Baby Sister

Kid: “Mommy, what’s in your tummy”?

Mom: “Your baby sister”.

Kid: “You love her”?

Mom: “Yes, very much”.

Kid: “Then why did you eat her”?

This post by Martha Shaw speaks to my inner heart, reminding me that God wants to heal us inside and out. But we must be humble enough to let Him. Great post Martha!

When I was a little girl, I liked to play in my backyard and since I had a play house and a sandbox, the neighborhood kids liked to play in my yard also.  It was a nice yard, but small and with a host of small kids running and playing, there were always skinned knees.  I can remember Mom putting a bandage on it and for a time it seemed great.  Afterall, it was ugly and having covered it with a bandage, I didn’t have to look at it.  The bandage also kept me from “making it worse” and so it didn’t hurt so much anymore.  Eventually Mom would, some time later, insist on peeling off the bandage so it could get a breath of air and fully heal.  I didn’t like that.  I preferred to avoid that part.  I didn’t want to deal with it.  Removing the bandage hurt…

Psalms 31:3

For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.” (Psalms 31:3)

We pray that this week you would experience the fruit of surrendering completely to the Spirit’s leading. Just as the Spirit told Philip to go and stand next to the Ethiopian’s chariot, we pray that you would be willing to be wherever the Spirit leads you. His burden is easy and his yoke is light, and we pray that you would experience the peace of accepting that yoke and walking with the Spirit this week. He is our rock & fortress, our strength & security. Let Him be your guide. In Jesus name, amen.

A Minister’s Prayer

Minister’s prayer: “May the members of my congregation be as free with their money as they are with their advice, and may their minds be open as their mouths”.

Amazing Grace

One of the most famous and powerful hymns, “Amazing Grace”, is the basic foundation of my testimony. I think it’s probably the same for most people if we really think about it.

Amazing Grace, how sweet  the sound, That saved a wretch like me…. I once was lost but now am found, Was  blind, but now, I see.

T’was Grace that taught… my heart to fear. And  Grace, my fears relieved. How precious did that Grace appear… the hour  I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares… we have already  come. T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far… and Grace will lead us  home.

The Lord has promised good to me… His word my hope secures. He  will my shield and portion be… as long as life endures.

When we’ve  been here ten thousand years… bright shining as the sun. We’ve no less  days to sing God’s praise… then when we’ve first begun.

Amazing Grace,  how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me…. I once was lost but  now am found, Was blind, but now, I see.

So beautiful, so true. I am thankful for God’s Amazing Grace. I am thankful for His love for me.
