LOVE

I read this post written by Jo Ann who writes a wonderful blog called Fearless In Jesus Christ. I thought this was the most amazing piece about Love, and most importantly about God’s love for us, His children.

You will always find something uplifting at Fearless In Jesus Christ. The title of the post is Love–Penguin Prompt. I pray you will enjoy it as much as I did.

A shining light
Ready to take flight
No longer filled with fear
Now God is near
Keeping me protected
Never rejecting

And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as My people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they show20170516_135827 much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. –Ezekiel 33:31

For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search My sheep, and seek them. –Ezekiel 34:11

And I will make them and the places round about My hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessings. –Ezekiel 34:26

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. –2 Corinthians 3:1720170516_134033

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: –2 Corinthians 4:3

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. –2 Corinthians 4:18

Blessings

I’m always saying in my comments and replies to comments about what a blessing this or that is to me. I’m sure you’ve noticed this if you have commented on my blog, or I have commented on yours.

This isn’t lip service.

I find that when something/someone/some words makes me happy, or some one thanks me for something, it is a blessing from God because anything that is good that comes out of me is from God, and anything that is good that comes to me, no matter what form, it’s not praise of man that gave that to me but God Who has rained down a blessing to me.

So, I would ask for you to forgive me for always saying, “what a blessing” or that “you have blessed me” with a comment, or a thank you but I won’t apologize for what I feel is a blessing from God.

Too many times we accept words and consider them an accomplishment of our own but when anything that is praise comes our way, it is a blessing from God. It is a little kiss or hug from Him, and should be treated that way.

Thank you God for all the blessing you give me everyday, and for all His children that He uses to bestow those blessings onto me.

Now What?

Yesterday, I talked about 1 Simple Step That Can Save Your Life, now what?

A walk with God is not this burdensome path up the highest mountain you can think of, God wants you to be happy. God knows we are human and knowing us better than anyone, since He did create us. He made it as simple, for us, as possible.

20170513_103350Here are some ways, that have made my walk with Jesus and God, not such an ordeal, but the joyous, full of blessings journey, He intended it to be.

1. Accept Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. I explained how simple that was yesterday in 1 Simple Step. Here’s what God’s words says about this: “That if they shalt confess with thy mouth The Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9 His Word also says that there is no way to the Father except through the Son.

20170516_1349322. Pray/Talk to God. Prayer and talking to God is a big part of getting to know yourself better and God. He loves hearing from us. Tell Him everything, He already knows it because He knows our thoughts before we have them, so we don’t have to hold back. He loves us so much that even when we don’t know what or how to pray for something His Holy Spirit that lives within us prays for us. Now, that’s love.

3. Read my Bible. It is God talking to you. It’s not some secret map that we need a decoder ring to decipher. God will reveal to us what He wants us to learn, as He knows we are ready to learn it. Don’t rely on what someone tells you it says or what verses mean. God will do that the more we read our Bible.

20170514_1438464. Remember no matter what you do, there is nothing that can separate you from God’s Love or youI mess up daily. I use to feel like such a failure, that God was just going to give up on me and He should, what a mess. I was hopeless. Try as I might I’d always mess up. But His word says, “For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

5. Let God guide you. Don’t ever let anyone tell you how you should love, serve, listen, pray, follow, believe, etc, in God. He will lead you the way He wants you to go. Follow that, all of our walks with God are unique. Follow the walk He wants you to take, the way He wants you to take it, not the way anyone else wants or thinks you should.

So, once again, easy, simple things. I pray, you found something that might help you get closer to God because He is close to you, waiting for you.

Remember God today on this day we celebrate fathers’s. God is the greatest Father and Creator of us all :)

 

1 Simple Step That Can Save Your Life

The 1 simple, easy step that can save your life,  trust in Jesus Christ and ask for His forgiveness. It says so right there in Romans 10:9 to be exact(among other places in the Bible), true story, look it up.

Ok, but how do I do that, you ask?

Well, right in the back of my Bible there is a prayer. When you are ready to save your life, here it is, just read it:IMG_0866

Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and have displeased You in many ways. I believe You died for my sin and only through faith in Your death and resurrection can I be forgiven.

I want to turn from my sin and ask You to come into my life as my Savior and Lord. From this day on, I will follow You by living a life that pleases You. Thank You, Lord Jesus for saving me. Amen
