Unity? Peace of cake!

So then, let us pursue [with enthusiasm] the things which make for peace and the building up of one another [things which lead to spiritual growth]. Romans 14:19 AMP 

 Have you ever tried playing drums? 

 It seems to be the musical instrument that most like to just mess around on, but the majority of those individuals have a hard time just playing a simple beat.  

 Why? Well, in order to play that ‘simple beat,’ it requires you to have all four limbs work together while moving at different times. Kind of like rubbing your stomach in a circular motion with one hand and patting the top of your head with the other. Not so easy, huh? 

 Before you give up, if you are an aspiring drummer, just like with anything else, Practice makes Perfect! As you devote time to practice, you will overcome that ‘mental block’, and train your mind to allow your arms and legs to unite, live in harmony, and be effective. 

Making The Most Of The Moment 

We all have exactly 24 hours in one day. God has equally dispersed 86,400 seconds to all of us every day. We can’t buy a minute back for a million dollars, and once an hour is gone, it’s gone forever. However, one thing will always remain certain about the length of time we spend living on earth, and it’s that our time on earth is uncertain. This absolute truth should encourage us to make the most of every second that has been entrusted to our care. There is a Latin term called “Carpe Diem” which means to seize the day: meaning don’t waste a moment. This phrase echoes a verse found in James 4:14 which says: “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” 

Putting God First In Your Marriage

Everything we do is for the Honor and Glory of God, and so it is with Marriage. It says in Proverbs 18:22, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord.” This is true but for some reason we always use the blessings, the favor, and the gifts of God and place those as priority. Listen, blessings, favor, miracles, and even a great marriage is secondary when it comes to God. What happens is we want to have successful marriages, but we build on the world’s foundation and call it successful! In reality, Christian marriages are struggling.
