I JUST WANT TO COME HOME!

By Anita Mondragon
Well…here we are, almost at the end of the second month of 2020.  I made a list of several things I wanted to do differently this year.  Things like:  Changing my diet and exercising more, was of course in there, but other things came to mind as well.  Things like, smiling more, being more kind and humble, really looking at people with God’s eyes and seeing their hurt, sharing Jesus more; then one thing really stuck out in my mind–giving up!

SHINE!

By Anita Mondragon

I drew this promise from my box this morning….

“God…hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God, in the face of Jesus Christ.”  -2 Corinthians 4:6

So…what does that look like?  How do we ‘give the light’?

NOT OF THIS WORLD…

WINDSOCK CHRISTIANITY

By Anita Mondragon
 

We’ve all seen them around town.  They attract attention to businesses.  They are long, bright colored tubes with faces and arms.  When the power of the blower (wind machine) is turned on, they beacon folks to come in.   They are inviting.

But to be a windsock Christian is a distraction!  Christians are supposed to be stable, confident, and steadfast!  So I ask you…

ANOTHER DAVID…

By Anita Mondragon

Our Worship service at the Mission on Saturday was such a blessing!  Praying for folks with all kinds of requests.  I was amazed when I realized that none of them asked for prayer regarding their homeless estate.  They were praying for others-family members, friends, strength to witness…it was a real eye-opener to me.

THE SALVATION OF THE LORD…

By Anita Mondragon

And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord.

11 And they said unto Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness?  Wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.’”

13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to- day, ye shall see them again no more forever.  -Exodus 14:10-13

14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

WHAT WE SAY MATTERS!

By Anita Mondragon

My son Joel and I were talking about some things this morning….  He was up at 6:15! UGGG!  He was in the mood to talk-so I listened. 

 He asked if I would be alive to see my great, great grand babies.  I said I really didn’t think so since I’m already a senior.  

He then said that he probably wouldn’t get very old…that he would most likely die of Cancer.  I was shocked!
