Faithfulness

by: Don Carmichael

01/23/2023

0

We recently considered the thoughts of Semper-Fi, always faithful, to the point of us being consistently reliable.  We have as the ultimate the exhibition and promises of God Who faithfully executes His will on earth as it is in heaven.  We also learn that we need to be an example of this same kind of faithfulness, full of faith that we, too, exhibit this same characteristic in all that we do and are.  Pleasing to Him, depended on by others. Few of us will ever have to und...

Two Feet, Two Steps

by: Don Carmichael

01/16/2023

0

Can you imagine any other design for our feet?  Two feet and one step or one foot and two steps?  The intent is moving forward with our feet based on what we are learning, not two feet moving two steps back!Jesus was quick to counter the culture right where He was; even saying, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’” (Parenthetically, how did this become mainstream? It was not taught by Moses!) “But I say to you, Love your en...

With implies a togetherness, a support. In fact, a support that goes beyond our own innate capabilities.  That’s why our armed forces train and fight jointly, beyond each service of air, land, sea, space, and cyber.  That’s also why industry works hard to develop project teams. It’s about a greater result.If we were to count the times Jesus uses this thought of with, it would turn out to be a truckload!  Listen: “Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous a...

Loosed

by: Don Carmichael

01/02/2023

0

Perhaps you role-played as a child, even getting “captured,” lassoed, and tied up!  Loosed is the antithesis, the opposite in power of being bound and bounded.  Mentally loosed is being free to recognize the truth over any pretensions or constraints.  Even in our own country we have become bounded instead of free and unveiled.  Sometimes our “stomachs” are in knots or our heart races against time.  Even our wants overpower and bind us from our needs.“The man who had died c...

I trust your Christmas was both joyous on the inside and outside, regardless of location and company.  Welcome to the end of the year! where we have but a few days to review the past year, including Christmas this year.  Some of you experienced great achievements, maybe a few have gone through some critical trials.  Be they sad or joyful, or even a mixed basket of both, it’s now after Christmas.After Christmas, should we not continue in the Spirit of Jesus? — Who was sent ...

Listen Up!

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear this expression, “Listen up!” ?  Could it be, “not again,” or, “something important is about to come down.”  It might be important for the recital or agenda you are to perform on this day, or a simple but relevant reminder; or it might just be — a life-changer!

God told His prophet, His messenger to His people, “Pay attention and come to Me; listen, so that you will live.”  Now that’s a real and relevant attentio

What We Know

by: Don Carmichael

12/12/2022

0

What we know is a small portion of the composite of knowledge.  Even less is understanding, for a great deal of what we know we don’t understand, regardless of realm, be it physical or spiritual.  And just because we can “speak it,” and our favorite morning or evening song begins to play, this does not mean we know the physics and other sciences behind the music.  And how does that music, now hearing, calm or excite us, being a physical expression of our spirit?  What we k...

Spectrum

by: Don Carmichael

12/05/2022

0

Faith is forever being defined and explained, but it often takes a turn as we find and rediscover it’s place in our personal lives and application; a place on the spectrum of light, which is a small frequency band.  The light spectrum includes what we don’t see, like the infrareds and ultra violets, lights that are a step beyond visible.  I remember once taking a job position that I really did not want, but it was the only one available!  So, yes, I took it on the obviousl...

Baby Steps and High Beams

Contrary to our pace of 0-60, which takes us to wherever we are detailed, there is another speed that is more important.  If we’re traveling that fast, often we hear only the wind and miss much.  God reveals His wisdom at a slower speed, wanting us to hear, not fear.  “Listen to counsel and receive instruction so that you may be wise later in life.  Many plans are in a person’s heart, but the LORD’s decree will prevail.”  So, as it’s His will that will be done, “Listen to ...

When All Is Said and Done

by: Don Carmichael

11/21/2022

0

We really have a fetish to be near-sighted, from our to-do lists to our habits.  I remember seeing more than one that had post-it notes or note pads everywhere, full of notes: reminders full of notes to be done immediately, as in that day.  But alas, many were still there when the day expired, ready for the day following and even later, when all is said and done.When the work looks like we need to move, like the ice is melting or darkness is looming, we are reminded of wha...

Gifts

by: Don Carmichael

11/14/2022

0

We normally think of gifts as something we get, received from another, like for graduation or birthdays or Christmas, or even just because, which is even more special, since we were not expecting it.  The design is normally for our need or pleasure, although sometimes we may have to grow into it.  Perhaps the gift is needed clothing or perhaps as the result of starting a new job.  Or the gift could be a game, board or digital, just for fun. God gifts us out of His abundanc...

When the workload becomes overwhelming, don’t quit!  Be your battlefield downrange, children, work, study, illness, or other life balance, don’t quit! Yes, you may have to rearrange a daily schedule, even cut out the non-essentials or fluff, but don’t quit!Apostle Paul had even been shipwrecked and another time stoned and left for dead, be he learned to be able to sing at midnight in jail, and admonishes us to “Not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper ti...

Statements

0

Statements, one-liners, quotes, verses and lines and stanzas; they all have one thing in common, being a thought.  Even a bank statement expresses a single thought at a point in time, although with many lines of activity.  I’m sure you accountants and financialists can say this better with your vocabulary, but what the statement is saying is your balance from their perspective.  Hopefully, it’s never a surprise!The Bible gives us many statements, lines of verse, historical...

Submission

SubmissionAlthough often met with resistance, on the other side of anarchy is submission, submission to law and order, seemingly contrary to the thoughts of many in this age.  Within itself, submission is a confession, an agreement with the need to work within an established framework, regardless of it being of earth or heaven, physical or spiritual, laws of the land or kingdom above.The Apostle, being from the Jewish heritage himself, was able to testify his people had...

living w/god: Baptismal speech

I am Desire and this is my son Enrique Gianluca. Today, I am here to share with you how God has changed my life.

For a long time, I wondered why, why things were not happening the way I wanted them to happen, after all, I was working hard, I was providing, I was strong, and I trusted myself.  As I looked for answers, I turned to the world, but the world was not providing answers.  I found myself blind, hopeless, and disoriented, and I lost all perspective. In my desperation, I turned to Christ, and I asked Him to come into my life and free me from this burden and guide me to live for him.

It was not until God heard my request that I received answers. The day that He knocked on my door and I opened my heart to Him was the day I understood I inflicted this pain on myself because, for a long time, I trusted myself instead of trusting Him, I relied on myself when I should rely on His promise. Jesus said on Matthew 11: 28-29 “Come upon Me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me. For I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul, and My yoke is easy, and my burden is light

When God came into my life, he offered me a new beginning, a new life, and I embraced it with open arms because for the very first time, I understood that I am not alone and I should not be afraid because everything is under His control, not mine, and so I trust Him, and today I declare Him as my savior, my refuge, and my strength.
