There are moments when I contemplate writing a book. I consider entitling it, “ETC” because it would be a collection of all my random wanderings gathered into one space. The post today might feel like I decided to do that because I did.
First . . .
3Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.Genesis 1:3
The holiday week has been quiet, but as soon as the door and windows come the inside can be finished. Patience is key right now.
Next . . .
On Sunday, July 4, I heard an excellent message from Psalm 23:3 reminding me that life isn’t about me. Nothing is about me! It is all about God! Even Jesus said he lived to bring glory to God. In so many ways, it takes the pressure off when I allow that message to sink into my heart. A renewed sense of freedom from performance rises up in me and isn’t this particular holiday all about freedom?
Finally . . .
I admit I am not a social media expert and I don’t understand how these platforms work. I do wonder sometimes how I can have close to 500 friends on Facebook and see posts from less than 10% of those people? I admit posts from all 500 might be overwhelming.
Anyway, if you access this blog through Facebook and would like to be assured you are seeing every new post, consider going to outofthechaos.blog and clicking on the “follow” button in the bottom right hand corner. Enter your email address and you will automatically receive this content to your inbox every morning at 6 a.m. You will not receive any other annoying content from Word Press. Just my bits and pieces.
Consider this scripture today. . .
13You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. 14He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. 15In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross. 20You have died with Christ, and he has set you free from the spiritual powers of this world.Colossians 2:13-15, 20
FREE IN CHRIST!
That is something to celebrate!
