I would like for you to listen to these two women who exemplify strength through their stories. Stop and embrace the moment because you don’t know how your life could change in an instant!!
If you can think back for a second when you were growing up and you had your baby teeth, you will remember how agitated and uncomfortable it was to have the wiggling tooth especially every time you ate or moved your tongue around. You were always reminded that it was there. Healing hurts! See we fail to realize that this nation, our health, our family, and everything and anything around us requires a little pain and agitation in order to transition to a better level. We require hardships, obstacles, standstills, and bitter seasons to learn and gain a more intimate relationship with Christ. It gets hard. People leave you. Life starts wrestling with you, but Jesus is right there calling your name. He wants to hear your voice asking him to come into your heart. He wants to hear your voice praise him even though you are hurting, asking questions, or just can’t comprehend what He is doing. Trust me, He has a plan for you. Look up, look towards the sky, and look beyond the sun because honey, we can only see so much with our physical eyes. If you could just open your spiritual eyes up to the amazing things that God has in store. It’s waiting on you! New seasons, new blessings, a new heart, and a new life more abundantly!!!!!
I love my Jesus. Don’t worry about all of this stuff in the news, don’t worry about tomorrow the bible says, even the birds don’t have to worry what and when they will eat. Jesus provides it all. He came to suffer and save!
There are three types of obstacles in life;
1. God trying to teach you a lesson
2. The devil trying to test you
3. You hindering yourself from your full potential…
It’s so super easy to get our daily obstacles and challenges confused. I will say this, there are several moments where it is either 1 or 3, but we don’t recognize it because we are distracted from God at the time. Take your time, pray, and look for the signs around you.
Spreading God’s Love One Heart at a Time!
Psalm 136- “God’s mercy endures for ever”
The value of endurance lies within the walls of “I can’t go on” and “I have to keep pushing through.” If we look in the bible endurance is one of the things that most everyone had to deal with. Moses dealt with endurance when he had to constantly go to Pharaoh to let the Israelites go as well as travelling with the Israelites as they complained and during the journey. Job is another person in the book who had to endure through physical, emotional, and spiritual pain as he lost his family members, a major part of his stock, and when he had gotten sick. Finally, Jesus is the true definition of endurance when he dealt with the persecution of others and when he died on the cross for all of our sins. He endured with the weight of the world on his shoulders as he endured through as the supernatural and divine power stepped in.
Endurance is something that everyone will face as we walk through life. Endurance doesn’t come when things are going well. Endurance is born when we are faced with the challenges of life and have to persevere. Even in our most darkest moments when we feel like giving up, even in our moments when we feel like it is so easy to just let go, that’s when endurance is born. Endurance is born when we feel the weight of the world, when sweat is dripping down our face, when tears are streaming down our cheeks, when we don’t feel like waking up, when pain becomes attached to us. Endurance is born when we are in the midst of the storm. We will have to endure during life because Jesus endured.
We should strive to be more like Jesus. He endured and He is the source of our strength so we can endure. I know you can you and most of all Jesus knows that you can too.
I’ve been broken and bruised
Wondering will God still use
Crying out to you…
Got nothing left to loose
Father hear my plea
Need You to rescue me
Cause I’m broken
“Broken” Shekinah Glory
Don’t give up just because you don’t see the manifestations NOW! That should be a sign to keep working because you do not know when God will elevate your hard work to an amazing level of overflowing blessings! You are tip tapping on your breakthrough. Why quit?
Spreading God’s Love One Heart at a Time!
There were two parables that Jesus mentioned in Matthew chapter 13 verses: 44-46. The two parables consisted of a hidden treasure metaphor as well as a metaphor of a merchant man who sold all he had to buy a pearl.
The Kingdom of Heaven should constantly be on our minds all the time. Jesus doesn’t forget you, so why should you forget Him. It’s so easy to be consumed by all of the craziness on Facebook, the news, “personal drama/gossip,” and anything else that we really shouldn’t worry about but we do. Where is Jesus in our lives? Let’s take the time to evaluate ourselves and express to Jesus that we need him, repent, and show him that we love him.
What’s most important? To love and fear the Lord and to keep his commandments. Don’t lose his commandments. We have His words for a reason. We have instructions for a reason. Don’t let His word sit in the corner collecting dust. You need to read it. It’s the best book ever! We should constantly think about all of the awesome things that we won’t have to worry about in the Kingdom and work towards that. Do good, be good, make your Heavenly Father and King Jesus proud!
When I get overwhelmed with everything that is thrown at me, the first word that comes to mind is vanity. We have to realize that we must not let life’s circumstances and obstacles consume us. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed and focus on all of the issues that you have and the things that you need to get done. But just know that there is someone sitting at the right hand of the Father who died for you and does not want you to worry. His name is Jesus! He has done so much for …us. We need to realize that all of this is really NOTHING! We should all strive for our purpose in life, but we need to constantly keep in mind that our number one purpose is to fear the Lord and to keep his commandments!
8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.
9 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.
10 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.
11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.
12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil
Our King Has Risen!!
Today is the day that we celebrate the Resurrection of our King. The same King who was betrayed, beaten, spate on, who carried his cross to Calvary, who was nailed on the cross between two thieves, who died on the cross for all of our sins. This is the same King who people did not believe. This the same King who fulfilled the law of Moses (Old Testament Mosaic Covenant). This is the same King who died on a Friday, was buried in a tomb. And TODAY, TODAY, is the day that we celebrate that our King Has RISEN! He is Alive. He is still Alive. He is alive in you and me! And every miracle, every blessing, healing, and just any and everything has been done because of our Lord JESUS CHRIST who now sits at the right of the Father in Heaven. He is constantly watching us. He feels sad when we are sad. He is happy when we are happy. He is mad when we are mad. He feels our pain. He will never leave us nor forsake us. He will always be right there even when nobody is else.
Today we celebrate the RISEN King and He IS ALIVE!
Luke 24: 44-48
44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
