Mobilizing & “To Be Safe”

20 Jun

I sometimes have things I want to post when I’m nowhere near my laptop, so I have now downloaded the WordPress app onto my iPad – don’t know how often I’ll post anyway, but I like having the option.

This is my test post for the app, so I don’t have any planned brilliance to share this time. 😉 However, I would like to share a verse which our family has memorized for the 2014 National Bible Bee.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. Proverbs 18:10

The first bunch of times I read that verse, I remember thinking, “yeah, that’s great and all, but it’s only for the righteous.”

Thankfully though, we kept repeating it as we memorized it, and I recently connected some dots.

I AM righteous, in Jesus! So yes, I CAN run to the name of the Lord and be safe. 🙂

Just a sweet thought in my day.

“Oh Look At The Time!”

8 Jun

~ Just a short post, inspired by some thoughts I had this afternoon. ~

As the days continue to flow by, as the clock ticks ever on, one question that is always being asked: “When?”.

Right now, one “when” that’s often in our minds is, “When do we get to bring Yuri, Viktor, and Christina here?”.

Thankfully, we don’t need to worry about it, and we can instead bring that question often to God, trusting Him and His timing, but even so, I know I still catch myself thinking and planning, actually wasting the current moments, while thinking of those to come.

So what if we just loved each other in the now?

Loving God, and loving others…. on these two hang ALL the rest. Time could cease to exist, and yet still, Love.
