Sunday scripture

My soul glorifies The Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
For he has been mindful
Of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will
Call me blessed for the Mighty One has
Done great things for me-
Holy is his name.
Luke 1:47-49

How will you remember them?

You meant to hurt me, but God turned your evil into good to save the lives of many people, which is being done.
Genesis 50:20

This morning as I was watching the coverage of the Connecticut shooting, (Good Morning America), there was a reminder to not let this tragedy be what we remember but let the children lives be remembered.  

With that they challenged us to a random act of kindness in remembrance of a child whose life was taken too soon.

So far the response has been amazing.

Things from a donation of Christmas trees, to strangers paying off layaway's   All this in remembrance of the victims.

How will you remember them?

Power of the Holy Spirit

I wanted to give an update on our bible study on Not a fan.

I have to tell you this book really asks hard questions.  Questions we probably don't like to be asked if we are honest with ourselves.  

Sometimes it's good to be asked hard questions because it gives us the opportunity to improve ourselves.

This week the chapter revolved around the Holy Spirit.

I don't know about you, but when I was growing up I didn't really hear that much about the Holy Spirit.

It was more of a mystery.

But while we may not have a huge understanding of what it entails, Jesus does tell us that when he is gone he is sending one greater than himself that we can do even better things than he did.  

That is hard to imagine for me, that while the disciples had Jesus here on earth with him, he said with the power of the Holy Spirit we could do even greater things than he.


I don't know about you but some days I have a difficult time doing the simplest of things, to think that I have the power to do miracles seems totally surreal.

But that is exactly what the bible tells us, that if we believe, and call on the Holy Spirit (with a sincere heart), we cannot imagine the power that we have.

I don't think we have a clue of what power we have as followers of Christ.   

The question is do we believe it?  Really?  

If we do believe it, then do the actions of our lives reflect it?

20 Days till Christmas

Where has the time gone?

I  can't believe it is already December 5th.

With all the hustle and bustle time has slipped away from me.  I have some pictures to share from our annual Thanksgiving trip, and I will as soon as I set down and put them on the computer.

I read this today.  

What a great story of God's grace, and promises is we would just trust him with everything.
