Morning Manna – January 14, 2022

Confidence in God or Control  Can we honestly say we have confidence in God’s grace and care or does our confidence come from our own ability to control?  I submit that we often find ourselves operating from a mindset of control, rather than submission (oops….I said one of the “S” words ). And that need to control...

The Best Gift “Gratitude and love are always multiplied when you give freely. It is an infinite source of contentment and prosperous energy.” – Jim Fargiano “Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing.

Wait For It “Everything comes gradually and at it’s appointed time” – Ovid  David the psalmist declared, “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart;...

Simply Peace “Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control” – Jack Kornfield “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you...

Put a Filter On It! Have you ever said or reacted to something and immediately wished you could take it back? It’s as though you heard the words coming but had no power to reel it back in and when your ears really registered what you said you were a bit embarrassed, maybe even shocked....

Confidence or Fear? With confidence, you have won before you have started – Marcus Garvey Fear robs us of our ability to move past obstacles and flourish. It says we can’t rather than “we can”. It keeps us from seeing the possibilities and instead emphasizing the seemingly impenetrable roadblocks.  At times, we all experience or act out...

To Serve or Be Served We all value good service.  We want waiters to listen to our requests, be pleasant and treat us with respect, we want doctors, hair stylists/barbers, service repair personnel, etc. to show they value our time by not keeping us waiting well-beyond our appointment time. And let’s be honest, we can sometimes...

Occupying or Taking Up Space? Your task is not to see the future but to enable it – Antoine de Saint-Exupery Have you ever wondered what that scripture “occupy until He comes” really means? I know for me it’s hard sometimes to stay focused and remain patient (and calm) when all hell is or “appears” to...

Bold You Are You cannot influence or win souls for Christ if you bury yourself under a rock. Instead of fearing the world and its influences, go forth with boldness and be the influencer. Take what God has deposited inside of you and run toward others with the love of Christ. Your mere presence is...
