Hey Pastor,Like you say give God His "WORDS" back--
Steven Killpatrick reminds us how the Cheap Grace mindset can ruin our lives and drive us away from God.

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

What starts out as a simple thought may ultimately determine our destiny, even our eternal destiny.

The writer of the above statement must have heard or read the words of Solomon found in Proverbs 23:7: "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he."

Our thoughts reflect the person we really are. If we have thoughts which are hateful, they will manifest themselves as words--actions--habits.

If, however, we fill our hearts with positive things, can anything but good actions result?

Paul summed it up rightly when he wrote in Philippians 4:8, (NIV) "Finally, brothers, 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."

Think about "these things." If we occupy our time on thoughts concerning "these things," it cannot help but result in an eternal destiny with God the Father. We are what we think.

In addition, don't give up on thinking about God's promises to you.

Just passing on something

Changing Your Thoughts

Romans 12:2 - And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Penny for your thoughts? Ever heard that expression? And when someone asks you the chances are you will try to evade telling them what you were really thinking. Our thoughts are very private things, and most of the time we would rather not have other people know what they contain. Why is this?

I'll tell you why. It is because our thoughts are usually filled with things that we should not be thinking. If I were to let people know what went through my mind, they would get a good idea of the sin that is in my life. And I need to hide that at all costs. So I hide the private moments of sin that I enjoy in my mind.

But why are our thoughts so filled with wickedness? Why do we have a problem keeping our minds on the right things? Partly because of the world we live in. You switch on the TV and you are bombarded with lust, murder and greed. So what occupies your mind? It is the things you feed into it.

Paul tells us that we need to break free of the way the world tries to squeeze us into its mould. You need to be transformed or changed, he says. And this can only take place when you have a renewed mind. So the big question is, "How do I renew my mind?" That's a good question and the answer is likely to take a lot of space, so I am going to give you the abridged version.

If you take a bowl of muddy water and start to pour fresh water into it, the muddy water starts to overflow. Keep this up for a long time and gradually the muddy water starts to clear. Eventually all dirt is displaced, and the water in the bowl comes clean. Of course it would be easier to just empty the bowl and pour clean water in, but that would not suit our illustration as you will see.

Your mind is like that bowl of muddy water. It is contaminated by the things that have been fed into it. You cannot empty it, so the only way you can purge it is to keep feeding into it, things that are pure and clean. And what better source of clean water is there than the water of the Word. You do this by the process of meditation. And you do it often and over and over again, until eventually the mud starts to leave and the water starts to clear.

Then, when your thoughts start to become clean, you will find yourself thinking on the good and pure things that Paul speaks about in Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things [are] honest, whatever things [are] just, whatever things [are] pure, whatever things [are] lovely, whatever things [are] of good report; if [there is] any virtue, and if [there is] any praise, think about these things.

Then the next time someone asks you, "Penny for your thoughts?" they might get a surprise. They will find you telling them what you are really thinking. And the chances are they will get ministered to in the process also. They might even be sorry they asked.

Just a note to post and encourage God's people.

When you carry a Bible, the devil gets a headache. When you open it, he collapses. When he sees you reading it, he faints. When he sees you living it.....................he flees. And just when your about to re-post this, he will try & discourage you.
Pass it on.

Just passing on a good resourceful message I received :

