Made to Thrive (Sunday Song)

Did you know that God who created the whole Everything designed us humans for more than ordinary lives…that it was His good plan and purpose that we would thrive?  It’s true! 

We tend to get mired in the dailiness of a world which spins dizzily, surely out of our control…we’re trying to keep our heads above the waves, just catch a sustaining breath.  But God desires so much more for us:  “joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable, love unstoppable”, and a well rooted belief that “anything is possible”.

Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  John 10:10, KJB

“For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37, KJB

I believe that if I have mere mustard-seed-size faith today, I will more than survive—I can thrive.  That’s what Jesus offers, and all I need do is receive.  How ’bout you?  Are you ready for something more…like the greatest adventure in life?  Jesus invites everyone…let’s ride together!

Here’s your Sunday Song:  “Thrive”, by Casting Crowns.  Enjoy it, and May God bless you Abundantly this week! Rhen

Refuse the Lies

Lots of voices clamor for our attention…all around us, and inside our heads.  We must learn to discern which of them speak truth, and refuse the lies that seek our destruction.  The “still small voice” of God always speaks Truth, and from His Truth He declares His love for us.  He comforts, builds us up, affirms our fundamental identity, guides us, heals, and restores peace.  He’s the One who spoke everything into existence; and He shuts down every lying voice—so let’s lean close, stay tuned in.

“And after the fire, a still small voice.” 1 Kings 19:12, King James Bible

Here’s Lauren Daigle, with “You Say”.  May God bless you all abundantly today and always.  Rhen
