Main blog for You Are Thinking web site.


Here is a post from my facebook page:

 

I'm taking a survey. It has to do on how serious genuine mature followers of Jesus will be able to be better ambassadors for the real God. Below shows how we have dropped the ball on the gospel that folks have heard from most "Christians."

After seeing the first link, what do you think Jesus would say to that last question "From what?" (Click on the same picture of Jesus standing at the door. It is the on the left, 3rd picture down and enjoy the animation.) http://youarethinking.com/

Then go to this link to see what my current top answer is. I'll be posting the top 10 answers in the near future and plan to update as I get more responses!

P.S. This has been a fun conversation starter when you even give people the verbal picture and fill in the conversation. for the counterfeit one, I change my voice from friendly to one that is more of a gangster type voice!

My son Grant & I are working on a project that showcases God's amazing love & vulnerability that cuts through the Enemies lies.   Eager to get your thoughts and feedback on it.  It is a one page relay!   

Enjoy!

God's Hands

 When someone says, "God loves you," what do you think?  Do you huff and say, "He loves me if I'm good," or, "He will love me if I quit sinning," or, "He loves me if I love Him back, but if I don't He will burn me in hell,"?
 If those are your thoughts then you probably want nothing to do with that cruel manipulator who calls himself god.  You know true love is not conditional or threatening.
 But what if you learned that God loves you even when you are bad, that He loves you while you are sinning, that if you choose to reject His love, He will respect your choice, even though it will break His heart for eternity?
 An ancient prophet spoke God's heart and said, "Can a new mother forget her nursing baby?"
 "No!" you say.
 The prophet replied, "Even if that impossibility ever happened, God could never forget you."  Then the prophet spoke of his future and our past, and God stretched out his almighty arms and said,"Look, I have carved you into the palms of my hands."
 We lean in and look but only see the scars left by the nails of the cross.
 "This is how much I love you," God says.  "These scars are permanent just like my love for you. I went through this pain because I love you."
 "Someone has lied about me. He says that no one is good enough for me. He says you have to earn my love.  But the truth is all you have to do is accept my love."
 "For eternity every single human being will be in these scars. The ones who accepted my love will see their salvation and cry tears of joy as they slowly comprehend the vastness of my love for them.  They see their names, and so do I."  
 "But I AM God, so I see more.  I see those who rejected my love, and I cry tears of unutterable anguish because my beloved children did not want to come home.  I did every possible thing to convince them of my love, and finally because of that love, I let them go. They wanted nothing to do with me, and it will break my heart for eternity."
 "When everyone gets to heaven, I will wipe away all their tears, but deep in my heart I will never stop mourning the loss of my children who only exist in my memory and my scars."

 "So the next time you hear someone say, 'God loves you,' don't shake your head and believe the lies about Me.  Instead look at my scars and see what I went through to give you the chance to live with me forever, and know that no matter what you decide, I will always love you."

Life is busy for most folks.  Thus my reason for not posting.  Generally I'll try and keep my thoughts brief, but look forward to introducing you and those in your community of family and friends.   See links to follow that are worth checking into!  Sure it is a bit of a fruit salad, but enjoy the diversity!   (Hope to go into more details soon on these!)

- Just talked to a quality Dentist that is also thumbs up on a great book that has great insights as to both how Satan has distorted the Gospel- and yet shows how it is being restored to it's untainted / uncorrupted state.   Bill Chambers does a great job with "Love that Heals."   From audio books (allows you to fly through books, to ebooks, or literal books--you will not regret reading this:

11.21.15

 

Are you or I— really generous? 

 

“You know how to give. Everyone gives something somewhere. We define our generosity by our random acts of goodness. But generosity is more than that. Generosity is the premeditated, calculated, designated emancipation of personal financial assets. When you become generous, you give more, save more, and consume less. It can free you from the Great American Insanity Cycle of spending more than we make, accumulating debt, having no financial margin, worrying about money, and spending money we don’t have in order to distract ourselves from worry.” Andy Stanley

 

You really owe to yourself to check this out.  You really owe it to those you love & like- to check this out.  You know down deep, you owe it everyone—including the One Who is the ultimate Maker of us all.  Let Him restore you.  HE alone can do this.  Here is practical way He can.  

 

Glad you are thinking.  Let me know what I might want to share that is worth being thought about!
