Fearless in time of need

With the recent events worldwide we may ask ourselves how do we overcome fear and danger?  Certainly, this is not a new question as perhaps even Christ Jesus recognized the fear and danger of his own day -- and of what faced him directly with the upcoming crucifixion. Christ Jesus' words on the cross point to his yielding to God and His power: “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit” (Luke 23:46). To commend our spirit, our nature, our life, our very being, to God means to confidently trust God to deliver us in times of great need and fear. It means to allow Him to be in charge of us. And we do this by prayerfully learning to yield fear to trust in God. Yielding any fear we may hold in thought to complete trust and conviction in God and His power wipes out the fear and replaces it with the spiritual understanding of our relationship with God. This spiritual understanding is an awareness of God’s action in our lives. It is an alertness to His healing influence. It is ever-opera…

Learning more about God can get us out of rough spots...

Determination often wins the prize!

The Lord's Prayer in Romanian!
Enjoy!
 Tatal nostru care esti in ceruri, (Our Father which art in heaven) 
Sfinteasca-se numele Tau (Hallowed by thy name) 
Vie imparatia Ta, faca-se voia ta, (Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done,) 
Precum in cer asa si pe pamant. (As in heaven, so on earth) 
Pain ea noastra cea de toate zilele, Da-ne-o noua astazi (Give us this day our daily bread) 
Si ne iarta noua gre~elile noastre (and forgive us our mistakes/debts) 
Precum si noi iertam gresitilor nostri (as we forgive others mistakes/debts) 
Si nu ne duce pe noi in ispita ci ne izbaveste de cel rau. (and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil) 
Ca a Ta este imparatia si puterea. si slava, (That thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory .... ) 
Acum si pururea si in vecii vecilor, (Now and forever and ever) 
Amin. 

Have Fifty Minutes?

Her offer was all it took!

Everyone knows it’s stressful enough to fly the skies as it is. Throw a dad flying solo at Christmas with an 8-month-old into the mix, and you’re looking at the kind of stress that would make someone curl up into a ball and cry. Little man was doing well on his second flight ever, hanging out on dad’s lap. But it wasn’t long before he decided he was more interested in his neighbor sitting in the window seat than he was in cuddling with dad. “After brief introductions and him fighting me trying to crawl over to her, she opens her arms and says ‘oh just give him to me!’” The dad wrote on Facebook. And her offer was all it took! “Not 60 seconds later he puts his head down on her chest and falls asleep!” She then proceeded to tell the dad that if he wanted to take a quick nap, she would hold the child so he could catch up on some sleep. Being seated next to each other made these three neighbors in proximity. But it was the woman’s kindness that showed love to her two neighbors. Love has its sour…
