   “HOW IS YOUR YEAR GOING?”

 

  One fourth of 2015 has passed us by.  As I look back, it has been good thus far, except for what I have chosen to call “The Texas White Malady” that blew our way a few times.  Unfortunately, we had to cancel worship services twice.  God has been good, as He always is.  I finally got around to reading my December/January PLUS, THE POWER OF FAITH, the little by-monthly magazine published by Guideposts that I enjoy reading.  There is an article in it, written by Faye Field, titled “Words for All Seasons.”   In it she wrote, “I’ve always had two great passions: words and growing things.  So this year I’m trying something new.  I’ve penciled in some “growing words” on each month of my 2015 calendar.”  I have decided to share her “growing words” with you.  (You can see and order this publication from Guideposts at ShopGuideposts.org)  I will give you her Jan-Mar.  “Words” and elaborate on April’s.

January: Jesus. For the next 12 months, again and again, I will try to stop and think what Jesus would say to this person, what He would do in that situation.

February: Friendship. This month I’ll try to be alert to more ways of expressing friendship --- with an encouraging word to the new checker at the supermarket, or a note of appreciation to an old friend.

March: Mildness. Blustery winds will remind me I want to be mild in temper, thoughtful of my language and actions in all situations, slow to take offense.

April: Adaptable. I won’t cling to last year’s way of doing a job if this year’s is better. When necessary changes come along, I will go along without dragging my feet.

 

ADAPTABLE

 

Adapting ourselves to “Letting go and letting God have his wonderful way in our lives” is easier said than done.  Yet, it is the best thing that we can strive to do.  It may be easier to remain in our old “comfort zones”, but, that may not be the best for living the life Christ calls us to live.  Living the Christian life is not always comfortable.  Our best measuring tool for adaptability may be asking ourselves, “What would Jesus Do?”  We can’t let ourselves get lost in an atmosphere of “I have never done it that way before”, or, as a church, “We have never done it that way before.”  Christians and churches can’t be “single-tracked mines at work.”  We have to be open to new challenges the Lord has for us and “Keep our eyes upon Jesus.”  Let’s think and pray about the Apostle Paul’s challenge in Romans 12:1-2.

“Therefore, I urge you, in view of God’s mercy, to offer yours bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – which is your spiritual worship.  Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
