Every scar tells a story…

Philippians 4:11-13 Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

No Dumping…

No Dumping…

We all have come across this sign at one time or another telling us not to dump anything there, but there is one place you can dump everything you have, your worries, stress, pain, anger, hurt, rejection and the many other things.

God wants you to give all your worries and everything else over to Him. He will carry it all for you if you will let Him. He can handle all you have and more, so drop it all off to Him right now and never pick it up again.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Matthew 17:20 Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.

A conversation with God…

Written by me J.L. Russell 10/11/2016

I asked God to…….give me strength………….He said, you already have it.

I asked God to…….give me His words……….He said, I already have.

I asked God to…….show me His love………..He said, I do every day.

I asked God to…….guide my steps……………He said, I have.

I asked God to…….hear my prayers………….He said, I do.

I asked God to…….lighten my load…………..He said, let it go.

I asked God to…….lift my spirit………………..He said, look up.

I asked God to…… give me authority………….He said you have it in Jesus’ name.

I asked God to……show Himself……………….He said, just open your eyes.

I then looked up and what did I see, my Lord looking back at me. He had a smile as big as can be and open arms to welcome me.

In search of Him I found everything I needed…

1 Peter 1:13-16 Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
