We Have This

Don’t do it alone.

Do it with Jesus.

Have you ever counted the times in your life you thought “I got this.” ?

Too many, right?

Did you really have it, or did you just think you did?

That is wishful thinking on your part.

We are nothing without Him.

Swallow your pride and let Him show you the way.

We could never in a million years know what’s best for us.

Only God knows!

He gives us life each morning.

It was nothing we did to stay alive.

He is in control not us.

Live your life surrendering to His glory and mercy.

With Jesus guiding our steps each day, we will and can make it.

“We have this” see the difference?

We have nothing without His help.

It is not “I”, it is “We”.

The Road To Nowhere

The road to nowhere, until you make the connection.

Are you lost on a road to nowhere?

Some people spend their entire life going in circles.

They have no idea where they will end up.

From the moment you were conceived,

God had a plan for you.

Make the connection you need to follow the road He has prepared for you.

He will lead you in the right direction.

Stay on the straight and narrow road and He will lead you home.

My Journey With Autism – New Video!

Recently, a video was made to show my journey with autism.

I love this video because it shows many of the special people who have helped me get this far. I love them all so much. I hope they all have seen it and will share it so it can give others hope. My hope is that this video will make other people realize we are in here waiting to be found. Don’t give up on us, we can achieve great things in life. Have faith in us to succeed and we will.

Our Shepherd

Jesus is our shepherd. He watches over and protects his sheep at all times. His rod and staff help guide us through life. The hook pulls us back from danger. It rescues us when we fall out of our beloveds arms reach. We find comfort in his constant protection. He provides us with guidance we can count on. Cry out to him in times you feel you can’t go on. When you want to give up, pray to him. He will never leave you. His love for us is eternal.

I hope everyone has a Happy Easter!

Love, Gavin

In His Steps

1 Peter 2:21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.

 

Are you walking in his steps?

The saying What Would Jesus Do leads us to think.

Is how we are living our life what we are doing and saying pleasing to him?

Is your character following Jesus or the devil?

Strive to live a Godly life.

Jesus is the best example, so follow in his footsteps.

He will carry us through the pain and low spots of our life.

The world needs more Christ-like Christians.

God can and will transform us.

All we have to do is ask.

Become an advocate for Christ with me.

 

 

Happy New Year 2016!

With one year ended and another one to start,

Stay close to those most dear to your heart.

As we enter a new year,

Be grateful and spread cheer!

Live your life with joy,

Giving happiness to every girl and boy.

God blesses us with each new day,

Share his love in what you do and say.

The New Year is here,

I’m sending love and peace to those I hold dear.

Keep moving forward and don’t look back.

Make a difference for those that lack.

Stay positive in thinking in all you do,

And you will have a great year too!

 

The Sower And The Seed

(From Matthew 13: 1-9, 18-23):

“That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.”

“Listen then to what the parable of the sower means:  When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy.  But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.  The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful.  But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”

People need to pay attention to their soil. Is it fertile or shallow? Love for God creates a beautiful crop to share with others. Shallow ground creates nothing worthwhile. The sower needs to be careful to protect his crop from weeds. Too often, they can take over if we let them. The moral of the story is to plant many seeds because not all will take to good soil. Never give up or be discouraged because God will always be there for us. He sees the seeds we sow with our heart. He knows our every thought, so if the soil is rotten, nothing healthy will grow there. I am a tiny, ordinary seed that will grow to extraordinary heights thanks to the power, grace, mercy and love of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The work is plentiful and not easy, so hold on tight to the plow because He will keep your row straight and your harvest bigger than you could ever imagine possible. Don’t let the weeds in life get in your way or take over. They need to be pulled out and discarded. The growing season is short, so let’s make the best of it! Plant all you can. To hell with those weeds! They need to be stepped on for thinking they can overpower anything God has planned for your beautiful garden.
