…don’t be afraid that you’ve mess it all up today. That’s why He came down. In Him, whatever goes bad, He’ll work it for good. It’s what God does. You can’t be undone.

So mid-week: no more fears. *The future is as bright as the faithfulness of God.* He turned water into wine; He will turn the broken into beautiful. God’s line of work is transformations — so hold on to Him as your lifeline tonight.

“…don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand new… There it is!

I’m making a road through the desert.” (Isa. 43:18 MSG)

In unlikely places, Lord, you’re always making unbelievable roads…and we believe it. So we’ll go face the rest of the week with joy — knowing You’ve got our back.

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.

He is my lighthouse through the storm. He is my refuge and strength. He is the Rock of Ages and King of Kings. When it seems the weight of the world crashes in on you, HE will hold you steadfastly through it all!

RECLUSIVE NEIGHBOR FACING $3,000 IN CODE VIOLATION IS RESCUSED BY EXT DOOR COUPLE. by McKinley Corbley

before-house

Anne Glancey didn’t have the money to repair her deteriorating house, nor did she have the family or friends to help her do it – until one day her neighbors decided to fix it themselves.

The retired school teacher’s home wasn’t exactly easy on the eyes – Hamilton Township, New Jersey told her that if she didn’t remove the rusting car in her yard, chip and peel the paint of her house, and fix the shrubbery in her yard, she would face up to $3,000 in code violations per day.

Anne’s neighbors, Adam and Kristin Polhemus, were the first people in the community to reach out to the hermit. When they learned of her financial dilemma, they took matters into their own hands.

Every summer weekend, Kristin and Adam would recruit their family, friends, and neighbors to join them in fixing Anne’s house.

In lieu of the constant stream of helpers, Anne even came out of her shell to serve orange juice and homemade carrot cake to the volunteers.

By the end of the August, the home was completely transformed and the code violations were dropped.

“To see the joy on our neighbor’s face, I think the biggest thing is Anne’s happiness and her kind of restored life,” Adam told People magazine. “Her outgoingness to other neighbors is based on her house being improved.”

QUOTES FROM ANN VOSKAMP, Author of A Holy Experience

I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives.

When grief is deepest, words are fewest.1976313jq3cr7lsu0

QUOTES FROM ANN VOSKAMP, Author of A Holy Experience

“When we can’t bottle our tears up anymore, God catches every one in His bottle. God’s catching every falling tear because He won’t let us fall apart.”

“In a storm of struggles, I have tried to control the elements, clasp the fist tight so as to protect self and happiness. But stress can be an addiction, and worry can be our lunge for control, and we forget the answer to this moment is always yes because of Christ.”

“Giving thanks is that: making the canyon of pain into a megaphone to proclaim the ultimate goodness of God when Satan and all the world would sneer at us to recant.”

A DISH OF ICE CREAM

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.

“How much is an ice cream sundae?”

“50 cents,” replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it.

“How much is a dish of plain ice cream?” he inquired. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient.

“35 cents,” she said brusquely.

The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed.

When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.

There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.

A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.

They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, “I’ll give each of you just one wish”

“Me first! Me first!” says the administration clerk. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.” Poof! She’s gone.

“Me next! Me next!” says the sales rep. “I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.” Poof! He’s gone.

“OK, you’re up,” the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”

Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say.
