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.

To Everything There Is A Season

It states in Ecclesiastics 3:1 that "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."

When I first began my Christian life, I did not quite understand what this scripture meant, but the longer that I live and walk with Christ, the more I began to understand that God uses seasons in our lives to teach us lessons that will draw us closer to Him, to help us mature and become useful for His service.

Seasons in our lives give us a testimony that not only helps us to overcome, but that helps others build their faith as we share our experiences. For example, as we testify about an experience that we have gone though and we tell about how God moved on our behalf, the telling solidifies our faith and makes us stronger, and at the same time it helps the hearer believe that if God can do it for them, then He'll do it for me.

Seasons, are learning tools that God uses to perfect our faith. Therefore, we must learn to embrace them and trust that God means them for our good and it is not a punishment, but a test of our faith.
