TRUST IN HIM

 Man:    God, can I ask you a question?hand-of-god - Copy

God:    Sure.
Man:    
Promise you won’t get mad…
God:    
I promise.
Man:    
Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
God:    
What do you mean?
Man:    
Well, I woke up late.
God:    
Yes.
Man:    
My car took forever to start.
God:    
Okay.
Man:    
At lunch they made my sandwich wrong  and I had to wait.
God:    
Hmmm.
Man:    
On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.
God:    
All right.

Man:    And on top of it all, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager and  relax.  BUT it wouldn’t work!!!  Nothing went right today!  Why did you do that?

God:    Let me see… the death angel was at your bed this morning and I had to send one of my angels to battle him for your life.  I let you sleep through that.

Man:    (humbled): Oh.

GOD:   I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you   if you were on the road.


Man:    
(ashamed)
God:    
The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn’t want you to catch what  he has.  I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.


Man:
    (embarrassed) Okay.
God:    
Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call.  I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.


Man:
    (softly)  I see, God.
God:    
Oh, and that foot massager had a short that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight.  I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.


Man:    
I’m, sorry, God.
God:    
Don’t be sorry; just learn to trust Me… in all things, the good and the bad.
Man:    
I will trust you.
God:    
And don’t doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Man:    
I won’t, God.  And let me just tell you, God, thank You for everything today.
God:    
You’re welcome, child.  It was just another day being your God and looking after my children…

Who is Going to Win in the End?

Copy of san-diego-dog-bite-attorney

An old American Indian tale recounts the story of a chief who was telling a gathering of young braves about the struggle within. “It is like two dogs fighting inside of us,”the chief told them.

“There is one good dog who wants to do the right and the other dog always wants to do the wrong. Sometimes the good dog seems stronger and is winning the fight. But sometimes the bad dog is stronger and wrong is winning the fight.”

“Who is going to win in the end?” a young brave asks.

The chief answered “The one you feed.”

Don’t give into sin by feeding it! Be Blessed

LET’S CELEBRATE!!

There is an energy that accompanies each New Year that creates the thrill of new beginnings. The gyms are full, new faces are spotted in the pews at church, Copy of imagesand commitments which are likely to be broken are made. Here is my challenge to each of you this New Year, “whatever you do, strive to do it to the fullest, be sold out for Jesus and fully committed! Be bold and strong in the Lord! Don’t look back, walk in faith and to your victory!

This is my soul’s desire as I lead the 9:30 service at FBCEG, I intend to put the pedal to the metal. I often say, “so much to do, and so little time to do it!” I plan to live this next year as if it’s my last.  With that being said, I vow to submit myself to be the vessel that God uses to unlock the doors to heaven with worship and praise!  Will you join me?

Will you allow God’s spirit to manifest itself in your life?  Will you share His message of truth, hope, love, and forgiveness?  Believe me when I say, it will be challenging to keep this “resolution” to give our absolute best, but I know in God we can do all things!  So let’s grow the kingdom, let’s grow the church, and let’s be vessels used to change lives! Together, let’s “celebrate” what God will do this coming New Year! I truly believe this is a commitment/resolution we can keep.

A Father And His Children: The Weekly Blog by Jeff Carnie

A Father And His Children:

The story is told of a father of five who came home with a toy, he summoned his children and ask which one should be given the present. “WHO IS THE MOST OBEDIENT, NEVER TALKS BACK TO MOM AND DOES EVERY THING HE OR SHE IS TOLD TO DO?” He inquired. There was a silence, and then a chorus of voices: “YOU PLAY WITH IT DADDY!”  Sorry men!! Happy Fathers Day 🙂
