I Have Not Lost Faith

Daily struggle  is not a pleasant thing. Struggle can mean facing a diialysis machine every three days to empty your system out because your kidneys are failing. Struggling could mean sitting in a classroom and everyone around you gets it and you have questions. Struggling could mean you have been looking and looking and haven't found a job yet.  Struggle can mean many things to many people. This is when our faith is tested to the highest degree. Many many say well why would your God do this to you? To that, the answer is to learn what it is to be humble. Blessings come in many forms. We have to trust and believe.

Betrayal

Betrayal is a very strong emotional appendage. It is the ultimate let down. Imagine through out your adult life walking from town to town, teaching. Living with threats. Constantly explaining the right way to God, and that right way was a privilege for everyone not just a chosen few. Going up against more then hostile crowds at times. Heck challanged out right from the devil himself. All to end because of betrayal. Such a hurting pain. Jesus endured it all. Which leads one to think and fast forward to today. When betrayal takes place, after one has put their complete trust in another how does one handle that? 
FORGIVE! 

Luke 12: 51-53
Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

Isaiah 53:12

Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.


Romans 5:6

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.

Cast Your Bread Upon The Waters


Ecclesiastes 11
Cast your bread upon the waters,
For you will find it after many days.
Give a serving to seven, and also to eight,
For you do not know what evil will be on the earth.
If the clouds are full of rain,
They empty themselves upon the earth;
And if a tree falls to the south or the north,
In the place where the tree falls, there it shall lie.
He who observes the wind will not sow,
And he who regards the clouds will not reap.
As you do not know what is the way of the wind,
Or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child,
So you do not know the works of God who makes everything.
In the morning sow your seed,
And in the evening do not withhold your hand;
For you do not know which will prosper,
Either this or that,
Or whether both alike will be good.
Truly the light is sweet,
And it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun;
But if a man lives many years
And rejoices in them all,
Yet let him remember the days of darkness,
For they will be many.
All that is coming is vanity.
Rejoice, O young man, in your youth,
And let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth;
Walk in the ways of your heart,
And in the sight of your eyes;
But know that for all these
God will bring you into judgment.
Therefore remove sorrow from your heart,
And put away evil from your flesh,
For childhood and youth are vanity

We Are Creatures Of Habit

Except when it comes to faith. And thanking God. There are exceptions of course, and yes people worship weekly. How often does one say thank you God for small favor. Every time something good happens. That should be a natural. It's hard to imagine walking this earth without God daily. 

Deuteronomy 31:8

And the Lord, He it is who doth go before thee. He will be with thee, He will not fail thee, neither forsake thee. Fear not, neither be dismayed.”

Do You Love Me?

God may ask that very question. In fact he has. Throughout the bible this simple question was posed to many a generation. The answer was so vague to many. Why is that? God simply wanted acknowledgement that he existed. And that we were thankful for what he provided. Oh but in comes the enemy. Spreading doubt and deciet. What was the almighty to do? God was perplexed. Then with much thought he made a decision. He sent Jesus Christ to live life as a man. To endure the pain and agony man has to live through. To offer him as the sacraficial lamb to save mankind. Ultimately the answer to the question. Do you love me? Gods answer, why yes, yes I do.

A Little Down Time Cannot Hurt

We go through life at such a fast pace sometime, we miss a blessing here or there. When this happens it is time to slow down. Take it easy. There is nothing more important then living, loving and nourishing. God does it all of the time. God is never in a hurry. Take time out of your life to appreciate what you have. And what you are working on getting.

Living In The Now As Opposed To The Past

There are things in this life that are meant to be treasured. Good memories are part of that process. We tend to want to hold on to things, keeping us tied to the past. We must exercise realty. That was then, this is now. Life has moved on. You can make a comparison to the way God treats each and everyone of his children. God does not dwell on the past. He forgives and moves on. He never leaves us or forsakes us. He is mighty. Yes, we should take it from our almighty. The past is the past.

In Times Of Stress & Strain

In times of stress and strain. Call on the one most nearest and dearest to your heart. Avoid confusion. Man has a way of disappointing everyone at one time or another. It is when you repent of your sins. Ask for forgiveness. Know that we have a way to show God our hearts. And that through Jesus Christ we can do anything.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5 NIV

Spiritial Well Being

Whoa to the fiery darts,that come in the form of that snake at work. Or that bear that lives next door. Or the wolve that cuts you off on your way to work. Yep! those fiery darts are crazy distractions. We must remain vigilent in our faith. It is when we do not succumb and get sucked into a sinking hole with these people that we sustain. It is when we call on God and his mighty army that victory is sweet.

We May Never Know Why

When things happen in life we wonder sometimes why did it happen this way. Not realizing that everything happens for a reason. We cannot always think the very worst of it all. As harsh as it may seem we have to come up for air and use the voice of wisdom. Go to God in prayer. Meditate on the word. Instead of asking yourself Why? Ask Why Not?

