release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do
to bring it back. You can’t 'should’ve' done something.
You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that
attachment. Today is a new day!"
indeed, a very glorious creation. We have been given the ability
to think and to make choices. More than that, we "must"
think, plan, and make choices. But we are just that, His
creation. When we were created, God intended for us to love
Him, follow His will, and trust in Him "above all else".
He loves us still, and will continue to direct and guide us,
if we "want" Him to. Even if we choose not to follow
Him, make no mistake, He will, like in times past, allow
events to occur that will show us our need for Him and His will
for us. That is what an “all knowing”, loving Father would
do. Now let's put things into their proper perspective.
What does this picture above represent? - perhaps one small brain
cell in your vast intellect... your ability to plan, to
understand, to lead, to judge.
No, it represents a huge magnification of the earth in one small
part of the created universe.
How BIG is "your"
in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own
understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make
your paths straight."
you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or
healthy... all those things matter less than what your heart
contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a
warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that
contains the lamp, but you are the light inside."
be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative
only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its
beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little
more poetry to it, a little more dance to it."
every man abide in the calling wherein he is called and his work
will be as sacred as the work of the ministry. It is not what a
man does that determines whether his work is sacred or
secular, it is why he does it."
us practice the fine art of making every work a priestly
ministration. Let us believe that God is in all our simple
deeds and learn to find Him there."
