"From God's Perspective"
There’s an old saying in the weightlifting business, “No pain, No Gain!” Most of us have experienced challenging times in our lives and if given the choice we might not want to go through them again. But at the same time we can look back and say, While we didn’t enjoy the problems, we are alot stronger. today because of them.
God is trying to “make us” not “break us”. After all, It's not our problems that are bothering us, it is the way we are looking at them! So lets look at them from God's Perspecive because "We know that all things work together for good to them that love God , to them who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28)

Topic :" Don't Sweat It!"
God says this about anxiety: "Do not be anxious for anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-)
Peace prevents you from overreacting and under-reacting. It helps you to process the situation by bringing it to the Lord first which allows you to handle it in ways that come not from fear but from strength. 
Have a peaceful day

I was just thinking about the great impact these 3 things make in our lives. 
New Birth, when we receive Jesus into our heart (Romans 10:9-10) New Walk, when we feed the Spirit, and Starve the Flesh (2Peter 2:1-3) New Goal, when we forget our past failures, and press to reach our new goal

Say It Loud ....I Am Who I Am And Proud !
Psalms 139:14, "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; ……….. David was not boasting in who he was, but rather being thankful and rejoicing over the beautiful creation that God made him! When I say that you need to love yourself, I'm not referring to the stuck-up, prideful, arrogant , and worldly type of love that we often see. But rather , the type of love that frees us from psychological, spiritual, and emotional bondage, self hatred and unwillingness to forgive oneself , and others.

“Your Mess, His Message”
When you believe that God justifies the ungodly, it will give you boldness to come to Him, even when you feel unclean because you have just blown it. When you falter, fumble, and fail, don’t Run away from God. Run boldly to Him, knowing that you are justified by the blood of Christ and not by your good behavior.
1 John 1:9 if we confess your sins, God is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness .
Let's Pray,
Lord allow us to know and understand our human frailties. Strengthen us where we are weak, build us up, where we have been torn down. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen

"Nothing but the Word" 
A very important question is raised in Romans 8:35-39: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor 
the future, nor any powers, 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.”
Have a blessed weekend!

“Do’s and Don’ts”
Don’t be like David, when confronted by Nathan the prophet; in that he automatically assumed that Nathan was talking about someone else. David said that the scoundrel who has done this terrible thing must certainly die. Imagine the shock when Nathan told David, “you are the man”. ( 2 Samuel 12:7)
Do be like David, when confronted with personal sin. David acknowledged his sinfulness and in effect submitted himself to the judgment and mercy of the Lord. (2 Samuel 12:13

“ Thank You, Jesus"
Let’s pause, and think about how God has brought us through the storm and the rain…through the fire and the flood . And in spite of all the hell, havoc, and hurt , we are still clothed in our right mind! 
Not sure what you are feeling, but I feel an “ugly praise” coming up. Thank You, Jesus!
" He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth [shall be thy] shield and buckler" (Psalms 91:4

"Praise is a Mighty Weapon"
Psalm 7:17 I will praise the Lord........
During those times when it's difficult to pray and the tears are streaming down your face . Don't worry God is preparing you for transition and walking with you through your storm. Just lift your hands and worship through the tears and the pain. The more you praise Him, the clearer the vision will become , because God allows what's in the spiritual realm to be 
manifested in the natural.. when we praise Him!

'Spread the Word”
Your testimony can have a powerful impact on someone else’s life. However, you have to be willing to share it. When Jesus healed the blind man, the blind man said: I know this: “I was blind, and now I can see!” (John 9:25)
When Jesus forgave the Samaritan woman she “told everyone, Come and meet a man who told me everything I ever did! Can this be the Messiah?” (John 4:29) 
Has Christ done a work in your life? Then tell someone! 
Have a great day

"It Never Fails"
This song is resonating in my spirit , “Don’t stop praying, the Lord is nigh, don’t stop praying, He hears your cry, the Lord has promised, and His Word is true, don’t stop praying. He will answer you 
1 John 5:14 says ",And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:”
Praying is not a waste of time! God honors the prayers of His people. So my friend ASK – BELIEVE – RECEIVE !

