A Word from The Sponsor~November 18

carousel lit

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us [this offering of yours] will result in thanksgiving to God. This service you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
~2 Corinthians 9:11,12*

and

On your feet now — applaud God! Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into his presence. Know this: God is God, and God, God. He made us; we didn’t make him. We’re His people, His well-tended sheep. Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praise. Thank him. Worship him. For God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever ~Psalm 100 MSG

~~A batch of bitterness left my heart that I had forgotten was there. It feels so good not to have bad feelings toward anybody. How did this happen? Gently click to this insightful post by Steve Simms called When Somebody’s Done You Wrong

~~Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is this  

~~Grace obligates us to obey Jesus, regardless of the circumstances or consequences. ~Jon Walker,  Serving Even When It Is Inconvenient

~~It seems that resting more and more in God’s love, brings longings to create. I really love this Decorative Clipboard Tutorial

~~Been reading and re-reading this poem by Abilgail Wurdeman called Whole. What caught my eye at first were the words about stomping and whining (me). What sustains my attention is the miracle that He has “infused” my life with His Spirit. Would you consider playing the video by Shaun Groves while you read and reread the poem?

Whole

Though I stomp and whine and moan

for my own idea of completion,

I see that You have already made me whole.

And so I praise you

for the body that sustains me

and the spirit that fills me,

for the friends that support me

and the family that guides me,

for the work that challenges me

and the play that thrills me,

for the knowledge that grounds me

and the faith that centers me.

You infuse my life with Your spirit.

Thank You for the kind of completion

only Your hands can design.
