Visiting The Shack

If you have not seen the movie The Shack I highly recommend watching it. I read the book when it came out but wasn’t sure the movie would do it justice. It did—at least as I remember the book. It certainly delivered the main messages in the book.

We all have out own “shacks.” They are dark places —some way darker than others—that eat away at us and stand in the way of moving forward with life. We need to face those “shacks” and not avoid them. And in doing so we need to look inward and not outwards at others—and judging in the process.

I haven’t written in a while because I was stuck. Watching The Shack helped me out of the rut. It helps put into perspective what is really important in life—the one and only most important thing in life.

Have a GREAT day!!!

Every Day is a New Day in Christ

No—not more “religious” mumbo-jumbo. Very simply, in a very real way, Jesus was humbly born, lived even more humbly, and in the ultimate act humbly died a terrible death. Why? Simply so your sins—yes, you!—would be forgiven. No matter what you do wrong, acknowledge your faults, give in to Jesus, and you are forgiven. A new day!

Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit. 1 Peter‬ ‭3:18‬

Get rid of yesterday and start a new day in Christ. And have a GREAT one!

You’ve Got a Friend

A few weeks ago I went to a James Taylor concert. I can tell you he still has it at age 67. He sang songs from his new album but belted out all the old ones like “You’ve Got a Friend.” As he was singing that one it made me think that we always have a friend a heartbeat away that we can call on anytime, anywhere. That friend is God. Continue reading

No Bad Days With God!

We all have good days and bad days. Our emotions ebb and flow. However, if you stay close to God, or move back to Him when you may have strayed, there are simply no bad days. If you let God really shine in your life any clouds in your life will part. Don’t believe me? Simply try this. Continue reading
