Show me the one, show me the way, help me to know just how to share the love You gave.

Look around you! There is probably someone who could use some love! All too often, we find ourselves surrounded by people who are going through some difficult times. Perhaps you are! Whether it's unemployment, family problems, health problems, depression, loneliness, or whatever, all of us would like some relief from what we are going through. We need to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

And there is! The Light of Lights, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is willing and more than able to lift us from our darkness, into His pure and safe haven of light. He promises His love and presence to heal and deliver, to strengthen and help, all those who call on Him.

Like the beam from the mighty lighthouse, that directs ships safely back to harbor, His Light is there to show us the way to Him, for Jesus is truly the Way, the Truth and the Life.

It is my prayer that this site encourages you to reflect His light to those around you who need to know Him. Let Him use you to share His love. And as you embark on this remarkable journey, please share your experiences so that all of us can grow together in our quest to reach all the world, lest anyone should perish.

May God richly bless you!

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

When The Mouth is Faster Than The Brain

I was browsing through the Psalms this morning and came across the following scripture found in Psalm 39:
I said, "I will watch my ways
and keep my mouth from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth
as long as the wicked are in my presence."
But when I was silent and still,
not even saying anything good,
my anguish increased.
My heart grew hot within me,
and as I meditated, the fire burned;
then I spoke with my tongue.
That really got my attention! How many times have we promised ourselves that we wouldn't talk about someone, or be critical, or judgemental, but ended up spilling the beans! We couldn't help ourselves and just blurted out all that "wonderful knowledge" we have stored up in our brains, without regards to who our words would hurt. Or how we would come across.
I checked my concordance and there are at least 41 verses on the tongue! No wonder we find ourselves getting in trouble! But our words reflect what's in our minds, and it's up to us what we fill our minds with. Regular times with the Lord, getting into His Word, and a determined prayer time will help us tremendously. We will find ourselves being filled with the mind of Christ, and what comes out of our mouth will reflect His love and compassion for others.
So, the next time you find your mouth rushing ahead of your brain, STOP! Get alone with the Lord, and pray this  from Psalm 19:14:
May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
