Happy Mother's Day, Moms!

As a mother of four, I've experienced the feeling of being an invisible mom at times. When I look at my children though, my treasured gifts from God, it all is SO worth it!

God sees the invisible mom!

1 Peter 3:4 tells us: "but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God."

Whether we're a mom or not. There is something to be said about being invisible.

In Matthew 6:3-4, Jesus says: "But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."

We are to be invisible moms; for we follow His example.

Colossians 1:3 "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation."

1 Timothy 1:17 "Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen."

Remember this "Invisible Mom" story the next time you feel invisible and unappreciated and be encouraged...your are building temples for God!

The Bible - One Story - One Promise

To many, the Bible may seem confusing; it may seem hard to know where to begin. A simple Bible overview can set the stage for where you’re headed.

I love to read books, but usually before choosing or reading a book, I read the summary on the back or inside cover, or these days, the summary on Amazon! This introduces me to the overall story and helps me understand where the author is taking the reader.

The Bible is God's love letter to us! It's not just for studying to obtain knowledge, but it is our guide to knowing Him!

"The Promise" is a one page overview of the Bible; it helps us to get a glimpse of God's overall story. It's a place to begin.

Dumb Sheep or Stubborn Sheep?

I'm sure somewhere in a sermon or Bible lesson you may have heard how "dumb" sheep are; it isn't their intelligence that lacks though, it's more of their stubbornness for independence that is strong. Even at birth they are able to stand very quickly on their own.

I believe this may be why God refers to us as sheep in Isaiah 53.6. Our human nature and pride cause us to strive for independence - doing things our own way. We are also like sheep in three other ways.

The good news is...we have a Good, Good Shepherd! He is the Christ of Christmas!
