 An Amazing Video

A woman thought

her first bridal dance was ruined.

But it wasn't.

She just needed to stay calm and not panic.

We who love Jesus are the Bride of Christ.

When awful things happen,

we can remember this video and realize that

Jesus our Bridegroom

can do the impossible

to fix our broken hearts

and messed up situations

if we give him time.




And the lyrics to the song

can inspire us to intentionally

dance through life

with joy -

dance like we've never been

hurt and we've never been sad.

We can listen to the lyrics and decide to dance

while we wait on Jesus to make things right.

Jesus doesn't want yesterday to ruin our today.

Take note:

The groom had a surprise for his bride,

and Jesus has surprises for His Bride.

Lord,

your love and devotion for me

makes me want to reach out and love the world.



Lord of Love,

Remind me to be a miracle this day.

Nudge me, Lord, as I begin to pass by a person who needs a smile.

Direct my attention to an elderly person who is struggling as he or she is going through a door.

Make sure I notice the tired mother with a fussy child who would be thankful if I let her go ahead of me in the grocery line.

Bring to my mind a relative who would delight to receive a phone call from me.

Give me creative thoughts of things I can do for the children of my church to make an ordinary worship day - a day of celebration.

Lord, teach me how to be a walking miracle.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Amen

A September Prayer

 to our Lord

written by a

Visitor to our Site


Jesus,

I humbly come before you eager to spend my day with you. 

I know when I start my day connecting with you it is much easier to hear your voice. 

As I quiet my mind, let me hear you whisper my name,

calling me your beloved,

reminding me that you love every moment

that we get to spend together.

  Lord, you deserve my first and my best everyday,

so I am working

to love you as you commanded, with all my heart,

all my soul, and all my mind.  Guide and direct me, so I can

use my talents and treasures

to honor you,

knowing all that I am and all that I have is because of you.

I pray this in your beautiful name,

Amen

As we move closer to God, we become less selfish.

As we move further from God, we become more selfish.


I follow close behind you,

protected by your strong right arm. 

Psalm 63:8 TLB



August 23, 2020

Loving Lord,

Let my life be of value to other people.

Help me to fashion my day so that

I give blessings

to those you have put on my heart

and

to those you have put in my path.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Amen

All who believe God's Word

purify themselves.


August 14, 2020



Oh what a tangled web we weave,

when first we practice to deceive.


We need to bring back

In response to all he has done for us,

Have a Problem?

Sometimes you just need a manual.

In 2020, I suggest we need an

e-manual.

~ ~

We have e-books.

We have e-commerce.

But what we really need is an

Emmanuel!


Have you ever searched for a manual

to help you fix a problem?

Even before looking for a manual, the first place

we should look is to

Emmanuel



Jesus is called "Emmanuel" or "Immanuel"

which means "God with us."


June 27, 2020

The Bible is a guidebook,

a blueprint,

a road map.

It is an e-manual (Emmanuel = God with us).


We get lost in the woods

without frequently consulting the Bible.


Psalm 119:18-20 TLB

teaches us to say:

Lord,

 

18 Open my eyes to see wonderful things

in your Word. 

19 I am but a pilgrim here on earth:

how I need a map—

and your commands are my chart and guide.

 20 I long for your instructions

more than I can tell.

Celebrating

The Wonders of God.


Dear Lord,

I praise you for you are an Amazing Artist.
You are the Master Painter of our World.

From your palette, you brushed the world with splashes of forest green, sky blue, and sunny yellow.

You created lush jungles of jade and arid deserts of gold.

You formed majestic mountains, and then you took scoops of brilliant white snow and topped their peaks.

You shaped multi-layered canyons and adorned them with copper-colored hues.

Your exquisite creation is vibrant and full of variety.

Joy and thankfulness rise in me as I meditate on the beauty of your world.

Amen

I will sing of the lovingkindness of the Lord forever;

To all generations

I will make known Your faithfulness

with my mouth.

Psalm 89:1

You cannot follow God and never open your mouth

to tell someone about Jesus.




June 3, 2020

The Lord always leads us toward righteousness.

So if we are following him,

we will go toward righteousness.
