Everyday our lives are so busy with so many obligations. For example, those of us that are married, need time with our spouses to cultivate a relationship that will last. Then there are the needs of our children, the pets, the household chores, other relationships (family and friends), work, church activities, social functions, and school work, etc. How do we manage all these demands and still find the time to pray and read God's word so that our spiritual man can be fed and grow stronger. This is one of the questions that I always ask myself. I hope this blog will help make it easier to balance our busy lives so that we can make the time needed to be the person that God desires us to be. May I be a blessing to you.

The Sand Dollar Legend

The Sand Dollar Legend
Upon this odd-shaped seashell a legend grand is told, about the life of Jesus, that wondrous tale of old. At its center you will see, there seems to be a star, like the one that led the shepherds and wise men from afar. Around its surface are the marks of nails and thorns and spear, suffered by Christ upon the cross; the wounds show plainly here. But there is also an Easter lily, clear for us to see, the symbol of Christ's resurrection for all eternity.

Live Life To the Fullest

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind....Dr. Seuss.

Dr. Seuss is right, we must be ourselves no matter what and we need to learn to live our lives to the fullest no matter what others may think about us. It is not always easy to do this but it is a sign of spiritual maturity when you understand John 10:10, Jesus stated, ".....I am come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." The abundant life is your heritage because of the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus, and you must learn to embrace it.

What is important is what God thinks about you, not what others would like to impose on you. Learn from God's word what He says about you. For example, in Deuteronomy 28:13 it states, "The Lord will make you the head and not the tail..." That means He wants you to come out on top no matter what the circumstances. Learn His promises and begin to confess them, for they are the steps towards an abundant life. Be the optimist, and see the glass as half-full and begin to trust that God will overflow you with blessing that the glass will not be able to contain.
