Suffering Strong

Be encouraged today!

Suffering or trial, in any area of life you are encountering it, will be used to advance Yahweh’s purpose in you. He is making you whole, placing you on His path, filling you with spiritual strength, and laying the foundation for your future.
We all suffer to some degree. Yahweh uses it to strengthen when you allow Him to.

I’m no different. I thank Yahweh for it. Why? Because it furthers His Kingdom. One day we will meet Him in Heaven and be with Him for Eternity!

I’m looking forward to that! Aren’t you?

Comment and let’s interact and chat; share your story.

No Anxiety

Be Humbled!

1 Peter 5_6-7 image

Yahweh knows us and our needs, and He still loves us and wants to be our burden-bearer.

It yields great peace to simply know that there is Someone who cares. He cares about you so much that He sent His Son, Jesus; He cut through all the “red tape” to reach you!

He is our peace, and He freely takes our burdens on Himself if we will only place them in His hands.

Where are your burdens today? In His hands or yours?

Yahweh’s Steadfastness

Psalm 139_1-6_14_17 image

What a satisfaction to know that while our future may sometimes look uncertain at best, and useless at worst, Yahweh knows exactly what exists ahead. The destructive things that come to us in life are the consequence of fallen humanity living on a broken planet, but through it all, Yahweh’s hand is yet just as steadfast and He will guide us.

As v. 17 says in the scripture image: How precious are Your thoughts concerning me, O’ God! How vast in number they are!

The vastness of Him is incomprehensible to us. I am in absolute awe of Him and all that entails of Him.

What are your thoughts on this? Comment and let’s chat.

Equality of Yahweh

James 2_8-9 image
To consider one race, group or individual as less important than another is a sin, in view of the fact that Christ died for all people and for each one singly. At the foot of the Cross, we’re all equal, both in our worth to Yahweh (He sent His Son to die for each of us) and in our need to accept His gift of salvation. Let’s learn to respect and honor every person. Redemption is for us all.

We Know The Shepherd

John 10_14-15 image

Jesus came to deliver us from death and to offer to us an abundant life in Him. He wants to fill our lives with purpose and satisfaction in Him. By His death and resurrection, Christ has opened a new quality of life for all mankind, where “If anyone belongs to Christ, there is a new creation. The old things have gone; everything is made new!” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

If there an area of your life where the “thief” has come to steal, kill, or destroy; you can turn to the Lord Jesus (now) because, “With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20).

Being Caring

Matthew 25_40_45 image
These are Jesus’ words to the people.

When we neglect to care for human needs, we neglect to place just importance on others, lowering our own character in the eyes of the Lord and welcoming His conviction upon ourselves.

Here Jesus likens our conduct of those who are poverty-stricken or distraught with our conduct of Himself. What we do for others, we do for Jesus.

There have been times in my past that I would ignore someone who needed help because I felt it was inconvenient. I’m sure at some point in time we’ve all done it. We place more importance on ourselves than on what we do for Jesus.

Let’s turn that attitude around. What will you do for Jesus today?

Me: I’ll pay more attention to the needs of others. I’ll do my best to offer help when and where needed.

Your turn! Go!

A New Command: Love One Another

John 13_34-35 image

When we’ve been misunderstood and abused, we become more understanding toward those unfortunates of our world who grieve under the heels of cruelty and darkness. We identify with their suffering and can surely “weep with those that weep.” Our hearts grow a tenderness and compassion which will help to improve our relationships and nourish our souls.

Sure, it hurts and causes feelings of indignation when we are hurt. Nevertheless, we are not to take vengeance. Yahweh commands us to live by a new command of life: the law of love, that accepts misunderstanding and abuse and answers to them with tenderness.

Love as Yahweh loves us. The only way to do that is through the Holy Spirit. We’re unable to do it on our own. It requires something that we are incapable of, alone.

By this, all will know we are His disciples; because we love one other.

Allow the Holy Spirit in. Allow Him to soften our hearts; loving those unfortunate ones we relate to because we’ve already been there.

I like the quote:

“Be kind! For everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.”

Even though you don’t know their battle, you can still relate in some way.

How are you traveling? Share your experience with others and your love for them in the comments.

The Body Of Christ

1 Corinthians 12_12 image

One Body

The human body is a splendid being. Scientists can’t reproduce it or even fully understand it. It is a union of many parts. Each member of the body associates to and depends on other parts of the body in strengthening the well-being of the entire body.

The same is true of all believers as members of the body of Christ. We need to function in Christ’s body as the parts of the human body function. Just like the severing of a limb hinders the whole body, there is no Christian brother/sister that we don’t need. The Greek word translated “body” is related to the word meaning “to heal, preserve, be made whole.” This word distinctly shows how our lives are totally woven together within the body of Christ and how one’s well-being depends upon the well-being of others (Romans 14:7).

Is there a severed or strained relationship between you and a brother or sister in Christ? Go to him or her today. Allow Christ to knit you together in His Church (His Body).

When I was in my early 20s I felt like I was severed from the body of Christ. It was after I graduated high school, got married and had a baby and was far away from the family of Yahweh. I was totally disconnected. It was at that point I made some new friends and they invited me to The Church they were part of the family of. I certainly felt like I was a part of Yahweh’s family and again, part of HIS body.

Transforming Grace of Yahweh

2 Timothy 1_8-10 image

It’s grace solely that has the capability to transform lives. Grace solely has the power to bring liberty to the captives. By grace solely, we are saved.

Yahweh has a plan and purpose for your life that He’s given to no one else. Your life is intended to make an eternal result for His Kingdom that will rule for all time.

First purpose: Loving Yahweh is your highest calling, and in loving Yahweh you will experience the overflowing joy and fulfillment possible.

The second purpose: loving others in reply to your love for Yahweh. (Mark 12:31, Ephesians 5:1-2, Acts 26:16).

We are commanded to genuinely love Him and others with the very love we’ve been given.

He fills you with the breath of life and then untiringly waits for you to live your life as an exquisite song of worship and praise to Him.

How’s that working for you? Share how your purpose is affecting Yahweh’s Kingdom. Let’s worship and praise Him together, as the Body of Christ.

Healing in Peace

Matthew 5_8-9 image

Our struggles come because we are selfish. Yahweh desires to cure us, His children, of our greed and selfishness. And Yahweh says that as His children we are not to be part of the problem but part of the solution.

It is a smart one who steps in and says, “I’m sorry.” It might seem that there is always one who’s the first to say it, but Jesus noted that true peacemakers are prepared to swallow pride to heal the wounds.

Let’s face it, there are times when we want what we want when we want it, our way.

Human nature is selfish. But, with the Holy Spirit’s help, we can overcome it. We can have peace. We can be healed. We can be healed through peace.

How are you doing? Share your story of peace and healing. If you’re seeking to be healed and haven’t found it yet, and need prayer; contact me here, for prayer, now.
