I’m Just Passing Through

This was mentioned by our music director in church today Jody Thompson, and it got me to think.  He said,

” I’m just passing through.”  His words got me to think and to write  I hope this touches someone’s soul who is struggling with a fight.

This is not my world, even though I know that some days it’s just hard.  I see the hate, the pain, I believe they are starving for something sane.  I look out my window at work to watch the flashing lights. I have watched first hand another person OD from getting high.  We try to figure out why?  I spoke to a prostitute one day.  I saw the people stare at me in an unusual way. But I remembered when my business partner took one to lunch.  He told her how much our Father loves her, then she shared with him her pain.  He repeated how much God loves her and she started to cry but the sad reality is she wasn’t ready to give up her life.

You see the devil knows what is a crutch, something you are willing to do to lose all touch. Reality, that’s to say the lease, what these people give up is their peace. The Bible tells us In John 14:27 Peace I leave with you;my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.  I try not to look down on people the true word is “try” but I have to be honest sometimes it is hard.   No one wants to get taken advantage of, why? because we feel we are to smart.  The true reason we feel this way is because we have harden our hearts.

I have shared with friends what God placed on my heart, it is a way to share and give and yes this comes from the heart.. one day I felt the Spirit say to me, “when you give take it away from you and give it to me.”   “ My friend what I give to you is no longer between you and I.  God placed it on my heart to give, if you are not going to use it for the reason you are asking it doesn’t matter to me.  This gift is now between you and God.”  I have had people try to give the money back, I wondered why and then the Spirit explained, ” they can lie to you but they can’t lie to Jesus Christ.”  

We are not of this world we have been set a part.  But our job before we go is to try and change the rest of the their hearts.  Then the words of my friend rang clear and true… you see none of this matters were all just passing through.


Hang in there because …. WERE ALL GONNA GET THERE.

Guiding Light

lighthouseI recently saw a picture of a Light house in a office in our local court house. The person who had it was very proud to talk about Light houses. He shared with me all the Light houses he and his wife have visited. In his office were ceramic Light houses. I told him my wife and I spent an anniversary on Mackinac island in Michigan, though he had been there he was fascinated to hear me talk about it. I told him how my wife and I bicycled to the end to view it. His eyes we’re focused on every word, my facial expression and even my hand gestures.

I enjoyed talking to him about Light houses. I told him I used the story of the Mackinac Light house for a communion meditation. He asked me to explain.

I said while my wife and I rode bikes upto it. I saw it was on the furthest point of the island and at night you could see the light skim across the water circling the island keeping ships from running ashore. I then told him I feel God does the same thing for those who love him and follow his ways. We don’t always see God’s hand protecting us but it is always there. People who live on the island do not pay attention to the Light house but during violent storms they are glad it works.

We are no different.  We don’t always count our blessing that God gives to us through his precious son Jesus until we are put in a violent storm. Why are we like that? I waited for that question but it never came, however, I now had the attention of him and a staff member. I went on to tell them when you allow the Light of our Father to shine through you it helps to weather all storms.

God’s promise, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5. We have to find away to steady our rudder,”Our Faith” to help guide us through everyday life and especially storms.

Jesus promised us storms will come. Just like a Light house storms come the waves crash into it. It damages the outside, paint may need attention. We are no different, our bodies may take a beating, we may feel we have been deserted. But just like the poem foot prints in the sand. When we can’t go his love carries us to the finish.

Church! This conversation took less than 5 minutes, I was told to come by anytime.
When you feel what you say doesn’t matter remember this. Moses needed Aaron and we need to use each other
Were gonna get there.
