What Time Is It?

Do you remember when you first learned how to tell the time? You learned the numbers first and then the order they go in. You then learned that a.m. is day and p.m. is night. You learned next how to look at the numbers together and know how much time is left in an hour or even the day.

But what about before that? My child is that way. He just knows night and day for now and wants to get the most out of every day. It was a good day for him if he got to do whatever he could in a day no matter the hour. Oh the simplicity of such a view of time.

Why can't we learn to think that way again? We after all are like children to God. He is over all time and our time is surely limited. So, what time is it for you? Don't let your life be totally dictated by the hour on the clock or the tasks of the day, but enjoy your life and learn to count your days with wisdom. Your days that are given are a blessing from God. Let's consider what it is time for us to do that really matters the most. God bless you as you do.We hope to see you on Sunday. Love and blessings, Rob



Answer the Call

Have you ever missed an important phone call? What made that call any different from others you ignore? What makes us ignore some calls and value another? It's very clearly who is calling us that makes it important! God is still making calls. He's calling you, and He's calling me. He calls more than once too. He is patient in his calling, and God will even leave a message. His message is clear. I'm calling you, and I await your answer. What will be your answer to the calling of God?



Call It What It Is

Let's get to the point. Let's be honest. Let's call it what it is. Have you ever been in a conversation like that? The opposite is to act as if it is not what it is or to deny or call it something else. This presents a problem with honesty. This causes whatever it is to not be properly addressed  or dealt with. We live in a very subjective, opinion led society today where the search for truth is still happening, but the search is often abandoned for some other reason. 
We have a battle with the unseen, the unheard, the unknown, the unproven, and the unaware. Those that are unaware call it whatever they see, but do they really see? The unheard leaves us confused wondering if it is something else. The unknown leaves us either scared or searching for answer to whatever it is. The unproven leaves us asking how long will it last? Is it enough for me?
Jesus taught "by their fruit you may see or know," and "believe in me based upon the evidence that you have seen or heard." Jesus called it sin, evil, and Satan. Jesus said that "I am the way, the truth, and the life," or I am it in other words. Are you calling it what it is? You cannot save yourselves from whatever it is in your life. People will also let you down with whatever it is. Turn your uncertainties over to God in these uncertain times. Call it what it is as you call upon the name of Jesus Christ!

Who Do You Talk To?

 
When was the last time you talked to the president or even the governor? Most of us would say never. What would you say if you had the opportunity? What would you talk about? What would  you request? Would it be awkward? Would  it be an experience you’d never forget? What about talking to God? We can do that and we often forget. God actually wants to hear from you. His office is open. His availability is always. Approach God with the assurance that a prayer offered in faith will certainly be  heard and answered. He’s waiting, so go ahead and give God a call.

 



Be Transformed

When’s the last time you broke something? Do you remember when that was? Do you remember what it was? Maybe you broke it accidentally or even on purpose? Things get broken. Some of those things carry more value than others. Some things we break can even be priceless or irreplaceable. So, what can we do about what’s broken in our lives? Maybe you are broken by your own doing? Maybe someone has brought some brokenness in your life? In these times, the pieces have to be put back together much like a puzzle. It may happen soon or it may take several years. Let God help you restore what has been broken. He truly knows the cost and Jesus has already paid the price.


I Messed Up

Sometimes in life we mess up. Are you a messy person? Were you a mess maker as a child? Maybe you are a messy adult? We’ve got messed up rooms, messed up cars, messed up bank accounts, and on on on it goes, if we’re honest. Life gets messy. A lot of these messes are our own doing. Some of them are less than others, but some of our messes may take a long time to fix. Some of our messes not only hurt us but other people. So, what’s the solution? What’s the magic cleaner? Turn your messes over to God. Receive that cleansing, and then go and do what you can to clean up your messes.


Summer Break?


146803241924669Summer is sure in full swing. I wonder if you have taken any time to slow down and enjoy the blessings of this season? Maybe you have been on vacation, at the pool, in the garden, on the ball fields, or simply on the porch sitting which is one of my favorites. But what about summer with the church? Have you taken a vacation from the Lord and the church? If so, just know that you are always welcome back at any season of your life. Our Lord and Savior never takes a vacation and is the God of all seasons.
