The Bottom Line

This is my prayer for my youngest child who is full of life and love. May God bold you into exactly who HE wants you to be and may you be obedient to HIM always!

9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality. ~ Romans 12:9-13 (NIV 1984)

It Really Is All About Me!

I tell myself sometimes that this (whatever it is) is ALL about me...seriously...

It really is all about me...

It is all about how I'm supposed to use this situation to learn, grow in my faith and become who JESUS wants me to be...through the struggles and trials that come my way...how will I respond...what will I do...who am I becoming...am I bringing glory to God...?

What am I willing to sacrifice because of what God has called me to do?  What will I do without in order to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ?

All that being said it is all about me when it is happening to me...

And it is all about you when it is happening to you...

But not in a selfish way...in a way that humbles me and you and shows us our need for a forgiving, loving, teaching God...

We need each other...we need prayer, we need support, we need encouragement.  Be there for your brothers and sisters...be there for them when it is all about them...and they will be there for you when it's all about you.

Actions Speak Louder

I don't usually share a lot of quotes here since I have a blog dedicated to quotes, but this one just fit...

"With Jesus, actions always speak louder than words—look no further than the cross." ~ J. Dickerson
