Words-The Living Word



November 13
A friend was toting me around to doctors' appointments Wednesday and also treated me to a delicious chicken, cranberry, pecan croissant for lunch at Sugar and Slice.  While the sandwich was delicious, it could not compare to the sea salt caramel mini cupcake I took home for an afternoon snack. (After visiting the cardiologist!  Ha!)

While using the restroom two words stared at me from a shelf and influenced my thought life in a positive way at that moment.

GRATITUDE and MIRACLE


Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs fro the Spirit, 
singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.  
Colossians 3:16 

You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.
Psalm 77:14 

And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, 
"A prophet is not without honor except in his own town and in his own home."
And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.
Matthew 13:57-58

One of my nephews called the other day and was sharing about a teaching he heard a couple weeks ago. The group he was with was studying the seven miracles mentioned in John.

The point made to my nephew is that everybody wants to experience a miracle in their life, but for a miracle to occur it  must be prefaced with a problem and very few people want to go through the problem.  Discussing this with my new friend behind the counter at Sugar and Slice, she added...there are miracles all around us, we just don't take the time to notice!

May God place a word on your heart today that changes the way your look at the world and also draws you closer to The Living Word!
Relevant Magazine has a good article on The Living Word.
