A Lamp on a Stand
16 “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.18 Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.”

Listen to what God is saying to you.
I recently got hurt over something. I thought about it a lot and it troubled my soul that I was troubled. I began to pray and ask God for help. What I do in life isn't about what I get back, but what I give. I give my whole heart in helping others and doing my best according to the word of God (Bible). I am not perfect for sure. Prayer truly changes you inside and that shows outside. We are human and there will be times that we might get hurt but make sure you get through it quickly.
PROVERBS 4:23 (NIV)
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Let me remind you that the devil is real and goes about to divide you in different ways. If he can stop you from doing what's right, he will. If he can stop you from pursuing your dreams, he will. Why listen to him anyway? Stop him in his tracks and remind him that he can only lie. He is a thief and wants us to destroy the plans God has for our lives.
John 10:10 New International Version (NIV)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

JESUS LOVES ME
I have life and I am happy to share it daily on this blog. God is good all the time and all the time, God is good! Each of us face different things daily and our attitude of praise must come alive. This season is called the Holiday season some and Christmas season to others. Christmas being about God and his love to each of us. I find this season one to think about family and friendships. Not the fact that we must get together with people who trouble us or hurt us. We are to be a light in this dark world at times. Maybe you are the only Jesus someone might see in life. Think about that for a moment!
Do you hear what I hear? A true love that only God can give and a peace beyond a human understanding. Yes, through it all we can share real life with others, walk by faith and stay prayerful over our family and friends. It's your prayers that make a difference and mine too. Praying moves God in ways that seems unreal but becomes real. God is still a miracle worker, a promise keeper and guiding our lives if we let him. Purpose this a good day and share hope with others. You have been given another day of life and use it the best you can. There is no time to waste to be happy and cheerful in all seasons of life.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
