When You feel Out of Control

When You feel Out of Control

Last week I was worried about Michelle, my wife. She was in Orlando, Florida with Hurricane Erma targeting her and about 800 to a thousand people in the music and Radio Industry.

I know I needed to Trust God with her wellbeing. I found out for the first time in my life, my loved one was out of reach, not safe. I couldn’t help her. She was totally in God hands.

It’s easy to say you’re going to do trust God, but saying it and living it are two different things. At one point, I literally felt helpless.

Have you ever felt like you were in a similar situation? Circumstances dictated where you were and did not allow you to help or be in control.

Maybe you’ve had a similar experience, where circumstances made you feel out of control. Call, or go on line at kswp.org/prayer or kswp.org/praise and share you Story and the outcome.

God is always so good to me! As I sought His Word, He filled me with a peace… it passed all human understanding. There was no earthly reason for me to calm down, yet, I did.

He gave me this, “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 (NIV)

Michelle flew home safe the next day (Saturday)!

Love One Another

Love One Another

This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you.” ~ John 15:12

This verse in the Gospel of John tells us a lot about revealing God`s love for each other. It means we will give yourselves up for one another.

If you’ve ever seen one of your best friends in need, you understand what this verse is about. When you go out of your way to meet a friend’s need, when we are willing to spend time, resources and energy with someone and when you “just do what’s needed because you know what your friend needs, without asking… Yes. You’re a friend!

You are willing to go out of our way and to give ourselves up for others, even lay down our life, a part of it at least, for that person.

This is what Jesus had in mind. With living for a friend requires us to be committed to that friend. Even, in Jesus case, paying the ultimate sacrifice.

Three Things Last Forever

Three Things Last Forever

Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” ~ Mark 12:30

Love Is…

Love Is…

Love Isn’t A Billion Little Things

But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.  Luke 6:35