Tools In Our Tool Belts

How many understand that all we need to get through life is a culmination of the experiences we have lived? That in each experience God has provided a lesson. Some experiences are grand, good and pleasing. Other times we feel harshness, abandonment, saddness. They are all lessons. What we have to do is discern, know that God is for us. Its very hard for many to take the "why me" out of the equation. But we have to remember the lesson learned today may be compiling for future experiences.  God wants the best, but we have to learn along the way, what ever it is that we should take from that experience.

Philipians 4:12-13

 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need.  I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Sometimes We Need A Fire Storm

It was nothing for whole cities to be destroyed by fire and brimstone. The bible accounts for many a story of these very things happening. As we see our world today there are many accounts of destruction mostly manmade however "nature" takes on a few mighty diasters. We as God's people need to remain steadfast in our prayers. We need to prepare as much as possible for a "rainy day". Love our families unconditonally. God knows our hearts. Keep them open.

The Dark As Opposed To The Light Which Would You Choose?

We can wonder through life not knowing where we are going. Living vicariously through someone else. Or living mechanically without a soul. Or we can chose to live as God intended us to live. Having  Faith in him to see us through the good and bad times. Living in the darkness leave many lost without an inkling of what life is about. It is sad, it is destructive and without fear of The Lord.

Wisdom Will Not Enter A Deceitful Soul

The book of the wise King. The wisdom of Solomon gives us an insight on the rules if you will, of leadership, wisdom and understanding. Following the righteous path that God wants all to follow. Unfortunately man has been his own enemy back then as he is now. When leaders are put in place to forge forward for the people and by the people it is a happy combination. But when greed, dishonor, lets just say any and all of the seven sins are involved it is a disaster. A train wreck ready to happen. If we use the bible as a reference manual, it gives us direction on what to do in these desperate times. God has prevailed all of these years. Man has not been wiped completely out yet. Believe me science has nothing on God. So believe that this too shall pass. Do your very best to survive in the humblest way. In the end the disobedient. The sinners. Will be looking to the humble man for direction. 

The Wisdom of Solomon 1:12-16

Seek not death in the error of your life: and pull not upon yourselves destruction with the works of your hands.

13 For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living.

14 For he created all things, that they might have their being: and the generations of the world were healthful; and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor the kingdom of death upon the earth:

15 (For righteousness is immortal:)

16 But ungodly men with their works and words called it to them: for when they thought to have it their friend, they consumed to nought, and made a covenant with it, because they are worthy to take part with it.

Making The Difference

It does not take much to make someones day. Humility and humbleness do not have a pricetag on them. A simple word. A hug. An ear to simply listen, can make all the difference in the world. There are times when one simply needs someone to hear them. Not solve anything for them. Just acknowledge that they mean something. Giving of oneself is rare these days. It is possible but takes effort not many want to give up.

JOHN 16:23-24

 In that day you will not question Me about anything. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you. Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full.

To Everything There Seems To Be An Instant Remedy

Davids adventures in the Bible began when he was a young man. He hearded sheep. He killed a giant. He played the flute and harp. He was a popular guy in his town. He was accused of stealing the peoples hearts and consequently chased for years by a jealous king. He commited adultry. He had a rapist son. He had a murderous son. He himself had a man killed for his wife. All of this was one man's life in a nut shell. The underlying fact of the matter is, God saw all of this. God heard Davids cries for mercy, and forgiveness. God knew Davids heart. Born out of these seemingly tragic things in a chosen one's life was one of the wisest Kings in history to date. Solomon. The rest is history. The simularities of this family, is so close to many families of today. God is still in the same business, of teaching, forgiving and showing mercy.

I Corinthians 10:13

13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

We Have To Remember Who Our God Is And What He Can Do

 Ephesians 3:20 God can do anything, you know - far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. 

It is so easy to doubt. So easy to dismiss. So easy to take over. We need to remember that God wants us to trust him. He knows more about us then we know of our selves. Man is very predictable.

Psalm 3:2-6  Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." "Selah" But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah" I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.

The Most Powerful Thing You Can Say

The most powerful thing to say to anyone is I love you unconditionally. God did it long ago. It is the people who turned their backs on God. This hurt God so. He had to send Jesus to intercede.

Tearing Down Those Walls

How many times have you ran into an obstacle? How many times have you avoided it(the obstacle)? Went around it? Went over it? Went under it? Think about the mighty armies back in the day that had to face the giant Philistines. An unruly bunch. Very hard to defeat. Most knew when they went into battle with them, there would definitely be casualties. Imagine fighting them at their whim. Because you did not have any advantages. It seemed a lost battle always. Until Gods chosen son came along. David had God on his side and was able to slay the bully of the bunch with a sling shot and a smooth stone. This was not avoidance. Nor was it going around or under and over. It was absolute confrontation. Without fear. David did what mighty armies could not do. The reason you ask?: He had God on his side. God can move mountains. Slay your biggest enemy. All you have to do is call on him. And remember God does not work on man's time. He works on Gods time.

All We Have To Do Is Wait On The Lord

Waiting is most likely the hardest thing a human being has to do. Patience is not something that comes natural. We who walk in the light. We who know God, struggle too. It is always safe to say God's time is not our time. If we do not adhere to that we find ourselves in trouble.

