You're the STAR - Week#4 HOME (May 2024)

I always feel uncomfortable saying "HAPPY" Memorial Day because it is such a serious holiday - remembering those who served and gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.  Instead I'll say: "God bless".
Thank you again for joining us!

God's Power Within Us #8 - GOD'S LIGHT SHINES IN OUR HEARTS

SundayPower8

God's Power Within Us #8 - God's Light Shines in our Hearts

Today we continue learning about God's Power within us.  God's Word is full of passages talking about His power and showing us that we have nonstop access to His strength every second of every day.

Today we will be focusing on 2 Corinthians 4 (entire chapter)

Remember, Jesus said that we (Spirit filled Christians) are able to perform all of the miraculous works that Jesus did when He was here in human form.  Actually, Jesus said that we would do EVEN GREATER than what He did (see Scripture passage below).

SundayPower


John 14:12-14 also shows us how powerful the name of Jesus Christ is:  "If you ask anything in My name".  (It is important to note that these miracles must glorify our Heavenly Father).


Below is the featured "power" passage for May:

2 Corinthians 4

We begin by focusing on something so simple and practical - "setting forth the truth plainly."  Paul is explaining that when he shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ he does NOT have to use trickery or deception, nor does he have to twist God's Word.  Instead, he simply puts forth the truth.  
Truth is powerful!
(see Scripture passage below)

SundayPower8c

Light is truly amazing.  If you are in a dark room, just a little bit of light will be able to be seen by all in that room - light overcomes darkness.  If you are in a sun filled room - it is impossible to overcome light with darkness.
In the Bible passage below we learn that God has made His light shine in our hearts.  And this light allows us to see clearly and understand!  God's glory is displayed in light!

SundayPower8b

This understanding is like gold - so valuable!  As we learn from the Bible verse below, Jesus' light that shines in our heart is the "all-surpassing power of God."

Let's define "surpass" 
Surpass - greatly exceeding others

It is vital to note that this power is NOT from us - it is from God (again, see verse below)

SundayPower8d

In verse 15 it says:

 "All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God."

The grace (forgiveness and everlasting life) that is possible through Jesus Christ, shines from all believers and overflows from each one of us;  thereby reaching those around us! 

SundayPower8a

God's light that fills our heart benefits both us and those around us (see passage above).  God's glory is seen by those around us through our actions and our words.  This light also renews us daily!!  God's light is everlasting.  

Even though our physical bodies wear down - our inner strength and wisdom continues to get stronger because we are filled with God's light.

Prolific Raspberry Growth (with RECIPES)

FruitRaspberryGrowth

Prolific Raspberry Growth (with RECIPES)

Raspberry bushes grow very fast when compared to blackberry bushes.  A few years ago I shared how it took almost 10 years before my blackberry patch was producing usable quantities (click HERE to view: "A Fruit Grower's Patience - BLACKBERRIES").  My raspberry patch has only taken 3 years to get to a prolific stage.

Three years ago we planted 5 plants that were half the size of the raspberry bush picture below:


unnamed (31)

Now just look at how wonderfully the raspberry bushes have spread!! (see in the picture below - NOTE:  the very front of this picture is a blackberry bush but everything filled in between the treeline behind are all raspberry bushes):

unnamed (36)

unnamed (28)

Some of the plants are "everybearing" (which means that there will be two harvests - one in the summer and then in the Fall).  We already have tender fruit formation.

unnamed (29)

The picture below shows the filled in raspberry patch from the opposite side:

unnamed (30)

If you have the garden space, it's really worth a short wait of three years to enjoy garden fresh raspberries!


The following are a few of my favorite RASPBERRY recipes that I previously shared with you on this blog.
