Shandra Lee. With Heart Wide Open. A Miracle In The Making.

I love new things don’t you?

  • New (school ) year.

  • New (school) clothes.

  • New (football) seasons.

 Months back we shared how God had (again) lined us up at the starting gate only to have Him (again) say “Now Wait”. Fourteen months later a new season, ‘new’ carpets, new paint, new certainty (that somehow there was a test in all this, for which i hadn’t planned or realized i was taking. anyone?) of new purpose.

 A few pages back we shared closet (and desk) organizing 101. Action is the agent of change. Here’s one more ‘new’ from around our home~

Home improvement 101…truly ‘Helping Hand s’ ministering .(via known and anonymous ‘Angels’ of Goodwill who see our need and make it happen).

  • New Testimony.

  • New Hope.

  • New Trust.

 Sharing just another glimpse into our Now Life.   Shandra

One Reply to “All New Step 2”

  1. Dear fellow blogger,
    10 years ago this week many people watched as airplanes crashed into the World Trade Center in downtown New York, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania. Hundreds of innocents perished because of the hatred of a handful of people whom they had never met before.
    Perhaps you know what it is like to suffer tragedy in your life even if you were not one of the many who lost family that day. Perhaps you feel like an airplane has crashed into your heart, and that your dreams and hopes have come crashing down. If that’s the case I do not claim to have answers for all the questions you may have. But I do know where you can find the hope you need. God can save you not only from being a victim of someone else’ hatred, but also from being a perpetrator. All people have been terrorized to some extent by those around them, and all people are guilty of terrorizing others. But God wants to both forgive you for your sins (2 Peter 3:9) and to give you a home in heaven where there will be no more pain (Revelation 21:4).
    There is much in this world that is out of our control. We can never know ahead of time if someone may try to kill us, or if we will die by some natural means. But if we trust in Jesus for salvation we can be sure that we will spend eternity with God after we die (I John 5:13). That is because Jesus has already died for our sins (Romans 5:8-9). If you accept this free gift by believing and repenting you will be saved (Acts 17:30-31). But if you reject this gift you reject the only way to escape God’s wrath (II Thessalonians 1:7). God loves you, but He also loves the people you hurt, and He will avenge them by punishing you if you are too unfeeling too admit how much you have sinned against them.
    Thanks for listening to my message. I hope that you have a peaceful week and that God will lead you to eternal peace of the soul.
