Scripts

May 23, 2016 — Leave a comment

Reading a story, watching a play or going to see a movie; what’s your motive? To see how the script plays out…right?

Have you ever heard the GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD?  (Matthew 26,27,& 28) Before the foundation of the World; God had a plan…a script!

A plan for every tribe,  for every nation and their salvation.  He used a host of characters.  Caesar Augustus, Mary and Joseph, the Parisees’ and the Sadducees and last but not least Pilate.

All doubted…Oh, how his disciples must have felt during those dark days of His crucifixion and resurrection.

But God had a plan to bring redemption through His son Christ Jesus.  Jesus paid the penalty for all through His death on the cross.

“For God so love the world the he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16,NIV)

The script has been written…will you accept the victory? ~Debra

A Rabbi…

th (1)A Rabbi asked his son, “Have you prayed today?” No, said the son,  “I don’t need anything.”

Wow, that’s a profound statement!   How many of us fall to our knees during a time of crisis , but fail just to praise Him for what He does on a daily basis.   I know that I’ve been guilty.

Have you ever spent the day, just Praising Him?  Not asking for one single thing?  It’s harder than you might think.              th

I’m so accustom to tapping into the source, Jesus Christ, that it’s like second nature to me.  I have to make a concious effort JUST to praise Him!

It’s hard not to slip in a request or two, but God knows your heart, He knows your every need.  Spend the day Praising, even in the storm, allow Him to work in and through your life.

Sometimes the journey is rough, but ohhhh, the rewards are boundless. ~Debra

 

 

 

Sunflowers

November 13, 2014 — 1 Comment

I just love Sunflowers, don’t you?  They’re so bright and cheery, bold yet comfortable.

The leaves are heart shaped; they stand proud and strong, faces raised as a reflection of God’s love.  Did you know that there isn’t much that can stop a sunflower from growing?  These bold flowers are very persistent.  I’ve seen them take root and push through cracks in concrete.

This unique flower also draws impurities from the soil and still blooms into a beautiful creation. 

As you live day to day, know that there will be obstacles and If you push through and allow God to sift away the impurities, there are seeds of hope awaiting you.

“You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” (Hebrews 10:36, NIV)

Just as the sunflower is drawn by the sun, we are sought by His Son!! ~Deb

Joseph

December 3, 2012 — Leave a comment

 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.  Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.   She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.  But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son.  And he gave him the name Jesus. (Matthew 1:18-25, NIV)

A Fishing Story

July 1, 2012 — Leave a comment

A father and son left early on a Saturday morning to spend the day fishing.  They fished all day and caught nothing.  All day… and nothing!

When they returned home tired from their long day, each wrote down the events of the day.

The father wrote:  Went fishing with my son today.  Didn’t catch anything.  A whole day wasted.

The son wrote:  Went fishing with my dad.  We didn’t catch anything.  Best day of my life.

Isn’t it  funny how two people doing the same thing can have a  such different perspective? Time spent with a loved one can never be time wasted.

When is the last time you sat with your child and read a book?  Went to your parents and sat and talked about the events of the day.  Spent some time with your brother and or sister…or both!  Met up with an old friend.  Life is too short…take time and spend it with the ones you love!  Maybe a few you don’t…make amends. 

We have no promise of tomorrow, Love Heart, do it today!!  (1 Peter 1:24-25, NIV, John 10:28, NIV)~Deb
