Daily Meditation - Under the Grace of God

True ambition is not what we thought it was. True ambition is the deep desire to live usefully and walk humbly under the grace of God.

Daily Meditation - Christ within you

[Consider the following and Christ within you]
 
To have my voice, but Him speaking
My Steps, but Christ leading
My heart, but His love beating
in me, through me , with me
What's it like to have Christ on the inside?
 
To tap His strength when mine expires
or feel the force of heaven's fires
raging, purging wrong desires
Could Christ become my entire self?
 
So much Him, so little me
that in my eyes it's Him they see
What's it like to a Mary be?
No longer I ,but Christ in me.

Daily Meditation – Seeking God’s Will and Giving Thanks

[Consider the following guidance from the apostle Paul in his letter to the Ephesians. Perhaps, consider a visual and feel of actually being in his presence and having him tell these words directly to you]

Watch carefully then how you live , not as foolish persons but as wise, making the most of the opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not continue in ignorance, but try to understand what is the will of the Lord. And do not get drunk on wine, in which lies debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another (in) psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and praying to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks always and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.”

- Ephesians 5: 15 – 20

Daily Meditation – Letting God Care for our Troubles – The Tree

I hired a plumber to help me restore an old farmhouse, and after he had just finished a rough first day on the job: a flat tire made him lose an hour of work, his electric drill quit and his ancient one ton truck refused to start.

While I drove him home, he sat in stony silence. On arriving, he invited me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused briefly at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands.

When opening the door he underwent an amazing transformation. His face was wreathed in smiles and he hugged his two small children and gave his wife a kiss.

Afterward he walked me to the car. We passed the tree and my curiosity got the better of me. I asked him about what I had seen him do earlier.

“Oh, that's my trouble tree.” He replied “I know I can't help having troubles on the job, but one thing's for sure, those troubles don't belong in the house with my wife and the children. So I just hang them up on the tree every night when I come home and ask God to take care of them. Then in the morning I pick them up again.”

“Funny thing is,” he smiled,” when I come out in the morning to pick 'em up, there aren't nearly as many as I remember hanging up the night before.”

God Bless, Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

We all Need a Tree!

Daily Meditation – Faith in healing

When he had finished all his words to the people, he entered Capernaum. A centurion there had a slave who was ill and about to die, and he was valuable to him. When he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and save the life of his slave. They approached Jesus and strongly urged him to come, saying, "He deserves to have you do this for him, for he loves our nation and he built the synagogue for us." And Jesus went with them, but when he was only a short distance from the house, the centurion sent friends to tell him, "Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof. Therefore, I did not consider myself worthy to come to you; but say the word and let my servant be healed. For I too am a person subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come here,' and he comes; and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does it." When Jesus heard this he was amazed at him and, turning, said to the crowd following him, "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith."

- Luke 6:27-36
