Greetings to you on this Saturday morning........ Wakey, wakey! Rise and Shine for JESUS!!! What a beautiful day to begin again, you know, a FRESH START! Come on, let's DIVE RIGHT IN!!!
Oh, the weekend........... I was in Walmart yesterday, and what to my wondering eyes did appear??? Christmas! Trees, lights and the whole shebang. It's coming, you know. A little over 2 months. How wonderful!
A season of Hope. Peace. And, the Promise of a Savior! I can't WAIT TO SEE JESUS!!! He is the Only Reason, I am living and breathing! The definition of "breathing" is: the process of taking air into and expelling it from the lungs."........... Today we are given the chance to make a difference! An opportunity to further Glorify our Father!
You know, it's easy to believe that the only way we can do that, is by doing something BIG! Not so. Look around you. Look inside you. All you need is a willing heart. A heart that loves God, and loves people! In this world of hate, BE KIND! Help someone in need! Run an errand for your neighbor! Offer to walk their dog! LIVE! BREATHE! Then, do it all over again! Lend a hand to a single parent! There are a million possibilities for us to Shine for Jesus!
How about giving yourself permission to take a rest! What a concept, hey? All week, the world has been trying to put on us, drama, panic, busyness, stealing our time, and trying to put a foundation under our feet! DON'T LET IT!!! Come on now, it's time to make a stand for your life! What's it going to be? Chaos or Peace? Fear or Faith? Unrest or Rest in Jesus? The world puts options in a hat, and makes you pick one. Good luck with THAT!
God will make you BRAVE!!! He will make sense of all our messes! He calls us to COME OUT, COME OUT, WHEREVER YOU ARE!!! He calls us to come out and play....... Hey, I can hear that disbelief in your doubt! God tells us, that, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10) Life in ABUNDANCE!!! If He says it, why on earth would you doubt He will be IN it? "The joy of the Lord is your strength." (Nehemiah 8:10)
JOY IN ABUNDANCE....... LIFE IN ABUNDANCE....... Jesus is in it ALL! It is made Possible, only BY Him! Don't you doubt that for one single second! He is with us wherever we go, and in whatever we do! So, it is safe to say that He wants to be a part of our FUN, as well. Yes, He is even in our HAPPY DANCE. Hey, He's the REASON for our happy dance! This life. In every Gift from God. In our highs, and our lows. In every circumstance we are facing. In our choices. Our decisions. Being IN the world, not OF it. As we run the race of perseverance. When we fall, and when we RISE. In every breath we take. Where we find our Worth. WHO we are living for. WHAT we are living for.............. Through it all, we keep our eyes on Jesus! WHY??? Because He is the BEST PART OF ALL!!!
