    thanks for sharing, and bringing back many memories of field trips...as a retired teaching, there were many field trips that we took. I taught the older grades, so it was our wonderful parent volunteers who took groups around.
So thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Today.....

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Have a great day, running late today. Be blessed in the Lord my friends and as Paul says, "Rejoice!." Why, because we still have a chance to get it right.



"I, yes I, am the one who comforts you. So why are you afraid of mere humans?" Isaiah 51:12 (NLT)

What is the opposite of "love"? Our first answer would no doubt be "hate." I use to think so. However, the longer I live, the more I believe "fear" is the opposite of love. True, if I am going to act the opposite of love, it would be to hate. But if I am going to live in the opposite of love, it is fear! Fear keeps us from love's reality. Fear tells us that the promises of love are nothing but lies. Fear chooses to doubt love's sincerity. Worse, it doubts the lover. When we choose to believe fear, it means we have chosen not to believe God. He says, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." And yet we act as if we are abandoned, all alone with God no where is sight. We need to start seeing God as God. We need to give up our fear beliefs and start to bond with God. We need to meditate on His love for us and then appropriate that love to every moment in our life. He is the one who comforts us. He is the one who will never leave us. He is the one who will never stop loving us. Today, believe it, rejoice in it, live as if it is true. It is.

    I agree, but had never thought of it that way. Being military sometimes people get caught in the fear and what ifs... I know I have in the past. Right now I am fearful I will eat all the cookies or snickers emoticon (JK) emoticon

    You're right...fear keeps us in a place of unbelief, where love moves us in the direction of God's best for our lives.

God is Love!

"Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping - Abraham never wavered in believing God's promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises." Romans 4:10, 20-21(NLT)

TODAY'S THOUGHT If there was ever a model for living the Christian life it is Abraham Look again at today's verses. There is no better way to exemplify how we are to live. Abraham lived in an incredible relationship with God. He was totally immersed in faith. He did everything with God in mind. Look at what Paul writes, "Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping - Abraham never wavered in believing God's promise." More than that Paul writes that Abraham was "fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises." Just like you and I, Abraham had choices to make every day. He chose to trust God. He decided that he would put his faith and hope in Jehovah. What about you? Who are you going to trust? Who will you hope in? Who will you be counting on to do what He has promised? Today, choose to live by faith in our living God. Put your full hope and trust in Him.

    To have an unwavering faith would truly be wonderful! I need to learn to "not lean to my own understanding". Faith-the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen. Hebrews 11:1

Hi...

Monday, April 20, 2009

Hi friends and teammates. Sorry I'm running behind today. When you get behind at SP, it's hard to catch up but I'm on my way. I do hope you all had a great day.

"For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am." I Corinthians 15:9-10 (NIV)

Thanks for reading my blogs.

Paul was called to be an Apostle, but he knew that it was by the grace of God. He knew that he was unworthy to serve Christ, but God's love overcame any past that Paul had. We need to come to the same realization of what God's grace has done for us. By God's grace we are His child. By God's grace we are born again and forgiven of all our wrong doing. By God's grace we are alive and living with a purpose. By God's grace we have hope. By God's grace we have a personal relationship with God. By His grace we have eternal life. All of us have a story. All of us, in one way or another is totally unworthy of grace, but then it is God's grace. Today, thank God for His marvelous grace that He has so freely given us.

Accepting The Gift Of The Cross


In our stages of growth we should become more conscious of our righteousness as opposed to our sin. Practicing a consciousness of our state of righteousness is a journey in maturity. This growth process of humanity does not have to be painful. Under the law, man was conscious of his sin continually; but under the New Covenant God desires for us to focus more on who we are and what we have in Christ Jesus.

Our own righteousness is filthy in His sight; however, the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus is our new identity. As we honestly grow in Christ our desire increases to please Him. As we grow to please Him, we become more aware of our new creation realities. These realities and more powerful than the bonds of sin because sin is no longer our master. We are not under the law but under grace according to Romans 6:14, which says, "For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law for under grace."

Does this mean that we will not miss the mark because we are under grace? By no means! It simply means that we must practice a lifestyle of walking in our redemptive rights. To refuse to grow up and walk in God's truth is to refuse to accept what Christ has made available to us. It cost the Father the blood of Jesus for us to live this life in its totality. We appropriate this life by grace. For if this growth and acceptance of righteousness came by our own works or by the law, then Christ died in vain according to Galatians 2:20-21.

His death is not in vain in our life when we recognize that we are in Christ Jesus. Maturity sets in when we meditate on the fact that Christ lives in us and we become God-inside minded. This is by no means a formula that makes us flawless, but rather creates an awareness of our purchased possession. In order words, we have more working in us internally than we have working against us externally.

As the maturity level develops in our life, it doesn't mean that we are free from the ability to sin or free the enemy tempting us with sin. We must always remember that we have an advocate with the Father, our high priest Christ Jesus, and it is through Him only that we are more than conquerors and triumphant in living this Christian life. We are assured of this because Christ Jesus is the propitiation for our sins and He is our righteousness. This righteousness is our purchased possession.

Jesus died to provide this for us and now we must possess the provision and walk in it.

    Romans 6:14, which says, "For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law for under grace."

This scripture does not give us free will to sin but God knows that because of our humanness, we will sin and because of that he has provided an advocate for us.

Be Blessed today. Love the photos of the Meet and Greet Team.

Hugs, Sunny
