  • The Little Things

    The little things are most often the best things in life. Laughter with friends and family, getting a card in the mail unexpectedly, a smile from a friend, witnessing a random act of kindness from a stranger, watching the sunrise and set, finding a french fry at the bottom of the McDonald’s bag when you thought you had eaten them all, getting a parking spot close to the store when it’s raining, reminiscing about a time long since past because you found something while cleaning that brought back the memory, reading a good book, taking a walk on a spring day, having your favorite song come on the radio while driving in the car, having a memorable conversation and the list goes on and on. Yes it is the little things, the small blessings that make up the story of our lives. Sure we have the monumental moments: graduations, weddings, new jobs, birthdays, promotions, etc. but so often the little things get overlooked and yet they shouldn’t because these are the things that make life beautiful. Every moment both big and small make up your life. These small moments are like God’s love notes to His children. Reminding us that He cares very much of the details and of us. Take some time to reflect on the little moments of your life. You just might be surprised just how big those moments really were.

    “It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.” – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

  • Speak God’s Word

    There is power in speaking God’s Word. God works within His Word. God’s Word is alive and when we speak it with our mouths we allow the Holy Spirit to move in our lives. The Bible talks about the power of the tongue and the power of God and His Word. Combine the two and you have the power that God wants us to walk in because we give the Holy Spirit free reign to work within those promises in our lives.

  • God’s Blessings/Giving Thanks Everyday/The Joy of Giving

    God will supply all of your needs. Thanksgiving is tomorrow and we will all sit down with our families, enjoy a delicious dinner, and thank God for all that He has blessed us with. It’s important that everyday we give thanks to God for His many blessings. As people it’s easy sometimes to focus on the things we don’t have instead of what we do have, but it’s important that we understand the difference between wants and needs. The promise of God is that He will supply our needs, the promise does not cover our wants. God promises our needs, but not our wants. Does that mean God never gives us what we want ? Sometimes He does, but it’s up to Him if He feels we should have it. Our hearts have to be right. Jesus told us that the Father would supply our needs and that we shouldn’t worry because He will provide. Jesus also told us to ask the Father when we have a need. God aleady knows what we need and when we need it, but there is a reason why He instructed us to ask.

    In God’s Word He tells us to ask Him when we need something. God wants us to have a proactive relationship with Him and part of that is asking Him when we need something. For example growing up, do you remember going to your dad with a request for something you needed because he was the one who would get you the things you needed ? The same is with our heavenly Father, He wants us to come to Him and ask.

    Also God wants to bless us, in fact He has so many blessings for us that we often times miss most of them because we are not walking in His will or we are not being obedient to receive them. God loves a thankful heart, a giving heart, and a willing heart. God wants to bless us but we must first be thankful for what we have, take care of what He has given us, and be willing to give it up if He asks us to. Remember God will never ask you to give something up without giving you something better, but we must be willing to give. I’m not saying God is going to give you money, cars, or even things in general when you give to others. When we give we recieve treasures in Heaven and the blessing of knowing that we pleased God by helping and giving to someone else. That is a blessing in itself. We must be willing to give without expecting anything in return and finding great joy in helping others. The state of our heart is whats important to God. One of the things that God wants to teach us is that there is a Great joy in giving and God loves a joyful giver. So in a world where greed and selfishness is taught let us take time to be thankful for what God has blessed us with and then see if there are blessings He has given us that we can give and share with someone else in need.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone and God bless.
