Promises About Perspective

The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.  Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.   1 Samuel 16:7

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!  "Who has known the mind of the Lord?  Or who has been his counselor?"  "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?"  For from him and through him and to him are all things.  To him be the glory forever!  Amen.  Romans 11:33-36

Where then does wisdom come from?  Where does understanding dwell?  It is hidden from the eyes of every living thing, concealed even from the birds of the air. ...God understands the way to it and he alone knows where it dwells.  Job 28:20-21,23

Looking For Laughter

Giggles in life usually come from little things.  If we train ourselves to see them and then giggle with them, we get a "perk."  Giggle potential is everywhere;  we just need to slow down long enough to see it.

Promises About Real Self-worth

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!  And that is what we are!  1 John 3:1

Promises About Remembering

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.  I will meditate on all of your works and consider all your mighty deeds.  Your ways, O God, are holy.  What god is so great as our God?  You are the God who performs miracles;  you display your power among the peoples.  Psalm 77:11-14

All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him, for dominion belongs to the Lord and he rules over the nations.  Psalm 22:27-28

On my bed I remember you, Lord; I think of you through the watches of the night. ...My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.  Psalm 63:6,8

Thursday, October 27, 2011

Remembering - Memories

Remembering is important to God.  He encourages us to make memories.  Scripture is replete with verses on remembering.  We're encouraged to remember days of old, the wonders of God, the Sabbath, God's deeds and our struggles, our Creator, our youth, and that life is short.  On and on the commands to remember to go.

If you've not yet begun to create memories, start now.  Load up your camera with film, fill that pen with ink, and capture the miracles and wonders that come your way. Surround yourself with whatever it takes to be reminded.  God is faithful.  Don't ever forget that.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.  Psalm 100:1

Satisfy us in the morning with the unfailing love, O Lord, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.  Psalm 90:14

Thursday, September 29, 2011

Laughter For The days Ahead

A laugh lifestyle is predicated upon our attitude toward the daily stuff of life.  When those tasks seem too dull to endure, figure out a way to make them fun; get creative and entertain yourself.  If the stuff of life for you right now is not dull and boring but instead painful and overwhelming, find something in the midst of the pain that makes you smile or giggle anyway.  There's always something somewhere... even if you have to just pretend to laugh until you really do!

You need that joy break, so take at least one every day.  Hey, how about twirling and flourishing in your kitchen, grocery store, or office?

Dear Father, you provide our safety, our security, our eternal hope.  Because of those loving assurances, enable us to see the joy, feel the joy, and even twirl with joy.  Thank you that you are our reason for joy each day.  Amen

Promises About Our Good Shepherd

Jesus said, "I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me -- just as the Father knows me and I know the Father --and I lay down my life for the sheep."  John 10:14-15

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.....
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.    Psalm 23

Thursday, September 15, 2011

I Shall Not Be In Want

Most of the time when I say grace before a meal I say with conviction, "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want!"  Not because its a short verse, which lets me feed my face sooner than saying a prayer, but because I really mean it.

"I shall not be in want."  Now, that reminds me that I desire certain things:  new draperies, new carpeting, new furniture.  These are luxuries not necessities, because I already have these things.  I just want different ones.  Know what I mean?  God promises to provide all our needs according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.  I know he will do that.  And he delights in often giving us what we want as well.

When I say, "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want, "it's more than just something to recite before eating.  It's an affirmation that the Good Shepherd is watching over all the affairs of my life and is making sure I'm taken care of.

Promises About Common Pots & Odd Ducks

God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.  But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.  2 Corinthians 4:6-7

In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble.  If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.  2 Timothy 2:20-21

O Lord, you are our Father.  We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.  Isaiah 64:8

Thursday, September 1, 2011

Common Pots & Odd Ducks

God does his extraordinary work through common, ordinary people.  Our society puts an inordinate emphasis upon external success and being number one.

That doesn't seem to matter a whit to God.  Jesus used ordinary flowers, trees, and birds to teach profound lessons about himself and about life.  He placed ordinary mud from the ground on the eyes of a blind man and restored his sight.  Jesus changed ordinary water into extraordinary wine.  He took a lunch of ordinary fish and bread and from them made an extraordinary lunch for five thousand hungry people.

God does the unusual so that we recognize his unmistakable hand.  I cannot take the credit for how things work out in my life.  I cannot brag about my fine insights, good judgment, or special ability.  God makes sure that his accomplishments are performed by him; it is his insight, his good judgment, and his ability that brings extraordinary results out of ordinary circumstances.

