500 Posts

WOW! I can’t believe I have written 500 posts to date. I started this blog about 4 years ago now and I can’t believe how fast that time has passed. A lot has changed in my life since I first began writing here on WordPress.

I really enjoy sharing my life this way. I find it to be a great outlet for my thoughts, views and discoveries in my personal life.

My most important love in writing is my faith in Jesus. I began writing with the focus that my blog would be on my faith and my journey with Christ. I also like to share other aspects of my life, but for the most part it’s been my Christian views on life and how my walk has grown over the years.

I thoroughly enjoy blogging and posting and look forward to the next 500+

Thanks for sharing my life with me!

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever shall believe in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life – John 3:16

400 Posts and 23k views.  I am grateful for WordPress.com and helping mak my writing inspiration come true for me one day…  Thanks to all of you out there for sharing your thoughts and comments with me, as well as the lively discussions that occur. 

By far, the most hit Post I made, is my Christian Acronyms/Acrostics.  People love that one and it gets a lot of love across all the major search engines.  That Post has evolved into it’s own beautiful thoughts from everyone that has contributed to it. 

So, thanks and here’s to more writing, blogging, posting and commenting.

YOUR Ministry

FROM:  heartlight.org

Disciple Time

     As a result, Jesus stopped his public ministry among the

    people and left Jerusalem. He went to a place near the

    wilderness, to the village of Ephraim, and stayed there with

    his disciples. 

                             — John 11:54 (NLT)

 KEY THOUGHT:

In all four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), we learn that the last

part of Jesus’ ministry was specifically focused on teaching and

preparing his disciples. Many in the crowd turn away and the

determination of his opponents to kill him is growing. Jesus recognizes

that he has a short time to prepare his disciples for his “departure”

and the responsibilities they have to minister in his absence. Despite

Jesus’ example, many of us fail to share our vision and our ministries

with others who can carry them on after we are gone and help us take

advantage of the opportunities that God is giving us now. Let’s hear

from Jesus’ example the vital importance of sharing our visions,

dreams, and ministries with others while we still have time.

  

TODAY’S PRAYER:

Father of grace and mercy, thank you for giving me the abilities that I

have and the opportunities to use them for your glory and for the work

of your Kingdom. Open my eyes, dear Father, to those around me with

whom I can share the passion, understanding, and ministry opportunities

you have given me. In Jesus’ name I ask it. Amen.

friends

I just wanted to say to all of my friends out there, that I am grateful and thankful to every one of you.  Thanks for being my friend and sharing your life with me.  For me, without all of you, my life wouldn’t be anything close to what it is because of YOU!

Too many names to count or give shout outs to, but I wanted to say I LOVE ALL OF YOU!

Thanks for your support in the good times and the rough ones!  May God Bless each and every one of you with good health, financial freedom and love!

Your Friend Always, Sam.

in times of need

Am I my brother’s keeper?  Yes I am.  That should be our answer when we go out to serve or think about serving.  We should be in the field helping and giving and sharing. 

When asked that question…what is your answer?

who is right?

If I’m wrong then who is right?  If I’m right who is wrong?  In this article I just read, a Catholic Church has been vandalised, for the 3rd time.  They aren’t sure why or whom, but it does seem odd that the message left behind this last time stated “Don’t worship idols”  Now, we know in Exodus 20, that God gives Moses the Moral Law through the 10 Commandments(The Moral Law is still valid today BTW)  One of the 10 laws state to not worship idols.  Obviously, the person dismayed made his voice heard by vandalising a Catholic Church.  This is not right or OK by any means.  Just like I don’t believe in abortion because your killing/destroying a life, but that doesn’t give you the right to murder a doctor that performs the abortion or any of the people that work at any of these clinics. 

The answer is not revenge, because God says Revenge is mine, not yours.  I also like that the article states that “Schwieterman tells parishioners that Catholics don’t worship the statues and photos, but rely on them to remind them of the tenets of their faith.” 

The fact that a church has a cross or beautiful statues is not really what is in question in my opinion.  What should be the real question is what’s in your heart?  And I think that whoever committed this lawless crime doesn’t have his/her heart in the right place at all.  Moreover, it is probably an ex member of this Church that was upset with something that had happened at the Church and instead of making their voice known and heard by voicing it amicably, they took matters into their own hands and punished the Church in a very ugly and hurtful way. 

Let’s pray for those who are hurt and have a hard time sharing that hurt with others.
