The Statue of Liberty and The Cross of Jesus!

        I was looking at a friend’s pictures the other day and I saw a picture of the Statue of Liberty.  I have always wanted to go to New York and see the Statue and go to Washington to see things that represent our country.  I want to see things that I was taught about in history class or heard on the news. I would love to someday take my grandkids to experience this.  It is a shame that as the world and time move on, some of these things mean less and less.  Our flag is not held in the honor it used to be, they want to take “In God We Trust” off our money and chance the constitution and laws that have served our country well. This scares me.
     Something scares me more about the world’s attitude towards another great place in history and that is “The Cross”, the cross where Jesus hung and bled and died for all of us. They don’t teach about this in school any more.  I remember when my teacher read the bible to us each morning and we prayed.  Now that is not acceptable or permitted. We must take up this cross, we must teach our children, grandchildren and the world about the cross and what happened there and why. 

     As much as I would love to carry my grands to see the things of history, how much more important is it for me to teach them about Jesus?  As the news gets worse and the world becomes scarier, we need to step up, step up and tell more people about Jesus and how He has already overcome all this.  We need to teach them who He is and how to have Him in their heart and soul.  We may not be able to change the things to come in this life but we can change where we are going when it is over.  Some things do scare me nowadays but I know bottom line, no matter what, if worst case scenario happens, then I will be in heaven. Will you?  Will your kids, grandkids, sisters, brothers, neighbors, friends or enemies?  If you are not sure, tell them, ask them, share Jesus with someone today.

God bless,

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
