God blessed me with another phenomenal week in the sunshine state where I was given the chance to enlighten others using my God given skills and talents. I am tremendously thankful that God allows me to continue to fulfill my life’s mission through this ministry.
It was a great week because through the holy spirit, I was inspired to feel this way by God himself. I can see that without Jesus Christ in my life, this past week could have been a complete disaster. However I have God in my heart and I won’t let anyone rain on my parade…
How was YOUR week? Are you letting others bring your spirits down? When the world around you starts caving-in, God wants to help. After all, He made you to enjoy life to it’s fullest giving you all you need to make the most of each and every day. It is up to you to use these gifts and spread the light onto others not living with God in their hearts.
Frustration, hatred, impatience are all feelings brought on by our inability to use God’s gifts. We let ourselves feel this way because we are weak, not because we’re imperfect human beings created by a perfect God. Even though the bible tells us we are not perfect, this doesn’t mean we are to assume sin is acceptable. This misconception is at the root of tremendous suffering and will continue to draw pain around us until we all realize it is possible for imperfect beings to live perfect lives when following God’s guidelines.
“15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. 16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:15-16)
Clearly Jesus was tempted just as we are. Is it so farfetched to imagine a day spent without lying, or stealing, or coveting? Of course not! Living a perfect life is easier than it seems when we think of the repercussions. Not lying means you’ll only have to remember the true story. Not stealing or killing will keep you out of jail and might help with your conscience. Not coveting will keep your home and marriage healthy and strong.
“14 Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. 15 Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. ” (Proverbs 4:14-15)
“27 You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.” (Matthew 5:27-30)
Living according to the word of God, I challenge you to try living ONE perfect day this week waking-up in the morning, going to bed at night and living as Jesus would in between. I promise you it will be one of the best days of your life.
Live your life to it’s fullest- Live according to God’s word. Find delight in Him and you will be rewarded accordingly.
We thank you for being the light in our lives
And for watching over us in the day and through the night,
Father we thank you for your love, your forgiveness,
And your wisdom in our lives.
Lord we pray you will continue to guide our footsteps
So that we may live more like you,
Spreading your love throughout the land
And shinning your light bright onto those who surround us.
God we know we are not perfect
But still we ask for your strength in difficult times
So that we may act as you would
Earning passage to life ever lasting.
God we thank you for all that surrounds us!
