The word consumer has really been on my heart lately; Here’s the definition of consume:

Verb (used with object)
1. To destroy or expend by use; use up.
2. To eat or drink up; devour.
3. To destroy, as by decomposition or burning: Fire consumed the forest.
4. To spend (money, time, etc.) wastefully.

Some words I like better are: give, create or share.

Another year has come and gone and like all the years before, God has proven to be trustworthy. Somehow He showed Himself in completely unique situations. He was there in the good times and in the bad and was always willing to bear the burden if we would let Him. He provided in miraculous ways and as recently as today surprised us with more than we could ask for.

Thank you for the encouragement, support and friendship you have so graciously sent our way this year. I am continually amazed that you would take the time read this. If there is anything I can ever help with please don’t hesitate to ask.

Your friend,

Jim

One way of approaching life is to assume that no one else is watching out for your best interest. Unless you take what you need you will do without. Another way of looking at things is that you have a God that loves and cares for you and promises to provide for all of your needs. We’re faced with these two views throughout each and every day and the one we choose in a given moment directly affects all involved. Are we going to live in doubt looking out for ourselves or are we going to trust and be part of providing for others?
