Daily Thought: It Begins with Us

"The beginning point is always ourselves.  We must submit our lives to Jesus Christ, let him change our hearts and character, become servants, and model a life of humility and sacrifice.  Then our spiritual density will make us magnetic.  The more Christ reigns in our lives, the more people will be drawn to the Jesus in us." ~ Erwin McManus, An Unstoppable Force, p. 78

This is the daily thought that should be on everyone's to do list and as a future politician, I will promise not only to the People but the Lord that I will be a living example of the salt of the world!

It's going to be a struggle for me to be around others who don't see the world as I do nor follow the Word as I do either. I know that most politicians don't follow the Word nor do they follow His Commandments either.

It's going to be one heck of a future for me but I'm going to make it. I know I'll living through the time that Christ will indeed return and all nations will be judged. I hope I'll be President that day for this nation to bring this nation to peace and back to the Lord.

Paul, I thank you for your writings and I thank you for your donations on my blog. The only problem that I have with my blog is that the Republic of China continues to block their citizens from accessing my blog because its political. I noticed this due to the declining readership in China on my blog, it was strange. If China wants to block it then I'm going to continue to attract the Chinese to learn about more the US through me. This is why I updated my meta tags and started promoting my blog on Chinese forums.

Prayer: Married Bedtime Prayer

My wife Jenny and I have been using the Bedtime Prayer that John Eldredge wrote for Walking with God as part of our bedtime routine.  As much as I have enjoyed the prayer I thought it was time for a prayer that was better suited to pray together.  Hopefully this will encourage you to implement prayer into your bedtime routine.

Our Father in Heaven, we pause at the end of this day to say thank You.  We give You thanks for the blessing of life, for the blessing of each other, for the blessing of family, and for the blessing of a home. You have richly blessed our lives. Restore us Father to Your Son Jesus.  He is the vine and we are the branches and He has become our source of life.  Open our hearts to receive the Holy Spirit's guidance, healing, and transformation.  May our lives and our marriage bear the fruit of the Spirit.  We surrender our lives and our marriage to You.  You have our bodies, possessions, and spirits; we give You our hearts, souls, minds, and strength.  We belon…

God Uses Unlikely People

One of the things that strike me about God is that the value society has given to people makes no difference to Him. In fact it seems that God would rather use the common, even the despised, people of the world to make a difference in this world. Consider Moses. God doesn’t use Moses when he is a prince of Egypt, but when he is a nomadic shepherd. Certainly God has used the rich and the powerful, but more often than not God has used the poor, sinful, and abused. God uses the unlikeliest people.

This reality comes our loud and clear at Christmas time. Think about the major characters of the Christmas story: Joseph who is a poor and scandalize carpenter, Mary who is a young and scandalized girl, Shepherds who are a bunch of untrustworthy characters. Only the Magi have credibility in society, but this diminishes in Jewish culture since these men were Gentiles. The most important event in the history of the world and God chooses people who are rejected and wouldn’t be believed by so…

Worship is a Lifestyle

"It's a lot easier to sing a song than it is to stop and touch the broken. It's a lot less taxing to go to church than to take 'church' to the world. But sharing with others is a sacrifice of worship that makes God smile." ~ Louie Giglio; The Air I Breathe

Worship isn't just about music. Worship isn't just an activity that is planned and programmed. Worship is about glorifying God with our lives. When we seek to honor God, we worship Him.

Worship happens anytime and anyplace. It happens Sunday mornings at church. It happens Wednesday night at Bible Study. It happens when we chat with our neighbor. It happens when we serve those in need. It happens when we show love to the lonely. Worship is what being a Christian is all about.

Worship is a life lived in response to God's gracious blessings. God has given us so much. We owe Him every breath we breathe. He is responsible for our talents we use. God has given us blessing after blessing. Only a life o…
