HIS PASSION

If you died today, are you confident in knowing where you will be? Have you ever given more than a second's thought about what the torture of hell would be for you? What about the splendor of heaven? 

Do you know where you are going?

I cannot even wrap my brain around what splendor God has in store for those who make Him Lord of their life!! I am looking forward to finding out! 

ALL of us need to receive God's forgiveness and grace for our sin.  How can we do that?  The only way possible is by accepting God's gift of salvaiton through faith in Christ (Ephesians 2:8).  Jesus died for our sins.  He was buried.  He rose from the dead to give us salvation, forgiveness from our sins, and eternal life, where we will spend eternal life with Him and our Heavenly Father in spendor! 

Living eternally is a given.  Where do you want to live?  In the eternal torture of firey hell, or in the splendor of God's glory where you will live in perfect health with no sorrow or pain? 

Have you ever received God's forgiveness and salvation? If not, God eagerly awaits for you to do so. Just draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8) 

Roman 10:9-10 says, "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved." 

If you'd like to receive God's gift of salvation, you can. Talk to Him. Tell Him you want to be forgiven of your sins and that you believe Jesus died to save you and rose from the dead to give you eternal life.   Invite Him to dwell in your heart and save you. When you do that, He will not only save & forgive you, but He will also send His Holy Spirit to live within you to enable you to live a life that glorifies and pleases Him (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). This means that you don't have to do ANYTHING in your own strength! You can do ALL things through Christ who gives you the strength! (Phil. 4:13) 

Please...Take a minute or two...or two hours to be exact... to watch the following movie giving in explicit detail, as best as the human brain can describe, exactly what God's love for us and the amazing gift of Jesus' life for us looks like

Jesus did this for me.  He did this for you.  It is very hard to believe that someone loves me enough to go through this much torture for MY sins.  He never sinned, but he suffered as though he did.  Every stripe he bore, every insult and every betrayal....all of this was for me.  And for you.  "Amazing Love, how can it be, that You would give Your life for me??"

Salvation: It's a GIFT. It is FREE. A gift cannot be given, however, if the the receiver doesn't accept it. You just have to reach out and accept that gift.    Watch, and be moved.  Move to live a life for Christ today.  Please accept God's gift of salvation to you today.  Click on this link to watch:  The Passion of the Christ

Dear Hate,

There has been a video passed around on social media since the recent shootings in Las Vegas by the title of 'Dear Hate' by Maren Morris and Vince Gill.  So very timely.  (Watch it below.)

Dear Hate 

The lyrics made me ponder a bit.  From where does this kind of hate come from...the kind of hate that causes one to snap and begin to plot and plan the demise of as many lives as is possible without even a second thought? ... The kind of hate that lies in wait to take the life of a God-appointed leader with the bend of a single finger?  Where does this kind of hate begin to take root?

The line "you whisper down through history and echo through these halls..."  Then the one word itself...'whisper'.....

This.  This is how it starts.

A whisper.

A whisper in one's mind, which turns into a thought, which then, when nurtured, becomes a stronghold.

'Hate' defined is 'an intense or passionate dislike' and/or 'hostility'.

There will be those who carry …

The Watering Hole

Every Wednesday night at church for the last 6 weeks, Todd has been facilitating a class by Andy Stanley called Life Apps. Sadly, we wrapped up this class with our last session on 'encouragement'. (I have LOVED this class, the people and the discussions we've had, and Todd & I have genuinely missed anyone who was not able to make it to every session!!)

In this last session, we learned that, in conversation, there are (6) criticisms to every (1) encouragement. That is a stunning ratio, in my opinion.

I have challenged myself today to reverse that ratio, and I have already failed.

The words 'we must edify & build up' come out of my mouth almost daily and, as a general rule, I try to be a person who encourages. But have I really made a conscious effort to be intentional with my encouragement?

This 'encouragement' session has made me try to focus more on the words that flow from my mouth. This is a good rule of thumb for everyone in every capa…

SOLID AS A ROCK

This man right here... I sure do love him.





He loves all things health-related.  
He loves everything nature and outdoors and enjoys long walks every day (weather permitting).
He loves to watch TV - Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, religious programs, and all things health-related. He loves to read, specifically and most importantly - the Bible.  He studies God's word faithfully.
He loves to read anything/all things health-related. 
Did I mention he loves all things health-related? 

He loves a good joke because he loves to laugh.   When he gets tickled, he almost can’t stop himself. He inevitably ends up with tears in his eyes because he laughs so hard!
Just like my granddad, his dad, he has a laugh like no other.  Their laughs are different and only similar in that they have a very distinctive laugh that compels others to join in!
















He loves music. 

He can play the guitar and the banjo, and he loves to listen to big band music.

For so long I credited my mother for giving me and my siblings the lo…
