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)

Go 24 Hours Without Complaining

Thank God for his mercy and his grace! How was your day? I was challenged today. 😰 I blinked, lost my focus, and got frustrated. Then I tried explaining, well it was more like complaining, ever rile yourself up until you hear your flesh man tell your spirit man, “hold up, I got this?” 😜

Let’s just say, today was priceless! I believe God has a sense of humor! 😃 Of all the Pinterest pins, this one caught my eye! 😜 I am still laughing that I just had to share. 😜

So, how was your day! 😜

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)

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.

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! 😜

Things happen

Everyday things happen. Some “things” can make life interesting depending on our perspective. Free will to choose can make us or break us. We have to take responsibility for our choices and keep moving forward.

God can use anything or anyone to help us grow. We never know who is watching us to see how we handle things.

Keep moving forward, God is in charge and He has what we need. 🙂

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.
