Jesus Calling: A Powerful Thought for Today

cross-66700__340

While the new devotional book that I’m writing now is different from author Sarah Young’s devotional Jesus Calling : Enjoying Peace in His Presence, read the entry below and think about your present concerns. And as you do, I hope you’ll be lifted up into high places with Him.

Make it a great day!

God bless you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WHEN YOU ARE PLAGUED by a persistent problem—one that goes on and on—view it as a rich opportunity. An ongoing problem is like a tutor who is always by your side. The learning possibilities are limited  only to your willingness to be teachable. In faith, thank Me for your problem. Ask me to open your eyes and your heart to all that I am accomplishing through this difficulty. Once you have become grateful for a problem, it loses its power to drag you down. On the contrary, your thankful attitude will lift you up into heavenly places with Me. From this perspective, your difficulty can be seen as a slight, temporary distress that is producing for you a transcendent Glory never to crease! – Isaiah 30:20-21, 2 Corinthians 4:17 (AMP)

 – Sarah Young, Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence, December 18 entry.

LOOKING for the LIGHT: Encouragement for today!

God pushes you to the edge

Hi!
I hope this brings a little encouragement your way today. Life is hard so it’s best to trust God with all the details of your life.

Please see the tab on my blog labeled “Relationship with God” for more information on how to have a relationship with God as well. It’s not about being religious — and a bunch of dos and don’ts.

Make it a great day!

God Bless You!

The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady (pictured below), moved to a nursing home today. Even though she is legally blind, she is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied. Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move to the nursing home necessary.
After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready. As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window. “I love it,” she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy. “Mrs. Jones, you haven’t seen the room …. just wait.” “That doesn’t have anything to do with it,” she replied. “Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged, it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do.
Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away, just for this time in my life.” She went on to explain, “Old age is like a bank account, you withdraw from what you’ve put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories. Thank you for your part in filling my memory bank. I am still depositing.”
And with a smile, she said: “Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred: Forgive.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.
6. I’ll add a little more: Trust God.

Billy Graham’s 95th Birthday Message ~ Nov 7 & 8

Billy Graham’s 95th Birthday Message

My Hope with Billy Graham
A special program is being televised in a few days entitled MY HOPE.  Billy Graham will be celebrating his 95th birthday in November and is celebrating in a special way by giving what is most likely a final message which he has been preparing for some time.  He hopes that Christians will invite non-believers into their home as they view the program and then share their own salvation message with them.

The program will be televised as follows:

November 7th @ 8:00pm Trinity Broadcast Network

November 7th @ 10:00pm Fox Cable News

November 8th @ 7:00pm Channel 5

For more info, Google: Billy Graham message
