Back in Shape

                Ask anybody who’s gone through a regimen of physical therapy, or PT as it’s lovingly known, and they will tell you the same thing.  It’s torture!  But the exercises are completely critical in helping your body heal correctly.

What about spiritual therapy?   If you’ve got something going on in your spirit that needs to be repaired, the Great Physician can show you the exercises necessary to clear up the problem.

They may include repentance, prayer, a change of attitude, or a surrendering of a part of yourself that to this point you have been unwilling to do.  Ouch!  The pain might be great, but like your body, your spirit longs to be whole.

You don’t have to be a spiritual cripple.  Your Heavenly Father does not want that for you! Everything you need to know is found in the Bible.  If you are unfamiliar with this precious book, ask someone who knows it.  I’m certain that they will consider it a privilege to help you.  Gwen~

Let’s Make a Deal!

Our cat, Joey, thinks he’s a dog.  Now I know that’s weird, but he really has no idea that he’s a cat.  He even wears a bandana!

I think that he thinks he’s a dog because when he was a kitten he started hanging out with our cockers, Isabelle and Annabelle.  Where you found one, you found all three.

Sometimes we don’t have a clear understanding of who we are either.  Some people think that just because they were raised in a Christian family that somehow they are Christian too.

The truth is that being a Christian is a willful act…a pact, if you will, between you and God.  You say that you are a sinner and He agrees with you.  You say that you believe that Jesus is His Son and has paid the price for your sin.  You ask for His forgiveness and He says, “Forgiven!”  You repent from sin and He lives within you.

What a deal!  You trade in the junker for a luxury model!  You give up your nothingness for an eternity so fabulous that even scripture says in 1 Cor. 2:9,  “However, as it is written: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.”

Love Heart, have you come to that time in your life yet?  If not, today is the day of salvation.  Gwen~

thLamentations 3:40 tell us that the people decided to “test and examine” their ways and “return to the Lord.”

When is the last time you examined your ways? Have you strayed away from God in any area in your life?

Give yourself an examination and if there is sin there, repent and receive His mercy! ~Debra
