Good morning my friends!
Today will be a full day of juggling children and getting to Greenwood Community Church...on time! Augh! Being on time is not my strength! lol
The birds were singing and as I looked around I noticed my favorite flowers were beginning to blossom! While spending time in prayer a song and God's word (from the Bible) came to mind. The song "How to live" and the verses Mathew: 15:32-38
As I prayed for all the people who would be in the church today and
the struggles our family is going through, I found myself so thankful for all that God has given me! My family, the house, the wonderful view of all the flowers and the excitement of sharing God's word with others.
There are a lot of people with lost jobs, illnesses, unpaid bills and even the possibility of homelessness. Even our house is full with our grandson, granddaughter, two birth daughters and a woman with two small children. As I question how to pay our bills and feed everyone in our home I am quickly reminded of how big and how strong our God is! I imagine Him looking down on all the chaos and saying, "I will provide, be thankful in all things and enjoy the moment! This is how I want you to live!"
32: And Jesus called His disciple to Him, and said, "I feel compassion for the multitude, because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not wish to send them away hungry, let they faint on the way." 33: and the disciples said to Him, "Where would we get so many loaves in a desolate place to satisfy such a great multitude?" 34: And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" and they said, Seven and a few fish."
Verses 35 through 39: Jesus gives thanks for what little food He has and gives the food to the disciples to give to 4,000 people. Every man, woman and child had full stomachs that day.
These words are a comfort to me, because I know that if God can feed all those people....then He can feed all those living in our home, you who are struggling and the homeless!
As I typed out the conclusion of my speech, I was reminded that God is a great God and can handle all things! Yes, I will be looking at the past and the present. But, I want to also look at the future!
The song that God gave me today is:
"How to live/Turn up your music" by "Point of Grace"
Here are a view words that came to me to remind me how to live!
Turn up the music
Turn it up loud
Take a few chances
Let it all out
You won't regret it
Lookin' back from where you have been
Cuz it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did
It's how you live
Oh wherever you are and wherever you've been
Now is the time to begin
So give to the needy
And pray for the grieving
Even when you don't think that you can
'Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
So think of your fellow man
Make peace with God and make peace with yourself
'Cause in the end there's nobody else.
Here is the video for those of you who want to hear the entire song ;-)
So, my friends it is ok to look back and see the present. But be sure to rejoice for what God can do for our future.
God's not done with us yet!!!
Have hope my friends!
Here is where I will speaking:
5600 East Belleview Avenue

God bless you all!
Know that God has it all under control...
I look forward to seeing some of you tonight!
Enjoy the moment =)
