  • Our COVID19 Silver Lining

    03/23/2020 6:39:20 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | March 23, 2020 | Terry Paulson
    Hidden in the uncertainty and fears of the public and the social isolation demands encouraged by the government, it’s too easy to lose sight of blessings that have emerged. May the hope and positive perspective provided contribute to your mental health and a constructive, optimistic attitude worth spreading. Even a country as blessed and successful as America is still vulnerable in a way that can totally disrupt our comfortable world. But wakeup calls can be beneficial. They get us all off autopilot and force us to look at our own habits and needed changes to fight any crisis. A byproduct...

  • Understand Your Spiritual Resources

    01/04/2020 4:55:28 AM PST · by metmom · 7 replies ^ | 1993 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    “God...has blessed us with every spiritual blessing” (Eph. 1:3, emphasis added). As a Christian, you possess every spiritual resource you need to fulfill God’s will for your life. The story is told of a wealthy London businessman who searched many years for his runaway son. One afternoon he was preparing to board a train to London when he spotted a man in ragged, dirty clothing begging money from passengers along the station platform. His first impulse was to avoid the beggar but there was something strangely familiar about him. When the beggar approached and asked if he could spare a...
  • Blessing the God of Blessings

    01/03/2020 7:28:45 PM PST · by metmom · 4 replies ^ | 1993 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us” (Eph. 1:3). When we bless God, it is with words of praise; when He blesses us, it is with deeds of kindness. Paul's brief doxology identifies God the Father as the ultimate recipient and source of blessing—the One to whom blessing is ascribed and the One who bestows blessings on those who love Him. “Blessed” translates the Greek word eulogeō, from which we get eulogy. To bless or eulogize God is to praise Him for His mighty works and holy character. That should be the...

    This Christmas has been extraordinarily difficult for people that have lost... valuable items, money, friends, homes, cars, loved ones, beloved pets... If you have lost something recently please let us know. You don't have to say what it is if you don't want to but we will all be praying for your recovery and healing from your loss no matter how big or small. The most important thing is that we do not lose hope especially as we contemplate the joy of Christmas and our Lord's promise of Salvation.

    I can hit the golf ball any way I can and laugh if it goes in the lake. That's the breaks. I'm just happy I can still hit that golf ball. As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend. I have seen too many dear friends leave this world, too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging. Whose business is it, if I choose to read, or play, on the computer, until 4 AM, or sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those wonderful...

    Adam was hanging around the garden of Eden feeling very lonely So, God asked him, "What's wrong with you?" Adam said he didn't have anyone to talk to. God said that He was going to make Adam a companion and that it would be a woman. He said, "This pretty lady will gather food for you, she will cook for you, and when you discover clothing, she will wash it for you. "She will always agree with every decision you make and she will not nag you, and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've...

    Before heading to West Virginia on Saturday for a political rally, President Trump expressed confidence in Kavanaugh. "I would expect it's going to turn out very well for the judge," he said. "There's never been anybody that's been looked at like Judge Kavanaugh." Trump said he had no backup plan concerning his nomination, and didn't need one.

    A brook in Autumn, I learned to swim and loved playing in. After double, right and left eye surgery to remove old cataract lenses, and replace with ocular standard lenses, I see very well and recommend to others, not to fear this kind of surgery. I sing two verses of the hymn, There is a Fountain Filled with Blood, accompanied with, lyrics, piano music and a scenic Autumn brook.

    A Prayer for the Internet from the 1946 Roman Ritual? Sure, and It’s Wonderful! Msgr. Charles Pope • November 28, 2016 • The old Roman Ritual (published in 1946) is a magnificent collection of blessings and prayers. It has some of the most amazing little blessings of things it would never occur to you to find in such a collection. Along with the blessings of expected objects (e.g., statues, religious medals) are blessings, often elaborately laid out, for things such as seismographs, typewriters, printing presses, fishing boats, fire engines, stables, medicine, wells, bridges, archives, lime kilns, automobiles, mountain-climbing equipment,...

    When I look at the unfathomable vastness of the universe, the intricate workings of the solar system, the constant, predictable journey of the moon around the earth and the earth around the sun, it's incomprehensible to me that it just happened. It is inconceivable for me to believe that it was just a random occurrence, nothing more than the explosion of gases in space that luckily resulted in a nine planet solar system, with the third one from the center being the only known inhabited planet in existence. When I consider the process by which a child is conceived and...

    The wisdom comes from the Lord. He is the one, who gives people true wisdom. No matter how many books you read or how many universities you graduate from if your wisdom is not given from the Lord then you will just have education without wisdom. You will make wrong decisions for your life. How To Receive Wisdom From The LordLook for it as for silver. The second chapter of the book of Proverb calls us to call out for insight, cry aloud for understanding and look for it as for silver. Change Your View on WisdomWisdom is not something...

    I just wanted to say Hi to all and wish you blessings in 2016. I miss being here. Things have been a bit upside-down in my life, including the loss of over half a dozen family members, and having a close friend, who is like family to me, become very ill with little time left. I've been spending precious little time in prayer, including my prayer group, but please know I haven't forgotten you or your intentions when I do- even if I don't know specifically what they are, I know that G-d in His Infinite Wisdom, does. Please pray...

Count your blessings instead of your crosses. Count your gains instead of your losses. Count your joys instead of your woes. Count your friends instead of your foes. Count your smiles instead of your tears. Count your courage instead of your fears. Count your full years instead of your lean. Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

    Editor's note: this piece was coauthored by Hagelin's daughter, Kristin Carey.God “gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike” (Matthew 5:45). Every one of us has been blessed by God, but so few of us recognize His hand on our lives. And those of us who do recognize His providence so rarely take the time to express our gratitude. All too often our thanks is missing. The Bible tells the story of a time when Jesus healed ten men from leprosy at a time. “One of them,...
