A Refreshing Change in the Atmosphere - #6545
Do the jobs no one else wants to do, and let God use you to clear out the oppressive heat of selfishness. What a refreshing change in the atmosphere you could bring to the place where you live.
I was struck by Tiger's admission this week that the problems aren't just physical. He said, "There are a lot of things going on in my life. I'm just trying to get everything in a harmonious spot, and that's not easy to do." It's easy to throw stones at Tiger. What he needs is our prayers.
It's A Too Small World - #2530
When you invite Jesus into your life, it's this Jesus you get! He wants you to be like Him, self-forgetful, not self-focused. A world that's only as big as you are is too small a world to live in. Jesus invites you to break out, to start finding the needs around you and doing something about them. To focus on others instead of yourself, to find your life by giving it away, not to lose your life by hanging onto it.

God’s view would seem to be that the “last frontier is the human heart.” That is the vast and violent wilderness that remains untamed inside us. And it’s usually the people closest to us who can attest to the fact that our dark side is alive and well – and yes, it’s untamed. They get to see and feel it all too often.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Hurricane Glue - #8060
You know that could be you and your family or you and your marriage. Maybe you’re being hit hard by one of life’s financial hurricanes or medical or emotional hurricanes. Now it will do one of two things—it’ll drive you closer together or further apart. It won’t be the storm that decides it; it’ll be your choices.
