It’s been a while and I am sorry I have not been blogging at all recently. Work has been really busy, among other things, but getting all of said tasks within and without the context of work for now helps! I resolve, thus, to blog more regularly and hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas! So long as we don’t forget the Reason for the Season, all should be well. Truthfully, the month or so that I ended up taking off from blogging and such has changed much, but I am back now and a more mature person for it, I think.
That said, how were your Christmas Days and how will you celebrate the remaining eleven days of the season? Let me know! Thanks!
This is Michelle again. On the Ferguson issue, I have little to say but this and herein I post it:
That’s the sum of what I believe, right there. I imagine God is grieved, to say the least, that His loved ones and nonbelievers alike are hurting each other in the name of peace. What do you think? Who wants to change the world for God (the Christian God, as I am a Christian), with me?
Y’all, y’all, y’all, y’all!! I can’t even begin to summarize in words what I am feeling at the moment….at least not entirely adequately, though hopefully concisely!! Y’all….thank you for checking out that video I posted last night! It means a lot to me that y’all are seeing the Truth and I am reminded, by the grace of God, just how many people are looking for His love in Him and how desperate we all are for Him!!!!! Wow. Y’all have encouraged me in ways I cannot even begin to list here…..That said, I’m going to sign off for now, but wow…..Expect me to keep writing and encouraging you….That’s all that matters in the end, anyway, right? God be glorified and His people be edified and found in Him, past, present, and future.
By the way, if you have not checked out the video yet, here it is, once again:
He loves you so much…He loves all of us so much!!I pray you find true love and REST in Him….rest in Him and that He loves you!
That said, thank you again and God Bless you all. Finally, if you want to check out the full sermon, including the excerpt above, here it is: http://vimeo.com/112017331.
I can guarantee in no uncertain terms this is what life is for and meant to be for: God. Healing. Love. Redemption. I am proud to call Mosaic Christian Church my home church and thank my God every moment I realize how blessed I am!!
If you take nothing else from this excerpt of what the sermon at Mosaic was, know this: we are all broken and helpless to save and heal ourselves. Thank God, He is our Lord and Father, ever willing, ready and able to forgive. 2 Peter 3:9
By the way, in case you are interested in the full sermon:
It is 40 minutes long, including the excerpt of the video I just featured. I promise every minute is worth watching. God is working at Mosaic and everywhere else in the world. Don’t let the opportunity to find Him and/or grow closer to Him pass you by, now or ever. Living for Him is worth every moment of your time here on Earth and someday in Heaven if you have found Him. Matthew 11:28-30, John 3, John 17-21….I could go on, but this is it for now, to be concise. That said, I am also praying however you need it. Be blessed!
Sorry I am a bit late on the posting again. This poem came to me kind of suddenly when I was pondering what to write and it took a bit of editing to make it clearer and, consequently, more easily readable. Let me know what you think when you get the chance. Thanks!
But first, some notes are in order:
* Unless otherwise noted, all Scripture is taken from the New King James Version translation of the Bible.
+ Philippians 3:7
++ Matthew 5:3
+++ Jesus says “do not be afraid” many, many times in Scripture. There are so many times that the exact phrase appears in the Bible that listing them all would take hours. I leave you with this link and hope it will suffice, then!!
