A Morning Thought On Fear

It is true that fear causes us to become hyper-focused on the thing we are afraid of. Most fears cause us to think on the thing we fear and the more we think about that thing the stronger our sense of torment becomes.

The fear of the Lord, however, is different. Fearing God will cause us to become hyper-focused on God. We will find our thoughts becoming consumed with God when once we fear Him. However, the more we think about God and focus on Him the more peaceful we become. Torment ends and rest commences!

“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you.” Isa. 26:3img_20160202_073953.jpg

Thankful Thursdays 2-25-16

It is Thankful Thursday here at Lillie-Put. What do you thank God for? Write your own post and share with us here or link your favorite worship song to this site. Anything to build a culture of worship!

I am so thankful for the privilege of serving God in a church that is alive with the power of God. I am thankful for my Pastor, Barry Risto, who does so much to move our congregation into the plan of God.

I am thankful for my fellow staff members Pastor Brad Hackett and Pastor Donna Slocum who work with me and Pastor Risto in the ministry of the gospel. There is nothing better than a good team!

Sometimes it’s not the miracles that mean the most but the everyday blessings that we come to rely on.

Share Your World 2016 Week#8

share-your-world2

It is time to SHARE MY WORLD WITH YOU AGAIN. That capitalized link will get you into a whole world of learning how to share your world and a ton of examples about how to do it from Cee’s many subscribers. But before you go, here are the weekly questions from Cee and my shares concerning them.

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?

I am decidedly not a big fan of raking or weeding the garden beds. I am OK if my lawn and gardens will not make the next issue of Better Homes and Gardens.

What was the last URL that you bookmarked?

You Tube Buffalo Herd: Our Riches At Christ’s Expense

 

Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?

My neck and my shoulders are telling me, “You need a neck massage.”

Would you rather have a two-bedroom apartment in a big city of your choosing or a mansion in the country side in the state or country where you currently live?

Can the mansion be a three bedroom log cabin in the countryside? If so I’ll take that.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for a wonderful team of church staff, and visiting lay ministers who helped with the incredible amount of ministry our church did last week.

This week I am looking forward to visiting with my daughter Melanie and her husband James who are up in Winchendon with me for their vacation.

 

Midafternoon Meditation 2-24-16

100_5254

Yesterday the morning Scripture I was sent to was from Psalm 46:10.

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

Here are some more thoughts from that time of meditation on being still.

 

The voice of God says, “Be still and know that I am God. Let My heart overcome your heart.

Do not try to still your own emotions.Neither base your life in how you feel. Instead let My heart overcome your heart by just focusing on Me.

A wind is coming that will blow and scatter emotions. Those who try to stand in their feelings will be blown away like the chaff. Those who anchor to ME will not be moved. Their emotions will not move.

Be still. This move of God is not about the stirring of emotions but about the stirring of the spirit.”
