Youdontevenknow Ministry began, out of my own hurts from life. I wanted to make a difference and show that a new beginning can happen in life no matter what you have been through. God's word brings a new life.
The Bible says:
Romans 3:23-24 New International Version (NIV)
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
MY THOUGHTS ~
I wanted to be able to encourage others daily.
I decided to start a blog and spread the good news that can happen through the darkest times of life. God has a way of showing us light through words or actions of someone else. I remember being so broken and God used my daughter (a teenager) to help me see myself different. My focus was wrong and she began to say this, put some post it notes around the house. Positive statements about myself and it worked! I began a positive attitude instead of a negative attitude. Now I totally believe what God says about me.
Romans 8:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
Life Through the Spirit
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
MY THOUGHTS ~ FROM THE BEGINNING
In the days of Adam and Eve, the beginning tells us that they believed the lie of the devil and went against what God told them. Yet, God had plan B waiting after the sin. Just like you and me. We have sinned too and plan B comes into action. I love how God forgives and forgets our mess ups in life. Life through the Spirit sets us free!
Think about that for a minute, freedom is yours and mine for the asking. Wow, a new beginning and the truth shall set us FREE. The truth is God took it all with the blood of Jesus and now you have a right to live free. A surrendered life style to God changes you from the inside out. People start to notice that you are different. Your attitude becomes one of being positive and you see things in life as a joy. It doesn't always happen over night because life changing things are often a process. Be easy on yourself as the process of you changes into a better person and not bitter.
MY THOUGHTS ~
Not everyone is in a broken place of life, but most of us know someone who is. I was that person broken and I needed someone to shed some hope into my life. This didn't just happen once to me, but a few times. I had to learn in whom do I put my trust? I had to learn the process does bring hurts, pains, disappointments and new beginnings. New normals after a death or new normal after a sin. New normal after you loose a job or health issues arise. Through it all, trust in God. That is a key sentence and statement in life.
Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
MY THOUGHTS ~
I care about those who read my blog, your family and friends. I do pray daily for you and I might not know your name or who you are, but God certainly does. Just a daily encouragement can go a long way. Thank you for taking the time to read this and share it today.
Have a great day
