  1. Hi Turtle, a great topic, I look forward to reading it as people continue to post. A song I really like is a song by Don Moen God Will Make a Way God will make a way Where there seems to be no way He works in ways we cannot see He will make a way for me He will be my guide Hold me closely to His side With love and strength for each new day He will make a way, He will make a way Oh, God will make a way Where there seems to be no way He works in ways we cannot see He will make a way for me He will be my guide Hold me closely to His side With love and strength for each new day He will make a way, He will make a way By a roadway in the wilderness, He'll lead me And rivers in the desert will I see Heaven and Earth will fade but His Word will still remain And He will do something new today Oh, God will make a way Where there seems to be no way He works in ways we cannot see He will make a way for me He will make a way
  2. Hi guys, I hope you all have had a good weekend. For the last week, the subject of this topic has been running through my mind. When talking to others, it seems so easy to say "I'll be praying for you". I think it is great to be praying for others; as we can do it no matter where we are. So, for those who say they are praying, what do you do, to make sure that you follow up with your commitment. So here leads to another question. I think we all know people who say they are praying, and we wonder if they ever do. But, we know that they will be thinking of us. Why is it so hard to tell someone that we are thinking of them, rather than praying for them? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. I often find I think on something for a while. And sometimes it's good to share to read your input. Thanks guys.
  3. Greetings Worthy friends, Last night my four year old was telling me about two friends from church. The funny thing was that though they both got her name wrong, she only corrected one of them. It was a great reminder how we relate to others differently, even without realizing it. I think of Job and his friends. Can you imagine what it was like for Job to hear from a friend that he must have done something wrong? Thinking of Jobs friends, how do we know when to share our opinion or when to keep it to ourselves? I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences with friends and what makes a good friend. I hope you have a great week.
  4. Hi Tigger56, Good to hear from you, thank you for sharing and adding to the topic. I always find it easier to remember an idea when a personal illustration is added to the idea. I can do relate to the differences between spouses, as to how things should be done. When it comes to making beds, I think of my own girls and how easy it can be to make their beds for them, because I want it to ne neater. However, they won't get neater if I keep doing it for them. And as for outsiders input into something we are already confident about; that can cause frustration. I hope you have a good week.
  5. Hi Who Me, I think it is far too easy for us to plan our perfect life, the way we want it, without realizing that we have done so.
  6. Hi guys, I hope you have all had a good week. I was just thinking about the message we heard this morning and one part stood out. I am sure many of you, like to go away with something that I can think about. During the message we were given the chance today to think about something that we like to do our OWN way. The pastor gave a real life llustration (that happened this morning) of a woman running, refusing to move into the side lane, though it would prevent her from being bumped by traffic. Not only did she refuse to move over. But she made it visibly noticeable that she was going to have her own way. I wonder if she knew she treated a pastor like that? If she had any idea that she would be included as an illustration of how determined we can be. I wonder how would she feel knowing that so many heard about her behavior. And then I wonder, what is something that I need to work on... I thought I would share, not that I want to judge, but know it is something I will be thinking about the next couple days. God bless.
  7. Hi Naomi, I love the opportunity that this post gives for us to think about what we do have to be grateful for. Being a fan of the movie the Sound of Music, I can't help but think of the words to the one song that goes on to list so many favorite things... In no order of preference, and over and above appreciation for friends and family, some of my favorite things include: 1. The smell of freshly cut lawn 2. The smell of fresh rain on a hot side walk 3. Watching the sunset 4. Seeing the sun shining after a period of cloudy days 5. The smell of freshly made popcorn 6. A clean house

  9. Hi Promises, Good to hear from you. Thank you for taking the time to share. I do think you share a good message to all of us, that we intentionally take time to allow our lives to be influenced by His Word and abide in Him. I think it makes so much difference in how we view a situation, others and even ourselves when we have spent time with God and in the Word. Thank you for sharing. God bless.
  10. Hi Selah, I agree, we never know when we will have an opportunity to speak up. And I guess the question remains if we are put in a situation where we can speak up, will we? Thanks for sharing. God bless.
  11. Thanks for taking the time to share Debp. It is so easy to get involved in our own world and forget what others are going through. I definitely think that a lot can be said for how our actions can have an impact on others. God bless.
  12. Hi Naomi, good to hear from you. I have seen it go both ways, where someone thinks that they are helping and end up doing more harm than good, but I have also seen where speaking up changes someone's life. I know that a topic like this can have so many different responses to it, and I think it is great that people are willing to share.
  13. Greetings Tzephanyahu, Thank you so much for taking the time to share. You did share so much, and I do appreciate you sharing. I do think that some of these topics do need to be out there to give people a chance to think about and ponder over. I will definitely come back and read what you have shared. I do think that it is important how we live our lives so that there is something different about us. And consider if our thoughts and actions are bringing a light. I will be thinking about the illustration you have about the piano player for a while. God bless.
  14. Good afternoon everyone, I hope that you have had a good start to your new week. The girls were off school yesterday, so today kind of feels like Monday to me. They have a two and a half day week this week and are off again. So I thought I would try get caught up a bit here today. Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to read and respond. I really do appreciate it and love that we can learn from one another. In conversation with various people over the last couple weeks, the topic has come up that we need to speak up more than we do at times. This morning I got a message, from a friend, saying she has been away and visiting with a cousin. While she has been there, her cousin gave his heart to the Lord. This brought me back to the conversation, when we do we speak up about things that we truly care about, whether it be telling others about the Lord or giving our honest answers to discussions when our opinion may vary greatly. I know that some will approach anyone from family to strangers, and right away try and convince them that they are wrong. And maybe in some cases it works. I personally have never found arguing a very helpful way of convincing a person that they need to change, or even a tool that makes them think that they need to change. I know of someone had who created a signature message that was automatically added to the end of his work email; so it was there on any message sent out, it gave reference to God. He was asked to please remove it, which he did. Last week one of the girls were so happy when she came back from art, saying that one of their teachers had quoted a saying, who, to others was just a piece of wisdom. She really wanted to let her teacher know that she had jus quoted something from the Bible. I would love to hear what experiences you have had or maybe even experienced. What worked for you and perhaps what didn't.
  15. For sure Neighbor, we are waiting for His return. Thanks for the great reminder of a very important truth. I hope you have a great day
