Hello, friend! In just a couple of Sunday's it will be Mother's Day! Ephesians 6:1-3 tells us to honor our father and mother... but guess what? It is a commandment ...followed by a promise...it will go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on earth!! That is a pretty good deal, right?!! And if you are truthful- you probably already know that if you honor your parents, your life is much better!
Sometimes, you might feel like what you do and say to your parents doesn't really matter... but, it REALLY does matter! In fact, if you don't honor your parents- then your life will not go so well. Jesus loves us and wants us to enjoy this life He gave us- that is why He gave us such special people to take care of us. Not just on Mother's Day, but everyday... honor your dad and momma! Life is just better!!
Hello, friend! Do you like riddles? I do:) How about this one, what has one eye, yet cannot see?..... A needle!! LOL! Riddles are just phrases of words put together to get us to think and draw us in to what is being talked about. John 1:1 kinda sounds like a riddle. Why do you think that God had John write the first verse of the book of John like this...
In the beginning was the WORD-
And the WORD was with God,
And the WORD was God.
Hmmmm.... Who or what is God saying in this verse? If we look a little further in the book John at John 1:14 we will read that the WORD is a human being, and The One and Only. You might know who God is talking about now, but watch and see!
If you have never read the Bible- the book of John is truly an awesome place to start!! It is packed with Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. Being one of the four gospels, it teaches so much about how Jesus lived and wants us to live. Praying you are in the Word and spending some time with Jesus!
Hello, friend! Are you ever lonely? Did you know that God wants us to have friends... He created us to want friends. Ecclesiastes 4:12 tells us that a cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Shadreck, Meshek, and Abednego stuck together even though they knew they could be killed for obeying God's WORD. We all need godly friends we can count on through good times and bad. When we stick together and spur each other on... we can stand tall!
Jesus, my best friend is always with me, know matter where I am... if you don't have very many friends pray for some. God wants us to have friends who love Him!
Hello, friend! Do you remember what my favorite part of creation is? That's right- the sky. Today, we are going to look at fun facts about the sun to help us see how BIG God is! The universe is so large and full of mystery that we could never study enough about it to discover all there is to know, EVER. Does that mean we shouldn't look up and learn? Of course not! We would miss out on so much. That is kind of like God. Even though God is BIGGER than we could ever possibly know, He still wants a relationship with us.
In Joshua 10, He made the SUN STAND STILL for almost a full day. Why? Because Joshua prayed and God heard his prayers. You might think this is impossible! That's too big for God! No matter how big something is, GOD is BIGGER. He is the Creator of the Sun, so of course He could make it stand still. God hears our prayers, too. No matter what is going on in your life, GOD IS BIGGER.
Your homework this week;)... go outside and look at the night sky. See the vast creation and know that many of the stars that you see- are actually suns in other galaxies! Wow! Impossile, right?! WRONG! God our CREATOR is bigger than the vastness of space!! There is so much more to what is truly going on in life than we choose to see. Look up! Know He hears your prayers and He loves you. Trust Him!
