09.27.17 Wacky Wonderful Wednesday

Hi folks! Our Weekly Wacky Wonderful Wednesdays will be changing to a randomly published Wacky Wonderful Something! Our travels in our motorhome throughout the United States and writing our travel blog is leaving me with little time to put together wacky things! You can read our travel blog at http://rosalynandroy.com if you’d like to see what we’ve been up to. I LOVE putting together the goofy, silly, heartwarming things in the Wacky blog so I hope I never have to stop it but for now it will not be a regular Wednesday thing. It’ll be a surprise!

Let Go of Negativity
By Tracie Miles

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:2 (NLT)

Several years ago, I went to a summer camp for girls with my daughter Kaitlyn. One of the group activities Kaitlyn looked forward to was the high ropes and zip-line course. Her enthusiasm was so contagious … I even put my name on the list to participate. The time came to put on our safety gear and listen to the guide for basic instructions. As we patiently waited in line, Kaitlyn became more and more excited, but I grew more and more nervous.

The more I doubted my abilities, the more my confidence sunk. As I allowed negative thoughts (even some irrational ones) to fill my mind, the likelihood of actually going through with this activity greatly diminished. Unfortunately, my turn finally came, and I began slowly and hesitantly making my way up the tree — with zero percent confidence and 100 percent doubt. No more than 30 seconds had passed when I caved to my fears. I immediately climbed right back down the tree, took off my safety gear and surrendered defeat. I went right back to my comfort zone where it seemed safer.

Missing out on this activity wasn’t really a big deal in the big scheme of life. But I couldn’t help but wonder how many big things I’d missed in the past because of negative thinking — like pursuing God’s call on my life. I thought back to times when I knew God called me to share my testimony, but I’d allowed fears of judgment or shame to silence me. I considered the years I wasted not writing and speaking for His kingdom, my negative thoughts convincing me I wasn’t worthy or qualified to do either.

When we allow negative thinking to take up residence in our minds, our thoughts will become an obstacle to our obedience. Pessimistic thinking — whether about our life, our self-worth or our abilities — will always stand in the way of following God’s call.

Romans 12:2 assures us when we invite God to transform our minds and change how we think, He’ll do exactly that.Negative thinking can keep us from pursuing God’s call to be a leader in His kingdom. But the good news is, we don’t have to let them. Intentionally choosing to put aside negative thoughts about ourselves empowers us to stand strong when the enemy tries to thwart our efforts.

When our thoughts are positive, our hearts will be too, and obedience will flow more naturally.

OH HOW i WISH I HAD DONE THIS WHEN MY SONS WERE GROWING UP.

GOD’S PURPOSE, By John North

“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31

God does what he plans, and nothing can keep him from it!

Think about who God is. He’s the Supreme Being of the universe, the Creator of everything besides himself, the Author of life. He’s omnipotent, all powerful. If God decides to do something, what could possibly thwart his purpose? Nothing!

Some Christians are afraid of God’s power, as if it could mean disaster for them. But only those who are opposed to God’s purpose need to fear his power. If you’re building your life around God’s purposes in this world, then you can be sure that all of God’s power stands behind you, ready to support his work through you.

If you don’t have a clear sense of what God’s purpose is for you, then build your life around the purposes of God that are true for everyone. He wants you to honor him with your life, to speak of him to others, to give him the credit for what he does in your life, and to pursue a deeper relationship with him each day.

God is reassuring you through this verse today that he’s dependable; his promises are reliable; and you don’t need to be nervous about following his will in your life. If he is for you, who can be against you?

..so this is what we’re doing here today: simply being grateful for that one small thing… & one more small thing… & one more small thing — just taking back ground one grateful step at a time till the battle is WON. *Gratitude wins our wars.* Because gratitude isn’t only a celebration when good things happen; Gratitude’s a declaration that God is good *no matter what happens.*

Today, listen to your absurdly glorious life.

Listen to the holy heart of your one sacred life.

You need to take time to listen to your life —
so you can make the life you need.

Life’s not about growing in status— it’s always about growing your soul. Be small and love large: because getting to be present to love your people’s hearts is a great gift.

Let’s be still long enough to drink down all this ordinary glory and hear your heart keep beating how *all is grace*.

OUR NATION, By Debbie McDaniel

“Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.” – Isaiah 58:1

Sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin or how to pray. We just know we have a deep ache in our hearts that cries out for God’s mercy, and a longing to see him heal our land. And maybe other times we wonder how effective our prayers even are. Yet God is faithful, no matter how we feel, and over all that swirls around us in our nation today.

He hears our prayers, He knows our needs. There’s great power in uniting together, turning our hearts towards God, and praying on behalf of our nation.

Remembering today this powerful truth upon which this nation was founded. We are “One Nation Under God.” He is where our real hope is found, not in our leaders, not in our economy, not in the condition of our nation today, or any other day.

What if God couldn’t take the time to bless us today because we couldn’t take the time to thank Him yesterday?

What if God decided to stop leading us tomorrow because we didn’t follow Him today?

What if we never saw another flower bloom because we grumbled when God sent the rain?

What if God didn’t walk with us today because we failed to recognize it as His day?

What if God took away his messge because we failed to listen to the messenger?

What if God didn’t send His only begotten Son because He wanted us to be prepared to pay the price for sin?

What if the door tof the church was closed because we did not open the door of our heart?

What if God stopped loving a caring for us because we failed to love and care for others?

What if God would not hear us today because we would not listen to him yesterday?

What if God answered our prayers the way we answer His call to service?

What if God met our needs the way we give Him our lives?

 

I AM HOPING MORE COMMUNITIES WOULD DO THIS, IT’S AMAZING!
