Minimize by Maximizing

Standard

Guten Morgen Menschen Von GOTT!

Minimize your weaknesses by maximizing your strengths. The Gift of Might and the weapons GOD give with which we can fight, are powerful. Utilize them.

To allow your gifts and strengths to lay dormant and your weaknesses to flourish is the kind of life…the devil likes. And a sure way…..to lose.

You were born to win.

The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair. But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6 MSG)

Don’t look back

Standard

Life can be challenging.

Sometimes in life GOD will take away everything dear to us. Most times we don’t understand. All the time we want it all back. We want our old comfortable existence back. But what GOD wants, is to prepare us for the “New”.

In order to do that a refining process must take place. This process involves removing people, places, things, habits and thoughts that keep us from a deeper relationship with GOD. The removal of every interest or inclination that has kept us in a place we unknowingly, or even knowingly had outgrown.

Lets stop being resistant to our change. We hinder ourselves by constantly turning around, looking back and reaching back for what GOD purposefully put behind us to prepare us for what lies ahead of us.

I’m often reminded of a powerful sermon given by my pastor Jeffrey Reaves a few years ago on the first Sunday of that year. In the message he was persistently thought invoking with this special announcement: “GOD wants you…to make a NEW start!” This message spoke volumes then, and it still does. So on that note I would like to make an announcement:

“GOD wants you….to make a New Start!”

And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” (Revelation 21:5 NLT)

I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. (Jeremiah 29:11 GWT)

Thank GOD for Good Men

Standard

Men…some of y’all get a bad rap. And even I could rap a taste about some not so good ones I’ve met in my day. But in this here blog I would like to say..”thanks”. Thank you to the helpers. The men who see your hands full and offer a hand. The ones who open and hold doors and help with man sized household chores. Thanks to the man that helped to open the oil cap on my car that some other strong man tightened. He could see it was far to hard for me to open it. Thanks to the other man who held the door when I went in the store and helped me find the oil. Thanks to my friends husband who changed my brake light. I tell you, Men, sometimes you get a bad rap and again I “could” spit a hot fire like 16 bars about how not good some of you are. But instead I’ll use my platform to uplift and thank GOD for the Good Ones knowing that one day HE will make me one of those Good Ones GIFT! 😉 ❤Uplift
