Country Auction

(so that nothing is lost)

by Cynthia Knisley

vintage-16726_1920

Five, six, or seven, who will go eight?

A bargain a minute – don’t hesitate!

Lot 142, who wants this stand?

With a pot and a plan it would really look grand.

A box lot up next, just look at this stuff!

Drill bits and pliers, a tin of old snuff.

Two nice saws sold as a pair

to the man in the corner on the needlepoint chair.

A really nice cabinet – see the French legs?

Sold! Fifty dollars!

Look! Two weathered kegs.

One has some damage, “as is” it is sold –

the pair for a hundred –  these beauties are old!

This must be the ugliest lamp I have seen.

It’s wild…unique…just for you, Mrs. Green.

A pair of white horses – a concrete garden set . . .

give $10, $20, $30, it’s the best value yet.

A rush-seat rocker – will someone give two?

It has a few holes, all you need is some glue.

 

When they were filled, He said to His disciples,

‘Gather up the leftover fragments,

so that nothing will be lost.’    John 6:12

“Come Down to Earth and be Still” by Kathryn Ross Tags: Come Down to Earth and be Still Kathryn Ross Kathryn Ross

be-still-logo

The pendulum swings from side to side

a slice to the left and there to abide

delayed in the air

‘till gravity beckons,

“come down to earth and be still.”

 

The pendulum swings from left to right

holding position, hovering tight,

seeming to rest

‘till gravity beckons,

“come down to earth and be still.”

 

The pendulum swings from Truth to Error

from Error to Truth and back again,

slicing and slashing

‘till gravity beckons,

“come down to earth and be still.”

 

It’s good to come down to earth.

That was the example of Jesus Christ. In the centerpiece of time, in the flux of worldly confusion, He came down to earth. He brought Truth down to earth—the focal point of all history—God’s Word and Will made manifest: Peace on Earth.

The turbulence of the human spirit could now be still. At Rest. He swung not a pendulum in an endless sway back and forth, but a sword, with a singular slice cutting straight. Separating out Truth from Error. Once and for all. It is finished. Truth reigns at the center.

All history, before and after Him, hovers at extreme pendulum angles—but never for long. Gravity’s force pulls it ever closer to the center place of Rest where Truth resides.

Man’s agitated existence is a pendulum passing through that center place, grabbing fistfuls of Truth and clear thinking along the way, continuing through history on an upward swing.

Seeds of Truth exchange for Error—exchange for Truth—in the swaying, sown and grown from generation to generation. Here, and back again through time.

And, to the present, forming the mind, heart, and spirit of the human condition. The worldview of individuals, cultures, and nations.

Our finite minds cling to short seasons of Rest afforded to us when we pass through the center in Christ. But, we are not stilled to stop there. We swish, speeding in tumult, back and forth.

Life at the center, down to earth—at Rest—is a life of Peace even when we only possess a handful of Truth seeds. There, we come to a stop, stilled enough to evaluate what we’re sowing in our swinging. Have we picked up any Error in our mad dashing to and fro?

Separated out and sown well in the place of Peace, a handful of Truth multiplies with the riches of heaven.

Spiritual Truth planted in the soil of an earthly realm produces good fruit because Christ brought Truth down to earth and showed man how to live with it there in every sphere of life.

The day will come, perhaps very soon, when we’ll take the fullness of our earthly harvest to the infinite realm of the Spirit. There we re-invest ourselves in the further purposes of God, walking in a rewarded life with Him.

Until that day, we must live down to earth here, where God placed us in time and space, cultivating Truth and bringing forth its unique fruits accordingly.

We have responsibilities to sensibly tend all aspects of our life in His Truth, affecting our family, church, work, as citizens in our communities at large—and in our nation.

But the finite realm of earthly soil is not without miry bogs, evil pits, and erroneous chasms of ignorance. Wolves in sheep’s clothing swing through the ages wearing the name of Christ, compassion, goodness, and beauty.

Beware and do not be deceived. Underneath they are razor-sharp as the slash of the pendulum’s edge seeking to supplant Truth for Error.

The wise one knows to hold tight his fistfuls of Truth scooped from the center as he passes to and fro through the seasons of his life.

He removes himself from the path of the swinging pendulum, to the “down to earth” place of ordinary stillness where Truth may well be rooted, tended, harvested, and feasted on, season after season.

The substance of that Truth, when planted in good “down to earth” soil, remains the same—as Christ is the same—yesterday, today, and forever.

When the world around us is uprooted and the ground beneath us begins to shake, the pendulum of our mind and heart—our understanding and emotions—swings in a sway of changeable thinking. But, Truth is unchanging.

In like manner, the foundation of a building remains the same. It must not be changed. It is laid to give stability to what is built upon it—the subsequent floors, rooms, and architectural elements, according to its purpose.

