A Plan to Become More Like Jesus

 

I’ll get right to the point. People need a great modern-day plan with options and action steps to build a solid Christian framework that helps manage their life. Believers need to make their faith practical. You need some directives that help you “work out your salvation.” (Phil. 2:12)

God Is Interested In You

What you think or believe about God matters. Keep in mind, however, that what you think is a very small piece of the great big picture. You are not able to see the whole thing, let alone process it and make judgments about it. So, it is also true that you do not always operate with a complete perspective of reality. With these limitations, how can you fully live your life in God’s love and blessing?

Safe With God

“One of the first things you do when you walk into a room is turn on the light. That helps you see everything in the room, prevents falls and bumps, and helps you find your way. It gives familiarity to you in your environment and makes you feel welcome to the room.

It’s easy to turn a light on in a room. Why is it such a challenge to turn on the light in your thoughts and in your soul?

Billy Graham – Living Still

I am devoting this week’s blog to an amazing servant of God. I celebrate the life and message of Billy Graham. His “home-going” to Heaven is a world event. It is turning heads. For some, it’s another fond look at the amazing impact God has had around the globe through this man. For others, it’s a first look.

He Loves Perfectly

I’ve been thinking about Jesus’ age when He completed His life on earth. He died at only 33! That’s just not very old! At a youthful age, Jesus handled Himself with exceeding wisdom. He understood deep, hidden things of God. Jesus knew Himself and was comfortable in His own skin. He was the only young man who lived with unmatched excellence. No sin. Just love. To this day, He still loves perfectly!

At 33, I was still figuring out who I am. Somewhat naïve. Inexperienced. I didn’t understand a lot about life. I’m older with different perspectives and conclusions, yet there is still so much I don’t know. Life is filled with things that can’t be explained or neatly packed away. I think I’m making less mistakes than when I was 33. But that’s just it! I was making mistakes. To this day, I still do.

Your One Good Option

I’m guessing you’ve had at least one time in your life when you felt your relationship with God was good. Maybe. Some have had several seasons. Yet, like seasons of the year, they keep changing. Your relationship with God shifts.

Some Questions:

What causes these shifts? Why the change? Who cuts in on your successes? Your peace. Freedom. Growth. What pushes you to your edge? Causes you to fall? And why do you go there?

Life: Life has rhythms. Ebb and flow. Continual change. Basic principles stay the same, but the message everywhere is – “change it up!” What you grew accustomed to has been switched out. Life is constantly pulsating. Whether it’s people, business, agriculture, medicine, ministry, science. It’s never quite the same each day. Some people find that adventurous. Others, threatening.

Why I Do What I Do With Intentional Living

Today I was reminded why I do what I do with Intentional Living.

My life is super full! Lots of responsibilities – like your life. People depend on me to do my bit – like people depend on you. I have some wonderful experiences and memories – I’m sure you have some. And I have my share of extremely hard times. Challenges, losses, hurts. I bet you’ve had your share, as well.

It’s Real, And It’s Very Near

Pushing back the curtain, my eyes struggled to focus in the flood of brightness. Gradually adjusting, I saw a story book scene covered in a blanket of freeze. It was breath-taking. Very still. Untouched. No snow falling. Just morning moments frozen in time.

A misty steam lifted from objects as the sun brushed across them. Trees wore perfect-fitting ice gloves. Every tiny twig was transparently encased. Long, slender pine needles were hugged by individual translucent sleeves. Everything hung in united beauty and silence.
