"Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot To the town gossip."
When I become critical towards others, it means I am going in the wrong direction. We are usually very good at spotting mistakes, but we should develop the quality of also spotting goodness. If I can see what is good in others or in situations and go beyond the curtain of negativity, I feel good about myself. If I constantly think "he is wrong", I instead create a barrier which blocks me from reaching my own goodness.
My Daughter, you are important to Me! I know how much your hectic life and busy schedule can distract you from hearing My voice, but I want to communicate with you and respond to you.
Hearing My words does take time and patience; it also involves learning to recognize My whisper in your heart. But don’t worry, I am patient with you. I keep trying and I have every confidence that you will keep trying to hear Me better and better, too.
There are so many “voices” competing for your attention. I know that you won’t always recognize My voice among them, even with many years of practice and awareness. But trust Me. It is part of My plan because life is a journey in faith. So don’t be discouraged if it seems like you’ll always question whether it’s My voice or not. I’m with you to guide you through life’s maze.
Believe Me, I am in complete control. Never fear. Keep seeking Me. Study My Word, know My heavenly principles, and trust Me. My gentle and kind voice will draw you.
Lovingly, Your Heavenly Father, THE King"
A compassionate person develops an eye for spotting the qualities that make each person special. Even when others are at their lowest
ebb, it is possible to help them restore their self-belief by keeping a firm, clear vision of their goodness and specialties. Taking a gently encouraging approach,I must never give up on anyone.
If you want to see God's power at work, you must get out of the church and into the world. Watch the extravagant lengths which God will go to reveal Himself to people who don't know Him. Then you will learn how truly awesome our God is.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness.Kindness in your face,
kindness in your eyes,kindness in your smile
~*~Mother Teresa :
Few things heal wounded spirits better than the balm of a supportive embrace. There are no words to describe how much I love you. That is why I stretched out My arms of love and died for you. I know sometimes you don’t feel lovable, but you don’t have to earn My affection. I adore you! You are My creation. I never want you to doubt My commitment to you.
I am the Lover of your soul, so let Me meet your every need. I long to set you free from searching for false love in the wrong places. Let Me hold on to your heart and fill you up with eternal love. Then you will feel My Holy presence and fall in love with Me.
Your King who can’t stop loving you
It is a new day and God wants to do something new in your life! If you are a Believer, you have a right to receive the manifestation of every word God has spoken over your life. As you lay hold of it by faith, it will come to pass. It is easy to become discouraged when you don't see things happening quickly enough, but as you seek His face through praise, prayer and worship, He will begin to reveal more of who He is to you. The more you know about Him, the more confident you will become in His ability to do exactly what He said He would do. You may have been going through some troubling circumstance or struggling with a certain situation for some time now. But the good news is that your days of strugg ling are over! If you want to experience the power of God in your life, it is critical that you find out what God promises in His Word. He doesn't want you to stay in your current situation; He wants to take you to new levels of glory every day! All it takes is your unwavering belief in what He says in His Word
Learning God's truth and getting it into our heads is one thing, but living God's truth and getting
it into our characters is quite something else....
"Prayer is asking for guidance; meditation, is listening for directions."
"Faith is holding out your hand to God in the fog of life." "If you enter into a contract with the devil be sure to read the fine print, it may seem like a cool deal at first, but in the long run it always gets too hot to handle."
"Those waiting for something to open up, may find it of value to start with their own heart."
"When you water the garden of your heart with love, you'll be amazed at what grows."
The only true source of meaning in life is found in love
for God and His son Jesus Christ. and love for mankind beginning with our own families.
The most important thing that I am in my life is a servant for God. I am also a single mother whom God has blessed with four wonderful children. I love the Lord with every ounce of my being. I am also a adoptee who is actively searching for birth family
The most profane word we use is "hopeless." When you say a situation or person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God
The commandment of absolute truthfulness is really only another name for the fullness of discipleship
Lord, When I stop working for YOUR Glory Shut me Down. Life is NOT worth Living if not all for YOU
Do not think of the faults of others but of what is good in them and faulty in yourself
But none of these things move me, neither do I count my life dear to myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus Christ, to testify fully the gospel of the grace of God. (Act 20:24 MKJV)
In our society where folks are rushing to make appointments they have already missed, a good laugh can be a refreshing as a cup of cold water in the desert
Christian fellowship provides us with encouragement and love; It will help us in our journey
Till we reach our home above
Many people are leaving church today because they’ve been wounded or disappointed. Don’t become another casualty.
When frustrations develop into problems
that stress you out, the best way to cope is to stop, catch your breath,and do something for yourself, not out of selfishness, but out of wisdom.
"A friend is one to whom one can pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keeping what is worth keeping, and, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away."
The Bible proclaims that "there is none good,no not one." It says," we have all sinned and fallen short of God's glory." Faith in Jesus Christ, and Christ alone is the ONLY WAY to be saved. There is NO OTHER name by which men can be saved. There are not many roads that lead to God, only ONE..faith in Jesus Christ!
God loves you and cares about you so much. People don't need more false hope and empty hype. What they need is the unadulterated Truth of God's Word so that they can not only come to know Christ in the pardon of their sins, but live a victorious life here on earth.
That ONLY happens when you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and live your life according to God's Word.
Do you know that if your heart stopped beating in the next minute that you will be forever with the Lord? Do you have that assurance today? The most important decision you will make in this life is not who you will marry, or where you will live, or what kind of job you will have. The most important decision you will make in this life is to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. If you have not done that yet, the Bible says that TODAY is the day of salvation.
PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE AND PRAY FOR THESE PEOPLE BELOW, GOD LOVES TO HEAR PRAYERS
We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." 2 Corinthians 10:5 (NAS)
