When I think about His Favor……..

… the songwriter says that “His Favor is More Precious than Gold”!  How very true.  I was in two church services today and came away from both feeling “favored”.  Simply because how blessed I am just to know Him!  How blessed I am to be His Child.  How very favored I am yet I’m simply one of millions who love Him and feel favored too.  But I feel special, because He makes me feel special

.  My Stewardship is required.  How can someone be the recipient of so much unmerited favor yet be stingy with my time, my talents and my worldly treasures? As I get older, I’m finding it very difficult to deny His undeniable presence in everything that I do.  He covers my family and I constantly with His hedge of protection in a world full of pain and loss.  Each day is a gift.  I MUST treat each moment that He gives me as a gift to be shared.  Lord, help me reflect Your Love and Your Favor in my relationships with others.  My Stewardship is required as a living sacrifice for ALL that I’ve been given.

The Only Guaranteed Investment!

I was watching a popular investor today talk about how the stock market is literally a guaranteed good investment if you are prepared to stay in it long enough to reap the benefit.  I was thinking “you gotta be kidding me?”.  How could someone say that after the crash we experienced in 2008.  We all know that many investors lost everything and that there are many investments that have not and will not ever recover.  Now, let’s do a little compare and contrast exercise.  Every dollar I’ve ever invested in ministry has reaped excellent benefits for me and my family.  I continue to wake up each morning, my children are safe and healthy, my household is peaceful and pleasant and I have my health and strength.  Wow, I think I probably should stick with my investment in God and the investment He made in me by giving His only Son for me.  Not only was He a great investment for me, I believe I receive unending and unmeasurable dividends moment by moment. Do you have any stock market investments that you can say that about? I didn’t think so.  I choose Stewardship and Him each day.
