Encouraging Word: God Will Carry

footprintsI would imagine each and every one of us has a soul that could use a little more rest. Consider the things you take responsibility for, and if you think your impact on them is just as vital as God’s. Chances are, they are not even close. There are a few weighty things you can turn over to Him. After all He’s God and you are … not. Whether you’re trying to be or not, rest in knowing that His yoke has your best interest at heart, and He doesn’t intend for you to carry unnecessary burdens. God will carry the load for you! (

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:29

Money and Happiness

img_1495If this passage describes you, consider doing as the Lord challenged Israel, through the prophet Haggai, to rebuild His house instead of investing in their own wants and needs. (

You have sown much, and harvested little. You eat, but you never have enough; you drink but you never have your fill. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm. And he who earns wages does so to put them into a bag with holes. “Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways.” Haggai 1:6,7

Michelle writes, When I read this passage I see that God was challenging their ungratefulness and the lack of satisfaction gained by material items. AKA… Money can’t by happiness.

Help Others, What is in Your Heart, Storm Safety, Plan NOT to Fail

Power Thoughts

  • “You can have everything in life you want if you’ll just help enough other people get what they want.” – Zig Ziglar
  • “The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time.” – Abraham Lincoln
  • “You don’t get to choose how you’re going to die, only how you’re going to live.” – Joan Baez

What’s In Your Heart

“But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.”” -1 Samuel 16:7

What’s on the inside is the wheelhouse of your character, not what’s on the outside. Steward what’s inside first, and let the rest of your life stream from that.

Stay safe in the Storm: What to Do During a Tornado
Although today’s going to be a beautIful day, Al is in Nashville and they have been under Tornado watches for the last three days, with Tornados possible here in our future I thought let’s be safe. If you are under a tornado WARNING, seek shelter immediately!
If you are in:

  1. A structure go to a pre-designated shelter area such as a safe room, basement, storm cellar, or the lowest building level. If there is no basement, go to the center of an interior room on the lowest level (closet, interior hallway) away from corners, windows, doors, and outside walls. Put as many walls as possible between you and the outside. Get under a sturdy table and use your arms to protect your head and neck. Do not open windows.
  2. A vehicle, trailer, or mobile home- Get out immediately and go to the lowest floor of a sturdy, nearby building or a storm shelter. Mobile homes, even if tied down, offer little protection from tornadoes.
  3. The outside with no shelter- Lie flat in a nearby ditch or depression and cover your head with your hands. Be aware of the potential for flooding.  Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You are safer in a low, flat location.
  4. Never try to outrun a tornado in urban or congested areas in a car or truck. Instead, leave the vehicle immediately for safe shelter.
  5. Watch out for flying debris. Flying debris from tornadoes causes most fatalities and injuries
