Extravigant Valentine Gift







Being gracious is the most extravagant gift of all.




Sometimes people are just plain mean.  No matter how nice you've been, no matter how many times you have happily endured their behavior....
So at what point does Jesus say "Ok, that's enough you don't have to be gracious any more."


You and I both know the answer.....seventy times seven.....:-o.....seriously God? 
On paper, it sounds possible.  I am here to tell you my patients get tried in this area more that I care to expound on.
People who accuse,  say hurtful things both to your face and behind your back.....


How do we have extravagant grace toward those people?


First, a reality check.  If it weren't for God's extravagant grace I would be as lost as a goose and have no hope on my own.  He is my everything, my breath, my sanity, my Redeemer, the Lover of my soul, my Rock my Hiding Place! Woe, He is so good.


Second, it's not our grace we are extending, but rather sharing the grace of God.  It's what He wants. 
Grace is the age in which we live,  it's is supposed to be the word that defines us as Christians.
Truthful.....absolutely......gracious......you better believe it!

Mandisa - Overcomer (Lyric Video)

Calm down about things that don't matter,

Picking your battles wisely is a life quality that everyone should adopt. Ask your self:      why does this bother me      what will happen if I don't respond      will my opinion change the outcome      can I find a positive way to express the way this makes me I feel       When serious things do happen (and they will) over the top responses will only serve to hurt you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and  you will alienate people after time........... Discipline your thought life!   Don't allow every minor irritation make you irrational! Try focusing on  the positive and meditating on the blessings of God and watch the small problems fade from sight......... Philipians 4:8 Finally, brethren.....whatsoever things that are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
