As Christians we tend to believe every adversity is an opportunity to prove and build our faith. For some this might be true. Your tests and trials are custom made for you. One thing I learned is no matter how much faith I have the obstacles still come. Continue reading “Is it your faith or your authority?”
I am not thrilled with my new driver’s license photo. However, I noticed a difference in my smiles. The photo on the right was taken in 2013. That morning I cried my eyes out. I was not happy and I was distraught in my current situation. Life was crazy and I did not want to take another breath. I was beyond done with life. But through God’s grace and mercy, He blessed me with dear girlfriends that are tried and true. Continue reading “God and good friends”
When people say they are waiting on God 99 percent of the time it is an excuse to stay in their comfort zone. I know. I use to be that person. I sat around for years “waiting on God”. God is not confused or lost, we are. Find your way to the ledge of faith. God is there waiting on you. When you get there smile and take the biggest leap you have never taken before. Trust me. I know, I know Daddy said to trust no man. LOL but this is my testimony so hear me when I say, God will honor your faith leap. He will be right by your side when you jump placing blessing after blessings in your path.
I often wonder how people, more specifically “religious” people, say that Christ is Lord (Ruler) of their lives, however when he tells them to give or do for their fellow brother/sister they find all types of excuses or act as if they didn’t hear what he said to them. In the body of Christ, there is no lack. God designed his church to be self-sufficient. If one has, we all have. No one should go without.
Our willingness to give and be of service to our fellow brother speaks to our love of Christ. If Jesus could give his life for us, why do we feel it’s optional for us to do so, especially for our fellow brother in Christ? We are to show special love to those in Christ. We do this because the love of God dwells in our hearts, not because we want accolades for doing what we’ve been commanded to do in the first place.
“As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:10 KJV)
This time of year, people get into the “giving” spirit. I’ll say this, if your “giving” isn’t done in the spirit of love then you can keep your “giving”.
“And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” (1 Corinthians 13:3, 13 KJV)
