Today’s Musing:

John 3:16 KJV For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

What is wrong with our world today? Just look at the broadcasted news on television. Observe all the turmoil that seems to dominate the headlines. Fortunately, there is some good news to broadcast but seldom does it garner the headlines. There are some people that really make a difference in the lives of others. One of our local television stations has a show “Pay it Forward”. Praise God, there are people in the world today that do make an effort to assist others in need. This same station also takes some bad news and turns it into good news for people who need has someone “In Their Corner”. Let’s not focus on the bad news in the world. Let’s remember that the good news and best news is that God sent his some Jesus Christ to give us all the opportunity to turn to Him for the promise of a much better live to follow after physical death.

Today’s Musing:

Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Time is so precious. Time is one of the most misused resources that we have as God’s creation. How much time to you spend on social media? How much time to you spend conversing with family and friends? How much time to you give to the Lord every day? How much time do you waste with trivial matters? These are just a few questions that came to mind as I considered how much time that I probably spend unwisely or, in fact, fail to spend as much time as I should in pursuing how God wants me to use the time I am blessed with.

It would be well if you and I would start each day off with a prayer asking the Lord to help us be a good steward of the time that we have for that day. God will always honor our commitment to use our time wisely.

Today’s Musing:

Isaiah 55:6 KJV Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

“Hurry up and wait” is an expression that all of us have had to deal with at one time or another. When I was in the military for four years, I heard it used quite frequently. During recent years, I’ve had that same experience with all kinds of appointments. Most organizations ask you to report fifteen to thirty minutes early and then you never get into that appointment at that time.

Well there is a time when hurry up and wait is important. I believe it is paramount that everyone hurry up and accept Jesus as Lord of their life. Then, spend the rest of your life in service while waiting for our appointment with the Lord. It’s that important to seek forgiveness of sin before judgment day approaches. I hope and pray you have made your appointment. If not, then why not do so today before your time here on earth runs out.

Today’s Musing:

Psalms 119:2 KJV Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

Being Blessed – A grateful feeling when favorable resolution is received and accepted.

If you have found favor from God, you know what being blessed is all about. There can be expected or anticipated blessings. There could possibly be unexpected blessings. Any blessing from God is to be received with appreciation and acceptance. A blessing from a friend usually is something that is a result of love shared with others. Being blessed is a feeling we all can enjoy if there is an ongoing personal relationship with God and those in your area of influence.

Please look around you for people that you can show favor to. That which goes around will usually return. The same applies as you faithful serve God.

Today’s Musing:

Romans 3:23 KJV For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Sin – Missing the mark that God has established for you.

We all know that difference between right and wrong. As I thought about sin, the thought came to mind that not everyone agrees on what is right or wrong. For instance, I believe if a man and woman live together they should be married. Having stated that, I will remark that sometimes there may be extenuating circumstances. Each of us need to be accountable to God for the choices we make. I will always believe that there are possible solutions to every extenuating circumstance. People need to seek the Lord’s leadership in finding a solution that removes any burden of sin. There are many sins. Some may be classified as great sin and others as minor sin. Unfortunately, sin is sin. Seek to keep sin out of your life by following the word of God If you do so, the future will be less burdensome for all parties involved.
