Braver Saturday -Time may heal but scars run deep. I know a family. The woman told God that their relationship was going on the back burner. That she would pick up her relationship with Him later. The results? Marriage ripped apart. Families and friends ripped apart. Divorce. Is it all fine now? Sure. Time may heal but scars run deep. Sometimes wrecking your own and other people’s lives is avoidable. If we just listen and obey. Be righteous even when it hurts. Even when you are so deep into it that you feel there is no way out. Cry out to Father. He has the solutions. HE has not left you. If you are in rebellion and you still hear His voice then I encourage you to not take advantage of the grace but tune into His righteousness and let him lead you. Who knows? Maybe He has a different or better plan? A byproduct of relationship with Father is you want to please Him. In this place called Grace, is there still obedience? Did Jesus obey so that we did not have to??? Is that really the grace Father has for His children? To do the wrong thing on purpose is still called rebellion even in grace. Kinda like a little kid who is asked to make their bed by their parents. Perhaps disobedience is at times just immaturity? Father has no condemnation but He does have correction that brings direction. Thoughts? Love-d #moms #marriage #church #jesus #death #life #professional #fit #blogger #faith #blog #instablog
BRAVE Wednesday – So in this busy world we live in with our lives inundated 24/7 with business, busyness, social media distractions….face it…most of us spend more time on a computer or our phone than we do actually interacting with live human beings. In this place of computer land, have you noticed how our hearts can grow insensitive to the needs of others – even those closest to us? Slowly personal bravery to know ourselves and others is eroded by the replacement of humanity through a cold mechanical device.
Seriously. I’m sure this may not be for everyone but I’m sure there are some whose kids want your attention but you are at your computer. There are some whose partners would love to have actual time with you one on one without you looking at your phone – all of these “needs” to be on the computer to make us satisfied….our hearts are growing just a little bit colder and colder…and I LOVE MY MAC…
Today. Be brave. Be wise. Put it down. Retrain your soul to live by the Spirit instead of your 5 senses….
I’m over 50 now and this means I have lived longer than I have left on the planet. When I was 17/18 years old my mom died at the age of 57. YOUNG. Her premature death haunted me for many years…for years I would stay up all night just because I had a fear of going to sleep and not waking up at all….talk about a sick point of view….I had it. At the same time however her death also impacted me positively. I see life precious. I see life short. I see relationships precious. I know when someone treats me poorly it is because they have been treated poorly. I’ve learned (over time) to understand that most of us truly mean to do good….but we many times fall short because of our own personal issues. In other words – if you don’t like me – it may not be about me. Encourage you today to be brave and consider the thoughts in your head that lead you to dislike you OR others. Have mercy for you and those around you. Bravely forgive before you need to forgive and then you will understand that you
So are those who hurt you.
Until soon – d
Seriously. Jesus gave His mom to a friend.
Entrusted the Spn of God’s earth mom to a person He trusted. John lived longer than the others too. And he died of old age. He honored Jesus and Jesus honored him with His precious mom.
We are family.
Love somebody else.
