Be Still

Usually we only quote and share Jeremiah 29:11 but I want to call your attention to Jeremiah 29:1~10 God is encouraging his people to settle down let your sons and daughters get married build your homes plant your gardens work for the peace and prosperity of the city,  In other words get comfortable for  you will be here for awhile! In the midst of our hard places we want out as soon as possible but God’s timing is so different from ours. God also told them to pray and so should we  while waiting on God’s time to be fulfilled, it’s so hard to be still while waiting on God we feel we must be doing something but most of the time what we do is make a mess!

We also feel like God has forgotten us but that is never going to happen He loves us to much! For then comes the reassuring promise of Jeremiah 29:11

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Yes His plans for us are greater than what we’re going through right now so be still and let God do what He has planned the end results will be wonderful.

Keeping It Real

Another post I wrote a long time back,please enjoy and I hope it’s a blessing .

As I was thinking about being a Christian,it came to me that the title Christian has changed today.For there are so many things going on that now being a Christian seems to mean nothing..And we as Christians have a lot to do with that,for years we’ve hid the truth from others while trying to act all perfect.And the real truth is as Christians we still do sinful things,and then call it and accident or mistake!Well you know as well as I do it is sinning,and others know it too.We should not be ashamed of our Testimony and “Keep it Real”,let others know where you are and where you’re going with the help of Almighty God.As Christians we tend to pick each other apart,because we think,well they’re not doing it just right.There are so many Christians afraid of talking about how they are really hurting and struggling,because they know if they open up exactly what will happen! And it should not be that way,we are to bear one an others burdens without making one feel less,we are told to do all in “Love”. I can remember when I was a baby Christian and buddy I went through it! So now I’m learning to be patient with others,”For God is not Finished with us Yet”! So to all of my brother’s & sister’s that are struggling to live right,just hold on God will get you to the place he want’s you to be,for he has promised Ephesians 3:20 To him who is able to do so much more than we can ever ask for,or even think of,by means of the power working in us. He can and he will do it,all of the changes you need.