Direction in Reading and Searching the Scriptures
by Thomas Boston

1. Follow a regular plan in reading of them, that you may be acquainted with the whole; and make this reading a part of your private devotions. Not that you should confine yourselves only to a set plan, so as never to read by choice, but ordinarily this tends most to edification. Some parts of the Bible are more difficult, some may seem very barren for an ordinary reader; but if you would look on it all as God's word, not to be scorned, and read it with faith and reverence, no doubt you would find advantage.
2. Set a special mark, however you find convenient, on those passages you read, which you find most suitable to your case, condition, or temptations; or such as you have found to move your hearts more than other passages. And it will be profitable often to review these.
3. Compare one Scripture with another, the more obscure with that which is more plain, 2 Pet. 1:20. This is an excellent means to find out the sense of the Scriptures; and to this good use serve the marginal notes on Bibles. And keep Christ in your eye, for to him the scriptures of the Old Testament look (in its genealogies, types, and sacrifices), as well as those of the New.
4. Read with a holy attention, arising from the consideration of the majesty of God, and the reverence due to him. This must be done with attention, first, to the words; second, to the sense; and, third, to the divine authority of the Scripture, and the obligation it lays on the conscience for obedience, 1 Thess. 2:13, "For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe."
5. Let your main purpose in reading the Scriptures be practice, and not bare knowledge, James 1:22, "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves." Read that you may learn and do, and that without any limitation or distinction, but that whatever you see God requires, you may study to practice.
6. Beg of God and look to him for his Spirit. For it is the Spirit that inspired it, that it must be savingly understood by, 1 Cor 2:11, "For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God." And therefore before you read, it is highly reasonable you beg a blessing on what you are to read.
7. Beware of a worldly, fleshly mind: for fleshly sins blind the mind from the things of God; and the worldly heart cannot favour them. In an eclipse of the moon, the earth comes between the sun and the moon, and so keeps the light of the sun from it. So the world, in the heart, coming between you and the light of the word, keeps its divine light from you.
8. Labour to be disciplined toward godliness, and to observe your spiritual circumstances. For a disciplined attitude helps mightily to understand the scriptures. Such a Christian will find his circumstances in the word, and the word will give light to his circumstances, and his circumstances light into the word.
9. Whatever you learn from the word, labour to put it into practice. For to him that has, shall be given. No wonder those people get little insight into the Bible, who make no effort to practice what they know. But while the stream runs into a holy life, the fountain will be the freer.

The Pit

A man fell into a pit and couldn't get himself out.

A subjective person came along and said,
"I feel for you down there."

An objective person walked by and said,
"It's logical that someone would fall down there."

A Pharisee said, "Only bad people fall into pits."

A mathematician calculated how deep the pit was.

A news reporter wanted the exclusive story on the pit.

A self-pitying person said,
"You haven't seen anything until you've seen my pit."

A fire-and-brimstone preacher said,
"You deserve your pit."

A Christian Scientist observed,
"The pit is just in your mind."

A psychologist noted,
"Your mother and father are to
blame for your being in that pit."

A self-esteem therapist said,
"Believe in yourself and you can get out of that pit."

An optimist said, "Things could be worse."

A pessimist claimed, "Things will get worse."

Jesus, seeing the man,
took him by the hand and lifted him out of the pit.

Hey Passcee,

Passing on my inspiration for the day
Your nugget from yesterday connection

Living Waters

Consider a gentle stream says the Lord. A gentle body of water moving slowly through the riverbed. It brings a peace with it and it draws you to rest a while. This is a picture of my presence.
There are times in your life, when you need to experience the power of the waterfall. And this you can experience any time in a meeting or in a revival. However it is the slow and steady stream that feeds your spirit and brings you life.
It is this still stream inside of you that wail give you the strength that you need to walk in this world. So stop looking around you and outside for things to meet your need. Rather stop and sip of the gentle waters that run inside of you.
If you just remain quiet for a while and tap into your spirit, you will find me there. Talking and encouraging you. Giving you direction and showing you the truths in my Word. Look inside of you child! You are carrying the answers you need around with you.
There are many who can give you wisdom and counsel, but it is my still small voice and my gentle presence that will always be there to guide you and to feed you. So take hold of that now. Take a moment to drink of the living waters that I have given to you.
Taste of me and see that I am very good. I will meet your need and bring peace to your heart. I will be with you and never forsake you. I will not let you go or disappoint you. Your answer is right within your spirit. Drink of me this day and walk out full of my peace, joy and love.

Hey Passcee,
Take a look at this, can you figure it out. This was sent to me.

