Food For Thought 1

“Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.” Matthew 6:6 MSG

Everyone wants to find God’s sense of grace, but how?

What does it mean to be?

Be: to exist, have presence, or live

Okay, so now how do we do this simply?

simply: in an uncomplicated, straightforward, or plain way

And how do we BE simple and HONEST?

honestly: really and truly

So in order to encounter God we need to
Is that it? Why does it seem so hard to exist and truly be straightforward.
Seems simple.
So why does this not happen more often?

If those of who are Christians started doing this and encountering God’s grace on a daily basis, how much easier would it be to communicate God’s grace when we’ve experienced it just a few hours before?

What is love?

What is love?

Is it...

A touch?

A glance?

A kind word?

A hug?

A note?

Is it...






Or maybe....

Beginnings and Endings

Where does the beginning end and the end begin?
Who defines that?
Or even where is the line where the end ends and beginning begins?
What makes something the end of the path?
Do we just have to go off the trail a little to get where we need to be which would make it not really an end, but the means to something potentially better?
Or when we reach a "Dead End" are we just done?

There is a beginning at the end of every end.
In fact, the beginning and the end can sometimes be the same thing.
When one thing ends, it's really just a turn.
Or if it seems like a "Dead End" we just need to make a detour.
So maybe the end is not the end.
Maybe the end is just the means to reach a new beginning.
