Here is a Daily Inspiration from the Psalms for today...

November 4

Psalm 132:9

Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.

Reverend Fields felt very strongly about the matter. If a person was going to be a representative of the church, he needed to live a clean and upright life. Leaders need to lead by example, therefore church leaders ministered to others by the way they lived their lives. If a person wasn't ready to steer clear of questionable activities, then maybe he wasn't ready to step into a key role in the church.

All Christians assume the responsibility of being an example of nonbelievers. It is an awesome task, but one we must assume. Christ call us to a life of perfection. Each day we should strive harder to be more perfect than we were the day before. With God's help, we can clothe ourselves in righteousness, thus sending the message that to be Christian means to be different from the rest of the world. In Christ we are made new. Our newness is a light for all the world to see.

Prayer: Clothe me in Your righteousness, Lord, and make me an example of a new life in Christ. Let me serve You through my actions. Move me onward toward perfection. Amen.

Hope you enjoy the following Weekly Inspirational Word from Max Lucado

Your Promises-Land Life - UpWords - Week of May 5-11, 2017

by Max Lucado

Think about the Christian you want to be. What qualities do you want to have? More compassion? More conviction? More courage? What attitudes do you want to discontinue? Greed? Guilt? Endless negativity? Here’s the good news. You can. With God’s help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be--indeed, the person God made you to be. Paul said in 2 Corinthians 3:18 that we can live “from glory to glory.”

The walls of Jericho--they are already condemned. The giants are already on the run. The deed to your new life is already signed. It just falls to you to possess the land. Joshua 21:43 says, “So the Lord gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to their fathers--and they took possession of it and dwelt in it.” Your promised-land life-- It is yours for the taking.

From Glory Days

Been a long time since anyone shared in this thread so I will give it a whirl...I encourage you all to share your inspirations here...Blessings as you do and blessings on your weekend!

Purpose In Life

Christian Devotional about our purpose in life

"...Many plans are in a man's mind, but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand...."
- Proverbs 19: 21 (AMP)

We are all born for a purpose. We are not here by accident, but to fulfil a God-given destiny. We may have many plans for our lives, but as this verse says, "it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand." Sometimes God can change the direction we are going in. Sometimes it can be a radical change, or sometimes just a slight adjustment.

We need to ask God to show us His purpose for our lives - what He wants us to do. He will show us and help us to take steps towards fulfilling it.

God has a purpose and a destiny
That will last throughout eternity.

Valentine Treasures

Valentine treasures are people who
have often crossed your mind,
family, friends and others, too,
who in your life have shined
the warmth of love or a spark of light
that makes you remember them;
no matter how long since you've actually met,
each one is a luminous gem,
who gleams and glows in your memory,
bringing special pleasures,
and that's why this Valentine comes to you:
You're one of those sparkling treasures!

I love the traditions that kept the family together and we were all so close and peaceful. I wish it were still like that.

Sorry about the broken link - I really dont know how that happened

I could not find the original message but I have this podcast that says all we need to hear and all we need to know. MAY WE NEVER TAKE JESUS OUT OF THE EASTER MESSAGE. May he touch you through this message - listen while you spark.

Yes, MOMTOCONNOR2003 - I was raised with the same tradition of having a nice Easter outfit for church. So many of the old traditions have been forgotten with our busy schedules now.

With Easter being tomorrow I was talking to one of my daughter friends (9 years old) and we were talking about Easter Sunday. I ask her if she had gotten her Easter dress. She informed me she wore jeans to church. I live in the city now but I was raised in a country Southern Baptist Church. I still travel an hour every Sunday to go back to that same church. You would always go the extra mile on Easter Sunday to wear your best. You may wear tattered and torn the rest of the year but you always put on your best on Easter Sunday. I always take my children and go get them Easter outfits. I know it is very old school but it a family tradition I like to keep. That and you always take a family picture under the tree at Grandmas in your Easter best. We of course go to church and then have a lunch at Grandma's (my Grandma my childrens Great Grandma) and then the kids do an Easter Egg Hunt. Very off topic but I thought I would share my Easter tradition.

What does everyone else do for Easter Sunday

Thank you so much for sharing, but the link provided is incomplete and it goes to an error page. Can you fix it, please? Thanks a lot.

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.
