"Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice." Phil 4:4

God want us, commands us to be joyful... and not just in happy times, not just in easy times, not just in smooth times... ALWAYS!  Fridays are usually very productive days for me... maybe it is the pending crunch getting ready for worship this weekend... maybe Friday's are just my day... IDK.  BUT... I always wish I had just a few more hours in this day.  It seems like by Friday evening, I am working quickly, the ideas flow, the things get done... but sometimes I feel frantic too.  It is my commitment today, for this Friday, to slow down and REJOICE!  I am grateful for this day, grateful for my wonderful family and friends... for this church and ministries that God has allowed me to be a part of.  I an blessed!  I WILL rejoice!  I will "enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise."  (Psalms 100:4)  The quickest way into the presence of God is being thankful and praising Him.  Today, I plan to stay in His presence, not let the busy-ness and business of this day make me buys...

Join me today... Let's REJOICE IN THE LORD!

Blessed are the flexible

Happy Thursday to you!  I find it interesting that, just when we think we have it all figures out, something changes.  I try to remember that blessed are the flexible... for they shall not break.  we never know exactly what God has in store for us... life certainly is full of surprises and how much easier is it if I am ready to allow God to change my plans.  This coming Saturday we had tried to schedule Beach Baptisms... but it is not God's timing... and that is OK.  I am excited to see what He has in store for us instead... and also how amazing these baptisms will be when it is the right time.
I am thinking about the other areas God calls me to be flexible... to wait on Him... He always comes through. He always directs, always guides... the problem lies with me when I fail to listen or allow Him to be in control.  Zephaniah 3:17 keeps going through my mind...
"The LORD your God is with you,
       he is mighty to save.
       He will take great delight in you,
       he will quiet you with his love,
       he will rejoice over you with singing."
HE is mighty to save! and He actually takes great delight in me... and in you...
When this is at the forefront of my thoughts... nothing else seems to matter... much :)
