Wonderfully Complex People

Wonderfully Complex People

Friends .. after a good full nights rest and a fairly clear mind .. haha .. please trust me when I say .. each and everyone of us .. that’s right .. every single person on this earth is indeed a miracle of God’s workmanship .. for it’s true .. we’re all “wonderfully complex” people .. and yes .. most of time we seem to underestimate or overestimate our value .. we seem to flucxuate between thinking we’re failures and dissappointment .. to the thinking we’re God’s gift to the world .. haha .. and friends .. both of these extremes are totally incorrect .. for the reality is .. every single one of us have sinned and fallen short of His glory .. and none of us are worthy because of anything we’ve done .. no...

Beyond Compassion

Beyond Compassion

As Believers we want to please God .. we want Him to like us .. we want Him to choose us .. and yes .. we absolutely want to be His favorite .. haha .. so .. we jump through hoops .. we serve every need we can find .. and yes .. we find ourselves constantly asking Him for forgiveness .. while all the while .. refusing to believe we’ve done enough good to wipe away all of the bad .. haha .. oh but friends .. it’s my guess that God shakes his head at us when we act this way .. for the truth is .. all He really wants and desires from us is that we reach out to Him as an act of faith .. and yes .. trust that He is in fact .. who He says He is .. while simply stopping to rest in His love and mercy .. for yes sweet friends .. He wants us to believe in His...

Gauges Not Guides

Gauges Not Guides

God designed each of us with emotions .. and yes ..  as we all know .. they can run hastily ..  haha .. oh but friends ..  what we must remember .. our emotions are to be gauges and not guides .. they’re meant to report to us .. but they’re not our boss .. haha ..  and yes .. when we deal with our emotions .. we need to see them for what they truly are .. take anger for instance  .. it comes to surface when we feel like we’ve been treated unfairly ..  while on the other side of that coin .. we carry guilt .. haha .. this emotion is produced when we feel we’ve been unfair .. however .. both of them are here to instruct us .. and yes .. inform us .. for without them .. we would simply be like robots passing through life .. totally unable to...

Let it Go Let it Go Let it Go

So many of us carry around the burden of resentments .. haha .. and yes friends .. those resentments .. they’re like heavy blocks constantly holding us back from loving others .. and yes .. even from loving ourselves .. however .. what we need to understand .. haha .. those resentments .. they don’t punish anyone other than ourselves .. they become hardened chunks of anger that bind our heart until it literally aches .. haha .. oh but friends .. it’s when we can wake up to the truth .. haha .. and yes .. muster up the strength and courage to simply seek out and ask God for help to get past it .. that He does .. haha .. and yes .. it’s then we’ll find those heavy chains loosening and dissolving .. right in front of our very eyes .....

Moving on Through

Moving on Through

Many of us believe that nothing happens by chance when we live in God’s world .. we believe that because we know in our heart that He watches over us .. and yes .. that He’s intimately involved in everything that happens .. we simply trust  .. He’s concerned about each of us as we’re making our way through this gauntlet of tears and joys that come with life  ..  for yes .. we believe there’s a reason for everything  .. even the smallest of  things ..  however ..  the trick is .. haha ..  not to overlook those small things .. while at the same time .. not give them total priority .. for yes sweet friends  .. we need to take things in stride .. we need to trust in Him .. and yes .. we need to simply do our best .. to be the best way we can...

God at Work

God at Work

I love to watch God work .. haha .. sometime the things He does is so very obvious .. while others times .. we completely let it pass us by totally unnoticed .. however .. that doesn’t matter to Him .. haha .. no .. He keeps on working in our lives whether we’re paying attention or not .. for yes .. the blessings await us either way .. oh but .. it’s when we focus our heart and mind on Him .. that in turn .. allows us to see just what He’s up to .. for yes .. we’ll see the pieces falling together all around us .. haha .. yes friends .. for some silly reason .. we all have these preconceived ideas of how He works .. and the truth is .. it can be a stumbling block to our perception .. haha .. for yes .. there’ve been many times...

Memories

I’ve been dealing with our family house over in Pensacola over the last month or so .. haha .. my mother passed away three years ago next month and we’re just getting around to doing something with the darn thing .. it’s old .. it’s in need of repair .. but yet .. it holds a whole lot of memories .. some that really make me miss my mom .. haha .. to tell you the truth .. I had no idea just much it would ware on me to deal with this .. when we we’re over there .. I never walked into the room where my brother passed away .. nor did I go to the porch where my grandmother sat .. I didn’t even realize it at the time .. but now .. as I’m getting call after call after call about it .. haha .. those old memories keep flooding...
