Reminders

Even now in your fear,doubt and confusion anger being miserable and misunderstood feeling alone and being alone being sick even being sick for a long time being disappointed and depressed feeling unloved even hated upset even highly upset! We will go through some things and situations in this world we never even thought of I may have missed mentioning where you are right now,but just remember Jesus Christ knew our journey and He is aware of where you are right now . At times life gets really hard and our minds start to act in ways we are ashamed of because no matter how hard we try we can’t control them,have you ever been there? I just sit and think sometimes what’s really going on I’m sure you do too! But I’m also aware that Jesus is for us and He will never leave us I’m also sure about His love mercy and grace and without Him we could not possibly make it through these trying times and keep our sanity. I’m learning that no matter where we are we still have reasons to give God praise it may take awhile but it will come, because the Holy Spirit will bring it He also gives us great encouragement and comfort. We have to remind ourselves we are only human and we will never understand things that happen to us family or friends the best we can do is keep trying to pray {that gets hard too} and trying to stay in the word whew some days we don’t feel like doing either but we are still Loved and Adored by our Heavenly Father. A few scripture I find helpful if you’d like leave me a few you use

Isaiah 43

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God

John 11

So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days

21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

Oh how often we feel this way Lord if?

2 Corinthians 4

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

Romans 8

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We absolutely need Reminders

Listening

Listening to Líes let’s Stop It! It does not matter who’s preaching or teaching everything they say is not for us we must use Discernment so that when we face difficult trials we can stand and keep trusting God.Sometimes the words we hear sound good and right but if it’s not the truth then it’s not for us ,getting into God’s word and memorizing scripture is so very important His word is what we must listen to at all times

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Romans 12:2 – And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

NKJV

Proverbs 18:15

The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

NKJV

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

Colossians 2:8-10 – NKJV

1 Timothy 4:1

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,

NKJV

For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

1 Corinthians 14:33 – NKJV

God Is Able

“But David persisted. “I have been taking care of my father’s sheep and goats,” he said. “When a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the flock,”‭‭‬‬“I go after it with a club and rescue the lamb from its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by the jaw and club it to death.”

‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭17:34,35 NLT‬‬

Preparation; David had learned that God is able and faithful to keep him and give him the strength for battle! We should also learn from our battles that God will never leave us He’s always with us.

“Don’t be ridiculous!” Saul replied. “There’s no way you can fight this Philistine and possibly win! You’re only a boy, and he’s been a man of war since his youth.””‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭17:33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Regardless To what anyone says about the call God has on your life don’t take it to heart. God repairs us for every battle He’s the one who knows every situation and He’s more than able to carry us through any battle. It does not matter the size of the giants we have the victory because God is able and He’s faithful! So don’t give up in the battle .

What Are You Looking For?

The two disciples heard him say this and went with Jesus. Jesus turned, saw them following him, and asked, “What are you looking for?”
John 1:37‭-‬38 GNB

What a question! When we accepted Jesus as our Saviour what were we really expecting? I’m sure as we ponder that question we will come to the conclusion that following Jesus Christ is not exactly what we expected! But as we grow in the Lord
our expectations change. But what we were looking for is someone who will do things our way ,right ☺ but as we walk with the Lord we  learn that is not the way. Sometimes disappointment sets in  and really cloud our view of of Saviour and His ways ! Thank God for the Holy Spirit for He will surely bring our thoughts and desires around to what we should be looking for, and that is to do His will regardless to what we are really looking for in Christ Jesus. How Awesome God is and just to know Him is Amazing!
Father help us  to desire you and your will Father help us to know you truly are who we are looking for in Jesus name Amen

My Current Situation

Well after finally going to sleep around 3:30 AM I’m up at 6:30 AM bathroom run(more like roll in my Mom’s old wheelchair) glad I kept it ! As soon as my foot hit the floor that pain shot through my body whoa it was bad! I made a mad dash for my crackers didn’t see them chips will do,whew I thank God I didn’t fall and for good medince! The word tells us

“We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,”
Acts 14:22
We never know what form these Hardships will take! Doing things Gods way is always best not easy,because after all Jesus had to go through Gethsemane to get to where God wanted Him (Matthew 26:36~46) So as I’m dealing with this terrible sciatica I’m learning even more about Gods faithfulness He is truly my very present help. The way God does things seem so strange to us because we love to figure things out,and surely we know that ant happening with God. Its only by faith that we learn to lean and depend on God in every situation for He has promised

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Deuteronomy 31:8

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord .  “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9

So as we go through we have great help the promises of God for every test and trial,I am so grateful to God for His Son my great Saviour Jesus Christ ! As we go through these difficult situations and hardships they do make us strong so hang in there God is not finished with us yet, for when He is we shall come forth bright and shinning enabled to bear one anothers burdens . Thank You Lord !

Endurance

Jesus taught us well! But in the midst of our pain and suffering we tend to forget we PraiseGodmust Endure some things. We learn through God’s word how much our ancestors had to Endure and God never failed to bring them through Paul gave us some great advice

2 Timothy 2

3 Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus

Endurance

2.

the ability or strength to continue or last, especially despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions; stamina:
Endurance brings results that can come no other way God is in total control and He allows what’s necessary to grow us. Jesus Christ is the Master Sargent He is our perfect example He endured absolute hardness to set us free. We must  arm our selves with the same mind knowing this
1 Peter 4
12 Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. 13 Instead, be very glad—for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world.
God is for us and Victory is ours through it all !
