Truths of Life

Truths of Life

I Believe… A birth certificate shows that we were born, A death certificate shows that we died, Pictures show that we lived…   I Believe… That just because two people argue, It doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, It doesn’t mean they do love each other.   I Believe… That we don’t have to change friends If we understand that friends change.   I Believe… That no matter how good a friend is, They’re going to hurt you every once in a while And you must forgive them for that.   I Believe… That true friendship continues to grow, Even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.   I Believe…. That you can do something in an instant That will give you heartache for life.   I Believe… That it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.   I Believe… That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.   I Believe… That you can keep going long after you think you can’t.   I Believe… That we are responsible for what we do, No matter how we feel.   I Believe… That either you control your attitude or it controls you.   I Believe…

Have you ever felt the urge to pray for someone and then just put it on a list and said, “I’ll pray for them later?” Or has anyone ever called you and said, “I need you to pray for me, I have this need?” Perhaps, the story below will change the way you think about prayer and intercession. A missionary on Furlough told this true story while visiting his home church in Michigan: “While serving at a small field hospital in Africa, every two weeks I travelled by bicycle through the jungle to a nearby city for supplies. This was a journey of two days and required camping overnight at the halfway point. On one of these journeys, I arrived in the city where I planned to collect money from a bank, purchase medicine and supplies, and then begin my two-day journey back to the field hospital. Upon arrival in the city, I observed two men fighting, one of whom had been seriously injured. I treated him for his injuries and at the same time talked to him about the Lord. I then travelled two days, camping overnight, and arrived home without incident. Two weeks later I repeated my journey. Upon arriving in the city, I was approached by the young man I had treated. He told me that he

The Conversation

The Conversation

The Conversation GOD: Angels, do you know what I was just thinking about? ANGELS: What were you thinking about? GOD: Christians seem to have forgotten what kind of power they have and the devil keeps on deceiving them! ANGELS: God, exactly what are you driving at? GOD: I have made my children in such a way that when the people of the world are sitting, they would be standing; when the world is standing, they will stand out; when the world stands out; my children must be outstanding, and when the devil dares the world to be outstanding, my people will be the standards to be used! JESUS CHRIST: They (Christians) are also forgetting the words in Ephesians 1:3. GOD: Please read it out! ANGEL: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly places with every spiritual blessing in Christ. ANGEL: So what do we do now since the end is almost near? HOLY SPIRIT: My Presence is still among men and I will teach and remind the Christians of all that we have discussed. I will also make sure that they share the gospel of Jesus Christ everywhere they are! JESUS CHRIST: I will also keep on interceding for them and stand in for them even in their

A Different Look at Psalm 23

A Different Look at Psalm 23

A Different Look at Psalm 23 This is an eye-opener; probably we never thought nor looked at this Psalm in this way, even though we say it over and over again. The Lord is my Shepherd – That’s Relationship! I shall not want- That’s Supply! He maketh me to lie down in green pastures – That’s Rest! He leadeth me beside the still waters – That’s Refreshment! He restoreth my soul – That’s Healing! He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness – That’s Guidance! For His name sake – That’s Purpose! Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death – That’s Testing! I will fear no evil – That’s Protection! For Thou art with me – That’s Faithfulness! Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me – That’s Discipline! Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies – That’s Hope! Thou anointest my head with oil – That’s Consecration! My cup runneth over – That’s Abundance! Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life – That’s Blessing! And I will dwell in the house of the Lord – That’s Security! Forever – That’s Eternity! What is most valuable is not what we have in our lives, but WHO we have in our lives! Meditation: Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We

Friends Could Be Angels

Friends Could Be Angels

One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, “Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.” I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him and as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, “Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives. He looked at me and said, “Hey thanks!” There was a big smile on his face. It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude. I helped him pick

Take Some Time

Take Some Time

Take some time to smell the flowers. As you walk the paths of life. Take some time to ease the tensions. From the challenges and the strife.   Take some time to hear the birds sing. As they usher in the dawn. Though the day be just emerging. Too soon it will be gone.   Take some time to watch a sunrise. Now and then a sunset too. Just be sure that seeking pleasure. Isn’t all you ever do.   Take some time to count your blessings. Though you feel they’re not that great. You will find they’re more abundant. Than you thought, at any rate.   Take some time to banish hatred. When and where you can. Just detest man’s evil ways. And not your fellow man.   Take some time to love your children. Every moment you are free. The benefits sure exceed. A university degree.   Take some time to love your neighbor. And even more important still, Take some time to love yourself. Or not many others will.   And if you don’t like that image. Of yourself that others see, Take some time to make some changes. Be the best that you can be.   Take some time to help another. Who you think might need a hand. You will find the satisfaction. Leaves you
