guidance.

Some people think the Bible is full of rules that make their life miserable.

Actually, the Bible instructs the way a good and loving parent would instruct their child, with the intention to guide and direct so the child would be safe.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

shine!

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost.

J.R. Tolkein

Rejection is painful.

Quiet down.

Speak up.

Too tall.

Too short.

You’re just not quite right.

Says who?

God likes variety. Look at the flowers. Trees. Insects. Fish!

Are there more than what we need? Apparently not in God’s mind.

Be who God made you to be. Love yourself. It might clear up alot of your problems!

blessings.

sand

Write your hurts in the sand.

God sends the wind to erase the sting of pain and he collects your tears.

Carve your blessings in stone.

Let the goodness and gratitude stand tall in your memory.

Why?

Because if you allow it, the injuries will always be in your thoughts.

Sand is fleeting. Let it go.

Stone is permanent. It will anchor you.

assurance.

He’s got the whole world in his hands.

I am … the beginning and the ending, said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

mothers.

Mothers have a peculiar strength.

She endures childbirth, carrys heavy burdens, and perseveres through the storms of life. Truly, the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

Yet, deeply within the reservoir of her strength lies tender sensitivity.

Mothers cry.

Silently.

Privately.

Her tears washes away the residue of concerns.

It’s God’s way.

protection.

It’s more difficult not to believe in God…than it is to believe in God.

His protection is evident.

Did you know the earth is surrounded with a  magnetic field which protects us from harmful solar wind particles?

Only a loving, caring Creator would do this to protect us.

But sometimes, it doesn’t feel like God is protecting us, does it? Tragedies, loss, and pain all point to not caring.

But these things come to all of us. One reason is we don’t understand everything. Another reason is we live in a world that is not perfected.

God works the bad things out for good. He redeems our situations.

Some solar particles get through the magnetic field.

It produces the Aurora Borealis.

Life. It’s all how you look at it.
