Monday Words for the Soul~June 30

Because of Grace, He uses even our errors to help us…

Money is tight; tuition is up, and taxes are due…Because of Grace, a mistake in math from 36 months ago, 36 months ago, resulted in an unknown higher account balance and funds can be disbursed.

36 months ago…is it a miracle that it turned out this way or is it a miracle that I am still incredulous and surprised by Grace?

We must cherish these things and not run our feet bare by chasing false securities which will not quench our thirst. ~Michael Cartwright, My Spiritual Walk with God

Midweek Question ~ Is it hard for you to believe?

Midweek Question: Is it Hard for you to … Believe?

me too sometimes

Todd Agnew

the most irksome guy at college was the guy who was so sure of his salvation.

was he irksome because he spoke the truth…or was he irksome because I did not want to believe it?
because I thought I needed to earn it?

Lyrics to The One You Want I can’t, let you see me, this way
How could you love me in my shame?
I fell, God I’m filthy again
Still I hear you call my name

[Chorus:]
It’s hard for me to believe
I could be lovely in Your eyes
That I’m really the one you want

It’s hard for me to believe
You would want me by your side
That I’m really the one you want
I’m really the one you want

I wish my stumbling finally would end
But I need your mercy once again
I’ve shed these years so many times
Still you pick me up and hold me tight

[Chorus]

And you love me, you love me
You love me still
You love me, you love me
And you always will, You will

(the one you want)
I’m really the one you want
(the one you want)

[Chorus]

It’s hard for me to believe
I could be lovely in Your eyes
I’m really the one you want
(the one you want)

It’s hard for me to believe
You would want me by your side
I’m really the one you want
(the one you want)

And you love me, you love me
You love me still
You love me, you love me
And you always will

This Weekend~Go on a Digital Detox~June 20

Go on a Digital Detox

“while we’re doing a digital detox we’re allowing our thoughts and conversations to get all the way to their conclusion” ~Frances Booth

What is a Digital Detox?

A digital detox is switching off all mobiles, smartphones, tablets, laptops, and computers for a certain length of time. Spend your screen-free time slowly reconnecting with your Grace and Bliss. Get outside–that is where the ultimate cognitive benefit awaits, according to this study from the University of Michigan. A digital detox is also a chance to recharge and rest, writes Booth in this post.

Although  recommends a minimum of 24 hours, any amount of time is a good place to start. Start small and unplugged for a little bit of scheduled time and then build on that success to longer amounts of time unplugged and un-digitized.
