Iran, Missles, The Middle East, Our World

It seems that Iran has tested its longest range missiles today. News reports say that Iran warned that they can reach any place that threatens thier country to including Israel, parts of Europe and some U.S. military bases in the Mideast. It seems that Iran continues to press forward with it's missles, and nuclear desires.
I'm starting to wonder how much longer Israel, the United States and the rest of the world are going to put up with this. I sure hope that we all don't awaken one morning to news reports that somethings gone terribly wrong. However ....

Making The Most In Difficult Seasons

Since my wife was released from the hospital back in December of 2008, life has changed. She's in recovery from a virus that attacked her heart muscle and almost took her life. The end result was being diagnosed with heart failure as the damage to her heart left her heart only pumping at 20%. Since then the numbers have improved and by June of 2009 her heart was pumping at 33%. We will know more after her next doctors visit when further tests will be performed.
As the months have passed, as a family we have gone through many changes. The 1st three months after her illness were very difficult. By June of this year things had improved somewhat and she seems to be getting better and better all the time. Still with that said, life and the things we do have changed as my wife can tire very easily and have difficulties breathing.
Yet every Saturday night as a family we attend Saturday evening services and go out to eat. Then on Sunday we again attend services and afterwords go out to lunch. We look forward to our weekend, church and going out to eat. We've also learned to be thankful for our weekends.
It's not how much you do, where you go, or how exciting it is. It's the simplicity of spending time together as a family.

Learning From Our Children, While Teaching Them About Life

My daughter will be turning 5 years old this December. Oh how fast she has grown. It seems like just yesterday she was learning to walk and here we are already. She's such a blessing from God, so full of life, has way too much energy and just a barrel of fun to be around. Truly, I have been blessed beyond measure.

Over these last almost five years I have watched her grow and mature in ways that leave me in awe. She's bright, creative, and loves to explore. Of course we have those occasional moments as do all parents. However that's when I must be a father in all situations. That's when I must apply love in even greater measures. Simply through love to help her understand rights and wrongs and mature with character. Sometimes, in the end she teaches me things, like how to love life from a child like perspective. She has this thing that when I get too serious, she makes me laugh. Too funny!
It is good to learn from our children while teaching them about life.

A World Of Light And Darkness

Ouch! Life is not always filled with joy. Sometimes life is filled with pain, loss and very difficult times. Just look around our world, or the community that you live in. Just watch the evening news or listen to the local radio station. Life can just seem hard and unfair at times.
What a world we live in. There is beauty and there is heartache. There is light and there is darkness. There is love and there is hatred. For everything pure and lovely, there is almost a complete opposite. Yet this is our world.
Together, we can all make a difference, one day, and one life at a time.

Building The House On Sure Foundation

Jesus spoke of the man who built his house on solid foundation vs. the man that built his house on sand. One was built on rock solid foundation, while the other was not. Jesus went on to say that the house built on the solid foundation could withstand difficult times, that the winds could blew and the house would remain, but that the house built on sand would not stand and great would be the fall of it. Just imagine the endless situations and circumstances that this application could apply to.
Sometimes it's possible to start out on solid foundation and slowly be moved to unstable foundation. One way for this to happen is through compromise. We all occasionally compromise, however if we continue to walk in compromise it can cause a shift and that shift can lead to unstable grounds.
When this happens, we must examine situations, ourselves, and the path that we have taken. For it's easy to get off course in today's world.
There are blessings found in the straight and narrow.

Guard Your Heart, Mind & Ears

As Christian's and especially babes in Christ. We must always be careful of what we are chewing on. If it doesn't line up with God's Word, we might just find that we are chewing on meat that is not from God. That's why it's so important to read and study God's Word. Otherwise we might find ourselves receiving another gospel, and following the teachings of men that are not scriptural.
There are blessings in reading, studying and understanding God's Word.

