Growing in Christ: Do not be deceived

Be very careful not to be a world pleaser, than a Christ pleaser!! You can not, cheer the world on with their sins! And still proclaim to be a Christ follower! Choose Jesus or the world! Then your life will be BLESSED! What God said is sin, is sin! Don't take my word for it, read the bible for yourself, and stay blessed and not deceived!

James 4:4
Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Growing in Christ: Speak the word!

Hubby: Business is slow! Not enough work for truckers. Yesterday, my friend had four of his trucks repossessed!!

Me: You'll be fine! When has God ever forsaken us?

Hubby: I know, but I can't find a load for tomorrow.

Me: Sighsssss, deep breath ... Babe, the bible says.. Psalm 37:25
I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread.

Hubby: That's true!

Me: God got this! Even if everyone around you has no work! You will!

Well husband call this morning and is booked up for a week! My God is always able! Choose to believe !!!

Growing in Christ: Walk me through the storms

Six years ago, my husband, and I, dealt with one tragic event, after another! 

My husband lost his job.
He got into two car accidents.
He completely totaled out both of our vehicles.
We had no vehicles to drive.
His credit score suffered greatly from the loss of income.
His faith in God was dwindling away.

One day in a heated discussion, my husband blurted out. Nothing bad ever happens to you! But this was far from truth! What happens to my husband. Also happens to me! We are one, and in this together.

I just had a different outlook on every struggle. I chose to trust God, instead of worrying. My faith in Christ, gives me the peace I needed to go through every storm !  

(Philippians 4:6 
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;)

If your going through any difficulties today, Trust God! God never, ever, promised that life would be easy ! But He did promise, to walk you through it all, and give you His peace. Your faith in Christ will Sustain you!

Psalms 23:4
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

My life seems easy, because I choose to trust God at His word! I am blessed because of that!

Growing in Christ: Endure

The rain is graciously pouring down here in Kentucky! I am enjoying my evening on the couch. LOL I should be at the gym!

It's so hard to stay focus on working out, at the gym . Especially, on a day like this!

Struggling to keep a great pace, of workout! I often distract myself with praise and worship songs, or watch a sermon. 

The distraction helps me to keep my mind off of an intense workout ! I was reminded how often we take our eyes off of Jesus, while going through struggles. We get tired, worn out, and just plain exhausted!
If we keep our eye focus on Jesus, He will give us His peace, and strength to endure it!

Isaiah 26:3
3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You,Because he trusts in You.

Growing in Christ: Cleaning up

The light in my dining room has been out for two days now. This morning I finally have gotten around to changing it.

As I changed the light bulb, a  once darken living room, was now brightly lit ! Things that were not visible in the midst of darkness, were now very visible! Areas that need throughly cleaning, could now be attended to, as the light poured into the room.

Christ is this light in our life! He shines brightly, on areas in our life, that needs our attention. He shines that we may clean up our walk with Him, and allow nothing to hinder that growth. He also shines on those things we have hidden, revealing all!

Luke 8:17 For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.

Heavenly Father I come to You in the name of Jesus! Lord, thank You for always revealing the things that need to be attended to! Lord, Your light brings out everything that is hidden! Nothing is ever, not know to You! 

May we take these opportunities, to clear up those areas You have revealed to us, that we will always walk in Your perfect will! May we be that light, that You have called us to be , with nothing dimming that light! In Jesus name I pray, Amen!!
