thought for today...

Thought for Today - Could it be that God is restless
As He swings His mighty rod
Itís not the storm that chastens
But the mighty hand of God.

A long time ago God had a great many burdens that He wished to have carried from one place to another on Earth. He asked the animals to lend a hand, but all of them had excuses for not helping: the elephant was too dignified; the lion, too proud; and so on...

Finally the birds came to God and said, "If you will tie the burdens into small bundles, we'll be glad to carry them for you. We are small, but we would like to help."

So God fastened upon the back of each bird a small bundle, and they all set out walking across the plain to their destination. They sang as they went, not minding the weight of their burdens at all. Every day the burdens seemed lighter and lighter, until the loads seemed to be lifting the birds, instead of the birds carrying the burdens.

When they arrived at their destination, they discovered that when they removed their loads, there were beautiful wings in their place. Wings that enabled them to fly to the tree tops and soar through the sky, closer and closer to God.

The burdens we carry for others, as well as ourselves, become wings of the spirit, lifting us to new places and bringing us closer and closer to God.

May you always Soar
in spite of your Burdens!

GOD'S WEATHER

"And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. But the men marveled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!"

Matthew 8: 26,27
King James Version


hurricanes that are a lot more harmful. We have hurricanes of divorce, drugs, alcohol, abuse of children, spouses, the elderly, and broken homes. While the hurricanes on land can cause destruction, eventually the homes and property will hopefully one day be restored. It is not that simple with a human life.

It is vital for us to examine our hearts and see if there is something that is displeasing to Jesus, something that might be hindering our fellowship with Him. If our hearts are not right before Him, then it is impossible to treat others with the love and compassion that He asks us to display to others.

Is your heart and life full of hurricanes of jealousy, bitterness, envy, strife, anger, and resentment? If so, then I urge you to go to God and let Him calm the storms in your heart. Jesus will shower you with His Peace, Understanding, Love, and Compassion and place His Love in your heart instead of the hurricanes of the world.

The Legend of the Robin

One day, long ago, a little bird in Galilee saw a large crowd gathered around a Man carrying a heavy wooden cross. On the Man's head was a crown made from a thorn branch. The thorns were long and sharp. The little bird saw that the thorns were hurting the Man. It wanted to help Him, so it flew down and took the longest, sharpest thorn in its tiny beak.

The bird tugged and pulled until the thorn snapped from the branch. Then a strange thing happened. A drop of blood fell onto the bird's breast, staining it bright red.

The stain never went away. And so today the robin proudly wears a red breast, because it helped a Man named Jesus.

This was sent to me by MADD (MOTHERS AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING)
I too am a Mother and it had a petition with it to send on to others to raise the awareness and teach teens and adults alike to not to drink and drive. If you would like the petition sent to you, send me a pm and email addy and I will forward it to you.
I lost it, I cried when I read this, maybe it will touch you too...

I WENT TO A PARTY, MUM
(Please read all the way to the bottom and sign your name)

I went to a party,
And remembered what you said.

You told me not to drink, Mom

So I had a sprite instead.

I felt proud of myself,
The way you said I would,

That I didn't drink and drive,

Though some friends said I should.

I made a healthy choice,
And your advice to me was right,

The party finally ended,

And the kids drove out of sight.

I got into my car,
Sure to get home in one piece,

I never knew what was coming, Mom

Something I expected least.

Now I'm lying on the pavement,
And I hear the policeman say,

The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,

Mom, his voice seems far away.

My own blood's all around me,
As I try hard not to cry.

I can hear the paramedic say,

This girl is going to die.

I'm sure the guy had no idea,
While he was flying high,

Because he chose to drink and drive,

Now I would have to die.

So why do people do it, Mom
Knowing that it ruins lives?

And now the pain is cutting me,

Like a hundred stabbing knives.

Tell sister not to be afraid, Mom
Tell daddy to be brave,

And when I go to heaven,

Put " Mommy 's Girl" on my grave.

Someone should have taught him,

That it's wrong to drink and drive.

Maybe if his parents had,

I'd still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom
I 'm getting really scared.

These are my final moments,

And I'm so unprepared.

I wish that you could hold me Mom,
As I lie here and die.

I wish that I could say, "I love you, Mom!"

So I love you and good-bye.
