Walking Life’s Shores

We are walking along the shores of life with our Friend. And, What A Friend We have in Jesus. He notices everything on the shore, things we might not notice. We point and ask what things are that we do not know. We ask for wisdom before handling anything on the shore. We talk to Him along the way, all day. We are at peace with real joy if we continue to talk as we walk. The storms that bring thrashing waves will not overcome us. He stands and blocks them as a wall so there is peace inside the storm, like inside the eye of an hurricane. He guides us around rocky shorelines. In the dark He stands as a lighthouse to guide.

Life with Jesus is best with open communication. Never a hangup, dial tone, dropped call or busy signal. Pray (talk) without ceasing.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
“16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” ~ NASB

Sunday. Rise and shine.

Sunday Morning ~ Rise and Shine and give God the glory.

1) Do I feel like it? No

2) Can I roll over and skip SS and just catch the service? No

3) Will I throw something on and go a mess? No

4) Am I going so to be entertained, socialize or “Praise”? NO

Sunday morning, when I WORSHIP as His Word instructs, when I give God my best, regardless of feelings. Once a week to gather with fellow believers and WORSHIP who God IS!

We have become so comfortable in PRAISE for what God DOES! The void in every human that was created by the fall of man can only be filled by God through His Holy Spirit. We need WORSHIP.

We approach God with our sacrifice. No longer required of first born sheep, best goat, etc. but, still we approach with our best.

IF we get up for work or school earlier in the week, why would we give Him less on Sunday and sleep in?

IF we spend time to be neat, clean, appropriately attired and dressed to a “code” for the job or class, why would we give God less?

My clothes may be old but, clean and holes mended; my shoes wiped clean though out of style. My hair only brushed and nails only filed but, if it’s my best how can I offer Him less?

I taught my children, I’ll teach my grands what God wants is for us to WORSHIP and give Him our best, not less.

We need to WORSHIP. It’s easy to Praise Him for what He does. But, to Worship Him as Savior, Sanctifier, Healing and Coming King is humbling. His Sanctification of us through His sovereign plan, His Healing us in His time, all comes from who He IS.

I need to WORSHIP and out of worship I will know how to fully Praise Him. Worship is about God and who He is.

Sunday morning for me, when He calls His saints to gather and WORSHIP. Rise and shine.

Step By. Step

For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, plans for prosperity and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NASB

7 years ago today, Father’s Day 2015 I had a double bleed stroke. I’d lived with migraines since childhood. In my 20’s the MRI technology could not reveal any issue. Decades later the cause, a congenital DVA (developmental vein abnormality in layman’s terms) ruptured. A trip to FL Hospital ER ended in an airflight to Tampa General. Ten days in NICU, 5 in Nuerology unit. God’s plan. So many Devine interventions and miracles. Seven years later I still live with the daily headache, about a 3 on the scale. Last year I successfully came off 3000mg of seizure meds. The fog has lifted. Except for right side numbness, the headache and some speech issues, people barely notice. It’s been a long road…

but, God.
Like my momma always said: “God is still on His throne, still in control. Nothing surprises Him. He loves me, He cares. He has a plan and I can trust Him.” Step by step.

But, God

But, God. The giraffes never doubt. One step in front t if the other, God meets their needs.

Seven years ago…

06/014/2015 ~ God trusts you. He is all-knowing and because He is all-knowing, He knows what you can handle. So what you are going through is what He is allowing, His allowing it means He knows that you are going to have the victory and come out a stronger and better Christian on the other side. So, when you wish you knew what was going to happen next during your rough seas, you do. You don’t have to know what, when, where or why; you know Who. ~ blessings, Renee’

One week later I was airflighted and given a 15% chance.

But, GOD.
God is still on His throne! God is still in Control! Nothing surprises Him!
God cares!
God loves you!
God has a plan!
You can trust Him!

Why Christians Shouldn’t Vote

“I can’t vote for any of them.” How many times have you heard that statement? Or, “I would be voting for the lesser of two evils.” Why should a Christian vote at all if the entire list for an office is worldly, ungodly or corrupt? So many choices for some offices. “I am only one vote. I cannot make a difference. My vote will be staying home. Buried.” If you feel that way you are the last man in the parable.

But he who received the one talent went away and dug a hole in the ground, and hid his master’s money. Matthew 25:18 NASB

United States of America, a Republic (not a democracy) governed BY the people, FOR the people. By His grace you were born here. God has given you something to be a steward of, YOUR VOTE. Are you going to sit on it, effectively burying it as the parable demonstrates?


1Every person is to be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. 2Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive
condemnation upon themselves. 3For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same;

So when you do not vote, you are in essence disobeying God. He put you in America where the government is by the people… so vote. No excuses. Research. If none or worthy, vote their policies. Vote God’s morality, not candidates.

Why shouldn’t a Christian vote? Only if they don’t want God to have the vote.
