Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
~ Jeremiah 32:27 ~
Hello friends. Keeping the faith and praying as we weather the storm. I love the Book of Psalms. It provides comfort to dwell and abide in The Lord with faith and trust in him.
These days, almost everything spoken is negative.
Thank God for balancing life by raising up encouragers with the gift of faith. Thank you Lord.
Abundant blessings and keeping the faith as we weather the storm praying and meditating on his Word.

Hello friends and TGIF! (smile) Blessings as we remember we are loved unconditionally!
Thank God, that regardless of what is or isn’t in our life, at this moment, we can tell ourselves, God loves me and He never gives me more than I can bear. (smile)
He will never leave me nor forsake me and the joy of The Lord is my strength!
Oh, to be loved, by God, is a beautiful thing!
Praise God for blessing us with what we need! (smile)
As we mature, there comes a time when we need boundaries, to know when, to let go and love from a distance. Adapting and adjusting to trials and tribulation, and things and/or stuff requires being spirit led with fruit of the spirit as mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23.
Possessing 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 helps with trials and tribulations, and things and/or stuff.
Trials and tribulations, things and/or stuff happens. The test is how we react to it. There will always be something or someone testing us. It’s all part of life, change and growth. Many times, we forget to breathe and focus to stay spiritually calm. (wink) The flesh man rises.
Flesh man rising is where a warning should register but nope, we proceed anyway. Sometimes, we forget that we can choose to let stuff go. Too many distractions, coupled with hunger, tiredness, etc, fuels the challenging moment. We’re human and we all have a breaking point.
Again, thank God for his mercy and grace! None of us are immune from stumbling! (shock face) It’s all part of growing, maturing and producing more fruit within us.
Learning to let go frees us from thinking we have to do everything. We don’t!
Learning to let go means putting it at the foot of the cross. Let God!
Learning to let go keeps us with God’s peace. God is always in charge, regardless of what we see! Again, we must walk by faith trusting 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. (smile)
God bless us, by faith, as we let go of unnecessary stuff blocking our spiritual growth. Let thy will be done.
Please join us today, by faith, in praying for those in need of physical, emotional and mental healing.
Thank you and God bless you.
At the end of the day, it comes down to each individual and God. God sees all the things we do. God hears all the words we speak. Everything we do and say gives glory to God.
Remember God is not looking for perfection. God’s love has no conditions. Choose to smile and laugh more. Choose to enjoy life in spite of this and that. Choose to keep moving forward. 😜
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.
