and chaos of it all. He’s walking us through the consequences of the bad.

David knew! He knew that his life was all fashioned out and planned by a brilliant, loving God who cared compassionately about his situation and his outlandish circumstances. In Psalm 139:16, he confirms it in his mind, heart and soul when he vocally proclaims to the LORD, “You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are Your thoughts about me, O God. They can not be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! When I wake up You are still with me!

David’s sense of perception of His LORD, led him to a sweet place of awe before his awesome God, who was in complete control of all things. Whether good or bad, he knew God had complete understanding and a strength and ability to work it out. So can we! In our highs and lows we can know, Romans 8:28, “That in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
So when He has to recycle the wrong, He has to recycle our worry into TRUST, our fear into COURAGE, and our doubt into FAITH. Then He can work it out and fashion a new hope for our road ahead bringing a new joy and a new peace into the hard place!

Season Of Change

DSC_4311.jpg

So it’s Fall, and let it begin. There’s a whole lot of summer behind us and a lot of stuff left back there, some of it wonderful memories left in the dust of a fast – paced and busy, hectic life style and yeah, some of it not so great and that’s for sure.
For now a new season lies ahead! A time of harvest and yielding fruits. A new time of rejuvenation and preparation before the long winter sets in. Ahh, yes, beautiful soul! How is it! Beautiful just the way you like it? Or a little on the down slump? How’s your heart? How’s your mind? Weary, tired, restless, and longing for something deeper, something more meaningful, other that the same old, same old, that’s sure to creep in and join up with you in this new season in life?
Sometimes it’s difficult to step away from what’s behind and leave it where it should be left. Those worries, anxieties, those hard places that knocked and those insensitive people that pulled you in and dragged you down into their misery! After all, some things just need to be carried forward and dealt with don’t they? Or do they? Maybe some things surely can be left behind! If they can, then indeed, leave them and walk away.

Things still need attention? Then this new bold season, vibrant with color, is the perfect time to take care of them, so face them head on! All those instances of unconfessed sin, painful hurts, crushing disappointments or maybe just a plain old discontented spirit, needs a new start. Forgive, be forgiven, forget and move on into the bold, vibrant colors and beginnings of a new life, and a new season. The beauty of fall awaits to be seen with new insight, through the clear eyes of the soul, a clean heart and a forgiving spirit. So time out today for a Fall cleaning! Take out the garbage and leave it at the roadside for pick-up! Walk on free in Christ and prepare for harvest in your life and in your ministry. Prepare for harvest, within your home, your family and your relationships and circles of influence.

The Psalmist says and reminds us in the very first chapter of the book of Psalms how blessed we are as followers of Christ, when he says in verse 1, “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by the streams of water which yields fruit in it’s season and whose leaf does not wither….” Yeah, we must prepare our hearts for harvest and maybe do a deep cleaning but it’s well worth it to be like the well-watered tree planted by the stream ‘cuz our leaves won’t wither in the seasons of life. Yeah, beautiful you ~ We are blessed and beautiful souls if we delight in the laws of God and meditate on Him day and night and through all seasons of life.

That Impossible Storm

DSC00064 What manner of man Preview
What impossibility hangs heavy over you today? Oh we all have our storms that rage and our mountains that we see way off in the distance as we try to muster courage to face them. We can live in doubt, fear or perhaps denial but sooner or later we reach them or they catch up with us and we know that now is the time that we must begin our steep accent or our walk on the water. You can do it, but not alone. If you go it alone, you set yourself up for mishap and misfortune and we’ve all been there at some point to know it’s not worth it! Yet, we forget who God really is in these crucial moments and like Peter walking on the water, we become fearful and take our eyes off of Christ! We look away from Him, into the impossibilities of the challenge that we face and so we begin to sink. As Peter was going down, he cried out to the Lord in Matthew 13:30, “Lord, save me! The Lord answered him in 31, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” Then He took his hand and caught him.

Your storm might seem impossible, but God is faithful and you can trust Him to catch you. You can trust Him to get you through. I don’t know what you face today but stay focused on Christ, climbing the mountain! Remain calm, with eyes on Him, while walking on the water!

Courage For The Promise

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So if God has given you a promise why are you discouraged and down in the dumps? He can not lie and He can not break a promise. He will see it through one way or another. If your prayer didn’t receive an answer this week, hang on it may come next week or in two weeks and perhaps you may not put it together when it happens because the answer will be so subtle and the enemy will want you to think it’s just co-incidence. Be on guard for his deception and don’t succumb to his defeat. Remain courageous in God’s victory and remember His promise to Joshua.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

Courage rather than discouragement will bring us into the promises of God.