A house rises or falls on the integrity of the foundation, and the quality of its workmanship and materials.

Is our Truth planted in good “down to earth” soil?

Is the foundation that Jesus Christ fist laid in our hearts being built upon according to how it was first designed?  In Truth?  With gold, silver, and precious stones?

Or have the pendulum swings of history, and the Truth and Error slashing to and fro, stunted the maturity of the garden grown and the house built?

fullscreen-capture-10192016-75932-pm

For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.  According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.  

 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.  

 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.  If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.                           1 Corinthians 3:9-15

We should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ.

Ephesians 4: 14-15

From the moment we are stilled enough to allow Christ His foundation in our life, the pendulum swings back and forth as we work through sanctification in an earthly realm that is constantly shaking. Powers seek to supplant His Truth and Rest from our lives.

Even on a larger scale, we see this to be true historically. From the earliest roots of our Judaeo-Christian nation’s history, powers have sought to supplant the Truths our Founding Fathers sowed into our national character and purpose.

Every election has had contenders entering the race with diametrically-opposed ideologies to our culture and Constitution.

As history marches on, like a pendulum swinging back and forth, every four years we have the potential to destroy ourselves and the noble aspirations of our foundations, through the election process.

Each election builds on that which came before it, leaving its mark for good or ill, Truth or Error, in what is erected. Or dismantled.

We are called to steward our earthly days in His Truth and to choose wisely how we shall live and build on the foundations laid in the moment in history allotted to us.

How will we swing this time? As builders with gold, silver, and precious stones laid on the Judaeo-Christian foundations set by our Founders 240 years ago?

Or will the pendulum swing cluttering the path with wood, hay and straw?

Wolves in sheep’s clothing have weaseled their way into the popular culture, our schools, and yes—our churches, to some extent—with pendulum swings of re-direction and re-defining of terms for over 40 years.

Corruption, seeded from Error, cuts away at the roots of our Constitution like a sickle swaying and slashing . . . back and forth . . . back and forth.

When we find ourselves overwhelmed with the headlines of the day, shaken and swaying, we must jump off the pendulum swing of the sickle.

Be still.

Come down to earth and take an inventory of the Truth seeds gathered swinging through these historic days we’re living in. Stillness gives us the needed pause to discern them, sheltered from Error’s distraction and re-definition weapons seeking whom they may devour.

In that stilled place, we are not alone. The Lord is our Shepherd there, leading us in green pastures, beside still waters, restoring our souls.

He doesn’t swing sickles in pendulum strokes. His rod and staff gently correct and confidently guide us, pointing straight as a compass to where our focus should be.

On Him. And the full counsel of His Word. Seeking His Will to be done and Kingdom to come on earth as it is in Heaven.

If you’re swinging on a pendulum or two, be it family crisis, work or health matters, or the quandary and confusion of this critical upcoming election, ask the Lord to help you “come down to earth and be still.”

You’ll see all things more clearly, and will know how to walk in God’s Truth as you steward it in the many spheres of your life here on earth.

The pendulum swings spent and slow

Energy ebbed as time doth flow,

Coming to center,

Finally focused,

Still . . .

 And Gravity speaks with a sigh,

“Be still and know that

I Am God.”

NOTE: Listen to the PODCAST version of this article with added resources for making choices this election year from a biblical worldview.

Ponder the questions posed in this reflective article, and the metaphors, and prayerfully journal your thoughts. May the Shepherd lead you in stillness and peace, at rest, centered in Him.

MORAINE LAKE IN BANFF NATIONAL PARK, CANADA
Category: Special Blogs
Tags: NATURE
  1. Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, Canada

    At over 6,000 feet above sea level, and located in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, Moraine Lake is one of the highlights of Alberta, Canada’s immense Banff National Park. Fed by Fay Glacier, this high alpine lake takes on what seems an impossibly brilliant turquoise hue in daytime. The explanation? Rock flour. It’s what results when glaciers crush their way across rocks as they migrate. A suspension of these rock particles in meltwater runoff – called glacial milk – then flows into the lake and creates an incredibly vivid tint . Still, we like to think Moraine Lake is at least as beautiful under the starry nighttime sky.

Unborn Christians

Unborn Christians

 
I bet you read the above title and thought Doesn't she mean REborn Christians?

Nope. I mean unborn. These are Christians who don't know they're Christians...yet. At least until we talk to them.
Unborn Christians are those who don't know about Jesus, or kinda-sorta know about God, but don't know enough to claim His promises. That's where we come in.

Scary, isn't it?

You never know when you'll influence someone to come to God. It's not always about brandishing a Bible and praising God at the top of your lungs; sometimes it's that way people see you acting (and reacting) with your co-workers. Or family and friends. Or your children.

