Be a Believer

Are you a doubting Thomas?

After Jesus was resurrected, he appeared to some of His disciples. Thomas, though, had not been there. The disciples told Thomas that they had seen the Lord and that He had risen from the dead. He informed them that "Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe." Thomas not only wanted to see in order to believe, but He wanted to FEEL as well.

How many of us are that way? It's "natural" to be this way. We are such "senses" people. We want to see and feel and touch. God made us to have senses and emotions. But, he doesn't want them to rule over us. Truth is more important than feelings or senses. Rely on truth to guide you...not what you feel or sense (or don't sense, for that matter.) Be a believer! Believe the truth of the Word.

Go ahead and take from Him!

The Ways of Grace by Joseph Prince

He invites us to take from Him and continues to reveal His grace to us in
many different ways. I'm so thankful for Him.

Restoration...I love the way God does things.

I watched this clip from CBN today [link below] and it got me thinking about the word Restoration.  God is in the business of restoration. He delights in it because He gets the glory and honor for transforming a life, but also because He loves His creation so much that He wants them to live an abundant life and not a life of addiction, depravity, and hopelessness.

No matter what you are facing or going through today, know that God loves you! He DOES have good plans for your life. He wants to bring restoration to you and your family. He loves the family and He loves healthy relationships. He sent Jesus for your restoration. [God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself.]

If you look up the word Restoration, you'll see the word Renew. He wants to make you NEW! If you are already born-again, just submit yourself to Him, give Him all your junk, get in the Word, ask Him and He will restore your life. If you need to be born-again, it's a simple process...Just say, "Jesus, I need you. Come in and make me new. I can't do this on my own. Thank you Jesus for loving me and bringing me into your family."

Hey, I have good news for you today...according to, you can enjoy the upcoming holidays "stress-free"...and I quote: (with a hint of sarcasm)

"From furniture to our favorite ways to deck the halls, celebrate the holidays totally stress-free."

Now, mind you, I have nothing against Wayfair or their products, but that is quite a claim! Seems just a bit unrealistic to me. How about you? We all know that the holidays bring out the best and the worst in people (and yes that includes every family).

I think for most of us (especially women) we go into the holiday season wanting everything to be perfect; the gifts, the decor, the food, etc. Talk about a set-up for disappointment! Ladies, I just want to say up front, "It will not be perfect." Things will go wrong, here or there.

I don't think there is such a thing as "stress-free." Maybe in death. :) Just enjoy the holidays...try not to have unrealistic expectations. Enjoy your family and friends. Enjoy, yes, even enjoy the fact that nobody is perfect, except Jesus. Be conscious of Him in your celebrations this season, and the stress level will decrease measurably.

Stress-free? Still a doubting Thomas.