" Standing Strong" 
Jesus said, "You cannot serve both God & mammon. You will end up loving one & hating the other." And that’s how it is today in our society. There are other altars, & other gods beckoning for our attention and our worship. But my friend, we can not compromise , we must stand strong and proclaim "For God so loved the world that He gave His one & only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. [John 3:16)
Have a wonderful weekend, and remember to share God's Word!

" Let's Escape "
Temptation comes in beautiful packages...... Ummmm, that fine man... that gorgeous woman! 
It hits you where you are weak.... your marriage is on the rocks, or you have been single too long , and God is not answering your prayers fast enough!
It blinds you from reality..... you're living in the ideal and not the real world,.... the grass looks greener on the other side!
It plays on your emotions..... .loneliness,.....infatuation,...... lust 
It separates you from God... guilt,..... shame .......condemnation
It makes you its slave......bondage, ....entanglement., strongholds …
“But God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape"
(1 Corinthians 10:13

‘A Visit to the Potter’s House”
In Jeremiah Chapter 18 , God told Jeremiah to go down to the Potter’s House( Potter symbolizes God the Father ), where pottery was made, and to just sit down and listen.
. So Jeremiah went down to the Potter’s House, and there was a wheel, spinning (Wheel symbolizes the revolving circumstances in life)
Jeremiah also noticed there was some clay, Clay ( symbolizes you and me as Christians)
As Jeremiah watched the Potter, something would occasionally go wrong, with the clay: it appeared spoiled . But no big deal, the Potter would never throw away the “spoiled clay”. He gently picked it up,and rolled it together again, Why because the Potter saw that clay not for what it was; but for what it could become

"Got Faith"
It’s been said that you can lose a lot of things, but don’t you lose your faith!. This statement is so true, because faith allows you to seize what you cannot see!. When all the odds are stacked against you, you need faith in order to endure the opposition, without compromising your character.
Got Faith? Don’t you dare let it go, your blessing is on its way! God will do just what He said, so hold on, and hang in there.
Hebrews 11:6 says,”Without faith it’s impossible to please God"

“Maturity ”
As we mature in Christ, we will find out more and more what a humbling, and empowering thing it is to praise and honor God during the most difficult times in our lives. Psalm 34:19 says “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the lord delivers him out of them all.” This means that trials come to test, teach, and to chisel away the old, as we become sculpted by the hand of God into a perfect masterpiece

“Happiness or Joy?”
Happiness is elusive in this Life. Happiness is contingent upon what is happening. It is quite different from joy. Joy is internal, it is something that radiates from the inside of you, and it flows to the outside. It stands independently, and is not based on what is going on around you. You can be broke, sick, jobless, and homeless, but still have joy . Joy comes from the Lord, and nothing/no one can take it away. So forget about the pursuit of happiness and embrace joy! 
“The Joy of the Lord Is My Strength”( Nehemiah 8:10)

" A Wise Choice”
We've all made some bad decisions /choices in the past.Yet, no matter how good-or bad- our choices have been, there is really just one choice that really matters. That is the choice of where we will spend eternity.
God has given us a free will, and we must exercise it or we will be making a choice by default.. It’s better my friend to choose God's will over man's, and commitment over convenience!
“ I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” Deuteronomy 30:19

"No Excuses"
Moses had been commissioned by God to deliver Israel out of Egypt. In response, Moses gave excuses as to why he did not think he was the man for the job. “Who am I? he asked.
The question really was not about who Moses was or was not, but who God is.! When God calls us, not only does He prepare and equip us, but He promises His presence as well. God answered Moses, saying, “Certainly I will be with thee” (Exodus 3:12)
Today God speaks the same reassuring words to us: so my friend, let us not make excuses!
