Magician

March 7, 2017 — Leave a comment

A little girl whom I love very much had some question concerning God as we drove home one afternoon.

She was asking questions about how the earth was made; where everything came from.  I shared with her from Genesis:

Then she says…God uses magic!

I almost had a stroke…I very calmly explained to her that God does NOT use magic.

Magic is a trick that is played on us to make us believe that the magician has done something fabulous!  Understand that I’m trying to explain this to a 5 year old. 

Love Heart, God actually has the power to do the miraculous!

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1, NIV)

Check out the book of Genesis for the rest of the story and know that our God is not a magician …He is the creator! ~Debra

It’s easy to remember a man lovingly sitting with children. “…Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.              (Mark 10:14, NIV)

A Savior who carefully reached down and touched the eyes of a blind man; and now he sees!      

“…he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes.  “Go” He told him “wash in the Pool of Siloam”.  So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.” (John 9:6-7, NIV)

We stop and remember the lame man that friends lowered down through the roof just at the hope that he would be healed by Jesus.

“Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on.” (Mark 2:4, NIV)

We see the love of Christ Jesus with people in need but why don’t we see it in the cross?

It’s personal and it’s real!!  Have you received what Christ did for you?  If not; I pray that today you would say yes…I need you living in me!

Admit, Believe, Confess…~Debra

Pollution

June 13, 2014 — Leave a comment

Pollution…it’s a word we hear almost everyday. It’s usually referring to the pollutants we put in the air, tin cans, water bottles the list can goes on and on.

How does it apply to your spiritual life?

How about when you’re watching TV show that advocates the very thing that you’ve been teaching your children not to do?

When you’re at work and a co-worker is telling an off colored joke.  Do you stick around to listen or do you walk away?

Your boss asks you to do something just a “little” dishonest…

All of this can affect us spiritually.  Little by little it invades us and before you know it we will be doing things we never would have thought of.

God’s word tells us…”Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice.  And the God of peace will be with you.” (Philippians 4:8-9, NIV) 

I want to encourage you to meditate on God’s word and to find yourself a place to worship and keep yourself accountable.  We must fill our minds with things of God to fight worldly temptation.

Stop the pollution. now!…~Deb

 

 

 

 

 

 

25 Days Till Christmas

December 5, 2013 — Leave a comment

th (3)My Christmas season always begins with my Birthday Celebration.  We gather as a family, decorate the tree and enjoy a meal together.

I love spending time with my family and as I look from face to face and realize how each has grown as an individual; I pray God’s riches blessings on each and every one of them.

“The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”’ (Numbers 6:24-26)

I believe as a mother one of my greatest gifts to my children is to pray for them  Join me and lift up your children to our heavenly father.

No matter what the circumstance; just pray and let God to the rest!  th (4)

I trust you Lord! ~Debra
