Far More

 

 

 

Walking out to the lake, the sun was setting with a golden hue.

The old propeller sea plane was docked, quietly waiting for the next trip to journey into the clouds.

Jets had recently graced the sky, leaving their trails high above, crossing each other like glistening swords in a fencing match.

Before me was evidence of two eras of technology—propeller planes and jet planes.

Both successful attempts to bring mankind ever farther above the ground in flight.

Also, before me was the sun.

That giant, burning creation that God holds in place so that we can live.

There are things that we can do with the gifts and talents that He gives us.

But the things that God can do?

We can’t even imagine.

Beyond our thoughts and hopes, He is at work.

 

Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. 

—Ephesians 3:20

Live a Happy Life!

 

 

Joy.

Happiness.

Is it hard to think about people that we read about in the Bible being joyful and happy?

Laughing?

Playing with their children?

Singing as they worked in the fields?

Saying, "Good morning!" to neighbors as they went out to begin their day?

They were real people, just like us.

God created laughter and joy.

As it was then, it is now.

God is still blessing His people with moments of happiness and joy.

Every good thing comes from Him.

As we live the moments of our lives, we can look at every aspect of it, alert to see God.

 

  Live a happy life!
Keep your eyes open for God, watch for his works;
    be alert for signs of his presence.

—from Psalm 105:1-6 The Message

Now faith

is the assurance

of things hoped for,

the conviction

of things

not seen.

A White Horse

 

 

 

 Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse! Its rider is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.  His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed that no one knows but himself.  He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is called The Word of God.  And the armies of heaven, wearing fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses.  From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron; he will tread the wine press of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.  On his robe and on his thigh he has a name inscribed, “King of kings and Lord of lords.”

 

 —Revelation 19:11-16
