Hidden Treasures


Reality TV
Reality TV is such an odd title for shows made for television. Immensely popular, they are not known to provide much ‘reality.’  Would you believe there is a glimpse of divine design to be seen in shows such as Junk Gypsies, Pawn Stars, Rehab Addict and even Super Nanny?  Their popularity sprouts from a place deep within us that calls us to uncover treasure.  In a world which chases recognition as a sign of success, a deep longing for intrinsic value to be recognized exists.  Reality TV shows that focus on restoration, whether transforming trash, rehabbing a shabby home or healing broken families, speak a truth we know in the depths of our souls:  true treasures are worthy of time and effort.  That deep longing within us finds its roots in the creation of mankind.
Travel back with me to the Genesis record of creation.  Each day of creation finds God assessing His work with “…and it was good.”   On that last day of creation, when He brought forth man, God said about the day’s work, “…it was very good.”  All of creation expressed the nature of God:

Guided by His Eye!

Hello, my friends!  This week I had the fun of writing about Riesa and Scooby for the Bottom Line...  here's the link and a little piece to let you know if you are interested in the rest :).  By the way, I am in the process of creating new site that I will be sharing with you all soon!  Have a blessed day.

Safety!

The threat of ISIS, the growing dis-taste for Christians...it weighs on my heart that we need to 'toughen up' here in America.  God is not angry with us, but we are placing ourselves in danger if we do not seek to live His ways moment-by-moment.  He is calling us to come closer.  Here's some thoughts on that...what are your thoughts?

In American, Christianity remains a safe choice for most everyone.  It is not so in other areas of our world where refusing to reject Christianity costs your life.  In our safety, we assume we would stand in the face of persecution.  That is a deception the enemy would like us to hold onto.  Just as an athlete cannot be lax in preparation for an Olympic event, we cannot assume our faith will stand in the face of a major test unless we prepare.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Ephesians 6:13
