We Can Smile Because

Wahoo! It’s Wednesday and we’re choosing by faith to smile because Matthew 5:16 says “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

God gets the glory, each time we extend a genuine 😄 to someone, in spite of how we feel or what we are going through! It shows his presence in our life. 😜

We can smile because God woke us up today. 😜
We can smile because it brings positive energy and disarms negativity. 😜
We can smile because God loves us unconditionally.
We can smile because God answers our prayers.
We can smile because God’s mercy and grace is sufficient for today.
We can smile because God is more than able to deliver us from our stuff.
We can smile because God provides for our needs and we are blessed and highly favored.

So regardless, of things, going on in the world, we can give and receive smiles because God is in charge and will never leave us or forsake us!! 😜 How about that! 😜

Blessings

Happy Tuesday! 😜 By faith, we thank God for equipping us to be a blessing to others!

Life

Life is always changing. Romans 8:28 says “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”.

 

20130622-024607.jpg

We must be open to changes in life. God is always in charge and can use all things in life (opportunities) to keep us moving forward.

Opportunities help us grow and adapt to one another. Opportunities will test the fruit or lack of fruit in us–love (giving), joy (gladness), peace (free from worry and fear), long suffering (patience), gentleness (kindness), goodness (generosity), faith (dependability), meekness (gentleness) and temperance (self-control). (shock face)

Life is about adapting to stuff that is different.
Life is about adapting to people who are different.
Life is about respecting a persons right to choose–whether we agree or not.
Life is about encouraging one another with our hopes and dreams.
Life is about respecting each others thoughts and the different ways we communicate.
Life is about loving like Jesus. (1Corinthians 13:3-8 (NKJV): 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails).
Life is about forgiveness.

If God loves us, who are we not to follow his lead?

Your thoughts and comments are welcomed. (smile)

Ugh, A Bad and Challenging Day

How was your day? Ever have one of those days that this and that goes south! Stuff just keeps on coming, no matter what you do! 😰 Something must have been in the air today or God pruned me to add more fruit!

20130620-183013.jpg

Thank God for surviving this day! I thought I share in case someone else had a challenging day, where the stuff just kept on coming!

Let us always be kind to ourselves when we have a bad day! Refuse to entertain the “if I woulda this, I coulda that”😜 and just thank God for his mercy and grace!!

Your thoughts on challenging days 😜

It’s Roll With It Wednesday!

Praise God, it’s roll with it Wednesday and we’re blessed he woke us up today! 😜
Smile and roll with it is a choice! 😜
Smile and roll with it because sometimes, it is what it is! 😜
Smile and roll with it because the joy of The Lord is our strength! 😜

20130618-204823.jpg

Smile and roll with it because Romans 8:28 tells us “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”.

Have faith that good or bad, right or wrong, God can work it out! 😜 His will be done.

God bless us as we keep moving forward by faith knowing your mercy and grace is sufficient for today! 😀

And if we must sing a song! It does a mind and body good! 😛Bring earplugs! 😜

Speak To The Lies To Renew Our Mind (Part 3)

This post was originally published on 15 June 2013 and updated on 10 November 2018.

Top of the day to our blessed afriendofjesus2013 friends! When I started this blog, I knew nothing about blogging or what to expect. I am humbled and grateful by the whole blogging experience. I just love The Lord! I am led by the Holy Spirit and enjoy a deep and personal relationship with Jesus! All of my postings are written from a “we” perspective because as Jesus changed my life, and my mind was renewed, my “I” became “we”. It is not my intention to offend or judge anybody by my way of expression.

Today, I am writing from both (I and We) perspectives. God put a message on my heart that we hope opens eyes and gives hope to someone to forgive and release all the stuff being carried to him (God). God is the only one who can heal every area within us and set us free to live and enjoy life. That freedom becomes a testimony of his love and what it can do! Praise God! God is the only one who can change and convict hearts.
20130615-060409.jpg

God gives us different ways to communicate. With the various ways, we can send out information, Facebook, Twitter, etc, our intent for the “Speak To The Lies To Renew Our Minds” was to give awareness that our thoughts and memories about ourselves can be lies or distorted. We all have stuff that we are working through. Again, we can be our own worst enemy.

