Have you ever wondered how you can make a difference in the world. Often it's not what we preach but, how we live that teaches the best. So, what are you going to do about it?

If I could live my life like a sermon
For people to see and hear
My actions would be, the strongest voice
To make the message clear.

And if my life looked like a sermon
Or a lighthouse every day
God’s love could freely shine through me
And help someone find the way.

And if I lived a life that was true
Others around could see
God’s love through the pages of my life
By seeing Christ through me.

Give Thanks

Need a lift. A favorite Christian poet of mine is Helen Steiner Rice. Though she is no longer with us, her words will continue to bless and encourage us. Be encouraged with this lovely thought.

Give thanks for the blessings
that daily is ours—
The warmth of the sun,
the fragrance of flowers,
For the joy of enjoying
and the fullness of living
Are found in the heart
that is filled with thanksgiving.

Think and Speak like David

One of the most beautiful verses in the Bible is found in the book of Psalms. King David, who wrote this, was called a man after God's own heart. It's not hard to see why. May this prayer be yours, too.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19: 14
