One-Liner Wednesday-it’s a slippery slope

“Non-alcoholic beer is for non- alcoholic’s read the label”. ~Ardel (old timer in my AA meetings)

I had to jot this into my notes one night at a meeting. I loved it, and it made me chuckle too. New alcoholics that are still trying to figure out there powerlessness over alcohol will still try anything. An old timer put it very simply as to say the above quote. I have known many who have relapsed thinking they could drink non-alcoholic beer. They go back to their old ways/habits so fast. It’s a slippery slope I am not willing to go down. It made perfect sense to me.

What are the chances

What are chances even in the midst of a storm you can see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that still has yet to be revealed

What are the chances on a clearly cruddy day you can still lift your hands in praise with an attitude of gratitude because your heart Jesus can heal

What are the chances as the pandemic gets worse, and we are still wearing our masks you can muster a smile underneath for the gift of life you breathe. Being still knowing He is God

What are the chances as the fear of our nation grows and feeds off its sheep you can know Biden may be President but Jesus Christ is King

What are the chances I know for me I will not be under their lock and key. For Jesus my savior holds the world in His hands. Faith over Fear, what are the chances this is how you are living your life. You too can be set free

Have no fear Jesus is near, and He hears the cries of His people. Chances are He already knows how this story ends…amen!

“You’ve never gone too far that God can’t redeem you, restore you, forgive you, and give you a second chance”.

What are the chances He’s given given you already more than one. I know He has me

I’ll take my chances with my Savior and keep looking up, because He has picked me back up time and time again. Chances are He already knows how my story ends…

Forgiven II by Thomas Blackshear

Decorate me with thee

Decorate me with thee

I wake, and I daily turn my will and my life over to the care of God. Asking in turn His will be done. I ask Him to decorate my heart with the spiritual gift of willingness. A spoonful of willingness to begin my day

I continue throughout my day I am gifted a beautiful daily reprieve where I get to stop at anytime. If I am feeling irritable, or discontent I can pray. God’s address is NOW, wow! I ask Him to decorate my heart with peace and serenity. A spoonful of peace to sweeten up what was a little salty in my head. For certainly I don’t really wish to go back to bed

I take pride in decorating my home, so should I not do the same in the decorations that adorn my heart. Paying attention to every detail in the art. Getting rid of a fractured frame, straightening a crooked picture. Just as the walls in my home are not bare, I am equally aware of the walls of my heart

Lord I ask that you continually decorate my heart with only the art work of your hands. For there is no greater master artist then that of you. Decorate my heart with the boldest of pieces. Where when everyone sees my smile, and my eyes they only see you. For your artist hands give me the gifts my heart so desperately needs daily. Mold me, and make me. Decorate me as it pleases you not me

Decorate me with thee
