Here is a fascinating thing to consider today.

Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself. (2 Timothy 2:11-13 NIV)

He,s faithful even we are faithless! That’s amazing! It is so comforting to know that the Creator of the world is faithful to us, despite our continuous efforts to act like we really don’t need him!

I hope this brings you peace today and that you learn from this fascinating characteristic of God. Maybe this is something that you can apply to your own relationships ?

I find it pretty humbling to read words like this in the book of Jeremiah

These are the words of the Lord, who made the earth, shaped it, and gave it order

I mean really, I can hardly get dry wall mud to go on smooth, or even drive a nail straight, yet I am able to listen to the words of the creator of the world?  Seriously, when you stop and think about that, that pretty ridiculous – ridiculously amazing! And then actually listen to his words

‘Judah, pray to me, and I will answer you.

what! The creator of the world says that if you talk with him, he will not only listen, but he will answer!  Again, that’s pretty ridiculous, ridiculously awesome!  I mean, what an awesome promise.

Do you live your days in blessing of that promise?

“These are the words of the Lord, who made the earth, shaped it, and gave it order, whose name is the Lord: ‘Judah, pray to me, and I will answer you. I will tell you important secrets you have never heard before.’  Jeremiah 33:2-3  (NCV)

Forgetting and Remembering

I can’t believe I forgot and let y’all down, I didn’t realize yesterday’s date until late last night!  10-11-12!  What fun!  I guess I will know have to wait until next November to have that sort of fun with dates.

Since I am writing and you are now reading about forgeting, and remembering, maybe a little look back in Deuteronomy is good today.  This promise was given to the Israelites as they left Egypt and entered the promise land, but might just be a good thing for us to remember in this time and age as well.


11 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. 12 For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, 13 and when your flocks and herds have become very large and your silver and gold have multiplied along with everything else, be careful! 14 Do not become proud at that time and forget the Lord your God, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt. 15 Do not forget that he led you through the great and terrifying wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, where it was so hot and dry. He gave you water from the rock! 16 He fed you with manna in the wilderness, a food unknown to your ancestors. He did this to humble you and test you for your own good. 17 He did all this so you would never say to yourself, ‘I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy.’ 18 Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath.   Deuteronomy 8:18 New Living Translation (NLT)

Grab It

Last week, I visited the physical therapist to have some work done on my “crunchy” patella tendon.  While I was there the PT asked me if I had ever had a cortison shot in my knee. Upon my postive reply she ask when?  After thinking for a moment, I remember my last shot before the Boston in 1996, so I replied 96.  She laughed and walked off. Ouch!

Last night, my sister sent me some pictures of one of my childhood homes that she visited during her high school reunion, I barely recongized the place as it has changed so much.  Ouch! Oh and then I realized that my parents were around my age when we moved out of that house.  Double Ouch!!!

Today, I dropped my two children off for the start of high school and junior high respectivitely. Triple Ouch!

I have been reminded with quite a lot of force over the last few days about the passing of time and the true breivity of life.   However, I am also reminded about the richness of blessings that I have enjoyed in this life here, even while I focus on the coming promise!

Even so, there’s no getting around the actuteness of our lives.  But this is not a time to be sorrowful, nor regretful.  This is a time to throw up your RAWK Fist and grab life, before it’s gone!


 31So eat your meals heartily, not worrying about what others say about you—you’re eating to God’s glory, after all, not to please them. As a matter of fact, do everything that way, heartily and freely to God’s glory. 1 Corinthians 10:31 The Message (MSG)

Straight Day

Here in America where we use the middle endian date format, today is a straight.  Well, a small straight, 8-9-10.  Just to go with that fun calendar theme, that doesn’t happen very often, I decided to just gamble a little with my verse of the day. So I headed over to the 8th book of the New Testament, the 9th chapter and the 10 verse to see what I would fine.  ( I know pretty risky right!)
And look what I found there:

10Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness 2 Corinthians 9:10 (New International Version)

The message looked pretty interested, so it was probably worth stepping back for some context:

8-11God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done. As one psalmist puts it,

He throws caution to the winds,
giving to the needy in reckless abandon.
His right-living, right-giving ways
never run out, never wear out.
This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God. (2 Corinthians 9:10, The Message)

Wow, God is promising that he will give to you in abundance grace and mercy, that you will ready to serve and give to others.  It’s a great promise, and provides a great deal of strength to tackle anything that is in front of you.

Take the gamble today, and give away what you have been given.  Watch how it will grow!
