Thoughts

"You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you." - James Allen You do not have to be where your thoughts have brought you, for if you have accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you will be everyday a child of the Most High God with your thoughts being righteous. However, because we are flesh, our thoughts waver to unrighteous things, so we have the indwelling Holy Spirit to tell our thoughts that it or they are wrong. We then can go to God for repentance through Christ Jesus for forgiveness, never no more to be remembered. Our sin(s) have been forgiven by JHVH. We can go through Christ Jesus who is our Propitiator--go between--Door, Only Way to reach JHVH. With Jesus, every day will be a good day regardless of life's perils. - Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy

We should offer praise even for the trials of life for they are often blessings in disguise. Finally, our sacrifice should include praise for His leading in ways yet to be experienced.

Spiritual Alignment

Years ago we made an investment that’s really paid off for us. No, we didn’t buy IBM stock when it was cheap—we bought a lifetime alignment contract for the pickup. One hundred and thirty thousand miles later, it seems like a pretty good investment.

Since the alignment is free, I try to get it done at least once a year, usually after our annual trek to the mountains of Colorado. Between city speed bumps and rocks jutting out of the mountain roads, realignment is pretty important.

If you don’t keep your front end properly aligned, it will cause unnecessary wear and tear on your tires, reduce your fuel efficiency, and make your ride less comfortable. Occasionally, it does our souls good to realign them too.

You realign your soul every time you ask “what would Jesus do.” Jesus Christ is our Savior and the Lord of our life. His death paid the penalty for our sin, while his life is our guide for living. Instead of doing what comes natural, we need to do what comes “spir…
