God does the impossible

f5_jj_day10

“Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon” (Joshua 10:12). God not only heard Joshua’s prayer, He answered it, delaying the setting of the sun for a full day.

“Do not be afraid of them; I have given them into your hand” (Joshua 10:8)

What is your God-sized prayer? Will you believe with me today we have a God who can do the impossible?


The picture and the excepts above are from the daily devotional First 5.  I first wrote about first 5 as i was explaining the typical walk with Christ in a day.  If you are searching for daily inspiration or just want to read more about the wonder of our God, first5 is a solid place to start.  Have a great day and God Bless us all!!! – PJSLB

 

God Bless Our Troops…U.S. Soldiers Singing Praises

Our Troops Singing Praises.

I remember the excitement in my daughters (grade 4K) voice as she was telling me about a song they had performed while attending Vacation Bible School at Northside Christian Church in Macon, GA.  The song was called “Days of Elijah” by Robin Mark.  The song she learned was accompanied by simple choreography.  I can recall thanking God under my breath in that moment for showing himself to my daughter.  I also made a mental note of the song becuase I knew a day would come when that song would come back into our lives and put a smile on my daughters face as she gets older.

Four years later my daughter has gotten so big.  She has adjusted well to the move to Guam and is still seeking out our lord.  She is also beginning to learn about our US government and how the consitution is the law of the land.  I want my daughter to love this great country of ours and still honor our God.  I am motivated by this passage

“And Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they were amazed at Him.”  Mark 12:17

I was looking for something that ties in love for our country and love for our God.  After watching this Video, I am confident that i found the perfect video to show my daughter.  I can’t wait for her to watch this tomorrow.  Watch the video.  It will definitely lift your spirit.

GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY.

Why should I worry

As a Christian, why should I let life’s trivial problems get to me? I am a visitor to this place for my home is not here but in heaven. Why worry about something that the lord has control over?

Philippians 4:6-7
New International Version (NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Walking on Water

Starting this blog, I am remind of the story of Jesus Walking on Water. For those of you who are not familiar with this story you can find it Here.

This story relates to this blog in that Peter walks on water towards Jesus with good intentions. It is only when he is already in the water that he begins to “think twice” about his decision and he starts to sink.

I am starting this blog out of faith as well.  I have good intentions.  I need to be aware that Jesus is out there in the “open water” reaching out his hand to us.

Let The Journey Begin.
