Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that His kindness is intended to turn you from your sin? ROMANS 2: 4

It’s the kindness of God that brought us to Him. From darkness into light, from condemnation we have been justified and delivered. We have been forgiven, cleansed and made whole. In Christ, we have the gift of salvation through the death of God’s Son and heaven is our destination! Hallelujah!

“There’s no longer Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female—you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s children, and you are heirs of the promise!” Galatians 3:28-29 (FBV)

“And if you belong to Christ, then you are descendants of Abraham. Because of that, you will receive all the good things that God promised to Abraham.” Galatians 3:29 (EASY)

Friend, if you are in Christ, you are an heir to all the promises in the Bible.

“The relationship I promise to the house of Israel is this: After that time, says the Lord, I will place my laws inside them, and write them in their minds. I will be their God, and they will be my people.” Hebrews 8:10‭ (FBV)

“One thing I know for sure is that God takes care of His people.” And Friend, that includes you. God will take care of YOU! 🙌

“Since the Lord is my shepherd, I have everything I need. He gives me rest in green fields. He leads me towards quietly flowing streams. He revives me. He guides me along the right paths because that’s the kind of person he is. Even when I walk through the valley dark as death, I’m not afraid of any evil, because you are right there with me; your rod and your staff protect me. You prepare a banquet for me before my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with olive oil. My cup is so full it overflows! I’m absolutely certain that your goodness and trustworthy love will be with me all through my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalms 23:1‭-‬6 (FBV)

“I’m absolutely certain that Your goodness and trustworthy love will be with me all through my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.” Lord, thank You for being my Shepherd and taking such good care of me. Amen! 🙏🕊️🙌

“God cares more about who you become than who you were in the past.”

“Anyone who is joined to Christ is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (GNT)

“Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new person. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.” (TPT)

“The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. I’ve come to bring you life, life full to overflowing.” John 10:10 (FBV)

When you are in Christ, everything that you said and did (that you really wish you hadn’t) is forgotten by God. Every sinful thought, word and action is forgiven and washed away. You get a fresh start, a clean slate and a whole new chapter in your life. Does this mean you will never, ever, sin again? Sorry, but no. Paul struggled with his sinful nature and you will too. And you will have the enemy trying even harder to bring you down. But you won’t ever be alone. You have the Holy Spirit in you, Jesus praying for you up in Heaven and a mighty Heavenly Father who is watching out for you every minute. And a Heavenly Army if you need them. And God will bring good people into your life who will pray for you and help you on your new journey.

Friend, if you didn’t like the way your life was going and who you were before you came to Jesus, you aren’t that person anymore you don’t need to live that life anymore. You’re new in Christ. “Your sins were red as scarlet, but now they are white as snow. (wool)” (Isaiah 1:18). God is “I Am”. He is not “I Was.” God isn’t interested in your past. He cares about the beautiful new you that He is going to help you become, if you trust Him to change you and guide your life into exciting new paths. All God wants to do is give you the best life that Jesus came to bring you. The life, full to overflowing, that God planned for you long ago, before you were born. Amen! 🙌

Think of when you have experienced this for yourself. Think of when Jesus showed up in the middle of the night, walking on water. He showed up for the disciples in unexpected ways at unexpected times!

Read Matthew 14:22-33 and be assured, He is right there for you.

I’m reading my book for my healing journey and the only words I see on the page are

“Be patient with yourself”

Then I highlighted everything is happening exactly as it should.

Then I took those words and applied them to my life by making this meme

Attaching them to me ♥️

Love thyself be patient with yourself

For if we do, we might not fulfill our destiny, our true callings. Without bravery, we might miss those will fill the hole in our hearts and for whom we are the missing piece.</span>

The Pamela Positive: “Courage is Being Scared to Death, But Saddling up Anyway” - John Wayne

Courage. What a powerful word. Sometimes it scares us to even hear the word courage when we’re supposed to have courage!Do you like horses? Great! Have you been on a horse and it tried to buck you off? Many of you have stayed the course, you stayed on the saddle. You’re going to continue to…

Who God Can Use by Julie Arduini

Who God Can Use by Julie Arduini

There are a few hats I wear and this year one of them is a Sunday School teacher. I co-teach a class for women and although we’re still finding normal after being on forced hiatus last year, I love it. I think I learn more than anyone else because I have to dig a little harder to prepare.

We started the new study, Elijah: Faith and Fire by Priscilla Shirer. If you aren’t aware of her, she is…

“Do all this in prayer, asking for God’s help. Pray on every occasion, as the Spirit leads. For this reason keep alert and never give up; pray always for all God’s people.” Ephesians 6:18 (GNT)

“Pray always. Pray in the Spirit. Pray about everything in every way you know how! And keeping all this in mind, pray on behalf of God’s people. Keep on praying feverishly, and be on the lookout until evil has been stayed.” Ephesians 6:18 (VOICE)

“Always be joyful and never stop praying. Whatever happens, keep thanking God because of Jesus Christ. This is what God wants you to do.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16‭-‬18 (CEV)

“If you remain in Me and My words remain in you [that is, if we are vitally united and My message lives in your heart], ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you.” John 15:7 (AMP)

Prayer unlocks the door to Heaven. Prayer unlocks the power of God in your life. Prayer unlocks blessings for the day. Prayer locks the door of your heart against the enemy to give you peace at night as you sleep. “Prayer is the key for the day; the lock for the night.”

“The best way to begin the day is to say a small prayer as you open your eyes. The key to opening the door of a happy and contented day, as you feel the warmth and glory of the sun, is nothing else but a prayer. Prayers are the holy words that sanctify your soul. When you join your hands in prayer, it works like a connecting chord between you and the Ultimate Creator.

Even experts and psychologists opine that if you begin the day on a rejuvenating, divine and optimistic note, the entire day flows like a smooth flowing river. Like the river, you are quiet yet in motion. Unaffected by all the materialistic chaos and mayhem happening around you, you work with an inner driving force that quietly works, within you. Saying a prayer in the start of the day, works like a fuel and gets you through the day, smoothly yet on a high energy note.

It is the power of prayer that can help you to imbibe virtues like confiding in the power and believing in the presence of the Almighty. We all know that, to err is human. Knowingly or unknowingly we commit mistakes, resulting in us or others getting hurt. Prayers work like a magic in healing a hurt soul, or a conscience overflowing with guilt. Prayers ease the process of confessing a sin in front of God.

By the end of the day, you need a peaceful mind and vibes of tranquillity around you. It is prayers that create these positive energies, wherein we can sleep peacefully and relax ourselves on a physical, mental and spiritual level. So pray and all the troubles will be at bay.”RelishQuotes
