Stories

 Jesus shared stories to teach.  Parables trying to get people to understand about God and spiritual truths.

“The Lamp” from Matthew 5:14-16, “The Mustard Seed” from Mark 4:30-34, “The Good Samaritan”-Luke 10:29-37 and so many more.John 15-1-4

And the Bible is full of stories.  Adam and Eve, David and Goliath, Ruth and Naomi, The Sermon of Jesus on the Mount, The Birth of Jesus..just to name a few.

I was wondering about my own personal story, or your personal story.  Can the Father still teach us from each and every one of these stories?

I am personally dealing with several health issues that have taken me by surprise.  I prayed for answers, and I got them.  But I did not like the answers.  So, I had to ask the Father to teach me through them.

He is teaching me that through chronic pain there can be joy.  It is my choice.  Does it make me happy?  Nope.  Am I constantly learning and trying to understand?  Yep.  But do I still trust the Father to get me through it?  Yep.  He has always done that in my life and He will not stop now.what is your story

I have developed compassion for those in pain…something I never totally understood until now.  I have to choose how to respond.

What is your story?  

Were you neglected as a child?  Did your husband/wife leave you?  Did you lose your job?  Are you in poor health?  Did your spouse pass away?  Did your life end up much differently than you ever imagined?

Reread your story and remember, it is not over yet. And you may see something you have never seen before as you reread it.

Your story can teach you friend, if you let it.story books

Let’s learn together.

Unlimited Plan

We are always looking for a deal on our cell phone plans.  An “unlimited plan” is always the goal with a great price.

To obtain the necessary information when you need it with no limits on how much or how often.  To have unlimited access to call or text anyone on your contact list.smartphone-1894723_1280

We already have it.

I am not talking about any of those major cell phone companies, or even the ones that advertise to the “vintage crowd” such as me.

You probably know where I am going with this…God seems to always use the very simple things in life to speak to my heart or confirm what I already know to be true.  He knows that I need that sometimes.

We have “unlimited data” and “unlimited access” to our heavenly Father.  We can talk to Him anytime, night or day.  We are never told how much or how often.  I don’t have to worry about charges, that debt has been paid.

How is that for an “unlimited plan?”

Pretty simple, huh?  Sometimes simple is good.  No complications, no definitions, no arguments…and no customer service reps to have to go through.

There is a song playing right now that has spoken to my heart like none other has in a very long time.  It is pretty simple.  It acknowledges who God is and how we worship HIM.

Here is part of it:

“You are here….Moving in our midst….I worship you…..I worship you

Way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, light in the darkness..

My God, that is who you are.” (written by Sinach)

Way Maker sung by Mandisa

So as simple as it seems, the unlimited plan we have with our God is amazing.  Don’t complicate it.  

He loves us.  And when we surrender to that love, embrace and believe it….He can love others through us.

It is that simple.

I am going to keep taking advantage of this unlimited plan, how about you?

Curious…290 Views?

I am not sure what to make of this.  A couple of days ago my “readership spiked.”  I mean really spiked.  I went from like 40-50 views per post to 290 one day.  All of the activity was from one country only, and not the USA.

Interesting.  Puzzling.  Hopeful.

Hopeful that whether the posts are copied, read or just looked at someone felt the love of Christ and were encouraged.

Has this ever happened to any of you?question-mark-1495858_1280
