What Will You Do with Your One Precious Life?

Don't Lose Hope

“At the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair should be messy, and your eyes sparkling.” -Shanti

We never know how much time we have left. That’s why it’s important to live everyday. And to fill everyday with something meaningful.

To create a life that is kind and beautiful. To invest in people … and to follow our dreams …

And to make sure we have captivating dreams!

For too often we wake up – and we’re stuck in a deep rut. We do “the same old, same old” and we shrivel up inside. We give up on adventure and we let our world grow small. We find we’re just existing. There’s no passion anymore.

The World is Watching

AN interesting update on how we are treating our homeless while helping others elsewhere who also need it.

A Homeless Life

The world is watching the war in Ukraine unfold graphically on our TV’s, Cellphones and tablets.

The world is watching the homeless loose all their possessions over YouTube, Twitter and Instagram in LA. City workers putting everything in the trash trucks saying “we’re only doing our job”. The city is cleaning up the homelessness out there more then once but, more devastating to watch it on InvisiblePeople.TV. A true and heart wrenching interview with the ones loosing their homes as the city makes way for opening day in the ballpark, the ballpark.

The world is watching Tennessee that just passed a bill, waiting on Governor Lee’s desk, that makes camping on state property a felony. A felony for trying to survive. There aren’t enough shelter beds for the estimated number of homeless in Nashville. The city wants to attract a super bowl so they’ll need a bigger stadium costing billions.

STUDY TEXT:

What comes to mind when you hear the word “pastor”? What about when you hear the word “preacher”?

While these terms both often refer to the human leader of a church, “pastor” highlights the role of overseeing a congregation and “preacher” highlights the role of verbal proclamation. In some churches the terms may be used interchangeably; in some churches they may refer to different people. But in all churches, the humans who are in charge and who speak for the church are given tremendous responsibility. With this responsibility comes the risk of these human leaders…

STUDY TEXT:

Read John 8:2-11 (NIV below).

2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question…

Journal Prompts – Week Four

I really like these journal prompts from Shell Vera this week.
