Some verses on doing good...

"..[T]here is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live." ~Ecclesiastes 3:12
"So I saw that there is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work," ~Ecclesiastes 3:22
"But to do good and to communicate forget not, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased." ~Hebrews 13:16
"Anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing." ~John 14:12
"[W]isdom is proved right by her actions." ~Matthew 11:19
"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit" ~John 15:16

Doing Good

When you think of doing good but you don't go ahead and act you have already failed. But if you think of the good and do it and leave it to God that He will give you more when you can handle it, yes, that is very good. Don't make it a real big deal in your mind, really, that must be the hardest thing I've had to learn to let go (I'm still learning). The thing you want to remember is do. Simply do. Most of what is good is not thought about with much thought at all. And this is shocking to us something crazy.

To Do Good...

One of the greatest secrets of planting and reaping up a harvest of righteousness is doing good. Everytime "let him show it by his good life, by deeds done [in humiliy]" (Ja.3:13). But doing good is a sacrifice. It will always involve giving on the part of the do-gooder. I love the mark of love that Mother Theresa has left for us: She said, "I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love." But when you come against a situation where you do not feel like you can give any more love, that is when you need God-love. Only He can make it possible to love like He did. In case I haven't taken my case home: serve others, put them first. It's easy to know God, you do good and forget about yourself.

Live like a Christian!

Just when we think it's all a bunch of steps in the dark we have to make, concerning the big decisions nineteen to early twenty-somethings have struggles with, it's not always so easy if you've become a "somebody" with standing, or a person who went into debt for sake of "good-times" and fun...Not even if you travel around and see places all over and have a dream home with a family who loves and cares for you. Something may look good, only to not be as good as "so and so's" or whatever life you may wish to have different than what you have. Because selfishness battles to portray happiness in a way that is more than''' more than what you have. But key to happiness is "loving what you got" as one song states it, adding more to satisfaction, yeah, that's just for overindulgence, or nausea. In a position of defeat, being single with babies or married and have to run schedules and ops you find some work for pennies or a man who is half what you want and nobody's happy. Even if you do it right you can be miserable. If there can't be hard work and hard prayer and hard waiting on God's timing and hard awareness of evil....whatever situation a young person might approach. The part I see about indecision is laziness. All that's not worth it for us. It's going to take some good collection of funds...some good strategic planning, waiting on God's timing for a love-bird of one's own to continue in ministry with. It's just time for us to pray for what you want and serve other's in whatever loving way God has shown you. Josh Harris isn't the one who's started the service-mindset, but by way of starting it fresh in our Gen-Y day...yes, we did learn these things and there's no excuse not to live them. Other's may not have seen any other choice. That is for the Christion to quit his foolishness and declare God's righteousness and love with all that God has given us for influence now. Praise God and live right!

Ministry of Heart

Recently I was met with instruction in love, totally God-appointed and here's how it happened: I was ravished. I reached. I received. Praise the Lord! I was met with unusual challenges this week...thankfully, my brothers and sisters were there to lean on and God in Christ prayed for my poor tent of bodily weariness. I'm so thankful. But, yeah, this ministry of heart is what I'm getting at...encouragement. love. honor. sharing. devotion. That's what's needed. And there's always going to be hurts and needs. I cannot pretend I've got it all together or simply cope because that's stupid, I know I have need. Do you know you do? We as the body need eachother, daily, as long as the day, until Jesus comes. Let's do so.

Thank God for Amy

Amy Carmichael is my heroine! Although I cannot imagine leaving America right now because of all the work I feel needs to be done reaching girls in the city where I live; it does leave me wondering where I'll be when I let God really have His way with me :) Oh, dear! You will be there, my reader, my witness to see God work His work. Here and now, I have really ordinary tasks. Nothing like shaping your attitude in the base things as Amy Carmichael has said herself

"If by doing some work which the undiscerning consider 'not spiritual work'I can best help others, and I inwardly rebel, thinking it is the spiritual for which I crave, when in truth it is the interesting and exciting, then I know nothing of Calvary love,"

If I can work at base things with a heart full with love, I know that this yes this is what the Father wants for me, and knowing this He may choose to use me later, how He will, whatever that may be. Be patient little child.

"Utterly Irregular"

This is my generation: "Utterly irregular." This is taken from a beautifully disturbant speech at my graduation. Utter- Irregularity _fitting not to the public standard, yet forever and always in the public eye. Not because of us, but because of Whose Name we bear are we in the spotlight of the world. Marked by difference. We are

  • Daily cross-bearers.
  • Preachers of peace
  • Proclaimers of God's truth
  • United in love the world over
  • Ceaseless intercessors

And why would we want to be anything else? Obviously this is not for cowards. I wrote in my Bible once that being Christ-like, is anything but cowardice. And I know it is, because I have "died" to that old life I thought was so very important to me. Time and again I died these deaths. Until recently have I learned that all death is swallowed up in victory. That victory is mine and has been won so I might always see this one thing before me - the cross of our Lord.
