Happy Leap Day!
Take the leap of faith and
believe in Jesus Christ.

"Then Peter took him by the right hand
and pulled him up.
Immediately the beggar's feet
and ankles became strong;
he jumped up, stood for a moment,
then began to walk around.
He went into the temple with them ---
walking, jumping about, and praising God."
Acts 3:7-8

The Lord takes you by the hand.
Will you stand up?
Will you take the step of faith?
You will jump/leap for joy.

Yesterday at work I talked to someone
that I have not seen in many years.
It was their first day at work.
Our lives are in parallel.
We went to the same school as kids.
We lived in the same house at different times.
I would get his junk mail at my house.
We worked for the same businesses.
God bless him and his family.

"Jesus aware of all that would happen to him,
stepped forward and said to them,
'Who is it you want?'
'Jesus the Nazorean,' they replied.
'I am he,' he answered."
John 18:4-5

Jesus knew that he would suffer and die.
He still continued.
He offered up his life for us.
He loves us very much.
Give him thanks and praise.

The sister of my neighbor is very sick and near death.
She is in a hospice in Omaha.
Pray for her and her family.

"To sum up, then:
just as a single offense brought condemnation to all men,
a single righteous act brought all men acquittal and life.
Just as through one man's disobedience all became sinners,
so through one man's obedience all shall become just."
Romans 5:18-19

Adam sinned.
He was the first man.
He was God's creation.
He did wrong.
An odd note was struck.
It was way off key.
Jesus came to set the record straight.
He did good.
He came to create harmony.

(February 25, 2012 Sat 9:03 AM CST)

Someone that I work with died of cancer suddenly.
I read the email at work on Wednesday.
It kind of shocks you to read the words.
I did talk to him a few times in the hallway
but I did not know him very well.
Pray for him and his family at this difficult time.

"I am sure of this much:
that he who has begun
the good work in you
will carry it through to completion,
right up to the day of Christ Jesus."

He will help you every step of the way.
He is guiding you to wholeness.
One day you will be completely at peace
and filled with joy.

"To the one who wins the victory,
who keeps to my ways till the end,
I will give authority over the nations ---
the same authority I received from my Father.
He shall rule them with a rod of iron
and shatter them like crockery;
and I will give him the morning star."
Revelation 2:26-28

Stay faithful to the end.
Be a bright morning star to all those near you.
Show the love of Christ.
Victory is yours.

It is Ash Wednesday.
We begin the journey of Lent today.

We have much to learn.

"Jesus said to them,
'Come after me;
I will make you fishers of men.'
They immediately abandoned their nets
and became his followers."
Mark 1:17-18

Simon and Andrew dropped everything and followed Jesus.
Can we do the same?
Can we leave our sins behind and move forward?
Drop what you can and set out
on the journey of a lifetime.
Now is the time.

(February 21, 2012 Tue 6:27 AM CST)

"A family record of Jesus Christ,
son of David, son of Abraham.
Abraham was the father of Isaac,
Isaac the father of Jacob,
Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers."
Matthew 1:1-2

Jesus was the promised Messiah.
He was part of the House of David .
He was descended from Abraham.
He was part of the plan to save you and me.
He is your salvation.

Jesus taught,
"He may be likened to the man who,
in building a house, dug deeply and
laid the foundation on a rock.
When the floods came
the torrent rushed in on that house,
but failed to shake it
because of its solid foundation."
Luke 6:48

Build your life on a solid foundation.
Jesus is your rock.
He is your strength and power for each day.
Build with confidence.
Your future is secure with him.

The mother of someone I used to work
with passed away recently.
Pray for them and all their family.

"Jesus then began to tell
the people the following parable:
'A man planted a vineyard,
leased it to tenant farmers,
and went away for a long time.
At vintage time he sent a servant
to the tenant farmers to receive
his share of the crop from them;
but they beat him and
sent him away empty-handed.'"
Luke 20:9-10

You have been given a great gift --- life.
What are you doing with your time here on earth?
Are you building the kingdom of God?
Use your talents for the Lord's work.

"When they came out the water,

and he went announcing the good news
in all the towns until he reached Caesarea."

We need to bring the pressure down.
God bless him and all those in his office.

"In view of this,
we must attend all the more
to what we have heard,
lest we drift away."

A distant cousin of mine passed away recently.
God bless them and their family.

"Then Jesus reentered the boat, made the crossing,
and came back to his own town.
There the people at once brought him
a paralyzed man lying on a mat.
When Jesus saw their faith he said to the paralytic,
'Have courage, son, your sins are forgiven.'"

"I thank Christ Jesus our Lord,
who has strengthened me,
that he has made me his servant
and judged me faithful.
I was once a blasphemer, a persecutor,
a man filled with arrogance;
but because I did not know
what I was doing in my unbelief,
I have been treated mercifully,
and the grace of our Lord
has been granted me in overflowing measure,
along with the faith and love
which are in Christ Jesus."

If anyone loves the world,
the Father's love has no place in him,
for nothing that the world affords
comes from the Father."
1 John 2:15-16

Don't hold on too tightly to the things of the world.

Keep your focus on Jesus.
He will bring you home safely one day.

(February 7, 2012 Tue 6:44 AM CST)

We received about 5 inches of snow yesterday in Omaha.
We needed the moisture.

I continue to learn more about iPhone development.
The examples in the book I'm reading do not always work.
Many people have problems with developing apps.
You can spend many hours and not get very far.

"When all the people were baptized, and
Jesus was at prayer after likewise being baptized,
the skies opened and the Holy Spirit
descended on him in visible form like a dove.
A voice from heaven was heard to say:

On you my favor rests.'"

You shall not commit adultery;
You shall not steal;
You shall not bear false witness;
You shall not defraud;
Honor your father and your mother.'"

There are 10 commandments .

"There was a man named John sent by God,
who came as a witness to testify to the light,
so that through him all men might believe ---
but only to testify to the light,
for he himself was not the light.
The real light which gives light to every man
was coming into the world."
John 1:6-9

The light is coming.
He is already here.
He is all brightness.
He is pure and holy.
Learn all about Jesus.
He is the light of the world.