One woman is a homemaker. Her and her husband raised three kids in God's word, and when they were grown, they brought fifty-thousand unborn Christians to God through ministry. Is her job any less important because she only influenced three little people? What about her neighbors and friends? They saw God through her eyes and actions and came to Christ, and are now influencing their own kids in God's ways. One little homemaker influenced the future of thousands of unborn Christians.

Another woman works in an office. She not only influences her co-workers, but also the clients she works with. Not all of them come to God, but the few that do wind up influencing their co-workers, bosses, and clients, who them go home and talk to their husbands and wives and then their children...

You get the idea. There are a lot of unborn Christians out there- and all we need to do is talk to them.
Or pray for them. Let them see God through us.

Even though we screw up. Especially when we screw up. That's probably the hardest and scariest part of all because those who are usually the closest to breaking and finding God are our hardest critics, keeping an eye on every thing we do. You know those cynics are watching when a Christian messes up- just wondering what we'll do and how we'll act.

The funny thing is, if we act out of God's will, this is usually the opposite reaction that the cynics expect. And that's usually the best time to talk to these unborn Christians!

Your co-worker asks,"Why didn't you try to get out of it? You could have (list excuse here)...." Your answer will tell her everything about your Christian walk. And that it's not a walk of the perfected- quite the opposite in fact. People might not break down that day and give their lives to God, but you brought them one step closer because you acted in God's best interest.

Living life God's way isn't easy- not by a long shot. But unborn Christians need to not only see us triumph over the struggles of life, but triumph over struggles we're still going through. That is what gets their attention the most. I can't tell you how many times unborn Christians have gone up to my husband and asked, "How did you get through it?" His answers brought many into God's fold.

We both have our moments where God's light doesn't shine as much as it should. We both struggle with staying in God's sight. Honestly, he's quicker on the draw when it comes to admitting mistakes and learning from them, but he's teaching me as I trip along my merry way. Or should I say His merry way?

I'll be meeting a lot of unborn Christians by the time God calls me home (I hope), and I pray I'll be a good example of what God wants me to be. And if I'm not, I hope the cynics see a repentant heart, a submissive spirit, and a humble attitude. I want them to see God working through me.

Who knows how many people we influence each day? But wouldn't it be great to see those unborn Christians of today in heaven when we are called home?

“Fall Wanders Away” by Rejetta Morse Tags: Fall Wanders Away Fall Rejetta Morse Rejetta Morse

norway-714216_1920

As fall now wanders far away,

the waterfalls tumble and roar,

 pushing through the mountain top

beneath the skies each day.

Around the falls, the bare trees stand,

and spread their leaves over the land.

As fall now wanders far away,

the waterfalls cover the rocks,

just like the grace of God abides –

He covers me each day;

and on the cross he cried for all –

this was the greatest waterfall.

As fall now wanders far away,

the river fails to rise;

the blue streams weaken as they flow

while dry leaves now decay.

They fly – and float – into the tides

and ride the gentle waves and glides.

As fall now wanders far away,

the warm sun rays spread wide

to warm the bare trees and the falls

with love in the midday.

All earth’s toils weaken from the stress,

 waiting for harvest time to rest.

As fall now wanders far away,

the giant water fall trickles.

Around the falls the bare trees hope

for spring’s return someday,

as frost now covers the lonesome trees;

winter lingers in the breeze.

“Vacations: Mom vs. Family” by Beth Brubaker Tags: Christian Life Family Parenting Ruby For Women Ruby for Women magazine women bloggers

campground-1591949_1920

Vacations.

The family loves to take them, but the moms? Not so much. Don’t get me wrong- moms do love to go on vacation as much as the rest of the clan, but her idea of a vacation is much different than the husband and kiddos.

Let’s use a typical, low-budget family vacation.

Camping

Family:

Yay! We get to put up a tent and sleep outdoors!

Mom:

I have to pack everything we own, put it in the dirt, and sleep with the bugs.

 

Family:

Yay! We get to gather firewood and set up camp!

Mom:

Torn between using the three twigs gathered or chopping up the giant logs her husband found to start the campfire. Mom has to help her husband finish putting up the tent because the kids spent three minutes ‘setting it up’- aka unrolling the canvas and playing ‘swordfight’ with the tent poles.

 

Family:

Yay! We get to go hiking, fishing, and cook over a fire!

Mom:

Thanks God she packed the medical kit, and extra Band-Aids. She gets to gut, clean and cook the fish, trying not to burn it to a crisp over the giant bonfire her husband created instead of the glowing coals she needed. Mom hides the lighter fluid.

 

Family:

Yay! We get to rough it!

Mom:

Brings extra bathroom tissue for the outhouse and packs a shovel in case there isn’t one. Brings cards and a few board games, knowing the kids will freak out because there are no plugs for their phones and their batteries will die within an hour of setting up camp.

