What God initiates He sustains.

Shelley Hendrix, author and speaker, spoke to our Christian Authors Guild (CAG) a few months ago. One statement she made has really stayed with me. Shelley said that Pastor Jim Law counseled her when embarking on her ministry, Church4Chicks, "If God initiates it, He sustains it. If you initiate your ministry, you must sustain it."

A few weeks later in my devotional time I read from Acts 5:38-39, "... if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourself fighting against God." Reminded me of Shelley's comments.

Whiter than snow #2

What is whiter than snow? Can't think of anything - we bleach garments, but bleaching appears a tad yellow.
Still thinking what is whiter than snow . . .

Whiter than snow?

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow." Isaiah 1:18.

It is refreshing to know that my sins are washed white as snow. Our Creator is an exquisite artist as fresh snow covers over the drab brown of winter. Beautiful!

First Full Week of Work

Well, it's Friday - TGIF. Traffic has been horrendous this week. Being concerned for those involved in the accidents, causing our slow to stopped traffic, is sometimes off my radar. I have to remind myself that it is only a delay for me and much more for those involved in the mishap. Pray that God will tenderize my heart for others and focus my mind on Him during these long commutes.

Sister Hugs

It was great meeting my sister at ATL airport for her layover from Haiti. She was exhausted and sick with a cold. She shared about seeing children with limbs missing, parents searching for their spouse, critically ill - 24 hour shift and sleeping in a tent on the roof of the hospital. She said it was good to see people from many different countries working together. She said it was interesting sharing medicine from other countries - needing a translator to interprete and make sure they had the correct meds. Thank you, sis, for giving of your time, treasurers and talents to help Haitians.
