It's PRAYER Time, NOT SHOW Time!

Greetings!

BlogFam, 
We are continuing our BEST PRACTICES Series, so let's just jump right into our scripture for today...

5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself... Reinterpreted

Greetings!

BlogFam, 
As we continue our #BestPractices Series, our verses for today remind me of an instruction that I am sure that all of us heard as children...  KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF! This phrase was used most often was a word of caution to not hit, punch, or poke other children or people.  It was an early lesson on setting boundaries and respecting personal space.  I can appreciate the intentions behind these words and have followed and shared the same instruction with others.

#BestPractices: Introduction to Matthew 6

Greetings!

BlogFam - 
One of my favorite verses in the bible to remind myself of my life's priorities is Matthew 6:33.  "But  seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."  In countless decisions and words of advice to others, this verse has been a timely and appropriate mantra.  So, this morning, I was very excited when the focal verse of my morning devotional was from the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 6, and I just read the entire chapter for my own edification.

The SpotLIGHT is On You!

Greetings!

BlogFam, 
A spotlight is: 
 a strong, focused light thrown upon a particular spot, as on a small area of a stage or in a television studio, for making some object, person, or group especially conspicuous.

A spotlight is used to focus your attention on a particular point that you might have otherwise overlooked, ignored, or dismissed.  A spotlight is very helpful in guiding you to whatever is the most important movement or message at the time.

Something is Missing

SOMETHING IS MISSING

Friends, I know that I have not written a blog post in a few weeks and I offer no excuses to that end.  But today, I could not move through this day without releasing what is in my head and in my heart.  I honestly feel like my head is about to pop and my heart is about to explode because of all that I am learning, reading, seeing, hearing, feeling and sensing all around me.  And in times like this, I cannot always find the right words to say.  But I am often reminded in these times of the words of a song I learned as a child… Jesus is the answer for the world today… Above Him there’s no other…  Jesus is the way… If you have some questions in the corner of your mind, traces of discouragement and peace you cannot find… Reflections of your past seem to face you every day but this one thing I do know, Jesus IS THE WAY.
