The Eleventh Day of Christmas

On the eleventh day of Christmas Santa was performing a test flight over Hawaii and through a series of unfortunate events became stranded, along with all the reindeer, on a small island. Well Santa was basking in the sun enjoying his unexpected vacation from the busy holiday, he decided to call in a favor from a long time friend of his simple known as the “Doctor“. The Doctor was glad to help his stranded friend and took the job of delivering presents upon himself and let Santa get some much needed sun. As the Doctor was preparing for his new found job he happened to find a little creature chewing on the Tardis‘ control wires and causing all sorts of mischief. After several games of chase and hide and seek the little creature ,which preferred to be called Minn, would not leave the Doctors side so the he decided to take him along for the Christmas adventure. If you take all this and then add Glitch Floyd in to the mix you have the makings of a Christmas Switch Up Miss-Hap were the Doctor ends up in the completely wrong place to deliver presents but just might find the best Present ever.

A Little Different

While think of ways to tell you guys about my latest ” Though Provoking Picture” I decided to try some thing a little different, instead of me making video and telling you what to see in my art work. I am give you guys the chance to let me know what the picture means to you. What do you feel? what emotion does it strike in you? what do you think the meaning is? Does it make you want to change or do something? So please take the time to look closely at every detail and remember the first thing that pops into your head and post a comment letting me know what it is. I will post a video in week to wrap things up and tell you what I was thinking well creating this piece. Have fun, tell next time Stand Strong.

Standing on the Promises

Standing on the promises of God, what does that mean? What are the promises of God? These are two questions I had today so with the gears of my mind spinning I went to go search them out. I did some Bible study using Logos I found a few answers to one of my questions. The promises of God are

  • The gift of the Holly Spirit (Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4)
  • The fulness of life and eternal life (Hebrews 12:16)
  • The Resurrection (John 5:29)
  • The forgiveness of sin (1 John 1:9)
  • The presence of God ( Exodus 3:12)
  • The peace of God (Romans 5:1)

This is only a short list out of all that I found, I picked that ones that are most importuned  to me. So for the next question what does standing on the promises of God mean, well to the best ability it means to ponder, pray, and study daily the promises that God has given to us to pull us forward in are lives as believers in Christ.

With promises like this to pull us on, dear friends, let’s make a clean break with everything that defiles or distracts us, both within and without. Let’s make our entire lives fit and holy temples for the worship of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1, The Message)

Here is my newest sunday sermon sketch it illustrates a Christian in the midst of a howling storm of doubt and fear, fear of what you mighty wonder well for me it’s fear life, fear of the unknown, fear of the future, and fear of failing. In the sketch you will see that if that Christian moved he would be swept away but if he stands strong on the promises of God he is safe from the storm. Note that even thou he is safe he can still see the fierceness of the storm around him that is where faith in Gods promises comes in.

STANDING ON THE PROMISES
by Debra Snipes

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

Well those are my thoughts for the week please comment and tell me what you think and if its something God used to speak to in any way tell some one about it start a conversation. Tell next week Stand Strong my friends in Christ.
