Things are really difficult right now with illness and strife going on across the US and the world. Sometimes we are part of that problem and can make things even more difficult for ourselves and those around us, if we are honest.
We have all heard the phrase “Let Go and Let God”, but nowhere in the Bible does it say that. God expects us to take charge of our lives and not just lay back and hope for the best. Paul told Timothy to “Fight the good fight and take hold of the eternal life to which he was called. God didn’t say just hang out and see what happens. There is also a verse that states “cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you”. That is very much an action verse.
God wants you to trust Him and He also wants you to look out for yourself. Certainly God is in charge and His will be done, but we have a role in life to play as well. In Ephesians we are told to put on the armor of God and stand against the schemes of the devil. That seems pretty clear that God wants us fully engaged in this life he gave us. “Let go and let God”: that’s kind of like giving up, really.
It’s important to be out there every day, engaged, living our lives, working to make a difference and helping others around us. Whatever we have going on in our lives there are almost certainly others out there in less fortunate circumstances. Think how well they’d sleep if they just knew they had a meal coming for their kids tomorrow. Think how well you’d sleep if you knew you had guided and encouraged someone with hope, trust and belief. All pretty heady words but true and they are things God wants us to do.
Some ways that we know what God wants us to be doing is through reading His Word, praying and listening. All of those things help us to walk out this life in His will. I encourage you to be strong, engaged and look after each other. We have to keep going- we are not finished until we reach heaven.

No one likes correction. It doesn’t matter who you are. No one wakes up in the morning and says to themselves, “Wow. I hope I find out how wrong I am today and that someone will correct me for it.” Then you read books like Proverbs in the Bible and it seems like every other verse is about not only the importance, but the power of correction in the life of a believer.
There is no greater book on the face of the earth than the Bible. God set it up and structured it to give us advise, comfort, direction, purpose. To give our lives and walks with Jesus meaning and eternal value. If we are not reading the Bible everyday then we are missing out on wonderful opportunities to be challenged to grow beyond what our mind can conceive.
I read Proverbs 10 today and there was a verse (and word) that stuck out to me.
17 Whoever heeds discipline shows the way to life,
but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.
That word “heeds” means to pay attention to or pay CLOSE attention to. To recognize that something is important enough to pause and consider how that information needs to be integrated into life.
So the emphasis and importance is not just on BEING corrected but in HEEDING correction/discipline in life. Anyone can be corrected but the value from that correction comes from taking to heart and applying what we are presented with in life. Being in church ministry for over 25 years I have seen lots of people who are good at saying they recognize the need for correction and even say they receive correction but don’t do anything practical in their lives to prove a change. If we receive correction then we will be intentional about letting that discipline modify our behavior. I have even been guilty of saying that I understood correction in my life but not doing anything to prove that changes had been made.
Even taking a step back further, the lack of heeding correction can ultimately come from thinking that you are above correction and that you already know just about everything in life, which is impossible and destructive.
I can remember my first interaction with Marilyn Hickey as the services and communications pastor for our church. Part of my duties as the service coordinator was to do reviews for her when she would preach. I can remember our first interaction after a sermon she had preached and she asked me how she did. I told her, “Marilyn, you have been preaching for longer than I have been alive. What am I going to tell you that you don’t already know?” She proceeded to tell me that everyone can get better at preaching/public speaking no matter their age and once you feel like you don’t need that help is the first day you started getting worse at presenting. That was over ten years ago and it has stuck with me to this day. If the world evangelist Marilyn Hickey (who is now 89 years young) thinks that SHE can get better at her presentation skills and is not above correction, then surely I can keep an “open mind and closed mouth” when it comes to correction in my life.
Today, look to the power and importance of correction in life. In fact, maybe even seek out ways to get better at what you do personally AND professionally. When we are people of correction, we put ourselves in a place of being the best version of who God created us to be. Reading the Bible is a huge part of that equation but so is listening to the people around us that love us and want us to succeed in life. Have a great week and know that God is for you and not against you ~ in everything you do.

I say “hi” to butterflies when I’m out in the garden working. There are so many shapes and sizes and colors. They’re just beautiful and flit around from here to there with nowhere to go, and no time restraints. That is, except, the Monarch butterfly. God sends them on a huge round trip for thousands of miles each year. From Canada, through the United States and down into Mexico, Monarchs have been migrating along these routes for an untold number of years.
These are insects, bugs if you will, and yet God has made them beautiful and given them purpose. Maybe not quite as good as bees, but butterflies certainly do their fair share to help pollinate fruits and crops. Their beauty certainly makes up for any lack in efficiency. The Monarch goes through great changes in their life cycle. From a tiny egg, to a caterpillar, then a chrysalis and then finally a beautiful butterfly. It’s called metamorphosis, and as God transforms a butterfly He also transforms us.
Dean Taylor notes in one of his writings that when we ask the Lord into our lives He changes us, transforms us into the person He wants us to be become. Our life is changed and when we keep the Lord in our hearts, our friends and family can actually tell the difference in us. Our outlook certainly changes, our feelings and expectations change and maybe we carry that new found hope and joy on the outside as well!
Help a friend or loved one or even a stranger to know God’s Love and salvation and see if you can’t help but see a transformation in them!

“I think we’re alone, now. There doesn’t seem to be anyone around.”
In the words of the 80's song from Tiffany, I guess they’re alone together?
We keep seeing the hashtag #AloneTogether, this has quite a different meaning in our current world.
Are we ever really alone?
When you are alone, at least by yourself, aren’t you really alone with your own thoughts? Can you ever just shut off your thinking or clear your mind? Or, do you keep talking to yourself, chastising yourself, remembering the day, even reprimanding yourself for things you’ve ever said or done and just can’t get over it or forgive yourself? Things happen. We are going to make mistakes or say the wrong thing or even hurt someone’s feelings or worse.
Can you ever just listen for the voice of God to come to you in your mind and into your heart? Psalm 46 tells us that “God is our refuge and our strength and a very present help in trouble.” Terrible things can happen; a loss of a loved one, loss of a job, a pandemic even and, yet, God gives us strength to carry on.
Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything…”
God is with us even when we are caught up in worry or fear or regret. God loves us and forgives us and gives us His hand, His strength, His courage to make it through the difficult times, the scary times, even when we can’t see a way forward. The help of God is greater than any crisis that could happen. Psalm 46, “Be still and know that I am God”
Isaiah 41:10. “Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed for I am your God, I will strengthen you, I will help you.”
You’ll never be alone when you ask God into your life. He is right there. Trust Him and open His word to see what He has to say. He has good plans for you (Jeremiah 29:11)
