Gratitude Attitude

A person expressing gratitude by placing their hand over their heart.

1 Thessalonians gives us what we all look for, the will of God for our lives. It also gives a command from God. He commands us: in everything give thanks. In everything give thanks. Everything. Why? Because we serve a good God. He does no evil to us. He wants us to rejoice in our lives regardless of the circumstance. We (those that have Yeshua) have that blessed hope and our lives are a continual reflection of this.

It's 5783; Let's Clean House

Graphic of a latex cleaning glove.

Happy New Year! Hag Sameach! Shana Tova!! Let’s prepare for the new year. Let’s clean house.

My house is a balligon. I mean a mess. I am in the process of moving again! This time it’s just room to room. But it's four rooms we are switching. Aghhh! It is so hard to think, work on my writings, focus on new projects, be creative, and it is actually depressing to me. Forget having guests over, and I love to entertain! There is no way. The bad part is that even when and if I can get the stuff shoved into a bedroom, I would go crazy knowing that the stuff needs to be organized and put in its place or thrown out.

The Truth is Out There

How I long for the months gone by, for the days when God watched over me, when his lamp shone on my head and by his light I walked through darkness! Oh, for the days when I was in my prime, when God’s intimate friendship blessed my house, when the Almighty was still with me and my children were around me, when my path was drenched with cream and the rock poured out for me streams of olive oil. (Job 29:2-6, NIV)

Presently, our great and wonderful State of Texas...

So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. (Matt. 28:8, English Standard Version)

Trembling but ecstatic they went out and fled from the tomb. (Mark. 16:8, New Living Translation)

Crown Him with Many Crowns

Graphic of a crown.

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receives the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that strives for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible crown. (1 Cor. 9:24-25, KJV)

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing (1 Thessalonians 5:11, NIV).

Christ Killer

Image of colorful broken glass representing Kristallnacht.
No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father. (Jn. 10:18, New International Version)

Everyone who has seen the movie Schindler's List remembers the Germans lining the streets during Kristallnacht1 screaming “Christ Killer! Christ Killer!” at the Jews who were being paraded to the ghettos for confinement. This was not something a screenwriter dreamed up; it was reality. So-called Christians have given this label and other atrocious monikers to Jews since shortly after the death of Jesus.
