Let’s support one another

1-corinthians

It is of little importance to me that I should be evaluated by you or by any human court. (1 Corinthians 4:3)

Although I am blessed by God to be HIS child I, along with all of his children in this world, we are all still within the world which means that we still have flaws and weaknesses. What is my biggest weakness you ask? Nope, I am not a chocoholic or anything. I am a worry wart.

In fact, this is my biggest challenge. This is actually why I need HIS Unconditional Love as much as I do. Unfortunately, I am often judged by others when I have one of my “worry attacks” and these often occur more often when I am a bit overwhelmed or stressed about something.

Despite my being judged by others as “annoying” or anything else, I know that each time that I reach out to HIM I can not only feel peace about whatever stresses me out, but also be reminded that he loves me despite this fault.

So the next time you feel judged by others for whatever you feel are your weaknesses are remember that God will always love you Unconditionally.

His Mercy Endureth Forever

mercy-endureth

O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. (Psalm 136:1)

Many, like myself, have continued to hang onto our past mistakes/regrets like a badge of honor. In fact, I have often used these as stepping stones to try and improve myself so that I am not only good enough for others, but good enough for God.

Lately, HE has been reminding me that he has forgiven me of my past and that in order to move forward into the future that he has planned for me I need let go and realize that the love of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has nailed these sins to the cross.

After a rather challenging week last week, I took to my knees and prayed that HE would once again rain down his Unconditional Love on me. He quickly responded by both reminding me that he will always love me, but also sending me directly to scriptures within the bible to remind me of this.

While I found the first reminder that “His Mercy Endures FOREVER” in Jeremiah, I also found this in Psalms (above), Ephesians and several other times within the Bible. I quickly found out that this phrase appears an estimated 35 times within the Good Book. I guess this is his way of continuing to remind us that he will always love us, all we need to is commit to the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and remember that HE raised his son from the dead to wash away our sins.

Be at Peace Today and remember that HE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU!!

 

Real Intimacy

For I am persuaded that not even death or life, angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostile powers, height or depth or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8: 38-39)

It is that time of the year again – Valentines Day. While there are those of us who enjoy this “so called” holiday, I have never been a fan. Why you ask? I guess the best answer that I can give is that I have never wanted to pressure my spouse into spending his hard earned money on flowers that will wilt and die just to show me that he loves me when he can show me in little ways everyday. I also find it ridiculous for “man” to determine that we should show love on one day of the year when God says that we should show love to our fellow man everyday.

Fortunately, if we follow God’s plans for our lives we can not only find love from one another, but can also realize the ultimate love that he has for us. Despite the pretty trying trial that I have been facing lately, which has had me questioning HIS plan for my life, I still know with all my heart that God loves me.

So, this Valentines Day I will try to remember HIS Unconditional Love despite the receiving any man made items like cards, candy or flowers. I also feel honored to share this love with each and every one of you. Let’s share this love this holiday season and remember to be kind to one another.

He is Still the God of Miracles

Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people. (Psalm 77:14)

While I am continuing to try to stay patient (isn’t easy for me) for God’s ultimate miracle in my life, I have continued to be reminded that he is the still the God of miracles. I was fortunate to see this first hand last night and I woke up excited to share this example with the followers of those who are looking for examples of just how Unconditional HIS Love really is.

While I have tried to keep reminding myself, despite my circumstances, that God has pulled me out of the “pit” and placed me on the solid rock of Mt. Zion there have been times when I have felt that hard gust of wind trying to knock me back down. As a result, I was once again back on my knees yesterday asking HIM to show me a miracle.

Despite my allowing a weakness in faith to begin making its way into my heart this week, God answered my prayer yesterday and showed me that what looked like an impossibility could become possible if I just believed.

If you are a football fan, you are probably starting to figure out what I am talking about. You would be correct, the AMAZING comeback by the New England Patriots in Superbowl 51 (https://youtu.be/tXMPIbo54Mk). Yes, I am a HUGE FAN of the Patriots and I have been looking forward to our winning this game to be the highlight of a rather difficult week. I was also asking God to make this HIS sign to me that this would be the beginning to a turn around in my life.

After the first half of this game, my faith was once again faltering. Here we were down 28-0 as the clock began to wind down in this game. As the fourth quarter came around, God took this time to show me that no matter the circumstances he could bring about a miracle. That is EXACTLY what happened!! That’s right, the Pats came back to win #SB51 34-28. I realize that this it is just sports, but this was HIS way of showing me that if I just let go and trust him that he can make miracles like this happen.

So, let’s take this and keep our FAITH that HE IS STILL THE GOD OF MIRACLES. That can be any miracle from an amazing SuperBowl comeback to saving your child or even fixing your financial situation. I am so grateful that God loves me enough to forgive me for my weak faith to put me back on Mt. Zion and proving that he will always be there to love me UNCONDITIONALLY.

Remember, he can do the same for you!! Just believe and remember that he raised Jesus Christ from the dead and he is still capable of any and all miracles in the lives of those who believe.
