From the Pulpit & Into the Garden: "Grow Where You are Planted – Scatter Seeds of Inspiration!"

God is the Giver!

“I came into this world so those who can’t see, will see!”

God is the giver and we are the receivers! Jesus proved this many times through the miracles and wonders of his ministry; those recorded in the holy book.

Wherever Jesus went, there was always a large group of people in need of some sort of healing. One of the famous recorded miracles was the healing of the blind man; one without sight since birth.

Questions came up about the cause of the blindness: “Who is to blame for this man’s blindness?” Jesus’ response was, “No one!” He went on to explain, “I must work the works of him who sent me while it is still day. The night is coming soon.” (Jn. 3)

After being healed, the man was questioned. His response reminded me of the song Amazing Grace: “I was once blind, but now I can see.”

Is there a temporary hindrance blocking your view?

Are you blind to the opportunities God has in store for you? Are you focusing on what’s wrong instead of reaching towards what’s right?

God can and will utilize every being for good. Why?

When we become one with our good, we become one with God.

God gives and we receive; if we ask and believe.

“Ask and you shall receive!”

Expect, Believe & Receive

“When the sun seems to no longer shine in our lives, this is the moment to cling to God.”

We are developing a rhythm on our journey. The road to Golgotha is dusty and at times a bit narrow, with twists and turns. Not everyone will walk with me.

 “Will you walk with me?”

Why are you on this journey? What are you struggling with that you can’t let of? Trust in me to handle all the details of your life.

Expect a solution, “my soul waits upon God, for my expectation is from Him.”

Prepare your travel gear. Make sure the laces on yours shoes are tied tight.

Take one step toward God and hold on; “prepare yourself to receive all I have and so much more.”

Active faith will stir the Spirit, Believe!

 “Come and take my hand. I will show you the way.”*