Promises About God's Grace & Joy

In Christ we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace.  Ephesians 1:7

May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation always say, "Let God be exalted!"  Psalm 70:4

The ransomed of the Lord will return.  They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads.  Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.  Isaiah 51:11

Thursday, August 18, 2011

God's Grace Brings Joy

The wonderful and outrageous thing about grace is that you get to be Mary or Martha, and if you really understand grace, both bring joy.  That was one of the hardest lessons for me to learn.  I thought that what I did for Godand others made me loved, but I was really fed up with it.  Now I understand that I am loved by God anyway, even if  I do stay under the bed for a couple of months.  So I enjoy most of my busy days, and when I get a day like today I make a cup of tea, sit down with Christian, and watch the Barney movie for the nine hundredth time.

You see, when you really "get it," really understand that God's grace is enough and will always be there, then you can spin plates, juggle melons, and sing the "Hallelujah Chorus" -- all four parts, all at the same time.  And you'll be sure that God's grace is sufficient even if a few of those melons splatter on the ground!

Promises About God's Life-changing Love

God is love.  Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.   1 John 4:16

Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always happens, always perseveres.  Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8

We, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.  2 Corinthians 3:18

Thursday, August 4, 2011

God's Love Is Life-Changing

God's love is a gift that can make you forget yourself at times.  The Scottish writer George MacDonald said, "It is the heart that is not yet sure of its God that is afraid to laugh in his presence."

So often with old people and children all sense of what would be appropriate is swallowed up in what feels right.  That's refreshing.  We waste too many years between childhood and our older years measuring our behavior on a scale we think we see in someone else's eyes.

God loves us as we are right now!  That's one of the things I'm most grateful for.  I love the freedom to be myself in God.  I pray that a year from now, five years from now, I will be a godlier woman, but I know God won't love me any more than he does right this minute.

Promises About The Touch of God's Love

I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.    Ephesians 3:17-19

This is love:  not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
1 John 4:10

Because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved.  And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.  Ephesians 2:4-7

God's Love

Do you enjoy hearing tender words from your spouse, children, family, and friends?  Of course you do.  However, to know that we are loved by an omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient Lord is the grandest feeling of acceptance anyone can have.  When other people fail to express their love to us, we can always depend on Jesus.

Imagine Jesus himself saying to you:

"Child of mine, I love you with an everlasting love.  I love you with unconditional love.  I love you because I want to!  I love you when others think you are unlovable.  I love you when you have sinned and come short of my glory.  I love you in the good times and in the bad."

omnipotent = He is all powerful
omnipresent = He is everywhere

The Touch of God's Love

God loved the world so tenderly
His only Son he gave,
That all who on His Name believe
Its wondrous power will save.

For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son,
That whosoever believeth in Him
Should not perish, should not perish;
That whosoever believeth in Him
Should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Oh, love that only God can feel,
And only He can show!
Its height and depth,
Its length and breadth
Nor heav'n nor earth can know!

For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son,
That whosoever believeth in Him
Should not perish, should not perish;
That whosoever believeth in Him
Should not perish, but have everlasting life.

O Savior, melt these hearts of ours,
And teach us to believe
That whosoever comes to Thee
Shall endless life receive.

Experiencing God's Love

Experiencing God's love and loving him in return is not just about living a good life.  It's not just about duty or obedience.  It's about loving with abandon.  It's knowing he's still there when everyone else has left.

Monday, May 16, 2011

Promises About God's Outrageous Love

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  John 3:16

The Lord said, "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness."  Jeremiah 31:3

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.  Deuteronomy 7:9

God demonstrates his own love for us in this:  While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Romans 5:8

Monday, May 9, 2011

God's Outrageous Love

There is nothing average about the God we know, the Father we long to serve.  He's unconventional and exorbitant.  He's extravagant in his giving.  He's unrestrained in his love for us.  In fact, God is extraordinary in every way.  He's outrageous!  If you and I were to catch even a glimpse of who he is, our lives would never be the same.  And yet, he's shown us who he is.  His truth and glory are revealed in his Son, Jesus Christ.  And w see it every day in the universe he created, in the lives of others, and in our own experience.  We often miss it, but it's there.  We just forget to notice the joy he provides is outrageous because it is completely unencumbered by the circumstances we face.

Let's notice.  Let's pay careful attention.  Let's let our everyday lives be invaded and transformed by this loving, gracious, wonderful, perfectly outrageous God.

Promises About Your Uniqueness

God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.  Genesis 1:27

We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  Ephesians 2:10

I praise you, Lord, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  Psalm 139:14

The Lord says, "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine." 
Isaiah 43:1

Monday, April 25, 2011

God Made You - You!

