Boy, what a week this has been!  My cardiology appointment went well, and, thank you, Jesus.  After my appointment I decided to take the afternoon off and go do a bit of sight seeing.  There’s a lot of construction going on all over Las Vegas.

Someone is opening a new wedding chapel downtown.  They’re re-purposing an old building.  I happened to notice a Porta Potty just outside the back door of the wedding chapel.  Now, I’ve been married twice…I thought to myself, “I wonder if that’s for those couples where you just know the whole relationship’s going to be down the toilet before the reception’s even over.  You know, the in laws haven’t met each other until the wedding day…and the fight’s on the minute Rudy tells “Skippy’s” wife to go “fetch” each of them a beer from the bar fridge…before the bride arrives in the limo…and sure enough, somebody invited cousin Leroy, the playboy…He goes to weddings to meet women…yep, I’m pretty sure that’s what that Porta Potty’s for…but hey, it’s really a good idea…when you think about those people with lactose intolerance and such…Hmm, I think I’m telling my children to elope…I’m kidding, kids, you know I carry a gun…LOL..oh, alright, I ‘ll be good then…

He’s Only Just Begun

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that Jesus doesn’t stop saving us when we get saved.  I hope you’ll all check the twolisteners.org website out and read the entire message, to help you understand what I’m talking about.

Salvation is an ongoing thing.  We get saved from death when we come to the Lord, accepting Him as Lord and Savior. (John 5:24)  But we also get saved as we’re going along and trying to walk out this new life with Him.  I can’t begin to tell you how many times Jesus has saved members of my family…from me.  He’s always saving me from myself; you know, the salty fries I’m not supposed to eat, the cookies that I really only need two of…Yeah, and then there are the two sizes too small pants…worked when I was 25.  But, if I tried that now, I’d have to call 911 just to get me back out of them.  Then again, maybe not.  Denim is so thin nowadays, I might be able to just bust out myself.  Jesus knows this.  So, He sends a little angel to whisper in my ear and remind me I have better sense than that.  He’s my Savior every day, all day long, He is.

The point I want to make is this:  Guess what, Mr./Mrs/Ms. Christian-you’re not perfect yet.  You still need Jesus just as much after 20, 30, 40 years, as you did when you first came running to Him.  And guess what else-He loves it!  He loves it when you are bold enough to come running and say, “Lord, I need you, cuz I really messed up…”  We shame and guilt ourselves out of that quite often, because we get under the mistaken impression that Salvation makes us perfect.  It does in God’s eyes, because He sees Jesus when He looks at us.  He sees Jesus’ righteousness; we don’t have any outside of Him. (Romans 3:10)  But God also remembers that we’re just babies spiritually.  That’s why Jesus is our Savior until that great day.  (Philippians 1:6)  He’s always ready, always willing, and always able, more than able!

“Well, Officer, these fireworks went off, and these two pigeons came flying up and almost ran right into each other in mid-air…well no, that’s not true…pigeons don’t run…well, not in mid-air, anyway…they almost flew into each other in mid-air…of course, they’d be flying in the air…ohhhhh…I’m so sorry I rear ended you, Sir….                                                    nncnp3g17zovk80h1ao5tgkn9q85wu9

That all actually went through my mind, on the fourth of July, as I was crossing the street…well, all except for that rear ending the officer part, thank God…and the fireworks did scare a couple of pigeons up into the air…and they almost collided in mid air…I’m still laughing at the sight. But really, you guys, shoo the pigeons away first, next time. That could have been bad…being hit by a falling pigeon…

Wow!  Only 5 days until the Fourth of July.  I always wanted to get married on the Fourth of July.  That way, my husband could always say there were fireworks on our wedding night.   My mother wasn’t so keen on a Fourth of July wedding; she didn’t really like my husband.  She thought a June wedding would be much better-because it’s Turkey Lovers Month.    She even picked the day; June 29th.  I looked that day up on one of those Holidays and Observances pages.  June 29th is Waffle Iron Day.  Needless to say, that day was scrapped right then!  I am not ironing any waffles, no Sir!  Not even for my hubby.

You Can Be All of Them Too

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that Jesus is all things to all men.  He meets each and every one of us at our deepest and immediate needs.  Did you need a comforter when you came seeking Him?  He came as a comforter to you.  Did you need strength?  He came as your strength.  Whatever it is, He fills the need.  He is in all and is all. (Ephesians 4:6)  Yes, He is; He said when we we’ve seen Him, we’ve seen the Father, right?  So, we are encouraged to see Him and His provision in each and every need of our own.

“The weak need My Strength.  The strong need My Tenderness.  The tempted and fallen need My Salvation.  The righteous need My Pity for sinners. The lonely need a Friend.  The fighters need a Leader.” – direct quote from the message.  Have you ever had to be strong for a friend or family member?  Have you ever hugged someone that needed to be hugged so very much?  How about being salvation to someone who’s had too much to drink or who is too ill or otherwise able to help themselves?  You were that to the man who fell on the street and needed someone to stay with him until the ambulance arrived.  Did you know that?  I don’t like the word pity; I prefer grace and compassion.  Sometimes that’s the hardest one, isn’t it?  No judging, just loving them anyway and walking it out with them.  I think you get the picture.  You are so very much more to those around you than you realize at times.  Don’t ever sell yourself short, because wait until Jesus shows you in Heaven all you were to the world you live in.  And believe me, it does multiply like those fishes and loaves.  Don’t be afraid to reach out, and never think you have nothing to give, or nothing of value to share.  God put it all within you.
