Makes You Think!

God chastised me yesterday. I was reading all of my friend bloggers and I ran across a picture and a small excerpt on Jason's page (he used to be the youth pastor at my parent's church). Anyway...he had a picture of an older gentleman from a local HOMELESS shelter with the biggest smile on his face because he had just been baptized. Ouch! Here I am taking my God forgranted and whining that we have a house we can't get rid of and that we are still renting. How much do you want to bet that this fellow would LOVE to switch places with my life? And you know what else? If I weren't a Christian, he would probably just as soon tell me to keep my life because he'd rather be homeless and have Christ than to have a house and NO Christ.

Thank you God for caring for the rich, the poor and the in between. Thank you God for being my Saviour. Please forgive me God for taking your love and your provisions forgranted. Thank you for the roof over my head and the food in my pantry. Thank you that YOU know what will happen and it will all fit into YOUR plan for my life. Amen

Please check Jason's site out and check the awesome picture out. He's right there in my side bar.