The things we think about ourselves keep us oppressed, depressed or creates stress that is or can destroy us. These lies keep us paralyzed living with fear and doubt; anger and pride. These four are the big ones that unless we learn to speak to the stuff from the past, it holds us captive–dead bones walking. Jesus died to give us life! 2 Timothy 1:7 says “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”.

There are saved and unsaved people around us who can’t get their breakthrough or move forward because they don’t know how to address the issues they carry from the past.

Release it to God. He puts people in our life to help us grow. At a certain point in life, we have to stop blaming others and take responsibility to do something about moving on with life.

The message people never get is that God loves them, in spite of their stuff! Regardless of the past, or anything that they did. God is love! God’s love has no conditions. Our heart goes out to each and every person who is carrying stuff that God did not intend for them to carry!

The speak to the lies message was our way to shake things up and encourage someone to surrender their stuff to God.

God made us all different. So who are we to judge anybody. I love Matthew chapter 25. We forget that God loves. Since we are created in God’s image, who are we to judge anybody. Unfortunately, we all judge to a certain extent–especially when someone is different from us or does things different–but partly because we don’t know any better. Somewhere it became us versus them. People make the world go round. Again, we all bring something to the table.

Sometimes lets agree to disagree. Only a prideful person has something to prove, otherwise let it go! Remember they mocked and talked about Jesus, what makes us think they won’t mock and talk about us. How unfortunate, we can’t love and adapt to each other to get along. Until we can love like 1 Corinthians 13, we are still a work in progress.

Life in and of itself can be tough. Stuff happens but God is and always has been in charge. His will be done. Remember Romans 8:28.

When Jesus is our Lord and Savior, our thoughts and speech change. When Jesus is our Lord and Savior, we get a new heart! When Jesus is our Lord and Savior, we have the fruit of the spirit and are led by The Holy Spirit.

When Jesus is our Lord and Savior, we are rooted and grounded in love to love as Jesus loves–unconditionally regardless because love never fails.

When Jesus is our Lord and Savior, our minds are renewed by the Word of God to speak life into every aspect of our lives and our thoughts lean toward positive and kind ways to help and adapt to others.

When we are led by the Holy Spirit in every area of our lives, we don’t have to tell anyone anything, they will see by our actions and know by our fruit!

God will continue to prune and produce more fruit within us as we work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. When we are emotionally healthy, we become open and light, approachable– so full of love that people are drawn to us. God can make our enemies be at peace with us! Oh to be a child of God!

Let’s talk about love. Free will to choose. God loves us and gives us a choice to choose and love him. Relationships are failing because we put conditions on love. At the end of the day, love is a choice. Single or married, we are blessed if we know God loves us by choice!

God bless to our afriendofjesus2013 friends as we move forward together! Always A Friend

Proverbs 16:7 – When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Matthew 25:42-46 – For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

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.

1 Corinthians 13:3-13 (NKJV) – And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Philippians 2:12 – Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

An Open Letter To Those Who Doubt or Deny God

A friend helping out a friend. Please share via email, Facebook, twitter to anyone who doubts God. God bless you for your time!!

Speak To The Lies To Renew Our Mind (Part 2)

This post was originally published on 14 June 2013 and updated on 10 November 2018.

The renewing of our mind is a process! Each day, we speak life or death into our lives and situations. Each day, we can choose to replace a negative thought with a positive thought. But wait a minute, here is the catch–to replace our thoughts, something has to change.

Change starts with each of us. Change is always hard until we are ready and willing to take responsibility for our part of whatever keeps that negative thought alive. Which brings us to conflict.

Every relationship that involves people brings stuff–theirs and ours! Let’s face it, we all have a once upon a time or back in the day, blah, blah.

We made choices, right, wrong or indifferent. The challenge is owing our part of the choice and allowing God to set us free. Bad habits are hard to break. God knows what is needed to break each and everyone of us. Ouch.
20130613-234117.jpg
As I mentioned before, our past and present life experiences shape our memories, thoughts, perceptions and beliefs. Until we can accept each others choices and differences; we can’t be an effective witness for Christ. It will always come down to love.

God is love. If we say we love Jesus but hate our _________, well change is a process and it may take us longer to get where we need to be! When we stumble, we can thank God for his mercy and his grace!

