Like A Turtle

Posted by on 5:42 PM in Sensitivity | 0 comments

“Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed.  Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law.” ~ Galatians 6:2(MSG) What do you picture in your mind when you think about a turtle?  What are characteristics that are commonly associated with this creature?  There are some answers we would all immediately respond with but with more thoughtful consideration we would acknowledge various other behaviors, limitations, liabilities and short comings. In focusing in on these, there seem to be many correlations between the life of a turtle...

“Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them.”  Hebrews 13:3 (NAS) There are many comparisons and analogies between serving time in prison and feeling imprisoned in your mind due to various mental and emotional issues. The following parallels give a vivid and realistic portrayal of what it feels like for many who battle daily the experience of being held captive and imprisoned in their minds. It begins with the lack of freedom, control, or say over your own life. You are locked away and every choice and decision is made for you. You...

Line Of Communication

“A sense of isolation enfolds me like a cold mist as I sit alone and wait at life’s shut gate.  Beyond there is light, and music, and sweet companionship, but I may not enter.” — Helen Keller LINE OF COMMUNICATION Everybody wants to be known and to be understood.  The only way for this to happen is to have a clear, open and ongoing line of communication. Helen Keller as a child was blind, deaf and mute.  All of her lines of communicating were cut off until Anne Sullivan, her teacher, changed her life.  She proceeded to reach into...

Under The Radar

“Love that is put into practice always gives us a lift.   Love with it’s sleeves rolled up, with muscle behind it, love that looks for a need and rushes to meet it, love that does something – that’s the kind of love that ministers most.  That’s the sort of love the Lord Jesus has for us.” — Joni Eareckson Tada One of the great tragedies leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor was that the blips on the radar screen were not heeded and were disregarded, resulting in disastrous consequences.  What must it feel like for the many people all...

Time Out

“Forgotten is one thing, but forsaken is another matter entirely.  We very innocently forget people – people we love and care about.  That can happen in the hectic pace of things.  But the art of forsaking is very intentional- premeditated forgetfulness.” — David Jeremiah  Being put in “time out” for a child seems like an eternity even though it is generally only a few minutes.  The sense of being separated and isolated from the activities going on around them is excruciating.  How much more intense the isolation would feel if they were...

My Brother’s Keeper

“The devil’s strategy for our times is working.  He has deluded us into believing that we really shouldn’t concern ourselves with being our brother’s keeper.  And who really needs our help anyway?  I’ll tell you who—just about every person we meet, that’s who.” — Charles Swindoll  Some of the lyrics of the popular ballad, “He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother” read: So on we go, His welfare is my concern, No burden is he to bear, We’ll get there For I know He would not encumber me. He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother. Consistently loving...

‘The clear teaching of the New Testament is that the body of Christ is to be people deeply connected to each other, supporting each other, and filling each other’s hearts.” — Henry Cloud and John Townsend Have you ever watched a hummingbird out your window?   Don’t blink or you may miss it!  A hummingbird’s wing speed is 70 times per second and can be up to 200 times per second when diving.  They fly 25 to 30 miles per hour and that speed can be up to 60 miles per hour when diving.  They are the only bird that can fly forwards,...

Art of Appreciation

Posted by on 12:17 PM in Sensitivity | 0 comments

“Kindness is love reacting to those around you.  Goodness is love choosing to do what is right…in God’s eyes.” — Charles Stanley                Often when we visit a cemetery, our mind is flooded with memories of loved ones who are no longer with us. There are inevitably thoughts of those we wished we had known better and appreciated more. We imagine what it would be like to have them in our lives now and how we would cherish every moment we could spend with them. We realize how precious they were to us but regret being so selfish and...

“Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another.”  ~ Romans 12: 10(NKJV)   For those who are Winter Olympic fans, more than likely they will recognize the name of Alex Bilodeau and his story. We first became familiar with Alex in 2010 in Vancouver when he won a men’s moguls gold medal for his home country of Canada.  At that time we were also introduced to Frederic Bilodeau.  Their story was one of the most memorable and emotional moments of the games.  It was repeated again...
