Heres a personal glimpse into my faith walk:
At the beginning of this month Joseph & me decided to start the Dave Ramsey Program again to stabilize our finances, 2 weeks later we found out that I'm pregnant (unplanned blessing n surprise), the day after David gets a fever sunday night and it lasts off and on until yesterday today was his first 24 hours with no fever. Yesterday Joseph lost his job of over 9 years- but that morning God woke me up with Romans 3:23 "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard." That tells me we all sin and we pay the consequences for those sin but if you read on "24 Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins." That tells me yes there are temporary punishments and consequences but to those who remain faithful theres eternal Joy so no hopeless situation and no bad news can take that away from me!
God has a way and a plan for us! He's already there ahead of us making the path for us our job is to stay on that narrow path of Faith in Christ, remaining in Him, He becomes our strength when we are just too weak to deal with life today and our Spirit when our hearts been broken again by disappointment and despair. Im sharing this to share my faith with you today that where there's faith in Jesus theres always a way and you never need to turn in your faith badge and give up and give into the desires and temptations this world offers because the price for that is eternal suffering of your Soul in Hell.
I want all my friends and family to live in the Eternal Hope and Joy found in Faith in Christ. I know that this post will offend some, but I hope that it encourages many more. My husband and me already had a plan for him to be a ft driver and that's what he's doing now so we will be okay because our God provided the way already. He's also looking into other jobs with hourly pay just in case the driving ft doesnt pan out. Today I'm feeling pretty nauseas and decided to stay home for the 3rd sunday in a row not because Im less Christian but because my flesh needs rest now if I was more faithful and stronger I'd overcome and go to church anyways and my husbands not going because I'm not going which is his flesh I'm telling you this because I'm just a small struggling person maybe like you are I don't possess anything greater than you I sin, I fail but I always stay in Him and that's what we have to do keep Jesus in our hearts and our homes or the devil will come in and possess us.
I shared this above post on a dave ramsey budgeting group and after 28 likes, several encouraging comments, and a few people who were highly offended the post was removed. Our choices have consequences and some people don't want to hear that truth. Hell is real and those who chose to live in sin and away from God will go there. I'm sorry if that offends you but it's the truth and the only hope that I see in this world is my trust and faith in Jesus Christ; He's my rock and my strong tower in this crazy broken mess of a world we live in.
Blessings in Christs Love,

2 Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. 2 You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world.[a] He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. 3 All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else.
4 But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) 6 For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. 7 So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.
8 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9 Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Between my husband great love for me exactly as I am and my Lord's love and encouragement for me I realized it's time to embrace that I'm mentally disabled and that doesn't mean I am any less wonderful and beautifully made in God's image it means that this is who I am and who I can relate to and prayerfully encourage with God's love, word and truth.
It's been freeing to accept this about myself so now I can look at the hope and possibilities not the road blocks and hopelessness of what I can't do that you or someone else maybe able to do with no problem. I have gifts and skills too they are just as valuable and useful and so do you friend!
Embrace your whole self and allow God to use you for His Kingdom and His Glory! amen
Love you in the Lord,
