60 SECOND LAINE-JUST TRY...SEE WHAT HAPPENS

'My mom or dad don't listen. My teachers don't listen. My friends don't listen. My grandparents don't listen. My boss doesn't listen. Really! Does anyone listen? Then one day I heard about this guy Jesus. I was told He listens. I read this story about this blind guy Bartimaeus who was sitting along side a crowded road. Among the crowd he heard Jesus was there so he cried out "Jesus, Son of David have mercy on me! Jesus stopped and said "Call Him! A disciple called him "Take heart. Get up; He is calling you." Jesus said "What do you want me to do for you?" And the blind man said "Rabbi, let me recover my sight." Jesus said "Go your way; your faith has made you well." Bartimaeus knew very little but he heard this guy Jesus listens so He asked.'

A young High School student did the above five minute talk to a small group, when done He asked, "Who listens to you?" At different times in His life He felt that no one was listening but still considered praying and he began to see Jesus makes changes in His life. He made the connection that Jesus really does listen. Even the disciple said "Take Heart". They knew He came to the right person. He turned His attention and heart over to the right guy, Jesus.

Are you struggling right now or do you just need someone to listen? Have you tried asking Jesus to listen?

Prayer: Jesus are you there, it's me and I need to know you are listening. Help me with............or I am feeling help me........Amen.

Just try....see what happens. Jesus said "I know what you will ask even before you ask it." Cool!

60 SECOND LAINE-LOVE RAN RED

Questions, lack of understanding, battles, differences, approaches, ideologies, theories, convictions, resolutions, peace, comfort, self-assurance, peacekeeping, peacemaking, frustrations, conflict....

Go to where THE LOVE RAN RED.


THE CROSS

Then wait...

I am reminded
"This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in  the light, as he is in the light we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1John 1:5-7 ) He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. (1 John 2:2
NIV)."

THE WHOLE WORLD.

His love extends for the whole world.

So lift all of the opinions and resolutions for any situation up to the one whose love ran red for us all. Wait and see if you should act, confess (weakness, unwillingness to change your ways, wrong-doing, lack of love for others), be quiet, forgive or pray. Wait for the Lords direction. There is never quick solutions to change. Any changes where our mind has been set.

Choose to walk in the light. That may require change. It may require you to speak out, be quiet, be still, change your words, renew your mind.

PRAYER: Lord I run to the cross with ....please help me to see things the way you see them. I submit my thoughts, actions, opinions and attitude to you holy Father. Amen.

God never changes but we need to change to be more like Him. Always we must change for the love of the one who died on the cross for us all.

60 SECOND LAINE-FLIP THE SCRIPT

-We don't even know how to sing.
Let's not lose time. You must learn. 
But how? 
Let's start at the very beginning 
A very good place to start 
When you read you begin with
A, B, C 
When you sing, you begin with Do-Re-Mi
Do-re-mi
Do-re-mi 
The first three notes Just happen to be 
Do-re-mi 
Do-re-mi
Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti 

Wondering why I copied the Sound of Music script above?
I'm beginning something new and don't know where to begin...Have you had that?
I was asking myself "Where do I begin?", when these words popped into my mind.
It did jolt me and give me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

So I am flipping the script=reverse the usual
in a situation and do the unexpected.
Do you need to FLIP THE SCRIPT?

Where do we begin?

For me today I'm gonna remember this 

I AM VERY CERTAIN, HE WHO BEGAN A WORK IN ME WILL CARRY IT ON TO
COMPLETION TILL HE RETURNS.
(PHIL.1:6)

This reminder is enough for today.

I am continuing to pray this same prayer: 
God lead me where you need me. Make it clear.
Amen. 

Maybe you have flipped the script and you're on the way,
then use your courage and bravery 
and encourage someone else today to "Go for it".
