Similarities Versus Differences

Welcome Back Readers~

On the brink of a New Year, I came across this video from Godvine. Instead of focusing on the differences of her brother, who has a disability.. She focuses on their similarities! What is that saying, "And a child shall lead us,"?? How true..

Encouragement: Susan Boyle diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome

Hello Everyone~

In one of my recent posts from last week, you may remember I featured a review on Max Lucado's A Christmas Candle . The movie featured world renown singer Susan Boyle as one of the townspeople with the  voice of an angel.

 Boyle was first recognized for her talent on Britain's Got Talent.where she sang "I dreamed a dream" from the famous musical Les Miserables. She has been very open about her struggles with bullying as a child and difficulty knowing how to interact with people. Now she understands why..

Carrie Underwood in the Sound Of Music Live!

Welcome Back Readers~

I found this video courtesy of; I don't know about you, but I enjoyed the live version of this beloved musical.. It was a reminder of much simpler time where you could sit in front of the TV with your family and not have to worry about the content. As I tweeted to Carrie Underwood, "She shined for Jesus, no matter what the stage.."

Hope you enjoy this on your Monday workday!

Amy Grant - Grown-Up Christmas List

Dear Readers~

As the Christmas season approaches, it is easy to get caught up in the busyness of life.We fix up our houses with lights and buy presents for our loved ones; but in the end, none of that matters!. It's what we do for Jesus Christ that lasts forever. (I probably have put this video on here before, but I feel like it's important that we remind our human needs are more valuable than the material)

Encouragement: The Christmas Candle movie

Welcome Back Readers~

This weekend I had the opportunity to see Max Lucado's A Christmas Candle brought to the screen. This story follows a town down on their luck in the 1800s- their hope mistakenly put in the in the miracle of a candle. In the meanwhile, a new pastor tries to convince the town that their faith is in the wrong place... This movie reminded me about the importance of a daily prayer life; I would highly  recommend it

God Forbid

Greetings Readers~

This Sunday, one of our pastors preached on the story of The Prodigal Son and this song came to mind. If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you probably realized I struggle a lot in my life. Not only because of my disability, but with my faith as well. It's a constant battle to stand up for what I believe in and stay firm in it. Too often, Christians find themselves (myself included) comfortable in their walk with God. But that's not what causes the most spiritual growth and someone. It's remembering our past as sinners and God's ultimate sacrifice in spite of all we have done.

Like the Prodigal Son, we have each squandered our inheritance and come back expecting the worst. Instead, God doesn't give us what we deserve, but what he wants us to have. He restores us to himself and makes us each sons and daughters..

As Romans 5:8 says:

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

What then should be our response? Well, we should appreciate God, and be thankful for his unfailing love and grace towards us-
not thinking it's something that we deserve or should expect.. It's a gift from God!. Not because of our good deeds; we are, after all, sinful... No matter how high we like to think of ourselves
