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.

The Bottom Line


What’s He Looking At?

Guide with eye
It was the second week of horse training.  Quietly the trainer explained, “Today we will teach him that where you look, he must move.”  I had never heard of such a thing and watched with interested amusement.  Within five minutes, amusement turned to awe.  By then the diminutive trainer had helped the horse understand what she wanted.  As she leaned to the right and stared at the horses’ hindquarters, the 1200 pound beast began to pivot in a circle, moving only his hind end.  “You see.  As soon as he understood what I was asking, he did it,” she casually explained.
My mind immediately thought of two scriptures—and my frequent failure ....

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

Prayers that Produce!


Here's a piece of the whole article, which you can read here if you prefer :)

This week Franklin Graham (www.SamaritansPurse.org) and other national and international organizations issued special calls to prayer on Pastor Saeed’s behalf.   In support of those requests and the multitude of needs in our world, an honest look at prayer weighs on my heart. Prayer is something we know we should do but like the father in scripture, sometimes we want to cry, “I believe, help me in my unbelief.” We know thousands prayed passionately for the ISIS captives recently murdered. We know millions have prayed, ‘thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,’ yet we see evidence of God’s will not being done every day. Countering those dreary, seeming truths, we know Jesus promised, ‘Ask anything in my name and it will be done.’ In fact, His name is “Yes and Amen.” Our key, then, is to ask in His name and know that greater things are happening that what we see.
