Piece #48 - Mission Field


This posting is kind of a sequel to the last posting dealing with Self-Image #47. I mentioned in that post that instead worrying about your appearance, maybe you're better off trying to show others what you can do rather than concerning yourself with appearances. Being able to go out and help others is called the mission field...or basically glorifying God. If you simply do something helpful to someone else and not boasting about it then you're giving God the glory. It doesn't mean you have to go to some foreign country and hand out bibles to be on a mission. In many ways, my classroom is my mission field. I see hundreds of students every day and there are a few times when religion is brought up by the students and I'm able to talk with them about it. I will be honest and tell you that there are times when I wish I could do more than just be in the classroom, but I realize this is where the Lord wants me to be and I'll just have to deal with it. So...You never know what you might do or be doing to glorify God.

To the ones who are not sure how you all stand with God, I want to let you know that I understand. There is a lot of uncertainty with the whole believing in something you can't see. I would like to charge you with a mission of your own. Look around at the world we live in. Observe all the amazing things that happen on this planet; don't you find it a little odd that things in our universe seem to run rather efficiently? Almost like a perfect harmonious flow. That's not on accident or a simple perceived mechanics...what is it? God? Is it just a simple spiritual/natural balance? Only you can make that determination. I can't tell you how you should think, but you might give God a chance...you never know.

I want to encourage everyone to go out and make the most of this life, but at the same time helping others as well. I think you'll find it can be very rewarding. Make a difference as long as you are here because remember, we're not going to be here forever.

Song of Inspiration [Check it out on iTunes or Android!]:

Song: "Give Me Your Eyes"

Artist: Brandon Heath

Album: What If We


When it comes to missions, this is what I pray for all of the time! It's tough to see what other people are thinking and feeling. This is a great song and video.










This is an ultrasound of my future granddaughter, Sophia. Although she's not in this world yet, she too will have a mission to fulfill when she is old enough.

Lost Piece #1 - The Gospel Truth

"I know my Jesus, I love Him, and I think if he needed me to believe that homosexuality was a sin, He would have mentioned it. He didn’t. When Jesus said that marriage was between a man and a woman, he was responding to a question about divorce, not sexuality.* And even the Gospels... well, even though they are gospel to me, I accept that they are also interpretations of what Jesus said and did and meant -we don’t have a single written word directly from Jesus. He could have left us something - he could have left another list of rights and wrongs when He came to Earth, but he chose not to." Glennon Doyle Melton - Aug 25, 2013
These words were penned by Ms. Glennon Doyle Melton who is an author and Christian blogger. Back in February of 2017 she announced that she was engaged to Abby Wambach a former Women's Soccer Champion. Glennon had been married to her husband (Craig Melton) for over 14 years before she divorced him due to his extramarital affairs.  Glennon had also o…

Broken Piece #1 - 13 Reasons Why

On March 31, 2017; the steaming service known as Netflix released a new mini series called "13 Reasons Why". This has quickly become one the most talked about series throughout the world.

Broken Piece #2 - Susan Boyle

For those of you who are not sure who is Susan Boyle, she was the second place winner to the show "Britain's Got Talent" in 2009. She sang the famous song from LesMis√©rables "I Dreamed the Dream". Since the show, Susan had been making guest appearances on a variety of shows and recorded several albums. Susan's first album alone broke several chart-records and was very well received around the world. I believe why she had such incredible appeal was because she was a perfect representative of all the 'regular people' in the world. She didn't come in flashy or striking but, modest and humble. When a person like Susan is thrown into the whirlwind of concerts, parties, media, and money, it's very difficult to stay grounded and not having your own personal world torn apart. Sadly for Susan Boyle, her tiny universe is crumbling. First, she did have a health scare when she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes that prompted her to lose weight. Second, …
