Dwell

January 30th, 2015

One simple thought for today. No matter what is going on, you can it is the Lord that will bring you peace and lets you live in safety – the safety that you know he is in control!

Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?” Let the light of your face shine on us. Fill my heart with joy when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety. – Psalm 4:6-8

Walk in Wisdom

January 29th, 2015

I dunno, but this seems to say make sure you are taking care of your time and exchanging it for something of value.  What do you think?

15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.  Ephesians 5:15-18 (NKJV)

Near the cross

January 28th, 2015

I was listening to some Dailey and Vincent while I was working yesterday when Spotify queued up ‘Near The Cross’.   It had been years since I have heard or song this song, which is quite a shame.  I was surprised how quickly it reminded me of my grandparents and their  church in the hills of West Virginia.  These guys do it justice live and recorded.  And of course in a capella ( my fav!)

Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day,
With its shadows o’er me.

 

 

14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which[a] the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Galatians 6:14 NIV

 

Pushing Forward

This:

 

I am not sure why, but this statement struck a cord with me yesterday. I think it is because of two things. One reason is definitely tied to a study on spiritual disciplines that I recently started.  The other reason is related to the physical goals I have set up for myself this year. All of us must remember that regardless of the goals we establish for ourselves, the bigger deal is ensuring that the achieving of those goals makes us more like our Master! Think about that as you look around at what you are working each day to accomplish. Where is it really leading you?

7b rather, train yourself to be godly. 1 Timothy 4:7(NIV)

Should we start here?

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. (‭Psalm‬ ‭51‬:‭10‬ NIV)
