Why do We Need Organization in Our Lives?

We were expecting the delivery of a new King size bed.
 Tommy could not run his bulldozer one rainy day that week, so we decided it would be the perfect day to move our bed to the guest room. 
 
This made for perfect timing to move the old bed out to make room for the new bed.
I have been trying to get our home organized. 
I have neglected organizing our home for too long.
First we had to move the double sized bed out of the guest room.
It went in the living room, where it could not stay.
We moved the queen sized bed in to the guest bedroom.

The thought came to me more than once that all I am doing is just moving stuff from one room to the next with out dealing with it.
We have to move the old out to make room for what is good and right.

WHAT IS PERPETUAL CARE?

Maybe the Jack Rabbit is contemplating  the meaning of perpetual care.
The definition in Webster’s dictionary is:
1. lasting or enduring forever or for an indefinitely long time; eternal; permanent.
I went to do some perpetual care on my parents, grandmother and brother’s graves today.
I found the graves in a very unkempt manner.
I was upset because someone is supposed to keep the plot neat and tidy.
It was included in the burial plan.
My Mother was the one who made sure the perpetual care was lasting, enduring forever and for an indefinitely long time.
However, she cannot make sure it is done in an eternally or permanently way.
She cannot make sure it is done at all since she has left this world.
It dawned on me that the fact is, that job has been passed on to me.
Now it is up to me to see that the perpetual care of my family’s grave sites gets done.
The truth is that we are human and we fail.

God is not human and He never fails us.
He is our Perpetual Care taker.
He has promised us that He will take care of us and He has.

John 3:16

“”For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
What an awesome promise of perpetual care?
We do not have to be concerned with whether someone
will take care of us.
We have God’s promise that He has taken care of our perpetual care.
He gave His only Son to accomplish this.
Jesus is our lasting and enduring care.
Jesus will be our care forever, for an indefinitely long time; for eternity; and permanently.
Rest in His promises
The Peace That Passes all Understanding in a world gone wild.
Romans 8:28




Some Adjustments to my Blog and Attitude.

Sometimes we just have to adjust things.
I  adjusted  my blog this morning. 
Tell me what you think.
Does it look better or does it still need some adjusting?
We all need to adjust our attitude sometimes. 
We may need to adjust how we treat God.
We may need to adjust how we treat others.
We may need to adjust how we treat ourselves.
Whatever it is that we need to adjust, let us pray to have our eyes opened.
Romans 8:28

Open Our Eyes that We May See

2 Kings 6:16-17
Open our eyes Lord that we may see the armies of horses and chariots of fire all around us,
 just as they were all around Elisha.
Open our eyes to satan so that we may see his tricks.
Satan puts blinders on us in many different forms.
He blinds us with too much to do in the name of work,
 rest, relaxation and recreation.  
We neglect You.
He blinds us with problems with our children, 
families and friends.
We fail to see Your might and power.
We fail to praise and honor You.
He blinds us with health issues and steals our energy so we run out steam.
We do not think we can service You.
He blinds us to put him first on our list. 
Then all of the things of the world will be ours …….
We put You last on our list, or not at all.
Open our eyes Oh Lord, 
that we may see that You will defeat satan
if we only stand firm and pray as Elisha did.
Open our eyes Lord that we may see the armies of horses and chariots of fire all around us…
Ephesians 6: 12-13
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
 but against the rulers, 
against the powers,
 against the world forces of this darkness, 
against the spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God,
so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, 
and having done everything,
to stand firm.
Have a Blessed Day.

Do We treat God Like He is Just Another one of our Loved Ones????

Adapted and Reposted 3-26-2011

Acts 17:27

I walked outside this morning and heard my Mother’s wind chimes. 
I said, “Hello Mother.” 
I thought about my favorite niece and great niece who are on a road trip down Route 66.
The thought came to me. 
Do we treat God like He is just another one of our relatives or friends?
Do we spend time with Him only when it is convenient for us?
Do we go to scheduled worship services so we can say,” okay I did my duty for this week.?”
Do we pray only when we feel so guilty that we cannot stand it anymore or when we need something? 
Subconsciously we say okay, “I’ll pray so I can ease my conscience.”
Why is it that we only have time for God when it is convenient for us?
Acts 17:24-30
“The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands;
nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things;
and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,
that they world seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;”
for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’
“Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man.”
“Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent,”
Let us aspire to spend more time with our Heavenly Father and our earthly family and friends.
