Happy Thanksgiving


It’s Thanksgiving again, and my prayer is that God blesses each of you abundantly, providing for all your needs.

Psalm 100:4-5 ….. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name, For the Lord is good…… (NKJV)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

The Blue & Yellow Can


 John 10:10 – A thief comes to steal and kill and destroy, but I came to give life — life in all its fullness. (NCV)

John 15:3 – You are already clean because of the words I have spoken to you. (NCV)

The directions on the blue and yellow spray can promise us that it:

  • Lubricates (helps things to run more smoothly)
  • Cleans (removes dirt, adhesives, and much more)
  • Protects (against rust and corrosion)
  • Penetrates (infiltrates)
  • Displaces moisture (restores)

This is much like what God does with us when we enter a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus:

  • He lubricates us, helping to make our attitudes run more smoothly.
  • He cleans and convicts us of all wrongs and removes anything that clings to us that is not of Him.
  • He protects us, by way of His Son, Jesus Christ, by giving us His eternal life, a life acceptable to Him, instead of a sentence of eternal death.
  • He penetrates our hearts and souls in order to preserve us, so that we can spend eternity with Him.
  • He displaces or dislodges the wrongs in us (attitudes or actions) and fills us with His love, truth, and integrity.

Dirt is so easily attracted.  Sometimes the harder we try to keep ourselves, our clothes, or our hearts clean, the more likely it is that we’ll be stained in some way. We can easily shower our bodies and launder all our dirty clothes to wash away the dirt, but it is difficult to change our attitudes and become more forgiving. Only God can change us completely. He erases the guilt of mistakes, encourages us to see only the best in people, and leads us along new paths in our lives — places that we would never have thought ourselves capable of walking. He gives us the strength to accomplish much more than we could possibly dream of, because only He knows what and who we should be. Only He can lubricate our lives, cleanse us, protect us, penetrate to our heart (our core), and displace anything that would spoil our chance to spend eternity with Him.

Romans 12:2 – Do not be shaped by this world; instead be changed within by a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to decide what God wants for you; you will know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect. (NCV)

Prayer: Father, we want to be made whole and in good working order, so please come into our hearts, minds, bodies, and spirits, and lubricate us with Your grace and love. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Recall Notice!


I loved this message.  I received it in an email from a friend.  I do not know the origin.

The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units
 manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious
 defect in the primary and central component of the heart.

 This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units
 code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of
 the same defect in all subsequent units.

 This defect has been identified as “Subsequential Internal
 Non-morality,”  more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is
 primarily expressed.

 Some of the symptoms include:
 1. Loss of direction
 2. Foul vocal emissions
 3. Amnesia of origin
 4. Lack of peace and joy
 5. Selfish or violent behavior
 6. Depression or confusion
 7. Fearfulness
 8. Idolatry
 9. Rebellion

 The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this
 defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free
 of charge to correct this defect.

 The Repair Technician, JESUS, has most generously
 offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of
 these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

 The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R.

 Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through
 the REPENTANCE procedure.

 Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair
 Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

 No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will
 replace it with:
 1. Love
 2. Joy
 3. Peace
 4. Patience
 5. Kindness
 6. Goodness
 7. Faithfulness
 8. Gentleness
 9. Self control

 Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (BEST Instructions
 Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the
 use of these fixes.

 WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit
 without correction voids any manufacturer warranties,
 exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous
 to list, and will result in the human unit being permanently
 impounded. For free emergency service, call on Jesus.

 DANGER: The human being units not responding to this
 recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The
 SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to
 prevent contamination of that facility. Thank you for your attention!

 – GOD

 P.S. Please assist where possible by notifying others of this
 important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any
 time by ‘Knee mail’!

 Because HE Lives

 May the Lord Bless and Keep you.