No one is perfect, except Jesus. Pain, hurt and guilt, to include, forgiveness can all be released to God for healing. God loves us unconditionally; even when we are not kind and loving. He just waits until we choose him and the process to change begins again.

Other things we can use to renew our mind is music or paying a good strategy game–with either, the distraction keeps those pesky thoughts away. Try it, it helps!

God bless us by faith, as we release negative thoughts of the past, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, to renew our minds and set us free to keep moving forward.

Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Song of Solomon 2:15 – Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.

Matthew 12:25 – And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Matthew 25:42-46 – For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

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.

2 Corinthians 10:5 – Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Philippians 4:8 – Finally, breathen, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.

1 John 4:2 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Speak To The Lies To Renew Our Mind

This post was originally published on 13 June 2013 and updated on 10 November 2018.

Hello friends. (smile) At some point, we all go through a season of troubling thoughts. We must learn to speak the Word of God to the lies to renew our mind.

Memories and thoughts. Truth and lies. Negative and positive. Light and dark. Our past and present life experiences shape our memories and thoughts, to include our perception of ourselves and what we believe in.

This could also be called baggage. We reinforce these things within us on a regular basis. There are times we can recall every negative event and word spoken, and dwell on it again and again until we become so agitated our flesh man rises…and it’s not pretty.

We can’t move forward, we just become stuck! We can be our own worst enemy!
20130612-222116.jpg
Some of our memories and thoughts keep one or more of the following traits in our life: fear, anger, resentment, bitterness, pride, self-centeredness, stubbornness, need to control, perfectionist, critical and/or judgmental, or filled in the ___________.

None of these are spiritual traits and all of these will keep us from complete surrender to God and living a peaceful spirit led life and having the fruit of the spirit–love (giving), joy (gladness), peace (free from worry and fear), long suffering (patience), gentleness (kindness), goodness (generosity), faith (dependability), meekness (gentleness) and temperance (self-control) within us. Let’s not grieve the Holy Spirit.

Any memory or thought that is negative or dark, and does not align to the Word of God is a lie and we need to speak the truth to it. As we replace lies with truth, our mind gets renewed which changes our thoughts which changes our actions which changes what we think about ourselves and our beliefs.

Learning to love ourselves, flaws and all is the first step to speaking the truth to ourselves. God created us to be in relationships–with Him and each other. When he created us, he put a desire for him into us. Some of us have been running from him our whole lives. Only God can fill the void we feel inside us and heal hurts.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
~ Hosea 4:6 ~

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
~ 2 Timothy 3:16-17 ~

For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
~ Hebrews 4:12 ~

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.
~ Romans 12:2 ~

The past does not define who we’re are today unless we let it. Sometimes we have to let go of things and let God. In the name of Jesus, let’s speak to the lies! Times are tougher than ever. Thoughts are running amok! We must be honest and rip the band aids off. We must remove the mask and expose the lies we tell ourselves and others. Remember actions speak louder than words! (smile)

Sometimes, we seem to be in an instant gratification season. Some don’t take time to listen. Some don’t make time for God. Some are carrying stuff from the past that overwhelms those that love them. Some are carrying burdens that God never meant for them to carry. Some like to argue and control things that causes strife. Wrong thoughts are destructive and stifles growth and destroys people. The Word of God has a chapter and verse for any subject to equipped us to speak to the lies! (smile)

I welcome your thoughts . (smile)

Be Authentic, Be Kind, Be A Blessing

Awesome thought for today! Sometimes, we have to let go and let God fight our battles. God is and always will be in charge! God is the only one who can change and/or convict hearts! 😰

 

20130611-193923.jpg

So let’s walk by faith today because God blesses us as we move forward choosing to be authentic, kind and a blessing to others! And if we must, sing a song! 😜

Life Is About Love

Life is about love with no boundaries or conditions. Love starts with each of us. If we can’t love ourselves, it is impossible to love others. What’s sad is those who want love but don’t know how to give love or receive love because they don’t know God or that God loves them.

 

20130609-030352.jpg

Slowly read and ponder each line of 1 Corinthians 13:3-13 (NKJV):
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

God loves us regardless of what we can and cannot do. God loves us even when we disappoint him. His love has no have conditions.

