A New Year With The Lord

A New Year With The Lord A new year is about to unfold With new opportunities to explore Doors will open for new experiences New adventures with the Lord Remember not the former things The things of this past year The Lord will do new things in us Much more than we are aware For He will make a way for us As we put our trust in Him And He will guide our every step By His presence we have within What God has placed within our hearts We find we’ll be able to do If we look for the opportunities We’ll see the door to go through We mustn’t let anything hold us back But rise up and take our place And be all that God wants us to be With a fresh touch of His grace © By M.S.Lowndes (Free to distrubute/use as long as unaltered and copyright left with poem)

Heaven's Gift

Rev. Terry preached a message last night about "The Gift of God". It was a wonderful message and at altar call I was covered in tears, which has been a while for me! As I looked up at the closing after praying, I saw many wet eyes and realized that others had also begun to think upon God's love and his gift of His Son to us! God did a lot for me in that service that words just can't express, but I found this poem this morning and it went right along with the message. Heaven's Gift by Sandra A. Popp Heaven's gift has come to man. Mortal fate rests Within tiny hallowed hands. Shepherds singing, a shining star, Angels proclaiming, Kings bearing gifts from afar. A scene of serene glory, The weight of a holy hush, The meaning of heaven's story, 'Twas God's first CHRISTmas gift to us. Who would recall the power of that day, At the time when He was led away, Bearing a crown, a robe, and fateful wounds? Was He not the gift from heaven

Attitude of Gratitude

Pastor Davis preached a message last night on Thankfulness. He spoke on even thanking God when the doctor tells you something bad is wrong with you! You could have had it worse. He also spoke about an "Attitude of Gratitude". We should be thankful for ALL that God has done in our lives and for our spouses, children, parents and friends! Let us not be unthankful or take any of it for granted. BE THANKFUL Author Unknown Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to? Be thankful when you don't know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn. Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow. Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement. Be thankful for each new challenge, because it will build your strength and character. Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons. Be thankful when you're tir

God Has Enabled Us

(I wrote this in October 2006) Many times in my Christian walk, God has let me know he wanted me to do something. Sometimes my response would be, "Oh I can not do that"......"I'm not capable to do something like that for you God." I soon learned that if God has called us to do something, that means he has enabled us to do it! Every time I stepped out on faith and trusted him, he has showed me YES I CAN! Mark 10:27 ".....with God all things are possible." Phillipians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. " It is so easy to come up with a list of why we are not capable, educated enough, (you fill in the blank), to do a task that God has given us. You take into account Moses......he told God he could not do what God wanted him to because he wasn't a good speaker. But we see reading on his life that he was more than able to accomplish God's will in his life. God had enabled him, despite himself! S

Twas the Month Before CHRISTmas

‘Twas the month before Christmas when all through our land, Not a Christian was praying nor taking a stand. Why the PC Police had taken away, The reason for Christmas - no one could say . The children were told by their schools not to sing, About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things. It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say December 25th is just a “Holiday “. Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it! CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod Something was changing, something quite odd! Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanza In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda. As Targets are hanging their trees upside down At Lowe’s the word Christmas - was no where to be found. At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears. Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty Are words that were used to intimidate me. Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now S
