Pacifiers

(1John 2:15) Do not love the world or the things in the world.

Some babies have the cutest pacifiers. It’s so cute when a baby has a pacifier. But as that child nears and surpasses two years old it becomes a problem. Mama has to take the pacifier. What happens is, the big baby cries and cries and cries, and finally mama goes against her will and gives that child the pacifier so he/she can go to sleep finally.

God be trying to take sin from us…He knows we should be done with this sin by now but we throw fits when we can get it. It’s just a “spiritual pacifier.”

Loving-kindness

(Psalm 63:3) Your loving-kindness is better than life itself.

Early in life I discovered that life doesn’t make sense. Losing loved ones early in life, being in danger, getting injured, numerous failed relationships…all taught me that life just doesn’t make sense. I became very disappointed and vexed.

But I must admit, this disappointment has helped me to love Jesus all the more. Life made no sense. A child should lose his grandmother – that doesn’t make sense. “Where is my dad?” That doesn’t make sense. I keep having headaches while other kids are playing – that doesn’t make sense!

I’m so glad that His loving-kindness is better than life itself.

Gym

“Let perseverance have her perfect work.” (James 1:4)

I walked around the gym doing nothing. Mainly because my right shoulder had been previously injured in the past. Any upper-body work I do, I use light weight and do plenty of reps to ensure I don’t reinjure my shoulder. So, much of my working out involves rehabbing that shoulder.

In our walk with God, we have some areas that are fragile. Weak. Broken. But God knows how to do rehab and therapy. But do know that we serve a God who, one of these days, will add another plate.

Just like weight lifters add another plate, God will add another plate on top of what you are already struggling through. That’s part of being in the gym.

Come To The Water

pix202

(Ecclesiastes 2:10-11) Whatever my eyes desired I did not keep from them. I did not withhold my heart from any pleasure, for my heart rejoiced in all my labor; and this was my reward from all my labor. Then I looked on all the works that my hands had done and on the labor in which I had toiled; and indeed all was vanity and grasping for the wind. There was no profit under the sun.

Jesus is a river in the center of the desert. That’s because everything in life is unfulfilling and leaves you empty and THIRSTY for something more worthwhile. On top of this, life has the habit of continually rubbing you the wrong way in that you have no solutions but to run to the water.

Don’t fight it. Go! Run to the water…
