HE Never Changes

I have had several recent conversations with friends, and one in particular, who is very disappointed in people and in God.

I have several thoughts on this subject:

1. People are sinful. People disappoint.

2. God can use anyone to bring Himself glory. (to show who He is)

3. I don't understand God. I am glad I don't. As our youth minister said Sunday, " I am glad I serve a God that I don't understand."

4. Jesus LOVES you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jesus LOVES me! His love for me is not based on what I do or how I act. God IS Love! I don't have to earn His love!

5. "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever." Hebrews 13:8
James 1:17 says, "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who DOES NOT CHANGE like shifting shadows."

Great post... we can all be disappointed sometimes and life sometimes gets us down, but God never changes. He is our healer and can do all things...

So true! I loved what one of our worship leaders said recently...something like, "We serve a God who never changes, yet He is constantly making all things new! He's the same, but His mercies are new EVERY morning!"

Amen to all of that!

Oh, how glad I am that God's love towards me is not based on my actions but purely and solely on HIS love for me!!! What a glorious truth!!

This has such clarity, the truth is so revealed, God has spoken clearly through you. Your words are an encouragement, I hope your friend sees them and clings to them.

If we understood everything about God then He wouldn't be God. We aren't meant to understand everything....I don't think our hearts and minds could take it! He alone is God! And I am thankful for that!
Great thoughts Laurie!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
