Again I Say Rejoice!

March 20, 2007

Just a quick note to let ya’ll know that I have a new logo!

My friend, Anne Marie Goodrich, designed it for me. You can find her over at her website: http://www.goodrichdesign.net. She does FABULOUS work! She also has a website called MyLifeSeeds.com. It has some great blog stickers! I’m going to see if I can post one. If not, it’s probably because I have the free version of WordPress, but that’s okay — I like free. 🙂

Just as a side note, Anne Marie has been published before in numerous publications. Some of you might remember Chicken Soup for the Soul series? She was one of the writers! Again — go check out her work.

All of this reminds me today of what Paul said over 2,000 years ago, and what Israel Houghton sings about:

“Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, Rejoice!”
Philippians 4:4 (KJV)

What do you have to rejoice about today?

He’s Holding Your Hand

March 15, 2007

I just finished reading Don Piper’s book, “90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death & Life“.

It is a quick read, as I read it in three days during my spare time, but it is a great story of one man’s visit to heaven when he died for 90 minutes. The focus of the book, to me, is the wonderful people who prayed for this man during his death, recovery and those who helped his family during this trial.

His story helps me to reinforce that with God’s help you can make it through any situation that God has placed you in.

90 Minutes In Heaven

Quick reflection for me is when I read Chapter 13 entitled, “The Clasping Hand“, Don Piper says, “The angel gripping my hand was God’s way of sustaining me and letting me know that he would not let go of me no matter how hard things became.” I recall in December a time when someone was clasping my hand during one of my many cry sessions to God. Don’s words capture what happened to me too!

Hebrews 1:14 (NLT)
Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will
inherit salvation.

In God I Trust

March 13, 2007

Psalm 56:10-11 (NLT)

In God, whose word I praise,
in the LORD, whose word I praise-

11 in God I trust; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?

Man can’t do anything to me. I have God on my side. Thank you Lord for reminding me.

Come As A Child

March 1, 2007

“I assure you, anyone who doesn’t have their kind of faith will never get into the Kingdom of God.”
Mark 10:15

I read these words of Jesus when he was telling the disciples to let the children come to him. He was talking to them and letting them know that He wants us to come with childlike faith. I thought about these words and remembered when I was a kid. I would defend my dad or mom to anyone if they said ANYTHING about them. I would today too. Hi mom and dad! 🙂

I was thinking that we should be like these children when we are living our daily lives.

My daddy is stronger.. My daddy is bigger. My daddy is smarter. My daddy owns this land. My daddy CAN DO IT ALL!

I sure do love my Father! He is my Daddy!
