The Bible speaks of guarding your heart and casting your cares on God. There is a reason for letting go of things in life. Holding onto somethings only brings about stress and the wonder of life begins. Why did this happen to me? Life wasn't suppose to be this way!
Do you really think that nobody understands? I know that this ministry started as you don't even know because people's words brought me to defeat. I had to purpose myself to get back up and not to listen to words I kept replaying that was said to me. It took time for me to see myself the way God does and it took others encouraging me to press forward. We need others who are positive in our lives. The Bible holds the truth and not everyone who says they are a Christian, is a Christian. Let's be real about that and remember that each of us are human. Even if the person was a Christian, wrong words can be said at times. We all make mistakes and need forgiveness in this life. Be careful not to judge someone. We are to love one another.
John 13:34-35 New International Version (NIV)
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
John 15:11-14 New International Version (NIV)
I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
LIFE ~ JOY
Getting rid of stress, casting cares off and moving into the peace of God. Each day of life brings challenges and decisions. Each of us can make good decisions and bad decisions of life. This journey continues and we can grow from our own mistakes. We can choose to become a better person and not become a bitter person. Life's choices so change our destiny!
John 15:14 ~ You are my friends if you do what I command.
God calls you a friend. Wow how cool is that, being a friend of God. In life we experience different types of friendships and relationships. We must all begin somewhere and there is a level of trust that develops over time. Getting to know a person and that person getting to know you. A friendship with God means he has already chosen you, created you and calls you a friend if you keep his commands. This is so powerful and important. Let's us make sure we talk to God daily and give thanks for this day. Through it all, trusting God and leaning not to our own understanding on somethings is important.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Make sure you guard your heart because things change suddenly in life. Purpose this a good day.
