Matthew 5:9 New International Version (NIV)Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
I CHOOSE PEACE ~
How about you?
God has a way to rescue us in life. We get ourselves in situations in life and there is a way out. Choosing to put God first, brings about a life change. The change begins in your mind and keep your mind stayed on how he would handle things. Handing things with peace is a choice and I have seen this time after time. People jump on being angry at times and if we could only stop to think first. There are consequences to our wrong choice in this life. Taking responsibility is important and allowing God to rescue you happens.
Psalm 72:12-14New International Version (NIV)
12 For he will deliver the needy who cry out,
the afflicted who have no one to help.
13 He will take pity on the weak and the needy
and save the needy from death.
14 He will rescue them from oppression and violence,
for precious is their blood in his sight.
PEACE ~ RESCUE
I remember being in Cabo and it was the second day. A calm day and a walk upon the sand by the water. A big wave came up and drew us into the waters. A long story short is this, Jesus rescued us from the water and I surrender my life to him that day. I said I would teach and do what he has called me to do "IF" I had another chance. Wow I had another chance and I've been teaching since 2004. I have surrendered my life, my thoughts, my plans, my wants and my desires to him. Since that time, I have become a grandmother, a mentor to others and I work on me daily. I believe that living for God allows us freedom and our lives become an example to others.
Years ago, people would say this, "what would Jesus do?" We don't talk about that statement much anymore but if we could only focus on that before we speak. If we could only focus on that before we react. Wow, I always listen to myself as I type this out for you. My life changed the day I let go of what I could not change in my life. I don't mean we must settle, but there are some things we just can change. Living our lives to fullest is so important. If you feel like your missing something in your life, pray. I have found that prayer took me to this moment of life and surrounded by others who care.
I write this blog because I care about you. You being the reader of my blog and I might not know who reads this. God knows and he wants to rescue you from yourself. Putting peace inside your heart, mind and soul. Living in a land of freedom inside your mind. Some days, we just need to start a day over. Giving God thanks for all the things we already have in life. Maybe you are in a greater place, but you can be light in someone's life today. Share hope, love and peace with others.
Today marks my son's birthday. He was only 2 years old when the doctors said he had about 3 days to live. A muscle illness that was closing off his windpipe and so much more. I started praying and called everyone I knew who could pray. We now celebrate 34 years of this young man, he has two beautiful children and is engaged to be married. We are off to a Giants Game and my heart is looking at what God did for him. He reminds me of the scripture Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, A promise and A future. Wow thank you God. My my daughter, her husband and boys will join us. A family event and my heart is so happy.
Purpose this a good day! My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Saying yes to God brings so much joy and peace. Going through life together and sharing hope with someone. I care about you, your family and friends.
