Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Smile That Button Doesn’t Work Anymore

Most of us have a button. You know, the button that gets pushed when something or somebody _________; or traffic jam, raining and walking with no umbrella, watching favorite tv show and the power goes off; somebody just has to tell you something and 30 minutes later, you’re still listening. Come on, my friends, let’s get real. (shock face) Until we surrender to the Holy Spirit, the mask we wear starts to crack thus the button. Ain’t life grand! (smile)

As we continue, to change and grow, in spiritual maturity, we start to understand how the Word of God ties to walking through life challenges.


The bible is full of scriptures to apply to life challenges. For example, in Philippians 4:11-13, Paul states “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me”.

By faith, we’re learning to be content. By faith, we’re learning to live with little and with much. Painful sometimes and we praise The Lord! 🙂 We’re learning, we can only do all things through Christ. We’re understanding Philippians 4:19 that states “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”.

So day to day, we can rely on God supplying what we need as we walk through life regardless of the circumstances. And depending on the many circumstances that life can throw at us, let us praise God, for the victory that would give us acquired experience with this scripture, as well as, Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

As we grow spiritually, and increase our prayer life, our fruit becomes evident when we can smile when something or someone pushes the button and there is no reaction. We can smile because the button doesn’t work anymore! How about that.  (smile)  God bless you and keep moving forward!

As always, feel free to share your thoughts about your button. (smile)
