Faith Always

Do you ever feel torn about what be to do? You pray for answers and guidance but you don’t see, feel or hear an answer. That doesn’t mean nothing’s happening. I believe God is there fighting your battles. It may seem hope, or you’re feeling angry and in distress. I know right now I’ve been feeling all that. I had trouble understanding how anything good could come out of this. Yet God has been using this trial for my benefit. I’ve met some awesome new people, and pre existing relationships with people have been deepened. I’ve also been growing in my faith, renewing myself confidence and the passion I have for life.

Here’s some songs and verses I pray that will help you as well.

I first found this song on the radio before it was even out on cd. When my dad was in the hospital and having complications during a bypass sugery. Today, my mom sent it to me just when I needed it for my own battle. Music helps, especially praise and worship!!!

📖Bible Verses:

✞Philippians 4:13 (TLV)
I can do all things through Messiah who strengthens me.

✞ 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

✞Joshua 1:9 (NKJV)
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

✞ John 10:10 (NRSV)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

✞James 1:1-7 (NLT) Faith and Endurance

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. 6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.

✞ Matthew 6:25-34 (NLT)“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

I don’t want to live with out trying.

I don’t want to go through the motions, I don’t want to live with out trying. How often do we make promises to ourselves that we don’t keep. How often do we give up before we try. I don’t want to do that any more. I want to live for God 100% not because I have to, but because of all he has done for me. And for what he does daily for us the human race.

Every day is a new miracle. A new piece of art, a new day, a new chance. No matter how it is. Rain or Shine there is good in it. I, we, are blessed. And I want to share the blessing with you and others I may meet. God is good. He is a loving Father. He sent his son to earth for you. Jesus spilled his blood for you. I am so thankful to be alive even with all the bad I have gone through. I want to share God’s love, so that every one has a chance to accept Christ, and go to heaven.

I don’t want any one to miss out on this amazing feeling. I want every one to be blessed. Yes every one. God loves us all! No matter what you did or who you are. He wants you to know that! Be thankful and welcome him in your heart. He is waiting with open arms.

Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.

Daniel 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

Good Stuff!! Amen!! I claim blessings over you, my family, your family, friends, and me. Thank you Father for sending us your son, who died so that we may be forgiven, blessed, and able to go to heaven.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

AMEN

Genesis 1-49

I have been reading Genesis 1-49 the past months.. Very good, some parts can be a bit hard to get though.

It starts out talking about how the EVERYTHING was created, how we all became full of sin, because Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. And that they were kicked out of Eden because of apple, where there is now tall angels guarding the entrance to Eden holding swords. WOW… So much happened in such a short time.

Then it goes on to talk about their first sons’ children Cain and Able. About the first murder of how Cain killed Able over jealousy, and how Abel’s blood called out to God. Could you imagine hearing someone’s blood crying? Cain then fled in fear from God banished never to come back, and eventually killed himself.

Then it continues about how the people on earth had become corrupt and evil, so God instructed Noah, the only believer there, to build an Arc and take his three sons, their wives, his wife, and two of every animal, male and female. Therefore they could repopulate the earth. Then for forty days and forty nights it rained. When it was done raining, Noah and the others waited for all the water to dry up, and sent out a dove, it came back with nothing. Then he sent it out again and it came back with a branch, and the third time he sent the dove out it did not return, so Noah knew they could all finally leave the boat. And as a promise that God will never flood the earth again he put a Rainbow in the sky as proof to his commitment. Wouldn’t you like a commitment like that? Well it is for you too!! He promised no more floods like that ever again.

After a great deal of time, the bible talked about the generations up till Abra who God renamed Abraham, meaning Man of many Children or Nations, and gave his barren wife a child in her late age of one hundred, and they named him Isaac.

And lastly, then God asked Abraham to Sacrifice Isaac. Abraham, the good man he was, did as God told him to and escorted Isaac up the mountain, prepared the alter, and was about to sacrifice his son when God stopped him and gave him a ram to sacrifice instead. God was very pleased and blessed Abraham and his family..

Wow a lot happened in just those forty nine chapters in the beginning of the Bible. What do you make of all this?

1. We are all sinners and have fallen short of the glory of God.

2. We are all tested and go through trials.

3. We are all blessed of God!

4. We are all forgiven of our sins!

5. God keeps his commitments to us. No matter how absurd or impossible they seem

6. No matter where we go or what we do God is always here watching us.

7. And No matter what, we are Loved!

Bible Verses:

Colossians 4:6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Psalm 103:8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love

Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is rewarded of them that diligently seek him.”

Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not see.

Jeremiah 31:3 “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.
With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.

God Bless You All!!
