Are You ?

Are you tired and confused ? Are you tired yet from running from one conference to another? Are you tired  of trying to prove who you are to others ?  Are you tired of running from one retreat to another ? Do you know who you are in Christ Jesus? Are you tired yet of competing with others? God did not make you to be like others He did not intend for you to try and work out your own salvation! God has prepared work for each of us so we do not have to compete with others.

Ephesians 2

We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

God in His wisdom has worked out our souls salvation through His Son Jesus Christ

Titus 3:5 ESV

He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit

However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them.
John 6:37 NLT

Corinthians 4:8-10 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

We don’t need to run here and there we only need to run to God’s word for clarity and peace. God does not cause confusion!
For God is not a God of disorder but of peace, as in all the meetings of God’s holy people.
1 Corinthians 14:33 NLT

God  wants us to know and trust Him not every word that comes from man is from God

Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
1 John 4:1 NLT

After you’ve ran and ran and listen to others have you changed ? It’s time for us to get quite and seek the Lord ! When you’re quite and listening you can hear from God and you can stop running

If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord .
Jeremiah 29

13. If you look for me whole heartedly you will find me.

Even when we are perplexed and tired God is there and willing to help us get into God’s word and stop listening to everyone else.

2 Cor . 5:21 2 Cir. 5:17 Colossians 2:10

For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.
1 Peter 1:23 NLT
Praise God He has made us whole through Christ Jesus.

Down in the Dumps

Even though we are faced with this “monster” depression,we are never alone,God is and will always be with us! We must keep our minds renewed in God’s word,knowing that no matter what God will bring us out. God has forewarned of these times we now live,and he said men’s hearts would fail them because of fear, and the things that’s coming upon the earth will cause much fear. But we his children have many promises to stand on,and knowing that God’s word is truth gives us much hope! The things going on and coming will bring many to “Repentance”, and that’s what they’re meant to do,as well as draw us closer to God. I give God “Praise” for his goodness and “Great Mercy”!!!! God’s power to restore us and keep us is “Awesome”! Joshua 1:9 Isaiah 41:10 “Don’t Be Afraid I Am With You.

Yes?

For many years

I walked around

with head bowed

down

low almost to the

ground.

I had no self esteem

for  the way others

treated me

But now I’ve  learned

some lessons

and I’ve learned

them well

I come from Royalty

and there is

nothing

wrong

with

being black

So now my head

is held high

For there is no

reason

For me to be shy

I am loved

And when you know

it makes

a

difference.

Yes I’m feeling much better this morning as you can probably tell,and what I had on my mind

is what I’m writing about.It’s hard living in a world full of people and you feel you’re the least

thought about! But those things don’t bother me as much as they use to,and for that I thank God!

For I know that he loves me and that alone makes me happy! The King of Kings and the Lord of Lord’s Loves Me,little old  Me,He Loves Me!!

Love in Christ  Pat
