Take Courage if Success is not to be Today!

Take Courage If Success is not to be Today, Try Again, it will Come Tomorrow!

Take Courage That if Success is not to be Today, Try Again, it Will Come Tomorrow!

Take Courage if Success is not to be Today,  Try Again, it Will Come Tomorrow!

Good morning!  Today I was thinking about courage.  It takes courage to get up out of bed in the mornings.  I know that sound a little drastic, but hey, we live in a world that is full of dramatic and drastic changes every day.   Courage is the get-up and go of every success.  Without Courage, no chances of success or failure would have ever been attempted.  I would rather try and fail than to stay seated and never attempt to succeed.  The picture of the squirrel depicts a failed attempt to get birdseed, but if you’ve ever had squirrels at your birdfeeders, you realize really quickly that they do not let failure deter them.  They continue to come to that birdfeeder over and over again until they figure it out.   They take courage that if success is not to be today, try again,  it will come tomorrow, and so it goes with us. Take courage my friends if you’ve made a courageous attempt and it did not work out quite the way that you thought.  Pick yourself up and learn from it, and take a deep breath and start again. Take Courage if Success is not to be Today,  Try Again, it Will Come Tomorrow!

You Are the Chocolate to my Peanut butter!

18 Jun

You Are the Chocolate to my Peanut Butter!

You are the Chocolate to my Peanut Butter! I make the cookies pictured in this post all of the time. (free recipe included below) They have chocolate and peanut butter which my husband and children love. Chocolate and peanut butter are great by themselves, but when you combine them they are terrific.

You may be asking,” Well what is the point of this post?”  It is my belief that no man is an island. We were all created by a Master Designer to connect and intersect in each other’s lives. Why? I believe that when we connect, we have something that the other person needs or they have something that we need. When we really connect is when we both can give and take in the relationship.  

I’ve always heard that fellowship could be described as two people in the same boat going in the same direction!  My husband and I have been in the same boat for 39 years, and are in fellowship. Yes, it may sound corny but my husband is the Chocolate to my Peanut Butter.  Jesus said that if two or three come together in agreement that he would be in their midst.  When you come into agreement with someone and decide to fellowship with them, it is a powerful combination!

Matthew 18:18-20 King James Version (KJV)

18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.   

If Jesus put emphasis on the fact that when we come into agreement that He personally comes to fellowship with us and also that we can see answered prayers, how important are the right connections?  Maybe you have never found anyone that you can truly connect with. If that is the case, may I suggest that you connect with the One who designed you first.  God himself wants to connect with you.    If it is just you and the Lord in your boat, would anything be impossible?  When you connect with the Lord and put Him first, He will bring the right people into your life to connect and to have wonderful fellowship.  Everybody needs to be Chocolate or Peanut Butter to someone else.  Connecting is why we were put on this planet!   If you already have someone that you connect with and can fellowship and come into agreement with then you can relate to this post. You too can say to someone, “You are the Chocolate to my Peanut Butter!”

Love Never Fails

13 Apr

Love Never Fails!

      Good morning all!

Love Never Fails! This morning I was pleasantly surprised by my

two children!  They simply wanted to show me that

they loved me and so while I was outside on my front

porch, they cleaned my bedroom for me.  They did

special little things for me one of which was to create

a little area in my bedroom where I could sit and read.

They know what Mommy loves.

     As I thought about how much they wanted to bless

me and please me, I thought about how  that

I could possibly be pleasing to others.  Without trying to be

preachy or too corny,  the best way I know is

to simply let the love of our Father GOD show through

me.  I hope this blog is one of those little ways!  As

I pour my heart into what I feel the Lord would have

me to say today, it is simply that He loves you.

   It doesn’t matter to him what you do, or do not do,

he chose to love you.  You can’t earn his love, he just

lavishes it upon you every day.  You might be saying

“Hey girl, I don’t know what you’re talking about, my

life is in the toilet right now! How could anyone

love  me  when I am like this?”    I would say to you,

that you’re the very one he wanted to speak to today,

“I love you with an everlasting love!”  He says.  Will you

just fall back into his loving arms and let him love you

today?  I have fallen today!  His arms are safe and feel

wonderful! Love Never Fails!

God Is Not Through With Us Yet!

Isaiah 64:8 But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

Baby-Cardinal-in-Hands_iab

Can you guess what kind of bird this is? Below are several hints:

  1.  It is the official bird of at least 7 states.
  2. These birds do not migrate, but have adapted to northern and southern climates.
  3. They frequent birdfeeders
  4. Unlike some birds both female and male birds sing.
  5. The male bird has  a brilliant red color and the female is an attractive brown
  6. A baseball team has been named after them!
  7. They usually have three eggs at a time.
  8. The male often feeds the female especially when she is on the nest.

 

Have you had enough hints to guess the type of bird? If you guessed the Cardinal you are correct.  I wanted to put this little homely looking bird up as a visual lesson, because all too many times we look on the outside of a thing and judge it before we even know what is on the inside. While looking at this little gray mass of feathers with its little pump knot, it is hard to believe how something so unattractive could become something so beautiful! This bird in my opinion is one of the most brilliant and beautiful birds.  When it comes to my birdfeeder or sets in a blooming dogwood tree, my breath catches in my throat for a second because it is so exquisitely gorgeous! When it sings its song, I have to stop and think about the many songs that the Lord gave his creatures to sing his praise!

I know that when people look at me, they may not see beauty, but please don’t judge me yet!  God is not finished with me. Like this little bird, I may not be the most attractive thing, but what the Lord is making me into is breathtakingly beautiful!  You may say, “well that is a very conceited thing to say!”  But I say unto you, I am on the Potter’s wheel, I am being made into his image and his image is indeed perfect and beautiful! You too are on His wheel!

7.Jeremiah (KJV) 18:2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.

8.Jeremiah 18:3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.

9.Jeremiah 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

6.Isaiah 64:8 (KJV)  But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

We all have our flaws and according to the scripture we are made to be marred in the Potter’s hand!  Why? I think we all have flaws so that we will not be judged by others! This truth puts us all in the same boat if you will!  We all have need of the Perfect One Jesus! If we find out whom we are in Him and that we are made in His image and began walking in that calling or purpose, we are just like these gorgeous Cardinals.  Our life becomes a song of praise to the Master!  So don’t judge me yet!  God’s not through with me! I am spinning on the wheel being made into another vessel that will hold His glory!

I hope that the next time you see a beautiful Cardinal or hear its song of praise to the Master that you will realize that you are a precious vessel of clay in the Potter’s hand and that regardless of what you are going through, that you are valuable.  You’re his greatest creation created in His image!  You are being changed from faith to faith and from glory to glory!
