Glory Seed Guidelines

Notice – The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

These daily devotionals are brought to you by Gary Piper, a writer with our Sister Site, Natural Spirit Ministries. TheologyWeb encourages you to visit and support their site.... they have many informative articles which can be discussed right here. If you enjoy Gary Piper's devotionals, please send him an encouraging note or post. We are very appreciative of our partnership with Natural Spirit Ministries and look forward to many more co-ventures.

    A Planting of Faith Seeds for the Glory of the LORD
    Life is like a Carnival Ride???

    If someone were to ask you to describe life as a Carnival Ride which ride would you choose? A Ferris Wheel? A Roller Coaster? A Tunnel of Love? A House of Mirrors? A Tilt-A-Wheel? A Bungee Drop? A Fun House? A Spook House? A Train Ride? Or is there another one I’ve not mentioned?

    Personally I would describe life as a Roller Coaster but not just one that goes up and down. Life is one of ups and downs, sharp turns, even twisting like a corkscrew at times, slowing down then speeding downhill at breakneck speeds. There are those who enjoy Roller Coasters however I am not one of them while I do not hate them I’d rather life be like on a slow train ride with an occasional valley and hill along the way.

    However, basically in spite of my own personal I’d-rather-not-be-on-a-roller-coaster-life I am enjoying life and having fun after all carnivals are all about having fun aren’t they? I am having fun not because of the ups and downs, sharp turns, and twisting like a corkscrew at breakneck speeds but because of my ever present companion who continually whispers. “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10, HCSB)

    To John the Baptist and others Isaiah 40:3-4 was an introduction to the coming of Jesus but for me it not only affirms God’s continual presence in my life through my relationship with Jesus and the Holy Spirit but also promises me what Jesus does with my topsy-turvy life. “A voice of one crying out: Prepare the way of the LORD in the wilderness; make a straight highway for our God in the desert. Every valley will be lifted up, and every mountain and hill will be leveled; the uneven ground will become smooth and the rough places, a plain.” (Isaiah 40:3–4, HCSB)

    Believe it! Experience it!
    Grace and PEACE!
