Jesus Facts

Posted by WebMaster on April 20, 2011 at 11:24 AM Comments comments (0)

Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master. Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.

(I got this from Mark)

Worry vs Belief

Did you know it takes the same amount of energy to believe as it does to worry?

See Matthew 6:25-34

The 5 Finger Prayer

Posted by WebMaster on August 30, 2010 at 11:32 AM Comments comments (0)

This is so neat. I had never heard this before...

This is beautiful - and it is surely worth making the 5 finger prayer a part of our lives.

 

  1. Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a "sweet duty."
  2. The next finger is the pointing finger.
    Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.
  3. The next finger is the tallest finger.
    It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. T hey need God's guidance. 
  4. The fourth finger is our ring finger.
    Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger; as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too much for them. 
  5. And lastly comes our little finger the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others.  As the Bible says, "The least shall be the greatest among you. " Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.

Concentrate on this Sentence

Posted by WebMaster on April 5, 2010 at 11:07 AM Comments comments (0)

'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'

 

When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.

 

Concentrate on this sentence....

 

'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'

 

Something great will happen to you todat, just be prepared for it.
