Drawing of the Observable Universe

I have made several posts of photos taken by the Hubble Telescope, but this is a drawing of the whole universe that we have observed up until this point and its distance from earth. It is absolutely amazing to me what a BIG God we have. The world He created is so vast that we have not been able to see it all, even with high-powered telescopes.

Everything works perfectly and in order day after day. If He is capable of creating such astounding things, how can you ever doubt that He desires to meet your every need.

Give Him all the praise and glory and start this moment to give Him your problems.

In the End Everything is Between You and God

A Little Inspiration

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, It is between you and God;
It never was between you and them anyway.

Have you Lost your Sense of Wonder?

old-and-young1

old-and-young2

As we get older, it is easy to lose the sense of wonder about things you see everyday because you start to take them for granted. Children get excited about doing just the plain, ordinary things of everyday life and we love to see the world through their eyes.

It is also easy to put God in a box and expect Him to act only in certain ways that you might be accustomed to.  He has the whole universe at His disposal and can use any person or circumstance to answer your prayer or meet your need.

As God has been working in my life the last few years, He has led me down roads that I would never have thought about going on my own. I have been filled with much wonder and amazement at how He has brought things together. It is an awesome  feeling when you know you are in the center of God’s Will for your life.

Suddenly your own plans don’t seem as important as they once were. You feel as if you are part of something much greater than anything you could ever conjure up on your own. You also get so excited that God would choose you to do something for Him. After all, He could have chosen anyone, but He chose YOU. What an honor!

When you can reach this point, your childhood wonder will have returned about everyday life. It won’t be boring and mundane any more because God will definitely encourage you to trust and prove Him to see what He can and will do in your life.

Try it and see what happens!

More Humor – Pecans in the Cemetery

On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree
just inside the cemetery fence.

One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the
tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts.

“One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me,” said one boy.
Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence.

Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he
passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery.
He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, “One for
you, one for me. One for you, one for me.”

He just knew what it was. He jumped back on his bike and rode off.
Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along.

“Come here quick,” said the boy, “you won’t believe what I heard!
Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls.”

The man said, “Beat it kid, can’t you see it’s hard for me to walk.”

When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled slowly to the cemetery.

Standing by the fence they heard, “One for you, one for me. One
for you, one for me.”

The old man whispered, “Boy, you’ve been tellin’ me the truth.
Let’s see if we can see the Lord.”

Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still
unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought
iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a
glimpse of the Lord.

At last they heard, “One for you, one for me. That’s all. Now let’s go
get those nuts by the fence and we’ll be done.

They say the old man made it back to town a full 5 minutes ahead
of the kid on the bike.

The Power of Prayer

A missionary on furlough told this true story while visiting his home church in Michigan…

“While serving at a small field hospital in Africa, every two weeks I traveled by bicycle through the Jungle to a nearby city for supplies.

This was a journey of two days and required camping overnight at the halfway point. On one of these journeys, I arrived in the city where I planned to collect money from a bank, purchase medicine and supplies, and then begin my two-day journey back to the field hospital.

Upon arrival in the city, I observed two men fighting, one of whom had been seriously injured. I treated him for his injuries and at the same time talked to him about the Lord. I then traveled two days, camping overnight, and arrived home without incident.

Two weeks later I repeated my journey. Upon arriving in the city, I was approached by the young man I had treated. He told me that he had known I carried money and medicines.

He said, ‘Some friends and I followed you into the jungle, knowing you would camp overnight.

We planned to kill you and take your money and drugs. But just as we were about to move into your camp, we saw that you were surrounded by 26 armed guards.’

At this, I laughed and said that I was certainly all alone in that jungle campsite. The young man pressed the point, however, and said, ‘No sir, I was not the only person to see the guards. My five friends also saw them, and we all counted them.

It was because of those guards that we were afraid and left you alone.'”

What an awesome God of protection we have!

Each Moment is Your Life

happy-moment

You live your life one moment at a time, so you really can choose how you will spend each one. We generally look at time in chunks or blocks, not moments, so it is easy to forget the potential of every sixty seconds.

Give God control and you will be amazed at what He can accomplish through you.  A life lived for Him will truly bring you happiness as you live in each moment.
