Desiring More Of God

1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV1984) Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.:

 

Happy new month everyone. Time surely flies. We are already in March. I hope your all doing well. So today I’m coming to you guys with something quite different. I would like to say a challenge. You might already be partaking in this alone or with someone. I’m not too sure but here are the rules.

Rules For This Challenge.

  1. Download the Holy Bible App
  2. Look For A Bible Plan
  3. Ask A Friend, Family Member, or Co Worker To Participate With You
  4. Begin the plan Asap.
  5. Before you start grab a writing utensil and a notebook.
  6. Prepare Your Heart & Your Mind. Pray. Invite The Holy Spirit Into Your Time With The Lord.
  7. You don’t have to be with your friend or whomever it may be that’s participating.
  8. You have to discuss it together whether that means calling each other or meeting up.
  9. Share your thoughts about what you learned through reading/studying.
  10. Take notes & pray to end your time together.

Bonus*: Spend time in Worship.

My Experience:

I’ve been using thee Bible app for about 4 years now. I still open my physical Bible because I do prefer that but the Bible app has great Bible plans. There’s so much to learn. I started reading/studying the Bible more in 2015/2016. It’s been a blessing. Last month, I invited my sister to partake in this challenge I’m presenting to you all today. I told her to select a plan for us to both read and reflect upon. The Bible plan she selected was called “Finding Your Way Back To God”. I learned so much reading the plan. The only problem I will say is that my sister wasn’t really consistent because I finished the plan but she still two days behind. Don’t get me wrong, I reminded her to read it but I don’t know but her consistency wasn’t quite good. I haven’t closed that plan yet because we need to reflect on it. Besides that, everything else was great. It’s always exciting for me to see people I know growing in the Lord. No matter where the person you choose may be in their walk with Christ, know that they can find their way back. Plant the seed and watch God do his part. Never give up on those you love. Sometimes, they need a push at times, all you can do is pray for them. I hope that as you partake in this challenge, that you will be encouraged & blessed. Feel free to send me a comment, feedback on any questions, prayer requests or how the challenge is going for you. May this new month bring about many of God’s blessings your way.  Until next time, God bless you all 🙂

Lean On Him

Image

Thank Me in the midst of the crucible. When things seem all wrong, look for growth opportunities. Especially, look for areas where you need to let go, leaving your cares in My able hands. Do you trust Me to orchestrate your life events as I choose, or are you still trying to make things go according to your will? If you keep trying to carry out your intentions while I am leading you in another direction, you deify your desires.

Be on the lookout for what I am doing in your life. Worship Me by living close to Me, thanking Me in all circumstances.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

-1 Peter 5:6-7

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
-1 Thessalonians 5:18

Priceless Sacrifice

Priceless Sacrifice

The title of this post was actually the name I intended to give my blog. It was taken. My wonderful friend helped me in getting the name of this blog. She also has a blog too. You can check out her blog http://gracehopelove.wordpress.com/ . God is good.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

“Come now, let us reason together,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. -Isaiah 1:18

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace -Ephesians 1:7

Safe In His Hands

Bring Me your weakness, and receive My Peace. Accept yourself and your circumstances just as they are, remembering that I am sovereign over everything. Do not wear yourself out with analyzing and planning. Instead, let thankfulness and trust be your guides through this day; they will keep you close to Me. As you live in the radiance of My Presence, My Peace shines upon you. You will cease to notice how weak or strong you feel, because you will be focusing on Me.The best way to get through this day is step by step with Me. Continue this intimate journey, trusting that the path you are following is headed for heaven.

The Lord gives strength to His people;
the Lord blesses His people with peace. ~Psalm 29:11
 
“The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make His face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn His face toward you
and give you peace.” ~Numbers 6:24-26
 
But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.~Psalm 13:5
 
I can relate to this devotional for today. Sometimes, I get so caught up in life with so many things and thoughts, wondering how my day will go. Whether I will be able to accomplish things throughout the day. The Bible constantly tells us not to worry. Too often, I catch myself worrying about my future and not living in the present. This is an assurance for me and to those who can attest that worrying takes a toll on our lives many times. It helps to know that even in the midst of the storms of life, someone cares and the name is Jesus. There is power in the name.

Reason To Believe

Reason To Believe

What is your name? What do you call yourself? Weak or Strong, Victorious or Defeated. We must remember who we are and who we belong to. You have to know your worth. You can’t be sold when you know you have been already bought. You are worth more than a price tag. Jesus paid the price. Once you know who you are & whose you are that’s all that matters. I am a Child of the most high. We serve a God that is Able. Sometimes, it’s hard to trust and have the faith in what the word says. We lose hope and stumble but God remains the same. There is a reason to believe for it is written “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” -Jeremiah 29:11. We are more than our past mistake and yesterday’s failures. I am more than… You are more than…. Know your place and the one who reigns above all things. Over your circumstances, God reigns. Over my current situation, God still reigns.

“With God, what is broken can be repaired; what is closed can be opened; what is lost can be recovered.” -Mensa Otabil
