Rejoice, people of God! The fight is FIXED!

Remember the story of David and Goliath? While many of us recall the story from Sunday School, the Lord pointed out three important reminders that we can apply today.

Wonderfully made..

Hey fam! This is a quick reminder post from a while back. I was poking around on a couple of sites on the Internet and came across this picture: I think many of us wish for, fret about, or loathe something about our faces or bodies–believe me, I GET it.  In fact, we spend a LOT of time, energy and money on comparisons,  youth potions or the latest diet fads. Or we just do nothing. At. All.  These are NOT options! Bottom line: Now, let the record show, I am ALL for looking your best and being healthy, now–we just have to work with what God gave us (not always easy) and if there is something within our control we can improve, then, sure go for it.  In the meantime, let’s ask God to help us remember He took the time to make us special, to be you and no one else for a reason! Be blessed and thanks for stopping by!   Love   BlenCouragesU

A Fixed fight—David & Goliath

Hey family! Happy July to you! Can you believe we are more than halfway through another year? I have heard the older you get, the faster time goes and I am certainly a witness to that! Anyway, I’d like to share a classic Bible story with you–David and Goliath. While many of us know and remember the story from Sunday School, I was recently reminded of the spiritual significance. I Samuel 17 tells how giant Goliath, champion of the Philistines taunted the Israelites twice daily for over a month–looking for someone to fight him. He was “kind” enough to make a deal with the Israelites: if they won, the Philistines would be their servants, but if he won the Israelites would be servants to the Philistines. I wonder if Goliath and his crew rested assured thinking, “yep, we got them right where we want them.” Meanwhile, the word tells us the Israelites were dismayed and greatly afraid! These were the same people who experienced the blessings (and punishment) of God, but likely because Goliath was …

Hey family! I am interrupting the salt series in the spirit of Christmas! I thought I’d re-share a written excerpt from a scene in a play that the youth of Meriden Bible Way (Meriden, CT) wrote and put on for Christmas a few years ago. This was the “sermon” part of the play. Enjoy! Jesus IS the reason for the season.. “You see church, some folk saw Jesus, just as a prophet or teacher Abba, Rabbi, and a good preacher. But got the that really know His Holy pages, we know: To the geologist He is the Rock of Ages. To the Doctor, He is the Great Physician To the Carpenter, He is the Master Builder. And any foundation, needs a Chief Cornerstone. A Lawyer, you never need one, cause we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous—HALLELUJAH! To the Astronomer, He is the Bright and Morning Star, To the Botanist, He is the Lily of the Valley…. If you’re wandering today, The…
