Reflections of the Designer
My reflections on my great Master Designer.
I’ve been recently looking for an easy way to get regular reminders emailed to me from my prayer list, and I was thrilled to find Echo Prayer Manager! Their services are exactly what I was looking for. There are a lot of sites that offer ways to share requests with others as a group thing, but I’ve been in need of a simple way to just track my own personal list of family, ministry, friends, and co-worker requests.

Do you find yourself feeling stressed, anxious, and worried often? Are you a believer in Christ, but you find it difficult to sometimes think on truth? God’s Word tells us not to be anxious but to instead trust in Him. He promises that His peace which passes all understanding will guard our hearts and minds when we thankfully pray to Him about everything. So often, however, our prayers can become stressed out and worried, because we aren’t praying in faith believing what God has already said about Himself, us, and the circumstances going on around us.

Christ’s love and compassion for us is overwhelming! We so often take it for granted, though, or refuse to show that same love we’ve been given to others.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends… So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love - 1 Corinthians 13
Do you know that feeling you get when God reveals a sin area in your life that you weren’t really aware of before or that you didn’t see the full extent of before? It’s almost an overwhelming feeling of regret, guilt, and shame that feel when you see in just a small way how wicked your heart truly is. God just recently opened up my eyes to an area of my life that I had not really admitted to fully before. I was brought to my knees when He used the life of Christ as revealed through His Word to show me just a small, dark, dirty portion of my deceitful heart. That small glimpse was enough to give me the sense of overwhelming weakness, shame, regret, and utter powerlessness to be what God intended me to be! Continue reading
I just watching a very adorable scene as I was eating lunch in a local mall a few minutes ago. There was a little girl who probably wasn’t even two years old yet toddling around closely followed by who appeared to be her older brother and sister. I wish I could have taken a little video clip of the cuteness, as this was a little Chinese baby girl who was just too cute for words! Continue reading
