God’s Thoughts to Me

The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against His Anointed One. “Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God. But the One who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoff at them. (Psalm 2:2-4, NLT).

Small Minds

The world is a publishing house blessed with new mercies and empty sheets at the break of each dawn.

It yearns for small stories of love and beauty written with rays of sunlight and colored with rainbows flickering through frisky dew drops dancing on blades of grass.

imageBut the Tabloids of Life are written with the blood of murders and wars … the pain and sorrow of corruption … the putridness of crime … the infidelity of humanity.

The world’s Gazette is manipulated by a social hierarchy playing a game of chess with the minds of man. A Trinity of Terror splashes the front pages with lies and deception:

Politicians, puffed up with vanity, are leading their puppets, firmly gripping their strings of straw, into a pseudo peace beyond the grasp of any human mind. They are messing in the business of God.

Economists are promising an emaciated, starving world with beguiling lies, food and drink to feed and fill every empty belly groaning with hunger and thirst, seeking silently for breadcrumbs from the tables of the rich. They are playing God.

Religionists are building beautiful staircases to heaven, leading straight to hell, with tithes stolen from the overburdened naive, without lifting a finger to ease the sorrow of a suffering world. They think they are gods.

Yet, in the “Small’s” section of every newspaper, our little lives are interviewed daily. We are small advertisements, twinkling with the glory of grace … shining with the beauty of forgiveness … telling the wondrous story of love.

Much love and sweet blessings XX

  4. “Yet, in the “Small’s” section of every newspaper, our little lives are interviewed daily. We are small advertisements, twinkling with the glory of grace … shining with the beauty of forgiveness … telling the wondrous story of love.” I find the word “yet” to be such a hope renewing, refocusing word. Thanks for the reminder of who we are even in the midst of all there is around us.

    Our “small stories” can help set lives free in big ways…

    • Dear Jennifer

      Much love and sweet blessings XX

    • Dear Jen
      The news can and will make us very depressed if we do not keep our eyes on Jesus. We have His promise also that He already overcame this world.

  6. I loved your last comment (sorry I can’t quote it 🙂 ) and you are the nearest post that I haven’t already read as I went around linking up this morning. Nice to *see* you again Mia….have a blessed day, my sweet friend.

  7. You have painted such a thought provoking work picture here at Tell Me a Story – – about this world and those pulling the strings of the puppets. How glorious is it when Truth reighns instead of lies and deceit. May Jesus ever be lifted up and those seeking to tear him down be torn down instead.

  8. I love when you wrote: “We are small advertisements, twinkling with the glory of grace … shining with the beauty of forgiveness … telling the wondrous story of love.”

    That’s the good news everyone wants to read! Let us focus on the good news and not allow the stories of gloom and doom to steal our joy.

    • Hi Jerralea
      Sometimes the twinkling with our Lord’s glory, sharing His love and compassion is the only Bible people are interested in reading!
      Luv XX

    • Dear Lisa
      I agree. If our love doesn’t show the love our Lord, no amount of preaching will matter! So let us keep on twinkling the story of grace, my friend.

    • Dear Kim
      Thank you! There is no one as blind as those who don’t want to see and there is an enemy that loves lulling people into a false security!

  9. You paint with words such a painful picture of our world, but it needs to be seen and recognized. And I pray that we {Christians} are able to stand in stark contrast to these people who use others for personal gain, Mia. Thanks for the challenge, my friend!

  10. “The world is a publishing house blessed with new mercies and empty sheets at the break of each dawn.” I thought I left a comment for you but I don’t see it so..I’m posting again. I loved this piece from line one. I’ve said it before but you really do have a special gifting with words and images. Be blessed friend!

  11. Ok, it’s official. You ROCK! I love this one. Great line – “Tabloids of Life are written with the blood of murders and wars…” So true. But we know who the Master Editor is don’t we. What a comfort. Thank you once again for sharing your amazing voice.

    • Dear Debi
      What a great verse! Yes, even when we think our life is so insignificant, our Lord is the greatest story through us!

  12. One of my biggest frustrations is the way our leaders try to run the world from THEIR viewpoint, not turning to the Lord and trusting HIS. AND more people trust their leaders than they trust the Lord, too. So, our world has become very person-controlled instead of allowing our Lord to be the “controller”. He IS, He WILL.. and they will be shocked and surprised.

    Blessings…

    • Dear Joanne
      This is so true, but we have the wonderful comfort that we know our Lord Jesus has already overcame the world.

  13. Powerful post, Mia! Yes, sometimes I have to dig deep for the “good” news, those small news stories that demonstrate real love. And boy do I have to disconnect from all the other news for a bit or my heart becomes overwhelmed!

    • Hi Carrie
      Whenever I fell overwhelmed with this world, I keep reminding myself that Jesus already overcame this world and is making everything new!

  14. “Religionists are building beautiful staircases to heaven, leading straight to hell, with tithes stolen from the overburdened naive, without lifting a finger to ease the sorrow of a suffering world. They think they are gods.”
    WOW. So true!

  15. Wonderful post Mia! How true that we “advertise” what is deep in our hearts, and we should be a huge promoter of God’s love and amazing grace to those we come in contact with. Love, love this: “We are small advertisements, twinkling with the glory of grace … shining with the beauty of forgiveness … telling the wondrous story of love.”

    Love and blessings to you today sweet sister!
    Denise

  16. I love your perspective here, friend, and the thought of our lives being advertisements. Yours is one that shines our Father. Blessings to you! 🙂

  17. Wow…what beautiful words –they and the pictures really made your thoughts come alive for me and touched my heart. Keep writing with your heart–I can tell there is so much there! Linked up next to you at Heart Reflected.

  18. Hi Mia –
    Your post immediately brought to mind, 2 Corinthians 4: 6-7. So grateful that He shines through our cracks. I visited from The Weekend Brew this morning 🙂
    Blessings,
    Joanne

  19. Dear Mia,
    Yes, I want to be twinkling with His grace and pointing others to Him…I know I need His grace daily…blessings to you and I pray your son’s hand is healing well..love to you 🙂

  20. Hi Mia! I know that you are striving to be that twinkle, as are all of us. Even though we are in the corner, let’s let our smallness make way for the light and love of God!

    Thanks for your visit today!

  21. “We are small advertisements, twinkling with the glory of grace … shining with the beauty of forgiveness … telling the wondrous story of love.” Thank you Mia for these words. The possibilities I have today to advertise the glory and grace of God are endless. Thank you, New Friend, for the reminder. Let us advertise together for Him!

  22. And our Father will not be mocked. The very air they breath they use to mock Him and war against Him… and yet He loves them and calls them and uses us; the twinkling advertisements to show them His truth and love. May they open their eyes and hearts to His Majesty. Well done, sister.

    • Dear Floyd
      Yes, they don’t realize that they become puppets in the hand of the evil one! But, like you said, our Pappa loves them soooo much.

  23. I love this line:
    “Yet, in “Small’s” section of every newspaper, our little lives are interviewed daily. We are small advertisements, twinkling with the glory of grace … shining with the beauty of forgiveness … telling the wondrous story of love.”
    Very well spoken…poetic
    Thanks!

  24. This! “We are small advertisements, twinkling with the glory of grace … shining with the beauty of forgiveness … telling the wondrous story of love.” visiting from fmf. We are truly “small” advertisements for HIM. Lovely image and so much better than any paper out today.