Explains for the fifteenth time that there is no electricity when roughing it, and has to keep the car locked so the kids don’t sequester themselves there for the rest of the week.

 

Family:

Fishes, hikes, roasts marshmallows, and sings songs around the campfire.

Mom:

Does all that too and cooks, cleans out and straightens the tent each morning, rekindles the fire, plays nurse to boo-boos and small injuries (thanking God again for remembering to pack the med kit), washes dishes, slathers everyone else with sun lotion or calamine (thus forgetting to do this to herself) and on occasion, heads out in the car to find a laundromat due to clothing caked with mud, fish entrails, or ‘camp odor.’ Never did get to read that book she brought.

 

Family:

This was the best/worst trip ever! Husband and the kids rehash all of their camping adventures on the trip home, and then promptly fall asleep in their seats halfway home.

Mom:

Sees the baggy-eyed, bug-bitten, soot-smeared, sunburnt face that used to be hers in the rear-view side mirror, and restrains herself from scratching her poison oak-covered arms.

Wonders if she’ll have the strength to unpack and wash everything they brought, refill the now-empty med kit, disinfect the cooking gear, and put everything away before she dies of exhaustion.

 

Family:

Everyone wakes up as she pulls up in the driveway. “Hey Mom/Hon, what’s for dinner?”

Mom:

Parks in the driveway. Bangs head on steering wheel several times, hoping to knock herself out.

So now you ask…What’s a mom’s ideal vacation?

Well, we moms are simple folk.

For most of us, the ideal vacation means air-conditioned rooms, take-out or restaurant reservations, and a quiet place to sit for a little while and read our book!

Yes, we do love spending time with our families.

Yes, we do love to do things with our husbands and kids. All we moms ask for is a little time alone to recoup our energy and relax with no demands set upon us. Then we’re happy to exhaust ourselves doing whatever the family wants!

“Waiting for Grace” by Nina Newton Tags: Christian Life Christian women Daily Devotional Faith God's Grace healing broken relationships mommy bloggers

broken-is-beautiful

Some days I amaze myself. And then other days, not so much. I’m guessing we all have days like that. But there is just something about “grace” that seems to make me nervous. It’s almost as if I just can’t believe it’s true. Oh, I know in my head what God’s Word tells me about being “saved by grace,” and that it’s not about my “works.” But just getting through a day is frequently challenging when I feel so overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done. It’s like all that “work” is waiting for me to pay attention and get it done. Do you ever feel that way?

Maybe it’s because I was brought up by a mama who never let me forget that “first we WORK and then we play!” Not only do we work before we play, but we do it right! “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing RIGHT!” I can still hear her voice reminding me to “do it when you are told, and the way you are told!” The truth is those are really good rules to live by, especially when you consider how much time and energy can be wasted if you don’t just do a job right the first time.

So when I read the Bible and I realize that there is NOTHING I can do (or not do) that will make God love me any more or any less . . . . that is truly a gift to me, especially on those days when I’m wondering how in the world I am going to get it ALL done. That’s when I start playing this little game in my brain – “If I don’t do that, what will happen?” Really, what’s the worst thing that could happen if I just don’t do it?

Even though I know (in my head) that God will still love me even if I don’t get everything accomplished in a day that I feel needs to be done, I still wonder about everyone else around me. Will they still love me if I don’t do blah, blah, blah, blah? And that’s when I find myself waiting for grace. Oh, not grace from God, I’ve already claimed that gift. But I think I’m afraid that I’ll mess up and there will be no grace from the people I love.

That is a scary thought, and it is even scarier when you discover that you were right – it is not uncommon for other people, including other Christian people, to withhold grace from one another. Perhaps you have never experienced that, but I can assure you that it happens and it is very hurtful.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:8-9

Since I am not in charge of the universe, I can’t change people’s hearts and I can’t “fix” everything that has gone wrong in the world, so I find myself waiting for grace. And it is time to stop waiting. Because I already have grace from the only One who really matters in the “big picture” of life.

gods-grace-is-always-enough

Unfortunately, this happens to all of us at one time or another in life. In churches, in families, in friendships, in every imaginable circumstance, we either wait for grace or perhaps we refuse to extend grace. Could be that’s why there are so many broken relationships all around us.

Today I choose to remember that I don’t have to wait for grace, it is mine through the gift of salvation through trust in my Lord Jesus Christ. His grace is sufficient, even in the absence of grace from others. How about you? Are you waiting for grace? Stop it! You have all you need to walk with Him in freedom and victory over doubts, fear, failure, and rejection.

And if you are withholding grace from someone who has not been “perfect,” you might want to consider giving grace a chance – it just might mend that broken relationship!