     God made you an original; don't die a copy.   In Christ, you can be the best of what and who you want to BEE!
     According to aeronautical science, the bumblebee can't fly.  Its body is too heavy, and its wings are too shallow.  But the bumblebee doesn't know it can't fly.  So it flies around doing what God chose for it to do, pollinating plants.  It does so without considering its limitations.
     You, too, have talent, skill, aptitude, and ability that are you-niquely yours.  We can be the bestof what and who we want to BEE --and only God knows what our limitations are.
     You might appear to be different -- or even strange -- to some people.  But remember, God made you in his image ofr his glory.  Use your uniqueness to edify people and glorify God.  Capitalize on the abilities God has given you.  Don't expect other people to be like you or to always understand you.  They're busy being uniquely themselves.

Jesus said, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.  Matthew 7:7-8

The Lord said, "You will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you."  Jeremiah 29:12

Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear," says the Lord.  Isaiah 65:24

Monday, April 11, 2011

He's Always Listening

Nothing can keep you from being directly connected to God if you want to be.  It doesn't matter what time of day or night it is; who else is talking to him; or what the problem is.  When you need to make decisions and nobody on earth understands, call him up.  When your problems seem unbearable, call him up.  When you want to praise him and show appreciation for his wonderful work in your life, call him up.  God is always available.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.  Proverbs 16:3

Monday, March 28, 2011

The "Let Verses"

Let! That's one of the most powerful words in the English language.  It urges consent.    This word "Let" is used in the Bible repeatedly.  The "let verses" cover practically every mandate in the Christian life.

Here is a few:

1 John 4:7 - Let us love one another.

Hebrews 12:2 - Let us fix our eyes on Jesus.

Colossians 4:6 - Let your conversation be always full of grace.

Do a personal Bible study on this simple, wonderful, powerful word.  Look up the verse, meditate on it, and ask God to make it real in your life.

Jesus said, "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven."  Matthew 10:32

God will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  Psalm 91:4

Monday, March 14, 2011

Our Caring Heavenly Father

Matthew tells us, "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?" (Matthew 6:26). 

Our heavenly Father provides for the birds.  What a lovely thought; he, too, is a bird-watcher.  And to think his care and provision for us is even greater, for he is a people watcher, too.  How comforting.

Monday, March 7, 2011

Promises About Focusing on God

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praise worthy -- think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me -- put it into practice.  And the God of peace will be with you.  Philippians 4:8-9

I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts.  I will be their God, and they will be my people, " says the Lord.  Hebrews 8:10

over you will not slumber.
Psalm 121:3

Living With or Without Regret

Ever wish you could start over?  Probably all of us have longed for another chance in some area of our lives.  We wouldn't necessarily have done things differently, just more or perhaps less.

The truth is we can't go back, only forward into uncharted territory.  To sit in our sorrow would lead to misery.  Although regret that leads to change is a dear friend, regret that leads to shame is a treacherous enemy.

So how do we live without allowing regret to rob us of our joy?  How about this insight to prompt us on:  "Lean not on your own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5).

Sometimes, we are so certain we know something, we don't really.  Know what I mean?  There is no guarantee that if we had done a part of our lives differently things would end up any different.  We have to trust the God of the universe who directs the outcome of all things that he will do that which ultimately needs to be done (in spite of us, if necessary).

God Knows Us

We don't have to worry that God won't know us.  he has known us -each one of us- since he knit us together in our mothers' wombs (Psalm 139:13).

He knows us by name (Isaiah 43:1), and he'll never stumble over the pronunciation or forget who we are.  He wears our names on his hands (Isaiah 49:16).

And we can be assured that he knows more than just our names; he knows all about us (Psalm 139:3) - and loves us anyway!

He's Looking at You

She volunteered to sing at the local nursing home this past Sunday.  She wanted to bring a little joy to the residents who don't get out much.  Well, six people showed up.  Three ladies fell asleep before I started.  Another was off in a corner dancing to a tune that was different from the one I was singing, but the loudest one of all sat right up front, ust under my nose.  Her hearing aid was turned up too high, and it was giving off high-pitched whining noises.  Every time I began another song she cried out at the top of her lungs, "Oh,no, she's going to sing again!"

Do you ever feel as if no one seems to notice or appreciate you?  God sees our hearts, and that's all he cares about.  He doesn't miss a single moment of a life lived out for him.  If everyone in your audience has dozed off or danced off to another tune, you might want to check again.  There, in the corner, is God, watching and listening and appreciating you.

Promises About God's Gift's

The Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor;

those whose walk is blameless.
