M&M's, not candy but Mission's And Me (lesson for my church kids)

     We have our annual Mission's conference in April each year.  We have a week of Missionaries coming in to share their hearts and fields.  We have a preacher or preachers who share why we should be involved in Missions and how we can be and yet never leave our homes.  This is one of my favorite times of year in our church.
     Our Pastor, Bro. JD Weido says that though we have a Mission's conference one week a year, missions should be in our hearts and lives, monthly, weekly, daily. April is coming up soon so I wanted to get the kids hearts looking towards missions now.  
     I am planning a special small lesson once each month starting with this month, January and leading up to April.  This past Sunday, we talked about what a missionary is.  We talked about though we can't all be missionaries we can be involved and each of us should be.  I asked them who should be involved in missions (m) and they said me (m).  To help them remember this I showed them a candy box.
Do you see why I shared this candy.  All kids recognize M&M.'s.  But I told them to look at the box with new eyes.  M&M= Missions and Me. And yes after they finally understood we just had to open the box and enjoy a few.

Now we know who should be involved in Missions and next month, we will learn how we can be. I hope you will be back here next month to see what we learned.

God bless til next time,

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.  
God bless,

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…
