Mission Field…

I see this sign five days a week…God knows i need lots of reminders!  This sign is posted at both entrance/exits of a church parking lot, where i pull my bus over to wait for about three minutes before heading back on the road for my elementary children.

I’ve been pondering this sign all school year, and each day it takes me by surprise! 😯  ya i know…

Usually when we hear the words “mission field” we think far away…we have fond thoughts of people we know who are also far away serving God, and most often we don’t think of home. Sometimes the mission field is when we step right outside our front door, sometimes leaving the church parking lot, sometimes leaving my bedroom…

i thought about  asking these people where i could get a sign like this…i thought maybe i would put it right inside my front door…but for real…i could use it inside my bedroom door!  a constant reminder that my family is also the mission…

What do you think of when you hear the phrase “mission field”?  Could you use a sign like this too?

needing a heart change

Lord, we need a transformation of our mind, a renewing, a fresh look, a serious heart change.

Life seems to gradually desensitize us, and the wear and tear of daily living is anything but kind.

Its easy to fall into a depressing state of mind, while looking at the news.

Frustrating to watch the most intelligent people in the world try to fix it.

Believers are fighting with believers, and the world watches…and laughs.

People with advice who never leave their same minded circles, can not see.

Its necessity to lift our praises to You.

Praise dances need to fill the room.

Celebrations need to take place, because these are the signs of the times,

YOU are getting ready to come for us, we should be ecstatic!

Refocus us, help us to remember You, its all about You.

You have called us your bride…make us ready for that day!

The Ship is sinking…

My heart has been amazed at the amount of compassion that our LORD shines on us daily. As I go through my day and see so many children who are unloved, forgotten, and just missing the happy skip a child should have…I am reminded.

The world is getting worse, and its supposed to…that means HE is coming soon!  Mothers who can just be so consumed with theirself, and have no compassion on their own children…appalling!  So many who say they don’t believe in anything, and yet they are their own god, self worship!  Oh the long suffering and patience of our HOLY GOD, to not just wipe us out.  This is just the tip of the iceburg, and the ship is sinking…

With each heart ache I feel, I turn and lay it in HIS hands, and watch as HE turns it into something priceless.  When we get to Heaven we will never feel our hearts break again, He is going to wipe every tear away…but until then…

We need to pray for the lost, pray for our hearts to have compassion, and to reach with everything we have and don’t have as if we were watching someone drowning, they are.  We need to feel that kind of desperation in reaching out to the lost.  We know a secret, we are the lights reflecting the Son, its not just ours, its for them as well.  We need to give it away, to shine like crazy! 

Oh Father God, how lost we once were, and in your mercy you rescued us.  Don’t let us forget where we have come from, fill us over and over with your compassion and love, give our spirits an urgency to lose self, and allow you to flow from our lips and actions. 

Laying all the children I come in contact with at your feet, and remembering and believing that you knew them before you formed them in their mothers womb.  You have a plan, and I lift them to you, to protect them, reveal yourself to them, allow them to feel your love tonight, and don’t let them leave here without you.  Thank you for allowing my heart to break..I know you have my attention when that happens, and you always but it back together more in love with YOU.  Your princess who sees the signs, and feels the desperation to keep pressing on.

Authentic Christianity?

Last night I had a Doctors appointment. On my way, I passed a church with this on the sign.. “Authentic Christianity”  just two words that pulled me.  What do you think when looking at those two words?

The other church that I passed had this on their sign… “If you see a Bible that is falling apart, you find a life thats not”… Does this bring any spiritual giants to mind from your life?
