1000 Gifts: First Grace 11/29/16

1000 Gifts: First Grace  11/29/16

Tonight, I will talk about 1000 Gifts: First Grace in our Devotional study by Ann VoskampOn 11/19/16, we talked about choosing grace and the fact that God gave us freedom to choose. To choose to live with grace and glory as we live in God’s free and ready favor…living with the fullness that God offers us. Yet it is a choice…whether we live with God’s grace and glory or not. Continue to keep your list of One Thousand Gifts (graces).  Let’s begin to discuss what Ann means  when she speaks of “First Grace.”

Let Frivolous Things Go! 11/25/16

All of this I suppose is just a way to say to you that if what’s in your eyesight when you look up is what everyone else is doing or thinks you ought to be doing, clear the way, friend. Clear the paths around you, unmuddle the simplicity of the gospel. It is Christ who cares for you and cares for your provision, far more than you can ever care for it. So let the dead things drop, find out what they are and let them drop. Maybe Sayable is one of those dead things for you. Go ahead, unsubscribe. I won’t be offended, I promise.

A quote from   Sayable (http://sayable.net/2016/11/is-blogging-dead/)

Dear Lord,

Am I filling my time with things I need to let go? Do I need to cut these and spend more time with You and Your Word?

Of course, I do. I am still spending too much time in the world doing frivolous things that aren’t important.

I can hear You speaking to my heart now and giving me guidance about how to focus   more on You. I will do as You ask.

I love You and will follow You.

1000 Gifts – Thanksgiving  11/23/16

I give you 1000 Gifts – Thanksgiving and forgo the scheduled 1000 Gifts Devotional from our Devotional study, titled One Thousand Gifts: Reflections On Finding Everyday Graces by Ann Voskamp. I preferred to wish you a Blessed Thanksgiving and share some gifts with you for your Holiday. Above all, remember that Thanksgiving is first directed to God, the creator of all mankind. Then you can wish Thanksgiving to those you know and love as well as to those you do not know. Our Devotional study will resume on Tuesday, November 29, 2016. 

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving from Susan's Thoughts and Musings. God Bless You! Susan... Click To Tweet