Fruitless Seeds Spoken

Words are powerful and especially when deep rooted bitterness is behind them. Bitterness is exactly that, bitterness. When words are fueled by bitterness they have a bitter affect upon others and especially those close to us. They are hurtful, spoken with hatreds, designed to be destructive and the end result of such words are very damaging.
For out of the mouth comes forth the abundance of the heart and if a heart is filled with bitterness, that heart speaks forth destruction. Destruction is not a fruit of the spirit. We should all examine our words and in doing so, see what's in our heart.

The Dangers Of Bitterness

Bitterness is like a cancer. It can rule over our lives and bring great seasons of loss. Bitterness leads to hatred and hatred is a form of murder. Bitterness starts burning like a small flame, however if it's not dealt with, it becomes deeply rooted in our heart and soul and burns like a mighty raging fire. that fire not only brings destruction and misery to our lives, but also the lives of others.
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

The Flood That Can Bring Destruction

We all occasionally encounter anger. Anger is one of the ways we express many different emotions. That is to say that under the anger can be a variety of feelings and emotions. Yet when anger becomes rage and enters into those uncontrollable stages, that anger is dangerous and can bring destruction to all that experience it. Un controllable anger can destroy a home, a family, a marriage and even close friendships. It is like a flood that overtakes people and their lives.
Here are some proverbs on anger: Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife. He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated. Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:

When Faith Becomes Thin

There are times when our faith comes under attack. Times when we find discouragement overtaking us. No one can escape those occasional times that test everything within us. Hopefully all the seeds that have been sown into our life have fallen on good ground, because it is those seeds that help us to endure difficult times. Let me encourage you to hold fast your faith. To recall and bring to memory all the ways that God has increased your faith in times past. Within such, you will begin to again focus on the very things that have seen you through the seasons of the past.
Blessings are found when we remember all that God has done for us.

Spiritual Snakes

Have you ever seen a swarm of snakes. Maybe as a child out exploring or in a movie on television. Most people dislike snakes and the thought of having 100's of snakes around them could send their blood pressure through the sky. Now picture the unseen, the spiritual realm and just imagine 100's of spiritual snakes running around your home creating problems with the ability to inflict frustrations, irritations, anger, divisions, rage, emotional, mental and physical problems. Just imagine if the very forces of darkness and spiritual wickedness were unleashed against you and your family. What would be you defense against these unseen spiritual forces?
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The Lord's prayer:
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Read Matthew 6:9 -13

The Words Of Peter The Apostle

But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out. Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.
Imagine those days.

Shouldn't Things Be Simple

Every church that I have ever attended had a prayer ministry. Prayer is one of the heart beats of church. Prayer is important, and Jesus said "My House shall be called a house of prayer". There are many scriptures in the Bible that speak of prayer from the book of Genesis to the book of Revelations. There are many accounts of Christ praying, the Apostles praying, and also many accounts within the old testament about prayer.
Prayer in many ways is the lifeline of our communication with God. Through prayer we communicate with God, make our requests known to Him, enter into His presence and stand the gap as watchmen for others. It is good to pray for others. In fact, it is a humble privilege to pray for others.
In the book of Acts prayer and the laying on of hands are mentioned in various sections of scripture. In many church's today prayer and the laying on of hands is actively pursued and the ministry of the Holy Spirit flows freely.
Actually God made prayer very simple. It doesn't take some spiritual giant to pray for people. It just takes a willing vessel to step out in faith and allow the Holy Spirit to be the Holy Spirit. It's when fear, lack of faith, a religious spirit, the precepts of men and having a good church service show gets in the way and hinders the Holy Spirit, that prayer ministries become inaffective. That well scripted situations.
It amazes me how we sometimes turn the Kingdom of God into this well micro managed process as if we could add something to it. It amazes me how we sometimes take the simplest of things and make them difficult and within that process diminish the power of such. 

I somehow don't think Jesus had that in mind.

