GOD knows the END RESULT

Image
People may claim they know you but the truth of the matter is, nobody knows you like God knows you. Your best friends can know various areas of your life or your past. Based on how you reacted in the past people can predict how you will act in the future. That's all it is... a prediction. Your life may seem complicated right now but guess what... It has never been complicated to God. He knew about it before it even occurred. Everyday of your life has been predestined according to the will of God. Ypu are an actor/ress following the script but you must always listen to the director - God. The struggle comes in here... How are you going to take the script? Will you trust the fact that he is God and he knows all? The Bible tells us that all things work together for the good of those who are called according to his purpose. So the questions are: Do you love God? Will you do what he wants you to do for him? If you answered yes to both of those questions then you are in good hands. Everyth…

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET EVEN!

So you mean I don't have to argue and get even? NOPE! Romans 12:18-20 (The Message)17-19Don't hit back; discover beauty in everyone. If you've got it in you, get along with everybody. Don't insist on getting even; that's not for you to do. "I'll do the judging," says God. "I'll take care of it." 20-21Our Scriptures tell us that if you see your enemy hungry, go buy that person lunch, or if he's thirsty, get him a drink. Your generosity will surprise him with goodness. Don't let evil get the best of you; get the best of evil by doing good.I know this is difficult. It has to be the hardest instruction to follow when you have been wounded. Let things slide? How? I need to get back at the person. I often remember a pastor saying "Meekness is not weakness". It's not. I understand that now. When you are humble and patient with your life situation you are not lacking authority. You are only letting God have his rightful plac…

How do you introduce GOD?

Image
I hope this sparks some conversation. Let's go. Of  course everyone knows that you are happy in your new relationship. You're showing all the teeth God gave you when someone mentions their name. But if someone asks you why you love them what can you say? We may say, "He/She cooks for me! He/She bought me this! Whenever I call him/her she is there!" But what does that tell others about the relationship or the worth of that other person? All that says is what that person does for you... Hmmm? I think alot of us define our relationship to God the same way. Others see the change in our life. "Why you so happy now? This thing with God has really changed you? Who is this God?" Many of us may say... "He paid my bills. He got me a new job. He did this... he did that..." Okay. But does that define your love for him? Just like in the natural situation with new love. You are telling them all the things he did for you. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying …

THE AFTERMATH

Scar - a lasting aftereffect of trouble, esp. a lasting psychological injury resulting from suffering or trauma (Dictionary.com)Can I talk to ya'll today? I really just want to be me and express my thoughts on scars. I hope you feel it. If not, pray on it. I'm sure God will have something to say.As everyone knows, sclerosis means scar. In NMS we look at scars and see how we can promote remission. In the above definition it says a scar is a lasting aftermath of trouble or psychological injury resulting from suffering or trauma. These are the worst types of scars, the emotional ones - the ones you can't physically see. They are deep and even though they can't  be seen they can definitely be felt. If you fall and bump your knee you can get something to put on it. It will heal. You may or may not be left with a mark but a spiritual scar is so much different. I am all too familiar with them.The actual event happened and the fact that it happened hurts. However, it can't…
