*Direction us from left to right.
*Caution us of dangers ahead.
*Guide us with words written.
*People are signs in our lives.
John 4:48 (NLT)
Jesus asked, "Will you never believe in me unless you see miraculous signs and wonders?"
The Bible is our roadmap to Heaven. So many things we can do within it and so many things we can not do within it. God has planned a long time ago for us to see the signs placed before us. Knowing that life is filled with rights and wrongs, but keeping your mindset on purpose.
Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)
A Living SacrificeTherefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
I SEE THE SIGN ~
Jesus loves me and he gives me opportunities to think upon things that are true.
Philippians 4:8 (KJV)
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Proverbs 4:27 (NIV)
Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.
Have you ever read a sign wrong and ended up where you shouldn't be? I have and it's a scary feeling being lost. There is another way out of this and I must find it. Maybe you need to turn around and check your directions again. Signs are important in our lives. God warns us through signs of knowing to do what is right and staying away from what is wrong.
In somedays, we just want to hear that somebody hears us. Maybe it isn't a sign on the wall, street or warning at all. Maybe it's just your voice and your want it heard. When I talk to people, I make sure I listen. I not only listen to the words they speak, but the signs that are behind their words. When someone days they are okay, but you see those tears in their eyes, it's a sign. I heard it said that action speaks louder than words, so I watch actions of others. What is inside your heart often comes out when someone listens.
This a huge sign to you (reader of my blog) who reads this. I truly care about people and I know that one life makes such a difference. I've given you a few scriptures to hold onto today, but he greatest is John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son.
God knew that we would need forgiveness of sins, God knew that we would need people in our lives and God knew that this page would bring us together. I don't claim to know everything, but I enough that Jesus loves me and you. I've been through struggles, heartbreak and got back up again. I learned to forgive myself and not live in a land of regret. It's a new day and new options. I choose Jesus everyday of my life and I care greatly about you!
KNOW THIS ~
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
If you make a mistake, don't be so hard on yourself because we have all made mistakes in life. It is called sin and Jesus have given us a way out of sin. A new day, brings new beginnings. I value your time and my prayers are with you, your family and friends. If you haven't put Jesus in your heart, ask him in today and to forgive you of your sin.
