Wow. Words this morning from our deacon!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I must share this...too often working through trying to get healthy (especially after years of neglect like me), we start to feel a bit sorry for being overwhelmed. This is what our deacons wrote this

--"If we begin our day with any notion of scarcity, not-enoughness, victimhood, or "I deserve," I promise you the day will not be good--for you or for those around you. Nor will God be glorified.

Maybe we all should begin our days with a litany of satisfaction, abundance, and enoughness. God, you have given me another day of totally gratuitous life: my health, my eyes, my ears, my mind, my taste, my family, my freedom, my education, clean water, more than enough food, a roof over my head, a warm bed and blanket, friends, sunshine, a beating heart, and your eternal love and guidance.

To any one of these we must say, "And this is more than enough!""
