Merry Christmas

Reach Out!

So often I have joined groups singing, believing and doing;

🎼”Reach out and touch the Lord 
As He goes by 
You will find He’s not too busy 
to hear your heart’s cry. ♥️
He’s passing by this moment 
Your needs He will supply 
Reach out and touch the Lord as He goes by.

Vs 4
If your heart is sad and lonely, 
There’s no peace anywhere 
There’s no one left to comfort 
No one left who seems to care 
Oh just cast your cares on Jesus 
On His strong arms just rely 
Just reach out and touch the Lord as He goes by“…

As we pause to celebrate the greatest of miracles, the Virgin Birth, the Birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth…are we acting out of divinity by being His answer to those that sing this hymn in prayer and expect results?

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you...”It is there for each and every one of us” (Teresa of Ávila).

“Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven...”

Merry Christmas as you show and share Christ to all. Just as Elijah had to strain his ears to hear the still small voice of God, let us to do likewise as we Reach Out!

My Thanks-KINDNESS

Happy Thanksgiving! What are you extremely thankful for this Thanksgiving, 2018?

My list is very lengthy as I imagine yours is as well. I decided to break my ‘Thanks’ down into an action, kindness.

2018 has been an abundance of goodness for me and my family and friends.

I’m pausing in my action wrap to focus on ‘kindness.’(Dictionary “kind behavior: I will never forget your kindness.”) One of my focal points in my Spiritual journey has been found in 2 Peter 1:7 KJV. “And,…add to godliness brotherly kindness; and add to brotherly kindness charity.”

This action, kindness, is conveyed throughout the Word of God. As I focus on godliness I must use my thoughts to add kindness before I leap into charity.

Therefore, in giving thanks in 2018, I am thankful for those who speak truth. I am thankful for those who find no comfort (including me) in using the mind to darken my vision by trying to circumvent truth with Words that are given to deceive. Pride and Arrogrance are twins from the heart that finds their way to the tongue so often.

This Thanksgiving I give Thanks for those that care enough not to rattle off sentences set to deceive. Kindness! Read about kindness in the Book of Life, God’s Word, Bible, as it spreads it’s wings like a Dove through the pages and births it’s young in hearts of gold! I give Thanks!

First They Came

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum quotes the following text…

First they came …” is a poem written by the German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
