Be Ready to Change


Blog ideas come to me from many places and this one is from Pastor Matthew Ruttan’s July 17th devotional. The photo and its caption captured my attention. It reminded me of the many times I’ve heard this from people…”That’s just the way I am and I can’t change.”

Well, that’s all fine and dandy but what if a change would be for the better as in the case of the caterpillar?

What if you could learn more, do more, be more, have more peace and become aware of your life’s purpose?

I’m not calling myself a butterfly but I’m sure glad God loved me enough to not leave me as I was. Are you ready to be changed? Accept the love that is offered and watch the cocoon of your life take wings.

God loves you as you are. But God loves you too much to leave you as you are. 

Some Wise Words


I picked this post up from one of Matthew Ruttan’s daily devotionals…as much for the picture as for the words. Some things always give us something to think about and this is one of those things…definitely thought provoking don’t you think? I hope your Wednesday offers you some wise words.

Something Borrowed


 

I can’t help once again sharing something that touched me from another person’s blog, so I borrowed this from Matthew Ruttan who writes “UP! Your Daily Devotional”. It is from a piece called The Clock is Ticking posted on July 12th.

I want

  • Someone to not feel alone
  • Someone to laugh and mean it
  • Someone to know God has a plan for their life
  • Someone to serve others and help others serve others.
Do you?
Let’s analyse what Matthew is saying here.
First       Someone to not feel alone…..I feel very sad thinking about the loneliness some people endure on a daily basis…especially those who have just lost a loved one.
Second    Someone to laugh and mean it…..laughter can be so superficial sometimes, that it is good to hear someone have a great laugh that comes from their toes and works it’s way up to the face where it can be a joy for all to see and hear.
Third      Someone to know God has a plan for their life…..so many people don’t know this wonderful fact and therefore miss out on the adventure of living in anticipation of “something wonderful is going to happen”.
Fourth    Someone to serve others and help others serve others…..this is a wonderful antidote for mild depression, melancholy, self pity, self-centeredness and boredom.
There is so much rich material out there that tomorrow I just might use another “something borrowed”.
