Love one another..

“Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the days out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived.”

(Galations 6:2 MSG)
Let’s keep our eyes on the Lord and what he wants us to do each day. Share each other’s burdens with Christ like love .

Keeping our eyes on what God can do….

One of my favorite books in the Bible is Ephesians. I know that our heavenly father cares about every aspect of our lives. When I feel overwhelmed and start to worry, I go back to Ephesians 3 :20. Now, unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.  (king James Bible)

It isn’t what we can do, or what anyone else can do for us. It is what the almighty God can do for us and through us.Our God is an awesome God. God is a God of miracles.Our God gives us the ability to overcome circumstances in our lives.It is through the word of the Lord that we can get the wisdom to know what to do when we are at a lost for answers on our own.

Paul’s prayer for those he knew needed  spiritual wisdom was ” I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious father of our Lord Jesus Christ , to give you  spiritual wisdom  and insight so that  you might grow in your knowledge of God.” NLT

When we are faced with tough questions, where do we go for answers?

I encourage you to seek God in all things. There is power in the Word of God.

I was a little girl who grew up in poverty. My father spent years in prison. He later died in prison. My mother struggled with five children to raise. God changed our lives. I am married to a wonderful man. I found my purpose in life. I’ve earned two degrees and have worked with children for 27 years. God has blessed me. God has brought me through many valleys and has brought down many mountains.I am blessed with five children and eleven grandchildren. Every one is a blessing. No matter what we go througn in life.

I know that our God is greater than anything  and can do exceedingly above and beyond what we can imagine! I am a fine example of how God can take a person out of poverty, shame  and heartache as a child and set my feet upon solid ground! On Christ, I stand. All other ground is sinking sand.

Never take your eyes off of what the Lord can do!
