Where does God live?

I am not meaning to sound heretical at all, but having just returned from Alberta and the beauty of God’s creation it is easy to think that if God was choosing somewhere to dwell it might be right here.  The Psalmist often talked about lifting this eyes to “the hills” and in viewing the spectacular features of the geography was reminded that his help came from the Maker of Heaven and earth.  Mountains have that kind of impact upon people, especially when the birds call out, the stream flows by peacefully and the stillness of the moment is not interrupted, as most of our moments seem to be now, by the roar of industrial life.

 

In case I have not been entirely clear, I do not believe for a moment that God lives in a geographical location – far from it. The truth today for anyone who is willing is for God to reside in our “hearts” – that is the center of our being. God’s greatest creation is, of course, you – me – the man or woman made in His image.

The Fellowship of the Unashamed

I am a part of the fellowship of the Unashamed. I have the Holy Spirit
Power. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has
been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won’t look back, let up, slow
down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense,
and my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight
walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame visions,
mundane talking, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or
popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised,
regarded, or rewarded. I now live by presence, learn by faith, love by
patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.

My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is Heaven, my road is narrow, my
way is rough, my companions few, my Guide is reliable, my mission is clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, deterred, lured away, turned back, diluted,
or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the
presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the
pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of
mediocrity.

I won’t give up, back up, let up, or shut up until I’ve preached up, prayed
up, paid up, stored up, and stayed up for the cause of Christ. I am a
disciple of Jesus Christ. I must go until He returns, give until I drop,
preach until all know, and work until He comes.

And when He comes to get His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My
colors will be clear for “I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the
power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes..” (Romans 1:16)

More QR stuff – how to!

There was a question about this site following this post – thanks Atley for your comment. So I have posted these screen shots with some additional instructions.

QR Generator Page

Simple instructions

Once you’re on the site you need to first of all inset the URL that you want people to go to – ie. your blog address, facebook page which can be found in the URL address bar of that site.  In my case it was http://www.fredwaters.ca which you see I’ve inserted into the second image below.  Secondly, you’ll need to determine the kind of information you want to generate.  You’ll see the options: URL, text, phone, SMS – any of these contact points can be used.  So if you’re wanting someone to be able scan your QR code and get your phone number you can do that too!  Third, how large do you want your QR code?  I chose large – but then realized “wow that’s kind of big!  So though this post has the large one, I’ve changed the one in my side  bar to medium.
 
Finally – you’ll want to copy the code that is generated for your QR code – which sites just below the instructions.  Once you have that, you’re able to paste it into the appropriate place on your blog or wherever you’re going to use it.
Just for the record, I’m not endorsing this QR generating site – I simply found it, used it, liked it.
If you want to create a multitude of QR codes, in different colours, even in print I highly recommend thsi site!  This one is very good and the layout, while filled with more information is well organized and is very clear in the steps that need to take place.
