Keep it Simple

choice_mainHi Friends,

I feel my spirit is stirred this morning. So many headlines, video’s, tweets and posts. If we are not careful, we get sucked into the whirlwind of confusion. Who to believe.  What to believe. Who and what to trust. Who to follow.

When we feel overwhelmed by this world, and I feel that way almost on a daily basis, I have to remind myself to keep it simple.  Take a step back.  Breathe deep. Surrender to my Lord Jesus and ask Him to sort it out for me. And it really is that simple.

Here is a reminder…

1 Corinthians 14:33 King James Version

33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Read that carefully. “God is NOT the author of confusion, but of PEACE!!!”

He can give you peace when your world is crumbling before your eyes. He can give you peace when your heart is broken.  His word is clear and true. Not confusing or deceiving.

The enemy, that old devil, is the author of confusion and the Father of lies!!!!  Think about that for a moment. He is the FATHER of lies…

John 8:44 King James Version 

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

The enemy is all around us, fighting hard to blind us and lead us astray. And when we are caught up in confusion and feel like we don’t know which way to go, that should be a big indicator that we need to re-evaluate our frame of mind and spirit.

Just stop for a moment. Remember, when you are consumed and weighed down with confusion, that isn’t coming from God.  Ask Him to clear your mind. He will.  armour

John 14:6 [Full Chapter]

Jesus saith unto him, am the waythe truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus is the answer.  Plain and true.  That is the best way I know to keep it simple. Keep your eye on Him and when it drifts, and it will. We are all sinners. We are all carnal by nature, call out to Him. He is waiting on you.

Come To The Table

Loving This Song….
come to the table

 

He said come to the table
Come join the sinners who have been redeemed
Take your place beside the Savior now
Sit down and be set free
Come to the table
Come meet this motley crew of misfits
These liars and these thiefs
There’s no one unwelcome here, no
So that sin and shame that you brought with you
You can leave it at the door
And let mercy draw you near
Just come to the table
Come join the sinners, you have been redeemed
Take your place beside the Savior now
Sit down and be set free
Come to the table
Just come to the table

Still Climbing

narrow path to heaven

 

 

 

So, here I am. Still moving forward. Upward. Still climbing that narrow path that will someday lead me home to Heaven.  And home is the perfect word. Sometimes I find myself acting like an impatient child. Pouting and throwing a fit…but, I’m ready to go home…to Heaven.

There are days that feel like they will never end. Days where the climb almost seems too much. Moments that I see the spiritual pain and suffering in those around me and it makes me hurt. Needless worry and stress that zaps the joy from the hearts of those I know and love. If we just lay it all at the feet of Jesus, He will take care of it.

Now, grant it, I’m no Saint. I make lots of mistakes and sometimes I lose sight of my journey. I am only human. But, there are other days when the Holy Spirit is so alive in me that I could run right down the middle of town shouting the good news that Jesus is still in the saving business and He is coming back soon. Very soon.

Are you ready? Do you have yourself in order? Did you know that the Bible says…

But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Matthew 12:36 KJV

empty-words

 

 

Let that sink in…Every Idle Word!!

Do you know how many idle words I say per day?! It’s overwhelming. Let’s challenge ourselves. If you are reading this, let’s go one full day with no idle words. No speaking under our breath. No judgmental comments. No negative feedback.

Can you do it? I’m certainly going to try.

Let us lift each other in prayer. Let us give thanks for all the blessings we have. Let us rejoice in the day that the Lord has given us. God bless all of you.

Your Voice + His Word = Change

You can wait out a storm but battles are won and lost in the fight. If you find yourself in the middle of a spiritual attack, FIGHT! You will not come out the victor until you do. In all the pieces in the armor of God, there is only one offensive weapon listed…the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Ephesians 6:17

Someone who is hungry wouldn’t sit in a room with a biscuit on the shelf all week long and wait to be spoon fed on Sunday. Dust off your Bible and dig out a word for your situation! Heaven and earth shall pass away. However, the Word is forever settled!

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Matthew 24:35

Where is He?

I wait with what feels like equal parts fear and excitement. My eyes scan the eastern horizon. Where is He? I know it won’t be much longer.  I know it will be a day of reckoning. A day of jubilation. A day of Holy reunion.

Will I know everyone? Yes. But in a heavenly way. A gathering of Saints and Angels. Glorious rejoicing. All the universe will hear and declare that Jesus is Lord of Lords, King of Kings, God of all Gods.

His mercy and grace follows us. His love pours over us. His sacrifice saves us.

There is no greater love. No other way. No. No other way to Heaven. No other way to communicate with God. No other way.  Jesus is the answer. He is the mediator. He is the shepherd.

Where is He? Look up. He is so very close.  See the waves roll in turmoil. Hear the wind moan in pain and warning. The earth cries out and all creation trembles at His return.  It will happen so quick. Sometimes I feel myself braced for the catching away. I’m ready. Are you?
