Take a look around in wonder
Take a look around in wonder

This morning as I listen to the thunder's roar through the heavens, I was reminded of God's magnificent glory.

His power is never ending. He is the creator of all the heavens and all the earth and deserves our praise and glory.

So, as we watch the rains fall from the sky and hear the thunder roar, look up and magnify our God.

He is the everlasting to everlasting. He is the great amen and he is the king of all.

And Lord God, as we watch you replenish the earth we are reminded of just how amazing, spectacular and powerful you truly are. We love you and we praise you Lord God. To you be the glory forever and ever amen.
He We Go!
He We Go!
Well, here we go back in the saddle again. The kids are back in school and it's time to get down to business. Out with the old and in with the new.

It's a new year filled with great possibilities. God has so many things in store for each one of us. So, I want to encourage you to listen to the Holy Spirit as he speaks in your life. His words line up directly with the Bible. Therefore, it is so important that we know what the word says so that we will not be deceived. Satan roars around like a lion waiting to see who he can devour. We must always be aware of everything going on around us.

Making a commitment for daily Bible study will change your entire life. When we are in sync with God, we start to understand and to hear his voice. And isn't that what everyone of us want… Clarity. So open the word, open your ears and get ready for an amazing year.

This was my face this morning while I was taking a walk. I was enjoying my private time alone and talking to God. Then, I asked got a question. But, the moment I asked the question, I laughed to myself and said how would God show me an answer while I'm out here walking. There was no one around and nothing much except for the trees in the water.

So, just as I was finishing my little thought in my head, I looked out on the water to my right and what did I see? But a pelican nodding his beak up and down enthusiastically. I then looked up into the heavens and smiled. Just when we think God can't answer us, he does.

God promises us that he will always hear an answer our prayers. So what are you praying for today? Seek God and you will find.

A dear friend of mine told me the other day that God is not the author of confusion. Of course I know that this is in the Bible, but how quickly we forget the words set of been spoken to us by the prophets. So sometimes God just have to send a friend to remind us.
So, if you have thoughts that are spinning wildly around in your head, just stop. Think about what you were thinking about. God tells us to think about things that are pure and everlasting.
We tend to get ourselves so tied up in the moment. We think about everything going on in our lives and our heads just spinning around in circles.
Well, I’m here to tell you that you can drive yourself crazy. So take a minute and just remind yourself where the mind goes the man follows.
We spend all this time making sure that we look beautiful on the outside, but how much time are we spending on the inside and on our mind?
Remember, that which we put time into is what we become. So train yourself to think about what you were thinking about and be wise enough to recognize wrong and right thoughts. And then make sure you were shutting away the confusion. You can turn your thoughts around which will in turn change your life.

This morning during family Bible study, we discussed the importance of our behaviors matching up to who we say we are. One of the number one complaint of people is hypocrisy amongst Christians. So my question for you is, “are you a hypocrite?” When people think of you or speak of you, what do they say?  Hmmm, this is something we all need to contemplate. Well, I don’t know about you but I want to be a better person. I want to live each day striving to the better within myself and better towards other people. I want to learn to love more, forgive more and judge less. There way too many times in my life where I know I have been a hypocrite. I know I have lived in complete defiance to God’s word. I know that I have not been the person I was created to be. I know you may be saying, Heather quit being so hard on yourself. But if I’m not hard on myself, who will be? The Bible tells us to recognize our sins, to admit them to God and to turn from them. Many times we commit the same sins over and over again, but today is the day and now is the time to turn over a new leaf. Let’s do away with hypocrisy and begin to let our lives shine with Christ.

Embrace the differences
Embrace the differences
Are you willing to look at other people's shortcomings and forgive them? Or are you so proud that you only recognize faults and others and never realize that you yourself have faults as well?

We have to be willing to love each other how we are. If we spend our lives comparing one person to another person, we will never have fellowship with anyone.

Each person is unique and special. God did not create each and everyone of us to be the same in every way shape and form. He made you and he made me and every single person exactly how he wanted them to be.

So quit looking and judging just because someone doesn't look, think or act like you. It's OK to be different!
Not my fault
Not my fault
Do you find that things are always someone else's fault and never your own?

It reminds me of a multitude of times on my daughter has knocked things over and said, "it wasn't me".

But, each one of us has done this at one time or another. Or quick to jump to conclusions I'm quick to say things, and then we step back and look and realize 0MG maybe I should have not said or done that.

Well, I've done this on a multitude of occasions, Space most recently during my vacation to Key West and Cozumel. But we can't spend our lives beating ourselves up just because we did something wrong or said something wrong. We just have to suck it up buttercup and move on.

Dwelling on the past is never good for anyone. But we can take the time to recognize what we have or have not done and do our best to remedy the situation.

Thank goodness we have Jesus to cover our faults and to lead us and guide us along his straight and narrow path.

Sometimes that path can get slippery and you aren't sure which way to turn. But if the path that you were taking is leading you to question if what you were doing or saying is correct or wrong, you know the answer...back up and go the right way. and make certain that you take responsibility for your own actions.

There is power in the name of God! Are you going through the motions, or are you giving your heart lately to the God of heaven?

This is a question that you and you alone can only answer. When we look at the story about the woman with the issue of blood. She had suffered with a hemorrhage for 12 long years and she heard about Jesus. Jesus was coming to town and thousands and thousands and thousands of people crowded around, trying to get a glimpse of him.

She pushed forward knowing that if she could only touch the fringe of his robe that she would be healed. She reached out and touched his robe and self healing power shoot through her body. Jesus turned to his disciples and said who has touched me? They said Jesus there's thousands of people all around pushing and touching you. He said no healing power has gone out. He turned around and saw the woman and said your faith has healed.

How many people go to church or just claim to be a Christian on a daily basis, but don't really have to face it takes for Jesus to notice you?

Where is your faith and where is your walk with Christ?Don't just be another person claiming to be a Christian. Be the person that Jesus turns around for and says I see you, I know you and you are mine. Only you can make the decision and only you can make the change to Control your destiny.Make 100% sure the Jesus knows you and that you were walking with him every day.
Right or Right?
Right or Right?
This statement is so important for each one of us to remember every day. We go through our lives and we look at people and we are disturbed to buy the things they do are the things that they say, but are they really any different than us?

Perhaps a different circumstance or set of events surrounding what’s going on, but isn’t it all the same?

There are so many divides and society right now and it’s always surrounded around opinions. But they’re just that their opinions.

Yeah no, everybody thinks that they are right in every situation. It would be wonderful if instead of thinking that we are always right, we would take the time to actually hear what another person has to say and then instead of trying to change their mind, just say OK I respect that you have an opinion. It doesn’t mean that you have to agree with someone, but we don’t have to argue with them all the time.

We must be willing to admit when we have been wrong and to move forward. Humbling ourselves and thinking of others as better than ourselves does require action.

We don’t have to always be right, we don’t have to always have the last word and we don’t always have to make sure that we appear better than somebody else.

Be willing to hear, and I mean really hear what someone else has to say. The most important thing that we can do is truly love other people and be willing to look at them as better than ourselves.

Because in the end we are all just children of God here on this earth making mistakes, doing and saying right and wrong things and just living our lives. So, live your life in a different way and be willing to humble yourself and think of others as better than you.
