Taking Hold

God has promises and callings for each of our lives. Being in the courts of the king is not about how important others think we are but in how much we long to be there. We may serve Him in some of the most unexpected way and places when we simply take hold of that for which He has taken hold of us.

Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
Philippians 3:12 NKJV

Life changes, but he stays the same

This blogger has a lot of the same life changes this year as we did. Working to retirement(maybe) North to South- Latino to mostly Anglo neighborhood.. Still in the middle of different is that unchanging peace of Jesus. Whatever Jesus has next I also need to sit down with some good hot coffee instead of tea and soak it in. Anyone else want to chime in on their thoughts on change.

It's a God thing...

Some people crave variety. Adventure. Spontaneity.

Me? I’m more of a routine type.

Predictable days make me happy, and five-year plans are my fave.

This year however, God upended my life with a new suburb, a new church, and this month, a new job.

And now I think I’m ready for a cup of Rooibos tea and a good lie-down.

The changes have been exciting, yet scary and overwhelming at times.

But I’m so glad God has taken me out of my comfort zone.

One of the best things has been having the chance to reflect on the fact that while life may change, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

He is my constant.

My unchangeable friend, brother, Saviour and Lord.

Jesus remains the same, no matter what life brings.

And I can trust him with everything.

What changes has this year brought your way…

Living Hope – Everlasting Arms


This week I am dedicating the devotional and song to our good friend Carl Carey who is now leaning in the Everlasting Arms of Jesus. Those of us who knew him are sad today but on the other side there is only singing! May God bless you as you listen and find for yourself God’s wonderful living and everlasting hope!
