Focus to See the Light.

weary

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. Matthew 11:29 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer from trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference between the ones walking in darkness and those of us that are walking in the light is that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, cares for us and about us.

We have a choice. We can carry the world on our shoulders, or we can say, “I give up, Lord; here’s my life. I give you my world, the whole world.” –Bruce Larson

They have no one that has the perfect healing touch. Jesus loves you.

Jesus cares. Jesus is always there. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When we suffer the loss of a loved one we can always take our pain and sadness to Jesus. Do not forget how he weeped at His friends grave.

When we have lost our homes do not forget that Jesus was homeless.

When we are sick do not forget the sick Jesus healed.

When we have been betrayed do not forget how one of His own disciples betrayed Him. When our family and or friends reject us because of our walk towards our heavenly home do not forget how Jesus’ own family rejected and bitterly mocked Him.

When we suffer from exhaustion do not forget how exhausted Jesus was from his preaching and healing.

When we are facing death from a slow disease killer do not forget how Jesus knew about the type of death He must suffer.

Because Jesus walked amongst us He has experienced everything we have and so much more.

Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. —George Müller

So when we are experiencing our difficulties remember to focus on He who is the light of the world. He will comfort you, heal you, encourage you and walk with you through it all because He loves you.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. –Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for lighting my world with Your Divine love, assurance, comfort and strength in my darkest moments. I praise You for this blessing in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Are They Shooting Themselves in the Foot?

HARD WORK

People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,  treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 2 Timothy 3:2-5New International Version

Recently I was talking with a volunteer at a soup kitchen about people arriving early and demanding the doors be open before it is ready, people eating half their plates of food, people coming in drunk, children running around screaming and parents laughing about it.

 

Then there was on news how many churches are closing their doors for soup kitchens and the homeless because they do not feel safe.

 

Are they shooting themselves in the foot and then cry babying because they are so disadvantaged?

They believe welfare is their right and are too lazy to go out and get a job?

Supporting them is unchristlike.

For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10New King James Version

When I was volunteering at soup kitchens and offered them work they would laugh and say : “That is what you people do to pay for my welfare.”

Are these people shooting themselves in the foot?

Instead of cry babying about how disadvantaged they are why not try to get a job and be respectful of the people trying to help you?

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for always providing for me on the condition that I do my part and put forth the effort as well. I praise you in the name of He who did Your work all the way o the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

He Has Been There.

BROKENHEARTED

 

He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. Isaiah 53:3 New King James Version

 

No matter what we are going through, Jesus has already been there.

Have you been betrayed by a loved one?

Was Jesus not betrayed by Judas? Are you rejected by family and friends?

Did Jesus’ family not only reject Him but make fun of Him? Did Peter not deny Christ?

Are you suffering from the loss of a loved one?

How do you think Jesus felt at Lazarus’ grave?

Are you homeless?

Did Jesus and His disciples not sleep outside more than they did in palaces?

Are you hungry ?

How do you think Jesus felt when tempted in the wilderness?

Are you battling corruption and it seems as if everyone is against you?

How do you think Jesus felt with the Scribes and Pharisees?

So no matter what you are experiencing you can unload it on Jesus, He understands because He has already been there.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) that I can always confide in You when sorrows and tribulations are crushing down on me. I thank you in Your loving, healing and caring name. Amen.                                                                                                 

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
