Israel Houghton and New Breed remind us that God is not done with us yet! It may look and feel bad, but God’s plan is far different from how we perceive it. Is it time to give back the crushed dreams, plans and ideas to Him?
Pope Francis really kisses the babies on his walkabouts in the crowds. He kisses the infirm and hugs those in need of a hug. What a change to the papacy and the face of the Roman Catholic Church. As an Evangelical, this is something I never expected in my lifetime. Too cynical for my own good, after years of studying Church history through the ages. God is clearly at work here and the world is stunned but blessed.
Oh to be love and love right back! Incomparable joy! We need to keep family and friends close – loving them as we expect to be love, exceeding expectations where we can. Why? It is God’s idea and the best script to follow! He loved us first before we could understand His love – indescribable, unfailing, unfathomable, unwavering and all-conquering, every day!
Keep them close.
God is faithful to love, provide, sustain, nourish, bless and redeem us. Great reasons for us to be thankful!
God gives more than He takes!
Life brings tough times and good times. The Bible reminds us to praise God at all times. Through praise and worship, we are ushered into God’s presence and receive His Holy Spirit to empower us for the day’s events. We need daily praise.
Psalm 8:2 ESV
Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.
Psalm 30:11 ESV
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
Zephaniah 3:17 ESV
The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
