Overview

In Victim of Grace, bestselling author Robin Jones Gunn takes a deeply personal look at the mystery of God working in our lives in ways we can’t see. No matter what obstacles, heartaches, or difficulties have assailed us, we are not at the mercy of circumstances. We are victims of his grace.


Publishers Description

Robin Jones Gunn reveals poignant truths from her life as well as from the lives of women in the Bible as she flips the notion that we are at the mercy of circumstances. She asks, what if God has dreams for you? What if he is accomplishing those dreams in the midst of shattered hopes? When life doesn’t go as expected, it’s easy to feel like a victim. We look at the events that have gone wrong and view our lives as impaired. What if we could see our future as God sees it? Would our view radically change if we understood we are indeed victims rather than of happenstance? God, the Relentless Lover, has vigorously sought you. He has instilled dreams in your heart that are grander than you can imagine. But the route to their fulfillment often is through a path you wouldn’t seek. What if God wants to take the hopes that tug at your heart and enliven them? Are you ready to live inside the mysterious joy of being a victim of grace?

GIVE THE GIFT THAT MATTERS       file0001880091634  FIND IT AT ROBIN’SPIRITUAL NEST

Appreciate The Military Folks You Meet

by Michael D. Hume, M.S.

I met a new friend today, by the name of Anthony, who is a neighbor here in the beautiful southern Colorado countryside. I dropped by his house to ask about his fence (Colonel Wife wants one just like it), and he was kind enough to give me the name and number of the guy who installed it (another neighbor). During the course of the conversation, I learned that Anthony and I have something in common: we were both serving in the 82nd Airborne Division in the early ’80s.

When I meet a combat veteran like Anthony, I’m sometimes embarrassed to say what I did during my military service: I was just a lowly Army journalist, not a front-line trooper like Anthony. But I’m never embarrassed to talk about the unit with which I served. The 82nd Airborne Division is nicknamed “America’s Guard of Honor” for many good reasons, and serving with the 82nd helped give me a combination of confidence and humility that’s served me well throughout my career, from business ownership, to private investing, to working for all kinds of companies from manufacturers to dinner theaters.

Anthony told me he “got blown up” in Afghanistan, serving with another unit (he had moved on from the 82nd). That incident ended a long career with the military, and though he said he still suffers a little from his disability (I couldn’t tell), he’s almost back to 100 per cent. I shook his hand, and I definitely thanked him for his service.

I travel quite a bit, and whenever I’m in an airport I always make a point of having a supply of blank greeting cards inscribed (anonymously) with “Thank you for your service” and which include a $20 bill. I try to hand out one or two in every airport, to uniformed American service members. My favorite airport in which I got to hand out cards was the Frankfurt airport in Germany – and I was saddened to hear that, a few months ago, some terrorists killed a couple of our uniformed military guys in that same airport. Remember this: wherever they are, even in what seems like the relative safety of a public airport in a “safe” country, our military folks are always in danger. Do what you can to give them aid and comfort when you see them. You don’t have to give hand-outs, such as $20 bills, but do stick your hand out and say thank you.

The world is a tough and dangerous place, and the gathering global clouds promise to bring more than just economic storms. The middle east and northern Africa are on fire… Europe is struggling… China wants new predominance but still struggles to feed its millions… and America, the nation to which the rest of the world looks for leadership and assistance, is beset by every sort of challenge from economic disaster to the wrath of Mother Nature. Whether it’s protecting our national interests from armed bad guys overseas, or helping pull little old ladies out of rising flood waters in Missouri, our military folks are out there trying to make America and the world safer and better, every single day.

Whether you agree or not with the “mission” they’ve been given in certain parts of the world, our military members deserve our appreciation, and our gratitude. It’s not too much to ask. And you should always look for things to appreciate. Being good at appreciation is one of the first steps toward becoming good at inspiration.

Last year, stores within The Association for Christian Retail accepted the challenge of sending 100,000 Bibles in 100 days to men and women in uniform. The goal was reached threefold, and this year, the goal is 500,000 Bibles by Dec. 31. Just like last year, you can write a personal message to one of the members of our military on the inside cover of the Bible and then return to a LifeWay Christian Store to be sent. But unlike last year, there is a Bible for each branch of the armed forces, so you can choose which branch to send it to.

Special Moments with Scripture Tea

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother”

– Abraham Lincoln. 

Abraham

Mothers are very much like angels. They protect us and guide us through life. They are a constant example for their children. So that one day, their children may grow into adults that will make not only them proud, but God proud. A Mother’s unconditional love, protection, and sacrifice for her children is beyond remarkable.

A mother’s guidance is often a lighted path for her children. It is the perfect example of the scripture: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 NKJV Mother’s acts of love, let others see God’s good works.

For those who have lost their Mothers, Mother’s Day can be painful. The emotions you had towards her, during her life, do not go away. The relationship does not end, because the love does not stop. Love never dies. “No matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.” 1 Corinthians 13:3-7. So remember the love and beautiful memories you had with your Mother on this day.

Perhaps, you have someone who became a Mother figure in your life that you would like to take the time to recognize. Whatever the case, this day should be filled with love and beautiful memories.

