Allow Jesus to do the math: Intertwining Your Faith with Everyday Life

As I was planning for today, yesterday, it occurred to me that I hadn’t written my blog. So, I started praying and asking the Lord what to write about. When I woke up this morning, I still had no answer. Driving to the 6 a.m. prayer, it was foggy, and I said to myself, Lord, I'm not seeing anything. The scripture, 1 Corinthians 13:12-13 came to mind, "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity." It's telling us that we aren't seeing our Lord clearly now, but one day we will see Him face-to-face. However, until then, we are to trust steadily in Him, hope steadfastly, and love extravagantly, and the best of these three is love.

While in prayer at the church, my mind wandered to the go-live on Monday, A Three Generational Perspective. I had been so busy with the two-week summit, Beginners Guide to Christianity, that I had also neglected to write that summary also. So, I flipped to John 6:1-15, and was engrossed in yet another Bible story. I love the way God works. I thought about the lad with the five loaves of bread and two fish. When he gave his food to the disciples, what was he thinking? They were out in the desert with nothing around. He had no way of replacing his food conveniently. Would I give up what I had to eat? Or would I be thinking, why would I give up my food, so you can have something to eat and I would have nothing? At least I was smart enough to bring food. But thank God, the lad didn't think like me. By giving his food to the disciples, he witnessed a miracle. By sacrificing his little, Jesus was able to make much. 

Today, I ask us, what little can we sacrifice so Jesus can multiply into much?

  • God is always speaking. "For God speaks again and again," Job 33:14 TLB

  • God is love and he loves us unconditionally. "How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings." Psalm 36:7

  • Don't be selfish with what you have. "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others." Philippians 2:3-4

By reading and practicing the above scriptures…over time, I’ve been learning how to incorporate Christ into every area of my life.

Below are two books that God has inspired me to write. "The Flip Side" and "Blinded By Sight: The Heart Matters" both available now.

So… what’s this book about?

“The Flip Side” depicts the possible feelings and emotions of lesser-known Biblical characters as they navigated their lives in the shadows of the more popular characters in the Bible. While the Bible gives us snippets of their stories, we are usually left in the dark about their true motives, desires, and thoughts concerning the situations they are in. However, one certainty is that despite how little we know about these characters, they were often the catalysts to pivotal moments in the main characters’ lives.

So… what’s this book about?

Join me on a journey of self-discovery. “Blinded by Sight - The Heart Matters” is a compilation of short biblical devotions. These stories are not conclusive. They are depictions of how God is revealing my heart to me.

My prayer is, Lord, make it real for me, show me your heart, show me my heart, and give me the wisdom to change what hinders my relationship with you. I am learning that my perception is my biggest obstacle it affects my mind, what I think, and how I process my experiences. What I have experienced in my mind is expressed through my feelings and these experiences dictate my choices either consciously or subconsciously.

This devotional will allow you to explore and evaluate your past and present situations that have hindered you from seeing the heart of the matter. Simply put, look at the heart – it does matter. Your future depends on it!

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4
