We Don’t Know The Whole Story…

an inspiring prayer

 

Heavenly Father, help us remember that the jerk who cut us off in traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry and spend a few precious moments with her children.

Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can’t make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old college student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of not getting his student loans for next semester.

Remind us, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the same spot every day (who really ought to get a job!) is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.

Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together.

Heavenly Father, remind us each day that, of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not to just those who are close to us, but to all humanity. Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive, show patience, empathy and love.

Anticipation…

Posted on

 

Do not loose your hope, my dear child

For I make the new day for gladness and anticipation, rejoice and be glad in it!

And do not look to the past, or you will lose your strength

Do not reflect on concerns and those things which have happened

For they have come and gone

“Instead, be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition¬†

Make your all of your requests known to Me

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding

Will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus”¬†

(Based on Philippians 4)

You are never without Me,

Talking…

There’s no mystery

as to how you speak with me.

Just empty your heart.

Do not be afraid

nor worried in mind or soul.

For I am your Friend.

Child-like…

Listen to my words…have the faith of a child

Be curious and seek after me

When I answer you, accept what I have said

And follow Me without question

For the child has no fear, they trust who is leading them

Take note and learn from these young ones

For by their actions they teach all people

Listen to my words…have the faith of a child

Science And The Bible…(Video)

Posted on

 

Some say that science is the enemy of faith. Many believe that theories such as evolution and the Big Bang attempt to offer an non-biblical explanation of how the earth and the heavens came to be, and how life eventually populated the planet. .

But videos like the one above help to show us that not all science conflicts with the word of God. Some study disciplines such as archaeology actually help to validate the Holy Bible, while dismissing ideas and beliefs which conflict with the inspired Word given to us by the Lord.

The video is less than twelve minutes long, but is told in an entertaining and informative way. Watching it is time well spent…

The Bible…Is It Truth? (Video)

Posted on

 

Do we believe the bible to be true just because it says it is, (2 Timothy 3:16-17)? Or is there more to it than that…

This video explains how history proves the facts and accuracy of the original biblical manuscripts dating back centuries. It shares prophetic statements made in certain books of the bible, which man could not have known unless inspired by a Supreme Being. The facts presented here give logical reasoning to the bible as absolute truth.

It is only about ten minutes long, and is well worth watching. Take the time to investigate this information and let us build our faith by what it shows us!
