    Mew-sing 2008

    About 5 years ago, I noticed a little phrase in Acts 13:36 that forever altered the direction of my life. It was only seven little words but, like the stamp of a searing hot branding iron, my life was permanently marked by the words: "David ...  served God's purpose ... in his generation" ...

    There is no greater epetaph than that statement! Imagine it chiseled on your tombstone.

    What will be the community of  [your]  life? ... How will you demonstrate your commitment to other believers and connection to the family of God?... To which church family will you be joined as a functioning member? The more we mature, the more we will love the Body of Christ and want to sacrifice for it. You may wonder, "What about God's will for my job or marriage or where I'm supposed to live or go to school?" Honestly, these are secondary issues to your life, and there may be multiple possibilities that would all be in God's will for you. What matters most is that you fulfill God's eternal purposes regardless of where you live or work or whom you marry.  Those decisions should support your purposes.

    One day HIStory will come to a close, but eternity will go on forever. William Carey said, "The future is as bright as the promises of God."

    When fulfilling your purposes seem tough, don't give in to discouragement. Remember your reward, which will last forever. The Bible says, "For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an geternal glory that far outweighs them all". (2 Corinthians 4:17)

    Merry CHRISTmas

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    I do so love each of you! Your warmth and support is obvious as I share my thoughts with you, my growth in Christ - my life - both good and bad ....

    I've (re) read many comments left over the past couple of years; and scarsely could breathe when The Holy Spirit took over and I realized that LOVE comes from everywhere when you share the love of JESUS.

    Many names are now so familiar to me that I know each of you friends, confidantes and Brethren That being said .....

    Merry CHRISTmas
    Brothers and Sisters!

    I look forward with an open heart to spending much of 2008 here with you ..... at Christians Unite!

    With love from Terri - "TalkerCat"
    Your Friend and Sister in Christ

    Amid all the Christmas activities, one man is often forgotten.  No, I don't mean the person whose birthday we're celebrating.  Although we often fail to give Jesus first place as He deserves, we don't usually forget Him.  I'm talking about Joseph .... the man God trusted so much that He placed His Son in his home to love and nurture.  What a responsibility!

    Joseph truly is the forgotten man in the Christmas Story.  Yet his task was an important component of God's incredible plan.  As we read the story of the birth of Jesus, we find that Joseph was just, righteous, merciful, protecteve and courageous.  But most of all - he was obedient.  When the angel told him to take Mary as his wife, he obeyed. (Matt. 1:24)  And when the angel told him to flee to Egypt with Mary and Jesus, he did. (Matt. 2:13-14)  Just as Mary was carefully chosen to bear the Son of God, Joseph was deliberately chosen to provide for his young wife and the Christ-child.  And trusting God, Joseph followed through on everything God asked him to do.  What is God asking of you today? Are you willing to do whatever He wants you to do? 

    We can learn much about obedience from Joseph, "the forgotten man of Christmas".

    "What on Earth ....."

    "What on Earth are you doing?! ... "

    You may have heard that phrase when your mom told you to clean your room and found you playing with your toys instead or maybe when your teacher caught you passing notes in class..... But if God were to ask you this question, how would you respond?

    Paul tells us that as followers of Jesus we have been put on this earth  to bring glory to God in everything we do.  So what should that look like?  God's glory is the manifestation of all that He is in His unsurpassed, stunning perfection.  It is His amazing love, His wide mercy, His deep grace.  His Glory is seen in His truth, justice, wisdom and power.  To glorify Him means that we have the high privilege of showing Him off in a world that is totally unaware of what He is really like.  Acts of mercy to the undeserving, grace to the needy, foregiveness to an offender, living wisely according to His will -- all give glorious visiblity to the character and quality of our God.

    There are a lot of misconceptionss floating around about God.  It's our job to let others see what He really is like.  And, when they like what they see, let's be sure to let them know who taught us how to live like that..... May our lives be a "show and tell" for God's glory!

    My (this) blog dates back to November, 2005 - what a difference between now and then!! I was a 'mere babe' when I first joined Christians Unite, and while I'll continue to grow until the Lord calls me home, it's easy to see what great strides I've made in being a Christian woman. What a blessing to be called into service by and for our Awesome God. I never thought I had have anything to offer, but the Lord had different ideas! My own life experiences! Who'd a thunk it? Every once in awhile someone approaches me, someone I don't know, and asks me if they can pray ..... WOW!! To be asked for prayer! It's so humbling. And anyone that expresses pity upon me because of my physical limitations, gets the same reply "I'd rather be serving God from a wheelchair than have two legs and not know Him at all!..."

    I can scarsely wait to see what He has in store for me next!
