He Can Use the Broken

Image
"For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle--I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying--a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth." 1 Timothy 2:5
He can use the broken in heart and body and spirit and heart. That's God and that's what He does He chooses the weak to make foolish the strong. The meek to humble the proud. Real Christianity is not reflected in a healthy way on Christian network tv or even radio broadcasts it's reflected one-on-one between You and Him. Once you have accepted Christ as your Savior and allow Him to heal your heart and make you into His image then He can use you to serve His Kingdom. Not use as in the worldly sense of take advantage of but use as in give a better purpose for life a purpose worth living for, and worth dying for. A purpose with a testimony that can be used to enc…

Praise the Lord! GLORY!!

Psalm 103
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
2 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.
3 He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.
4 He redeems me from death
and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
5 He fills my life with good things.
My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
6 The Lord gives righteousness
and justice to all who are treated unfairly. 7 He revealed his character to Moses
and his deeds to the people of Israel.
8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
9 He will not constantly accuse us,
nor remain angry forever.
10 He does not punish us for all our sins;
he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.
11 For his unfailing love toward those who fear him
is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
12 He has removed our sins as far from us
as the east is from the west.
13 The Lord is like a father to his children,
tender and compa…

How Do I Survive?

"Let this be recorded for a generation to come,
so that a people yet unborn may praise the Lord:
19 that he looked down from his holy height,
from heaven the Lord looked at the earth,
20 to hear the groans of the prisoners,
to set free those who were doomed to die;
21 so that the name of the Lord may be declared in Zion,
and his praise in Jerusalem,
22 when peoples gather together,
and kingdoms, to worship the Lord." Psalm 102:18-22

In our weaknesses we may be vulnerable and hurt enough to make choices that we will later regret. These choices are usually to get revenge on the one who caused us pain and hurt rather it be a relative, a spouse, or a boyfriend/girlfriend, or a best-friend. They may have screwed up and their mess up hurt you, so you not thinking straight do the same to them. It's a viscous cycle that is hard to break on our own strength or by will power alone. We need a super-power, a supernatural strength to break the cycle of sin and that power is available to those…

Make it Your Business

As a stay-at-home mom I was tempted to make money try different businesses I can do at home with my two boys but I had to pray about it and hear God tell me in my heart, "No, my daughter I have a better plan for you. Be content and minister to those in need." This is why I'm making it my business to share other ministries, missions, and outreaches. such a Gospel for Asia.

Willfully Blind

"Why that's very strange!" the man replied. "He healed my eyes, and yet you don't know where he comes from? We know that God doesn't listen to sinners, but he is ready to hear those who worship him and do his will. Ever since the world began, no one has been able to open the eyes of someone born blind. If this man were not from God, he couldn't have done it." John 9:30-33

The Jewish leaders did not know where Jesus came from. The blind man's astonishment was understandable-- a healing like this was unprecedented. Jesus' works confirmed his origin as from God. Once his true identity was known, belief and discipleship should have followed, but the Jewish leaders were willfully blind. sub notes from the NLT study bible pg. 1790

Many people today are willfully blind to Jesus' amazing love and power. Are you stuck in the rituals of religion and have forgotten the reason for the religion? I pray that you will open your heart to the Holy Spirit…

Take a Break & Relax!

Image
"Come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come to him with thanksgiving.
Let us sing psalms of praise to him.
3 For the Lord is a great God,
a great King above all gods.
4 He holds in his hands the depths of the earth
and the mightiest mountains.
5 The sea belongs to him, for he made it.
His hands formed the dry land, too.

6 Come, let us worship and bow down.
Let us kneel before the Lord our maker,
7 for he is our God.
We are the people he watches over,
the flock under his care.
If only you would listen to his voice today!" When you really grasp that God is the creator and he holds our destiny then you can take a break & relax! Most mornings I start by prayer, reading, making breakfast, and cleaning the dishes but on Fridays I usually bypass the normal routine by taking the boys out and getting donuts while the hubby is still asleep and this morning we went for a family walk afterwards. Then I came home and read in the Word. It's o…

The Heart of Things

"Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life." Proverbs 4:24

"The heart represents the center of emotions, thinking, and reasoning from O.T. The heart is crucial in the battle between wisdom and foolishness, between righteousness and evil." from the NLT Study Bible pg. 1023

"A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart." Luke 6:45
"God Blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God." Matthew 5:8

Today there's a generation, "for the heart of these people are hardened, and their ears cannot hear, and they have close their eyes-- so their eyes cannot see, and their ears cannot hear, and their hearts cannot understand, and they cannot turn to me and let me heal them." Matthew 13:15

Let us instead be the ones who:  "Thank God! Once you were slaves …

"Come As You Are"

"Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:28

As far as clothing is concerned, my husband gave a great summary this morning on why he doesn't dress up for church any more; he said you shouldn't have to dress to impress others to like you, that they should like you for who you are and if that's pants and a t-shirt, or a suit just be yourself. He is a pants and casual shirt guy so that's what he's most comfortable in. I myself am the same and thought that it's good to wear a dress and uncomfortable shoes to church because it makes you feel good; but really nah, I changed my mind this morning too, and I felt much more comfortable to come as I am to church. We go to thank God, praise Him, and worship Him and to encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ. That's are agenda so clothing isn't an issue and the only issue I have is girls dressing very revealing and disrespectfully where you can see thei…
