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

The People in Your Life

The People in Your Life

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime When you know which one it is, you will know what to do with/for that person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, To aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on. Some people come into your life for a season, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real.

Soul’s Vitamins

Soul’s Vitamins

Soul’s Vitamins Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. A sharp tongue can cut your own throat. If you want your dreams to come true, you mustn’t oversleep. Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important. The best vitamin for making friends… B1 (be one). The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts. The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge. One thing you can give and still keep….is your word. You lie the loudest when you lie to yourself. If you lack the courage to start, you have already finished. One thing you can’t recycle is wasted time. Ideas won’t work unless ‘You’ do. Your mind is like a parachute…it functions only when open. The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice. The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime!  It is never too late to become what you might have been. Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.  If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be

Without Love

Without Love

Intelligence without love makes you perverse. Fairness and justness without love make you inflexible and stern. Diplomacy and tact without love make you a hypocrite. Success without love turns you arrogant. Wealth without love makes you mean and tight-fisted. Poverty without love turns you into a radical. Beauty without love makes you capricious. Authority and power without love lead to tyranny. Labour without love turns you into a slave. Naivety without love deprives you of values. Prayer and worship without love turn you into an egotist. Faith without love turns you into a fanatic. Bearing your cross in life without love becomes a terrible burden. Life without love loses its meaning. — Author Unknown Meditation: And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body [a]to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. – 1 Corinthians 13:2-3 You will Succeed in Jesus Name!

Today

Today

Today we have bigger houses and smaller families. More conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees, but less common sense. More knowledge, but less judgment. We have more experts, but more problems. More medicine, but less wellness. We spend too recklessly; Laugh too little, Drive too fast, Get too angry too quickly, Stay up too late, Read too little, Watch TV too much, And pray too seldom! We’ve multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too little, and lie too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life, not life to years. We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy it less. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbours. We’ve conquered outer space, But not inner space. We’ve split the atom, But not our prejudice. We write more, learn less; plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We have higher incomes, but lower morals. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies, But have less communications. We are long on quantity, But short on quality. These are