It's not really a Christian joke, but you'll have fun anyway. In the paragraph below there are the names of 16 books of the Bible. See how many you can find.

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu; kept people looking so hard for facts?and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized. But the truth finally struck home to numbers of our readers. To others it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so that she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now, for there really are sixteen names of books of the Bible in this paragraph.

Hey Passcee,
I was reflecting back on my notes from Sunday's message: Thirsting for God. What caught my eye is "watch your dry places" so I started thinking a dry place: a darkness, a valley, a inactive state, no motivation, a sort of mourning. Yea a thought a state of depression. So what came to me is "Spiritual Depression"- and so I looked it up sure enough the writer said this is a state were few recognize that they are experiencing it because they are still somewhat functioning outside of their normal realm of the work of the Lord. Spiritual (Depression) is one of the most common ailments, and the antidote for depression is to meditate on the record of God's goodness to his people (Ps 42:5,6) Everything that God has done for me was good- and it felt good to let Him know that again in service. We must learn to focus our thoughts MORE on God's ability to help us rather than on our inability to help ourselves. Like David I had to remember, I was telling someone the other day, that I feel my strength coming back.
It is so true when you take(read) the Psalm's antidepressant (NIV) we feel MUCH better. Thank God for His sweet (desert) of Grace & Mercy, with a side of Patience and Peace and a take home serving of LOVE.while He waits on us to come out the dark place.
Thanks for the "WORD"

Passcee, got something for you,

Here is the story in short: A boy went to pick black-berries with his mother and aunt, he had the smallest bucket. While the others worked he decided to play and explore. When it was nearly time to go, the boy stuffed his small bucket with moss and a few black-berries so that his pail could look full. His mother and aunt praised him for his efforts. The next day, the mother decided to reward his efforts so she made the boy a saucer-size pie. He saw that the pie was just for him, he
could not wait until it cooled, for black-berries where his favorite, he could see the plump berries oozing through the slits in the pie crust. Finally it was time,as his mouth watered he sunk is fork in the pie and discovered it was full of mostly moss.
The moral:
Many people want to experience the fullness of God's promises in their lives, but they are unwilling to do the work that goes along with most of the Bibles promises. most of God's promises are IF- then statements.... if we do one thing, God will do another. Our part nearly always come first.
Second wow;
Too many churchgoers are singing "Standing on the Promises" when all they are doing is sitting on the premises.
Hebrews 6:12
Pastor Linda sent me a message so during my response and nearly the end the spirit came upon me and had me to tell her He had a lot to say IF only.....
2 Chronicles 7:14 IF MY PEOPLE....... God is talking

Hey Passcee,
Take a look at this

The two thousand member Baptist church was filled to overflowing capacity one Sunday morning. The preacher was ready to start the sermon when two men, dressed in long black coats and black hats entered through the rear of the church.

One of the two men walked to the middle of the church while the other stayed at the back of the church. They both then reached under their coats and withdrew automatic weapons.

The one in the middle announced, "Everyone willing to take a bullet for Jesus stay in your seats!"

Naturally, the pews emptied, followed by the choir. The deacons ran out the door, followed by the choir director and the assistant pastor.

After a few moments, there were about twenty people left sitting in the church. The preacher was holding steady in the pulpit.

The men put their weapons away and said, gently, to the preacher, "All right, pastor, the hypocrites are gone now. You may begin the service."

I just said

Today in Sunday School: a sidebar came up about "Discipline" a comment was made on how society have pounded in our minds about discipline = punishment, in fact from a biblical stand point it really is = to training Pastor said. Training the individual to do better, to understand better, to follow the rules better, lets go further to be better. In a book by Carol Larsen, she writes: discipline depends on the mood of the person that is engaging in the act (the giver).So in reality if God is the giver of the discipline it is really a blessing, why because it moves you forward in your process of becoming more like Christ. God's discipline helps us grow into all the possibilities He sees for us. Thanks for the revelation Pastor.
