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…

Trust by Jeff Carnie

swimA young lady was sunbathing on the beach when a little boy in his swimming trunks, carrying a towel, came up to her and asked her, “Do you believe in God?”

She was surprised by the question but she replied, “Why, yes, I do.”

Then he asked her: “Do you go to church every Sunday?”

Again, her answer was “Yes!” He then asked: “Do you read your Bible and pray every day?” Again she said, “Yes!” By now her curiosity was very much aroused. The little lad sighed with relief and said, “Will you hold my money while I go swimming?”

Be Blessed!

SEEING THE HEART by Jeff Carnie

hearts

When everyone starts filing into work today what if you could just see the inward appearance? You would not see who is the nicest dressed or nicest looking. All you would see would be the same spirit of everyone BUT in that spirit you would see their heart. Their heart would either be filled with love and light or be filled with hatred and darkness. They would be filled with light and joy or you could see that their hearts are heavy. When you can only see the heart of a person you would see them in a much different light. You would not judge based on outward appearance any longer. Fortunately for us God only looks at our heart.

But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

1 Samuel 16:7

Be BLESSED!!

TRUST HIS HEART by Jeff Carnie

heart

Babbie Mason wrote these words, “God is too wise to be mistaken. God is too good to be unkind. When you don’t understand and can’t see His plan, when you can’t trace His hand, TRUST HIS HEART.”

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;  in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

 PROVERBS 3: 5-6 

Be BLESSED!!

They Died in the Service by Jeff Carnie

country_church_giTHEY DIED IN THE SERVICE

One Sunday morning the pastor noticed little Alex was staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. The plaque was covered with names, and small American flags were mounted on either side of it.

The seven-year-old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the boy, and said quietly, “Good morning Alex.”

“Good morning pastor,” replied the young man, still focused on the
plaque. “Pastor McGhee, what is this?”

“Well, son, it’s a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.”

Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque. Little Alex’s voice was barely audible when he asked, “Which service, the 9:00 or the 11:00?”

Be Blessed and be a blessing!

Paid in Full by Jeff Carnie

1547-paid-cb-sm_grande (1)

Can you see whats in this picture? A receipt. And what purpose does a receipt serve? It is the proof that the payment has been made. That’s what Jesus’ resurrection is. The receipt. The proof that the payment is made, that death and sin no longer have power over us.  Have a happy Resurrection Day! And be blessed!

A Christmas Package by Jeff Carnie

Christmas Presents

Jeff Calendar’s three year old daugh-
ter along with the rest of her family
was observed opening Christmas packages.
As is often the case, Jeff’s wife had
recycled some bows from previous times,
and their daughter grabbed one and them
placed it on top of her head. The old
tape left on it caused it to stick to
her hair. That sight caused everyone to
begin laughing which excited her. In
the midst of their laughter, she cried,
“Look, I’m a present!” [And, in the
end, aren’t we all? On the otherhand,
are we ’a present’ worth keeping and
using in the Kingdom of God?]

MERRY CHRISTMAS and BE BLESSED
