Holly Ridge Happenings

A boy asked his father. Dad, what is the size of God? 

Then the father looked up at the sky and saw a plane and asked his son, “What is the size if the plane? 

The boy replied, “it is very small, I can hardly see it.” 

Then the father took him to the airport and as they approached a plane, he asked: “Now, my son, how big is this plane?” 

The boy replied, “Wow dad, it’s huge!.”

Then the father told him, “God’s size depends on how close or far you are to Him. The closer you are to Him, the Greater and Greater He will be in your life.

I have always thought that Noah was safe inside the Ark because he built it according to God’s specifications. I thought that perhaps it was the strength of the gopher wood and the soundness of the architecture that ensured that the waters of the food would not come into the Ark.

But today I encountered a verse that shifted this whole paradigm. Let’s read what Genesis 7:16 says. “The animals going in were male and female of every living thing as God had commanded Noah. Then God shut him in.”

Church is not something you go to, it’s a family you belong to. 

When you wake up say: Jesus, I love you.

When leaving the house, say: Jesus, come with me.

When you feel like crying, say: Jesus, hug me.

When you feel happy say: Jesus, I adore you.

When you do something, say, Jesus, help me.

When you make a mistake say, Jesus, forgive me.

When you go to sleep, say, Thank you, Jesus, and cover me with your Holy Mantle. God loves you.

When God wanted to create fish, He spoke to the sea.

When God wanted to create trees, He spoke to the earth. 

But when God wanted to create man, He turned to Himself. 

Then God said:  “Let us make man in our image and in our likeness.”  

Note: If you take a fish out of the water it will die; and when you remove a tree from soil, it will also die. Likewise, when man is disconnected from God, he dies. God is our natural environment. We were created to live in HIS presence. We have to be connected to Him because it is only in Him that life exists.

The Mastery of Self

No one is responsible for your emotional reactions except for you. Others can say and do anything they like but what happens inside you is only the result of what you are thinking and feeling. We are not all in the same boat. We are in the same storm. Some have yachts, some canoes, and some are drowning. Just be kind and help whoever you can.
