Oh, Give Thanks!

“Oh, give thanks unto the Lord for He is good, for He is good….”  These lyrics are in my my spirit today. I don’t know who wrote the song, but it’s one of my favorites.  Every time I hear it, I’m reminded of Sunday mornings at the Baptist church I grew up in as a little girl.  Sweet memories. I don’t have much to say today other than, I’m grateful!  As you reflect on the goodness of God today, let Him know how much you appreciate His goodness and mercy towards you.

Mediate on this: “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”  — Psalm 136: 1



It’s Time to Go

Go!  That was the central theme of the message delivered by my pastor today.  And just the Word I needed to hear.  Since returning from Uganda last fall, I’ve been sitting on the sidelines, licking my wounds.  No job. Dwindling financial resources. Bills pilling up.  But even in the midst of this temporary trial, I’m reminded that there is still work to do for the Kingdom of God.  Today, I am reconnecting with my passion to share testimonies, and I’m starting with my own.  What about you?  What’s your excuse?  What’s preventing you from moving forward? One thing I know for sure is that God has placed a beautiful dream inside the heart of every man. (See Jeremiah 29:11).  If you too have been sitting on the sideline of purpose,  I invite you to join me today in reconnecting with your God-given dream.  There are precious souls waiting on the other side of our courage to move beyond our comfort zone.  Will you join me?

Meditate on this: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.  — Matthew 28:19-20.
