Christmas reminds me, that GOD came to be "with us" ... the "us" that rejected Him, wanted things our own way - the "us" who thought we knew best ... yet GOD wanted to be "with us" ... thank you LORD for loving us, despite of "us" ... thank you for the gift of salvation, through Jesus Christ. .... God with us - Immanuel.

"God did what we wouldn’t dare dream. He did what we couldn’t imagine. He became a man so we could trust him. He became a sacrifice so we could know him. And he defeated death so we could follow him.
It defies logic. It’s a divine insanity. Yet, it is the very impossibility of it all that makes it possible. For only God could create a plan this mad. Only a Creator beyond the fence of logic could offer such a gift of love. What man cannot do, God does.
So, when it comes to goodies and candy, cherub cheeks and red noses, go to the North Pole. But when it comes to eternity, forgiveness, purpose, and truth, go to the manger. Kneel with the shepherds. Worship the God who dared to do what man dared not dream."

God is the strength of my life ... He makes a way for me in the wilderness ... He prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies ... even tho' i walk through the valley of the shadow of death - even there He walks with me and comforts me ... there is no other Friend like Jesus ...

i know that "expect the unexpected" is a term used on some reality shows ... but that is also kind of how God operates too ... tho' He does warn us ahead of time, using examples of His work in the lives of others (the Bible) - yet when our "normal" goes out the window (to accomplish God's purposes) we get nervous, worried and fearful ... i like "normal" ... "safe, cozy" ... "predictable" ... perfectly good words in my world ... yet, i know i need my normal to be shaken - so that God can be made known ...
just something i was thinking about ... blessings on your November!

"The covenant of grace has no stipulations whatsoever. We, without any worthiness, may venture on the promise of God that was made to us in Christ Jesus, when He said, "He that believeth on Him is not condemned" (John 3:18). It is a blessing to know that the grace of God is free to us at all times, without preparation, without suitability, without money, and without price! "I will love them freely." These words invite backsliders to return indeed, the text was especially written for such– "I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely." Backslider, surely the generosity of the promise will at once break your heart, and you will return and seek your injured Father's face."

"Has He once failed to justify our trust? Ah, no! Our God has not left us at any time. We have had dark nights, but the star of love has shown forth amid the blackness ... We have gone through many trials, but never to our detriment, always to our advantage. The conclusion from our past experiences is that He who has been with us in six troubles will not forsake us in the seventh. What we have known of our faithful God proves that He will keep us to the end."Charles Spurgeon

One of our on-line Pastors said this: "God is an export at bringing GOOD out of bad" ... the bible is full of examples to prove just this point ... HE is always always always a GOOD Father ....

There is nothing more encouraging for a believer then the thought of Jesus return ... live each day with that HOPE ... FOCUS on JESUS and our earthly cares will seem smaller ... get to know the ONE who we will spend eternity with ... even so, "come Lord Jesus" ...

Isaiah 40:28-29 28Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

As i was enjoying my morning coffee and farmer's market flowers, i was reminded again that we live in the present ... we only have today ... all things in it are new ... it will then roll over and become tomorrow's memory, never to be savoured in quite the same way again. something that absolutely thrilled us yesterday, may only bring a brief smile today ... so enjoy the newness of this very moment ... live in the present ... it's nice to dust off yesterday's memories to look at - but ENJOY the dust free moment you are in ...

"Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:18 ...
my thought is that for those of us who are redeemed by the blood and living daily for Jesus - everything we encounter is there for a purpose ...

we are only guaranteed the moment we currently occupy ... and that is all ... like the grass that grows, then withers ... a mere moment in time ... but GOD, gave us His only Son Jesus - that by believing in Him - we might have more than just that wisp of time ... we can have eternity with Him.

The day will dawn SOON that sin will be done away with ... we won't be battling each other because of the devil's planted seeds on the earth ... God will totally eradicate it, and we will only know His Presence & love ... sinless ... imagine! But until that day ... put on the whole armour of God ...

in our day and age of untruth passing for truth ... of right being proclaimed wrong ... stay the course, read the bible ... as Billy Graham once said, " “I’ve read the last page of the Bible. It’s all going to turn out all right.” " ...

Live for Jesus ... live according to the bible ... love others, but don't expect love returned from everyone. It's sad to say, but some folks hate GOD so much, that it will reflect on those who believe in Him ... Life is short - eternity is long ... live with eternity in mind.

"We are not far from home - a moment will bring us there." Charles Spurgeon.
"Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."
The Apostle Paul to the Corinthians - text in 1 Corinthians 15:51-53

i have always loved this verse ... Jesus was blessing me - from 2000 years ago ... i BELIEVE in HIM, i have confessed my sin and need of the salvation that HE bought with HIS blood ... i have not seen HIM, yet i believe in HIM ... therefore, HE blessed me - because HE saw that i would come to faith ... and it's the same for ALL who come to HIM through faith ...
