"Trey Tuesday" - July 21, 2015

He's Not Surprised...

Do you ever think that God isn't watching?  That He isn't aware of every detail of your situation?  That He just doesn't understand what you are going through?  Sometimes it is even too difficult to put your thoughts and feelings into can you begin to pray about them and surrender and entrust them to the King of all creation?!?

God, your Creator, who formed you for His purpose, cares all about you - even the number of hairs on your head!  (Matthew 10:30)  He is never ever surprised by what you are enduring.  Even though it may seem like the pain in your heart is too much to bear and life seems so out of order, God indeed is in control.
Ask Jay and Rachel.
Or Joe and Bella.
Imagine Daniel in the lions' den.
Or Jesus in the garden.
Row the boat with the disciples on the stormy sea.
Or talk to Jonah in the belly of a large fish.

God is forever listening and watching and loving you!

"The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."  Deuteronomy 31:8

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior"  Isaiah 43:1-3

"Trey Tuesday" - July 14, 2015


No, I'm not talking about trans fats or cholesterol, sugar or fat labels.
I'm also not talking about ability, size or status.
Let's talk about labels which clearly define God's calling on our lives.

John the Baptist's looked like this:
"for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for Him,
to give His people the knowledge of salvation
through the forgiveness of their sins" Luke 1:76,77

Jesus: "came to seek and to save the lost."  Luke 19:10

And Moses:
"so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt.”  Exodus 3:10

God has a very special label/calling/job that He has prepared for each one of us!
What do you think Trey's calling/purpose/mission was/is?
What is yours......l?

"Trey Tuesday" - July 7, 2015

Don't tolerate intolerance!

Every time we turn on the news, (regardless of the platform/source we use) there always seems to be another new instance of the violation of someone's beliefs.  Our culture is either tolerating anything and everything or not tolerating anything at all!  Education, government, economics, entertainment, world affairs, religion, health care, relationships...even poor little gluten and lactose don't stand a chance!  Everyone has an intolerance to something these days.

Much more importantly though, it also seems like almost everyone has an intolerance to someone these days!  That is where we must draw the line.  We cannot tolerate the intolerance of God's people, His creation.  When Trey was diagnosed with cancer we didn't fight Trey...We fought the battle with the weapons of faith, hope, love and prayer.  When Trey finished his battle with cancer we didn't fight the funeral director...We fought (and still fight) that heart wrenching battle with the weapons of faith, hope, love and prayer.

Scripture is very clear on this one. 
Read this verse. 
Memorize it.
Use it to help you tolerate God's beloved people!

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God."  Romans 15:7
