Faith Through The Ebbs and Flows

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
~ Jeremiah 32:27 ~

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
~ Unknown Author ~

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

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well in your world. I’m balanced and back to writing. (wink)

Taking a few extra days away from the circus. Wahoo, something to do. All is well in my world. Praise The Lord. (smile)

How deep is your faith when ebbs and flows come?

Too many times, we forget just how faithful God is. Life brings ebbs and flows; there is no avoiding it.

Faith is powerful when aligned with the will of God.It’s a beautiful thing to know yourself and just keep the faith walking through the ebbs and flows in life.

It’s a beautiful thing when you know who you are in Christ.

It’s a beautiful thing when your faith is in God.

It’s a beautiful thing when you know the power of speaking God’s Word over any situation.

Is there anything too hard for God?

It’s a beautiful thing to know rhetoric when you hear it.

It’s a beautiful thing to know love unconditionally and recognize loves never fails.

It’s a beautiful thing to be content until God brings the manifestation. Thank you Lord.

It’s a beautiful thing to let go of anything or anyone that disturbs the peace within us.

It’s a beautiful thing to be grateful.

Grateful for life.

Grateful for family and friends.

Grateful for answered prayers and God’s protection.

Blessings, my friends, as we just keep the faith through the ebbs and flows in life.

T is for…

As you start and end your day, say ‘thank you’ for every little thing in your life. And you will come to realize how blessed you truly are.

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.
~ Romans8:28~

Hello friends. (smile) Today, was kids day at the circus. Stayed home and enjoyed a noise free day. Praise The Lord. All is well in my world. Am a little distracted and just keeping the faith to finish the A to Z challenge.

Thank you for supporting my blogging effort. This is the longest stretch of posting since last year. Again, Praise The Lord.

Having a thankful attitude helps to see how really blessed we are, as well as, knowing how God works all things out.

Blessings, my friends, to just keep the faith and enjoy the U to Z challenge! (smile)

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?
