Thank God for forgiveness

How many times have we done or said something that we knew in our heart wasn’t right but we did it anyway? How many people you met along the way that you caused some form of pain? How many times have we said sorry but repeated the same actions? We have all done things in our lives that we may not be so proud of. Isn’t wonderful to know that God can and will still forgive us if we ask him in a sincere and humble way. We are not perfect but we need to strive a little harder to do what’s right and stop thinking that you will be given a second chance to fix it. Second chance are not promises they’re gifts given to us. Don’t take them for granted but learn how to do right the first time around.

Good Friday

It’s Good Friday!!! They crucified my Lord and Savior and they thought that was the end but behold it was just the beginning of great things ahead. Through our trials and tribulation if we continue to hold on we too shall rise again. πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™

Love by letting go

But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:44-48 NLT)

Learn to love through the hurt and pain that others cause you. This is difficult to do but it is a big step in freeing yourself of that stress and pain that can last a lifetime if we are not careful. Many people are walking around with grudges over things that happened years ago and if you ask them, they may not even remember all the details. They harvest this inside of them which leads to physical and emotional problems. Being able to forgive and move on takes a lot of time and patience. Begin to realize that you are not doing it for that person but your doing it for you, who is worth more than anything in this world. You are one of a kind and deserve better than you receive. You need to let go so you can heal and become that extraordinary person that you really are.πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™

Roman 8:28 be encourage

We know that in all things God works for good with those who love him, those whom he has called according to his purpose.
This is true I am a witness. Give thanks and praise for everything πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™
Remain encourage, it may seem impossible right now but with faith the impossible can become possible. Keep praying and trusting. Change is coming soon.

1 Peter 5:6-8

Humble yourselves, then, under God’s mighty hand, so that he will lift you up in his own good time. Leave all your worries with him, because he cares for you. Be alert, be on the watch! Your enemy, the Devil, roams round like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:6-8 GNB)

Stay humble and know that God is in control of your life. There will be many out there that will come to deceive you and try to lead you down the wrong path. Keep strong in your faith.πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™

Psalms 100:5. Faithfulness

The Lord is good; his love is eternal and his faithfulness lasts for ever. (Psalms 100:5 GNB)
God love and faithfulness does not change even when we do. This alone is reason enough to be thankfulπŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™
If God was like us oh, what trouble we would be in. How many times have we been angry with our love ones that we have stopped talking to them and even refuse to care? This has happen to many people and some never got a chance to forgive that person because they later on died and your left with that empty feeling. Looking back and can’t even understand why you let it go that far. Why did pride take over so much you couldn’t let go and forgive. You couldn’t be the bigger person and ask for forgiveness. Just imagine all that we do that God doesn’t agree with if he decided to cut us off, what would happen. Never protecting you anymore from seen and unseen danger. Not allowing you to live a happy life just not caring anymore. This would be a sad day knowing that the his unconditional love was no more. I am thankful God is not like man, hope you are too. πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™

Philippians 4:6

Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart. (Philippians 4:6 GNB)

When you pray you need to remain humble and spend some time not only asking but just saying thank you Lord for all you have done and continue to do daily. We need to get away from just always asking for things and not just being grateful for what we have and just saying Thank you Lord for remembering me when I didn’t remember you. Thank you Lord for supplying my needs and wants when you saw fit. So much to be Thankful for. πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™

Not alone

He helps us in all our troubles, so that we are able to help others who have all kinds of troubles, using the same help that we ourselves have received from God. So our hope in you is never shaken; we know that just as you share in our sufferings, you also share in the help we receive. (2 Corinthians 1:4, 7 GNB)

Many times we go through life thinking know one understand what we going through and that we are truly alone but from the verse above we gain hope to know we are not alone. God is there through everything we are going through. In my personal life I been through several things that felt I couldn’t share with anyone and you struggle with what’s the right decisions to make but I learn through those time to increase my faith. God will direct you if you listen and you will even be surprise who he puts in your path that understand what your going through. It maybe a person you physically meet or something you read or even hear on tv/radio but the point is someone is going through what you are too. We are in this struggle of life together continue to hang tough. Keep praying! Your coming out of this with a smile again. πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™

Life- struggles

That moment when you see someone standing by the side dress normal and just talking to themselves and looking confuse and sad at life. You stop and wonder what could have happen to lead to this? Then you realize LIFE happened and if your not strong enough that person can be you in an instant. The trials, tribulation and grief of the everyday struggle is enough to tear you down. I know I have been torn at but I have grace and mercy on my side through my faith and praying that builds me up. Don’t just be brought down find something positive to lift you back up. I go back to Romans for strength.
We know that in all things God works for good with those who love him, those whom he has called according to his purpose. In view of all this, what can we say? If God is for us, who can be against us? Certainly not God, who did not even keep back his own Son, but offered him for us all! He gave us his Son β€” will he not also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:28, 31, 32 GNB)

Forms of blessings

But Jesus answered, β€œThe scripture says, β€˜Human beings cannot live on bread alone, but need every word that God speaks.’ ”.
Your blessings come in different formsβ€πŸ™πŸ˜€ Many times we thing being bless is based on financial growth but blessings come in different forms. Good health, having a job, food to eat, roof over your head, etc. the list goes on having friends and family. Take a moment and realize just being alive today is a blessing. Be thankful!
