    One of the criminals who was hanged insulted him, saying, 'If you are the Christ, save yourself and us!' But the other answered, and rebuking him said, 'Don't you even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? Luke 23:39 WEBThree men were crucified together at a place called Golgotha. T...

    Our heart has not turned back, neither have our steps strayed from your path Psalms 44:18 WEBWhen you begin to dig too deep into the 'Thou shall' and 'Thou shall nots' of the Bible and begin to compare it to your own life, it will soon overwhelm you, and you may spiral into an attitude of defeat.

When He and the disciples crossed the Sea of Galilee on their fishing boat and a great storm came, Je...

Dust In The Wind

  • These all wait for you, that you may give them their food in due season. You give to them; they gather. You open your hand; they are satisfied with good. You hide your face; they are troubled. You take away their breath; they die and return to the dust. Psalms 104:27 WEB

    If you are reading this, then you are still breathing and God has not called His gift back to Him yet. To each of us there is a day appointed when we will give back to God the breath that He breathed into Adam so long ago, the very breath of life (Genesis 2:7). It was passed down to each of us, and when it is gone, we will return to the dust.

    I have stood by the bedside of dear loved ones as they took their last breath, and watched the people that I hoped would live forever, die. If you take a walk through a graveyard, it is sobering to see the dates on the tombstones. In a cemetery near my house, years ago a family buried their five children whom they lost to malaria. As soon as they would bury one, they would go home to find that another had passed.

    Live today ready to die so that you will have no regrets. You may question whether God loves you, but every breath that you take is another gift from God. It is another chance to make things right. When a murderer takes another breath, it is God's mercy. Will he repent before it is too late, or continue on the path of destruction? There is still time to right the wrongs and live the life that God created you for. 'While I breath, there is hope' is my home state of South Carolina's motto. Our lives are just a brief flash lived in the shadow of eternity, here today, gone tomorrow. They are like dust in the wind.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for giving me another day here. Help me to see the world through Your eyes and to live out the plans that You have for me to their fullest. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

 Lord I pray as I stumble through this life and world that I can do your will. Help me to know what your will is this day, to see you, get to see your face and to love those who are in my path. I give you this day. I  give you my thoughts,  my words my actions. Today I give you all of my emotions and ask you to help me with the hard ones. I give you the moments that my heart beats so fast and I have nauciousnes in my stomach because I may open an email that is hurtful and abusive. I ask you to help me respond with each word I type, each thought that I think and I give it all to you. In Jesus name.

A WONDERFUL DEVOTIONAL.  I USED TO BE VERY FRIGHTENED ABOUT LEAVING THIS LIFE BUT SINCE I HAVE COME TO KNOW OUR LORD, TO BE IN HIS PRESENCE IS LIFE.  NO, I DON'T WANT TO DIE, FROM AN ILLNESS OR ACCIDENT AND I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE FOR THE LORD PRAYING TO BE PLEASING TO HIM.  I JUST PRAY HE WILL USE ME TO FURTHER THE GOSPEL HOWEVER IS ACCORDING TO HIS PLAN FOR ME.  THANK YOU MY LORD JESUS FOR ANOTHER DAY TO HELP MAKE  THINGS RIGHT.

"Our lives are just a brief flash lived in the shadow of eternity, here today, gone tomorrow. They are like dust in the wind"  WE WILL ALWAYS PRAISE AND THANK YOU LORD GOD for the breath of life you give us everyday.  It is the first miracle and gift we receive from the LORD when HE WAKE US UP IN THE MORNING.
