The Path?

Image
I read this saying: the other day:  "does the traveller choose  the path, , or does the path chose the traveller?"
  Good question, I thought to myself thinking about what the answer should be. Then popped into my head another saying: "if you don't plan the hunt your just waking in the woods". 
 So after much mental debate  I concluded that however easy it might be to just let the path chosen for me  I would think God would have me choosing the right path being lead by the Holy Spirit to join Him in what His plan for my future may be. 
 So I ask myself am I even on the right path? did I chose this Path? did God? I then thought well I will give my will and my Life over to God so that "He will make my path straight" and I will enjoy what comes along the path today and be thankful for all the blessings in my life, I will take the path before me one step at a time and try just to do the next right indicated thing.
 Today I pray my path takes me into the sunli…

The Lost son

Image
Take a look at what many consider the greatest story ever told: The story of the Lost Son. “There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them. Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living.” You see, this son couldn’t care less about his father; all he wants is his money. “After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he begun to be in need.” Hard times have come, and men are out of work. Famine has set in the city. Eventually he finds a job, feeding pigs, but no one gives him anything, and he is forced to eat the pigs’ food. He finally comes to his senses and says, “I will set out and go back to my Father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired me…

To be a "Overcomer"

Image
Wow, I was in Church today and they read off a list of where people might be at in their life or things they are  going through and I was astounded at all the things God has brought me through in this life's journey so far, I know I have a long way to go, but thank God I am not were I was.
 I am in a new season in my life, working a different kind of job, Kids gone, grandchildren to Love, Life has become so much more manageable now that I just do my best to let God work things out and  and trust in His will.
So what do we do to be a overcomer? Well we must have a thankful heart, Pray and most important never give up! Sometimes we can struggle for many years and still find ourself waiting for victory over something or another in our lives. It is certainly a progression on a long journey  not a one time event, I believe we will forever be learning and growing for I realize the more I know the more I know little. There is always a new level.

The Alien has Landed!

God has been so Good, He has answered our prayers,  the time of waiting is over (for now). It's been a long season of waiting, thought it would never end. All the answers weren't what we wanted   but God Knows exactly what He is doing and working all things to Good for His Glory with His Perfect timing not mine which is shortsighted anyway.
 Well to be more specific we didn't win the court battle we waited and appealed for, that would have gotten our finances turned around and then some, I did get a job that is way different  then I would have ever thought or imagined. I first was led to volunteer when I heard about this place through our Church, then applied to work there when I saw they had an opening. So am now working in the inner city of Edmonton, Canada with the homeless, street and people in crises of life with great need and are in transition. I am working at a place called The Mustard Seed  as a "Street level worker" The Mustard  Seed is a multifaceted n…

Today I am so Thankful, my gratefulness to God is over flowing, After waiting over 3 yr I now have been approved by  Immigration, I am now both a US Citizen as well as a Canadian Landed Immigrant!
 After looking and applying for jobs for a very long time, applying day after day on line with only a few interview's out of hundreds of applications and no call  backs, I have been given a Gift from God, my heart desire to work for a ministry and with people in need, building relationships and being right where God can use me,  I can Join God in what he is doing there in the lives of broken and people that are in need and hurting in the large inner city of Edmonton 
 Also I am very thankful for my wife and all her praying for me, for living in north America were we are so blessed with the convenience of every day life.
and that God has given us more then every thing we need. (not every thing we want) Personally I will work on being even more Thankful to God and to Worship Him and give Him …

My youngest daughter lives with my sister and her husband (In the U.S.A.) far away from were I live, (In Canada) I haven't seen here in a year, I wanted so much to be there for her and spend some time together (but I haven't found a way to afford air fare at this time:) I miss her so much she is such a special little princes and growing up so fast. She has been working with Horses and has a way with them, its been good therapy for her. I will keep praying for the funds to go see her and with God all things are possible!, I talk to her on the phone but not as much as I would like to.
 She is with a wonderful Christian family that Love Jesus and Have a Biblical world view so are values are the same, She has always been in a good Loving environment.
 She has some mental and developmental struggles which can   be very overwhelming to anyone she is involved with  and I can never express how deeply thankful I am to my sister an her family for all they have done and are doing for he…

"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another;as I have loved you,that ye also love one another."
 Hello world I know I haven't done much blogging lately, I Have been to busy, even obsessed  at getting my computer to work optimally with Google Chrome.
 It was very  busy at the food bank on Thursday, and last Monday at the coffee bar,  where  I volunteer with the Mustard seed, It is so awesome to work for God and to be a part of a team who wants to show and share Gods Love by serving and building relationships in the community,  Joining with God in what He wants to do around and through us if we just surrender to His will. I Love being in unity with the purposes of the Kingdom of heaven.
 I have been waiting all week for a answer to a job opportunity,  I really  feel like its were God has called me ("For such a time as this") so I could use some prayer. Thanks!!! to those led by the Holy Spirit to Pray for the saints and the workers involved in His H…
