You Can Make a Difference

The two paragraph excerpts below caught my attention.  Thus my blog today. You may never know the eternal and daily difference that your witness of Jesus Christ does in our world. The average life basically goes unnoticed by men, yet can be bill board size in heaven.   One decision can truly effect a life .   This mothers decision could have devastated a life.  Bill's decision to follow Christ changed the effect of his mothers decision. We all make choices everyday.   Today...choose life.   A better life.  One person reached out and helped someone and now the one who was now helping thousands! You can make a positive difference. -Debbie  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ An excerpt from... Metro World Child site.   The introduction for Pastor Bill Wilson. Abandoned on a street corner by his mother at the age of 12, Pastor Bill sat and waited for her at that corner for 3 days. She never came back. A Christian layman who was on his way to see his son in the

Resting In Faith

God Sees Us Naked © 1999 Debbie Turner Chavers Hebrews 4:13 Isaiah 61:10 I studied Hebrews 4 this morning, here are my journal notes from my study. The key scripture that popped off the page and started me pondering and writing was... Hebrews 4:2  For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. Hebrews 4:3  For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, Hebrews 4:6   Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief. Hebrews 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Hebrews 4 spoke to my heart of Rest, that we are commanded to rest in him. Faith in God and his Son was the root of resting. The Israelites could not rest because they did not have faith. We fall out of resting when we give ourselves over to u

The Love of Money  Is The Root of All Evil © 2010 Debbie Turner Chavers I love the heart of John the apostle, but I relate to Peter the apostle on a gut/personality level. Peter appears to have been a sincere, dedicated, boisterous man. On most days I am exuberant with a love of life and people. There are times when I can easily imagine myself, like John leaning on Jesus' breast, so assured, that I am the "Beloved" one. I am amazed at my own "feelings" as I think along these lines of thought. Yet, I am aware that without a close eye toward my Shepherd and His instructions, I can easily be overcome with my feelings, not the scripture facts. I can relate in areas of my life with each disciple described in God's Word. Yet I never want to relate to Judas Iscariot in action or thought! Judas Iscariot reminds me of my Art Parable, The Love of Money Is The Root of All Evil, © 2010 Debbie Turner Chavers. Each disciple related to Jesus Christ in a uniq