It Must Be Difficult To Live Amongst Non-Believers

There are so many that walk amongst the saved who are not saved. These are the ones who rely on science. They rely on each other. The see nothing but what they know or what another tells them. The belief system that should be in place is not. They seek advise from the star gazers, the scienctist, the books, the doctors everybody but God. The spirit is a wonderful thing once released back to God. He is the protector of ones spirit if asked to do so. Those that know God. Know his ability and his power, should simply pray for those that don't.You can ask God to help open their eyes. That they may see the abundance of God and the glory that he can beset upon anyone who ask. And anyone who has faith.

John 10 :11-19 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13 He flees because he is a hired hand andcares nothing for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And I have other sheep that are not of this fold.I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. 17 For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.”

19 There was again a division among the Jews because of these words.

Rising To The Rhythm Of Life

Many people continue to get caught up in the wordly ways. To no fault of their own. It boils down to faith, belief, knowing who God is and what he can do. If there is a weakness in any of these areas. Many are subject to the enemy and they fall prey. Our spirits must remain as strong as we can make them. However, we cannot do it on our own. We have to call on God. This fight is real. It is constant. And relentless.

God You Are My Hiding Place

King David's documentation of his life's ups and downs are so well versed in the Psalms it is uncanny. If you review David as a boy, his wisdom was profound and definitely sent from God. As he grew older he ran into some very human difficulty. Psalms 31 is a reflection of a bad day. For that matter many a bad day.

Psalm 31

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
    let me never be put to shame;
    deliver me in your righteousness.
Turn your ear to me,
    come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
    a strong fortress to save me.
Since you are my rock and my fortress,
    for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
Keep me free from the trap that is set for me,
    for you are my refuge.
Into your hands I commit my spirit;
    deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.
I hate those who cling to worthless idols;
    as for me, I trust in the Lord.
I will be glad and rejoice in your love,
    for you saw my affliction
    and knew the anguish of my soul.
You have not given me into the hands of the enemy
    but have set my feet in a spacious place.
Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress;
    my eyes grow weak with sorrow,
    my soul and body with grief.
My life is consumed by anguish
    and my years by groaning;
my strength fails because of my affliction,
    and my bones grow weak.
Because of all my enemies,
    I am the utter contempt of my neighbors
and an object of dread to my closest friends—
    those who see me on the street flee from me.
I am forgotten as though I were dead;
    I have become like broken pottery.
For I hear many whispering,
    “Terror on every side!”
They conspire against me
    and plot to take my life.
But I trust in you, Lord;
    I say, “You are my God.”
My times are in your hands;
    deliver me from the hands of my enemies,
    from those who pursue me.
Let your face shine on your servant;
    save me in your unfailing love.
Let me not be put to shame, Lord,
    for I have cried out to you;
but let the wicked be put to shame
    and be silent in the realm of the dead.
Let their lying lips be silenced,
    for with pride and contempt
    they speak arrogantly against the righteous.
How abundant are the good things
    that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all,
    on those who take refuge in you.
In the shelter of your presence you hide them
    from all human intrigues;
you keep them safe in your dwelling
    from accusing tongues.
Praise be to the Lord,
    for he showed me the wonders of his love
    when I was in a city under siege.
In my alarm I said,
    “I am cut off from your sight!”
Yet you heard my cry for mercy
    when I called to you for help.
Love the Lord, all his faithful people!
    The Lord preserves those who are true to him,
    but the proud he pays back in full.
Be strong and take heart,
    all you who hope in the Lord






Having a bad day

God Lives Within Us If We Let Him

Whoa, to follow the guidelines that God laid down for us, is it possible?Yes, it is. As hard as it may seem there is saving grace for the mistakes and errors we make in trying to do so. Jesus! He was and is our salvation. Through him our souls are saved. It is as simple as that.

You Cannot Dwell In The Past

The best thing we can do with the past is take the good from it. The memories that are treasured. Some have more then others(good memories). Some have less then others. The next best thing to do is take lessons. Use the experiences to avoid doing. To avoid the pitfalls. Know in your heart you are not guilty of anything but not knowing what and how to alleviate the pain or displeasure. And finally forgive. Ask God for all the strength to do so. Sometimes it takes more then we can handle or so it seems. It can be done. When that is achieved. Life moves on. Once past the road block, God opens doors. Blessings flow.

It Is Written For A Reason

The bible is a written history and lesson book. We can look at some of the things done in that period and match them to the period in which we live. It is the knowledge that we share that helps mankind understand God's intention for us. The bible gives us instances when man is tempted, man suffers. Men and women are changed for the greater good. The bible has accounts for all the above. What we must remember is if it happened back then, it can definitely happen again. Can we be the wiser for knowing? Yes, we can.

Let By Gone's Be By Gones

Another year has passed. Hopefully we all recieved a little joy, peace and happiness during this last year. It is time to forge through this coming year. We can make all of the resolutions and promises but unless it is in our heart to do so, it is all empty air. Have faith in yourself. Above all have faith in God.
