A Choice - 4/15/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  We all have a choice to make.  Free will is exactly that...the right to choose.  With each choice we make, we reap the consequences of that it good or bad.  We are responsible in part for what our lives look like.  We have a say in how we mold our lives because of the gift of free will that God has given us all.

Finding Faith – 4/9/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Do you feel like you lack faith?  What is faith?  How do you get faith?  You can't find it on eBay or Craigslist and I have looked for it at the Christian book store and they are not selling it.  I have even been watching all the TV ads and so far, there no "faith pill" or buy one set of faith and get a second set free for only seven easy payments of $9.99.  So how exactly do we get this faith stuff anyway?

Seeking and Finding – 3/23/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  What are you seeking in this life?  What are you finding?  If you don't like what you see when you check out the view, then start looking for something else that you would rather find.

In my experience in life so far, I have found that I usually find what I look for.  If I look for the bad, I will surely easily find it.  And if I look for the good, it is all around me.  Both are there and always have been all the time.  It is a matter of what I choose to seek...what I look for. 

Inside Stuff – 3/20/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  It is not what we see on the outside that matters.  It is who we are on the inside and what we are made of that contain our true character, integrity and quality…who we really are.

Looks may fade and wrinkles appear.  Hair may recede and gray.  Waist lines may expand and strength diminish.  Vision may dim and hearing fade but who we are underneath it all…that soul under everything we hide behind…remains the same.

Old Ways…New Ways – 3/10/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Some new ways are better than my old ways.  The way I have always done things may not always be the best way and I must to be ready and willing to change and grow if I find something that is truly better.  I need to be willing to break out of a mold because often, it is God that is directing the mold breaking session.

Trust in the Lord - 3/5/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Questions to consider today.  How is your life going?  Where is your direction coming from?  In what or whom do you really trust in?  Is your Heavenly Father the first or the last one that you run to in good and bad times?  Just thoughts on my mind this morning and something to think about today.

Here is some great advice from Proverbs.

Ups and Downs and All Arounds - 2/24/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Whew…what can you say about these pictures?  Life sure has its ups and downs and even some sharp turns and the occasional drop off.

Hold Your Ground – 2/9/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  When hard times and trials come, hang in there.  The one that comes to kill, steal and destroy would not be messing with you if you had not made great progress worthy of trying to mess up.  And God would not ALLOW him to mess with you if you were not able to face it.  Your Savior…the One in you…is greater than anything this world can throw at you.  Don't give up...don't give in and don't give back any ground you have won back in your life.  Learn where you are strong and where you are weak in this tough time.  And through it all, never forget that your God,

The Door of Our Heart – 2/3/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Many things and people knock on the door of our heart throughout our lives.  There is One knocking however, that has been there consistently your whole life.  The One who loves you the most and knows you the best will never force His way in.  He is knocking and waiting for the moment that you choose to open the door of your heart and invite Him inside.  And when you do will never be the same.  Once you do begins.  Once you do this…you have finally found what you have always been searching for.

NOTHING - 1/19/2015

SHORT THOUGHTS:  Fantastic words of truth for today and every day.  Nothing can separate us from the love that God has for us...NOTHING!  We might get mad at God, distance ourselves from Him and/or quit loving Him but His love for us never never fails.  Never forget that!

And with that bit of great news...have a great week!!!
