Inspired Moments


A famous American businessman bought a large insurance policy on himself.  It was so large that the newspapers carried the story.  One of the businessman’s friends, an insurance agent, asked why he didn’t buy the policy from him since he was a personal friend.  The businessman    replied, “You never asked me.”

Could it be that some of our neighbors would attend church services or Sunday school if we just asked them?  Is it possible that someone will never accept Christ because we never asked them?

Be sure to take time to tell others the good news of Jesus and his salvation.

The church was bowed in grief this week to learn that one of our most valuable members, Someone Else, passed away.  This death creates a vacancy that will be difficult to fill.  Someone Else has been with us for many years.  During all these years, doing far more than a normal person’s share of the work.  Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results.

Whenever there was a job to do—a class to each, or a meeting to attend—one name was on everyone’s list:  “Let Someone Else do it.”

Someone Else was also among the largest givers of the church.  Whenever there was a financial need, everyone just assumed that Someone Else would make up the difference.

This beloved church member was a wonderful person, sometimes appearing super-human; but a person can only do so much.  Everybody expected too much of Someone Else.

Now Someone Else is gone.  Who will pitch in to do the things that Someone Else has done?  If you are asked to take a job in church, we hope you won’t reply, “Let Someone Else do it.”  Now we need you to pick up where Someone Else left off.

There were two frogs that had become bored with life in the River Torrens, so they decided to go on an adventure to a neighboring dairy farm.

There they found a bucket of lovely cream, and decided it would be a wonderful experience to wallow in it. They hopped in. The first licked his lips with delight, and the two swam around with momentary joy. But cream is much thicker than water, and soon the frogs tired. It was time to get out and return to the Torrens.

The first frog kicked and kicked and kicked, but the cream was thick, and he couldn't get out the bucket. Soon he gave up, licked his lips, and drowned in the bucket of cream.

The second frog was far more determined. He kicked and kicked and kicked and kicked some more. Eventually the cream turned to butter, and he jumped out of the bucket and returned to the River Torrens.

Attitude does make a difference to the outcomes of our lives. “Don't give up on life kick on”.

Sometimes the job you do
truly seems inspired
You go far away and over 
what simply is required;

Other times you have to push 
just to get it done
And hate your work and wish to do
something that’s more fun.

That’s when your truest character 
rises to the top like cream—
Will you decide to stick it out 
or race off toward a dream?

You might as well just stick around; 
it doesn’t matter where you go;
Some days are purely wonderful 
and others just “so, so.”

On Sunday morning I sit in church

Surrounded by God’s peace

In never-ending wonder

At a love that does not cease.


My soul expands with glory,

Bathed in unbounded love

That wraps me like a cloak

That descends from up above.


I’m fortified to start anew—

The Lord once more my crutch—

So no matter what may come this week,

It will not seem too much.


I’m renewed to start once more

The grueling task of living,

To face the trials of a new week

Being patient and forgiving.
