Sometimes you just can't figure it out!

This weekend I had the difficult responsibility of taking care of finishing the cleanout of my parents home.  It is sad to see my Mom's health deteriorate and deal with the grief involved in change.  We had a family reunion on Saturday as well and it was decided that there will be no more reunions for that side of the family.  They have happened since before I was even born.  Change is an inevitable part of our lives.  We get accustomed to life outside of the powerhouse of God's grace and love and suddenly it is evident that change is needed.  Sometimes we need to accept the fact that we don't know everything and we need to submit to the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ.  My prayer today is that if you are facing difficulty that you will let the Lord rule over your heart, soul, and mind to give you a sense of the new creation God intends for you to be.  2 Corinthians 5:17:  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation.  The old is gone and the new has come!  Thank you Lord for helping me know there are just some things I will just never figure out!

I am a child of God!!!

Children obey your parents!  We have heard it all of our lives.  However, today I am thankful for the opportunity to be a child of my parents as well as being a child of God.  He is so good and wonderful.  Many times we neglect time with the Lord.  That neglect is the first step away from the intimacy he desires with his children.  As my own children grow older, it seems that they need me less.  Actually, they need me as much now as ever, it's just that they are learning to be more independent and need me in different ways.  We need to be growing in our dependence and our pilgrimage as children of God.  Please be encouraged to prepare for the coming Christ in this week's sermon.  Feel free to share your thoughts in the area provided in this blogspot.  God bless you as you walk with Him!

I'm glad to be a part of the body!

Today I am not worthy to be a part of the body of Christ, but I am so thankful that He allows me to be in it.  As we worship and sing and serve in the church it is easy to overlook the purpose of what God has called the church to be through our witness.  Today, we do not have to be perfect, but we are saved to make a difference in the lives of those we are called to serve.  I hope you are making a difference and I hope that I too am making a difference by the way I share God's love!

Happy Easter

Easter is an event not a holiday!  Easter is the reality of Jesus Christ's resurrection.  I am happy that the living Christ lives in me.  The problem with Easter is that the atoning sacrifice for our sin and the power found in Jesus' resurrection becomes cliche'.  We have become so accustomed to the annual celebration we forget that the living Christ brings power to our lives every day.  I pray that you find the risen Christ in your Easter celebrations.  He is alive!  I thank the Lord for rising from the dead the third day after his crucifixion.  However, I thank Him today that He lives in me!

Look what the Lord has done!

Have you ever seen something that represents the power of God in your life?  Perhaps a beautiful sunrise or a spring walk through your yard.  God makes praising Him easy if we will keep our eyes open and willing to give Him credit.  Yesterday, while emceeing the Lake of the Ozarks Gospel Sing, a dear friend, Karen Peck, sang a song that found her crying.  She was holding my son's hand as he looked to her.  It was a moving moment, because she was singing "Our God's never late, but he's always on time."  Joel walked to Karen as she sang which represents the power of God seen in his healing.  A doctor once told me in the presence of Joel that he would never walk.  Our God is greater!  Therefore, when we see Joel walking and running that is our proof that God is alive and He still provides miracles for those who trust Him.  This week's sermon challenges us to make enough of a difference in the lives of others to direct them to Christ.
