Time for a New Year, New Life

 Time=Eternity © 2010 Debbie Turner Chavers Well, it is that time again.  The end of a year and the beginning of a new year.  What will this New Year bring? Regardless of the old year and its possibly less than pleasant days, tomorrow is new .  The beginning of each new day starts with a spectacular sunrise, even if it is obscured by clouds. The sun rises day by day, arising in its own peculiar glory.  And just as a page in a book is turned, so your new day and new year unfolds day by day. What will you write on the clean, crisp pages of the New Year?  Only you know, because you are the writer. If you are writing your own story without His help, I want to encourage you to invite Him to proof read your version.  His red pen, through acceptance of His shed blood erases the mistakes of a life lived without Him. If you would like to start new   click this . This will bring you to the ABC's of Salvation .  I have written my testimony and an example of the prayer I praye

Gospel Gossip

 Man Shall Not Live by Bread Alone © 2006 Debbie Turner Chavers Have you read what God Said? For Yourself? Not second hand verbatim of someone elses conversation....but what "He" said. Not the gossip of the gospel. Predigested word.  I am asking you to sit at His feet, dine at His table, EAT until you are full. I challenge you to to talk to Him personally. To digest His beautiful word.  His word that can comfort and heal a wounded or sick soul.  Feed a starving heart, fill to the full, the deepest hole in ones soul. Gossip may give you a nugget of information, but face to face with the originator of ALL things gives you the facts.  The gospel truth that you are LOVED with an everlasting, unfathomable love. Face to face-get the facts for yourself. ~Debbie John 6:48 -57   I am that bread of life.  Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not di

My Sin is Prettier Than Your Sin-Repost

I posted this last year and felt led to share it again this year.  My Sin is Prettier than your Sin . Can you see the absurdity of this statement? I did. Read John chapter 8 and consider. Drop your stones. What was Jesus writing? "My sin is prettier than your sin". This sentence was given to me as I lay upon my bed the other night. I was trying to pray, yet I kept thinking of the flood of information, that had been delivered by several people to me over a period of days. I sorted through the different emotions that were trying to gain ground in my thought process. "Nothing doing", I thought. We are called to have the mind of Christ. That settles it, I will have the mind of Christ. I was being asked to consider how I view someone else's sin versus my sin. I am asking you, encouraging you to do the same. Have you ever considered how easy it is to think self righteously about your sin versus the sin of others? Daily we are given an opportunity to view

Will You Obey?

How easily do you obey? Let go of something when asked? In Mark 11, Jesus had a need and knew that the need would be supplied by obedience.  Jesus's obedience to do what He had been sent to do and the obedience of those who had the colt.  Matthew 11:1-7  And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples, And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring [him]. And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither. And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him. And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt? And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go. And they brought
