    I'm just coming off an illness myself. It was a long drawn out one. I didn't feel good for two weeks. On the up side now that I'm feeling normal again, I really appreciate feeling good. Take care of yourself.

Encourgement

Friday, January 18, 2008

A man has joy in an apt answer, and how delightful is a timely word!
Proverbs 15:23
All of us need encourgement-- somebody to believe in us. To assure and reinforce us. To help us pick up the pieces and go on. To provide us with increased determination in spite of the odds....
When we encourage others we spur them on, we stimulate and affirm them. It is helpful to remember the distinction between appreciation and affirmation. We appreciate what a person does, but we affirm who a person is. Appreciation comes and goes because it is usually related to something someone accomplishes. Affirmation goes deeper. It is directed to the person himself or herself...
I do not care how influential or secure or mature a person may appear to be, genuine encouragement never fails to help. Most of us need massive doses of it.

"And let us run with endurance. . . . keeping our eyes on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from start to finish." (Hebrews 12:1-2)
When I was in high school, I went out for track and field. I was a fairly decent short-distance runner, but I was horrible at long-distance runs. I hated to practice. But if I ever saw a cute guy in the grandstands, I had new motivation for running.
As we run this race of life, we have a better motivation than I had in high school. We run for an audience of one: Jesus Christ. He is watching us. He is praying for us. In fact, the Bible tells us that He lives to intercede for us (see Hebrews 7:25).
This is what gave young Stephen courage when he stood before his accusers who were ready to put him to death. Full of the Holy Spirit, he was given a glimpse of Jesus in heaven and said, "Look, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing in the place of honor at God's right hand"(Acts 7:56). Seeing Jesus gave Stephen the ability to run the race and finish it.
Seeing Jesus also gave Simon Peter the ability to walk on the water. As he kept the Lord in sight, He did the impossible.
It is important to keep our eyes on Jesus. Why? Because circumstances will disappoint and, at times, devastate us. People will let us down and fall short of our expectations. Feelings will come and go. But Jesus will always be there to cheer us on.
He has run before you. He is the ultimate winner. He will show you how to run. But you have to keep looking to Him.

Today's Thought

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Greetings


"When he came to his senses, he said, 'How many of my father's hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired men.' So he got up and went to his father." Luke 17-20
TODAY'S THOUGHT "When he came to his senses." It's that quick. You can be struggling for years and then there is a moment of clarity, an "aha" moment, a spiritual awakening. Like the tumblers of a lock falling in place, your mind is clear and truth is opened right before your eyes. It is a God moment. A combination of awareness, conviction, holy discontent and a sensation that "now is the time". The scales have tipped. There is more to gain from changing, than staying the same. The prodigal son saw that there was more to gain from going home than staying in the pig pen. How about us? When is it going to make more sense to fellowship with God than the world? When will we understand that there is much more satisfaction in following Christ's plan for our life, than our own? When will we believe that He really does love us unconditionally and that there is nothing we can do to make Him love us less? These are the realizations that change a life. Have you made them yet?
TODAY'S PRAYER Father, today I have come to my senses and realize the love You have for me. I choose to live for You and surrender all that I have for Your use. You are the Lord God Almighty and I have come to realize that living for You makes all the sense in the world. In Jesus Name. AMEN
