The Best Gift Ever Given

Image
"Out of all the gifts that have been given, received, and exchanged the very best gift we have is our savior's love, forgiveness, and the promise of life forever through Him. I pray that you all may receive this gift it's not one that I can give you, but one we each must choose on our own personal journey in this life we have. Happy Birthday Jesus! Thank you for the best gift you gave to all who wish to receive.Kim Fincher

In Christ Alone

Image
"In my darkest days, i wept and prayed to know who Jesus was, you came to me that very night, take my hand and I'll take  you to the Father God and then I knew you were real, my savior birthed on Christmas day, and you took my hand and washed away my fears. I know you're real, you were there in my darkest sin, you kept me safe, and prepared a place, so i could show my face the world doesn't know who you are, most will never know but, im so glad i know that my Savior Lives beyond the Grave, and I put my trust, my heart, and my life in Christ alone." Kim Fincher Please share if you dare. original poem

You Are Significant!

You Are Significant!
“So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:31-33 Has the enemy told you lately that you were just insignificant and easily replaceable? Have you been worrying about your future and trying to come-up with a back-up plan? If so, my question is this then: What are you worrying about that you are not significant and will be replaced or that God will not already have a back-up plan in place if your current position is terminated? “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 God formed you in your mother’s womb! That’s how special and unique you are to Him.  “Give all your worries and c…

Stand By The King Part 2

Stand By The King-Part 2 A Study on Revelation 1-7
Chapter 6: Six Seals Broken-
Seal 1-4 The four riders represent the destructive, senseless world. Seal 1: white horse: war, victory won- human depravity Seal 2: red horse: peace taken, war & slaughter everywhere on the earth Seal 3: black horse: social & economic imbalance with scales Seal 4: pale green horse: death-1/4th of the earth Seal 5: Christian Martyrs and their question Seal 6: God’s judgment
Chapter 7: “Wait! Don’t harm the land or the sea or the trees until we have placed the seal of God on the foreheads of his servants.” “And they were shouting with a great roar, “Salvation comes from our God who sits on the throne and from the Lamb!”  They sang, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen.” That is why they stand in front of God’s throne
    and serve him day and night in his Temple. And he who sits on the throne will give them shelter.
They wil…

Stand By The King

Stand by the King Part 1 A Study on Revelation 1-7
Revelation 2-3 describes 7 Churches below is the breakdown of each: 1. A  Loyal Church 2:3-5 2.A Suffering Church 2:9-10 3.A Compromising Church 2:13-16 4.An Overly Tolerant Church 2:19-26 5.A Dead Church 3:2-5 6.A Weak but Obedient Church 3:8-10 7.A Lukewarm and uncommitted Church 3:15-16
These represent not only the 7 Churches in the writer’s time but also 7 States of Christians. We can all identify with at least one of these representing us as a Christian. The two things that Jesus said repeatedly in these passages is this, “I know all the things you do…” “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.” He pointed out each of the churches good qualities along with any bad qualities that the churches needed to take care of. As referred to in Rev. 3:19; also see (Prov. 3:12, 1 Cor. 11:32; Heb. 12:6).  
Out of these 7 the one that stood out to me was the 6th as a great role model for each of u…

I am Weak He is Strong

Image
In our weakness God is there and he fills the cracks of our broken vessel.

The flaws of our lives are filled with His superglue Grace and He replaces our dark sin nature with His light. He uses the meek, weak, and the broken as an example to show the world He loves even them and He loves you too. I have many struggles but I'm not alone and I'm not a failure I am a testimony of an overcoming, undefeated, beautiful Child of God and so are you. 

I ask you to ask God for His purpose for your life today and start listening to His voice and reading His word everyday and your life will be a blessing to your family, your children, and you will know how rich you are because you have Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and you can be a blessing by reaching out in love to someone today and meeting their needs rather it be a conversation, knowing that someone cares, a phone call or a visit these are gifts that money can not buy and true blessings. Jesus visited with the sinner and spent time wi…

Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.

Waiting on Eternity

Image
Do you ever find yourself thinking: "If only Jesus would come today." I know I have more than once. When life get's us down we often think about hiding and running away. It's a way to preserve our sanity and a way to escape our present situations. One day Jesus will return and for all eternity we will be in His presence! Waiting on eternity feels like an eternity in these bodies filled with sin, selfish-desires, pain, hurt, and pride. It becomes a heavy load if we are not careful to keep a balanced day. I try not to over do it and the best way for me is to just focus on one small task at a time, making a list, and with plenty of wiggle room for play and relaxation with my two boys who are both under 4. Life can be loved and lived with eternity in mind and that's the best thing we have to look forward to. Praise God! For all eternity is not today, but today is all we have to worry about and enjoy, thank God!  Be encouraged today my friends! Jesus loves you!!

Don't Give Up Yet!

Are you near #dying, on death's bed, or just wish you were?  Don't Give Up Yet!

Take from my #hero and His example #Jesus#Christ: "While Jesus was here on earth, he offered prayers and pleadings with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death. And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God. Even though Jesus was God's Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered. In this way, God qualified him as a perfect High Priest, and he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him." Hebrews 5:7-9 

So, whatever you are suffering rather it be physical, mental, or spiritual bow down with great reverence to God in prayer and praise, get your priorities straight and He can offer you peace and rest like nothing in the world. #Praise#God! Be Encouraged Friends in Christ's Love.
