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.

Which side of the Coin?

 

I am sure you have heard this: “There are two sides to every coin?

Most of us have been on both sides at one time or another.  

An employee/employer.  

Child/Parent….my favorite!  Sometimes around your parents, you feel like a twelve-year-old again.   Or when you get around your own children and they like to tease and make you feel like a very old woman!

 I have been a student, a public school teacher, a new mom, a homeschooling mom, a mom of public/private school teenagers, and a public school teacher, partially retired…in that order.  I have been on both sides of the coin, maybe several coins.  Often those coins were shiny…but sometimes very dull and scratched!
