Sunday Verses

Happy Sunday! The line "My chains are gone, I have been set free" from Amazing Grace has been going through my head lately. How often do we (ME!) live our lives like we are still in chains and as if Christ did nothing for us on the cross? We forget his grace and sacrifice that save us, and instead choose to walk around shackled to our past mistakes, weighted down with our problems and shortcomings. We live with shame and guilt rather than freedom and forgiveness. Let's break the chains to those hardships and battles that keep us from fully experiencing Jesus's unconditional love. Today, give it to God, let it go, and know God's peace.

Delightful Dresser

When a friend asked me if I wanted to buy some project dressers (four total) that she had not been able to get to, I jumped on it.  Good, decent dressers are becoming harder and harder to find.

Sunday Verses

Happy Sunday! On vacation this summer, we walked through a forested area near my aunt's home in Portland. I loved all the green, especially the ivy growing up many of the trees. But, while it looked lovely, I learned that it is horrible for the trees and will eventually kill them. The ivy made me think about those things in life that "look pretty" and seem good, but really aren't. Daily, we are bombarded with things that appear great, but they are actually harmful. Thankfully, God gives us discernment to guide our decisions and choices. The more time we spend with Jesus in prayer and reading his Word, the easier it becomes to discern the good from the bad. This week, let's try to seek God more and listen to the Holy Spirit so that we make decisions that honor Him.

Sunday Verses

Happy Sunday! This fall I have seen a picture of fall leaves that says, "Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let go."  It reminded me of this verse from Isaiah.  Folks, we love to hang onto to all kinds of things that Jesus wants us to let go of--anger and resentment, guilt and shame, bad habits, unhealthy relationships--the list could go on and on.  The work Jesus did on the cross allows us to let go of the old things, to forget them, and to look forward to new and better things.  It is not easy to let go of the old and familiar, even if it is painful, because it is comfortable and what we know.  The new is unknown and can be scary.  But, I promise you, if you give it to Jesus, if you let it go, it will be beautiful and God will work something new and wonderful in your life.
