Change and Advance

Image result for picture of change

 

In the book ” Who Moved My Cheese” it states ” Things change and they are never the same again. This looks like one of those times. That’s life! Life moves on. And so should we”.

People do not like change. Shucks, I do not like change especially if I am enjoying what I am doing. If there is no change, there is no advancement. How can you move forward if you remain in the same position? You can not. We must be adaptable,not so much that we lose focus on who we are or our purpose.

The question is do you want to move forward and change? Or would you rather stay in the same place complaining and watch others around you advance?

 

Peace!

Spoken Words

Proverbs 6:2 King James Version (KJV)

Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

The words you speak can either help you or hinder you from success.

Be Blessed!

Violence Is Not The Answer

Image result for no violence

 

In the “Essential Writings  and Speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr”  the speech titled ” The Power of  Nonviolence” written many years ago still applies today.  This is what I want to point in the writing:

“The end of violence or the aftermath of violence is bitterness. The aftermath of nonviolence is reconciliation and the creation of a beloved community. A boycott is never an end within itself. It is merely a means to awaken a serve of shame within the oppressor, but the end is reconciliation, the end is redemption.”

Violence is not going to give peace, but bitterness. The anger within is still there. The anger within is from being oppressed and not heard.  The anger within is also due to someone thinking that they are better than the other.  This includes people in authority of every aspect, who abuse their authority. People, no one is better than the other, as each one on this earth has purpose and value. From the individual who sweeps the floor, answers the phones, assigns work and completes the work, each person is of value. Violence is not going to help this world be better.  Love will make this place better. The love that is given and shown will change this world. Not only does love change, but prayers to our Lord will affect this world.

Begin to pray for your family,friends, leaders, the people within your circle for change and for them to feel the love of God. Now, you show love, as Jesus Christ said  “and this is how men will know that your are His discipline, the love that you have for one another.” 

Blessings!

Be a Giver

Image result for giving

 

Proverbs 28:22 ( ESV), A stingy man hastens after wealth and does not know that poverty will come upon him.

When the Lord Jesus walked the earth He stated that it is better to give than to receive. When you freely give, you are storing up treasures in heaven.  When ever you lend to the poor/less fortunate, God said He will repay you.

As the scripture states, a stingy man does not know that poverty will come upon him, one can be blessed in one area and lacking in another. So if you are blessed with money, but you are lacking in love, what is it worth? You are being stingy with your love. The result of this stinginess is poverty in the area of love. The Lord Jesus wants us to blessed in every area of our life.  3 John 2 (ESV), Beloved I pray that all may be well with you and that you may be in good heath, as it goes well with your soul.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Teach us not be like the individual in the scripture. Teach us how to be givers. Givers of our time, money and love.

In Jesus Name.

Amen.

Be Blessed!

Difficulty and Hope

Image result for picture of hope

 

Difficult times will touch everyone’s life at sometime or another. It may be a financial, family, or physical. It may be foreseen or not. Regardless, one must decide how they will respond. It really is important on how we respond on the onset of difficult times. Will we be hopeful or will be depressed and sadden?  I encourage you to be hopeful and believe that the best is yet to come. In other words have faith.  Faith is believing in something that you cannot see. Faith is the substance of things hoped for in the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1). Father Abraham believed God and it was counted unto him as righteousness.

Hebrews 6:12-15 New Life Version – 12 Do not be lazy. Be like those who have faith and have not given up. They will receive what God has promised them.

God’s Promise

13 When God made a promise to Abraham, He made that promise in His own name because no one was greater. 14 He said, “I will make you happy in so many ways. For sure, I will give you many children.” 15 Abraham was willing to wait and God gave to him what He had promised.

Hope is defined as to cherish a desire with anticipation; to want something to happen or be true;trust; to desire with exception of obtainment or fulfillment; to expect with confidence.

You will find if you search on “how hope can help you”, written articles regarding hope and how it works. Below are three.

Having hope and believing, will help us all through difficult times in life.

Differences

Image result for differences

 

We are all different. We all have a different thumbprint.We all think differently and handle issues differently. That is what makes us unique. No one can be me, not even my children. They may have my ways and some of my thought processes, but they can not be me. No one can be you.

