Back in 2005, someone had sent me the potato chips and God story that just flows with today’s word bless 🙂

A little boy wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with a bag of potato chips and a six-pack of root beer and started his journey.

When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old woman. She was sitting in the park, just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down next to her and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old lady looked hungry, so he offered her some chips. She gratefully accepted it and smiled at him. Her smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it again, so he offered her a root beer. Again, she smiled at him. The boy was delighted! They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling, but they never said a word.

As twilight approached, the boy realized how tired he was and he got up to leave; but before he had gone more than a few steps, he turned around, ran back to the old woman, and gave her a hug. She gave him her biggest smile ever.

When the boy opened the door to his own house a short time later, his mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face. She asked him, “What did you do today that made you so happy?”

He replied, “I had lunch with God.” But before his mother could respond, he added, “You know what? She’s got the most beautiful smile I’ve ever seen!”

Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her home. Her son was stunned by the look of peace on her face and he asked, “Mother, what did you do today that made you so happy?” She replied! “I ate potato chips in the park with God.” However, before her son responded, she added, “You know, he’s much younger than I expected.”

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime! Embrace all equally!

Have lunch with God…….bring chips.

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Scams

My fellow bloggers, please join me in praying for all the single men and women duped by scams on the Internet.
Thank you Lord Jesus for giving me the courage to reach out to Saints in prayer for all single men and women duped by scams via the Internet. It is my faith that you can touch all of us to unite in prayer giving all single men and women out there the peace and dignity to move on without anyone’s judgement. It is unfortunate that it happened and it is our prayer that you move in a mighty way to heal and love us through this unfortunate time. Lead us to open up and not carry the burden. Lead us to forgive so we can move on, in Jesus name, I pray, Amen

Continued comments on Forgiveness

The deeper the Word of God is in us, the easier we can let go of stuff we are not supposed to carry. The Word of God is so powerful that our choice to speak it, live it, want it and share it keeps us walking in the spirit and denying our flesh.
It always comes down to choosing. Choosing to be more like Jesus.
Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
1 Peter 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Forgive, Forgiven and Forgiveness

The ability or choice to forgive, be forgiven and offer forgiveness requires a spiritual connection and grace from God. We can all relate that in life, stuff happens and each of us has a story we could tell.

Forgiveness is for us–let go of (fill in the blank) and let God! Some things we hold onto keeps us from moving forward. Keeps us stuck! Let it go, release it to God by faith and watch what He will do.

When God is taking us through the fiery furnace, molding and shaping to put the fruits of the spirit in us so that we are more like His Son Jesus; let’s just say, He gets His way eventually 🙂 sooner or later we get tired of going around the same mountain.

There are vile and horrible things happening all around us to people who don’t know God or that He loves them. As children of God, we are to show them God–through our life style, speech–the fruits of the spirit and none of this is possible if we can’t forgive.

God takes care of those who mistreat His children.

God is always in charge. He is always the same.

Change

Sometimes we don’t like change. Change requires moving forward in spite of the challenge to remain still. When you let go and let God, change can be a beautiful thing 🙂
