New New New
There were a number of new items I had to embrace in 2018. However, our new items will soon be scratched, broken down and will become obsolete. However, our new life in Christ will never become obsolete. It will last throughout eternity. Each day can be a new and exciting walk with our Lord. “Being Born Again is not becoming religious but getting a new personal relationship with a living God.”
Those Darn Socks
In my Christmas stocking, I got “Those Darn Touch Socks”. They are made out of merino wool, with uncompromised comfort, durability and fit. They can be worn for days with no odor. Even if I wear a hole in them, I will never have to buy another pair of socks because they are unconditionally guaranteed for life. This reminds me of something else that is also unconditionally guaranteed but for eternity. “.. that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 “Today, order your socks and accept Jesus’ promise. In both cases, you will be glad you did.”
"Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future." Not too far from my home is The National Watch & Clock Museum. It opened in 1977 with 1,000 items. It now has over 12,000 items Are you spending your time on activities that are meaningless when your time runs out? "Make the most of your limited time on earth because it will affect your limitless time in heaven."
A Broken Heart
The Great Physician can heal your heart without surgery, cost, recovery, insurance or preapprovals. This Valentine season seek the Lord with all of your heart (emotions), soul (devotion) and mind (will). Also, look for those who may have a broken heart. Show them that you care. “As you mindfully allow Jesus to control your heart, He will feed you with soul food.”
Communications is a vital part of any relationship whether it be work, community, marriage, friends or family. But most only talk to God when there is an issue, need or in church. Just talk to God as you talk to your best friend. The only person that can stop you from praying is you. “Pray means Praise, Repent, Ask, Yield.”
