painting

I’ve been doing to painting this week…

pic to come

and I was struck by the clean-ness of the appearance of the room after the paint went on…

below was the grime and scratches, dents and spots from years of use…

but they are covered now, and clean and new looking…

like the follower of Jesus upon belief…

righteousness is a coat we wear that makes us fit for God

because He has cast our sins as far away as the east is from the west…

solitude

is less a place to gather strength and more a place of conversion: where the old person dies and the newly filled person emerges…

don’t think retreat… think surrender

pride

pride breeds insecurity

another unrelated thot…

the difference between eastern meditation and Christian meditation is that in eastern meditation you try to empty yourself… in Christian meditation, you realize you are already empty and seek to have God fill you with His Spirit…

what will they say when you’re gone?

in my role as a minister of the gospel, i am called upon from time to time to help a family during a death in the family…

today i have been doing that… i invested some time listening to a family who has lost a loved one…

they described thier loved one and told stories of thier relationship…

i am humbled by this question: what will my loved ones say when i am gone?

the ramifications of this question speak to how i invest my life in people now… we should all slow down, and ask ourselves: (not to get great kudos then [or now] but to evaluate our life calling NOW)

What could/would they say when i am gone?

this thought drove me to some scripture that should challenge us all… 2 Cor 5
