I Made Love Wrong – Part 2

You can always find someone to agree with your decisions. Whether they are right or wrong!  You can find someone who will support you.  Isn’t that crazy!  You can find a voice that will tell you, “Do what makes you happy.”  ”You deserve this”  ”Follow your heart.” But when your closest family and friends raise concerns and you feel as if you should forge ahead without their support, that often leads to disaster.  Pay attention to your true support network.  If your mother, your best friend of twenty years and your favorite cousin all have concerns about Mr. Wonderful, then…

I Made Love Wrong

I was wondering the best way to share this.  I mean I want to say so many things, but I want to make sure its the right thing.  After all we want this blog to be a help to people and not just an airing of dirty laundry.  I gonna say it straight up.  I made love wrong.  I did it wrong and for the wrong reasons, and I’m gonna tell you two ways I made love and give you a few tips on how to do it better. I made love a story.  From the time I was a…

Day 11 – How to Give Priceless Gifts for Christmas

On Christmas there are some people who are truly forgotten.  Because we are Doing Christmas Differently, I want you to pray about ways to bless people in these places on Christmas Day.  Think of other people who are forgotten on Christmas and I want you to serve Jesus by serving them. “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me,” has been on my mind all week.  Who are the least of these? When we think of the least of these, we tend to think of…

Day 10 – How to Give Priceless Gifts for Christmas

I was talking to a friend after church and she shared something that had been on her heart.  How do we convey our spiritual beliefs to our children?  That is a great question.  As I was thinking about Doing Christmas Differently, I wanted to share an experience that made Christmas special for our children. Perhaps it will help you communicate what you really believe to the next generation of believers.  Serve. A few years back we participated in a Christmas Outreach Challenge for our church.  The task was simple.  We were given an envelope with $75 in it.  We had…

Day 9 – How to Give Priceless Gifts for Christmas

Today is day 9 of the 15 day series Doing Christmas Differently.    We are more than half way through and it is our prayer that this series has been a blessing during this Christmas season.   Social media sometimes gets a bad reputation.  For Christmas –  I want to suggest a way to be a blessing to Twitter users, which I lovingly refer to as my “Twamily”.  Not too long ago I learned about a new way to be an effective prayer warrior for those Twitter users who were requesting prayer. (I can’t remember who shared this, if you…

Day 8 – How to Give Priceless Gifts for Christmas

I want you to think about a person who is not walking with Christ.  This may be a family member, a friend, a co-worker, or an acquaintance.  Can’t think of anyone?  Scroll through your phone, look through your Facebook friends, or Instagram followers until you find a person that may not be saved, or may be out of fellowship with Christ.  Have you identified that person?  Today’s gift is just for them.  I wish I could insert their name and picture so that these words would be connected with their image.  This gift is personal and it is important or…

Day 7 – How to Give Priceless Gifts for Christmas

This gift idea is a little bit out of the box.  OK, well, a lot outside of the box, but I do believe it will communicate Christ’s heart for His people.  Before we get into the gift of the day, let me just share a few verses that have inspired this idea. Deuteronomy 15:10 tells us to, “Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.” Proverbs 3:27 says, “Do not withhold good from those…

Day 6 – How to Give Priceless Gifts for Christmas

An email was delivered to my inbox today that started off by saying, “Do you break out in hives just thinking about the craziness and chaos that comes with Christmas? It doesn’t have to be that way.”  Us “Christmas People” can be described in many ways:  Frantic.  Hurried.  Worried.  Rude. Indecisive.  Annoying.  If we are truly Christmas People then we will be people of peace!  Luke 2:14 reminds us of the declaration of the angel of the Lord and the heavenly hosts  when the shepherds learned about the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ.  “Glory to God in the highest…

How to Give Priceless Gifts for Christmas Day 5

As followers of Christ we are passionate about keeping CHRIST in CHRISTmas.  That phrase is a mere cliche’ unless there is some action behind it.  This is probably one of the most radical gifts and the most rewarding.  It is definitely one of the most difficult ones, but most fruitful.  Today’s gift is:  A Birthday Present for Jesus -Fasting!  During this season of feasting – begin a season of fasting. Matthew 16:24  Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.  While everyone else is getting…

How to Give Priceless Gifts For Christmas Day 4

Can you keep a secret?  This gift requires more than confidentiality – it requires anonymity.  There is some sneaking, tip toeing and hiding involved.  Are you up for the challenge?  This is the gift of undercover kindness.   Matthew 6:3 -4 “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” I was thinking about this verse and comparing it to how we “do Christmas”.  Is that how you usually…
