Influence

I was on facebook this morning *GASP SHOCKING I KNOW* and I looked at my friends list. There are well over 500 people listed there. And I know pretty much all of the personally – with the exception of under a dozen.

Then I was thinking about how many people over the years that I have met and encountered in some way that are NOT on my friends list. There are quite a lot!  This would include people from your school experience of 12 plus years, people you’ve worked with, family friends, people at the park, people in the shops you frequent, people on vacations you’ve gone on, people you’ve given directions to… and more and more and more!!! The list goes one. So if you EVER think that you have no circle of influence. No one that you can encourage, bless, and show the light and love of Jesus to.

YOU ARE SOOOO MISTAKEN!

He is the same.

He is the same. today. yesterday. forever.

He does not change. ever.

He is still the same God who made a covenant with Abram. He is still the God who gave barren women and hope and future and a child. He is the God who delivered a people from slavery, who supplied all their needs and took them to a land of promise. He is the same God who closed the mouths of lions. He is the same God who filled the widows bowls with oil. He is the same God who protects, provides, listens, encourages, creates and holds us as we read about in the bible. Most importantly He is still the same God who LOVED us so much that He gave His only Begotten son, so we could believe in Him and not die, but have eternal life.

This week in church I was reminded of these things. That even though I change, He has not and will not. He is still the God I cried out to in my times of trouble, He is still the God I thanked in times of happiness. He is still the God who gave me promises, a future and hope. No matter what I do or where I go, He will be there to love me, just as He has since the beginning of time.

Now replace the word Love with the word Jesus. He is all these things.

Here comes a RANT!

I finally have my new computer back! I had it for 3 months… the hard drive died. NOT COOL. It gets sent back to Samsung and A MONTH later I have a working computer in my hands. Except……. it is not the same as it was. There are all sorts of things missing. Urg. Back to Future Shop I go!

ANYWAYS! I am not here to rant about my computer. I am going to rant about lego. My sweet, imaginative, creative four year old LOVES to build. So we bought him some “Big Boy” lego (the real lego that is small). The first thing that I noticed when looking at the lego aisles, is that it all comes in sets. Pretty cool EXCEPT what was once the ultimate imagination toy is now something that robs you of your creativity by telling you what to make with it and how to do it! My little guy was in tears because he couldn’t follow the instructions to create the picture that he was supposed to make with the lego. It took me quite a while to convince him that he could make whatever he wanted.

My advice. Buy the lego, throw out the box and the instructions BEFORE you give it to your child. Let them decide what to make, let them use their imagination to create boats, and cars, and castles, and pirate palaces!lego1
