19 Days To Live, May 15



I am almost at the mid-way point of one month to live. I haven't yet accomplished everything that I would like to with this series from a personal basis. One of the things that I'm working on is celebrating my friends and family more. Last night I spent the evening with a close friend who was in from out of town. It was great to catch up and encourage one another in our spiritual journey. I still want to grow closer to my family and especially to God. I am enjoying my time with God but I want to keep going deeper. The verses for the last 2 days scheduled reading have been...

Ephesians 4:26-27, "In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27and do not give the devil a foothold.
Romans 15:7, Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.


These verses are so powerful. They seem simple and reasonable, but through life experience I know that they are very difficult to live out. Sometimes I get angry and give the devil my foot, leg, upper torso... The foothold generally affects my attitude. My attitude towards Gods authority in my life. Other times I don't accept people for different reasons or excuses. I want to live these scriptures out today. I want to be someone that works through anger and someone that is accepting of others, even if I don't agree with their lifestyle. As a Christ-follower, I am not called to stand in judgement of others. That's God's job. I am called to be a light in a very dark world. Who do you need to forgive today? Who do you need to 'accept' that isn't like you? Start today, tomorrow is not promised.

Great devotional, "Exceedingly Abundantly"

Today I read a great devotional from Joel Osteen Ministries that I thought would be an encouragement to you. To often we settle for mediocrity & second best in our lives. Many times I trust God for so little when He really wants to bless me big! I want to challenge you today to remember that God can do more in & through your life than what your currently believing for! Take a step & believe big today! TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever" (Ephesians 3:20-21, NKJ) TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria God wants to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ever ask, think, or imagine. In another place, it says that no person has ever seen, heard, or even imagined the wonderful things that God has in store for those who love the Lord. But notice that it's acco

In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
