I Say A Little Prayer For You...

My fellow blogger Amseaman posted this to help us get our heads around the horrible tradgedy in Japan.  One of the things we can do is pray, not just say any prayer, but pray for specific things that people might have peace and be able to do the incredible task at hand. This advice in this post was originally written by Don Wright, who wrote, “Reaching Japaneese for Christ”
I hope this will help you as you try to find ways to help the people in Japan.

In God’s Time (New Video.. Sorry the old one didn’t work..oops)

I wanted to share this video from Randy Houser.  It is a new song called “In God’s Time”.  It is very inspirational for me as sometimes I need to remember that God has a plan for me and I need to be patient and let Him handle things.  I am human and sometimes I like to control things and I want things to happen for me right away, but god knows what is best so I need to wait.  I have to admit though that it’s really hard :).  What do you think of this song?

Lead by the Spirit

This comming Sunday’s theme is “Lead by the Spirit”.  This comes from Matthew 4:1-11 where Jesus was lead to the wilderness to be tempted. Instead of being tempted, he remembered His Father and His commandments and stayed true to His calling on earth. 

Have you had times in your life when you were tempted or maybe you were just having a bad day and thought about not doing the right thing?  Here are some ideas to keep you out of trouble 🙂

If you are sad or depressed:  Call a friend or read the Psalms

If you are angry:  Read the bible and find out what God says about anger.  Think about what is making you angry and see if you can make it better.

If you are tired:  Take time to meditate and pray with God and rest with Him.

If you are happy:  Share that with someone and tell them what God has done for you.

What have you done to be lead by the spirit?  Leave a comment on the blog and let me know. I am sure others would enjoy your comments as well.

Have a good week!

Just Love

Hi.  My fellow blogger Greg Johnson has a blog about Love.  He says that the reason for God’s care and concern for us is “Just love” and he goes on to describe it in words I could not express as well as him, so here is a link to his blog.  I hope you enjoy.  What do you think?

No need to worry!

Biting one's lip can be a physical manifestati...

First of all, I have good news!  We have had 94 people see our blog since it opened 2 weeks ago!  Can I hear a Hooray?  Yeah!

Now for the topic of the day 🙂 I borrowed some of this blog post with permission from Anna Marie Davis a member of our congregation.  She is spoke today at our Clairemont congregation and her topic is based on Matthew 6:25-34.  It basically tells us that we do not need to worry about our situation, that God will provide for us.  I can tell you that is true as I have had financial worries lately and somehow it always seems to work out ok in the end.  Maybe I have had to give up a few things, but things are not as important as our relationship with God.

Anna Marie recently met a person who served some time in prison and has changed his life and has decided to follow God.  Anna Marie asked him if he was worried about his future since being in prison will affect whether he gets a job and many other parts of his life.  He said “no, because I know God will provide my needs”.  Anna Marie was impressed with this person because here is someone who has legitimate worries and yet he hands over his life to God.  I think we can learn a lot from this person.

Curt Sharon gave the sermon in El Cajon and he said something that caught my attention on this same topic.  He said “If we focus on God instead of our worries, our worries (or anxieties) will sometimes be taken care of when we serve God.”  It may not be the outcome we expected, but we will be better for it over time.

Is there anyone out there who would like to share how giving their worries or anxieties over to God has turned out for the better?

Have a good week!

Faith is like a rubber band?

 

I was listening to “The Message” on satelite radio yesterday and they said something that got my attention.  They said that  “faith is like a rubber band.  It works best when it is stretched”.  I know a lot of us are dealing with difficult times due to the economy and other things that are going on in our lives and I know that it can be hard to have faith when life seems messy.  Just remember that God is with you and will walk with you through the trying times in your life.  In Psalm 27 it says “God, You are my light and salvation.  Of whom (or what ) shall I be afraid?”.

Thanks for reading!

Grow in God

Welcome to the El Cajon Community of Christ Blog!  If you are new to the Community of Christ, Welcome.  Feel free to explore http://www.cofchrist.org to learn more about us or you can email me at cofchristelcajon@gmail.com.  If you are familiar with Community of Christ, welcome!  Everyone is welcome here and I would love your feedback as I begin this blog.  Let me know what you would like to talk about or what you would like to see here.

Last Sunday our theme was Grow in God and the theme came from I Corinthians where Paul is telling us that we can plant the seed and someone can water it, but it’s God that makes it live and grow.  So the idea of this blog is to help God help others to grow in their relationship with him.

I look forward to chatting with all of you and hope we can all grow with God together!

Shalom,

Evelyn Smith
