Babbling


In some instances the word babbling has undesired connotations, as in constant talking. May our babbling be like a brook…gentle, easy flowing, and heading somewhere. Happy Sunday.

I Have a Problem


I have a problem with a few things in life, namely:

Holding grudges for years

Wielding a higher education over those of lesser learning

Not seeing both sides of a situation

Not heeding our own conscience or well intended advice

Those who believe being right is their right even when they are wrong

Those who wield their power to the detriment of others

Those who believe their lives matter more than someone else’s

Not using forgiveness as a way to ease a variety of social illnesses

Abandonment…human or otherwise

Seeing the speck in another’s eye without observing the log in our own

I could go on and on but I have a problem with me having a problem with all of this.

 

More Power to You


What do you think of when you think about power? Do you think of those who hold high places in government? Do you think of the rich and famous? Power is only powerful when used for the benefit of all. Here is what the Bible has to say about power: 

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, Acts  1:8 ESV

For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power. 1 Corinthians 4:20 ESV

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, Ephesians 3:20 NIV

 “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV

 

being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, Colossians 1:11 NIV

And from my poem “All Things Are Possible”…When you call on the power that’s inherent in you…

So, what do you think of when you think about power? Do you think of you?

IN FLANDERS FIELDS POEM
The World’s Most Famous WAR MEMORIAL POEM
By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

Lieutenant Colonel John McCraeIn Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!

Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields

Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915
during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium
