Thought For The Day: What You Water Will Grow – Matthew 13

Thought For The Day: What You Water Will Grow – Matthew 13

Relationships, Thoughts
For the last two or three years I have tried my hand at gardening. While I admittedly am not very good at it. I like the idea of planting a seedling into the ground with the children and watching it change over time. Now another point of truth, I get far more excited about this than my children. Maybe if I were more successful they would be more enthusiastic. However here is the Golden Nugget that you each need to take away about life. WHAT YOU WATER WILL GROW SO BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY WHAT IS GROWING IN YOUR GARDEN. I have a few planters in my yard from years of attempts at gardening. This year my succulents are doing pretty good. However in the white planter where I try to plant some kind of vegetable there seems to be something that wants to sprout life. Now this planter has b...

“How to Lead” — WJD! for 10/28/2013

I get daily emails from various writers from Joseph Prince to Phil Ware and when there is something that I read that tugs at the good ole heart strings, I like to share it with you. Hope you all enjoy. Be Blessed, RiverAngel42 "The person that serves you like a servant is the greatest person among you. Every person that makes himself better than other people will be made humble. Every person that makes himself humble will be made great." — Matthew 23:11-12 (ERV) Key Thought: Humility is a greatly under-emphasized quality among humans. We don't know what it means. We don't know how to appreciate it. We don't know how to do it. And we're not all that sure we want to have it. Culturally we're much more drawn to the energetic, dynamic, charismatic, crowd-drawing leader. That's who gets

Thought for the Day – You Were Born to be You by Tom Norvell

I read this a few minutes ago and felt it was a great share. "You Were Born to be You!" — Daily Heartlight for 08/15/2013 Written by Tom Norvell Who am I? What was I created to be and to do? Why am I here? Do I have a purpose? Does God have a plan for my life? These are all questions we struggle with from time to time — questions some struggle with all the time. How about you? Ever wonder why you were placed on this earth? Does another year passing make you sad because it means you still do not know why you were born? Maybe the apostle Paul can offer us some help: For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of yo
What Jesus Did by Phil Ware  – Faith or Frustration

What Jesus Did by Phil Ware – Faith or Frustration

Bible Study, Jesus
"Faith or Frustration?" — WJD! for 08/14/2013 Jesus and the followers went back to the people. A man came to Jesus and bowed before him. The man said, "Lord, be kind to my son. He has epilepsy and is suffering very much. My son often falls into the fire or into the water. I brought my son to your followers, but they could not heal him." Jesus answered, "You people have no faith. Your lives are all wrong. How long must I stay with you? How long must I continue to be patient with you? Bring the boy here." Jesus gave a strong command to the demon inside the boy. Then the demon came out of the boy, and the boy was healed. — Matthew 17:14-18 (ERV) Key Thought: Why had Jesus' closest followers not been able to heal the boy? Matthew 17:19 says that it was because they did not have enough fai

Pastor Joseph Prince – Daily Inspriations “God Gives You Undeserved Preferential Treatment”

Pastor Joseph Prince
Romans 1:7 7… Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. When you fly first class in an airplane, the cabin crew gives you first-class treatment. They ask you, “Is everything okay with you, sir?” They ask you what magazines you want to read. They give you a blanket if you are cold. They give you the best kinds of food. They give you preferential treatment compared to those traveling in economy class. The grace of God is defined as “undeserved, unearned and unmerited favor”. And one of the definitions for favor is “preferential treatment”! Today, God wants you to know that you have His favor on you. He wants you to know that He gives you preferential treatment which you do not deserve. And He wants you to depend on and take full advantage of it in your life.

Thought for the Day: Let Your Yes Be Yes

RiverAngel42, Thoughts
There are many times when talking with another person we tell them, "Yes we will do..." and times when we say "No, we will not do...". However, how many times do you find yourself reneging on your word? Sometimes we do it unintentionally yet other times we make it point to do exactly the opposite of what we have agreed. We try to justify it by saying well this person told me x,y and z and did the opposite so I am getting them back. That might be well and good but you should also be aware that not only are you telling a lie but that you are also going against God's word. The Bible states in James 5:12 12Above all, my brothers, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your “Yes” be yes, and your “No,” no, or you will be condemned. When you enter into an agreement

Thought For The Day: God On My Mind and Being Prepared

RiverAngel42, Thoughts
Last night I had an interesting rest. While I slept well, thoughts that I had that evening made their way into my dreams. Now I am a person who dreams often and feel that I have begun to be able to discern when my dreams are messages vs. thoughts that manifest themselves into dreams. These were thoughts into dreams. With that being said this morning when I woke I determined that I wasn't going to go back to bed. I got my coffee and sat at my computer to begin to search for information to post on Fellowship. I thought for a while about ideas I could write about and then my morning went in another direction. I opened up my Facebook page and Twitter account and began to post the following to friends and family: "Good Morning and God Bless. Have a beautiful day and when obstacles come to dist...

Thought for the Day: Your Destiny by Guest Writer John Dauphine

Throughout life, people are constantly telling us what we can or cannot become and what we have or don’t have. It’s just like they’re sticking a label on us: too short, too slow, too old, too many mistakes, not talented enough. These labels are not what God says about us. If we don’t know any better, we will wear them like they're the truth, and it limits what God wants to do in our lives. But understand, people don’t determine our destiny; God does. Thank you John for your encouraging words. John is another FB Friend who had a word to share with us. Please feel free to submit o us as well. Send your submissions to riverangel42@gmail.com.

Mmm Mmm Mmm I Look Good!

RiverAngel42, Thoughts
Take your phone, your scrapbook, photo albums and find that one picture of yourself. You know the one that you took that day when your hair was just right. Or the one when your smile and everything else was perfect. The sun was shining on the green tree in front of your house, giving just the right amount of light and shade to make you look like a model. Or the one that one day last year when you were getting ready to go out for a while and you had that outfit on, you know the one, the one that everybody that passed you on the street said was Dy-no-mite. Take a good look at that picture, feel good about yourself and brace yourself for what is next. No matter how good you look in that picture. No matter how perfect the lens captured your outer beauty. On the inside you are broken. The...

Thought of the Day: Mind What You Say, Pastor Zachery Tims Home Going

Christian News
As many of you know Pastor Tims family has decided that they will keep both the Wake and Funeral Services private. As I was sitting here I began to SPECULATE as to what reasons they might have had to make such a last minute decision. I began to think about my life as the Pastor's granddaughter. I thought about how many times we had a family gathering that he had to miss because someone's child got locked up or because a member was either in need or in the hospital. We literally shared our grandfather with what seemed to me as a small child to be the world. Now we had a small congregation so I could only imagine what Pastor Tims family life must have been like with such a large congregation and two churches. I am sure he had to miss a lot of precious moments trying to do God's work while hi...
