Sky-Writing about God's Love

Last Friday as I stepped out of my car, I looked up and saw a plane starting to write a word in the sky.  How neat!  I wondered what the pilot would write.  Slowly, the plane spelled out the word, “LOVE.”  I kept watching as the pilot spelled out “GOD.”  Wow!  I was impressed by the huge expression of emotion scrawled across the sky; “LOVE GOD.”   As we go about our daily lives many of us try to live each moment truly expressing our love for God, but rarely do we see such an overt expression of feelings.  As I kept thinking about the sky-writing, the following verse popped into my mind; Deuteronomy 6:5 (NIV) Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. Is this the message the sky-writer wanted me to hear?  I felt challenged to step-it-up and really love God with even more tenacity!  Please join me in the challenge to focus in on loving the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, and strength.  Just think of the impact we will have on the greater Lansing area!

True Clarity Through Him!

Wow!  I am able to see much better!  Earlier today I could not find my reading glasses, and some of you know what that means; my arms weren’t long enough to hold the document were it could be easily read!  I never thought I would have to wear reading glasses.   I am not sure why I thought that, but I was wrong.  That’s a lot like Christians.  We should be having regular devotions and prayer time, but we think we are okay without taking time to converse with God.  We give ourselves all sorts of excuses, like not having time, we are too busy with the kids, and oh, the laundry!  First Corinthians 1:9 (NIV) says, God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.  Please join me in paying that as a school community, we would commit to having a closer fellowship with our Lord!

Nothing is Hidden from Him

As I was driving down a country road this morning, I noticed how much I was able to see without all of the leaves on the trees.  The tree trunks were very evident, starkly outlined in the morning light.  Now, I could see everything that was behind the trees; houses that are hidden by the leaves, and a lot of unsightly items which were left by the wayside.  It reminded me of our Christian life.  Sometimes we are able to hide items or actions from others, but God always sees through, as if there weren’t any leaves hiding our sins.  In Matthew 10:26, we read, …”for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.”   Join me today in prayer asking God to help us remember that nothing is hidden from Him.
