You and Me

We are friends.  Jesus and Me.  He sits shotgun when I drive, He is my conscious when I’m stuck with a decision.  When I’m in anguish, He comforts me.  When I am bored, I get into the Word for inspiration and encouragement.  Songs have been written about this friendship:  “What a friend we have in Jesus” or “Jesus is a friend of mine.”  Jesus is the original friend on Facebook; He tweets out blessings every day, and Pinterest?  Yah, no more card catalogs in heaven!  🙂

If Jesus isn’t your best friend, you need to take a look at who fills that spot.

On This Day

Facebook has a feature called “On This Day,” it’s a flashback to the past, a year ago, three years ago, 6 years ago.

And, as only Facebook can do, it picks out the positive during that time frame.

Unfortunately, life can be ugly or hurtful.  And looking back a year, or three is not something most of us want to reflect on.  Why?   We have enough to get through in the day-to-day.  Human beings struggle.  So does a Christian.  We are not immune to heartache or bad memories.

Philippians 4:12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
Hebrews 11: 39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, 40 since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.

Less feelings, more Jesus.  Less worry, more prayer.  Less heartache, more healing. 

Pieces of Peace

I held off and didn’t post this right away; to see if the world would calm down in the aftermath of the U.S. election for President.  I do think on social media, 1/2 of the people are still searching to answers “why” and the other 1/2 have gotten back to work, home, their daily life.   I fall into the latter camp.

Back in biblical times I imagine there were similar elections, their rulers and kings holding the highest office in the world, being voted in – or perhaps there was just a lot of mayhem and then someone said I AM KING.

And then there is this 8 year old kid!

Our voting process is probably MUCH more civil than in biblical times.  So if that helps with your angst, yay!!

Genesis 31:44 Come now and we will sign a peace pact, you and I, and will live by its terms.
Romans 16:17  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
Psalm 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
