BONUS DAY #254

We had to call in a plumber today.  Unexpectedly, but urgent–fortunately we found a new one in our new area we live and he was able to come over and take care of a couple of issues in our new house.  He said something very interesting.  He was a believer in Christ and made that known pretty soon after arriving.  He said, “I’m always open to what God has for me each day.  I always ask Him to send me places I can talk about and share about the Lord.”  Pretty cool.  It sure made the bill he presented feel like it was God’s direction.

Every day is a Bonus Day.

BONUS DAY #253

What to do when you know you should attend something you really don’t think is necessary, but seems like you need to make an appearance?  I guess you get ready and go–which we did.  Interestingly, where ever we find ourselves we should make the best and look for the God opportunities.  It occurred to me during this whole situation that they only time there are not God opportunities is when you allow your attitude to degenerate to the place of disrespect, sarcasm, criticism, or mockery.  Where ever you go, and whatever you do where you go–the key for God working is to keep your attitude God focused.

BONUS DAY #252

It was great to make an annual visit to the Church of the Heartland’s Bible College now called “Growth Track.”  My subject is usually Leadership and Pastor Heath Hiatt let’s me take it any form I want to go.  I was going along on the concept of really tuning into God and suddenly God directed me toward people who were thinking about ending their own life.  Quite a departure from the subject at hand, I don’t know why I was directed that way, but I went with it and talked about how God cares and people care.  The class is/was put in video form and put up on YouTube, so one never knows who might eventually tune in.  Bonus days teach me not to take anything for granted–and simply follow the nudge of the Holy Spirit.

BONUS DAY #251

Seeking God’s wisdom is as simple as asking Him for wisdom and clarity.  In James it says to ask God for wisdom in faith believing He is providing it.  Today I needed wisdom in a couple of small things AND a couple of big things (at least big to me).  I shouldn’t be amazed how God always comes through, but He did AND (He does).  Is there anything you need wisdom in?  Just ask Him.

BONUS DAY #250

I was back on my Job 31 writing project “I will make a covenant with my eyes” today.  It is my proposed project to be published in 2019.  I say “proposed” just like my Jewish friend and Tour Guide, Eli Rockowitz says, “God-willing” at the end of proposed scheduling.  Eli’s use of it got me to thinking of how little control I have (we all have) over the things we proposed to do, to see, or participate in.  Everything in life needs to be guided by our gentle yielding that says “If it is God’s will”–thereby always, always, always, submitting my will to God’s will.
