Fruit for Breakfast

Sometimes God miraculously heals us. Other times he empowers us with wisdom and self control. So don’t pray for God to take your Honey Bun, Snickers Bar, or bag of Doritos and make it “nourishing” for your body. Pray for the self control to not pick up those choices in the first place… That is the miracle you need.

(Preaching to myself this morning…)

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, SELF-CONTROL…” – Galatians 5:22-23

Google is Not God

Google gives you possibilities. God’s Word gives you certainties.

Be Thankful

Thankfulness is powerful. Peace and joy ride on its wings.

Today consider all the things in your life that you should be thankful for. Consider the things you don’t have. Are you healthy? Others are battling sickness. Did you have food to eat for breakfast? Others did not. Did you have a hard time deciding what to wear today? For some there is no decision. Did you have a bad hair day? Some have no hair, their therapy has caused it to all fall out. Did you lock the door of your home on your way to work? Some have no home nor job to go to. Did you get in a car to continue your travels? Some have no car. Did you kiss your spouse and kids in the morning? Some have no spouse or kids. Meeting a friend for lunch? Some have no friends… And what else can you be thankful for?

Consider all that you have and be thankful, truly thankful.
