My name is Pride. I am a cheater.

I cheat you of your God-given destiny.....because you demand your own way.

I cheat you of contentment...because you "deserve better than this."

I cheat you of knowledge...because you already know it all.

I cheat you of healing...because you're too full of me to forgive.

I cheat you of holiness...because you refuse to admit when you're wrong.

I cheat you of vision...because you'd rather look in the mirror than out the window.

I cheat you of genuine friendship...because nobody's going to know the real you.

I cheat you of love...because real romance demands sacrifice.

I cheat you of greatness in heaven...because you refuse to wash another's feet on earth.

I cheat you of God's glory....because I convince you to seek your own.

My name is Pride. I am a cheater.
You like me because you think I'm always looking out for you. Untrue.
I'm looking to make a fool of you.
God has so much for you, I admit, but don't worry.....
If you stick with me
you'll NEVER know.......

Isn't it enough?

I hear stories all the time about being too busy. We have no time for Bible study, no time for prayer.
My heart aches to hear these words.
I used to be there, not so long ago.
I went to the father when I was in need then felt guilty for asking. I hadn't been there any other time,seemed it was always just asking.

I spend alot of my time now just thanking.Thanking Him for the day He made for me.
I am not promised tomorrow, gotta live today to the fullest.
That may mean just listening to someone else even when I am in a rush.

You see God gives us opportunities each day. How many times do we miss it.
Hungry ,hurting people all around us,yet we don't open our mouths to say Jesus loves you, or
to just give a hug when no words are needed.

The Bible is a piece of clothing I have to put on daily, it's my weapon, my protector, my counselor,my guide, my how to book, my what do I say or do now pamphlet, my get a better attitude  brochure.
Why would we ever go through the day without it.

I have tried to make it through the day without it, I have ignored it for weeks and months on end.
It was the most miserable time in my life. That book we call God's word, well you see it makes a difference.
I can not make it through the day without it.It goes where ever I go.
I challenge you to just open it and read wherever the pages fall.

You see one day we will stand nose to nose and eyeball to eyeball with God the Father.
He will ask, "why was my son's blood not enough for you"? You will answer.
I want to be able to say," Thank you for your Son"!

Things of this earth mean nothing, except love one another.

When I am afaid
I will trust in You
In God, whose Word I praise
In God I trust,I will not fear
Psalms 56:3-4

Just thoughts in my head today..................

on your knees

There is nothing like being on your knees before the Lord even if it is just for a minute.

God in everything is what He wants from us....even in Baseball!

Thinking and Thanking

I have really been thinking for the last 10 days or so about my life. What have I done with it what have I not done. We all have a purpose, and some days I don't feel like I know what that is, or what to do with what I do know.

Today I ponder my 1,000 gifts. It's something new I started a few days ago. Writing down all the gifts God has given me and being thankful for them. Sure makes you look at this world and the people in it differently. Even makes me handle problems, stress and issues differently than I ever would have before.
 Like gift # 11 trials that make you grow
                #20 laundry piled on the bed
                # 30 friends for lunch
               #  101 Wal-Mart
               #152 a field of donkeys
               # 155 afternoon with Matt shopping

Yes all gifts just like the last breath I took...........Makes you stop and think,may even change your life. It has mine. I am not even close to 1,000 yet but I sure love the time getting there. Jesus didn't promise it would be easy, He said we would have trials to build our faith, and nothing more than we can bear.

With tears rolling down my face...# 161 tears of joy........Missing grandma today. I know I have an anchor in Heaven.......I can't wait to get there.