Sometimes We Need To Return To The Basics

Many times as the seasons go by, we can get off course. We soon forget the very reasons, plans and purposes that were the seeds of something good and take on new grounds that we were never called to pioneer. I call that appetites gone wild and it can happen to the best of us. Other times our appetite and desires just out do us and draw us into other areas that we are not called to venture into or not yet strong enough to enter into.
I think this happens with church's too many times. They start off small very much like walking on a straight and narrow sidewalk only to eventually walk on a very broad path seeking growth. Well, growth is good, however if you grow to soon, too fast and don't put things into perspective along the way, that growth can bury you. I've often wondered in the scriptures where Jesus said "If a man have a hundred sheep", how that might apply to a Church or congregation of thousands. Why didn't Jesus say "If a man have 1,000 sheep or 2,000 sheep?".
My point being. Sometimes in the process and desire of growth the members can suffer. Sometimes in the process and desire for growth it's easy to neglect the very members that helped plant the whole situation and they start leaving. Personally, I'd rather have a one faithful member of 10 years, than flocks of new ones that just come and go. Besides what are the blessings when the sheep start scattering.
I love attending church, corporate worship and all the wonderful expressions that blossom at church. Yet I have never forgotten the gatherings that many of us attended in a home each and every Monday night. You see, those were very special times.
Blessings, in Christ

Church Membership

I'm sure that you've heard that term many times. Church membership. Sometimes I think that church membership becomes almost more important than being a member of the body of Christ. You might say, how so, as they are the same. Consider this. Church's have many aspects beyond members. There are rents, mortgages, building overheads, utility bills, insurance, payrolls and many other financial responsibilities that make up a church. Many times these responsibilities become almost overwhelming. Many times these financial responsibilities dictate situations and circumstances. Many times these financial responsibilities become the reason and need for more members. The sad part is that when these very financial matters and responsibilities that also make up church become overwhelming they create compromise and can lead a congregation down a road and path that God never called them into. You see, the body of Christ was never meant to be a business, nor be held in bondage to financial problems. The church is not meant to function in debt and always facing financial problems.
For God is not a God of bondage and we are called to be good stewards.
Blessings, in Christ

The Wise Man That Had Ears To Hear

Just imagine if your house was not built on concrete, but rather sand. Things could become very unstable at any given time. A earthquake could occur, or a winter storm. There could be a flood, or even a mudslide. The results could be very bad. Just imagine all the potential possibilities for disaster if your house was built on sand. Now imagine your life being built on sand.
Here are the words of Jesus on the matter. Life changing words that are over 2,000 years old, yet eternal.
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
They key is reading, knowing and understanding the sayings of Jesus.

Blessings, in Christ and His Words.

The Spirit Of The Lord

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Make That Call, Send That Letter

Is there someone that you've lost contact with? Maybe a old high school friend, maybe a old co worker, maybe a relative or close close family member? We all get busy and the freeway of life just seems to consume our time. Grandparents, uncles, aunts, best friends and people that we've spent time with just seem to fall onto the back burners of our life. Many times we are reminded of those people in thought. We make plans to contact them, but life's freeway once again consumes us. Maybe the Holy Spirit is putting someone on your heart right now. Take time and make that call. You just might put a smile on some one's face.
Blessings, in Christ.

We All, Can Make A Difference

Remember, we all can make a difference. In our homes, in our communities, with our families, on the job and at every corner. Each one of us has something to add to our world to make it a better place. Take time and make time to make a difference, a positive difference in the lives of others. Be a blessing to others and encourage them with your love and friendship.

The Cold Wet Upcoming Winter

They say that we are in for a cold wet winter this year. No doubt that we could use some rain here in California. It's been a hot summer and last year we didn't see a lot of rain fall. El Nino they say is the season to come with lots of rain. After all the recent fires over the last two years, that means potential mud slides and all sorts of problems. But then again, the weather man has been known to prophesy some false weather reports. Even so, be prepared for a wonderful wet rainy winter. Keep your eye's and prayers on the midwest and the east coast. Especially where the tornado's hit and the hurricanes come sliding in. Yes, times are changing, the seasons are changing and nature is calling out.

Remember, regardless of the seasons and what they bring. God's loves you and His love is eternal and never changing.
Blessings, in the love of God.
