PM#0532 Consider Somthing Beautiful

Consider Something Beautiful
Matthew 6:28 & 29

What next?  Have you ever asked yourself that question after listening to the news?  It doesn’t matter whether it is the evening news or the morning news. 

There are times I need a lift from all the news rift-raff, and consider what Christ did.  He recognized a source of beauty.  He said in Matthew 6:28 and 29 to consider the lilies of the field…yet Solomon and all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Evidently Christ enjoyed something beautiful.

I would encourage you to follow Christ’s example; take time and enjoy the beauty of the flowers.  It will lift you day, much better than the news.

Consider this prayer,  Father, help me enjoy the flowers that you have made, and give you thanks for them.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

PM#0531 The Way I See it

The Way I See It

Do our minds control how we let God work?

That is a question that I would like to answer by sharing from my own experience.  I have heard the words “The way I see it” so many times, I now recognized that that is self thinking.  I personally have been there, and have justified my words many times.  What I missed when I justified those words, was recognizing how I was limiting the way God could work.

The words “The way I see it” do not allow for me the opportunity to let God be fully involved in my life.  It is hard to let go of self thinking.

So what did I do?  I started seeking His wisdom.  Am I perfect at that approach—no—but I have a God who helps me.

Perhaps our Prayer should be:  Father, teach me your way.  In Jesus Name, Amen.
