How Big Is God In Your Life?

How Big Is God In Your Life?

Author: Pat Aman

When I read Joni Erickerson Tadda’s book, there was a story she told about when she went to Africa on a mission trip. When she arrived she met an African Woman who said, “Joni welcome to Africa, where our God is so much bigger, because we need Him more.”

WOW, It made me stop and think. God is just as big in our life, as we let Him be. God also wants to do big things in our lives. We just sometimes do not let Him. God wants us to take a step of faith, so He can bless us. ..

He wants to be BIG, in our lives.

Deuteronomy 28:1-14, is one of the chapters of the Bible that tells us just how God wants to bless us. 

He says, ” Now it shall come to pass “IF” you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God.”

Then the word goes on to tell us that we will be blessed in the city, the fruit of our body will be blessed, our baskets will be full, our enemies will be defeated, God will cause our storehouse to be blessed and everything we set our hands too, and everyone will call us blessed, and the Lord will open His good treasures to give to you, and it will rain on your land, and the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, (PRAISE GOD), and you will be above and not beneath, if you will just heed the commandments of the Lord your God, and observe all these things.

I paraphrased the scripture, but you need to get your Bible down and read the entire 28th chapter, because it also tells you what will happen if you do not keep His commandments.

How much do you need God today? How big do you want God to be in your life? Do you want Him enough, to keep His commandments and do His will and work? Are you ready to be blessed?

Just let God take you in His arms and give you all He wants to. Do not stop God from blessing you today.

Again, how big is God, in your life? Do you need Him more? I know I do.

Blessings, Love and Prayers,

Whose Your Daddy?

Whose Your Daddy?

Author; Pat Aman


‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭15:48-49‬ ‭“As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.”‬‬

Colossians 1:12

(We are) giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

As I am thinking about Reminiscing about life tonight, I want to share a story and a little history. I do not remember who wrote this story, but it is worth sharing with you.

A Seminary professor was vacationing with his wife in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. One morning, they went for breakfast at a little restaurant, hoping to enjoy a quiet, family meal. While they were waiting for their food, they noticed a distinguished looking, white haired man moving from table to table, visiting with the guests. The professor leaned over and whispered to his wife, “I hope he doesn’t come over here.”

But sure enough, the man did come over to their table.

“Where are you folks from?” he asked in a friendly voice.

“Oklahoma,” they answered.

“Great to have you here in Tennessee,” the stranger said.

“What do you do for a living?”

“I teach at a seminary,” the professor replied.

“Oh, so you teach preachers how to preach, do you? Well, I’ve got a really good story for you.”

And with that, the gentleman pulled up a chair and sat down at the table with the couple. The professor groaned and thought to himself, “Great, just what I need–another preacher story!”

The man started, “See that mountain over there?” (He pointed out a restaurant window). “Not far from the base of that mountain, there was a boy born to an unwed mother. He had a hard time growing up, because every place he went, he was always asked, “Hey boy, who’s your daddy?” Whether he was at school, in the grocery store or drug store, people would ask the same question, “Who’s your daddy?” He would hide at recess and lunchtime from other students. He would avoid going into stores because that question hurt him so much.

When he was about 12 years old, a new preacher came to his church. He would always go in late and slip out early to avoid hearing the question, “Who’s your daddy?” But one day, the new preacher said the benediction so fast, the boy got caught and had to walk out with the crowd. Just about the time he got to the back door, the new preacher, not knowing anything about the young man, put his hand on his shoulder and asked him, “Son, who’s your daddy?”

The whole church got deathly quiet. He could feel every eye in the church looking at him. Now everyone would finally know the answer to the, question, “Who’s your daddy?”

The new preacher, though, sensed the situation around him and using discernment that only the Holy Spirit could give, said the following to the scared little boy. “Wait a minute! I know who you are. I see the family resemblance now. “You are a child of God.” With that he patted the boy on his shoulder and said, “Boy, you’ve got a great inheritance. Go and claim it.”

The boy smiled for the first time in a long time and walked out the door a changed person. He was never the same again. Whenever anybody asked him, “Who’s your Daddy?” he’d just tell them, “I’m a child of God.”

The distinguished gentleman got up from the table and said, “Isn’t that a great story?” The professor responded that it really was. As the man turned to leave, he said, “You know, if that new preacher hadn’t told me that I was one of God’s children, I probably would never have amounted to anything!” And he walked away.

The seminary professor and his wife were stunned. He called the waitress over and asked, “Do you know that man who just left that was sitting at our table?” The waitress grinned and said, “Of course. Everybody here knows him. That’s Ben Hooper. He’s the former governor of Tennessee!”

So, I asked you today, “Whose Your Daddy?”

Reach The Top – Run A Good Race

Reach The Top – Run A Good Race
Author: Pat Aman..

“For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.”
‭‭II Timothy 4:6-8

There once was a bunch of tiny frogs,…
who arranged a running competition.

The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.

A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants…

The race began…

Honestly: No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.

You heard statements such as:

“Oh, WAY too difficult!!”

“They will NEVER make it to the top.”

“Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!”

The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one…

Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher..

The crowd continued to yell,

“It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!”

More tiny frogs got tired and gave up…

But ONE continued higher and higher and higher… This one wouldn’t give up!

At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the
one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!

Then all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?

A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed
and reach the goal?

It turned out, that the winner was DEAF.

The wisdom of this story is:

Never listen to other people’s tendencies to be negative or pessimistic…

Because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you —
the ones you have in your heart!

Always think of the power words have.

Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions!

Therefore: ALWAYS be… POSITIVE!

And above all: Be DEAF when people tell YOU that you cannot fulfill your dreams!

Always think: God and I can do this!

Most people walk in and out of your life……but FRIENDS leave footprints
in your heart.
