SOMETHING CHANGED ~
When you give your heart to God
2 Corinthians 13:11-14 New International Version (NIV)
Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. 12 Greet one another with a holy kiss.
13 All God’s people here send their greetings. 14 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
SOMETHING CHANGED ~
Community, communication, sharing life and reaching beyond the stars!
Prayers works, but it doesn't always turn out the way we think. In trusting God, we find we must let go of somethings and somethings become new. The Bible does speak of seeking God, asking God and knocking. In listening to others, I find that we do tend to believe a little different and live according to what we know. I was speaking to friends last night, I saw a view point from a mother and a view point of her daughter, which were both the same. I loved it and it made my heart smile to listen to them. There is something about trusting God through it all that matters. There will be ups and downs in all of our lives, but you are important and God wants the desires of your heart come to pass as well.
One yes to God, opens doors! God gives us signs of the time as well. He knows that we need guidance and hope of a new day. Life is a process of change and the change can be good.
Matthew 24:32-33 (NIV)“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.
I heard someone say this to me, "YOU HAVE CHANGED". I responded by is that a good change or what? They responded back, "it was a good change". I can look back at my life and see how only God has held me up in some moments of time. My thoughts can overpower me and my life seemed to be out of control. Wondering what was next in life and when would things change for the better. Just being real with you today and I know that real is important. Your life and my life might be different, but we are called by God for purpose.
Yes I have changed and I'm happy I did. I am not who I used to be and I see how much my faith has grown over my life. There are many unanswered prayers and yet I feel a peace about them. I know that God has taken my life from point A to point B and each step is important. It changes me and my outlook at things in life. We have been given a measure of faith.
Romans 12:3 New King James Version (NKJV)
Serve God with Spiritual Gifts
3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.
YOU ~ ARE IMPORTANT
YOU ~ ARE CALLED
YOU ~ ARE FORGIVEN
YOU ~ ARE GIVEN A MEASURE OF FAITH
Even if you have little faith, it is still faith. It can move mountains......Change is not always easy, but it does happen to each of us. Keep faith, deep breath and give thanks for a new day.
Matthew 17:20 (NIV)
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
