Prayer request.  I just talked to my youngest sister.  Her adult daughter a young mother of three under 3, received news this week that tests results say she has Crohn's disease. She is the  bread winner right now because her husband is in school. She is believing for a miracle. Please pray with me for Jessica.

Spiritual Sunday

I got to thinking, shouldn't every day be Spiritual?

So many people keep their Spiritual clothes in the closet until Sunday morning.
They get up and put on their best mask, dust off their bible and head to church.

As they walk in the door they put on a smile like they put on their lip stick that morning.
They sing with gusto.
They shake hands and greet those around them with a "how are you this morning?" while thinking about if they turned off the iron.

They answer the same question with "Just fine thank you", while dying inside because of the pain of the argument with their spouse or their kids before they left home.

They put their offering in the basket, folded small so no one around them will know they put in less than they spent on their morning cup of java, bagel and news paper.

They say God Bless in the benediction before they run out the door to be the first in line at the local buffet.

Let's be real

Put on your Spiritual Garments every day!

Isaiah 61:3
bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. 

I pray God will bless you with a wonderful, fulfilling week full of 
His presence and peace.

You have a good point here. I don't ask anyone how they are at church unless I know I have a open heart and mind. I don't like to ask that in passing.

Great post Deb. This is so true and I have made it a point for a long time now to live everyday in a spiritual frame of heart and minds.

You are so right. Every day should be spiritual, not just Sunday. Thank you for this reminder.
Have a blessed spiritual week.

Your words are true.

What if God only thought of us on Sundays?
