One minute with God: Dose of Good
Have you found yourself overwhelmed, exhausted, and even confused lately. How about pained with personal failures or tragedies? Many people from all walks of life and even professions face the daily realities of personal shortcomings. We all wrestle with those voices in our heads that remind us of our broken past, current calamities, or uncertain future. Like a good nutritional diet or perhaps like possessing front role tickets to a Bon Jovi concert you, and I must take some time in our day to have a “dose of good”. We can’t continue to add fuel to an unwanted fire, nor should we continue to drink spiritually bitter grapefruit if there is a fresh glass of cold water at the table. Just like your body needs tending to continue it’s lifelong course - so does your “spirit man”. You and I must begin our day with the Good news that God is present, He is willing, and He is able. Leave your loaded sack of failures and burdens in His hands, and take on a new day. For every good, and perfect thing comes from God. A Dose of God. James 16-18 16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
