Thanksgiving is a time of quiet reflection upon the past and an annual reminder that God has, again, been ever so faithful.  The solid and simple things of life are brought into clear focus, so much so that everything else fades into insignificance.

Too Much Stuff

... a truth that I've know for a long, long time: Hoarding will never make us happy. Keeping the best for ourselves dulls the shine of all we possess. Refusing to share makes abundance seem paltry.

Father, show me how to let go and use my gifts to brighten the lives of others.

I Can't Hear You

Next time you think you hear nothing in response to your prayers, don't assume that God isn't listening. He may simply want you to rest in His shadow until he reveals His answer. When you hear a direct no, remind yourself there will always be a better yes.

Holy Bible

If somebody claims that you have to take the Bible literally, word for word, or not at all, ask him if you have to take John the Baptist literally when he calls Jesus the Lamb of God.

Heavenly Father, thank you that when everything around me seems to be in turmoil and chaos, you are my light and my salvation. Instead of allowing fear to overwhelm me, I put my trust in you, knowing that I will see your goodness in the land of the living.  I am strong in you and take heart in your promises. Fill me with joy.

What is my destiny, my purpose?
What am I supposed to do with my life?
These are hard questions.
Even if we believe our life's purpose is to do God's will, we still have to figure out what that is, what that means.
