Wisdom

Thankful Thursday focuses on advice. From where I sit, I can hear my husband sharing a bit of wisdom with one of our sons. Our son will choose to either heed that advice or not. The information has been given and the decision of action is now his just as Proverbs 12:15 shares: “The way of fools seems right to them,
    but the wise listen to advice.”

Yesterday as I shared a situation I was facing with a friend, she shared some advice with me. I heeded that advice and ooze with gratitude because of it. The wisdom greatly benefitted me. She truly fulfilled the Proverbs 27:9 scripture: “Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice.”

If you face a tough decision or situation, take a moment to read Proverb 3. Think about friends grounded in Jesus and the principles He teaches. Seek their advice. As a result, you too may greatly ooze with gratitude from what they share.

Blessings to you!

Daily Connection

Thankful Thursday sits in the midst of summer. It observes the comings and goings all around from weather to families to sunrises & sunsets. Much shifting and change surrounds us, but a steady undercurrent of movement provides direction towards new horizons.

Each day as we rise and spend time in scripture, we find one way in which the Lord provides daily for us. In Luke 11:3, we read “Give us each day our daily bread.” One of the keys with this scripture is that this is a request from us to God. So we have to actively have a conversation with God (often referred to as prayer.) God is our steady undercurrent, always there through the changes happening in our lives.

Daily, the biggest question we need to ask ourselves: “Where do we turn for help?” When we turn to our ever present God, He hears us. When went enter into communication and relationship with Him, rejoicing occurs. Bring the joy by getting together with God for all parts of your life.

Blessings to you!

Friends

Thankful Thursday sees gratitude for my friends flowing from my heart. On Sunday, many people came together to enjoy the delicious food from Stuff’D Steaks and Sunset Slush, hear some delightful entertainment from Jake Nguyen, and support the Caring Cupboard with donations. It felt invigorating to be a part of something bigger than me working towards a collective good.

Throughout this week I’ve continued to help and receive help from friends. With small project and bigger group project, other people and myself have been blessed through friends helping friends. What a gift we have through friendship! When you are able to come together to celebrate the good, cheer each other on, and lift each other up during the tough and difficult times, both the sunshine and the rain of life come together to in these beautiful rainbow gems called friendship.

Want an example from the Bible about friendship? Read about David and Jonathan. Through thick and thin they were there for each other.

Take a moment to think about your friendships. Building friendships grounded in God edify each of you. Thank you God for the blessings of God-grounded friendships!

Blessings to you!

Fellowship, Food, & Fun

Thankful Thursday counts down the days to Gravel Hill’s first Food Truck Fellowship coming this Sunday. The excitement builds as preparations get underway for the big day. The food, the music, and fun of fellowshipping together all await with anticipation the approach of the coming day.

During the services, we will celebrate with baptisms, music, and worshipping as a body of believers. By 11 am, the food trucks and fun will await the fellowship of friends coming together to enjoy good food and conversations. I will enjoy watching the kids have a fun time on the bouncy house and playground! Throughout the entire event a collection of donated items will be taking place for the Caring Cupboard. Some specific needs the Caring Cupboard currently has includes: Size 4 Diapers, Size 6 Diapers, Beef Ramen Noodles, Canned Oranges, Baking Soda

Good food, good fun, and a good cause all rolled in to one event of celebration. I can’t wait for Sunday! Hopefully, I’ll get to see you there. And the more the merrier and greater support for the Caring Cupboard so invite your friends and family to join in the fun!

Light and Water

Thankful Thursday welcomes the rains after several hot dry days. As I look at the plant life, grass, and trees around our home as the rains come down, I can almost see the deepening of color thanks to the long-awaited drink from the skies. Life and growth require both light and water.

As I see this truth play out in the physical elements of the world, my mind turns to the lessons of the recent sermons series: I AM. The series had highlights of Jesus being the Light of the World (John 8: 1-12) and how He is The Way, The Truth, and the Life (John 14:1-14). As the One True Vine (John 15:1-11) connecting us to God through the Resurrection (John 11:17-27), He offers us the gift of the Holy Spirit. As Children of God (1 John 3:1-10), we acknowledge each of these truths by looking to Jesus (the Light) and being attentive to the moving of the Holy Spirit (the Water) to allow God’s glory to shine through us in the way that He specifically designed.

The collision of light and water in our spiritual lives creates a beauty that will be breath-taking. So nurture your spirit with time in scripture and prayer with the Lord. The beauty of your spirit will only add to the amazing kaleidoscope of God’s creation and blessings. Enjoy this process of growth through the light and water.

Blessings to you!
