Grace On Top Of Grace

Gotta take a moment today to just give thanks for all of the blessings in my life. Didn’t deserve any of them. Got ’em anyway. Way cool.
 

“Lord, how You’ve loved me, I don’t deserve…grace on top of grace. More than I’ve asked for, more than I’m worth…grace on top of grace.”

Teen who gave shoes to homeless man wanted to be ‘blessing for somebody else’

“My life was not the best, but at the end, I’m trying to make it the best.”

Right on. Kudos to you, Phil Powell, on learning from your experiences and putting other people first.

Great stuff, check it out!

Friends

Friends

Just taking a few moments this morning to recognize the blessing that friends are in our lives.

My wife (who happens to be my best friend) and I have been fortunate enough to spend a lot of time with friends these past few weeks. An annual gathering of folks I’ve known since the late 90s, a weekend visit by a couple we know from church, another weekend visit by my wife’s friends from many years ago, playing tennis with some good folks I know, stopping in at a friend’s going away party and catching up with other friends in that group, folks who have stopped in along with some of our kids’ friends.

Friends are just a real blessing, aren’t they? Every conversation is unique yet every one is the same, in that, it is a potential memory being made. It’s just nice to be able to be yourself and enjoy the company of others at the same time. Hooray for friends! Thanks, God.

Have a great day.

Choices: Blessings with Consequences

“We’ve been blessed with the freedom to choose. But, your choices have consequences – for you and also for others. Choices can affect you for a lifetime. A lot of times we don’t realize just how widespread the impact our choices can (and do) have. Put God first when you make your choices!”
-Brandon Dudley

From the beginning of time, this has been true. God has blessed us with the ability and freedom to make choices (Genesis 2:16-17) but those choices have resulted in some very significant consequences (Genesis 3) as well.

Choices

So, just as Mr. Dudley said…put God first when you make your choices. The results will be much better for you when you do. 🙂

Have a great day.

Giving It All

We’re giving it all away, away. We’re giving it all to go Your way!

Our youth group worship band played this to kick off the night and a message on giving that I was privileged to deliver to the kids this week. Will work on posting the full message here soon, but for now, this great song to help get you in the giving spirit today.

You can give, no matter where you are in life right now – and you don’t need a dime to do it! God will bless you when you give, whether it’s financially or through acts of kindness…He sees your heart.

So, I encourage you to find a way to give today. You never know who you might bless in the process, and the blessing you may receive from it as well.

Have a great day!
