Live With No Regrets

by Todd Brooks

How can one live without regret?

One way is to stop thinking and start doing; reaching out to someone you know is hurting right now, telling a family member you love them, texting someone a quick uplifting word of encouragement, breaking the ice with someone you feel is avoiding you but you know needs your help.

You may be the last person to communicate the love of God to them before they die - don't end up living with the regret of not having done or said something to someone...
       ...yes, that someone you are thinking of right now.
                       
Go on...now's as good a time as any...
                                         ...don't continue to live with the possibility of regret.

Word Picture - His Refreshing Breeze

by Julie Brooks

As I was exercising on the treadmill this morning, God gave me this word picture. I always place a large fan in front of me so I can be comfortable while I exercise. I can feel the breeze from the fan and see the evidence of it working as my hair is blowing and the breeze cools me.

But, I can't see the current of air coming from the fan. 

I am reminded that in my Christian life if I will just plug into God through His word and prayer, bringing my focus on Him, I can experience comfort and unmatchable peace, and know that He is near, even though I can't see Him.

His refreshing breeze can bless me every miracle minute of the day. The decision is mine whether I will take advantage of His loving presence and plug into it!

1 Peter 5:6-7.  "Humble yourself before God. Make Him the FOCUS of your thoughts. Bring your concerns and needs before Him, understanding that He is the sustainer of all life; and the peace of God will guard your heart and mind freeing you from the worries of life." Amen
