  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror.

June 12, 2013 - Truly Fulfilled Lives

By Dorothy Rugg

Every day is a gift, and God allows us to choose how we will live each one. We can choose to either use our days for His glory or for our own selfish purposes.

The wonderful truth found throughout God's Word is when we live for His glory we discover immeasurable joy and fulfillment in life. All of us are destined for greatness, if we will only learn to define that greatness in terms of God's glory. It doesn't mean we will have everything we want or be famous or have crowds follow us. Believe me, people who've experienced earthly success have found it to be only temporarily satisfying at best.

When we become distracted by superficial types of success, we let earthly things get in the way of the eternal plan God is working out in our lives. Our ears and hearts get clogged to the things of God; we shut off our spiritual ears, so to speak, and get so busy and caught up with everyday living we forget to listen to that still small voice of the Holy Spirit. We forget to spend time in God's presence seeking His will for our lives.

I love Psalm 90:12 — "So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom" (NKJV).

Every day we can receive God's wisdom and make the most of it. Why don't each of us decide to apply that word to our lives and seek God for what He would have us do and be? As we choose to follow after the Lord and listen for His direction, we find we are so much better off.
