Thankful Thursday 10-15-2020

Thankful Thursday brims with excitement. “Why?” you might ask. Well, tomorrow brings a new addition to our Sunday preparation sharing on social media. Usually on a Friday, you will find a post sharing the title of the message for Sunday along with name of the pastor sharing and the scripture. A link for reading the scripture to prepare your heart and mind is always included too. However this week a new sermon series begins.

The series is called “The Gospel According To Dr. Seuss.” To go along with each week’s sermon, Pastor Dan will read a Dr. Seuss book that ties to the message being shared for the week. If you are not on Facebook or Twitter (the video link will be shared there), no worries! View the readings on our YouTube channel: GravelHillUMC. (Click the link and subscribe to be ready for the upcoming reading each week!)

The comfort of a good story draws us in, reaches our heart, and shares a message that touches the goodness inside each of us. Dr. Seuss crafts tales that do just that. Draw on that goodness connection. In preparation for story time, this girl will get a warm drink to wrap my hands around, a cozy blanket to snuggle under, and my device to watch story time. I hope that you will enjoy these readings too!

Blessings!

Apples

Joyce Lochinger

Miss Joyce

How many of you have visited the apple orchard this fall? It’s the thing to do! I see all kinds of pictures on social media of friends and families going and picking their own apples. If you have gotten to do this, don’t you love how good it smells in an orchard? The sweet delicious fruit has a smell that makes your mouth water.

Of course, there are all of the yummy things that can be made with apples: applesauce, apple fritters, apple juice, apple cider, apple pies, apple cobbler, apple butter. Is your mouth watering yet? I know that mine is!

Did you know that apple trees are not the only living things that produce fruit? I’m sure you know that. You know that there are all kinds of other fruit and vegetable trees and plants that make some delicious treats as well. But, did you know that you can produce fruit too?

A Moment To Praise For Kids 10.13.20 in Scripture

God tells us that we can produce fruit in this scripture: Galatians 5:22-23

This Bible verse tells us that if we have accepted Jesus into our lives and believe in Him, God will give us the fruit of the spirit that others will see clearly in our lives. Look at the list again:

Love

Joy

Peace

Patience

Kindness

Goodness

Faithfulness

Gentleness and

Self-Control

I know as an adult, this list is hard to accomplish every day, all of the time. Fortunately for us, God is always gentle and lovingly working on our hearts to help us get there. Think about it. This list shows us the actions that God demonstrates toward us! Thank goodness He treats us the ways in which He does and not the ways in which we deserve to be treated!

A Moment To Praise For Kids 10.13.20 in Song

Listen to this song, Fruit of the Spirit by Go Fish, and enjoy looking for the fruit of the spirit in your life. See if you can remember them all.

When you’re done listening, you might want to get an adult to help you make a treat from those apples you collect next time you go to the orchard or the store!

Have Fun!

Trust

Disney Movie Quiz anyone? What movie boasts the line, “Do you trust me?”

 

If you said Aladdin, you are correct!

It is hard to trust, isn’t it? Let me give you some examples in which you may not be so trusting. In this political climate, it’s hard to know who is telling the truth and who is not. After each ad, the line “do you trust me?” could be applied. How about when you’re in need of a new vehicle? Picture yourself at a used car lot when you see a car you like. Suddenly, the sales person is giving all the “too good to be true” facts. You might start thinking, “do I trust you?”

A Moment To Praise 10.12.20 in Scripture

I can tell you one place, beyond a shadow of a doubt, in which you can have complete trust! That place is in God and in His Son, Jesus Christ. Let me share with you some scripture that speaks to God’s promises for your life!

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

These are but a few of the promises that God made to us, His people, when we trust in Him and believe in His Son.

At this website, you can read all of His promises as written in the scriptures: https://www.openbible.info/topics/gods_promises

Remember, God is ALWAYS on your side. He is the only thing in this world that is trustworthy and true. People will fail you, politicians will fail you, family members will fail you, religious leaders will fail you. Guess why? It’s because all of those people are human beings. God is not human. In fact, He is far and above our human minds. When you learn to trust in Him and the promises He gives through His Son, Jesus Christ, you will truly be able to say, “Yes Lord, I trust You and You alone to supply all of my needs!” It will definitely be a sweet realization!

Proverbs 3:5-6

A Moment To Praise 10.12.20 in Song

It is sweet when we learn to not follow our own thinking, but rather, to rely on God and trust in Him! Take a listen!

Thankful Thursday 10-8-2020

Thankful Thursday whispers to me to keep it simple. The “it” covers a variety of areas in like including but not limited to tasks, thoughts, and time management. Yes, life gifts us each a multitude of opportunity to say yes, but we humans have limited amounts of energy and time to put towards these places we choose to say “Yes!”

My husband has many saying he shares with me. The following one I have modified slightly: “You can’t put 10 pounds of sugar in a 5 pound bag!” No matter how hard any of us would try, a 5 pound bag will only contain 5 pounds of whatever you put in it.

So as we go through our daily lives, it is SO important to intentionally and carefully select to what we say “Yes” in our lives (and to what we say “No”.) If struggling to figure out where to say “Yes”, follow the words of wisdom from Paul in his letter to the Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Still not sure? Keep seeking God through prayer. Read His Word. He will reveal the sweetness He has in store for your life.

Blessings!
