Stay Cool! God Bless

{January 22, 2008}   Chapter 17

This chapter includes a wonderful prayer.  It also reminds us of Matthew 16:26:

For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Here is a quote from Jim Elliot, "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose."  We can’t keep materialistic things to include money, but we can keep our soul, when we give it over to the Lord.  When we die and we all will die, if we have a relationship with Jesus and have remained faithful to Him, we will have eternal life.  That is the MOST important thing to remember.  It is not what we have, who we are, but how we live.  Live for HIM!  Let HIS light shine, giving him all the glory for all things.

I thank Him for the good and the bad.  The bad things have taught me how to respond, how to live, and how to rely on HIM, only Him.  The good things have taught me how to enjoy, peace, happiness, and has shown me love.  The bad things have shown me HIS love.

If you are uncertain or unstable about your spiritual life as you might be about your finances, then here is a prayer to pray.  It will bring you peace with God.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for making a way for me to have a relationship with you; I realize that I am a sinner and need forgiveness, and that I am hopelessly lost without You.  Thank You for being a perfect Father; I ask you Lord Jesus, to be my Savior and my Lord.  I believe that You died for me.  I want to turn from my sins.  I repent and receive Your life in exchange for my sin.  I choose to trust and follow You as my Lord and my Savior.  I now invite You to come into my heart and life.  In Jesus name, Amen. (pg 171)

Talk with God everyday….every moment of everyday.  Read the bible as much as possible.
