✝️Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.”
It’s not always easy to walk by faith. Especially when things are rough and you have so many questions and things to stress about. Faith means giving up your control and giving it away to someone else. Like God, Jesus. What is faith?
✝️Matthew 17:20 “…Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
I suggest you practice giving your concerns to the Lord, because He truly cares for you.
✝️1 Peter 5:7 says “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for us”. Just throw it on him, and let him carry your burdens. Jesus said we could cast all of our cares on him because he cares for us! There is nothing we are going through that we cannot cast on the Lord.
✝️Romans 3:23-26 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus
You are loved! Even when you don’t feel like it.
✝️Psalm 36:7–9 7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. 8 They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. 9 For with you is the fountain of life; your light do we see light.
✝️Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Remember it is the king of lies and deceit that’s trying to keep you down.
Don’t let him win. Take charge. Because God is our source!
✝️ John 10:1-11 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
There’s a heavy weight over our country and it is pretty clear we are in the mist of a big storm. No matter what side you are on, or not on. It is undeniable. The wind is howling, the thunder is rolling and the lightning is crackling! Not just physically, we can all see the challenges and chaos. Not just politics but also physically, mentally and emotionally. We are indeed involved a major spiritual battle. There is no questionable doubt of that. Prayer warriors we are being called to the battlefield to pray like never before for not just our country but also the world. To pray for all. Saved and not saved.
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Amen! Why rejoice? Because God is love , He is in Control, and with Him there is victory! “For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” ~Deuteronomy 20:4 Again doing this is not an easy task. Especially when everything isn’t normal. But what is normal, and why should things be normal? True growth comes from stepping out of your comfort zone and thinking outside of the box. At least from my experience I see this statement as truth. Heck my life has never been normal tho…
Each battle is unique just like the one that we are currently facing. We have to put on our spiritual armor and face our spiritual Goliath!
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” ~2 Chronicles 7:14
Thanksgiving and Prayer -Ephesians 1:15-23: “For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”
I was raised that our words and our actions matter… That we have to be productive, and responsible. We have to be people of our word, loyal, honest, and examples of Jesus’s love. Why? Because it is right – Because it makes a difference and Because it is what would Horner God. He sent Jesus His so for us to be blessed out of love.
We are to treat others how we wish to be treated. You say you may not care… But I thinks you do… No-one likes being neglected and treated poorly. “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” ~Ephesians 6:18
I encourage you to seek reasons to smile. Even if the reasons are small. Remind those you care about how much they matter to you as well. Try not to stay angry or hurt others on purpose. Treat others how you wish to be treated. Every day you wake up is gift. It may not be easy but we have to move forward.
We do that one step at a time. We may not be happy and hardships are sure to come. But you can move forward if you choose to. It is harder to let life pass you by and have regrets Don’t live a life of regret and anger. We have to encourage eachother and set good examples of Christ Jesus’s love.
Be sure sisters and brothers in Christ we are being watched and judged. We are humans but we are called to spread the gospel and we can only do so by developing a personal reallationship, truly knowing Jesus as our friend and reading God’s word the Bible.
Thank you for stopping by and giving me a moment if your time to share my thoughts and feelings with you. I am truly grateful for you!