I Peter 2:9 King Jame Version But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light

Celebrate your uniqueness today. Celebrate the Christ in you, the hope of glory. As you go through out the day and someone seems strange to you, remember they may be thinking the same thing about you. Extend your hand, give a smile, show some love.

John 13:35 KJV By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Be Blessed!

Our Clothing

 

Image result for cartoon picture of smelling clothes

 

Our clothes require cleaning either by our self or someone does the laundry for us. We want our clothes to be clean when we go out or are just sitting around our home. Image going to the store wearing clothes worn 3 days ago from the gym. Oh my! Even if one has showered, the smell from the clothes will have people covering their noses or talking with wide eyes because they are trying to keep a straight face.Some may just come right out and say ” you stink”.  No one likes to be told they stink.

Image trying to go before the Lord as in the days of old, without the Priest, sacrifice, burnt incense and the smoke. We would not be alive.  Thank God that our Lord Jesus Christ was the final atonement for the sins of man. When Christ died on the cross, the veil was split. We no longer need to go the Priest to speak to God directly. We now go to God in the name of Jesus.  Even if we come to God stinky in the name of Jesus, God see’s Christ. Christ is making the petitions on our behalf.

Romans 5:11 King James Version (KV) And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. 

Hebrews 10:10 KJV 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Christ does not look at the clothes we wear or how we smell, He looks at the heart. Is that not good news?

Welcome 2017

 

Image result for welcome 2017

2016 was year of change, challenges and growth. Was I sad to see 2016 leave? No. Was I excited to see 2017 come in? Hmmmm, kind of. I am not really sure how to answer that one.  As I get older, I realize more, the importance of the day, the time, the present moment.  Did I accomplish something? Am I happy or mad?  Am I being lovely?

The number 17 in the Bible symbolizes “overcoming the enemy” and “complete victory.” The enemy could be procrastination, you know, not doing what needs to be done. The enemy could be problem at home, work or among friends. The enemy could be leaving money on the table.  No leaving money on the table,is one that I am not going to do. For example, with corporate companies, insurance benefits now come with perks in which you earn health bucks that can be used for medical benefits. If you work out 30 minutes a day, you earn $5. Last year, I did not do a good job with this and that meant, I left money on the table. I refuse to do so this year. So, I made it a goal.

A goal is an end, a result that you have to work towards. It is something that you will benefit from. For 2017 I wrote out my goals. Now for 2016, I do not recall writing goals and if I did, I have not idea where I put them. On December 31st, I made sure all of my mail was opened and bills put to side so they can be addressed. I am probably the only one, that lets their mail pile up. Yeah Right!  I refused to start the new year with a pile of mess from 2016. Do you have mess that you have allowed to come over to 2017?  Stop the madness. Start 2017 fresh.

I hope 2017 is a year of over coming. May you be blessed beyond measure. May you reach higher heights and deeper deeps in Christ Jesus. May you know your purpose. May you love and love some more.

Blessings!

Love Poem

 

Image result for heart

 

Oh that men would praise His name, would praise His name to the ends of the earth.

Jesus was whipped, thorn and crucified for us, so we may have life.

Oh that men would praise His name.

He died and rose triumphantly with the keys of death.

Oh that men would praise his name.

Come unto me and I will give you rest.

Oh that men would praise His name.

I created you in my image and given you power.

Oh that men would praise His name.

Even though you forsake me, I still love you.

Oh that men would praise His name.

You are a royal priesthood, a chosen generation.

Oh that men would praise His name.

I love you says the Lord, I love you.

Be Blessed!

Love Like a Child

Image result for children and love

Love is in ingrained within us. Look at a child, they love unconditionally. Even if they are done wrong, they love. Look at that same child as a teenager, their views and thoughts are  taught by their parents, guardians and peers. Now that love which was so freely given is guarded. They do not freely love. PEOPLE! Hate is taught. Love in ingrained within us. Let us be like a child and love. Freely love. This world needs LOVE!

 Proverbs 10:12 (KJV)  Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!  Loves covers all wrongs!

Blessings!
