Life

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
~ John 10:9-11 ~

Life lives, life dies. Life laughs, life cries. Life gives up and life tries. But life looks different through everyone’s eyes.

Hello friends. (smile) Sorry, I’m late in posting today. Took some extra time enjoying my clean house and staying unplugged. I had a great day reflecting! Praise The Lord.

How about you, how was your day? Anything, you,want to share? (smile)

Sometimes, to sit and reflect on life, where we were versus where we are now can be an interesting walk down memory lane. Sometimes, to remember the struggles and how God walked us through warms the heart and a shout out “Thank you, Lord.”

It’s a beautiful thing to share our life experiences because as the quote above says “life looks different through everyone’s eyes”. I thank God for the courage to share my life experiences that, by faith, can help someone. (smile)

God is light. God is love. There is nothing dark about Him. No one or nothing is more powerful than Him. Here’s wisdom, thoughts of a negative nature, anger, doubt are not of God. Must have faith.

I see living an abundant life as peace and contentment because we make better choices by picking up our cross and following Him. He also provides for all our needs.

It’s about faith and asking with a right motive.

Friends, my encouragement today is to stand on faith and trust that we are where God wants us to be until He manifests our next step.

Abundant blessings and sleep well tonight!

As always, your thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Morning Story and Dilbert

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be – a roommate, a neighbor, a professor, a friend, a lover, or even a complete stranger – but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.

Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever…

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”.

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)
