*THE FRUITFUL LIFE SEEKS RAIN AS WELL AS SUNSHINE*

Tag Archives: spiritually


Although you know I’m homeless,
need shelter from the cold.
Don’t give me a coat and bag of food,
just warn me about my soul.

Now time is moving swiftly,
growing feeble weak and old.
The shelter I need is in His arms,
just warn me about my soul.

For if my soul’s in danger,
that’s something I must be told.
Don’t fill my plate with food and drink,
just warn me about my soul.

You see I’m in an emergency,
and sin has taken its toll.
It’s spiritual food I need the most,
just warn me about my soul.

Every Soul's Spiritual Food

The thing I need you to feed me,
bread of life to make me whole.
My body dies but my spirit lives on,
just warn me about my soul.

Don’t try to give me money,
don’t need silver cash or gold.
If you really cared about my fate,
you’ll warn me about my soul.

You’ll tell me I’m spiritually dead,
I’m lost under Satan’s control.
You’ll tell me how Jesus died for me,
you’ll warn me about my soul.

You’ll tell me about His love,
good news you should never withhold.
Gave up His life just to save mine,
you’ll warn me about my soul.

You see I’m in spiritual trouble,
my life Satan easily could have stole.
The one’s I’ll love when I finally get home,
those who warned me about my soul.

For at my day of judgment,
I’ll stand at eternity’s threshold.
I’ll enter in as one of the flock,
I was warned about my soul.

My life will be everlasting,
a splendor that can’t be told.
A life I’d never have,
if not warned about my soul.

And now I’m a king in heaven,
I’ve finally reached my goal.
The thing I credit to my success,
was the warning about my soul.

Noah's Ark

10 Life-Lessons from Noah’s Ark

The Biblical story of the great flood (see Genesis 6:1-9:17)

has been around for a long time. It has counterparts in many

other cultures. Each generation has learned much from the

story — and so can those of us in the coaching community!

Needless to say, “Always build on the highest ground possible”,

because character always counts!


Here
are ten more:


1. Always plan ahead.

There wasn’t any rain in the forecast when Noah started building

the ark.

2.Don’t listen to your critics.

Listen instead to your heart, and then do whatever has to be done.

The neighbors might have taunted when Noah was blocking

their driveway — but he had the last laugh as soon as the rain

began falling!


3.Stay physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally fit.

You never know but that when you’re 600 years old, someone

might come along out of the blue and ask you to do something

REALLY big!


4.Don’t seek to go it alone.

Always travel, at least, in pairs, because two heads are

better than one.

5.Speed is not always an advantage.

The cheetahs were on board, but so were the snails; and

they all arrived safely on dry ground at the very same time.

6.Handle Conflict with certainty.

If you can’t fight or flee from adversity — at least make

certain you have an idea that can float in the battlefield

of ideas!


7.Don’t miss the boat!

Never forget this underlying truth: that ultimately when

all is said and done, we’re all in the same boat!

8. Be flexible in your thinking.

Remember that amateurs built the ark while professionals

built the Titanic and the Challenger Space Shuttle.


9. Remember that Fear is nothing more than

“False Evidence Appearing Real”.

The woodpeckers on the INSIDE are often a bigger threat to

your overall well being than the storms raging on the outside.

10. Remain faithful and optimistic.

No matter how bleak things look, if God is traveling with you,

there’s always going to be a rainbow of peace on the other

side of the storm.
