Teens Blog SF51 Who’s Driving Who?

Who's Driving Who - ptl2010

This past week my 17-year-old has been practicing her driving since she got her permit a few weeks ago. Since I am no longer in the driver’s seat, that means being a passenger and letting someone else lead the way.

As a passenger, there were some things I had noticed and needed to correct as she was driving. Here are some things we went over. Continue reading

Nuggets – I Will Ever Be True

I Will Ever Be True
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2)

The concluding verse of our song, “The Old Rugged Cross,” contains a commitment to follow Christ in this life and looks forward to life with Him in eternity.

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true,
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He’ll call me some day to my home far away,
Where His glory forever I’ll share.

Bible Daily Devotional – Paslam 119 Part 2 – The Power of God’s Word

The Power of God’s word: Psalm 119, part 2

6777742056_3e2bf7b005_z (2)

Today’s reading: Psalm 119:89-176.

You could call this chapter the ABC’s of the law, since in the Hebrew text the letters of the Hebrew alphabet were used in order to begin each stanza of lines. That is lost in translation, but the lessons on the law’s value remain.

Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me. I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes. Psalm 119:98-99

BABYLON

BABYLON

Delight of parents in a baby

Hope for wonderful things as their child matures

Then, suddenly, a “Mystery Babylon” unfolds

Destined for greatness

A nation becomes a home for demons,

Once a great nation on Earth

Yet, fallen so far

Tears have been shed until the eyes run dry

Sorrow over the darkness crushing all good

America, a nation filled by evil spirits

“A haunt for every unclean bird”.

Light was sown like seed

Now trampled beneath callused feet

And crushed by the heels of cold brutality,

The wicked driven to snuff out all godliness;

A country of eternal hope defiled

Ruined from within

Ruined from without

And the worst yet to come.

For the many stars who shine in this present darkness

Brightness of the remnant few

The “Word made flesh” stands True

Greatest authority, most powerful One above all,

Our new day is as a dawning Light

Shining brighter and brighter

His song of salvation within

The pilgrimage of our heart.

Free, Free Indeed! (Independence Day – July 4th Devotional)

SIH STSTA ICONWe, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”

http://www.earlyamerica.com/earlyamerica/freedom/doi/text.html

These famous words make up the concluding paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, the document that declared our freedom from the British Kingdom.  As a country based upon freedom and civil rights we have been blessed greatly by God.  And although these freedoms are not permanent in nature (it seems as if some of these freedoms may be slipping through our fingers); I can easily declare that the United States of America is still the greatest and most blessed country in the world.

It is a privilege to live here. The saddest part of our celebration of our Independence is that we have forgotten to thank our Lord for the freedom He has given to us!  If you notice, in the very same paragraph that declares our freedoms, the founding fathers declared the source of their strength as they stood in opposition to the British government…. “, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence”.  That’s right!  Our founding fathers made it plain that they had the courage to stand up and declare our freedom from Britain because they were trusting in the providence of Almighty God to protect them.

HOW LONG, O LORD?

by Karen Woodall

I’ve been waiting for what seems like a very long time. With little discernible evidence of God’s activity, the clock ticks relentless forward turning days into weeks, and weeks into months. I know enough to realize that the Lord moves according to His own timetables and that my inability to recognize His activity doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. Yet, the same questions drift through my mind… Is God really working?  When will His plan unfold?  It’s striking how much my internal musings mirror the words of Psalm 13.  Verse 1 sounds so much like some of my prayers…

“How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?

I love that the Bible is so honest. Instead of always presenting an overly rosy picture of a life of faith, many of the people in Bible stories grappled with the same issues that we all have. Even God’s most faith-filled servants often struggled to overcome familiar hesitations and questions. I can relate well to those emotions, but I’m also grateful that they didn’t leave us to drown in our uncertainties when things don’t go according to our schedule. If we look a little more deeply, the Psalms do more than just echo our inner anxieties. If we apply their truths, they can help us move beyond dwelling on our doubt-inducing questions. While we may not be delivered from our situation in the time or way we want, these writers’ affirmations help us lean on God to give us sure footing during our seasons of discontent.

Mission Trips – The best one for you

This is our fourth blog on Mission Trips on ChristianBlessings. It is our challenge to our challenge to followers of Christ to be involved in missions which is in direct obedience to His Great Commission to go into all the world and preach the gospel.

We may not be called to full time missionary service to foreign lands and short mission trips could be a foretaste of what it means to be called full-time to go for God. In the last three blogs on this subject we have covered 5 reasons why we should go on mission trips, what are the global opportunities, what factors to consider to choose the right mission organization to go with and today we suggest how to find the best one for you.

Read this article and you cannot go without praying for the Lord’s leading to know His heart, His will for you and His plan for you.

Remember, you need to pray, prepare and present yourself for the Lord to use you.