Any time I leave my Mother’s house or leave to go on a trip; there is one scripture my Mother always says to me: “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” Psalms 91:11. Well Mom you are one of the angels God has given me. I love you and appreciate your guidance and love. Take a moment to tell your Mother how much she means to you, not just today but every chance you can. They deserve it!

Is the current economic and political crisis actually prophesied in the Bible?  Whats going on - 90149http://www.spiritualnest.net/index.php?module=viewitem&item=90149

If so, what are we to do about it? It is hard to piece together all this information in a way that gives a comprehensive picture of what the end times will look like. That’s why so many theories abound.

There is no other book like this. You’ll find it the ultimate study tool for understanding the future. You’ll have a greater sense of comfort that, even in these crazy times, God is indeed in control. If bible prophecy as always been a mystery to you, Dr. Jeremiah’s book will help you solve the mystery. At last, bible prophecy can make sense, and make a difference…

Listening and Doing

Each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed –

James 1:14

We are surrounded by unseen dangers. The toxic realities of temptation and the weaknesses of our own frailty endangers our lives. These hidden dangers are inside of us.

We have a natural tendency to sin compounded by blind spots that prevent us from seeing our own weaknesses, which can lead to choices that ruin us. Our Daily Bread, Bill Crowder, April 6, 2013.

James 1:23-25  Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.

The Verdict

After living what I felt was a ‘decent’ life, my time on earth came to the end.

The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house. The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table.

As I looked around I saw the ‘prosecutor’.  He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen.  I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney, a kind and gentle looking man whose appearance seemed so familiar to me, I felt I knew Him.

The corner door opened and there appeared the Judge in full flowing robes.  He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room. I couldn’t take my eyes off of Him.  As He took His seat behind the bench, He said, ‘Let us begin.’

The prosecutor rose and said, ‘My name is Satan and I am here to show you why this man belongs in hell.’

He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things that I stole, and In the past when I cheated others. Satan told of other horrible perversions that were once in my life, and the more he spoke, the further down in my seat I sank.
I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t look at anyone, even my own Attorney, as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten about.

As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things about me, I was equally upset at My Attorney who sat there silently not offering any form of defense at all. I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had done some good in my life – couldn’t that at least equal out part of the harm I’d done?

Satan finished with a fury and said, ‘This man belongs in hell, he is guilty of all that I have charged and there is not a person who can prove otherwise.’

When it was His turn, My Attorney first asked if He might approach the bench. The Judge allowed this over the strong objection of Satan, and beckoned Him to come forward.  As He got up and started walking, I was able to see Him in His full splendor and majesty.

I realized why He seemed so familiar; this was Jesus representing me, my Lord and my Savior.  He stopped at the bench and softly said to the Judge, ‘HI, DAD,’ and then He turned to address the court.  ‘Satan was correct in saying that this man had sinned, I won’t deny any of these allegations. And, yes, the wage of sin is death, and this man deserves to be punished.’
Jesus took a deep breath and turned to His Father with outstretched arms and proclaimed, ‘However, I died on the cross so that this person might have eternal life and he has accepted Me as his Savior, so he is Mine.’
My Lord continued with, ‘His name is written in the Book of Life, and no one can snatch him from Me. Satan still does not understand yet. This man is not to be given justice, but rather mercy.’

As Jesus sat down, He quietly paused, looked at His Father and said, ‘There is nothing else that needs to be done. I’ve done it all..’

The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down. The following words bellowed from His lips…..

‘This man is free. The penalty for him has already been paid in full. Case dismissed.’

I asked Jesus as He gave me my instructions where to go next, ‘Have you ever lost a case?’ Christ lovingly smiled and said, ‘Everyone that has come to Me and asked Me to represent them has received the same verdict as you, ~Paid In Full.’

 ‘Stop telling God how big your storm is. Instead, tell the storm how big your God is!

Where Will You Spend Eternity – Item No. 549149

Where Will You Spend Eternity?  Item No. 549149

Jews, Gentiles, Atheists, Believers and Non-believers The Bible prophecies are being fulfilled The world is in worse evil chaos than in the days of Noah. Did the 7 year tribulation period start October 22, 2006? Your only hope is in the Messiah our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you shall be saved.” Acts 16:31 Where will you spend eternity? Only one runway to heaven to meet the Lord Jesus in the air. You must be born again of the Spirit to enter the kingdom of God. All have sinned and need the Savior Lord Jesus.  Repent from your sins and get your reservation in heaven? Christians build character through suffering by faith in Christ. The devil, the father of lies, deceives and blinds non-believers.  No party in hell. The lake of eternal fire will be a hell of a place.  Before you commit suicide try Jesus. Experience true love, hope and joy forever.

The Irony, The Scandal and His Greatness

The Irony, The Scandal and His Greatness

SCANDALOUS

Carson identifies the following four ironies in the crucifixion:

1. The man who is mocked as King is the King
2. The man who is utterly powerless is powerful
3. The man who can’t save himself saves others
4. The man who cries out in despair trusts God

Scandalous (Re-Lit)
