The Power of Ten Percent

This came across my desk bright and early, and I really appreciated it. I’m pretty much just copying and pasting the information, which is from WalkTheTalk.com, except for this paragraph. The point is, don’t give up on your dreams. Give 10% more. Now, I will quickly add that we need to make sure our dreams are what God is dreaming for us. Last Sunday we visited North Ridge Church, where Kathy’s boyfriend heads up the video production department. The pastor, Brad Powell, gave a wonderful message from the life of Moses to demonstrate that “Where God guides, He provides.” Our first responsibility is to make sure we’re surrendered to God and following Him. “Provision” doesn’t mean a new car; it means basic food, clothing, and shelter. But, if we’re surrendered to God, waiting, watching, and following Him, then He will show us the way. After that, then I think the challenge in “The Power of Ten Percent” is great. Can we give 10% more than we are giving? Don’t dip into the basic things that make life possibile, like hours of sleep or proper health habits (spiritual, physical, and emotional), but can we give 10% more in prayer, in concentration, in effort, in conscious choice to do right, and in giving up unproductive self-indugences?

If You Need a Moment of Rest

How are you? I’ve been over my head with a writing project lately, so I haven’t done much else. I’m trying desperately to transcribe 25 years of letters I wrote home to my parents from 1975-2000 and trying to proof and compile them in time to make the Armstrong Archives to be bound in little books as Christmas gifts for my kids. This is a very consuming, totally delightful enterprise, and if I don’t blog much between now and January 1st, you’ll know why!

This morning, as Alan was reading Matthew 24 aloud to me, he stopped at verse 6: “And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you be not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

“How in the world are we supposed to ‘not be troubled’?” he mused. We realized that we were both struggling with feeling troubled, not only about the economic and social problems in America, but over the spiritual, economic, and civil problems world wide. I know the answer…it’s just learning to grasp the truth by faith and live it out. We have to learn to keep “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2). Instead of looking out at the problems, we need to look past our problems and up to God for the courage to endure until we experience the joy that will be ours when “this too has passed.”

Therefore, I’m not totally renouncing political concerns, but I’m taking a rest. Not from prayer, but from study and worry.  Someone passed along a very refreshing Celtic prayer with background scenes from Ireland. If you have a minute, take time to be blessed!
