Glory to God! This morning, I had tears of joy, as I prayed for God, to bless and move in each of your lives with the desires of your heart, for your blessing and choice, to follow, like, comment, reblog, retweet, share my posts, share my pictures with others! 😀 My cup runneth over!

Your support has encouraged and helped me, to keep moving forward, in growing this blog and finishing my book a reality! 😜 Glory to God!

Thanks and God bless you for your continued support as my friend! {hugs}

Always a friend

Faith Talk For Today and Everyday (Part 2)

Continuing from yesterday’s post–Faith Talk For Today and Everyday (Part 1), faith requires a genuine belief in God and belief in ourself. We all want change in something or someone. 😰 By faith, let each of us BE the change. 😜 We are blessed by the specific BE areas, with specific bible scriptures below, to help us change and evolve in our spiritual growth.

Everyday, God uses each of us, saved or unsaved to accomplish his will. We sow and God waters. Until we can adapt to one another, our actions speak louder than words. 😜 Sometimes, what we show and speak to others has a lasting impact. It will either draw or repel! Adapting is accepting, it is what it is, until it knows better. 😜 Adapting is enjoying life in spite of what others do. 😜 Adapting is having faith and hope that God will do what he spoke to your spirit!

God knows everything about each of us and loves us anyway! It always comes back to love. All of us want to be loved. God loves us! Saved or unsaved, we are loved! Until we understand God’s love has no conditions, that he loves us, baggage and all! 😜 We will search and search until we surrender to him. It’s a beautiful thing when we know and receive God’s love!

God bless us as we continue moving forward in our faith, to adapt and love one another as we become the person you created us to be. 😄

Thoughts or comments are always welcomed. 😜

Matthew 17:20 – And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

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.

Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”.

Hebrews 11:6 – 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 rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

You Say…, God Says….

Let us say what God says…

God bless us as we choose to speak positive words about ourselves while changing and moving forward! 😜

Today, I am Thankful….

20130417-025939.jpg

Today, Heavenly Father, each of us will comment on one thing, we are thankful for–we are thankful that You blessed us with another day to be a blessing to others while we move forward.

Be blessed and add your one thankful comment to ours 🙂

Let Go

Have faith to let go, and let God keep us moving forward.

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, brethren, 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.

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.

Be You

Be you because there is no one like you. God made us all unique. As we get older, we start to understand that things from the past (or people) can keep us from moving forward. We either don’t like this or that about ourselves; we worry, fret, stress, get angry all because someone said something about nothing. Sometimes we try to be like someone else, which is not being who we were created to be.

As God is pruning us, (we feel like we’re somewhere in the wilderness doing time) He is molding and shaping as the fruits of the spirit–love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, and faith become part of us. During the wilderness time, we come to understand the fruit known as long suffering while learning to count it all joy when there are trials and tribulations that helps us grow.

When we know the Word of God for ourselves, deepen our personal relationship with Him, God opens our hearts and eyes to see and love like His Son, Jesus. It’s a beautiful thing when we walk through the season of change and we can embrace all the attributes that make us who we are in Christ. When we know who we are, its easier to let things go and let God. God is the only one that can open eyes to see the truth.

So let us “be” the women and men, God created us to be 🙂 Wahoo, we look good for a Monday 🙂

Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

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

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.

Know

It’s a beautiful thing to know we are loved by Jesus unconditionally 🙂

20130331-074607.jpg

There is freedom to just live our lives because He loves us unconditionally!

He is known by many names and they all loves us!

Keep moving forward knowing He loves you 🙂
