From Kathy’s heart to yours
In one of Sarah Young’s devotionals, she makes a statement that caught my eye: “Regardless of how old you are, you are always young in My Presence!”
Have you ever thought that, as one of God’s children, He sees you “forever young?”
I recently saw a Windex commercial whose catch phrase was “Light is Life.” It caused me to think about the difference between light and darkness. The definition of darkness is the absence of light--wickedness, evil, unhappiness, distress, gloom, and secrecy. Light, however, is quite the opposite. Light stimulates sight and makes things visible. Light illuminates. Light shines through truth.
Oh, God, help me fix my eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of my faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, has sat down at the right hand of your throne, O God.
Who is your favorite author? I have several who God has used in my life and several who take me to places or times I wish I could go.
I love treasure hunting, whether it’s going to the antique mall with my husband or grandkids, the thrift store or a garage sale. A treasure can take on many shapes, sizes, and forms. It can be very old or brand new. It might be something that was given to you by a friend, family member, or even God. Treasuries remind us of times past and the people who gave them to us pictures my grandkids have drawn or painted, a teacup that invokes a memory of a special day with friends, a photograph that makes me laugh or smile, a rose that takes my breath away and takes me to the very presence of God!
Matt. 26:36-46 and Luke 22:41-44
As I am sitting in my quiet place watching it lightly snow, I find the Lord speaking to me about the word “separation.” It is hard being separated from my family, friends, church family, the sweet lady at Wal-Mart that I enjoy talking to or just the face-to-face contact with people I so miss! On Saturday, preparing for Easter service, a precious gal whom I usually hug looked at me from a distance and said “air hug.”
As I was praying about what the Lord would have me share today, the word “faith” kept appearing on my radar. That word is at the very core of Who God is.
Remember having to go to the doctor for vaccinations? Was it something you looked forward to? Of course not. Then why do it? To protect our very lives.
