Have a wonderful day!! I woke up early this morning to birds chirping and then the rain. So relaxing!! Even in the midst of the storms of life there is beauty and a God given peace for His people. I am so thankful! Enjoy!!

Reminder for those who are struggling…

Psalm 23

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

WALK IT OUT

It’s funny, but not really, when people say “don’t judge me”. Hello, people wake up before it’s too late! Sin is sin. Right is right. Wrong is wrong. Gossiping is sin. Backbiting is sin. Fornication , murder, adultery, theft, homosexuality, etc. is sin. Don’t get an attittude with others who are trying to help you so that YOUR soul won’t be lost if they tell you the word of God on a subject. It is written… Enough said. No arguments. No belittling. No excuses. No casting stones. It is not our place to enforce punishment, but simply to warn. It is written… By the way, to judge is to evaluate and determine that someone is going to heaven or hell. That my friend, is between you and God. He alone knows your standing with Him. He alone knows your motives and your heart. He alone knows the beginning from the end. However, we must ALL strive daily to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling, and still care enough about those around us to sound the alarm if it appears someone is headed the wrong way. That’s called love. That’s called being our brother (or sisters) keeper. It’s up to the listener to hear and obey or choose to go another way. The choice is yours. The choice is mine, but in the end we each will receive a just reward for those choices. Let’s choose wisely, and serve the Lord with fear and gladness! Sin leads to death, but praise God for knowing there is a way of escape for each of us. Jesus! What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

STAND ON THE WORD

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Proverbs 28:4

4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.

Ezekiel 3:19

19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

Jeremiah 6:16-19

16 Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.

18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.

19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.

WALK IT OUT

In this life I’ve had to endure heartaches, pain, loss, disappointments, sickness, betrayals a plenty. However, as I look back and see all God’s brought me through I realize those things I thought were sent to tear me down were actually building me up for such a time as this!! I’m wiser. I’m stronger. To God be the glory!! Somebody shout, “Hallelujah”, and give God the praise!!

STAND ON THE WORD

Romans 8:28

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.
