Having A Second Chance

Having a Second Chance

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--Ephesians 2:8

Have you ever done something really stupid and God gave you a second chance?  Vehicle accident, smoking, getting drunk, got in a lawsuit, did drugs, pornography  or saying something you regret.  Whatever it is, only Satan condemns.  You messed up.  He knows.  You prayed so don't beat yourself up.  God forgives so forgive yourself.

Today start the day by reading God's word.  Focus on friends who may have huge prayer needs.  Love people. Forgive people.  Be thankful. Enjoy life.  Love you spouse if married.  Write a real letter to someone to make their day.  You never know what someone is going through.

Whatever you do don't forget to tell those people special in your life you love them as you may never get another chance.  And read God's word and keep smiling.  Run from evil, pick right friends, and do good.

PRAYER:  I thank you Lord for wonderful people in my life and for saving me from things I did in past that were stupid.  My hope always is in you. In Jesus' name.  Amen.

Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."  Matthew 19:26

God can do anything.  Yes He can.  He does things for His purposes, His glory, and in His time. HIs plans are greater than our plans.

Many of you reading this may face a seemingly impossible situation and get impatient and angry with God.  How is your prayer life and Bible time?  Don't shut Him out.  I myself have waited for an answer to prayer and still wait but I know my ways and plans are not God's.  When you start to doubt you allow the devil to get a foothold and make you angry, worried or fearful.

I urge you to keep the faith.  Keep believing.  Keep praying.  Surround yourself with positive people and other prayer warriors to see you through your journey of waiting.  God hears you.

PRAYER:  Thanks for another day of life.  I thank you for struggles because they help make me stronger.  I choose patience and faith while I wait for what man says is impossible.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.

Stronger Through The Storm

Stronger Through The Storm

But mark this:  There will be terrible times in the last days.  2 Timothy 3:1

I am driving down the interstate one morning and up pops this catchy insurance company billboard which is my title today.  Storms of life are certainly not fun but many of them are almost necessary for making us into the people God intends for us to be.  A way of smoothing rough edges and making us a beautiful finished product in the Master's hand.

Many today think we are in the last days because of so much evil going on.  Broken families, riots, distrust of government, back stabbing by friends, terrorism within our own borders, homicides, lying, abortion of 52 million unborn babies, people unhappy with the gender God gave them wanting a sex change operation, and on and on it goes.  Within families alone many despair over prodigal children. 

God is on the throne.  He has not gone anywhere nor will He. Today I met a lady at the gas station in a God thing moment who told me I cheered her up as she had woken up gloomy.  There is no need to feel hopeless.  God has a plan.  Only trust Him. 

PRAYER:  I don't enjoy going through storms and trials Lord but ultimately you have a plan and purpose and I know the rest of the story as the late radio host Paul Harvey used to say.  I will trust in you.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.