To be continued….😰

God bless us as we keep moving forward loving ourselves and each other by faith! 😜

What We Got Here Is…

Hello, friends! We’re blessed to see the end of another week! Thank God! (smile)

Remember the movie Cool Hand Luke and the quote–“What we got here…is failure to communicate.” (smile) So let’s communicate! (smile)

Our message today is having the courage to communicate in our own way. After all, God make us different. We all bring something to the table! We should welcome and encourage each others communication styles. (nervous smile)

God can use anything or anyone for his purpose. Remember Romans 8:28 says “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”.
20130606-195327.jpg

We love The Lord! We each communicate our love for him in our own way. God is light and God is love. There is no darkness in him. Everyday, the way we communicate through our actions and speech, shows the fruit within us and how rooted and grounded we are in Christ.

Saved or unsaved, people watch us, to see how we handle situations, and how we talk to people, and our attitudes when circumstances are beyond our control. The choices we make in our communication style either draws people or repels them. Remember positive attracts positive. (smile)

When we know who we are and know our self worth in Christ, we display and communicate confidence that no one can shake! Praise the Lord. Love and need. Everybody wants to be loved and needed. When we love ourselves then we can love others. When we disclose our needs then our needs can be met.

When we can do all things through Christ which strengthens us then when we can count it all joy and walk through trials and tribulations (sometimes painfully) by faith because God provides for us daily. Thank you Lord!

How we communicate our lifestyle shows the level of our Christian walk and the likeness of Jesus to those looking at us looking at them. (smile)

Praise God, when we can communicate the free gift of salvation.
Praise God, when we can communicate he loves us unconditionally.
Praise God, when we can communicate we’re blessed and highly favored.
Praise God, when we can communicate in sharing the gospel.
Praise God, when we can communicate his protection and provision.
Praise God, when we can communicate enjoying a spirit led life.
Praise God, when we can communicate kindness and encouragement through difficult times.

It’s a beautiful thing to communicate in our own way. (smile) God did not create us to be robots and dead bones walking. (shock face)

Let us make time for fun. Let us make time to smile and laugh out loud. Let us make time to sing a sing. These things help us renew the mind and does a body good! (smile)

When our light shines, our communication is more open and honest, and people will be drawn to inquire about the God we serve! Now thats communication (cheesy smile)

Be blessed and continue to move forward communicating in your own unique way! (smile)

Slice of Heaven….

Today, may God’s will be done by crossing our paths with someone who needs what we have and someone who has what we need.

 

20130605-203344.jpg

God bless us as we continue to move forward. 😜

Check Our Motive

Let us check our motive about the words we choose to say at times. 😜

 

20130605-042729.jpg

Kindness is the next best thing we can offer each other as we grow to love unconditionally. Sometimes, we can choose not to make that comment, notice that flaw and assume the worst about someone. Kindness and unconditional love go together. 😜

Remember we are working to love like Jesus loves. 1 Corinthians 13:3-13 (NKJV) – 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

It always comes down to choices and our motives behind the choice! God bless us as we keep moving forward! 😜

 

How God Answers Prayers

Heartfelt prayers to God are powerful. Believing God will answer our prayers is powerful. When we pray for parents; spouse; children; friends; enemies; co-workers; neighbors; or anyone, from an open heart, (no grudges against anyone), God will always answer in his time giving what is needed. So let us pray for each other to release anything negative from our hearts!

20130601-214837.jpg

Prayer changes us! Oh, the possibilities of praying over each of our relationships and specific challenges around us. God is the only one, who can change us and the people and/or things we are praying about! This brings to mind how the fruit of long suffering comes into play, as well as patience! Remember free will to choose, sometimes the person we are praying about, to include us are not ready and God waits until the trip around the same mountain gets so old and tiresome that there is complete surrender to Him. God bless us as we keep moving forward. 😜

Living With No Regrets

Let us live life with no regrets! Each day that God wakes us up is a blessing! Each day that we focus on what is wrong in the world, and in each other, negates the blessing. Let us adapt and love one another by the grace of God since none of us know what the next second, minute or hour brings.

 

20130601-061128.jpg

Yes, there are challenges everywhere. Let us be specific in our prayers to God and have faith that He will move in mighty ways and show just how powerful He is! After all, Revelation 1:8 says “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith The Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty”.

Praise The Lord and God bless us as we keep moving forward! 😜
