th (2)Nothing you’ve done will separate you from the love of God.  Whatever is holding you hostage today…let it go!  God will receive you with open arms. ~Debra

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  (Romans 8:38-39,NIV)

 

 

 

 

No More Night

January 29, 2013 — Leave a comment

Don’t you just love when you have something to look forward to?

I look forward to vacations, spending time with my children, grandchildren and parents, warm sunny days out on my deck, splashing in the pool, taking a long stroll while holding my love’s hand and throwing a ball to my precious Dauschand, Abigail.

If you’re a believer you have something to look forward to…spending eternity with your Savior!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” ( 2 Corinthians 5:17)

Our time on this earth is fleeting! There will come a time when there is no more night, no more pain ~Deb

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21L4, NIV)

Resolution:  A pledge a person makes to one or more individual goals.

Have you every made a New Year’s Resolution?  I know that I must have but as I sit in this New Year and think over the past years I can’t remember a single one.

I’ve heard that if you write down your goals you are more apt to reach them.  Hmmm!

When you write down those goals you need a plan of action, right?   They’re not just going to happen on their own.

Most importantly…pray and stay in the word!  Seek His will for your life and then put that plan into action.  Let’s face it…it will not work unless He is in it.   

 

 Resolution:  

  1. Seek His will through prayer and daily Bible meditation.
  2. Write down my goals
  3. Seek a plan of action

That’s simple enough! Praying for each of you a wonderful New Year seeking Him!  ~Deb

“Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd.  After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray.  When evening came, he was there alone…”(Matthew 14:22-23, NIV)

“Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” (Colossians 3:13, NIV)

“Then the king will say to those at his right hand, “Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25:34-40, NIV)

“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.” (1 Corinthians 19:20, NIV) 

“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:29-31, NIV)
