Hey I'm a work in progress, don't judge me. Be very careful when you pray Psalm 139:23-24, because God will really search you deep down. He will bring things to the surface that you may think you have dealt with. When you tell yourself you have done pretty well in certain areas, or say may be one particular area, God is sure to let you be put in a situation where what you think you have overcome will be put to the test. Dear page, this is the dilemma that I have found myself in. However though, my thinking that I have dealt with such, can still be considered growth, because I am able to identify when things start to take a turn, and then find a way to get myself out of it, or recognize that, that is when I need to talk more to the Holy Spirit to help me in the area where I may still seem to be struggling. So I will boldly say it again, HEY, I'M A WORK IN PROGRESS.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for helping me see areas in my life where I still have some struggles. I lay those …
You have come along way, you should be very proud of yourself. Remember God's promises to you in Jeremiah 29:11? Hold on to that hope that His plans for you are good, and continue to just rest in His presence, seeking His will for your life. I would ask one thing of you though, be easy on yourself, God knows what He is doing, He has you right where you need to be, do not rush the process. If anything, ride the waves, and just enjoy your journey to the top. I know some days can be challenging, but guess what? you have got what it takes, you are a lion. You are the daughter of a king. Hope to check with you soon dearest self. until then, keep being your fabulous self.
I have titled this post Identity,
because that is what I really want to talk about today, especially as it
pertains to our children, especially the young ones that are just beginning to
find themselves, and are coming into their own. As someone who works with
children ages 8-12, and sometimes 13yrs old, I see and hear a whole lot of
things that bother me as a parent of an 8yrs old child, and sometimes these
things, I must say, scare me to my very core, to the point that I have to
remind myself of what the word of God says about how He’ll protect my offspring
(Is 49:25). Parents, this is not to scare you, or cause your minds to worry,
but to bring to your awareness that, making sure your children know and
understand their identity in Christ, will help them a great deal as
they step into the real world. The bible tells us that the father of all lies
is the devil (John 8:44), he will go to any length to spread his lies; just
like he is doing in our society as we speak. I love what I do, b…
Does He Even Care?
When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” Luke 7:13 Recommended Reading:Luke 7:11-17
Her tears blurred her vision. While we do not know if she saw
Jesus, she did not reach out to Him: her son was dead and needed life.
She knew Jesus was a healer but what could He do for her? In the midst
of her grief, Jesus saw her and He had compassion. Instead of skipping
to the happy end of this story, let’s stop here: Jesus had compassion.
This simple phrase is found throughout each of the Gospels. An
integral part of Jesus’ character is His compassion. Sometimes we find
it easier to pray for others than for ourselves. We subconsciously
wonder, why would God help me? We forget Jesus’ compassion when we get
stuck in this mindset. The life-changing truth is that Jesus is good and
He encourages us to ask Him for help. He never ran from disease, death,
or wretchedness. While we may not understand why certain prayers are
