Useful Again: Redeemed for a Purpose

Today's Prompt: Useful We have a shed out back that is in need of being torn down.  But first, it has to be cleaned out.  Over the years, it has been a place where things we didn't use or need at the time have been put to "deal with later".  So one of my projects this summer is to deal with all that stuff so we can demolish that shed.  I've been throwing away, repurposing, and cleaning up items I've found.  It has been my own little treasure hunt!  One of the items I found was a bunch of silverware...

Longing for Love

**This post is part of the #write28days Challenge, writing and posting EVERY DAY in February Todays prompt: Longing   Welcome February, the month the world celebrates love. There are Christians who shun celebrating Valentine's Day.  However, I believe anytime real love is celebrated, God is pleased.   The longing to love and be loved is ingrained in each of us. Studies show this is one of the most basic and fundamental needs of all humans.  The ability to love and love others determines our happiness level, which affects our emotional, mental, and physical health.  Psychology Today says that the desire...

It's Time for a Personal Retreat!

Happy New Year!  It is the beginning of the Jewish New Year and a perfect time for a personal retreat.   A personal retreat is about taking time to get away from everyone and everything and allow Holy Spirit to revitalize our spirit, soul, and body.  We carve out room to spend an extended time with God and allowing Holy Spirit to do what He wants to.  Get away from your daily routine, celebrate His goodness and listen for His instructions for the upcoming year.  It is like taking a weekend with your best friend. To live the delightful life God...

What Now?

I don't know about you but there seems to be a letdown after a big holiday.  After all the activities of the last week, you may be asking, "what now?".  Imagine what the followers of Jesus felt.  From Palm Sunday, followed by Passover and ending on Easter Sunday, it was a busy week!   It must have been a roller coaster of emotions for those who lived it. We, of course, have the advantage of knowing how it all turned out. But those who followed Jesus either forgot what He had told them or never really believed it.  Some of His...

Abundantly Blessed so I Can Bless Abundantly

The Lord will command the blessing upon you in your storehouses and in all that you undertake, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you.   And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.    Deuteronomy 28:2 & 8   We've established that our storehouses are our finances, all we undertake is our job and activities, and our land is the place that God has called us to be.  That is where the blessing is coming that will overtake us.  The word overtake means to catch up...
