The Power Of Words

The words we use tell what’s in our heart. 😰 The words we use tells our level of spiritual maturity. Got fruit? 😰

We are living in a time where words travel faster and can go viral quickly! Isn’t it amazing the things that grab our attention. 😨

We choose every time we communicate to draw or repel. We project a positive or negative attitude with our words.

God bless us as we learn to choose our words to build up, heal and encourage one another. 😊

Comments, thoughts, anyone? Anyone? 😉

Proverbs 8:6 – Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.

Proverbs 15:1 – A soft answer turn away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

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

Proverbs 21:23 – Whoso keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps his soul from troubles.

God Made Us Different

One sign of maturity is the ability to be comfortable with people who are not like us.

Ann - A Friend of Jesus 2013

Everyday that God blesses us with life is an opportunity to sow love and kindness to people around us. Especially those who are different. We all can relate to different. Sometimes different can balance us. Sometimes different makes us grow. Sometimes different is free will to choose. Sometimes different does not know any better. Sometimes different is lost. Sometimes different needs Jesus. Sometimes, we don’t know the journey of different.

Just because we are different does not mean we can’t learn something new from one another. We must learn to adapt to different and recognize that actions speak louder than words and our actions can lead different to Jesus.

Jeremiah 17:7-8, The Blessedness of Trusting The Lord

We are blessed when we put our faith, hope, and trust in The Lord! 😀

God bless us, as we remember, 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.

Thank you Lord, that your Word reminds us that you can bring about good from any situation.

Faith It and Roll With It Wednesday

Wahoo! It’s faith it and roll with it Wednesday! (big smile) Friends, there will always be something that God is changing within us. Faith it! (smile) There will always be someone trying something, roll with it. (smile) Sometimes, we must lighten up! (smile)

Hebrews 11:6, says “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarded of them that diligently seek him;” and Romans 10:17 says “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

Here’s the thing, we’re to have faith. Believe and seek God, with no doubting or wavering. Faith it! Learning to be positive, faith it! Adapting to things, we can’t change, roll with it! (smile)

Sometimes, standing on faith for _________, can take awhile for the manifestation, faith it and roll with it! (smile) Sometimes, x, y or z, continues, roll with it! (smile) Patience, faith it! Work drama, roll with it! Kindness, faith it! Heavy traffic, roll with it! (small smile)

Quit using emoticons and type (smile), roll with it! (smile, wink, stick tongue out)

Finding ways to stay positive during challenges will gain experience and provide another way to handle something or someone! (really big smile)

Faith it and roll with it are little methods to help walk through the thing or adjust to the someone. (smile) Sometimes, singing or listening to a favorite song helps, as well as, smiling and laughter. (big smile) God is always in charge and His will be done!

God bless us as we faith it and roll with it today! (smile) We look marvelous! Faith it and roll with it!

A Mother Theresa Story

Be blessed reading A Mother Theresa Story 😊

Morning Story and Dilbert

A successful businessman traveled to India to spend a month working in one of Mother Teresa’s shelters. He longed to meet the tiny nun, but Mother Teresa was traveling, and it wasn’t until the day before his departure that he received an audience. When he was finally in her presence, much to his surprise, he burst into tears. All the times when he’d been self-centered, busy or focused on his own gain flashed before his eyes, and he felt an enormous sadness that he had missed so many opportunities in his life to give of himself and his resources. Without a word, Mother Teresa walked over to where he was seated, put her hands on his shoulders and looked deeply into his eyes. “Don’t you know,” she said, “that God knows you are doing the best that you can.”
