Spreading the love of Jesus...the Cowboy Way!

JUST FOR TODAY: Thankfulness takes the "Sting" out of Adversity!

 

JUST FOR TODAY: The World tells us that a good relationship is one of give and take, but that's not the way a relationship with Jesus works.  Jesus will never "take" anything from you, and you will never "take" anything from Him, that's for sure.  The transactions between Jesus and his followers are always ones of Give and Recieve; very mysterious ways for us to get used to.  Example: The Bible in...structs us in Ephesians 5:20 to "give thanks" to Jesus for ALL things (good or bad); no matter how you "feel".  He doesn't force you to thank Him, but He will certainly "recieve" it if you do!  In return, Jesus will give you Peace and Joy; no matter what your circumstances are.  You don't force Him to give you Peace and Joy, but you will certainly "recieve" it when He does won't you?  To people who don't know Jesus, I know this all sounds crazy, but no matter what the World thinks, those who obey Jesus in giving Thanks in this way will always certainly be blessed, even though hard circumstances may remain.  Remember back when your Mamma would put "blueing" on a wasp bite to take the "sting" out?  THANKFULNESS is the "blueing" that will take the sting out of all the adversity in your life.  ~Pastor Lynn        
        Note:I apologize for the "blueing" analogy.  Sometimes I forget how old I am and I know most of you young whipper snappers don't have a clue what blueing is.  Ask your grandma or someone born in the 40's or 50's about it.  lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
