When I first saw GCB advertised I thought to myself, “That’s another show I won’t watch.” If this is how Christians are viewed, then we seriously need to revive the WWJD? (What Would Jesus Do?) movement.
I just looked at my bank account balance and I mumbled a prayer, “God, I’m running out of money. Please let my classes sell.”
O, Holy Night is one of my favorite Christmas carols and I wondered who wrote it and what was the story behind it. I saw Wintley Phipps on CBN recently and he said it was a negro spiritual. That caught my attention since it doesn’t sound like the typical gospel song.
Soul Surfer is the true story starring AnnaSofia Robb as Bethany Hamilton a teen surfing star in Hawaii who looses her left arm to a shark attack.
Today I got my last of the severance checks. I’m on my own now. I have reasons to worry.
Yet, God wanted me to get the message – Dont’ Worry! Trust Me.
I read several devotionals each morning it’s my time with God trying to get a line on what and where He want’s me to do.
The first one is from David Jeremiah:
I call to you, LORD, every day; I spread out my hands to you.~Psalm 88:9b
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. ~Philippians 4:6-9
With the final paragraph reading:
The more we fill our heart and mind with godly prayer and meditation, the less room there will be for worry.
The I pick up 365 Days of WWJD and get:
“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” ~Matthew 6:27
“For those of us of restless heart, we must put aside our quest for peace and simply do what Jesus would do. Avoid Turmoil. Cherish inner renewal. Give God time. Love much. Peace will be the result.” (Dec. 15)
Joyce Meyer’s Hearing from God each Morning reassured me that Jesus is my friend:
You are my friends if you do what I command.~JOHN 15:14
You have a personal relationship with God; He’s your friend.
Ending with today’s Our Daily Bread: A Supporting Role
Thank You Lord, I got the message.
