Before I get started, I wanted to share great website, and especially their freebies page - chock full or fun ideas.
FREEBIES From the Women of Proverbs 31 Ministries.
Its a wonderful place with more devotions, and great help for your day. Options for super reading, books, training classes for writing and more. These women are just like us, allowing themselves to show their vulnerabilities and how God helps them day by day. Great Inspiration. They bless me, and make me want to meet them.
I love feeling like I am one of something, a kindred spirit with people who think like I do. But what really excites me, is when I think how wonderful that the Holy Spirit shares with all of us the same message. There are times that I will go to 3 or so of my favorite devotional pages, or watch Dr. Charles Stanley, or Mr. Prince and all of them are speaking on the same message. I know they didn't plan it, often from different "religious" ties, and having various audiences, but all are speaking on the same subject...and sometimes it was the same one the Spirit shared with me before I heard any of them. Same thing happens sometimes when sharing with friends. What the Lord has shared with them, and gave them on an inspiring card, or facebook Pic, or whatever...is the same thing the Lord gave to me. It encuorages me to find those persons, read what they are writing, become one in prayer with them and know that the same Spirit in me is the one in them. We don't just serve the same God, we are one with the same God and he in us. Its a connection that will stand the test of eternal time.
I am truly thankful on this day before Thanksgiving that Jesus called us to be one people, and gave us one name. We are one family, with one heart, and one savoir.
And they shall be my people and I will be their God: And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me fore ever; for the good of them, and their children after them. Jeremiah 32: 38,39.
Wishing all of our friends a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and the best upcoming Christmas season, in spite of everything the world around us says is about to befall us. Let us remind one another, that we all have the same wonderful God still in control!
Thank you amazing Father for Sharing with us your Spirit. The thing that binds our spiritual family, is not a prayer, or good will, or service, or many of the things that other "religions" claim brings peace or wholeness. It is you, the one true God making us one with him and with each other, of one mind and one heart. Help us Lord to stand through the tough times with one heart. Uniting around the message of the Spirit that leads us to meet each day with only the toils of that day. One message, one savoir, one blessed path. In Jesus Name AMEN
