Blog

A SHORT DESCRIPTION ABOUT YOUR BLOG

         ANOTHER YEAR to get in touch with the things about me I want to change or the activities I want to do.  Many make New Year resolutions but I do not, they remind me of living under the law, if I make them and don’t or can’t keep them, then I feel guilty.  So I never make them.  The desire of my heart is to be continually filled and full of the Holy Spirit of God.  But, I don’t always feel that way.  Do I hear an Amen? 

         Reminded of the following scripture, once again, it is time to come to grips with the absolute glory of God, who He is and why I exist.  Continually praising Him for His grace, mercy and love.  Knowing my sin and guilt are forever forgiven and I do not live under the law.

Acts 17:24-31

The Supremacy of Jesus Christ

Nov 29, 2012

 Spiritual, Emotional, Mental and Physical condition of the human body are uniquely tied together in each individual.  In Psalm 139 our hearts ponder the soothing words we read,

O Lord, You have searched me and know me. 

You know my sitting down and my rising up;

I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure. Eric Liddell

Many of us are drawn into the Olympics in London viewing the outcome of athletes that have dedicated years to obtain the coveted Gold Medal.  Years spent perfecting their sport.  Each one committed to hours of emotional fatigue, mental focus, physical exertion, but in particular I am encouraged by the number of athletes who express their spiritual faith in God for giving them their talent.

The Bible says: “Rejoice in the Lord always. [I may appear repetitious, Paul says, but] I will say it once more; rejoice.” Philippians 4:4

How can a person not worry or be anxious when the storm is rising and headed their way; a loved one has been involved in a terrible accident and is hanging onto life; or perhaps you are thirty-two years old, married to the love of your life, with two wonderful children.  Suddenly one day you are diagnosed with stage four cancer and the future is very dismal.  How, tell me how are you to rejoice in such dismal circumstances and not become anxious?

We must read and listen closely; the statement is not recommending that we rejoice in the circumstance, the statement is stating rejoice in the Lord!
