Be Relentless   5 comments

Relentless – not relenting, steady, persistent, determined, immovable, uncompromising, undeviating, unflinching, unstoppable

We need to be relentless about:

our faith,

our beliefs, 

overcoming addictions, 

overcoming sins, 

getting projects done around the house that have been left undone for long periods of time, 

cleaning the car (inside and out), 

keeping in touch with family and friends(as long as they are not exhibiting toxic behavior), 

reading our Bible everyday, 

praying for others everyday, 

praying for ourselves everyday, 

finding at least one person everyday to give a compliment to, 

seeking conversation with Jesus everyday, 

taking time to praise and worship Jesus everyday, 

getting exercise everyday, 

eating healthy everyday, 

getting that closet or room organized, 

getting the yard to look decent, 

spending time with the kids/grandkids(if you can), 

spending time with your spouse,

clean and get rid of stuff in the garage,

thinking positive thoughts about one’s self everyday,

knowing and living it out that you are important to Jesus,

knowing and living it out that you are valuable to Jesus,

knowing and living it out that Jesus has your best interests in mind,

knowing and living it out that ALL things will work out for your good and His glory,

being thankful with what you do have and not complaining about what you don’t have,

saying, “I love you” to a loved one at least once a week(if you can do more great),

getting to know someone better,

If you would like to add anything to this list, give it a try.

140 Characters, Before, During And Possibly After Twitter   Leave a comment

I just read a blog about the danger of tweeting sermon snippets during the sermon, and probably even after is included. The danger being, reducing what is said into such short “pieces” that the true message is lost.

That led me to the following thought…….

The most memorble and most helpful words I have gotten in my life have been less than 140 characters and some of them have been before twitter even existed and some from reading a tweet…….

1) Holiness is the presence of God, not the absence of sin. (Heard from the mouth of my pastor behind the pulpit about twenty years ago and helps me keep my focus on Jesus instead of my failures.)

2) You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. (Of course from the Bible.)

3) You and your family will be here. (Spoken by Jesus Christ to me on a greyhound bus about 17 years ago when I was single and not even in a relationship, this statement to this day helps keep my marriage intact.)

4) People often get married for selfish reasons, but it takes unselfish reasons to stay married. (Tweeted by Rick Warren back in August 2011, another statement that helps keep my marriage intact.)

5) You’re right on schedule. (Spoken by Jesus Christ to me about two months ago. He knew I needed to know I hadn’t failed Him and that I was exactly where I was suppose to be with some of my thoughts and quanderings.)

There are of course many, many adages and sayings like – “A stitch in time saves nine.” , “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” , “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” – that are 140 or less characters long. It seems to me the twitter concept has been around for 1000’s of years.

“JESUS is the same yesterday, today and forever.” (Again, straight from the Bible.)

I also thought of this verse – Proverbs 17:28 ” Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; when he shuts his lips,  he is considered perceptive. ” Its not the quantity of words spoken, but the quality. (another <140 characters saying.) So I say tweet away tweeters, you never know whom it may help.

And if you don’t tweet…….use old school – a post it note…….or even older school – papyrus/stone tablet……..

1) Find a Bible

2) Pick a verse or passage.

3) Insert your own or someone you are praying for, name into the text and pray that everyday as many times as you like or think is good. Use pronouns if you would like. You can also pray it in the second person grammatical form of speaking/writing.


Psalm 23{second person in parenthesis} – The LORD(You LORD) is(are) Susan’s shepherd, she shall not want. He(You) makes(make) her to lie down in green pastures, He leads(You lead) her besides still waters. He restores(You restore) her soul. He leads(You lead) her in the paths of righteousness for His name’s(Your name) sake. Though she walks through the valley of the shadow of death, she will fear no evil, for You are with her, Your rod and Your staff, they comfort her. You prepare a table before her in the presence of her enemies. You anoint her head with oil. Her cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow her all the days of her life. And she will dwell in the house of the LORD(Your house) forever.

Romans 8:28 (first person) – And I know that all things work together for good to me who loves You and is called according to Your purpose

(for someone else) – And Susan knows that all things work together for good for her, for she loves You and is called according to Your purpose.

Now go and open up the door of Heaven and release everything in His storehouse
