Farewell 2013, Hell-o 2014!

This is my last blog post for 2013.
Not sure what direction it will take for 2014
but I look forward to what God
is going to do with it.

The camera's perspective of this last sunrise for 2013
didn't even begin to capture the reality and vibrance of the pink and purple sky.
Hoping that in 2014 the veil will fall from our eyes 
and that we choose to see things through the
reality of God's perspective.

May 2014 be a year where we make informed decisions
rather than blindly following the masses.
In 2014 may we live without fear;
knowing that when God is with us,
there is nothing to fear.
Praying that 2014 is the year where kindness
becomes "the norm"
rather than a "random act".
Look to and rely upon God in 2014
instead of on the government.
Rather than focusing our energy on judging others,
may 2014 be the year we focus on changing ourselves
(for the better!)

Every day of 2014 remember;
with God, NOTHING is impossible.
Allow any anger from 2013 dissipate
and allow 2014 to be a year full of happiness!

We all have something to offer one another.
Allow others to learn from you
while you learn from them.

In 2014 share what you have
and don't worry about what you don't have.
Whatever you give to others will be returned to you,
pressed down, shaken and overflowing!
We are each a beautiful creation;
a child of God.
Be kind.
Be encouraging.
God is good, kind and generous ~
Expect GREAT things!
Make it a great year!!!

Isn't That Somethin'?

I have known the Lord all of my life.
My earliest memories are from when I was about three years old
and all of the good memories are of the Lord.
For over forty years He has walked with me and talked with me.
He has taught me about Himself
and continually shows me myself.
Through my real and personal relationship
with Him,
He has taught me more than
all of the preachers, teachers, evangelists and theologians
ever could.
Why is this?
Because He deals with and interacts with me on a personal level.
He relates to me based upon my life experiences
and upon who I am.
He never changes,
but I do.
And as I change,
He reveals new aspects and facets of Himself.
No two relationships with Him look the same
because He has created us differently - individually.
We all learn, perceive and process differently
and because He knows us better than we know ourselves,
He interacts with us accordingly.
There are no molds to fill
or methods to follow.
Jesus is the clearest example of what relationship
with Him is.
Jesus said that the things He said and did
were the very same things He heard the Father
say and saw the Father do.
And He said that we could
(and should)
do likewise.
And everything that Jesus said and did
was Kind, Loving and Good
because God is
Kind, Loving and Good!
Isn't that somethin'?
