Spectacle in the Sky - #6611
The much-hammered Apostle Paul put the troubles and the payoff on the scale and he weighed it this way: "Our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed..." (Romans 8:18). I guess we should learn something from the way we all come into the world. Labor - baby. Painful process - beautiful result.
Lit Up From the Inside - #6552
If you're a woman, why not begin a beauty treatment on the inside? Let Christ do a makeover; He's good at those. And let His radiance and His magnetic glow come through you. You'll be a solid gold woman, beautiful, not because you're made up on the outside, but because you're lit up on the inside.
Wait Till You See Your Senior Picture - #6442
if your eyes are on what you are, you'll be discouraged. If your eyes are on what you're becoming, you'll have hope with anticipation. When you and all the people you know see God's finished product, God's senior picture of you, you'll testify together, "What a miracle!"
Not in a Hurry - #6374
Trust your Father's timing. He does make everything beautiful in its time. Trust God's timing even if it seems late to you. God always seems to work a little more slowly than I want Him to, but He's always right on time.
Navigating Stormy Weather - #6370
Don't base your life on what's going to change in 20 minutes—which is your feelings. Base it on the Word of God which hasn't changed in 20 centuries.
How God Makes You a Masterpiece - #6244
When God wanted to explain to His people the painful events in their lives, He sent His prophet Jeremiah down to the potter's house for an illustration. Jeremiah said: "I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as it seemed best to him."
Light for Life's Darkest Valley - #6103
Jesus has, in essence, turned death from the enemy that destroys everything we have into a friend who opens the gate to everything God has. But if you don't know Him when you die, it will be too late to change it. Now is what we have. Some of us won't have a warning like my friend did. The end of our life will be sudden. The most dangerous thing you can do in your life, the most deadly, is to ignore or postpone or reject Jesus Christ.
"Beautiful" in the Bible: Ecclesiastes 3:11
God has made everything beautiful in its time--a reminder that God has a purpose for everything in His creation, and that people exemplify true beauty when they're working in tune with God's plan.
The Garbage Miracle - #3010
Beauty from ashes - praise from despair - something very special from something very ugly. If you will let Jesus be the Lord of your life's pile of garbage, He can make of it a mountain from which many will be able to see Him.
The Setting Without the Stones - #5813
If you've never been to that cross where Jesus died for every wrong thing you've ever done, I want to invite you to join the millions of women over the centuries who have found in Jesus Christ the love they have looked for their whole life. He is the one person with whom you are totally safe, whom you can totally trust, who knows all about you and takes you just as you are and loves you just as you are but doesn't leave you there.
