WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT!!

20180713_075108_0001.png

Thankful for everyone who has let us know you are enjoying our Facebook blog, page, and/or groups!! Only yesterday, while at a dental appointment a staff member shared that she and her spouse were so encouraged by and enjoying our group. Many have shared with us that although you may not comment publicly that you are an active reader. That’s awesome to know!! We also greatly appreciate those who are active participants. We love, love, love hearing from you!! ❤

It means a lot when others in the community and online share how they have been encouraged or blessed with a right now word. Here’s the best part to me, many of our posts are written and scheduled weeks in advance, but God knows exactly what we need individually and collectively and exactly when we need it!! I love that, and give God all the glory and praise!!

This started out as just an idea on my heart that lingered to start a blog, than a page, and now two groups. It’s a blessing to see the growth and the support. We look forward to seeing what else lies ahead in the future!! The funny part is every time we think about taking a break for a while, others have encouraged us repeatedly to keep sharing so we will until God says otherwise. Be blessed on today, and thanks so much for your support!! 🙂

Something To Think About…

20180713_065422_0001

The word of God is for our example and our guidance. Here are a few points to consider from the following passages. What do these passages speak to you? Share in the comments below.

1. Those who were assigned to the work were handpicked and chosen by God.

2. The workers were given the necessary wisdom and understanding to carry out their assignment from God.

3. The congregation gave freely and bountifully towards the work. The offerings were sufficient and even too much. There was enough with no lack. There was overflow!

4. The man of God commanded the congregation to not bring anything further once he was informed of how much had already been given. He received only what was necessary to complete the work of the Lord, and did not try to rob or profit from the people for his own gain or in the name of the Lord as they carried out the assignment from God.

Exodus 35:31

31 And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

Exodus 36:1

36 Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the Lord put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the Lord had commanded.

Exodus 36:3-7

3 And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.

4 And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;

5 And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the Lord commanded to make.

6 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing.

7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.

I SHALL COME FORTH!!!

Remember this! The devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy! When the enemy of your soul speaks to your mind and says… It’s too much. You can’t handle this. Just give up. Just quit. You’re not going to make it through this. It’s a lie from the pits of hell!! ⚠️⚠️

You better turn to that devil, and announce…

I may feel weak right now, but My God is STRONG and MIGHTY!

God can handle THIS!! Nothing is impossible though Him!!

It’s NOT OVER until God says so! His timing is perfect!

I can do ALL THINGS through Christ Jesus who STRENGTHENS ME!

My God is ABLE TO DO EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY MORE THAN I could ever ask or think!

Everyone will not receive you, neither did they receive Christ.

Everyone will not understand you and the words that you speak, neither did they understand the parables that were spoken by Jesus himself.

Everyone may not judge you fairly and with kindness, but they entreated the Savior the same.

Everyone will not understand your actions, but move as the Spirit of God leads you and according to His timing anyway.

God knows exactly who He is reaching for in this season, and what must be accomplished in this last day and hour.

Trust Him!! Seek after Him!!

Your Story Matters!!

If you love fantasies Facebook is definitely the place for you, but real life is not always sunshine, roses, and happily ever after. Real life includes real storms, struggles, and battles to hang in there until your change comes. The reason I share personal struggles or issues at times is because someone else might be going through too, but believing the lie that they are the only one. They might be on the verge of quitting, giving up, and throwing in the towel. I don’t want that for anybody! Somebody might need that word of encouragement that “Hey, you’ve got this. We’ve got this!! Some how and some way, we will survive!!”

Too often people are afraid of transparency. Some because they just don’t care. Some because they are uncomfortable. Some because they don’t want to face their own shortcomings. Some because they believe if you don’t tell than it never happened. Some because they would rather believe and strive to live a lie. Some because they are concerned they will have to get involved with their time or resources. Is it even too much to simply pray without judgement for that “friend” in need?

Obviously, there is a time and place for everything. Social media is not always that place. We must pray for wisdom, and walk in the spirit. The posts I share at times is not for everyone, and probably even most, and THAT’S OKAY. However, if it only reaches the one that God knows is waiting for a right now word of encouragement than IT IS ENOUGH!! Every time someone lets me know a post I shared encouraged them or spoke to them I am reminded that God knows best, and my desire is always to please Him and not the crowds.

The bible says the good shepherd leaves the rest of the sheep to find the one. It’s bible. That one soul matters!! So with all that being said. Share your story. Be real. Use wisdom. Do it for the right reason, and not for attention or sympathy. Tell others the way to keep standing and how to find the way out through the Word of God, just like you did. Your testimony can breathe life into a dead situation, so share it! Somebody is waiting on you!!
