In the book of Chronicles, there was a king who started his reign at 8 years old named Josiah. When they tore down the pagan places of worship and rebuilt the temple of God, they found the book of the law, or the Bible; at least what was written so far. The king and the people repented and the city went into a revival of the word of God and living righteously. The Lord said that King Josiah was the greatest king so far and none better came later, says the word of God. The reason God said this was because Josiah had a tender heart towards God and his word. Do we have a tender heart for God and his word? Or is it sitting collecting dust? Do we have a tender heart for God? A lot of times no because we are too busy thinking of ourselves instead of putting God first. If you want to read about King Josiah it is in 2 Chronicles chapter 34-35. Lets have a tender heart towards God and his word. Till tomorrow.

Well we started daylight savings time off with a bang in North Carolina. It snowed maybe an inch . Too warm while it is snowing it is also melting off at the same time, weird. Then by lunchtime it is all gone aaahhnn. It was just a strange morning all around. Went to church and I am glad I didn’t miss it. Good Sunday school lesson and great sermon by the pastor.I have had a full day full of a lot of things. My boy is going back to college today, spring break is over. I hope he has a safe trip. See ya tomorrow peeps.
Do you feel like dragging on Monday? with a whole work week ahead, so many things to do. You are probably not alone, there are plenty of people who feel like that. Mondays will be my religious chat, everyday will be filled with a different topic. Back to topic, we all feel draggy or bummed about Mondays but if we will remember, Christ is our strength and he has it all under control.He plans our steps and our ways and our weeks. He is in control of it all, he created the world from nothing so surely he can control our lives. His word also says, work as if you were working for him . So don’t cut corners or cheat your boss or company out of a full days work. Lean on him he will give you the strength and ability to do a good job. See ya tomorrow.
In my devotions today, I came across a passage I just can’t shake. I already knew it, but it is awesome and freeing to think about. Let me share: It deals with how everything we have belongs to the Lord. I mean everything, all of it from our breath that we breathe, to our money, because he gave you a job and a body to do it with. We own nothing that is ours, he owns it all. That is something to praise about. He is our Lord, our creator, our sustainer, our savior, the everlasting one. He paid a great price for it when he gave his own life for us. We are his doulos, which in Greek means slave and a thankful one at that. Now I don’t mean a slave as we know of slaves, but someone who is willing, because of what he did for us. I usually don’t talk a lot about religion on here, but I am a Sunday school teacher so what do you expect lol. See ya tomorrow.
